Mass-ConfusionSo Rob O’Neil is the guy that allegedly put a bullet in Osama Bin Laden’s dome and he gave an interview to Fox News and a bunch of people are upset.  Maybe it’s just me but I wanna hear what this guy has to say rather than seeing the latest selfie Kim Kardashian has tweeted of her turn cutters hanging out.

I also wanna know why they dumped his corpse at sea so quickly.  Look….this is the US Government we are talking about.  They aren’t exactly truth mongers with us citizens.  I’m sure we could prop him up and drag him around the US on a mini-tour like “Weekend at Bernies.”   Have him be a guest host on “The Voice.”   Have a “Terrorist Week” on Jeopardy.  Let him drive a cab for a weekend in New York City.  The possibilities are endless.

I illustrate the absurd by being absurd for a reason.  The majority of Americans bitch about the economy and the direction this nation is headed but do they really spend the time studying what is happening with our government or are they more interested in the dilemma of if Bruce Jenner wants a vagina?

92 million Americans are out of the work force….that’s different than unemployment and far more concerning.  It is estimated that five out of ten jobs today will no longer exist in ten years but we all seem to be giddy about landing on a comet.  We can’t find a cure for cancer, ALS, AIDS etc., but we are kicking the tires of a rock a half a billion kilometers away just to find Jason Priestly’s career?

We are soooooo concerned about being politically correct when this country was built on being a melting pot of cultural differences.  Different is good.  It’s the yin to the yang.  It causes one to look at a different opinion and heaven forbid we LEARN from these situations.  I broke my iPhone this week, shattered the screen and the first thing I muttered was “Dumb Pollock.”  I didn’t expect Al Sharpton to show up at my door.  I didn’t print flyers or t-shirts or try and organize a march.  I went out and found a kid with greasy hair, bad skin, and lots of piercings and had him fix it.  I paid for his services with money that has “In God We Trust” on the back of it while many schools have banned the Pledge of Allegiance because it contains “One nation under God.”  If this country was a horse we would put it to sleep.  Wake up America before the day comes because it’s closer than you think.

broken americaThis Country has become K-Mart—-ya can’t walk down an aisle without finding something broken.  Anyone can walk into the White House.  People are freaking about Ebola when roughly 36,000 die from the flu each year.  The guy that was supervising a Haz-Mat team transporting an infected patient to a departing plane was in a short sleeve shirt carrying a clipboard and HE was in charge.

Over 48 million Americans live in poverty.  No one says “please” or “thank you” any more.  This week some college football players left a tip covered in feces.   Let me break that down for ya; they must have wiped their ass with some currency and left it on the table.   The middle class is evaporating like steam off a hot lunch.  They drug test those looking for jobs but marijuana is legal in two states and medicinally 23 states have made it legal but this country has no problem dishing out Xanax and antidepressants like they are flying out of a broken Pez machine.

This week in Florida the two candidates for governor squared off in their first debate but one wouldn’t come out to start the debate because the other candidate had a fan under his podium.   What is this a Van Halen concert rider?  Get the other guy a freaking fan or if ya can’t find one take the fan away from the one that has it.  The state of Florida is Darwin’s waiting room and we need to focus now more than ever on the issues.  The sad fact is lobbyists control this country.  Getting elected takes money and when you get into office you have to be a fool or in complete denial not to realize those big bucks sway votes.

So many brave men and women served in the military and countless gave their lives while in the line of duty.  We owe it to the veterans to get our shit together and not worry about the size of a soft drink or the logo of a sports team.  Wanna change the name of the team???  Buy the freaking team.  Now my blood pressure is boiling and I don’t have health care because I am part of the record 92 million out of the work force.  The American dream has turned into a nightmare…..better go and take my Xanax.

adrian-peterson-son-abuse-1Here we go again.  Another week and another problem for the NFL.  This time around the player in focus is Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.  He was deactivated for last week’s game as child abuse allegations surfaced.  Peterson allegedly injured one of his children while using a “switch” in an act of discipline.

I am not a parent but I can speak about corporal punishment based on being on the receiving end as a kid.  I had the best parents a kid could ask for and I am very fortunate that my mother is still alive.  I was a handful as a kid.  I’m a handful as an adult.  Even when mom is over my house and she wrestles through the drawer looking for a wooden spoon my first reaction is to run to the dining room table and get ready for “the chase.”  Dad was a “belt guy.”  The sound of that belt unbuckling has carved an indelible tattoo on my subconscious.

So what is my point here?  Simple.  Time out wasn’t an option for me.  It simply wouldn’t reinforce the point of discipline that I needed to behave.  I never looked at what my mother and father did as “abuse.”  I misbehaved and I deserved it.  To hit a child with a switch is beyond my comprehension but keep in mind that is how Adrian Peterson was disciplined as a child.  It doesn’t make it right by any means but keep in mind what we allow is what we teach.  In order for us to evolve as a society it’s necessary for us to acknowledge or mistakes and correct or behavior.

Ray RiceBy now we have all seen the second Ray Rice video where he knocks his then fiancé Janay Palmer out with a solid left hook in a casino elevator.  It’s terrible.  It’s disturbing.  There is no excuse for his actions.  Some have come forward to say “How could she marry this guy after this?”  That’s her decision and not the point.  The NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, is now in hot water because some believe he saw the second video as early as April and yet still decided to ban Ray Rice just two games.  Goodell denies this but again that is not the point.

The first video we all saw back in February where Rice is dragging Palmer out of the elevator should have been enough.  That was the effect of his actions so you know there had to be a cause.  THAT’S the point.  The NFL has the means necessary to obtain the video of what happened inside the elevator.  This was a casino.  There are cameras everywhere.  Although I think Goodell is lying through his teeth when he says he didn’t see the second video until Monday I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.  The fact that there wasn’t a full blown investigation here based on the first video is enough for me to blurt out “cover up” at the very least.

So who is to blame?  Many people over the course of many years.  The NFL is a big business that makes billions of dollars.  Exemptions have been made by many coaches of many players for their off the field problems because a player can run fast, jump high or hit a ball far.  THAT’S where the blame should lie.  This is not a problem that happened overnight.  This has been festering for years.  If anything good can come from this horrific situation it would be that coaches, managers, commissioners, owners and executives will stop “looking away.”  That’s the way it’s supposed to be but that isn’t the way it is.

jennifer lawrenceI have an iPhone.  I am not a celebrity.  I also don’t have a picture of my wang in my camera roll.  For the past three days now we have heard from celebrities that are “SHOCKED” that their camera phones were hacked and their nude selfies have been splattered across the internet.  Well let me slap you a dose of reality.  If ya wanna get naked with your better half I’m all for it but if ya don’t want to take the chance that a picture of your venus mound is gonna be on TMZ then don’t take a picture of you in your birthday suit with your smart phone.

Ya ever need to go and get your phone looked at?  You’ve had problems with it for hours and fear the worst but some 17 year old kid with bad skin fixes the problem in thirty seconds.  We all have seen this happen so where is the news when a serious hacker is able to crack the code of a smart phone?

Kate Upton has made millions showing off her massive cleavage and now she is “OUTRAGED” by a nude selfie of her and her boyfriend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, posted on the internet.  If I were Kate I’d be “outraged” as well as there are more curves on the body of her boyfriend.  Put down the camera phone, call room service and order a burger.

Ya notice all the affected celebrities are women?  I guess only politicians are worthy of having their wang being newsworthy.   My other guess is that the female body really is beautiful.  A naked dude looks like he’s breaking the law and let’s be honest about the penis…..not very attractive….kind of resembles a very long thumb minus the nail.

These celebrities are all saying they are “victims” and that is one thing I agree with—victims of not using common sense.
