eye of the media
A cranky opinion for
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man with little knowledge of the subject opined.Opposing views are welcome, but are
wrong.As always, please, no name
calling, and that means you, you big stupid head!
apparently used drugs to date rape women.Because of his wealth, power and public persona, it took years for women
to step forward and accuse him of being the despicable abuser that he
apparently is.I didn’t believe it at first;
I had been a big Cosby fan since his first comedy album.He has somehow avoided any repercussions for
Jackson had an unhealthy affinity for young boys.Several accused him of sexual abuse and he
paid several off to say nothing. Because of his wealth, power, and public
persona, it took years before his perversion saw the light of day, and many
still refuse to accept it.He was never
taken to task for his child abuse.When he
passed away, the world mourned.
has been accused of several rapes, and of intimidating his victims to keep them
silent.Because of his wealth, power,
public persona, and political expediency he has never been held accountable,
and is in fact a darling of the woman’s rights movement.He admitted to taking sexual advantage of a
young intern.If he was a CEO of a major
corporation he would have been dismissed.Instead he had his wrist slapped and he showed zero remorse.*
Clinton knew of her husband’s brutality and predilection for sexual abuse.Because of his wealth, power, public persona,
and political expediency she has remained silent and has not been held
accountable for her silence or her hand in stemming the accusations through
intimidation and slander.**
took advantage of his seventeen year old adopted daughter, even married her,
and has been accused of inappropriate behavior with others.Because of his wealth, power and public
persona, he is still a respected movie writer, producer and director.
OJ Simpson almost
decapitated two people, but he was wealthy, famous, and charming, so he was
judged not guilty regardless of overwhelming evidence along with his threat of
suicide and attempted escape.
Kardashian and Paris Hilton among others were made famous and established
careers after releasing sex tapes on the internet.They have throngs of supporters.They are also children of privilege.They are judged with different standards.
Herman is a seemingly harmless and a fairly talented actor/comedian who was
caught diddling himself in an XXX movie theater.His career was basically ruined for years
because he was not wealthy enough, or powerful enough to have the charges
buried.He was just famous enough to
have this indiscretion made public.I do
not condone his behavior, but it was an XXX movie…DUH!I’ll wager there are still people doing the
same thing today in their own homes who go to work the next morning and do not
have their career ruined.
is wealthy and liked by many, but there are also many who resent her for her “prissy,
proper, blue nose” persona and when she was caught for a minor Wall Street
indiscretion which saved her almost $80,000 she was sent to jail for insider
Winfrey is wealthy, talented, adored by millions and feared by many because of
her media power.Oprah bought ten
percent of Weight Watchers stock and on the next day announced that she had given the company the right to use her name, image,
likeness and endorsement for the company. I'm not a lawyer, but that sounds like insider trading to me. Oprah made over 60 million dollars in one day; apparently if you are Oprah that is perfectly legal. I know if I had sold stock in Weight Watchers to Oprah I would be pissed.
if you are wealthy, talented, or charming or if the world just likes you, you
can get away with almost anything.If
you are not wealthy, have no power or are unlikable you better watch your step.
The preceding was the opinion of a
cranky old man and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
Oprah, if by
some crazy reason you read this, I was only kidding. *Try as I might to feel differently, I still kinda like President Clinton. **I have no trouble not liking Hillary, she s not as charming as Bill.
