Cynique Posted July 9, 2015 Report Share Posted July 9, 2015 (edited) Bill Cosby's words seem to be coming back to haunt him what with the release of an old tape of a court deposition. Admitting in it that drugs were his aphrodisiac of choice when seducing young women, seems to be a very self-incriminating act. His career now looks to be irrevocably damaged. Apparently drunk with power, Cosby made his own rules to live by. Catering to his penis instead of listening to his brain has brought about the ruination of his reputation, as has been the case in so many prominent men. And unprominent ones, too. Even Jared of Subway sandwich fame, has been removed from his spokesman position over suspicion of child porn charges. Losing weight on a diet of Subway menus, apparently reduced his ability to exercise good judgment. tsk-tsk. And speaking of "dickheads", Donald Trump is leading the Republican presidential polls, thanks in no small part to his verbalization of racists remarks about Mexican immigrants. Ironically, this ludicrously-coiffed hot air balloon has found an audience because America is full of people who appreciate someone they believe is telling it like it is, even if this exposes their ignorant misguided views. I must confess that even I, in all of my ignorant misguidance, liked how Trump made that twit, CNN anchor Don Lemon, look like an idiot during the portion of an interview with him that focused on Trump calling Mexican immigrants rapists, to which Don informed that it wasn't clear who was raping the women... Making things even more bizarre is black Republican political candidate, Dr. Ben Carson, accusing Obama of trying to start a race war by speaking out against racism. 'Guess this myopic neurosurgeon believes in letting "sleeping dogs lie". Presumably, against the will of "Uncle Ben", South Carolina finally gave up the ghost and its state legislature has voted to take down the confederate flag that flies over its capital. This reminds me of how the Berlin Wall just one day collapsed, - brick-by-brick. And the overwhelming disapproval of same-sex marriage also did an abrupt about-face and just fell apart. All of which reinforces the idea that nothing stands in the way of an idea whose time has come. Makes one wonder about whether the idea of Blacks getting it together will EVER come - its delay undoubtedly stemming from reasons as varied as the black "race", itself. I also find myself wondering about the black religious naysayers insisting that all the bad things happening in this country can be attributed to God being displeased with such abominations as gay marriage. Has it occurred to them to question what message God is sending with the burning of and murders in black churches?Increasingly, I'm beginning to regard political correctness as a caveat whose time has passed because it can also be repressive. I think the trophy for courage that ESPN is awarding former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner for transistioning into a female, is a ridiculous gesture. Gimme a break. This decision didn't take guts, It took having the money to implement a weird whim, and I am coming out of the PC closet by declaring Brucilyn to be a walking, dysfunctional freak show - which I would buy a ticket to gawk at.
