Soundtrack � BB King � the Thrill is Gone
So tonight on my drive home, as usual I listened to the radio talk show circuit. Today the Howie guy was talking about a car accident the other night where some 22 year old �man� was being chased by the police, smashed his dad�s BMW into a car, killing a girl, and injuring her friend. He had had his license suspended 7 times before this. This is one reason the court system in Massachusetts is so fucking bad. An old friend of mine, who is a singer in a fairly popular hardcore band from here got in a fight a long time ago. He punched a guy, the guy fell in the street, and got hit by a drunk driver, and died. My friend went to jail for 3 years. He had never been in trouble in his life, was in the wrong place at the wrong time basically. Because he had a shaved head, he went to jail. Now this rich kid has his license suspended 7 times for drunk driving and other offenses is able to drive, and then kill some young college girl. This isn�t fair. Anyway, Howie was talking about this whole thing, and for once I agreed with him.
After Howie, the national talk radio guy Michael Savage comes on. Now this guy is a liberal�s worst nightmare. He is someone I couldn�t be further away from opinion wise. He has a TV show coming on TV debuting tomorrow on MSNBC. Some organizations are trying to have it stopped. Namely GLAAD, because Michael spouts homophobic rhetoric on his show. I think this is ridiculous that these folks are so adamant about civil rights and yada yada yada that they want to censor someone because they don�t like what they say. The guy has something like 6 million listeners, and those 6 million people don�t like gay people, deal with it. I�m sure there are millions of people that would hate �my type�, I�m not going to try to stop them from not liking me, whatever. When I hear him, I realize anyone with any brain cells in their brain is going to think the guy is talking shit and doesn�t make sense, so to get upset that he�s preaching this shit to a bunch of unintelligent people anyway, who cares. I don�t have anything against gay people, but if someone doesn�t like them, as long as they�re not out beating people up for being gay�whatever. I know plenty of liberals who talk about how much they hate this type of person and that type of person�so whatever. I just get annoyed at the double standards liberals have.
There comes a point when you realize there is nothing you can do about hate, and there�s nothing you can do about the fact that the government is going to spend billions of dollars on bombing the shit out of Iraq in the next couple of weeks.
I lost interest in George W after about ten minutes when I realized Star Wars seemed more intelligent than what was coming out of his mouth.
The scene when the guy gets out of the car and runs after his friend.
A pleasant gang of 80 dollar bills
People who have seen the movie �point break� and liked it
I like that the people are friendly because I talk to myself.
