Big Brother, Big Crock

Perhaps Big Brother believed that a season of new twists and temptations was just the ticket to old and new viewers tuning in, maybe it would have been the case if the network/show producers had the slightest integrity.  As this season has shown, CBS will do and allow anything for ratings, only they may have gone too far this time and may very well lose the majority of their loyal viewers, and surely no new viewers would want to tune in to see that train wreck!

The first (and certainly most detrimental) mistake that CBS/Big Brother execs. made was in fixing things so that conveniently the loser Paul was brought back into the game. He had his shot at playing Big Brother already and it makes the new players look as if they were duped straight out of the gate, not to mention it being an insult to viewers. Then they allow obviously unstable people into the game, all for ratings and attempt to make viewers believe that “it’s how the game is played”, many have used the word “bullying” in describing Josh’s behavior. It’s painfully clear that many of the so called competitions are tailored to certain players abilities (or lack of).

All Big Brother execs and CBS have done is to insult the viewers they do have, rather than make sincere attempts to hang onto them dearly. They need to be reminded that the viewers make or break any show, happy viewers, successful show. They must understand that while it’s a delicate balance, they can have a scrap of integrity and still have drama and satisfied viewers that will tune in each week.

Odd how things “played out” so that Paul was safe for so long (supposedly it was a choice viewers made), yet by allowing the consequence, twist and temptation, Cody and Jessica were guaranteed a ticket out the door pretty much. Funny how 1 (ONE) poll claims that Paul is a viewer favorite, however if you actually read many of the comments viewers post(ed), they want him gone as much as Josh, IF NOT MORE. Of course I just read a poll that stated that 78% of those polled want Josh gone based on his bullying alone! Most realize that he’s Paul’s puppet and that he’s the one sullying up the game.

Get a clue, please the viewers you do have before they’re gone too, by the look of it the network can’t afford that. Stop allowing players into the game that are unstable and abusive, all in the name of media negative attention. Stop beating dead horses and only allow return houseguests if it’s a special like Big Brother returning Losers! The cast this season was very boring, not in the least entertaining, and downright offensive! Sure I know that you want drama and trouble but try a different approach because personalities like Paul’s, Ales’s, Josh’s and Christmas’s while they can do the devious, two faced, sneaky, manipulative, assinine antics, they also drive viewers far and away.

Celebrities And Freedom Of Speech?

Here we go again, further proof that our right to freedom of speech is being snuffed out! Alec Baldwin is not one of my favorite people, but because he lashed out and said something that offended people, he catches hell for it and is forced to apologize for his words, his feelings

A British reporter made the claim that Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria was tweeting about wedding presents and television appearances, during James Gandolifini’s funeral, on Thursday. This set Alec off and he allegedly tweeted some threatening things in reference to George Stark, one tweet said that Alec would put his foot up Stark’s “f’ ing”  ass but that he’d dig it too much! Alec also called him a toxic, little queen in a tweet that said that Alec would find Stark, and “f” him up!

Brutal it may be, but however warped or different someones opinions or feelings are, they are still entitled to them no matter what. As long as someone isn’t acting on their hate, anger or dislike, then the truth is that these are still words, no matter how ugly they might be. Threats are a horse of a different color though, you can’t go around threatening people, that’s not okay, and is often a precursor to violence. 

People out there say mean, hateful and ugly things each and every day, it’s an awful fact of life, you can’t stop them, you can’t change people. You’ll never see the day when everyone agrees on everything, people are all different, opinions are different, feelings are different, and people were raised differently. That being said, some will voice their opinions, some will hide them for fear that they differ from the majority, or minority, and some will pretend that they feel the same as those in the crowd that they happen to be part of, that particular day! You can say that if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, then say nothing, or you can say that sticks and stones will break bones, but names will never hurt you, but that doesn’t mean that anyone will comply.

The good, the bad, and the ugly, opinions are all different, about everything, not just race, homosexuality and religion. As long as no one is hurting someone with violence, you can’t stop a person from saying what they feel, otherwise you’re suppressing their right to freedom of speech. It infuriates me that out there, every day someone is name calling or making a statement that someone else doesn’t agree with, and that’s just fine. However, you take a celebrity and put them in a situation where the press is around them all the time, they are caught saying something when they are mad, or simply answering a reporters question with honesty, and the next thing they know, it’s on the six o’clock news! They are put through hell as a result of saying anything just because they are in the public eye! 

Fans are the ones who make these people celebrities, but I think that they forget that they are people too. They aren’t the personalities that they pretend to be in movies and on television, they have their own feelings and opinions about everything, just like you and me. Some are fans, until they hear about some scandal that’s been started by something they said or did, it’s like people want them to be some pretend character they’ve seen them play in movies! When they see a darker side……. and by that I mean…. when they realize that the celebs opinions differ from their own, all of a sudden they crucify them! Paula Dean is a sad example of that, she answered questions truthfully, owned up that she used the “N” word, and her so called fans turned on her in the blink of an eye! Rather than praise the fact that she was honest, especially on such a touchy subject, no people would rather jump on her and see her sink as a result of her not lying!

We’ve all got problems, we’ve all seen our share of tragedy in this life, there’s so many more important things to raise a ruckus about. Look at those poor children going to St. Jude’s for treatment of all types of cancer, suffering beyond belief. Imagine what their parents are going through having a child that is terminally ill, watching that child’s brave fight, each and every day. It makes you wonder why there’s such hell raised over what someone said in anger, what they said years ago,what was said in honesty, or why a celebrity going on a rant gets so much attention! Every one of us has been in a situation where our choice of words could have been much better, we’ve all been pee-d off about something and said things in anger that we shouldn’t have. Maybe we should stop looking for hidden meanings in what someone says, or better yet, maybe we shouldn’t keep feeding it media attention so that a flicker turns into a bonfire!

Cesspool Society!Death Of Religion!Homosexuality!

This Paula Dean situation has me so awfully disgusted with the state of things in this country, I can’t even begin to tell you! My grandfather always said that the only thing that will fix this country is another civil war, I never understood why he was so sure that such a strong action would ever even be needed, until now! There is zero privacy left for any of us, even our own government spies on us, we’re in danger of losing our right to bear arms, and there is no such thing of freedom of speech. Sad that our own citizens are the ones that have robbed the rest of us, that, along with our freedom of religion! They went so far as to disallow prayer in schools!

Back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s life was totally different, people had some religion, currently most children don’t know God and have never heard of the ten commandments, parents don’t make it a priority! Yes, back in the day, most teens went to the drive in rather than go out partying all the time, getting slop drunk and having sex with anyone they could find. Girl’s weren’t encouraged to get pregnant, safe sex wasn’t an issue because they were taught abstinence instead. Freedom of speech was a reality and those gays that were around, they kept their preferences to themselves, rather than flaunt their sex lives. Can you imagine them having the audacity to have ever pushed for the rights given to married men and women, back then?

In those days many people were able to go to bed, without stressing about whether or not they locked all of their doors and windows! Crime wasn’t nearly as bad as it’s become, but what do you expect in a world that’s become far worse than Sodom and Gomorrah? Step back and look at it 100 percent unbiased, without feelings and just letting your logic lead. Don’t let the fact that you might have a gay friend or relative, influence you. Now, think of the Bible, where in that book did you ever see it written that a couple of the same sex should be married? Where does it say that God finds that acceptable? Before you spend a year trying to look, I’ll tell you, you will not find either in the Bible anywhere! Once again, people want to change the word of God, to say what they want, attempting to justify their behavior, their actions, their lust, their sins. In the not so far future, many of us will rue the day that churches will cave in and allow gay marriages, pre marital sex and Heaven forbid, suppressing our right to freedom of speech!

Now I truly believe that God is all loving, that if we follow his word, we will indeed be rewarded. However, the Bible lets us know that while he is a loving God, he will not allow sinners to be rewarded, or for the good books words to be twisted, warped and downright contradicted! It may be a drastic example, but think of a torturing, thieving, abusive brute, who slaughtered twenty people and nineteen of them were small, innocent children. Can you imagine him standing at the gates of Heaven saying that nowhere in the Bible did it say that one couldn’t slaughter 1 adult and 19 children? That those words weren’t written there? How about a gay man standing there, saying that the good book stated that a man shall not lay with another man, and that he and his partner only stood? Or, the same telling God what the book that God wrote did and did not say? How if it was a sin, then why did so many others in the world, also condone it and push for their equality? Huh, there will be endless others in line behind him, who will have to turn back and take a 1 way ride into hell!

Please understand, a good Christian shouldn’t hate or abuse homosexuals, but when it is condoned by a person, it then becomes their sin as well. By agreeing that they should have all of these different rights that are expressly afforded to normal married men and women, well that is the same as you yourself being gay! There’s something else you can forever search the Bible for, and wont find, nowhere does it say that you can be a homosexual, you should go out into the streets pissing and whining about not having rights that a man and woman have, or that you should publicly speak about your sexual likes & dislikes, preferences, sexual positions, etc. Take a lesson from normal heterosexuals, keep such things private! That should be common sense, at the very least, as well as common courtesy!

 

Paula Dean Verifies A CRITICAL Fact!

Paula Dean proves the point that others, including me, have tried to make, freedom of speech is dead, there is no such thing anymore! A person cannot be entitled to their own opinions, because if they differ from those of other people, they are crucified! I don’t give a damn if you’re in the public eye or if you’re a hermit, the problem is that the majority of those people who throw stones, want others who see things differently to keep it to themselves and lie about their feelings, yet gays can flaunt their homosexuality and push for the same rights that were given to heterosexuals! Look out, anyone who believes that homosexuals should keep their sex lives private like normal heterosexual couples do, and stop fighting against nature pushing for the same things that God allowed a man and a woman to share, run for the hills if you won’t blatantly lie and say that it’s okay, you approve, it’s not a sin!

Can’t the vast majority of more mature folks remember (heterosexual folk), back when it was frowned upon for our young to go out having sex with anything that moved? Partying and taking drugs and ending up pregnant? When if you were gay, you kept it private? When people put value on carrying on their own bloodlines? Hell, even crime was drastically lower in the world! A time when religion mattered, people went to church and cared as to what the Bible said, rather than trying to twist the word of God? Anyone who has ever read the Bible knows that altering any of the words was a sin in itself! It isn’t enough that people have tried to kill God all together, but they have also tried to erase the good book as well, claiming that God doesn’t have a problem with a man laying with a man, or a woman laying with a woman, that he gave us no commandments, that he’ll love us no matter how many, or which of his laws we break!

It’s ironic because I’ve never really liked Paula Dean, I mean, I don’t know her but saw her a couple of times on television. But now, she is a victim, like so many others, at the hands of those who live in their glass houses, watch out, karma’s a bitch and will come back to bite hard! How dare anyone criticize her for her own personal opinions, how dare she lose anything as a result of not pretending to think the way that other people want her to! How many Caucasians have been discriminated against, yet we tend not to piss and moan about it, trying to use it to gain attention or cry fowl! You know, I have friends that are African American, but I am so damned tired of this racial complaining bull shit, that’s what made all of us suffer to begin with, when it came to the Presidential election, enough is enough!

I truly hope that those people out there who agree that Paula Dean’s freedom of speech, has caused her demise of sorts, ban together and do something about it! Otherwise, if this madness isn’t stopped now, we’ll all pay in the long run. The rights that every one of us were once given, are in danger of being lost forever, from the right to bear arms, to our very freedom of speech! We can’t even look to our so called President, as I’m sure I can guess where he’ll stand on the matter! There is endless room on the bandwagon, jump on so that we can do something about it!

 

 

Doctors and Celebrities Abusing C-Sections!

Physicians take oaths, they promise to do no harm, these oaths aren’t to be taken lightly and just because times change, the promise to do what is best for the patient does not. Any type of surgery can have risks and doctors know it, wealth should not affect whether or not a doctor will agree to do surgery, either.

I am shocked and sickened by these doctors who do Cesarean sections as a matter of convenience, especially for the rich, the celebrities. I read where Jessica Simpson decided that she wants to have her baby two to three weeks ahead of schedule! Since when is it okay to tell your doctor when the baby will arrive? What the hell ever happened to having a baby when nature decides it’s time? Unless of course, there are complications and you have to have a c-section to save the baby’s life. Physicians who perform c-sections, just because should have their licenses taken away from them, never to practice medicine again!

Call me old fashioned, but a womans body, and the baby know when it’s time, enough interfering just because some celebrity has to go out of town, or because the “star” has a feeling that the kid should arrive when she wants it to, be a woman and do what women have done since the beginning of time, let it happen naturally! I blame the doctors with this particular problem going on, these spoiled celebrities have no clue, they are used to their money getting them whatever it is they want. They aren’t planning their lives around their kid, their planning their kids, around their lives, and it’s disgusting!

If Jessica Simpson is terrified that something will go wrong, just because she has a feeling that is bull, it is not a reason to indulge her! It’s said that she’s intuitive, really? ALL women are intuitive, again, it’s not a reason to tell your doctor when to take the kid, and to do it via c-section! This madness has to stop, always interfering with mother nature, and doctors should know better! I guess it’s true, I guess that money really can buy you anything!

 
 

Mermaids The New Evidence Leaves Even More Questions

Animal Planet has always been my favorite network, hands down, and with the Mermaids installments, it’s proved that it remains a force to be reckoned with. Rarely have I seen a topic that has positively, mesmerized viewers, like the Mermaids topic, sadly, other networks will probably attempt to jump on the bandwagon, and come up with some lame show or other.

Okay, so as for the Mermaids the new evidence show, did it look to anyone else like the video the American tourists taped of the mermaid on the rock, like the mermaid had hair? It certainly seemed like it, but as we have already established, they do not have hair, I’m assuming that hair would only serve to cause drag in the water. As for the video shot during the rescue exercise, clearly that was not a seal, so someone tell me, why on earth does the Government continue to deny and to cover up such things? Are Mermaids a threat to national security? I still say that it is because they realize that most of the people in the world would have a problem with these creatures being killed off, like so many other species have been, and are being.

So many questions….. how is it that these creatures know to avoid us? They are intelligent enough to develop weapons to hunt fish, but does it end there? Do they believe in a higher power, or do they wonder how it is that they came to be? The first show stated, when they explained the aquatic ape theory, that when our ancestors began eating food from the sea, it accelerated brain function, their intelligence, that being said, wouldn’t these creatures be more intelligent than us? Did you ever wonder why it is, that dolphins are friendly with humans? And the fact that they help catch fish in certain countries, being intelligent enough to remain calm when the nets cover them? Interesting. Remember the woman who was diving in the ocean among the whales? Suddenly the whale, as if playing, pulled her by the leg deep down into the water until she thought that she was going to drown. As if sensing that she was in trouble, the whale shot her up to the waters surface!

Animal Planet really outdid themselves with these shows, capturing the attention of all of us. I fear that now though, there are some out there that will try to be big shots and go in search of these creatures. Obviously they have existed, pretty much from the start, and have not wanted to be found, and with good reason. I agree that we cannot co exist with any new species, men are too quick to want to kill that which they cannot understand. Of course, I do believe that the Government knows a hell of a lot more than they pretend to, if they had a Mermaid in captivity for any length of time, as reported on the first show, you know damned well that when it died, they dissected it, gathered all of the information one could possibly gather. Still, in typical political fashion, they deny, deny, deny, and claim that no such creature exists!

I would love to know more, as I’m sure all of you would, but not at the expense of killing off another, entire, type of species, that may or may not be relatives to mankind. The way the Oriental people slaughter whales, I wouldn’t be surprised if they too, now go out and hunt these poor creatures down. They are safer wherever it is they are, and must be pretty damned smart to know to avoid humans. It’s heartbreaking that they cannot avoid their weapons though, that’s probably the reason that the government doesn’t come clean, because they don’t want to stop the testing that’s killing so much marine life, they want to continue making their weapons of mass destruction, at all costs.

 
 

Mermaids The New Evidence

Isn’t it something that after all of the information that has come out, pertaining to the new species (Mermaids), the Government still continues to allow the sonar testing, thereby killing ungodly numbers of marine life, as well as, who knows how many yet undiscovered species! Why? Why would the Government cover up such an incredible find? It can’t be religion, because religion can co exist with this type of discovery. They cannot pose a threat to us, in any way, quite the opposite I fear. I can only guess that because the species are so closely related to us, it’s like they are killing our own kind.

History doesn’t lie, for as long as there has been Government and military, there have also been cover ups from the start. I’m sure there are still skeptics out there, but the video shown last night speaks for itself, sure there are scams out there, more of them than factual evidence, but you also have to ask, why would legitimate men come forward with it, exposing themselves to ridicule from their peers? Why bother at all?

I personally believe that it would be ignorant not to believe that there are new species out there yet to be discovered, especially in the oceans of the world. face it, men have intruded on nearly every last inch of this planets land, but there are a vast number of places deep in the ocean that we never have been able to explore. I think it’s a huge mistake to drill in the seas, haven’t we trashed this planet enough already? So many animals have become extinct through no fault of their own, simply because men thought it macho to kill them, and thanks to over population, they have no habitats left of their own, the same will happen to these Mermaids, if there are even enough left to procreate, that is!

It seems that the military testing will continue, no matter what the price is, and any hope at all of preserving these elusive, mysterious creatures, will be gone forever. I think the testing should have stopped the first time that it killed so many whales, dolphins and other marine life, but as we’ve all seen, they have continued it. Why is it not okay to abuse and kill cats and dogs and other land animals, yet it is perfectly acceptable to wipe out entire families of marine life? And what horrible, painful deaths all of those whales, dolphins and mermaids died! Once again, man has slaughtered innocent life, and for what? To test some new weapon? Weapons that I’m sure, in the scheme of things wont help anyway. What is that saying about all of the countries standing in puddles of gasoline, each with their own matches?

The cost of these tests is simply not worth it, and the saddest part of all is that it shouldn’t be stopped just because of these mermaids, it should be stopped because of the countless lives in total, that the testing has resulted in being lost! I truly hope that after all of this attention, people ban together and demand that changes be made, demand a stop to the sonar testing, and demand that the drilling cease, or at the very least, keep it to a bare minimum!
