my life space
has become a literary soup.
A child here that
does not understand.
Another child there,
that decided to
collide with the world and life.
She wants to share the
world in herself.
I have a daughter
who is learning to be snarky.
She has the world in her eyes and
not sure what to do next and
then she gets her legs tangled up,
from trying to grow up.
And my son,
trying to stretch out
the world and hiding
behind the box of
The soup is hot,
and the crab claw reaches out
and clips my nose.

Tell me please, when the last Stanley Cup, World Cup or World Series or for that matter Super Bowl was won with the help of cheerleaders. Our economy is in the doldrums, our President and Congress have yet to come to grips with the simple way to correct everything, and believe me there is a simple way to correct it. Where are the cheerleaders? And what are they doing to ensure that my paycheck along with my peers, colleagues, family members and friends gets any smaller. What are the cheerleaders doing to make them bigger? I don't need all of the cheering and shouting from a distance, that does nothing to help me, in my lifetime, I estimate that I have earned about a million dollars in taxable income and several thousand more in under the table collections that many of us entrepreneurs, malcontents, and scoundrels are notorious for. Not one penny, not a single red cent was the result of a cheerleader. There is quite a bit of money in my portfolio, all individually held, as I have learned a long time ago, if I do the work, take the risks, then the rewards should be mine to distribute, I don't need a cheerleader. I will take risks, and will always take risks, I will accept a hand out only, and only if I have the opportunity to pass on the good deed to someone else that may benefit, after I have gotten back up. I will accept love, and compassion, an occasional kick in the pants; however those are handed out by folks that care, that love you and have a vested interest in some of your success, as a rising tide raises all boats.
In a sporting event, I came to watch the sporting event, if I go to a sporting event, I go to watch the sporting event, if my child is in the sporting event then I will watch my child, I am not present to enjoy the distractions. Really why would I find enjoyment watching a bunch of fourteen year old girls jump up and down, screaming and shouting. Shoot I live with five members of the opposite sex, do I really need extra screaming and shouting. And mind you three of them are dealing with some sort of hormone imbalance and two of them have some sort of narcissistic complex that they are trying to live through.
In a few words, get a life. Earn your keep, get out and do something, anything, earn your own money, fame, fortune.
No, cheerleaders do absolutely nothing for me. Thank me, help me, and honour me. I rather like my humility; I really enjoy my peace and quiet. I really don't need the din intensified by additional shouting and cheering. I can toot my own horn, thank you very much, and I prefer not to.

I really still don't get the halftime show of the Superbowl. It seems really anti climatic to having two brothers coach the opposite teams. I commend and congratulate both of them. We have come a long way since the Vince Lombardi football league back in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I will not use Facebook for these reasons, for the most part it is nothing more than a picture sharing, tell the world what you are doing with questionable privacy constraints. If you need to share something, then call me, email me, send me a card. I have been Facebook free for eighteen months and can I tell about the freedom I have. My cell phone is the same number that I have had for the past ten years, I have had the same carrier as well. I can be reached on my cell, through this blog, and a couple of others, my email which has been the same for the past ten years. I value my privacy and the only social sites I will be using in the future are those that are narrowly focused, you can find me on Goodreads and Linkedn and Google+, also I cannot make any money on Facebook and the stock is priced entirely too high presently, a good purchase point is below 15$ a share, yes I even hand out stock tips from time to time, please follow my other directions, do not accept this as advice,
Nikon Coolpix L810 16MP 26X Optical Zoom Black Digital Camera (Google Affiliate Ad)I want to write a little about the recently past election, this was a sad event, because I really feel like nobody has learned anything and the left is busy pounding their chest and the right is crying in their beer/coffee/tea/soda. Stop both of you. Neither of your candidates were all that fantastic, as you are not looking for the greater good of your country, and yes this is one instance where collectivism needs to apply, as we have come too far in the past 200 odd years to descend into some sort of third world anarchy and commence eating our young. And yes the President does not have alot to do with many things, in fact he or she controls nothing, but should be able to suggest, initiate, lead and should do so, I will save another volley for Congress, for another day, for they are not blameless, either.

So I say all of that to say, give the man a break, let some of this shake out, work its way out, and for heavens sake, stop bringing up this torture thing, I am sick of hearing about it, do you understand. We did what needed to be done, to do what we had to do, I imagine some of that was going to be payback for them fools aiding in the New York city downtown face lift at the cost of several thousand innocent souls that nobody could get past the lobby in time. And as far as the automobile industry and the current problems that they are having here and now. What did you guys think, gas was going to be cheap forever, and that we all should drive these huge behemoths every where we go. Come on, all they are doing is making the road unsafe for the rest of us. I like my late model sedan, thank you very much.
But anyway, between the unions and the corporate hot shots that thought that we all should purchase an Escalade with 21" wheels (dubs as they call them in one of my old neighborhoods) you fools lack vision. The rank and file really need to pile the two groups of you together and perform a world class action lawsuit on you all for corporate malfeasance and corrupt business practices. They then sent their snot nosed lobbyists to Washington, so they would not fix things like fuel standards and the like.
I think people that drive Hummers are selfish fops trying to make up for social inadequacies by driving something that could over the opposition in the back lot.
Oh and back to that Escalade, why should anyone pay a markup of 75 % for a vehicle that serves no useful purpose except to take up two parking spaces and make it difficult to see around to avoid on coming traffic.
And by the way, gas prices are going to go up, 3$ a gallon painful, you will see it by the end of the summer. You can bet on it.
