The Hardline (series) 2012

A series of continuous, profound original epigrams and statements from the mind of RobFather X!

“I’ve always believed that the only reason our planet maintains its fix in the solar system is the fact that it is balanced with both intelligent and stupid people!!”

“I won’t forget the people who have fucked me up. You never want to forget the people who have fucked you up, for those are the people who make you stronger. I won’t ever forget names, faces, dates, times, places. I will remember it all, for it is everything I remember that makes me who I am. I won’t ever forget those nights where I felt like it was me against the world—those nights where I watched my gas tank emptying by the minute, where I watched nearly everything crumble to pieces in my hands, where I felt like I had run out of time to escape the tide. It is always you against the world, and that is something you can never forget. The wine in your glass—if you ever get that glass filled—always does taste sweeter after an unbelievable drought.” (Author unknown)
S/N: These are the words written by someone on-line whose pain I can very much relate to!  (GER)

“Music – in all it’s genres and various levels of those genres is not created to necessarily appease or please a mass of people at all at once. Rather, it is created to first appease and please the ear of the SINGLE listener! That single listener, who enjoys what he or she hears, who chooses to share the same with two other people, each who chose to share it with two others, and so on and so forth…until that music comes to be enjoyed (and favorably talked about) by a mass of people otherwise known as… fans. When it comes to music and style, this one rule of fact surely applies: To each his or her own ear and personal enjoyment first…not to the enjoyment of several people all at once, regardless of the form, fashion, method of delivery, or genre of that particular music.”

Each one teach one – the history of the way things were; the reasons for the way things are and how to deal with them while maintaining one’s self-respect, and the dreams and hopes of what we want them to be, and our children, having learned such lessons from us, will tell their children, and so on and so on.”

*******************************************************************************
The Internet/Web: A Mixture of Good and Evil –
“I grow weary of constantly advising people to always check the source of certain things they see posted on Facebook that seems almost too good to be true or likely to have never happened or is happening. Why do people allow themselves to be hoodwinked and bamboozled? To say nothing of those people who simply love to share personal information about themselves and/or others on the web! Their risk-taking ignorance sickens me!

When it comes to the sharing of personal information, far too many people are simply ignorant or foolish (or both) and forget themselves whenever they sit their ass in front of a computer. They are like excited kids in a candy, comic book or toy store; just amazed and sucked in by the wonders of this man-made, imperfect, often non-secure communication medium that is a mixture of good and evil we call “the Internet” or the “world-wide-web”. Sadly, all the advice I have given in my 40 years of using various forms of social media communication – and which I continue to give people, will continue to fall on blind eyes, deaf ears and hard-headed, “know-it-all” brains. Fuck it. I have to develop a new attitude with regard to me trying to help others.

CHECK IT: Let those who hath wisdom, take measures to teach their own and worry less about the actions of the foolish!”
(GER-201206:07)
*******************************************************************************
On Respect and Love:
“I’ve always believed and said that RESPECT and LOVE go hand in hand. One cannot exist without the other. In fact, I believe that while the following holds true with regard to things, it is especially and most importantly true when it comes to people: you must first respect BEFORE you can ever love someone. You cannot say that you love a particular person if you do not have respect for that person. If you do not have or show any degree of respect it is nearly impossible to have or show any degree of love. To me, it is that simple. There is no compromise.”
(GER-201206:10)
*******************************************************************************
“Any relationship worth having is always going to require 24/7 maintenance. You are talking about two different people coming together and learning each other. The “work’ involved is patience, tolerance, kindness, and keeping things interesting between the two of you! If you were with someone exactly like you, things would get boring real fast and the relationship would be bound to fail.”
(GER-201206:11)
*******************************************************************************
“In marriage or committed relationship, use of the genitals is not the primary factor; rather, such relationships also involve emotional stability, compatibility, pleasing personalities, intelligence, loyalty and creativity – with all of it and more, coming from BOTH people in the relationship! These are the traits which define “dignity” in ANY relationship – married or otherwise.”
(GER-201206:12)

“It’s shameful that many [Black] people are the greatest in denial of certain things happening around them in the real world …while at the same time, practice hypocrisy of what’s actually real to the highest levels!”

“It’s good to know and remember your personal history, but you should never dwell in it! A purposeful life demands that you move on and concentrate on your personal future potential, often as a result of the unchangeable things done in your past!”

*******************************************************************************
“Many of us love and, to a fault, love too much. We love, but we have NO ONE to love and no one to love US in the same manner in which WE give love. Is it any wonder then that we often long for the heavens to just…take us?”
(GER-201207:14)
*******************************************************************************
“I am often amazed how certain people I know, am related to, or who work with me, think they “know” me (and they always seem to believe they really do know me!), always get their panties in a bunch whenever I go off – as in BALLISTIC ANGER – either verbally in their presence or in forums such as this blog or on Facebook! I must have warned time and again that it would be a very serious mistake to ever (ever!) assume that my “nice guy and laid back” demeanor does NOT have a “limited patience” trigger. Generally,I’m kool with everyone. Really; I am! But…fuck with me at your own peril!”
(GER-201208:02)
*******************************************************************************
On Consistency:
“Very early in my military career, I learned that consistency can work more for me than against me, especially when it came to my being in leadership positions (which was most of my 20 year career)! Consistency has also worked very well for me as a father! A consistent leader (or parent) will earn more respect from his/her subordinates (or children) by them knowing and understanding where that leader/parent stands on certain things, even if those subordinates/children disagree, than one who is inconsistent and who tends to”flip-flop”, back-track, or even deny his/her originally stated or established viewpoint or stance on something.”

“Depending on your gender, the stress-relieving services of either “Jack” or “Jill” often satisfy at least 92 to 95 percent of their clients. Many psychologists believe that the remaining percentages are of people who, for some reason, either deny what “Jack” or “Jill” has done for them, allow religious dogma to stand in the way of receiving such services, or lack the necessary working equipment.”

*******************************************************************************
On Betrayal and Forgiveness:
“I completely understand forgiveness but I do not subscribe to the religious or “christian” rhetoric of forgiveness. I forgive based upon how I feel…and sometimes if a person asks me for it. I don’t do it simply because somebody says I should. I am sure my Creator God wants me to forgive others, for indeed, no one is perfect, not even me. Human imperfection is God’s fault. [Yes, I said it.] Religions recognize well this fact which is why lines like; “forgive those as you would have others forgive you” is pushed continuously from childhood to the deathbed. The idea of forgiveness is to clear one’s personal conscience and cover whatever imperfect or horrible thing one person did to another so that everybody involved can move the fuck on with their lives.

People have done many things to me for which I have freely forgiven. If I forgive you, I do so without compromise or strings attached. (Consider that a big thing…coming from me.) However, I have extreme difficulty forgiving anyone who betrays me. I have difficulty in forgiving that person or those persons in whom I’ve invested a great amount of loyalty, trust, and confidence who have betrayed me! My definition of betrayal includes the meaning of ANY act that would compromise this. Yet, though I may forgive a betrayer, the person(s) who has betrayed me can simply forget about repairing any relationship between us; for once a person betrays me (and ONCE is the only chance I’d ever give), that person will be considered persona non grata; a non-person, and one totally unworthy of my respect, no matter how casual I may conduct myself towards that person.
Betrayal: truly one of the worse and one of the most unforgivable acts a person can ever do to another.”

“While technically no vote made is ever a wasted vote (because a vote is always advantageous to someone), keep in mind that an IGNORANT VOTER is bound to make IGNORANT CHOICES which thus results in IGNORANT VOTES! Don’t be ignorant! Be informed! Learn who your candidates really are, their voting history, AND where they truly stand on the issues that YOU care about which may affect YOUR future and those of YOUR family! Be familiar with local, state, and national issues up for a vote. It is YOUR responsibility to KNOW and to UNDERSTAND what is going on BEFORE completing that absentee ballot or entering the voting booth!”

*******************************************************************************
Fuck buddy (noun): taboo, slang.  Alternate term: “friend with benefits”.
1.  A person with whom another person has a relationship based on casual sex only.
2.  A sexual partner with whom one has no romantic or nonsexual interests.
Ex: Jack and Jill (or Jim) are just fuck buddies. They really don’t care a thing about each other.
“In my opinion, regardless of the second definition, I think the BEST fuck buddies are those whom one has known for a good while. Sex with someone you know is a lot more fun, if not better!”

Regarding intimate details of my life:
“I say, if you want to “fish”, you’ll need to go to deeper waters and carry with you an open mind…”
(GER-201209:16)
*******************************************************************************
On Casual Sex:

“In the world of sexually active and consenting adults, strangers or mere acquaintances who may one time or even occasionally fuck does not necessarily mean or indicate that either sex partner is, will, or even wants to become friends with the other sex partner on any particular level. This is especially applicable if there is no attempt by either person to establish, build, or maintain any sort of friendship. Casual sex between such people simply means just that: casual sex. Each person mutually agrees to be used to obtain and/or give some physical and sexual gratification; to be a means to an end; to be a fuck buddy. No emotional strings are attached or expected between the two (or more) people, neither is there any obligation of sexual commitment or loyalty to any particular sex partner. Usually the only expectation between adult casual sex partners is honesty about sexual health and discretion.  However, if you were one of the sex partners actually expecting something more from the other sex partner and didn’t get it, you probably deserve to feel like a tool, for you have broken the cardinal rules of casual sex. This is why minors and/or emotionally and sexually immature people should not have sex. Such people either don’t know or often break the rules of casual sex, which always causes somebody getting hurt or angry.  If you can’t handle adult casual sex, perhaps you should first seek a meaningful friendship with the next person to whom you are attracted before ever participating in any form of sex.”

“Sometimes, when I’m feeling extremely sexually aggressive, I fuck ’em … just to see the look on their faces …”
(GER-201209:21)
*******************************************************************************
“Often, I see why society makes ALL of us liars. Truly, no one is ever completely honest all of the time. Those who claim as much are outright liars! For example, when dealing with government public services, the need to lie or withhold information is often triggered by red tape bureaucracy, dumb laws, and ambiguous policies. Unfortunately, there are some people who work for certain governmental public agencies who are supposed to be providing assistance but in doing so, really show that they have their own selfish agendas. I have learned that being honest and/or giving specific or too much information does NOT pay. When dealing with such situations (and some others), it really is often better to lie and/or cheat in order to obtain that which is rightfully, and perhaps deservingly, mine. Yes, there will be times when one must momentarily lay aside personal morals and convictions and do what one must do for the better benefit of himself and/or his loved ones….and often by any means necessary. Only a person comfortable with who he is can easily do this and still move on with life without letting such actions affect him.”
(GER-201209:26)
*******************************************************************************
On Religion (1):
“Religion is the ULTIMATE hoodwink. One cannot “go” nor “be sent” somewhere (like “Hell”) if one has doubts or no longer believes that a certain place (like Hell) exists. (Click here to read about so-called “special places” in Hell.) I continue to have serious doubts about Hell…which may also include the existence of there being a Heaven as well. When I die, my corporeal form will be gone but perhaps my spiritual energy may find a new home elsewhere. If that be the case, all the déjà vu experiences I’ve had at least weekly in this lifetime will certainly make sense! Remember when I said that I know the Bible better than most of you think? Ok. So now, I’d thank you all please, to save me the trouble of having to block or delete your biblical references.” (To be continued)
(GER-201209:28)
*******************************************************************************
On Personal Integrity:
“I take no level of pleasure in the unexpected misery, misfortune, suffering or embarrassing moments of other people. I never have before, nor do I now, ever “get off” on seeing it up-close, on television or video, or being gleefully told and gossiped about by people who do. I find such “pleasures” disturbing, sickening, appalling, disrespectful, and a significant indicator of a lack of personal class on part of the person(s) doing the filming and/or reporting. I shall have nothing to do with it! Unless the person going through such awful situations is a close and loving family member or a dear friend with whom I would gladly and without hesitation drop whatever I was doing and offer/lend assistance, I couldn’t care less if other people in such situations are celebrities, a mere or casual acquaintance, my worst enemy, or simply an unknown. I am a man of class and integrity – as I choose to define class and integrity. As such, I strive hard to be a part of the POSITIVE things in life, choosing instead to associate myself with others who believe as I do and who strive for the same thing. Such a road is difficult enough to navigate and maintain focus, given all the bullshit in the way. I do not need the potholes of negativity to make my journey any more difficult than what it already is. Therefore, refrain from wanting to share with me your negative conduct and bullshit! Keep away from me all your eagerness to possibly add to someone else’s misfortune through first hand reports, exaggeration, gossip, bad mouthing and the sharing of media or personal footage about that person. While I choose not to judge anyone in the things which bring them this sort of absurd “entertainment” (no matter how much I may detest it), anyone attempting to share such with me does so at the risk of losing a friend and possibly gaining an enemy. You have been warned.”

*******************************************************************************
On Assholes:
“Assholes. Everybody has one. Everybody knows one. Sometimes we may act or feel like an asshole. Nobody really wants to be an asshole but sometimes situations come up where we have to assume that role. Sadly, there are people who don’t know that they are assholes…REAL assholes. Nobody likes an asshole. Then again, some do … in more ways than you might be thinking. And the world goes on.”

*******************************************************************************
“I’ve said it before: when it comes to grammar, punctuation, and general English language syntax, it is pathetic how many people in America actually write EXACTLY as they hear themselves (assuming they hear themselves) speak. It is sadder when those same people will possibly re-read what they just wrote and still send it off as a post or text, fully believing that others will “certainly understand” everything they just wrote.”

“To know me is to completely understand and accept the fact that I rate Loyalty and Trust on the same level, if not often, a notch or two above that of Love and Respect.

Question posed to me: “Do you think I’m sexy?”
My answer: “Your body may be nice, desirable, and even sexy. Personally, I’d prefer to see how your MIND is. For it is the MIND, which to me, helps me determine one’s true sexiness! If your mind is fucked up so then is everything else about you! I make no apologies for having this standard; it’s simply how I roll. Deal with it!”

*******************************************************************************
On Freeballing:
“I happen to enjoy the occasional option to NOT wear underwear.  In other words, I enjoy freeballing or “going commando”. I don’t understand what the big deal is against us men (or women) who chose to do this. So long as a man (or woman) knows what to wear, how to wear, and when to wear certain clothing, there is never any diminishing of that person’s sense of dignity or class if or when he (or she) decides to go commando. Many people make the decision to go commando strictly for personal reasons and comfort; not for the approval or judgment of others. There is nothing “nasty”, “disgusting”, “ungodly”, or possibly “illegal” about it. People need to stop turning up their noses and get the fuck over themselves at the mention of seeing or assuming that a person is not – or may not – be wearing any undergarments. Speaking for all my fellow males who enjoy freeballing, unless you plan on dating or being a “friend with benefits” (FWB)… AND intend on helping us keep cool “down there”, stay the fuck out of our pants!”

*******************************************************************************
On Funnybook (aka Facebook) shit:
“I DO NOT “poke” on Funnybook! Man the fuck up and inbox a “hello” to me if you want MY attention! Poking is childish and for punks! I’m a grown man. However, in case you don’t understand that meaning, allow me to clarify: I’m a Philly nigga … and as such, I don’t need to “poke” ANYONE to get their attention. I was raised to call you by name or, in extreme cases – and as necessary, get in your face and say what I need to say. I’m nobody’s punk or bitch who can be “poked” as though I was in a game of tag or some shit! I repeat: I’m a grown man, muthafuckas! Respect that!
(GER-201210:26)
*******************************************************************************
“In any communication or possible relationship with me – a person whom you know to be older, world traveled, well-versed in life and therefore a bit wiser – why would you ever expect me to suppress or apologize for my life experiences and/or having knowledge about certain things simply to keep you from feeling small, belittled or insulted? The problem in our communication and/or relationship in this sense is not with me, it is with you!”
(GER-201210:30)
*******************************************************************************
“In any argument (especially the potentially nasty ones), the person who believes himself to be right never has to stress getting the last word. After clearly making his point and realizing that the other person(s) in the argument will not see or possibly respect his point of view, he simply and gladly allows that person to have the last word and will move on. The person who believes himself to be right knows that there will always be other things to debate and/or argue about on another day. Wasting time spilling more words onto stubborn or closed ears is not worth further trouble.”

Message to a certain young man:
“You’re kool bruh. Really. But you rarely ever listen and you never cover your ass!  Now you’re in serious trouble – just as I predicted! In all of our arguments, I must have told you time and again that my age, wisdom, and experience will ALWAYS outdo your youth, know-it-all attitude, level of education, and so-called skill!  Being intelligent does not mean you have experience. You continue to underestimate me; thinking of me as an “old man” with dull wits. Underestimating me has always been your biggest mistake! I’ve warned you time and again. You’re just now realizing that I was right and that you could NEVER get up early enough to beat me at this game called…LIFE! I am a MASTER at CYA, you hardheaded, wet-behind-the-ears, stupid little muthafucka!  That’s not name-calling; it’s a clear identifying fact of what you are!  You can change that by learning from me or you can continue to play with the other boys of your ilk and staying the fuck out of the business of MEN!”

“Always be yourself in ALL situations. If someone played ANY role of support while you were down-and-out and when you were at the point where all you could do was just “take one day at time”, REMEMBER those persons who were there for you! If possible or necessary, reach back and help those less fortunate and/or try to be there for those supportive people when they have a misfortune. Finally, the best thing to always do? PAY IT (your good fortune) FORWARD.”

I’m simply calling it as I see it!”

On Barack Obama’s re-election as the 44th President of the United States:
“As a Black man, one with an ever-increasing wealth of knowledge of African-American/Black history, I was so very humbled four years ago when fate and my Creator God allowed me to see for the first time in American history, a Black man elected to the United States presidency. I have been repeatedly blessed four years later to witness that same Black man get re-elected to another term in that great office, marking a very significant achievement in American history that can never be erased or ignored. May this election send a very strong message to those still harboring bigotry, racism, divisiveness and hatred in their hearts, that the rest of America wants to continue making the very slow, yet unstoppable turn away from such humanly negative thinking and attitudes of its ancestors and of its sordid past. May God bless, guide, encourage, and protect President Barack Hussein Obama as he governs over the next four years.”

Post-election reality check (1): “This 17-month long presidential campaign has been estimated to have cost nearly TWO BILLION DOLLARS between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney! What a shame, when you think of all the BETTER good that kind of cash could have done for the common American citizen: to some poor child in need of a better education or extensive medical care; to someone without medical insurance who needs a medical bill covered; to some homeless veteran; the list goes on. I never authorize any part of my tax to go to “Presidential Campaigns” on the 1040 tax form because I believe the public should NOT have to help foot the bill or provide the capital for another person’s desire for political position or power.”

Question asked of me on Funnybook:
“Why was Donald Trump so charged against [President] Obama?
My response: “Dicks often get hard for no apparent reason. Therefore, some people (male and female) just seem to have a [figurative] boner for other people. We all know persons who are like this. As much as we try to stay out of their way and mind our own business, somehow they find a way to pry into our personal relationships, business or space. Such people are called “dicks” for a reason!”

*******************************************************************************
On Religion (2):
This is a shockingly graphic picture but it truly and accurately depicts how I (and perhaps some other people) feel about those who tend to judge me and the things I say and do in – and with – my life. I already know the Bible. (Believe it or not, I used to teach from it for years.) I don’t need nor do I want anyone to “bible-thump” scripture at me. I suggest people not concern themselves with my life and my “soul salvation” and just mind their own. If you’re still bored after minding your own business, why not just kill yourself? You’ve accomplished everything you were put on this earth to do, so you’re all done now. Minding other people’s business is never on anyone’s birth agenda! I sure as hell won’t miss you! Obviously, by posting this picture here (and from reading my blog) some of you already know that I don’t take kindly to people trying to tell me what religion I should follow (or not follow) or who or what I should believe in. So, to all of you “power of christ compels you” pushers, enjoy this harmless little scene (sarcastically speaking). Let it seep deep into your mind and into your subconscious in much the same way you attempt to threaten me with descriptions of eternal damnation. Next, take a huge FUCK YOU pill and quietly keep your damn religious beliefs and “weapons” of contradictory, judgmental, and ambiguous biblical scriptures to yourself and leave me – and the way I choose to live my life – the fuck alone!

On Labels:
“It’s bad enough that some people feel the need to label themselves or other people, especially if such labels are inaccurate, ambiguous or worse, non-applicable. There is never any need to label one’s self or to wear any adopted label(s) on your forehead or sleeve (metaphorically speaking). Given enough time and a keen awareness of other people, who you are will either be obvious or will shortly manifest itself.”
(GER-201211:18)
*******************************************************************************
On Drinking:
“Just because I can finish off a bottle of Moscato (or some other wine), a six-pack of beer AND enjoy other spirits and schnapps-sometimes alone – with no hangover in the morning, does NOT make me an “alcoholic”. It simply means I learned how to put away such drink by starting off early in my life with good “old school” guidance on how to drink from family and friends in the ‘hood and buddies in the military (especially the military). It helps to know what to eat AND know what you’re drinking! Don’t get mad because I know how to out-drink some of you young, lightweight and inexperienced muthafuckas!
(GER-201211:18)
*******************************************************************************
“Why is it that whenever some people get into an argument over an issue, particularly those issues relating to another person’s experience or opinion, instead of such people realizing they are losing said argument and simply acknowledging that person’s experience and point of view, they feel the need to mention a number of levels of educational degrees they have or are studying for? One’s schooling, level of education or some fancy words on a piece of paper can never compete with another person’s life experience or point of view on any level. People who claim to be so smart yet push their level of education on someone only proves how dumb and disrespectful they can be, how unwilling they are to accept the fact that education is NOT the same as experience, and that they are not bright enough to at least agree to disagree on an issue and move on.”

Online Pet Peeves [series]: Video music beds –
“I’d like to understand why amateur videographers have this insane need to add a music bed to their online videos. What the hell makes them think other people will actually enjoy their particular selection of music? Unless the video actually features the work of some professional music artist, I’d prefer if they omit music from their videos. Instrumental music would be fine but again some people are not skilled in selecting the proper instrumentals for their videos, therefore it’s best to simply leave the music out altogether. It’s bad enough that there are damn advertising commercial spots being added to online public videos; we shouldn’t have to be subjected to someone’s awful taste in music, too! Not only is the music selection bad or not needed but if we want to turn it off, we either have to find the stop or pause button on that website or mute our own volume control! The same applies to those blogs/websites that feature pornography. (Yes, I shamelessly enjoy looking at pornography so kindly reserve your judgment!) Personally, I don’t enjoy being hit with or having to listen to “music” during my online porn surfing. It’s very annoying and distracting – and for reasons that for some reading this will be obvious. With ANY video, I wish amateur videographers would stop already with the incorporation of any sort of music bed to their online videos! The music just plain sucks!”

On using expletives:
“Any expletive or profane word I chose to use in expressing my opinions – whether verbally or in writing, and if such happens to be in the same sentence or paragraph about or with reference to God, don’t necessarily have anything to do with my feelings – whatever they may be – about God. I’m sure God knows what I am thinking and am going to say or write before I do it, therefore it seems to me that if God was offended by me using expletives like “fuck” or “goddamn” in such instances, He’d had made me mute or incapable of writing years ago!”

On Murder:
“Other than for self-defense or the defense of the life of someone else, such as a family member, friend, or stranger, if you knowingly and purposefully choose to take the life of another person then you may as well take your own life. Why should society be burdened with the expense of  the judicial process and incarceration?  Why should family and friends have to deal with the mental and emotional anguish associated with the wrongful death of their loved one and friend whose life was taken?  I can probably make exceptions to instances of involuntary manslaughter or false accusations. In such cases, let’s get ahead and have the necessary investigation and proceed with the steps necessary in which you could either prove yourself innocent and/or a jury can decide your fate based on the evidence presented to it. Otherwise, there is never enough justice given to anyone who will knowingly and purposefully outright murder another human being!”

S/N: This Hardline According to RobFather-X… is done with F/B friend Louis ‘Azucar Negro’ Farmer!
On Brutal Honesty –
“Brutal honesty is better than a soft lie because the truth is forceful while a lie gains strength slowly but surely” (LANF)” … and a lie is like a weed, that left to grow, will become harder to control or cut down.” (RFX aka GER)

On My Religious Humor –
“It’s said that “an idle mind (or hands) is the devil’s workshop”. I’ve never really been certain that there is a devil but if there is, I would never give him any credit for my sense of humor. That credit, like all my talents and abilities, go to God from whom they originate in the first place! So when you read comments of mine that poke fun at God, the Bible, Jesus or religion as a whole, try to keep in mind that God already knew what I was going to say… and probably had a good laugh – if He Himself didn’t already put such humorous comments in my head in the first place!
Lighten the fuck up!

Regarding the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year holiday season –
“I stopped caring about holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even New Year’s years ago. I won’t go into detail right now except to say that I have lost any reason to observe such “tidings of joy” for the time being. Sure, my teenage son will visit me, I will make the obligatory calls to mom, and even play some holiday music on my little radio show (but I’ve been holding off from doing that this year since such is played on the station where I work during the other six days of the week). In my heart, I feel that if I could stop Time and jump over every day after October 31st to January 2nd of the coming year, I would do that! I feel very strongly about this.” (More about my feelings on this here.)

“What I give so very naturally and freely to others I don’t believe is too much to ask for in return in any potential relationship:
genuine kindness, love, passion, acceptance, honesty, loyalty and respect.
It’s been a few years and I’ve yet to meet anyone willing or able to give me all seven. Well, in this sense I won’t apologize for being greedy.”

Awareness of Mental Health Issues –
S/N: I write this Hardline in light of the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre which occurred in Newtown, Connecticut this past Friday, December 14, 2012. May God comfort the families and friends of those who died, and the family of the person who took those lives, took his own life and those of his parents.
“It’s not fully being talked about – yet – but in a way, we have ourselves as a nation to blame for not applying more than enough pressure to our representatives and leaders in local, state and federal governments to RESUME, CONTINUE and/or ADD more funding to the research and treatment of mental health issues and illnesses. Many people – including veterans – either cannot afford professional help and/or do not know who to go to for help. They are either too embarrassed or ashamed to share with their parents, family, spouses and friends the issues bothering or haunting them. They are afraid of being ridiculed, harassed and possibly rejected by society and even current or prospective employers. As a result, many people who suffer with various degrees of mental health illness (such as depression) tend to take matters in their own hands and just opt to live their lives as best they can. Unfortunately with some people, certain things get to the point in life where that person can no longer restrain his or her fragile grip on sanity and just snaps…causing tragic things to happen either to themselves or to someone else, if not both. Those of us who suffer with various degrees of depression or some other mental issue are thankful for two things: YESTERDAY – for surviving it and getting through it without having posed any harm to ourselves or to others… and TODAY… as each minute and hour passes… grateful that we are alive, as we often struggle to be happy and to do happy things to keep our hearts and minds occupied on POSITIVE things. This is something that is not always an easy to do as, some people who do not understand mental illness, may think! We can always have a HOPE for TOMORROW to be as good a day – or better – than our today! The struggle continues!”

“I’ve made some decisions regarding my personal life and have decided that if there are to be chips as  fallout from things I say or will reveal about my life, then let them fall where they may. I don’t have to pick them up.”
(GER-201212:20)
*******************************************************************************
“People often tell me they want to be in radio or television broadcasting. Well, try working on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Years Eve THEN tell me how you like it! Mind you, I enjoy my job in broadcasting (radio); I’ve been at it for 12 years! But, like the military (where I served 20), there are certain things that have to be sacrificed! You simply get used to such things if you enjoy what you do! Now, do any of you still want to be a radio DJ or work in TV…even if it means missing holidays like Christmas or New Years? Broadcasting is no place for whiners…unless you plan on bringing some wine and cheese to serve the rest of us as you whine! Happy Holidays!”

Ass Eaters (No, not the good kind!) –
“Take this anyway you want but if shit was healthy and sweet, don’t you think everybody would be eating ass? Sadly, some people will step on other people to get ahead. In that effort, they will refuse to honestly think or try to do certain things for themselves. Figuratively speaking, such people will go as far as to eat out the asses of their bosses, co-workers and even the persons near them whose very guts, lifestyle, race, sexuality and personal beliefs they hate – all so they can get – or steal – what they want, when they want it, from that person(s). Once they get it, they quickly go back to being the hateful, spiteful, and ungrateful muthafuckas they always were … and are. We all know people like this; you might call them “backstabbers”,“ass kissers” or “haters”; I simply call them “ass eaters”– with NO sexual connotation whatsoever implied in this regard (for I happen to enjoy anilingus). Such people can’t help being who they are: they were bred to be that way. Still, I feel no pity and am not fooled. Often I find that certain muthafuckas will try (again, figuratively speaking) to eat out my ass every chance they get! My doo-doo must be damn good! Well, I say, bon appétit, beyotches; however, I’d much rather you keep your shit-eating, thieving, lazy and phony selves far away from me! I don’t want you anywhere near when you puke!”

S/N: Normally, the Hardline series is NOT meant to be humorous but I’m making an exception in this case.
“I see quite a few posts on-line about all the food people had at Thanksgiving and over the Christmas holiday. Then those same people talk about how they have to “watch their weight”. Give me a break!
Check it: If you take a shit and all you’ve been dropping are pebbles or small shits, either the rest of the food you had has turned into FAT or you’re STILL full of…SHIT. Other than leaving your body in liquid form, it can only go either way.”

“I can probably forgive you for throwing me under the bus, so to speak; but how the hell you gonna expect me to ever forget it? The recovery from being run over is painful and is something I’ll always remember!”
(GER-201212:28)
*******************************************************************************
A Change in One’s Mindset –
“Like many things that is fluid or flexible, so also is life and with that, the way we tend to think about certain things. Our opinions and convictions, perhaps even our personal moral code, is always subject to change or evolving – especially if we allow it – either in some small way or completely! This is attributed to us getting older, wiser, and gaining knowledge and experience in and with various things, giving cause to adjust and/or change our points of view. This is mental progress or an evolution of the mind. Evolution of the mind is a healthy thing! It does not necessarily mean that one is hypocritical or a “sell-out”, nor does it necessarily mean that one is betraying or threatening some sort of family value or tradition, religious belief or a social norm. It is nothing of the sort! Evolution of the mind means that a person, having become more wise and experienced, is better able to think and decide about certain ideas or opinions independently, devoid of the pressure or influence of others. Evolution of the mind will free one of the shackles of mental inflexibility and mental enslavement to whatever was once learned and/or believed from an earlier time and age in one’s life.“

End of Year Hardline –
I’ve decided that 2013 will be the year when I will no longer give, offer, or make any apologies for who I am, what I say or do, choose to post on Funnybook or this blog. In fact, I might get rawer than ever before! Naturally, I expect a few people will fall off my FB “friends” and subscriber’s list, which is perfectly fine. In a world with seven billion souls, I won’t take it personally because I’m simply too fuckin’ kool for petty shit! And no, muthafuckas; it’s not about my attitude. Check it:
Unless you know me personally, have bothered to talk (or text/chat) with me for more than ten minutes, have come to understand AND respect my sense of individuality, high level of intelligence, unique sense of humor and mindset on a host of issues, you really don’t know shit about my attitude – let alone about ME! If you must know, my attitude is – and has always been – based on how I’m treated by others. Now, I don’t believe in making superficial “new year’s resolutions” because I don’t need a “start date” for changes I make in my life; I simply go ahead and do whatever the fuck I feel and want to do when I feel the need! However, since today is the last day of 2012, let me end it with a blanket statement that covers this day, the year 2013 and on. It’s a message for my haters, for those who “think” they know me and for those who would prefer I censor my comments to suit their tastes. It’s the shortest message I’ve ever posted which very clearly and tersely expresses my now non-apologetic and less-forgiving manner. You ready for it? Here’s the message:
Fuck you.
