“Just putting it out there… while we still can…”

Have found somewhat amusing and definitely perplexing how many fellow Latinos disliked the comment by Sean Penn about the Green Card at the Oscars. That was just a joke among liberal Hollywood friends from two countries. Now, if Clint Eastwood would have said it, then that is a different animal. He is a conservative republican; he is also “white”, as per the interpretation of many fellow Latinos. I do have a question: what is “white”? Why so much emphasis on the distinction of the race emanating from the “all inclusive gang”? It smells like another double standard to me.

Actress Patricia Arquette’s net worth is $23 Million, while her actor brother David Arquette’s net worth is $18 Million. We must then argue for equality for him. Should we not?

************************************************************

Common and Legend exceeded expectations with their “no holds barred” messages. Distortion or exploitation of authentic noble causes from our American past? Or simply another case of “involution”?

In the most recent effort to level the score, Fox’s point man Bill O’Reilly has been accused of “lies” and “exaggerations” on his coverage of the Falkland’s War between Argentina and England. NBC’s Brian Williams had suffered similar castigation for some “lying and exaggerating” of his own about his work during the Iraq war. It occurred to me that the damage inflicted here, in both cases, pales in comparison to the constant and irreparable damage that is being caused on daily basis by the current administration, ignoring and negating the realities of a world in serious turmoil and danger. Both Williams and O’Reilly are pundits of opposing philosophies, perhaps even ideologies. Is not their daily reporting a constant and reluctant attempt to at least demonstrate the virtues of the causes they favor, even at the risk of distortion many times? Why then attack them for “adorning” their reportage and portfolios from their past? Why not question and chastise the bias and partiality of their work in real time? Does not that categorize as “lies and/or exaggerations”?

And with the snap of the proverbial fingers “Global Warming” was magically transformed into “Climate Change” by the usual culprits. In checking the past temperatures over the last century, there seems to have always been some kind of “climate change”. Let’s just keep the idiotic masses entertained. It always pays off… Al Gore is living testimony of that and a climate saboteur himself.
