for your eyes (only)

Twitter is lighting up at the moment with the uncovering of this video of the Heene family boys, better known to the world as the "balloon family", in which they rap about the "pussification" of American men and boast "I hate gay faggots, I (kill? hit?) 'em with a bat." Or something like that. You judge at the 2:40 mark. Immediately following, the kid unmistakably speaks about throwing a rock at a "faggot" in a tree. These children definitely need to be removed from the custody of their parents.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am my own person, no matter what you think

for self-commitments

for a weekend of perfect weather

that I had the courage to walk through a small fear -- I attended and entered my Riviera in a car show. I went by myself and was there for about 5 hours. There were 253 other entries, so I was kinda lost in the crowd (a good thing). I had a number of compliments on my car, but I also know that it's nowhere near "car show quality". All in all though, I'm glad I did it. And I got really sunburned.

Too many people spend money they haven't earned to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.

Among other happenings in this world, I simply cannot BELIEVE these things are occurring, allowed (free speech?)...just where ARE we going, dAAve? OMG, help us.

some people just don't get it... I pray for folks like that.

You'll make friends in that classic car club if you keep going. It's good to get outside our comfort zone occasionally.

That Heene boys video leaves me speechless.

I have a friend who is very involved in a Classic Car Club...keep going will love it! The video just leaves me sad.

I am so glad you did the car show thing. I think we should all follow a few passions and see where it leads us. The weather was glorious!

Pam said...

Oh, I forgot to comment on the video. I could not understand the words.
I wonder what the world would be like if we threw out the entire media world and started over with all new reporters.

Nice going Dave with the car show. It sounds as if you had a great opportunity to meet folks and enjoy the experience. I try to move outside my usual experiences as much as possible.

Dude, who cares what this family does. I'm straight,but I don't get on a blog every day and write about it. It's nice to know I could though. Peace

Bill said...

I'm not going to watch that video clip. That family has had more than their share of airtime.

I just ate a banana, and I have an extra one here if you would like it.

dAAve said...

Sure Bill, I'll take it.

Patrick said...

Save me half, please?

The clip is now down.

Oh, and dAAve? Please try some sunscreen next time, no sense getting skin cancer.
