The price of justice.....

So the day after Dr. Murray's sentencing to four years in prison for the death of Michael Jackson, I have to wonder. What really is the price of "Justice"? There are thousands of people in jails all over the country who have been waiting for court dates for months or years. Some guilty, some innocent. Does it seem that people who do wrong or are accused of doing wrong to someone with a butt load of cash, get to court a lot quicker than others who don't have the high profile or bank account of the Jacksons?
Isn't the legal/justice system supposed to treat all equally and fairly? Why does Clayfaces' errrr Michael Jackson's doctor get a trial, sentenced, and put away in about 1/10 of the time it takes for anyone else? Taxpayers are keeping people in jails for years without a fair trial. You'll get your "Due process" as soon as the check clears.

Weird survey. What do you do when you get on an elevator?

I live in a large apartment building and I ride the elevator at least twice a day. My office building also has an elevator and I ride that one even more. One thing that always gets me is how people react to being in an elevator. You have the people who get in and go as far to the back as possible or stand right in front of the door with their nose so close it could get caught. Then you have the people who either stare straight at the floor, the ones who stare straight at the floor change lights, or the small talk people who try to have a little banter in the closed in space to alleviate any uncomfortable moments. I realized that when I get in the elevator I tend to go to the back corner and put my head down and look at the floor unless there are others in the elevator then I try to speak and be cordial. I'm curious about others and how the act and what they do while riding the elevator. Leave a comment about how you act and what you do but please, no dirty stuff okay.

Stop the Kardashians

Man am I mad. Someone else had the forethought to start a petition to get the Kardashians off of TV. If there was one thing that would make me happy, aside from a billion dollars, a house in the Maldives, and a weiner dog farm, this would be it. I'm so sick of seeing the bloated ego freaks everywhere anymore. It's pathetic that people even allow their families to watch their show(s). These people are about as appealing as the losers from the Jersey Shore. Follow this link and sign the petition. Make sure you log in at a less busy time. Supposedly the servers are so overwhelmed with people trying to sign, they are crashing. People, remember. Take it nice and slow in an orderly fashion. Sign the petition then log off. Let all sane humans have a chance to help get rid of the most annoying family since the Mansons.

Kim Kardashians divorce, and why they all suck

I don't know about any of you guys, but the whole Kim Kardashian divorce really threw me. Those two kids seemed so much in love, I thought it would last forever. The fairy tale $10 million dollar wedding, the $2 million dollar ring, the month long photo op, I mean the honeymoon. Gee 72 days, that may be an eternity in Hollywood to some. Really? 72 days? I've had gas that's lasted longer. (Maybe not something I should share)
I think the people of the United States and just about everywhere else for that matter are so bored and miserable with their own lives that they have to follow the bored and miserable lives of worthless non-celebrities likes the Kardashians. A family whose only real claims to fame are the step dad who was a super athlete back in 50's or something, a girl with a giant rear end who made a sex tape with another nobody, and a real father who's lifes work was getting a jury to let one of the countries most notorious murderer's go free.
So here we are so many years later, falling victim to the worst idea in the history of mankind, reality television. This just proves that people are so weak minded and lazy that the only ideas they can come up with are watching the rich and famous get more rich and more famous for doing absolutely nothing for humanity. So Kim is giving back $200 k to charity. Big whoop dee doo. People are making this family so rich and entitled by watching their TV shows, buying their perfumes and whatever else they are whoring themselves out to, and others who are sitting back and watching are paying a cable company to pipe this trash into your home.
Here is your 1% people. Occupy Hollywood and stop the Kardashian juggernaut. Boycott their shows, don't buy any magazines with their faces on them, stop buying their hawked products.
Ignore them now!! Don't be followers. End the madness!!

Amy Winehouse dies from alcohol poisoning...shocker

So the final coroner report came out and stated that Grammy Award winner Amy Winehouse died from acute alcohol poisoning. Hmmmm, I think something fishy is going on here. She died July 23rd and it took the coroner over 3 months to determine that? The guys who live under the rocks on the Geico commercials could have figured that out way sooner. The report shows the police found 3 empty vodka bottles in her apartment. You'd think they would test for that first wouldn't you?
The same report as shown on has a comment from Andrew Morris, Winehouse's (Ahem) body guard, who says she didn't "drink to get drunk". Really? Why did she drink, to solve the world hunger issue? The woman was a known drug abuser/alcoholic who has had several run ins with the law over the years for issues related to her being wasted. I'm sure most people don't drink to get drunk, it just kind of happens when you polish off a gallon of booze.
It's a shame that people continue to do stupid things and die from it and that the families of these people have to continue to live with it.

HPV vaccine for preteens

So some people are calling for preteen boys to get vaccinated for the HPV virus. This will bring in millions (billions) of dollars to the drug manufacturers who will be developing this vaccine and distributing it to doctors offices and hospitals worldwide. It just goes to show you that medical wonders never cease. I'm sure they are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts and not for the money.
How about trying this instead. Parents, teach your kids to either abstain or practice safe sex, and encourage them to wait until they are old enough to understand the ramifications of engaging in intercourse. There are so many young kids who are already making more young kids already. Make it stop!! If parents were still taking the lead in homes across the country and across the world, this issue wouldn't be such a problem. Pushing an STD drug on young kids will just give them more reason to want to start having sex without suffering any consequences it can bring. Unwanted pregnancy, welfare, higher insurance rates, abortions, let alone STD's.
Parents, it's time you did YOUR jobs instead of everyone else doing it for you!!
Train your kids before it's too late.

Sharks bite? What?!?

So over the past couple weeks some unfortunate swimmers have been either bitten and or killed by sharks off the coast of Australia.....really? Who didn't see that coming? You are spearfishing off the coast of the Great White Shark capital of the world, and the families are pissed off because a shark killed someone. I got bad news for you people. You are in their home, swimming in their backyard, so to speak, with a dying fish, bleeding and writhing about on a spear. What did you think was going to happen? The shark swims over, takes a look and goes "Holy crap it's a human. I can't bite HIM!! That's just wrong" Idiots!! If you don't want to get bitten by a shark, don't go in the water!! Mankind doesn't own EVERYTHING, so you aren't entitled to everything.
You can swim but know this, if you go in the water, you run a risk of being bitten and either getting seriously hurt or dying. Deal with it. Now the Australian government is giving permission to people to go hunt for the shark that killed these people. Lame!! It's turning into the movie Jaws. There will be hundreds of morons trying to find one shark in an ocean of thousands of other sharks, animals who are running the risk of endangerment more and more every year. Leave the sharks alone or face the consequences!
Face facts. Sharks own the oceans, not you!!

Wild Animals on the loose in Ohio

The ones I feel sorry for the most here are the animals. They were probably kept illegally, treated poorly, and were scared out of their minds. It's too bad the owner shot himself, now he can't be charged with endangerment, the weapons charge he was accused of and I'm sure a whole slew of other things he could be put away for. This idiot had endangered species of animals living in cages and the police had to kill them. What a waste. The animals didn't do anything wrong but they are the ones who got punished. I grew up about 45 miles from Zanesville, OH. It's a really nice old town with a lot of history. Now the only thing it will be known for is the loser redneck piece of garbage who got a bunch of innocent animals killed.
Way to go douche rocket. I hope some wild animals get to feed on your carcass.

Dancing with the Stars


So my wife and I are both really big fans of Dancing with the Stars, even though the use of the word "Star" is up for some serious debate. The issues I/We have developed over the years, however are making it hard to keep watching the show. First of all as I mentioned at the top is the term "Stars". Sure there have been some fairly recognizable names on the show over the years. Most notably, Donny and Marie Osmond, Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice, and a few others. If you look at the overall numbers though, a majority of these people are only famous for being "D" listers, semi-famous sports stars, Disney channel kids, or worse someone named Kardashian or The Situation.
The second issue is the way the show has turned into a popularity contest and not a dancing competition. Going back to Sabrina and Mark which I think were in Season 4 or 5, can't honestly remember. She was by far the best dancer on the show and was voted out after 3 weeks maybe? This pattern has continued the rest of the seasons down to now which leads me to this next little irritation. Why is Chaz Bono and Carson Kressly still on the show? In all honesty, they are horrible!!! The gay and lesbian community have pretty much locked up these two as future finalists with the way the home voting has been going. They sent home Kristin Cavalleri and Chynna Phillips, both were in the top tiers of scoring through the first four weeks of the show with Chaz and Carson scraping up the bottom of the barrel.
The show needs to change the voting procedures and take the upsets out of the hands of the home viewers and let the judges have the final say. The 3 judges should have a final tally of 51% of the voting. Granted, they are a bit biased at times but they are professionals and know what they are doing. No way should Bono or Kressly still be on the show. Stop stuffing the ballot boxes, and let the show get back to what it should be, a dancing competition.
I don't want a bunch of whining and complaining from anyone about this either. I'm not gay bashing anyone. I'm simply pointing out the obvious.

Cell phones in restaurants

I am not a person who likes to complain....much. I guess one of my main gripes, are people who use cell phones in restaurants. I'm sure your Aunt Gertrude won't mind if you wait until dinner is over for you to call and ask how her gout is doing, right?
It's rude to use your cell phone in a restaurant for several reasons. One, your dinner companions may not want to hear your conversation with your wife, friends, or business clients while you are supposed to be visiting and/or working with them. Two, the other restaurant patrons who are within ear shot of your boring, loud, or otherwise intrusive conversation while THEY are trying to enjoy dinner with family or friends. Three, the servers, who while their job is to serve you food and drinks while you relax and enjoy, don't like coming back to tables constantly to attempt to take orders. You are wasting their time when they could be serving other customers, making them happy and receiving better tips. However, since you are a rude and obnoxious bore, making everyone around you listen to your call, delaying their otherwise good service because the server has to keep coming back to see if you are finished with your phone call so you can place an order, you ruin the experience of a nice meal.
All restaurants and dining establishments should ban all cell phone use by customers while inside the building. Make them go outside during any "important" calls that need to be made, and direct servers to not even go near a table if any of these guidelines are not followed.
What did people do before the invention of cell phones? Run to the pay phone as soon as they got inside the restaurant to call someone and then stay on the phone for 20 minutes, talking over everyone? No, they waited til they got home, picked up the phone and talked as long as they needed to.
In short, keep cell phones in your pockets or purse, on vibrate or even silenced while in eating establishments.
Don't disturb others with your inconsiderate behavior.

Are we in a Recession?

So I was listening to CNBC today and this guy comes on and says the US is not in a recession due to the fact that the current rate of job losses isn't on the rise. I find this hard to believe, in a way, and yet I can agree with him at the same time. Sure there hasn't been a rise in unemployment filings over the past several months. That's because everyone has already lost their job, and their unemployment benefits have run out and they are now resorting to criminal life.
With all the talk of creating new jobs, it sure seems like major companies in the US have totally hosed over everyone. Think of all the jobs that could be had here in the US if companies weren't outsourcing to other countries. People would probably kill for a customer service or call center job right now if it meant they could pay their bills and afford to eat meat for dinner again.

Why does the government keep bailing out banks?

So it seems every day now, the talk is either about the stock market here or the stock market in Europe or how the stock market in Europe affects the stock market here. There are billionaires investing money in banks that are teeterting and yet the banks are benefitting by near 0% interest rates against loans, but the banks keep raising the interest rates on consumer credit loans and cards. Why doesn't the government start dishing out some of that big money to the consumers? If consumers pay off their debts, they could then start to spend more of their hard earned money from whatever jobs they have left.
We keep hearing how you should start your own business and jump start the economy. The economy could be jump started if there wasn't so much money wasted on frivolous expenditures by the banks and major corporations. Tell me, what CEO of a major business deserves a 2 million dollar bonus every year? Some money should be invested into a new grant or something that could allow consumers a way to pay off bills and start over without going through bankruptcy or the like.
It's just frustrating that the rich DO keep getting richer and it's our money that is making them rich.

My new favorite place in Berea

So recently a new bar and grille opened up in Berea. It's called Bar 107. From the outside it looks like just another small bar and grille. You know the type, built in a small strip center, usual beers on tap like the awesome Coors Light and Budweiser, and normal bar food like burgers, wings, and fries. WRONG!! This place has a fantastic menu with new twists on old favorites. A nice beer and wine selection, and reasonably priced mixed drinks as well. My wife and I enjoyed this place so much, we went back less than a week later and our dinner and drinks were just as good if not better than the first time around. They have 1 or 2 person live acoustic shows on the weekends with a very good soundsystem that blasts out classic rock from the jukebox. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a place to go some evening. It's located at 107 Front Street in Berea, OH.
Have fun!!

Who are worse drivers....

So living in the Cleveland Ohio area can be a challenge if you drive a lot. Considering the city itself only has three sides, it just stands to reason that the highways would be packed all the time..and they are. This morning I got up at 5AM to go to work. There were a ton of people already on the road. Most of them driving like a bunch of idiots, like I need that first thing in the morning. What I can never figure out though, is who are worse drivers? Here are a few examples in no particular order.

1. Hillbillies/Rednecks
The year is 2011 and there are still plenty of people driving around with Southern flags flying in the back windows. What makes it worse is that they are weaving in and out of traffic on 4X4 frames and giant tires flicking cigarette butts out the windows. Looks like they are all going to meet up at the local truck pull.

2. People over the age of........Methuselah!!!
I'm all for people having rights, but people who are so old and shrunken that they can't see over the steering wheel scare the living %^@#& out of me. That and going about the speed of a glacier is enough to send you into cardiac arrest.

3. How do I say this....Women of color
I kid you not, one day while driving down the highway I got stuck behind a younger woman of a certain race, who was talking on her cell phone, putting on make up, and either singing or screaming, all while going about 50 miles per hour in the fast lane. I know a lot of women of any race who drive and put on make up at the same time, and that should be illegal in my mind. However, it seems that certain people do not understand the unwritten rules of the road while driving in the fast lane. If someone is behind you and they flash the bright lights at you, MOVE OVER!! Don't hog the road and flip them the bird like they are making you do something under protest or that will make you look weak. It's just a courtesy.

4. My mom
I love her to death, but dear lord, she is a bad driver. She can't remember where her false teeth are most of the time, why does she still have a drivers license?

New York Yankee fans are the worst........

So my father and I took in a baseball game a few days ago. My team was playing the New York Yankees, one of the most, if not THE most hated sports franchise in history. It's not so much that they have won so much as it is the obnoxiousness of their fans. Several Yankee fans sat behind us and constantly throughout the game yapped about the other team, the fans, the ballpark, the food, etc etc etc. The topper to this is that they have the most annoying accent ever. It's almost as bad as a Red Sox fan except without the attitude.
If a home team player didn't swing at a pitch, they started saying things like "Oh he's a lookuh" (looker i assumed). When my team got a hit thay started up with "Look at these loosahs, thay act like theya winnin"
what a bunch of stupids". Really, that's stupid to you? How about sounding like a bunch of wannabe Guidos from Jersey Shore? That's NOT stupid to you? I guess you couldn't handle it when the other team came back and beat you since we didn't hear another retarded word out of your mouths.
Yeah I guess we were "lookuh's". We were looking at our team send you morons home.
Hint: take voice lessons.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

So my wife and I went to see a movie. The new Michael Bay blockbuster, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. After reading so many negative reviews from the so-called professional reviewers, I HAD to see it. The movie was a bit long sure, but let's face it. Bay and Spielberg together can do no wrong. Plenty of action, awesome special effects, and most importantly, no Megan Fox. This is the best decision Michael Bay has ever made. The film wasn't marred by her painfully irritating scowl and crappy attitude. Sure, Rosie Huntington-Whitely isn't Meryl Streep or Dame Judy Dench. She isn't even Anne Hathaway, yet she still managed to be a better actress than Little Miss Snotty britches.
Another stellar performance by John Turturro by the way. Why this guy isn't in more movies is beyond my comprehension. He's just funny. His characters are always top notch with the right amount sarcasm and dry wit.
One point I will bring out is my disappointment with the amount of screen time Sam Witwicky's parents get. They delivered some of the best one liners in the previous two installments of the franchise. I guess all good things must come to an end eventually though, right?
Anyway, overall I really enjoyed the movie and I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
