    heres the crazy thing about america 

    it’s yours for the taking.

    we want hamburgers with hotdogs and potato chips on it.

    there was a time when you couldnt go to a drive thru and say I WANT THE NUMBER 27 and there it was in your bag with fries and a Coke.

    there was a time when blacks couldnt drink from the same water fountains as the whites. not even in Washington DC!

    there was a time when there was no internet, thus there was no pornography. but Al Gore changed all that.

    there was a time when Al Gore was the president but then there was a time when the Supreme Court said,  geez guys, stop counting the ballots!

    there was a time this very blog would get 40-50 comments on every post, like no problem.

    there was a time when i could say in a post Show Me Your Pajamas and some smart alecks would ball up their onesies and take a picture

    but there was also a time when someone curvy and beautiful would slink into their bippy top and busblog panties and take that picture too.

    what im getting at is everything changes, mostly for the better, but there are pitfalls and booby traps and landmines and accidents

    there are detours and sabotages and ecoli and brain tumors

    but for every one of those there are also giant breakthroughs in technology, art, love, and rock n roll.

    i know things look dire right now and the next Big Answer might not come from the USA

    but odds are it will.

    probs from me.

    x + the blasters = the knitters 

    that was “see how we are” sung by John Doe

    with Dave Alvin of the Blasters on lead guitar

    originally off the X album “see how we are” – 1986.

    their sixth album.

    how good are most peoples 6th album?

    this good: Alvin wrote one of the best X songs ever on that album

    “4th of July”

    what ever happened, i apologize
    so dry your tears baby, and walk outside
    it’s the 4th of July

    hi first day of summer 


    there are laws that make no sense.

    at the top of the list is the fact that men (in america) can walk around with no shirt on but women cant.

    how is that not sexism?

    isnt that the dictionary definition of sexism? lets see:

    Definition of SEXISM

    1 : prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially : discrimination against women
    2 : behavior, conditions, or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex

    other day i was at wrigley field. holiest place i know. also, despite its proximity to Lake Michigan, a park that can get hot in the summertime especially if youre sitting in the sun in the bleachers.

    so just like all my heroes: harry caray, bill veeck, and martin luther king jr., i took my shirt off


    but if you’re a woman, you just look on longingly and think about the olden times when women were equal to men.

    people are all up in arms about comedian adam corolla saying something thats sexist, but they’re totally cool with the u.s. government being sexist. not sure i understand that.

    in eurpoe they have this figured out. just like health care. just like summer vacations. just like long lunches. just like the quality of beer. and i dont know about you, but as a proud American, i hate being second to europe at anything. but apparently the lawmakers are all, “europe? lol. as if.”

    sure at first people would be all omg look at that lady with no shirt off. but they said that when they first saw a black man with a white woman holding hands. they said that when they first saw bob dylan with an electric guitar. they said that when they first saw barack obama at the podium that said prez of the world.

    and superfast we got over it.

    i yearn for a first day of summer when all of God’s children, blacks and whites, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, men and women, will be able to join hands and say, let me help you take that shirt off, its too hot.

    and no one will get arrested for a sexist law.
