My proclivity toward smartassness and relative my inability to keep my mouth shut often hit people with blunt force.  And keeping my temper under control has always been a challenge.  Picking my battles, especially with this bunch running ruining things, tests me to the limit, but I get my fair share of shots in.  Dumbfounded stares and frightened looks are routine.  For friends of friends or friends of family, encountering my bluntness can be painful.  I will be tested this weekend no doubt with my niece/Godchild getting married.  An open bar could remove all filters.  What are the odds somebody will say something stupid and set me off?

As far as that flare goes, seems like I've been waiting an eternity...




You would get along quite well with my brother.....LOL

My bro is fed up, can't take it anymore and it is not shy to, literally, call dems stupid. As he calls it, "spreads the love" on our fishing trips at every opportunity.....Gas station, ramp, motel...if he gets the opportunity to take a shot, he does.

Example: Last week, 4:00 am, we are waiting for a particular station (non ethanol) to open, need gas in the boat. We pulled up to a BP (10% ethanol), bought ice,(really had to use the john) pulled over to the side...waiting.....Boater pulls in, fills up his boat and approaches us for info on a ramp...Little small talk, he makes the mistake of telling us his motor has issues, bulb won't stay primed, etc, which is all the invite my bro needed. All my bro said was" It's the gas you are using". Which led to the answer " But its more than across the street". Which led to something like " not only will you have issues putting subsidized ethanol in your boat, but you are supporting the obamanation of this country, falling for the claim this is actually good gas, driving up the cost of our engines, our cars, anything with a motor because we scramble to make a product to run on this piss, while spending much more for the additive to keep your gas mixed, than buying non ethanol, at least for your boat.... YOU are buying the additive, arent you?"

Which led to some stumbling answer, which led to the bro lamenting we need to wake up, think and get rid of this crap.... I don't remember word for word, but he was on a roll.....It was another classic day on the lake.....

Ah, Libertas; you don't want to be the ruination of the Goddaughter's wedding.  Put someone else in charge of your mouth for the duration; you'll be glad you did.  Gunsmith can be counted on to run interference for mine in the most delicate of situations.  ::laughonfloor::   Otherwise, he'll just stand by and let 'er rip.

"Spreading the love".......

Another one of our favs, as we are greeted, we come back with "It's all good, ain't it"? Leads to all sorts of informative conversation.

If you want to have fun, greet people with " It's all great! Right?" or...."We're all good". Aren'T you?" First, normally find their political leanings. Obama supporters normally stammer. You can imagine how conversation can go. We have way too much fun with it.

"It's all good"

The only thing that prompts a stronger (negative) Pavlovian response in my older brother are grownups who wear their baseball caps backwards (kids are stupid so they get a pass)... ::exitstageleft::

I say "it is what it is" a lot - whenever I am discussing situations that are what they are.

 ::thinking:: ::exitstageleft::
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."
