Robert James Ritchie aka Kid Rock

Robert James Ritchie aka Kid Rock

So I just heard my first Kid Rock song. Okay, I’ve probably technically heard one before – I know he’s got a few big hits – but I only heard them in the background of something else. Anyway, and in other words, I’m not a fan…

That being said, I don’t dislike him in any way. There are a lot of musicians, actors, actresses, sports figures – whatever – who I’m not a fan of – because I don’t know anything about them. I can’t name a single Slayer song and I grew up in the 80s listening to “metal”. I only take in what I care to take in at any given time…

So… I don’t know if he actually has a chance in politics. I have no idea. I don’t live in Michigan. I’m not sure I can or even SHOULD care. Whatever. What I will say is this… I think Americans like him. Fat Americans. Skinny Americans. Black Americans. White Americans. Male Americans. Female Americans. I’m pretty sure every American who “knows” who he is – LIKES HIM.

The Problem With Millennials

The Problem With Millennials

I figured out the “millennial problem” – and it’s not exactly their own fault. Partially, yes. But their parents are the bigger issue. I know millennials who have their act together. And I know millennials who don’t. Those with parents who didn’t give a crap about the law – in other words – would reprimand their children with a good slap every once in a while – seem to be doing just fine…
 
The rest, not so much. The problem was/is discipline. And I wonder if these millennials will bring up their own children in the same way – without discipline.
 
Is it possible to discipline your children without giving them that good wack once in a while? Probably. Sure. But those who did “get it” don’t seem to have a problem with it. We knew what we did, why we did it and why our parents gave us that wack with their belt, wooden spoon or bare hand.

My Thoughts on the Horsepower War

My Thoughts on the Horsepower War

Ya know… I’m not a big fan of Chrysler. Or Dodge. Or Plymouth. Or whatever the “F” they’re called or who owns them these days. It seems they’re always owned by somebody new. As if nobody wants to own them for too long. I’ve only owned one – and there’s a reason – it was an unreliable car (brand new Chrysler 300C) and the service was utter F’n unbelievable GARBAGE. Worst service I’d ever experienced. Even worse than Honda. And that’s saying something because Honda service is what you deserve if you’ve lived a life of sin and gone to Hell for it.

All that being said, I have to say – I have a lot of respect for Dodge (I don’t know who owns them anymore because they keep changing owners and I don’t care enough to do the research. Fiat or something?!) for bringing us the Hellcat and Demon cars.

One of the things that’s “irked” me for a long time is the horsepower wars. Mercedes-Benz. BMW. Audi. Cadillac. Anyone else? Did I forget somebody? Jaguar? “F” Jaguar. They suck.
