christmas_eve_by_mango84-d5hrhtrWell it’s Christmas Eve and with that comes looking back at the past year. I prefer doing it now to avoid the rush at New Years. As years go 2015 hasn’t been a great year it’s had it good and bad moments as I’m sure you’ll all agree. The good I published two more books and read 303 books. I learned how to carve wood and got pretty good at it. I remained reasonably healthy. My wife got to go to Disney World with our grandson and she too is healthy. The bad I lost my youngest niece Kim to a as yet unknown but natural death. This especially bad at this time of year because she loved Christmas like I do and she would always post pictures of her and the family decorating the tree. Her family is visiting her sister this year and that’s a good thing. As far as the rest of the world goes well not so good you get terrorists attacking everywhere and fear is the mood of the day. Politically speaking the US is a mess the republicans can’t seem to find a sane candidate and the Democrats have Hillary. Makes you want to throw up. Oh for those of you who don’t believe in Global warming it 74 degrees in New York today? Well Flounder and Jeff wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy and Safe New year.

Miss-Universe-2013I bet your all waiting to hear what I’m going to say about the Miss Universe contest held last night. Well first let me say I think there all a lot of Bull Shit and are corrupt and exploit the women who enter them. That being said I’m upset for the winner the young lady from the Philippines whose title will always be slightly cored by controversy. I don’t know if she was the prettiest or the brightest and I really don’t care since if my wife hadn’t watched and started screaming I probably wouldn’t have known who won. I don’t watch these things and don’t really care what country wins. But when you see an example of complete stupidity and incompetency at the end of a worldwide telecast and then blame the MC. You realize what I’ve said all along these shows are rigged and are just plain stupid. If you look at Miss America the girls move from one state to another if they think they have a better chance of winning a contest and getting into the Miss America one. I don’t think there’s a way for these contests to be fair or not exploit women I think they should all just be done away with. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

stuffIt’s the time of the year where I have to talk about STUFF. You all know what STUFF is it’s what makes it hard to close the closet or get the car in the garage. STUFF is what people give each other during the Holiday season. It’s that ugly sweater from grandma or that new DVD you just bought yourself because you didn’t think anybody would get it for you. Now that you got all this new STUFF what the hell are you going to do with all the old STUFF? Well we’ll just stick it the storage closet till we want to use it again. That was 20 years ago and now you got so much STUFF you couldn’t find that stuff you looking for. So now that you can’t find that STUFF you go out and buy more and use it for a week and then it goes in the closet. You ever drive around in the spring and see garage sales people are trying to get rid of STUFF so that they can go get more STUFF they don’t need. I watched on person go from there garage sale to one on the next block to buy more STUFF. It’s a status symbol the more STUFF you have the more successful you are, that’s really not true. Look at the homeless person wheeling the shopping cart full of STUFF well may in his world he is successful. Hell he’s probably happier than a lot of other folks running around and buying STUFF. I drove by one of those garage sales last spring and the guy had enough STUFF out there to decorate two apartments the size of the one I’m living in. What do you think would happen if everybody just stopped collecting Stuff and threw what they did have out? Boy that would be some mess. Well this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

N1ogTvE3Here’s what really piss’s me off about the holidays. It’s not everybody trying to see how drunk they can get or how rude they can be in the stores. What really gets me going is when I see XMAS instead of Christmas. Now I’m far from religious I just think that XMAS is sort of derogatory. First I never think of Christmas as a religious holiday I think of it as a great time for kids and family. I don’t know who got the great idea to put the word Xmas out there they probably didn’t mean anything bad but maybe it was as atheist or someone that just didn’t think Christ belonged in the word. Well if that’s the case why didn’t they just call it KIDMAS instead after all that’s how I feel about the holiday? So please don’t use Xmas on any of your holiday stuff this year if you don’t want to say Merry Christmas you can Merry Kidmas instead. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

donald-trumps-ex-wife-once-said-trump-kept-a-book-of-hitlers-speeches-by-his-bedDonald Trump is at it again proposing solutions to problems that will only exasperate them and increase distrust of American in the Muslim community. When you talk about the Muslim religion you’re not talking about some small cult like religion. You’re talking about the second largest or about to become the second largest religion in the world. You’ve got to hand it to Donald he doesn’t pick small groups to piss off he’d rather piss off as many people as possible in the shortest time. I don’t know if these are original thoughts or he has surrounded himself with every nut job in the country and is now taking their advice. It could be a case of a bunch of dumb shits just hanging around and collecting big checks for kissing his ass. Whatever is going on over there it’s becoming more dangerous every day. I like most people don’t think he can win but that’s what a lot of people thought when Dewey ran against Truman. Remember the incorrect headline Dewey wins. If Trump were to become president I actually think you’d see a lot of people packing up and leaving the US. His policies make since too dangerous people, the same type of people that made Hitler and Mussolini possible. Those of you that are saying don’t worry people will see he an ass hole soon and the real Republican candidate will come forth. Hey people take a look at some of these people there just as bad as he is. If Donald loses in his bid to become the Republican candidate for President he has positioned himself to become one of the most irrelevant ex- candidates in history (not counting Sarah Palin).Well this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

imagesThere was another mass shooting this week. This on happened in the US and the usual cries for gun control were heard. I must say before I begin that I’m neither pro gun nor anti gun. If you’re a true hobbyist and have taken firearms safety courses and have no mental problems or are a member of the Klan or international terror groups you can have a gun. A gun that isn’t capable of 750 rounds per minute or has ammo capacity of more than 16 rounds (I think that too many but the cops use that). Now back to reality just getting tougher controls on the purchase will not stop illegal guns being on the street. This won’t happen until the weapons manufacturers and retailers can be held responsible. Now give that bull shit that guns don’t kill people, people kill people. If there is no gun to use, people can’t use them, now you’re going to say well they just use a knife or a club. Those weapons are very personal you have to close and a unarmed person can still defend themselves. Weapons manufacturers put their products out there with little concern as to who is going to use them. The NRA has no problem with an individual buying a semi automatic AR15 and adding a 50 round magazine to it and saying it’s for hunting. Hunting what the zombie hoard? It takes only a little mechanical ability to make that weapon fully automatic and the only thing you hunt then is your neighbor. So long as weapons manufactures can sell to non military sources without fear of any consequences there will far too many guns on the streets. I heard Trump said things would have been different in Paris if everybody was armed. Yeah there would have been more dead most of them innocent. You know how scared you get in a gun fight you don’t aim and if you do you’re a stone cold killer and need to be locked up. Hey this is Flounder saying CIAO, and can’t we all just get a long, from Medellin, Colombia.
