Selfish Political Optics (I Don’t Apologize For It)

A new hit! Guest starring (or like the hip hop people say “feat.”) Chris Christie and drums by Rush’s Neil Peart!

You gotta love a hated politician that doesn’t give a shit about his constituents.  And the funny part is, people are RAGING about him lately, but, if you aren’t completely politically myopic, you could see this in his behavior since he was first elected.  I guess the republicans in New Jersey are completely idiotic, until crap like this is brazenly shoved down their throat in the media.

Either way, this song is HERE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND the man and the SELFISH EGO that is Chris Christie.  Let us all hope after this, he just GOES AWAY!!!

Created this with:

  • Korg Volca bass
  • Korg Volca Keys
  • Korg MiniKP(red box)
  • Korg MicroKorg
  • Ableton Live
  • Adobe Audition
  • Audacity
  • Novation Launchpad
  • A sampled drum fill from Rush’s track “Red Lenses” (from the “Grace Under Pressure” album)

This took about 4 hours to do.  This was tons of fun.  Listen in headphones “cause they’re really gonna help you on this one…”

So How Is The Job Hunt Going?

A listing for a technical writer position came up in Rockville. SIX different “recruiters” called me for it.

  • All offering different lengths of contract.
  • Some showed a salary range and some didn’t.
  • Some of them called BEFORE sending a job description i.e., “cold called.”
  • 3 left a message.

This was the one that I could understand the most. This is an example of one of the “great” recruiters in “America” that are the “Warriors of My Future” who will save me from homelessness in this “great” nation. These are the people who control my future and destiny and stand between me and that all so important encompassing enthralling career move that will change my life and make things better for me.

Let’s just listen to the magic and hope for my future.

Think I have any hope? At all?

Do you have a clearer understanding of my “attitude”?

I get this at a rate between 6-12 interactions a day. I’ve had these and answered them and tried to work with them now for 7 months. Do you think these are actual jobs? Any thoughts at all about this would be interesting from anyone. I’ve already emailed 2 congressman about this with no responses.

All I can say is WHAT THE HELL?!?!

UPDATE: I just had a job description that asked if “Any time planned off next few months (Dr appointments, Vacations, etc.)? ”

I replied with “I may get sick. I am human. I do not “need” a vacation ever, but it may be difficult to come to work constantly with no time away. Once again, I am human.”

Big Deal !!! Who Cares !!!

Racism? Anyone See The Similarity?

Below are two images from our stupid media.  Am I the only one that can see an obvious problem here?  I think both races are to blame.  BOTH!!!   NO RACE is innocent of this trend.  The question is WHY?!

Allison sent me this meme that I think applies to this issue very well.  I think racism will die if we all just admit this..

we are all scum

Frank Gallagher (from Shameless) Gets It!

Frank Gallagher, from the Showtime TV show Shameless, describes the end of Racial and Religious differences.  The character can actually see into the future!  Although I think he is more current than most ignorant people realize.

DC Sucks AGAIN! Metro! Staffed by helpless Victims!

dc sucks

Ah… Washington DC Metro area (you too, Maryland and Virginia)… This is such a land of victims. Apparently, if you run a red light, it’s the light’s fault. If you open doors (by pressing the wrong button) on the wrong side of the metro train, it’s the button’s fault. This is so disgusting, it makes my head explode.

metro only hope smaller

Today there was this article:
http://wtop.com/sprawl-crawl/2016/02/officials-seek-answers-on-metro-red-light-violations/

I was so disgusted when I read this article I almost punched my computer monitor!!  I, of course, left a comment!

This is the biggest bunch of bull I have ever heard in my entire freakin life!

“big rush-rush culture” of metro? ARE YOU SERIOUS? I NEVER SEE ANY METRO OPERATOR OR EMPLOYEE RUSH FOR A N Y T H I N G! Where is this coming from? Is this some alternate reality? This is completely insane!!!!!

Why they run red lights? Cause they can! Why do they open doors on wrong side of the train? Because they can!

TURN THEM OVER! They run a red light! FIRE THEM! They open doors on the wrong side? FIRE THEM! The culture of laziness, and constantly crying victim IS THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE PART OF WMATA. There are thousands of people who want those jobs and can do them better. Ya run a red light? You press the wrong button and open doors on wrong side. YOU ARE FIRED! PERIOD! It’s not the button’s fault, it’s not the red light’s fault, it’s not this mysterious “rush rush culture”… its NEGLIGENCE, LAZINESS, UNACCOUNTABILITY AND COMPLETE LACK OF CONCERN AND WORK ETHIC. FIRED! FIRED! FIRED! (idiots)

Fuck you Washington Metro Area Transit Authority.  Fuck you DC!  Fuck you Maryland!  Fuck you Virginia!  Fuck every single ounce of you!

fuckoffgift

Man up, admit you suck and it’s your own fault, then start the building process and quit blaming everything but yourself.  You gutless pussies!

Here’s an article in the Washington Post that does what every media outlet does with class warfare, TURNS IT INTO A RACE ISSUE.

I left a comment. This is what I wrote:

This is what I have learned about Maryland as a state. It isn’t about race folks. The media constantly raises the race issue to hide the real issue. Maryland is extremely talented at propping up their rich constituents. They tax the crap out of the poor and middle class and pump up the rich in this state so much, it is visibly disgusting. Look at the heliports behind the mansions in Howard county.

Maryland is a state that relies on people driving cars EVERYWHERE. If you ever wondered why, just re-license your car in another state, then come back to license your car in Maryland and notice how much it costs. This is probably the most expensive state to transfer a drivers license. The govt makes too much money on this. They WANT us to sit in our cars. It’s too much of a cash cow for the state. It’s all about roads and parking and driving and people complaining about their commutes. You see the license plate honoring our farm land, but really it’s just a ruse for another Maryland “fake city”/”town centre” and sprawl with no reasonable means of accessibility. Look at Montgomery County with its little pockets of fake plastic urban existence (fake cities), with NOTHING in between. Maryland is a model of poor planning, excess, and waste. Nothing here is done efficiently with growth in mind. Its a mess. And anytime you hear a Maryland politician talking about “quality of life”, its just the rich pandering to the ignorant media absorbed middle/low class so they can rape us for another dime and another heliport behind a mansion. (Note: I’m a democrat, and Maryland makes me ashamed of my party).

Job Hunt: What is Wrong With This STUPID Country?!

Below is an exchange between one of the 6-10 job recruitment emails I receive DAILY.  (Don’t be fooled folks, the job market out there is really good).

However, this demonstrates what is inherently wrong with labor and the “job creators”* in our country.

(*Remember, the term “job creator” is total bullshit because the people who have the ability to create jobs really dont give a damn if they are creating jobs or not.  They just want to see if they can get their overhead and hire people for as little wage as humanly possible.  Essentially, these companies would hire neuro physicists for $5 an hour if they could get away with it).  Below is the exchange.)

Everything listed is well within the scope of my experience. Currently, I am working on a contract that seems to have no end for HRSA.

I am making $xx/hour on a 1099 with absolutely no benefits including no sick leave.

If you can do better than this, I will consider.

Thanks,
Chad Graybill

Please send me your updated resume.

Thanks!

(attached resume)

Considering I just re-signed a year lease living in North Bethesda, MD…. I don’t think this rate is reasonable enough for me to break my lease and move my life to Martinsburg, WV. The commute from my current residence is 50+ miles one way through some of the worst traffic the east coast has to offer.

Can we reconsider with this in mind?

A friend of mine said, “There are many job opportunities out there right now. The problem is that everyone wants help, but nobody wants to pay for it.” Can you show ME that you really want my help and make it worth my while to uproot my life for this? The way I see this, we are all responsible for our own health care at this point. I dont understand why companies have very little to pay for labor these days. It’s bad enough that we now cover our own health care, then companies don’t want to pay for any sick or vacation leave. How much more cheaper can we make labor for the “job creators”? I don’t understand why BEFORE the ACA(“obamacare”), companies covered health care AND leave. Now they want to cover NOTHING? I dont see how this is reasonable or even fair.

Merely $5 extra dollars an hours doesn’t seem really reasonable enough for this.

Apparently, when we want something we pay for it.  When the “job creators” or the people who HAVE MONEY want something, we are supposed to give it to them for free.

This is why I do not rise for the national anthem.

UPDATE:  this person didn’t even read the response and just sent me a form to sign for “exclusivity” so nobody else can PIMP me for this contract.  Essentially, they just made the assumption that I accepted their offer.   Once again, proof that nobody in America reads ANYTHING.  I responded saying:

We are still negotiating! If you actually read my last post you will know that I did not accept your offer and was questioning the reasons why the consideration is so low.  I will not sign any agreement until the terms are reasonable.  Your suggested terms are not reasonable as mentioned in my last post.
