Folks, I simply don't have time to blog anymore. I'll come back to announce when the first bar-be-ques are, but my main priority now is to get this business going. I'm tired of working to make someone else rich. It's time I worked to make the Zombieslayer family and closest friends rich.

I've told very few people about what the business is, because I'm tired of the jealousy. So many people are neurotic, and I'm simply tired of being around negative people. I am normal, and now have proof of it. ;)

I got a 12.12% (which is really good, the lower the better) on's test. Take the test and read the site. It does a better job of exposing political correctness than I could, so my job is done. I'll let him take the flack and get called racist by sheltered and hypersensitive middle-class white people. Assuming I'm white is racist. Do they assume since I could write well, I must be white? Now, who's the f***** racist?

This country is on its way down, and it's for two reasons. The first is apathy. People just bitch, but don't do anything about it. The other is political correctness.

What I will say will offend people, but I'll say it anyways. I won't check up this site so go ahead and slander all you want. I'm out of here.

Losers are losers by choice. Winners are winners by choice. People who are successful are successful because they worked hard. Competition is a good thing. People who lose all the time need to try harder, and yes, they should be made fun of.

Schools waste too much time trying to be fair to everyone. Screw that. They should be creating leaders. There are two types of people in the world - leaders and followers. Sure, everyone has a little of both in them, but you have to admit that there are natural born leaders. What school does nowadays is try to bring down anyone with leadership tendencies. Because it's not fair that some people are better than others.

So sports are all but banned in school. I used to play tackle football during lunchtime. Not anymore. They use the excuse of injury to ban sports, but in truth, they know that sports have winners and losers, and they fear winners.

In the 90s, everything that is wrong became right and everything that is good became wrong. Kurt Cobain, the ultimate loser, became cool, while Hollywood made fun of anyone who was successful.

Alcoholics are losers. So are drug addicts. I can drink and stop, because I have control. I don't let things control me. I control them.

People who are on the streets begging me for money are losers. They made bad choices and now they have to deal with them. And one thing that pisses me off, is that so many of them came from richer backgrounds than I did. Proof of that is they have nice teeth. I don't. One of the first things I do when I get rich is we get our teeth fixed.

I'm not talking about people with bad health who are homeless. I'm talking about bums who are on the streets because they're either drunks, drug addicts, or give me a f***** break, depressed.

We are proof that America is still the land of opportunity. It is a good country. And I'm tired of hearing people complain how unfair it is. Sure, it's unfair. Nothing is fair. Deal with it. Grow the f*** up and stop complaining. If it's so bad, leave. Then you will see how good you have it here.

I've been a foreign exchange student. I've also spent a lot of time overseas. I strongly suggest that before you slam America, you leave it for a year at a time. Only then will you figure out how good we have it.

So stop complaining, and start using the gifts that God gave you. You are gifted, and you are blessed. When you figure that out, you will become successful at anything you want to be successful in. And if someone wants to bring you down, if someone is jealous of you, if someone ever says "you can't," ditch them. Lose them. Never talk to them again. You don't need negativity in your life.

I don't either. As cold as this is, my wife and I cut out over two dozen people the past year. We decided to only associate with winners.

As always, wishing you all the best. I'll be back, but if I'm going to maintain a good blog, I need to get my beauty sleep, which I'm not getting right now doing two full-time jobs, one of which I don't get paid for yet. Once I start getting paid for the other job, I could ditch this one and have time for blogging, because blogging to me is a lot of fun.

The Vampire Bat and the Illinois Cow and a bonus joke

I've decided that instead of something serious, I'd like to start this week off with something funny. Here are a few jokes for you. Enjoy...

The vampire bat

A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep. Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it.

He told them to knock it off and let him get some sleep but they persisted until finally he gave in.

"OK, follow me," he said and flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him. Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest full of trees. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him.

"Now, do you see that tree over there?" he asked.

"Yes, yes, yes!" the bats all screamed in a frenzy.

"Good," said the first bat, "Because I didn't."

The Illinois Cow

The only cow in a small Kentucky town stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow just across the state line in Illinois for $200.

They brought the cow from Illinois and the cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all of the time, and the people were very happy.

They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow to produce more cows like it. They would never have to worry about their milk supply again.

They bought the bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest. The people were very upset and decided to ask the Vet, who was very wise, what to do.

They told the Vet what was happening. "Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An attempt from the side, she walks away to the other side."

The Vet thought about this for a minute and asked, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Illinois?"

The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned where they bought the cow. "You are truly a wise Vet," they said. "How did you know we got the cow in Illinois?"

The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye, "My wife is from Illinois."

And now for your bonus joke

Two tourists were driving through Wales.

At Llanhyfryddawelllehynafolybaarcudprindanfygythiadtrienusyrhafnauole they stopped for lunch and one tourist asked the waitress, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are... very slowly?"

The girl leaned over and said, "Burrr -gurrr-Kiing.

Tips on losing weight and a Must Read

Tips on losing weight

I used to work for a gym chain here in California. I won't say the name because I'm not authorized to speak for them. I was a Certified Fitness Counselor, and I know a little bit about losing weight.

If anyone is interested, I'll share a few tips.

Do not eat right before bed. In bed, you sleep. Your metabolism slows down and your body rests. If you eat a lot before bed, you will gain weight. It's a trick people who want to gain weight do. I used to eat a milkshake with an egg and a can of beer in high school right before I went to bed and it helped me bulk up. So if you want to lose weight, don't do that.

Walk, don't nap after a big meal. This will help your metabolism. If you nap, your metabolism will slow down. If you walk, your metabolism will go up.

Stop snacking on junk food. But do snack. Suggestions? Carrots, celery (without dressing unless it's a vinegrette, which are good fats), apples, pears, grapes. Notice what those all have in common?

Do not skip breakfast!!! You will slow your metabolism down when you skip breakfast.

Chew your food. Give your digestive system time to do its job.

My wife and I took a Caribbean cruise in '03. The ship has seven stories. One thing we noticed was that obese folks took the elevator and slimmer folks took the stairs. No coincidence there. So take the stairs, and walk or ride your bike for milk or beer runs, a quick stop to drop off your mail, the video store, etc. Drive less, walk or ride your bike more. Your body will love you for it.

And now, the secret formula - calories in vs calories out. Yes, it's that simple. The thing is, we all burn at different rates. So you want to do things that speed up your metabolism. Eating Bon Bons while watching soaps slows down your metabolism. Rigorous exercise speeds it up.

I strongly suggest to both men and women boxing and wrestling. Yes, women can wrestle. You might find it quite fun. Both boxing and wrestling are some of the toughest exercises you can do. That's why that Tai Bo guy's a multi-millionaire. It works. It would suck as a martial art, but the women who do Tai Bo for awhile are all in great shape.

You have to change your diet too. Cut down on crap calories. I don't think I need to explain to anyone what crap calories are. I'm pretty sure we all know what I'm talking about.

Atkins will kill you. Don't do that. Just stop going to fast food places, eat more fish, eat less chips and ice cream, and do some exercise that will work up a sweat.

Oh, almost forgot to mention. I've found that people who are more likely to stick with an exercise regimen are ones who go with a friend. You need one that's not lazy, but one who will nag you until you get out of bed and join him or her.

So good luck. Any questions, let me know. Yes, I am certified too, so I may not know as much as someone with a degree in it, but I can at least share some tips. I've been in pretty good shape all my life, so I speak from experience too.

The Must Read

Neal wrote a superb post on the State of the Union. Definitely read it. I especially love this quote he found:
I have a quote from a Lord Macaulay from back in 1857. It goes as follows:
The average age of the world’s greatest democratic nations has been 200 years. Each has been through the following sequence.
From bondage to spiritual faith.
From faith to great courage.
From courage to liberty.
From liberty to abundance.
From abundance to complacency.
From complacency to selfishness.
From selfishness to apathy.
From apathy to dependency.
And from dependency back again into bondage.

That's scary, because you can see exactly where we're at now in that timeline.

Your opinion is needed

One thing that really bothers me about some people is they want to silence any opposition to their beliefs. It happens with the Right, calling anyone to the Left of them "communists." It happens with the Left, calling anyone who disagrees with them "fascists." It happens with moderates calling anyone who disagrees with them "extremists." It especially happens with the P.C. types. I've done half a dozen posts already slamming the P.C. crowd, so I won't waste any more words on them in this post, for you already know how I feel about political correctness.

I stand on the Right side of the spectrum. I believe in less government, and believe people should make their own choices on personal matters. I fully welcome people to disagree with me, for I understand there needs to be opposition. No matter how good of a person you are and how good your intentions are, too much power with no opposition always leads to dictatorship. If a dictatorship is on the Left or the Right, it's still a dictatorship, and it's still going to suck.

One word of advice, stay positive. People get nowhere by whining. Even if you're right, and have a whiny tone to what you're saying, people will just turn away without hearing what you're saying. The environmental movement loses a lot of people because of their "sky is falling" tactics. I don't want to hear that, even if I agree with them on some issues.

One of the Kennedy sons, forgot if it was John Jr. or Robert Jr., saved several rivers back east by staying positive and saying that the river will clean out itself if companies stopped dumping in them. After suing some companies to stop dumping into the rivers, they cleaned up themselves and now you can fish in them again (and safely eat the fish).

Stay civil too. Anyone who calls me words, I'm just going to shut them out. They may have had something intelligent to say too. I don't care. Most people are like me in that respect.

And be persistent. One reason so many people hated Al Gore is because he was spineless. He seemed to get his political opinion by licking his thumb, sticking it in the air, and seeing which way the wind was blowing. People don't respect that, even if he was right on some issues. I initially hated him for who he married, but that's another post.

One thing that seriously bothers me about the current Administration is their attitude of "if you're not with me, you're against me." That's a very paranoid attitude, and we all know where paranoia leads.

So keep talking. If you're positive, civil, and persistent, you'll have listeners.

My wife buys homemade natural soap from some Hippie lady at the Chico Farmer's Market. They cost $3 a bar, and we love them. They build up a real nice lather and surprisingly rinse off quite well. They feel like they don't leave behind a residue like soap you buy at a store does. I don't know if that's psychosomatic, or if these soaps really are better.

I forgot to bring a bar down to the Bay Area, so I had to buy some soap from the store. I picked up some glycerin soap. It doesn't really lather and rinses off almost instantly. I kind of like it though, but to truly test it, I should do a heavy work out and see if I still stink afterwards.

Do you believe soap makes a difference or do you think they're all the same? What soap do you use?

Absolutely horrible

For the record, I neither had money on the game nor am I a Seahawks fan. But what I watched was the worst officiated game I've ever seen, and I've watched, coached, and played plenty of football games on a variety of levels. So I don't say these words lightly.

Hasselback makes a superb tackle. And the referees tack on a fifteen yard penalty for an illegal block done by him. Huh?

Hasselback throws a TD and it gets pulled back for offensive pass interference. They touched each other. There should have been no penalty there.

Hasselback throws a deep pass and it gets called back for offensive holding. Even the announcers said that was a lousy call

Also, I noticed a Steelers' off-sides that wasn't called and even Rothlesburger's TD was questionable. All the errors went on the side of the Steelers. If I find out later on that the referees get fired for having money on the Steelers, I wouldn't be surprised.

Car crashes, time issues, and shouts out

Someone crashed again

It never fails. Almost every time it rains, someone tailgates and crashes, making the rest of us have to drive bumper to bumper in the rain. Idiots.

So I started thinking, which cities have the worst drivers? New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Note that all four cities have the most strict gun laws in the country. Coincidence? Probably not.

Believe me, I'm aware that I'm slipping

Each week, I'll try to include "must reads." I used to do links to other blog posts more often, but now I have a time issue. Now that I got this new gig going on the side, I'm having less time to blog and it sucks. I really wish I had more time to blog, but realistically, I don't, until I'm in a position to give up the job with a steady paycheck. I don't expect that to happen though for at least six months.

So until then, bear with me. I used to do daily posts, now I'm lucky if I could do posts four times a week. This is not intentional. I used to see more movies too and that's why you rarely see a movie review on this blog anymore. I can't remember the last time I had a hot babe post and my Fifth Amendment post was months ago. I haven't even written my Sixth Amendment post yet.

And now, "must reads"

You know how much I'm into all things American Indian. It was a pleasant surprise to read a wonderful, but sad article about a Dying breed on Okie's blog. You really should read this post. It's definitely one of my favorite posts so far this year.

You also know how much I enjoy Laura's blog, even though she and I are complete opposites on the political spectrum. I always try to make a point to read a different opinion than mine just to keep me honest. At worst, it will cement why I think the way I do. At best, it will open me to new ideas.

Feminism has until recently left a bad taste in my mouth. I had an ex who was a true Feminazi. Her last words to me were "I hate men! I hate men!" before I hung up the phone and told her that I'm dead to her so don't even bother trying to contact me again.

A lot of other girls I've known from college called themselves "feminists," blamed men for all their failures, then asked me to open a jar for them or change their tire. What the !@#$%^&?

I've known some kind feminists as well who did love men, but the evil feminists, even though they may be a minority of feminists, are more vocal and do a tremendous amount of damage to the whole feminist movement.

Well, Laura definitely did her research. If you have time, read the comments section, for she and I did a lot of debating in half of the posts. I posted these in order.

I give Laura an A for these posts, not only for effort, but because they're well-written so even a layman like me could understand them. Enjoy.

On Feminism

Liberal Feminism

Radical Feminist Theory

Marxist Feminism

Post-Structural Feminism

And don't worry. Even though I enjoyed all these Feminists posts, I'm still the same, shallow guy who likes guns, beer and hoo hoos. However, if some guy in a bar came up to me and started talking about Radical Feminists vs Post-Structural Feminists, I'll know exactly what he's talking about.

Go Seahawks!

Lastly, let's hope Thom's team wins. I'll always have a soft spot for Mike Holgrem, for he brought the Packers yet another Lombardi trophy.
