Sarah Palin: “Wild Life” Runs in the Family

11 09 2008

Sara Palin, Bristol Palin aka gunhead, boozehead. So much for the so called “hockey mum” who is accusing the media for pointing out her family flaws. C’mon hottie, you are running for the highest in the land. Holding public office means subjecting yourself to scrutiny. You can’t just put a pretty face-on and expect Americans’ vote just like that. Actually, one has to be skeptic of pretty faces because 8 out of 10, they would have some form of skeletons in their closet.

To attest to such instance, the media have done some job exposing some of the plaques on Sarah Palin’ cheerleader appearance. A lady who prides herself as a mom; can her family exemplifies American family value? Hell no!! Not her with gun-loving record and alcohol drinking household (as she is shown, inset with some pot-smoking dude in the back ground). BTW, I never knew they wear bikini in frigid cold Alaska. And daughter, Bristol, display guns and gulping spirit like juice. Oh yeah! They can blame that on the weather too. In this age, there are many things teenagers can do in their time than having sex, messing with gun, or being a boozehead.

It is remains to be seen how the deeds of a “wild child” would affect the VP candidacy of a mother. It could be okay for an average citizen to party like animal with bottles of alcohol on both hand.s More also it is cool for ‘gun right’ advocates to  showoff  their arsenal for friends to see. But this type of indulgent could be a serious concern if it’s involved elected public figures.

There has been political rhetoric of “keeping the kids out” of political jabs. But who is to blame when a republican presumptive VP Sarah Palin can not control her teenagers – encouraging “unprotected Sex” to  pregnancy? The family we’ve seen since her nomination is as cosmetic as Sarah’s ‘lipstick’ – on a pig? Maybe. It wouldn’t be a surprise if there are more skeletons than what we have seen so far. I can only imagine how she can lead this nation with a ‘morally dysfunctional‘  family in the Whitehouse.

China Olympic Grammar Errors – Part 3

8 08 2008

China Welcomes Y’all for Coming!!. Today is 8/8/08. The long awaited Olympic just kicked off few minutes ago in China. But to our surprise, there are some serious issues that are still plaguing Chinese Olympic villages. Despite the fact that we have been sounding this warnings for months (see part 1 and part 2), it’s disappointing that COPO (Chinese Olympic Planning Organization) are not fully organized in their language skills.

Many public signs (examples below) erected are full of errors. Unfortunately, the world is in China now. Any attempt to remove these misleading signs now would bring more embarrassment. Since we don’t complain without giving solutions, we would suggest that English speaking visitors over there should help to correct or graffitize the errors, especially if you are from South Bronx like me.

Happy Olympic!

Nancy Pelosi’s Book: A Feminist Hypocrisy at Best

5 08 2008

So Nancy is on a tour book. It is unbelievable that the same lady who shot down Hillary Clinton’s Whitehouse run is promoting a book that entitled “Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters” ($23.95). I haven’t perused the book; needless to say I would not buy it because the content would appear hypocritical.

A lot have been said about “glass ceiling” for women. It is a common belief that it is still a men’s world out there. So, it is refreshing to see some women making it to the top of their career, especially in conventional men’s domain. Nevertheless, I think women are still their own worst enemies of progress. When some get to the top, they want to be the only conspicuous lady robbing shoulder with powerful men. That is the case of Nancy Pelosi, the first lady in U.S. history to be elected House Speaker.

Yeah! Nancy’s achievement is a big deal. And seeing any woman making similar history [for even more powerful position] could deflate her ego. She enjoys the respect and attention given to her as the lady-of-the-house. Had Hillary Clinton got the Democratic nomination, she too would have become [presumptive] most powerful lady in Washington/U.S., a title currently held by Pelosi. That is why Nancy supported Barack Obama for the nomination. So where is the so-called “feminist spirit”? With Obama in Whitehouse, it’s like a ‘strong lady and a wimp’ at the helm. Meaning Pelosi would be calling the shot for Democratic Party. With Iron-lady Hillary? Ah fogetaboutit! Pelosi wouldn’t stand a chance – as Hill takes bullshit from nobody.

With all the privilege and power, it is obvious Pelosi is having a blast in men-dominated world. So it is normal to act as a role model for other females to follow – but to share power with no other women. I can see another skilled politician (Nancy) at best. It is a known fact that most politicians don’t always mean what they say. Nancy Pelosi’s book-hawking parade is nothing but a “political marketing” and pretense. If she would have to be voted for again, so that some gullible voters would think: “Gee! She is lifting the bar for our daughters; let’s vote for her.”

My conclusive analogy would be Nancy Pelosi is just like some lady who sleeps with somebody else’s guy and turned around saying “all men are cheaters.” The fact of the matter is: men wouldn’t cheat on their lovers without the help of other women. Her book would say: girls, men are your problem; they are creating the glass-ceiling for you, they are limiting your career goals. You don’t have to let them.” Well, ladies you might find it very daunting to attain your ambition if you are in the same boat with ‘Nancy(s) Pelosi(s) of the world.’

Overprotective Dads Set Dating Rules For Daughters

25 07 2008

There are good reason for the words: “daddy’s little girl.” But the mantra can also become a burden for some grown girls. Many young ladies who have the privilege to have their father around can sometimes find it frustrating when their so-called Dads become nuisance to their relationships.

As parents, there should be a boundary to how nosy fathers can be to grown-up kids’ affair. Full monitoring is perfectly fine when kids are young but at college-age (17-up), I think parents should back off a little bit. Being overprotective or helicopter parents can backfire. Some kids would just rebel and start doing things contrary to what their parents want.

The father of American Idol star, Jordin Sparks (both inset), once said he would kill any guy who tries to date his 18 yrs old daughter. For such statement, I’d say he is an example of a jerky parent. He definately can’t be with his daughter 24/7.

The video below show another example of an over-zealot father setting the 9 rules for dating his daughter

Why Didn’t We Think of this Invention

20 06 2008

An in-law asked me “why didn’t we think of this?” while sending me some images of new inventions created by regular folks like you and I. Therefore, I think it’s a good idea to talk about ideas.

Inventions and creativity seem elusive to many people. But they don’t have to be like that. Most human inventions are not anywhere near the realm of geeky lab coat-wearing scientists or engineering physicists. Ideas that lead to invention come in various shades and forms, most of which are no space-rocket science. Nevertheless, what come to most people mind when they hear the word “invention” are great geniuses like Al Einstein, Con Edison, and Henry Ford; whereas an unlikely or ordinary person may have inventor-abilities if given necessarily tools and motivation.

Many non-living things we see around us were created as a result of average people’s concept – i.e. common Joes and Janes. You might be one of those people who knock themselves on the head for not acting when they had that eureka!! after you see the same thought-of concept implemented by a go-getter. Then all you can say is: “I should have [could have, would have] done that.” Yes, we have such regret sometimes because we never follow our gut feelings, or we simply let some non-thinking loser(s) discourage us that it is not possible.

Contrary to popular beliefs, you don’t actually have to produce any product to make money out of your creativity. According to Harvey Reese, the author of the book “How To License Your Million Dollar Idea,” there are ways in which one could execute ideas without putting his or her hard-earned money into them. Reese indicates: let the deep pocket manufacturers spent their money to make your licensed idea into fruition. In other words, you make a percentage on each of your idea-product sold. And he warns to stay away from the so-called “invention companies.”

Personally, I can relate to invention companies scam. How I wish I had his book before forking about $1000 to a company called InventHelp on W 34th St, NYC. This company never live to his name-slogan. The only thing I got for my buck is a glossy hard-cover invention presentation, which is now gathering dust on my book shelf.

So if you have cool ideas you want to turn into inventions. You might want to do some research at the following links:

These could save you money instead of rushing to a patent lawyer. In the meantime, you can also save money by filing for a “provisional” [temporary] patent while you research the viability of your idea. Provisional patent can be filed with the Patent Office. Browsing these links would be a good starting point for would-be inventors. The site provide important information and hints on inventions. It is always imperative peruse independent sources, less you fall victim of unscrupulous invention companies which advertise in the media.

The images below are inventions of individuals who are proactive enough to take their concepts to the next level.

Think U’re Fat? Check this out: Big-bone and Sexy!

18 06 2008

If you feel insecure about the your “extra poundage” you may need to reconsider. I just received pix from someone who simply said: “I will never complain about my thighs again as long as I live…” Well, I think there are too much ado about people being overweight. Who cares! as long as the person affected feels good about him or herself. In fact, some of the happiest and most bubbling people I’ve ever known are fat; and my sister is one of them. She is the only fat person in the family and the most fascinating one. She loves to party and her gorgeous attires usually make her the envy of so-called slim-girls. Although, my sister is not as big as the lady in the pictures, but she reminds me of her outgoing personality. She would grab the mic at any opportunity and make her self the center of attraction.

For all ‘thick’ ladies, the point here is that: there are some circumstances in life that you might not be able to control. No one can judge you based on your weight or your appearance, without your permission. If people see being fat as your weakness, you owe it to yourself to prove them wrong. That is, turn what they see as weakness into your greatest strength. However, if being heavy compromises your health, I would suggest you shed that kilo. If there is no eminent risk, tell the naysayers to ‘take a hike’ and enjoy your blessed self – it’s God-given. If Monique can build her brand around “thick madam,” why can’t you?
