Bootie or Bloody?

I'm not a big watcher of Network Drama TV series; it's just not my cup of tea. I prefer movies, Public affairs and Documentaries.

My family was watching "CSI" last week and one of the scenes featured the characters doing an autopsy. The "victim" was laid out on a table, his chest was completely cut open, ribs spread apart, and the medical examiner was cutting organs out to examine them. This was pretty grisly stuff - tight closeups of entrails being cut apart, incisions through skin, and for the climax, he he grabs a small rotary saw and begins cutting away bones.

As an old "Night of the Living Dead" horror movie fan, the gore doesn't bother me. After all, we know it's just done with latex, glycerin, red food coloring and bad lighting. But my wife had her hands over her eyes and said "let me know when it's over."

Then I found myself thinking back to the last Superbowl halftime show where Janet Jackson's partially nude breast was exposed. The public reaction was overwhelming.

Herein lies the problem, (for me anyhow): In our society, violence and gore are tolerated. In fact, violence and gore is good. Sex is still taboo. Oh, we all talk about it, we all are interested in it, but for the sake of political correctness, we have to pretend that the human body is some offensive entity that needs to be covered up.

The biggest argument I heard about the Superbowl broadcast was that "there were children watching. No body warned us so we could protect the children."

Protect the children? From breasts? They're watching a one hour sporting event where the goal is for the guys in Red to pummel the living daylights out of the guys in Blue so they can't carry the ball another 10 yards. Football teaches our children that violence is an acceptable method to achieve your purpose. That's supposed to be a positive message for impressionable minds? Now lets team that message up with the sex taboo. "Violence is Good and the human body is bad."

Now, let's talk about the total hypocrisy of the "Offensive body." In our part of the country, we celebrate a season of the year called "Summer." One of things we New Jerseyans do is go "swimming." That consists of putting on an article of clothing called a "bathing suit."

If you look like me, you put on a very large bathing suit, designed to save the public the hardship of having to look at too much of your body. However, I have noticed that many people, usually females, tend to wear these "bathing suits" that are constructed from straps instead of clothing. If you're not getting my drift, I'm saying that women's bathing suits expose as much, if not more, of their bodies than Janet Jackson treated us to at the Super bowl.

I don't have a problem with women's bathing suits and I don't have a problem with Janet Jackson. I don't even mind the gore and violence. After all, this is TV - it's not truth, it's entertainment.

If your idea of being entertained is watching some guy cut a corpse's heart out, more power to you - now CSI has 3 "different" shows, and all three are in the Nielsen's top ten list (at least this week), so you can get your gore three times a week.

If your idea of entertainment is catching a glimpse at a woman's skin, then bless you too.

Personally, I think getting your jollies looking at beauty ON THE OUTSIDE makes more sense than getting your jollies looking at the "beauty" ON THE INSIDE. I'd rather have you look at my exterior then cutting me open with a rotary saw to see what's underneath myskin. But that's just my opinion.

What really bothers me about this whole rant, is that too many Americans get bent out of shape over the skin.

Why is it that a person can walk around in public in a short sleeve shirt showing off their elbows, but not their breasts? Who decided that Breasts are Bad and Elbows are Good?

How come a man can take off his shirt in public and it's OK, but not a woman? Is there something wrong with a woman's breasts?

If a flabby man with large breasts takes off his shirt, is he being obscene? Is this an issue with the exposers' gender, or is it an issue with the size of their pectorals?

How come it's OK for a woman to wear a tiny bikini on the beach that exposes 90% of her breasts, as long as the nipple is covered, but if she lets her nipple show, it's obscene? Is it the nipple that's that obscene part?

And why is it OK to look at a painting of a naked woman in an art museum? Isn't it a good idea to take children to art museum's so they can become cultured and educated? But isn't that the reason why CBS and it's affilites were fined over half a million dollars - for "allowing" a partially undressed woman to be shown on TV?

The double standards and hypocracy of the violence and sex issues drive me nuts. Hey folks - there's nothing wrong with your body. Your kids won't go insane if they see a flash of skin. I'm more worried about children being exposed to too much violence. I think it'd be a better world if kids grew up thinking more about how nice skin looks, than about violently tearing it apart.

In our country, we're becoming totally desensitized to the horrors of violence. It's like the good ole days with the hero packing a six shooter at his side, wiping out evil with impunity. No wonder half the country thinks it's a good idea that we're at war in Iraq!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
