10.17.19 Hero of the Day: Elijah Cummings


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------
A SPECIAL HERO OF THE DAY!
Name: Elijah Cummings
Age: 68
Occupation: former US Rep
Last Seen: up in the heavens
Awarded For: being the peoples' Rep
 
-


America has lost one of her greatest freedom fighters.

Longtime Congressman Elijah Cummings of Baltimore died last night from what his family called years of various health issues. He was 68. The son of sharecroppers who were preachers, he first served in the Maryland House in 1983 and became a US Congressman in 1996. He served as a chair on the House Oversight Committee and was one of its most-fiery voices.

Many praised Cummings on social media today, even Drumpf, whom Cummings was trying to impeach. Cummings appeared in Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" and Moore himself paid tribute to Cummings, saying that "he was a fighter for those who weren't allowed a seat at the table".

Cummings represented a part of America that was heavily black and had its issues with crime and poverty. As a matter of fact, Drumpf even told Cummings to worry more about his city than him. But that's the point. One huge reason why there's lots of impoverished areas in America is because of the Repukes and how they manipulate people into thinking that most black folks simply don't want to work. To make matters more embarrassing, there's more WHITES on government assistance than African-Americans and more poor cities in America that are heavily white than black.

On Facebook today, most pages reporting on Cummings' passing were responded with a sad face or a heart. It bothered me that people on the page of UpNorthLive - the FB page of Sinclair owned TV stations WPBN 7&4 (NBC) and WGTU ABC 29&8 - responded with laughter. One person bitched about Cummings being a crook and other calling Baltimore a "liberal garbage dump". There were even a few folks who responded with the laugh emoji on CBS station WWTV 9&10's FB page. At least the comment section on 9&10's page was a lot more respectable, with some even calling for karma on those who thought that it was a funny thing that a man who worked his ass off for not just his district, but ALL the have-nots in America.

Sometimes, I feel angry that over 40 years ago, my Dad's cousin came down to Detroit with a U-Haul and moved my parents to BFE. I was always upset that my cousins in Detroit had everything while I got stuck with people who had no redeeming qualities. When I saw the laughing icons on the northern Michigan TV station FB pages, it hearkened me to when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center. At the time, my mother worked at a tool and die and one of her co-workers thought it was all hilarious.

That tool and die, BTW was near the town of Mancelona.

I love it how many move up to northern Michigan from Detroit to get away from black people. They think of crime and poverty when they think African American. Yet, there's towns up north that -- SURPRISE! -- are more impoverished than Detroit. Twenty-odd years ago, Mancelona's downtown was loaded with abandoned buildings. A fire wiped out one block, which is now a park. Legendary morning radio DJ - and former announcer to MadTV - Bill "The Captain" Vogel of 106 KHQ allegedly commented on the fire that it did $37 of damage. The town's high school was once condemned and - at least when I was in high school, thankfully not in Manceltucky - about one out of ten high school seniors were pregnant.

Even more, there's towns up north that are food deserts. Towns that even though they have a population of over a few hundred can no longer support a grocery store. Manton has not had a real supermarket in 20-odd years. Ellsworth's former Viking Foods store has had trouble staying open and has had many failed owners for years. Empire lost Deering's Market and Lake City lost Foster's - both SpartanNash stores - last year. Reed City grocery landmark Vic's Supermarket closed two years ago, but a couple is rehabbing a old, tiny gas station next door that will serve as the town's sport for light grocery items and produce. If you think food deserts are a ghetto staple, think again. Some cities up north have no real grocery for over 10 miles.

Of course, I can touch on drug problems and some of the schools where kids are barely even passing. Yes, there's nice towns where tourism reigns and the downtowns are loaded with t-shirt shops and stuff that's outrageously expensive. And where restaurants have to close because the greedy-ass owners won't pay their workers a living wage. I can go on.

The point is that it's sick when people see Mr. Cummings as an old, angry black man from a town that's not the world's greatest place to live. But let's remember: this is what happens when unions get busted, the wealthy get tax breaks and good-paying jobs become sparse. Rep. Cummings didn't just fight for blacks, he fought for the middle class and protected them from losers like Drumpf who do nothing but tell those who work hard to stand in the corner and sulk.

Folks, this is why I have this site and this blog. I know how it feels to be excluded. I worked hard to shame those who need to be shamed for being the scum of the Earth. Originally, this site was designed to persuade northern Michigan broadcasters to start airing Howard Stern. Of course, it never happened. Hell, one broadcaster even sent me a cease and desist order. But at the end of the day, Howard won and so did the people up north thanks to SiriusXM. And as a result, northern Michigan now has several stations that are struggling under a two share. The one station that SHOULD have aired Stern and adjust their music format so us born in the 80s could actually enjoy it, KLT is now tied in the ratings with the station, Rock 105 and 95-5 that did it for them.

I know, I should step away from this blog sometimes, but until I have a woman to give me an excuse to do so, ain't gonna happen. Until we all get a respectable share of the pie, you'll see me updating Bee-otch of the Day on an almost daily basis. After all, as George Carlin once said, "it's one big club, and you ain't in it!"

Thank you, Rep. Cummings. Rest in power.

10.16.19 Bee-otch of the Day: Cumulus


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------

Name: Cumulus Media
Age: 22
Occupation: radio giant
Last Seen: Atlanta, GA
Bee-otched For: not doing The Q... in the ratings
 
-


Well, Nielsen did do a good thing by making Grand Rapids a monthly market as opposed to being a seasonal one.

Recently, the ratings company started handing out monthly ratings regarding Grand Rapids radio stations. Plus, they are providing ratings for non-commercial stations, which places Christian station WCSG in the top three (it was #1 not long ago). In the book released yesterday, WCSG finished in 3rd place while B93 and WOOD-AM/FM were #1 and #2 respectively. Definitely a good book for conservatives in west Michigan.

CHR WSNX and Rocker WGRD rounded out the top five.

However, there's a mystery lurking in Nielsen-land and it's the case of the missing AAA station. That, of course, being Cumulus's 94.5 The Q, aka the new WKLQ.

Yes, it's nice that Cumulus returned the historic WKLQ call letters to 94.5, though their days of being possibly the coolest rock station in the state of Michigan ever are long gone. Instead of charming the airwaves with The Tool RuleMandatory MetallicaMetal at Midnight and hearing Clutch's "Spacegrass" every other day, the new 94.5 plays a blend of alternative, classic rock and stuff you only want to enjoy if you drink a shit ton of IPA. On a positive note, some of the stuff The Q plays is reminiscent of the old KLQ's Sunday night program Clambake.

But since The Q was launched last January, it hasn't been reported to Nielsen. Apparently, Cumulus doesn't want to know how The Q is doing, or quite simply, they're making Nielsen embargo their ratings. Their other stations - LAV, Hot FM, Thunder 107.3 and The Ticket - all are on the ratings chart (and all but LAV have good ratings). But why The Q is missing is a mystery. However, rumor has it that The Q's ratings are *actually* pretty good given the fact that AAA isn't really a ratings-friendly format.

Michigan's two other AAAs are sister station 107one in Ann Arbor and to an extent, Windsor, Canada's 93.9 The River, which covers Detroit, but also spikes in Hot AC tracks as well.

So, why is Cumulus hiding how The Q is doing? Even more, I hardly see any real promotion of the station anywhere. No billboards or TV ads.

Then again, this is Cumulus we're talking about, a company that went though bankruptcy because, well, they pissed people off. The only good thing they did when they bought Citadel's Grand Rapids cluster a decade ago was shitcan Matt Hanlon for what he did to the old KLQ. The fact that they fired the Dickey brothers also helped.

The reality is that I think as listeners, we have a right to know, but who knows? Maybe there's an issue between Cumulus and Nielsen. In any case, I hope shit gets resolved so, well, I might be able to prove a point that AAA DOES work in GR, or maybe it doesn't. If The Q is indeed successful, maybe it'll persuade iHeartMedia to FINALLY kill 101.3 The Brew and flip it to alternative. Hell, they can keep Rover's Morning Glory for all I know if that were to happen. If not, then it proves my point that it's time for Cumulus to think Urban for Grand Rapids.

Yes, I'd like to see KLQ back with Stern in the morning... minus the Bachelor talk and ass-kissing to Ellen DeGeneres.One can dream, eh?

10.15.19 Bee-otch of the Day: NFL



Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------

Name: National Football League
Age: 99
Occupation: sports organization
Last Seen: New York City
Bee-otched For: turning the Lions into kitty cats
 
-


I went to bed during the halftime of last night's Monday Night Football. And as usual, the sun rises from the east and settles in the west.

And at the end of the day, the Lions lost.

Last night's battle with the Green Bay Packers was a close slobberknocker that had the Pack winning by just one point. But a huge part of the reason of course was the officiating of last night's game.

Many in Detroit claimed that the referees penalized the Lions for offenses that should have been for the Packers. One was for touching of the facemask. Lions got the penalty, not the Packers. Even Barry Sanders took to Twitter to criticize the NFL for allowing the Cheeseheads to win.

The sad reality is that the Lions' relationship with the NFL refs has been a horrid one. Remember their loss to the Cowboys in the playoffs several years ago? Remember (ugh) Chris Christie dancing in the skybox with Jerry Jones? Puke my guts out.

I have a theory, and it's the fact that the NFL hates the Ford family. In the league, there's something called the "Rooney Rule", named for the late Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney, who insisted that team owners interview minorities for coaching jobs before interviewing whites. In 2003, Then-team owner William Clay Ford interviewed his top pick, Steve Mariucci, which pissed off NFL execs. In the end, Mariucci was fired because of his horrid record. They had a black coach, Jim Caldwell who was their winningist coach in over 50 years. But he was canned in 2018 for current coach Matt Patricia despite a 9-7 season.

In the world of football, some want to compare the lonesome Lions to baseball's Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox, two teams that went forever without a World Series win. The team hasn't won a championship since 1957 and only won one playoff game under Ford family ownership.

This Sunday, the Lions will go head-to-head against the Minnesota Vikings, 4-2 on the season and in second place in the NFC North. The Lions are dead last with a 2-2-1. All I can say is that Lions fans should cheer up since the Dolphins and Bengals remain winless. Plus, the season's not over. I predict that they'll go 8-7-1, but whether or not if it will lead them into the playoffs is anyone's guess this early in the season. It's up to Matt Stafford and whether or not the refs are biased or not.

But let's remember what the letters FORD stand for: Fix It Again, Tony... No, wait....

10.14.19 Bee-otch of the Day: Jared Chance



Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------


Name: Jared Chance
Age: 30
Occupation: jailbird
Last Seen: Grand Rapids, MI
Bee-otched For: being a sick fuck
 
-

It's the court case that has left Grand Rapids - and the world - outraged.

A 31-year-old woman, Ashley Young was murdered and dismembered last year in the home of Jared Chance. Her torso was found in the basement of his apartment building and a neighbor discovered it when he noticed a strange smell. A DNA test determined that it was Young.

The rest of her body was never discovered. Meanwhile, Chance's parents may be changed for covering for their son.

On Thursday, Jared Chance was sentenced to 100 years in prison for Young's murder. At his sentencing, Young's mother - wearing a black t-shirt that read in white letters "Mother of Angel Ashley" standing with a box of her remains - deservingly screamed at him that she was told at 18 that she couldn't have children and Ashley was a gift from God, albeit for a very short time. Kristine Young's bone-chilling screaming at Chance is definite proof how committed of a mother she was to Ashley, especially since she'll definitely be hurting for the rest of her life over her loss.

Jared Chance had a criminal record since he was a teenager and those who knew him reported that he was quite violent. He also had drug issues, mainly with Oxycodone and Methadone.

You know, I don't know what Ashley Young saw in Jared Chance. Then again, I don't know why some women would want to date a total loser. It's sickening that too many women end up dating or marrying losers and in the end, they have their kid, and once they FINALLY dump the loser, that woman is damaged goods since nobody wants to raise a loser's kid.

The sad truth is that there's simply too many women out there - and even in my own family - who are like that. If Ashley Young hung out with a real man who treated her with respect, this shit would have never happened. Now, her killer's getting 100 years while she only got 30.

Women, if you're reading this, there's a CRAP TON of men out there who bust their ass and have no criminal record. And yet, they come home to an empty house and have to rely on TV dinners since there's nobody to cook for them. Why you like losers who are drunk, on drugs and beat the shit out of you is beyond me. But when you have their kid, you're dead to me.

It's too bad for people like Ashley Young, they're getting this advice too late.

10.10.19 Bee-otch of the Day: Donald Trump



Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------


Name: Donald Trump
Age: 73
Occupation: future jailbird
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: everything
 
-


This is what happens when we elect a president who is allowing a teleprompter do the work for him.

Remember the old 1980s TV show TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes? Nothing like good 'ol Dick Clark and Ed McMahon showing off some forgettable moments from all our favorite TV shows. Flubbed lines, prop mishaps and even wardrobe malfunctions were no match for Clark and McMahon and their witty banter. And yes, ya gotta love those little animations from the great MAD man known as Sergio Aragones.

Sadly, both Clark and McMahon have gone on to the great B-roll in the sky (though we thankfully still have Sergio, and it's rumored that MAD will go on past issue 10 with a hybrid of new material from him and Spy Vs. Spy as well), but if they still were around, maybe they could do a show on the blunders of Drumpf and his beloved teleprompter.

Not long ago, the Drumpfster cried about airports being attacked in 1775, even though we were still some years away from the invention of aviation. When I think of "1775" and "aviation", I think of this.

Early today, Drumpf created an SMH moment when he proclaimed that the Kurds didn't help in Normandy. Now, he's abandoning our allies and, well, it's simply another egg on the face of his faltering administration.

Now, the fact that two of Rudy Giuliani's buddies have been busted for illegal campaign donations to a Texas Repuke, Pete Sessions further shows how corrupt the whole administration is. The two men, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were caught pressuring Ukraine to hand out secrets on Drumpf's rivals, namely Joe Biden.

All this evidence is mounting to the point where we're starting to ask, "when is all this going to stop?" The House is working harder and harder to get this lying shitpile of scum known as Drumpf the fuck out of the White House, and the same goes to Mike Pence.

The funny thing, too is that even Fox Propaganda Channel's viewers are getting tired of him. Guess what? 51% of their viewers are calling for his impeachment! Hard to believe that at least some of their viewers have some brain activity!

At the end of the day, Drumpf's time will soon be ending. Three years is three years too many of his problems. The sooner he's impeached, the better.

At least Robert Mueller won't be involved this time.

10.9.19 Bee-otch of the Day: Ellen DeGeneres


BECOME AN AFFILIATE OF T-SHIRT HELL AND MAKE SOME MONEY!

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------


Name: Ellen DeGeneres
Age: 61
Occupation: yenta
Last Seen: Los Angeles, CA
Bee-otched For: being friends with the enemy
 
-


Ya know, I've always wondered why some people find certain comedians funny.

Bill Cosby was one of them. He's black and never used profanity on stage. Yet, to me, he was bland AF.

Same with Ellen DeGeneres. People love her because in the 1990s, she publicly came out of the closet. Yet, I never watched her 1990s sitcom or even her current daytime talk show. Anything that looks and acts like a henhouse to me is a cop-out.

Now, she's doing damage control.

On her show yesterday, the Presidential Medal of Freedom award-winning comedienne defended the fact that she's close friends with George W. Bush.  Recently, the two were spotted together in a luxury skybox at an NFL game. DeGeneres said that even though their politics are different, they look beyond it. She also said that when she ends her show with "be kind to one another", she means it.

Yes, let's be kind to a monster whose stupidity and ignorance caused 3,000 people to die on 9/11, over 4,000 more to perish in all the fake wars he started plus the countless amount of soldiers coming home with PTSD and other mental issues. Let's be kind to a prick who gave tax breaks to the overly-wealthy, which caused one of the biggest economic collapses in history. Hell, in the 2000s, I was LUCKY to have a job. I had an uncle who went from being a salesman to working at Sam's Club. I had several cousins forced to live with their parents because they couldn't get good jobs and one was older than I was. Both my parents moved out of state and I had to fend for myself. I should have used my 20s to get a better job, start a family and even buy a house. But thanks to the shitty economy, I, like too many others got stuck in neutral.

Thanks to Obama and my ex-boss's retirement, I'm getting roughly TWICE of what I was making a decade age. Plus, the economy's so good that we - like many other places - are having a hard time finding good workers!

The sad truth is that BusHitler is a wanted man in many countries because of war crimes. Yet, he gets to spend time at his Texas ranch with his grandkids and go to Cowboy games with Ellen DeGeneres. He needs to be in jail for the severe pain he inflicted on us Americans. For Ellen to defend a coward like BusHitler makes her nothing more than a traitor to not just her fellow alphabet people, but also to all Americans.

Look, I have conservative and Republican family and friends, too. Hell, my Dad watches Fox News Channel around the clock and loves Drumpf. Hell, many well-known lefties are notorious for being pals with cons, like Seth MacFarlane and Rush Limbaugh, Al Franken and G. Gordon Liddy and even a well-known married couple: Democrat James Carville and former Repuke-turned-Libertarian Mary Matalin. Yes, opposites attract in the world of politics. But then again, Rush wasn't stupid enough to allow the World Trade Center to collapse. Yes, the G-Man might have spent some time behind bars, but he didn't allow 7,000 innocent people to die over oil. It doesn't matter if one is to the left or to the right. A MURDERER IS A MURDERER. I WISH CONGRESS WORKED ON GETTING BUSHITLER IMPEACHED WHEN THEY GOT ELECTED, BUT THEY DIDN'T DO THEIR JOB BACK THEN. WE GOT FUCKED. HARD.

Sadly, Dubya will never see a minute of jailtime, I'm afraid. It's up to our current Congress to get Drumpf impeached and out of office instead. For now, I call for a boycott of Ellen DeGeneres and her fake-ass daytime TV talk show for nasty yentas. Sorry, but being friends with a shit pile of scum like BusHitler is like a Jew befriending Hitler.

Be kind to one another, but if that person's an asshole, turn the other cheek.

10.8.19 Hero of the Day: Jimmy Carter


BECOME AN AFFILIATE OF T-SHIRT HELL AND MAKE SOME MONEY!

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

-------
A SPECIAL HERO OF THE DAY!

Name: Jimmy Carter
Age: 95
Occupation: 39th president
Last Seen: Plains, GA
Awarded For: being the Energizer Bunny
 
-


Some people treat the word "retirement" like a four-letter word.

Many of us want to retire in our 60s. For others, now is more appropriate. But all the time, you see elderly folks doing some type of job, whether it's Walmart greeter or janitor. Sadly, some people work because they have to. Others work because they're afraid that once they retire, they'll die.

Jimmy Carter seems to be one of them.

Yesterday, 39 was at work in Nashville helping to build a house for a cause near and dear to his heart, Habitat For Humanity. This just one day after falling in his home in Georgia, requiring several stitches. Carter proved to be rough and rugged, nailing nails into boards with a giant black eye.

Of course, it seems that even though he's 95, nothing could stop Carter. Not even an 18-wheeler or even in real life, cancer, after beating it a few years ago.

At 38, I'm somewhat amazed that there's a president who served before I was born that's still alive. After all, Reagan and Bush I have both left us. Sometimes, I wonder what this world would be like if Americans voted him in for a second term. I think the wealthy would be paying more in taxes and unions would still be aplenty. But in 1980, people wanted a celebrity as their president and, well, we got fucked. Royally. I think the fact that he told Playboy in 1976 that he had lust in his heart played a role in the Religious Reich telling people to vote for Reagan. And yet, today, Carter is a Sunday School teacher.

Of course, Carter lives quite the modest life. He lives in a $170,000 home in his birthplace of Plains, GA, pop. 700. He often meets and greets people with wife Rosalynn at the local Dollar General, blocks away from the tiny downtown that also boasts the Jimmy Carter Museum. Even better is that in 2016, he supported Bernie Sanders. He's pro-choice, pro-gay and pro-woman, and yet, he and Obama just might be the most-Christian presidents still alive.

And even better, today, he commented on Drumpf's impeachment inquiry by saying, "tell the truth for a change".

You know, the fact that Carter's now the longest-living ex-president ever and is STILL out there building houses for the poor shows his true moral character. It's a shame that in 1980, he lost because of pressure from a group of fake Jebus freaks who thought that Reagan was the more-Christian candidate. But then again, Jesus spoke out against excess wealth and bearing false witness, especially with homophobes bitching that God created AIDS to kill off gays. For Reagan to turn the other cheek on the AIDS crisis showed how truly un-Christian he was. Same with the fact that he was racist and anti-middle class.

And this coming from a man who had six letters each in his first, second and last names.

In all, God bless Jimmy Carter. The fact that injury and illness has not slowed him down at his age shows that I think for now, God still wants him here on Earth to make life better for those in need. The fact that he does something many don't want to do shows that he's not done yet, and there's a lot more to do. The world definitely needs more Jimmy Carters and less Drumpfs.

Jimmy Carter: a man who is showing the world that age is nothing but a number.

10.7.19 Bee-otch of the Day: Great Lakes Energy


BECOME AN AFFILIATE OF T-SHIRT HELL AND MAKE SOME MONEY!

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

Name: Great Lakes Energy
Age: 20
Occupation: electric company
Last Seen: Boyne City, MI
Bee-otched For: wanting to make too much dough
 
-


Not all restaurateurs can be as successful as Gordon Ramsay.

Same goes with Ray Kroc, Mike Ilitch, Dave Thomas or even Col. Sanders.

Most restaurant owners are hard-working people like you and me, working hard to make sure that the meal you paid big bucks for tastes good.

Since 2015, Jamie Zichterman has owned The Mitten Pizza near Gun Lake, about half-way between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. For much of the life of his business, he's paid a reasonable $500 per month in electric bills.

But then, reality hit because of an error by his electric company.

Turns out that his meter readers from Great Lakes Energy didn't realize that his business had two electric meters. As a result, last week, GLE slammed Zichterman with a $20,000 bill.

He announced last week on Facebook that if he cannot come up with the $20K by the end of the month, he'll be forced to close. Thankfully, the community is showing their support for the Zichterman family. One person even started a GoFundMe page that has raised nearly $4,000 to keep The Mitten open.

To somebody who owns a small business, $20,000 is indeed a lot of money. My mother had a small business herself several years ago and she had many unexpected bills, like repairs and landlord surprises. Needless to say, she and her now-ex-husband closed up shop because it was losing money.

Here in my section of Grand Rapids, I'm within a stone's throw of the usual suspects: Pizza Hut, Jet's, Little Caesar's, Sbarro, Old Chicago and even (barf) Domino's. I even live near trendier pizza joints like Buddy's and coming soon, MOD Pizza, which has been called the Chipotle of the pizza business. At MOD (an acronym for "Made On Demand"), all pizzas are the same price regardless of toppings and they're thrown into an 800-degree oven for three minutes. Not to mention, MOD has been praised for paying their employees a living wage, which is quite the opposite for most fast food chains.

However, my area does have local chains for pizza. Uccello's, Palermo's, Faro's, Village Inn and Florentine's all come to mind. Yes, I see ads for all the national chains all the time, but keep trying to tell myself that the smaller joints make decent 'za too, sometimes for a smaller price.

Yes, we should support smaller businesses. They know the community and support it as well. Most-importantly, most small businesses don't give shit tons of money to right-winged hate groups. True, some are run by conservatives (and some sadly do sell guns, like my childhood supermarket), but considering that most small business owners are not billionaires, it does become something to consider.

Speaking of the grocery business, I read about a grocery store near Cadillac that had to close recently because they needed a new roof. Sadly, they couldn't compete with Walmart and Meijer just 10 miles away, so they closed. Further up north in Ellsworth, pop. 400, the town's grocery closed down, though the owners claimed that it was "just for the season", though it's for sale for $90,000. In the description, it talks about the building - a former Viking Foods store - being used for anything but being a supermarket.

With Ellsworth Market's closure, it leaves the town without a spot even to buy basic necessities, like milk or bread. The nearest place is now seven miles down the road in East Jordan, which has a SpartanNash-owned Family Fare and a Save-a-Lot. Ellsworth does have a gas station, but it's the local farmer's co-op. So you can buy charcoal, but not milk. Ellsworth has a school system, but without a grocery store, there's not much tax base to support the schools. Ellsworth's downtown mostly consists of a bar, the aforementioned co-op and not much else.

Look, if the local Pizza Hut had a similar situation to what The Mitten had to deal with, eh, no problem. But since this is a man with a wife and kid, it's a different situation. All I can say is that I hope they can get through this melee and stay open. As for Great Lakes Energy, SHAME ON THEM for pissing on a small business owner like this. I hope that the meter reader who didn't know about the second meter gets canned or at least demoted so he or she won't read another meter ever again.

Here's an idea: maybe somebody should donate The Mitten a SOLAR PANEL so they can live off the grid!

This weekend, audiences are expected to embrace a new Joker.

The beloved Batman villain has been played by many over the years: Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and now, Joaquin Phoenix. So far, the movie has gotten good reviews, especially for Phoenix's performance and storyline, which shadows Joker's road to being an arch enemy of the Caped Crusader.

In the film, Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comic who battles mental issues. After his comedy career ends, he lands himself into a world of crime.

However, some are angry over the release of the film, especially those in Aurora, CO, where a man who was obsessed with The Joker shot up a movie theater, killing 12. The murderer, James Holmes had mental issues and had trouble socializing with people.

Of course, The Joker and Batman are properties of Warner Bros., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American Telephone and Telegraph company, which spent over $100 billion on purchasing Warners and its associated companies, including DC Comics. Obviously, they're banking on the film - which had a budget of $60 million - to break even this weekend.

It's no secret that movies with lots of action, guns and explosions equate to a lot of money at the box office. After all, the Avengers movie from earlier this year made a paltry $2.8 billion at the box office for Warner and DC's main rival, Disney and Marvel.

"Avengers: Endgame" has been the year's highest-grossing film, with "The Lion King" at 2 and "Toy Story 4" at 3 with "Captain Marvel" at 4. The #5 film "Spider-Man: Far From Home" was the highest-grossing non-Disney-released film (though Marvel owns the character) while Jordan Peele's "Us" was the highest-grossing non-Disney film outright and the highest-grossing R-rated film.

I, like many of you don't mind seeing a movie with action or even a good horror movie like the "It" movies. I might even go see "Joker" soon since I do like Batman. However, I've long-noticed something missing from a lot of movies it seems: nudity.

Sadly, the major Hollywood studios are squeamish about showing skin simply because of the MPAA. Years ago, I saw a great documentary about the organization called "This Film is Not Yet Rated" and how the MPAA treats movies overall. The sad consensus is that if a movie contains even a split second of pubic hair, it gets an NC-17. But when it's loaded with the bloodiest, goriest violence known to mankind, it will still get the pirate rating of R (or, ARRRRRRR!).

Very true, there's a movie out now called "Hustlers" about strippers out now and it's rated R. It contains mostly female topless nudity, though reportedly, there's a scene with a penis in it. Unlike most movies about naked women - i.e. "Showgirls" and "Striptease"- this movie actually got great reviews and has done quite well at the box office, making $100 million so far.

The reality is that we live in a society where naked females are a bad thing. After all, the government raised indecency fines for broadcasters after the Janet Jackson nip-slip, but they don't do a goddamned thing when there's a mass shooting. Here in Grand Rapids, strip clubs became outlawed in 2006, but the crime rate has dramatically risen in recent years.

Look, I started reading Playboy when I was 13. Not long afterward, I picked up my first issue of the much-more-X-rated Club and I watched my first porn movie when I was I think 15. I've never raped a woman or did anything violent towards one. I've treated them always with respect, but maybe that's why I'm still single. Women tend to like drunks and wifebeaters. And by the time they want a guy like me, they've already had a kid or two or three with said loser and now, their private parts smell like a cow pasture thanks to constant childbirth.

The sad reality is that I think there's a reason why people go out and cause massive shooting massacres. They are loners and they feel defeated. They've done Tinder, Bumble and other dating sites and nothin' doin'. They realize that it's easier to go to the local gun store, buy an AR-15 and blast people's brains out than to get any woman to like them. Or maybe, they live too far from any local strip club, or maybe, they went to one and none of the dancers want to come to their table to convince them to go back for a lap dance.

It's sad but true. Sex, it seems is being demoted to internet porn sites and internet porn sites only. Yet, good 'ol blast-em-up, shoot-em-up violence is alive and well. Of course in this age of political correctness, women don't want to be cute and sexy, but rather overpowering people who don't need a man in their life. Of course, maybe that's also why less and less women are getting pregnant and the fact that Toys R Us went out of business.

My point is, is that the vagina is a good thing. Yet, because our media is controlled by Republican assholes and the MPAA leans right, they'll give you the thought that if you see any female nudity, you'll rape a young girl and leave her dead body at the town dump. Hell, AT&T are huge Republican donors. The sad truth is that looking at naked girls - I think - reduces stress in men. Even better is if that girl wants to fuck.

I do wonder if the gun lobby and the NRA has some control over the MPAA. If they do, it explains why we can't have nice things. If I ran the MPAA, I'd be more liberal-thinking. Yes, film producers can still make their little shooter pics and they'd still get an R. But if a film has TONS of nudity, it would still get an R. Realistic sex scenes, though, would get an NC-17.

We shouldn't just free the nipples, but we should free the slit, too.

Awwwww..... the big crybaby is crying over impeachment.

This afternoon, Drumpf was crying on Twitter that The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!

I love it that the religious schmucks LOVE this prick and he uses the word "bullshit" on Twitter. Talk about presidential! The reality is that he still LOST the popular vote in 2016 and the Congress that we FREELY ELECTED in 2018 is there to tell this asshole Cheeto shitlicker that time's up. There's way too much proof to get him kicked out of office. The sooner, the better.

Oh, and Rudy Guiliani's been subpoenaed. And guess what? He wants to sue Congress. Awwww! Sucks to be him. I love the fact that this is the asshole who shut down all the strip clubs in New York City and cheated on his wives, plus the fact that his children have estranged from him. Good 'ol Mr. Morals. Personally, I have ZERO respect for those who want to piss on the over-regulated adult entertainment industry. Him and Grand Rapids' cunt mayor Rosalynn Bliss both.

Today also, we learned about Bernie Sanders' heart troubles. You know, I hope he'll be back soon. Tragically, he's the only real hope for this country and for the Democrats. If Bernie runs this country with a bad heart, at least he'll have a better one than Drumpf's. Then again, FDR ran the nation in a wheelchair.

We can go on and on. The sooner Drumpf's out of office, the better. It's already sad that gas prices are on the rise and many Americans haven't had a raise in ten years. Change must come ASAP.

The man who uttered "grab 'em by the pussy" will hopefully have his nuts yanked off.

Once upon a time, there was a place were people went to that brought joy to them.

They were big, giant places loaded with stores, restaurants, movie theaters and some even had a carousel for the kids. Some were one story, some had two and some were even three or four stories tall. And most of them had acres of free parking.

Yes, we're talking about the great American shopping mall. For decades, they were the place people went to on a Saturday afternoon to relax and, well, shop. But thanks to the internet, many malls are turning into ghost towns. Here in America, the last mall was built in 2006. And even that mall, Pittsburgh Mills is almost empty.

In the last few years alone, many mall staples like Charlotte Russe, Payless ShoeSource and Deb have gone up to that big mall in the sky. Others, like Aeropostale, Pacific Sunwear and Sears have closed multiple locations due to bankruptcy. But other stores deserve to close simply because they are owned by assholes.

On Sunday, it was announced that trendy clothing retailer Forever 21 was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The chain plans to close 178 of its 800 stores.

Here in Grand Rapids, Forever 21 has two locations: Tanger Outlets and the remodeling Woodland Mall. They also have a location at Crossroads Mall in Kalamazoo.

Forever 21 was founded by South Korean immigrants Do Won Chang and his wife, Jin Sook Chang in 1984 in Los Angeles. The chain prided itself on selling trendy fashion at bargain prices. Many of their locations are around 38,000 square feet, making them junior anchors at many malls.

Now, I'm no fan of Forever 21 because a lot of the junk they sell comes from sweatshops. Plus, the Changs are Jebus freaks who notoriously treat their employees like shit. I read somewhere that they pay their workers maybe a buck or two over minimum wage at best. Now, I once had a Jebus freak boss for 10 and a half years. And like the Changs, he never gave me a raise and treated lesser people better than me. When he retired, my company was damn near bankrupt. I told his replacement about my situation, and a day later, I got a 75 cent raise. Since then, I've gotten HUGE raises.

Recently, I've seen a video of the conditions of a Forever 21 standalone store and there's a lot of trash on the outside of the building. To me, any business that has trash everywhere and poor conditions is the sign of workers who don't give a shit about their job or the lousy pay they get. 

To me, it's a shame that these pricks throw Jesus around and expect to make billions, which they did. But in the end, they lost four billion dollars within four years. The Changs are still worth $1.5 billion - more than me or you - but the sad reality is that when you pay your workers who have made all that money for you, well, fuck you.

Now, whether or not Forever 21 will survive Chapter 11 is anyone's guess. Personally, I hope they rot in hell and take Shoe Dept. - another Jebus freak mall giant - with them. When you're a Christian billionaire and pay your workers a pittance, you make the real Jesus cry.

"It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to Heaven", quoth the big man himself. Maybe, just maybe, Forever 21 will be Forever 35.

Is it me, or have Republicans gotten worse since the days of Eisenhower?

Last week alone, several Rethugs visited my former stomping groundg of northern Michigan. Betsy Devos visited Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City. So did Anthony Scaramucci. And even worse, Mike Pence simply blew his nose on the people of Mackinac Island by ordering a motorcade for himself. Now, for those who don't know much about Mackinac, all non-emergency motor vehicles have been banned form the island since the late 19th century. To me, Pence and his little parade of cars is like forcing a Muslim to eat bacon.

Well, thankfully and hopefully, the madness regarding all Repukes may be coming to an end sooner or later. On Tuesday, it was announced that because of his dealings with the Ukrainian president, the House was now looking into impeaching the sumbitch known as Drumpf.

Of course, Drumpf's got a trillion reasons why he should not be POTUS. Do we need to list them? I know, some of the (R)s are crying that presidents talking to the enemy is something that's been done forever. However, the fact that he might have taken info on Joe Biden from that president is an impeachable offense.

Look, this nightmare needs to end, the sooner the better. Every fucking Repuke president since Eisenhower has been the antichrist, plain and simple. It's time for universal healthcare, ending college debt and it's time to take charge regarding climate change. Let me say this: GRETA THUNBERG IS RIGHT. ANYBODY - ESPECIALLY REPUKES - WHO BASH HER ARE TOTAL ASSHOLES. A 16 YEAR OLD GIRL WITH AUTISM IS FAR MORE INTELLIGENT AND BRILLIANT THAN THE LIMP-DICKED SCUMBAG IN THE WHITE HOUSE. END OF STORY.

Time's up.

9.25.19 Hero of the Day: Sid Haig


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com.

A SPECIAL HERO OF THE DAY!
Name: Sid Haig
Age: was 80
Occupation: actor
Last Seen: in the Great Beyond
Awarded For: being a true friend to Hollywood

As Gary Lewis once sang, "Everybody Loves a Clown".

For ages, clowns have entertained the masses, especially children. Of course, there's Bozo the Clown, who was created in the 1940s by Disney animator and original voice of Goofy, Pinto Colvig. Eventually, he ended up in the hands of Larry Harmon, who marketed individual versions of the famous clown to several hundred TV stations in the mid-20th century. Obviously, the most-famous version was from WGN out of Chicago. Here in Grand Rapids, WZZM-TV had the distinction of having the last local Bozo in the United States.

There was Koko the Clown, created by Max Fleischer in the 1910s. He was created to showcase his then-state-of-the-art invention called the rotoscope. That contraption allowed animators to create life-like cartoons by tracing over live images. Koko and his sidekick Bimbo would later co-star with Betty Boop in the 1930s. Ironically, the aforementioned Pinto Colvig worked for Fleischer in the late 30s.

But yes, not all clowns are filled with love and kindness. And yes, most clowns scare the shit out of children instead of entertaining them. Not all clowns give kids a toy for throwing a ping pong ball into a bucket. Yes, I'm referring to Binky the Clown from Garfield and Friends, Krusty the Klown from The Simpsons, the Killer Klowns from Outer Space and yes, Pennywise.

And then there's Captain Spaulding. No, not Groucho Marx's character from the 1930 film "Animal Crackers", but the sinister clown from Rob Zombie's "House of 1000 Corpses" franchise. Sid Haig gave perfection to the mass murderer and patriarch to the Firefly family, played by Sheri Moon and Bill Moseley. It was the role that he was born for, decades after his career even began.

Born Sidney Mosesian in 1939, Sid's career skyrocketed because of a growth spurt he experienced as a teen. It affected his motor skills, so his parents put him in a dance school. In the end, he expanded into acting and even becoming a musician. As a matter of fact, he even had a hit on the pop charts in 1958 as a drummer with a band called the T-Birds called "Full House", which peaked at #4.

Sid - who got his stage name after his father, Haig Mosesian - first acted in a 1960 short film for Jack Hill, a man whom he had a deep association with in the 60s and 70s. He appeared in his blaxploitation films, such as "Coffy" and "Foxy Brown", both starring Pam Grier. His films included "Che!" and "The Don is Dead" both from director Richard Fleischer (Max's son, ironically), George Lucas' "THX 1138", the James Bond flick "Diamonds Are Forever" and many films for American International.

His TV credits included BatmanThe Dukes of Hazzard and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, his biggest TV role. In second place was the late 70s Filmation-produced children's series Jason of Star Command, where he played the evil villain Dragos.

By the early 90s, Haig was tired of acting. Most of his roles were forgettable Arab villains, given his Armenian heritage. He ended up becoming a hypnotherapist, but thanks to some folks who grew up watching his films, they saw the potential he had that other producers didn't.

In 1997, he made a comeback as a judge in Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" starring Pam Grier. However, another comeback was in the wings all because of a Zombie named Rob.

In 2003, the rocker gave Haig his best-known role of Captain Spaulding. As a young boy, the former Robert Cummings and his younger brother Michael - aka Spider One from Powerman 5000 - loved him on Jason of Star Command. So, it made sense for him to reboot his career even further. Evenmore, Captain Spaulding was Haig's best-known role.

"House of 1000 Corpses" was trashed by critics, but did well with audiences, enough for a sequel, "The Devil's Rejects". 'Rejects' did much better with critics and both films would go on to become cult favorites. Haig was now in his 60s and finally had the film role that would define him.

Recently, it was announced that Zombie would be making the third part in the series, "3 From Hell". However, while filming, Haig fell ill and was only able to be in part of the film. Last month at home, Haig had a fall and was rushed to the hospital. He developed a lung infection and on Saturday, he passed away at the age of 80.

Many paid tribute to Haig, including his widow, who posted a picture of her holding his hand for the last time. Rob Zombie broke the news of his death on social media.

Sadly, Haig was severely underrated throughout his career and definitely needed more attention. I've heard that off camera, he was a super guy and well-liked. Yes, he was an asshole when he was a clown, but at least it was a role he'll forever be known for.

Sid, say hi to Lugosi and Karloff for us.

9.23.19 Bee-otch of the Day: NBC

A few days ago, NBC executives told a new regular of Saturday Night Live that he's not ready for prime time.

Or 11:30, for that matter.

The network gave the boot to Shane Gillis, a young comedian who was going to join two other new cast members for the new season, which begins this Saturday. This after an old podcast of his surfaced where he used ethnic and homophobic slurs.

Gillis tweeted his thanks to SNL for considering him, though he called himself a MadTV guy anyway.

True, it's tough to defend somebody who tells Asians to stay in Chinatown. Yes, I think he was a prick for attacking people who don't deserve to be attacked because of their culture. However, he got canned from a show that had a coked-up Armenian man dressed up like a sword-swinging samurai 40 years ago. Let's not forget this and this, too. Let's also not forget the times they had whites portray blacks, like Adam Sandler's Bill Cosby and Darrell Hammond's Jesse Jackson.

Earlier today at work, I was looking at Facebook and saw sponsored ads from Boomerang, the cable network from AT&T that shows everything from Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Popeye, Hanna-Barbera and more. They proclaim that they have over 4500 episodes on their app. I'll betcha that they won't show the tail end of thisthis or this. Of course, Popeye had his problems with racism especially during WWII and yes, let's not forget who Tom and Jerry's owner was: a fat black woman named Mammy Two-Shoes.

This weekend, I was with my cousin in Detroit. Together, we watched Dave Chappelle's new Netflix special, "Sticks and Stones". Needless to say, Dave was on fire that whole hour. He talked about how when he was doing Chappelle's Show, the censor told him that he could not do a sketch that involved the gay slur "faggot" because he's not gay. Dave's response? "Well, I'm not a nigger, either!"

Whites uttering the n-word is nothing new. Bill Maher called himself a "house nigger" on his Real Time show and ended up apologizing. Hulk Hogan used that word repeatedly in an audio recording and was fired from the WWE. But even his boss, Vince McMahon was caught using that word in a sketch and, well, Hulk was forgiven and rehired.

Look, I can go on and on about all this. But think of this: on the fourth hour of The Today Show, guess who just happens to be the co-host? Jenna Bush Hager! You know, a woman who was busted for underage drinking years ago? A woman whose asshole father's stupidity killed 3,000 people on 9/11, 4,000 more in all the fake wars he started and damn near collapsed this country? Sorry, but if I have a weekday off, I ain't watching that shit. If it's 10 a.m. I'll watch Let's Make a Deal.

There's a reason why Jenna hosts Today's fourth hour. NBC is trying to siphon some of Fox Propaganda Channel's ratings. However, it's backfiring. Remember Megyn Kelly's comments about blackface and how it got her canned? Same with Shane Gillis: for years, SNL had been pissing off conservatives because of Alec Baldwin's Drumpf. So, they got another white dude for the show's cast. With Baldwin's announcement that he's quitting Drumpf and now, Gillis' firing, it would make one wonder if SNL will be worth watching this year.

Thankfully, comedians still have a target, and it's a demographic that's quickly becoming a minority: those who are white, Republican and/or Christian. Those who wear their red MAGA hats and holding signs that read "Get a Brain, Morans!" are now easy targets. And sadly, these pricks get angry when the so-called 'librul media' picks at them.

Look, we're not perfect. I've said stupid shit and so have you, the reader. Man is five, the devil is six and God is seven. Sometimes, I say the wrong shit out of anger. I'm only human and so is Shane Gillis. As somebody who grew up in lily-white northern Michigan, I've had my experiences with people of other nationalities and creeds. Yes, I can joke about them and get myself in further horseshit, but the truth is, there's only good and bad in our society. Just because a black man jerked off in front of me years ago doesn't mean that all blacks and all gays are like that. Just because the asshole who broke up my family and dragged my mother into bankruptcy is a Polack doesn't mean that all people of Polish descent are assholes, too. Hell, the valedictorian at my high school just happened to Polish. And also, just because there's people who call themselves Christian and treat people like shit doesn't mean that all Christians are like that. There's a myriad of Christians who swear, watch porn, smoke pot and so on who just happen to be better Christians who cheat on their spouses, rape children and fuck poor people out of their money. And yet, people still give them their hard-earned money because, well, God forgives.

My point is, is that I think Shane Gillis will be back on his feet if the entertainment business will let him. True, times have changed, but everything all depends on who will spend money to watch him do stand up or whatever TV show or movie will hire him. If the pedophile who once performed Elmo on Sesame Street can get work, so can Gillis.

Let's remember something: Bill Cosby never wanted to offend anybody and look where he is now.
