  • Has Fatherhood Become the New Mercedes-Benz?

    It used to be that a tailor-made suit and a Mercedes-Benz were context clues signaling a man’s ability to “provide” and consequently, those were things made a man "sexy". But could it be that for today’s professional women, fatherhood is the modern-day equivalent of a Benz? ...

  • What Does This Election Tell Us About What A "Real American" Is?

    “What on earth is he talking about?”... to put it simply..what does a Real American look like, sound like, act like, eat, wear and drive? Where do Real Americans live? What religion do they belong to? The questions are endless, but as we put answers to the questions will you fit the mold of a “Real American”?

  • “Rope-a-Dope” or Political “SHAKE and BAKE?

    Here’s the deal… President Obama was eaten alive in the 1st debate... BUT could this have been a good thing? Regardless of whether he was off his game or engaging in the most daring “rope-a-dope” in the history of politics, that awful debate performance sets the Obama campaign up for a little "shake and bake." Here’s why.

  • Look Ma! I'm On Web TV!

I have severely neglected the blog because I'm finishing the editing of my short film, but there are some things that require that I take a break from that so that I can put in my 2 cents... The most recent thing is the report that liberals are up in arms over President  Elect Obama's choice to have Pastor Rick Warren to speak at his inauguration.  To them I replied on the Huffington Post thread:

Give me a Friggin Break! I'm a progressive...liberal...lefty or whatever you want to call it, but some of us are really starting to pi$$ me off with this constant whining and complaining about every little thing that Obama does, that is centrist or not to the left! I don't have a problem with Rick Warren... even though I don't agree with his positions I appreciate the tone with which he conducts himself and his discourse when speaking about said issues, which he holds as a matter of faith.... 

Think about it... When Hannity and Limbaugh and O'Riley were chastising Obama for being "associated" with Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers and whoever else they could find... we were quick to praise Obama for being able to break bread with those whom he disagreed with... we compared him to Jesus for being able to be friendly with those whom have questionable pasts, but not necessarily share their pasts....

Now look at us... HYPOCRITES! If anything why not try to look at Rick Warren being there in the same light we used to defend him against the right wing attacks... What we need is for the right wing in this country to take a lesson from Rick Warren's decorum and conduct on how to express disagreement without being disagreeable and venomous, which is what many of the right (preachers included) do... And the last thing we need is to give them any fodder by becoming their far left equivalent.

It's not like he chose Pat Robertson!.... Lighten Up!

"Death gotta be easy 'cause life is hard." This line was uttered by 50 cent in his song, "Many Men." There are a lot of people in the world who have never heard this song, but would whole hearterdly agree with 50's premise. Look no farther than the December issue of Men's Health magazine. With a collection of readers who wouldn't hesitate to drop Bobby McFarren's name in a "greatest rapper ever debate", it's safe to say that 50's line wasn't the influence in the December 2008's article on male suicide. Regardless of inspiration, some of the figures are no less than alarming. The fact that the Golden Gate Bridge averages a jumper every other week since its construction in 1937 speaks volumes to the fact that there are alot of us who aren't handling our stresses well. Factor in addictions to alcohol, sex, pain killers, illegal drugs, and various other vices, and it furthers the fact that many of us have problems dealing with adverse conditions.... Read more.
