I Don’t Care (A Rant)

February 2, 2010

I don’t care about Tiger Woods’ sex life and marital problems.  Almost all major sports stars, and celebrities, have these problems.  I think the fame makes them think they are above reproach.

I don’t care about Michael Moore’s  opinion of Capitalism.  Or his opinion of anything else.

I don’t care how many extra-marital affairs or illegitimate children John Edwards has/had.  Politicians try to act like they are above us regular citizens, but they screw up just like the rest of us.

I don’t care for ‘reality TV’, which is no more real than some lazy TV producer’s fantasies.

I don’t care that Obama hasn’t “found a church” yet.  I don’t care if he ever does.  Why is this even news?

I don’t care about some Chinese woman having plastic surgery to look like a celebrity.

I don’t care what religious symbols  you put up on your property or business, if that’s what you believe.  If one person doesn’t like it, then he/she can just not look at it.

I don’t care if some groundhog in PA sees his shadow or not. Spring will be here when it gets here.

I don’t care who wore what at any awards show.

I don’t care about being politically correct. I’m sorry if someone is offended by what I say, but I still have my freedom of speech, at least for now.

I DO care about the increasing unemployment in this country.

I DO care about millions of foreigners coming into this country illegally and working without paying taxes to help contribute to the benefits they receive.

I DO care about countries hit with disasters. I do think we should help. I also think a little help for our own citizens who are suffering is in order.

I DO care about our military overseas. I have great respect for our soldiers and veterans.  My grandson is going to Iraq in a few days, and my dad was a veteran of WWII.

I DO care about the ever-growing deficit this country has. We should all learn Chinese because they own us.

I DO care about health care.  I work in the healthcare field.  I just wish Congress would get their heads out of their asses long enough to hear what the majority of the citizens want.

I DO care about the morals of this country going downhill rapidly.  Is everyone so selfish that they can’t help one another?  Does no one take marriage vows seriously anymore?

I DO care that the POTUS seems to be clueless about what being POTUS means.

I DO care that nobody reads the Constitution of the United States anymore.  Is it even still being taught in school?

I DO care that our children are being raised to be lazy, rude, selfish, and disrespectful of their elders.  If you don’t believe this, just spend some time in a mall.

I DO care about our senior citizens.  They have made numerous sacrifices for us, and deserve our respect.

My First Sex Scene (mature)

June 3, 2009

As soon as they entered the apartment, he took her into his arms and kissed her gently. The kissing continued, becoming more passionate as they pressed their bodies together. Breathing heavily, they moved toward the couch, unfastening each other’s clothing as they went.

He kissed her lips, cheek, and neck. She responded with soft moans as his lips moved down to her breasts. He sucked her nipples and her breathing became harder. Kissing down her stomach to her mound, his mouth found her clitoris and he kissed and licked until she began to squirm in excitement. He moved back to lay beside her and they explored each other’s bodies. She kissed him the way he had kissed her, working her way down his body. She kissed and licked his hard organ. When she wrapped her mouth around it, she heard him sigh. Encouraged, she began to suck in earnest, eliciting more pleasurable responses from him. He stopped her before he could climax.

When she was laying beside him again, he kissed her softly, his hands caressing her breasts. She could feel his erection as he moved himself between her legs. As he entered her, her breath caught in anticipation. He made love to her slowly, kissing and caressing her the whole time. She had never had anyone make love to her like he did. They climaxed together, holding each other tightly.

With arms and legs entangled, neither of them wanted to move. They lay without speaking, not wanting to break the spell of the moment. Both of them were lost in their thoughts.

All she could think of to say was, “I love you”, but this was not the time for that. She didn’t love him, just the way he had made her feel. She hadn’t known him long enough to be in love. All she knew about him was that he was a guitar player in the band that played at the bar she’d been to earlier. She thought he was incredibly sexy and downright gorgeous. He’d started a conversation with her before the band played, then during a break he’d asked her if she’d like to go out after they finished. She had agreed without even thinking about it. Even if she never saw him again, she felt it was worth it.

He lay there thinking this girl was one of the best fucks he had picked up in a long time. Most of the girls he’d had lately were either drunk or stoned. They talked too much and wanted it fast and rough. This girl was much quieter and liked the slow sex. He liked to go slow, get all the pleasure he could from it. He could tell she enjoyed it by the way she laid there smiling. He rarely slept with a girl more than once, but thought he might make an exception with this one.

She looked at him and smiled. He got up off the couch, took her hand, and led her to the bedroom.

Huffing: The Child Killer

March 7, 2009

Disguised as ordinary household products, a killer is stalking our children. These products are glue, fuels, correction fluid, markers, nail polish, spray paint and any aerosol spray. They can be harmless when used correctly, but deadly when “huffed” for a quick high.

Huffing is popular among adolescents for two main reasons: the products are easily obtained, and the effects don’t show up on drug tests. It is not illegal to purchase, or be in possession of, these common products.

The vapors from these chemicals can be inhaled, sniffed, or snorted from open containers, rags soaked in the chemical, and by spraying the aerosol inside the nose. Substances sprayed inside a bag are also inhaled.

The danger begins with the first time huffing is tried. As use continues, the risks are increased. Just some of the effects of huffing are loss of inhibition, hallucinations, depression, lack of coordination, and weight loss. The body’s vital organ systems – the brain, heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs – can suffer irreversible damage. Some of the serious effects huffing can have on a child are convulsions, coma, cardiac arrest, asphyxia, bone disease, and severe liver damage. Sudden death can result within minutes after huffing.

Some of the warning signs parents can look for:

Empty spray cans, rags, and plastic bags hidden in the child’s room or other places
A chemical smell on the child’s breath
Paint stains on the child’s clothes or face
Confusion, headaches, or slurred speech
Sores around the mouth and nose
Unexplained tiredness and weight loss
Irritability
Apathy

Prevention is better and easier than treating an addiction to inhalants. Talking to your child about the very serious effects of huffing is important. Inhalant abuse causes health problems that can be diagnosed as other disorders if the doctor has no idea that the patient has been huffing. Treating the symptoms of a wrong diagnosis while the user is continuing to use inhalants can be a deadly combination.

Recovery involves admission to an addiction treatment center that specializes in inhalant addiction. It requires a long-term, up to two years, treatment program to get all the chemicals out of the user’s body. Withdrawal symptoms – sweating, rapid pulse, hand tremors, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, hallucinations, and seizures – may last for several weeks.

The inhalants are easily available. You can’t keep your child away from them. Education on the very serious effects of inhalant abuse is the only intervention at this time. Maybe we can make huffing less appealing to our children.
