DNC Wraps Up

Okay here we go, I’m just gonna come out and say it. I think Obama did a hell of a job last night. His speech was well crafted and he delivered it expertly. It didn’t come off especially slick or anything. Everything just seemed to work, from the speech to the spectacle. Even the “Barackopolis” [...]

Sports Rivalries, The Clintons, and Politicking Thug Style

I was fooled by the Clintons yet again. Actually this time I let myself believe in the Clintons and I was simply disappointed. I don’t know why I’m surprised. The most effective way to illustrate what I’m talking about is probably a sports analogy. I am from the Philadelphia area and am an Eagles fan. [...]

What Is This Site?

I guess I should have addressed this before. I mean I know the answer because it’s my site, but the two or three of you who’ve stumbled across it may have some questions. Yes, it really is a tee shirt site. It will feature my original designs as well as give you the opportunity to [...]

“I love my kids.” “You’re SUPPOSED to love your kids.” My apologies to Chris Rock

I can just see it now: SASHA OBAMA: Hi, Prime Minister of China. BARACK OBAMA: Daddy’s working right now, honey. SASHA: I want a bowl of ice cream. BARACK: Honey, Daddy needs to have grown-up talk with the Prime Minister. SASHA: Do you like rice, Mr. Prime Minister? Have you ever been to P.F. Changs? [...]

B.H.O.’s Campaign Song

Here are the lyrics for those of you who like to follow along: The more you see the less you know The less you find out as you go I knew much more then than I do now Neon heart, day-glow eyes The city lit by fireflies They’re advertising in the skies And people like [...]

Convention Kick-Off

Was the former First Lady slighted by B.H.O.’s selection of Joe Biden as a running mate? I’m sure these two beauty queens would think so. I don’t typically agree with B.H.O.’s view on things (I am looking forward to the day when Oprah has to take time out of her show and apologize to everyone [...]

I Guess Parenting IS Hard

I am one of those people who believes that it does not take a village to raise a child; it takes a mother and a father.  But after watching these videos, maybe the village ought to step in and take over. Notice how the parents make sure they’re not in the frame, while their darling [...]

To B.H.O.: Nice Try

Come on, Barack. I guess I just don’t think like you or your supporters. I would actually prefer a leader who has proven himself a success. Should I wait for some slobbering jackass who is struggling to keep up with his mortgage to throw his hat in the ring? Yea, let’s give that guy a [...]

Eight Gold Medals — Now What?

I’m probably one of the few people on this side of this one but what the hell, I’m used to that.  Yes, Michael Phelps won eight Gold Medals this Olympics, and I am sure he and his family are very proud of his accomplishment, as they should be.  But for the rest of us, so [...]

Home Invasion (Stranger Than Fiction)

A Tampa, FL man was the target of a botched home invasion over the weekend. Jimmy Brock, 54, of Tampa was sitting in his favorite chair enjoying a movie late Saturday evening, when his home was broken into. “I was just sitting there watching Scream, and I guess I had dozed off,” Brock said, “then [...]

On The Down Low?

I know the whole Michael Vick/ dog fighting thing is old news, but I didn’t have a blog when it all went down, and I think I have a little different take on the whole thing.  Maybe I watch too much TV, maybe I’m a bit too conspiratorial in my thought.  At least a little [...]

A Couple Recommendations

I can’t promise you’ll be just like me if you take me up on these, but who knows.  I have been compensated in no way for any of the following suggestions. EAT THERE:  Chipotle Mexican Grill.  I have raved about this place for over 6 years now.  Everyone I have sent there has gotten on their knees [...]

A Little Political, And A Little Olympical

The Olympics kicked off with the highest rated Opening Ceremonies in recent memory.  Everytime I catch an event, the USA seems to be doing really well.  But it’s boring.  I like cheering for the USA, but there is a large part of me that is left unsatisfied; the part of me that loves to root [...]

Superman’s Cape

I am kind of tied up with my week old twins but wanted to post some-thing.  Here is a short story I wrote a couple of years ago called Superman’s Cape.  It may reek of self-indulgence, but it did inspire one of my tee shirt designs.  Anyway here it is: “See that house there?” Bobby’s [...]
