The best laid plans...

There's no escape

My Top Ten New Year's Resolutions For 2014

1. I resolve to treat all complete fucking idiots with more courtesy and respect.

2. I resolve to stop fucking swearing.

3. I resolve to stop procrastinating… Whenever.

4. I resolve to be more open minded about anyone else's opinions, before I summarily dismiss them.

5. I resolve to eat healthier junk food.

6. This Space For Rent.

7. I resolve to stop making pointlessly repetitive lists.

8. I resolve to stop making pointlessly repetitive lists.

9. I resolve to not do any resolutions.

10. Head 'em up, move 'em out, Move 'em on, head 'em out... Rawhide! .

Now that's it's 2014, it's time for me to reveal MY BIGGEST SECRET...

I have to get something done before the end of the year but I forgot what it was

The clock's ticking down to the final moments of 2013.

Well, I guess I'm fucked.

I'll just have to hunker down and deal with the consequences. Hopefully, I can make it all the way through 2014.

Be brave, they say, take it one day at a time. Tomorrow begins the first day of the rest of your life.

Once more into the breech, dear friends. Fill it up and Happy New Year.

I won't be watching them tonight, but it is so fucking ridiculous...

Along with all of the usual suspects of right wing sycophants, faux-redneck duck dupers, as well as an entirely whole host of knuckle-dragging and mind-bogglingly hokey-assed entertainment, the folks at Fox News tonight, on their "All-American New Year's Eve" show, also plans to have England's Sarah Brightman and Scotland's own Susan Boyle as part of their "All-American" line up.

I guess no one will care as long as they're white, right?

I'm afraid that it's time to come to this, I have to say goodbye...

TO 2013!!!!

Bye Bye, Jim Schwartz

You tossed away a perfectly winnable season, now you're gone.

Time to bring in a coach who can put all of that talent to good use.

The test of one's character isn't how one handles success, it's how one handles adversity.

That's complete bullshit, by the way. Obviously thunked up by some rich motherfucker, trying to get the rubes to resolve themselves to the status of lowly, underpaid and under appreciated wage slaves, working for the man who squirrels away filthy riches on the backs of their labor.

We're about to fuck you over, the rich assholes have announced, and that's pretty much pissing on them and calling it a spring shower.

No fucking way that a CEO is worth 150 times more than the AVERAGE employee. Ninety-eight percent of the wealth isn't enough for these greedy fucks, they want it all!

The New Gilded Age is upon us, with no sign of it ever abating. The Ownership Class is retreating behind walls of stone and silicon, as they equip their trigger-happy police thugs with latest in military accoutrement.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't suppose what will be the thing to rile up the masses in a way they'll consider Madame Guillotine's implement of social correction as a reasonable solution. But alas, there is no Bastille to storm, La Marseillaise would never be considered a catchy enough tune, belting from the jukeboxes of Outer Podunkistan.

Arming the rabble hasn't solved anything, except for us all to invent better ways to wash our blood into the nation's gutters, all with a helping handful of fear-induced incentives from the NRA.

Suffer, ye, my people… Believe in the myth that you're all alone, that's the American way. Never mind that our futures have been stolen from us and we refuse to summon the will to re-confiscate them.

Better to continue our headlong slide into oblivion than change our ways, to share with those who are classified as the undeserving.

Principles, Jesus, Freedom and all.

Gawd, this country needs an enema.

One last thing… About handling success: Give someone everything and see how they handle THAT. They have more choices than those suffering with adversity. The tester fails when they get everything and choose to get even more, to the detriment of all.

That's how you judge character!

You need a chuckle nt
