Slammertime … You Can’t Snort This!

Lindsay Lohan MugshotFirst, my apologies to MC Hammer for the title of this post. I just couldn’t help myself.
If you haven’t heard, Lindsay Lohan is back in jail … oh, what a surprise. Is there any wonder that she is #1 with a bullet atop my Death Pool list? As if jettisoning yet another chance for this self-destructive Hollywood refuse to clean up her act wasn’t enough to raise your ire, we had to hear the pathetic pleas of her spotlight grabbing father as she was being whisked off, once again, to the clink, “She doesn’t need jail time, she needs rehab!”.
Really?!? You mean the rehab she’s continually walked out on, not even spending enough time there to unpack her bags? You mean the rehab she should have been going to the last few months since her last appearance in bright orange State-supplied clothing? You mean the rehab that most drug addicts in this country can’t afford or aren’t even given the chance to attend instead of multi-year pokie sentences?
This is a tragedy in the making that would be comical if it wasn’t so sad. A beautiful, talented, successful young starlet who continually tosses her blessings in the dumpster like they were last week’s Penny Saver. Worse yet, her public defense seems to be headed by an absentee Dad who has decided to show up now that the media circus is in town for the newest episode in this disaster reality show.
If you really wanted to help this girl, you’d sign her into a real high-security rehab unit. One she couldn’t walk out of, of her own volition, for a minimum of 60 days. Then, follow it up with a real Out Patient program, and mandatory daily AA meetings for another 90 days. Unfortunately, it is very likely that the system, her parents, and her support staff will continue to fail her until it it too late. At which point, the eulogies will be written and the finger pointing shall commence.
Via con Dios, L2!

I am NOT an Oprah fan by any means. But, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.  It’s worth the 5 minutes!

Why all the fuss, Rush?

October 16, 2009 6 comments

The incredible noise surrounding Rush Limbaugh’s attempt to be part of a group seeking to buy the NFL’s St. Louis Rams has become quite deafening.  He is claiming that he is being discriminated against and, in essence blackballed, from owning a National Football League team.  He bases that claim on the fact that his proposed inclusion in the bidding process by this particular group of investors was going to be opposed by the Player’s Union, as well as some of the more powerful minority groups in this country, for his numerous off-color and even racist comments in regards to the NFL and it’s players.

We could sit here and debate the man’s First Amendment rights, or whether or not a known drug abuser is fit for NFL ownership. We could argue if the NFL is a closed organization that has the right to determine who is part of their “club”.  We could talk about whether or not he has ever truly recanted his intolerant comments towards the players and the league.

But, all of those subjects, which Rush has been wrapping himself up in the last few days, are not and have never been moot.  That’s because the right-wing talk-show host has created this huge media morass after he was withdrawn from the interested investment group, by the group themselves.  That’s right … his own peeps didn’t want him anymore!  It wasn’t a liberal/minority conspiracy or lack of “American convictions” by the league and it’s ownership.  It was simply that Rush’s own people couldn’t afford the liability he represents if they were to make a successful bid … or perhaps they were just tired of hearing him talk.

So, we can spend all our time deliberating these hypothetical rhubarbs.  Or, we can devote our attention to some of the more pressing matters facing our country like jobs, the economy, healthcare, energy, or the recent story that the Arctic ice cap will possibly fully melt this coming summer.  Somehow, I think Rush will stay with the more selfish debate.  I just hope the rest of us can rise above the din.

Watch out! This thing may be loaded!!

WARNING:  THIS BLOG MAY CONTAIN EXPLICIT LANGUAGE AND ADULT THEMES! (Sorry, no porn)

I’ve been told I need an outlet.  Not that I have anger issues, mind you.  But, I see so much inane, insane and mundane things going on in the world around me that I can’t help myself.

So, this blog will be an ongoing rant about anything and everything – shooting, if you will, for the Soft White Underbelly.  Politics, Economics, Entertainment, Sports, Sex, Relationships, Religion, Family, Friends, and anything else that hits a nerve.  Though, anonymity will be well served here, no thing and no one is safe … not even me!
