I want to talk of days gone by and another era. Some us remember our first films we saw and the first songs we heard. The first movie I remeber was John Wayne in the Cowboys. It is one of four films that Wayne dies in and has a couple of real top shelf pros Roscoe Lee Browne and Coleen Dewhurst. Browne becomes the hero of the film after Wayne is killed. The movie stars Robert Caradine who would go onto later fame as nerd Louis Skolnick. Browne always knew how to light up a screen and really was a Broadway actor who did other venues as well. His memorable stint locked in an elevator with Archie Bunker is a classic TV moment. Above all else Roscoe Lee Browne was a dignified man who enriched the lives of those who watched TV.
I have been seeing odd paterns of Caribs leaving the UK to come to NYC. I chalked it up to mere family reunification, but there may be quality of life issues. Blair has focused attention on the problem of Black on Black crime. Yet he doesn't understand the nature of the problem or have the conviction to do anything about it. The problem is not about race as I am painfully aware. The problem exists in the far North with almost no blacks as well. There is less major crime up here because everyone is armed except me. It is funny when I am stopped by police all the time looking for guns, knives and pot. They can find these things quite easily in the car of a local.
Blair misses the point as these problems were somewhat reduced in NYC. Number one handing out a subsitence check in perpetuity is not in the best interest of the recipient. Communist and Socialist vermin talk of compassion but their real aim is paternalism. By feigning concern they abuse the poor and employ a cadre of marginally less useful government workers. The poor are not stupid and life has provided them with skills. Northwind stretches he budget at my expense and sees Earl as a rival. Earl doesn't cost much and is a barrel of laughs.
The best solution for this problem is work. Workfare with demeaning jobs encourages people to find real jobs and learn skills. Yet, in order to aleviate this problem Socialists have to look in the mirror. Socialists are incapable of learning and merely perpetuate the problem forever,
Imus lost his job and his career is likely over. His comments were dreadful but it was over the top attempt at comedy. This really was a case of people paying him back for the non-stop ridicule of Mayor Nagin. The notion that Al Sharpton who has actual blood on his hands for his commentslecturing anyone is funny. Imus is partially to blame as he has been pretending he is a pundit . Either be a shock jock or be a pundit, but only a select few can do both.
The truth is that he hasn't been funny in years except for the Mayor Nagin bit. He just is not interesting or is funny enough to hold your attention. In NYC I would be listening to Curtis and Commie er Kooky er Kuby. In the winter I still listen to them
but in the North country the alternatives are two local talk shows, Imus, Mike and Mike or Bob and Tom. I choose Mike and Mike out of the lack of a better alternative.
Maybe someday some clod up in Vermont will pick up Mark Levin.
Meanwhile Rosie O'Donnel's hateful far left conspiracy BS went off without mention.
I find her comments to be much more offensive than anything Imus ever did in the name of comedy. She and every far left mostly anti-semitic cospiracy kook have made a mockery of 3,000 dead. People should ask Barbra Walters if she has taken leave of her senses as she said nothing.
I want to point out that racial epithets are considered fine as long as the target is correct. Mr Ducky calls Condi Rice Aunt Jemimah and says this is okay because Harry Belacommie says the same thing. The Duck also calls Eli Wiesel a Shoah Pimp.
Do note that is I used a similar term to describe Sharpton or Jesse Jackson the Duck would be screaming racism.
The thing about the clueless far left is they are oblivious to their own moral and mental rot. We have people who regularly trash America and are anti-semitic complaining about my rhetoric. Excuse me, hellooooo 100,000,000 dead and repeated failure and a core of anti Americanism/semitism, if you can not figure out there are
not good reasons for animosity we can't help you. Then again as we have stated before this blog is not here to make commies feel good about themselves.
