SEX SCANDAL PREVENTION GUIDE FOR US POLITICIANS

by MullOverThis

The day has come where people smart enough to get elected or appointed to public office need survival tips for remaining in office due to sexual improprieties.  Never mind the MORAL virtue we might hope people who have been entrusted to impact our welfare through legislative, judiciary and executive functions should have.  Forget all of that.  Politicians are people too.  They are human and real too.  There is still a fragment of good old countrypersons who  just don’t want to know that our trusted officers brains are responsive to their private parts, as opposed to the hope that  their private parts are responsive to their brains.  We expect that of pervs (short for perverts), pedophiles, sexual criminals, porn producers and stars, sex traffickers, and those committed to providing stellar sexual service to the underbelly of society:  escorts, strippers, prostitutes, high-class hookers, and whores.

Yes, sexual freedom is part of the American fabric which distinguishes us from other nations.  Needless to say, that is why infidelity is such a hum drum concept nowadays.  Who cares?  There is plenty of room on Craig’s list and wait a minute, even websites dedicated to placing wandering spouses with a good hookup or fling.  Love, honesty, honor, integrity, loyalty and preserving our health are notions best encapsulated when reading  a good heroic novel or when perusing century-old family albums.  The world has and is still changing and people who subscribe to some sort of moral excellence are too judgmental, played out and blah.

In the context of present times, a grown-behind married man separated from his wife shouldn’t have any problems having consensual sex with a young woman who just turned 18; At least, that’s the story to which  the first Chinese-American elected to the House, Representative  David Wu is sticking. The fact that the young girl claims it was not consensual may not play out in the future.  Apparently, the young lady knows it will be his word against hers.  Well, I guess Rep. Wu will just sit on the icky bench and join some of his former colleagues  now co-louses, Chris Lee, John EnSign and Anthony Weiner.   Since these men don’t seem to have enough good sense to know how to be a public servant while safely unzipping the pants at the same time, here’s some discretionary advice:

1.  Remember you’re a public servant and what you do in the privacy of your own home or behind some bushes in a park can make or break your entire political career.  There aren’t that many former D.C.  Mayor Marion Barry’s.   Not too many of you can be a straight-up crack addict, curse

AMY WINEHOUSE DEATH: SHOULD THERE BE CRIMINAL CHARGES?

by MullOverThis

In a nutshell, MJ died and his exclusive on call live-in physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, aka shoot-him up drug dealer, was charged with involuntary manslaughter. 

Bartenders who serve known alcoholics open their establishments up to liability for any consequent damage alcoholics may cause as a result of their impairment. 

According to Winehouse’s mom, Janis,  who saw her the day before Winehouse succumbed, she  believed that death was inevitable.  According to various news reports, Winehouse purchased heroine, cocaine,  ketamine and the speculative killer, “a bad ecstasy pill” the night before her death, in the midst of a “weeks-long” drinking binge. 

Should people who service known drug abusers be charged with criminal charges upon the untimely deaths-or timely considering their lifestyles-of known abusers when the cause of death is largely attributable to drug use?  Does the fact that some abuse is solely from the use of illicit drugs merit a different rational for dealer culpability?  Should medical doctors who service ill-advised  affluent patients with prescription drugs without a proper medical screening (over the phone) be held liable for lethal drug combination deaths?  Should drug dealers be liable for birth defects/abnormalities in newborn infants born to drug-addicted mothers?

Although many of these tragedies would not take place if  dealers and low-grade legal physicians were not accessible and failed to supply the abusers, we ought to be careful about increasingly transferring guilt and corresponding liability to the middle people.  Grown people who willfully begin a life of drug addiction, manipulate professionals to get their fix, or find themselves addicted to some substance that impairs their physiological abilities and live a life that affects themselves and may cause utter destruction to innocent bystanders, need to be held responsible for their own demise, and any additional damages.  We may mourn and seek to blame others who had a part in the tragedy because the end of death is to difficult to bear in the face of the vulnerability through which we often “see” addicts. What we have to face it the hardest fact:  people will find whatever they want to get whatever they want and their addictions may lead to DEATH.  While the ultimate eradiction of drug addiction should include controlling the availability of good drugs and annihilation of illegal drugs, no one is responsible for anyone else’s life and decisions.

*Mulloverthis notes that in a few circumstances, drug addiction may be “forced” upon addicts, and in these circumstances criminal charges are clearly merited.

AMY WHINEHOUSE DEAD AT AGE 27

by MullOverThis

Amy Whinehouse passed away today, July 23, 2011.

Although Whinehouse enjoyed record-breaking music success as the first British artist to win 5 Grammy Awards in 2008  while winning Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Album of the Year, and tied the record of the female with the most Grammy wins at one time, her artistic accomplishments could not overshadow her addiction and battles with alcoholism, heroin and also mental illness.  Presumably, she died of a drug overdose, although official police reports have noted her cause of death as “unexplained”.

Amy Whinehouse joins the annuls of incredibly talented musicians, writers and performers who succumbed because of drug addiction.  MJ’s passing and now Whinehouse compels us to remember that drugs do not respect fame, notoriety, wealth, or recognition.  When prescription drugs or illicit drugs are abused, any human being is prone to suffering a tragic end, which like Whinehouse, may be the ultimate: death.

Don’t do drugs.

HOARDERS AND FREEGANS

by MullOverThis

Recently, I watched a stand-up comedian joke about the television reality show, “SuperNanny.” The joke depicted a stereotypical response to the need for a Super Nanny in a Black family.   The show would take a few minutes because Black folks don’t have time for the how-to-relate-to-the-brat nonsense.  We tend to-and this is a figure of speech for all the alarming literalists who skipped the use of rhetoric in their communication development-“knock our kids out”, plain and simple.  We are not going have a specialist come into our homes, observe the problems,  and tell us how to get down to our children at eye level to get them to listen.  Bada boom, bada bing.  Mission accomplished.

Well, when I saw the A&E reality show, “Hoarders”, the aforementioned joke came to mind.  I thought solely from the perspective of the hoarder’s family members; Who the heck has time to dilly dally with these messy folk and tip toe around their near insanity to get them to donate, recycle or throw away cherished junk when these situations involve gross health violations?  When people live in mounds of things compacted from wall to wall for years, there are definitely other visitors without keys roaming around from all sorts of germs to rodents.  Many of the hoarders do not have working toilets, workable kitchens, or one clean spot within their homes.  As I began to watch more and more of the episodes, one resounding theme became clear:  each hoarder suffered from some form of anxiety, the majority of which evolved from a traumatizing life experience.  So, most of these hoarders are mentally ill.  Then, I realized that they must be handled with care because they are routinely living alone, or with a family member suffering from the effects of the hoarder’s mental illness, while undiagnosed and unmedicated.  Many of them defecate and urinate in the midst of their utter mess, or have to go outside in the middle of the night to find a bathroom.  Just about every episode, someone complained of the pungent odors within the hoarder homes.

Then I reflected upon another group of people who have legitimized gross living:  Freegans.   Although their entire life-choice to opt out of conventional societal living by squelching consumerism (hence greedy corporate gain) may be considered heroic or even admirable, the fact still remains that they strongly advocate and practice dumpster diving.  Hello.  When is the last time you saw a dumpster hauled for cleaning?  Who sanitizes dumpsters?  Who frequents dumpsters?  Rats, possums, raccoons, and the minimalist freegans.

So, depending upon the conscious cause, while many are fighting for the impoverished all over the world to have sustainable primary food sources outside of garbage, others are directing cohorts to the garbage heap-full of all sorts of waste- to salvage wasted foods.

It seems as if the hoarders and freegans may register on very different sides of the respectability meter, while they both have some questionable core issues of chosen filthiness.

NOTHING LIKE A NEW ENGLAND SUMMER

by MullOverThis

I woke up this morning thinking, “There is nothing like a New England summer.”

And, I am not vested in any tourism authority, either.  If you can catch a long weekend away, I recommend anywhere you can see the beautiful views, enjoy the endearing heat, and smell the fragrance of wildflowers and the blue/gray oceans.  Have some fresh tuna or a local fish, if you’d like.  Amongst so many water sport activities you may plan, don’t forget to reserve some time to chill:  lay back, look up, and ingest it all with a nice cool drink.

CASEY ANTHONY: IN HIDING

by MullOverThis

It looks like Casey Anthony doesn’t have the freedom to return home and live as a free US resident because of death threats and all of that other kind of stuff.

For real, though.  Who is that concerned about Caylee that s/he would risk her/his freedom to teach Casey Anthony a lesson?  Listen up, folks.  Casey Anthony may not be in jail, but she will never be free to get away with murder again, IF she is truly responsible for murdering her own child.  She is in the same category that OJ was in:  Narcissist get yourself in trouble again and no one will believe you.

Caylee is gone and she is not suffering.  She died a gruesome death, but she is not hurting. This may seem harsh, but it is true.   For all of those who are concerned about the voiceless children who are killed by their mamas, stop by the nearest abortion clinic or look in your own closet and backyard and help the voiceless infants whose existence and right to living-like Caylee- is conditional upon their mamas desires, whims, definitions or choices.  Caylee has no voice and neither do the millions of infants butchered in the US each year because our culture has legitimized infanticide.

Bewildering Donna Simpson Wants To Gain Weight

by MullOverThis

Donna Simpson is on record as the heaviest woman to give birth.

Reputedly, Simpson wants to gain 300 pounds to break another Guinness World Record as the world’s most obese woman.  Wow.  What an aspiration.  She now makes somewhere around $100,000 yearly from her website, which makes her superlative gluttony lucrative. Clearly, this is a job for Fame Whores Anonymous.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s my question:  Does Donna “think” at all?  That is a logical point of inquiry because if Ms. Simpson at least thinks, then maybe her brain will travel and arrive at the destination that she is in poor health and could drop dead at any minute.  Upon arrival at this inevitable conclusion, maybe-and only maybe-Ms. Simpson will realize that $100,000 a year isn’t a lot of money when you’re dead, or alive.  Furthermore, another Guinness title won’t raise her 4-year-old daughter, either.

This here thingy is bewildering.  For real.  Maybe she should revise her ambitions for her next Guinness World Record title to woman with  longest human fungal big toe-nail and put up a lucrative website with tours to pictures of a gargantuan blue-black toenail.  Meanwhile, she should attempt to lose weight and curtail her diabetes so she can live and be a mother to her child.

Smackeroos Can Be Deadly

by MullOverThis

To all those who are afraid to leave a domestic violence situation, consider that many who have been murdered never thought that death would be the outcome.  Although some have the instinct and know that one of the two are going to end up dead unless things change, many never think the fatal punch, slip, kick, thrust, headlock, bullet, stab wound or whatever will be the last.

If you are afraid to leave, you should be even more afraid to STAY.  All that you may have to leave behind, will also be left behind if there is no more you.  The people who love and value you will also lose much:  their loved one.
