Tucson Shooting, Is It Our Problem?- By Sandra G.

By Guest Blogger: SANDRA GLUSCHANKOFF — Argentinian (read bio)

Like so many of you, I’m still searching for logical answers to the deadly shooting that took place in Tucson on Saturday January 8th. Fourteen injured. Six dead.

Stunned by the shocking developments I couldn’t stop but racking my brain once more about another widely ignored problem in our society. What could drive a twenty two year old boy, who only a few months ago was committed to a college education, to unleash such a devastating shooting rampage?

Unlike what the international community might think and many cynics in this country too, I don’t believe the latter tragic mass murder has a thing to do with the so called tension in our charged political atmosphere. Nor it has to do with Sarah Palin’s love for guns or with the Tea Party’s heated opposition to our current administration. If we choose to allege the Tucson massacre to these factors, we are literally dodging the bullet, feeling lucky we were not the ones bleeding to death this time around.

Then with a quick shrug of the shoulders and the notorious “not my problem” line, we move on to see what the Kardashians are up to, fervently deeming their lives to be our problem.

Authorities claim, Jared Loughner, the shooter, took on the Fifth Amendment and has not said a word since he was tackled down and restrained by three courageous citizens, while he was attempting to reload his gun.

This twenty two year old crazy has been leaving a trail of troublesome hints for (more…)

MEDIA JERKS – LEVI JOHNSTON

LEVI JOHNSTON

He’s got an overly whitened smile, and pumped pectorals that are sure to become ‘man boobs’ in a few years time; but he’s also got the pin up good looks of a teen idol that make him endearing to some.

To us, however, Levi Johnston is a babyish media jerk who, like his former “mother-in-law-in-waiting,” Sarah Palin, just can’t seem to go away. So, while he may be new to politics and entertainment, he has become a jerk in his own right.

In a desperate bid to extend his 15 minutes of fame and remain in the spotlight, Levi seems to latch onto any and every little opportunity to be the day’s media sound byte. Maybe the Palin “publicity-hungry gene” can be inherited just by association. Hmmm. Levi certainly has all the characteristics of Palinitis. Yes, that condition is as bad as it sounds!

Hey, he’s even getting involved in the family business – running for public office, eyeing the mayor’s chair in Wasilla. Not bad, huh, for a high school dropout, whose pregnant teenage girlfriend just happened to be the daughter of the Governor of Alaska, no less. Wonder what the laws up there say about sex with a minor. But that’s not our issue.

Truth is, we feel for Levi. He seems to be a nice, if not misguided young man whom comedienne, Kathy Griffin, described as (more…)

My Brief Affair with George W. Bush & My Political Observations – By S. Lord

My sister, Allison, cringes everytime I publicly admit to having voted for G.W. Bush. Although I am quick to add that it was ONLY the second term (I voted for Gore first time around), it is something, which for obvious reasons, I am still not proud.

While my Republican friends embraced me like “E.T., the prodigal daughter,” who had at last ‘come home,’ my Democrat friends were aghast. After all, in their eyes, that was inconsistent with the person whom they knew – one who subscribed to the belief that government should play some role in alleviating poverty and social injustice, one who had herself created and supported community outreach programs for the less fortunate.

The thing is, as someone who comes from a different political system; who had no preconceived ideas about American politics; who got to take a good impartial look at the two major parties in this country, I must say I don’t consider myself (more…)

It all Started with the Rib – By Sandra Gluschankoff

By Guest Blogger: SANDRA GLUSCHANKOFF – Argentinian

Driving home from work, I fantasized about the moment I would take off my shoes, fill up a glass of my favorite Malbec from my native Argentina (my newly acquired taste), and finally relax after a long day.

Anxiously, I slid the key into my front door, pushed it open, and before I could announce myself to my kids with my usual greeting, “Mami is home”, I tripped onto my younger son’s shoes that were lying right by the entrance.

In a second the spell was broken as my new pantyhose ripped when I landed knees first onto the floor.

I looked around, dazed and pissed, and reality hit me. My workday was (more…)

Media Jerks – Sarah Palin

SARAH PALIN

How has Sarah Palin managed to seduce so many people into thinking she could conceivably be the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World?

There are a few things in her favor: her feistiness – she gives as good as she gets; her sense of humor – she knows how to laugh at herself and minimize the effect of a multitude of humiliating faux pas; her marketing skills – she has perfected the art of playing the media like a hooker practiced in the art of seduction and has them eating out of her hand; her brazenness – she has a unique ability to look you squarely in the face, with unwavering eyes and that beaming, shameless smile while she gives uninformed, meaningless, answers to pointed questions; oh, yeah, and she’s sexier than McCain, Newt, Giuliani or any of the Republicans to boot!

But none of these things is presidential. (more…)

American Way, American Dream in Danger

By Guest Blogger: Dr. MELODY JACKSON – American

Let me start by saying that this foray into a public expression of my not-so-P.C. ideas and ideals is different for me.  I was hesitant to write this blog because I very much dislike arguing, and I don’t care what most people think anyway, so why bother?  However, when someone starts talking trash about America or messing with my rights and my money, then I do get a bit riled up.

As I listened to the rhetoric of this year’s State Of The Union address filled with great ideas and catch phrases that could very appropriately be painted on a bouquet of Mylar helium balloons at a Tony Robbins seminar, I figured it was a good time for me to exercise my First Amendment right in this public venue.
