From Star magazine:
In the June 28 issue of Star, on sale Wednesday, we report that Al and Tipper’s breakup didn’t come as much of a surprise to one Hollywood player — Laurie David. Star has learned that Al has been having an affair with Laurie, who divorced Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David in 2007 amidst reports she was cheating with the caretaker of their Martha’s Vineyard summer home.
“Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers,” an insider tells Star. “It couldn’t be avoided.”
I know it’s too easy, but I’m just going to go out and say it. For Al Gore, this is quite the inconvenient truth. So, I know Clinton was defended, but can the nation trust someone that cheats on their spouse and lies about it? I don’t know that we can.
Adam Carolla Complains About Electric Cars. It is not suitable for work due to language, but that doesn’t change the accuracy of what he is saying.
Now that he is in the limelight for his hit movie Avatar, James Cameron is taking a moment to let us know how much better he is then all of us. He makes movies after all, so he understands science.
In an article from the Hollywood Reporter, Cameron goes on to bitch about Glenn Beck as well, but I’ll focus on his whole “I’m just smarter then you” thing:
The “Avatar” director was equally unsparing in his comments about those who don’t accept global warming as fact.
“That’s right,” Cameron said. “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads.”
Turning more serious, he added: “Anybody that is a global-warming denier at this point in time has got their head so deeply up their ass I’m not sure they could hear me.”
So, that was him being serious, and showing serious utter contempt for those who challenge this religion. My experience dealing with others in Hollywood (And I have conversed with a few) is along the same lines. The moment you disagree with them and their religion, they not only loose all respect for you or your thoughts, but then go one step further to back their religion by denouncing any debate or conversation on the topic.
They belittle you with their intellectual nose in the air and follow the religious line. At no point have I ever been able to have a conversation with someone from Hollywood on this topic while still feeling like they held any kind of respect for the science that dares to say ‘otherwise’. You are written off immediately as a lemming, which I find ironic considering their worship of Al Gore.
By making the environment the theme of his home video release plan, Cameron is sending a message.
“Look, at this point I’m less interested in making money for the movie and more interested in saving the world that my children are going to inhabit. How about that? I mean look, I didn’t make this movie with these strong environmental anti-war themes in it to make friends on the right, you know.
“They’re not on my Christmas card list,” Cameron added. “It’s not going to change my lifestyle at all if they don’t talk to me. But you know they’ve got to live in this world too. And their children do as well, so they’re going to have to be answerable to this at some point.”
Cameron and “Avatar” producer Jon Landau opened the program by pledging an environmental theme to the release of “Avatar” into the home video market. The home video release of “Avatar” is now set for April 22, which is not insignificantly Earth Day, as (Glenn) Beck is likely to notice.
So, Cameron, in line with the other Hollywood people I have talked to, instead of having a discussion, simply writes you off as an idiot. After all, why have a conversation, when you can just write the other side off. Noam Chomsky would be proud.
If this is how the intellectual liberal elite think of people who disagree with them, there is little hope with them on any topic, let alone environMentalism. You simly can not argue agasint someone’s religon, and until they actually go back to looking at this as a sicence (of which, the word consensus was only used with the global warming issue, the earth being flat, the earth being the center of the universe, etc…) we are left being laughed at for thinking perhaps the Sun has more to do with the Earth’s climate then my SUV.
There has been a lot of press in the news with someone religious saying something very stupid regarding the Haiti earthquake. What was said involved a religious deity causing the events in Haiti and could have been stopped if people just acted differently.
And it’s not just Pat Roberts, though he is the one getting all the press.
While I won’t disagree that what he said was stupid, I find it disturbing how much attention he is getting while a member of the Church of Global Warming said practically the same thing.
From Danny Glover:
This is a great moment for another type of internationalism, you know. And I hope we seize this particular moment. Because the threat that happened to Haiti is the threat that can happen anywhere in the Caribbean to these island nations, you know. They’re all in peril because of global warming, they’re all in peril because of climate change and all of this. And we need to find…When we did what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens. You know what I’m saying? But we have to act now.
Both Glover and Roberts comments are nearly identical.
In one case, (Pat Roberts) the event in Haiti was caused by a deal signed with the devil to overthrow the French…
In the other case (Danny Glover) event in Haiti was caused because we didn’t sign a deal with the Greenies (in Copenhagen) for the Earth.
I submit that at more of a core, you have a few stupid people saying stupid things about what caused an earthquake. Religion in either case has these people speaking out of their butts. However what is most fascinating is how much Pat Robertson is being covered over Danny Glover for comments about the same thing (A religious cause of an earthquake in Haiti).
When you search their names the results in Google News (at the time of this posting) are quite different.
It is quite interesting how one religion is fashionable to hate, while the other is simply fashionable. It should be noted too that Glover isn’t just talking about our failure to act in Copenhagen being simply in the relm of Global Warming, but his comments were pretty clearly Big Government… but this whole Global Warming thing on its own is pretty Big Government.
