When I first saw this billboard I had an overwhelming urge to deface it with some graffiti, which is a crime. So please indulge me here. Consider that not only is this particular divergent series…Continue

This Xmas I'm giving sarcastic remarks, barbs and insults to those I love. In return, however, cash is appreciated. I can always apologize later as a part of my New Year's self improvement…Continue

"Hmmmm, and they have about a quarter million serfs living in squalor building their world class city. One thing for sure though, they can't beat our world class murder rate, we rival Baghdad for that honor. "

World class cities?

Well, we didn't make the cut. And Wikipedia keeps changing the criteria. Chicago used to be ranked just below New York, London, Paris and Tokyo. Now we've been relegated to 3rd tier status. We're even outranked by Dubai and that was probably mostly because of the Burj Khalifa. It's been…See More

Joe Guzzardo replied to Haddon's discussion Girl Rides Bike For The First Time - AFV
"Super cute. True story. When my younger son was about 5, I took him out to the park to try his big brother's bike, who was about 2 years older. His big brother learned how to ride a 2 wheeler pretty quickly and I suspected he would do the same.…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Waymond Smith's discussion What would you have done?
"Agreed, doing nothing is not the best solution. That woman is a danger to the public and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Throwing bottles at people is a very serious offense and whether the woman was mentally or not is really irrelevant."
