Don’t be a Racist Menace to Mississippi while Wearing Stars and Bars to the Polls

Anyone else hear about this (no, the picture isn’t mine, and neither is the story)?

I mean, the Confederate flag is bad enough.

The Confederate flag AND a damn noose? That’s worse.

The Confederate flag, a noose AND the phrase “Mississippi Justice”?

As Bill Murray said so eloquently in Ghostbusters:

“STOP that!”

To be fair, maybe the guy just forgot he was wearing that shirt because he’s so used to covering himself in white sheets.

That’s possible, right?

A hospital worker WOULD have access to bedsheets, after all. Maybe the hospital staff should do an inventory to see if any of their sheets are missing.

Waffle House Hashbrowns

You know what’s better than Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House?

Waffle House hashbrowns.

To be perfectly fair, outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan can’t hold a candle to those shredded spuds of glory, either.

I heard KC O’Dea talking about them on the radio yesterday, and now all I can think about is going to Waffle House and ordering a heaping plate of damn hashbrowns.

Unfortunately, I don’t get paid until Friday.

As Darth Vader once said, “Nooooooooooooooooo!”

The fact that I still eat at Waffle House once in a while (despite the fact that I spent over three years working there) speaks volumes about the food.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s open 24/7, though.

Waffle House hashbrowns can be served with a variety of toppings. They are as follows:

Smothered: onions (🤮)

Covered: cheese

Peppered: jalapeños

Chunked: ham

Capped: mushrooms

Diced: tomatoes

Topped: chili

Country: sausage gravy

My go-to order is a Double (because why settle for one?) hashbrown covered, chunked, peppered, capped and country. A nice helping of Tabasco tops it off.

Bring on the Tums and marathon bathroom breaks!

Going forward, before I vote for any politician, I want to see how he or she orders hashbrowns at Waffle House.

If a politician is even willing to eat at Waffle House, then that’s a plus, no matter what party he or she is affiliated with.

Can you imagine Nancy Pelosi or Paul Ryan showing up at any Waffle House at 3 a.m. during the bar rush? 😂

I certainly can’t, and that’s just plain sad.

Congressional Term Limits

Happy Election Day!

Don’t forget to vote! As long as you vote the same way I do, we’re good.

Especially if you vote twice 😉.

Don’t do that. It’s against the law.

Anyway, I think Midterm Election Day is a great time to discuss something I have felt strongly about for the last ten years:

Congressional term limits.

Why in the world do we not have them?

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of all these old fogies (on BOTH sides of the aisle), who sit on their wrinkly asses in Congress for thirty, forty, even fifty years, and change absolutely nothing.

Except for the depths of their pockets, of course.

Oh, and they make damn sure they have access to better healthcare than the rest of us commoners. Maybe that’s why so many of them live for so long.

My wife and I took a gander at some of the “affordable healthcare options” on healthcare.gov, and the best plan we could find for our family was almost 700 dollars a month…with an 8,000 dollar deductible each for my wife and I.

But do you really think anyone on Capitol Hill has the slightest worry about being able to afford healthcare?

Representatives and Senators are supposed to represent US. We the people. Of MURICA. Instead, they evolve into pseudo-noblemen (and women) who ride their high horses in Washington and only give a shit about their districts during an election year.

Just pull up a list of Representatives and Senators and their net worths. All this fuss about the top 1%? Congress IS PART OF THE TOP 1%!

Maybe if a Representative knew he or she couldn’t be in office for more than, say, six terms (two terms for Senators), then maybe he or she would be more motivated to get something done.

There’s that old ditty, and it goes:

Republicans are red

Democrats are blue

And neither one gives

A shit about you.
