Bad Ass Burger at Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar

 Definitely One Bad Ass Burger

bad ass burgerImagine if you will, a massive 10 oz. Angus Beef beef patty cooked to order with American cheese, and buttermilk batter-dipped deep-fried bacon. Then add horseradish mayo, lettuce, tomato, and a pickle. Now that’s a bad ass burger! You don’t even need the fries … but they are excellent as well!  Wash this all down with a draft Red Oak Bavarian Amber Lager and you really can’t get much better than this. It is not a lunch (or supper) for the meek at heart. The number of calories in this burger is a bit scary, but then it’s not something you’d want to eat everyday anyway. You could fast the day before. Then go on a cleansing diet the day after. I am all for eating healthy and many bloggers blog on that very subject. But, hey … a good burger once in awhile can’t hurt!

I first discovered Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar here in Cary, North Carolina in a magazine I was reading while getting the oil changed in my Nissan Xterra. The article covered the Top 25 Burgers in the United States and there, coming in at #14 was the Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar in Cary. Right then and there, I knew I would have to check it out. I am certainly a big burger fanatic. My favorite burger has always been the “Big Nasty” at the Stock and Barrel in Knoxville, Tennessee.  I am not sure I could choose, between the two, which is better.

Another favorite of mine at Bad Daddy’s is the Pastrami Reuben Burger, but that is definitely a story for another time because it is also an amazing burger. Especially if you are a fan of Reubens!.

Speaking of Bad Ass!

You should check out my novel, Serpents Underfoot, available on Amazon.com for $3.99 (Kindle version). It is also available in hardcover and paperback.  It is a bad ass, action-packed story of good versus evil with plenty of heroes and villains, political intrigue, romance, and American pride. And, when you do read it, please take time to leave a review. I am truly interested in your thoughts. They will help me make the sequel even better!

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Enters Plea of Guilty to Desertion and Misbehavior

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal Enters Guilty Plea

As I listened NBC air Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl making his comments about how his current situation is somehow all President Trump’s fault and how he can’t get a fair trial, so really he has no choice but to plead guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior, However, I simply see a prime example of why our Country is in the shape it is in … no sense of personal responsibility. We can always find something to blame! The President is a very popular choice now. President Trump has been blamed for weather patterns, floods, hurricanes, North Korea’s aggression, Iran’s support of terrorism, ISIS attacks in the U.S. The list goes on and on.

Leaving His Post of Duty Was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s Decision

Nobody forced Sgt. Bergdahl to leave his post in Afghanistan!  That was his decision. Furthermore, if he had a problem with his unit or mission, the U.S. Army provides a mechanism to relay your concerns in the appropriate manner. Every soldier know that desertion and misbehavior in the face of the enemy is a serious offense … at one time, punishable by death.

Six Soldiers Died Trying to Locate and Rescue Bergdahl!

So, as Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl tells his tale about how unfair this process has been to him and insults everyone in the military justice system by insinuating there is no way they could remain professional and to their jobs in light of a campaign comments by then candidate, Donald Trump, remember this!  Six soldiers who died in attempts to locate and rescue Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, including one who left behind a pregnant wife and young child! Perhaps, it would be nice if NBC focused a bit on the stories of those six soldiers. In addition, the five Islamic Jihadists traded for Sgt. Bergdahl’s release are back at large and probably planning to murder more Americans in the future.

The Blame Game!

This is all a direct consequence of individual Bergdahl’s decision to leave his post of duty in Afghanistan eight years ago. The blame is nobody else’s. He deserves what he gets. My sympathy is for the soldiers he endangered and maybe, his parents.
