being different

Here's my Quote of the Day, spoken by someone who would have joined the mob to burn a witch or attack Dr. Frankenstein's castle with torches and pitchforks.

""read recently that Michael Jackson's legal bills are well over ONE MILLION DOLLARS. He has to pay that, even though the state couldn't convict him.""

That don't mean the little peckerwood wasn't guilty.

He wasted more money on bullshit than you can ever dream of, 1$million is chicken scratch. If he didn't want to spend it he should of pleaded guilty--because he was/is and it would have saved taxpayer money too.

Find somebody else to feel sorry for.

You know the problem I have with that kind of thinking? If you don't, you don't know me very well.

Is Michael Jackson a pedophile? I don't know, but I DO KNOW what he's guilty of. He's different. In fact, that crazy bastard is downright ALIEN if you look at what he's done to himself over the years.

But that shit doesn't make him a criminal.

People are always too eager to jump on ANYBODY who is "different." I know that fact because I've been different for my entire life. Individuals suffer when they don't join the mob.

Think back to high school. You needed to wear the "right" clothes, hang around the "cool" people or face scorn and ostrascism. I tried that shit for a while, until I realized that MY worth wasn't what some fucking spoiled teenager said it was.

Being different is no crime. But being different WILL bring you a lot of grief in life. Just try it and see if a mob doesn't come after you.

They will. They always have, too. Just read history.


Fuck MSS (main stream society). I am my own person and I don't need to keep up with the jones' hell i'm only 30 minutes from Luckenbach.

There's a big difference between a pederast--that which you accuse Michael Jackson of being, and a pedophile, which he most certainly is.

Even you must have a dictionary. If, on the otherhand, you are identifying behavior from personal experience, I do believe it says a lot about you.

Where were you last night?

Oh, what ever happened to that cute little dog you got for Quinton and Jack? Is it a very sad story?

Come on Rob. Being different is no crime. Buggering little boys in your bed is.

Talking about buggering on TV, while all the time claiming to be 'misunderstood." is stupid.

Even you can see that. Can't you?

There are no laws written that I know of outlawing weirdness. Did Tiny Tim get busted? No, he got rich, and he got married on Johnny Carson's show.

Remember Michael Jackson paid some kid $20 million out of court settlement. Now that kind of money counts.

You don't want to believe he was guilty of diddling little boys, don't. Says more about you than anything else.

I'm with you Rob. he may be as guilty as hell but the jury said they couldn't find enough evidence to comvict him and our judicial system presumes everyone innocent until proven guilty! I don't think much of him. I think he is ugly as hell and should have been convicted of scaring little children and knocking maggots off a gut wagon. But he was not charged wwith that! I was satisfied that instead of hundreds of thousands the report was 8,000 sales of his new album the first week. The public is hitting him where it hurts, his pride because he doesn't appear to need the money.

I hear the little fudge packer is spending time with OJ on the golf courses of Bahrain looking for the one who really did it.

$1m legal fees.

$19m to pay off Jordi Chandler.

I'd say the fucker got quite a bargain this time around.

Fuck Michael Jackson.

He could have got a public defendant if he wanted to save cash.

Not a good day - I can't agree with you on a thing so far.
No matter, I'm still lurking.
Party on!

What's remarkable about this post is the way your persecution complex kicks in. You think your 'different'?

White southern boy. Goes to college. Sows his oats. Pisses away his education. Marries badly (twice) and gets a job in the local factory. Divorces (twice) and becomes an embittered old drunk. Yeah, nobody else ever did that.

It's remarkable how far your perception of yourself differs from the way you present yourself to others.

Your not different, your just like every other mean drunk who spends his life blaming other people for his problems. Mean old employer. Mean old wimmens. Mean old judge. It amazing how little responsibility you take for the state of your life.

Yeah Rob, it's a conspiracy because you dare to be different. Keep telling yourself that and soon enough you'll be a legend in your own mind.

I can't agree with you on this post Rob. Any grown man that likes to sleep with little boys, settles out of court once, and then get his ass in a wringer again for the same thing -- there is something wrong there. He's a perv.

And Mob Boy -- your proctologist called -- he found your head.

Hey, Kim, that was clever and original. Oh yeah, your village called... they want their idiot back. See, your not the only one that can come up with this original stuff.

Posted by: Mob boy on August 17, 2005 06:25 PM

You got strange things to be pissed off about..

Remember this one?

The Kelo v. New London eminent domain case started five years ago when New London condemned a number of buildings, including the lifelong home of one 87 year old resident.

The residents took the case to court and, of course, lost. Now get this. The city is claiming that since the original seizure was legal the residents have been living on city property for five years and thus owe back rent.

So, not only do they have to get out , they have to pay back 'rent." How fucked up is that?

Mob boy -- At least you got my point, that is all that matters.

Damn Rob, you sure do attract 'em.

Posted by: Alaska Kim on August 17, 2005 06:45 PM

I hope that I am getting Rob's point. But mine is that jackson was found not guily. I have to accept that verdict because it is the verdict of a jury trial by peers. I don't have to like it or agree with it but I do have to accept it. To do otherwise results in mob rule and chaos. And mob rule and chaos results in lynching whoever the mob leader decides to lynch.

According to God’s Word, the homosexual lifestyle is not only sinful, but also deadly.

The first chapter of Romans, for instance, in which scripture refers to women abandoning natural relations for unnatural ones and men committing “indecent acts with other men,” resulting in their “receiving in themselves the due penalty for their perversion” (Rom. 1:27, NIV).

“Even if you take Romans 1 out of the picture,” t’m against homosexual marriage and I’m against the homosexual lifestyle because the average life expectancy of a homosexual and lesbian in the United States is 42 and 45, versus 75 and 79.

These people are fighting for a lifestyle that is robbing them of half of their life expectancy.

If Michael Jackon want this kind of life, he's already lving on borrowed time, guilty or not.

Chablis, you have to apologize for the malicious falsehoods you posted here about my death.

They shot me seven times in the head, once in my chest.

Contrary to what you said, I did not try to run away from police or vault the ticket barrier before they gunned me down at Stockwell Tube station.

I entered the station at a normal walking pace and picked up a copy of a free newspaper.

I was wearing a light denim jacket and not the heavily padded coat as you claimed.

The only time I ran was to get to the train before the doors closed. No body yelled at me to stop.

YOU said police had a right to shoot-to-kill. My only crime, apparently was that I looked vaguely like an East Asian under suspicion. Even though I am (was) white.

It was all a terrible mistake. One that you justified over and over again here. You don't have anything to say?

You have so much, always, to say here about the most inane things. Do you not have a word or two about your terrible, lethal, reprehensible, hurtful things you said about me?

You is as co--rrect as water is flipping wet.

Just reading the comments on this one proves your point.

I know Gordo is gonna think he can jump all over my ass given my comment on his/their/whomever's site the other day, but then again, I couldn't tell one bit of dog snot from another . . . a case of mistaken identity when amongst idiots is at least forgivable. :-)

Don't ever dare to be different, sports fans.

Blend in like melted Velveeta and never speak or act against common wisdom because, as Neibuhr and others have observed, mob (demos/democracy) thinking serves the mindset of the mob, not rationality. We feel connected when we act together, irrespective of the required rationality of, or for, action.

Beware to whomever dares to challenge the status quo. That individual becomes a target. The "quo" will not permit their status to be challenged. Note the various "agreements" with the decision, but then notice their "anyway" comments. Polite lies. These folks will, on the surface, acknowledge the jury's decision, but they don't respect it or give a moment's credence to it, because they know better. The truth of their words is they prefer mob justice over the jury. They can TRY to prove me wrong if they wish, but the fact is--innocent until PROVEN guilty is what the words REALLY MEAN, and no amount of words to the contrary dispel that fact. (But watch below, they WILL try to dispel that fact--if for no other reason than "jb" said so). :-)

Hate the troll, so he has to be wrong!

Simple, but sad state of human affairs.

Anyway--kudos on this one, Smif. :-)

*To whomever took Chablis to the mat on Menezes, kudos likewise. Pogo's wisdom would apply to most crises we call terrorism, if we would but permit it.*

The perfect comment. How could anyone respond to that? Pristine.

Hey Arnie, Elizabeth!

I used to live off College Ave!
Didn't know we lived so close!
Be careful!
