The Big G has such a hilarious sense of humor and irony sometimes. Here we are, nigh on 2010, and according to the Chinese calendar, the Year of the Tiger! Ain't that the truth! No doubt, we have a kazillion Tiger headlines to anticipate this year. Much to Mr. Woods chagrin, I'm sure and Elin's embarrassment and dismay!
It never ceases to amaze me how a man who is virtually 'king of the world' will risk losing everything through the simple act of unbuttoning his fly! I guess there's a reason that the old adage of 'thinking with one's penis' is bandied about so often! Especially this year, time and again the headlines have reminded us that having fame, power, talent & wealth are no counterbalance to a 'lustful' heart. Just ask Jimmy about that one!
Too often, though, the media conveniently forget there are REAL people and families involved here. Once again, little lives being scarred and hearts being broken. I'm sure those two beautiful little kids will be so proud when they come to understand that, along with Dad's other 'sterling' accomplishments, he also had a mistress in every golf bag! I wonder if they give trophies to 'Golfer with the Most Puttz Sunk'?
But personally, none of these 'screamlines' ever really surprise ME. Having been an escort in downtown Chicago for ten and a half years, I saw these same yahoos walk through my door everyday. Though there is something to be said for nature and the effort to fight off instinctually inbred genetics, why some man would lay everything he's worked so hard his whole life for on the line JUST TO GET LAID is still a concept beyond my own grasp.
My empathy lies with the innocents who must stand by while the sh*t hits the fan, through probably no fault of their own. What could the itty bitties possibly have done to deserve a childhood memory such as this? Nothing, I'm sure, but love their Dad. And this is how he rewards them?!
So, here's to you, Tiger! May the Chinese stay true in their ancient wisdom and show you more kindess in the coming year than you showed your own family. I'm sure you're gonna need it!

Is not REAL parenting, people! Watching someone else's family implode WITH YOUR HELP is not going to repair your OWN familial dysfunctions! If it IS making you feel better about your home life than I recommend you start saving for a BETTER therapist!
Evidently, Big Brother learned nothing from the Loudon's (look it up!). And given that Hollywood's taste for chewing up and shredding young wannabes has not waned since the 70's, parading your families inner most secrets on national TV has now become a NATIONAL PASTIME!
STOP CARING about Jon & Kate's hapless escapades of mismatched souls, being recorded for posterity for their unfortunate children. And while 8 young little lives are forever scarred by parents who are too vain and greedy to BE real parents, the rest of you dysfuns thrill in the ride. It's not an amusement park, peeps, it's 8 little futures.
But I think that point was made with an exclamation by 'ROC(ksinmyhead)TOMOM'! When did this country start producing young women who think the Hollywood road is paved by bottles and babies? When some lamebrain in Hwood decided he could cash in on our growing downward social spiral, that's when. Thank the Big G that the media decided it wasn't gonna be the one to TAKE the screwing and backed off that bad, bloated belly!
And I'm really tired of right wingers, who while pretending to espouse family values, i.e., Sarie from Alaskie, are REALLY doing things like fighting in court to keep a father from his son. Hey, Sarah, maybe if you'd taken a little more time with your OWN family you wouldn't be in this mess now, ya think?
So back off the remotes, peeps and spend some time with the kids watching Discovery or the History Channel. The whole family might just learn something.

P.S. To the reader who called me, in so many words, a blowhard: I'll go up against Sarie with my 357 anyday, bud! My family has 2800 acres in the UP. Any takers, eh?

Saving the Private Polanski

In keeping with this week's theme, I would like to now offer my opinion on the other side of the coin of child abuse: allegations made for personal gain or profit.
Yes, I'm talking about the mess that fellow Polack Roman Polanski has been in for the last 30 odd years. Why won't this thing die a natural death? I'll tell you why: it STILL generates headlines and consequently, dollars, for the rag mags.
Not that I'm condoning what the man had done, not by any means. But put yourself in his shoes at that time, with visions of Sharon's pregnant body hanging from the rafters and Charlie haunting his nightmares and who knows? You could have been with that 13 year old too, perhaps?
And speaking of that 13 year old: WHERE WERE HER PARENTS? How does one that young get into a situation like that? My guess is lack of parental supervision.
But it is time for ALL the rest of us to stop speculation of past trespasses. The girl has agreed that yes, he did her wrong, but no, I'm not amenable to pressing this matter any further. So, why doesn't the judicial system and the public leave poor old Roman to his private hell and move on? I think he's suffered enough already, don't you?

Looking Forward to 2010!

After yesterday's blog, I decided to review my 'bucket' list for 2009, to see what I had accomplished during this past year and begin my New Year's Resolutions list for 2010. Following is a compilation of some of my achievements in 2009:

1. Remain unemployed because the economy still sucks and I'm old.CHECK
2. Stress myself out everyday wondering if I'll have a roof over my head tomorrow.CHECK
3. Decide between ramen or buttered toast for dinner. CHECK
4. Pay the power bill + keep my fingers crossed they don't shut off the Dish til NEXT month.CHECK.
5. Buy dog and cat food while I eat out of cans.CHECK
6. Feel sorry for myself and ponder ending it all.CHECK
7. Put myself in Big G's hands because they'll never pass a health care bill that helps ME.CHECK
8. Become the 'perfect woman' because my teeth are BAD and I don't have dental. CHECK (Rednecks will get this).
9. Wonder if I'll EVER have grandchildren. CHECK (Hi! kids).
10.Take another beating because I'm a DIE HARD Cubs, Bears & USC fan. CHECK, CHECK & CHECK!

So, now that I'm feeling so 'accomplished', I will also share with you my 'bucket' list for 2010. I've decided I'm not gettin' any younger and 2010 is such a nice, round number, sooo far away from 1954 that it's frightening, so like I said before: damn the torpedoes! FULL STEAM AHEAD IN 2010!
1. Rock my blog to the top of the media 'heap' . If you check today's Google listing, you'll find that TheDailyP has been hijacked by none other than RHIANNA! Unfortunately, if you click the link it takes you nowhere! Speculation has it that it's a Big G insider job! I wonder if I need to email Gloria again?
2. Nail my audition at AGT! I've got 40 years of suppressed, seething, yearning talent ready to come jumping out of this ole body and I'VE GOT NO PLANS TO BLOW IT!
3. Remain stern in my resolve that no matter what, me & the fam ALWAYS indulge in the best holiday meals we can afford. Screw it!
4. Pamper my pets and my kids' pets 'cuz it's the closest I'll be to grambabies for awhile and they all give such great comfort and unconditional love in these trying times.
5. Never take NO for an answer.
6. Convince my data plan carrier I need a ZILLION MB's even tho I really can't afford them.
7. Keep communally drop kicking those that need a 'good swift one'.
8. Live it up in my new Malibu pad surrounded by my kids, 'adopted' kids & pets, sipping Margie's w/Matt.
9. Do everything in my power to record and publish "Innocence Pays' and donate all profits to NCMEC in Adam's and Christopher's names.
10. NEVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN let the negativity I was raised with creep into my life, R.I.P. mom & dad.

That's a short blurb of what I'm looking forward to in 2010. Now, do your homework AND start that list! 2010's right around the bend!

OH, NO! It happened again! OH, NO! It happened again! Like a bad Pink Floyd song, the national headlines just keep repeating themselves: CHILD ABDUCTED, CHILD SEXUALLY ASSAULTED, CHILD KILLED BY ABUSE. Have we become so inured that these declarations no longer bother us? Sometimes, I really wonder about our national conscience!
When you read about car thieves getting life sentences, and then you ponder WHAT LITTLE IS BEING DONE on a daily basis to deter children from being victimized, it highlights just how sk*ewed up our country is. When we value steel over flesh and blood, it is time for us to take a collective 'let's do SOMETHING about this' attitude and try to SAVE OUR KIDS!
As horrible as it is to ponder, I'm sure you don't have to dig too deep to find a child victimization story that has affected your life. I personally had something hit home when my own children were younger. Living in the relative rural safety of Iroquois county in Illinois, you can imagine the fears generated by the local headlines screaming that a young boy from Aroma Park, (which was 8 miles from our hometown!) had been abducted from the banks of the Kankakee river while fishing, sexually assaulted, brutally slain and then dumped in a local preserve like so much garbage. Chills ran through me! So long, sense of security! So long, peace of mind! As a parent you learn through these tragedies to be ever vigilant, to NEVER let your guard down!
And to be thankful that you have never had to walk in THOSE SHOES! I can't fathom how parents continue to function after losing a child so horrifically! They are in my thoughts and prayers every day when I pray for the safety of my own children. And yet, the stories just keep coming!
But this ONE time, the Big G decided to smile on our pathetic state and give us a Christmas miracle! An abducted child was returned home for the holidays. Unfortunately, that is too often a fluke and not the norm. And the body count continues to rise as our nation turns a blind eye!
So today, I am asking all friends of this blog, moms and dads, OR anyone who thinks that our children should be a NATIONAL PRIORITY, to take time in this New Year, after the celebrations and good cheer, to make doing SOMETHING, ANYTHING, about this national tragedy ONE OF YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS.
Whether you become a block parent, volunteer for crossing guard duty, post pedophiles' profiles to inform your community, etc., please make it YOUR priority in the New Year to SAVE OUR KIDS!
Thank you and may the Big G keep all our kids safe!

P.S. In relation to my quest to win AGT this season, please see the comment box below this blog. There you will see posted the lyrics to a song I was compelled to write one day after I had driven past the Aroma Park city limit sign. After Christopher's tragic taking, I could never again drive past that sign without thinking of and saying a prayer for him.
