Cracker Barrel offensive to people?

NlzJXnaStEiChHy-800x450-noPad

I say all of us European Americans start protesting C****er Barrel. It uses an offensive slur and it is deeply offensive and mocks our long and proud heritage.

The name is offensive, their logo stereotypes European Americans as people who sit on chairs and lean against what appears to be a bourbon barrel, claiming we are all a bunch of alcoholics. Sure, they’ll SAY it’s a “cracker” barrel but everyone knows crackers don’t come in barrels, they come in bags and boxes!

Change the name C****er Barrel to Caucasian Barrel. After all, white people should have something to be offended by, too!

My Number One Hobby

I think photography is my number 1 hobby. Photography lets you capture an image of something that will be around long after you have gone. It’s a moment in history that you have preserved. I sometimes think, will someone look at one of my photos and wonder what the subject was thinking or what the photographer was thinking when they took the photo?

I sometimes wonder what the subject was looking at. Are they looking at the photographer or a loved one off in the background? I wonder where they are at and who else was there when the photographer clicked the shutter. Even in the old paintings I catch myself wondering about this. I guess because I look at some of mine and remember the story of the photo happening. In one photo as soon as I clicked the button a fight broke out. When I look at that photo that is what I’m seeing… the moment before the fight. Others will look at the photo and thing, oh that’s a great family photo, “What a perfect family”.

Then I look at the odd photo that were staged. The ones where we are looking goofy or mad. The ones that we acted as if we were going to hit someone, or jump off something. Is people in our future going to look at those and be going WTF?

I think that is what draws me to photography. It’s the documenting of my family for generations to come. My great-great-great grand-kids will have thousands of photos to look at and try to know us. Unfortunately I’m not in most of the photos, I’m always on the other side of the camera.

In some of my family photos when I was growing up I’ll see a picture at 5 then another at 9. What happened in the 4 years in between? Or I think of an old car or motorcycle I owned but there is not 1 single photo of it ever happening.

Maybe I’m unique or odd but if I had to choose 1 hobby over all it would be photography.

South Carolina Caves In…

675COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Senate voted Monday to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House. The bipartisan proposal, which emerged after last month’s massacre at a historic black church in Charleston, was approved by a 37-to-3 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

There is another state I promise never to visit again and give $1 of my money to. I need to see what companies operate out of South Carolina and boycott them as well. It’s just the principle of the issue.

Whores for their pimp

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.

– John Adams

I use to think that our elected officials were working on our behalf… I guess I was naive and stupid. The more I see in government the more I feel like a rape victim. At least they could use a little lube while there doing it.

Is this something new or have politicians always been like this? Have they always fucked over the people they represent for big business… I guess a whore does what her pimp tells her, no different.

What one person receives without working for…another person must work for without receiving

Fight Censorship

500lAlways fight against any type of censorship! Once the government starts any type of Censorship it always leads into something else and more. We are adult and can control ourselves without the government telling what I can look at, read, listen to, or think about!  It is their way of controlling the American population

The 13 Rules Of Gunfighting Everyone Should Know

gun1) Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.
2) It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
3) Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
4) Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
5) Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off.
6) The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.
7) The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.
8) Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets…You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’ll be empty.
9) If you’re in a gun fight:
If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
If you’re not loading, you should be moving.
If you’re not shooting, moving or loading, you’re probably dead.
10) In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!
11) If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
12) You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
13) You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.

My Trees

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now I consider myself an arborist. I love trees and I’m always planting seeds to grow new ones. When you plant a tree you have to continuously water it, fertilize it, make sure it’s getting enough and not to much. You constantly have to repot them in new pots to make sure their roots have enough room to grow. So when one dies or someone kills it is a little upsetting.

When the trees become 3 foot tall you stop worrying so much that someone may not see it and run over it. But, that is an assumption that they’re smart enough to realize it’s a tree.

My wife’s niece ran over another one of my trees that makes two in the last month. They wonder why I get so upset. It only took me two years to grow them from seeds caring for them every day. If it would’ve just died I could accept that, but they were killed due to pure stupid fucking ignorance. I will never like her again because of that. Or it would take a very long time for me to get over it.  

Did it look like the picture? Taco Bell

I’ve been doing this for 7 days to see if the items looked like the photos. I also did a taste test and added that too it. I’d love to hear what everyone else thinks.

Some items failed and I didn’t care for their taste, but some items did OK. I tried to get items that I never had before, except the hard taco.

Before we bash the fast food restaurant do a taste test for yourself and be honest. Eat it there where it is fresh and if there is a problem with it see if they can fix it. Where else can you eat for a few dollars.

My Hard Taco

three claws

Looks – I only gave it a 3 out of 5 but for a $1.00 taco they did a pretty good job. It was not soggy at all.

five claws

The only item I gave a 5 out of 5 paws. With some fire sauce (fake hot sauce) it tasted GREAT. Not the best hard taco out there but unless I want to drive 2 hours it’s good.

You tell me what your opinion is.
