Anthony Weiner a Laughing Stock For Alarming Trend

DPAnthonyWeiner Unfortunately, for Congressman Anthony Weiner, his last name makes the latest scandal that much funnier. 

And in all honesty, while the scandal on Weiner sexting and having extra marital relationships via telephone and social media is another black eye on our society the whole situation has really evoked laughter from yours truly. 

Now, I understand what Weiner did is a serious issue. And quite frankly, my heart goes out to his wife, Huma Abedin, who is now pregnant with child. She is the one married to Weiner, and she is the one that is ultimately humiliated in this whole ordeal. 

However, while my seriousness begins and ends at genuine feelings for Weiner’s wife, the entire situation just flat out baffles me to the point of laughter. I understand we are now in an age of easy communicating access through Twitter, Facebook, and text messaging, but the whole idea of “sexting” and sending lewd pictures of one’s private parts just causes me to wonder – what’s the point?


Over the past few years, we have seen various men exposed for such pictures – most notably coming to mind Brett Favre and Sean Salisbury, former ESPN reporter, who was fired for sending a similar picture to a co-worker. 

And while sex in our culture has always been a topic that has brought out the worst in certain individuals, this “behavior” that is becoming a common trend is alarming. 

Yet, I still don’t see the point. 

Does one not think taking shirtless photos of themselves is odd? What goes through your head before you snap a photo of your genitals before sending it? 

Oh boy, this will really win her over!  

Whether Weiner should resign from his position is a debate I shockingly, have no opinion of. For we’ve seen politicians in the past have sex scandals and continue on in their office. Sadly, our society, myself included, is now desensitized to such stories. 

However, in a weird way, Weiner is in a sex scandal, without even having sex? 

Ok, that was the last one, I Promise. 

Oh, and yes, what Mr. Weiner did was in fact a case of infidelity. 

Nonetheless, while this is indeed quite funny, Weiner, and all of the men in America that partake in this cyber-relationship phenomenon, need to take a look at themselves in the mirror, and not take a shirtless picture of themselves, but realize how ridiculous it is. However most importantly, through all of the situations we’ve seen so far,  they must realize just how much damage something that seems so lustful without actual physical contact, can do to their lives.

WWE Survivor Series 2023 Review: "Whaddya Wanna Talk About?"

Well, following that premium live event, in the words of Cody Rhodes... "whaddya wanna talk about?"  The obvious is there, right? CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/26/23

3 Up 1. Hostages Released - It might not be an overwhelming consensus - as this topic is so polarizing that I doubt we come to such agreements. Regardless, having innocent individuals released is a plus in the situation. I wish we still didn't have innocent people dying, but that's a whole other topic.  1a. Cease Fire - Who knows how long this will last. But the fact there is an agreement in place while hostages are being released is a plus. Take it.  2. Thanksgiving - The older I get, the more this day has a deeper focus and a sense of gratitude. Please take a moment today to focus on that among all of the chaos of food, family, friends, and everything else.  3. CM Punk Return - How cool was that? CM Punk returns to the WWE at the Survivor Series. Never say never in that company.  3 Down 1. NBA Ethics Optics - From Miles Bridges to Josh Giddey, its been really difficult lately to trust the NBA's moral compass. I'm not throwing them under the bus as they've done the
