I grew up in Strongsville, Ohio. At the end of my street, about four hundred feet from my driveway, there was a Sohio gas station. In 1977 I started to hang out there. Times at the gas station were much different back then. You would pull up to the pump, a bell rings inside and the “gas station guy” would come out and fill up your tank. When no one was wanting gas the “gas station guy” would work on a car that was in need of service in the garage. I was thirteen. I thought this type of atmosphere was great. I soon discovered the evils that permeated the gas station.
They had a cigarette machine. I had a bunch of quarters in my piggy bank so I started buying packs of Vantage. I didn’t know ya had to inhale so I could have experienced the same thing by just being inside aa burning building. They had stacks of porn. I thought it was cool but in hindsight it’s a bit disturbing to imagine a man in his twenties passing the time at his job by reading Penthouse forum. They had weed. That’s right. Smoked a joint before I ever tasted alcohol. Thirty-eight bucks for an ounce of Columbian Gold. At this point in my life I sincerely thought I landed on Fantasy Island.
Mom put a stop to me going to the gas station when she caught me with some H-100’s. H-100’s are equal to a quarter stick of dynamite. I bought a gross of them for forty bucks at where else????? The gas station!!! For FUN us kids would go into the woods and put H-100’s in freaking trees and we would just laugh as a ten year old maple eviserated into a pile of mulch. Who needs a video game when you can enjoy the great outdoors while blowing shit up?? Gas stations sure are different today. You can get a freaking latte’, some lottery tickets, a ham sandwich and a snow brush except you pump your own gas. They now refer to this place as a “convenience store.” I will always remember what it used to be before it went through rehab. It was the portal to temptation. It was and always will be…..the GAS STATION!!!!

It’s been an odd year. That may be the greatest understatement of all time. We are being told by government officials and scientists to not gather in large groups this Thanksgiving because of the ongoing pandemic of Covid 19. I moved back to the Cleveland area over two years ago to be near my family but I have spent MANY Thanksgivings alone when I was in the wild and wacky world of morning radio and it’s really not that bad.
You don’t have to shower and it isn’t necessary to wear pants. Think about some of your greatest memories. If all of these memories happened while you were wearing pants….then you are NOT enjoying life the way it was meant to be. Life gets to be fun when you remove your pants.
No one kicks you under the table because you are drinking too much wine and all the booze in the kitchen belongs to YOU! There is nothing more frustrating than watching a fat ass relative opening the $100 bottle of Dead Arm wine you brought and drinking it out of a plastic cup.
Best of all…..you can pass out on the recliner any time ya want. I can’t tell ya the number of times I ate shitty, dry turkey that I washed down with a generous amount of wine in the box and ended up snoring and drooling on a stranger’s couch only to get shaken back to reality by a slap on my head from a female friend. I’m not gonna miss that freakshow! There is no reason to social distance when you are thankful for being alone. Take you pants off and have some fun!! Happy Thanksgiving 2020!!! 🦾🦾🦾

I’m fifty-six years old. I’m just sitting back and watching the shit show that is 2020. I actually feel that I am very blessed to be in the position that I am currently in during this tumultuous time. It’s because I really don’t give a shit what people think about me anymore. It’s a wonderful feeling to be in this position. Please don’t think for one moment that I have stopped caring. That is far from the truth. I am at a point in my life where I have looked “behind the curtain” an am confident I figured out what is important in life.
I wasted a lot of time in my career focusing on what others thought of me. I compromised my beliefs in order to be that “team player.” If I truly had confidence in myself I would have followed my instincts. Don’t get me wrong; telling people what they want to hear has it’s benefits. You climb the corporate ladder quickly and are rewarded financially but you have sacrificed your integrity and you will never be happy.
Eventually the sacrifice of your integrity becomes too much to handle. You enjoy the two hundred dollar Friday night dinners and the one-hundred and fifty dollar jeans you purchase impulsively but something is missing in your life that cannot be filled financially. You don’t feel complete. You feel like a cartoon character that is on stage in the theatrics of life. I enjoyed my time in the world of radio when it was relevant but I was really playing a character. I wasn’t totally open and honest with myself so how could I expect to be open and honest with others? I had great parents. They raised me well. I needed to reexamine the basics. What did they stress that I missed out on?
It didn’t take me long to figure it out. It was “honesty.” I am not alone in this mistake. A lot of us make it in our journey in life. Being honest is not easy. People will not like what you have to say. People like to be assured. They do not like to be challenged. Do NOT make the mistake that I made. Get used to being honest from the beginning and not telling people what they want to hear. It will not be easy but you will eventually build respect and integrity. Funny thing about always telling the truth is you never have to think back to try and remember what ya said. Thank you for your time and for sharing with others. 🦾🦾🦾

Well I don’t think anyone of us thought this would happen. We have a complete shit show on our hands. How did this happen? No matter what the outcome of this election…..no matter who is declared “the winner”….this is inexcusable for ALL Americans. I have said for a long time that our government is polluted with corruption. Remember the disaster of the Election 2000. That was twenty years ago. We all realized that this was an election like no other. This country is on the brink of a Civil War. Everyone is pointing the finger of blame at somebody else. The very last thing we needed as a country was an election shadowed in doubt….and that is EXACTLY what we have.
We as a nation, do not deserve this. Kerosene has been thrown on the bonfire. I do not hide my intense hatred for our government. What exactly do they do that doesn’t end up needing to be flushed? The bigger the government gets the more problems we have. It’s always been that way and now we have a huge problem on our hands. Turn down the sound of your television and you can hear the rest of the world laughing at us. There are states in this election that had more votes than registered voters. Now we have the perfect storm.
The country needed to be united. Now the problem is worse. The shit show that is 2020 continues. Lawsuits will be filed in many states. People needed to calm down. People are now more pissed off than ever before. I’m not even a Republican. I am a Libertarian. The Patriots have been quiet this summer. They sat back and watched the social terrorist organizations that is ANTIFA and BLM assault citizens and the police. They watched these urine bags burn buildings, take bottles of Hennessy and washing machines and topple statues. I can assure you that they won’t sit back and be quiet if they believe the Constitution was attacked and the Presidency was stolen. I don’t know what happened. I just know that this battered and bruised nation did not deserve this and we have a very severe problem on our hands. Thank you government for that.

Joe Biden recently called Trump supporters “ugly people.” Oddly enough I wasn’t offended. Funny thing happened during the past four years as us “ugly people” seem to have come together in a common bond…..a love for our country. This country was formed by a bunch of rejects. People of all ethnicities coming together with a common goal; to experience freedom and opportunity. I hate the government. It’s the biggest threat to our freedom and on this Election Day I firmly believe our Constitution is at risk.
A funny thing happened in 2016. America elected a President with zero political experience. He was a successful businessman. His name is Donald J. Trump. Trump is a lighting rod. There is no grey area with this man. You either love or hate him. He’s a billionaire. Most of us are not. So how would this billionaire with zero political experience deal with becoming the most powerful man in the world? I’ll admit he is like a bull in a China shop. He didn’t back down. He took on everyone in Washington. He tells you what he is gonna do….he does it….then tells ya what he did. That is the formula of success for Donald Trump. People noticed. People reacted. People came together. It truly was one of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed in my life.
As an “ugly person” I am not judged. I am accepted. No one cares how much money I have or how I dress. I have always been a very insecure person. I have an incredible need to be loved and accepted. As a teenager I just wanted to be popular. I was class President my junior year but it still wasn’t enough. I felt alone. This may sound silly but you may be able to relate to this. I can’t dance. Not at all. I look like I need medical attention. I was VERY self conscious of this all my life. I didn’t want to make a fool of myself. I didn’t want people to make fun of me. I think a lot of people in this world feel alone. During the last four years something happened. No one can deny this. No one.
The “ugly people” came from EVERYWHERE!!! Rich, poor, black, white, male and female. Some are rednecks….some are fat….some are skinny…yet we share a common bond; a love of our country and freedom. It all came full circle when Donald J. Trump started to dance to the YMCA at the end of his rallies. He can NOT dance at all. He looks like the drunk Uncle at the wedding reception that is the first on the dance floor when the DJ plays “Old Time Rock and Roll.”
He just doesn’t care what people think. Suddenly everyone is doing the Trump Dance. I know it sounds stupid but it’s very important to me. After fifty six years on this planet I am able to dance. I still dance like shit but I really don’t care. This man deserves four more years. He has been through hell. He gets knocked down and he still gets up. He’s not perfect. No one but God is. Thank you Donald J. Trump for making me feel important. I’m proud to be an American. I’m proud that I can’t dance. I’m proud to be an “ugly person.”👇👇👇
I spend a lot of time on the internet. I read a lot and do a superfluous amount of research and it just doesn’t add up. Many polls have Joe Biden with a ten point lead as we approach the two week countdown to Election 2020. It doesn’t make any sense.
If you have listened to my podcast then you are well aware of the allegations against Hunter and Joe Biden. I told you about this in March of 2020. It now appears that Joe Biden used his drug addicted son to launder money from Ukraine. Is that a surprise to you? That’s just one of the reasons the swamp needs to be drained. How come the Biden camp has not refuted the existence of the laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter? I have been accused of things I did not do and I made enough noise to wake the dead.
Sleepy Joe tried to use the Chinese Plague as an excuse to hide in the basement and to stop the successful Trump rallies. Trump knows how to adapt and he started doing rallies outside at various airports. The sight of Air Force One behind the podium as he speaks to the massive amount of supporters gives me chills. Thanks for helping the Trump brand, Sleepy Joe.
Look….Trump is an acquired taste. He’s not for everyone but I go to sleep at night knowing my President will protect the United States of America and protect our Constitution. I don’t have to worry about him making backdoor deals with countries only for personal benefit. If Joe Biden does not care about his drug addicted son then why should he care about you?? He shouldn’t….he doesn’t….and he won’t!!!
Times are very strange right now. Go in the basement. Wear a mask. Bars not open. Bars open. Fifty-percent on restaurants…you know what I mean. I’m trying to move my mother from West Palm Beach to Cleveland to be with family. The Chinese Virus has caused delays. Mother has some health issues. My Mother is my rock….she’s my very best friend…I am lost without her and not ashamed to admit it. Mom is all alone….going through the Chinese Virus lockdown and health issues all by herself. As I write this mother is waiting for the results of a biopsy she had on Friday. This battle has been going on for awhile. The results of a bad x-ray were not expected.
My mother has never played the victim. She has never blinked an eye or shed a tear. Her only concern has been for the health of me..her only child. It’s the the ultimate sacrifice of unselfishness. Do not judge courage by appearance or stature. I’m 6’2 and 265 pounds and my mother is bent over at 4’11 but stands much taller than me in soul and character. If you believe in the next level, which I do, concentrate on the soul. You can go to the gym to work out your body yet the soul is eternal and needs the same attention. Make every day and moment count.
Last Friday was very emotional for anyone that has a heart and a conscious. It was the nineteenth anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center by Islamic terrorists. One of my most vivid memories of that time was actually September 12, 2001 and beyond. No one cared about what color your skin was or what God you worshiped. There was one race….the human race. People were flying American flags outside their cars. Today there are those that choose to burn and stomp on that very same flag. The police and fire departments across the nation were hailed as heroes. Today they are randomly attacked by members of Black Live Matter and Antifa. I’m tired of the disrespect and rioting and vandalism. Our country has been taken over from within by various social terrorist organizations. There comes a time when people have had enough and they start to fight back to protect their family and property. That time is now.
It’s not going to get any better until we get tough. This past weekend two Los Angeles police officers were shot in the face for doing nothing but protecting citizens of their city. These thugs and animals then proceeded to block the entry of the emergency vehicles to the local hospital while yelling “We hope they die.” This is not “protesting.” It’s the deepest level of barbaric behavior that has no place in a civilized society.
How many more buildings will be set on fire? How many more stores will be destroyed? How many more members of the Police will be injured during these senseless criminal activities? What we allow we teach. It’s time for this parade of fools to end. Let’s take back our country. Let’s really show others that we never forgot!!
In these times of conflict and disagreement I am confident we can all agree on one thing: We’ve never seen a shit show like this in our entire lives. I remember when I was in college and I was a “rebel” and anyone over the age of thirty was disconnected with reality. The truth is I was young, immature, uneducated, drank shitty beer, had a 32 inch waist and a full head of hair. What I didn’t have was a man friend that had to wear a bra and put electrical tape over his freaking nipples. You are not “expressing yourself.” You are an attention whore that wants people to stare at you while wondering “Are those really tits???”
This is ANTIFA. They are bad people that don’t bathe, refuse to work and enjoy the smell of urine. Everyone has the right to peacefully assemble. The key word here is “peacefully.” It’s not a peaceful situation when you are walking down the middle of the road with your other friends that smell like urine and you’re shooting fireworks at cars. Cars go down the street. They have for years. If you do not desire to be struck by the aforementioned vehicles then I would suggest moving your man friends in brassieres to the sidewalk. Make sure not to step on any dirty syringes that your social terrorist brothers and sisters may have dropped when launching a brick into a Saks and then taking a Gucci bag while screaming something about oppression.
Let me continue this honesty parade by addressing ANTIFA/BLM: you are NOT victims. You are criminals and an embarrassment to your family. There’s a reason why you are 25 and still not sitting with the grown ups on Thanksgiving. Here’s some advice from DANNYLAND: Put down the clove cigarette and the green hair dye and pick up a job application. Teenagers ride skateboards. Adults drive cars. Why not try being home before the sun goes down? That’s what people do that don’t like tear gas. You sleep on a freaking mattress….you don’t set it on fire and kick it down a street while trying to balance your backpack.
I could go on but Hillary Clinton just showed up wearing latex gloves and wanting to go for a “quiet walk in the park.” I’ll be putting electrical tape on my nipples and looking for my will.
