Rocky Raccoon

the doctor came in stinking of gin

an Easter parable




Rocky Raccoon was murdered, his body buried in a shallow grave by the highway...his rival killed him...Rocky kept telling people "the way things are going, they're gonna crucify me" and it looks like they did..

if you happen upon Gideon's bible this Easter, say a prayer for Rocky Raccoon

Didn't It Rain

Didn't it rain, children Talk 'bout rain ... didn't it oh my Lord Didn't it rain?
 



I look out my window for rain and see a blonde chick hanging out in the bushes..I can't help it if I'm lucky...and as I told you the drought is over..others said the drought was not over from the news folks to the county water guy but you should listen to me because I was right for once

ok fine ...then I'm checking out something on youtube and come across Sister Rosetta Tharpe and she's my favorite singer/guitar player now.. I mean, before Aretha, Chuck Berry and all the greats who were influenced by her, Sister Rosetta was slinging that Gibson guitar like a short-order cook slings hash during the breakfast rush...she's fast, furious, soulful and this tape is from England in a train station...in 1964

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR2gR6SZC2M


In 2001, the French film Amélie included a scene showing the protagonist's house-bound neighbor mesmerized by a montage of video clips that featured a performance of "Up Above My Head" by Tharpe.


damn straight it rained

Wasted On The Way

so much water moving underneath the bridge

what bridge Graham? ok so I missed Graham Nash at the Lobero although I had a ticket..but since he did an interview with Wendy's ghastly News-Press, I boycotted the event and I probably over-reacted. I mean does Graham know or care about the News-Press as he lives in New York and probably jets to England bnow and again..so yeah, I should have gone because not everything revolves around me and Wendy you know...


but I must say that the reason CSN didn't get on the Beatle's Apple record label is because of George...George didn't like the Hollies version of "If I Needed Someone" which George wrote...it's a brilliant song and the Hollies didn't do a good job on their version but CSN thrived anyway thanks to Martin acoustic guitars and some gorgeous songs and vocals

So Trump removed Breitbart's Steve Bannon from the National Security Council thank GOD..that dude looks like he drinks a fifth of Bourbon each morning for breakfast..then Trump starts bombing Syria for the gassing of children...Trump has ZERO knowledge who was behind the gassing, but bombs away anyway....it's Syria's civil war but an allied full bodied full metal jacket approach is needed to end it..that means millions of troops on the ground..these pissy air strikes won't do anything except stroke Trump's ego


 
actress Linda Evans was pulled over for DUI and she was on prescription drugs but the photo of her was pretty sad..back in the day she was pretty as can be..a real cool cowgirl who starred in the Big Valley and I think she lives in the big valley Santa Ynez...I wish her the best

I'm gonna miss Brian Wilson at the SB Bowl because I saw him at the Lobero around 2009 before the Lobero remodel..it was such a great show and an honor to watch the pop genius with his outstanding band and horn section do all that epic music...

Brian was in such good form and the Lobero crowd had a blast....I just can't have anything interfere with that memory..

and memories are all I got

Good Times

these are such good times...

life is complicated enough with Trump's kids running the White House, now I gotta deal with rightwingnut Ann Coulter goin' black...she digs scary looking old black dudes!!

A white supremacist group has decided to rescind an award to Ann Coulter after discovering she might have a thing for black men. Coulter, who makes her living selling books to old, racist white men, has long been rumored to have a predilection for black men...


seen way too smiley with black man Jimmie Walker from the old 'Good Times' sitcom, white folks everywhere, esp at FOX NEWS, are scratching their heads and wondering what happened..

I too am confused as I thought Ann was a God-fearing Christian gal who hated gays, blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and soccer and to see her with an old black guy distresses me...I can't imagine her giving ol' Jimmie a blow job...geez!!


The National White Alliance (NWA) has decided to disinvite Coulter from their annual conference, after discovering pictures of her arm-in-arm with comedian Jimmie Walker.

An email leaked to The Business Standard News found National White Alliance leader Will Cowan saying he could never look at Coulter again after discovering she was "unclean." Coulter had been set to receive the NWA’s Eva Braun award for her new book, "Adios, America." In the book, Coulter blames immigrants from Latin America and Africa for dragging America down, saying we should take in more immigrants from Europe.

Coulter fans on Stormfront were furious about the discovery.

"I can’t believe she would do something like this," said Post Fred57. "She has ruined herself."

"F**k that skinny bitch," said SouthernKnight. "I’m burning all of her books. I can’t believe I put money in her pocket."


Diff'rent Strokes, I guess

Everybody Is A Star

Who would rain and chase the dust away
Everybody wants to shine
Who'll come out on a cloudy day


now we got some stars around here and some of them are selling their houses and properties..we got Ellen and Portia and Jeff Bridges..and Dennis Miller sold his beach house for 20 mill or so..Dennis tours with sex pervert Bill O'Reilly from FOX NEWS and people flock to them for some reason....Dennis and Bill are lucky to have Rupurt Murdoch as their sugar daddy and Ruppie shelled out over 13 million to settle sex harassment claims against O'Reilly..God I hope this idiot doesn't buy a house on Padaro



but now I see Kevin Costner's Padaro retreat by Loon Park is for sale at..what? 60 million!! supposedly he got it for 20 million and still has a house on Beach Club Road a few blocks down the road where he was embroiled in hedge controversy a few years ago..hope they resolved that...now Jeff lives high up on Hot Springs Rd where Kenny Loggins once lived...



I pass Kevin's place alot and stop in for a game of hoops now and then...love his films..and the property is gorgeous..right on the bluffs, plenty of trees and open space but alot of debris, old tractors and a few modular houses and out-buildings so I don't think Kevin knows what to do there..except sell it and move on...but 60 million is kind of I wanna sell but not really price tag...actually, I like it the way it is...real simple and casual..Padaro Lane has always been cool..big pines and eucalyptus and fire places burning after rains...

I could have been a star and made tons of money and bought expensive properties where I never live because I'm too busy making money and being a STAR...

 
but my real concern is getting rid of there dumb security cameras on Padaro Lane which I think were put up by the celebrities..but it's a public road not a private road so they have no right to be so paranoid on public property...they can hide behind their big walls

I loved the old beach houses along Padaro that have been demolished for the designer mansions..some of the beach houses remain but the price of property here is getting absurd so I'll probably see more castles and Italian villas that people, rich people, buy but don't live in..

I guess it gets to the point that you have soooo much money, you don't know what to do so you put up security cameras in case someone who knows what they want to do robs you!!

if you're a star

Beautiful World

My, my, my it's a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea




if you take a bike ride from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria, you will see some lovely sights...there's plenty of room for healthy recreation....miles of roads for your bike, miles of sandy beaches with inviting surf, parks and play areas....look up to the hills and mountains and the hiker in you will smile...look at the marsh and maybe see red-shoulder hawk....and we got all year to enjoy this bounty of nature...

so I don't know why some aging hippie-socialists are so Hell-bent on closing a main thoroughfare in Carpinteria to promote healthy living..is it the anti-car anti-oil folks? I was going to get some things in Carp but Linden was closed and a few people were walking around and a bunch of people were kinda riding bikes...but businesses lost money and I didn't see more than 50 people...and the cops were there and the road block signs were there and I am paying for it with TAX DOLLARS!!

closing Linden Ave for 8 hrs will not make you healthy but it may promote an agenda for a specific group...therefore it's a political event sponsored by SBCAG
What is SBCAG?
The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments is a regional planning agency comprised of Santa Barbara County and all eight incorporated cities within the county. SBCAG distributes local, state, and federal transportation funds and acts as a forum for addressing regional and multi-jurisdictional issues.

SBCAG should not be spending my tax money for this open streets nonsense


 
what they should do on Saturday is go for a hike in the hills, a bike ride through Summerland, a swim in the ocean or play some soccer at a park..

but stay the fuck out of Carpinteria!!

Immigration Man

won't you let me in

now as I said before, any city in the good ol' USA with a church is a sanctuary city..and the churches are stepping up and providing sanctuary for immigrants and all these Christians barking about illegals and preaching brotherly love- if your brother is not a Mexican- are up in arms and they don't know what hit them because the feds won't go into the church to arrest a Mex



oh all these faux-Christian rightwingers and their fear of Mexicans makes me laugh...esp FOX (FAUX) News and the News-Press, two cases in point...you'll recall when Wendy and Nipper put some Mexican folks on the front page and called them illegals because they were at the DMV...this was obvious racism and stereotyping by the yellow journal..and they held an anti-Mexican rally in front of the News-Press with crazy pro-NEWS-PRESS folks showing up..even Julia, #69, the old lady from Animal Rescue called Mexicans "invasive species" ...what a dumb bitch she is..just like Wendy..RACISTS!!!

but Nipper and Wendy sided with the vigilante border patrol Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist...Gilchrist founded the Mintuemen with help from Chris Simcox, a now convicted child molestor and Shawna Forde a convicted child killer-she killed 9-year old BRISENIA FLORES..a beautiful young girl may she rest in peace..


 
now, I see that Graham Nash did an interview with the News-Press for his upcoming show at the Lobero..I got tickets but am boycotting the show....geez Graham, don't you know the News-Press history? 'ow could you grant them an interview, mate? do you support Wendy's anti-worker obsession? do you support child sexual abuse and murder?

it looks like Graham Nash is more interested in publicity than taking a stand against an obvious and vile wrong like Wendy and the News-Press

and one thing I can't stand Graham is a hypocrite!

Where Have All The Flowers Gone

long time passing


so the Botanic Garden in Santa Barbara has turned into a Beer and Dog Show...the only way people can enjoy the Mission Canyon area is to be drunk while stepping in dogshit I guess...all these side shows are not what the Gardens are suppposed to be about...it's not a freaking country club!! and you may have noticed Santa Barbara has a drinking problem and a DUI problem..all lost on these idiots who push this event.. Steve Windhager is the bald Botanic Garden manager whose main concern is holding onto his job by indulging the boozers... a really stupid idea given the twisty roads in Mission Canyon




 I don't drink beer because it makes me tired and red-eyed...beer eyes....I am way too vain to allow alcohol to mess up my good looks .....but I had an idea for a Budweiser commercial and slogan: I go into this bar and see a group of hipsters sitting at a table discussing the craft beer they're drinking..the caramel citrus infusions and delightful nose or some such nonsense..then the bartender comes up to me and asks.."what'll it be?" and I say "just gimme a Bud" he smiles and says "coming right up!"

see? that's the commercial and the hook is "just gimme a Bud" which cuts through all the designer beer nonsense...craft beer is marketed to be diffferent than mass produced beer but it's all the same...so I thought my commercial idea was pretty good and if Budweiser uses it they better pay me!

now over at the Sentinel, the rightwing bratty booze rag run by Mont Journal people, they have a Jew Beer Guy named Zak who claims to be a cicerone...or beer expert but in reality there is no such thing...it's like having a degree from Trump University...

dumb and dumber

according to Popular Mechanics which is read by real men like me, the Cicerone Certification Program was started in 2008 and offers anyone with tuition money and a bottle opener any title they want, from beer server to master cicerone..

so while you can add anything to the beer making process, do we really need some phony jerk telling us how to drink beer? drinking beer for many people is a simple pleasure...let's keep it that way

besides, we already have cicerones..they are called bartenders!

Fly Like An Eagle

I wanna fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me




well there are too many dogs now..they're everywhere like cockroaches in the ghetto...we got three-legged pit bulls attacking little dogs at the Mission...and they keep breeding these mutts and people keep buying them...or they end up in Animal Services that Wendy McCuckoo supports with her endless supply of ill-gotten divorce money and some nut adopts the dog and kills it..



then the nonprofit Animal Rescue ladies chime in and the cycle is repeated...

it's stupid and embarrassing that these people have infected Santa Barbara

I BLAME WENDY FOR CREATING THIS SUB-CULTURE OF PETULANT DOG PEOPLE!!

Memphis, Tennessee

Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5ezeUM6c74
 
 
help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
'Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee
 
Last time I saw Marie she's waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye

Marie is only six years old, information please

Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee

Infinity

this is where we've always been
it will always come again


I got tickets to see Rickie Lee Jones months ago and looked forward to her appearance Friday March 17 at the Arlington Theatre...even though my truck's tranny went all transgender on me, I rented a Toyota Avalon which runs circles around the truck..bitchin car!! so Friday night I was styling into Santa Barbara to see Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux....



 

got there early to check out the street life and I like this area..used to live here...watched girls walk around...passed a little cafe with sidewalk seats and one guy was yelling at some lady not to take pictures of his dog..the lady told him she wasn't taking pictures of the dog...I don't know who is more neurotic..the designer dogs in this town or their owners...geez how silly can they be?? give the dog a modeling fee then take his pic!!

so the Arlington doors open at 7:00 PM and I rush in and get some popcorn which set me back six bucks!! worth every penny as sit in this beautiful old theatre with comfy seats unlike the Lobero...

Madeleine Peyroux opened the show with her guitar player and stand-up bass player..they were good...volume was real low though and wish they would've busted loose... Madeline was funny and had some really good songs..."Lady Of Pigalle" was brilliant...no cameras allowed so I had to shoot fast and on the run

but I wanted to see Rickie Lee...after a short break, Rickie Lee came onstage to a very adoring crowd..I'd heard stories that her concerts were unpredictable and she would storm off stage at the drop of a hat but nothing even remotely close to that happened..instead we all witnessed Rickie Lee Jones in her finest form...a stellar guitar player and percussionist joined her..and Rickie Lee is a very good guitarist and mind-boggling piano player...and her voice was perfectly beaautiful, reaching those chilling high notes with such ease and passion...

I was entralled as she played beauty after beauty on her acoustic guitar...she was laughing and joking with the audience..she dumped an electric guitar that wouldn't stay in tune and took the mic for some soulful jazz....


 

then she sits down at the piano and plays a song called 'Infinity' ..it was absolutely gorgeous and had me holding back some salty tears...the interplay with her percussionist was epic!!

Jesus Christ, this woman is a genius and I was so happy to be there in that theatre watching her in such good form and health...she rocked the house and she rocked me..

Rickie Lee Jones rocked me, that's for sure

Sundown

you better take care, if I find you been creeping 'round my back stairs



the sunsets and sunrises have been pretty spectacular but then I started thinking one evening...I was sitting outside and watched as jet after jet zigzagged across the sky leaving contrails the likes of which I've never witnessed





this was around sundown and I've heard that the gov't will add poison (chemtrails) to the jets and spray the population to kill off the weak..and the strong who pose a threat..that's what I think Trump is doing


Trump thinks Obama is not an American citizen and he thinks Obama wiretapped Trump Towers...

well, I think President Trump is trying to kill me

A Day In The Life

I'd love to turn you on....

today is "A Day Without A Woman"....so that leaves me with only weird men walking their weird little  dogs and that just won't do...




then I remembered the Ringo concert at the SB Bowl a few years back and there were many women here, there and everywhere..stone cold beautiful women... and we all sang along to some cool old Beatles tunes...



♪ ♫ I get high with a little help from my friends ♪ ♫

the Beatles had a lot of songs and the best ones were inspired by a woman

but there's one woman I can do without and that's Wendy McCucko...Wendy owns and is co-publisher of the News-Press with her dimwitted boyfriend Nipper, who is also listed as co-publisher..Nipper hired Dr. Laura to write her nutty column years ago, but when I exposed her as the fraud she is, she quit...

I read the news today oh boy and saw that Dr. Laura won a yacht race in Santa Barbara...she was busted and disciplined for cheating before...here's some web stuff on the old bitch and I bet the judges will find she cheated on the latest race, at the Yacht Club in Santa Barbara!

http://www.travelbanter.com/showthread.php?t=150617

so you got two co-publishers at the News-Press but no publisher???

a federal court just found Wendy guilty of breaking labor laws...she will appeal with her divorce money still funding her paranoia, but she will lose again and the reporters who worked under her mismangament will get some measure of satisfaction

now that's a turn-on!!

Saturday, March 4, 2017

Sugar, Sugar

ah, honey honey




now Andy Caldwell I think would be back at the sugar plantation if it wasn't for rich folk like Wendy employing him..or maybe he could've worked for Brietbart, the crazy rightwing media outlet that now claims Obama wiretapped the Trump Towers during the election!! and Trump believes it!! he also believed Obama was not an American citizen..CRAZY SHIRTS!!!

is Andy a pedo???

I find it curious that the News-Press/Andy Caldwell would defend disgraced former Brietbart editor Milo Yannonopilous, the gay guy who thinks it's ok for men to have sex with 13 year old boys...ok the News-Press did have thousands of child porn images on a company computer, and this is stuff that demands investigations..are Wendy Nipper and Andy pedophiles??

Andy who got a radio gig with Wendy's News-Press Radio, AM-1290, says he interviewed Milo and found him 'brilliant'....



but the tape of Milo talking about pedophilia was clear-cut and not at all brilliant

Milo: "Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13-years-old who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet. Who have not gone through puberty. Who are too young to be able (unclear and cut off by others)…That’s not what we are talking about. You don’t understand what pedophilia is if you are saying I’m defending it because I’m certainly not."

In a recently resurfaced episode of "The Drunken Peasants" podcast, the alt-right provocateur recalled his own sexual abuse as a teen and did not condemn similar relationships between children and men.

Yiannopoulos, in fact, said young boys "discover who they are" through such relationships, even when they're sexual in nature, and can "give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable rock where they can't speak to their parents."

"I'm grateful for Father Michael," Yiannopoulos replied. "I wouldn't give nearly such good head if it wasn't for him."

so does this sound like guy who is "brilliant" or just another pervert?? and of course, Caldwell, who is a Christian..actually a faux-Christian, didn't include any of the real quotes from the Milo tape!!

Andy then tries to blame the liberals for Milo's downfall..but the liberals were right on...sound instincts about Milo, the perv

anything you read or hear from Brietbart is born of paranoia, bias and ignornance..

Obama wire-tapping the Trump Tower...geez

I am still waiting for JUSTIVE on the News-Press child porn issue!!!

Sinnerman

Oh sinnerman, where you gonna run to?

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent for Catholics..we fast, we turn away from sin and that means molesting children which is very uncool!! so I guess Wendy fancies herself a bible thumping Christian now that she employs Brother preacher Caldwell and Christian Don Katich...and still I wait for JUSTICE for the thousands of child porn images on Wendy's compant computer!!!

will new Atty General Jeff Sessions resign for lying?? LYING IS A SIN!!!




Oh sinnerman, where you gonna run to?
Sinnerman, where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
All along dem day
Well I run to the rock, please hide me
I run to the rock, please hide me
I run to the rock, please hide me, lord
All along dem day
But the rock cried out, I can't hide you
The rock cried out, I can't hide you
The rock cried out, I ain't gonna hide you guy
All along dem day
I said, rock, what's a matter with you rock?
Don't you see I need you, rock?
Lord, lord, lord


All along dem day

All The Young Dudes

Carry the news, Bugaloo dudes

 

I've been watching the Young Miss America Foundation/ Wendy McCuckoo luncheons for awhile now and they always bring in some rightwing extremist to preach to the choir...last week Oliver North (ARMS FOR HOSTAGES) and mostly they have FOX NEWS hosts come in...when she was on FOX, Gretchen Carlson spoke at the luncheon but didn't mention the sexual harrassment issues at the station





Wendy likes the guys at Breitbart...Andy Breitbart is dead of course after the luncheon at Montecito Country Club six years ago, he dropped dead while walking his dog...but filling the void were guys like Steve Bannon, Ben Shapiro and Milos Yanninpolous...these fellows are pure whack jobs and you need only listen to them to see it's true...the problem with these guys is they'll say anything to push the rightwing agenda which is basically less gov't and more religion adn don't forget THE MUSLIMS ARE TRYING TO ENFORCE SHARIA LAW IN AMERICA...but they are buffoons kept in the spotlight by the likes of Wendy and Rupert Murdoch..

Priscilla tried to ban me from taking a pic at the Breitbart luncheon!!

now this Milo character was praised by General Micheal Flynn, Trump's pick for National Security Advisor, who eventually resigned after a tough month in office...
web: A man who lead the charge in online trolling against women and people of color was praised on Tuesday by Retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, President-Elect Donald Trump's pick for national security advisor.

Flynn called Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos—a leading voice in the anti-feminism Gamergate and white nationalist alt-right online movements—a "phenomenal individual" at a conference for young conservatives held at Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C.


then a video was found of Milos..obviously, the guy is mentally ill, but he speaks of his fondness for pedophiles...he approves of sex between men and boys which I guess makes him a good Catholic..maybe Flynn had a crush on Milos

of course Milos had to resign his position at Brietbart, the online conservative fake news outlet...Steve Bannon of Breitart works for Trump as a top advisor..Trump is poor judge of character!!

so the Young Miss America Foundation has been sponsoring the talks by these Breitbart brats on college campuses and some colleges are not allowing them to speak...what college would allow the KKK to speak? I mean how stupid do you have to be to sit there and listen to some paranoid dumbshit white guy spread fear about other cultures??

the college has every right not to allow certain groups to speak so this is not a free speech issue...

it's free will issue...

I'll Meet You Halfway

that's better than no way


 

now I watched the David Cassidy video on youtube..he was playing a few nights ago at the Canyon Club in Agoura...a dinner show I guess...he was singing "I'll Meet You Halfway" which is a really nice song...David says Gerry Goffin wrote it for him...of course Goffin and Carole King wrote some pop standards over the years...now the youtube video was pretty strange with David in the throes of dementia, alcoholism with a few DUIs and arthritis at 66 years old...but with a weakened voice and body tics, still managed to pull off the song...

David Cassidy became a teen idol on the Partridge Family...Shirley Jones was the mom and her performance in "Elmer Gantry" with Burt Lancaster won her an Oscar back when it meant something..David's father Jack Cassidy was an actor and so good in the "Eiger Sanction"..so Dave is not without talent....and when he had his act together, he was very good as this video tells

http://search.aol.com/aol/video?q=david+cassidy+meet+you+half+way&s_it=video-ans&sfVid=true&videoId=70D2CC157513129B30E870D2CC157513129B30E8&v_t=keyword_rollover


lots of acts from the 60s and 70s are still performing although time is catching up with them...I think if they want to perform, and performing is an art, then I'll go see them no matter where their heads are at...remember, they are up on that stage for a reason and I think David Cassidy has alot of guts to perform these farewell concerts...

so where is music today? I was surfing youtube and came across a young band doing "Helplessly Hoping"..it was beautiful..the band is Paige Anderson and the Fearless Kin..then I see them do a song Paige wrote called "Wild Rabbit" and I'm floored...this girl can pick the guitar, sing and write songs like she's 150 years old..and her sisters and brother are ace musicians...



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yO3De1VBnGQ

I need to hear more of this...if you're gonna be a musician, an artist and you stand up before millions of people and pour your heart and soul out

you gotta be fearless

Hesitation Blues

I woke up this morning just 'bout half past four Hesitation blues was knocking on my door


 
ok so we are getting lots of glorious surf and  rain and Spring should be blooming like never before...every dormant flower whether native or non-native will grow and bless the hillsides with color and love..but now that the rains have come and Cachuma is filling, what about the desal plant which the city of SB keeps throwing money at? back in the 1980s the people voted for desal and state water so the City of SB was stuck with the will of the people...very expensive proposition...but they should keep it and maintain it for future droughts and not part it out again

when things get tough in Washington DC, President Trump flies off to Florida to do one of his info-mercials..he calls it a rally but it's a staged event where he tries to sell his agenda AGAIN to the American people..the event is stacked with supporters...he's only been president since January!!



I saw Salud Carbajal at the Albertson's in Carp..apparently fed up with politics he's looking for a job as a union meat-cutter



President Donald Trump's assessment of the media as "the enemy of the American people," is cuckoo...Donald has has too many yesman and women around him and he can't deal with criticism (like Wendy) and especially he can't deal with a free press....FREEDOM OF THE PRESS is guaranteed in the Constitution so he won't have any luck trying to out-talk the reporters or shut them down like Wendy tried...they will continue to do their jobs...

and when Donald says FOX NEWS morning show is the only credible media outlet remaining, then you know he's not only a narcissist but he's delusional too..keeps crowing about 'fake news' but fabricates events to support his MUSLIM ban... I think Pence and the Donald should change places..

so I see that a Kyle Eastwood bought house in Montecito for about 2 million...Kyle is Clint's kid and a jazz musician...house is over where I used to hang out with friends as a kid...garage bands and Suzuki trail bikes....it's a cool area and close to the legendary Mountain Drive!!!

I had a dream last night about a teller at the bank..she wanted to have sex with me and you know what I told her?

go ahead..make my day!!

Rain

when the rain comes, they run and hide their heads, they might as well be dead

 

right John!! I went out and plowed through the rivers in the roads...the sea was choppy and multi-colored..the Polo fields were flooded...the creeks were rock and rollin'

 

the cattle were chillin'


and the rain just kept pouring down!!

FYI: THE DROUGHT IS OVER
