Street Talk

Street talk, as they say, is: ‘straight talk’…  Tellin’ it like IT is, so that people who are afraid, or even deny to look at the truth, will bare witness to it anyway!  In some translation, it’s actually: ‘tough love’, yet if someone doesn’t speak up, injustice, and misunderstanding might prevail.  So some of the brave among us will take on topics that others dare not…  Well I’m one of those idiots!  LOL!

Let it be known that because of the topic of discussion, I in no way, shape or for, with malice or intent, would or could ever murder anyone.  That just isn’t in me.  However, there are people who walk this Earth, when their lives are threatened, their livelihood, or their family, will take the law into their own hands: even more especially, when their assailant is falsely accusing them.  We commonly refer to this as a kind of: ‘Looking for Mr. Goodbar’…  Anyway, If we don’t, we should!

Some people are willing to sacrifice themselves to stop parasites that prey upon other humans…  They are usually people who are sick-and-tired of life in general, and want to go out ridding the world of a predator, and if it were left up to me, I’d sooner pin a medal on their chest, and avoid any unnecessary paper-work…  Yes.  There is a ‘law above the law’ that subscribes to God rather than Mankind…  These people feel you are the sacrifice they offer God for entrance into Disneyland…

A Word to The Wise

‘When you set out for vengeance, start by digging two graves…’  I would suggest also, that you subscribe to God’s Law: to love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you.  Elese-wise, nobody will show up at your funerals either.  Evil begets evil!  And I truly believe that one day, the evil ones will cancel each other out, and we’ll no longer have to support criminals.  Always fight bad with good.  And ‘The Good’ simply have to do nothing, knowing they’ve already won the game by default.  Christ’s own promise :O)

I would NEVER raise a hand to my Child!

You’re what I like to call: ‘Wrong!’

You know me to be quite apt at explaining myself by now.  Reason being, I would never say anything to mislead you if I can possibly help it!  I’ve always tried to look ahead, consider the entire picture and possible consequence of my actions against the dividends.  My judgments then, are more than usually spot on.  If I don’t know what I’m talking about, you can pretty well bet I won’t tackle the subject.  However, having learned through keen, observation, and personal experience, I can confidently say that I qualify as a competent Parent, rather than the Child Beater you may be supposing of me right now.  There’s a difference!

If you truly love your children, you must administer the appropriate amount of discipline at the appropriate times!  By appropriate, I mean if it concerns something major to their proper development, like failing to carry out instructions that may involve serious consequences for your child later in life, or an actual armed robbery…  LOL!  

Take my word for this.  For two of my children, a boy and a girl, I have only administered corporal punishment once and once only!  Since taking this wise step, (not holding back , and teaching who’s Boss).  That’s all important or you may wind up with a little Psychopath on your hands!  It’s not my problem if your kid goes to Prison for Life at 19 cuz he lost his temper and shot someone.

Some boys more especially, tend to be willful enough not to produce tears.  A red butt confirms it was delivered successfully.  Then be certain to explain in detail exactly how much that hurt you to have to do that!  Ask them why they did what they did, and explain the consequences, not just from you, but from how their entire lives will proceed on such a premise…  ‘Will you please listen to me from now on?’  Else-wise, this is Parental Neglect!

Since then, I’ve had nothing but glowing reports from people everywhere, on how well behaved my children are, and I never once had to touch them again!  When I ask them to jump, they ask how high…  And it’s not out of fear, but the common sense that must be drilled into them.  This in truth is respect that guides them.  Else-wise, you are raising a little Trouble Maker, that eventually become:  ‘Big Trouble Makers!’  Comprehend?  This has also worked on my cat.  It now obeys my every command making it unnecessary to suffer through life to begin with.  You will find then generally, just making your cat stand in the corner with it’s nose against the wall, is enough…

The One that got away…

Elliot was the one I had yet to discipline at all before I left.  He was only 3 at the time…  I managed to retrieve a picture from my (One time) brother, and it was obvious in the picture that he was a true instigator in the making!  So you see, the stand in the corner, or removal of privileges, or even grounding, in and of it’s own, is primary ineffective without at first removing the want to create mischief far from them, and as unfortunate as this may sound to you, sometimes you may have to even threaten the little Dodgers, reminding them that you DON’T want to strike them, and not that you do.  This is one prominent reason we raise Criminals; we don’t spend enough constructive time with them to point them in the right directions to begin with!

These are Human Beings that start out as animals!  Check out parental behavior in the entire Animal Kingdom if you don’t believe me…  Watch a sibling start a fight with another cub, and just see if the Mother solves the problem with words?  I’m not in a particular mood to strike any child.  It’s a one time event, while they’re young, backed by caring and value instruction on life and how to tackle what they must face out there, without becoming just like them.  And I’m not here to tell you to do anything!  Your choices are yours to make, and yours alone..  For further instructions, please view this site:  Backward as ever though:  ‘I would NEVER raise a hand to my Child!’  


Tennis Update: Roanic Vs Lopez

Canada’s Great Quarter Final Upset…

Yes!  Canada is upset!  Why? not just because Roanic went down-itch.  More on that later…  So how did Roanic fail?  Firstly, let’s get our facts straight.  Milos (Milos?), is only 23, and has just barely broken into the big leagues.  Lopez is a seasoned player and has a heavy, serve as well, to easily counter-punch, and effectively neutralize Milos’s (Milos’s?  Oh! You don’t want them running around the house with the lights off!  Six foot five or not, all of Milos’s power has to be channelled much more accurately when is comes to rallying with an opponent who wants the win, even more badly than you do! 


Here we see Roanic, clearly still in his zombie , like state; completely unaware of where he is!  Still unable to adjust to rallying…  Looks like he’s looking at a dead bird on the court.  Perhaps he shot his wallet over the net, mistaking it for the ball?  ‘Dad!  I can’t believe you just told me I can’t go to The Malt Shop after the game!’  He’s still a Green Horn!  Give him a chance to improve; he’s actually doing a splendid job of that!  The man actually practices during his game.  Not such a good idea in my book.  Practice is practice, and tournament is tournament…  You know?  Is there a Zombie Doctor in The House?

Roanic Makes Good Fight!

I believe it was the second game of the 2nd. set that Roanic made an amazing attempt to beak The Lopez Serve, and brought Lopez to 8 break points in one game, which became 17 minutes in duration; long for one game!  Yet, Lopez saved attempt after attempt, and finally won that game.  The entire match was so close though, that had Roanic won that exchange, it would have been enough for him to win the match!  So he did come within a hair’s breathe of doing just that!  Roanic is improving at an incredible rate, and Hey!  He made it to The Quarter Finals…  Notice it at least has the word ‘finals’ in it.

In his own interview after the game, he said he needs to work on his rallying and to play more aggressively!  That’s not the important part though.  Today, The Rogers Cup is not on any of the designated sports channels at the designated time, or any time at all, for that matter.  Good news though!  I found it.  Well, for whomever gets this channel.  I found it on channel 130 (Winnipeg), at 12:30 pm.., for those interested in following the the semi-final coverage today…

Feliciano Lopez

And here is the man that beat Milos and has moved on, to The Semi-finals today; Feliciano Lopez.  It will be interesting to see how he handles himself today.  I do believe Roger Federrer will take The Cup;  Of corpse, that’s just my prediction; Djokovic is out!  Nadal is out!  Unless there’s an upset, those are his highest competitors!   And what a Hunk, eh ladies?  Huh?

Tennis Has Entered A New Stage of Development…

There’s a whole new crop of big guys that are going to topple ‘The Top Four’, Murray’ Djokovic, Nadal, and Federrer…  These guys have been at the top for 20 years now.  It’s time for an overhaul anyway.  Some of these guys are giants too!  Guys like Milos, at 6’ 5” and Kevin Anderson at 6’ 8”, and John Isner, at 6’ 9”!  All of the top four are mere midgets in comparison…  As for Genie Bouchard, never heard from her.  She must have got popped during the early rounds;  She too is only 20 years old and still a spring chicken.  Expect great things from these two excellent Canadian players in the future!

As for Roanic, the big Dummy!  LOL!  He has added to his bag of tricks by hiring two coaches to instruct him.  Then he gets a broader spectrum of advice for, not to mention: Stephen Edberg, one of the all time greats!  I noticed right away, instead of throwing in a faster bomb than his first one, I believe they have instructed him to rally with his second serve instead.  I think that’s good advice.  So no, he didn’t suddenly go stupid on his second serve.  He went smart, seizing the opportunity instead, to learn how these guys play. 

Just blowing them all away on his service games isn’t teaching him anything new, hence the slower, second serve from him.  It’s not a fault, it’s a tactic…  He’s also used his proceeds to build upon kid’s Tennis in Canada  Over-all, Milos has done a lot to bolster Canadian hopes, and we should be proud of his amazing climb, ultimately, says Roanic, to the top!  You go get’m Roanic!  Cheers! (YAY!)
