Some people accuse me (correctly) of not being in tune with American pop culture. I feel that the Kardashians are venal, shallow, and uninteresting. I couldn't tell you which rap song is in any place on the hip hop chart. The Housewives of (INSERT LOCATION HERE) are plastic, whining, spoiled, "progressives". 

I feel as if almost all politicians of all parties can be placed in the same category as the Housewives of (INSERT LOCATION HERE).

Die knowing you did everything you ever wanted to do, tried everything you ever wanted to try, felt danger and overcame all fears, and took giant risks most people thought were insane. 
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, leaking oil, on fire and reeking of gun powder, sex and whiskey, and loudly proclaiming: Wow, what a Ride!

  1. I prefer the Zombie stuff.

  3. And you did it all with virtually no Rule 5, which makes it an astounding individual accomplishment. Progressives who stumble by here will not understand the meaning of the term "individual" but they will shake their heads, call us all a bad name, and move on in the feeling of their superiority.

    Congratulations. Kudos well earned.
