Moving on to things that do not matter:
So, I wake up to these images on the news feed. This happens to be Fox. Are you wondering why I look at Fox News? Well, I look at all of them, just so you don't think I am only reading the right news. No pun intended. I read both left and right. I am ambi-newsterous. Let me tell you, I think they are all Skewed News. There we are done.
But what alarmed me today is that it was Hillary, Hillary, Hillary. NO ONE CARES WHAT THIS WOMAN HAS TO SAY! SHE NEEDS TO GO LEAD A PRODUCTIVE LIFE...not in my newsfeed.
But interestingly enough, she is keeping the donation from Harry Weinstein. Why? Because she is greedy. I wish someone would give me big cash donations to spout off in public about nonsense. There is nothing you could say or do to convince me that that woman is worth any of my time and I am definitely relieved she is not president.
Now, another crazy thing in the news, this time on ABC is Kaepernick is filing a grievance against the NFL. Ok. He is unemployed. How can he file against the NFL? Can anyone do it? I want to file. I need some easy money.Well, for a minute it sounded like a good plan.
So he thinks he has a unfair treatment issue now. Maybe he hasn't been hired because he has an attitude problem and isn't that good. I mean, how many people are looking for second string players? He almost had a job, then he and his girlfriend created an issue. Well, yeah, you bad mouth me, I'm not going to hire you either. Don't bite the hand that feeds you. He severed his contract. Whoopsie. Sounded like a good idea at the time. I don't think anyone has seen a gap in quarterback service or plays without him. He probably thought he was irreplaceable.
Is he really being denied employment because of the kneeling controversy? I think there are other issues. But time will tell how this pans out. Court is a funny thing. People would rather settle than fight the good fight. Used to burn my ass all the time in police work.
In other news, Jesse James from Westside Choppers (the man only known now as the person who cheated on Sandra Bullock) is making firearms at an average of $25,000 a whack. Hurt me now. Oh, yeah, they are gorgeous. But I can't invest that kind of dough, so they are only for the rich. Here's one for $85,000:
Added to his newest undertaking is Jesse James ammunition. I wonder if he will engrave every bullet.
He is also selling honey called Satan's Nectar, part of his wholesome foods collection of Hell Awaits! And a clothing venture with the NRA in the lifestyle category including bar stools?
It's just a strange business portfolio, but I guess whatever floats your boat. I'm not sure if his new wife is the backer of these projects since she is an heiress, but she is no Sandra Bullock. Probably a nice lady, but caveat emptor: buyer beware. Jesse is a cheater and said, "everyone cheats." Hmm. Is that a theory or hypothesis?
Here is something that stumps me...local farmer's gun license taken away during home invasion self-defense case. Bizarro. Sometimes I wonder if things like this are fake news. But if you had a subscription to the Herald Sun, you could read all about it.
California continues to put itself at the top of Lunatic Land with its laws. Newest one is of course, you guessed it, a gun control measure. I don't know why things don't work in that state. Maybe because they have so many laws, no one knows if they are allowed to pick their nose with their left or right fingers.
My favorite Whataburger fired an employee for refusing to serve police officers. In fact, it created an uproar in Denison as the officer had little choice for 24 hour service and loved their Whataburger. The company plans to meet with each officer and apologize and "make it right", according to the news report.
And now a word from our sponsor.
Yep, you guessed it. *crickets* This is a joke. I have no sponsors. But my life is always in this mode...buffering, loading, etc.
Back to reality. Sigh. I have a lot of studying to do. I am hopeful that July 2018 will land me a good job somewhere. This better pay off. Otherwise, I'm just another almost professor with a low end job. Don't get me wrong. I am very, very grateful for my job because I have health insurance and the whole nine yards. But I'm 50 and never thought I would be making 1992 wages and starting my life over. I'm making the best of it. But, boss, I'm tired. Really, really tired.
Can you guess what movie line that was from and the actor? 50 golden stars to you if you do! And go...
