Republican Sluts — The Party of Political Promiscuity


unfaithful repulicans


When it comes to political chastity, the Republican Party has no business wearing a white gown.

Oh sure, last week they put on a beautiful wedding.  It was lovely.  The bride resembled a flower of innocence.  She escorted the perfectly-pressed Mitt Romney down the aisle, all the way up to the altar of their party’s presidential nomination.

But before reluctantly tying this uneasy knot and finally settling on the class nerd, the couple went through an ugly courtship period.  While dating Mitt, these same Republicans pretty much screwed the entire football team on the side.

Indeed — before being forced to tie the bonds of politial matrimony, these same Republicans slept with just about every living and breathing soul — both in and out of their class.  They sucked every cock.  Every hole was luciously filled.  Their pre-convention gang bang included men and women, Blacks and Whites.  Call it an orgy of desperation.

Let’s go back and look at this bride’s recent past, shall we?  A warning — it’s not pretty.

LOVE INTEREST #1 — Before the Republican Primaries began last summer, party faithful courted none other than Donald Trump.  Incredibly, the party classroom was so void of a real charmer, they had to look way down the hall where they found an egotistical rich kid, who was only too happy to enjoy a quick romp with the cheerleader.  After Trump had his way and milked a few months of cheap publicity out of the relationship, he pretty much spurned her further advances and went back to being the class jerk.

If the Presidential Election Were Held Today

political symbols photo


So far, I’ve watched every single hour of every single night of both national party conventions.

I follow this practice, not because I aspire to become the ideal civic-minded citizen.  My motives are much more selfish.  Frankly, I follow politics because it’s great entertainment.  It’s the national theater of our society — and there’s a performance every day and night.  Best of all, it’s completely free to watch and enjoy.  Then, there’s the added bonus of participating in the final act by voting for the candidate of your choice.

Indeed, I like to be entertained.  Why would anyone watch a so-called “reality television” show — so much of which is phoney and scripted — when there are bona fide reality shows running day and night which just so happen to have the direction of the country as the storyline?

Yes, politics is great theater.  And I want a front row seat.

Lon Bronson All-Star Band — Best Free Show in Las Vegas


Lon Bronson Band in Las Vegas


Las Vegas is home to many of the best musicians and performers and in the world.

These artists play shows night after night on the Las Vegas Strip.  Casino showrooms are loaded with great singers, guitarists, piano players, trumpet players, backup vocalists, string players, and drummers.

But let’s face it.  Playing the same set of songs night after night gets old pretty quick.  No matter how great the show is, these are supremely-talented performers with creative minds.  Everyone needs to break the mold on occasion.

Incredibly, several of Las Vegas’ top musicians — virtually all of whom play the expensive headliner shows at the biggest casinos — gather from time to time and put on an impromptu jamming session.  Led by longtime bandleader and trumpeter Lon Bronson, his “All-Star Band” often has a dozen or more of the best session musicians in the city on a single stage.

I mean, where else can you see a show with a ten-piece horn section in a showroom that holds a couple of hundred people?

The band sure isn’t doing this for the money.

That’s because — the show is free.

That’s right — FREE.

In a throwback to the good old days of yesteryear when Las Vegas casinos really understood the entertainment business, when they packed their lounges with some of the best acts in the world and then invited everyone to flood in and enjoy the party at no cost (aside from the added gambling revenue), Stations Casinos has decided to revive that old formula.

The Changing Face of Online Gaming and How to Pick the Best



Gambling is no longer what it used to be at one time. While purists might still believe in travelling to Vegas or one of the major gambling destinations of the world, the fact remains that more and more people are looking at convenient ways to indulge in the thrill of money-making.

The drama that revolved around gambling is thus a thing of the past. There’s no need to dress up for a night out on the tables, or the impromptu talks one would have with total strangers. Gambling is now more intimate in every sense possible. You can enjoy a game of slots while lounging in the buff on your bed or whip out your phone and start earning at the tap of a few buttons. Online casinos are on the rise, are not just a trend, and have transformed into a way of life that has revolutionised the gambling industry for the better.


However, unlike a land-based casino, where you can get an idea of the environment just by looking at how busy or deserted it is, online casinos require a little bit of analysis. To start with, check for reviews and whether a casino is licensed or not. Just like there are scams nowadays in every form of business, several illegal online casinos exist on the internet. And no matter how good the proposition, it’s better to stand clear of them at all costs.

Once you have a few leading online casinos on your list, it’s time to look at their catalogue and make sure they offer a variety of games. It doesn’t matter if you play them or not, because preferences change and you might one day start liking them all of a sudden. In the simplest of statements, more is better when it comes of games on an online casino.



Next up, dig deeper to see what all special events the casinos hold. All the casinos have games, but the real kicker is the special events that some hold, which are not only profitable for the players, but also the perfect opportunity to test your skills against other gamblers. One of the very best of these is Casumo, an online casino with enough bells and whistles to really make it stand out from the pack. From poker events to blackjack bonus card event, promotions like these mean that the feature-rich online casino is looking to get players involved and create an ambience that is a lot more exciting and entertaining than a regular casino.

When we look at the popularity of online casinos, slots are at the very core of it all. At one time, slots were considered childish and meant primarily for senior players, or those who did not know how to play card games. Now, online slots are a walking talking entertainment centre with theme-based options that bring alive movies and drama in the most fun way possible. Moreover, they cater to all budgets and tastes, thus becoming the most played online games.

While there is new technology being tested regularly by online casinos, and we already see VR and 3D being integrated into games, there are two aspects that you must consider before joining an online casino. Fist, check for their welcome bonus package.

Remember, the casinos want you as much as you want them, and they will layout a red carpet for you. Secondly, make sure you have all the accounts in order and read up on withdrawal and deposit rules to avoid unnecessary issues later.

Gambling responsibly can be a lot of fun. With the industry welcoming players from all walks of life, its transformation into something unique will only help it expand more in the future.

Meeting Monte — How a Chance Encounter Inspired Me To Get Healthy

Monte at BARGE

Monte (August 2012)


This is the story of a man I barely know and how that man changed my life.

It is the story of someone I rarely see.  It is the story of a person I converse with perhaps no more than once or twice per year.  It is the story of a man who is probably more of an acquaintance than a close freind.

Yet it’s also the story of how a seemingly insignificant encounter in our lives can inspire us to change ourselves and motivate us toward self-improvement.  It’s also revealing that such inspiration has no expiration date — proving that something which truly impacts us can instigate changes which may manifest themselves many years later.

Yes, this really happened.  It happened to me.  I would like to tell you this story.
