My Soapbox Rant!

Updated on November 7, 2012
Source

Alcoholics...

Why do they want to be anonymous when they are getting help, but when they are getting their drunk on, they are as loud and obnoxious as can be. One would think they would be happy to let the world know they are getting help, that's a good thing, and get their drunk on in private, because it's embarrassing...at least I know I would.

Breaking The Law...

I am not one to break the law, not just because I'm a total wuss, but because I'm scared to go jail/prison. I'm as soft as Charmin...and just as squeezable too. I would be holding onto some one's belt loop and calling them daddy in no time, being sold for cigarettes and getting rammed in the kiester on a regular basis.

Common Sense...

Why do they call it common sense when in all reality, it's not all that common. Most people nowadays are complete idiots...I'm not hating, I'm just saying. Try talking to a random stranger on the street and see how the conversation goes.

Bumper Stickers...

Do these people really believe other motorist care about their beliefs and what they have to say? How I feel about abortion isn't going to change because the nitwit on the road in front of me driving the beat up jalopy with a personalized license plate which reads "Ass Man" is for or against it.

Religious Fanatics...

These screwballs drive me nuts, religion is supposed to be about peace and love, but these freaks are all about judgment and damnation. The people passing the most judgment are the people with the most skeletons in their closet, trying to deflect. It doesn't matter what God you follow, there are some of these people in every sect. The crazy thing about it, is there are atheists that are this way too...so much for being smarted than everyone else.

Political People...

First things first, there is no such thing as an honest politician who is for the people, Democrat or Republican it doesn't matter, they all have their own agenda...and trust me, we are not part of it. The bottom line is it comes down to the lesser of the two evils when voting, who makes you less sick.

Cartoons...

Have you tried watching some of these newer cartoons, they are all based on a card game or a bad acid trip, this stuff is crazy. Man how I miss the cartoons from the eighties...they were awesome.

Drugs...

Now I'm not talking about marijuana here, I'm talking about all the other crap people are putting into their bodies...especially the man made crap. Are you people nuts, what the poop is going on in your head that makes you think it would be a good idea to smoke and/or ingest some of this garbage. Meth, spice, bath salts...really! If I want to take a trip without leaving the house, I'll watch the Travel channel.

Reality TV...

Why do people watch this crap...do they really believe it's reality? It you want to see true reality, just wake up. If we were to really film "reality" it would be pretty boring and would be canceled after just a couple of episodes...trust me.

Disciplining Children...

These little bastards scare me...they're all crazy. Whose bright idea was it to count when a kid does something wrong, who in their right mind thought this would be a good idea. I say bring back the wooden spoons and rubber slippers, let parents beat some common sense and manners into these brats. I'm not saying beat them like a pinata, but a firm smack on the backside speaks volumes...trust me.


OK, time for me to get off my soapbox and to stop bothering you good people with all my nonsense.

Michael
