“good” guys gone bad…

we’ve been all over the news recently…and by we, i mean they…you know the cats that seem to have it all but are willing to throw it away for old school hispanny (hispanic nanny) booty…ahem gov. schrwarzenegger…or a chance to use the ‘where’s my wiener’ app on his not so smart phone…

what makes a man with so much to lose seem so eager to lose it…i believe that scientist would call it stupidity, however i feel there is more than just a malfunctioning noodle loaf at play here…

what further complicates things, is that it’s not all men of power…when you examine the love lives of derek jeter and tom brady whom have run through hollywood like the juggernaut through…well…pretty much anything…yet have somehow never ended up sitting behind the “i’m stupid” microphone at the “i’ve embarrassed my family and my organization” press conference…

so if it’s not stupidity, then what else could cause these societal icons to engage in such risky foolishness…i thought you’d never ask…oh you didn’t…well listen anyway…

the rules have never applied to them…some of these cats have never heard the word ‘no’…kinda like i’ve never heard the words “can my cute friend that’s join in as well”…i would imagine, the first time they hear it, they don’t necessarily know what the next step is suppose to be…so they just continue to ease on down that yellow brick road to the wizard of indictments…

they’re convinced that money solves everything…as kobe so eloquently stated to the eagle rock police department…”shaq usually pays people to make stuff like this go away”…nothing injects a would be victim with amnesia better than a few well placed brief cases filled with founding fathers…once these guys realize that one call to their accountant can erase all wrongs, they start writing up wrongs like a disobedient fourth grader at ms. so-n-so’s detention chalk board…

those darned enablers (more commonly known as groupies)…these are the ones that told him it was ok to do whatever it is that you are currently telling him not to…for some reason, self-worth is not distributed equally…now i don’t know if you got too much or if the chicks with the gold picks got too little, but i do know that the rappers, ballers and politicians are having a difficult time telling y’all apart…the obvious solution to this problem would be to walk around with your self-esteem score tatted on your forehead…that way, all of the guys in question would know whether or not that forehead was available for target practice…*pulls “i’m stupid” microphone closer* “with that last line, i have embarrassed my family and my organization and i am deeply apologetic”…

ok, maybe it is just stupidity…i mean, how else can you explain a perennial pro bowl nfl quarterback doing anything that halfway resembled sexual assault…twice like ben roethlisberger…now i must admit…i’ve never had my own groupies ( i shook my engineering degree and this new mba diploma to make sure) but i have seen these bottle rats in action..and it seems that it shouldn’t be that difficult to determine who’s throwing it at you and who’s kneeing you in the jewels to keep you from touch it…

obviously none of these actually excuse the behaviors in question, but i do believe these may explain most of the stupidity…but i could be wrong…and that’s why we have ye legion of faithful readers…do speak…

elrock…i can’t wait til i get rich…

    Hmmm, this may not be popular opinion, but I’m always weary of the “groupie/whore/enabler”
    excuse. No woman, or person, for that matter, is under any moral obligation to police the ethical behavior of others (besides their own children). I also take exception to “…these are the ones that told him it was ok to do whatever it is that you are currently telling him not to…for some reason, self-worth is not distributed equally.” First, a man does not need permission or encouragement from a woman to behave badly. That decision is always firstly and lastly with him (regardless of how large said woman’s breasts are). And second, a woman’s choice to sleep with a man who is tethered is no indication of her self-worth. If the sex is not in exchange for cash or goods, in what way does a woman (who is not herself tethered) diminish her self-worth by *consenting* to sex with a willing participant (regardless of *his* marital status)?

    All the other reasons make sense i guess, but I would argue that this behavior is not endemic to men in power.

    • yeah my list was paper mache’d together utilizing only poor excuses and not viable reasons…dumb is dumb in my book…and when stupidity is in the house, moral obligations and ethical behavior tend to come up missing…so there’s no real disagreement there…

      i do believe that a number of these cats do act like bratty rich kids that have grown so use to getting their way, that the word ‘no’ no longer resides in their vocabulary…once again, this is no excuse for bad behavior but we all know it happens…

      however, i do believe that a groupie (defined as someone that shares ta-tas for trinkets) is not at all working with the same self worth as someone who has come to understand that no combination of trinkets could ever equal the value of the love pie…there has to be a difference between someone who says i’ll sell this to you for $150 and someone who says i’ll exchange it for your heart…besides the fact that one of them is probably not going to get paid in full…

      and we all need permission to behave badly…the issue is, all bad behavior diagrams aren’t created equal…so no one can help me police my moral code, but we are both responsible if we decide to do something we both feel is wrong or immoral…so if a man/woman is ok with having their significant other smashed by others, then by all means, consent away…

      i do believe that stupid people don’t make a habit out of being successful and vice versa…out of the thousands of cats in the various leagues and gov’t offices, you only hear about a dozen or so every year that actually need this life counseling…i would never call it endemic, but i will say that you’ve never heard of a truck driver flying around his mistress on tax payer dollars…and it’s not necessarily because his moral code is stronger…we just don’t tend to give truck drivers the same trust that we give a…let’s say…kwame kilpatrick…is all i’m sayin…
