Life in the big city

My normal Dallas monthly water bill – $90.00, winter, spring, fall – no lawn irrigation. It breaks out to about $30.00 for water, $30.00 for sewer, and $30.00 for garbage pick up (“normal” trash pick up – once per week — bulk pick up (leaves, tree limbs, discarded appliances and furniture, etc.) once per month.)

Now Farmers Branch is a suburb (very small in comparison) adjacent to Dallas’ northwest boundary. Normal trash pick up – twice a week. Bulk pick up – once per week. Water, sewer, garbage bill per month – $30.00.

Hmmm.

Political Correctness gone mad

Political Correctness gone mad

Now why did this guy apologize?

“His delivery of that message was completely insensitive to not only the people in the room, and the things that were going on in our community, and our society, at that point, and that’s what stimulated us looking at it,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivy. Wood will be given a written reprimand, and he has already apologized to his squad. Ivey said that Wood would be sent to sensitivity training as well.

Evidently, there will never be an end to black racism

Remember Jessie Jackson’s twist on racism…”you’re only a racist if you have the power to exercise it.” A statement that is pure bullshit on its face. In the following video clip, the “lady” on the interview panel vomits up this shit as if it were from God, not from a race hustler-agitator-MF like Jesse Jackson.

My definition of racist – You’re only a racist if you agree with Jesse Jackson’s definition of racism.

Gas prices

Thanks to that Kenyan illegally occupying the White House, I now have to spend more on gasoline for just one of our vehicles than I do on groceries. And that’s even though beef has skyrocketed in the past year. I can lay off beef, eat chicken, but I have no substitute for gasoline.

Hello, Ethyl

Back in the day, when regular gas was a quarter, if you got premium, then known as ethyl, it cost 2 cents or 4 cents more, depending on whether you traded at a “major” station or a “minor” station.  Today, as the price of gas is headed toward $5.00, you will pay a premium of 20 to 40 cents depending on the station. Now that’s progress.
