Crocker! Punk vs. Brown, Democrats vs. Republicans, and Ten Minutes of Shrim!

I wanted to just end my column at that this week.
It's been a good week, but a busy one. I've been out of town for a few days. I haven't gotten much sleep, and I just thought it would be funny to let that video do all of the talking for this week. But, I figured James would hunt me down in the backwoods of MO and choke me out. That is if he could fight his way through the army of zombie-like meth heads. That's right, folks. The numbers are out and once again Missouri is number one in meth!
We win. In fact the next county over from me is the biggest contributor. It's Winter's Bone around here people.
I guess we should talk about wrestling a little bit though. Speaking of choking people out, apparently Punk wants to choke out Chris Brown.
One is a professional wrestler, and while that is scripted, these guys are still tough as nails. The other is a pop star who likes to beat up really hot women. I think I'm betting on Punk on this one.
They are apparently in some sort of Twitter war, which is where all wars start now. It's a brave new world. Now if I was more cynical I would think this was a work. I mean WWE seems to be all about promoting themselves via Twitter these days. Nothing says excitement like the Rock and Cena calling each other poop heads in Tweets.
Anyway, Punk tweeted he wanted to beat up Brown because he beat up Rhianna and then showed up at the Grammies and even won. I don't blame him for this. Mean who hit a woman are shit on the bottom of shit pile.
You treat a woman like that like a queen!
But I don't know if calling him out on Twitter is that sincere. If it is, it might also be misplaced. You can go to CNN.com or whatever news site you read and it's full of people who have done horrible things against men, women, children, animals, entire countries, etc, and as far as I know Punk isn't threatening to beat any of them up. Plus if you want to talk about respecting women, which is very admirable, you might want to look in your own back yard.
Look, I get it. Wrestling is fake (though designed to seem real).
Still, I don't let my daughter watch it and there's a very good reason for that.
I don't know. It's almost as crazy as poor, white men (of which I am one) voting Republican and therefore voting against their own economic interest. Why do they vote Republican? Well, they'll give you a lot of answers, but what they are really saying is, "I vote Republican because I hate gay people."
This whole smaller government thing . . . is adding an amendment to the Constitution so that gay people can get married keeping government out of people's lives? Is that small government?
Plus, every damn person around here who wants to cut government spending (usually starting with education) is on some sort of government program. They don't realize their food stamps come from the government?
I don't know, folks. I'm bitter today. Please don't flame me too hard. Or do. I don't care. I don't get enough comments anyway.
That's it for me this week. I have to get some sleep.
