Bullies!

10/28/2014 — 1 Comment

Now that I have time and experience to look over, I can comment on things more clearly and I hope that you take this to heart and not cosider it “My Opinion!”

I have dealt with many Bullies in my life and they all have had one thing in common. They are cowards!

When I was thirteen years old we all would hang out at The Dairy Queen, on Kilburn Ave, in Rockford, IL. There was a boy there that was a quarter larger than the rest of us and he used his size to great advantage. He would bully all of us. One day I bought a twenty-five cent cone (My entire allowance) and was about to enjoy it when this boy came over, took it from me and began to eat it. I had had enough! I used the palm of my right hand and shaved the entire cone into his face and took off! He chased m, but I was faster and left him in my dust!

That boy never bothered me again! He was afraid of me and knew that I was willing to defend myself. Again, a coward!

Over and over I have stood up to Bullies and without fail, they have cowered! However, if you come up against a group of Bullies you will have to fight!

My first real job, in life was as a carhop at Steak and Shake Drive in in Loves Park, IL.

Not all of our customers were nice.  Every weekend a car full of boys, in a 1956 Chevy, would pull in and park out at the end of the parking lot.  They would taunt me with remarks like, “You’re a Queer, you’re so skinny, and you look like a girl.”  One night they pulled a trick on me.  The driver hadn’t backed his car all the way into his spot.  When I ran up to the driver’s side door to take the order, he put his car in gear and backed up to place his left front tire squarely on top of my left foot.  All the boys laughed and jeered.

On another night I had, had enough!  When these boys started to call me a ‘Queer,’ I said, “Hey, I don’t know where you boys come from but I have never seen any of you with a girl.  I think you boys are Queer!”  With that, they piled out of their car and started beating me and kicking me.  I was down on the ground stabbing them in their legs with my lead pencil.  These boys were beating me for a long time when I heard the most wonderful sound.  The sound was Hughey Myers dragging a logging chain across the black top.  Hughey began twirling his logging chain over his head and said, “You boys better let my man up!”  When those punks saw Hughey and that logging chain they jumped in their car and burned rubber away.  I never saw them again.

Hughey helped me up and put his arm around me and said, “You got your ass kicked man, but you got your licks in, I’m proud of you!”  For the first time in my life, someone had called me a man.  I loved Hughey Myers!

Right now I am dealing with a Bully named Stephen Shaeffer and he is another big and cowardly man. I have never met him, but he has decided that I will be easy pickings. Well I’m afraid Stephen Shaeffer has another thing coming. I hired a detective and found out where he lives, his address, his wife’s name, where she works and his mother name and phone number. Stephen Shaeffer is already running for the hills after I called his wife and his home this morning! Another coward!

So remember. If you are Bullied by someone, stand up to them and they will always get rubber legged!

Opinion.

I was at the peak of my virility in my teen years, 13 to 15 bringing standout memories. But women would have nothing to do with me. I was too needful. Women don’t like that. Now I’m just about totally impotent and they’re swarming all over me.

I have never had a child, and boy am I glad. But I’m sure I could have spawned a good one. A boy. A boy to grow into the most virile of men. Why? Because the most virile men are the product of sexual intercourse between a man at his peak of virility with a woman at the peak of hers.

What I’m trying to say is, sex should be encouraged among teenagers – not just the boys, but the girls. And girls should not be allowed to go out with older boys or men either. Line them up with boys of their own age and let them choose.

I have never been able to understand why adults forget what it was like to be a horny kid. For some reason parents won’t let their kids do what they did when they were kids. Why do kids have to lie when they come home late?

“Where have you been at this late hour”, demands Dad when the kid walks in.

“Uh, me and Timmy were watching a football game and doing our homework during the commercials.” Give me a break. Why can’t the kid say, “Dad, I was up the street messing around with Becky Sue and I lost track of time.” And why can’t Dad say, “Ok, son – just make sure you always exercise caution.

“What do you mean, Dad?”

“I mean when you’re making love and you’re holding her tight, don’t squeeze her too hard or too long or you might crush her to death.”

“Ok Dad, got it.”

Why can’t Moms and Dads accept that? They claim they discourage sex for their children because someone might get pregnant. So what? Maybe 13 year old kids can produce better offspring than people beyond their peak of virility – stronger and healthier offspring than ever. And if they’re not having outright intercourse, what’s wrong with messing around a little bit? I want honest answers.

Stuck On Cute

10/23/2014 — 2 Comments

After being on social media for a while, now, I have come to a disturbing conclusion. People seem to be Stuck On Cute!

Photo after photo of kittens, puppies and babies are everywhere. Rather than voice an opinion or take a stance on something relevant people choosing to hide behind these “Cute” photos and sappy “Memes” that are usually something like, “I’m for goodness and nice people. How about you?” Everyone seems to be bent on this “I want to be seen as a Nice Person” kick!

Advertisers pump this image of themselves as having motives of the betterment of mankind and the earth or the environment for selling their product. If you buy our brand of car it will be good for the environment, because our car runs on lithium batteries! What they leave out is the part about Lithium being poisonous to both pour bodies and our soil! And, by the way, “It’s all natural!” Well, rocks are all natural, rat parts are all natural and yes, toenails are all natural! And we fall for it because, you see, stupid is all natural too!

And we don’t seem to care if our political candidates are competent as long as they are good looking! Do you realize that not since Dwight D. Eisenhower have we had a President that didn’t have a full head of hair. We seem to believe that a full head of hair can run the most powerful country in the world much better than a person that has some experience running a business or even having a lemonade stand, for that matter. And the USA is the only country in the world that believes this.

However, we make an exception for female candidates. We prefer our female candidates to homely, the homelier the better. And we want them to have butts that are near the size of Cleveland! Because women with butts nearly the size of Cleveland won’t intimidate the female voters who’s butts are actually the size of Cleveland and its suburbs. Women with big butts know who to run big countries!

In the upcoming election, I plan to vote for a candidate that is tall, has a full head of hair and a big butt. Lets see. Marlon Brando is dead, so I can’t vote for her. Let me think, hmm… Wait, I have it! I’m going to vote for Jhon Goodman! At least he’ll be able to act like a President!

See you at the polls!

Kip,

I see in the news that an African American serial killer has been arrested in Gary, Indiana. I remember the good old days when serial killers were almost always white. As a white male, it was one of only a few things I could be proud of. Now here come the African Americans once again to spoil everything once again.

For a long time, the mantra of black folks was, “Only white people kill for fun.” For a long time I almost believed they were right, that serial murder and child molestation was strictly the work of white folks. Not much to be proud of, but at least it was something.

A few years back they caught an African American serial child-molester/killer in Atlanta. Remember that guy? At the time it was big news. Since then, however, there has been a proliferation of Negro serial killers, to the point where once again they are challenging one of the few remaining bastions of whites-only dominance.
Negroes enjoyed their exclusive non-serial-killer status for a long time. But once the door was cracked and they saw a chance to compete, they ran with it. Not content with domination of basketball, boxing, and soul singing, today they are ahead of us in many areas and neck and neck with us in others. Serial killing was our domain. Let’s take it back. How? There is only one way. Kill the Negroes and wipe out the seed of black male serial killing dominance. Kill them now while we still have the chance to remain number one at something. I am just kidding, of course. Truth is, I am glad to see that true racial equality is finally on the rise in our land.

Stalker!

10/22/2014 — 2 Comments

Unknown

Stalking is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person. In this case Kip Addotta! Stalking behaviors are related to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them on the internet. The later is true, in my case. Yesterday on 10/21/14 I posted a video, on YouTube in which I did a rant on the ravages of liquor and drugs on our society!

I immediately started getting comments from a Stephen Shaeffer accusing me of smoking weed on a video I put up in May of 2011. Stephen Shaeffer went on to infer that I was  hypocritical for doing a rant on liquor and drugs while I, myself, was smoking pot. In addition to this he went on to castigate me, saying that I had gone against my statement that my “Word” was 24 carrot gold! I took offense to this and, with that, he accused me of only wanting positive posts, on my videos!

I informed him that I have never deleted a negative post on TouTube before, but he was having none of that! He had been waiting all these years to find a chink in my armor and thought his dream had come true!

The creepy thing about Stephen Shaeffer is that I have never heard from him before, even though he has obviously been monitoring me for years and had eighteen of my videos uploaded to his YouTube page, seemingly waiting for an opportunity to pounce.

The word stalking is used, with some differing meanings, in psychology and psychiatry and also in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offense.

According to a reports by the National Center for Victims of Crime, “virtually any unwanted contact between two people that directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear can be considered stalking,” although in practice the legal standard is usually somewhat stricter.

Good Day, Mr. Shaeffer!

Kayla

Well, my Granddaughter, Kayla is now ten years old. I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.

I was standing outside of the delivery room with my ear to the door listening for some sound. Then I heard my daughter Kathy exclaim, “Aha” having seen Kayla for the first time. I passed out and crumpled to the floor. It was a good thing the floor was carpeted.

When my eyes opened, people were milling about, happily discussing “The Great Event.”

My daughter, Kathy, had been looking forward to this day for a long time. She is a beautiful woman and fun to be around, but wasn’t having much luck finding a likely father for the baby she longed to have. The years went by and she dated some boys, but none of them were “The one.” It is difficult to find a suitable partner, in this day and age. I kept encouraging her saying, “Kathy, don’t settle. Mr, right would come along. Trust me!”

A decade went by and, still, there was no one that could cut the muster. then, my prayers were answered! Kathy introduced me to a boy named Michael. He was right under her nose and she hadn’t seen him. You see, Michael was working for years at the same company Kathy did, Telecom International, in West Lake California. And unbeknownst to Kathy, Michael had been pining over her for quite some time. Finally, he gathered up his courage and ask Kathy out.

When she brought him home to meet me, as she had with so many others, I knew right away that Michael was “The one.” But the decision was hers, not mine!

Then the two of them went off on a weekend alone. On one of those days, Kathy and Michael were walking along a beach when Michael presented her with a ring and popped the question. I was so proud that the first person she called was me, her dad. After all the growing pains and conflict that fathers and daughters go through, she had called me to give me the good news. Words cannot describe the feeling of pride that came over me!

Kayla was conceived on the second night of their honeymoon. I guess Michael and Kathy were too pooped to pop after the extravaganza of a wedding we had for them!

Now, Kayla is ten.

There may be someone who is having a better life than we are, but I can’t imagine who that is!

Why I Didn't Change My Name When I Got Married!

I’m not against it, but why would a woman marry a man and, then, not pay him the courtesy of taking his last name! I know Movie Stars do it, but I’m not talking about Movie Stars here!

Amber Kathleen Ryan Hmmm. I guess, because I too have had some hilarious run-ins with civil servants when I applied for passports or applied for work from time to time. But then, I’ve had so many names, they always suspect me of something. And… my daughter is running for school board using her maiden name instead of her married name and it just seems like the thing to do to avoid confusion. And I’m a feminist. And just in the mood, I guess. (Or, perhaps, your calling the wife ‘disrespectful’ for not taking someone else’s name, set off some alarms from the old days… my old days.)

Scott Shimamoto She’s not taking his last name because she plans to take half of his assets when they get divorced. She’s not THAT selfish!!! Haha

Craig Matteson I have friends who were not related bit both had the last name Monson. He always says he took her last name.

Kip Addotta Kristin Pearson Samet, you are correct and I stand corrected! I HAVE never thought of it! BTW, not that it matters, but my former wife has always kept my name. Your comment made me realize why. It must be because of our children! Thank you for teaching me something! You’re tops!

Julie Savay- Ross For me, I added his last name onto mine…I already had a thriving career and was well known by my original name so by adding on the Ross, I never had an issue with identity in business or with the press. Its all good

Kristin Pearson Samet Kip, thank you – ever the gentleman are you.

Morley Shulman Interestingly enough, when John married Yoko, he changed his middle name to John Winston Ono Lennon.

Kristin Pearson Samet So, Kip, this begs the question: if a woman doesn’t take her fiancee’s name, does that mean he gets to skip buying her an engagement ring? What’s fair is fair, right?

Kip Addotta Kristin Pearson Samet, I guess not (Hanging my head)

Morley Shulman I asked my girlfriend if she would change her name if we got married and she asked me what I preferred. I told her whatever made her happiest. Even Shakespeare said “what’s in a name?”

Kip Addotta Morley Shulman, Like YOU have a girlfriend!

Morley Shulman I never said she had any taste… just that I have one!

Melissa Schickel first of all, I know a man who actually took his wife’s last name. Secondly my father was the only male in his family. I am the last sole survivor of that family. Since my brother passed away in Vietnam and had no children I am the last schickel. so I have often thought about that, and have often thought that I probably would not change my last name because I would want that legacy to carry on since there would be no one else to actually carried on other than me. for that reason I would probably not take the husband’s last name

Kristin Pearson Samet awww, Kip, I was just trying to save you men a few sheckles !

Brett S. Harrison That actually doesnt bother. What defines a marriage is love not whose last name you have. What bothers me is when they take 2 last names, like “Kathy Wepner-Goldberg”. Crap or get off the pot

Kip Addotta Brett S. Harrison, Valid point, Brett! And thank you for not cussing. You’re a good man!

Brett S. Harrison Thank you and you’re welcome Kipalah. And I see no point to cussin.

Gary Schoonover My wonderful wife has worked very hard and become quite successful in her field of business and when we got married a couple of years ago she said she wanted to keep her name for that reason. I told her that was absolutely fine with me.

Walt Kaufmann Right on Kipster. Outstanding point!

Narda Enander At this point new laws requiring a woman to have paperwork for every name she has ever used to get or renew a drivers license. Even though I have carried my married name since 1972 I have to prove it by providing my birth certificate, marriage license and even my divorce papers. So heaven forbid some poor woman married more than once. It’s as far as I am concerned the only real discrimination law. Even if I did marry again I would nit change my name again.

Kip Addotta Narda Enander, interesting how a simple and honest question, by me has proven to be very educational for me! You bring great information! Thank you Narda!

Narda Enander Kip, not only are you a hysterical comedian but you are also intelligent and astute as well.

Kip Addotta Narda Enander, I am and have worked extremely hard to become, in my opinion, the finest, living, stand-up Comedian, however, my real passion is my family and information from people like you! With only 11 years of schooling, I am passionate about information! Without it I cannot do my work. People want to send me jokes. I do not want jokes! I want to learn from my friends and I am having a wonderful day! Thank you again, Narda!!

Amber Kathleen Ryan And why shouldn’t the husband take on the last name of the wife instead?

Kip Addotta Amber Kathleen Ryan, My dear, all that matters in motive! And BTW, what is your motive for asking this question?

Amber Kathleen Ryan Hmmm. I guess, because I too have had some hilarious run-ins with civil servants when I applied for passports or applied for work from time to time. But then, I’ve had so many names, they always suspect me of something. And… my daughter is running for school board using her maiden name instead of her married name and it just seems like the thing to do to avoid confusion. And I’m a feminist. And just in the mood, I guess. (Or, perhaps, your calling the wife ‘disrespectful’ for not taking someone else’s name, set off some alarms from the old days… my old days.)

Scott Shimamoto She’s not taking his last name because she plans to take half of his assets when they get divorced. She’s not THAT selfish!!! Haha

Craig Matteson I have friends who were not related bit both had the last name Monson. He always says he took her last name.

Kip Addotta Amber Kathleen Ryan, This is a very honest and insight flu bomment and I thai you for it! BTW, I am a Masculinist! So, I understand!

Kristin Pearson Samet It would be difficult for a man to understand the identity crisis that changing one’s name creates. I hate having to use three names on my facebook profile so people can figure out who I am. Had I to do it over, I would have kept my original name and never have to go through that “Kristin, who?” ever again ! Think about it like this: In general, for women, a man offering an engagement ring is a sign of love and commitment. In general, for men, your taking his last name is an outward grand gesture that reflects your love and commitment to him. Men don’t get the hype over engagement rings. Women don’t get the hype of changing names. Call it even.

Melissa Schickel, You know Kip, I also wonder, doesn’t the practice of taking the man’s name go back to the days of when a woman became a man’s “property”? Hence he paid a dowery for her and she then became as much a part of what he “owned” very much like his land, etc.? Isn’t that really where the practice originated? It was a way of distinguishing whose woman belonged to what man in the days of the earliest settlements. I know there are several countries where the woman do not take the husband’s name. I am fairly certain Mexico is one of them. India I believe is another.

There are also a couple of other factors at play. In general, men don’t change their names once they are married. So contemplating the meaning of a name and the identity crisis that can come with a new name is foreign territory to them. Because they don’t have to deal with it, many just don’t understand how it could be a big deal. However, this is an issue to be seriously contemplated by any couple planning to marry. Until this is discussed, someone’s going to be very upset and it’s not the way to start off a marriage. Just my honest two cents.

Don, i’m a comedy veteran. So what!

That’s what I do for a living.

People treat me like that’s all there is to me! Do you really believe that I don’t have close to a half a million jokes in my files that I’ve written. Are you trying to compete with me, are calling me out to see who is the fastest gun?

My pages are riddled with this sort of thing, every day! What do you do or have you done for a living, in your lifer and how would you like for people to relate to you about only that facet of your life?

I am a man similar to you, Don and I would like to be related to in that way, Don! How would you like it if all I sent were jokes about your last name, Mr. Blinky? Because that’s what you and many others do to me, Mr Blinky! I hope this has made things clear to you and every one else, Sir!

As I observe people, in their business practices, I realize that they don’t seem to be going for the “Win!” To put it simply they aren’t willing to make the commitments to the due diligence that is required to be successful! They don’t return phone calls, show up on time for appointments and be prepared for the appointments.

Once they form bad habits they seem to stubbornly hold on to these bad practices and defend them with the explanation that these bad practices are their style and will not change their bad behavior even if doing so would gring them to success!

I have met a young man that says he has goals he wants to achieve, however he continues to be distracted by things that will insure his failure. He stated that he wanted to speak to me about business matters and he agreed to call me in a few minutes, one evening. I waited and waited, but his call never came. I made a call to him and he begged off, saying that he had forgotten that their was a game on that he wanted to watch and asked if we could talk the following day.

Now, when you have a family to support, one would think that, “The Game” could wait, but not him! He was determined to watch this game and his future be damned. He Just had to watch this game. The next day came and went and there was still no phone call. I’m ready to hook this guy up with work that would help him support his family and further his career and he was too busy to talk because he was in a bar “Watching another game!”

At this point I gave up and lost interest in dealing with him at all! He was so programed, by society, that he had the right to  watch sports games that he believed that it was more important to watch another game. That was his right, as an American citizen.

I’ve run into this sort often! And these signs that I was seeing were the signs not of a man that loved sports, but a man who had a drinking problem because nine times out of ten “Sports” was connected to liquor. Sports usually is. And that, in reality, was what was holding him from being successful.

I have given up on this individual all together, because I would never let sports and liquor come between supporting my family and furthering my career!

Today i am saddened by the news of a friend of mine’s death!

I will miss this friend, but will not mention my friends name, lest I be confused with all the people who did not know my friend, yet, believe that my friend would enjoy all the cruel and hateful things being said about my friend, with no concern fot my friend or my friend’s family. And, of course people will use my friends name, in order to draw people to their posts and news items!

Yes, my friend said deprecating things about many people, but never more than my friend said about my friend’s self! And I’ve never known anyone who worked harder, including myself. My friend was someone to admire and I do truly admire my friend. God Bless you kiddo!

My friend was taken off of life support, today. I wonder if these people who are posting comments about my friend know what being taken off of life support means? Does a doctor do it? No! Does a nurse do it? No! Does a hospital orderly do it? No!

When someone is taken off of life support, the switch it turned off by a person with power of attorney or the closest relative. In this case it was my friend’s daughter that turned the switch off. That is how it is done! If anyone can find humor in this please let me know, because I cannot!

I am mourning the passing of my friend and will not go to any of my social sites, today, for fear that I might see the hateful things, I hear, are being said! No, today, I will hang my head down and cry, I am crying now! Good bye fiend! See you soon!
