No Filter Friday

Oh my word. There's so much nonsense going on, I don't even know where to start.
  1. I've seen all over the news that some 51 year old actor married a 16 year old girl. Really? And this is okay because . . . the girl's parents gave their consent? Really? Aren't we simply saying it's okay for some horny 50 year old guy to marry a teenager? Chalk another one up for the over-sexed male population. Pathetic.
  2. One of the stars of Jackass crashed his car while drunk driving and died. Here's a prime teaching moment: Don't be a jackass and drive drunk.
  3. Now that summer is full-throttle upon us in the Northeast, we have serious mosquito issues. Apparently, these little suckers prefer women to men and blondes to brunettes. Is it safe to say mosquitos are middle-aged and male?
  4. Bristol Palin wrote a memoir. She's 20. How much of a memoir can that be? She's barely had a life yet!
  5. Hey, Tracy Morgan - not funny!
  6. This Southwest airlines pilot airing his derogatory comments on an open mic is another example of the lack of respect people have for one another. What ever happened to the saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?"
  7. What is the deal with the car commercial that ends with saying "you're s.o.l.", meaning you're shit out of luck? This rubs me wrong on 2 levels. This increased use of acronyms in every day life is annoying. Pretty soon we'll all just speak in code. Secondly, when did it became acceptable to use the word "shit" on primetime television? I've got children watching this stuff!


  1. Love your blog post and I guess there's some sense in all this nonsense. Anyways, wanted to say that it's great to read post like yours. Awesome!!! Visiting from Cup of Joe blog hop. Come on over to Espanol para Ninos and join the Spanish journey.
    have a Great awesOme Day!!!

  2. 51 yr old marrying 16 yr old so wrong on so many levels! Just appaled. Where are her parents? Jackass star was apparently tweeting too with pics of him drinking before he crashed and died. Tragic but hopefully will teach some a lesson? Agree Bristol Palin, come on really? Have a great weekend!

  3. Enjoyed this post as well. You have some good stuff over here. I will be stopping back in.

  4. As a fellow NJ resident and a brunette I can honestly say the mosquitos love brunettes too. Ugh! Evening walks to the duck pond are on hold 'til fall.

    And my heart breaks for the parents of that Jackass star and I'm furious at him for being so careless with a young and otherwise heathy life. There are so many begging God for just a few more months or days or years and he just took and threw his time away. Tragic.
