Nobody likes women more than I do…

So I’d like to ‘give’ you…

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s DAY

They consider the other 364 days ‘MAN’ DAYS.


The only difference ?

THEIRS is a celebration !

MEN’s IS A CONDEMNATION !

ME… I take it (or give it) in stride,

I DON’T CARE WHO’S ON TOP !!!

Farewell Pepper Paire-Davis

004 - RIP DEADpepper-paire-davis

Legendary Forties female baseball star !

Paire-Davis was a model for the character
played by Geena Davis in the 1992 hit
‘A League of Their Own,’
which also starred Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna and Tom Hanks
as the crusty manager who shouted the famous line,
‘there’s no crying in baseball!’
In 1944, Paire-Davis joined the league,
created out of fear that World War II would interrupt
Major League Baseball, and played for 10 seasons.

005 - rest in peace flowers

WHY WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE ?


Enveloped by political gridlock, President Barack Obama
is reaching out to rank-and-file Republicans,
meeting for dinner with GOP senators
Wednesday night and then visiting Capitol Hill next week
for separate meetings with Senate and House Republicans.

Couldn’t these meetings, and reaching out,
have taken place months ago ?
(is this a reaction to popularity polls?)
Did the president need to wait for a
national crisis to ‘make friends’ ?
MEETINGS LIKE THESE,
especially with the other party members,
SHOULD BE SCHEDULED AT REGULAR INTERVALS
WITHOUT ANYTHING ON THE TABLE !

ROOKIE MISTAKE ?
or is common sense alien to Washington?
(just fix it, no more tax please)
((cut foreign aid & new TSA uniforms?))

addendum…
Perhaps they’re just ‘blind’ (or stupid) in DC,

“not my job, man”

The ‘hobby’ drones danger was pointed out by RIP
a year or 2 ago, NOW (finally) someone in charge agrees ?

THE ‘BUCK’ STOPS HERE ?

WASHINGTON – The victims and survivors of 9/11
are being forced again to sacrifice –
this time by the sequestration budget cuts
that are dipping into revenue set aside
for ailing first responders & using it for deficit reduction.




Standard operating procedure -

cut the outrageous & publicize it
to point the blame at someone else !

HOW ABOUT CUTTING FREE LUNCHES FOR CONGRESS,
AND THEIR FREE PARKING ?
CUT FOREIGN AID BY 10 or 20% !

Whenever they need more money for taxes
around here, they threaten to cut school buses…
a place where it ‘hurts’…

THE BASTARDS !

I’ve even heard it suggested that the Democrats
would love to drag this out to mid-term elections
and press for more Democrats so Obama
can get the job done…
if true, it’s shameful !

‘GAGGLES’ ?

I saw a ‘grouping’ of red
and it was very reminiscent
of a ‘grouping of
green seen
in a better-than-received super hero film.

006 - gaggle-red-cardinals

YELLOW ‘SMOKE’ WON’T STOP THE CARDINALS,

BUT THE ‘GREEN GUYS’ BETTER WATCH OUT !

ORIGINALLY,

I WAS ANNOYED AT DENNIS RODMAN

008 - dennis rodman

PULLING A ‘HANOI’ JANE FONDA !
(hers was traitorous)

009 - hanoi jane fonda

Visiting world threat North Korea’s leader
and returning with praise & an ‘awesome’
for a basketball fan who’s considered a despot
and threat to world peace.
Media coverage DID ‘paint’ him as ‘negative.

I was turned around by his interview with
George Stephanopolus.
Rodman was put on-the-spot deflecting
‘loaded’ suggestions that he was naive
to the real North Korea situation.

These type questions, feet-to-the-fire,
“HOW COULD YOU?,
are never asked of our ambassadors & diplomats
who do business with ‘evil’ regimes
with just as many human rights violations !
They seem able to deal with China and
barbarous arab countries considered
(oil) friendly,
even with human rights violations,
stonings, & lashes.  Places where the victims
of rape are severely punished
and NOT have the same questions asked of them !
WE’VE BACKED THE ‘WRONG’ SIDE QUITE OFTEN !!!

AND AS FAR AS N. KOREA’S POLITICAL PRISONERS ?
The USA openly runs a little place called GITMO,
and that’s just the one we know about.

Rodman got his foot-in-the-door !
Places where Washington & the CIA can’t !
What’s the matter with ’sports diplomacy’ ?
I seem to remember a thing called
‘ping-pong diplomacy’ that opened China.

TALK IS GOOD !!!
So the North Korean guy a little nutty.
(less nutty than his father)
No one wants (nuclear) war.
North Korea drops just one,

and China would beat us in retaliating
and leveling the entire country.

We’re much too good a customer to lose !

010 - obama silly phone

OBAMA WAS ‘INVITED’ TO ‘CALL’…

PERHAPS OBAMA SHOULD GIVE HIM A CALL
AND START A DIALOG

(Rodman’s personal message delivered)

JUST PLAIN CRAZY…

THE LATEST ?

They want to ban alcohol for,
on the job, delegates at the UN !

011 - drunks at bar UN

FOOT-IN-THE-DOOR…

Next thing you know

they’ll be ‘cutting off’ CONGRESS,

and then the police !!!

012 - hillary goofy

(it does explain alot)

Can drink,
but can’t smoke or have large sugary sodas !

PRIORITIES MAY BE BECOMING A PROBLEM !

014 - e-cigarette

The popularity of ‘e-cigarettes’ is booming,

from a few thousand users in 2006

to a predicted $1billion in sales this year.

Utah wants to tax the devices at 86 percent

- the same rate as other tobacco products.

Is this an example of greedy,
idiot politicians, or what ?

They
AREN’T tobacco products,
might as well tax lollipops at 86% !
If anything, they are a health aid !
ARE NICOTENE PATCHES & GUM
TAXED ACCORDINGLY ?


On the one hand,
smoking is bad for you, a burden on healthcare.

(the purchase SHOULD come with a tax credit)
On the other hand,
Quitting smoking reduces tax money
states have come to depend on.


Just wait for the hybrid & electric cars
to become more common.  Gas taxes pay for
road & infrastructure up keep.
Once there’s no going back,
expect to be
‘ASSESSED’ for your ‘gas saver’.
THEY GET YOU ONE WAY OR ANOTHER !

ADDENDUM…
Everyone I know that have tried e-cigs
have trashed them as worthless !

IDIOT  !!!

BERKELY COUNCILMAN PROPOSES

EMAIL TAX TO SAVE POST OFFICE !

015 - tax-empty wallet uncle sam


Taxes, the solution to all our problems !
Instead, I propose we TAX
all the councilmen & women !


I don’t know where he’s getting
a ‘free-ride’ on email.  I have a hefty bill
with my cable company each month,
and I do believe they already

ADD ON TAXES !!!

(tax ps3, x-box, netflix, & e-cigs while you’re at it)

They’d tax the air,
but then the air might have to meet a ’standard’ !

THE BASTARDS !!!


.
ADDENDUM…

The simple solution…
Ban
EVERY gov’t office NATIONWIDE from using
any other delivery service besides the post office !
ONE EXECUTIVE ORDER SHOULD DO IT !

I’M SURPRISED CRIMINALS

HAVEN’T MADE THESE

FASHIONABLE AGAIN…

The CLASSIC cigarette holder…

016 - cig holder - aristocrat

or for the ladies…

017 - cig holder - long woman

or for the ’stoners…

018 - cig holder - classy stoner

The police forensic shows
give the impression of ‘case closed’
if they find cigarette butts with the tiniest
bit of spit able to be used for DNA testing.


CIGARETTE HOLDERS, NO SPIT,
SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN YOUR ‘CRIMINAL GEAR’
ALONG WITH GLOVES & A HOODIE !


019 - hoodie - no face

ADDENDUM…

Thank god I’m one of the good guys !

SHOCKING !!!

Mom takes her 9 year old daughter
shopping at
VICTORIA’S SECRET !

THIS MAKES THE NEWS ?

VC is not slutty or sexy,

IT’S AN UNDERWEAR STORE !

020 - vic secret underwear


YOUR MOM SHOPS THERE FER CHRISSAKES !
Network television has no problem
broadcasting their ‘angel’ runway shows !
It’s practically family entertainment.


SEXY ? SLUTTY ?

FREE INTERNET PORN
HAS THE MARKET CORNERED !

021 - nun-online porn

A woman may walk away
thinking her knickers make her feel
a certain way,  but how ADULT is the ‘mall store’
if there is no embarrassment or  trepidation to enter ?


SOMEBODY’S FOOLING SOMEONE,
but the number of ‘kid friendly’ garments
shouldn’t shock anyone.


Their motto should be…

WE TOOK THE SEXY OUT OF UNDERWEAR !

ADDENDUM…
Want to take a step lower ?
(embarrass yourself?)
Try Frederick’s of Hollywood


022 - frederick lingerie

misplaced ANGER !!!!

I guess I’m a bad person for not sympathizing,
and not personally being in that position,
it still surprises me when parents
(including Carrol O’Connor)
want to blame & kick-the-ass
of the
MAIN person to blame for the
drug use or injury or death of their little ‘angel’…
THE PERSON WHO SUPPLIED THE DRUGS !!!

I GUESS IT’S EASIER THAN BLAMING THEMSELVES !
I don’t necessarily put the blame with the parents
(you can do everything right),
but you can usually spot a ’stoner’ of any age…
THERE MAY HAVE BEEN CLUES !

023 - stoned young teen


If you think it is ‘growing pains’, think again !

KIDS CAN FIND DRUGS,
KIDS ARE STUPID,
KIDS OVERDOSE
WITH NO ONE FORCING THEM !


WATCH, LOOK, LISTEN, SMELL AND ACT

BEFORE, NOT AFTER !!!

024 - taylor swift1

TAYLOR SWIFT has ANOTHER new boyfriend !!!
I’m not implying she ‘burns’ thru men
or is looking for a perfect ‘fit’
(wink,wink),
OKAY, SO SHE’S LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE !

GREAT NEWS FOR ME !

025 - taylor swift22

MY TURN IS COMING UP SOON.

SHE’S ALMOST UP TO THE “R’S”.

-

ADDENDUM…

I heard ‘good things’ when she ‘went-thru’ the K’s
(right Kent)

026 - ad   forgotten hits

YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING !

Vermont newspaper criticized
for using
‘racist’ slogan on posters
to cheer on high school basketball team

027 - not racist - fry rice

The Caledonian Record published a poster
using a print type associated with Chinese calligraphy
for the words ‘fry Rice’ to urge St Johnsbury Academy
to beat Rice Memorial High School
in a state championship game.

I CHECKED WITH THE RIP Renfield CORRESPONDENT
FOR ASIAN AFFAIRS…. formerly of TV’s  GET SMART…

‘THE CRAW’ (” not ‘craw’, it ‘craw’ “)

028 - get smart- the craw

He was dumfounded at the ‘nitpicking’,
noting that if they said
‘fly rice’ instead of ‘fry rice’
THAT would be racist, or at least insulting.
‘FRY RICE’ is just wordplay !

addendum…
Ive  never heard of an uproar
from any of the Italian Organizations
for calling someone
‘pizza face’.
It’s not directed at the culture,
it’s directed at a ‘delicious’ food item.

PICK BETTER BATTLES
WHERE YOU DON’T LOOK AS FOOLISH !

You belittle actual racism !

MAKE-UP WORKS WONDERS…

Howd’ya like to wake-up to this ?

029 - kathy griffin-no makeup-yechh

In case you didn’t recognize her,
it’s
KATHY GRIFFIN !
After all that plastic surgery,
you’d think she’d want to look good in public.

WITHOUT MAKE-UP,
SHE WOULDN’T EVEN ‘PLACE’ IN A
KATHY GRIFFIN LOOK-ALIKE CONTEST !

030 - kathy griffin-cute 1031 - kathy griffin-cute 22

As quirky & quirky-looking as she appears on-stage
(but still oddly attractive)
I still figured, under the right circumstances,
I’d ‘throw-her-one’ !!!

WITH AN ‘AU NATUREL’ WELL ‘SCRUBBED’ FACE ?

I’D BE ‘TAKING-ONE-FOR-THE-TEAM’ !!!
.

I’M FEELING PRETTY PLEASED WITH MYSELF,
even though I should feel stupid
for not doing it sooner.

From that lost-misplaced credit card,
cancellation, and re-issue…
I HAD TO CALL MY SATELLITE RADIO PROVIDER,
SIRIUS-XM
to update credit card info for their
automatic monthly charge.

032 - sirius-xm logo

LOOKING-UP THE CUSTOMER SERVICE
PHONE NUMBER, I NOTICED PEOPLE
TALKING ABOUT A  LONG-TIME PROMOTION,
$77/year instead of $14.95+tax/month.

What the heck… long-time customer me gave it a shot !
(and I’m not above playing the ’stroke card’)
((I sit here and do alot of ’strokin’ these days))

With tax, & monthly, I had been paying – $204/year.
A pre-paid 1 year subscription is $169+tax.
The $77 promotion is now $86+tax/year.

THEY GAVE IT TO ME !

I went from $204/year to $94/year !
NOT BAD !!!  REALLY WORTH IT NOW !
(especially a good deal, I only listen to 1 station)

033 - ron fez logo

But, it’s my business to remember next March 1st
to pay full-freight next year, or call for a deal again.

HEY, I GOT SCREWED OUT OF 3/4 OF FEBRUARY !
I WAS PAID UP-TO-DATE !

addendum…

I hear that if you call to cancel service
they entice you to stay with 3 months free.

.
.
double addendum…

I used the ‘get-a-human-on-the-phone’ link
for their phone number and I was
takin’-care-of-business in under-a-minute !

(15 minutes for Social Security)

JUST PASSING ON

ANOTHER GREAT DEAL…

Flash drives have been available in
small (physical) size for a while now.
They’re coming now in larger capacities
at much lower prices !

035  - 16 gig dongle

8 gigs – $8    16 gigs – $13   32 gigs – $25
(I’ve seen them 64 gig & 128 gig for a price)

036 - 16 gig dongle on finger

I’m upgrading to a 16 gig from a 4 gig
that took forever to fill just 3 gigs.
I leave it permanently plugged into a USB port.
ANYTHING of importance is easily backed-up
onto an off-computer storage device.

I DON’T LIKE LOSIN’ NUTHIN’ !
I’m going to copy the 4 gigs to the 16 gig,
and give the 4 gig to my daughter.

Basically, these were created for the ‘flush’ profile,
to not catch (& break) ports on your tablet,
ipad, or other device.  Great for a laptop too.
It’s never in the way.  I DO prefer a standard flash
if the data needs to be transported,
easier to not lose that way.

ONE MORE USE…
If you have, or are considering a CHROMEBOOK,
or other ‘flash-memory’ instant-on laptop,
the flash RAM on them is minimal,
them opting to use ‘the cloud’ for more
memory intensive ’saves’.
For $25, you triple your storage capacity !

(as long as you have a USB port open)

addendum…

The prices in my examples came from
www.buy.com now known as www.Rakuten.com
(either link gets you there)
FREE SHIPPING on many items,
including the ‘flash-dongle’ I bought)
.
.
.

I SHOULDA HELD BACK A FEW ITEMS
FOR NEXT ISSUE, BUT IT WAS
GOING ALONG SO WELL,
I GOT CARRIED AWAY !

I GUESS I JUST GOT THAT WAY
FROM ‘CELEBRATING’ WOMEN.

I even ‘respectfully’ kept the nudes to myself.

enjoy…

SLEEP LATE TOMORROW
