It's official: John Balyo will be in jail for a long, long time.

On Tuesday, the ex-WCSG 91.3 morning jock plead guilty in a Kalamazoo County courtroom for photographing sex acts he made on a 12-year-old boy while the child was in restraints in a sadist and masochistic manner. He admitted to a judge that what he did was wrong.

His charges could bring the former Christian radio personality 50 years in the slammer. He is scheduled to be sentenced in November. Currently, he is held without bond.

He also faces more charges in neighboring Calhoun County for forcing an 11-year-old boy to have oral sex on him at a Fairfield Inn in Battle Creek. The man who helped set out the encounter, Ronald Mosier, was paid by Balyo to do so.

Homeland Security agents searched Balyo's home and found lots of paraphernalia, such as a bondage kit that included duct tape, handcuffs, children's socks and articles on missing children. 

It is unknown if Balyo's sentences will be held at the same time or at different times.

OK, so this asshole was supposed to be the salt and light for a lot of people in west Michigan and yet he does something so disgusting and heinous. Why? When it was discovered that Balyo was sexually assaulting children, it sent shockwaves for many here. WCSG is a popular station, but I think many will abandon them because of what happened. True, many hardcore Christians are praying for Balyo and his victims, but I think for many like myself, WCSG stands for "We Crave Sexy Gradeschoolers".

Sorry, but John Balyo is a sick, twisted soul. He's wrecked a lot of lives and the children he raped may never recover. I hope he dies in jail because he does not deserve any freedom for what he did, period.

In the end, I hope the blood of Jesus touches Balyo's victims.

Looks like Uncle Ted is eating his words because of comments he made earlier this year.

The has-been rocker, pedophile and draft-dodger is under fire for making a racist statement against President Obama at a gun show, saying "I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America." Now, because of his always idiotic comments, several Indian casinos are canceling his shows.

The Emerald Queen in Tacoma, WA and the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley, ID canceled Nugent's shows next month over the comments he made about the president. Lawrence W LaPointet, the head of the tribal counsel that runs one of the venues says that the First Amendment should be protected, but racism shouldn't. According to Nugent, he blames the liberals and their agenda for wanting to derail his career. He also claims that he's no racist, citing that two of his bass players were black and Hispanic.

But that's Ted Nugent for ya: an asshole whose days of playing sold out arenas outside of Michigan are dead and gone. Yeah, he might sell out The Palace or Van Andel Arena or maybe get a good crowd at Pine Knob-er, DTE Energy Music Theatre, but if he's playing in Seattle, his best best is an Indian casino that might seat a few hundred tops.

Honestly, if Ted wants to maintain his integrity, he needs to keep his fucking yapper shut, or else he might as well cancel his tour. I hate any rocker who kisses Repuke ass and brags about it. I also hate the fact that he talks about making guns more available for everybody even though we've had tons of shootings over the past several years.

After all, he's 65 years old. RETIRE ALREADY!

7.29.14 Bee-otch of the Day: Walgreens

Name: Walgreens
Age: 113
Occupation: drug store chain
Last Seen: Deerfield, IL
Bee-otched For: being at the corner of Happy and FUCK AMERICA

---
For the past few years, Walgreens has been using the old Credence Clearwater Revival classic "Down on the Corner" for their commercials which end with the slogan "At the Corner of Happy and Healthy".

Now, those ads might end up using Yello's "Oh Yeah" with the slogan of "An der Ecke gl├╝cklich und gesund".

The powers-that-be of America's largest drug store chain are now deciding whether or not they want to move their headquarters to Switzerland. The reason being is because of a tax loophole that would save Wag's from paying an extra $4 billion in taxes if they were to stay here in the US. Currently, the company is planning to take over a majority share of the Swiss company Alliance Boots, which operates the 165-year-old Boots Drugstore chain in Britain. Right now, Wag's owns a 45% stake of AB with the rest owned by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and an Italian billionaire, Stefano Pessina, who owns 8% of Walgreens and 18% of AB.

According to US tax laws, Wag's could save $4 BILLION if they moved to Switzerland, leaving their long time Chicagoland home for good. It might even cause other American companies to do the same, too, which would ruin this great nation.

It breaks my heart when people don't buy American, but that's life. Our country has been deunionized to the point where people are living on scraps weekly while big corporations like Walgreens have told people "fuck you" and move on.

I remember many years ago in my old hometown of Elk Rapids, MI, Walgreens wanted to build a store off of the main highway that runs through town, US-31. However, the town sprung into action and its citizens told Walgreens to fuck off. The town already has two locally-owned pharmacies that care about its citizens. I remember when the news came out about the proposed Walgreens and I talked to my great aunt and uncle in nearby Kewadin about it. They told me that they went to a Walgreens in Florida after my great uncle had surgery for his meds. However, the employees took their time. Why? Simple: THEY JUST DON'T CARE. They're underpaid, so who gives a flying fuck? Meanwhile, my great aunt is crying and yelling that her husband is about to puke his guts out in the car.

However, the service at both pharmacies in ER - River Pharmacy and The Corner Druggist - is way better, especially since they're both locally owned and in the case of The Corner Druggist, it was founded the same year as Walgreens, 1901. According to my great aunt, Wes Knecht, The Corner Druggist's owner lives above his store in an apartment. If you're out of your meds at 2 a.m. in the morning and it's an emergency, he'll rush downstairs, fill your order and open the door for you to get them. Most Walgreens would never do that in a million years.

But that's the sad reality of life: big chain - good, mom-n-pop - bad. Mom-n-pop charges too much while the big chain charges less. Because of that, people tend to think that they're saving money, but in the long run, they're killing jobs and the rest of the country. I'm very picky with where I spend my money. In my section of town, my grocery choices are Meijer, Family Fare, D&W, Walmart, Aldi and Horrock's. Of those choices, Horrock's is the only real local choice, although I rarely go there since they're more focused on food than other important grocery choices, i.e. toilet paper and shampoo. Personally, I go to Aldi the most. OK, OK, so I'm a hypocrite since they're German, but they treat their employees well and their food is good and cheap. But for the stuff that Aldi doesn't have, I usually go to Walgreen's, but with their backs being turned on America, I might end up doing more shopping at Family Fare since they're also local (even though their owners, Spartan Stores merged with Nash Finch several months ago to become SpartanNash).

So, there you go. Walgreens can go to hell for all I care. I'm sick and tired of people turning their backs on this great nation all in the name of money. I would like to see more local grocers and pharmacists here in my section of town, but it'll never happen as long as it's all big boxed in my neighborhood. If people knew what was going down at Wag's, they should stop going there, too.

But that's also another thing killing us all: IGNORANCE.

Age: 62
Occupation: morning news program on NBC
Last Seen: New York, NY
Bee-otched For: putting the smack down on Michael Moore

---
And people wonder why Good Morning America is kicking ass in the ratings.

Last week, NBC aired a piece during Today that reported on the divorce between Michael Moore and his wife of over 20 years and co-producer of his hit movies, Kathleen Glynn. The piece practically blasted Moore for the fact that he's supposed to be this leader for the 99% but lives in luxury in a $2 million house overlooking Torch Lake near Bellaire, the county seat of mostly-Republican Antrim County and has a population of only 1,100. The piece also revealed that some of the rumored residents of that area include Madonna and Bruce Willis.

Many of the people NBC interviewed on the street seemed to have a negative view on Moore, claiming that he's a hypocrite for standing up to the mega-wealthy but the fact is, is that he's rich himself. However, one person did stand out and said that Moore deserves it because, well, his films and projects make money. After all, Fahrenheit 9/11 made over $200 million world-wide.

The piece failed to mention the fact that this week, Moore's Traverse City Film Festival is in full effect and is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. The story didn't mention that Moore saved a classic downtown movie house, the State Theatre from turning into an eyesore. As a matter of fact, many other movie theatres in northern Michigan are even showing selections from the TCFF; the Elk Rapids Cinema showed the movie Sister last week to sold-out crowds.

But yet, NBC shows a man who had spent most of his career as somebody who has been exploiting the right as a wealthy SOB who lives in a $2 million mansion on a lake while his old hometown of Flint lies in ruins.

But.... here's why I think NBC ran that shit piece: guess who's a correspondent on Today?



THAT'S RIGHT! None other than Dubya's drunk bar slut daughter, Jenna. No wonder why Today's ratings are like Kathie Lee Gifford's boobs: SAGGING. Some people bitch about Chelsea Clinton's lack of involvement with the network, but personally, I think she's a hell of a lot more deserving than somebody whose father threw us into fake wars and cheated hard-working Americans out of their jobs and homes.

Here's my take: MICHAEL MOORE IS MORE DESERVING OF A $2 MILLION HOME THAN A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE THEM. Not to forget the fact that Moore gives out a lot of his money to help people in need. Moore's mansion is tiny comparing to assholes like Bible thumpers like Joel Osteen and mega-millionaires like "Papa John" Schlatter who screw over people for their money. Why doesn't NBC report on these people?

So where do you want Michael Moore to live? A shack?

The hits keep on coming for former WCSG-FM 91.3 Grand Rapids morning jock John Balyo.

As we reported last month, the former host of the "Family Friendly Morning Show" was charged for having sexual relations with an 11-year-old boy when the boy performed oral sex on him at a Battle Creek Fairfield Inn. Now, it looks like his time in jail will get even stronger.

Federal charges against Balyo were made in Kalamazoo County for taking pictures of a 12-year-old boy last April. The file also claims that Balyo also had child pornography in his possession.

Not long after charges were made regarding Balyo's assault in Kalamazoo came the news that Balyo and his accomplice and the boy's pimp, Ronald Mosier took pictures of the boy's rape. He was forced to forfeit electronic devices such as an iMac computer and flash drives containing child pornography.

Balyo was arrested several weeks ago at a Christian music festival in Gaylord. It was also reported that he was spotted at the Meijer in Gaylord shortly before going to the festival because he heard that little boys' pants were half-off.

Ya know, I find it sick that people support a radio station that promotes family values and yet one of their jocks is a sick motherfucker who rapes young boys. What's hypocritical is that many of WCSG's supporters probably were on the "kick Howard Stern out of west Michigan" bandwagon in the 90's and 00's because he had strippers and lesbos on his show, but yet, this asshole does much worse.

If I went to a place were WCSG was having a fundraiser and they begged me for money, I'd tell them that I kindly don't fund child molesters. What John Balyo did is beyond sick and I hope he burns in a worse place than hell for what he did.

May he drop the soap and get something much worse than what he did to those children.

Bee-otched For: spreading shit about Mark Schauer

The more I see anti-Mark Schauer ads on TV, the more I can't wait til November comes.

Last week, a new ad started running on TV showing a woman with five chins holding her baby while standing in front of a Toyota Camry (MADE IN KENTUCKY). In the ad, the porker cries that her family is paying too much in taxes as-is, but gee, whiz, Mark Schauer's going to raise that same family's taxes since he voted for tax hikes 40 times.

However, Schauer's campaign claims that current governor Rick Snyder is only putting wool over our eyes. Under his current policies, the average middle class family in Michigan has seen their taxes go up as much as 77%. Tax credits have been slashed for homeowners and even children.

But guess who runs the Republican Governors Association, who funded the ad? None other than Chris Christie, who is under investigation for Bridgegate last year. Let's also not forget that currently, Mark Schauer is accusing Snyder of spying on his campaign, as reported on yesterday's Bee-otch of the Day.

Look, a fat woman who looks like Jabba the Hut won't convince me to vote Republican. That ad is a slap in the face to the people of Michigan. I hope that Mark Schauer will become our governor this fall to reverse Snyder's DeVos and Koch ass-kissing bullshit so he can create jobs and put Michiganders back to work.

It's time to cut the pork.

**SECONDARY BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY: THE MEDIA FOR HARDLY REPORTING ON THIS**
---
In 1974, the media had a field day when Richard Nixon hired some spies to find some secrets in the Watergate Hotel.

Of course, that little brouhaha cost Nixon his presidency and his spies were all thrown into jail. Thanks to Gerald Ford naturally pardoning Nixon, he never saw a second of jail time, although he did admit it during his interviews with David Frost.

Forty years ago, cable TV was in its infancy and there weren't as many channels to choose from regarding news. Most of us waited til 6:30 for Walter Cronkite to read off the world's happenings. Now, we're flooded with those same networks, plus CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and the internet for our news.

It's just too bad when another scandal happens, the media goes, "meh."

Right now, Gov. Rick Snyder has a scandal on his hands and the media doesn't care. Last week, video surfaced of two MIGOP staffers who used sophisticated video equipment who invaded a private residence in West Bloomfield - near Detroit - that was hosting a private fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer. However, the two - intern Kyle Anderson and press secretary Natalie Collins - left the footage behind. Schauer's campaign posted their wonton efforts on his YouTube page, seen above.

In the video, they introduce themselves to the doorman, who recognized them from a previous event. They took shots at the decor of the house and even wondered if they should have introduced themselves to Lisa Brown, Schauer's running mate. They didn't seem to fit in and some wondered if they should have been kicked out. They left because a woman was looking at them funny and knew that the two were onto something. Anderson and Collins left, but accidentally left the footage behind.

According to the only TV station in west Michigan that even talked about Snyder's snafu, WXMI Fox 17, Schauer has accused Snyder of using spying tactics to get himself re-elected. At a townhall meeting in Coldwater, a man dressed like a CNN reporter was there, but he didn't work for the news channel. Another incident regarded a Snyder intern who tried to get a job with the Schauer campaign.

Without a doubt, Snyder is playing dirty pool to get himself another term as Michigan's governor. Our state has the third WORST unemployment rate in America and yet this asshole thinks we're seeing progress. The truth is, Snyder's tactics are only benefiting the DeVoses and other Michigan elitists. I hope that Schauer will make a federal investigation into Snyder's BS. After all, Schauer and Snyder are in a dead heat in the polls.

The tragedy in all this is the fact that with the exception of Fox 17 - which is owned by Tribune - our local news media - WOOD-TV 8 (NBC, owned by LIN Media but being sold to Media General), WZZM-13 (ABC, Gannet) and WWMT 3 (CBS and owned by *SURPRISE* Sinclair) has ignored this story that needs a lot of attention. IMHO, since this is an election year, which generates into mega ad revenues for them, they're scared that if they bash Snyder, there goes their profits since big corporations and other wealthy assholes like the Kochs are behind him. Plus, since we mentioned Sinclair, let's not forget how far in bed they are with the Republicans, too. Let's also not forget that WOOD's asskissing of the DeVoses, especially by over-promoting ArtPrize and having Amway as part of their "Connecting With Community".

The more I think about it, this will be a red-letter year for the Democrats. The Repukes haven't done jack shit in four years to improve this country and Snyder is proof positive. If Snyder is talking about Michigan rebounding, then why do I see beggars on the street corners? Why are people with four-year college degrees working minimum wage at Walmart? The point is, Snyder is way out of reality and I sure as hope that he'll be sent packing back to Ann Arbor this Fall.

Or even better: JAIL.

Bee-otched For: 
STILL not giving a damn about their listeners
---
I still fondly remember that fateful day on April Fools Day of last year when Real Rock 105 and 95-5 imploded.

The week before, the syndicated Free Beer and Hot Wings show was canceled. Listeners complained and both PD Brian "Cartman" Pfifer and MD Nate "Smitty" Smith told listeners that it was due to ratings and revenue. The week after, the 95.5 signal - which covered the Traverse City and Cadillac areas - flipped to super-boring AC as "EZ 95-5" while 105.1 stayed with rock as simply Rock 105. Cartman moved to mornings, a position he has been familiar with since he was the ex-morning man of one of Rock 105's predecessors, alt-rocker The Zone.

If you're a young male up north, you're SOL when it comes to a decent morning show unless you have a smartphone hooked to the web. OK, most males 18-34 do, but on a local scale, come on! Cartman sounds like an annoying CHR jock, Bob and Tom (The Bear) are older than dirt and Omelette (KLT) is an unfunny Howard Stern wannabe.

But, at least for a while, there was a silver lining to all this.

For several months, FB&HW's website listed Beulah's WOUF 99.3 The Wolf as an affiliate. Now, 99.3 and 92.3 WBNZ have been off the air since early last year for unknown reasons except the fact that when they were on the air, they aired little-to-no advertisements. Of course, now that 95.5 is aimed for the old farts living in Glen Arbor, 99.3 would make a killing with the right promotions and the right strategies.

But, it might as well never happen.

A few weeks ago, the FB&HW website yanked WOUF from their affiliate listings, which means that any chance of the show returning to northern Michigan - unless you're lucky to get 100.7 out of Oscoda - is null and void. Some suggest that 99.3 and 92.3 should be donated to non-profits, so who knows?

Point is, the radio station owners up north are just about as STUPID as the Clear Channels and Cumulus's of the world. They think that catering to the same audience they had 20 years ago will create superb ratings and revenue. But, I beg to differ. I was talking with a friend of mine up in Traverse City and he told me that a lot of the time, WTCM-AM airs a TON of PSAs with no ads. Gee, maybe it's because the talk audience they've had all this time is getting older? Look at KLT, too: many years ago, yeah, they played a lot of butt rock, but at least they played *some* new rock too. Now, it's about 99% classics to make the hicks in Manceltucky happy with their three teeth.

As for Del Reynolds, the owner of Rock 105 and The Bear, I honestly think the reason for the destruction of Real Rock was to save The Bear. Bob and Tom haven't been relevant for years and since they're northern Michigan boys, he wanted to preserve their heritage up north instead of embarrassing them with these two young punks from Grand Rapids. So FB&HW went bye-bye.

But, let's not forget that I left out another rock station in northern Michigan: Grayling's WQON - Q100.

The station's owner/PD/afternoon guy, Jerry Coyne is a regular reader to this blog and I love the fact that he has the anti-corporate approach to radio. You listen to Q100 and you'll never know which song is next. Yeah, the station goes into unfamiliar territory a lot and I have to utilize my phone's Shazam app a lot while listening, but there's a reason why I like this station over the "big three" rockers up north: they don't take shit from anybody.

I know that JC wants Q100 to give KLT a run for its money, but I wonder if he would be interested in getting FB&HW for mornings? I think it might work. The station will get a lot of P2s and it might get them further on the map. Plus, they're in talks to upgrade to 100,000 watts (they're at 60,000 now), so who knows? True, they do have a morning guy (Dave Sherbert), but he can be moved to middays, can't he?

As the old saying goes, just a thought....

It's official: Tracy Morgan is suing Walmart.

As many of you recall, several weeks ago, the SNL and 30 Rock star was seriously injured when the Mercedes-Benz limo bus he was in with several other comics was rear-ended by a semi-truck from Walmart on a New Jersey expressway. Morgan's friend and co-headliner, James McNair was killed while Morgan suffered multiple injuries, including broken ribs and a broken leg.

The comic was hospitalized for five weeks and is resting at home comfortably. He was seen on camera at his home walking out to his SUV in a walker, holding a peace sign and saying, "I'm OK!" on Monday.

Now, the comic is going into some serious matters by suing the retailer because the driver of the truck that injured him and killed his friend was awake for 24 hours straight and fell asleep behind the wheel. The driver, Kevin Roper has pleaded not guilty for vehicular homicide. The lawsuit states that the retailer should have known that Roper was awake for a full day before hitting the wheel. Walmart has said that they are cooperating in the investigation.

Some wonder why would Walmart do something like this, but that's the case of big business. Working until Midnight tonight? Good! Be back here at 6 a.m. Who needs sleep? I've done that shit before and it's not fun. Lack of sleep is not good for anybody and it sure isn't good when you're driving a semi from Georgia up to New Jersey.

But that's what happens, folks when we allow companies to dissolve unions and make up their own rules. Safety is no longer an issue and that's why people need to support companies that support their workers and not the other way around. I'm proud that I don't support Walmart at all and hope that Morgan won't pussy out and settle out of court. He deserves every penny from this lawsuit and bear in mind, Walmart can afford it.

That will definitely put Walmart's smile upside down.

When I was a young boy, I remember watching a promo on The Family Channel for Bonanza with my now-late grandfather.

The announcer said to join Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker and Michael Landon for another rip-roaring adventure in the Ponderosa. Grandpa shook his head and uttered, "they're all dead".

Of course, Pernell Roberts was the last original member to die, but he left the show in 1965 because of a conflict between him and NBC. As a matter of fact, he died in 2010, nine years after Grandpa died.

It's sad when members of a rock band die. The Rolling Stones have lost Brian Jones, The Beatles are without John and George and a whole bunch of folks from Lynyrd Skynyrd died from their infamous 1977 plane crash and other causes afterward. Fortunately, there are some bands with their full lineups intact such as ZZTop. But now, it's a sad fact that now, all four original members of The Ramones have all left us.

On Saturday, Tommy Ramone, who drummed on the band's first three albums and helped to produce others died of bile duct cancer at age 65. Born in Hungry as Thomas Erdelyi, he moved to the US with his Holocaust-survivor parents at age four. In 1974, he and high school buddy John Cummings, Doug "Dee Dee" Colvin and Jeffery "Joey" Hyman, all banded together as The Ramones, named after Paul McCartney's alias "Phil Ramon" during his days as a member of The Quarrymen, a band that was a precursor to The Beatles. They played at several local New York clubs, namely CBGB where they caught the attention of several record labels. They signed with Sire Records in 1975 and a year later recorded their self-titled album.

To many, The Ramones were not the same commercial rock you'd hear on the album-oriented stations at the time. They had their own look with long, flowing black hair with leather jackets and sunglasses. Their songs were loud and short, most of them clocking under three minutes. Despite a cult following, The Ramones' first album wasn't a huge seller; it only went gold earlier this year. However, it did spawn two singles: "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" and the punk anthem "Blitzkrieg Bop". Their next album Leave Home didn't produce anything major although they finally cracked the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978 with "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" off of their Rocket to Russia album. Their biggest pop hit was "Rockaway Beach", which charted at #66 in 1978. Their biggest success in America, however was 1989's "Pet Sematary" which went to #4 on the Modern Rock charts in 1989.

However, Tommy tired of touring and left the band in 1978. Marc Bell, aka Marky, took over the drumkit. Tommy remained as the band's producer for many more years. A year later, the band recorded "I Wanna Be Sedated", probably the band's most-famous song. The tune's popularity grew ten years later when a video was shot of the group sitting at a breakfast table with Joey lip-syncing the song.

Over the years, the band had their conflicts with Joey and Johnny's famous fighting over politics and race, plus Marky's alcoholism, which got him kicked out the band. It was some of the major reasons why the band broke apart in 1996. Three years later, just about everybody who was a Ramone appeared at the Virgin Megastore in New York one last time.

Sadly, the post-Ramones years were tough on the founding members. Joey died of lymphoma in 2001, Dee Dee died of a heroin overdose a year later and Johnny died two years later from prostate cancer. Now, with Tommy gone, all four founding Ramones are joining Lorne, Pernell, Michael, Dan and Grandpa in the great unknown.

True, the non-founding Ramones - Marky, Richie, Elvis (really Blondie's Clem Burke) and CJ - are still around, but sadly, that doesn't mean that we'll have a Ramones reunion soon. However, The Ramones will survive in one way, shape or form. Without them, rock radio wouldn't be what it is today. In the late 70's, rock fans could sit through overplayed arena rock or worse, disco, but The Ramones, along with other bands such as the Sex Pistols, Blondie, X, Talking Heads and others helped to make punk and new wave stand out above the rest. Imagine what today's rock bands would sound like if The Ramones didn't exist. It would be tough! But they did, and we were proud that they gave us some memorable tunes.

Thanks, boys. Say hi to Grandpa, will ya?

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

For the past several weeks, I've been slacking on Bee-otch of the Day, and there's a good reason why: I had a girlfriend.

Yes, for the first time since high school, I actually found a girlfriend. I found her on POF.com. She wasn't good enough to pose for Playboy but she wasn't a fat porker, either. We started chatting on, ironically enough, my birthday. We chatted for a few days, and we agreed to meet on that Friday. But, we didn't meet at a coffee shop or at an ice cream parlor; it was my place.

We got pineapple pizza - her favorite - and almost immediately, I found a red flag in our relationship: she wanted sex on the first date. So, I compromised and gave her oral. Her twat wasn't too bad-tasting, but soon, I learned that the key to her orgasmic heart was giving her hickeys on her chest.

Things were OK until I had to spend the whole weekend in Detroit and had to leave her behind. She cooked Shepherd's Pie (she is of Irish dissent) for her aunt and uncle and asked her to save me some. However, I didn't get to see her much at all that week, and it was because she fell into a great depression. You see, this girl suffers from anxiety, depression and high blood pressure, plus she's legally deaf. I texted her if she was going to toss the pie since it was going to go bad, and she got pissed at me. After two weeks of being together, she threatened to dump me because she felt that I insulted her. Because she didn't have health insurance, she couldn't afford her medication and since she was off her meds, she got sad and angry even if I dropped a pin on the floor.

Thankfully, things recovered, but once again, things went south real quick. Fourth of July weekend, her aunt and uncle - whom she lives with - both went to Virginia to visit their daughter and she had the place to herself. She decided that part of the time, she would spent it at my place. However, she got cold feet because she had a two-year relationship with some loser in Fremont and felt that she was making a mistake. So, when she woke up at my place Sunday morning, she was beyond pissed.

She came back the next day and we were fooling around when by accident, I spilled a cup of wine she was drinking. Some of it splashed on her purse and she was so pissed that she left. Yes, she left over fucking spilled wine. So, we texted later and I agreed to buy her more wine. She came back the next day and she was happy again. We fucked and had fun.

She had the next two days off, but she ended up with a bad migraine and the next day, an ear infection. Even worse, her depression came back. Her attitude worsened and it was really starting to piss me off, so I stopped texting her, hoping that she would recover. On Saturday, she did, but while I was shopping and heading toward the checkout, she called me. Basically, all she did was bitch about all the bad things I've done. WHAT?!?! Let's see: I took her out to eat several times, gave her several cups of coffee, bought her tons of wine and I also purchased several beach balls. OK, so you're wondering why I bought her beach balls. Well, she's got a weird-ass fetish where she's turned on when I shove a beach ball up her twat and I blow it up. We tried to do it anally, but it hurt her instead.

Saturday night, she got off work and we started texting again. I mentioned to her all the NICE things I've done for her and brought up all the minor, bad things I've done. So, we argued for a while and I basically told her that if she wants to dump me, fine. I can't stand assholes who piss and moan to people like me who bust their ass to get to where they are today. So, Sunday morning, she picked up her only item she had here - a bag of incense - and left.

The. End.

So there you have it: seven weeks. In the 12 years I've lived here, it was the longest relationship I had. She was a bitch with too many issues and can't respect the fact that I changed my life for her and this is what I get: five beach balls on my floor, a can of helium to blow the balls up, a bottle-and-a-half of Moscato wine that I can't drink because of my own anxiety, a bottle of St. Ives body wash in the bathroom and some bubble bath. Oh, yes, a half-broken heart.

But, I look on the bright side: the non-existent tears that I've cried will make me a stronger person. My ex was a woman that did things I would never do in a million years. She loves country music and I hate it. She's a church goer and I sleep in on Sunday. Fuck, she actually voted for Bush in 2004! Yet, the sad thing is that she's 30 years old with three college degrees and yet she makes minimum wage as a greeter at a retail store. She even admits that she can't even keep a job for six months.

Point is, I can do better. I think the key to a successful relationship is to have something else in common other than bumping uglies on my couch. I love rock music, some alternative and new wave/punk, don't go to church on Sunday and so much more. This broad had to go and I need somebody who has the same likes I do. I work over 50 hours a week and I don't need somebody who only works 35 telling me what to do.

But as always, another door will hopefully open soon.
