Wal-Mart is Evil!

Just when you think Wal-Mart's PR problems are under control, it goes out and fucks them up again. This time, when one of their employees suffered brain damage in a car accident, they decided to sue her to recoup the cost of her medical bills. Isn't that insane?

I thought the whole insurance business model relied on sucking up premiums and investing them so when you do have to pay out money, it's not that big of a deal. You're not supposed to sue the person to get your money back!

This poor woman not only is brain damaged, but her 18 year old son died in Iraq recently. On top of that, her husband divorced her. He divorced her not because he doesn't love her, but so she could qualify for medicaid. Isn't that insane??

Granted, there was fine print in Wal-Mart's health insurance policy saying that "the company has the right to recoup medical expenses if an employee collects damages in a lawsuit." Even still, I think that's a whack policy. Insurance is there to protect your employees, not ass-rape them in case bad shit happens.

Once again, Wal-Mart acts like a complete jackass. When will they get their shit together and stop being insane!

"Unhitched" Sucks

Fox's new show, "Unhitched", is just horrible. I just don't understand who would think the show is funny? The premise isn't anything all that brilliant and the plot lines of the show are just stupid. It's the kind of 'stupid' that is humorous to beer-guzzling community college graduates.

It's really annoying that the show is slotted between The Simpsons and Family Guy, which means a few things...

1) I sometimes find myself sitting there and watching it as I'm done with The Simpsons and wait for Family Guy to come on, and

2) Its ratings are probably inflated because other people are doing the same thing -- watching it even though they don't want to.

Will someone just cancel the show and replace it with something that doesn't suck?

The Return of Jezebel James

Because I'm a fat girl, I stay home on Friday nights. Luckily for me, this allowed me to catch Parker Posey's new show, The Return of Jezebel James.

Ok, kinda stupid title and the commercials didn't make it seem that great. But once I started watching it, I remembered why I love Parker Posey. She's hilarious!

The show is actually pretty good. Not good enough to watch every Friday, though, which means that unfortunately unless FOX moves it to a different night, the show will be canceled mid-season. So enjoy it while it lasts!



The only thing I find annoying is the same with all shows that take place in New York. It's fraught with inaccuracies. I won't go into how in Episode 2, her apartment is gigantic and would cost at least $8 million if it were real. I guess that's just the magic of television.

Desperate Times...

Bear Stearns just sold itself to JPMorgan Chase for $236.2 million, which translates to a pathetic $2 per share. Holy shit!! As of Friday, Bear's stock was trading at $30 a share. Damn!! This subprime mortgage drama is a bitch!

So you know the world is in complete financial disaster when one of the largest I-banks gets bought out for a fraction of its market cap, with the Government assisting via special financing.

Now, I assume there'll be some layoffs and whatnot, since it's already happening at other banks. And not to capitalize on the misfortune of others, but I'm still waiting for the New York housing market to drop because I'm tired of renting. Maybe this will push that process along :)

Yay Ellen! Boo Sally Kern!

Ok, Ellen's been workin it out lately. See, these are the benefits of being an "out" actor! You can actually speak up and make a difference. Hello.

This is her reaction to Sally Kern's crazy speech... if you haven't seen it already.



And I love Wanda Sykes. She cracks my shit up.

Crazy Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern

It always scares me when crazy people get elected to public office. It means at least two things:

1) The people who voted for the official really shouldn't be allowed to vote, and

2) Crazy has a microphone

This can just be summed up in one phrase: "Stupid is as stupid does". Either way, it means the system has broken down and democracy (or demoCRAZY) is in jeopardy.

The latest flare of Crazy in the fireworks of our nation is Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern. Now that her anti-gay speech is all over the internet, I wonder how long it'll be until she resigns.

I'm not going to dissect her speech and provide commentary. Honestly, every breath is just a little piece of insanity, so what's the point. Besides, it's more impactful if you formulate your own opinion.

Honestly, I think this woman just needs to be touched. She needs to stop sipping the Haterade so she can spend more time getting laid. People who have sex don't have time to hate on other people -- they're too busy having sex and being happy. That's what she needs... a good strap-on up her cooch.

In case you feel like reaching out and getting in touch with her...

Look Book - Two Little Faglings

Because I love New York Magazine's "Look Book" so much, I've decided to pay homage to it the only way I know how -- by criticizing the hell out of it.

The February 11th Look Book features two little student faglings, Steven Gutierrez and Anthony James in their over-the-top, cliche outfits du jour.

I actually don't mind the outfits at all, particularly if they were worn by women instead of little boys, but it's more the content of their interview that irks me.

Aside from the fact that, based on the way they respond, they are clearly New York neophytes, the one -- Steven in particular -- is just a typical faggot, sugar daddy and all:

Where did you get your outfits?
STEVEN: All over, but my boyfriend got me the bag. I think he got it on Fifth Avenue.

Is he into fashion?
STEVEN: He’s very Ralph Lauren. He’s more like a gentleman kind of type. He’s very country club. He’s a golf instructor somewhere. Orlando, maybe? I don’t know. I don’t talk to him much about it.


Fifth Avenue is kind of a big stretch of street. Maybe he could just open his purse and read the label, then he'd know where the bag came from. Just a thought.

My heart is always warmed when I hear of the loving relationship between a "gentleman kind of type" who gives "somewhere from Fifth Avenue" bags to their young student boyfriends who don't really know that much about him. I guess it's hard to really know your sugar daddy boyfriend when you're in New York and he's in "Orlando, maybe?"

Just when you think it's safe to frolic about, a 15yo kid (Lawrence King) gets killed by a 14yo kid (Brandon McInerney) because he's gay. And it happened outside LA. What kind of madness is this?

Gay murders in Blue states is unacceptable. Ok, gay murders anywhere are unacceptable, but still. The fact that he was shot in the head by the 14yo just blows my mind (no pun intended). Where are all these kids getting their guns from?? More importantly, HOW are these kids getting guns?? I couldn't get a gun if I tried. OK, I could just go to Wal*Mart and purchase one. I guess that's the problem.

In true gay fashion, a march was organized for Larry. Ellen mentioned it on her show. People are mentioning it on their blogs. And already there are a ton of "Remembering Lawrence" videos posted on YouTube.



So hopefully with all this press, something will change for the better. But why does it always take someone dying for change to come about?
