Locusts, You Say? Well, Bring ‘Em On…

After all of these years of living in Southern California and dealing with the fires that are sweeping our area, it comes to mind that as residents of this land of milk and honeys (not to be confused with milk and honey), we’ve become numb to all of the plagues that over the years we have had to abide with, i.e.: fires, floods, career ending strikes, earthquakes, poverty, riots, foreclosures, you name it. Even an asshole governor who was elected because he’s a “name” but fucked up so big that there’s not much chance “He’ll be back”.

Chris Christie’s Limo Has A Sad?

Somehow, this one missed California

Yet any given day we can easily see that the results of our Chamber Of Commerce’s “Give me your tired, your poor,  your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” advertising campaign means that California continues to draw them in like cockroaches after a dropped piece of meat, those who keep looking for the streets they heard were paved with gold and jobs that will get them that home in Beverly Hills with an infinity pool and an ocean view.

Meanwhile, back here in the real world, we await the soon to arrive torrential rains of winter, which will bring on the mud slides of the recently burned out mountains, resulting in flooding of the flatlands, which will drive even more people out of their homes and into sleeping in their cars or under freeway bridges.

I’d like to go further with this, but there are issues of greater import, like was Bill O’Reilly actually born in Ireland? Can he prove he wasn’t?

Is Bill O’Really in possession of his own valid U.S. birth certificate? If so, why hasn’t he shown it yet? Why does William James “Bill” O’Reilly, Jr.  hate America so much?

You’ve got questions, I’ve got lots of time…….
