Unless you deliberately try to avoid the news regarding people in the media, you have surely heard the tragic tale of actor Charlie Sheen and the downward spiral that he has been on with regards to his public displays of out of control, alleged drug use, partying, and seemingly non-sensical interviews that have Charlie Sheen appearing to bite the hand that feeds him. There have been news stories about porn stars, domestic violence, alleged drug use, drug rehab, custody issues, contract negotiations, not to mention, a forced hiatus from his television show and disgruntled co-workers.
That show, called Two and a Half Men, has stopped production on their show for the rest of the season; since Charlie has made a public statement on interviews that disparages the producers of the show, television show creator Chuck Lorre, Alcoholic Anonymous, his ex wife, and women in general. He says horribly vile things about Chuck Lorre and shows nothing but contempt for women, in my opinion, when he says things about women such as he has fame and those women have nothing and that all they will ever have is that night with him and that he will forget about them as soon as they leave. He says that he is “special” and will never be one of the AA because they are a “bootleg cult”. Seriously? Continue reading here: Write Where You Are

When are people going to wake up to the fact that we need to stop allowing instances of evil and violence to be glorified on television, movies, books and in our music? Isn’t it obvious that the world has been turning this garbage into “entertainment” and that it is having a terrible influence on our society? Today there was two distinctive situations that destroyed lives that is shockingly cruel in the fact that the victims of violence were totally innocent.
A nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina has 8 dead people , 7 residents and a nurse, because a young man came into the nursing home and started shooting at people. The reason is unclear at this point. It is alleged that his estranged wife works at this nursing home although that is not confirmed. An unprovoked attack on innocent people that would have been much worse had it not been for the heroic actions of a 25 year old police officer who was able to stop the shooter. While the news media covers these terrible bursts of violence…we must learn to carefully balance how these things are addressed in the media; so that they do not become gloried examples for those with similar thoughts.
Another equally upsetting situation; an ex-con attacks his sisters and kills two of them…one a five year old child on her birthday. He kills his 17 year old sister by brutally stabbing her…then, he goes after the five year old and decapitates her as the police come in. She is found near her birthday cake. The nine year old sister had called the officers…some how she was stabbed as well; she is in the hospital with injuries. Not only has she been injured, she lost members of her family and she has to live with the images of death and violence. This brother was clearly a person out of control; it was alleged that he had some kind of a run-in with a neighbor the evening before as well.
We have people who dont know how to resolve their personal problems…committing violence and killing innocent people. We have loners, and mentally ill people who do not get treatment. Our economy is so tight that those who desperately need mental health treatment do not get it because of cost. We need to seriously consider spending more money for preventative well-care programs for people at risk for such behaviors.
I would really like to see people stop supporting slasher/shoot them up shows and movies with their dollars. These type of entertainments only serve to encourage those who are bent on venting their anger and revenge or for those who are mentally unstable on taking out their rage on innocent people. How do you protect yourself and your loved ones from random violence? It is impossible. Is anyone else sick and tired of these things happening in schools, shopping malls, nursing homes and colleges, etc?

Donald Trump has resigned from the Trump Entertainment Resorts. He allegedly says that if he can’t manage something, then it isn’t for him. After he resigned from the board, the company filed a Chapter 11 bankruptsy protection proceeding…this is the third time that they have done that.
Mr. Trump had allegedly wanted to buy the company and take it private; but, it appears that the bond holders chose not to go that route. It must be frustrating to have a company that is known by your name, but, have very little control over their actual business decisions. (more…)

Well, ABC television is doing a slow tease. They have promised to announce who the new contestants will be on Dances With The Stars tonight. However, they are going to announce the contenders all throughout tonights programming of it prime time shows. Ugg…I understand building up a buzz for something to generate more of an interest…but geez…nothing like dragging it out. I personally dont like a show or two on their sunday night prime time and dont want to watch garbage to get the announcements. It is a little frustrating to me. What do you think about this method of revealing who will be dancing on this season? Well, we do know that Donny Osmond wont be one of them since he mispoke when he said he was going to be on it…but it will be in the Fall season.
Update on contestants for this season: Ty Murray- 7 time Rodeo Champ and real life husband of singer Jewel; who will also be a contestant. I wonder who their pro dancers will be? Comedic actor David Alan Grier; Steve Wozniak-businessman , co-founder of Apple computers; Chuck Wicks-country music singer and boyfriend of Julianne Hough (who said previously that she wouldn’t be on this season…so who knows?; Gilles Marini-actor; Steve O-stuntman famous for the show “Jackass”…not to crazy about this choice…seems a bit controversial and possibly not family oriented for this DWTS show; Lawrence Taylor-football hall of famer; Belinda Carlisle- singer of the famous 80’s girl band The Go-Gos; Denise Richards-actress and ex-wife of Charlie Sheen; Shawn Johnson- Olympic gymnist; Little Kim-female rapper; Nancy O’Dell- actress and host of “Access Hollywood”.

Ok, ready for some more, I can’t believe it…what were they thinking kind of blog post? It is better to give than to receive (as long as you are going to KEEP receiving bailout money). Outrageous news reports of an alledged 12 day trip to Vegas for the top employees for Wells Fargo & Company.
In the past years, this has been an alleged tradition of all expenses paid which included many different extravagant perks such as helicopter rides, private concerts, food and entertainment…etc. While companies are made to look good to their employees by giving away so much; to the rest of us…the companies who do this kind of thing are making a mockery out of the purpose of the bailout money for those companies who have been failing to be financially responsible.
How can these corporations, banks and such that have been receiving bailout money from taxpayers still be so blind? Can they not understand the depths of the resentment of the American people for this financial chaos that we have all been plunged into? Surely, if these behaviors continue…they will go out of business and deservedly so.
The thing is…today’s news of the 12 day planned trip was defended by the company…until there was an uproar and they cancelled the trip. If that is what it takes, to prevent further financial misuse of the bailout funds, negative peer pressure and pressure from the media, to change their behaviors; then, we are just going to have to be more vocal when we are made aware of an abuse of the American’s financial investment in their companies.
Let the other industry leaders be forewarned…American tax payers are fed up with the mess that has been made. I think those at the top of the companies that have received bailout money should be legally responsible for any misuse of those funds. Let’s see some accountability here by our leaders!
