Now, before the smut runs rampant through your brain, hold on to your panties. The title of the blog might lead you down a road - a road you are not supposed to be on.
One of my daily routines is surfing the Internet. Reading Fox News, conservative bloggers, the Drudge Report, anything and everything that might relate to politics, world events and then, and only then, do I look at the more frivolous nonsensical crap, like Yahoo trending, or human interest stuff. The shit... yep, that's right, I said it... S-H-I-T - that is considered news today is, simply put, amazing.
The other day, I came across an article regarding Jane Fonda. You know her, "Hanoi Jane", who really should have been tried for treason back during the Vietnam era for her disgusting display on anti-American antics with the North Vietnamese. Shame, shame. I don't care how many Golden Ponds you've starred in, or who you have been married to - treason is simply treason. There are no excuses, well unless you are so greedy that you think publicity means selling your soul to a communist.
Lately, news coverage has been bordering on voyeurism. I've got enough crap going on in my life than to see headlines about congressman who love to use their "smart"/dumb phones to photograph their penile shortcomings in gym mirrors, or dress up like Tigger the Tiger, or tap their shoe on a bathroom stall - "Hey can you spare a square" or cheating on their cancer stricken wives with a blond ding-a-ling photo journalist, or using smoking cigars as some sort of pleasure tool. Come on, really? Is this what our world has come to? Remember the good old days where sex was kept in the dark, or at the very least, behind a red door? As the world economy hovers between dire and dismal, are journalists (or Penthouse letter writers) desperate that what other people are doing in their bedrooms, or out in public, is really folly disguised as news?
So, Jane Fonda. Apparently old Janey-girl has started to give advice about having a healthy, invigorating sex life at age 73. Well, thank you very much Jane. Between the nausea I feel every time B. Hussein Obama opens his pinheaded mouth to the absolutely disgusting picture of you having healthy sex at age 73, my never ending diet might just have some light at the end of the tunnel. Can you imagine your parents sitting at home, playing cribbage with the neighbors, and saying... "Oh we are so proud of Johnnie Journalist, our son, who went to Harvard, earned a degree of higher education", only to then find out that sex smut stories are what million dollar education bought them?
Society has enough on its hand fighting a terrible economy. Are we really so desperate that news outlets can't find something more meritorious to write about then some over the hill celebrities who think and actually believe, that all of America wants and/or needs to know about their sex life?
The other night the Republicans gathered and began the saga of the debates. I'd love to say that I was sitting on the edge of my chair, glued to Fox News, watching 10 or so candidates banter back and forth about what they are going to do to fix the mess we are in. Sadly, I fell asleep at 1930, and missed the entire thing. The next morning, I watched the highlights - and was really irritated by the notion that some journalist had enough in the nut sack, groin area to ask Michelle Bachman if she was going to be subservient to her husband. Are your kidding me? Oh all the questions in the world that a serious news man could ask.. this dim watted light bulb wants to know about subservient candidates? What is the world coming to? Again, the question borders on the bedroom. I am not voting for a candidate because she is a woman, man or whatever. I am looking for someone who can help get us out of the mess created by a bunch of morons in Washington, D.C.
Well, I better get going, I think I hear my husband calling me - and that means only one thing - Ha ha... its my turn to do the dishes!
