I don't really think his T-shirt and Button sales really match up with the 40+ Million he would make off his show.

If anything the government should step in and make CBS take him back, we're in a recession and we could use the tax money.

I think it will end well for him, why wouldn't it?

He's the star of one of the biggest TV shows on television right now, he holds the chips. He's a multi-millionaire who is a star of one of the largest TV shows airing today, he has the media in his pocket (as in, he can manipulate it as he wishes), and he's currently making a great deal of money out of this whole thing.

As for being in control of himself, why isn't he in control of himself? He seems to be in perfectly okay control for me. Of course, the media will tell you otherwise, and that's why it's funny. They are there to tell you as a viewer and edit their interviews/reports as the media to make him look like a crazy person.

In reality, he's a multi-millionaire who is making a great deal of money out of this whole media thing while he is in dispute with the business he is working with.

It would be like you and your employer having such an issue, and instead of you not going to work and not making money, you're making a substantial amount of it on the side because of the whole thing.

It's a very smart move and Charlie is at home smiling from ear to ear.

No, he's not making as much as he was (he will most definitely get his job back, he already knows it), but what he's doing is making a great deal of money on the side while he's currently holding out for his millions of pay (not that he doesn't already have millions).

He gets to sit home, not work, wait for his lawyers to get it all sorted out and get him back to work, all the while taking in a great deal of money selling merchandise and making deals on the side with other companies/businesses.

It's SO easy to see passed all this media stuff, it's really silly.

His job's not coming back. Niether are his Kids. He's pissed off people with more money for lawyers than him.

All of the women he has paid to stay quiet are ready to talk.

How can it end well?

I'm drinking some Bud lights and celebrating Syracuse's victory over Virginia in a #1 vs. #2 showdown at the Carrier Dome in lacrosse earlier today. Fukking love Syracuse Lax.

Now watching Duke-UNC in basketball to lead up to Texas-Baylor and then followed by Strikeforce later on. Pretty much a sweet sports day for me.

You don't think the star of one of the biggest TV shows isn't coming back? Do you realize that the show isn't going to air, the station won't be making money, and everyone invested in Two and A Half Men is losing money right now? How long do you think they are going to keep this up?

Charlie and his lawyer both know that they are going to take him back, anyone who thinks of it logically outside of the media knows he's going to get his job back. Too many people are going to lose money because of it, and when Charlie is off making bank without having to work for them, they aren't sitting there going "Charlie will come to realize he needs us", no, he's already making bank with this whole thing while the company/people that have invested into the show are losing money.

Also, he'll get his kids back. Even if he doesn't, how many divorced men have custody of their kids? Not many. That's just part of life and has nothing to do with his show/his money/career options.

Charlie is winning right now, not sure if you know that, but he is, 'cause while he's out there making money right now, everyone else is losing it, and they are going to pull him right back in and make a deal with him when all this is over.

As for what I'm doing, I need to eat! Going to get me some food soon, maybe pizza.. again.

Getting ready to watch Strikeforce. Feels good to finally be able to relax and watch MMA.
