Wisdom: Problem with girls

Popular, but crap

Right-wing radio is a success for the same reason porn, drugs, “Baywatch,” Cheetos, Wal-Mart, and the WWF are incredibly successful ” crap sells.

I don’t have a problem with that, but I do have a problem with right-wing radio passing itself off as actual news and views from intelligent people. The viewpoint that says, “well, if it sells, it must be good,” only goes so far. It’s entertainment, pure and simple, and it’s successful because anything that gets a rise out of people will attract attention and sell, whether it’s the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” or Bill O’Reilly.


Girl presidents

When we fail to educate our daughters we limit their options. And frankly, popular culture isn’t doing us any favors. As the female vocalist Pink sings in her Grammy nominated song, “Stupid Girls;” “What happened to the dream of a girl president, she’s dancing in the video next to 50 Cent.”

For the record: I am voting for Senator Clinton of New York. My choice is based on her record of leadership and achievement, and frankly, her gender. It is about time the majority took the reins of government.


Better negotiators

A very large portion of the salary difference between the sexes can be explained by the fact that in general woman accept an initial job offer while men negotiate for higher salaries.


Culpable kids

This is all about accountability. If your kids break the law, and they are reprimanded by the police for breaking the law, then the police deserve a thank you. These parents who think their children are angels need a wake-up call. Get your kid to comply with the law and all of a sudden the “problem” of the kid being held accountable for breaking the law goes away! Furthermore, it’s a citizen’s obligation to know the law, not the government’s obligation to post signs everywhere to make sure that citizens are informed.


Better negotiators

This Knipmeyer guy is a poster child for the advocacy of irresponsible behavior. Let’s entice these novice motorcycle riders with alcohol. Brilliant.


Pine beetle fight

I just hope this is not too little, too late and that the money is not lost on red tape and fraud. Homeowners should start contacting contractors to remove dead trees right away.
