Crazy Britney Spears fan defends her on video and becomes a YouTube sensation. Haha!

Britney Spears VMA Performance: Fat?

Britney Spears really stunk up the VMA’s. She was not prepared and could not even lip-synch correctly to her own song.

But many media outlets and people I have talked to have primarily focused on her being fat.

Sure, she is no longer in incredible shape with tight abs and a sculpted body. But fat? No. She is the mother of two children and is far more fit than most other women in her situation. Britney Spears no longer is the skeletal teenaged sex object she once was, but that is due to her body maturing. What sort of a message does this send to all the women who follow Britney Spears? Our society has been trying to curb the spread of eating disorders such as bulimia, but when we hold average looking women up to public ridicule and continue to idolize Skeletor, we are telling women that they are disgusting and need to go on a water diet.

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

I just finished reading Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. Mrs. Dalloway is all about one day in a woman’s life in late 1800s London. She is an upper-class woman about to throw a party that evening and much of the story involves her interactions with people and those people’s interactions with other and the intertwinings of their lives.

Mrs. Dalloway is an interesting book because of Virginia Woolf’s incredible wordsmithing abilities. She can vividly describe a scene and the feelings of the characters involved and deftly jump back and forth between them to fully portray what occurs. The themes involve the passage of time and it’s effect on the characters as well as the issues of isolation that arose in Victorian society.

I don’t think I’d recommend it to read for enjoyment. The plot is slow and not that engaging.

Don’t Hate This White Man…

I never held you down… I never oppressed you… I never enslaved you.

If your father stole a million dollars should you be held personally responsible for his actions? Should you be in debt for the rest of your life? If he killed a man, should you sit in the electric chair in his absence?

An accepted principle of justice systems in the modern world is that the son cannot be held accountable for the actions of the father.

Don’t hate me for the prejudices and actions held by people of my skin color.

Don’t equate what previous generations did with what my generation is doing.

To do so is the very definition of racism.

Nor does the mere fact that I am a man make me evil. Yes, I have a penis. No, I do not use it to bludgeon the world.

I am not an anonymous white man in a crowd.

Please stop hating me.

Alone at last

For the first time in my life, I live by myself. No parents, grandparents, roommates or brothers (either blood or fraternal). The studio is small, the real estate agent called it cozy. Just me, my thoughts and my things. I have no decorations; everything serves a purpose. Much of my possessions were inherited from others; my big television was given to me by my wonderful brother Jordan, the mini-fridge and television in storage and book rack were purchased from Kenny for $40, the couch and ottoman were given to me by my ex-girlfriend Melanie Dies and even my bed was given to me by my grandparents’ elderly friend. I have no emotional attachment to anything I own, except maybe my old computer. I have no ties. This is both good and bad; If I ever needed to I could just disappear and leave everything behind without a second thought, but it feels like I have no real home.

I don’t think I have ever really considered a place home. I have no roots anywhere or deep connection to any place of residence. Places and things are there merely to serve a function to me; people are all that matter. I have never really decorated any place I have ever lived, except as I felt obliged to impress people. The things I own are not pretty, but they are very useful. I feel that my time is better spent experiencing life and the world than sitting in a too-clean house with frilly shit on my walls. As a kid, whenever I visited anyone’s house that was too pristine and pretty, I was wary. People who have couches with plastic/sheets on them, a spotless white carpet and framed paintings on the wall and a plastic smile are usually hiding a pitch-black heart. They probably have a prostitute chopped up in little itty bitty pieces in garbage bags in the basement. I prefer people who are straight forward and have comfy, lived in-homes. I like to have my friends over and drink wine and eat pasta and have a good time without constantly worrying about minor accidents.

Pat Robertson Scam: The Standard in Moral Corruption

Pat Robertson is a legendary scam artist on a scale most people can’t even imagine. If you visit his website, you will find one of his most recent scams. Pat Robertson is trying to sell his “age-defying protein shake”, which he claims gives him the energy to continue in his criminal religious enterprises. On his page he claims to have leg pressed 2,000 pounds.

To put this claim in perspective, Ronnie Coleman who has won 8 Mr. Olympia competitions (best bodybuilder currently on earth) has an all-time max leg press of 2,300 pounds. ronniecolemanimage.jpg

This is just a goofy, ridiculous claim that doesn’t really harm anyone, except for Pat Robertson’s reputation. Unfortunately, that is not the case with the rest of Pat Robertsons scam enterprises:

-Pat Robertson is extraordinarily wealthy with some estimating his net worth at a quarter of a BILLION dollars. Isn’t he supposed to be a Godly man who works for non-profit Christian organizations? How do you amass the kind of wealth that allows you to live on top of a mountain in Virginia in a magnificent mansion with your own private airstrip? Ooooh yeah, I forgot, he’s not just a cheesy televangelist ripping off senior citizens; he is a man who supports and does business with evil dictators.

-In 1960, Mr. Robertson founded CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) , later renamed the Family Channel and eventually sold to the News Corporation for $1.9 billion. He became massively wealthy by running non-stop fundraising “praise-a-thons” on this channel.

-Pat Robertson ran for President in 1998 and lost the Republican nomination to George H.W. Bush. After his campaign he wrote a book about his experience and here is a quote from it ”

“When I said during my presidential bid that I would only bring Christians and Jews into the government, I hit a firestorm. `What do you mean?’ the media challenged me. `You’re not going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe in the Judeo-Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?’ My simple answer is, `Yes, they are.'”

-from Pat Robertson’s “The New World Order,” page 218.

Pat Robertson is as bad as the Islamic theocracies in the Middle East; if he could have his way this country would be run under a Christian dictatorship.

-Pat Robertson used his powerful influence in Washington D.C. to help support the vicious reign of Zaire Mobutu Sese Seko. Mobutu was one of the most horrible dictators in modern times who kept his people starving and dying from rampant disease while he became wealthy beyond imagation. Mobutu outlawed public demonstrations, ordered the killings of opposition and journalists and banned most religious groups. So why would Pat Robertson support such an evil man? One word: Money. Pat Robertson had a partnership with Mobutu running a diamond mining operation, using his television company’s non-profit aircraft to fly in mining equipment. When Pat Robertson sees an opportunity to profit, no amount of human suffering and misery will stop him. Below are some quotes directly from the mouth of the devil himself:

“You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don’t have to be nice to them.”–Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991

Pat Robertson is a Pentecostal Christian and only believes those who are evangelical Pentecostal Christians are going to heaven. This means that all Catholics and most Protestant denominations are out-in fact, not only are they not Christian, they’re downright evil.

talking about apartheid South Africa) “I think ‘one man, one vote,’ just unrestricted democracy, would not be wise. There needs to be some kind of protection for the minority which the white people represent now, a minority, and they need and have a right to demand a protection of their rights.”–Pat Robertson, “The 700 Club,” 3/18/92

Pat Robertson has a carefully concealed racist side.

“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.” — Pat Robertson, fundraising letter, 1992

HAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHAA… What an animal.

“We want…as soon as possible to see a majority of the Republican Party in the hands of pro-family Christians by 1996.” –Pat Robertson, Denver Post, 10/26/92

Terrifying… Pat Robertson succeeded in this goal. What other goals will he accomplish?

-“I think we ought to close Halloween down. Do you want your children to dress up as witches? The Druids used to dress up like this when they were doing human sacrifice… [Your children] are acting out Satanic rituals and participating in it, and don’t even realize it.”–Pat Robertson, “The 700 Club,” 10/29/82

Pat Robertson believes Halloween is evil… are you f’in kidding?

Pat Robertson is one of the craziest, most wicked men alive today. Pat should check out the Bible sometime and see what it says about men like him:

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness”

-Timothy 6:10
