I haven’t written anything in a while but there has been too much f*ckery going on this past week on the Idiot Tube aka the American Media so I will get both of them out w/ one blog posting.
Once again, we are allowing ourselves to fall into the media trap and further confusing the whole notion of the ‘chicken vs. the egg…..which comes first?’. Is the American Media the fault for all the senseless news that we are being barraged with or are they simply honoring a demand from us ‘the village idiots’? Let us look at the Tiger and the Salahi cases. (google both of these if you haven’t heard of them but I am sure you have)
Case #1: The Tiger Woods Fiasco
Why the shock of the possibility that the man is cheating on his wife? Are we now going to act like cheating has boundaries? Newsflash: IT DOES NOT! Rich/poor/educated/black/blackasian/gay/midget/albino….we are all human and there is an innate human need to seek something ‘better’ or search for ‘greener grass’. But there is also ‘common sense’ that says…at some point you have to stop searching and deal with what you have. But we also have established that Common Sense is not that Common. Therefore, Mr. Woods is just another guy who failed in that aspect of being human.
***Sidenote*** Cheating sometimes the time is inevitable, part of life (reasons stated above). The other times, there are contributing factors that we refuse to discuss. If you have EVER been cheated on, have you asked yourself….’did I do anything to drive this person away?’ or do we always rush to judgment and blame the cheater. If you get cheated on by all of your partners, you might want to check yourself.
I don’t condone cheating but for the simple fact that it happens so often and sometimes by the people we least expect might mean that we need to change our conversations from blame-passing to some really deep thinking.
Black People and Race:
Now some black people went from f#ck Tiger and his non-black claiming self to ‘Fuck Tiger- that’s what he gets’. WTF!!! He wasn’t claiming 100% black PreGolfClubSaga and he won’t be PostGolfClubSaga. Kobe is still Kobe. Ice T, Ice T. Magic Johnson won’t change tomorrow. Find something else to focus on. Takes too much to hate one people who aren’t as black as you.
Once again if you are upset because Tiger was supposed to be a good role model for your kids – Newsflash: your kids are already FUCKED (couldn’t hold that one back). If they were on their way to being screw ups/cheaters/bad golfers etc, it is YOUR fault as a parent, not Tiger’s. Stop looking for someone else to blame and focus on your own household.
Message to Tiger:
Do whatever you have to do to fix your home, avoid the interviews and please don’t feed into this bullshit. You are still are great golfer and continue to perfect your game. You will be loved for golf and I still won’t care about your personal life unless you start f*cking little kids with golf clubs.
Case #2: The White House Party Crashers:
This one is pretty simple….
For the Secret Service:
SHAME ON YOU. You FAILED. This is the POTUS (just learned this term few weeks ago…..now I am forcing myself to use it) we are talking about, not crashing a Hugh Hefner bunny party. That being said….let the Secret Service and Dept. of Homeland Security figure out how to do better. Hopefully the POTUS will use this opportunity to address HIS OWN protection. Do we want the Secret Service to come give a bunch of statements about what they will do to fix this situation? I hope not, because it’s the SECRET service. I do not NEED to know what they do and despite the media’s watering tongues for info, you shouldn’t either….Just keep the (Vice)POTUS and their families out of harms way.
Message to the Salahi’s:
I hope your asses join the Balloon Boy family in jail for between 3-5 years…..no more – no less. The justice system needs scapegoats to teach American’s a lesson. The attention whoring needs to stop somewhere. There is only so much you can do to chase your 15 mins of fame. Stick to youtube, twitter, sex tapes and faux-reality shows. When you start depleting resources of the public (ex. Mobilizing and entire state’s police/fire/EMT services) then you should be punished for it.
Hopefully this is an example to the rest of us on how the American Media is turning us into a bunch of idiots — from the ones that sit and watch RIDICULOUS reality TV Shows, actually dial in to vote for contestants, actually go out and audition and even worse subject ourselves to it — that getting an education and living a ‘normal’ life is not a thing of the past. 15 minutes of fame is exactly what it is because all that tabloid money won’t buy you happiness. Don’t get me wrong….I have no problem w/ youtube, sensible reality shows, tabloid news etc, we all need a little comedy in our lives (I know I do) but when you are turning to supposed ‘NEWS CHANNELS’ and this is what they are throwing in your face and you sit there and watch it…….please GO PLAX YOURSELF!!!!
I heard a rumor that today was ‘World Aids Day’. If you turn on your Idiot Box today, tune to CNN and actual real life issues like deadly infectious diseases, wars/world peace, hunger crisis, undereducated kids etc aren’t been discussed ……TURN THE SHIT OFF!!!
***I am actually upset I took 15 mins of my day to write and post this but: 1. I don’t claim to be a real journalist and 2. my little blog post does not compare to the fellatio fest of the American Media hype***
