INDIAN GAMING OR INDIAN GAMBLING ??

January 17, 2008

I OBJECT to this sneaky word “gaming” used in Indian TV spots.

What is involved is GAMBLING  which can involve betting your life savings,

or your week’s pay, or your mortgage payment at the betting tables,  where the odds

are you can and probably will, LOSE that money.  Making your children go hungry,

get thrown out of your house, lose your car or medical payments,etc. The Indians

want us to see gambling as “gaming” as if it were not serious when it is extremely

serious. Gambling is not OK, and calling it “gaming” does not make it more OK.

The fact that “Indians” run the shows, does not make it more OK.  The fact that the state

make more of a cut from it  also does not make it OK.  Gambling and gaming  are equally

bad. BOTH should be banned.

TIGER KILLS TOTAL MORON IN SAN FRANCISCO

December 27, 2007

12/25/07

OPEN UP THE DARWIN AWARDS. On xmas day, three morons went to the zoo, and two apparently linked arms with the third, who stood between the fence and the actual edge of the tiger pit, and threw down pine cones and sticks to harass the tiger. The tiger, fully justified, leaped up and grabbed onto the third moron, and the other two pulled up both tiger and the third moron. The tiger then killed the teasing idiot, and scratched the other two, who retreated 300 yards it is said. However, the tiger followed the blood trail and was about to kill the other two morons, when police shot the tiger with their pistols. A total waste of a good tiger’s life.

The weeping parents were shown on tv . I weep for the tiger. There is a basic rule in zoos –

‘ DON’T MESS WITH TIGERS! ‘

Note: it is unclear which guy helped  the other(s) and which provoked the tiger.

But it was not the tiger’s fault, either way. She was doing what tigers do.

INTERNATIONAL NAME YOUR TEDDY MUHAMMED WEEK

December 1, 2007

In honor of the teacher in the Sudan who was sentenced to 15 days in jail

for letting her class name a teddy bear Muhammed , I hereby declare 

the week of Dec 1-7  to be INTERNATIONAL  NAME YOUR TEDDY MUHAMMED

WEEK. Buy a teddy bear, name it Muhammed and put it on your mantel, or rename

existing teddy bears with the new name.

 There is no evidence “Allah” exists,  nor that Muhammed was a prophet  of a real,

existing God.

 

You can also name your teddy Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, etc.  Any true God will not care.

TOM TANCREDO AND THE BOMBING OF MECCA IF WE GET ANOTHER 9/11

June 25, 2007

Tancredo, a presidential candidate, may never win his goal, but he does have a good idea to hold back  Islamic suitcase bombers. Let it be known we have missiles aimed at Mecca, and Medina, holy  sites for Islam, and these will be launched if we experience any second 9/11. Islamic insurgents and terrorists say it is Islam against the USA, not any specific Islamic country, so let us Tancredo’s idea to hold them  back.

To lose  Mecca and Medina are unthinkable for radical Islam. Let this be a consequence of what they might do. Let them know.

The TIP of the ICEBERG Rule

June 2, 2007

Here it  is:  

            Most of an iceberg is underwater. Common knowledge. Maybe 10% shows  above water.

In human society I find that if  several people complain or raise an issue,  say 10, that another 100

would like to, but do not know where to write or call, or else are too timid to speak out, but they do

agree. So if 100 speak out, 100,000 agree.  If 100,000, then 1,000,000   etc.

                                               If the train air is too hot, and ten say so, then another 100 or so, agree.

Parents who let kids raise hell in restraurants

May 18, 2007

Modern American parents have a horrible attitude that their kid can do anything they want in public, such as in restaurants and theatres,  “just because they’re only a kid”.

They let them go BANG,BANG,BANG!  on a plate or table with as spoon, kick racks under the table, cry, scream and yell,  because “He’s only a kid”.

First, they should not even bring the kid to a restaurant, at all, and if they do, they are obligated to shut the kid up and make him behave.

Adults control  their kid, or should do so,so as to not annoy other diners in the establishment who after all, came to eat in peace and quiet.

I was raised part of the time in Euope, and there, kids obey parents and are not

allowed to annoy other people.

Methods – if the parents will not follow your request to stop the kid, then tell the waiter there will be  a higher tip of he can stop the kid. (If he does not, give no tip).

Tell the owner you will not return if the kid is not stopped.

Or, pull out muting earphones you may have with you in a bag. Works VERY well on  airliners where then parent refuses to “take the kid outside”.  (Also works well on blocking cell-phone users.)

Before I discovered the muffs used by jet engine mechanics, I once passed a note to a father asking him to silence his kid. As he disembarked, he raged at me, saying he had a right to inflict his child on the rest of us in steerage, and said “What am I supposed to do?”   I answered – TAKE THE BUS !  (or ocean liner, as the case may be.)

To all, be bold, be firm, be polite, and demand the parent stop his noisy child.

What they do is NOT ok.
