I don’t get it

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

What exactly is the appeal of Robin Williams and how has he managed to become rich and famous?

He’s spastic and quite stupid. I’ve wasted far more time than I care to admit watching him – in movies, TV shows and doing stand-up – and I cannot recall a single time that idiot made me laugh.

He’s ignorant, obnoxious, dumb and never, ever funny. Funny requires intelligence. He reminds me a lot of Jonathan Winters except that, on occasion, Winters was humorous.

Yet he has the nerve to mock the president, implying that George W. Bush is stupid.

I’m no fan of the current president and it frustrates me to no end that I keep finding myself defending him when I didn’t vote for him and don’t support most of what he’s done. But when Mork starts mocking him…

Is there anything besides the weather in Southern California that has any worth?

Heads up

I’ll probably be offline and “out of pocket’ (as the corporate dweebs say) for the next few days. I’ll be checking email as much as I can, but that’s not likely to be much.

Those of you that have my cell phone number are free to use it. Those that don’t have it… I’m too busy to talk to you.

Doctors are stupid (Deux)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

I have nothing to add.

Go read this comment from someone I don’t know and has never commented here before.

He provides anecdotal evidence from personal experience as well as some of the evidence that I [was/am] either too preoccupied or too lazy to look up again. I love to remind people that doctors kill more people than “guns” do. (I put it in quotes there because in the history of gunpowder, a gun has never killed a human being by itself. Take special note of the word “it” in the word “itself.”)

Gross misunderstanding

Or is it gross manipulation?

Today, while sitting next to a communist, George W. Bush said, “…[China's] society must become less export driven and more consumer driven.”

As it stands right now, the USA is the only superpower in the world and we control everything. It won’t remain that way. The primary, immediate reason is just what Dubya said today. Americans are mostly consumers.

His remarks are retarded.

Consumerism is the problem, not the solution. The Chinese are smart enough to know this.

May I remind you this is the same president that right after 9/11 recommended that the best response was for Americans to go shopping?

Credit where it’s due

I don’t always agree with Ann Coulter (though I always find her entertaining). She tends to be a bit too GOP for me sometimes. But she nailed it in this column.

Go and see wisdom.
