Avengers – Age of Ultron ‘Review’

Age-of-Ultron-ReviewI watched the movie Avengers – Age of Ultron last night. It was OK but not extremely great, as I was expecting. It’s a group super heroes making decisions that will effect the word and they’re doing it very recklessly. Tony Starke decides on his own to protect the word with A.I. Intelligence, and it fails horribly. We don’t know a number but we do know hundreds if not thousands died. He directly caused it. I know it’s a movie and I’m not suppose to look that far into it but jeez.

Thor goes off to a cave, here on earth, to meditate and just shows back up later in the movie. What was that all about? Why can other warriors from Thor’s realm come and help out? They’ve been here before in our history, so why not now. Why did War Machine come help earlier in the movie. Another thing is why didn’t the Hulk grow to the size he did in his movies. The Hulk was like 20 foot tall or so and huge.

It was entertaining but it wasn’t what I thought it would be or what I was hoping for. The movie Thor and Captain America was better than the Avengers 2 in my opinion. But who am I?

Do not go gentle into that good night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Well Said Mr. Halstead

He spoke the truth and it cost him his job!

Surf City Police Chief Mike Halstead has retired effective immediately following an emergency meeting called in reference to a Facebook post he made.

Open letter from a Police Chief , this Black Lives Matter group is nothing more than an American born terrorist group brought on by the lie of the hands up don’t shoot during the criminal thug Michael Brown incident. The FBI and other Government Law Enforcement groups need to step up and put a stop to this. The Government and blacks would not tolerate the White Supremacist group to march through the streets and call for the murders of a race of people and a group of public servants. I agree there is a race problem in this country. It is not brought on by police officer doing their sworn duty, it is brought on by the government, the President and his cronies Al Sharpton, who is a criminal tax evader (but has the support of our so called President), Jessi Jackson, Eric Holder and that ignorant S.O.B. Farrakhan who should be charged with solicitation for murder, lord knows a white man would be arrested for the same actions of idiot Farakhan. I am sure there are many hard working Black people who will agree with me. I have been a Police Officer for 35 years. I do not judge anyone by the color of their skin, but by there actions. A criminal is a criminal whether a police officer or any other profession. I will not state statistics because black lives matter do not care or believe proven statistics. I put allot of the blame for these cop murders on the media and the way they report police related shootings. There is no need to list or even state the race of a person shot by the police. It is more important to wait for the facts and report those. But and a big but that does not make money for these greedy media ass holes. When a black thug is killed by the police they are all over it as is Mr. Barack Obama. However when a police officer white, black or any race is murdered for doing his job the media is short with it’s reporting or not at all. When a white person is killed by a black officer you hear nothing. Has our so called President spoke publicly about these murders of police officers by blacks, HELL NO he has not. Step up Mr. President, or step down because we do not need you. Has our Attorney General spoke against these murders, no of course not because she was appointed by Barack Obama. Now let me say this, and this is not a threat but common knowledge. I have instructed my officers to be vigilant, if threatened take appropriate action. If that means shoot a thug, then do it and answer for it while you are still alive not dead. Law Enforcement is fed up with this murderous society who want to take out those who protect and serve. Imagine if all law enforcement shut down for just 1 day. There would be murders, rapes, robberies, you name it. America wake up, all of you black, white, Mexican whatever you need the police, we do not need you. End this Black Lives Matter bull shit and start a movement that all lives matter. As for the New Black Panther movement who wants to kill whites and cops, go for it, we are ready for you. You take one of us and there will be 100 who will step up and end you. This letter is not meant to offend anyone, just the feelings of a man who has spent the last 35 years of his life serving and protecting, for what so a thug can take it or to be treated as a criminal by the very people I swore to protect. Let’s get this around folks so maybe our President and the media will get a wake up call. Be safe all of my Brothers and Sisters in blue, not white, black, yellow or brown BLUE.

Worthless Piece of Shit

19A friends wife goes to Costa Rica for a couple of college credits this summer and comes home to decide she’s no longer in love with him. Now they’ve been very happily married for 7 years or so, I did the photography at their wedding. They seemed like the perfect couple on the outward appearance. Neither of them wanted any kids and they pretty much did everything together… so what happened? In my personal opinion she got down to Costa Rica and started hanging out with the young college kids and enjoyed that lifestyle. I think she partied a little too much and wanted some hardcore lovin’s and found a young man to provide that to her. I think she liked that strange pecker so much she can’t get it out of her mind. All she had to do is come home and act like nothing had happened and nobody would ever know.

I think it was part of the getting the strange cock and the feeling of acting young and carefree that has attracted the single life to her. She wants to be free and able to experience sex with other men and have fun while she can… OK but didn’t the bitch think of that before she said those vows? Didn’t she try other cock or go down on another chic first? Oh wait… let me get married, buy a house, get a dog, and have all the responsibilities as an adult and then decide she’d rather just live on someone else couch and bang other men whenever she wants. Guess what RED, sex with any new partner is the best for the first couple of months. What you need to look for is good sex after 7 years of marriage. ’m sure it’s not all her fault… but he’s more my friend than she is so I’ll stick by his side. I liked his soon to be ex-wife but she has proven to be no more than a cock loving slut. (which isn’t bad and if he wasn’t a friend I’d try and tag a piece while it’s being given away) . hmmm… i wonder if he has any nudes of her? I’d like to give that little red fiery bush a try.

I think what hurts him the most is that he didn’t see it coming… and it broke his ego.

Anytime a woman loses a bunch of weight, goes back to college, then goes to Costa Rica for two months and parties every night, that is your sign that your relationship is coming to an end. She’s looking to get NASTY! … diagnosed by Me!

Dealing with Gossip

Here are some tips that can help when dealing with gossip.

Ignore it

This may be easier said than done. If someone comes to you with gossip that you know can cause harm if spread just say you don’t want to be a part of it or you don’t want to get involved. Take yourself out of the equation to not cause any conflicts.

Ride it Out

One of the best aspects of Gossip is that there is always something new. If you happen to be the latest rumor your only the top story until another one comes along. Realize that right now things may suck but in a week or two someone will do something crazy and your story will be old news. With time things will pass.

Talk to your friends

There is nothing like a great group of friend to help you deal with gossip. They can help you laugh about the situation or find ways to deal with it. They will be right by your side so you dont have to deal with it alone. Your friends will stand by you because they know who you are that the gossip is just that gossip.

Tell someone of Authority

If things get out of hand and you feel you can no longer deal with the situation go to an adult. Find someone of authority you trust and know that can help you and let them know what is going on. They will most likely try to help you as much as they can.


Gossip and rumors are 99% of the time are almost always started by someone who doesn’t like you. They are trying to bully you. Stand up for yourself and retaliate so they know you are not someone to be messed with.
