Brad Pitt Not Chicken To Make A Change

It’s a shame that more celebrities aren’t like Brad Pitt. It’s a shame that, in the case of the vast majority of them, they instead worry about where their next plastic surgery is going to come from, rather than stand up for causes that have little to no voice or support. If they do support anything, they will choose such causes as trying to make every last citizen on the planet support transvestites or homosexuals, when Heaven knows there is an excess of support for those types of issues, even though bigger, more critical issues are being swept under the mat!

Animals have no voice whatsoever. They are slaughtered every minute of every day; it’s for food in some cases, but it’s also often for sport, their fur, tusks, teeth, fins. You name it and they are killed for it, and that’s why so many have become, and are quickly becoming, extinct, by land, air and sea. Many groups claim that they are against animal cruelty/abuse but yet the cruelty goes on every day with nothing being done and no change in sight. Take chickens for example. Have you ever seen how those eggs you buy from the supermarket are obtained? Have you seen how the chickens that supply them for you are treated? So, now, if you do care, you might say, “well, how can I help? There’s nothing that I can do about it,” and you’d be wrong! If the consumer refused to buy eggs from chickens that were not free range (free roaming), then you would see things change real fast!

Each cage holds six to eight chickens, preventing the birds from so much as spreading their wings, laying down, or being able to turn around. Said cages are piled up, one on top of the other, and there are sometimes ten cages high! Those chickens never feel the grass underneath them, never roost the way that chickens love to, never dust their feathers like normal, free range ones can, and never scratch around the ground, which they are wired to do. The most disgusting, cruel part of all is that the chickens that supply the eggs at most all stores are the ones that live under these awful conditions! I don’t care what any chicken farmer says, there is no excuse for this type of cruel confinement, and if they can’t make a run outside for the chickens to live, while they do nothing but supply eggs for their entire lives, then the so called farmers shouldn’t be allowed to have them. Perhaps the farmers would say that they had to go and fetch the eggs after the chickens laid them, big damned deal, or maybe the eggs wouldn’t be clean enough for them and they would have to wash them, big deal. If the everyday citizen has to follow the rules (some would say rules of common sense and decency), then so should the farmers, as they chose to go into the “egg business” and are no different than anyone else. Change needs to come, and it needs to come soon.

It’s strange that children are supposedly not as mature as adults are supposed to be, and yet most children would know better. They recognize that animals should not be treated the way that many are, and should you take a child into one of the chicken buildings at one of these egg supplying farms and the child would be appalled. Kids know immediately that no one should have so many chickens piled into a small wire cage all in the name of the almighty buck. It must be that most all of these so-called chicken farmers don’t give a crap about the well being of the birds. They are too interested in grubbing up all of the eggs that they produce, as fast as they can!

It’s sad, like a cow that gives us milk, a chicken requires little and they give a lot in return. You’re getting something from them, so why not give something besides the absolute basics of a little feed and water? Many would rather sit on their eggs and hatch peeps, but they don’t have a say in that, so, at the very least, give them some fresh air and room to turn around and spread their wings. Imagine sitting in a box where you have a little head room, but your arms are at your side constantly 24/7, where you are so crammed in that you cannot turn around, and you can’t move your arms. Can you imagine how stiffened up you’d get? But what, is it acceptable just because we’re talking about chickens, just because people like eggs, the chickens can be treated as poorly as one wants? Hats off to Brad Pitt for trying to make a change. We need more people like him, celebrities that use their fame for a greater cause, who aren’t afraid to go up against big business, or any business!

Walter James Palmer: Defining Cowardice

Walter James Palmer, the “dentist” from Minnesota, is someone I’m sure you’ve heard the name of – if not, perhaps you can look in the dictionary under COWARD! It’s vermin like Walter that give all Americans a bad name. He’s a real tough guy, a hunter that loves to prove to everyone he can kill beloved, harmless, beautiful animals, whether endangered or not. This man is said to be the father of two, and I wonder how he would feel if some self-proclaimed tough guy hunted him down, and his children, too. What kind of psycho, with his extremely overblown sense of self-worth, pays to go out and kill an older animal that loved human contact, one who had survived all kinds of threats and encounters in his own environment, only to have a piece of shit – with a bow and arrow, nonetheless – lure him out and wound him, then leave him there to suffer for two entire days? Yeah, sure, by anyone’s standards that takes a real tough guy. More like an avid butcher who senselessly slaughters helpless animals. Now, it would have made Walter really something to brag about if he had gone on his so called conquest fairly, but let’s see the ball-less jerk go one-on-one with the regal Cecil and fight fair. Let’s see him use the same weapons that were available to that helpless lion!

Again I have to ask, what in God’s name would possess the most moronic, low-life that exists on this planet to go out and kill not only helpless animals unable to defend themselves, animals loved by so many, but also critically endangered animals as well? Society thinks that we only have poachers to worry about, when there are total, good for nothing, useless, simpletons like Walter Palmer. I guarantee you that, next thing you know, Walter Palmer will be claiming not to know that Cecil was so loved by so many, a typical excuse used by a senseless killer! I truly hope that the African officials do not let this butcher get away with this, or that excuses like permits, permission, ignorance, or any other lame nonsense, do not cause anyone to go easy on this so-called “man.”

Palmer, to sate his blood thirst, travels across the globe, where his money is so desperately needed that he figures he can, literally, get away with murder! Is it because we have more stringent laws in the United States, or is it because we have no exotic or endangered animals here, that this is where this behavior would not go unpunished? Where there would be such an uproar that people would probably be picketing in his front yard, all gathered to protest just outside of his home? Though, I hope that happens anyway. Low-lives like Walter don’t give the slightest damn whether an animal may be the very last of its kind. All he sees is a prize that he actually believes gains him bragging rights, because we all know that it takes one-of-a-kind skill to have a weapon that an animal doesn’t and take its life, and some real skill to leave an animal suffering. True skill it is when an animal loves human company, too! What’s worse still, or just as shameful, is that he’ll raise another generation to believe that his disgusting, cowardice, vile behavior is perfectly acceptable. This butchering dentist needs to be made an example of in the most severe ways.

I’ve heard it said that Walter James Palmer’s actions are probably his way of trying to compensate for his physical “shortcomings”, but I personally think that his problem is deep rooted, far more deviant in nature. Like the Devil himself, some wannabe tough guys like the feeling of control, and the more helpless their victims, the better. Imagine a lion, one known and loved by so many people, one that didn’t mind human company and at times sought people out, a regal, courageous lion like Cecil, trusting the humans around him that he’d become so accustom to in his twelve years of life, being lured out into the open, but thinking that he had nothing to fear from one of the humans that he’d come to trust. He must have thought none would do him harm, never knowing that laying in wait was a two legged, piece of trash predator who would put an arrow in him and then let him suffer with a mortal wound for an entire day! I’m only sorry that the premise for the new show ZOO weren’t true, that all of the animals left couldn’t band together and turn the tables on garbage like the cowardly Walter James Palmer.

I’m sure that Mr. Palmer will attempt to blow some smoke up our rear ends and feign remorse for his disgusting, murderous, senseless, slaughtering of Cecil, the sweet old lion who was part of a long-term study, and perhaps in his small mind it will convince others that he is sorry, but I’m going to have to call bull crap on that one! You see, money can buy almost anything I guess, and wealth can buy you a chance to murder Simba, but what wealth cannot buy you is respect, and it can’t make everyone else forget, or think that vile actions are acceptable! This reminds me of the other wussy “hunters” who, like W.J.P., think that they are skilled snipers and go into a small, caged area and kill lions, tigers, etc. We will all be impressed when there comes a hunt where the hunters sign off on themselves first so that no one else can be sued if they get killed, and then they are part of a fair hunt, one where all sides are even, where the two legged participants go into it with only what God gave them, as do the animals. Let these hunting tough guys (and gals) learn what a fair hunt/fight is, if they come out of it alive, and then – and only then – do they have something to brag about. W.J.Palmer and others like him remind me of the wussies that go into a fight but can only engage in it when they have four, five, or an even larger number of others to back them up in a fight with just one other person, because by themselves (like when hunting a defenseless animal) they are inferior and, though I don’t like to use the blatant word for it, are nothing more than wussies!

Laundry Detergent Test

I have always been a fan of TIDE laundry detergent but face it, it’s become so ridiculously high priced, who the heck can afford to buy it, especially when you do laundry frequently. I began to test different detergents on my own, I know that there are different things that factor in when doing a “test” like this, so I took two packs of plain white, cotton tee-shirts, each pack had five shirts. Since my test subject wears them everyday, I used those as the “test clothing”, any that might have ended up with a stain that wasn’t of the norm, I would exclude, I tested from just everyday wear (deodorant stains or pit stains, etc.).

I tried what was left of my TIDE on one and as I knew it would, it cleaned well enough, I can’t really say as far as smell because I use fabric softener. I tested ERA, it didn’t clean as well and man, it made us itch really bad, it did clean the shirt up but not as good as the TIDE did, not even close. My next test was using the regular ALL (dark blue bottle), it cleaned better than the ERA but still not as good as the tide did, perhaps it’s because I have sensitive skin, but that made me itch as well. Next up was GAIN, the smell was great, not that it matters when using fabric softener, but still it was a nice bonus, it didn’t make us itch and it cleaned just as well as the TIDE did, better yet, the price was much less than the TIDE. The next time that I was in Sam’s Club I noticed that they had their detergent and fabric softener on sale, for the price I could not resist so I bought both of them to try out. Member’s Mark ( Sam’s Club brand) Ultimate Clean liquid laundry detergent. I was floored after washing the clothes in it and seeing the tee-shirt, I actually washed another one to see if I could have been mistaken, I wasn’t. The Sam’s detergent was not only as good as the TIDE, it cleaned better! It didn’t cause any skin irritations or itching, it didn’t smell as nice as gain but the smell was okay too. The last test I conducted was using ALL Free & Clear with stain lifters, I didn’t expect it to be any different than the regular ALL detergent, I was wrong though. This ALL was the second best of them all, following the Sam’s Club detergent.

The money that you could save on laundry detergent is just hard to believe, it’s also hard to believe that any company could charge as much as they do for things like detergent. Try the Sam’s Club one on your clothes and you’ll be surprised, I got the huge bottle with the pump so it went a long way but when I went back to get more, the price had gone up, still nowhere in the ballpark as the others. It’s worth every penny for clean, decent smelling clothes that don’t make you itch or irritate your skin!

Words, Opinions and Freedom of Speech

One of the most precious gifts that we ever had in this country was freedom of speech, the United States, being the melting pot of nationalities of the globe, allowed any person of any race, to say what they felt without fear of punishment, or criticism from anyone else. It’s a travesty that there really is no such thing of freedom of speech anymore, when good people have an opinion that differs from some others, they are slammed and crucified, they loose their jobs and are basically ruined!

Look at Jamie Foxx, he made a joke about Bruce Jenner ( he is after all a comedienne ), and all hell breaks loose, one cant help but wonder if the one that led the witch hunt to begin with, was transgender, or had someone close to them that was. Giuliana Rancic made a joke about Zandaya and her poor choice of hair styles, as expected, another witch hunt began, Giuliana was made out to be a big, bad, racial slurring wolf and she was put through the wringer. Another great example is Paula Deen, she admitted that she used a word that wasn’t socially acceptable and the fallout was vicious, the woman lost endorsements, lost support, lost millions of dollars, I wonder who was the first to lead that witch hunt?

Donald Sterling, basketballs Clippers owner was banned for life by the NBA and fined 2.5 million dollars over racial remarks he’d made, the real clincher was that he was being secretly recorded by a woman with a very clear agenda. It seems that the old rule of sticks and stones breaking bones and names never hurting someone is a joke as well, if he had taken a baseball bat to one of the players, as bizarre as it is, it probably wouldn’t have been nearly as bad for him as this situation was. Try to imagine for one minute that everything you say behind closed doors, is secretly recorded and made public, every last one of us would be crucified, but because he was in the public eye, it went even worse for him. What about the catalyst, the woman who recorded him without him knowing about it?

The fact remains that there are people out there who, be if for deeply religious beliefs or for moral reasons, do not support homosexuality or transgender issues, people who let them live their lives but don’t feel that such issues should be so publicized or promoted. There are also people who do use improper choices of words for others, that offend, and like it or not, they are entitled to their opinions. What is more important at the core, someone being called a name that they don’t like and setting out to ruin the person that said it, or our supposed right to freedom of speech? There will always be people who say things that others don’t agree with, always be name callers, but I truly hope that the witch hunts will stop, that those same people always sitting around day in and day out, just looking to stir the pot, will find something more constructive to do with their time.

It’s damned tiring to turn on the tv, or read the paper every day and see another story about someone in the public eye being ruined for what they said. Society needs to understand that you can’t force everyone to view things the way that you want them to, people are entitled to their own opinions and feelings, no matter what the topic! There are a lot of people out there that need to stop trying to shove their own agendas down everyone else’s throats, being mature enough to know that words are just that, words and that everyone can’t agree on everything, is a precious, rare thing.

Fatal Automobile Accident, Bruce Jenner Involved

On February 7th of this year, Bruce Jenner was involved in an automobile accident, an accident in which a woman, Kim Howe lost her life. TMZ reported that not surprisingly, the Kardashian family claimed that Bruce was being chased by paparazzi, it has been determined that the claim was false. Different media outlets have reported different information pertaining to the details of the accident, one such report said that Kim, the woman killed, had been driving when her license had been suspended, even if that were the case, the woman lost her life and someone is to blame.

Let’s see how this one pans out, let’s see how the investigation concludes, it would be a travesty if, as we’ve seen all too many times before, someone in the public eye get’s a mere slap on the wrist. Whether Bruce was solely to blame or not, he should be treated as you or I would be if we were in the same situation, it speaks volumes right off the bat that the family released a false claim in saying that he was being hounded by paparazzi. It’s a hell of a note that any time a celebrity does something wrong, or is involved in anything shady where questions of blame arise, the paparazzi is always to blame, very convenient.

Maybe Bruce Jenner is so wrapped up in his new found fame, relishing the attention that’s being showered on him alone, with this “transition” stuff and reports of getting his own show, that he believes himself to be untouchable. I sincerely hope that law enforcement is ruthless in their pursuit of the party to blame for this womans death. I know from personal experience that in my area, if you know a cop on scene or if the party to blame has any kind of influence, no matter how small, they can get away with anything. I hope that in California it isn’t the same, I think that rather than allow any kind of celebrity to get away with anything, they should be made an example of.

Let’s just see what the outcome of this accident investigation is, let’s just see if Bruce Jenner is held accountable for anything I think that it will be unusual and shocking if he get’s any punishment for anything. Pictures don’t lie, witnesses don’t lie, the facts speak for themselves and I hope that, whether the accident victim had a current license or not, that the party at fault is punished fully, the woman did not deserve to die and, license or not, she was on her way and someone caused the mess that took her life. TMZ reports that Jenner told police that he lost control of his vehicle and rammed Howe’s car, sounds to me like the statement Bruce made was an admission of guilt, for him being at fault, whether or not charges will be brought against him or punishment will be doled out his way, remains to be seen.

N.Y. Fashion Week: Kim’s Circus Act

You don’t have to be into fashion at all  to be familiar with New York Fashion Week. All of the A-listers, wealthier folks that are into fashion, and, of course, the industry elites are in attendance. Everyone’s dream is for a front row seat, everyone wants to look their best, and it goes without saying that everyone behaves accordingly. There are some out there that would give anything to be part of NY Fashion Week, as it would be any models dream, and any would-be designer could only imagine his or her outfits walking the runway. To even be able to go just to see the fashion is made a big deal of! Bottom line is, New York Fashion Week really is a big deal to the wealthy, and to celebrities and models, and although it may not be at Buckingham Palace, there is a certain unspoken protocol as far as behavior goes. Most normal people don’t need to be told that there are acceptable and unacceptable behaviors at such an affair – I suppose you can take the girl out of the slums, but you can’t take the slums out of the girl!

Remember the fallout after Kim Kardashian forgot her kid somewhere? Was it at a hotel when she went and began to get into (or got into) a car and then had to run back in for her kid after a bystander inquired, which she denied of course? Sadly for others at New York Fashion Week, Kim remembered that she had a kid and actually brought it along with her to attend! Through the years we have all scratched our heads and questioned what is wrong with the Kardashian family, but the nonsense that we have seen with Kim is exceptional; she’ll never be the mother that her sister is, should she ever try to care about such things. What’s worse than bringing a small child to such a high-end, glamorous event? When the kid flips out and has a tantrum, showing what a spoiled brat it is in public – a normal parent would be mortified and never allow such behavior anywhere, especially at an event like that one where others attended to see and hear the show.

In Touch Weekly reports that Kim Kardashian was the laughingstock of NY Fashion Week thanks to the get-up she wore, and after seeing the pictures I understood why. These things are among the many reasons why, as hard as she has supposedly tried, as desperately as she might wish, Kim Kardashian will never be a legitimate celebrity who is famous for any real reason. Between the many procedures she’s had done, the ridiculous outfits she steps out in, her ever-inflating arse, her ludicrous, crass, never-ending selfies, the inappropriate clothing she puts on her kid and the places she allows the kid to go, along with its bad behavior, she’ll always remain Kim K. the one and only famous for being famous from a homemade sex tape! Kim is her own biggest fan who absolutely adores, spoils, pampers, and admires (but never respects) herself!

I wonder what poor Beyonce was thinking, sitting there next to Kim with the kid carrying on screaming, and while her clueless mother sat there allowing it to be inflicted onto everyone else before she finally got a clue and took the kid outside. Funny that Kim thought that she could ever even so much as compete with Beyonce in any way, shape, or form when, in reality, Kim wouldn’t even be able to shine Beyonce’s shoes. You’d never see Beyonce bring her daughter to that event, or any other that wasn’t geared toward children. Beyonce’s daughter isn’t seen in inappropriate, laughable outfits, either, and you would also never see her wearing such ridiculous get-ups that made people compare her to a whale or a sofa. Beyonce also has true beauty; she doesn’t need to have endless procedures done because she doesn’t need them. Plus, she also has self-confidence, and doesn’t need to take constant selfies to admire whatever work she’s had done. You never see her daughter being a rotten brat making scenes in the public eye. Once a magazine reported that Kim had the audacity to say that there was something that she had over on Bey – she said that her kid was more attractive than Bey’s, and I read many comments online that said it all. I don’t want to pick on children, no matter how ill mannered they are, but I will say that Kim likes to “see” things the way that she wants them to be and not the way they necessarily are.

NBC News Without Brian Williams

What is it they say, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones? Name three celebrities you know of, that have never lied………. how about three, or even one politician that is honest enough never to have lied. Okay fine, who do you know personally that has never in their life lied? Have you ever lied, or have you embellished the facts of a certain situation, maybe you were less than honest when asked about your income, job title, weight or age? A lie is a lie and as sad as it is, everyone has, does or will lie throughout their lifetime, sometimes it’s unavoidable, sometimes it’s to save your behind or someone else’s, sometimes it’s to prevent hurting someones feelings, regardless, no one is in a position to throw any stones.

Thousands of stones have been thrown at Brian Williams, yes maybe he did lie and embellish details pertaining to his reporting from Iraq in 2003, he admitted that he did so, he apologized. Think about it, the President of the United States of America lies all the time and we’re talking serious lies, after all, his supposedly winning the election was based upon nothing but lies! Politicians lie, so do celebrities, teachers, priests, attorneys, judges, policemen, radio/tv hosts, you name it and they lie, the real question is, what it all boils down to, whether or not they get caught and that’s the truth!

Every single day, there are those people out there that just look for something to start trouble over, desperately looking for a cause, too bad for Brian Williams that he was exactly that, for person A, the initial couch warrior. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not going to stop watching Brian reporting any news, however, I can promise you this, I will not be watching NBC nightly news any longer without him in the anchor seat, pity for too many of us though because I’ve been watching him every night for too many years to count. Does this ridiculous spectacle that’s been created over Brian Williams slip of the tongue, make me question the integrity of the news, the network or the reporter? Absolutely not, and no one else should question these things either. The nydailynews.com reports that the NBC probe into Williams is continuing and expanded, with a review of his expense accounts, hm and we all believed that the witch hunts were a thing of the past, sounds to me like that’s exactly whats happening here.

The announcement made via Deborah Turness, President of NBC news, that addressed Brian Williams being suspended immediately, without pay. It states that Brian misrepresented facts while covering the Iraq war in 2003, and that it became clear that he had done the same thing while telling the story in other venues, on other occasions. It also states that they have other concerns about comments that were made outside NBC News while Brian was talking about his experiences in the field. All of the years that this man has reported the news to us, all of the good, respectable, stories he has been part of, all of this seems so quickly forgotten by those that have benefited from the fact that so many Americans love him. Whether they like it or not, Brian Williams is NBC news, the reporter reporting the news matters, it’s a fact and if you don’t like the reporter, you aren’t going to watch that nightly news, you’re going to change the channel.

Perhaps Deborah Turness wants us to believe that she has never been wrong when she’s recounting any events that have happened, involving her, maybe she’s perfect and some kind of super saint who has never lied, embellished, exaggerated, been wrong or made a mistake. Perhaps someday the network will probe into every detail of her day to day activities, while she’s enjoyed her job title and any power she may wield, I doubt that she’s in any position to throw stones, but hell that didn’t seem to stop her when it came to boulders! I think that the network made a grave mistake in suspending Brian Williams and in it blatantly seeming like they are leading a witch hunt, all too willing to burn his reputation at the stake! I for one will not be watching the NBC nightly news again, at this point the competition is no longer competition, and for that matter, Lester Holt will never have the viewers that Brian has, it’s not his fault that he can’t grow on anyone, they either have it or they don’t, Brian is one of the few that has it and kept millions tuning in to NBC nightly news. Ever suspending him at all is ludicrous, but to do so without pay is revolting, to imply that any of the things that Brian has done will affect the news legitimacy is assinine, I would sooner wonder whether or not people might think that someone had a personal issue with Brian and began all of this nonsense in an attempt to ruin him. The other networks would do well to grab Brian now while he’s available, he’s not to be avoided because of this man made scandal, it’d be genius to hire him on and watch the ratings grow. The only ones who’ll have a problem with it are the couch warriors that started the whole mess while searching for a cause, and the morons who let him get away so the other networks would gain ratings gold!
