From Wall Street to the street: A cabdriver’s tale
This New Year’s eve will be the fourth time I have been unemployed. In this story a cabdriver speaks about how Wall Street isn’t what it used to be. He’s gone from looking for work to hopefully getting a hookup from someone who rides their cab.
So my New Year’s resolution is to just wait for a hookup. And if that hookup does not come I’m going to resort to Plan X, Y,Z.
Recently Grover Mannings notified me that Psy Gangnam Style video has surpassed Justin Beiber’s Baby video as the most viewed all time video on YouTube. I’m not a big fan of this guy, because it is poor dancing which adds to the stereotype of Asian-Americans. (even though this is like the biggest dance craze now)
So the other day I was checking out YouTube and found this audition of Jason Viet Tien’s audition for the UK X-Factor. He comes off a bit dorky, but cute and not overtly creepy. (not to mention a standing ovation audition)
Here is a fond memory of yesteryear of the man who started it all. William Hung
In this New York Times article A Tragedy of Silence published Saturday after the Newton, Connecticut shooting. Americans remain equally divided.
The author Blow asks When, and how, will this end? In fact, will it ever end?
I don’t think it will ever end. Gun control and fiscal cliff seem like unrelated problems but they are actually similar. It all is part of American mentality. And every time I recite the last line of US Army Soldier’s Creed “I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.” I am reminded of this. One of the fundamental problems with the American way of life is the sense of entitlement. Everyone believes they are owed something but are unwilling to give up anything they are receiving or have. They know spending cuts and more taxes are imminent however the only right solution are the programs that affect them are not cut and their taxes are not raised.
I agree that there should be a ban on assault weapons with the exception of police and military but half of America does not agree with me. A Gallup poll conducted showed Americans are either totally satisfied (50%) or dissatisfied (42%) with gun control.
Likewise with gun control, gun lobbyists pour millions into the hands of politicians because they believe so strongly in their right to bear arms they are unwilling to give him any rights they have. Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America, blamed the shooting on laws that don’t allow school personnel to be armed. “Gun control supporters have the blood of little children on their hands. Federal and state laws combined to ensure that no teacher, no administrator, no adult had a gun at the Newtown school where the children were murdered. This tragedy underscores the urgency of getting rid of gun bans in school zones.”

There is a New York Post front cover photo which was taken by the photographer which sparked national outrage. And everyone is asking why no one did anything to help him before the oncoming train struck and killed him. My mother asked that the other night while watching the evening news.
I reminded my mother what she always tells me. Don’t start trouble my son let people do their own thing. If there is a crime happening let it go. “Mom, they did what you always tell me to do….” She was then silent.
With that said here is a link to a Dick memory of yesteryear.
