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.

Dick Cheney Wants Another Fight After 2 Wars

11 08 2008

I thick some leaders need to take cue from Abraham Lincoln who said “I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.” Mr. Tough Guy, VP Dick Cheney is beating another war drum. With unfinished wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Cheney is talking tough about Georgian-Russian war which started last week. In a TV report yesterday, while President Bush made a softer tone that “we strongly condemn the bombing outside of South Ossetia, Dick Cheney said: “Russia’s military action against Georgia (in Europe) must not go unanswered.”

I think such a statement is undiplomatic and should not come from a guy who once avoided behind drafted to war. There are better ways to show solidarity for a country, not by bullying. As for the Russian, they have been put into the back-burner since the end of cold war while United States has been flexing military might all over the world. So a slight provocation gives the former Soviet Republic excuse to come back, a show of force to remind the world that Russia is a super power too, unfortunately at its neighbors’ peril.
(Picture above shows Russian tanks unit fired toward Georgia.)

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!

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

Jesse Jackson called Black People ‘N*gg#rs’

17 07 2008

There is even worst language used by Rev. Jesse Jackson on Fox News that didn’t come out last week. Bill O’ Reilly now confirmed in another Fox show, yesterday, that Jackson called his own people n*ggers but the initial TV segment was filtered out. Here is what Jackson said: “Barack…is talking down to black people…telling the n*ggers how to behave.. I wanna cut his guts out.”

And according to TVNewser, O’Reilly said the reason why he did not want that part to surface is because: “I’m not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson. And I’m not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that is not relevant to the general subject: one civil rights leader disparaging another, over policy. So we held it back [but] some weasel leaked it to the internet. That person wants to hurt Jesse Jackson.”

Oh! really, O’Reilly? This world would eventually be a better place if venomous Bill O’ Reilly can talk like that.

Initially, I think the language Jackson used about “guts” is not really a big deal; because this was a guy-to-guy talk. Men, no matter what background, use slangs, jargons and stuff like that when in the mist of their peers. It’s all bravado. However, such language shouldn’t be coming up from someone who wears a ‘clergy title’ on his sleeves.

How much more for Jesse to use racial slurs against the very people he claims to fight for. Isn’t the same Jackson, who advocated banning ‘N’ word, way before Rev Al Sharpton followed suit? Apparently, this isn’t going to be a race issue, but immoral, because Jackson is no Don Imus. So, Rev Al Sharpton should sharpen his rhetoric impartially against his long-time ally: he should start picketing at the Rainbow Coalition Headquarter, as a matter of cause.

BTW, Jesse Jackson had a legitimate reason [but another immoral issue] to vex as Obama teaches responsibility because, if you don’t know, Jackson had a “lovechild” out of wedlock with his assistant, Karin Stanford, Thus that make him absenteeism or partly irresponsible father. So, it is understandable why Obama’s speech hit some core. It was never about Jackson being jealousy of Barack Obama as widely buzzed.

Fathers Forget: Message to All Dads

15 06 2008

Happy Fathers’ Day! to all men out there. It does not matter if you are good dad, deadbeat father, or you don’t have kid(s) at all. The piece I am about to present applies to everyone. Since today is Fathers’ Day, I wouldn’t like men-bashing here today. Today is well-deserved for all loving fathers. Since I am a father of a beautiful daughter, I know what it takes to be parent. The main message here is: we all need to show humility and not to take our loved-ones for granted. I couldn’t think of a better way to express this message other than referred to Dale Carnegie’s classic book, “How to win Friends and Influence People.” A book I discerned three years ago. Among many timeless hints and references in the book, an essay by Livingston Larned entitled “Father Forgets” is a must-read for every father or aspiring parents. So inspiring is the essay content that I actually recommended it to my friends. Here is how it goes:

*******

Father Forgets
W. Livingston Larned

Listen, son: I am saying this as you lies asleep, one little paw crumpled under your cheek and the blond curls stickily wet on your damp forehead. I have stolen into your room alone. Just a few minutes ago, as I sat reading my paper in the library, a stifling wave of remorse swept over me. Guiltily I came to your bedside.

 

There are the things I was thinking, son: I had been cross to you. I scolded you as you were dressing for school because you gave your face merely a dab with a towel. I took you to task for not cleaning your shoes. I called out angrily when you threw some of your things on the floor.
.
At breakfast I found fault, too. You spilled things. You gulped down your food. You put your elbows on the table. You spread butter too thick on your bread. And as you started off to play and I made for my train, you turned and waved a hand and called, “Goodbye, Daddy!” and I frowned, and said in reply, “Hold your shoulders back!”
.
Then it began all over again in the late afternoon. As I came up the road I spied you, down on your knees, playing marbles. There were holes in your stockings. I humiliated you before your boyfriends by marching you ahead of me to the house. Stockings were expensive-and if you had to buy them you would be more careful! Imagine that, son, from a father!
.
Do you remember, later, when I was reading in the library, how you came in timidly, with a sort of hurt look in your eyes? When I glanced up over my paper, impatient at the interruption, you hesitated at the door. “What is it you want?” I snapped.
.
You said nothing, but ran across in one tempestuous plunge, and threw your arms around my neck and kissed me, and your small arms tightened with an affection that God had set blooming in your heart and which even neglect could not wither. And then you were gone, pattering up the stairs.
.
Well, son, it was shortly afterwards that my paper slipped from my hands and a terrible sickening fear came over me. What has habit been doing to me? The habit of finding fault, of reprimanding-this was my reward to you for being a boy. It was not that I did not love you; it was that I expected too much of youth. I was measuring you by the yardstick of my own years.
.
And there was so much that was good and fine and true in your character. The little heart of you was as big as the dawn itself over the wide hills. This was shown by your spontaneous impulse to rush in and kiss me good night. Nothing else matters tonight, son. I have come to your bedside in the darkness, and I have knelt there, ashamed!
.
It is feeble atonement; I know you would not understand these things if I told them to you during your waking hours. But tomorrow I will be a real daddy! I will chum with you, and suffer when you suffer, and laugh when you laugh. I will bite my tongue when impatient words come. I will keep saying as if it were a ritual: “He is nothing but a boy-a little boy!”
.
I am afraid I have visualized you as a man. Yet as I see you now, son, crumpled and weary in your cot, I see that you are still a baby. Yesterday you were in your mother’s arms, your head on her shoulder. I have asked too much, too much.
********

I hope you all enjoy the Fathers’ Day. I can’t wait to go out with my daughter.

Cameron Diaz, P Diddy: ‘D’ Beauty playing with ‘D’ Beast

9 06 2008

This past week, the Media buzzed about Cameron Diaz’s latest companion who happened to be a ‘playa’ we all know too well. The dude born “Sean Combs” aka “Puff Daddy” aka “Bad Boy” aka “P. Diddy” aka “Sean John” aka what next…? – Phew!!! I’m having headache here. If a guy can have numerous aliases in his life time, then you need to wonder who this guy really is or just conclude that he is man of different characters.

Consequently, it would only be logical for someone like Diddy to thrive on varieties. Some people would say: So what? “Variety is the spice of life.” But variety could be a self-centered and exploitation behavior of seducing women, especially when a music mogul like P.Diddy is involved. Borrowing wisdom from John McCain’s book, “Character is Destiny,” It could be better said that “Character is Integrity.” Undoubtedly, P. Diddy must have gotten integrity in his business dealings otherwise he wouldn’t have been so successful. However, he has “zero integrity” as far as “love deals” are concerned.

Throwback, P. Diddy and his cohort, the late Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie, had lifestyle patterns of being circled by groupies [2 smartest-ass groupies of such encounters are Lil Kim and Faith Evan; both of whom made it big; thanks to Biggie]. Just as B.I.G. was allegedly dating the two aforementioned ladies simultaneously, he had a baby-mama which some claimed to be his common law wife.

This same approach has been a norm for P. Diddy who fathered two children from two different women [ex groupies? Possibly!], while having affair with Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo). When J. Lo became bygone, the Bad Boy was back cripping with one of his baby-mamas, Kim Porter. Two more babies, he was out on the street again looking for more lame chicks. Since his newest babies were born, there has been many reports of him romancing some ‘white chicks’ on the French Riviera and God knows where else… It was also buzzed that there are other faceless jump-offs includes his protégé turned singer, Cassie. And the most recent hi-profile babe attempt before Diaz was Eddie Murphy’s quickie wife, Tracey Edmonds.

Therefore, how in this world could Cameron Diaz hook with P. Diddy? If nothing else, the Bad Boy appellation is enough to make any woman [in her right sense] to run for the hills. If the Diddy-Diaz love-affair materializes, it could be the same old factors of ‘money’ and ‘power’ which can draw even A-listers women to suboptimal men. P. Diddy is what he is. Old habits of womanizing don’t die easily, and many times they never did. In my view, P. Diddy is not slowing down anytime soon in his escapades. He is out to taste very “woman race” on the surface of this planet. He had black Latino, and white chicks. It is only a matter of time before he goes hunting for some ‘Asian’ and ‘Eskimos’ chicks.

As for Cameron Diaz, the best way not to have a broken heart is not to expect anything much from a “rolling stone” like P. Diddy. Hey Cameron, “they say half bread is better than none.” So have fun baby, while it lasted and dust off your skirt when it is over; pretend as if it never happened.
