Tags: , ,

In theatrical script writing, sketch stories, and poetry, a vignette is a short impressionistic scene that focuses on one moment or gives a trenchant impression about a character, an idea, or a setting, and sometimes an object. -Wikipedia I was sitting outside of a bar early on my shift a week or two ago, right […]

Black Lies Matter

Posted: 18th March 2015 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

I did not want to give Ferguson and Fat Albert Garner in Staten Island a single molecule of oxygen, but we had some protesters a few weekends ago in my town, obstructing traffic and marching through the streets, chanting “Black lives matter” and “I can’t breathe” and “Hands up-don’t shoot”, and it really is aggravating. […]

A Few Thoughts On Current Events

Posted: 2nd March 2015 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

If you have read my post The Pig Trap, you know of my absolute bewilderment at the current state of our country. Our government is utterly lawless, just making shit up as they go along, creating regulations and executive edicts to bypass the Congress and the Constitution, committing crimes in the furtherance of those goals, […]

My First Attempt At Political Heckling

Never before has it happened that a post here gets both the Politics and Douchebags tags, but here we are. I was sitting in one of my favorite spots downtown several days ago, when a silver SUV pulled up a few parking spaces away, and a fashionable guy in a tie got out and went […]

Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Strafe The Border

Posted: 8th July 2014 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

In my post The Pig Trap, I posited that our current situation is not a left/right or liberal/conservative or Democrat/Republican issue, but an “us against them” issue… “we the people” versus the political class, and our current immigration mess illustrates that perfectly. The truth is that the political class of both parties are perfectly OK […]

Regarding “The Pig Trap”

Posted: 19th April 2014 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

As I have said more than once, the main point of this blog is just simple therapy for me… I just need a creative way to blow off steam, and beating my wife, taking up recreational heroin, or soaking these drunken douchebags down with bear mace and leaving them gasping and writhing in the gutter […]

The Pig Trap

Posted: 14th April 2014 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution (1996) I had a very memorable and thought-provoking passenger a while back that I never wrote about because while I found him fascinating, he seemed […]

Shit Should Be Better

I was sitting outside a bar on a slow weeknight last week, when I saw a heavy-set black woman walking down the sidewalk toward me. She was wearing a tank top, shorts, and flip-flops, carrying a hardback book in one hand and what looks like two plastic grocery bags of clothing in the other. She […]

Stop Being Black

Posted: 31st July 2013 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized

I am so pissed off about this Trayvon Martin bullshit… Nevermind that an innocent man has been hounded, threatened, and vilified by the media and the low-information idiots that believe this deceitful nonsense they spew, our government personnel and our tax dollars were used in collusion with the biggest racists in the country like Al […]
