Some Truth About Saint Patrick


So with 50% of my ancestry being from Ireland, I often get riled up about St. Patrick's day and all the bullshit that surrounds the guy. I get the day is all about Irish pride and really just morphed into an excuse to party, but considering the facts, I find it to be more insulting to the people of Ireland and those who come from Irish heritage. 

"What's in a name?" Yeah, lets start there. Dude isn't a saint. Catholics/Christians are always taking a hardline on things, yet they have let it slide that Patrick is called "Saint Patrick" and gets all the hoopla of being a saint. Except he was never officially canonized as a saint. So it's just bullshit.

Then there is the big myth and/or metaphor that Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. It's always been pushed that the snakes represent sin and the pagans and it was an easy bullshit story to push since no one had seen any snakes in Ireland. You see, all evidence suggests that post-glacial Ireland never had snakes. “At no time has there ever been any suggestion of snakes in Ireland.”

Patrick was born in Great Britain, to parents who were both Italian. Yes, Patrick was not Irish. Not at all. 

When he was 16 he was captured by pirates, taken to Ireland and enslaved. He learned the language and traditions and after six years he escaped and returned to England. He studied Christianity and was ordained. He went back to Ireland as a missionary, where he would use the knowledge of the pagan rituals and traditions to help him force Christianity on the people there.

Listen, you want to drink, go ahead. You want to eat Corned Beef, go ahead. You want to be proud your family came from Ireland, or that you're from Ireland, be fucking proud. But know why you're proud. And don't be proud because of a whole bunch of make-believe.

Bill Burr is the Hero We Need


It seems to be a quarterly event that Twitter gets upset and tries to attack and "cancel" comedian Bill Burr. What did he do that was so bad? Nothing! He got a gig announcing Grammy winners for the virtual part of the Grammy's that isn't the big TV production and a bunch of awards that white America and mainstream America/media doesn't give a shit about. Oh, and he made jokes. Including jokes at his inability to pronounce names correctly and the fact that his pasty white-male self was up there giving out awards for a number of "Latin" categories.

The fact that he went with a Dokken reference was hilarious!

So, lead by white people, the cries of "Bill Burr is a racist" came flooding onto Twitter. 

Just last week on one of his podcasts he was mocking the people who were acting shocked that the "Royal Family" might be racist after hearing one of them asked "How dark" will the baby be,  Burr went on to say if there was any proof you needed how races should mix if a couple is so inclined, look no further than "my two beautiful kids." He then mocked his own "pasty," "awful" looks and gave his lovely, (black) wife Nia all the credit for their children's beauty.

If you know anything about Bill Burr and his comedy, he makes fun of everyone. EVERYONE. And he does not apologize for any of it. 

The right will tell you that "cancel culture" is a weapon of the left. It isn't. It's used by both sides, both parties, as Congressman, Jamie Raskin pointed out last week, calling out fellow Congressman, Jim Jordan.

That being said, this latest bullshit, calling Bill Burr a racist is coming from the left. A very clueless, ignorant, loves to be triggered, left. A heavily white, left that loves to say 'look at me! I'm a good white person!' Thing is, if you have to say it, you aren't! 

Then I saw this shit, that Bill's wife Nia quote tweeted:

This dude just called Nia Renee Hill, Bill Burr's "minority sex servant" and that Burr owns her. Not only is that some of the most racist shit I have heard/read, but its some of the most sexist shit I've heard/read. So all you triggered fucking assholes, feel free to "cancel" Clayburn Griffin!

The last time people tried and greatly failed at "cancelling" Bill Burr was after his SNL appearance. That time he got it from both the right and left and mainly white women from both sides. But guess what...Besides doing his job as a comic and being funny, everything he said was true.

Not all heroes wear capes. To bastardize a Batman Quote, Bill Burr isn't the hero we deserve right now, but he's the hero we need.

America Fought the British, Just to Dream About Being British


  This map shows the territories that were or are under British rule at one time. The Royal family made it's fortune stealing from people. Rape, Pillage and Plunder was their business. Before the New York Yankees, the British Monarchy was the Evil Empire. They built their power and wealth through oppression and theft, racism and violence. The problems of places like India, Pakistan, Scotland and Ireland, just to name a few can be laid directly at the feet of England and it's beloved Royal Family. So after the big Oprah interview with "Meghan and Harry," all the pearl clutching going on in the media rings hollow. And all the triggered outrage on social media makes it seem like a whole lot of you haven't read a fucking History book!

  America was built on getting away from the British Monarchy. We won the Revolutionary, took our Independence and yet so many Americans, including the media are still licking the Crown's balls. I don't get this fascination with "The Royal Family." This is a bloodline of awful human beings. Why the hell are you shocked they would be assholes to an American woman of color who married into their incest is best, whites only family. 

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU CARE!?! Seriously America, why do so many of you fucktards care about this awful fucking family that has brought nothing good to this world?

Ten years ago I put this video clip into a blog right before a "Royal Wedding," because Americans, especially the media were getting all wet over the event. Here we are ten years later, nothing has changed apparently, and the clip still holds up.

The lovely and talented singer/songwriter, Lorde famously sang, "we'll never be Royals!"  

And we shouldn't want to be!

Bruce Springsteen Fools America

 Bruce Springsteen, Rock & Roll icon and foolishly, a hero for the Blue Collar-Working Class. Democrats love to prop him up as one of theirs and how he speaks for the little guy. Republicans have tried to latch onto his music and themes to try and co-opt that "we support the blue collar Americans" bullshit. But the fact is, all he has ever known of hard working, blue collar Americans he either read about or was told, and then he turned it into his storytelling lyrics. He grew up middle class, his mother worked at law firm, his dad was a bus driver, he had a Grandfather that was lawyer. He didn't spend years working in steel mills or building cars on an assembly line or digging in coal mines. 

So let's just begin this all with he played everyone. He's not Johnny Blue Collar. He's a millionaire that writes stories about Johnny Blue Collar. Then we have his nickname, "The Boss." So he goes by "the Boss" but average Americans bought into the myth that he's one of us and speaks for us. Last I checked, the vast majority of us blue collar folks hate our boss, because while the average working class Joe or Jane bust their ass just to scrape by, the boss coasts by and gets nice bonuses based of Joe and Jane's hard work. Seriously America, this guy played the whole damn country.

Then we get into some of his lyrics. No I'm not talking about "Born In the USA." I'm talking about some classics the ladies all seem to love, but he doesn't write the ladies in a very nice light. 

From Secret Garden:

 "She'll let you in her house
If you come knockin' late at night
She'll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She'll let you deep inside"

But that was in "Jerry MaQuire" so it was so sweet right?

Let's get into the classic, "Thunder Road" here are some of his not so loving, but 'I want to fuck you' words to Mary.

Early on we get: 
"Don't run back inside
Darling, you know just what I'm here for"

Leading us to :
"Show a little faith there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me"

Progressing to;
"We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back
Heaven's waiting down on the tracks"

And then:
"From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride ain't free
And I know you're lonely"

In "Born to Run" run he's talking to Wendy with a bunch of car metaphors:
"Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend
I wanna guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
And strap your hands 'cross my engines"

Then we have the songs, "The River," "Candy's Room" and "Tunnel of Love" where all three titles are used as vaginal metaphors, made plenty clear by the stories these songs tell.

Then we have the hit song "Fire" that many women call sexy and back in the day was always on "Sexist Song" lists. But you read the lyrics and it doesn't seem sexy. Seems kind of date rapey.
"I'm driving in my car
I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close
You just say no
You say you don't like it
But girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss
Ooooh, Fire

Late at night
I'm takin' you home
I say I wanna stay
You say you wanna be alone
You say you don't love me
Girl you can't hide your desire
'Cause when we kiss
Oh, Fire

You had a hold on me
Right from the start
A grip so tight
I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumpin'
Actin' like a fool
Well your kisses they burn
But your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah
Baby you can bet
Their love they didn't deny
Your words say split
But your words they lie
'Cause when we kiss
Mmmmmm, Fire

Burnin in my soul
It's outta control"

The last example I'll give is "Red Headed Woman." It was written in the early 90's about his second wife. So while the lyrics seem like they were written by a high school sophomore, they were written by a 40 year old male songwriter, who clearly could never get out of his high school boy view of women.

"Well brunettes are fine man
And blondes are fun
But when it comes to getting the dirty job done

I'll take a red headed woman
A red headed woman
It takes a red headed woman
To get a dirty job done

Well listen up stud
Your life's been wasted
'Til you've got down on your knees and tasted

A red headed woman
A red headed woman
It takes a red headed woman
To get a dirty job done

Tight skirt, strawberry hair
Tell me what you've got baby, waiting under there
Big green eyes that look like, son
They can see every cheap thing that you ever done

Well I don't care how many girls you've dated, man
But you ain't lived 'til you've had your tires rotated

By a red headed woman
A red headed woman
It takes a red headed woman
To get a dirty job done"
Listen, I'm not here to say we should cancel Bruce Springsteen...I don't speak for everyone, I speak for myself. I cancelled him from my musical preferences years ago, because I saw the bullshit, con-man he was. I often joked about the "You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright" line because its gotta be in the top 5 shittiest ways to tell someone you want to fuck them. But I find it odd how females pick and choose who they will tolerate what from, and Springsteen is one of those that baffles me. Dude is a fake and a scumbag.

Sorry Ladies, It's your Fault!

 Yes, this is last weeks news, but the fact of the matter is, it hasn't been said properly yet. After a New York Times documentary on Britney Spears, of all the problems in this world, they felt that shit was necessary, Justin Timberlake felt the need, or pressure to apologize to her and Janet Jackson. WTF!?!

Yeah, Britney cheated on him, but he felt pressure to apologize 20 years later because in stupid radio interviews he admitted to fucking his then girlfriend Britney. 

  1. We all knew it before it was asked but whatever "shock-jock" at the time.
  2. What young guy doesn't admit to who he fucked, especially if the person he was banging was hot or famous or both?
  3. Have you pearl clutching dolts ever listened to any of the lyrics in her songs?

"You know that I can take it to the next level, baby/Hotter than the A-list, next one on my hit list/Baby, let me blow your mind tonight" 

"The center of attention/Even when we're up against the wall/You got me in a crazy position/If you're on a mission, you got my permission" 

"I got that boom boom/That you want/I don't think you should wait/One minute might be too late" 

"There's only two types of guys out there/Ones that can hang with me and ones that are scared/So baby I hope that you came prepared/I run a tight ship, so beware"

"Interesting sense of style/Ten million dollar smile/Think I can’t handle that/Animal in the sack"

Baby, don't you wanna, dance upon me/(Are you ready?)/Leaving behind my name and age."

 "I'm into phonography/And I like my blue tooth, buttons coming loose/I need my hands free/Then I let my mind roam/Playing with my ringtone/He got service, I've got service"

 "I-I-I wanna go-o-o all the way-ay-ay taking out my freak tonight/I-I-I wanna show-o-o all the dir-ir-irt/I got running through my mind..."

"I'm not ashamed of my beauty, you can see what I got/Shouldn't I freak you out?/Imagine if I work it out/If I got on top, you're going to lose your mind/The way I put it down on you, you know should be up"

"Oh, it's so hot, and I need some air/And boy, don't stop cause I'm halfway there"

She was an openly, sexual, 'look at me, I like to fuck' person right from the jump with "Hit me baby one more time!"

So this whole Justin Timberlake told people he fucked Britney ruined her life and reputation is bullshit and nonsense! 

As for him apologizing to Janet Jackson, again I say what the fuck!?! Go back and watch that "Super Bowl" performance. The whole thing was sexual tension and flirty and teasing. 

When he ripped off easily removable piece on her one breast exposing the world to a pasty, she wasn't appalled by what he did. 

The much older woman was in on it and looked like she wanted to get backstage and get back to making this face with him.

After the so-called "wardrobe malfunction" Justin's career continued to skyrocket. Both he and Jackson were going to individually be performing at the Grammy's. They told her to stay away, but he was still invited. Her label distanced itself from her and her career has a lull. 

The media in 2021 is trying to frame it as these two moments in Justin Timberlake's career boosted his career but killed Janet and Britney's. They're try to ignore any and all success both women had after. But even if they had none, the media, social media and any and all of you out there are blaming Justin Timberlake, are blaming the wrong people. Yeah, fuck the Grammy's they did Janet dirty. 

But who is really to blame? FEMALES! Yes, women and girls. What was Justin Timberlake's biggest audience? The very same target audience Britney had and a good chunk of the same audience Janet had. Teenage girls and young women. 

No straight guy went to a JT show unless he was going with his girlfriend...And no straight guy was going to a Britney show unless he was with his girlfriend. Janet draws from a wider audience but there is a portion that is the same demographic as JT and Britney. It wasn't JT that hurt there careers, the females turned their backs on them. 

Why didn't they raise their voices when the Grammy's screwed Janet over. They should have been buying her music, merch and tickets in record numbers to show her label to have her back. 

Britney wasn't acting crazy because JT said what we all knew. She kept releasing the same old, 'I'm hot, you want to fuck me songs.' Her act got tired and the girls moved on. 

JT put out better music (honestly not a fan of his crap, not my taste, just know it sounds better) that wasn't like her auto-tuned crap. Dude also can play some instruments, he's funny and is a pretty good actor. 

Females turned their backs on Janet and Britney and now 20 years later they feel guilty and need a scapegoat. Justin, you should have told everyone to fuck off! you got nothing to apologize for.

COVID, The Walking Dead and Us


I hate the TV show, The Walking Dead. I think it's stupid, stupid and annoying, simple minded and crap! My wife and oldest daughter are big fans and put up with me mocking it. I don't know the full deal of the show. while they're watching it, I find something else to do, even if it's just sitting their and shitting on people on Twitter. But I have caught enough in the background and having watched some, that I feel strong about my opinion. But I also see that this show gave us a warning, that we are clearly ignoring.

The zombies were caused by something. These fucking zombies represent something like a Pandemic. But what has been the number one enemy to all of the characters in this show? It was not the pandemic/zombies. It's their fellow humans...and to be technical, their fellow Americans. Throughout the show Americans are killing Americans, stealing from Americans, double crossing, trapping, raping, murdering fellow Americans, instead of uniting and working together to not only wipe the Zombies, but figure out what caused this and try to fix it. 

If you look at how Americans have behaved during COVID, you can see many are willing to go down that path. It started with people denying COVID was real, fueled even more by political leaders on the right who called it a "liberal hoax" as tool to "control us." We had a President, Trump who was on tape saying he knew how bad and deadly it was, but admitted he wanted and did downplay it. Even after the tapes came out he continued to downplay COVID and rally up his cult that it wasn't that bad and liberals just used it to attack him.

How bad wasn't/isn't it? 525,000 Americans dead and counting, that's how bad. And who has been the biggest enemy during COVID? Our fellow Americans. Starting from Trump, to members of Congress, to governors, state legislatures, mayors, to every day regular people who scream and cry about wearing masks. Who call wearing masks an infringement of their rights. 

 So many of these same people are willing to strip other Americans of abortion rights, voting rights and civil rights, but wearing a mask for the health and safety of all is just a bridge too far for them. There are Republican members of congress screaming for the need for schools to be open, but every singles Republican member of the House and the Senate voted against a COVID Relief bill that will give money to schools to help them better prepare to reopen safely...That will help push vaccinations out faster, including getting teachers and school staff vaccinated. These same people are screaming for small businesses to be able to reopen, but again, that bill they voted against included money to help small businesses keep their heads above water.

Americans claim to be tough and can beat anything. They love The Walking Dead, because it shows their definition of tough. Shooting, stabbing, fighting, killing, not realizing far too often they are fighting and killing each other instead of the pandemic. With our real life pandemic, the only toughness needed is patience, caring, respect for our fellow humans, wearing a mask and a bit of social distancing.

But every day there's another video of a selfish cunt that thinks they're being a tough American, screaming how they won't wear a mask. You're not tough! You're the weakest form of life.

This week, a number of states (with Republican Governors) started lifting mask mandates, and opening places to allow full capacity. We are a few months away from having a large portion of the population vaccinated and these dolts can't have just a bit of patience. President Biden called them out, saying they were using "Neanderthal thinking." Of course a bunch of Republicans have tried to turn this into their latest battle cry. They're now pro-Neanderthal. There's nothing like a sitting Senator, (Marsha Blackburn) singing the praises of the Neanderthals. I guess her and her fellow idiots missed that day in junior high when the teacher discussed that the Neanderthals went extinct 40,000 years ago!

I don't know how The stupid Walking Dead is going to end, but I do know if we keep electing ignorant, lying Republicans, we're going to go the way of the Neanderthals.
