If I had a dollar for every weiner scandal…


A hot dog.

If I had a dollar for every politician who stuck his wiener down the wrong hole, I could afford to run myself.

Before a man is a politician, he is a man. Although we as Americans think that politicians are going to be these saint like, money-saving, for the people individuals. In the end there only out for themselves.

We have to be realistic. We can’t keep going against the current that the tide is pushing. For whatever reason these people run for office knowing they have these secrets they don’t want anybody to know about, then they lie when it comes out, then they apologize when evidence is shown. Then they beg and in the end we forgive them. Sounds like a relationship to me.

So I’m not taking up for the man, but sometimes I think people do things just so they can be caught, cause other wise they would keep doing it even though they know it’s wrong. Some people have to be forced to stop and one of the people is Weiner.

I mean months ago there was a Twitter group warning people about Weiner’s wiener.

News: Ex-Boyfriend puts up Abortion Billboard.


In New Mexico a man bashes ex-girlfriend in her decision to have an abortion. Mr. Fultz, 35 years-old put up a billboard depicting him and a 2 month old baby. Words on the sign saying “”This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”

The ex-girlfriend wants the sign down. They have taken it all the way to court. She feels the sign invades her privacy. Mr. Fultz feels it his right to free speech.

In my opinion is he has missed the big picture. The situation shouldn’t have found its way on a billboard. Now if we look a bit deeper, this situation has little to do with the abortion and more to do with communication.

Why, I must ask, if the abortion is true did the woman feel she needed to do it? I have great views on abortion. But I think in this situation you can clearly see that lack of communication. How does the billboard make the situation better? The baby is no longer and now they are in court.

Please, in this day and age can we find some common sense. Is nothing private?

Just to be fair, I understand the hurt that one must have when a baby is lost, but we must look within in ourselves to find why a situation like this might happen. So now that the billboard is up does the man think it will bring the baby back. I think it displays his lack of maturity and maybe an underlined reason why the woman decided to have an abortion.

I don’t think he will be having any babies soon.

News: Man given ticket for paying hosiptal bill with 2,500 pennies


A man from Utah who disputed his $25 dollar medical bill paid with 2,500 in pennies. After inconveniencing staff with inappropriate handling of strewn coinage. The police was called and cited the man with a disorderly conduct ticket.
Personally I think this was a waste of police man power. I’m not saying the man conducted himself tactfully but if he had thrown a $20 and a $5, I think they would have just pick up the money and called it a day. If the Utah man was being disruptive then what happen to calling security and having him put out.
I don’t think we should be issued a ticket every time we have a bad day. I think he should have gotten a warning. And if he did it again then maybe a ticket would be needed to deter his behavior.
