My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?


Well, I have had it up to my eye balls with all these people being offended by what someone says. Sorry, I meant to say “liberal bastages” being offended by what a “conservative bastage” has to say.  The “liberal bastages” can say and do anything about or to a conservative and they think we should just let them have their way.  Well, not me my friend. I will call them out; and, I will call them whatever I want as that is what “free speech” is all about.  It is easy as hell to allow speech that you agree with; but, it takes a “set” to allow someone with whom you disagree to have their say.  That is what “free speech” is all about.  The act of allowing someone to express their opinion when you think it borders on or is “hate speech”.  I will continue to say what I want, when I want, and where I want and you’ll have to accept it as my right or try to shut me up. Please try! I served my country for that right as well as for your right. If you try to silence my voice or restrict my right, then do so at your own risk.  I use this forum to express and somewhat debate but I really do not debate well.  I think when it comes to point and I really want to end the debate–I’ll just drag you across the desk and slap “fire from your ass”. I put that in quotation marks as I was quoting my Dad. It is over at that point and I win. YEA!!! I know that is childish, but what can I say, I’m from the old school.

This thing about the high school kid who held the sign asking a gal to the prom with something like “if I were black I’d be pickin’ cotton, but I’m white and I’m pickin’ you for my prom date”.  I thought it was funny but here comes all the “liberal bastages” being offended.  It is a joke “dumbasses”!  This day in time there is still some racism in the world, or in our country, but “get over being a victim”.  There may not be anyone still alive in today’s world that lived during the time of slavery in this country.  BTW, do you know who it was that wanted to keep you “black folks” in slavery?  It was the party of “Dixiecrats” which evolved into the Democratic party of today.  And, the black community votes almost entirely for the democrats. REAL SMART, eh?  They, the liberals, have raised so much hell that the poor guy can’t even attend the prom or any other school functions the rest of the year.  How stupid. He made a joke.  I’ve done the same thing. “If I’d have known it was going to be this much trouble, I’d of picked that damn cotton myself”. Before you go jumping all over me, I said that to a Latvian friend of mine who really did pick cotton when he and his family came here from Latvia. See what jumping to conclusions leads you “liberal bastages” to.

It is a crying shame that we have all these hyphenated Americans when we ought to be just Americans.  I do not give a damn where you are from as long as you work, take care of your family and don’t expect me to do it for you– then you are a man and I will treat you like one.  BUT, come here and “lay on your ass” and expect the American people to care for you and yours, well you can simply kiss my ass. Is that plain enough for you to get my drift? No welfare. No rent subsidies.  No healthcare. No free lunches for kids. And no damn “ANCHOR BABIES”.  After all, it is only good “COMMON SENSE” that you take care of your family and I’ll take care of mine. If need be, any of you who want can now use my “soap box” as “I will sit a spell”.



Well folks, President Trump once again “put his money where his mouth is” so-to-speak.  He once again “laid down the law” to Syria and backed up his words with action. This is the second strike and the third strike may be the fatal blow. And, please take notice, Putin so far has hidden under his desk.  The Obama administration made an obvious mistake by not enforcing the “red line” he laid down. It made the US look weak and afraid to confront anyone.  Can anyone say North Korea?  They became bolder during that time due to the lack of “backbone” shown by Obama. Don’t think for a moment that they, North Korea, are not watching these events unfold and trying to figure out the same thing as everyone else. Is this Trump fellow a “crazy SOB” or is he one “badass SOB”.  I really don’t know my own self. BUT, but, but, it seems to be working so “if it ain’t  broke, don’t fix it”.

Let me tell you a short story to illustrate what I meant from above statement.  Years ago I used to visit a lot of “blues joints” in East St. Louis.  They were known to be rough places and were “black joints” if you get my drift.  No place for a “cracker cowboy” to say the least. But, there I was with my black cowboy hat and gold jewelry hanging everywhere including a solid gold “belt buckle”. People said I was crazy; but, I liked the music and was “pretty cocky”.  I got to know some of the regulars and had no problems although you would have thought so.  I walked thru the door of one of the “joints” late one night and heard someone from one of the tables say, “what’s this cracker think he’s doing in here”.  Someone else, one of the regulars at the table said, “That cracker is here quite often and is either a “crazy cracker” or one badass SOB so we just let him be”. Word spread and I never had anyone else ever challenge me. Same with Trump and the rest of the world.  They do not know which he is so they are choosing, for now, to “just let him be”. Funny how that works!

I’ve never met President Trump. But, people who have seem to say he is a pretty nice guy, so who knows if I’d like him or not. I do know that I do not like some of the things he does and some of his speech is not my style. Having said all that, he is accomplishing great things and is really trying to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” and for that he deserves credit. If I have a leak in my roof and the roofer comes out and says to me, “toss me that F-ing hammer”, I will not tell him not to fix my leaking roof.  I want the leak fixed, he is getting it done, so I’ll toss him the hammer and stay out of his way. After all, it only makes COMMON SENSE to do so. When he is done, I’ll pay him and be glad he came by.  And guess what, Trump is not taking any pay as he is donating it straight to the VETS, I think. Now that is a bargain.

You can bet your last dollar that all the “bad actors” in the world are paying attention to this and thinking maybe, just maybe, “we ought to just let America be”.  If they have any COMMON SENSE that’s just what they are thinking and for that I am grateful.


BTW, for you who did not know of my new Blues, Country and Gospel CD you can purchase a copy at http://www.PayPal.Me/JerrysPlace . It is a double CD and features 27 songs all written and performed by “yours truly” and is only $20.00 plus $3.00 S/H. Hope you order a copy and ENJOY.


Hey, these “kids” first wanted to control “guns” and now they want to control “free speech”.  The calling of boycotts because you disagree is a form of limiting “free speech”.  I and millions of others disagreed with what these “kids” said and did; but, we did not call for boycotts of the stations which put them on air. It continues to amaze me that the media, of all professions, does not see the “folly” in their actions. Does no one realize that the only reason we have the 1st amendment is because of the 2nd amendment? It just makes “COMMON SENSE”. These “kids” have no life lessons and need to get educated about the process before trying to advise the “adults in the room”.

They are now calling for advertisers to boycott the Ingraham Angle to try to shut her up.  She has every right to say what she thinks; and, if they do not like it, then that is their problem.  Just shows what they were not taught in school. We did not call for boycotts of stations which put them on air.  They have the same right to “free speech” as everyone else although I disagree with their ideas. How ’bout we try to shut them up and see what response we get.  They, the “kids” and the media would be screaming for their right to “free speech”.  Well, dumbass, you can’t make this a one way street and neither can I. That is why I stand by and listen to the “liberal bastage’s” BS.  If I want my right, then I have to understand that I must afford them the same right and protect it at all cost.  Without “free speech,” we cease to be a free nation and the only thing protecting our “free speech” is the 2nd amendment.  Redundant, redundant, I know as it was mentioned above; but, so important, that it requires repeating. It only makes “COMMON SENSE” to beat this into some hard heads.

I saw on some show the other day a group of “kids” saying, “if only we could see with our eyes what they saw”.  I can understand that a little; but, let me ask you and them a question, “I saw a horrible auto crash last week—blood and guts everywhere. So, because I saw that am I now an expert on auto safety and everyone should listen to me on what safety laws should be passed? I also saw, with my own eyes, a dog chasing a car.  Now, does that make me believe he could drive the “damn thing” if he catches it?  And furthermore, are you going to listen to me about if he catches it we must give him a driver’s license? This just shows the stupidity of the entire debate. I have a right to free speech and use it here.  I also have a right to own a gun and will exercise that right if you come on my hill to try and confiscate it.  In fact the “kids” have me thinking maybe we ought to buy more weapons although we have plenty; but, again, it is my “right”.

Now, if you see it differently, that’s OK. But if you disagree with me, maybe you should check your “hole” card as you are most likely wrong.  And I promise I will not force you to own a gun. See how simple this is. You stay in your house and run your business and I’ll do the same.  The only time I will confront you is when you come to my house and try to interfere in my way of life.  So simple it’s stupid to do any other way. And besides, it makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.


Hey, that is really an important question! I do not think a lot of people know enough about history to answer that question.  We are slowly losing a portion of our freedoms and the young people of today do not even realize it. They, along with the “liberal bastages,” do not have a clue.  Just think of how the “right” to free speech is being trampled on at colleges around this country. The right to worship is being attacked if you are “Christian”. The right to assemble is also being trampled on if you are a “conservative”. These are rights that every American is entitled to under the constitution. The “bill of rights” with all its amendments  gives us all equal protection under the law, or so some seem to think. BUT, not everyone sees it that way. Take a look at the nonsense happening on campuses around the country and you will see that the some on campus are not allowed to assemble or to speak their mind.

Take a gander at the young people of today that are gathering to “protest” for gun control. They just had a “day of protest” and their right to do so was clear and not obstructed by the people with different views on the subject.  It was mostly a “peaceful protest” and they assembled in several cities across the land. Now, let’s have an “anti-protest” and see how “peaceful” it will be.  You see, the anti-gun control people stayed away and let them have their say.  Tell me the truth now, do you think if the anti-gun control people formed a protest do you think we would be allowed to express our opinions without the other side interfering and causing riots in the streets. You see, it is the “liberal bastages” that are the fascist. They will not allow anyone to speak or assemble peacefully without intervention.

They intervened when people marched to express their opinion on tearing down the “Civil War” monuments. That caused riots; but if they would have stayed at home, as conservatives did for the gun control protest, there would have been no riots.  The conservatives on campus never riot or shout down a “liberal bastage” that comes to a college; but, all hell breaks lose if a conservative wants to express their views on campus. It simply shows how the “liberal bastages” really think.  They believe that you have the right to express your thoughts as long as they are in line with their thoughts. If that is not a restriction of freedom of speech, then “I’ll kiss a fat man’s ass” and I like neither a fat ass or men. Oh my, I’ve done it again. The left will tell you I’ve attacked the “fat” people and the “queers”. Oh well!

And do not get me started on the “liberal bastages” trying to restrict the right to worship.  They have taken prayer out of school and you can not even mention GOD within the classroom anymore. They say it offends them to see such things as a “cross”. The cross offends…but, the “QUEERS” dancing half-naked in the streets for the “QUEER PRIDE PARADE” they seem to like and be OK with such crap. You see their minds are “hardwired 180 degrees out of balance”. They have no “COMMON SENSE” and have been short on “logical thought” for years. I know this might offend you, “liberal bastages” .  But, I don’t really give a rat’s ass. Although, if you pay attention to this blog, it may help to educate you. Let me say right here and now that I do not expect for everyone to agree with me and that is ok, but if you don’t there is a good chance you are wrong.

I truly believe that the young people have a right to protest; but, do you really think they paid for all the buses, stages and equipment that it takes to put on such a march?  No, they did not!  They were funded and being used by a bunch of “liberal bastages”, plain and simple.  It is proven because almost every one of these young people on TV said how they hate President Trump and will never vote for him. They are right about never voting for him because they are not and will not come of voting age before he is out of office. No, just think back to when you were in Jr. high or high school and tell me that you hated the President of that time. Most of you can not tell me who was President during you sophomore or junior year. It’s just another way of realizing someone in the back ground is “pushing the buttons”.

I would like to commend all the young people for trying to make a difference; but, they must be careful for what they wish. They seem to be leaning more towards banning guns and that means doing away with the 2nd amendment. Just let me point out that: without the 2nd amendment, they will shortly be without any of the amendments which support their freedoms of such things as speech and assembly. It was and has been this important amendment that has kept us a free nation all these years.  If these young people had been taught “civics” correctly, then they would have the knowledge to think thru all the blabber from the “liberal bastages” wanting to run and control their lives. The best thing they could do is to study history before opening their mouths and preaching to people like me who have some knowledge and have served “MY COUNTRY”. After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

BTW, I just noticed a post on my FB was pulled and it was a quote from a book that one side does not want others to know about. Shame on you FB!


As stated above, I aim well. Thusly, I’m practicing “GUN CONTROL” and “COMMON SENSE” all at once.  I’m getting ready to buy a couple of extra AR 15s.  I have an older model but everyone who knows me knows I like the last model. New trucks, new guitars, new boats, new rods/reels and new GUNS.  “Is this a great country or What”? I work hard and I play hard.  I once heard it said, “that the one who dies with the most toys, WINS”. I might not win but I bet I get “honorable mention”.

This thing about “GUN CONTROL” has gone nuts. It is “plumb out of hand”.  Maybe it’s just the people calling for “GUN CONTROL” who have gone nuts or maybe they are truly just nuts.  How in the hell do you suppose we get control? Go out and try to confiscate them like some on the left aspire to do.  There are approaching 4/5 hundred million guns in the public’s hands. That is higher than the listed number because I know that no one ever counted mine.  No “GUN OWNER” with a set would ever tell you how many he has. I know for a fact that there are ranches in Texas with safes full of guns and ammo buried with GPS numbers recorded. Now, I’m not one of those “GUN NUTS”, no never not me!

The “liberal bastages” tell us about immigration that there are 11 or so million “illegals” in the country and always ask the question, “How could we ever find and remove that many?” Well, “COMMON SENSE” would then tell you to ask, “How the hell can we round-up and confiscate 4/5 hundred million guns if it is impossible to remove 11 million “illegal” immigrants?”  BTW, the guns are legal and the immigrants are not.

Like I mentioned, I’m shopping for more AR 15s now; but, haven’t found the right ones just yet. Maybe you can help me out here.  You see, all I can find are those ordinary AR 15s.  And me being who I am, I want and deserve a few of the special ones.  You know, the ones that will get off the gun rack, load themselves, go to a school, walk into the school, pull the fire alarm and then shoot the kids all by itself. Like a smart phone that would be a smart weapon.  And I have the smart phone so I want the same type of smart weapon. Please tell me you see the ridiculousness of my statement.  There are no such weapons on the market but you can “BET YOUR ASS IF THERE WERE I”D HAVE MORE THAN ONE”.

Now, having said all this “COMMON SENSE” stuff, I want you to watch and listen to Governor Bevin of Kentucky in this face book post.  Read my comments that follow as it is important that we all realize that this is not the same country we grew up in years ago. If you do not see that, then you are blind and you are part of the problem.  I, personally, think we need to change our culture and “PUT GOD BACK IN THE SCHOOLS” and in our homes. I know this might shock a lot of you but most gun owners are good law-abiding, GOD fearing people of good moral standing.  Let’s come together to change our culture of pornography to a culture backed by the “TEN”.  Then and only then will we see change.

My Comments:

There is a lot that is different in today’s world–kids spend time with a screen not with parents and brothers and sisters–for those who might know me personally, they know I have guns, use guns and this has been since a very young age—12 years old when I got my first gun—22 single shot–bought my first gun at 17/18 years old from Joske’s of Texas–on payment plan–mom had to co-sign the note–a Browning 12 gauge gold trigger hump back–still have them both and I’m 72–saving to pass on to my Grandson–every Sunday after church the entire family met at Mom’s for lunch–we interacted with the entire family all afternoon–we said “grace” before lunch although we had just come from church–we still say “grace” at our house before meals–grandkids are the ones to say it now–they find it refreshing or fun–it has become their place to say “grace”–how many of you can honestly say that the culture you grew up in has not changed–Think seriously about where we are heading and what are we teaching most of the kids today–we have failed the masses and we are seeing the results–BTW, I had a gun, as did a lot of guys like me, at school every day and yet no one was shot–let that sink in–all we had to do was walk to our truck or car and yet we knew better—SOMETHING HAS CHANGED—


Well, everyone should be happy as we have now found all the knowledge you will ever need.  Just ask a “teenager”.  CNN, and all the media, have just discovered this “river of knowledge” that we have been ignoring for years. Teenagers, as it turns out, now have all the answers to how to stop “school shootings”.  Now, “COMMON SENSE” would tell you that if they are that smart then we should be listening to them on a wide range of subjects.  They, the teenagers, have said they know about government and how it works.  They have said that more “gun control” will stop the shootings and that the NRA is “BAD”. If they are really that smart, then “you” should also have them handle all your finances.  Good luck on your retirement. They blame “TRUMP” for the shooting in Florida; but, who was responsible for the “SANDY HOOK” shootings, OBAMA?  This is just pointed out to make a point that the “President” isn’t and never has been responsible for any of the shootings.  BUT, remember now, this teenager thing is our new wealth of knowledge. BS. Like “putting a fox in charge of watching the hen-house”.

Let’s just look at a few cities that have the strongest gun control. Look at Chicago, Baltimore, D.C., or NYC.  All of these cities have been controlled by democrats for 30/50 years and have horrible crime ratings.  Whatever we are doing in Fischer, Texas is what we need to follow in the rest of the country because there is very little crime here.  AND WE HAVE NO GUN CONTROL HERE. I guess that is wrong because most of us have a lot of guns and we control them.  Funny how it works here but would not work everywhere.  I can’t even remember the last “murder” we had here. We have very few to no “home invasions” as everyone knows if you break into a house here you will be shot. And, I should point out, that if you come up any drive to “take away” someone’s guns you will be shot.

Let me run this “COMMON SENSE” stuff by you once more.  The AR 15 used in the school shooting did not go to the school by itself.  It did not load itself. It did not pull the fire alarm.  This was all done by someone.  Now think about this long and hard! Maybe we ought not blame the AR 15; but, blame the person that did all this. Plus, maybe, he is the one to blame for pulling the trigger. “YA, THINK”?

All the anchors on TV like to call this AR 15 an “assault weapon”.  It isn’t such a thing.  They talk about it as if they have knowledge of it; but, hand one of them a weapon and have them take it apart and put it back together.  They can’t! But, they can damn sure talk it to death. The AR 15 is not an automatic weapon, it is a semi-auto weapon. Just like many deer rifles. And I’d like to point out that I have had them since they first started to manufacture them and none of mine have killed anyone. If it was this awful thing the news people talk about, then at least one of mine would have jumped up and killed someone.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t think this thru and try to solve this problem. But rather I’m saying that listening to a bunch of teenagers is not going to get us very far.  Maybe we should try “HARDENING” the target.  Most of, if not all, the shootings are happening at schools.  What do most or all schools have in common. They are “gun free zones” and the shooters know it.  Ever wonder why they don’t go to banks, large business buildings or most government buildings, like Congress, to do their shootings. Of course, you didn’t ever think of that because it makes “COMMON SENSE”.  You would rather listen to a teenager than use “COMMON SENSE” and there in lies the problem. Maybe we ought to figure out how to spot those individuals who lean to the “crazy” side and put them away or take away their guns. But leave me and mine alone.  Now, who do you want to make that decision, ME? I will be “KING” and I will decide who can have a gun and who can’t.  Do you see where this is heading? Because if you will give up one freedom because the decision is hard, then I’ll make all the decisions for you.  I’ll decide where you can work, what you can drive, what you can eat and who you can love. “KING JERRY” will lay down the law and you will follow it or “there will be hell to pay”. I promise you I’ll treat you good.  Now does this make you like this “COMMON SENSE” stuff better? If you do not like this idea, then how the hell does it make any sense to listen to a bunch of teenagers?


Well, here we are once again sitting at my computer fixing to try to explain to “liberals” the folly in their ways. Guess I will never learn that I’m fighting a “never-ending battle” as the “COMMON SENSE” that I write about just flies “right over their heads”.  As my Dad and Mom always said, “in one ear and straight out the other”. But, I feel so sorry for them that I just have to keep trying; so, here I go once again.

I heard a “liberal” on TV the other day say that “President Trump was leading us toward the end of democracy”.  I, as a “COMMON SENSE” type of guy, perked up at that and decided to give it some thought.  Remember now, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to listen to both sides of the argument and try to think it through. The following is just a partial list of the pros/cons of the last administration and the current one.

During the Obama administration we had the following:

  1. Lois Learner and the IRS scandal.  Does anyone know the results? Well she retired and receives full benefits and was never charged although she seemed more than guilty. Democracy?
  2. Obama, himself, went after Fox News and James Rosen and his family with unjustified warrants trying to shut him up. Democracy?
  3. Did Obama not put a video maker in prison? Is he still serving time and he is an immigrant? Democracy?
  4. Obama and nine of his staff, including himself, approved of the “Uranium Deal”. Democracy?
  5. Obama and his administration released more “illegals with criminal records than any President. Democracy?

This is but a short list so that you will start to think thru and discover for yourself all the ways that Obama and his administration were making us a third world type of country by not following Constitutional laws.

Now lets look at a partial list of accomplishments of the Trump administration. This as above is just a partial list so as to make you research for yourself.

  1. The appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. This will have a positive effect on our democracy for years.
  2. The record appointment of 12 Federal Appeals Court Judges. Again positive effect for years.
  3. Individual mandate repeal from Obamacare.
  4. Deregulation of restrictions to free up the business climate to produce more jobs.
  5. The travel ban to restrict bad people from  bad countries to help keep us safer.
  6. Tax Reform which has inspired corporations to bring money from oversea destinations to our shores helping to develop more jobs.  Also, it has inspired thousands of companies to offer bonuses and pay raises to hundreds of thousands of employees.
  7. Defeating the hell out of ISIS.  They are no longer the “JV” team as they are no team at the present time.
  8. And, they have the economy growing at a rate of 2.6 % instead of what we were told to get used to, a rate of 1 to 1.5 %.

The “stock market ” is on fire and everyone’s 401-Ks are up. Yes, even you Trump haters retirement accounts are on the rise.  Please “liberals” review this info and then do a little research on your own. Be “brutally honest” and use some “COMMON SENSE” and you will have to admit that even though we all dislike how he might handle some situations–we have to also admit he is doing a “pretty handsome” job on the economy, foreign affairs and JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. And, there is a good chance that he might get this immigration mess fixed.  Border wall, border security, visa lottery, chain migration and ANCHOR BABIES. Yes sir, Trump, keep on keeping on!!!!!

Just for grins:


Boy is that a mouth full to say! And you know, I have no answer. Most seem to have gone to school, probably more schooling than myself, but they just can’t put 2 and 2 together and come up with 4.  They seem to be lacking in “logical thinking”.  What I usually say is, “they can’t find their ass with both hands and a flash light”. But, I won’t say that cause it would not be nice.  It is true! Just look at the recent vote on taxes. I will just expand a little for you.  They voted against giving the people more money which will go into the economy and that will help jobs.  They voted against lowering the tax rate for business in the U.S. which will help jobs. They sought to “shut down” the government over the DACA program and help “illegals” instead of citizens. If they help control “illegal immigration” that would help raise the wages for guess who? The American worker which is helping jobs!  I swear this is not “rocket science” work to figure this out. Why the hell do you care more about an “illegal” than you do for your own people? It is one of two things, either they are stupid or they have no “COMMON SENSE”; but, it kind of produces the same effect either way.

Just look at what they do everyday! The democrats along with the “elite media”(elite my ass, refer to the above statement about their ass and flash lights) try to bash President Trump every single day.  Let’s just look at a few things he has accomplished.  He filled the SC vacancy with Neil Gorsuch. That alone will help America for years to come.  He has placed more federal district judges than any other President. He has by “shear will” reduced “illegal” immigration. His travel ban has been up held stopping tons of refugees from entering our country and harming Americans. He has helped the Veterans Administration more than any recent President. He has helped reduce unemployment by the formation of almost 2 million jobs. And, And, And he just signed into law the largest or only tax cut in recent history.  And yet, the “lame stream media” and their partners in crime, the democrats, are still bad mouthing his performance. Listen up here and I’ll show you a little test. If you read the above on accomplishments and can see no good in this list, then you have no “COMMON SENSE” or you are a “stupid liberal bastage” and for you there is no hope! The democrats and their partners, the media” have been wrong about everything since slightly before November 8, 2016. They were wrong about him getting the nomination in the primary. They were wrong in the polls, they were wrong and he won, they were wrong to chase the “Russia” story (it is coming back to bite them in the ass) and they were wrong on the tax cut just passed. They have been proven wrong on everything so “why the hell would anyone listen to them on any issue”.

If you simply look at what has happened with the “COMMON SENSE” tax cut and what they, the democrats, predicted corporations would do with the monies, they were once again wrong. AT&T, Wells Fargo Bank, Boeing and more have already put into action either bonuses or pay raises.  The democrats were not even close in their predictions.  So, you “liberal bastages” keep following these stupid leaders of the “D’MONIC” party, and if you really think about it, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” for you to do so due to your lack of “COMMON SENSE”.


I have met my share of “liberal bastages” in my life and I’ve found that most, not all, but most really have no “COMMON SENSE”.  That is not to say they are not “educated” because most are. But, they are educated to the point that they think everyone else is below them.  Can anyone say “elitists”? And many were raised without social skills. Not that I’m a “social butterfly” because I’m not.  BUT, BUT, BUT, I was raised to sense when to “keep my mouth shut”. Evidently, the “liberal bastages” were hiding behind the door when this lesson was taught. My Mom always taught me that when I was a “guest” in someone’s house to “bite my lip” so to speak so as not to offend my host. After all “it is their home” and my opinion really does not matter.

A short while back, my wife and I had a party and some of the guests happened to be “flaming liberals” and some of them seem to think they know better how we should live our lives. I was sitting on my back patio alone when one of them approached me and the discussion came up about “wild hogs” as they had seen the damage they do around our property.  I explained that they were very destructive and could be dangerous but most of the time not. I explained they run in packs of twenty or so and mentioned that I wrote an article about them and showed a photograph of one with 4″ tusks. This person asks if they were really dangerous; and, I explained that when cornered they could do horrible damage with those tusks. I said that the article pointed out that people in NYC/D.C. did not understand why we needed “automatic” weapons as they do not walk out their door and step into a group of these varmints. He said I was over reacting and no one wanted to take my “guns” away. He went on to say that “Obama” never wanted to take my “guns” away and would not do so even now.  I told him he was half right in that “Obama” or no one will take my “guns”; but, that if he thought the left would not confiscate weapons, he was “dumber than a rock”.  That is a sanitized version and for those who really know me, well you can imagine. He went on to say there were better ways to influence and manipulate people and that I was being manipulated by watching Fox News and all Donald Trump’s racist stuff. In a sense, he was calling me a racist and on “neutral ground” calling me that would and will have a much stronger response.  BUT, just like my Mom taught me, I, as a host, also have a responsibility to try “my hardest” not to offend someone who is a guest in my home.  I’m sure I did offend and for that I’m sorry; but, when you “step on my toes,” I’ll get you off and especially in my own home.  BUT, as Mom always said, “two wrongs don’t make a right”. BUT, I think Mom would have done the same as it was completely wrong to try, on purpose, to offend a person in their own home. BTW, it is always the way “liberal bastages” argue.  They pull the “Racist” card because they can’t win with a COMMON SENSE” approach.

Now having said all this, we as Americans have to find a way to live together and respect one another.  I think I might have just hit upon a way.  If we can just teach some “COMMON SENSE” to “liberals”, then it might just work out.  I know we can teach “COMMON SENSE” to “liberals”; but, we may have to “beat it into the hard-headed liberal bastages”. And maybe, just maybe, they can teach us “deplorables” something, but I doubt it.  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to try.



Boy, isn’t that title true. Seems just like a few days ago I was a young buck.  “How time flies when you’re having fun!” seems to come to mind. It seems as though time has just flown by; and, it flies faster and faster the older I get.  This blog is meant to make all, young and old alike, to take notice that this life goes by in a “blink of an eye”.  I know it will make people think of me as an “Old Man” and that is OK, as “I are one”.

I think I’m in the last “quarter” of this game called life. Boy, did I get here fast! Who stole my youth? Just taking a shower has become an accomplishment. Taking a NAP is no longer a treat as it has become mandatory.  If not, I just fall asleep where I sit.  I sleep better in my recliner with the TV blaring than I do in bed.

Do I have regrets, why I surely do.  I regret doing some things and regret some things left undone. I think anyone of the “older” persuasion has from time to time had the same thoughts. If “only” thoughts are a natural way to think. If you stop and think about it, it is really just a waste of time and energy. There is nothing we can do to change the past so let’s look to the future.

They tell me “OLD” is good as in “ANTIQUES”.  Kind of like old music and old movies. When you get to my age you know if you are not already great at something you probably never will be. It takes years of practice to become great at anything and when you are my age you just run out of time. That does not mean to just quit, but rather to be realistic much as I have with my music. When you get to be my age, you know you will never be a great musician, but you still have the drive. So please bear with me in my quest for relevancy in my lyrics and music. After all, I can no longer “go long” for the game-winning touchdown or carry the “PIGSKIN” over the goal line; but, I can somewhat still “carry a tune”.

My latest attempt in music is a new CD about the “BLUES”.  It is somewhat my interpretation of “12 bar blues”.  I have always been a fan of the blues even though I grew up on “country and gospel”. I can never really explain “how much my music means to me”.  I have never been a great singer; but, I really enjoy people hearing my “LYRICS”. I have always been a fan as far back as the 70s and 80s and spent time in South St. Louis listening to old time blues music. I have followed the likes of “Muddy Waters” and “Little Walter” for years.  They migrated from down south in the delta country  to Chicago where they joined the likes of “Howlin’ Wolf” and Etta James. They were all with Chess Records and helped form the “Chicago Blues Scene”.

Hopefully, you will buy my latest Two-CD set, of which a portion of each CD price will be donated to “Help A Hero”, a veterans group helping veteran’s kids.  The following info will lead you through the process. The CD set is $20.00 and that includes “FREE SHIPPING”. And remember my friend that it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

My PayPal account is as follows. Besure to leave your name and address when ordering.
