Facts of life

This sex stuff is unbelievable. I don't understand why men are willing to lose everything for a "massage" with a sexual fantasy service.

The Blotter

Not that Randy Tobias is the only fool in the lineup. It's a long list, including the guy I watched one night on Cops who was receiving "a massage" from a pool! There he was, on camera, stuck in the throes of lust ... with a pool!

And I hate to say this, I really do, but we thought Bill Clinton was bad. But not really. I'm not sure anyone really thought that Bill Clinton was that bad. Certainly not Newt, who at the time had his own thing going, come to find out. I think most men didn't blame Clinton despite what they might have said to their wives or in front of their church friends. And most women didn't really blame Monica. We think she got a little kooky in the end, but given the chance to tryst with the most powerful man in the world... It is an age-old tale.

I think most people think that this stuff happens all the time. Especially with the politicos. They are like rock stars tripping on the aphrodisiac of power. Women are drawn to them, trippin' on their own Delilah fantasy. What could be better than having power over the most powerful?

What gets me, however, is the lies about it all. Randy Tobias calling for abstinence, while trafficing on a sexually moral road. Ted Haggard preaching against homosexuality -- pushing for legislation -- while relaxing with "a massage" from a male prostitute. Why do they always seem so smug?

I am reminded this morning of a verse that I have come to believe as a truth, simply because I have seen it proven time and time again. "God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble."

I'm looking for humble.

I'll listen to humble.

It's the pridefulness we can all do without.

The Facts of Life

by Alan Thicke, Gloria Loring and Al Burton) Lyrics - The Facts of Life Lyrics

There's a place you've got to go for learning
all you want to know about the facts of life
the facts of life.

When books are what you're there about
and looks are what you care about
the time is right,
to learn the facts of life.

When the world never seems
to be living up to your dreams
it's time you started finding out
what everything is all about

When the boys you used to hate you date,
I guess you best investigate
the facts of life you gotta get'em right
the facts of life,
the facts of life,
the facts of life

Seasons 2-5
You take the good, you take the bad,
you take them both and there you have
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.

There's a time you got to go and show
You're growin' now you know about
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.

When the world never seems
to be livin up to your dreams
And suddenly you're finding out
the Facts of Life are all about you, you.

It takes a lot to get 'em right
When you're learning the Facts of Life. (learning the Facts of Life)
Learning the Facts of Life (learning the Facts of Life)
Learning the Facts of Life.

End Credits
You'll avoid a lot of damages
an enjoy the fun of managing
the facts of life;
they shed a lot of light
If you hear them from your brother,
better clear them with your mother
better get them right,
call her late at night

You got the future in the palm of your hands
all you gotta do to get you through is understand
you think you rather do without,
you will never make without the truth
the facts of life is all about you
