Brain Salad Surgery

Hey kid! You do know that it looks like you’ve got a load of poop in your pants don’t you? Either pull them up or go change them. Oh and by the way, that nose ring doesn’t go with those shoes. And you wonder why you can’t find a job. Over the last few years I’ve hired 6 or 7 kids ranging from 18 to about 25 years old. The job is easy enough. Clean up around the shop and wash equipment like bulldozers, excavators and dump trucks. Starting pay - $13.00 per hour with full benefits. Medical, vacation, matching 401K, profit sharing, etc. Lots of opportunity to learn and move up the ladder. Some lasted a few months, some a few weeks. All quit or got fired. Quit because the job was “to hard”. Or fired for crap like (and this was a common theme for several of them), sitting in equipment listening to the radio, yakking’ on their cell phone and texting. After being told several times that it is unacceptable. You almost have to be a FBI code breaker to figure out some of the stuff on their applications.

Lets see, every stupid form the feds, states, counties and cities use is published in what, 20, 30 languages? At what cost? Need a translator, get a friend to help. Or better yet, learn the language of the country you “choose” to live in. Hell, I’m also paying for all kinds of programs that will teach your ass for free.

Universal healthcare? Shit, we already have it. Anyone in the whole damn universe can come here and get the best health care “my” money can buy.

And the gang-bangers. Last week our local constables raided a gang safe house. They made seven arrest and confiscated one rifle. Please Mr. Chief-O- Police. With a Compensation Package of $300,000 per year, you should spend some of “my” money at Liars University. No cash? No drugs? No handguns? A safe house with “one” rifle? I’ll say it right now: “Your full of shit”. Are you going to pay these same seven “gang bangers” $100 to get “arrested” in your next “raid”? One press release. No follow up. No nothing. Just how stupid do you think the people are that flush money down the toilet you call a salary are? I smell a rat here.

How about the head of the State of Calif. Consumer Services Agency. She was taking $15,000 a pop for “speaking fees” from companies doing business with the state. Illegal as hell. Sure, she resigned last week after she got caught. But I want her and the bastards that paid her all in prison. I wonder if anyone cares what these people are doing? As long as they’re not at my house arresting me mentality. What a fucking country of wussies.

I'm with ya...too many of the kids today have no work ethic...but it's not just them...their parents have none either.

I'm sick of paying for these people to deliver their babies here, making them anchor babies, well the anchor is around my neck and I'm drowning. I can't even afford to get sick...cuz I have to pay for them with my "health care" dollars. Shit...don't get me started. I'll die younger than everyone in my family because of my life choices...with no health care other than what medicare will provide in a few years...which is being cut ever what the hell...why should I care about a few illegals? Because those bastards are the ones who are getting what is left of my health care dollar, they are the ones who are causing the politicians to say the system is too big, so now we are going to cut your benefits. It wouldn't be if they would get rid of the illegals getting MY (and your) benefits.

I get so pissed, I can hardly think evidenced by that rant I just speilled off....

Ann said...

Sounds like you hit a nerve with Chessie. :)

I think this shit happens everywhere, but I still reserve the right to rag on the People's Republic of California. ;)

BTW...can Big D have a job? ;)

That was good. Stay good and mad. Stay pissed. Apathy will be the death of us all.

WillyD!! I was trying to forget about all of this for one dirty bastard!

For being a good guy, who looks like a bad's getting really hard for me to keep myself under wraps. I took the route of "being ignorant" just to save's not working.

Now all I want to do is grab people by the back of the hair and kick 'em in the ass really hard over and over and over and over.....

Thanks for the post...I have decided that ignorance is bliss but Alice told me to pack my bags because I was getting on her nerves in wonderland. Back to reality.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Thanks for the cheerie post. I needed a smile today! LOL!

You know what, I'd be happy for a job like that right now, as long as they didn't mind that I move a little slow because of my leg. That pay and bennies for an entry-level job is pretty damned good I think. You're right; there's no pride anymore.

My first job was an after-school gig at a local laundry/dry cleaners. Sweep up, empty all the trash, assist the maintenance mechanic, etc. I was the only kid they ever had that lasted long enough to get a uniform shirt. The money was shit, but the maintenance guy was a hot shit and we had some good times back then.

In my last job my boss was the biggest waste of skin I've ever known - and I've known a few. Not only is he a hack/slash electrician I wouldn't trust to put in a plug for me, he's a pathological liar and a thief. He shakes down all the subs for kickbacks, i.e., You want this roofing job at the hospital, come over my house and build me a new deck, etc. What's worse is people have ratted him out for this shit and he's STILL THERE!!!

Worst of all? He's the poser of all posers. Rides a '02 XL1200 a whopping 3/4 of a mile to work everyday, and NO PLACE ELSE. But, he gets off that thing and walks in with so much shit on you'd think he just came in from Sturgis. You hear him in the hallways chatting up women with, "Yeah, I ride a Harley...."

God I hate that sonofabitch!!!

Ok, rant over....sorry!!!

chessie: Anchor babies? This issue, like the 2nd Amendment, has been in the courts many times. Unfortunately, our judges and politicians, rather than reading and applying the Constitution choose to interpret the Constitution to fit their current state of running for re-election. When people throw the 14th Amendment Section 1 in my face they almost always cite: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside”. Bullshit! It says: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside”. Are you here legally? No? Then you are “not” subject to our jurisdiction. Anything you do here is “not” protected under “our” Constitution. Get your ass to the back of the line and wait your turn. And sign the damn guest book on the way in.

Ann: You sure Big D would want to work in the People’s Republic of California?
I don’t pay mileage for commuting. Sorry.

“D-Day”: Mad? Pissed? Nope. Just keeping my mind prepared.
fakstik? Sounds like you perv brain cells are working overtime ;]

Dave: When push comes to shove, there is no side stepping. A full on frontal assault works best.

Mr. M: If I made you smile today, then my job here is finished. Good-bye.

“Joker”: It’s an easy job. Work at your own pace, as long as you get the job done. That’s the key. It’s actually the same job I had when I started in this business in 1985. And it sure as hell wasn’t $13.00 back then.

I’ve had some bosses like your last one. They almost make going to work a job. You know the old saying: “What goes around comes around”. With any luck you’ll see him broke down someday and you can flip him off as you ride by.

Hey don’t be sorry. If I asked you to build me a deck, I’d at least buy the beer ;)

You have me mercifully pissed off. Maybe someday I can take that to my own bank.

B.B. said...

Well said my friend!

Willy D said...

Rick: Yep. There seems to be plenty of “pissed off” to go around right now.

B.B.: Thanks.
