November 24, 2017

Well, it’s Black Friday (as they call it) but I’m not going anywhere near a shopping mall or retail store. Instead, I’ll be bashing a little orange ball around a sun-splashed course under unseasonably-warm, 90 degrees-ish blue skies. But it doesn’t mean I can’t post a few thoughts to catch up after what has been a crazy week work-wise that has left me practically no time for anything else.

…hard to believe it’s the holiday season and the next day it won’t be a holiday season day we’ll be in 2018. I don’t feel as if this year has rocketed by that fast, but then again maybe it has.

..this video made me laugh out loud.

…it when these kind of things happen – even to pros! – that I understand fellow Goodboy “Killer” Kowalski’s view that there is no such thing as a gimme. Putt them all out.

…and when things like this, or this, or this happen it’s time for Congress to enact a zero tolerance rule for behavior from its members. Look, no one is forcing these guys to run for elected office. And when they are representing someone’s congressional district or state, there should be a lower bar for reprehensible behavior. Of course, it has to be proven (as Franken’s and Barton’s has, whereas Conyers’ (and, for that matter, Alabama judge Roy Moore’s) has not; otherwise, all you’re doing is conducting a witch hunt. But clearly something has to be done so that Americans’ confidence in their elected leaders – and leadership – is restored.

…not that I expect anything like that to happen any time soon.

…Frankly, I think the media is doing a damned fine job of humiliating themselves on a daily basis without the help of WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, thank you.

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to seeing how Tiger Woods plays in his return to professional golf next week. Course, I’ll be playing golf in Vegas while he’s doing his thing in the Bahamas, but that doesn’t mean I can’t watch the replay in Golf Channel, at, say, the Wynn sports bet room on big-screen TVs while enjoying a Bloody Mary or two. I’m guessing Tiger knows this is his last chance and that he’ll just give it his all and either compete at a very high level or call it a career.

…Why the left hates Thanksgiving:

What animates the left is the conviction that everything (except their own tastes, preferences and opinions) is terrible and must be reformed until it too is like them. America is racist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, arachnophobic and claustrophobic. Every second the prison-industrial complex is gunning down drug dealers for no other reason than the color of their skin (and the guns in their hands), the military-industrial complex is bombing countries full of terrorists just because of the color of their skin, and the turkey-industrial complex is destroying the environment.

The militant lefty is an overgrown brat who never made the emotional transition from the funk of total unfairness that teenagers inhabit to the appreciation for life of the mature adult. Picking a fight at the Thanksgiving table is exactly the sort of thing a teenage brat would do. That’s why there are a dozen guides telling lefties exactly how to pick an unwinnable fight whose only purpose is to ruin a meal.

…actually it’s not just Thanksgiving. The left hates everything. They are haters and dividers. They simmer with anger and resentment and look for perceived slights in everything they do and see. And that’s why I’m so thankful this Thanksgiving for having a president like Donald J. Trump. The fact he is making so many people’s lives even more miserable than they already were brings me tidings of great joy.

…and it’s not just that I’m thankful for. It’s this.

…and it’s this as well. If last year’s election of Donald J. Trump has done more than anything is expose the liberal left for everything they are and what they espouse. They’re a bunch of hypocrites, and the phrase, “suck it up, buttercup” and get on with your lives comes to mind. Our time on this earth is far too short, tenuous, and precious to spend it in such intellectual and shallow misery. Me, I’m thankful that I live in a country where there is food to eat, clean water to drink, work to be found, money to be made, and a life that can be lived in relative peace and comfort. There aren’t many on this ball of rock floating in space that can say that, and I wish these folks would find a way to understand that. All is not misery, and you social justice snowflakes out there don’t know just how good you’ve got it.

…and with that I’ll call it a blog post. Don’t get hurt out there shopping for bargains!
