“What are you going to put on your resume – ‘dumbass’?”~ Kurtwood Smith

This one was just too good (or bad) to pass up for this installment of Dambreaker.

For many countries, this past Sunday was Father’s Day. A day of gathering and a day of celebration, sometimes having a BBQ or taking Dad out to lunch or whatever.

Just a whole day to celebrate fathers in the nation. If not, the world. Not only fathers but fatherhood in general.

Father’s Day was founded in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas.

Its first celebration was in the Spokane YMCA on the 19th of June, 1910.

Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909 at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them.

Although she initially suggested the 5th of June, her father’s birthday, the pastors did not have enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June.

Several local clergymen accepted the idea, and on 19th June 1910, the first Father’s Day, “sermons honoring fathers were presented throughout the city.”

A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. 

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father’s Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become commercialized.

United States President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress.

In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus “[singling] out just one of our two parents”.

In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.  Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. In addition to Father’s Day, International Men’s Day is celebrated in many countries on November 19 for men and boys who are not fathers. dumbasses

So there’s your history.

But a swarming nest of ignoramuses have shown their asses. Because of this feminist movement of “#YesAllWomen” has seen the light, now we have a bunch of ill-considered, no more brain cells having, loud mouthed, dumb twat waffles who believed that they needed to speak up AGAINST Father’s Day.

#EndFathersDay ??? Really?????

These women are taking shit far too much or too serious.

I could not believe what I read!!!

Where the hell do these people come from?? And what I mean by that is where are the rocks from which they come out from??????

Let’s take this one by one… keeping in mind there’s a ton of this crap going around on Twitter. But we’ll deal with this image here.

Tasha Polwright: #endfathersday because celebrating patriarchy and male dominance is #rapeculture. Why do you keep using them words? I don’t think them means what you think them means. Celebrating Father’s Day is NOT glorifying male dominance or patriarchy – where the male is taken the lead role in the family.

Rowan: #endfathersday Because its a #TriggerWarning for all womyn who have been abused by their fathers. Okay, first of all – allow me to buy you a dictionary because the word is “women” … got it?? And no.. there is NO trigger warning for abused women. There have been fathers who have abused their children. Yes there most certainly has. But one day is not going to TRIGGER anything. And one day is not going to TRIGGER ALL WOMEN who have been abused. Some of them have gone to receive help. Others have found a way to deal with it. To say that it will trigger ALL WOMEN… you’re so full of shit. Learn to spell!

And then she says something else too:

Rowan: #endfathersday because masculinity is what causes abuse and is nothing to celebrate! Just gotta keep going, don’t you??Apparently you are the leading professional in “abuse” and you know exactly where it comes from and where it gets started. Since you know so damn much why don’t you set your ass up in front of the United States Congress and make a bill about it and make sure its signed into law? Miss Professional of Abuse.

Sharmeka Martin: Glorifying the rape culture and patriarchy? No thank you. Hmm… I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that either you have a crap relationship with your father OR you’ve had no relationship with your father whatsoever. And that’s just sad. Rape culture though? What the hell are you talking about?? This is the United States of America, NOT the Middle East. There is NO glorification for people who rape in this country.

Carly_Jackson: because 100% of child abuse is from men. typically white men. we need more #singlemothers. For this one, I will admit that I went to Twitter to find out what was this person’s malfunction. Let’s just say that what was seen cannot be unseen. Regret filled in for sure. But let’s deal with the tweet. “100% of child abuse is from men. typically white men.” Just how old are you? And better yet, just how DUMB are you? 100% of men are abusive.. well thank you very much for that. Let’s go get Susan Smith and Andrea Yates and get them out of jail. Since 100% of abuse is from men. Wow… I am sure they wished your information was at their trial, otherwise they would not have gone to jail.

How do you explain this then?

Go on… tell me again that its 100% of men!!

But what is even a WORSE statement than that, is the fact that you think that the world needs more single mothers. Well dumbass, you need a man (father) to get with woman (mother) in order to have children and make that woman a mother. Unless you are implying that ALL married women need to just up and divorce.

And one more, cuz this is just irritating my own brain cells to be even bothering with it all.

Phoebe Kwon: #endfathersday because fathers are still considered the head of the household, they don’t need to be recognized. #YesAllWomen. Ohh, here we go with this again!! The whole “YesAllWomen” at what point do these groups think that they speak for ALL WOMEN because some of the women that I have talked about this issue with are giving you the finger!!  Yes, fathers ARE considered the head of the household. That is how things roll in the United States. And in a lot of places in the world. But there are other places in the world where women are in charge. But more than likely, Phoebe, you aren’t living there. Feel free to move. As far as the fact that fathers do not need to be recognized? There is a Father’s Day because of equality issues with having Mother’s Day. Soooooooo… if we don’t need Father’s Day then we don’t need Mother’s Day either. Nor Grandparents’ Day. Nor do we need to have days off of work for many holidays in the calendar year. How about that?????

Now I understand that there are some men who are on the planet who have slept with women and these women have become pregnant and had children and a lot of the time these men absolutely are NOT a part of their own children’s lives. There are deadbeat fathers out there. And there are abusive fathers. But to wipe away a holiday because of this SMALL group of men is immature, ridiculous, and very ignorant.

#EndFathersDay ……. no thank you!!!


Nikko Landeros

“I’ve had great fans, and they’ve been so loyal over the years.”~ George Strait

Most recently, the USA Sledge Hockey team took a visit to the White House to meet the President of the United States of America.

It sounds as if they all had a thrilling and most wonderful time.

All of the members are still living with pride for winning GOLD for their country.

I have to say as a sledge hockey player that I am still proud of these guys that they have won back to back gold medals.

Even the President of the United States was thrilled to have members of the team there at the White House.

It seemed like a great day for everyone as there were Olympians and Paralympians together.

So then we introduce to you this national treasure: Nikko Landeros.  nikkoFB

He posted an interest on Facebook that he wanted to go to the George Strait concert this evening in his area. And then a little bit later he also announced that he is now on Twitter.

I guess sooner or later it happens to those who have become our nation’s top athletes that Twitter would be a necessity.

As much as I have heard a lot of people that don’t really care for Twitter, the story for Nikko Landeros today gets very exciting.

I don’t know exactly how long he’s had his Twitter account but it nikkowould pay off in spades.

George Strait contacted Nikki Landeros via Twitter and promised him PERSONALLY  that he would have tickets waiting for him at the show that he so desperately wanted to attend.

“Thank you for representing our country!” Strait says.

I’ve always known George Strait to be a very patriotic person, proud of the country that he lives in and he’s always proud of all of his fans who are so loyal to him.

Being that I’m not exactly into country music, I can just imagine that George Strait just as any other musician is grateful to have fans that enjoy what he does. And when it comes to his fans actually going to Sochi, Russia and playing for the USA and winning GOLD as a team back to back… that’s gotta make him so incredibly proud!

I don’t know what’s going to happen this evening for Nikko Landeros, but I DO hope that he takes his gold medal with him. And I do hope that he gets to meet George Strait in person at some point this evening.


Thank you, Mr. George Strait

This story is great to write about. You never really know what’s going to happen when you reach out to certain people, especially on Twitter.

Thank you, Mr. George Strait for doing this for Nikko. And thank you again, Mr. Nikko Landeros for representing our country, playing your heart and soul out in Sochi, and winning back to back gold medals for Team USA. I am proud of you!



“There’s a big difference between falling in love and being in love. There’s a big difference between infatuation and falling in love.”~Phil McGraw

A lot of things are trending it seems. Things are trending that …. in my own opinion…. shouldn’t be.

But here’s one that was totally lost to me.

#WCW, or Woman Crush Wednesday.


This one apparently is focused on Twitter where you hashtag the name of the woman in which you admire or desire the most.

Umm, HUH?? 10501790_10153841823407306_8798799775254079032_n

At what point did someone actually think that this was going to be a good idea? But I’ll digress about that now because I cannot fathom the scope of the trendy topic any way.

I thought at first that this was one-sided. I thought that this was started by a MALE. And that it was an exercise FOR MALES on Twitter. To explain who their crushes are or were.

But we are now in the 21st Century. Women have their crushes too. So I guess we are all one happy go lucky family over on Twitter, posting about our crushes and desires of people whether past or present.

Sounds like to me, as if its more of a popularity contest. Sounds to me as if this is only going to inflate egos of those who are chosen. And that may or may NOT be a good thing.  Commonly in my experience, its bad. But not to say that it will always and forever be bad.

The things that get famous, popular, and trending astound me sometimes. And with Throwback Thursday coming up, those of you who are reading this who have me as your friend on Facebook, well you KNOW that sperm photograph is coming.

So maybe I’ll dust off the ole Twitter account. Perhaps I’ll even sign in. And I may or may not hashtag the heck out of some ladies that really know how to flip my switches. Maybe I won’t.

You’ll just have to go to Twitter to find out.

The things that trend though  these days. Mmm….


“I’m living life as best I can – but I’m not exempt from failure and making bad choices.”~ LeAnn Rimes

YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME?!?!?!??!!?!??!??

So apparently whatever-genre-singing-star-she-is-now LeAnn Rimes went on a feudal tidal wave on Twitter over the weekend.

She’s apparently had enough, and now wants “her truth” to be known. That’s right, HER truth. Not the truth of anybody else.

What the heck is that supposed to mean?!?!??

I have no earthly clue. But its HER truth.

And wouldn’t you know it, a few of her Twitter followers attempted to help her in her posting fury.

Some even made neutral comments, but LeAnn Rimes just would not let it go. Because its HER truth.

Ladies and gentlemen, subscribers, blog readers, and visitors…… THIS IS A TEXTBOOK EXAMPLE OF THE DEFINITION A ROLLER POSTER!!!!!!!!

Instead of realizing that what she was doing was only hurting herself, she continued on in the same behavior to garnish attention to whatever it was that was bugging her. She wants attention to HER truth.

I understand that Rimes has a ton of problems and issues, but get off the cross, we need the wood. There are people in this world who have far worse problems than LeAnn Rimes. Since I made the choice to NOT follow her any more, I have no idea what’s going on with her and her issues. And secondly, I do not care. ringo-yeah-you-idiot

In a world where people who are in the limelight are always screaming bloody murder about their privacy being invaded and what not, LeAnn Rimes takes her situation and pulls it inside. Instead of telling people to leave her alone and allow her to handle her problems…… she GOES to people with them!!

LeAnn Rimes is losing it more and more each and every time that I hear about her. The news NEVER gets any better for her. And that’s partly due to the fault of the media. The other part is LeAnn HERSELF!!!!

Damage Control is nothing but a dream by now. Unless she hands over her Twitter account to some publicist or something. Nobody is honestly interested in HER truth. Not when she lies to herself.

Poor LeAnn Rimes and her antics.


“Insanity is knowing that what you’re doing is completely idiotic, but still, somehow, you just can’t stop it.”~ Elizabeth Wurtzel

I don’t suppose anyone else is going to come out and say this, so I guess that I will.

The hashtag, a symbol used most commonly with the social networking site of Twitter.

However this little bugger has crawled across the fiber optic wires throughout the rest of the world of the Internet and has plugged its unusual and ugly face on to other social networking sites like Facebook.

And honestly I have to question your motives as to why??? Do you even know what you are doing with the hashtag?

Twitter’s Help Center page describes the usage of the hashtag as the following:

  • People use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search.
  • Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets marked with that keyword.
  • Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet – at the beginning, middle, or end.
  • Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.

So it does have a use. But ONLY on Twitter.

There was a time not that long ago where Facebook and Twitter could be linked together and whatever posts that you put on Facebook would appear on your Twitter feed, and vice versa.

I’ve seen that all too often. And as sad as it seems, that’s just the way it is as people did believe it to be a good time saver at that moment so they didn’t have to keep writing the same thing over and over again as they logged into these various social networking sites.

Now whenever I am logged onto Facebook and I see hashtags, I look to see if the original post came from a person’s Twitter feed.

The last straw was that I just read a quick e-mail. AN E-MAIL that had a hashtagged emotion to it.

It just makes a person look uneducated, or perhaps they have fallen victim to the typo and they refused to correct it.

Now its done ON PURPOSE outside of Twitter where it really belongs!!

How #smart #do #you #think #this #looks #when #you #read #it?


Now people are using the hashtag for an expression of feelings, emotions, and actions. Verbs and adjectives. Come ON!! Obviously you have been doing this for too long that you forgot the original intent and purpose that Twitter created the hashtag for!

I’m REAL close to being “that guy” when it comes to the hashtag to inform the person who is using it incorrectly. I’m telling you, that’s going to stir a lot of pots of shit when the next person that does it and does it incorrectly.

If you want to use Twitter then that’s perfectly fine. I personally choose not to use it as it limits you to a certain amount of characters to add to your feed. As I understand that there is a character limtation, I don’t really bother with abbreviated phrases and what not. But why is the hashtag on Facebook when someone is intentionally writing it on their profiles?

Secondly, I recently found that my own account was compromised. By the time I figured that out, I just didn’t care any more so I’ve not bothered with it. But I have nothing against people that actually continue to use Twitter.

Just keep Twitter in Twitter.



“We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ladies & Gentlemen. Disciples. Happy Followers and readers. I give to you the winner of the Overgrown-sized Testicular Fortitude Award for March 2012.
I present the brief story of:
Michael Stone.
Michael Stone, aka “Mad Mike” is an 18 year old high school student from Minnesota. Being that it is almost high school prom season, Mike took his chances and used his Twitter account to contact hundreds of porn stars and other people in the adult film industry and asked them if they would escort him to the prom, provided he paid for their transportation to reach him.
Over and over and over again, one after another: Mike’s requests were denied. An endless flurry of women not seeming to be interested in the event and declining his invitation.
Mike however, didn’t give up. He did the best that he could (with the 140 character limit that Twitter has) to make his supplications known that he was in fact, dead serious.
More and more rejection. But Mike seemed to have been immune to it.
And then one said “YES, if you pay for my way to and from.” … paraphrased. The name of the adult film star, you will have to find out for yourself.
Mike couldn’t have been any happier. However, the school board couldn’t have been more displeased.
They’ve told Mike that the adult film star could not attend the prom with him. That he could not have her as his date. And they’ve even gone as far as to pull up some stupid rules to back up their decision. And what’s even more ridiculous is that they’ve threatened to have the adult star arrested if she shows up.
Again, Mike is within the legal age of his state and area. I personally don’t see this adult film star corrupting the entire prom. I am sure that there would have been very strict rules and guidelines that Mike would have had to follow if this would have been allowed. And probably Mike would have had to sign some sort of waiver and a written statement that she was not there for the purposes of sexual activity.
But still… he totally had the testicular fortitude to sit there time and time and time again to ask several women out as his prom date. It had seemed that his patience was going to pay off. But not anymore.
All I have to say about it is…. Where was Twitter when “I” was in high school?? I could easily see myself doing something like that. Knowing that eventually every rejection that  came through would turn into acceptance.
But no. There was not a Twitter to be had. Instead, I had to do it “the hard way”. I wrote a letter to a famous singer at the time to ask her to join me at the prom. But I did not offer to pay for her transportation costs.
I also had to write it twice. The first time, there wasn’t enough postage on it because I had forgotten that the price of stamps went up. And then the second time, my parents caught the letter in the mail as I was on my way to school. They caught it, and then threw it away. A few years later, I would find out that they had done so. Talk about mad!
But I have to salute this guy. He’s 18 year old. He knew what he wanted to do, and he set off in such a grand style in order to get it.
I think that the school board though, is kind of over doing it juuuuust a little! It’s a prom date- not a Caligula style orgy.
I’m sure that the adult film actress would’ve had herself so protected by her management, her agent, and many more measures of security that if Mike would’ve tried to pull something that she would have had him land in jail before he got his zipper down.
I hope that Mike gets his prom date. Actually, I hope he gets ANY date. But now that he’s becoming viral, I am sure that there are going to be all kinds of females ready and willing to date him. Just for the sake of him going viral.
I feel bad for his inbox, his Twitter, and for any other social network site account he might have.
