13th Amendment

13th amendment

Enacted by the greatest President to ever represent the people. Abraham Lincoln. This amendment is one reason why anyone can prosper. If it were to be abolished, the repercussions would be more socio-economic. The wealthy would ultimately own the poor and crimes such as rape would also become legal because you can’t rape property, only people.

MPO: What’s love got to do with it

tina turner

This has nothing to do with Tina Turner except that she is an amazing singer. The fact is that too many people base there judgments on likability. They are easily swayed by a person that is likable and tend to decry people that aren’t as charismatic or amiable. That likability factor plays a role in how people perceive one another. This doesn’t mean likable people aren’t good people but that they sometimes get the benefit of the doubt more often than they should. My criteria for deciding is simple, I will always choose the side of the person that is right over the person that is wrong. I can hate you, loathe you, think nothing of youĀ  but if you are right, you will have my support. I can love you, like you, feel that you are a great person but will fight against you if you are wrong. It is that simple. It should be that simple for everyone but it’s easier said than done.

I THANK GOD FOR BOXING

boxing gloves

I would like to share a story of why everyone should do boxing.

I have trained in boxing, on and off, for the past thirty odd years. Have never been good enough to really do anything with it financially speaking, but it has kept me in good shape. When I severely sprained my ankle while working in the border Patrol, I stood on one leg and and a leg with an air cast and used boxing drills to keep me in shape. As soon as I was cleared to run again, something that I used to love to do, I was able to run down a group of illegal citizens that had crossed. Chasing them down for a little less than a mile, carrying all my equipment , the day after I was cleared to return to work. Boxing is an amazing sport that fine tunes your body. What it does mostly, it refines your reflexes. It makes them quicker and steady.

This was never more apparent when my son, at the age of 8, for some reason decided to cross the street running while an SUV had just accelerated at full speed to beat a light. I had just turned my head to the right to look for oncoming traffic when I caught my son, who was to my left, through the corner of my eye, racing into the middle of the street. Out of nowhere, my left hand, my best hand, I used to throw a mean and quick left hook, even though I’m righty, reached out and grabbed him and pulled him back. The SUV was literally, not figuratively, right upon him. I pulled him back and out of the way. All I can think is that if my son gotten hit that day, I would have never been able to live with myself. It would have devastated me. My son apologized and he knew better. I have been teaching him to the cross the street since he was 5. I don’t know what got into his head.

I thank boxing, it literally saved my son’s life.

Onesie!

onesie

Nothing has ever brought me more joy and fear as receiving this as a gift from my girlfriend (at the time, later to be my wife). My first thought was how the hell am I ever going to fit into that and what weird kinky things is she into but when she started to rub her belly and she gave me the note that was underneath the onesie, reality hit like the house on the witch in the Wizard of Oz. I was no longer in Kansas and toto would be born 8 and half months later and weigh over 7 pounds and be 26 inches long.

anecdotE

murder kill

I got a phone call and the person told me that “after this is over, I’m going to murder you” and the next day I got another one and the person said “I’m going to kill you”. I’m pissed off, how can I plan my day if I haven’t a clue if their either going to murder me or kill me, make up your mind Mr. Homicidal maniac. Geesh, now which shoes am I suppose to wear?

GGG v Canelo 2: Review

canelo ggg 2

Just watched the replay of GGG v Canelo and all I can say is god damn, what a fight! GGG looked like he got a bit older but fought beautifully and Canelo is figuratively made of cast iron. After watching the replay, there is one thing that is not in doubt, GGG won, at least 8 rounds, no one can deny that after re-watching the fight. The bettng odds were -160 Golovkin to +130 Canelo. So if you bet $1000 on Canelo then you just walked away with $2300. That’s a hell of a payday.

GGG landed the big shot in round 10 that had Canelo holding on and noticeably zapped his strength. I had GGG winning rounds 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11 – without a doubt. Canelo had all the other rounds, some in doubt.

I think when a fight of this magnitude is this close and doesn’t end up in a knockout, the commission should call the decision as a provisional decision until a review can be had the next day by 6 judges. Then you hand down the official decision.

I’ve seen some outraged analysts over this rematch take to the airwaves and voice their displeasure and I thought that they were overreacting but it seems that they were right.

I won’t pay for number 3 but I think that it is definitely warranted, plus, I would like to see Canelo win one.
