Tiger Woods has apologized to everyone but the garbage-collector and his dog.

But WHY?

No one was wronged in this besides his wife and family.  The mistresses don’t get to count – they knew he was married.

As for his marriage, he said: “Every one of these questions and answers is a matter between Elin and me, issues between a husband and wife.”

And so should your apologies.  The corporations which cancelled contracts with him, perhaps he should apologize for his conduct where it reflects badly on them.  But that is it.

No one else is entitled to an apology, an explanation, or even to know the facts.  He did nothing wrong besides to his wife.

And a big Boo-Hoo for the mistress/porn-actress:

Veronica Siwik-Daniels, one of Woods’ alleged mistresses and a former pornographic performer, watched the event with her attorney in a Los Angeles radio studio. She said she wants an apology for the unwanted attention the scandal has brought her.

“I really feel I deserve to look at him in person face to face in the eyes because I did not deserve this,” she said.

Ma’am, you cheated with a married man.  You are the last one to deserve an apology.  We should all live our lives such that if our actions were exposed to the light of day we’d have nothing to be ashamed of.  That you did not do, and it is your fault.

WTF?  PANDA porn???

At some point, shouldn’t animals be allowed to go extinct?  I’d think this was a pretty sure-fire sign.

Ah!  Home sweet home.  Sorta.   Maybe.  No, not really.

Man bulldozes home to keep bank from foreclosing on it.

Good for him.

Art-free weekend.  Bad pain days today and yesterday.  Plus the water pump to my well died tonight.  Yah-frickin’-hoo.  So I need to break from it.

Update: Not so art-free… see below.

This is pretty funny.  Ha.  Ha.  Ha.  A supposed champion of the party that is the champion (again, supposedly) of black folks everywhere, well… let’s just say he’s kind of an assh*le.  But we knew that already, didn’t we?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

Reid and his Clearly-I'm-Racist-But-I'm-Not-Racist talk caused this to come to me in a dream.

At least unlike 99% of the politicians out there, he knows how to make an apology that actually says “I apologize”.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans for my improper comments,” Reid said

Republican National Committee Chairman Steele didn’t much agree with Obama about it being a closed book.

Steele also accused Democrats of hypocrisy on the matter.

“There is this standard where Democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own. But if it comes from anyone else, it is racism,”

I watched Glenn Beck today.  Yes, the man has his faults but I still like him.  Today he had an audience and guests all across the spectrum of opinions and ideologies – black businessmen/women, polticians, ministers… even Mychal Massie (who totally rocks).

And they were having an honest discussion about race.  It was refreshing.  I find it funny to run across that kind of discussion not days after I lamented not seeing this sort of thing.

Some points made by the guests:

  1. Entitlement programs to poor minorities are racist.   Think about it.  If I convince a group of people that they need me, and I convince them that I am  providing for their need, then I have a great many hard-wired votes.
  2. Conservatives, not liberals, have been the champions of abolishing slavery and of forwarding civil rights.  It’s true. It’s in the history books.  Go read about it.
  3. Minority kids are singled out by their own peers when expressing an interest in learning and being successful.
  4. Democrats have been going on about how important minority education is yet they argue against vouchers for those same children to get out of the crap school systems they are stuck in.

Mychal Massie said that when he entered the studio building he didn’t come in as an African American, a black man, or anything other than himself, Mychal Massie.

A mayor stood up and said that he didn’t want to be known as a black mayor, he wanted to be known as a qualified person who was the mayor.

I bring it all up because they’ve been sore points with me for a while.  Kind of tired of the automatic assumption that the Democrats/liberals are the best thing ever for minorities and that the Republicans/conservatives automatically are oppressors.

Frankly, I find the Democrats’ willingness to tax me silly for the benefit of selected others is really not much more than veiled slavery.  Unless your tax money goes to everyone equally, or unless a law applies to everyone, or unless rights apply to everyone equally… then it is wrong, no matter what good intentions were at the heart of it.
