Headline News
Just Another Absurdity Of Life

            I was watching TV yesterday and the two biggest topics were Muammar Gaddafi and Charlie Sheen. They talked about them on the news, talk shows, comedy shows, and the newspapers have their faces plastered everywhere. Article's about the two men have names like Name That Nut and quiz's asking who said what, it's crazy!  It's Sheenafi mania! I couldn't stop  thinking about the odd pair. How do a Hollywood drug addict and a Libyan dictator vie for the headlines?   One is capable of mass destruction while the other self-destruction. I would think tyrannical dictator would trump drug addict any day. Has this country lost its priorities?
            I decided to take a closer look at the two men.

Charlie Sheen: has Tiger Blood and talks about warlocks. He thinks he’s invincible. Dying is for fools.
Muammar Gaddafi: “There is no state with a democracy except Libya on the whole planet.”

Well it seems they are both delusional.

Charlie Sheen said:” I will cut your head off, put it in a box, and send it to your mom." after his two boys were taken from his house after his ex wife filed a restraining order.
Gaddafi said: "We will never accept it. We will enter a bloody war and thousands and thousands of Libyans will die if the United States enters or NATO enters."

 Each has a hostile personality.

Gaddafi has a pistol packing posse of 50 women body guards sometimes referred to as the Amazon Guards and Sheen has his goddesses, the Porn star and the model.

Well they both love the ladies.

I know this has nothing to do with being a mom but as a person I never thought I would use the names Sheen and Gaddafi in one sentence, and I don’t think the media should give them the same degree of deliberation.


  1. Amen! I agree celebrity news and poltical dictators do not belong on the same page. We do seem to have our pritories a little mixed up in our country! Thanks for making me think!

  2. I agree--we do very much have our priorities out of whack in this country when it comes to what makes news and who we focus our attention on!

  3. That is too funny. I agree they are both delusional, and why are we giving them the time of day! Just wanted to say hello. I am one of your blogging buddies. Misti

  4. Hm...good point of view!

    I'm disappointed with ol' Charlie...of course I first fell in love with his bad boy character on Ferris Buellers Day Off!
