Everytime I watch the news ...

... my point is proven. There are a lot of dumb ass people walking this planet.
This morning while I was getting dressed, I turned to CNN's Headline News to see my girl Robin Meade because, well, I do every morning. She wakes me up without being too bubbly.
So, while I'm pulling my shirt over my head, I hear that Sharon Stone says that China has bad karma and that's why 68,000 people died in the May 12 earthquake.
"They're not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a friend of mine. And then all of this earthquake and all this happened and I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice, that bad things happen to you?" Stone said on camera at the Cannes Film Festival. Hmmmm, karma, what a concept.
Mirriam-Webster's dictionary defines karma as, "the force generated by a person's actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism to perpetuate transmigration and in its ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person's next existence." This is all a fancy way of saying, 'what goes around, comes around."
I'm a firm believer in that philosophy, but dang, 68,000 people dying in a natural disaster? That's not karma, pardon me, but that is God's will. To say that the earthquake is bad karma because of the way the Dali Lama has been treated would imply that the folks in middle America have screwed somebody over too because they are being slammed by tornadoes. It would also imply that the people on the Gulf Coast screwed somebody too because they're still picking up the pieces from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
She needs to watch herself when she says stuff like that because as Karamu from the Philadelphia season of "The Real World" pointed out, "Karma is a bitch," and I'm guessing she's about to get Karma's foot up her butt!
I know I'm a little late, but I don't think I've addressed "The Cannons." I put that in quotes because, well, who really believes that they're married for "love?" OK, maybe they do love each other, in a nice Christian way, but I don't think they've consumated their marriage. At least I hope they haven't. And, these crazy people are talking about reproducing - with each other.
Umph, umph, umph!!! All I got to say is "God bless the child" that has two crazy people for parents. This whole situation is just waiting for a segment on Oprah and then Dr. Phil. You gotta do the "blissfully, geeky beginnings" and then the "horrible, bitter end."
Personally, I can't wait for Dr. Phil to scream "You guys are idiots" in that Texas Redneck drawl of his.

LMBAO on the Cannons. He just seems like such an opportunist--in every picture it's like he's thinking, "Yeah, someone wants to photograph me."

LOL. I was thinking that he looked like he was trying to control his explosive diarrhea in this pic. I think the song going on in his head is, "nausea, heart burn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea, YAY PEP-TO BIS-MOL!!!"
