MY BLOG ABOUT TRAYVON MARTIN
What is up kids.
So normally i try to keep it "light" on this blog and keep my rants to comedy. Except of course when i'm complaining about evil corporations that feast on the souls of the Working Class, sucking as much of their lives as they can 40 hours per week and then sucking out even more. And i do this because who wants to read another blog by another anonymous angry Interwebs poster? Nobody, that's who.
But i feel like i want to weigh in on this Trayvon Martin case, mostly because i for one wasn't surprised AT ALL that George Zimmerman was found "Not Guilty." Not because i agree that what he did was justified, because let's be honest he's a jerk off neighborhood watch guy with a vigilante complex who killed an unarmed teenager in cold blood and isn't getting in trouble for it at all.
But those are the laws that Florida has, and for that reason it makes sense that he gets to go free. Which is crazy because it's not like he's a police officer who was protecting the community and killed what he saw was a viable threat. He's a just another macho a$$hole with a gun, and a racist a$$hole at that. He was recorded saying, "F*cking punks, these a$$holes all get away..." right before he got out of his car (after the cops told him not to) and made sure that Trayvon Martin never took another breath in his life.
So yeah, people want to break it down into a race and/or guns issue and it's easy to see how they want to make that connection. But the real problem here is Florida law, because according to that it was actually correct to not put George Zimmerman behind bars. And not only that, he has already been given his gun back now that the trial is over.
And is it me but if you make a mistake like that you should not be given your gun back? i mean fine, you don't want to put him behind bars because you have this "Stand your Ground" law which basically turns Florida into the Wild West and allows you to kill people and get away with it. But when you kill an unarmed teenager, is that not enough to get your gun taken away? Even if you get into an accident with your car that is just an "accident," it is still called "Careless Driving" and you get a big fine and a few points on your insurance. Killing an unarmed teen with your gun isn't even a fine? That kid at Taco Bell got fired from his job just for licking a bunch of tacos that he had to throw away! But wait, that decision was made by a soulless corporation and that's how they all treat their workers. So that makes sense i guess.
And it sucks that Trayvon Martin is dead, but it sucks even more that under "our" laws George Zimmerman isn't in trouble for anything. It doesn't matter in this country that Zimmerman is not a police officer and in fact ignored the pleas of the police to just stay in his car and instead confronted the situation and an unarmed teenager was murdered. And yes i could also talk about the inconsistencies with our current system of law that puts way more black people in jail then white people. But that is a battle i'll let others fight instead. Probably black people haha.
But if a person who is not a police office is allowed to kill unarmed teenagers what does that say about Florida's gun laws? It says that their laws are as backward as the dumb aholes who live there. And while that might not be everyone who lives in Florida it is enough of them that they are able to pass these laws. And for none of the people to vote these whack job politicians and laws out of their state they are just as guilty as if they had voted for them. Hopefully the people wise up soon though, because those of us that are evolving are having a ton of trouble letting your ignorance stand it's ground these days. Maybe it's time for people with intelligence to become "vigilantes" and take down everyone's stupidity a notch by educating them.
Although speaking of pilots, did everyone see the mistake that San Francisco's KTVU made when listing the "names" of the pilots on their news program? They apparently thought they were the first ones to find out these pilots names, and they sure couldn't wait to post them on television!
"OLD SCHOOL" NONSENSE - Is there anything more disappointing in life then a candy dish that has AWFUL candy? i feel like a candy dish should be a peace offering, a thank you if you will to the people who are nice enough to stop by and visit you. But when i come by and all you have is awful crap like Werther's originals, or GOD FORBID those awful peppermint candy cane mints i really want to punch you in your stupid face. At this point you might as well take a big juicy dump in a candy bowl and let me grab out of that because that's all you're offering me grandpa! It's time to hook up the Hershey kisses and peanut butter cups and M&M's and the Skittles (well, maybe not Skittles in Florida). Hook me up with the kind of candy that makes me go booooooWHIP in my pants! For real, i'm not going to live on this planet forever. And you want me to go out eating gross butterscotch hard candies that come in that awful yellow/gold wrapping? Why do you hate me so much?? And you can judge your candy dish with a simple thought process. If your candy dish doesn't make me think about filling my entire pockets with the entire bowl when no one is looking then you might as well not have one at all. So either get rid of the garbage hard candy and get me some name brand goodness or i will never stop by your desk ever because you are a classless bag of douche.

Fast Food Tips - Sonic has this new "Cheesy Bacon Pretzel Dog" that is a 100% pure beef hot dog covered in crisp bacon, warm cheese, and grilled onions on a brand new pretzel bun. And if you thought i popped for that sea salt caramel gelato i straight up changed my underwear after hearing what a fantastic new fast food item that Sonic has given us. It's so fantastic in fact that i'm going to stick my own personal all beef dog in between that pretzel bun and cover it in cheesy bacon goodness as i happily pound a Sonic Route 44 size Cherry Limeade and jump in the shower covered in goo and shame. And can somebody please explain to me why none of these Fast Food restaurants haven't hired me to endorse their products yet? i make everything sound so delicious!!
And that's it for me today kids. i'm super excited for our 5th episode of "VHS Breakdown" tomorrow where we review the Val Kilmer comedy "Real Genius." i'm a little worried that not as many people remember this movie, but i thought the same thing about "Just One of the Guys" and i was proven seriously wrong. Because apparently everyone remembers that movie and had no problem telling me what movie lines i forgot to put in. "Sometimes you gotta get in there, let some air in, move things around!"
But i think "Real Genius" is a fantastic episode, and i have to say i think Rob and i are just getting better and better at doing this show. Hopefully all of you think the same, but as long as you are watching and/or sharing my show that's good enough for me!
But thanks for reading today's blog. i'll be back this Friday with an all new blog and you can tell me what you think about "Real Genius." And if you haven't yet please please SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube page and i'll be your best friend!! VHS Breakdown Youtube page
