About This Guy

This popped up on my facebook a few months ago.  I was supposed to wrote something about it but I didn’t then.  I have a second today.

On the one hand, this is how I deal with the police.  I get pulled over often.  I’ve never been shot before.   I am polite, respectful and I know how to talk to people.  I’ve even written about it.  Kind of like this person.

But you don’t see me getting online and acting a damn fool about it.  You don’t see me getting online and disparaging a whole movement that has pulled together to make actual social change just because I made it through one traffic stop.

I don’t have cable but I know that typeface when I see it. It sure isn’t MSNBC.  You’re a plant.  You get a platform to say things like “Racism is Dead, just look at me, I’m on Fox News” and you milk it.  You look over at them and you smile and they smile back at you.  But there’s a lesson you haven’t learned yet.  It’s a lesson that I had to learn a long time ago; a lesson that Ben Carson is learning now.  Maybe Stacey Dash will learn the lesson at the same time as you.  Maybe when you and her are sitting at the same cafeteria table in the back near the bathroom at the Fox News Building then you’ll figure it out.  Let us know when you do, we’ll be playing dominoes over here at this other table.  But we’re not dealing you in until next game.

 

#WorkoutWednesday: We are All this Cyclist

I mean, we’ve all been here before.  Anyone who uses clips was once this cyclist.  Sometimes I’m still this cyclist.

I’ve been talking to my girlfriend about cycling and i am positive that this will be her as soon as she gets her clips.

And every one of us has the horror story of hitting the brakes and putting the left foot down and then falling over on the right foot.

 

If you’re wondering, there is a way for this not to happen:
