Congress Is Full Of Sucky People!!!!!!

Warning Explicit Language Follows…Yes I’m On A Rant!

I know I said I’d not get political with my blog but come’on Congress WHAT THE FUCK???? Get off your ass and start working for the people. I don’t care whose to blame…if you ask me the Republicans SUCK the Democrats SUCK. Anyone who has taken an oath in the last decade can kiss my big white ass!!! Why don’t we hold these people accountable!!! Every single person on the so called super committee got in front of a camera and told everyone of us…over and over, that failure was not an option..we won’t fail…we can’t fail…Guess what??? Every single one of them should be fired! The only way this works is compromise people….I am so sick of the government…they stopped acting in our best interest and started acting in their own a long time ago.

Okay lets talk about entitlements….Education, Medicaid, Medicare! If you think we should cut these…kiss my big white ass!!! The 2% at the top…if you don’t think they should pay the same percentage of taxes that the middle class pay…kiss my big white ass!!! Just because they make millions and their tax would be millions doesn’t make it unfair! It makes it fair…If I have a pie and have to give up 1/3 of it why should they not have to give up the same piece of pie. If we all paid the same percentage, then the overall percentage would be lower. We need to take care of our children…education, we need to take care for our elderly…medicare and medicaid. Let face it…there are going to be people who are looking for a handout…you can’t change that, but get the fuck over yourself. People on welfare…make them work in order to get it. If they can wipe their own ass they can work. People in this country are suffering. Not because they are lazy, not because they won’t work, …Because they don’t earn a decent living and everything cost to fucking much!!!! Its because they finished school and there’s not work for them!!!! It’s because the government is worried about their own pockets and not ours.

One way to help our country out is to stop helping every freaking country that can’t get their head out of their own ass!!!! If we’d stay the fuck out our their business and keep it in ours maybe we wouldn’t be in this fucked up position! Tea Party…I agree…stop spending…who you’re blaming it on…Kiss my big white ass!!! Occupy….get to work or come up with a solution…or Occupy my big white ass…and kiss it!!

Here’s my solution…TERM LIMITS …..ON EVERYONE!!!!!! get rid of the Lobbiest’s You run, you get elected, you do your job, you get the fuck out. This way if you fuck up our country, there’s no one to blame it on! You did it! Congress is like two kids fighting over who broke the window…just like I tell my kids…I don’t give a fuck who broke it…get a god dam broom and clean up this mess…well Democrats, Republicans…CLEAN UP THE FUCKING MESS YOU GOT US IN!!!! There’s enough blame to go around. Salary for elected officials…same as the average salary in the US…Not 3x the average…but the average! Medical benefits…average!!! Retirement…there is no retirement….You don’t get to get re-elected…get the fuck out and go back to work!!! Congress…you go to work…you get the job done or you don’t leave. You don’t get to go home, take vacation…you debate and vote until it’s solved….move on to the next issue. You don’t act in the people best interest…get the fuck out! replace them with the 2nd place vote. Everyone pays the same percentage. We stop aid to foreign countries that can’t get out of their own way. We take care of our elderly. We help our homeless. Put our welfare people to work. Stop illegal immigration and undocumented workers. Put our jailed inmates to work in the fields….pay them the same wage as the illegals and use that money to rehabilitate them. When and if they are rehabilitated, release them back into society with the money they have earned….maybe they just might be able to live without knocking over the liquor store to get their next meal. Finally…Only the PEOPLE should decide on government wages and benefits…not the people whose pockets benefit from their own vote!

Agree with me or not…you can’t blame this on a party, if you r blaming this on a party…you’re part of the problem! …you can blame it on greed! The American Dream is fading people…no longer do I feel like if I work hard enough I can succeed…I feel like if I work hard enough…I might be able to buy groceries, watch a little TV and have a beer with my friends….and hopefully my kids will be able to do the same!

I Won’t Eat Your Chips!

I won’t eat your chips

If we were roommates, I wouldn’t eat your chips. What will follow is an account of why I would be a Great roommate.  Aside from the obvious 🙂  good looks and great personality 🙂 but really I like to have fun in all I do. Isn’t that really what you’re looking for in a roommate??

I’m also pretty resourceful and I’m an excellent cook. I drink beer better than most or more than most…never really clear on that one.  I have a bar in my garage and a car in my bar. I have more TV’s than toilets…actually 1 more TV…6. I have a toilet on my porch so you don’t have to walk far and one in my garage for the same reason. I have a Kegorator and a beer machine, two refrigerators…one with a food shelf one with a beer shelf. I like Miller Lite but will drink whatever you buy 🙂 I still play sports even though I shouldn’t and have an ice maker for that reason!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have three stereos in two rooms and only turn off two in one room. I have speakers on my patio and a grill with never-ending gas. I like to work on cars…not yours…and mow the lawn. I have more friends than I can count and three couches to choose from. I have more alcohol in my house than most bars have on their shelves and I’m a Certified Mixologist (self practicing)…truth teller there. If you don’t know what that is…a Bartender is to a Cook what a Mixologist is to a Chef! That’s right…I went to school! I don’t often put my talents to work though…I can make 100’s of drinks but only drink one…at a time!

I rarely turn down a challenge and have more stories than bones broken while performing said challenge. I’ve traveled the world but not a world traveler and I am a master of all I see but have bad eye sight! I have glasses but mostly drink from them.

And maybe the most important reason I would be a great roommate…I have three sock drawers, two underwear drawers and more T-shirts than have time to wear them. I have only two loads of laundry…white and anything not white and I rarely pee on people!

Women to the front of the line…not you Fat Jesus 🙂 I know that’s not called for…but funny!

Famous Marine Corps Quotes

There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.Gen. William Thornson, U.S. Army
Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.
Ned Dolan
A Marine is a Marine.  I set that policy two weeks ago – there’s no such thing as a former Marine.   You’re a Marine,  just in a different uniform and you’re in a different phase of your life.  But you’ll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico.  There’s no such thing as a former Marine.

General James F. Amos, 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps

I come in peace, I didn’t bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.

Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders

Hell, these are Marines.  Men like them held Guadalcanal and took Iwo Jima.  Bagdad ain’t shit.
Marine Major General John F. Kelly
We signed up knowing the risk. Those innocent people in New York didn’t go to work thinking there was any kind of risk.
Pvt. Mike Armendariz-Clark, USMC; Afghanastan, 20 September 2001
As reported on page 1 of the New York Times
The safest place in Korea was right behind a platoon of Marines. Lord, how they could fight!
MGen. Frank E. Lowe, USA; Korea, 26 January 1952
Marines know how to use their bayonets. Army bayonets may as well be paper-weights. 
Navy Times; November 1994
Why in hell can’t the Army do it if the Marinescan. They are the same kind of men; why can’t they be like Marines. 
Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, USA; 12 February 1918
The United States Marine Corps, with its fiercely proud tradition of excellence in combat, its hallowed rituals, and its unbending code of honor, is part of the fabric of American myth. 
Thomas E. Ricks; Making the Corps, 1997
For all of those that have son’s or daughter’s atbootcamp let me pass on what I found. Let me give you a little back ground first. When my son left home he had no motivation, he was lazy,slobby, no pride, no self worth. This is the boy that got off the bus March 18th at Parris Island. The man that I met on Thursday for parents day is AWESOME. There is no way I can describe to you all the difference. He looks different, he walks different, he talks different, he has such a sense of bearing and pride all I could do was look at him in awe. Oh yes, the training is hard, what he went through is unimaginable to any one that has not been there. They are definitely taught to be Warriors. Let me tell you the surprise of what else they are taught. My Marine son has better values, better morals, bettermanners than any one I know. It is so much more than Yes Sir, Yes Mam…so much more. He cares about how he looks, he cares about what he does, and its not a boastful, bad ass thing. He is a true gentleman. I saw patience, and a calmness in him that I have never seen. I could never express my gratitude enough to the Marine Corps for what they have given my son. I knowthis, I have an 11 year old Devil pup still at home. When the time comes for his turn if I had to I would take him kicking and screaming all the way. Although I’m sure that will not happen. The hero worship I see in my younger sons eyes for his Marine brother tells me I will have two Marines in the family, and I will be one very proud mother. 
“Cybil”, Mother of a Marine writing to the myMarine Group
The raising of that flag on Suribachi means a Marine Corps for the next five hundred years. 
James Forrestal, Secretary of the Navy; 23 February 1945
(the flag-raising on Iwo Jima had been immortalized in a photograph by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal)
I have just returned from visiting the Marines at the front, and there is not a finer fighting organization in the world! 
General of the Armies Douglas MacArthur; Korea, 21 September 1950
We have two companies of Marines running rampant all over the northern half of this island, and three Army regiments pinned down in the southwestern corner, doing nothing. What the hell is going on? 
Gen. John W. Vessey Jr., USA, Chairman of the the Joint Chiefs of Staff
during the assault on Grenada, 1983
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps! 
Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem. 
Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985
Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They’re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They’ve got really short hair and they always go for the throat. 
RAdm. “Jay” R. Stark, USN; 10 November 1995
They told (us) to open up the Embassy, or “we’ll blow you away.” And then they looked up and saw the Marines on the roof with these really big guns, and they said in Somali, “Igaralli ahow,” which means “Excuse me, I didn’t mean it, my mistake”. 
Karen Aquilar, in the U.S. Embassy; Mogadishu, Somalia, 1991
For over 221 years our Corps has done two things for this great Nation. We make Marines, and we win battles. 
Gen. Charles C. Krulak, USMC (CMC); 5 May 1997
Come on, you sons of bitches! Do you want to live forever? 
GySgt. Daniel J. “Dan” Daly, USMC
near Lucy-`le-Bocage as he led the 5th Marines’ attack into Belleau Wood, 6 June 1918
Gone to Florida to fight the Indians. Will be back when the war is over. 
Colonel Commandant Archibald Henderson, USMC
in a note pinned to his office door, 1836
Don’t you forget that you’re First Marines! Not all the communists in Hell can overrun you! 
Col. Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller, USMC
rallying his First Marine Regiment near Chosin Reservoir, Korea, December 1950
Marines die, that’s what we’re here for. But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means YOU live forever. 
the mythical GySgt. Hartman, USMC; portrayed by GySgt. R. Lee Ermey, a Marine Corps Drill Instructor using his own choice of words in Full Metal Jacket, 1987
You’ll never get a Purple Heart hiding in a foxhole! Follow me! 
Capt. Henry P. Crowe, USMC; Guadalcanal, 13 January 1943
We are United States Marines, and for two and a quarter centuries we have defined the standards of courage, esprit, and military prowess. 
Gen. James L. Jones, USMC (CMC); 10 November 2000
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.
Gen. William Thornson, U.S. Army
I love the Corps for those intangible possessions that cannot be issued: pride, honor, integrity, and being able to carry on the traditions for generations of warriors past. 
Cpl. Jeff Sornig, USMC; in Navy Times, November 1994
I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold. 
1stLt. Clifton B. Cates, USMC
in Belleau Wood, 19 July 1918
Courage is endurance for one moment more… 
Unknown Marine Second Lieutenant in Vietnam
My only answer as to why the Marines get the toughest jobs is because the average Leatherneck is a much better fighter. He has far more guts, courage, and better officers… These boys out here have a pride in the Marine Corps and will fight to the end no matter what the cost. 
2nd Lt. Richard C. Kennard, Peleliu, World War II
A Marine should be sworn to the patient endurance of hardships, like the ancient knights; and it is not the least of these necessary hardships to have to serve with sailors. 
Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery
Lying offshore, ready to act, the presence of ships and Marines sometimes means much more than just having air power or ship’s fire, when it comes to deterring a crisis. And the ships and Marines may not have to do anything but lie offshore. It is hard to lie offshore with a C-141 or C-130 full of airborne troops. 
Gen. Colin Powell, U. S. Army
Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff
During Operation Desert Storm
This was the first time that the Marines of the two nations had fought side by side since thedefence of the Peking Legations in 1900. Let it be said that the admiration of all ranks of 41 Commando for their brothers in arms was and is unbounded. They fought like tigers and their morale and esprit de corps is second to none. 
Lt Col. D.B. Drysdale, Commanding
41 Commando, Chosen Reservoir, on the 1st Marine Division Division
The wonderful love of a beautiful maid,
The love of a staunch true man,
The love of a baby, unafraid,
Have existed since time began.

But the greatest of loves, The quintessence of loves.
even greater than that of a mother,
Is the tender, passionate, infinite love,
of one drunken Marine for another.

“Semper Fidelis”

General Louis H. Wilson
Commandant of the Marine Corps
Toast given at 203rd Marine Corps Birthday Ball
Camp Lejueune, N.C. 1978

You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is that they are. 
Father Kevin Keaney
1st Marine Division Chaplain
Korean War
There was always talk of espirit de corps, of being gung ho, and that must have been a part of it. Better, tougher training, more marksmanship on the firing range, the instant obedience to orders seared into men in boot camp. 
James Brady, columnist, novelist,
press secretary to President Reagan, television personality and
Marine
The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps. 
General Alexander A. Vandergrift, USMC
to the Senate Naval Affairs Committee, 5 May 1946
By their victory, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue. 
Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, U.S. Navy
Being ready is not what matters. What matters is winning after you get there. 
LtGen Victor H. Krulak, USMC
April 1965
The Marine Corps has just been called by the New York Times, ‘The elite of this country.’ I think it is the elite of the world. 
Admiral William Halsey, U.S. Navy
I still need Marines who can shoot and salute. But I need Marines who can fix jet engines and man sophisticated radar sets, as well. 
General Robert E. Cushman, Jr., USMC
Commandant of the Marine Corps, 17 May 1974
I can’t say enough about the two Marine divisions. If I use words like ‘brilliant,’ it would really be an under description of the absolutely superb job that they did in breaching the so-called ‘impenetrable barrier.’ It was a classic- absolutely classic- military breaching of a veryvery tough minefield, barbed wire, fire trenches-type barrier. 
Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, U. S. Army
Commander, Operation Desert Storm, February 1991
I am convinced that there is no smarter, handier, or more adaptable body of troops in the world. 
Prime Minister of Britain, Sir Winston Churchhill
The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle. 
Gen. John “Black Jack” Pershing, U.S. Army
Commander of American Forces in World War I
Do not attack the First Marine Division. Leave the yellowlegs alone. Strike the American Army. 
Orders given to Communist troops in the Korean War;
shortly afterward, the Marines were ordered
to not wear their khaki leggings.
The American Marines have it [pride], and benefit from it. They are tough, cocky, sure of themselves and their buddies. They can fight and they know it. 
General Mark Clark, U.S. Army
They (Women Marines) don’t have a nickname, and they don’t need one. They get their basic training in a Marine atmosphere, at a Marine Post. They inherit the traditions of the Marines. They are Marines. 
LtGen Thomas Holcomb, USMC
Commandant of the Marine Corps, 1943
I’ve always been proud of being a Marine. I won’t hesitate to defend the Corps. 
Jonathan Winters, comic and Marine
Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary. 
Gen. A. M. Gray, USMC
Commandant of the Marine Corps
A Ship without Marines is like a garment without buttons. 
Adm. David Dixon Porter, USN in a letter to
Colonel Commandant John Harris, USMC, 1863
The Marines have landed and the situation is well in hand. 
Attributed to Richard Harding Davis (1864-1916)
If I had one more division like this First Marine Division I could win this war. 
General of the Armies Douglas McArthur in Korea,
overheard and reported by Marine Staff Sergeant Bill Houghton, Weapons/2/5

Happy Birthday Marines! Semper Fi!

This Thursday November 10th, Join me in celebrating the Marine Corps 236th Birthday. I start out at the CSYC around 6:30 and then off to a few local bars to drink to the Marine Corps and to all my Brothers who served with me and to All those who gave their last full measure of devotion to our country.

For the Marine Corps this a tradition that dates back to the beginning to Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the birthplace of the Marine Corps on November 10, 1775. For me this is a tradition that started in 1985 and a tradition that I carry on to this date and hopefully many more to come.

From Wikipedia….According to tradition, Tun Tavern was also where the United States Marine Corps held its first recruitment drive. On November 10, 1775, the First Continental Congress commissioned Samuel Nichols, a Quaker innkeeper, to raise two battalions of marines in Philadelphia. The tavern’s manager, Robert Mullan, was the “chief Marine Recruiter.” Prospective volunteers flocked to the place, enticed by cold beer and the opportunity to join the new corps. The first Continental U.S. Marine unit was composed of one hundred Rhode Islanders commanded by Captain Nicholas. Some three million U.S. Marines have been exposed to the significance of Tun Tavern. Each year on November 10, U.S. Marines worldwide toast the Colonial Inn.

One night while I was in Marine Corps bootcamp in the summer of 1985 my drill instructor Sgt Thompson talked about the traditions of the Marine Corps and he passed on something that was told to him by his drill instructor…he said…on this day (November 10th) whether you are a lifer (a Marine who stays in until required retirement age) or you do your 4 and out. Whether you love or hate the Marine Corps, once you make it through bootcamp and bare the title United States Marine; you will find yourself in a bar and you’ll pick up a glass a bottle and raise it above your head and toast to the Marine Corps to your Brothers and to all that have given their life so that yours could be free.

On this Thursday November 10th if you’re in your local bar…look around, you’ll a group of Marines or maybe the older quite guy at the bar taking his drink…under his breath before each sip he will utter the names of his brothers. He might even tell you a story or two. But either way, he’ll be there…remembering honoring those who have served.

On this day I will be honoring the following;

Me, Myself and Hank Moody

By now you’ve possibly read my other blogs on this subject, if not please do so. https://timhon.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/so-im-having-a-drink-with-hank-moody-a-story-of-fiction-and-truths/  Hank Moody for the non-knowing is a character in Showtime’s Californication whom I’ve been told my persona slight resembles. Hank is a writer and has many flawed personality traits as do I…flawed personality traits…not writer…exactly. Hank drinks, does drugs, has no morals, is a somewhat bad parent (but he does try), and for the most part does what he wants without regard to others. All things I display at times…sans the drugs… I too, try to do the right thing…most of the time, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out.

Hank has a daughter named Becca that he loves dearly but struggles to do right by. I too have a daughter(s) two of them. I love them more than life itself…more than my life! But I often struggle with trying to live my live and raising them… especially lately! You see I’ve been divorced for several years now and I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that I would remain un-married or without significant for the rest of my life. Mainly because it took so long to get over my ex…and sometimes…sometimes I wonder if I ever did. Not that I miss her anymore, maybe just miss the family. Anyway, the last few years I was involved with people who made me rethink my original plan. But then again neither of them worked out and it takes me awhile to regain myself once again….back to the plan I go. If there’s one thing that makes you forget someone more than anything its…Booze and fun!!! Both of which I am equally as good at as my friend Hank. It’s not my goal, but when all things are quiet…it’s hard to sleep.

I think this is why I like Hank….He has all these problem…flaws like me…but yet I think we’re both good people. I know I try to do the right thing. I’ve always struggled this way though….to do what’s right…or what’s fun and makes me feel alive! I just do what I do to forget some of the pain to forget some of the things I’ve done. I don’t like the quiet the silence….

The problem is that some of the things I do… he does hurts the ones we love…I don’t know how to change that. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to this show…Californication. Hank’s flaws are my flaws they’re our flaws but yet things work out…I’m hoping the new season (5) (starting in January) has Hank fixing things with Becca with Karen…maybe then I can to fix things. Maybe in this season Hank will grow up…maybe I will.

I miss you both!
