Bruce Jenner is California

I was talking with someone the other day about my impressions of Bruce Jenner from my teenage years (I was 14 when he won the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics) and the almost universal awe with which he was promoted during those years to young minds - like mine. His achievement was so amazing and wonderful (there's no other word for it) that you couldn't help but admire him and with his good looks, flowing locks and warm personality he really was an all American hero. Youngsters can't even imagine Jenner's place in the psychic imagination of a teenage boy from that era 1. because there's no one like him in today's sports world and 2. The Cold War Olympic Games carried real weight and to beat the Russians at one of "their" sports was a huge thing. What happened to this heroic man is analogous to what happened to his adopted home of California and their mutual transformation over the past 40 years is a crying shame.

Man and Woman

Caitlyn Jenner: 'I would seriously look at a run' for office and in California (s)he might actually have a shot at winning - probably the only Republican west of the I-5 with any popular support. This is a state that prevents alternate views from being voiced, refuses to comply with federal law, hates the Bill or Rights - basically it is a Trans-State. It used to be Red, White & Blue, All American and heroic but somewhere along the line it decided that it was some other place and started taking the drugs and weird plastic surgery to become that thing. Now it's a mess, not really America any more but not Mexico or any other country either. It's sad.

Just like there are men and women there is America and Mexico - no matter how much a man might want to be a woman he'll never make it. Grow his boobs, put on the lipstick, cut off his dick - the guy is still a dude. Go take a look at a real woman if you don't believe me. So shape up California and get with the program! You're American. You're part of the U.S.A. and you can't be anything else so start acting like it.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work."

I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months viewershi…

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace: "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
