1996 Cadillac Seville Found Guilty

With all the furor over the Florida teen who was shot and killed on February 26, 2012, the gun control issue is once again hiked over liberals' heads as to what is really the culprit in this tragedy.

Although I can't figure out what circumstances must exist for a shooting to be blamed on gun control, it nevertheless seems to be what anti-gun folks latch on to in an attempt to further their own argument for stricter gun control laws.

Here's a little cliche that I am very fond of throwing around, not only because it makes reasonable sense - it's the frakking physical truth!!! - "Guns don't kill people.  People kill people."

A gun is an inanimate object.  It makes no decisions for itself nor does it undertake the impossibility of putting itself in a human being's hand.

The same can be said of a vehicle, a kitchen knife, a plastic bag, a zip tie, a rock - all inanimate objects that, in the hands of a human being, can be used to kill someone else.

I'm not here to argue the case for or against Mr. Zimmerman.

But I wish people who lay the lame blame on guns for shooting homicides would grow a brain cell or two before they open their ignorant mouths.

Can I Get a Re-Do on That?

Okay, okay.  I'm gonna eat a little crow here.  Hopefully it goes down a little easier with some refried beans and fajitas . . . .

I will say this for New York and the Jets . . . . what I'm seeing out on the internet . . . they are showing Tim some serious football fan love.

And that makes me smile.

It's All Over

but the agony.

Tim is officially a Jet. There are few other things I can think of that would cause me such pain except maybe having my fingernails plucked out one by one with pliers or using lemon juice to rinse my contact lenses.

How do I reconcile my possibly inappropriate love of Tebow and my abhorrence of New York sports teams?

I'm not a drinker so I'm thinking dangerous amounts of chocolate and/or root beer may be involved.

And the results from a local poll in Denver gives me a little comfort too.

You Should Know

I have a lot of pet peeves, most of them to do with manners and personal hygiene but today's pet peeve is brought to us by none other than Mrs. I-Know-Everything.

Crazy as it may sound, I do have a little experience with my job.  I've been doing the same thing for approximately 22 years.  Suffice it to say, I think I've picked up a few pieces of knowledge along the way.

So when a client starts telling me this needs to be done and that should have been done before this was done and the Judge in that court can sign off on an order in that other court so we can keep moving along with our stuff.  Dontcha know?

No. I don't know.  What I DO know is this: we don't tell the court clerks or the judges what they are going to do and/or when they are gonna do it.

I play very nice with the clerks and their judges because you know why?  Because at the end of the day, those folks can make my job very miserable and very non-productive.  Kind of what Mrs. Know-It-All is doing to my billing hours* today.

John Elway is DOUCHE

I'll be the first to admit that I'm no football genius.  I know enough about the game and players to enjoy it and spend some of my hard earned dollars buying the NFL's overpriced licensed sh*t.

But the situation in Denver with John Elway and Coach Fox and Peyton Manning has me straight up pissed off.

Okay, okay, so Tim Tebow isn't the highest caliber quarterback in the NFL. We all know and acknowledge that.  Tim himself would readily agree with that. But wait a minute! What's that you say? Yes, yes, you make a good point!

NOBODY was the "best" quarterback in their 2nd year in the NFL.  Certainly nobody was ever considered the best quarterback in the NFL after their first 8 games actually ON THE FIELD.

John Elway's ego is splattering its crap all over this deal.  He can NOT stand the fact that Denver Bronco fans (which, let's do some math here . . . there's a whole NEW generation of fans in the bleachers who never even saw Elway play) have some serious love for their crazy popular, inconsistent new quarterback.  Elway doesn't want ANYONE to be successful in Denver and that is the straight up truth.  I hope while he was hanging out with King Douche, Peyton saw what kind of person Elway really is and I hope he saw his future with Denver bright and clear: Elway condescending to Peyton, undermining Peyton's leadership on the field, basically putting it in Peyton's face that it will be Elway's way or nothing.

I think Peyton is a tremendous quarterback.  I also think his day in the sun is done.  Considering his neck repairs, I just want the guy to walk off the field under his own power without crutches or a walker or a wheelchair.  I would hope that he would like to be as healthy as possible and go out on top.  He's still relatively "young" out here in the real world.  He's stinking rich.  He needs to enjoy his good health and his family.  I have serious concerns that he is going to set himself up for a debilitating injury that will decrease his quality of life off the field.  It's disappointing to see him looking so hard for a new team.

At the end of the day, I want Tim Tebow to be happy. He deserves to be with a team that WANTS him and sees the investment of helping him evolve into a great quarterback is worth the time and effort.

AND I see a Super Bowl ring in Tim's future.  But maybe not one in Elway's.
