SONY, AMC et al

Chicken-Shit.

Lilly-Livered.

Yellow-bellied.

Craven.

Cowardly.

Spineless.

I don't care what your lawyers say. I don't care what your insurance company says.

You stand up to bully-boys and you spit in their faces.

That's what grownups do.

That's what Americans* do. (Or used to do!)

Shame. Shame. Shame.

*Yes I know that Sony is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Not the point, here, people. And, besides, we're also talking about all the biggest American cinema chains that decided not to show The Interview, apparently out of fear of the Fat Boy.

Then Again...

...sometimes the BEST stuff is in the comments:

Is anyone else noticing a theme here?

Racial truth- common occurrence = White men target black youth: media narrative re: Zimmerman v. St. Hoodie >> not guilty >> narrative DEBUNKED

Racial truth- common occurrence = White cops kill black men for no reason: media narrative re: De Blasio’s Cigarette Police v.Heart-Attack-Pending Garner >> no true bill >> narrative DEBUNKED

Sexual politics truth- common occurrence = Republican college men are rapers: media narrative re: Dunham v. Republican Barry >> uh oh >> narrative DEBUNKED

Sexual politics truth- common occurrence = frat boys are gang rapers: media narrative re: Jackie v. the Broken Glass Coffee Table >> oh man this is too easy >> narrative not just DEBUNKED but in actual shards.

If we used the “reasonable man” standard, wouldn’t one say these common occurrances must in fact be UNcommon?

Hot Air comments on the "Jackie" false frat rape story in Rolling Stone.

"The Young"



"Very good and honest look into a mind of an old guy.

Now if only the posters here would be honest enough that they don't know jack about the young and their experiences. "

The above quote was a comment on this article: They Made Me Write About Lena Dunham by P.J. O'Rourke.

It was a typical O'Rourke article, pretty much slamming le Dunham with snark and humor...as you would expect.

Our intrepid commenter obviously believes that if you are 67 - O'Rourke's age, that you don't know "jack" about The Young.

I read this thinking....where does he think old people come from? Space? Fully wrinkled and grayed?

And then I wondered..."God, was I that stupid? Are all young people that stupid?"

"Child," I wanted to say, "I see you have not exactly thought that statement through. You see, it's really quite the opposite. We 'old guys' actually have been The Young. And having been them, we know 'their experiences' personally and intimately. First person experiential knowledge."

"But you, "The Young," I wanted to continue, "have never been 'old guys'...have never been where we 'old guys' have been, have never seen what we have seen, never learned what we have learned, therefore can't know jack about us or our experiences."

"So," I wanted to conclude, "...if anyone's a stupid clueless asshole....uh.......that'd be YOU, chief."

But I had to "register" at the Daily Beast to do it...

...so I didn't.

All Dogs Go To Heaven

Ah....Saturday morning. Enough time to casually read the news and opinion pages.

I ended up on a story regarding Pope Francis' supposed comments about animals going to heaven.

While the story is terribly inaccurate, misquoted,  and wrongly attributed as it turns out, the subject is of some import to many people.

What was most interesting is that the comments section was full of atheists who, as one, vigorously insisted that no such thing is possible because heaven, naturally.....such a silly notion of primitive savages and Dark Age peasants.....does not exist.

Suggesting that "all living creatures" can end up in Paradise, brought up the inevitable conversation about Ebola viruses, mosquitoes, snakes, (which for some reason some people seem to hate and fear beyond reason—I'm a fan, so I don't get it)...and spiders...(another unhealthy fear, it seems to me), being "living creatures" so......"do they go to heaven too?"

Asked with a sneering smirk. And with utter confidence that no one could imagine a place where all living creatures, including hyenas, fleas and scorpions could peacefully coexist.

And suddenly it hit me. The problem with atheists is that they have no imagination.

None of them could imagine a place where every creature just "got along" with every other; where eating each other wasn't necessary anymore.

They automatically assumed that silly little hillbilly believers would choose only their personal pets and favorite animals to be included in heaven, but reject the idea that those animals they fear or think of as pests or enemies were included. They gave absolutely no credit to other humans to understand or IMAGINE how paradise might accommodate all without conflict, fear, disgust or danger.

One specifically said "what you see is what you get". Now that's a sad thought, indeed.

I guess love, hope and dreams don't exist for this poor fellow any more than heaven does.

Now that I think on it, maybe the reason people are atheists...is that they have no imagination.

That's a whole new way of thinking about it.

So I'm going to. I'll be back.

Note on previous post...

In the same way that UKIP wants out of the European Union.... a free, independent and British Britain...

("UKIP is a patriotic party that promotes independence: from the EU, and from government interference. We believe in free trade, lower taxes, personal freedom and responsibility."*)


...USIP wants out of the Washington D.C. Central Government Tyranny in order to form a more perfect government according to the Constitution of the United States of America; free, independent and American States.

I think it works.

*Does that sound familiar, or what??

American UKIP?

You've heard of UKIP? United Kingdom Independence Party.

They are what we Americans would call a "Conservative" party; preserving and conserving British (dare I say "English"!) culture, traditions and freedoms.

Here's their website

Since it's pretty clear the Republicans don't, as a party, represent those of us who seek to preserve and conserve our American heritage, culture, traditions, and founding liberty.

Since most of them are nothing more than political hacks...concerned only their own re-election for the perks, money and prestige. 

Since they are Liberal Lite.; too afraid of rocking the boat to do anything that might remotely be considered patriotic...

I think it's time for USIP. United States Independence Party.

(I toyed with American Independence Party* - AIP..but being called "APES" seemed like a bad idea. :-)

/gun

*Besides, there's a "American Independent Party", already, right?

Race. Again. Snooze.

How tired are you of blacks "protesting"?

See, here's the thing.

I don't wanna be mean, and I know I've said this before, but I don't care about blacks. I know it's hard for them to understand what I mean when I say that...

...but I don't think about blacks. I don't worry about blacks. I don't care about blacks one way or the other.

There is a black woman with whom I am friendly. I care about her. But I don't care about blacks as a race, as a group, as a "minority". I don't think about them, I don't care what's going on with them. I'm not interested. I don't find the subject compelling.

I don't care about their self-esteem. I don't care about their nutrition. I don't care about their poverty. I don't care about their problems. I don't care about their success. I don't care about their failure.

I don't hate them, I don't want to discriminate against them, I don't want to lynch them.

I don't CARE about them at all. They don't enter my mind in the normal course of events on any given day.

I don't give Vietnamese or Puerto Ricans or Guatamalans or Tibetans - as groups - much thought either.

Nope, don't care.

I find it so odd that black people assume we white people spend a lot of time hating them—as a group...as a race...when, in fact, we white people as a whole don't spend any time thinking about black people at all...with the obvious three exceptions...

1) the wild-eyed white pride supremacist extremists who believe that blacks so inferior to whites that white should never associate with them. (I've never actually met one of these)

and

2) the wild-eyed white guilt supremacist extremists who believe that blacks are so inferior to white people that they need nanny-like white saviors to create a world in which blacks are not asked to live up to the standards of behavior required of every other race on earth - because they are constitutionally incapable of doing so; because they cannot be held responsible for their own actions, choices, behaviors, any more than small white children can. (I've met hundreds of these. They abound in colleges, the Media, Hollywood, and among professional agitators, Marxists, and Progressives.)

and


3) White victims of black racist violence (they are legion). 

Michael, Trayvon, NYC big fat asthma dude.

I DON'T CARE. And I don't care that blacks care. I don't care that blacks are trying to make it into a big deal. It's not. And all their rioting doesn't make me care. It just makes me think many blacks are dimwittedly unable to apply logic to a perfectly straightforward event; or alternatively, evil and willfully criminal...seeking an excuse to be violent and lawless.

I don't think this is the effect they are looking for...I could be mistaken, of course.

When blacks stop killing blacks by the truckload—on a daily basis, or at least attempt to address it as though it matters, then maybe I'll listen in on the conversation. Until then, all I hear is blah, blah, blah, blah...

Stop committing violent crimes, don't violently fuck with the police. What the hell is wrong with you?

Stop acting so stupid and ignorant that you demonstrate that #1 and #2 guys above have been right all along.
