Episode 19: Schooled for Scandal

schoolforscandal-LST064930b

Look I am not saying you CAN’T enjoy a celebrity or sports figure, but be a little fucking selective and remember they are human beings and human beings with a LOT of money and power are rarely the sort of people you want to trust with money and power.  NFL stars and their dog fighting rings, or murder charges, or beating the shit out of their finances in an elevator.  Directors who sleep with underage girls and flee to France, or you know divorce their wife and marry their stepdaughters who may or may not have been underage when the first slept with them…Dude, Woody, you know I am not saying you DID anything, but come ON, you had to know how this would play out!  When say they marry a woman young enough to be your daughter, they don’t mean that literally! Politicians with wide stances, difficulty defining the third person singular tense of to be visa vie sexual acts, or knock up another woman while your wife is in the hospital fighting cancer.  Say what you will about most writers, at least they are open about what horrible people they are, it’s rare you hear about poet or novelist doing something just awful and people who read their rarely say :” Wow, Bukowski did that, I never saw THAT coming!”.  If you like someone, like them for their work, because you have no idea WHO the actually are.

Episode 18: Deja Vu All Over Again (Gun Control)

guns guns guns

Something here is seriously wrong and we got to fix it, and a lot of people blame guns, not me that isn’t my way, I am going to agree with the old saw, guns don’t kill people, people kill people the PROBLEM is, the people killing people are all using motherfucking guns!  So here’s a real simple solution, the one my Mom would use:  take the guns away from the people.  Someday, when you’ve proven yourself mature enough to handle them, MAYBE, we will talk about you getting some of your guns back, but until then, no one gets to have ANY guns, because SOME of you aren’t responsible enough to use them wisely.  I’m sorry, your Father and I have given this a lot of thought and we know you’re angry, but this is what we are going to do.

Episode 16: “I Talk the Law on the Law One”

Jury duty is one thing you can do that doesn’t take any real effort that contributes positively to society.  AND it will make you feel good!  If you are the hard core law and order time,  you can put a bad guy in jail!  If you are the peace and love lefty lib type, you can set and innocent person free!  If you Henry Fonda type, you can hang up the trial and piss off every single person in the trial!  Perfect for the sociopath asshole who hasn’t yet committed a crime!  Jury duty is one small step to making our criminal justice system a little better, or a little worse, depending on the kind of person you are.
