April Vogue Cover....what's all the fuss????

Bottom line, when people want to stir the pot, they will. In April, the cover of Vogue magazine will have a picture of LeBron James and Gisele Bundchen. LJ is holding her around the waist and looks as if he is screaming. There are people freaking out about it saying it is racial, it is sterotyping the black them I say get over it. In my opinion it is their own insecurities and fears in regards to race that are driving them to say these things, or maybe they just want to stir the pot. However LJ is a professional on and off the court, do you think that he would have approved the photos if he felt it portrayed him in a negative light let alone the black athlete? I myself think he is smarter and more professional than that. In an article written by MEGAN K. SCOTT, Associated Press Writer, I found what I think says it best, "he is pleased with the cover, saying he was “just showing a little emotion.” “Everything my name is on is going to be criticized in a good way or bad way,” James told the paper. “Who cares what anyone says?”" That statement should end all the nonsense right there. Too many people like to freak out over what people say, as LJ put it, who cares what people say.

Left Hand Turn....

Tell me why, please for the love of Pete, do people hesitate on a protected left hand turn light? This could possibly be the number one thing that gets me cussing, as well as golf, bowling, putting things together...but by far possibly the worst. I mena, I don't get it, you know that you are in a turning lane, protected by a left turn only signal...why, oh why, do you then wait 5-10 seconds before you go? This is really annoying when the light itself last no longer than 15 seconds.....UGHHHHH!!!!

Smoking-Pepsi/Stupid loan decisions-Stupid credit card usage...the difference please?

People who smoke, and had been warned about its health risks, addictive nature, etc...can sue for millions. Now, here is my problem...I can't quit drinking Pepsi. I have tried and tried and tried. I love it, I love the smell, taste, and breathing in the burst of fresh Pepsi air out of a newly opened can, I admit it, I am addicted. I can't quit, and it is making me (or contributing) to my inability to lose weight..shouldn't I be entitled to millions?
The current mortgage crisis, sure some people may have been preyed upon by predatory lenders and real estate agents. But what is the difference of those people jumping into gigantic houses that they could not otherwise afford without the crazy ARM loans or interest only loan for a few years and me racking up a bunch of credit card debt to get things that I could not otherwise afford? Shouldn't there be some sort of goverment subsidized program for people like me? Come on Uncle Sam, aren't you going to bail me out for my stupid decisions?
Now, don't get me wrong. I accept full responsibility for my actions, I am simply pointing out some similarities between situations and wondering when will people be accoutnable for what they are doing? I mean come on, nobody is forcing me to buy that 32 oz Pepsi everyday and nobody is making me purchase that got to have item on credit. I am making those decisions, me, myself, I. I don't get it...

Probably will post pretty much as the title indicates...random thoughts etc...that I have about everything and nothing. Stay tuned for more.....
