Video: Hollywood’s Gun Hypocrisy

First off, happy New Year everybody! Here’s to a happy and healthy 2013 and a wave goodbye to an… interesting… 2012. This year promises to have some big changes, and I’ll keep you posted about those as we head more toward spring.

Over a week ago I asked if President Obama would include his Hollywood supporters in the discussion about how to rein in a “culture that glorifies guns and violence.” A bunch of sanctimonious, whiffle-brained celebs had just released a video “demanding a plan” from the government on gun control, and I pointed out a few examples of hypocrisy on the part of those very same people in Tinseltown.

Taking it a step further, I ran across the video below at Ace of Spades over the weekend that really puts the final nails in the hypocrisy coffin of Hollywood.

Language warning:

If these double-standard dingbats want to “demand a plan” it should be to call for a two-year moratorium on movie and TV production to see if it has a positive influence on our “culture” they claim to want to help heal. But they would lose millions.

Speaking of idiots, Al Sharpton said the next step after gun control might have to be… knife control. No, seriously.

Off topic — I’m writing this while sitting in the local McDonalds sipping a Diet Coke. Why? Because for some reason I can connect to every other website in the world from my home connection except my own. It happens from time to time and I’m still trying to figure out why. And it’s not just my home connection — I’ve tried connecting from other houses that use the same Internet service I do and I can’t connect from there either (but I can from any other kind of connection, i.e. library WiFi, etc), so the problem is with the provider. Oh well, I’ve got all of 2013 to figure it out. In any case, that’s why posting has been a little slower than usual here in the past few days — because I have to go to a restaurant every time I want to post to my blog. Hopefully I get it sorted out at home before I put on 20 unnecessary pounds.
