Teach Your Children Well (Babies In Sports Gear)



By now you know that our society is seriously what I would call "F***ed in the Head" and by that I mean not only do the Republicans repeatedly go to bat for the rights of porn stars to make millions tax free and use that money to pretend they're not porn stars, but people will also voluntarily fund the right of an admitted dog-electrocuter to make $100,000,000.

These people, mind you are not themselves millionaires; they're the (presumably) hard-working Philadelphians who do not earn $100,000,000 themselves; they just make it possible for Michael Vick to earn $100,000,000 by going and willingly giving their money to the team that employs him.

Aside from the fact that it's morally wrong for anyone to earn $100,000,000, it is especially inappropriate for a person who once electrocuted puppies to earn that kind of money -- let alone for our society to idolize him to the point where we cheer for him on Sundays, and, worse, where we encourage our kids to idolize him.

Michael Vick may have a right, in society, to go out and earn a living. He has no right to our respect, no right to earn $100,000,000, and no right to serve as a role model of any sort to our kids.

All of which is what makes the following so wrong:

What was in the Simpsons graphic? My monitor at work kind of sucks.

If we've learned anything though it's that the public will support you so long as you're a winner. Tiger Woods wins a few tourneys and everyone will forget about the infidelity. Vick has a decent year with the Eagles and everyone forgets he was a scum bag.

We're always so forgiving as a society, or maybe as humans. That's why guys like Nixon and Michael Jackson still get glowing eulogies when they die and everyone just tries to forget the bad stuff.

Moe is wearing a Vick jersey, which may be The Simpson's disapproving, since Moe is generally disreputable.

It's easier for me to forgive when the person demonstrates that they want to make up for what they did wrong. What has Vick done? Nothing. Apparently, the chance to win a Super Bowl is enough for fans to ignore anything. Makes you wonder: suppose OJ had been only 21 when he slashed those throats. Would he have been welcomed back? I bet he would've.

And, even if you view as morality-neutral, there's something so sick about cheering for this guy. It's worse than Roethlisberger; he wasn't found guilty of anything, after all.
