It's about time he shut the hell up

He has awakened me more times in the middle of the night than the emergency broadcast system has in my entire life.

I do love Oxiclean though, and us it in a lot of ways and in the laundry.

I wonder if he yelled everything in his dreams too ?

Later, Billy....I hope your replacement isn't gonna be that shamwow guy.

OK. Here's a funny story. Bear with me.

I was disgusted with both bathrooms in our house.
My kitchen HAS to be clean.
My bathrooms HAVE to be clean.
I AM FUCKING ANAL.
I HATE NASTINESS.
I HATE GERMS.
I HATE BACTERIA.
I LOVE CLOROX.
I LOVE PINESOL.
I LOVE KABOOM.

I told Sammi and Steve, "I just cleaned out both bathrooms with KABOOM.
Soooo, DO NOT go into the bathrooms for 30 minutes.
Let it do its work....PLEASE??!!"


So Sammy says, "If I go in there and Billy Mays springs out of the toilet, is it safe and I can finally take a good crap?"





I said yes.

Wasn't "pogo" under copyright, so your were technically speaking of selling the "gopo" 40' extension ladder?

THIS SONG GOT ME TODAY.

I miss you so fucking much.
I hadn't heard this song for so long.
Tears spill down my cheeks. I miss you.
I want you to come back, Gerry.
I want you back.
I want you back.
I want you back.
I want you back.
You're not coming back.
God hates me.
He takes away the people I love most.

Yes, that too. Or to some extent. But he did say he was wrong, even if it was years too late. Anyway, he doesn't quite fit into a little box.

Here's the staggering and heart stopping list of names on the Viet Nam War Memorial. I was profoundly moved by seeing it. I haven't been in DC since 1972, when I was here with hundreds of thousands protesting that fucked war built on lies.

Time is truly a weird thing. And now once again we have thousands of our service people dying on foreign soil over yet another brand of evil twisted lies. Near the Capitol and around here you can see dozens of war memorials, some from the Civil War. The bronze is now a saturated green,

The statue of the grunts from Viet Nam is now starting to show the beginning signs of that bronze patina. How many more greening bronze statues to the tragic answer of war do we have to tolerate, before sanity takes over the public mind?

The Viet Nam Memorial is the most profound and provocative war memorial that I have ever seen. Yet the toll continues in the neglect that vets face everyday, as other "spending priorities" marginalize their needs and trample their sacrifices. Fuck those who believe the lies of today and commit the sin of sending the noble, the innocent and heroic of our best sons and daughters to this goddamn curse. Fuck them until their souls cry out in the darkness that envelops their hearts.

There is something better somewhere. I will work for it.

if you had an IQ of 90 or less, they would put you in that troop that worked all the front lines in the most dangerous missions and combat zones.

I think they called it "expendable assets"

Thanks cowboyangel for posting your thoughts on your visit to DC.

I've taken my children twice to DC to see the sights and each time they have been compelled to discuss peace afterward. The whole city seems like a memorial to death, war and imperialism.

Fortunately the Smithsonian is there too and you can spend some time celebrating innovation and human excellence.

Oh and the boys always liked the Lincoln Memorial best.

On one trip, Jason, my youngest at 13 that year, whispered that the Vietnam War Memorial was like a "bleak wall of senseless sacrifice".

We had taken our picnic to the Mall that day and watched as endless streams of people approached the wall to find their relatives' name. We talked about the facts of the war and the influence that political decisions had on it. But most of all we talked about the effect on families and how it still affected them years later.

My father is a local historian here and in 2004 he published his 14th book in which he interviewed all of the families of those from our village who had served in the Second World War. It started out being a romantic commentary on the heroes of war but ended up being a sad commentary on what happens to the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and a social history on the loss our village had sustained.

There is no romanticism in the act of war. It hurts countries, humanity and families and has no redeeming end. When humanity can choose to resolve differences through negotiation and set aside the greed which motivates the acquisitive nature of war, then we will have achieved something like a neutral place to explore peace from.

good riddance.
jeez Simon, it is now known he was a closet gay, and not a child molester. It is sad to know that even in this world today, he felt it better to not reveal his normal, run of the mill, homosexuality, than rebuke child molestation charges by revealing his secret to the public. i guess you just can't win. He was a great talent and an immense humanitarian especially when it came to kids (of which he remained one). It was all based on greed and crruption of people skemming ways to get at his money.


RIP Michael...
