An Abomination

Filed under: California,Society — The Deranged One @ 6:33 pm

An interesting video of a foreclosed home which turned out at one time to be a senior care home. I’ve been in a few senior care homes while at work. I’ve never seen one quite like this.

For starters, I hope that the owners of said home are living in a cardboard box under a freeway overpass. Even that might be too good for them. Second, where was the state. Are you telling me that the facility was inspected and it passed??? Unreal.

By the way, be sure to watch some of Jim’s other videos. Highly entertaining and insightful.

Dumpster Muffin and Other Idiots, Part II

Filed under: News,Society — The Deranged One @ 6:01 pm

Remember the fool tree sitters at UC Berkeley? It seems that one of them didn’t understand the sitting in a tree in Berkeley isn’t quite the same as protesting on the West Bank against the Israelis. He was either in or about a group that was allegedly throwing rocks (where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire) and got smacked in the head with a tear gas canister. His treatment included removal or his frontal lobe and portions of his skull. Will it make a difference? Probably not.

However, I wonder, where does a 38 year old get the financing to be a professional protester and travel the world?

David Wilkerson Urgently Warns Re Earth-Shattering Calamity!!!

Filed under: internet,News,Society — The Deranged One @ 8:19 pm

I was doing some housekeeping here on the site and came across this random link in the control panel: David Wilkerson Urgently Warns Re Earth-Shattering Calamity

Oh no, we’re all going to die!!! I couldn’t help but click the link to see what it had to say so I could get my affairs in order. However, I didn’t make it far. I saw the “endtimes” in the URL then glanced over to “about this site” and saw this tidbit:

End Times Visions and Christian prophecy for the church and for the nations from a servant of God called to speak God’s word (Miriam Franklin): bringing prophecies and prophetic words of revelation, warning of End Times apostasy and lukewarm Christianity, and trying to bring people’s hearts, minds and souls back to the Lord their God.

Oh brother.

Anyway, my interest was piqued, so I followed along and read some of our dear friend’s predictions. Funny, it seemed a bit familiar. And I have difficult understanding how, if New York and the surrounding area is on fire, there are going to be looters in Times Square. Are they immune to fire? Alas, I digress. I did a quick search (I refuse to “google it”) on Mr. Wilkerson to see what was up. Seems like there are just as many nutjobs who are diabolically opposed to him. Here was one of the best. In case you don’t feel like reading the whole article:

His past history is that hes been a tremondous predictor of major market bottoms.

The Chrisitan Church is these days as infested with Satanist as the Jewish Church with its Talmudic Rabbis. The Masons are satanic Cult at the highest levels, and their secret ceromonies are conducted in Hebrew. The Mason imagery and symbology comes from the J-wish Kaballah, or corrupted Judiasm’s satanic texts.

The Mullahs are all corrupt, or they would not be preaching anything except Christ Risen.

Nothing like a couple of fanatics to put a smile on my face.

Facebook Attention Whoredom Part II (or is it Part III?)

Filed under: Humor,internet — The Deranged One @ 2:50 am

This will be my third installment of stupid shit on Facebook. Before anybody thinks I’m obsessed with Facebook, I’m not. I just happened to hear this little gem on the radio today and thought I would look it up when I got home.

Apparently, the faceless purveyors of Facebook are hit or miss when it comes to people posting pictures of themselves breast feeding. Some of the photos are taken down and others are left. Personally, I don’t care and I certainly don’t go out of my way to look for pictures of people feeding their rugrats. But apparently, there’s a whole group who seem obsessed with breastfeeding.

Now don’t think I’m a prude. On the contrary, I could gaze at tits all day. But breastfeeding? So you also force the world to look at pictures of your kids smearing macaroni and cheese all over the place? Boy, that sounds really exciting. Instead, it strikes me as more Facebook Attention Whoredom. Yawn.

And here’s another thought – something which is somewhat dear to me. The women who are whining about their breastfeeding photos haven’t paid a single penny toward Facebook, have they? It’s a service that they use for free. It’s somebody else’s (or in this case, a company’s) website. On occasion, I get somebody bitching because they’ve posted something on one of my websites which is either inappropriate, pisses me off, or both. In any event, I take it down and the inevitable bitching begins. But in the end, it’s my website, bandwidth and money. So if you don’t like it, go start your own website.

Now if only Facebook would allow videos of the actual conception…

Facebook Attention Whoredom

Filed under: Humor,internet — The Deranged One @ 2:05 am

I was looking over things and discovered in ealier rant about Facebook, that I forgot to mention something else that I find totally worthless. XXXX is….. – that’s the box that says “What are you doing right now.” I’m typing on the computer, what the hell do you think? And people try to come up with witty statements that usually fall short. Or they go off the deep end and update us every few minutes. But it’s not real.

I was thinking that perhaps I should try to figure out the internet on cell phone (Verizon – suck ass service) and update Facebook every time I do something.

I am taking a shit.

I am wiping.

I am pissed because I dropped the phone in the toilet while wiping.

You get the idea. A bunch of fucking attention whore drama if you ask me. I have a couple of friends who are off the hook updating that shit. I swear, they spend more time on the damn computer than they do in real life. And if they didn’t spend so much time updating all of the people on Facebook on their daily activities, they’d probably have about 2 extra hours per day to accomplish shit. That’s their thing though.

I would like to see some real shit posted on Facebook – the kind that would bring a smile to my face.

Jane is fantasizing about having anal sex with the cashier at the grocery store even though he is probably only 17.

Dick is trying to think of a way to tell his wife he wants to have a threeway with her and her sister.

Now that would be keeping it real.

I Facebooked Your Mom

Filed under: internet — The Deranged One @ 12:47 am

A few months ago, the missus talked me into setting up a Facebook account. Social networking at it’s finest. What is social networking? Beats me. I do know that our 2nd eldest child had a bunch of drama when she was about 14 on myspace. I haven’t spent much time on myspace. Well, just enough time to see that there are a bunch of teenage girls who have dimly lit photos of themselves blowing kisses into the mirror so they can get a cell phone picture. That and a bunch of shit on their profiles that’ll induce seizures.
Anyway, Facebook. No big deal, or so I thought. The sister in law added me as a friend. And then the deluge started. I had people coming out of the woodwork sending friend request. There were a couple that I didn’t have a clue who they were. I had people I haven’t spoken to in 20 years suddenly wanting to be my friend. Apparently, a few of those people were too dense to figure out that there was a reason 20 years had passed.

And then the request began. Here’s a drink request. Kidnap request. Old toy request. Smelly underwear request. And on and on. Last time I checked, there were about 200 pending requests of one kind or another. I requests to join pet causes. I was quite excited when a friend of mine from work invited me to “feel my boobies” or something like that. Since she has a pretty abundant rack, I was all for it. I was dismayed when I discovered that it was some breast cancer awareness thing.

I guess Facebook is okay, but I don’t spend much time on it. Not like some people. My cousin wanted me to join some cause where everybody is planning to avoid (I think they mean boycott) Facebook for a day because they’re pissed about something or other. Fine with me. It’s just a website, not a way of life.

Merry X-mas

Filed under: California,Humor — Tags: , — The Deranged One @ 3:05 am

As I mentioned the night before Election Day (Election Eve?) I saw a Christmas commercial on the television. I’ve always been upset because it seems that the retailers push Christmas earlier and earlier each year. I have nothing against Christmas, I just get sick and tired of the commercials. This year isn’t looking to be any different.
The night following Election Day, I saw two houses in my neighborhood that not only had their Christmas lights up, but turned on as well. That would be November 5th. I felt a little nauseous when I saw them. It got worse. Last week, I was driving through Sacramento and got stuck in a traffic jam on I-80 thanks to a couple of idiots who decided to play bumper cars. They had pulled out of traffic, but that didn’t matter to all the other idiots on the highway who had to slow down for a glimpse and backed up traffic for a good 2 miles. I often wish that the idiots (I refuse to call them rubberneckers -- a stupid term) would get a good look at an eviscerated driver. Not that I wish evisceration on anybody (that I can say out loud,) but I’d like the idiot in front of me who has to slam on the brakes to take a peak at a wreck to have nightmares for weeks.

Anyway, as I was saying, I was sitting in traffic and there wasn’t anything good on the radio. So I started flipping the dial. No, I no longer have a dial I can flip, but that’s what we always called it. The radio stopped on a station proudly and loudly broadcasting Christmas music. I thought it was a fluke and quickly changed to some obscure AM talk show. A few minutes later, I switched back and sure enough, more Christmas music. Hmm, this isn’t looking good.

Not only that, but last week, we received our first Christmas card of the year. Worse yet, I stopped at a Fry’s store on Monday and they were blasting Christmas music.

What is the world coming to? Pretty soon, are we going to be preparing for Christmas on July 5th? Perhaps the local service clubs can set up a combination fireworks/Christmas tree stand. That would make for some outstanding fires.

As I said, I have nothing against Christmas. If I remember correctly, it’s supposed to be a celebration of the birth of Jesus and not the one working in the kitchen at the local Chinese restaurant. Instead, it’s become a competition to see who can throw the gaudiest looking shit on their house, have the Christmas cards delivered first and sell the most shit that nobody can afford. That’s the real Christmas spirit.

And here’s something that always puts a smile on my face:

2008 SEMA Show

Proposition 8 Fanatics

Filed under: California,Politics — Tags: , — The Deranged One @ 10:19 pm

I haven’t bitched about anything in a bit so I guess it’s that time. And since it’s the eve of the election, what better thing to bitch about than the election?

Don’t get me wrong, I take voting and our government very, very seriously. However, over the past few weeks, my mailbox has begun to strain from the weight of all the junk being mailed by every damn politician I’ve never heard of, I can’t listen to 5 minutes of the radio without hearing some commercial and now, I can’t drive home without hordes of fanatics jumping in front of my truck to scream at me to vote for their cause.

The sheer volume of junk mail has me thoroughly disgusted. I wish I had set aside a box to throw all of the mailers into so I could weigh it at the end of the election. Some of the candidates are even sending multiple pieces of junk on the same day. Now think how many trees they’ve collectively killed in their quest to live off the public teat. Disgusting, isn’t it?

Next up are all of the commercials. This is probably one of the most annoying ones (thankfully I don’t watch a lot of television, but the audio version is played out on radio.) And since it’s so annoying, I want to share it with you. Replay it about 50 times so you can hear Gavin Newsom over and over and over….

I’ve heard that jackass say “whether you like it or not,” about 500,000 times in the past month. First, Newsom is an idiot. I pray that he never is elected to another public office because he’s the type of jackass who likes to hear himself talk. Doesn’t matter what he’s saying (or even if he has anything to say) he goes on and on. I won’t even start on the stupid things he wastes San Francisco residents’ money on. I digress. I’m not going to go into my beliefs on Proposition 8. Basically, if you vote yes, it outlaws same sex marriage in California. Until the inevitable lawsuits begin. If you vote no, it keeps things status quo. Until the inevitable lawsuits begin. See a common theme?

As I said, my beliefs don’t matter. Look at me as a martian from a 50′s movie who just touched down in the Golden State in the midst of the election. You have signs everywhere. Yes on 8. No on 8. Does anybody really think that if they have 2 more signs than the other side, it’ll convince me to vote one way or the other? Apparently, somebody does.

The other day, I was driving home pulling a large load of wood. It was raining and there was a semi flipped over. Traffic was screwed up for obvious reasons. And just beyond the accident, as traffic started to build up speed again, it ground to a halt as some idiot pulled off the highway to run over and stick their sign on the side of the freeway. Oh if only another semi would’ve flattened the stupid shit.

And apparently both factions have decided that if they steal/deface/burn their opponents signs, it’ll help them win. One of my coworkers chased a carload of kids across town after she caught them stealing her Prop 8 sign from her lawn. There’s a really intelligent move. Never mind that she incorrectly told me that voting yes on Prop 8 meant that you were voting to approve same sex marriage. If you’re too stupid to understand what your cause is all about, you shouldn’t be putting a sign on your lawn and you certainly shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

Worse than that, I talked to some guy who is visiting from Utah. He was telling me about a video he saw on YouTube where somebody videotaped somebody else stealing election signs. Yawn. Okay, I guess that might be exciting in Utah. Anyway, he wanted to set up a sting to catch people stealing signs and then wanted to know if you can get into trouble in California for beating somebody up for stealing a sign. It’s a sign, for Christ’s sake. He corrected me and said no, it’s much more than that. Um no. It’s a wooden stake with a piece of paper attached. Are you willing to lose some teeth for a sign that was likely destined for a dumpster after the election? I’m not.

Tonight, I was driving home from the store. Everywhere I looked, there were election signs. They look like the weeds I fight every spring. On the radio, I got to listen to Mayor Gavin for the umpteenth time blabbing on and on. And as I approached a big intersection, there were 75 fanatics protesting on the sidewalk waving their signs, blowing whistles and generally acting like jackasses. Worse than that, they were jumping in front of traffic as it slowed for the signal. Since they had a bunch of kids with them, I must say they were setting a wonderful example for their kids. Yes, their antics really enticed me to vote for their cause.

Thankfully, tomorrow evening the drama will be over. I will be able to listen to old commercials. I won’t have idiots jumping in front of me in traffic. I’ll be able to relax. Well, maybe not. I just saw my first Christmas commercial of the year -- Hallmark. Fucking bastards.
