RIP Don Rickles and Jerry Lewis

Brilliant comedians I met in passing when working in the Catskills. They were nice people off stage or at least that was my experience.

I want to use Gene Zitver of Harry's Place to illustrate the mental rot on the left. Nazis and Confederate apologists
are subject to the same first Amendment rights so long as they are peaceful. Our individual rights are guaranteed so long as the expressions are peaceful.

Zitvers responses to Questions reveals his rather shallow understanding of a complex subject. Left wing events are organized and led by militant communist front groups. He is somehow once again claiming the hyper violent BLM and Antifa are not reflective of the counter protesters. In the wacky world of the Bon Vivant a single person allegedly
taunting Elijah Cummings with the N word at A TEA Party event is somehow worse than the raw unhinged Jew hate and calls to criminality found at OWS or BLM gatherings.

Gene pretends the hate from the left aimed at Jews, Cops and so forth is quaint. Embattled Jews on campus get zero help from Zitver who pretends left wing antisemitism doesn't exist. The little help embattled Jews on campus get is from David Horowitz and Michelle Malkin.

I support the statement of Trump. There is plenty of blame to go around and despite the Obama support BLM is a frequent instigator of violence. ANTIFA is even worse in that respect. Unlike the Bon Vivant Zitver, I do boots on the ground work.

Zitver also rationalized Obamas refusal to say Islamic terror until Trump made him spin a convoluted word salad. He remained silent when the Obama administration described attacks on a Kosher Market in Paris as random violence.

If Zitver thinks BLM and ANTIFA are benign groups he is either senile or a Bon Vivant Cocktail hour shut in. One needs look no further than the shallow hypocrisy of Zitver to grasp how out of touch the big media elite is.

I want to point out I work at a facility where left wing protests are common. There have been idle threats of violence by bug eyed zealots who think making a new Haymarket incedent will jump start a revolution. We have had regular lockdown drills and evacuations. Some workers are contemplating holding the ground. I strongly advised against this as the first responders will have enough to deal with.

F Politics it is a dead end

The older I get the less political I feel. I still despise thea far left as more mental illness and bigotry than thought. Once you respect private property not much matters.

I would rather spend my days with Cheeky at a playground and with my family. Let hot heads bloviate on subjects they
Know zero about.

I have spent days messed up by Cipro. I am blessed to have wonderful caring friends and family. The end of my story is closer than the beginning. After I am gone many will claim to know things that are false.

For years I was told I wasn't fit to be a parent. Well I found myself exactly in that role and did my best. I never
Saw myself as interesting to children but with my daughter and granddaughter it is apparently incorrect. It starts with giving of yourself and making time. The trip to the playground on bad legs wasn't smart but what a memory.

I want to clear up some minor misunderstandings. Among my best friends is a young Bosnian woman. She is a great friend. I bit off more then I could chew and made a promise. Unfortunately, it was on a day I needed to be hospitalized. I had every intention of getting the job done first. Being Bosnian she knows all about honor. She took the file away and told me go. I told her I made a promise. The attorney said we are in capable hands go. This is the type of friends I have.

Never feel sorry for me.

I am blessed with good people around me. I am not bitter or angry. Different things just mean more to me. The voice of Cheeky calling Granda Pa. She fell asleep to Big Bad John after asking to hear it.

Don't read too much or too little into this. I just find making loving memories with my family more important than politics. It took the temper tantrums of the left to see they are a waste of time.

Roger Waters hypocrite R

Roger Waters is a weapons grade jerk and hypocrite. He likes to lecture the world on morality but comes up short.He made scores of money making music about his friends descent into madness. There is no evidence Waters or anyone else ever reached out to help Syd Barrett or his family. Waters and the rest of Pink Floyd made no efforts to help his family or paid a hospital visit to a peer.

There is no evidence Waters or any person connected to Pink Floyd ever reached out to the Barrett family. Waters wants to lecture the world about the evils of Trump and Israel. It is an established fact, Israel does provide medical care even to the family of Hammas bigwigs. Anyone familiar with Trump can tell you of his generous nature with long term employees.

Waters is a vain self righteous imbecile who latched on to more talented people Barrett and then Gilmour. He ditched
Barrett, because he grew increasingly unstable. Before arm chair psychologists go too far Barrett was never formally
Diagnosed with schizophrenia by professionals well acquainted with the malady. One can also speculate about massive abuse of LSD.

Essentially Waters attempted to fulfill the artistic vision of Barrett on Dark Side of the Moon. Wish you were Here contains tributes to Barrett. The truth was the real Barrett had shown up and was unrecognizable and talking gibberish. Waters was so concerned about Barrett that he never visited or reached out to the Barrett family. He then went on to the baloney that the Wall was about Barrett. It is a self serving myth from an amoral blow hard. He is so consumed with Barrett that he never visited, didn't recognize the man and did not lift a finger to assist his family.

Now after making a career out of exploiting a man he was briefly acquainted with, Waters thinks he is some sort of moral guardian of the universe. His cartoon obsessions are likely more apt to be a sign of mental illness than anything experienced by Barrett. If you cross a KKK idiot with a labotmized social science phd candidate you get Waters. Make no mistake comparing the Holocaust to the ever growing numbers of Palestinians is just idiocy.

His arrogance and his abusive behavior towards the rest of the band are well known. Waters gives spoiled self centered celebrities a bad name. Okay we can write books about celebrities who mistreated their peers and staff. One would have to go far and wide to find a lower human being than Waters.

Now some of you point out I have enjoyed the work of Pink Floyd. This is quite true but it takes a different meaning
after reading about Syd Barrett and the decades of obnoxious self serving bs of Waters. Realistically, Barrett could no longer function. I don't begrudge a song or two. The other Beatles paid tribute to John Lennon. They did not make a career out of trying to rip his style off. There is no comparison of classy persons like George and Paul with Waters.

Don't hold your breath for entertainment reporters to grill Waters about exploitation of Barrett s man he barely knew
And ignored in real life.

Still here

It really isn't as much fun to blog when you are kind of with the President than opposed. I am still not on board the Trump express. However, these are stylish differences rather than wholesale issues.

Still here

I am resting due to a leg infection. My first bout with Cipro and it really does not agree with me. I did talk with AOW off line.

It is harder for me to go to work and see all of my peers gone. The conditions at work are deplorable and none of this has a thing to do with Trump. It is the direct consequence of the garbage generations obtuse values. I had my first and only unfriendly conversation with the outgoing director. I know what a sweatshop is and I have been there first hand. The difference between this place and a sweatshop is sweatshops are well run.

I am not a Trump fan but even produce and lab rats are better than Obama. He will go down as the poster child for social promotion

Shipped out

After an eleven year run in NYC I have been shifted to Queens. My move was one of the few done at the top levels. I like the mix of people in Queens better. The Queens office is very happy to welcome my team. Out of four members three are confirmed. I am working on the last one. Out of the ten best officers in my area they received four including two from my team.

Eleven years is a nice run. I leave with a mix of familiar faces. Usually this is a solitary journey but I am going with my team largely in tact and some neighbors. This is the first time I will be separated from the vegan in my stay.

I arrive in Queens a highly celebrated officer. My top boss used to be my first line. Sadly I will literally be replacing one of my students who was shifted to Brooklyn. I will try and get the final member of my team a spot in Queens.

Oddly I was supposed to go last year. A former boss said we kept your office now go build a new team. I loved the old
Team as it was a great veteran ensemble. Now I have a less experienced crew and a different role. I am more of a leader and teacher and the other crew was an ensemble with a promising star. I rose to the challenge that many friends didn't understand. After my team was destroyed by an error I returned at my choosing and built a good one. The people responsible for the destruction of my old team have apologized. My anger at one hasn't abated and the record of this person speaks louder than I can.

I stopped teaching anyone off my team. I make exceptions for a former boss. I refused to teach classes and stated let the flunky do it. She failed miserably and the new officers are a mixed bag. The bosses conceded it was an egregious error but I refused similar offers. My response was you made your choice now live with the consequences. This move will allow me to resume my career without anger. My current boss is a wonderful pleasure to work with. She is amazed
that the anger has not lessened. However,she also kicked this person out at the first opportunity. Does not work well with others or follow directions has become obvious.

Dawn

The reality is officer Beakerkin is not the same person as Beakerkin.We are in unknown waters and they are scary indeed. What is going to happen, I don't know. The curse of Beakerkin is that as an independent I am trusted for that quality. I apply the laws with fairness and deference to procedures and equity. There are times when I am less fair, but serious criminality or national security dictate those rare situations.

I was not a fan of Obamas turning my agency into a sweat shop. The new era is upon us and I am appalled by some of my peers who reinvent themselves every time the wind blows differently. I announced there will be no additional students
But I will do limited training upon request from managers who have good relationship with me. I will continue to support all people I have mentored. The reason for this change is entirely personal. Management has tried to make peace, but I told them forget it. I still am dedicated, just no more training.

I am still committed to fairness. I didn't think a law was applied properly and ran it past my boss who was less charitable than I about the error. The court kicked it to us for another look. My reaction was a tepid we got this wrong double check. The error was discovered while doing a denovo review. After the correction the judges have leeway
to offer a more permanent remedy.

Until the law changes I work the same.

RIP Mr Breslin

I briefly met Jimmy Breslin. I considered myself lucky enough to have met The late Kelly his daughter. I never met a woman who loved her father more. Kelly was right about many things, just not quite in the way she intended. I did waste too much time at work. Yet for me it was with the love of family not mindless parties and events that had no meaning for me.

In the short encounters I think his greatest wish was to be remembered as a newspaper man. Perhaps he was the apex of what is a dying breed as newspapers die. In the short attention span world perhaps there is no room for his unique talents. While every single one of the tributes got the complex larger than life man correct. Breslin would likely admit that a great writer first captures your attention first. Much of the persona was marketing, but how much is subject to debate of those who knew him better than I.

I hope he is with his daughters in the afterlife

Are we better in a world where the great newspapers and the people that made them a part of our lives slowly become extinct? I don't think so
