Admonishing Batman

September 23, 2014

0

Batman lives in my house. Not Bruce Wayne of DC Comic, Adam West/Micheal Keaton/Christian Bale/Ben Affleck fame (no disrespect George Clooney/Val Kilmer). No, this Batman is a dog, the son of my Chihuahua Coco. Let’s call it a youthful indiscretion on her part. I call it that because it sounds better than admitting the truth; […]

Profit or Profess? Realities Collide When Duck Dynasty Meets GQ Magazine

December 26, 2013

Public relations manipulation. Last week I did a little random sampling of cable TV news shows as research into the biggest waterfowl-related scandal since Daffy and Donald were photographed topless in the August ’78 Outdoor Magazine, Duckgate, the Duck Dynasty/GQ story that only deaf/mute under-rock dwellers and Himalayan sherpas are unaware of at this point. […]

A Wee Little Bit O’ Politics

October 16, 2013

0

I haven’t written much about politics lately. I’ve been discouraged this year by my beloved democratic party, the way leftward leaning pols like Pelosi, Nelson, Menendez and the sitting president, suddenly started sounding like Darth Cheney, ‘Let’s Bomb Syria! Chemical Weapons! (Weapons of Mass Destruction?) Gasp & Egads! What about our CREDIBILITY? Liberals for war. […]

Wanna look behind the curtain? Politics is marketing in its purest form. This story is about politics and entertainment colluding for viewers and votes.

From the News Star dot com – Rumor: GOP recruiting Willie Robertson for Congress – http://goo.gl/hq0iNR You gotta love Louisiana politics… Brilliant! Kudos to the political consultant behind this. Willie Roberston isn’t running for Congress or anything else, he’s currently having too much fun being one of the most famous people on the planet. The […]

Private School(s) for Sinners Like Me Part 2

May 29, 2013

As the 1980’s got started, my comic book crime spree ended. I got busted by a grocery store manager, but not just any grocery store manager. No, I had the misfortune of getting caught in an act of shoplifting by a grocery store manager who also happened to be a fellow member of the Bastrop […]

Private School(s) for Sinners Like Me

May 23, 2013

I found myself in private school because I was a thief, a shoplifter to be exact. It started when I was very young, 8 or 9 nine years old I guess. I didn’t steal jewels or cash, I was a comic book thief. My grandmother shopped for groceries once a week at the same Safeway […]
