It’s my MARKet, so I’m gonna Share…..Happy Birthday America. Instead of a new travel mug or a nice picture frame to thank you for our freedom, some of those elected to government positions decided to honor you by declaring their independence of their self respect and their clothes (Congressman Anthony Weiner) and their sobriety and sense of law (Idaho State Senator John McGee). As a bonus, comedian Tracy Morgan is having his freedom of speech questioned by those who have declared independence from their sense of humor. So happy birthday America. Hopefully next year we’ll just get you a card…I find those commercials for Audi’s “pre-owned” cars creepy. These are the ones where the future owner of the vehicle approaches the current owner and tells them how to keep the car clean. No thank you. I don’t want a stranger approaching me about anything about my car, especially someone who already has my car picked out as their new vehicle……I can not tell you how excited I am that Fear Factor is coming back. Add to that Burn Notice just started their new season, Sons of Anarchy will be running again soon and all of a sudden, TV looks pretty darn good………I’m thinking of taking a new job. I and my co-workers can vote for raises of our already higher than average salaries whenever we want to, I’ll have lifetime health insurance for free, a pension plan I don’t have to contribute to that is higher than average, free parking at major airports for life and I am given a multi-million dollar budget for my office. Sounds good, right? The job in question? Congressman. And all of those perks are absolutely true and you and I as taxpayers foot the bill. Must be nice…I really feel that the defense in the Casey Anthony trial is taking the tact of throwing everything up against the wall to see what sticks. Her dad molested her, the meter reader really found the body, her daughter drowned. If it was me, and I was wrongly accused of killing my kid, you couldn’t keep me off the stand, as nobody would be able to defend me better than me. However, I don’t think we will be hearing from Casey the party girl in her own defense……Oprah announced she wants to interview OJ Simpson, but only if he will confess to the murders. We already know he did the murders. How about instead she just get him to admit his movies stunk and he’s a lousy actor……Rumor has it David Bowie will be doing a farewell tour in 2012. Not to discount his place in rock music history, but I don’t think there is anyone under the age of 50 who even knows who he is anymore…Speaking of music, terrible to read of the death of Clarence Clemons. He made the saxophone cool for rock and roll, was an awesome side-man to Bruce and the world of music will miss him. R.I.P. Big Man……How ridiculous is the justice system in California when Lindsey Lohan goes to court for an alleged parole violation and the worst the judge does is tell her she can’t have anymore parties? I guess being a celebrity means never having to go to jail unless you actually kill someone. Oh, wait a sec, that's not true either…As for celebrity train wrecks this month, we have a good one. NBC journalist Chris Hansen, he of the “gotcha” series of “To Catch a Predator” reports, was himself gotcha’ed. Seems the National Enquirer caught him with a woman who wasn’t his wife. If you make your career out of the concept of catching people when their pants are down, you ought to be sure that yours are always up……To help promote the latest Transformers movie, Shia LaBeouf has revealed that he had sex with former co-star Megan Fox. As she isn’t even in this sequel, I’m thinking this is just coming across as bragging……OK, I’ve shared. Now it’s your turn. Agree? Disagree? Have at it. See you next month.
