Helen Thomas, Obama and Jim Carrey - In The News 20 July 2013

Helen Thomas dies. Good Riddance. She is most famous for her racism against Israel (she is of Lebanese descent) highlighted by this quote: "Tell them (Israel) to get the hell out of Palestine,.....Remember, these people are occupied and it's their land. It's not Germany, it's not Poland." When Wrinkle Faced Thomas was asked where they (Israelis) should go, she answered, "They should go home." When asked where's home, Thomas replied: "Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else."

An on-line report on her career and death said that after she quit UPI in 2000 — by then an outsized figure in a shrunken organization — her influence waned. I would re-word that to say "a shrunken figure in a outsized organization,............".

Jim Carrey twitting anti-violence messages with one hand, cashing large checks for his violence laden movie with the other. Carrey made news recently when he twitted that he could e would not stand behind his violent comic-book film "Kick-Ass 2," because of the violent conten, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary murders.

Carrey's "Kick Ass 2" co-star, John Leguizamo, said (in part) "He's entitled to think whatever he's thinking, (but) I just don't understand. When did you realize the movie was violent? I mean, didn't you see the first one? Didn't you read the script? I know you must have read the script! I don't understand."

We like to add that if Carrey feels so bad for his violent film, then we suggest he donates his proceeds to the families of the Sandy Hook murders. Some how we don't think he'll take us up on this suggestion. 

Barack Obama President Barack Obama, making his first public remarks on the George Zimmerman acquittal, said on Friday that many African-Americans believe that “both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different” if Trayvon Martin had been white.

Mr President, you perpetuate that thinking in your significant efforts to influence public opinion, influence the State of Florida in the needless prosecution of Geroge Zimmerman, and inflame racial overtones through your rethoric when you said "You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son.”   Then you further said "And for those who resist that idea—that we should think about something like these 'stand your ground' laws—I just ask people to consider: If Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?"

Well, Mr President, I'm not going to let you get away with re-inventing the facts. Stand your ground was not the issue.  Defneidng your life against possible death or grave bodily injury was.  Trayvon Martin did not stand his ground....that was part of the problem. He closed with Zimmerman and assaulted him, that was the other half of the problem.
