I am a little angry today.
So what else is new?
I have received a second email from an anonymous source about the “Ronaldo’s Son” blogs. The first was a simple admonishment about being harsh.
Fine, I sent back a “Sorry you feel that way” email and asked them to post on the blog page. I prefer to make a public scene.
The second was more, and I take it personal.
Despite my request that I would rather you comment on the blog on the actual blog page, Ms. X has elected to continue emailing.
Then I will rebut all the lines of your email here.
First of all, eat me.
I have never read anything this pathetic in my life. Every soft-headed platitude in the book or books is there.
“An addict is not responsible for his actions.”
Two things. First, Ronaldo never said his son was an addict, I never said his son was an addict. Second? Bull! We are all responsible for our actions. An addict always has the option of getting help.
“Walk a mile in his shoes before you judge him.”
I could be in the Battan Death March in his Nikes before I would shit on my father to the degree this piece of garbage has.
“Judge not lest ye be judged.” Ah, biblical. Mathew. Sermon on the mount. It was part of a sermon on ostentation and not meant to be a “get out of jail free” sinners card.
The really interesting thing is that, for all of these dark and dour crimes, you assume he is an addict and auto forgive all of his actions.
What about me?
How do you know this isn’t my 11th out of 12 steps or something? Where is the automatic assumption that I too, am an addict. Where the hell is my auto-forgiveness?
(According to MyAddiction.com Caffeine is a really serious one too. All of my behavior is now golden. Yah!)
Back on subject.
I know a little something about addiction. I have family that is in the rehab biz and the general consensus is that taking responsibility for your actions is in there somewhere. It is also one of the twelve steps.
But lets look at all the people you have turned your back on in favor of the Demon Son.
Ronaldo. The meth lab on the premises gets his retirement-funding house seized. It also is a huge betrayal of his parent. (This is a biblical issue too, or did you miss that?)
The girls. Smuggled into this country and forced to do drugs and make porn films. A sizeable portion of their life is ruined. I hope they get some peace down the road on this one. I see them as victims.
The parents of the girls. They will most likely find out at some point. Could be the biggest nightmare a parent could face.
Anyone in the film distribution chain that is simply trying to make a living. They have been given films that contain illegal actors. I assume the economy sucks all over and they can’t afford hits to their bottom line either.
Because actions speak louder than words, I have a challenge for you. When Ronaldo’s son gets out of jail, take him and Charles Manson as room mates.
Let me know how that goes.
You may as well go fishing with Fredo, because you are dead to me.
So, to sum up, take your excuses, your platitudes, your obvious self-issues, your blind eye forgiveness to any crime that does not directly affect you…..
And stick them. In the biblical sense.
Have a nice day…………..ass.
