KEVIN WARE

You’re not gonna like what you are going to read and I know that already but it’s the truth.  Kevin Ware of Louisville suffered a horrific broken leg in yesterdays college basketball game.  His lower leg broke in half and the bone actually pierced the skin.  People across the country have actually tweeted their monetary support to a man that they don’t even know.  Seriously?  Let’s be honest.  The guy didn’t die…. he broke his freaking leg.  He doesn’t have a life threatening disease and he didn’t lose a loved one.  He broke his leg.

When you walk on a sporting field of any kind under you own free will you understand that you are taking a risk of physical injury.  Don’t get me wrong I wish he didn’t break his leg BUT he knew was putting himself at risk.  His teammates and his coach were visibly upset and some were even crying.  Would they have reacted the same way had they not SEEN the injury?  If Kevin Ware fell down the stairs at his dorm and suffered the same injury would they break down in tears upon hearing the news?  I think not.  They walked away in tears because they had witnessed a HORRIFIC injury and that’s actually kind of selfish.

As far as these clowns that want to send money to help out a guy they don’t even know here’s a suggestion for ya:  Look around you.  There are many local organizations that can use your help in fighting abuse of animals, domestic violence, hunger, poverty or your favorite cause.  Visit a relative you have not seen lately or take the time to reestablish a connection with a lost friend.  If any of these things would happen then I think Kevin Ware would appreciate that more than anything else.  Kevin Ware broke his leg.  He wasn’t killed by a drunk driver.  Let’s keep this in perspective.

These are trying times.  The upcoming 2012 election may be one of the most important  in the history of our nation.  So what the HELL was Governor Rick Perry thinking when he showed up hammered last Friday night at a fund-raiser?  Check out the video HERE.

We all screw up but this guy actually thought he could fake his way through the speech.  He looked like Richard Dawson the host of the old Family Feud.  Dawson would get so hammered during tapings that he practically was sticking his tongue down the trachea of every female contestant on the show.  I’m surprised Perry didn’t stop in the middle of his speech and say “100 people surveyed..top three answers on the board…’What does my breath smell like?’  SHOW ME SCOTCH!”

You know his “people” told him “Don’t go out there yet, Rick.”  But noooooooo!  I imagine he said “Look.  I’m the Governor already.  I’m a front-runner for the GOP nomination.  No ones gonna tell this cowboy when he’s gonna ride!”  I feel sorry for the staff member he said this to because I am sure that person was sandblasted by his septic saliva.  You can feel the tension in the room based on the nervous laughter.  Its like being at a charity fund-raiser.  If you donate a ton of money you could dry-hump the chandelier in the ballroom and people would say you were being “clever.”

Take the show business out of politics.  Imagine if the Governor said this; “Wow! I’m pretty bombed.  I’m gonna sit down before I make a real ass out of myself.  Don’t drink and drive.”  MADD loves ya.  Ya get to run back to the bar and top off and you just injected HONESTY into the campaign!  I’ll tell ya this much; if they ever bring beer pong into the debates I know who my money is on!
