1. Do public figures not understand everything they say and do is recorded/analyzed?
2. Bill O’Reilly, how you feeling about CBS releasing the video that proves you were lying?
3. Keith Olbermann, do you not learn from your mistakes? Think it’s time for your to retire from public life and take a vow of silence and swear off Twitter.
4. The Secretary of the Veterans Affairs Department lies about being in the special forces and he still has a job?

Dear God, what the hell kind of society are we living in? There was breaking news, a burning tanker truck in Pennsauken, which sent me to turn Channel 6 on to see if they were broadcasting and I happened upon The View. They were talking about boxer Floyd Mayweather’s history of domestic violence and how they (Whoopi and Rosie Perez were the two I heard talking about this) are okay with him because he “served his time” and “did what he was supposed to.”
I don’t follow boxing and I had no idea of this scumbag’s history of domestic violence. So I had to Google him, I just read this Dead Spin story about him and I’m appalled by the lack of any real punishment this monster has received. And my God, the women on The View are fine with this. I don’t watch The View but aren’t these women supposed to be a bastion of feminism and girl power?
The man is a professional boxer and the most jail time this man’s seen is 90 days for beating a woman. He punched her repeatedly in the back of the head.
Dear Reese Witherspoon, et. al, stop complaining about being asked about your dresses and address the danger of being a woman in this society. I stand absolutely astonished that a monster such as this one walks among society and is hailed a hero and a celebrity and that people like Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez are fine with him continuing to be a celebrity boxer. I’m astonished and appalled. I’m actually brokenhearted to know that my life and the lives of all women are apparently less valuable than boxing’s golden boy and those making money off of him. Unreal. I’m sick.
I challenge you to write a letter, a letter to anyone about anything. Letter writing is at an all time low and we are leaving nothing behind for historians to document our time on earth. You don’t have to come back here and tell me you wrote a letter, but I’ll be tickled pink if you do.
I’d challenge you to write a letter a week or a letter a month, but I’d settle for one letter in response to this challenge. And besides who doesn’t love receiving something in the mail other than bills or junk mail?
So you lovers out there get out your pens and write a love letter to your lover and you parents sit down and write your kids a letter. Tell them you love them, tell them the stories of the people who loved them before they existed, the people from who they came and the family stories passed down from generation to generation. Or write your best friend a letter. Tell them how much you love them and how much they mean to you or reminisce about the good old days. It really doesn’t matter to whom you write, just sit down, put pen to paper, and send the gift of your words, and your thoughts, and your stamp to someone.
