Mart Taught Me How to Boycott
Hello there, Every once in a while, Jessica can come under lots of undue stress. It is particularly dangerous at these times, for Jessica to witness any extreme examples of stupidity, absurdity or complete and total...bunk. What happens is...Jessica will abandon all forms of reason and rationale and she will simply go completely nuts. That having been said... Kanye West is a complete moron. Oh yeah, I'd heard he made the statement on TV that "Bush doesn't like black people", but I never saw the actual footage. You can catch it over at IFilm. Grab a barf bag. Not only is Kanye - nope, no links people...his site doesn't need any more hits, but if you want to punch him in the nuts, feel free - not only is he one of the most inarticulate people I have ever witnessed on television - and yes that includes Mr. George W. and even Gary Busey - but he is also one of the most ridiculous. #1. What did Mike Myers ever do to you? Was it completely necessary to make your so-called "political statement" while he's trying to do some honest good for the victims of Hurricane Katrina? He had to cover your ass on that one, buddy. I hope you at least apologized to him. #2. You are an idiot. Seriously. Listen to yourself for just a second. Yeah, you got a lotta balls...you looked like a deer in headlights and you sounded like a little boy trying to piss in the middle of a frozen pond. You are an embarrassment. #3. George Bush doesn't hate black people. He very well may hate poor people, I'm willing to give you that, but not black people. But thanks for creating a whole new sensational-ridden problem for all of us to have to deal with day in and day out for the rest of our lives. I could give my own opinion on the race issue regarding the victims of Hurricane Katrina...but the thing is - I don't think there is one. In order to stop racism...we must stop defining people by their race first. I don't care about the color of the woman who's holding a baby who has no food and no shelter. I care that a woman is holding a baby with no food and no shelter. A victim is a victim is a victim is a victim. Black, White, Hispanic, Christian, Jew. Looters, survivors, alive and dead. When you are cut off from the rest of the world with no help, no direction, no order, no leadership, no resources and no hope - it doesn't really matter what you're called. You're a lost citizen. A lost American. A lost human being. Every victim of this tragedy is a human being first. Race, ethnicity, religion...that all comes second. And that's really the point. But you had to go and piss me off Kanye...force me to get all political...so now...I boycott you. Not that I ever bought your shit in the first place. But I boycott you just the same.
