This week, we have two clear examples of people who simply can’t control themselves:
Bob Beckel VS Michael Suh and Nicole Germack
Let’s start with Bob.
According to the mainstream media, and a few nutty liberal politicians, Bob should be fired for “racial” slurs.
He got pretty mad on THE FIVE (FOX’s TV SHOW) about Chinese people, and just blurted out this:
“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” he said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — er, Chinese people — how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us.”
And Bob did NOT stop there! Listen to the rest of the tape to hear the rest. Why— Bob even accuses the Chinese of making cheap toys and poisoning our pets!
Even if it IS true, was that any reason for him to offend the Chinese like that? I…am…shocked.
Actually, the Chinese also like to garden at night, and keep their American neighbors awake. Tonight I saw my Chinese neighbor outside down on his knees planting SOMETHING in his back yard…with his porch light on.
“Why do you think he’s PLANTING at night?” I asked my husband, as we continued to walk the dogs.
“Maybe that’s his wife’s body.”
They also do all their cooking in the garage, and they smell up the neighborhood with soy sauce.
I am SO glad that Bob didn’t mention those racists things because Bob just starting dating a new girl. No, it’s not the first time Bob Beckel has just not been able to keep his opinions to himself. He once called white people…”Crackers.”
And then we have Michael Suh and Nicole Germack of Newark. It seems, they wanted to have sex on the roof. They JUST couldn’t control themselves.
The officer told the couple to stop, but police say they continued for approximately 15-20 seconds before stopping. Both are facing charges of Resisting Arrest, Lewdness, Indecent Exposure, Loitering and Conspiracy.
Thinking back on all the strange places that I have felt the uncontrollable urge, I’m feel lucky to be sitting here and typing this fine work of literary magnificent for you fine people. I’m so glad I got myself under control, and not a minute too late it seems.
So..who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
This is a hard one. On the one hand, what Bob said, most people would consider just an ‘opinion’ not racist. And an opinion based on facts. If that was a racist comment, than Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch brothers should be considered racist. Harry Reid should be fired then too.
Bob has every right to express his opinion, by the Constitution. if we have to listen to Harry Reid, than Bob has every right to say he doesn’t like the Chinese.
On the other hand…WHY were people looking UP to a roof to watch a couple having sex?
Maybe Michael’s apartment was hot. MAYBE they thought no one could see them up there.
Maybe…these really ARE Rome’s last days.
Maybe that’s why Michael Suh (Who is Chinese) was having sex with Nicole on the roof.
Maybe he was hacking into her computer.
Hey, it’s a dangerous world out there and I say the Nobody’s Fool Award goes to—-
California state Sen. Ted Lieu (D) who called Beckel’s comments “racist”
“We should all be alarmed by the racist, xenophobic comments by Fox News host Bob Beckel,” said Lieu. “His comments have no place in America, and this is at least the second time he has used racial slurs. He must resign immediately.”
Congratulations Sen. Ted Lieu! You win the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week for being such a moron.
And since I’m calling a Chinese guy a moron, I must be racist.
Move your cracker butt over Bob, give me some room.
You might have already seen this. One thousand high school students starting singing in a hotel, and … I’m so glad some one thought to go get their camera.
My husband wasn’t feeling well last night, so for the first time in my life, I did not go to anywhere to see fireworks. But I did go to the pool, and was chased in earnest on my way out, by some lady who looked as if had the most dire news:
“We just need to raise the utility taxes 7 percent.” the lady said. Good god. We fought a WAR over taxes this day in 1776. What a day to ask.
By the look on her face, things were dire. She stuck a flyer in my face which said that due to budget cuts, not only will the Fireworks display be gone forever, but our police and fire department would have to make cuts also.
Yes, my little town has become Detroit. We will cut everything but big government bureaucrats and their big overloaded pensions.
My friend, who saw the horror in her face, fell for it. “You know, we haven’t had to pay this tax for years.” she said.
We pay some of the biggest property taxes in Missouri. We also have the BIGGEST school district in Missouri, so you know, it’s full of teachers, administrators…democrats, all making big bucks.
More than 67 percent of our property taxes goes to the school, which is almost 75 percent black, and YET, the state lottery is suppose to support them too. And they want more.
Some of these people make over $230,000 a year. And our schools are horrible. I know, I went to them. (It’s one of the reasons my spelling is so bad.) So did my son.
Using FEAR and PITY, is an old political trick. Obama is using the children on the border right now…as a weapon.
As I read the headlines tonight on Drudge, its says we are a divided nation. Okay, but you sure couldn’t tell that today.
And yet…I did notice two things about this 4th that I have never noticed before:
I watched the celebrations in Washington D.C. and New York. In song, and spirit, it was one of the MOST Patriotic I’ve seen in years. They even said the Pledge of Allegiance with GOD left in! And in my neighborhood, where fireworks are not allowed, all around there were so many fireworks in the sky, smoke-filled the streets.
Everybody broke the law. What were the police going to do? Arrest them all? I loved it.
While, I think, in some small way, it was a good sign–in their own small way the people who put on these programs decided to go back to the America values of our traditions—–My husband said, “It’s all about false hope.” And he could be right. Tonight I noticed that my cable station added about 30 Spanish-speaking channels…not much hope for “One nation, under god.” with that is there?
Sometime this weekend, Obama will be wining and dining “illegals” who join the military. I guess American Citizens are not longer joining up. He is going full force with letting everyone who can get in, come in.
And where do we go to stop this invasion, brought to us to destroy our way of life by our own government?
Maybe our founders had the answer: Give the power, back to the states.
And that’s why I include this scene from the HBO series, John Adams.
The words, still stand. All we need to do is resurrect them.
Right after Obama first came into office, Obama made this great speech about all the things he was going to do with the $787 billion dollars that Congress just gave him, which INCLUDED, he was going to use that money to rebuild our infrastructure.
So…here it is, six years later, no infrastructure has been done anywhere, including our electrical grid which needs protection from an EMP attack, (And by the way, that would cost LESS than a billion) and now he is saying that CONGRESS will not give him more money to build the infrastructure.
Those mean bullies in Congress.
Yes, Congress is going to keep America from fixing the infrastructure.
Uh…Barry…Where did all that money go? It went to the unions, to Solyndra, to all his buddies, including Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law who got $737 million of it.
Not s smidgen of it.
After six years, we know how Obama works. He creates fear, he creates crisis’, he crushes businesses, free enterprise, and freedom…and when it all blows up in his face, he just blames it on the other guy.
And then he comes BACK to promise that he will save us all, it’s that other guy whose messing up..not him.
Obama now blames the Republicans for the crisis on the border. And yes, Obama made that crisis.
But there is more to it than just creating more democratic voters and overwhelming the welfare system.
I was listening to a talk show the other day, and one lady, I thought, really hit the mark on the illegals flooding our borders. She said the reason they are flooding our country with illegals, is to get rid of local government.
Makes sense. She was right. To truly rule, you have to control at the local level. It’s George Orwell, 1984. Obama means to have complete control, but he can’t let us know that, and that’s why he keeps making flippant jokes about it.
I was watching Bill Ayers on Megan Kelly tonight, and thought— Some people just never got over the sixties. Bill Ayers, reminds me of so many people back then. The hatred they had for Nixon, the hatred for the war. Heck, I was one of them, although, I was smart enough to realize that smoking dope, and having ‘free’ sex was really stupid. And that business was a good thing, I just didn’t trust our government, and I still don’t. (Ronald Reagan being the exception.)
On that, many American, including me, can agree with him.
But that’s where Bill Ayer’s logic stops. The man is a criminal. So he bombed the Pentagon? What makes him any different from the terrorist that flew into it on 9/11?
(Well Bill, then leave for God’s sake. Move to China.)
All my friends got on the liberal bandwagon in the sixties. And some of them never got off. And that’s how I look at Bill Ayers and Bill and Hillary Clinton. While they claim to be ‘progressives’ to me, they NEVER came out of the sixties. They bought that communistic propaganda, lock, stock, and barrel.
Sometime in the seventies, I started reading about communism. I realized that the communist had infiltrated America in the sixties, (by their OWN admission) and they got a foothold in our schools, and now, they are running the country. The communists have ALWAYS been here. They just got their big feet finally planted around 1963. Only, they call themselves ‘progressives.’ There is nothing ‘progressive’ about communism. Redistribution, doesn’t work.
Bill Ayers tonight compared himself to the revolutionary founders who he said, ‘used violence’ to protest. He forgets his history. The British sent the military into ordinary people’s homes.
Nobody in America wanted to go to war with Britain. It was the dirty boot of tyranny that forced us.
Bill Ayers didn’t like the Vietnam war. While Nixon, LBJ, and Kennedy, all got us into Vietnam, and the war was to most of us, uncalled for since America had NOT been attacked, Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground preferred violence, was directed against American people. HE was not being personally attacked by the end of a rifle by his own government.
The man is too much of a coward to fight. (Yes, I have a fantasy of a good Navy Seal dragging him off to sea.) It takes a brave man, (Like Ted Cruz) to stand in front of the whole world and say, “This is wrong.” Bill Ayers is not Martin Luther King. He’s not even MS. Piggy.
Anyway, this 4th, when things seem darkest: When it looks as if Obama’s big ‘progressive’ “I will go it alone!” foot is out to destroy the very fundamental things that has made this country great—–
THIS is the time when we should all celebrate our American heritage with flags everywhere. Remember, the progressive WANT you to think— America is dead.
Yeah. Sure. I’m from Missouri…you have to SHOW ME that’s it’s a fact.
I hope Americans everywhere FLAUNT their flags in Obama’s face…and remember the last warning of George Orwell:
“Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people.”
Nothing short of honest politicians, is impossible–let’s think back:
A newspaper editor in 1865 told his readers, “Well-informed people know that it is impossible to transmit the voice over wires and that, were it possible to do so the thing would have no practical value.”
(So would say Obama with the ‘invention’ of Fox News, but too bad.)
On the day the Wright Brothers first took wing, newspapers refused to report the event because their editors simply could not bring themselves to believe it had happened. Basically because a famous American astronomer, Simon Newcomb, had assured the world that “No possible combination of known substances, known forms of machinery and no forms of force, can be united in a practical machine by which man shall fly long distances.”
Another elite expert said, not long after that, that is was “Nothing less than feeble-mindedness to expect anything to come of the horseless carriage movement. Six years later the one-millionth Ford rolled off the assembly line.
(It’s amazing what the feeble-minded can do if you give them a chance.)
And the discoverer of the atom, Ernest Rutherford, said in 1933, that the energy in the atom’s nucleus would never be released, but nine years later: the first chain reaction.
And so, I keep hoping for air cars. Several men have invented cars that run on just the air around us…and there are already several ‘cars’ that fly like planes.
It could be a whole new world..
Nevertheless: almost all modern inventions were invented in America: where the American Dream of creating something new is what drove the genius, and freedom was its fuel.
Take away freedom of the individual. You take away inventions.
In the meantime, Nobody Suggests that it’s time to ‘invent’ a way to put politicians in jail, so we can get back to the important (And may I say…AMERICAN) business of…inventing.
Remember the old days when Miss America Contestants fretted over how to answer their question?
Miss Louisiana, Brittany Guidrey didn’t hesitate to put forth her NOBODY Opinion, and listen to the crowd.
Go ahead Brittany, run for office!
A great part of mankind…are unavoidably given over to invincible ignorance. –John Locke
What a week it was–The latest Obama blunder is being splashed all over the world, and Nobody Knows where it’s all going to end. Nobody Knows why Susan Rice, went on all the Sunday talk shows to say that Bowe Bergdahl was captured on the field of battle, when men that were in his troop, would like to see him tried and shot for being a deserter. After all, men lost their own lives looking for him.
Susan Rice must do a mean Happy Hour on the Good Ship Lollipop.
Nobody Knows if Bowe the dancer was actually helping the Taliban set just the right bombs to blow up American soldiers, but circumstantial evidence seems to point in that direction. And Nobody Knows if, as reported by WND, the American soldiers were ordered to shoot him on sight if they found him, and if that’s so, then Obama truly DID save his life. Not from the Taliban, but from our own soldiers. In the meantime’s, Obama stands by his decision to release the worst of the worst terrorists, out of Guantanamo, and by his own admission, they could try to kill us all again.
Thanks Mr. President.
The movie is coming soon…
Nobody Knows what the President was smoking when he made this deal, but it wasn’t grown in Colorado,
And speaking of smoking—
Nobody knows exactly WHEN marijuana is going to be legal in all of Obama’s 57 states. The radio is filled now with how overdue legalization is. The marketing potentials are endless! Marijuana could be put into everything! Food, pizza, cupcakes, morning cereal, soda,…our water…making all these Obama scandals much easier to deal with—.and one guy has an even more enticing idea;
Washington state based Mirth Provisions plans to release a cannabis-infused cold-brew coffee called “Legal,” as the new product will only be available in markets where marijuana is legal.
Creator Adam Stites told My Northwest that each bottle will contain about 20 milligrams of THC, enough to create “an alert, creative, high,” but not too much as to make it an unpleasant experience, “especially for people who are just getting into marijuana.”
I can’t wait to get my alert, creative, high, can you?
And speaking of alert creative highs..
Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin, the chemist, pharmacologist and author known for popularising the drug MDMA and creating and synthesizing hundreds of psychoactive drugs, has died aged 88.
Shulgin, dubbed the ‘Godfather of Ecstasy’, died at his home in California after being diagnosed with liver cancer.
Shulgin not only explored and created drugs for college boys to dope their favorite freshman, he published online, over 800 pages on how to make those drugs online..for free, giving a whole new meaning to ‘date rape.’
According to Psychedelic Frontier, Shulgin once estimated he had tripped on psychedelic drugs 4,000 times during his life –roughly once a week for more than 50 years.
Nobody Knows, but Nobody Wonders if Shulgin hung out with Bowe’s Dad.
And speaking of ecstasy….
Nobody Knows that now, the global elites are saying that infidelity is due to …global warming.
(Honey, it’s not MY fault, she was just so…HOT! It’s those damn carbon emissions!)
When asking people who cheated on their spouses, what was the cause, the survey SAID!
Survey respondents also reported they’re more likely to sneak a little on the side in hot weather than in cold. That makes sense — after all, which would you say is sexier, a steamy Miami day or a polar vortex?
Which means in this insane world where nobody seems to know anything, especially Obama and his whole cabinet, we can blame just about everything on global warming.
And that includes Obama’s low IQ.
And why government workers get bonus when people die.
Nobody Knows the actual power of invincible ignorance, but we are finding out, John Locke was right.
Here’s a BIG wonder: We are all against bullying in school, bullying on the internet, bullying the female, etc, etc, in fact there are whole government organizations hell-bent on stopping bullying.
And yet…our cable TV is filled with the most popular bullies ever graced the planet. Simon’s mean and nasty comments drove American Idol to the top of the charts. And yes, the other night, I actually watched Hell’s Kitchen.
Some guy made a half-baked less than perfect scramble egg. You would have thought, that he was bin Laden himself by the horrible tongue lashings he got from everyone.
I do not watch this stuff, but MILLIONS love it.
So, this Nobody Wonders how we can tell our children not to bully, when this stuff is everywhere? It goes beyond teaching someone about hard knocks, it’s “How to Bully 101″ Where’s the “How to take care of Bully’s 102′?
And when our children grow up, they will get bullied by their own government. I suspect they are just getting everyone used to it. And isn’t it funny that NOBODY anywhere has pointed this out?
Nobody Knows it, but I do wonder…Did Soap Opera’s die because real life news became more of a weekly soap opera to watch? Last week the daily news was filled with suspense: Was Obama playing golf while Putin mocked him by flying jets over our ships? (well, yes.) Will there be another standoff on the Bundy Ranch? (probably) Will Detroit get global warming subsidies from Obama, because of its record snowfall (it’s possible, but not sure yet) Will Eric Holder have another racist breakdown? (Hopefully) ….
I don’t know about you, but the suspense of the daily news, is much more enticing than even when Luke and Laura got married on General Hospital, and THAT was one exciting day! And speaking of hospitals…
Nobody Knows why the latest report on how marijuana changes your brain didn’t come out BEFORE they legalized it in Colorado:
– A small study of casual marijuana smokers has turned up evidence of changes in the brain, a possible sign of trouble ahead, researchers say. “What we think we are seeing here is a very early indication of what becomes a problem later on with prolonged use,” things like lack of focus and impaired judgment, said Dr. Hans Breiter, a study author.
Yes, anybody who has friends that have used marijuana daily can tell you for sure: Do NOT ask them to mow your lawn. It’s also not known if the reason why most liberals are so brain-damaged— is because they smoked more dope in their youth than conservatives. As an example, all we have to do is look at brain damage in the White House.
And speaking of brain damage…
Nobody Knows that they are finding out that young kids who spend their time playing kiddy games on the IPAD are having problems using their hands. Not to mention, they are becoming addicted the them. (see below) The study found out that the kids can’t do much at all with their fingers but wipe. They have no dexterity in their fingers, not doing the normal things that kids do like build with blocks.
But…think—- what finger motion is done every single day by everyone on the planet? You swipe your credit card. Nobody Knows if the vast globalization of future consumers is being programmed to spend money from a young age, but I don’t think anyone even thinks that marketing guru’s would even wish that on young kids. (Haaaa…of course they would!)
Nobody Knows whose bright idea it was to put into the tax code that you could take off your abortion, and your birth control pills, and your vasectomy. (Kathleen? Holder?) And Nobody Knows how you can claim a deduction for these things since the government is paying for them anyway, not you? Anybody figure that one out? AND…as an extra bonus, if you commit a murder, you can deduct your legal expenses. (Even if the state supplies it? ) Can taxes get more confusing?
According to Donald Rumsfeld, they can..
Nobody Knows that I am so glad Donald wrote that letter because, I think when the IRS comes to audit all the good patriotic people, all we have to do is show them Rumsfeld letter, and plead the fifth. (That was a really, peachy keen letter Mr. Rumsfeld, thanks!)
Come back next week for more DAYS OF OUR American LIVES…and why we have no clue about any of them.
ATLANTA (AP) — The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta apologized Monday for building a $2.2 million mansion for himself, a decision criticized by local Catholics who cited the example of austerity set by the new pope.
“I failed to consider the impact on the families throughout the Archdiocese who, though struggling to pay their mortgages, utilities, tuition and other bills, faithfully respond year after year to my pleas to assist with funding our ministries and services,” he added.
What was it that confused him? Was it the gold faucets? Maybe the bathroom fit for a Russian Czar? Was it his membership in the Martin Luther King Board of Preachers at Morehouse College? Was he trying to mimic Obama?
And what will the new Pope Francis do? Even though he can walk the halls filled with the richest treasures in the world, Pope Francis lives in an apartment on the Vatican grounds. And last week, he removed the German Bishop of Bling, who lived in a $43.miillion dollar mansion. After all, that’s a bit much.
Poor Pope Francis…his priest are acting like ….well like rich basketball players instead of…priests. The Bishop took the money donated by the estate of the author of “Gone with the Wind” and instead of using the money to help the poor people of Atlanta, he built himself a mansion, no doubt to save the souls of all the rich basketball players that live there. (an impossible task)
And speaking of souls…
In Poland, a polish priest is upset about the devil: Yes, Lego is turning toys into toys of Satan that will “destroy” children’s souls.
In a presentation aimed at parents, Father Slawomir Kostrzewa said the popular Danish toy company had taken a lurch to the dark side with its series of Monster Fighters and Zombie mini-figures, and that they “were about darkness and the world of death”. (See Zombie eating MEAT!)
“Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters,” he explained. “These toys can have a negative effect on children. They can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side.”
Yes, with all the problems in the world…the polish are concerned about…the toys. (Not their toys of course, but yours.)
Nobody Wonders how these priests got to build these mansions IN THE FIRST PLACE! And when did they discover that Lego was a cosmic evil for Satan?
I suggest that the Pope start telling people to stop watching Zombie movies so that the toy companies won’t make Zombies, and the Bishops to start living in small apartments, like the rest of their flock.
But—when the Bishop is BLACK, I imagine, he will get to keep his big house, if only to give Obama a nice place to stay when he visits.
Nobody suggest that if the Bishop of Atlanta wants to keep his big mansion, he place tons of Zombie Legos’ on his lawn. And if the Slawormir Kostzewa complains, tell him to take it up with the Pope. Maybe the Pope can get Lego’s to make a few angels.
Come on…do I have to keep this world sane or what?
Just when you thought that the feminists had their movie stars and music idols all under control, think again! Lady Gaga has come out with some life statements about ‘men’ and ‘women’ that is totally going to bug every feminist on every blog.
When talking about men and her husband (boyfriend?) she gives this advice:
Yes, actually,” said Lady G, 27. “He’s totally in charge. I mean, when I am home, I am, like, shoes are off, I’m making him dinner. He has a job, too, and he is really busy!”
“I’m in charge all day long, the last thing I want to do is tell him what to do,” explains Gaga, who apparently doesn’t realize there’s a middle ground to be had. “It’s not good for relationships to tell men what to do, female listeners who are out there.”
Notice I underlined the reporter’s comments insinuating Lady Gaga is nuts.
“The definition I’m using with the word ‘submissive’ is the biblical definition of that,” she said. “So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength. And that’s what I choose to have in my marriage.”
She called her husband “a natural-born leader. I quickly learned that I had to find a way of honoring his take-charge personality and not get frustrated about his desire to have the final decision on just about everything. I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work.”
Are the feminists going to call her out on this one?
So–we learn here that the Gaga who has done just about everything she can on stage, and who is obviously in control of her work life, decides to let the man be the boss at home.
Gee…like I said…wonders never cease. Somebody call Gloria. She might have to adopt kids in the Congo to make up for this abomination.
Wonders never cease. First, Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize, which he didn’t deserve, and now, he gets an Ambassador to Humanity award, from Steven Spielberg.
President Barack Obama is set to deliver remarks and receive an honor presented by Steven Spielberg at a USC Shoah Foundation event, the organization said Friday.
“President Obama’s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” said Spielberg in a statement announcing the news. “As a constitutional scholar and as president, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity for all is remarkably evident.”
“The president’s recent appointment of the first special envoy for Holocaust Survivor Services in United States history demonstrates his staunch commitment to honoring the past while building a better future,” the director continued. Spielberg will present Obama with the Ambassador for Humanity Award.”
Right. Democracy rule by the majority of one, and his human rights? He is setting up his own holocaust with Obamacare. That’s how much he cares about human rights. Constitutional Scholar? I guess you have to know the laws to know how to break them.
Things must be REALLY be bad if Steven Spielberg has to come out and try to promote his old pal Obama. Don’t you wonder what Steven Spielberg gets for always giving the democrats his millions, his talent, and his time?
I can take one guess: And it rhymes with honey.
This is one ego fest you won’t find Netanyahu attending, and when the rich Jews keep giving to people like Obama, a man who doesn’t even recognized Jerusalem on a map, it makes you wonder.
Maybe there is a grain of truth to racial stereotypes, after all.
All experience colors any perceptions in most people’s life, so I was surprised as I read the interview that Steven was even MORE of a genius that I had imagined in 1985 when I must have first read this interview. Just the scope of how he thought, and how he looked at his own trade, and the insight he had into his own life and people, were amazing. And then, I read this about his review of the movie Rambo:
“I think Rambo is great. I love Rambo. But I think it is potentially a very dangerous movie, because it’s a this- is-the-way- it- should- have- been motion picture which is very, very frightening. It changes history in a frightening way. But it’s a helluva well made picture. It winds you up inside, and when it let you go, you spin around like a top, and the darn thing is just so much fun to watch. Even bleeding heart liberal walk out trying desperately to deny that they were entertained. I was entertained and angered at the same time. “
Now…isn’t this interesting. He is mad that a movie that was filled with violence made him angry, and yet he was entertained.
I had that same feeling for YEARS after I saw Jaws. ANGER. Jaws ruined my love of the water. I grew up swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, an ocean filled with all kinds of sharks, and yet, I was never scared. After that movie you couldn’t get me near an ocean without those images in my mind.
Thanks a lot Steve.
After I saw that movie I had nightmares. Millions of sharks were killed out of sheer fear all over the world. Spielberg put a deep fear of sharks into the general population, the world has never gotten over it. While sharks are dangerous, more people are killed by lighting every year. I’m sure it spoiled many a vacation.
And yet…Steven obviously simply has rationalized his own movie as…sheer entertainment, which put him on the map. So see, it really is about the money. He is no different from Stallone.
Although, having said that, comparing Spielberg to Stallone, is like comparing Beethoven to the Troggs.
Nobody Wonders at the human capability of ignoring one’s own hypocrisy. We are incredibly good at it, especially if we can make ourselves more money.
Most everyone who saw Rambo knew it was simply a fantasy action film. But JAWS…that was so real, it became our reality.
If asked today, would Steven have any guilt about it at all? Or, does he think he did us all a favor?
