Argument break, time for coffee,snacks, and bad caddy jokes...


Q: What is the difference between a Cadillac and a porcupine?
A: Porcupines have pricks on the outside.




Materialistic Lawyer

A lawyer opened the door of his Cadillac CTS, when suddenly a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the lawyer was complaining bitterly about the damage to his precious Cadillac.

"Officer, look what they've done to my Caddieee!!!", he whiningly said.

"You lawyers are so materialistic, you make me sick!!!" retorted the officer, "You're so worried about your stupid Cadillac, that you didn't even notice that your left arm was ripped off!!!"

"Oh my god....", replied the lawyer, finally noticing the bloody left shoulder where his arm once was, "Where's my Rolex?




Mid Life Crisis

A man in his 40's bought a new Cadillac CTS convertible and was out for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair, and he decided to open her up.

As the needle jumped up to 90 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. "There's no way they can catch a Cadillac CTS," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 100, 120.... then the reality of the situation hit him.

"What the hell am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.

The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it and the car. "It's been a long day, this is the end of my shift, and it's Friday the 13th. I don't feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go."

The guy thinks for a second and says, "Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back."

"Have a nice weekend," said the officer

Cadillac is an all American Icon.

All those commies talking sh!t about the Cadillac here are now officially in NSA's cross hairs as communists.

Your thoughts are now classified as Weapons of Mass Stupid Thinking.

Enemies of the State.

You are hosed.

Drone strikes plans are being drawn up as we speak ......

Caddy,s demographic isnt the 1%, its those who aspire to be part of the 1%. True one percenters buy better. Meanwhile, im still mounting tires other people toss as garbage, out in the driveway with a hi-lift jack and a long screwdriver.

We used to hunt deer in an eldorado. Other people looked at us funny. Still do.

so its politically correct to care what someone else thinks, and that is All Bad? wow.. what a sad state your beliefs have gotten to.

What someone else "thinks " does not pay your bills, most people learn that very early on in life. How can you consider simply disagreeing with politically correct as#@&%es , or anyone else for that matter, as somehow the "sad state of your beliefs" .I don't get it.

The commercial was aimed at a demographic who have worked very hard ,have a little talent , ambition, and drive---only to be constantly maligned and slandered in today's pop and political culture after,and only after, they have become lawfully successful.
Moreover, the slander usually comes from a deranged generation of pampered losers that believes , like Arson avowed, that job creation is equivalent to murder, that any kind of monetary success is suspect, and that wealth creation always comes at somebody else's expense, despite all the abundant evidence to the contrary.
The commercial is saying to the caddy guy that it's alright "go ahead flip these little weenies off"
Hence, that's why these people are getting their underclothes in a bunch over this guys swagger.
They've been flipped off.LOL
(Me thinks you can dish it out but you can't take it.)

In this case ,giving a rats ass about what a bunch of gutless politically correct hypocrites think---who are only concerned with currying favor in the politically correct environment (while hoarding their own stash) I repeat , is increasingly based upon class warfare and this stupid stupid attempt to somehow criminalize earning wealth.
Trust me on this---it's a generational thing. Something about the spoiled mentality of the post--WW2 generations.

Your analogy about bolts on El Cap made no sense.
Go get some better analogies --- but not from Werner.

you didn't "just" disagree. You sneered at anyone who thinks caring what others thinks is good. You raised not caring to the epitome of rightness. I tried to show you that it is not black and white. Why should people care what others think? because sometimes it is the right thing to do. Because we share this world. If you pollute my water supply, you can damn well bet that I will care.

But its also not the opposite, which would be only caring what others think without protecting your own interests.

There is a middle ground.

This is not one of those "sometimes" pal.
No one gets brownie points for caring what others think if they disagree with it---just for the sake of agreeing or caring.
To do so would be an example of a neutered herd mentality taken to its mushiest extreme.

And I didn't "sneer" at anything. LOL

I....I......pfffft

F*#king love my Cadillac.

I'm no 1% er either. The things a beast. Comfortable and the ride is so sweet got major hp under the hood and here's the kicker.

The thing was made in America. I could buy a Benz or a BMW but I want my ride made in the USA. I'll own one from now till death do us part.

Like the electric model but I would not buy a car like that the first year it's produced. You are going to want that about year three of production.

I hope they start cranking out clean diesel turbo units soon in the CTX.

I like what WTF posted.

Selling the farm in order to pay the piper is what domestic productivity is all about in our modern times. Of course it's always been hard to pay the freight and not feel personally ripped off...
