Friday 6/29 Them Doggone Animal Petitions

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

You get that email thing about them China dogs?  Seems like this time of year, they eat up 15,000 dogs.  Some kind of festival deal.  Well I remember when I was a kid fightin’ in Korea,  them guys there ate dogs, too.  It’s a culture thing, kid.  So somebody wants me to sign this petition and send some money to make ‘em stop, but seein’ as how they been eatin’ dogs for hundreds of years I figure they ain’t going to stop.   Then I gets a petition to make office buildings turn down their lights at night cause birds was getting’ confused by them.  Bullcrap!   If half of these people would pay attention to the elections and stuff we might have a better Prez and Congress guys.  People should be worryin’ about other people.

Thursday 6/28 Why Do Kentucky Folks Vote For McConnell ?

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

Charlie, you grew up near them mills and mines.   You remember how bad the poor section of Kentucky was, I betcha.  I can’t figure how them folks, who is almost the lowest  in income in the country, keep on voting for this McConnell hombre.  Gimme a break!  He’s Trump’s lap dog.  Wouldn’t vote on Obama’s supreme judge guy, but now he’s sayin’ that “we gotta get it done for Trump right now”.  Trump says bark, and ol’ Mitch barks.  Trump says jump and Mitch dances around and rolls over.  Bullcrap!  In my world a guy’s either got stones or he don’t.  Why’s he get elected?

Tuesday, 6/26 Harley-Davidson – Careful What You Wish For

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

Well, kid, tell your own kid what lives in Europe not to trade in his Jap bike, cause Harley’s is goin’ up 2 grand cause of them steel tariffs.  Them Harley biggies that rode up to Trumps place to support him is now bitchin’ about it and will close down plants and move some to Europe.  So all them guys who believe ol’ Trump would “make more jobs than anybody’ is findin’ out that he is – over in Europe somewheres.  Sometimes you gets what you wish for – but it’s shoved up your behind.

 

Monday, 6/25 No Due Process

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

So I hear the Prez’s tweets on sending them immigrant folks back home without no judges or hearing or nothing else.   Now I’m  an ignorant old mill hand with  no fancy  degrees or such, but even I knows about “due process”.   Here in Ohio you got a right to a trial even if it’s just for friggin’ jay-walking.   It’s in that Constitution that keeps them politicos from screwing us all over.    I’ll tell you, kid, I’m scared that this guy wants to be a absolute king like old Hitler.

 

 

Sunday, 6/24 Too Darn Much Twitter

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

You  know how I hates twitter.  So I’m tryin’ to watch the news today, and everything is about twitter.  This one twitter this, that one twittered that.  The prez don’t stand up and look us in the eye too much, he’s sittin’ in the crapper twitterin’ away.  It’s like everybody is important and they think everybody else cares.  Bullcrap!   I’m an old steel guy used to work the coking ovens and why the hell  do I care what them Kardishy  ladies does?

Sunday, 6/24 ICE Raids 5 Ohio Towns

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

Hey, Charlie, check your internet.  Them ICE guys goes to 5 Ohio towns around here, and they rounds up 200 Mexico guy’s whats workin’ in them chicken factories.  200!   They scoops ‘em up, and they got them headed back already, leaving their wives and kids behind.  Now what the hell was that all about?  All them guys  what voted for old Trump is probably happy cause’ that’s what he said he’d do.  But you think one of them is gonna clean them chickens for two bucks an hour?   Not me, kid – not me.  Bullcrap.    And now your Aunt Marge will be payin’ a helluva lot more for chicken down at the A&P.  Bullcrap!

Monday, 6/18 Separating Immigrant Families

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave a message.  Press 2 to page me”

.

I gotta tell ya’, kid.  I don’t know what hell’s level we’re sinkin’ to.  Look, I know the immigrant deal is a big mess – but gimme a break.  Takin’ little kids away from their parents and lockin’ them in cages don’t solve nothing.   Not a damn thing.  And that AG guy gets on TV and he’s quotin’ the Bible about how it says it’s OK to do this, and I figures if the Pope hears this and old Pope he sure knows the Bible and so he’s probably peeing himself.  And if he was allowed to swear he’d be cussin’ just like my old top sergeant cussed.  I think even the Pope gets PO’d sometimes.

Monday, 6/14 Protest Signs

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave me a message.  Press 2 to page me”

Charlie, don’t bother to call back, I’m just needin’ to rant.  Them signs, them damned signs.  They’s driving me nuts.  Signs about women’s rights, abortion or not, don’t shoot the kids, don’t send them immigrant folks back home, don’t this,  don’t that.  I want them to stop.  Just stop for cryin’ out loud.  It don’t do no good.  Only them congress guys can change that crap, and they don’t care about them signs only money and votes.  So put ’em down and go back to work.  Ain’t nobody else cares.  Like I told you one time, kid, carryin’ one of them signs is like pissin’ your pants in an old dark blue suit.  Nobody sees it but you get a good warm feelin’.

Monday, 6/12 Politically Incorrect

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave me a message.  Press 2 to have me  page you.”

.

Your Aunt Marge heard me leaving you that last message about plastic straws and mentally sick guys.  She says it ain’t good to say “loony hospital” but I should call it “mental institution”.  So I will, but my question about a “mental institution ” patient buying a shotgun still stands.

 

Monday, 6/11 Plastic Straws & Guns

“This is Chuck.  Press 1 to leave me a message.  Press 2 to have me  page you.”

.

Hey – what in the hell is going on, kid?   So I gets this email and it says sign this petition to make Subway stop using them plastic straws. Cause they findin’ some big ol’ turtles with a plastic straw in their nose.  And in California that’s a law now.  So why do them politics bullcrappers  worry about crap like this instead of figuring out how do you keep some guy who’s just come out of a loony hospital from buying a shotgun and a case of ammo?   Can you tell me that?
