Pit Boss XL

Midgets and Pit Bulls.....WHY!?
I don't know how to feel about this show, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't entertaining. But, it does feel a little, mean spirited of me to laugh at the antics little people get into rescuing dogs. If you know me, you know that I don't like animals. I remember a YouTube video about the girl who put her roommate's cat in the oven as a joke- I know right, but the comments under the video and the person in the video commentating on her situation really upset me. Things like "OMG SHE DISSSSERVERS TO DIE!!11!" and "I should stuff that bitch in an oven see how she feels as I lol alnite" I couldn't help but reply, "Dude, it's just a fucking cat." Which lead to at least 12 PETA Nazis to attempt to flame me. I didn't care about animal rights before, and that just solidified my viewpoint of "Fuck animals"
Back on the subject of Pit Boss. The show stars the crew of Shortywood Productions/Shorty's rescue, Shorty Rossi, Ashley Brooks, Ronald Lee Clark and Sebastian Saraceno. The show takes place in the Greater Los Angeles area and it follows their normal work as well as their work rescuing pit bulls. It may seem like a great cause to a lot of people, and it probably is, but I'm bias so I find the inter office drama and odd jobs they do to be the best part of the show. I mean cmon, "little chippendales" 

hilarious. Would this show work with regular sized people? No. The only appeal of this show sadly, is the fact that they are little people, is it exploitation? I can't say. They enjoy doing it, moreover, they don't seem to mind being elves or dressing as little hamburgers (Well they mind but they still do it.) Plus it doesn't really paint a bad image of little people it shows them as hard working, sweet hearted caring people- sometimes. I'm reminded of an episode where shorty hired a normal sized woman(she didn't last long), about my height. Perhaps an inch shorter, and shorty had no trouble hiring her, but Ashley (The receptionist) said something that disturbed me a bit. It went something like "It's weird having an average in here, it's sort of like she's trying to take our spot." In a later episode she ,being a lesbian and all, mentioned something about heterosexuals, and I know we're the majority, but chill with the typecasting, we aren't all the same and we aren't all homophobic, we don't care if you buy your girlfriend a promise ring. My girlfriend bought us matching rings but she didn't go around saying "you know, a lot of homos would find this weird, me buying us rings" So she ticks me off a bit. But other than that, it's a pretty good show and a descent conversation starter. Well, I'm late for a dog fight- catch you later.

AT&T To Buy T-Mobile.

TL;DR: AT&T is set to buy T-Mobile for $39 Billion, this would bring the number of Nation Wide US Cell-Phone carriers from 4 to 3. Basically it would reduce competition and if you're a T-Mobile subscriber it will most likely raise your bill and encourage you to buy a more expensive phone or cancel your contract. Smh. 
Soon we're going to be the only one. MUAHAHAHHAHAHAA!
 I don't know anything about anti-trust laws and my knowledge of Bell is very limited, so if you do know more maybe you can correct me here. So to my understanding, a few years ago the FCC broke up the Bell corporation because it was basically, a monopoly, out of that came a few companies referred to as "Baby Bells" of those companies most were bought by the New AT&T and Verizon. That's it, out of the 7 or so companies these two bought basically, all of them the exception being 1 or 2. Now my personal experience with something like this. Around 2 years ago I was an Alltel wireless customer, compared to other plans it was nothing to really complain about, around $90 a month for unlimited text pics and video messaging, 2000 shared minutes, unlimited web and email. Then Verizon purchased Alltel and informed us they wouldn't support our Alltel plan after a certain date. So we had 2 options, upgrade to a Verizon plan or terminate our contract and pay a heavy fee. The plan we have now, is far less reasonable. 500 text messages, plus unlimited M2M to other Verizon customers, picture and video(premium) messages around 0.25 for each. 900 shared minutes, unlimited email and web for Blackberry*,(now it's a Palm), and Android.(There's no opting out you have to have an individual data plan for every smartphone on your plan.) This comes in at an average of $185 a month, over twice the cost of our old Alltel plan with a better network but half the features with many being mandatory for no good reason. 
 A quote from the richest man in the world, Carlos Slim, is possibly one of the greatest ones I ever come across. "When you live for others opinions, you are dead. I don't want to live thinking about how I'll be remembered." He's worth around $74 billion? The reason I bring this up is that his company owns around 90% of the home phones in Mexico, He crushed the competition and killed thousands of jobs,and his phone company is said to charge highest usage fees in the world. This probably won't happen seeing as we supposedly have laws against this kind of thing. I mean this is America right? There's no way one company could own an entire market, right?(Wrong)  Ok, fine. That doesn't even really count because radio has 3 mediums which it can broadcast, Airwaves, Satellite,and Internet. But this is where things get sketchy when it comes to phones, There are supposedly around 268 million landline phone subscribers in the United States, and of that, 140 million of those are Verizon. That is just, insane. This also raises the question, should corporations be allowed to control a large share of  a nations communications market? Well, I'm going to go buy a few walkie talkies, thanks for reading.

Redefining the N word.

"Nigga- (n) An individual who one may consider a friend, neighbor, classmate, etc." 
This seems to get lighter complexion human beings confused. I'll go on the record and say yes, you can use it. Keep in mind I don't speak for all Black people so just be careful. Personally, I don't see a problem with anyone using the word. Well there are obvious exceptions. The context has to be relevant. If you mean it in a hateful racist way, then you're just a lost cause and you should meet your maker soon. With that said, don't rush into it you have to proceed with ease. It's not really a cool thing to say in a professional environment, but if you're hanging out with your friends and someone calls and asked "whats up" feel free to repond "I'm just chillin with my niggas" just make sure you aren't the only white guy in the group. That could be kind of awkward. But hey if someone wants to hurt you over a word you meant no ill-feelings behind, they're insecure bastards.

Charlie Sheen Reform.

This is going to be a massively hate filled rant. I don't know where to begin other than to say, the system is fucked beyond belief. I repeat, F-U-C-K-E-D beyond belief. It's amazing, everyday there's a story on CNN or some other mainstream news network about stupid,useless, pointless, shit. I mean honestly, honestly, it's surfuckingreal. I don't give an ounce of a shit about the idiotic things a racist, 9-11 conspiracist, coke head cunt of a, for lack of a better word(no fuck that, he's a shallow womanizing, low life), actor. I'm not gonna go all "New world order" cause I don't believe that bullshit. But we all know why he makes headlines, it's a distraction. We could talk about the oil companies raising oil prices for no good reason but nah tiger blood is more important let's spend FUCKING 30 seconds on a spot talking about how high gas is. But Charlie Sheen? That fuck that he doesn't deserve that title which I'll get into soon enough. Let's give Charlie 2 fucking hours of our news program. I mean we have nothing better to talk about. Libya? Dirty Arabs who cares. Wisconsin getting fucked? No they don deserve too much coverage. Charlie Sheen called Jon Cryer a troll? OH FUCK YEAH! Dr.Drew talk about it! We need your celebrity rehab expert analyzation, plus we're giving you a show so let's plug that as much as possible. But by all means, it makes sense. Why don't they address who pays our congressmen and our senators, because the same fucks that buy our politicians provide our media. This isn't even a crackpot theory it's a fucking fact. What's the best way to get a return on your money? Buy the politicians. How else can you get a $300 million return on a $2 million investment? Only thing is that investment is also known as a "campaign contribution" you know what it is, we all fucking know what it is. It's a bribe. I mean think about it. Your average senator only gets under 200k a year from us. But it's fine I mean who can live on only $174,000 a year. It's inhuman. How can we possibly expect our senators to be middle class. If you didn't get the sarcasm there, I'm sorry. You know what happens after a senator does a company's bidding for a few years? He gets a job, usually with a multi-million dollar salary with the company he helped by, you know, voting down some useless bill that would help the lower income families, pfft fuck em. Some bill that would have given his bosses more regulation so they couldn't basically scam possibly even poison the American people. The EPA? Yeah we don't need them making sure companies are on the up and up. The worse the fucking worse and this takes the fucking cake. Our weapons companies would lose a lot of money if we didn't give the military shit they openly said they don't need. Blasphemy! We need to spend millions maintaining submarines we never use. The nerve of you to fucking think other wise. We don't need a smarter population let's keep them stupid so we can rob them fucking blind. The greatest investment ever. Billions individually trillions as a whole. Big business successfully robbed every single one of us blind. This is possibly the greatest heist, ever. We NEED campaign finance reform if we don't this bullshit will never stop and our nation will be no more. The United States of America. A subdivision of Boeing. See you in the fields my niggas. $0.29 an hour working the fields of our supreme banking overlords. You can live with that right? Right?
