Nobody's Opinion

Stan Lee VS Bill Maher

Nobody’s Opinion:

We were standing outside on my front lawn when my neighbor, the preacher of his own church, thought I was a liar. He stated that EVERYONE is a sinner and ask me if I had turned to Jesus to ask forgiveness of my sins. We both looked up at the Guatemalans standing on my roof.

“Uh..I’m not a sinner, nope. I have obeyed the ten commandments all of my life and never broken them at any time.”

I could tell he thought I was mental. What a look he gave me. After all, there is that “Do not take the Lord’s name in vain.” commandment that everyone on the planet has broken at least a thousand times.

But I was thinking about the major ones; You know the—thou shalt not kill, commit adultery, lie, steal, ….the good ones.

When I went back into the house, I realize that I HAD indeed made a false statement.

It was then that I remembered the one time I committed what I considered at the time, a big sin.

And here it is: When I was 8-years old, I stole one piece of double bubble gum…but in my defense it was for a good cause: It was for my brother.

Actually though…it was for Superman. I liked the comic too.

It happened one Friday afternoon after school in, what was at the time, the little town of Naples, Florida.

Every day, the bus let us off in front of the local dime store. Sort of like what now would be considered a Seven-Eleven store. And every day, I got TWO pieces of double bubble gum, and my brother bought comic books. Even then I hated school, so it was the high-light of my day.

Judge Kavanaugh has a weakness for beer: Mine was double bubble gum. God, forgive us both.

This is how it happened: The day that I committed the great sin of stealing bubble gum, my brother had forgotten his allowance money.

“Hey sis! Give me your dime, I really need to get this Superman! It just came out, special edition!”

Gary was two years older than me, and how could I say no? He spent hours every afternoon reading his Superman and Batman comics in his bedroom. And he could be VERY persuasive. He was the President of every school he attended due just to his great talent for being the most charming guy around.

So, I gave him my dime which was my allowance.

And I stole a piece of gum.

I felt so bad about the ‘sin’ I had committed that the next day I took my money back to the cashier, explained the reason that I ‘stole’ the gum, and he just smiled and said “Thanks. It’s okay sweetie.”

I bet he read Superman too.

Which brings me to my point. Many of America’s greatest generations of men were RAISED on the hero’s in those comic books. I bet even Neil Armstrong read Superman and Spiderman when he was a boy.

Superman could defeat any foe, as did Batman—as did Spiderman, Stan Lee’s famous boy/hero.
Good VS Evil. All the boys of America grew up wanting to be just like Stan’s Superhero’s: And then they grew up, became men, and fought for, “Truth, justice, and the American way.” And as we see every single day, there’s still a lot of evil in the world that needs to be defeated.

Captain America WAS a symbol of our country.

The boys raised on Stan’s Lee’s Superhero’s became, ‘the greatest generation.”

The man who invented all those superhero’s for boys to grow up on, died last week. His comics became the most watched movies of the world. Every boy still dreams of being the hero, and with Superwoman and Supergirl, girls could dream too. And now, the kids have the movies to bring his characters to life in an even bigger way.

Who could even believe that some guy would complain about Stan Lee, the man who created Iron Man?

Bill Maher had to say this about Stan Lee’s contribution to America and the world…he couldn’t see why anybody was upset:

“But then twenty years or so ago, something happened – adults decided they didn’t have to give up kid stuff. And so, they pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature,” 

“The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important,” the comedian wrote.

He didn’t go so far as to suggest we all run out and buy Michelle Obama’s book, but I bet he was thinking it.

What an idiot. “Stupid Stuff?” He misses the point completely.

It wasn’t the ‘comic’ book that was so important, it was the story, the characters, the MORALS, the lessons of good vs evil, you moron, being used to mold a generation of good men.

All you have to do is take one look at Bill Maher and know he grew up on porn, not comic books.

Sadly, many of movie stars playing Stan’s characters have come out and trashed the all-American President who grew up on these comics too…a man waging a lone fight against all the evil in the world: President Trump.

Chris Evan, Captain America in real life is an American hater…and so parents now have to explain to the kids WHY.

That’s not easy. He said President Trump was Putin’s Puppet, and guess what? He’s decided to quit the role, and that means that many more people will go see the new Captain America…until THAT actor attacks the President. (sigh) Or maybe the next Captain America is going to be gay and Chris Evans didn’t want to play a gay guy.

Nobody knows. I’m just glad he quit.

In conclusion, Stan Lee gave just as much to the American culture as Babe Ruth or Elvis. He made being a man…fighting the bad guys…protecting the women and citizens of America, a standard for the America we all have known and loved.

Now, getting back to my sin: I’m not sure if I should tell my neighbor that I was a sinner, and no, I did not ask Jesus to forgive me. The man who watched out for me every day behind the counter forgave me. And that was enough for me.

As for Bill Maher?

Forgiving him is much harder for me, but then again: I’m not Jesus.

Tell me, who contributed more to America? Who gave young boys the imagination to dream of making the world great and safe?

Stan Lee or Bill Maher?

Bill Maher is…THE JOKER, minus the fact that the joker had better jokes.

All he needs is the face paint.
