September 19, 2012 – I have a question for you folks. You just won the lottery and have a huge, oh lets say $150 million jackpot to worry about managing. Now that you’ve won, you’re gonna need some financial help managing that huge fortune, right? You have two guys to choose from, and one of them is going to be responsible for making all of your future decisions on how that money will be invested and made to grow even bigger. Guess who those choices are? Yep, Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. So tell me folks, who’s it gonna be? Are you going to pick a guy who loves to spend other people’s money, has never held a meaningful job in the private sector, and spent the last four years building a national debt of historical proportions? Or, will you choose a guy who has made a very successful career managing money, saving corporations from failure, creating jobs and building a fortune?
By the way, while you’re pondering that tough question, I have some homework for you. Go do some research and tell me which of these two men has been the most charitable. You might be quite surprised.
Forbes has accounted for nearly $18 million of charitable giving by Mitt Romney to date, roughly 8% of what we currently estimate his net worth to be, and three times Obama’s net worth. Yet it is very likely that we are undercounting Romney’s total lifetime giving by many millions, as any exhaustive log of Romney’s pre-2010 out of pocket donations is locked away in the presidential candidate’s historical tax returns.
Yea, that Mitt Romney guy, he’s probably going to really screw up our economy if he gets elected. Just imagine how bad a guy like Romney is gonna be if he ever gets in control of our country. God help us. -JRoycroft
September 2, 2012 – “Toddlers & Tiaras” hits another low when the mother of a 4-year old little girl sends her on stage smoking a fake cigarette.
For those of you who are not familiar with the tv show, it’s basically about a bunch of parents, mostly mothers who dress their little girls to look like $3 whores in hopes they’ll win a beauty pageant.
It’s worth the discomfort of watching at least one episode to understand just how sick and pathetic these parents are.
This quote from the mother of little 4-year-old Destiny, speaks for itself on the reasoning behind why these child abusers disgrace their children. “I think I like pageants so well, because when I was younger, growing up, I didn’t get to do anything like that, So I think I’m living my dreams through my little girl.”
Living her dreams through her little Destiny by sticking a fake cigarette in her mouth, painting her face like a cheap whore and putting her on public display. Where are the fathers and why the hell are they allowing this to happen?
My guess is either they are real creeps themselves, or just gutless little wimps with no say in the matter. -JRoycroft

Aug 1, 2012 – Today is the big day to show your support of Dan Cathy by visiting your local Chick-fil-A, which a whole lot of people did.
I’m quite sure that Dan Cathy is sitting some where with a great big smile on his face knowing that by the end of business today he will probably have set some kind of sales record, thanks in part to the protest by those scary little gay people and that fool of a Mayor in Chicago, who I heard was having an affair with that minister from Westboro Baptist church. I find it funny as shit how the whole thing back-fired right in their faces. So hows that protest workin out for ya now, huh?
Now for my rant about some of the absolutely disgusting things I’ve been reading from folks on both sides of the gay rights/Christian values argument.
Let me be perfectly clear. I am not taking sides with either group. Both sides have enough blame to go around and both have their share of garbage to be taken out.
For starters, I ran across a comment on Facebook just a few minutes ago that came from some idiot named Emma who was responding to Dan Cathy expressing his views on same sex marriage and Christian values by saying, ”Out of respect to everyone they should keep it to themselves.” That’s fine Emma, so it’s ok for you to have an opinion but not Dan Cathy? You are so typical.
Lets cut to the chase folks, unless of course you’re a gay pushing your gay rights agenda down everyone’s throat and crying every damn time you aren’t recognized, then the rest of us are expected to keep our mouths shut. Right?
Ok, I get it. You are so damned typical. Look around, life sucks for some folks. Read the hateful comments coming from your gay supporters. Read what you posted and change it around. Your comment works both ways you ignorant little fool. I don’t want to be exposed to you shoving your tongue down your friends throat no more than I want some religious zealot shoving their morals in my face. Get over yourselves. For once in your pathetic miserable life try living your life without crying because someone doesn’t like you. No one, NO ONE is free from criticism in this world. If you don’t like Chick-fil-A then don’t eat there. If you can’t deal with the pressures of society then go climb back into your damn closet in a fetal position sucking your thumb or what ever and SHUT THE F–K UP! Some of us are just a little sick and damn tired of idiots like you. The only difference between you and some religious zealot is your sexual preference. You’re both irritating little brats that most of us are getting sick and damn tired of.
Both of you groups listen up! If you want folks to take you seriously then try for once in your life to accept the fact that you are different and some folks are going to take notice, point and laugh. Just like they would if you were fat, ugly, crippled or any number of other reasons. Get over yourselves. Sometimes it just sucks to be you.
I happen to be as straight as I can be, except maybe, well sometimes I think I may be a lesbian trapped in a mans body, but that’s neither here nor there.
So here we all are bitching, moaning and groaning because we don’t like the gay lifestyle or we don’t like Christian values. What the hell are we to do about it? What??
How about we all just live and let live. Both sides need to grow up and get over yourselves. It’s never gonna change.
Whats the one thing we all have in common today? What is the one thing that affects each and everyone of us as Americans? Think about that for a while.
Here we all are fighting over how someone else should be living their lives. What harm is being done to you if Dan Cathy believes in Christian values? What harm is being done to you if Joe marries Sam or Emma marries Beth? How in the hell does one affect the other? It doesn’t. Neither of you are having your rights violated by anyone.
There is enough blame to go around for each of you. If you remove the labels the arguments are the same. You disagree because you are different. Welcome to the real world.
Now back to my question. What do we all have in common today?
We are all in danger of losing everything we’ve fought and died for in our country.
There in our White House sits an occupier, a devout Marxist who doesn’t give a rats ass about any of us. He doesn’t give a damn whether you are gay, black, white, pink or green. All he cares about is how much of your money he can take from you and give to that lazy moocher over there. He cares only about his power to rule over you.
Folks, the time has come that we all wake up and pay attention to what is really important in our lives. Our future as a free American society is nearing an end as we’ve grown to know it. Are we going to continue this fight over trivial bull shit? And in the grand scheme of things, it really is trivial bullshit.
Why can’t you folks just sit down and shut up long enough to realize that the world is not going to end because you disagree with your neighbors.
The world as we know it today will come to an end if we don’t come together and start paying attention to the important things in our lives.
Save your energy for a fight that means something to the future of our society. There will be plenty of time to express our personal views on religion and gay rights later… Maybe. -JRoycroft
July 28, 2012 – How many of you wake up only to find your Facebook “friends” list has gotten smaller overnight?
Happens to everyone I suppose. Last night it happened to me. I woke up this morning to see that 6 people had left in the night, not a word of where or why they left.
No, I’m not sad, nor do I really give a flying fornication. I just don’t have anything else to bitch about today.
Here’s what I think happened – Most folks in my friends list are family, either mine or Lindsay’s. So I’ve noticed that when I make a status comment some folks get a bit nervous, including my dear wife, who will call me out on damn near anything that might be over the top. She is my filter. Trust me when I say this, if not for Lindsay, I would probably be in political prison or shunned by close family members.
I’ve always been outspoken on political issues, but not with family. Unless of course they agree with me, and I know exactly who agrees with me.
My family is divided into five distinct categories.
- Suspected Gay
You can see that my family categories are probably pretty close to your own.
I know that right now someone is getting very nervous about this post. Don’t worry, I’m not going to out anyone. Don’t need to, we all know who you are, you just don’t know that we know who you are… And yes, we talk about you behind your back all the time.
Now about last night, and I know some of you are scrambling right now to see what it was that I wrote that caused six people to abandon me.
Last night, or rather yesterday I made a comment about something I had overheard while in a customers office. That’s all I’ll say.
I knew when I made that comment, someone might take it to heart and understand how it could very well have been indirectly aimed at them. It wasn’t intended that way. Actually, now that I think about it, it did have a remarkable resemblance to what a certain family recently went through. Ha! Now it all makes sense.
Most people who know me personally will tell you that I don’t hold back once pushed. I was pushed a lot growing up and made the decision to start pushing back early on. On a rare occasion someone will say that one thing that will set me off to the point where I am on that tiny little brink of insanity. You know what I’m talking about.
Sorry, I was beginning to drift off topic.
About Facebook friends- who really cares if they leave. Most wouldn’t give me the time of day. The only reason some are there is to boost their own friends list numbers. Me? Could not care less one way or the other. Facebook to me is nothing more than a way to vent and play with your emotions. Some of you have figured that out.
To all of you that put up with my twisted sense of humor, sarcasm and insensitive comments, I thank you and love you long time.
To those of you that ran away in the night with your tails between your legs, I will be talking about you, behind your backs, to everyone else that stayed behind. -JRoycroft
Got something on your mind that you just want to let it out? Pissed about the state of our country, Obama or just pissed at the world, or your spouse?
Beginning this week you will have the opportunity to post your rant on my blog and tell the world how you really feel. Say it out loud right here. Just send me your own original words to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “Here’s My RANT” in the subject line. All topics are welcomed.
If I like it I’ll post it, un-edited on Fridays.
