The ring that makes me want to puke...

America, our priorities are whacked.

I just saw a "news" story that Kim Kardashian is getting engaged. Go Kim. The story was actually more about her engagement ring which costs over $2,000,000!!!!

Yes, folks. Over $2 million dollars. In an age where schools are going without supplies and there are children starving in our own backyard(s) and we are supposed to swallow this without choking? Why don't you rub our faces in the excrement of our pride while you're at it?

You know how long it would take me to afford a $2 million dollar ring, working at my current salary? 40 freaking years!!!

I've been at my job for 11 years already, and it would still take me that long. What do I do? Nothing much. Just a teacher of your children. Nothing worth a basketball player's salary.

Way to go America. If you ask one more time why we can't recruit good teachers to the schools, you can go choke on Kim's ring.


  1. I totally agree with you. I also think that the average guy spends way to much on an engagement ring..what are they saying now? 20% of his yearly salary? you could live for like 2 months in Thailand on that.
