Welcome to Rantlets
The idea behind Rantlets came to be years ago. I was heavy poster on a view forums. I was known for my rants. I would always take the time to explain my opinions. While many would just throw comments out there with no backing or explanation I felt it was important to give some explanation of the reasoning behind the opinions I gave. Once I got the reply, from a friend, “Can I get the Readers Digest version. So for a while, after writing these very wordy rants I would end them with a one two sentence synopsis for those just wanting the “RDV”. Somewhere along the way my rants became known as “rantlets” and sometime after that I just had to buy the domain.
I don’t post on those forums much any more. Instead I would take to this blog, then for a time I was annoying the shit out of my friends of Facebook so I came back to this blog again and started posting. If I had the time I’d post all day long here. There seems to be a never ending amount of fuckery out there that needs to be exposed but I simply don’t have the time. So when I do post something now, it’s because I feel it’s important.
I’ve noticed that most people go through life seeing things the way they want to. Even the smartest people I know are not always able to see the difference between reality and opinion. I find this frustrating and that’s the main purpose of Rantlets. Seeing the reality of the situation is my specialty. I don’t claim to be perfect. I don’t claim to be a good person. I just see truth of the situation and try my best to explain it. This usually comes with a great amount vulgarities and name calling. Like I said, I don’t claim to be a perfect or a good person. And if I am ever proven wrong, I will absolutely admit it. We learn more from our mistakes than our successes.

There are many reasons why I believe Colin Kaepernick’s National Anthem protest is wrong. However, I’d like to start off by saying that I don’t hate him for what he is doing at all. In fact, what he did in a great many ways proved perfectly the point...read more
There are so many reasons why you’ve got to vote for Hillary Clinton. It should be obvious to anyone. Just the mere thought of anyone ever having to say, “President Trump” should be enough to get every thinking man and woman to vote for Hillary...read more

Today is the Beginning of the End Until August… It’s true, today really is the beginning of the end until August. It marks the end of pretty much non-stop entertainment of sports and TV. The year starts in August for me. August means that summer will...read more
Why I Stopped Debating Religious People… Being an atheist I used to allow myself to get sucked into religious debates all the time. In my defense it’s really hard not to when you repeatedly hear the stupidest things fly out of the mouths of the religious....read more
Make Donald Drumpf Again… So I finally took the time to watch John Oliver’s brilliant take down of Donald Trump or rather, Donald Drumpf. Every single minute of this video is a pure delight. An amazing blend of truth and comedy wrapped up in one delicious...read more

Sad Thing About That Miracle… So a couple of years ago on Facebook I came across this post from NBC LA about a shark attack in Hawaii. As a person that loves sharks, I dove right into the article. Seems that yet another idiot thought it would be a good idea to...read more
