So North Korea is giving up on further nuke testing and development in exchange for 240,000 tons of food aid. Well this is good news, lets hope it sticks this time. Maybe Kim Jr. just loves Carls Jr. so much he just had to give …

So my post from yesterday turns out to be a giant hoax. Future Ex Banker apparently doctored the receipt and it went viral. I can’t really apologize to anyone specifically because nobody was identified as the person paying the tab. A few 1% sympathizers decided to chime in and call me a dbag and one actually used the term “class warfare”. Ummm FEB is the dbag….lets keep it real here. If I’m guilty of anything here it’s reading an article off the Huffington Post …. getting pissed…then writing about it. I didn’t break the story and I explicitly stated I don’t hate people who make tons of cash. As long as they have integrity and treat people with respect. I come from the most blue collar neighborhood of Boston….but we have produced a number of high profile millionaires and even our own billionaire. Lord knows….I have everything I need but wouldn’t mind being rich myself.
Apparently nobody looked at my poll where a few people voted who HAVE had this very thing happen to them.
Whether you’re smart, rich, pretty or just plain gifted in any aspect of life….I have no tolerance for those who like to rub that in faces of those less fortunate. And for that I will never apologize.
Oh yeah, class warfare is a term I despise as well. For all you paranoid rich folks out there….if it truly was “warfare” you all would have been dead a long time ago.
It’s 99 to 1 remember?
The closest thing I have ever seen to class warfare is when Mitt Romney was going around chopping up companies, stuffing all the cash in his pockets then leaving thousands of families for dead as he shipped what was left of their jobs off to China. Then he stands with a political party that would love nothing more than to eliminate the very programs designed help those same families stay afloat.
Generally, it’s this lack of integrity and respect for those less fortunate that has played out over and over again through the years that provokes such a harsh reaction to a 1% tip.
I know…some of the most beautiful houses in Dorchester. This is what it looked like in 1889….when the Carruth family owned pretty much the entire patch of land from Carruth street down to Adams street. When you’re the director of the Old Colony Railroad, Dorchester Gaslight …
For the past decade Cadillac has done a complete 180 and has managed to put itself back in the conversation when you speak of the best luxury car brands on the planet. One of their most successful and acclaimed models has been the CTS-V.
At 556 horsepower right from the factory this is the fastest 4 door car on the planet. American muscle at it’s finest my friends. But this is America….and we love horsepower so much we couldn’t help ourselves….we needed to know what this little monster could really do. So along comes a company called Hennessey Performance out of Texas….and they decide to give the CTS-V a shot of steroids. They make a 600, 650, 700, 800 and….wait for it….
the CTS-V1000 twin turbo —- at 1000 horsepower —- This is the Barry Bonds of Cadillacs.
