Of Baseball Bats and Mayors

You would think that a Baseball Bat from opening day presented by the Springfield Cardinals would live on a mantle or in a display case. The one given to Springfield Mayor Tom Carlson resides in the Springfield Police Departments Evidence Locker. Details are still coming in but allegedly someone from the family gave it to a friend who then proceeded to take batting practice on the windows of several vehicles.

Any family could have one black sheep and in the Carlson Family you might say that was Tom Jr. but now you have a second young adult who is now "in trouble" with the law. How far from the tree do the apples fall? If Carlson’s family is in such disarray what does this tell us about the man and his ability to lead?

On other matters it now is clear the City of Springfield put the kibosh on The Guardian Angels new office on Commercial Street. What are they afraid of? A citizens group who wants to help make the community safer. Is it Finnie doesn't like the idea of his mismanagement of the Springfield PD made so obvious that we need the Guardian Angels. I can tell you as a fact that the overwhelming majority of business on commercial WANTED the Angels presence.

For those who asked for the Old Lady Story, here ya go. For everyone else, see ya on the radio!

An older lady gets pulled over for speeding...
Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.
Older Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?
Older Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one.
Officer: Don't have one?
Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.
Officer: I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Older Woman: I can't do that.
Officer: Why not?
Older Woman: I stole this car.
Officer: Stole it?
Older Woman:
Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?
Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please!

The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Older woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Older Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.
Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?
Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned.
Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.
Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.

Of Rumolli and Dancing with Stars

OK so what's Rumolli you ask? It's a Card Game popular in the 60's in Canada. It has a poker component and a Rummy component. Great Game! You can find it at

Dancing with the Stars? Go to

I confess the first time around I really didn't get the OJ thing. I knew it was the wrong verdict but I didn't understand how deep the problem America faces is. It took a card game and a goofy TV show.

Master P is some Hip Hop Mogul. I know nothing about him other than what I have been able to glean from the TV Show. Seems like an OK Guy. However the guy cannot dance and should have been voted off the show weeks ago but he hasn't. Why? Because a large block of predominantly black voters are voting for him based on nothing more than his and their color. This is wrong, it is not fair and it goes against the idea that the show is a contest rather it has become a popularity contest.

So what? It's a goofy TV show right? Right!?

Actually I think it is a microcosm of many things Black in America today. Master P cannot dance yet Black people vote for him because he is black. Entitlements are crippling America and in the long run are destroying the initiative and drive of many poor black people yet Black people continue to vote for Democrats because they have been duped into believing they cannot make it in society without them.

It was around our Rumolli game last Saturday that some very lively discussion took place on this very thing. It's the Plantation Mentality. Master will take care of us. The sad thing is Master is now The Democratic Party and their Entitlement Programs. One of the people at the table, a woman, once on welfare was proud she had pulled herself up and had become a productive member of society raising her kids with no government help. "If I had all those entitlements I don't think I would have worked so hard to get to where I am".

The problem how do you get a large segment of the Black population to see the Democratic Party for what they are and how do you give them the courage to leave the plantation?!

See you on the radio!
