Obligatory Imus Post

April 14, 2007

I can’t believe I’m un-retiring over this story. I also can’t believe I consider myself “retired” when I only blogged for about a year. And it was a BLOG for god’s sake… not a job. No one payed me. Hardly anyone even read this thing. There was nothing to retire from!

Regardless I am back. And over the story that should not be.

First I simply have to point point out the disturbing similarity between Don Imus and “Throw Momma From the Train” star… Anne Ramsey. Does no one else see this?

Now I’ve never actually listened to Imus for more than a few seconds at a time, and I have zero respect for DJ’s and radio personalities in general. They are the used-car salesmen of the airwaves. Imus’s comments were stupid and insulting. And I’m sure that when the Rutgers women’s basketball team all huddled around their radio to tune in to Imus’s show that morning, they were shocked and hurt by his words. So he apologized. Does that make it right? No, not really. but there’s not much else he can do. So he was fired. Does that help? Well, it absolves NBC, but he’ll likely get a job elsewhere when this all blows over. But what else can he do?

So why are we still talking about it? Why does CNN continue to spend days on this? Why is every “black leader” making airtime on the subject? And why am I ending my 8 month silence to speak out on this of all things?

Indeed.

Well we burned through everyone being pissed at Imus (the news covered that to death). We’re somewhere in the middle of the backlash against the trumped up outrage by “black leadership” (the news and bloggers are furiously squawking about this still). And we’re probably just about starting the backlash against the media for over-hyping and over-covering this story. Stewart said it already of course. But now I’m hearing others as well. Stupid media. Always cramming their agenda down our throat.

Well wake up people, this is just as ridiculous as griping about the exorbitant salaries of pro athletes and movie stars. This stuff doesn’t exist in a vacuum. If no one watched CNN’s 24 hour Imus-watch, then there would be no 24 hour Imus watch. If people refused to pay $50 a ticket, A-Rod wouldn’t be making $6 million a year. If people didn’t thirst for celebrity news with such vigor, then the Enquirer wouldn’t exist and there wouldn’t have been paparazzi chasing Diana in Paris.

In this case… if no one is there to hear it, the falling tree won’t make a sound.

You did it. We did it. Tired of endless coverage? Turn it off. You have no one to blame but yourselves for the things that happen in this world. Take some responsibility for once! You can’t blame people for filling a need that we create. “Black Leadership” (and I use quotes here because it is a self-appointed title and I think it’s insulting to black people to believe they all uniformly hail these nuts as their kings (pun intended))… “black leadership” basically gets handed an open mic on a national stage… you think they should pass? Everyone’s talking about Imus’s comments and their reaction to the comments and the reaction to the reactions… and you think the media should just give us real news instead? Well ask for it!! If enough people wanted real news we would have it. But we don’t. If enough people wanted to hear the truth about tough issues, we would have visionary leaders in government, not just the best liars. We are all to blame.

Do something about it or stop your bitching.

And yes I am aware of the irony that most people who find this article will find it because they have typed in “Imus” into a search engine in the hopes of finding the latest news or opinion on this scandalous non-story. To those idiots I have just one thing to say…

“Thank you for visiting”.


What Ever Happened to Conservatism?

February 19, 2007

From the “Clowns-to-the-left-of-me, Jokers-to-the-right; here-I-am, don’t-know-what-I-should-do” Department
I decided to dust off my Two-Headed-Monster hat to ask a question that has been bothering me since at least 2004.

Where are the Conservatives?

Why have they gone into hiding?

Too Many Secrets?

August 21, 2006

From the “Setec Astronomy” Department
I’m in the midst of reading a book by Dan Brown (the writer of the DaVinci Code) and I’m convinced that I never want to read another Dan Brown novel, ever.
Anyways, the book it titled Digital Fortress; I’m only 20% through the book, and I’m sure there are some plot twists awaiting me (I HOPE there are, because the plot and facts are awful!); but the premise is the NSA must deal with an activist coder who creates an unbreakable encryption code.

Now, this is deadly, and will lead to pure anarchy if this is mass produced to everyone-and-their-grandmother, because it will empower criminals and evil-doers to communicate freely, without fear of being uncovered.

As I’m reading this book, it is the EXACT OPPOSITE PLOT of the Movie Sneakers.

Governments Keep Too Many Secrets

You gotta love Hollywood. Okay, no you don’t but our on-the-spot colleages at Independent Sources keeps an eye on Hollywood for us.
So when drunken-villiage-idiot Mel Gibson was charged with DUI and Disorderly conduct, what does he get?

FEMA is a four letter word

August 17, 2006

The long list of FEMA failures, wastes, and incompetence continues. This one is simply mind-boggling. FEMA is, to me, a great example of why non-security related government agencies should be privatized.

(If this is old news to you, it’s because I thought I had posted this on Tuesday…. grrrr.)


Look Who’s Blogging Now

August 13, 2006

This just is too good to pass up. The president of Iran has a blog now. Lately I’ve been toying with hanging up my blogging shoes and now finding that I share a hobby with the Leader of one corner of the axis of evil may just be the sign I’ve been looking for. Now I’ve seen everything. Can a MySpace account be far behind? Will Al Qaeda start using YouTube to distribute it’s videos?

Here’s a post I translated from one of his recent entries…

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Just been busy killing zionists and putting White-Out over Israel on all my globes. Ah… such is my so called life. But here’s a cool site to tide you over until I post again. Many thanks, and don’t forget to click my ads.

And just for some color on his readers, I translated some of the comments too…

Badazz32 says: Dude, your blog sucks.

earle says: Nice site guy. Many thanks for your work. Buy Cialis.


The Great Divide

August 9, 2006

You know that rift in American politics? It’s getting wider.

Last night, incumbent Joe Lieberman lost the democratic primary for the Conneticut Senatorial seat to the more liberal Ned Lamont. At the same time, incumbent Michigan Republican Joe Schwartz lost his primary to his more conservative challenger.

I don’t know what else to say… other than “why am I in this handbasket?”

Any takers? Trend or mirage?
