Focus Pocus

Tea bags and breaststrokes. Limp noodles and okey dokes. Clocks wound. Caps hung. At least, respect your anthem. And, stop blaming others for your own faults. Learn to man up and walk the fucking walk. Get off social media. Get back to life. Enjoy what you have. Stop fighting the wrong fight.

Mindless midgets suppressing their moments of fame. Countless cunts simply following the same. Who should we blame? It’s not me or I. There must be a scapegoat to smack in the eye?

Prodded and provoked. An act of war invoked. One desperate gasp as you are being choked. Asleep or awoke. A victim of a cloak. The only way out is to soak in your yoke.

Practice what you preach. Better yet, don’t preach, just practice. Get better each day. Nonsense shouldn’t distract us.

Focus on your goals. Thank those who help. Give back to some. Accumulate the proper kind of wealth.

King Me

The clock is ticking
So few understand
Without a war we haven’t a leg to stand
Our media is corrupt
Journalism no more
Our own President seems like a hypocritical whore

Sony is a screen
Social media smoke if you will
That sound on your roof likely isn’t reindeer
And why panic now
You laughed all along
What fun is there in proving someone wrong
Now enjoy Christmas
Be merry and junk
Maybe Santa will have 18 trillion in the trunk

2013: The SparkNotes

Duck Dynasty is more American than self entitlement. It is more genuine than exchanging disability checks for votes. Who knew a group of dumb rednecks would have the same amount of power and influence as a corrupt union of politicians and corporations? Proof that America may still have a fighting chance both literally and figuratively.

Climate change folks can get to stepping.  The world is cooling.  Seriously, guys.  There is a 99% chance the earth will freeze over before we are burnt crisp from heat.  Examining climate in 10, 30, or 100 year increments can be likened to examining a globally traded stock based on 1 day’s performance.  With that said, I certainly think man made climate change does occur.  I just don’t think most people understand how insignificant the change is.  If you hellbent at dwelling on something, perhaps you could start with the radiation that should consume eastern Asia and the Pacific Ocean over the course of the next quarter century.

Government shutdowns are silly.  They are nearly as silly as people voting on candidates based on whether they have a (D) or an (R) beside their name.

Journalism is the equivalent of gossip through prayer.

The online currency craze that we are going through blows my mind.  Excluding junkies, what sort of person would exchange physical money for invisible money?  It seems absurd to me.  Then again, paper and plastic is a normal means for everyday transactions.  Silly people.

Benghazi.  We knew.  We lied.  We covered it up poorly.  We lied some more.  People die.  Shit happens.  Wipe it in the press and move on.

3D printing is nearly here.  I need one.  And a sugar momma.  And a trust fund.

A new Pope was elected.  You could place bets on who was going to become Pope.  If that isn’t patriotic, then I don’t know what is.  I dare say he has his work cut out for him.

Edward Snowden helped open our eyes to the police state we live in.  People are welcome to label him a patriot or a traitor.  I suppose both are fair statements.  I’m not sure how I would have handled it if I were in his shoes.

America is still at war.  I’m not sure if anyone knows who we are at war with, but we are still fighting.  Project Drones 4 Humanity is in full effect.

January’s Resolutions Bring February’s Redistributions

Out with the old and in with the new.  Say goodbye to 2013 and to all the times you have been looked past, skipped over, and done wrong.  It is a new year and with new years come new resolutions.  If you are like most people, then you outline a few things you intend to improve about yourself for the upcoming year.  If you are like most people, then you also forget about your list by the end of January.

Why do we even bother to think of things that we intend to improve on?  It isn’t very likely that any of us took time to really critique ourselves.  Even if we did take time to reflect upon the things we did poorly in 2013, I am unsure how that would help make our resolutions more accurate.

The truth is that resolutions are just plain silly.  People that wait for the first of the year, week, or month to indulge in their new philosophies find themselves making excuses before they ever put a single foot forwards.  Don’t be part of that 30% that is waiting on the government to distribute resolutions others made.  Be part of the 70% that can make this country great again.  If you want to improve yourself, then do it.  Don’t make a list and wait on a date to start the pledge.  Whenever you find the initiative, drop what you are doing, and make that Day 1 of the new you.

I’m sure a few of you may be curious what my own resolutions are for this year.  I intend on being just as fucking awesome this year as I was last year.  I hope you will, too.
