Saved By Quick Thinking

My bad hair frustrations were averted by the advice of a coworker. I used Head and Shoulders first then followed by 3X. My scalp feels squeaky clean and my hair feels soft and smells like mans hair should smell.

Now if I could only find some Gillette Odor Shield and hide it life would be good.

Ladies keep your man happy and don't take his man soap. You have millions of overpriced shampoos and washes that are available in seconds. Why acceptable man soap is in such short supply in NYC is unknown.

The Proctor and Gamble Blues

Recently, I went to the local drug store to buy body wash. Living in a large household it is impossible for others not to know what personal hygiene products one has. Unfortunately, my adult step son discovered that Gillette Odor Control body wash gets the job done. Making it worse the rest of the family discovered it too. There should be a house rule preventing women from taking mans soap. Lord knows I avoid the Mrs over priced shampoo and conditioner.

I went to my local drug store and they were short of my beloved Proctor and Gamble products. I purchased a hip and cool brand that is used by the 20 somethings. For the first time in my life I felt dirtier after a shower
than in the shower. My hair feels like a bad raccoon coat and smells like an industrial accident. Even when I sweat it doesn't smell that bad.

I am so embarrassed, that I ran to the local drug store at work. My boss said it can't be that bad. Funny but her hair doesn't feel like a bad toupee and smell like a landfill. Once again the drug store was short of Proctor and Gamble products, but I found the last bottle of 3X. I am hoping this can take the stink out of my hair and make it feel human.

Moral of the story, products marketed to 20 somethings usually suck. If it touches my hair its got to be Proctor and Gamble.

Ladies unless you like calling your husband Yul stay away from the man soap.

A Sick and Abnormal Lifestyle

I admire those with a hard work ethic. In a normal religion having a good work ethic is a basic value. Once again my brother the Frummie has annoyed me. It is not as if he does not earn money as he has two jobs that earn him low six figures. His useless wife has not held gainful employment for years.

At the center of this idiotic lifestyle is a sense of entitlement. If you aren't using your car much naturally they will pester every relative. They have no concern about the impact of their lifestyle quirks on others and act as if they are center of the Universe.

Ordinarily, I don't work overtime. Unfortunately, the Diblassio/ Obama economy has impacted my girlfriend's home and I have to pitch in. When I do work overtime, I sleep at her house because the Saturday commute would require me to leave at 2AM. The extra two hours sleep make a difference.

Unfortunately, there is yet another emergency and he requires yet another car. I had to return home and barely made it. I fell asleep in the foyer. The Sabbath ends late and of course he needs something but has multiple errands related to his bizarre lifestyle and can only make it at 2AM. He needs a favor, but shows zero consideration for anyone. Has the notion of renting a car ever occurred to  the frummies. My sisters financial situation is much worse, but he comes with his hands out and feels entitled because he is frum.

I am jealous of my friend whose brother is in jail. At least his sibling has a work ethic and is not annoying. My brother in laws has a gay sibling who is a more balanced considerate person and is culturally literate.
Frummies are inconsiderate cultural illiterates who are disgraces and should keep company with their own kind.

My brother has asked to meet my family. I told him that I do not want to subject my family to his lifestyle.
I could have purchased another car long ago, but frummies don't respect relatives property or time. Why should I bother with another car when he drives mine into the ground and will take the next one.

I rewrote my will and cut him out and explained the car was not worth it.

Clueless leftist morons

I want to point out the usual boorishness of leftists. A leftist from North Africa who is married to a woman from the same region hinted I am a racist because I haven't dated Black or Muslim women. I want to point out this is likely incorrect as I have dated Dominican and Albanian women in college. Ironically a more serious dating situation was with a couple of Cuban women who by Judaic law turned out to be Jews.

First of all choice of a romantic partner is a strictly personal matter. Anyone can make choices according to the dictates of whatever. My Guyanese family is mostly Hindu with some Christians. I do not have to defend my my choices to a Muslim person who married a Muslim from the same country. In fact I really don't care who is in a relationship with whom.

Police Brutality and You

I want to talk about Police Brutality and some common sense points not being discussed by ignorant far left media types. There is no discussion about the role of the conduct of the citizen in any of these cases. The focus has been incorrectly placed on the police. Zero attention has been placed on the conduct of the citizen
in these cases. Unfortunately, I have plenty of experience in these situations as small town Barney Fife cops stopped me more than twenty times while living in Northern VT. For the record I am alabaster white and have green-blue eyes.

1) When requested to stop. Do so
2) Answer all questions to the best of your ability.
3) Never display a bad attitude or challenge the police.

A typical stop outside a KFC in Vermont.

"Some ID"
I provide ID as requested
"You are a long way from home. What are you doing here."
" I am getting a bite to eat and JP's is closed at this hour"
This response was said calmly and demonstrates local knowledge.
" You work around here let me see your ID"
I present my ID.
"How come you don't have a local drivers license."
"My job is temporary and can end in three months at which time I will return home. "

None of my answers were disrespectful. I think I made a joke about liking the biscuits better than the chicken. There is a difference between laughing at someone and making a joke all can share as a common  experience.

There were times Police questioned me at the local Park. Had I been dressed like Steve Urkel this would not have happened. However reading a book on a Park Bench with a Diet Mountain Dew at 4 or in a green space near a train station is not common. My responses were always respectful including once where I got locked out with no shoes and was tiptoeing through an alley in the dark to get to my car for the spare.

Always remain calm and if you think your rights have been violated tell it to a judge. You are never going to
win a verbal argument with a cop even if they are 100% wrong.

This does not excuse excessive force but in almost every video on this subject the victim is out of control. Lefties exacerbate racial angles, but the real issue is composure. Your responsibility when stopped by the police is to remain calm and answer questions honestly. I got stopped on my way back from the grocery store at 3AM. The police asked where I am coming from and I told them Price Chopper to buy toilet paper
and some Captain Crunch. I joked how I went for those two items and ended up with a few more items. There was a conversation about Liverwurst which is a NYC thing among old timers. It is even referenced in Welcome Back Kotter.

Do not debate search and seizure or probable cause. Even if you are criminal the penalties are so light that
you will likely plea bargain anyway to disorderly conduct or a fine.

Thank You Jonathan Martin

I want to thank Jonathan Martin for stepping into the spotlight. There are plenty of those who suffered in shame and silence and I was one of those people. It took courage to step out and place a name on a shameful reality many of us endure each and every day in silence and shame.

There was a peer who was from an earlier era and just retired. I explained the workplace was much different then. Bosses expected and it was unspoken that gross and inappropriate behavior was tolerated. Sexual harassment laws were on the books, but it took the dubious Anita Hill story to put it on the map. Following your abuser through jobs and maintaining contact for years does not make sense. I avoid my abuser and would run in the other direction.

Some of the things I endured

Unique rules applied only to one person among 60.
Social Isolation being a member of a ten person team excluded from meetings parties. Not being allowed to talk with anyone about work related issues other than a single team member.
Abusing Supervisory Review Process.
Group ridicule if one had a different opinon
Threats of violence
Ethnic jokes and commentary about my alleged political views.
Manufactured complaints and tampering with evidence in disciplinary proceedings.
Command Chain lunacy. One needs your bosses permission to talk to her boss about the abuse.

The tragic element of my story is I suffered in silence. What I suffered was real and people would say keep your head down or you bring it on yourself. Would anyone say this to a person in a domestic violence situation.

Luckily for me people outside the office knew my name. My abuser went too far and costly EEO and labor arbitration made the matter public. I settled and went on to live another day. Management still had a bounty
on my head. However smarter ones knew to steer clear as I would fight back.

Eventually a new regime took over and workplace bullying is not tolerated. The new boss is humane and more concerned with accomplishing goals and objectives than grudge matches. I never thought I would see a director whose DNA does not seem to condone brutality. Do your best and serve the public each and every day is all she asks.

A close friend from my earliest years visited. I avoided her as she worked up the chain to levels I can only dream of. She noticed I did not stop by and avoided contact. I would be somewhere else by design. Eventually we spoke via email. I explained that I wanted her to remember me as I was. She is familiar enough with me to know something is wrong. I told her about the workplace bullying and she was horrified
and asked me why I didn't call her immediately. I explained men are not supposed to complain they are supposed to endure. One shouldn't hide behind a big sisters skirt. She asked around and found the situation
was far worse than I described. One supervisor told her people have committed suicide for less than I endured.  Another told me that the abuse was so bad she was amazed I didn't snap.

After Jonathan Martin what happened to me and others has a name. I will not sit in the shadows or hide in the closet. After the Martin case I decided to be up front. This place was horrible and I paid the price to make it better. I do so to explain that nobody should ever suffer in silence.

Thank you Jonathan Martin for making this issue something that all of us can understand.

chasing a phantom

Over the last few days I have been driven at work on a project. I haven't been myself and it certainly is not pressure from my boss who told me to take off. I am fairly modest and I was highly accomplished and productive before I arrived in NYC. Oddly on the second day of training I was already faster than my mentor who was pissed and compared me to a chimp. I was given a new mentor and the speed was evident in week two where I was in the top 20% . This is not surprising knowing my vocation was logistics and my entire career was based on making swift decisions. There were some bad times in Vermont but they mostly involved a small group who tried to cover for themselves.

When I got to NYC, it was a very cruel and terrible place. I experienced work place bullying and it went on for years. A single manager for reasons unknown loathed me and subjected me to absurd levels of scrutiny and ridicule. This was not unusual and up until the most current changes it was tolerated and condoned at top levels. Over time the abuser self destructed  and her henchmen were sent away or muted. I earned a street credibility as a thorough tough pro who earned his stripes.

Fast forward in time management shakes up the joint and I am stuck with the henchmen. The most annoying part is bragging about skills they never had. I remind people those who brag the most know the least.

I retain much of my persona from previous jobs. Snitches are shunned unless the matter involves public safety or taking bribes. I could care less if a peer has a beverage on her desk other than water. Most matters are resolved between coworkers and I am okay with that.

After three years of workplace bullying I am not apt to forgive members of a mob who mistreated me. Making matters worse I have been fixing their errors and had I made any of these errors I would have been suspended or fired. Oddly, I forgave the supervisor who was responsible long ago. The manager ordering it
threatened his job. Ideally, a person would say no, but there are consequences. This boss is guilty of nothing
more than a human weakness that most of us have as humans. I am far less charitable to the peers who were part of a mob. They were not threatened in anyway and a few distanced themselves and were supportive in private.

You hear the stereotype about the lazy government worker. I am at my desk early and late. I usually take lunch and work at the same time. In fact I eat while I work at points throughout the day. My productivity is high and I am self motivated. All of us bring life experiences from elsewhere to our jobs. Apparently, I fused sweatshop, logistics and several other ideas into my job. I chased and broke several records, but it was hallow. There is nothing I have to prove and I earned my stripes long ago. I am over the maximum vacation time and my boss told me to relax and take a day.

There is no phantom for me to chase except those we create for ourselves.

The Failure of the Jewish Community

One of the greatest failures of the Jewish Community is the refusal to discuss where Jew hatred comes from.
Other groups such as gays and Blacks have very little difficulty pointing out where bigots come from, Jews
have great difficulty discussing any type of bigots other than the White Power/Nazi type

The most obvious place that these bigots come from is the Muslim community. Not all Muslims have this obsession, but enough do. In general some of this is our fault. Some of us spend way too much time trying
to build bridges. In general, I don't discuss politics at work and the insistence of some to ask questions is annoying. The usual quip that Jews are supposed to be liberal is a common theme. The concept of intellectual independence is unfamiliar to recent immigrants.

There  are a handful of right wing kooks. Usually, one will see them hanging around Stormfront or more commonly in any gathering of Ron Paul fans. The latter pretend they are conservative, but you can find them at OWS  repeating lefty themes. Less common are the obsessive Pat Buchanan types that can be found at OWS or at left wing rallies.

The most pernicious and vile  Jew obsessed lunatics are Marxists. Jews who dig Marx are the moral equivalent of Capos. We have seen plenty of hateful signs and rhetoric, but the Jewish community fails to point out the tie multiple times. The truth is Marxism has a religious dimension and those who pretend they
Jews only do so to advance the criminal faith. No doubt the litigious loser will threaten another lawsuit.
When addressing these lunatics one should put the term Rabbi in quotation marks. Perhaps this will be grounds for the next lawsuit.

On this blog we seldom write about Israel. It comes up in passing when obsessed and intemperate Marxists
have behavioral issues. I did not blog on Gaza , because others cover the subject. While I support Israel, I am far more apt to sped time in Guyana. I have yet to hear Poultry direct any verbiage towards this aspect
of my persona. Lefties have made a mess out of Guyana, but as in Vermont I remain quiet. I am on vacation or passing through and locals can attend their own matters quite well.

RIP James Garner

Thank you James Garner for your many hours of entertainment including the Rockford Files and the Great Escape. I even enjoyed the commercials. I prefer the grity style of Kojak to the smart Alec Rockford. However, it is clearly better than 90% of the shows produced today.

Leftist Boorishness

When a Tea Party supporter allegedly uses the N word to Rep Cummings the media makes a big deal. When terrorists acting in the name of Islam kill gratuitously we get the familiar messages that not all Muslims are terrorists. When a single Pseudostinian is killed in a revenge attack it makes headlines. When Jews are killed or persecuted by Muslims or leftists the media reports it in passing.

Part of the blame for this mess belongs to Jews themselves. We are too busy to go on the offensive and apologetic when provoked. No doubt Pam Geller and such could create an Islamic snuff film. We could show crazed Muslims beheading Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg and others great hits. We could even show the famed Paliwood greatest fakes staring Mr Green Helmet. 

In the USA there is a concept of civility. We leave our political BS at the door and do our jobs. Those on the left seem to forget this.  I am not here to debate foreign policy or Obamacare. I say very little about the crisis on the border on the job. The sole exception to this was when the policy changed to adjudicate gay marriage cases my support was vocal. The notion that I as a civil servant, should treat any applicant with anything less than my best is offensive.

I get annoyed with lefties nosing around my library at work. What I read is my own affair. I have never heard of a Conservative doing anything similar to a leftist. I am more than perplexed at lefties whose entire history is rife with treason pointing the finger at my patriotism. Funny, I don't see any other group subjected to this idiocy. 

The End Of A Faith

Israel will fall in my lifetime. The culprits will be directly related to a class of lazy religious imbeciles whose behavior ranges from boorish to treasonous. The state can not and should not permit a lazy depraved lifestyle on the dole for generations.

Some of these culprits claim Israel is an abomination and they don't take money from it. They merely take food, medical and every other type of subsidy under the sun. Then they turn around and bad mouth the State
and the wider community. Sorry but mendicants should know better than to lecture those that support this lifestyle of sloth.

These groups do not functionally educate their children to a level where they can be gainfully employed. They
trash the wider community while sticking their hand out for charity. The level of child abuse and domestic violence are high. One community continues to rally behind a convicted pedophile and threaten the victim.

In a rational world some of the benefit fraud would trigger RICO type actions. Unfortunately our political leaders ignore our laws due to block voting.

Usual leftist BS

Predictably, our friend Poultry has been at it about Gaza. Arabs die by the score in Iraq and Syria. The left really is not interested until its sainted contrived ethnicity is involved. The lunatics at ISIS may be genocidal but they speak a truth. There is no such animal as Syrians, Jordanians, Iraqis and Pseudosinians. Given that Arabs have an abundance of colonized land this Pseudostine obsession boils down to leftist repackaging of Judenfrei real estate.

Israel has made generous offers and has shown restraint. Russia leveled Grozny for far less than the Arab provocations. Hammas overplayed the rocket bit and Israel adapted.

Araba, Anatolians and Turks need to get off of Kurdish land. Unlike Pseudostinians Kurds are a genuine indigenous people and far more deserving of a state. Arabs also need to carve out enclaves for Berbers
and Copts who also have a better case than contrived Arab ethnicities.

If lefties really cared about the folks in Gaza they would cease the bait and switch game and let Egypt annex the area. The residents of Gaza are Egyptian, but were morphed for political expediency.
