Losing Their Mind Over the Election

The 2016 Election is No Joke


Political HumorI normally stay away from Religion and Politics.  They are neither funny nor are they something that people can discuss without becoming defensive. People speak to be heard, not to be understood. There is a difference.

I take it back. It is funny. Funny to watch people say they are opened minded but then I watch them do everything but be open-minded. There is something about these two topics that cause normally well adjusted people to lose their mind. Take this recent US election for example.

People are loosing their mind on both sides of the political extreme. I’m not talking about the riots, protests, etc. I’m talking about everyday conversations between people.

A basic human nature is to be right. One of the hardest things for us is to admit we were wrong or that we might be concerned about our pick. Right now, I’m watching folks dig their heels in on the pick they made.

Let’s take one side. Those that voted for Trump. Everyone has a right to vote for who they wanted. That is what makes America great. The problem is, we have created this mentality of “us vs them”. When this happens and people feel attacked, they defend their candidate at all costs.  Here are two things I feel are funny or at least ironic…

A) Those Trump supporters that are mad that people who are bashing Donald Trump – Reason I find this funny? Many of these same people spent the last 8 years viciously attacking Obama. Talk about ironic. I also find it sad. They don’t even see how funny it is that they can dish it out, but can’t take it.

B) These same folks are the same ones that just a year ago, wanted any other Republican but Trump. For a year they bashed him and only got in his camp if you will once he kept winning. I laugh every time I hear them act as if he has been their #1 guy from the beginning.

laughing-faceListen, there are many folks that are scared. Each day something new happens. This will continue. Some of it will be good and some of it will be bad. But one thing is for sure, the next 4 years will be full of a lot of things. One thing I know, we will be laughing one way or another.  It might be a nervous laugh, it might be an ironic laugh or it might be a full on belly laugh due to the stuff Trump says.

Now, I’m not trying to be political. I’m just pointing out how this election has caused folks to lose their mind. Common sense has left the building. I hope it comes back soon. While I find it funny to watch, I also find it sad. Sad that people aren’t open to hearing each other. If we don’t start hearing the good and the bad but more importantly the opportunities we have as a nation, I feel we as a nation will become a joke to the rest of the world. Oh wait, I think we already have….  🙁

So don’t be surprised if I pop in on the humor that is Trump. I only want the best for our country, but I have a feeling it is going to be an interesting ride so we might as well buckle in and have some fun.

How to Explain Politics to Your Kids

The 2016 Elections Might Have Your Kids Asking

*** Warning…DO NOT share this with you kids. LOL   Keep Reading and Find Out Why!
2016 electionsA little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?”

Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me Capitalism. Your Mom, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the Government. We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the People. The nanny, we’ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him the Future.

Now, think about that and see if that makes sense.”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.

Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.”

The father says, “Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about”.

The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in Deep Shit.”


Don’t Forget to Laugh Each and Everyday!!

~~Till Our Next Cute Joke of the Day~~

Tax Day ~~ Try and Control Your Excitement

Knock Knock…

Who’s there?

The Tax Man

Ah, there’s nothing funny about that??!

Yea, I know…  🙁


Yesterday I discussed how I put off my taxes until the last minute. Typical procrastinator action. And from some of the feedback I got, I wasn’t alone. There are tons of other procrastinators out there. But only a few that procrastinated on taxes till the last day. Although, many did wait until this past weekend.

Is there anything funny about taxes? Not really, it is a necessary evil driven by others.

Supposedly if we stop paying them our schools would collapse, our highways would fall apart, police and firemen would be home sitting on couches eating bon bons.

Some are mad that only 50% of the population pays taxes.

Some are mad that the rich don’t pay enough.

The rich are mad that they worked their ass off for what they made, why should they be punished

Envy is every where. Rich are envious of the poor not paying anything and the poor are envious of the rich that they make so much.

Someone the other day was upset that they are barely making it and owe so much money, meanwhile someone that made the same amount got back a check for almost $5000 while the other one owed $3000. One feeling punished for not having kids and the other being rewarded for having them.

Tax code ~ tax breaks ~ got to love them.

Personally, I’m not taking sides. But I do agree with everyone, taxes suck. And like it our not, they aren’t going away anytime soon. And today I will be bummed since I owe.

But since my blog is about finding humor in the bad in our life. There will be tears of laughter damn it, and not tears of watching my money go to Uncle Sam.


Ok, maybe I can do at least a 2 to 1 ratio. There you go. For each 3 tears, 2 will be from laughing and 1 for thinking about my money keeping the teachers, policemen, & firemen working. And I guess if a fourth one falls, I’ll try and remember that someday it will fix that bumpy road I drive over each day.

Oh, and if you haven’t hit send yet on your Turbo Tax…….You might want to do that….

And if you are filing by mail…..Yea, have fun in those lines
