I wish that people who didn't know what they are talking about, would just shut the hell up!!!!

     Because false information is only the beginning of how rumors get spread. I found a conversation on a message board and wanted to post this for you. I only left their initials to protect the innocent, as well as the guilty. These posts right here, prove that when people don't know the correct information and they start spewing from their sewer traps, slanderous lies are spread all around hell's creation. It's unbelievable, but some people are actually like this.

(2***) who's here?? (in reply to 2***)

I hope you have facts and proof with which to back your assumptions regarding this man and his guilt C.J. It is reactions like these which send innocent people to prison or the gas chamber. Food for thought before you jump to conclusions. You may very well be right..... you may also be wrong.

     The reason why I've brought this here is to make a point.  If you read some of my other pages, it might seem almost obvious that I am a femi-nazi, man hater. That may be so to a point:), but I'll attack a woman for being a stupid ass too. Yes, the person on her little soapbox, raising hell was a woman (or a convincing man impersonating a woman), who did not know what she was talking about. She was just shooting off at the mouth, or should I say, typing fingers, because she was angry and didn't have a clue.  Plus, I personally think it's quite obvious that she's a few sandwiches shy of a picnic.  When this conversation took place, I was in Mexico, plus it was past my bedtime. I'm glad I missed it, because I would have wasted unnecessary energy telling her what I thought. Writing about this here, however, is not a waste of energy, because I write to express my feelings, plus I tend to be sarcastic, which is fun!:) 
 
     I take a personal hit to this gossip, because as I have written in my other pages, I come from a small town, where poverty stricken, white trash people who didn't know their assholes from their elbows, but swore they knew everything, ran the town!
 
     I get offended because my teenaged years were ruined by my mother who would gossip about her own children! Other mothers talked about me too and who in the hell were they? They had no college degrees or real jobs to where it required getting up off their lazy asses for more than two minutes. And to top it off, they were nothing but mere baby breeding machines!
 
     It doesn't take but an eighth grade education to get married and have kids. The Amish prove that one, time and time again. Some women think the answer to being successful is getting married.  That is not always so, and so many women I knew who were married with children were miserable, yet these bored, unhappy women would talk about me. They lie as well and don't know what the hell they are talking about, either.  Even to this day, when I visit my former hometown, people ask me where all of my children are because they heard I had three!  I only had one!!!!  I'm sorry if I found more interesting things to do with my life instead of spreading my legs and getting knocked up more than once! Sorry to sound blunt and ignorant, but it's an honest statement. I am aware that many people find family life a beautiful thing, but to others, that's all they know and they cannot comprehend a woman doing anything else. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy spending quality family time with my daughter and niece, but I won't lie, I'm too selfish.  I can think of so many other things to do with my time than having to change diapers or clean spit up. I would not want to go through that mess of doing it again! I'm glad those years are behind me!
 
     Some people in general (women and men), gossip terribly and rumors are never 100% true. Idle gossip keeps those tabloid newspapers like the Star or the National Enquirer in business.
 
     I do not waste my time reading that garbage.  The only thing those papers are good for, is wiping my ass with, but I'm not that poor to where I can't afford toilet paper.
 
     Unfortunately I have no choice but to glance at the cover page when I'm in line at the supermarket, because they are right there, in my eyes' view!
 
     I figure if you've seen one, you've seen them all because they only talk about certain subjects, that purposely lure bored, imbecilic women! I list their main cover stories and explain why these papers cater to stupid women who think they know everything, but don't know jackshit!
 
1.  Princess Diana- (Even though she's dead, they won't let that poor woman rest in peace! Isn't it every little girl's dream to be a royal princess? I guess that's why a lot of women loved reading articles about her! I liked Princess Di too, but not enough to buy the tabloid papers. I knew of a drag queen named, Lei Miona Davenport who would dress like her and he, I mean, she, looked very similar to her (on a good day:)).  A lot of women enjoy reading about Princess Di, because deep, down inside, they want to be young, beautiful, and of royalty. That's why these gossip magazines still write about her.)
 
2.  Princess Diana's family- (Hey, now that Diana's gone, they still have to keep her legend alive through her family.  Again, little girls love royalty.)
 
3. Bill Clinton- (Women need someone to hate.  Why not him?  Even though he's the former president and my former Commander-in-chief, he was also accused of adultery. Oh, what a bad man he was for cheating on his wife!!  Stupid women love to read about infidelity, because their own little worlds revolve around their own man and they wonder if their own man is being faithful to them. And they have to use Bill Clinton as an example of the"bad cheating man". If he does it, well I guess that means that ALL men must do it, because he was our president.- I'm being sarcastic here.)
 
4.  The Clinton family- (It revolves around Bill Clinton's affairs and how this affects Chelsea, "the poor little girl". Chelsea is an adult now, and can think for herself, thank you. Bill Clinton came from a poor family, and I feel that is the reason why those trashy papers love him so much, because their readers can relate to his former lower middle class background.)
 
5.  Celebrities (actors and pop stars)- (Almost all women love fame and fortune, myself included, but I could give a rat's ass about how a celebrity's home life is. Truth is, they all burp, fart, and shit, just like everybody else does!!!)
 
6.  JonBenet Ramsey- (A pretty name for a beautiful little girl, who was murdered, years ago.  I don't know who her killer was. I personally don't know the family, and I'm not a trained psychic who works for the Denver police department, so my opinions don't amount to a hill of beans anyway. Let the police do their job!!! Those gossip mags purposely keep bringing her name up, to sell their crappy newspaper.  They are using that poor deceased little girl to win over bored housewives and mothers, by aiming at them where it hurts. Almost every woman has maternal instincts and the writers of those trashy magazines know this.  They use that as an excuse to sell their lies and filth!
 
7.  OJ Simpson- (A wife beater and a murderer?  Let's give the women what they want!!!  They want to read about how he beat Nicole years prior to her stabbing, so they can compare it to the wife beaters they know and talk about. Chris Rock said the truth when he said that OJ was found innocent, not because of the color of his skin, but because he was rich.  Chris Rock stated, "If OJ was poor, he wouldn't have even been OJ." "He would have been Oranthal, the bus driving, murderer." My main concern out of all of this was the kids. I personally think her children deserve to be allowed to let their mother rest in peace. The tabloids bring it up to entice those battered women out there who insist on staying in their own war torn relationships. Some women really seem to like being victims to a possessive, jealous wife beater, for some seem to put up with that garbage for years, without really doing anything about it. A guy hit me once and my brother-in-law, Tom put him in the ER.  Funny, but it seemed that those type of men wanted nothing to do with me after that and stayed away.  I ended up having to move out of town to find a husband because no man wanted me there.  Hahahahaha!!  I am grateful to this day that Tom did that. Later in life I wished he would have been around to chase away the psychos.  If they would have grown up in my old hometown, they would have wanted NOTHING to do with me. You wouldn't be able to pay them enough money to want to hang around with me.:)  LOL!!!)
 
8.  Susan Smith-  (This story here, seemed to upset many.  I mean people who I thought were the worst parents in the world would not shut the hell up over this!!!  It was like they were trying to prove "Hey, we know we suck as parents and that's okay, but at least we're not murderers!!!" What Susan Smith did was horrible! I'm not saying otherwise, but this woman was tried, convicted, and put to death before her actual court date by many women.  It's funny how some women are so stupid, they can't even help their kids with their homework, yet when this trial was going on, it was like they were on jury duty or graduated from law school themselves and overnight became the police, the cross examining attorneys, the jury, the judge, and the executioner over this. The tabloids keep bringing her name up because again, they are flogging off their newspaper to idiot women by attacking their maternal instincts!! I had forgotten Andrea Yates' name, but she was the one who drowned her children.  I don't see much about her on the covers of those trashy papers. My guess is because she was just a nut who killed her children to protect them from Satan, "radical religion=insanity", but her story wasn't as juicy as Susan Smith who murdered her children for some man she was having an affair with. Adultery, marital stress, plus two beautiful boys who lost their lives= $$$, in their eyes.)  
 
9.  Amy Fisher- (Homewrecker at 16. In jail at 18.  The press ate that up. I personally have a problem with men who go after young girls anyway, so she was never my main concern.  He practically got away with being a pedophile, because people were more concerned over what happened to Mary Jo's face.  Buttafucco sounds like a rectal rash to me. So that name, alone, would have kept me away. The Enquirer and Star got really ridiculous with the stories after Amy Fisher was in prison, with their cover stories talking about her in prison love affair with a another woman prisoner or guard.  Hell, I don't even know or remember, except they were saying she was dyking out with some chick. They were trying to lure men this time into buying their crap, talking about x-rated lesbian prison romances. That issue was especially jerk-off material for the typical male chauvinist pig who's too unfortunate to get one woman, let alone two.  He would have been better off reading a Hustler.
 
10.  Reality based TV shows- (Oh yes, let's see, who's getting humiliated this week and kicked off the show.  I don't like reality based TV shows, because if you suck, they throw you off and if you are too good, you are a threat and they kick you off, which proves being only an average joe, mediocre bozo will get you far.  That's not how I was taught in the Marine Corps.  If you didn't always give 110%, you would hear about it. I find those shows humiliating to some and those tabloid paper writers get off writing about people getting humiliated and being kicked off.  It does appeal however, to both sexes, especially the younger generation. People enjoy watching others look like losers so they can feel better about themselves.)
 
11.  What's Hot and What's Not (Fashion)- (Most celebrities have money to wear whatever they like and they have designers who get paid to pick things that look suitable for them. I cannot understand for the life of me why some celebrities would wear things that are appalling or embarrasing.  They are the ones who hate those tabloid magazines the worst and want to sue them, yet they wear something hideous enough to where it attracts the wrong kind of attention. Nuff said.) 
 
12. No, I did not forget Lorena Bobbitt, although they don't say much about her or John anymore. I vicariously knew John Bobbitt and my one Sergeant talked about having to break up their domestic disputes in the base housing in Quantico. Once the press knew what an ass John Bobbitt really was, they came to the conclusion that he deserved what he got and realized that it was no longer worth talking about. Also, since most of the tabloid magazine purchasers are usually lower class housewives anyway, they found more interesting things to tantalize their feeble minds, like the Susan Smith ordeal.
 
 
 
     People should be more concerned with their own lives than those lives that are exposed by the media. As you have read in those message board posts, it's quite obvious that some people not only like to be the first ones who broadcasts information (whether if it's true or false), but they also think they have all the answers to how people in the media should live their lives.  I find that so amazing, especially coming from people who more than likely, fail in their own lives miserably, and everyday little tasks kicks their asses. Unbelievable!
