Homeless People | The Romance of True Freedom

Homeless People

tom-nardone-homeless-peopleHomeless people are called vagrants, drifters, beggars, pan-handlers, and so forth. As a society, some of us tend to look down upon homeless people. We are offended at the fact they just walk the earth, with their hand out. We believe homeless people simply depend on working people for a little bit of their hard earned money. To my shame, I admit I too once judged these people. I no longer do. Thiking about these people recently,  I have determined I have a great deal of respect for homeless people. Continue reading

Commitment: I Beg You All, Love Yourself Enough to Avoid This

The Commitment Coefficient

tom-nardone-couchI do not like making commitments to other people. I do not appreciate being put in a position to where other people depend on me. Chances are if you ask me to do something, it is most likely something I do not want to do. If I were to give you a commitment, well then I have now added pressure to the task. Continue reading

Question Society’s Rules, or You’ll Miss Something!

Tom-Nardone-rulesIn our society today, we have rules. Rules or laws are involved in everything we do. Most people abide by the rules of their society, but no one obeys all the rules. When it comes to rules people make their decision mainly on the basis of two things; what is the penalty, and what is the likelihood of being caught? That is just the particular type of assholes we are as Americans. For the record, I proudly count myself among all of you assholes in this regard. Continue reading

Not Giving a Shit, This is the Power of Being Uninformed.

Not-Giving-a-Shit-tom-nardoneI might very well be the most uninformed person in the entire country. I have not watched single news broadcast since the towers came down. I am happily uninformed. I could not name three people in the United States government. I live in South Carolina, and I could not tell you the name of out governor or the name of a single member from the house or senate of any state. Yes, I know this is Awesome; let me tell you all about it! Continue reading

Rat Race, To Hell With That , I Don’t Follow Sports Anyway.

 

rat-race-tom-nardone

Many people in their jobs strive to be the best and I think this is great. I think it is what makes a company great. When you have people so committed to being the best that they give it their all, and do their very best. I do my best while I am at my job, and I rather enjoy it most of the time. I would always rather be at home, but there are days when I have fun at work. I do take pride in what I do while I am doing it. Many people are simply in a rat race.

Some people unknowingly bend themselves over a barrel and patiently wait for the talcum-powdered fist to make its introduction. This is often how the rat race begins. Continue reading

Infidels, Worry Not. | Asalaam alikum from Tom Nardone

Picture1I was driving home in traffic the other day and was mad as Hell at the level of chaos. I thought it would be nice to live in a world without traffic. I pondered what it would be like if I was the only person on earth.

One day I wake up and all of the people are just gone. I am literally the last man on the earth. What would I do? Continue reading

Fast Food Rules of Engagement

tom-nardone-fast-foodI don’t eat anything from fast food restaurants ever. There are several reasons not the least of which is I find it to be incredibly unhealthy. There are benefits to it I suppose. It is quick, easy, and there are often times tempting prizes or toys that come with certain combo meals; hey, I get that. I worked at a fast food restaurant for three years when I was in high school and perhaps I have seen too much.

There are many of you, I suspect, who frequent these fast food places, and I fear many of you are not aware of the rules of fast food restaurants. If you read me, or if you find yourself on my blog for the first time, then I love you. I would not want to see any harm come to you, or the people you care about so please, heed my words for your own sake.

Kids Are Visual, Give Them a Show!

Tom-Nardone-kids-axeIn life, everything that isTom-Nardone-kids-doc accomplished is done so, through communication. Communication is the only way anything happens. If two people don’t tell each other how they feel, they will never date, or marry. If an employer does not tell his people what is expected of them, they will not meet his expectations. If my wife doesn’t tell me to make dinner, before she leaves work, she will come home to a husband playing Xbox, and have to cook. Kids are no different in this way.

The attention of a child is a hard thing to get. A child is a difficult audience. You cannot always gain their attention by Continue reading
