If you are familiar with Alabama, you will notice that many good things, and one bad thing has been left out.
Good things from Alabama.
Joe Louis, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Bo Jackson, Carl Lewis, Jim Nabors (aka, Gomer Pyle), Hank Williams Sr., 3 of the original Temptations (Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin), Dianna Ross, Nat King Cole, and many others.
I am proud to say that Eddie and Paul were very good friends.
Don’t forget that the State of Alabama rules college football. The national champion has been Auburn or Alabama for 4 out of the last 5 years. It should be 5 out of 5, but Auburn came up 13 seconds short last January in Pasadena. But if there is any consolation, keep in mind that the quarterback who led Florida State to the win on their last drive, Jameis Winston, is from Bessemer, Alabama.
The only bad thing about Alabama is segregation. Many believe this is where it originated.
George Wallace has taken the rap for this, but this is not true. Wallace was not a racist. He was a politician, and a good one. He just used racism to further his political career. The real racist behind the 1963 Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham was the Commissioner of Public Safety, Bull Connor. In a speech Connor made, he said, word for word, “You’ve got to keep the White and the Black separate!” The idiot couldn’t even speak English correctly. Watch the video. You can hear this speech at the beginning of the video.
Bull Connor is the one who ordered the police to attack Afro Americans with the fire hoses. It is accurate to say that he was the sole individual who was responsible for the Civil Rights Movement in Birminghham. Bull Connor not only hated Afro Americans. He hated everybody who knew where they came from.
Let me expand on what I just said – BULL CONNOR HATED EVERYBODY, PERIOD. I think the man even hated himself. He also hated Jews and Italians, and probably more than he hated Afro Americans. He didn’t start any crap with the Jews, because they were smart, and they had the money to fight back. He didn’t mess with the Italians, for obvious reasons. I suppose he did not want his body to wash up from the bottom of the Warrior River.
There was one time when Mr. Connor attacked the Italians. I remember very clearly. Bull Connor ordered the Ku Klux Klan to burn a cross in my Great Grandmother’s front yard. The reason was because she owned a grocery store in Bessemer, Alabama. Being an immigrant from Sicily, Mr. Connor wanted her OUT. What a turd!
When you think of Alabama, think of the good things
Alabama has contributed many good things to society. Don’t judge Alabama by the one bad thing the state is associated with. Better yet, don’t judge the State of Alabama because of one individual who hated everyone, including himself.
When the Chargers and Cardinals kick off Monday night, Arizona may be without their star running back, Andre Ellington. A foot injury has made the running back from Clemson questionable.
Starting in his place could be Johnathan Dwyer, the fourth year man from Georgia Tech. This could lead to the beginning of a superstar’s career. Stranger things have happened. This time next week, the Arizona Cardinal fans may be asking the question, “Andre WHO?”
Inside Edition host, Deborah Norville, is taking the passing of Joan Rivers very hard. Since the passing of the comedy legend yesterday, she has not even been there to host her show. One would think that Debotah Norville and Joan Rivers were very close relatives.
Jimmy Fallon is grieving also, but at least he showed up last night to host the Tonight Show.
The entertainment world lost a great one yesterday. Like so many heart-broken people, I am sad to say that Joan Rivers passed away at the age of 81. Miss Rivers was one of the greatest woman comedians ever.
Joan Rivers made a lot of people laugh, and brought joy and happiness to many. In addition, the legend had many philosophies about life. If we could learn from some of these, we could all live life to its fullest.
Miss Rivers just appeared in public, went on stage and did what came natural to her. Her sharp tongued humor was her trademark, and will never be forgotten. Miss Rivers could be put into any situation, and you would think that she had been accustomed to it her entire life.
When asked once in an interview to describe what she does, she responded by saying that she really didn’t have a job. She said that all she did, and all she wanted to do was make people happy. And she sure did that.
Joan Rivers was a great comedian, but she also involved herself in other interests. Over a period of 40 years, she was the author of 10 books. She had a writing style that could rival some of the best authors. She was also a producer and business leader. Miss Rivers also had numerous endorsements. She was a frequent guest on QVC.
Miss Rivers taught us that there is nothing wrong with laughing at ourselves. It should be only natural. In doing so, it shows that we are human, and comfortable with who we are. Miss Rivers was definitely comfortable with who she was. Above, she is pictured on the Tonight Show, laughing so hard while trying to tell a joke, that she could not get the joke out.
Joan Rivers was a comedy sensation for over 5 decades. Pictured here are the two greatest woman comedians of all time. She is with Lucille Ball, and I’m sure we all know Lucy. Wow, some of the things that are going on up there now are priceless!
Miss Rivers was a very out spoken woman, and she had every right to be. There was one moment when CNN tried to exploit her on national television. In an interview with CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield, Joan Rivers walked out during a heated argument in which the anchor called her “mean.” “You are not the one to interview a person who does humor – Sorry!” I admired her when she did this. The woman loved who she was, and was not about to allow anyone too discredit her – WELL DONE MISS RIVERS!
Miss Rivers did something that most great entertainers could not do. She passed away while she was still on top. She lived every day like it was the most important day in her life.
Miss Rivers was happy with herself, and with who she was. Also, she made other people happy with themselves, just to be around her.
It was often said that her first love, and the love of her life was her husband, film and television produce Edgar Rosenberg. Miss Rivers was a frequent celebrity guest on The Hollywood Squares, a TV game show hosted by Peter Marshall, which aired from 1965 to 1982. She is pictured above as a guest on the show, probably talking about her beloved Edgar, which she did so many times.
This is a very sad day in the entertainment world.
The son of Ponzi king Bernard Madoff is dead at the age of 48 from a rare form of cancer. Andrew Madoff is the one who turned his father in to authorities after he was swindled, like so many other people. In an interview with 60 Minutes, Andrew said that what his father did “is unforgiveable”, and he would “never speak to him again”.
Bernie Madoff is serving a 150 year prison sentence in North Carolina. I don’t suppose the Federal Bureau of Prisons will allow him a furlough to attend his son’s funeral?
If you want to smoke, chew or dip, CVS Pharmacy no longer wants your money.
A company that promotes health care decides to stop selling tobacco products. Perhaps they think this is a conflict of interest.
But there is another conflict of interest. Tobacco products, as we all know, are bad for your health. So is obesity, and being overweight. So, why do health food stores sell products that make you gain weight?
Former Oregon Ducks tight end Colt Lyerla claims that a booster promised him a house and a car if he signed with the Ducks. He also claims the booster welched.
I think there is more to this story. Perhaps the booster promised him a house and car, in exchange for a National Championship. Of course, everyone knows that Auburn took care of this. To be even more specific, it was Auburn running back, Michael Dyer who was responsible for Auburn’s win. In a tied game, during the closing minutes, Dyer kept running when he and the referee were the only two people in Glendale, AZ who knew his knee never hit the ground.
If my hunch is correct, then this former tight end shouldn’t blame the booster. He should blame Michael Dyer.
This was after testing Positive for Amphetamines. I’ve heard of a soft nose – A player who tries to find the quickest way to get on the 90 day disable list. If he can’t do it one way, he’ll do it another. Some of these guys just don’t want to play. And who could blame them? I would be delighted if I didn’t have to get my ass busted for four weeks.
This stuff can be purchased at the grocery store, and only costs about a dollar. It will be the best money you ever spend.
This will do it every time. But take two precautions:
First, stay home. Don’t go anywhere. The reasons are obvious, and you know what they are.
Stay close to the bathroom. Otherwise, you’re in big trouble.
Don’t just sit around waiting for it to hit. It takes about two to four hours. If you sit around waiting for something to happen, it’s like watching grass grow. Do something to occupy your mind. When the time comes, you’ll know it. Get ready to run, and run fast.
Once it hits, it hits big. Then, it is over, and you are home free.
As a last resort, you could sit on the toilet for two hours with your iPad.
Finally, if you want to take a trip, and if you want to fly, you may not need a jet.
Most of the stuff I write here is funny, weird and crazy. This is going to be serious, and hopefully, inspiring to the newlyweds.
First of all, if the family of these newlyweds, or anyone else think I am writing this to exploit this couple, just keep reading. You are about to discover that this is the farthest thing from the truth.
Here is the wedding picture of my parents, taken almost 60 years ago.
Behind my Mother are her parents, and behind my Father are his parents. Naturally, I was not born when this picture was taken. Young couples did things a little different then. However, I think it is accurate to say that I understand the situation that the bride is going through, and, I lived through it. Just like the young bride in the video, my Mother saw her soul mate struck with a disability before their wedding. But if their situation is anything like that of my parents, it will not be a tragedy very long.
In the video, the bride made the statement, “We can still have a good life, and we can still enjoy each other.” All I can say to her is, “MEAN WHAT YOU SAY, AND STAND BY WHAT YOU SAY. If you ever have any doubts about your decision, perhaps it would help you to talk to my Mother. She would tell you that you have a lot to look forward to.”
If the fate of this couple is anything like that of my parents, they will have a good life together. I was fortunate to see my parents celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary ten years ago. My Father passed away in June, 2005 at the age of 74. My Mother is 78, and still going strong. I try to spend at least one night each week at her house.
If someone were to ask my Mother, “Do you ever regret marrying a man who was disabled?”, I will bet my life that her answer will be:
NOT A CHANCE!
You must watch this inspiring video.
Oh, by the way, my Dad is the one who taught me how to play golf.
Think about HELL for a moment. Don’t think of it as a place where there is fire. Think of it as a place where you have no freedom, and a lot of fear.
You are in a room, and you are a prisoner. Your fear will not let you do the things you want to do. Your fear will also make you do the things you don’t want to do. The things that you want to do are pleasant. The things that you don’t want to do are unpleasant.
This room is HELL.
I just said you are in a room, and you are a prisoner. I didn’t say you were locked in this room. I also didn’t say that anyone was holding you as a prisoner.
Hell has a door. This door is unlocked. If you open this door and leave, no one is going to stop you. No one is going to hurt you. No one is going to come after you and make you come back. You are free to leave anytime you want.
The meaning of colors is one of the strangest things you can imagine. A color can be both bad and good. Let’s look at three colors: RED, WHITE and BLACK. (I did this just in case you are color blind.)
BAD: Red is the color to signify that a business is losing money Your Business is In the RED.
GOOD: Red is the color of love. It represents sex. If your girlfriend is wearing red, chances are, she is horny.
BAD: A beginner in Karate wears a white belt. This means, if he gets into a fight, he will get his ass whipped. If a woman double crosses you, you may have to remind her that she is not so lily white. And of course, we must not forget about those people who tell those little white lies.
GOOD: In the movies, the good guys wear the white hats. A bride wears white to signify that she is pure. I don’t know if this is good or bad.
BAD: On the other hand, the bad guys in the movies wear the black hats. If someone does not want you in their fraternity, lodge or club, they will blackball you. One of the most vicious villains ever, Dracula, wore black.
GOOD: Black is the symbol of authority, power, mastery and skill. A guy who has mastered the art of Karate wears a black belt. If he gets into a fight, the other guy will get his ass whipped. Have you ever been to a black tie affair. This is real classy – for the rich, famous and well-to-do. Dracula may have been a villain, but priests are good guys. Priests wear black to signify their humility, obedience and total surrender. Remember, Real Men Wear Black. Finally, if you are the owner of a business, you will definitely want to operate in the black.
Let’s do one more color.
BAD: Pink is a very feminine color, which is good. If a man wears pink, others might think he is gay, which is bad.
GOOD: Pink can represent feeling good. You’re in the Pink.
Is this article accurate? Well, this might be considered a GREY AREA.
It was noticed during his appearance on “America’s Got Talent.” If I had just broken up with someone who wanted desperately to get rid of me, I wouldn’t wear my wedding ring either. This would only serve as a grim reminder.
A few weeks ago, I was watching an old movie with a friend on TCM. The movie was, The Pride of the Yankees, starring Gary Cooper. This movie portrayed the life of one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Lou Gehrig.
When Gary Cooper made the famous speech about being the . . .luckiest man on the face of the earth. . ., my friend asked me, “How did he die?” My answer to her question was, “He died from Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
I have a little nephew who is almost two years old. Ever since this kid was born, he has never liked me. I don’t know why, but he screamed at the top of his lungs every time he saw me. I don’t think he was afraid of me. He just didn’t like me.
One day, while the whole family was gathered together, I decided to do an experiment. When I saw him, I gave him a giant Hershey’s Chocolate Bar.
Now, every time he gets his hands on my brother’s smart phone, he calls me and says, “Hey Charlie!”
All of a sudden, he is crazy about me. Do you think this kid has a future in politics?
President Obama thinks so. Warren Buffett doesn’t like paying taxes. So do millions of other people. This doesn’t mean they hate America. Obama, if you’re really pissed off, why don’t you start eating Big Macs instead Whoppers.
USC cornerback Josh Shaw was indefinitely suspended for lying to his coaches. He said he sprained his ankle while trying to save his drowning nephew. If this guy is trying to make it in pro football, he is off to a good start. He shows that he has the mentality for a professional athlete, according to the late, great voice of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Bob Prince.
Mr. Prince once defined a soft nose while broadcasting a baseball game on National TV. He defined it as:
A player who tries to find the quickest way to get on the 90 day disable list.
This is out of character for Charter. I never have a problem with their internet service. Charter should thank AT&T U-verse for having me as a customer. With Charter, I have never had outages averaging eight hours a day.
Is the marriage worth saving for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon?
Mariah does not want a marriage counselor. She is afraid it would get out that the marriage was in trouble. Well, darling, let me enlighten you. It’s already out. You and Nick have been the hottest searches on Google this week.
Mariah and Nick are both heart broken.
Mariah and Nick still love each other.
Mariah does not think a counselor would understand their marriage.
Mariah is playing mental games with Nick.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon will live by B S and will be eventually done in by B S.
Face it. All of this is B S. Where there’s B S, there’s more B S. B S is what got the marriage in trouble.
Do Mariah and Nick want more B S?
There are two choices. Save the marriage, and there will be more B S. End the marriage, and,
About a week ago, on Candid Camera, a lady was stopping people on the street and asking to use their smart phones. Then she took a picture of herself, gave the smart phone back to the owner, and left. This blew everyone’s mind.
If Peter Funt had used Kim Kardashian in this segment, without her makeup, it would have been interesting to see if the people would have recognized her.
If Inmates were to custom design a prison, the first plan would be a built-in internet cafe. It would have to serve refreshments – particularly beer and hard liquor. This way, the inmates can make deals online while serving time, and get smashed while doing it.
Their gun rights should never have been revoked in the first place. Their crimes had nothing to do with having a gun and shooting someone. But they did use a weapon in their crimes. However, revoking their rights to use this weapon could present a problem, and it would be brutal, to say the least. The weapon I am referring to is the one between their legs.
People who browse the internet obviously enjoy it. However, if they learn about the coding that makes the internet work, they probably would not know as much about the internet, and would not enjoy it as much. Studying the internet is like studying Scripture. The more you think you know, the less you really do know.
Martha Dreher, the pissed off baby sitter for two girls, set their room on fire. But did she do anything to the girls? If not, maybe the girls should have tied her up and burned her at the stake. Isn’t this what kids generally do to an obnoxious baby sitter?
Taylor Swift is in hot water. They are mad at her because they think she is “Portraying Black Stereotypes”. But they are really mad at her because she can dance. Women don’t like competition. She has more moves than ex-lax.
The Electric Chair is cruel and unusual punishment. But, is lethal injection gentle and usual punishment?
The death row inmates would rather be drugged to death instead of electrocuted. I assume these guys are tough, and are not afraid to die. Why should it matter to them how they die. Ten minutes later, they will not know the difference anyway.
I can see this sort of thing happening in the 60,s but not today. Catholics like to have fun. They are not as strict as the other religions. They like to drink. They like to smoke. They like to have fun. They also like to screw. All she has to do is become a Catholic, tell it to a priest in confession, and all should be forgotten.
It is very fortunate for most of the population that there is no such thing as a debtor prison. If there was, eighty percent of the population would be locked up. At the golf course, I would not have to wait over an hour before teeing off.
Drake wants to see Rihanna again. Does he miss her, or does he miss the intimacy? (Intimacy is just a nicer word than sex.) Does he really love her, or is he just horny? Will she give in to him. 5 will get you 10, the answer is, YES.
If you’re waiting on the Federal Government for economic growth, it’s going to be a long wait. We’re still waiting. Where have you been for the last 40 years. No one has ever been able to stimulate economic growth. What makes people think the Fed can do it now? You can trust the Feds to keep things the way they are.
A lady in Idaho literally got lit up. I get lit up occasionally. This happens to me some Saturdays during the Fall. Every time I go to a college football game, I get lit up. If I didn’t, I would be uncivilized.
