These Videos Keep Getting Better & Better

-In lieu of trying to find a video sharing website that doesn't foolishly censor "offensive" videos ::cough youtube cough::, I ran across this one, called ifilm. After searching through what ifilm has to offer, I immediately fell in love with the website when I found this video almost effortlessly:

-The musical talent, although not amazing, is far superior to that of my last post of the Martha & The Vandellas parody.

I also ran across this...

-What a sicko.


-On a more serious note; Mohammed is the last person I ever want to be like. He is the polar opposite of everything great; he is scum. Why anyone would want to strive to be like him will escape me forever.

Noam "I Hate Capitalists So Much That I Decided To Become One" Chomsky

-I've never liked Noam Chomsky, usually for the myriad of things that he speaks out about every issue. I'm very happy to say that he has slid down the scum slide even more.


I've recommended it before, and I'll do it again; Peter Schweizer's book, -Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy, properly reveals the hypocrisies that some of the most prominent liberals partake in on a day to day basis. The author, Pete Schweizer, published an essay that was adapted from his book, which is where I got these paragraphs from. So I'm just going to list a couple of factoids about good ole' Noam here...

"Chomsky’s marketing efforts shortly after September 11 give new meaning to the term war profiteer. In the days after the tragedy, he raised his speaking fee from $9,000 to $12,000 because he was suddenly in greater demand."

"Corporate America is one of Chomsky’s demons. It’s hard to find anything positive he might say about American business. He paints an ominous vision of America suffering under the "unaccountable and deadly rule of corporations." He has called corporations "private tyrannies" and declared that they are "just as totalitarian as Bolshevism and fascism." Capitalism, in his words, is a "grotesque catastrophe."

But a funny thing happened on the way to the retirement portfolio.

Chomsky, for all of his moral dudgeon against American corporations, finds that they make a pretty good investment. When he made investment decisions for his retirement plan at MIT, he chose not to go with a money market fund or even a government bond fund. Instead, he threw the money into blue chips and invested in the TIAA-CREF stock fund. A look at the stock fund portfolio quickly reveals that it invests in all sorts of businesses that Chomsky says he finds abhorrent: oil companies, military contractors, pharmaceuticals, you name it."

"When I asked Chomsky about his investment portfolio he reverted to a "what else can I do?" defense: "Should I live in a cabin in Montana?” he asked. It was a clever rhetorical dodge. Chomsky was declaring that there is simply no way to avoid getting involved in the stock market short of complete withdrawal from the capitalist system."



-The list virtually goes on forever, and the worst part (for Noam anyways), is that these facts just scratch the surface. The link provided at the top of this post shows everything else that this bigot does in his spare time. I also see that he's coming out with a new book...

-If Bono likes it, it's got to be a "must-read"!

-I'll leave this post with a quote; all you have to do is put it in perspective:

"There’s a famous definition in the Gospels of the hypocrite, and the hypocrite is the person who refuses to apply to himself the standards he applies to others. By that standard, the entire commentary and discussion of the so-called War on Terror is pure hypocrisy, virtually without exception. Can anybody understand that? No, they can’t understand it."
—Noam Chomsky, Power and Terror, 2003

-Noam Chomsky is such a hypocrite that I doubt his own definition of hypocrisy applies to himself. Next time speak for yourself, Chomsky.


-I have recently been thinking of whether or not I want to purchase a professional template, etc. Im still pretty new at this whole blogging thing and I wanted to know if there are any perks/disadvantages in going somewhere like typepad, or anywhere else for that matter. If anyone could give me some insight that would be great.
