>Yes, I’m going there. I’m not talking about Meet the Press, This Week With George Stephanopoulos or Face the Nation. I watch those shows and enjoy the content, usually. I’ll digress before I get political. A habit I have had for years is immediately turning on the TV when I wake up. Problem is I wake up early enough to hear Robert Hagee’s annoying-ass sermons. I don’t know if any of you have seen or heard of this guy, but from time to time he puts on a show with an Iraq War background that DOES have political overtones. Separation of church and state, asshole! Watching this crap is like watching FOX News, you can only take so much of that crap before the remote starts screaming your name. There is also a slew of services on TV that just wind up putting me back to sleep. Can’t we get some cartoons or something? Give the kids (and some of the bigger kids) something to watch. If you can’t go to an actual church for whatever reason, try this: Grab your good book, step outside your front door (or back door if you want) and there you are. You don’t have to go to a specific place dressed in your best clothes to show off to the rest of the flock. I’ve gotta run, I think ther’s a bush out in my yard that just caught fire, I’ll be back.

Get this, a Jets fan is suing Bill Belichick and the Patriots for, *ehem*…”deceiving customers.” He’s pulling for (cue Dr. Evil) $184 million! The guy’s name is Carl Mayer. He goes on to say, “They violated the integrity of the game” and “This is a way of punishing Belichick and the Patriots.” First, Belichick already has been punished and second, this kind of crap has been going on for YEARS. Steroids are just as big of an integrity problem and is more top heavy than Pamela Anderson in a centrifuge, so are you going to sue all the NFL players for “violating the integrity of the game?” Get a life man, seriously. I’ll even chip in for a coupon that help set you on the right path (see above) . I like reading good sports news and this ain’t it. As far as your precious Jets are concerned…GO TITANS!!!! See your sorry ass on December 23. Kansas City plays your crappy team soon after, hopefully they’ll get something going to knock what’s left of your hopes into the dirt.

>I’m probably going to be called an asshole for saying this but, Why is there such a big fuss just over Madeleine McCann? What about the other economically middle or lower class children who are missing? What about the Black, Hispanic or Asian children? Where’s their news coverage? Am I the only one who finds this disturbing? I just turned over from CNN earlier after hearing yet again about how there is no leads, the child in the picture wasn’t her, yada yada. No disrespect to the family, but come on already. This is very similar to the JonBenet Ramsey case (also a tragedy). You know I thought about putting a picture of Madeline up for reference, but then I thought, what about a picture or two of other missing children of different backgrounds. Problem is, which do I choose? If I do choose, in a sense, I become as bad as the media cirus.

>Dresden Files Cancelled!!!

>

This is what irritates me, just when you start to get into a show, they yank it. I’m not all geeked out over this show, but it was entertaining. I don’t watch much prime time TV, but this was one of the few. The only shows I watch now are: Burn Notice, Dexter, Californication and Real Time with Bill Maher. Anyway, back to Dresden. I got into watching this about halfway through season one after my brother-in-law told me about it. I found it a refreshing change from my normal viewing, after all, you can only take so much Law & Order (all of them) and CSI (again, all of them). Funny thing is, I’m not alone in my dismay over the cancellation. This is getting more buzz than a Ready Whip up one nostril and a Sharpie up the other. This whole thing is like buying a pet, you know it’s gonna end at some point, you just don’t want that to be so soon. For thousands of Dresden viewers, their pet just got hit by the network truck and fled the scene of the accident not giving much of a crap…just like a lot of other shows.

>DAMN HACKERS!!!

>Okay, now I’m really pissed! Some fuctard hacker busted into my account on ebay and started trying to pawn his crap using my handle. The one consolation I have is that ebay was all over this like a wet t-shirt. They locked the account down and notified all the parties who were going to be victims…let’s just say the jagoff was busy and was getting lots of response. Evidently, this whole thing originated out of Spain. How do you say in Spanish, “Keep your grubby little dick beaters off my shit!” Anyway, I must credit ebay with being so swift about getting this straightened out in such a short amont of time. The biggest problem was going through all the places I had accounts with and changing my password…that really sucked prong!

>I live in the Springfield area, and every single day, I see those hokey Branson ads that make them and the people who live in this area look like a bunch of inbreds. I mean really, when people are driving through this state and stay at a hotel, they turn the TV on and see that crap. This is not a true representation of the residents here. Although, I have seen my share of questionable to the Darwin theory folks around the area. It just makes us all look bad. Black people don’t like being profiled and neither do I. When I go out of state and talk with other people, the question always comes up, “So, where do you live?” I always roll my eyes and cringe when I hear that. Oh, and to those who live here and think they are part of the true south, forget about it, you’re a mid westerner, DEAL WITH IT!

I know I said I wouldn’t get political, but this is going to be more of a complaint of a different sort, so bear with me. Does the moveon.org ad state lies? It’s plausible. Does the ad contain truth? Again, it’s plausible. Now, what has been done on capital hill since this ad? NOTHING!!! Actually they did manage to pass a resolution to condemn the ad, so what’s next, give them the silent treatment and hold a hopscotch tournament? I am so sick of hearing about this crap and nothing getting done, so that is my real complaint. Look, if freedomwatch wants to create ads about how democrats are cross dressers, yet on the flip side, a lot of good legislation gets passed, then have at it. I’m sick of the moveon.org ad turning into a referendum on classified advertising. I really don’t pay much attention to moveon or freedomwatch, so I did what a lot of other people should have done, stop eye balling the damn ad and move on already (no pun intended). The more attention you give something, the more power it gets, just like some asshole I wrote about previously (and will remain unnamed). So, if either side just can’t seem to get past their childish antics, ignore them and get something constructive done. I’m still waiting on that heath care plan I’ve heard so much about and yet have seen so little.
