Moore, North Carolina, LGBTQ and Freedom of Association

I saw this popping up on my Facebook feed in the past few days —

So now we know what it takes to shut down a showing of one of Moore’s crappy “documentary” flicks.

Seriously, why can’t Moore extend this same courtesy to the rest of the United States?

Does Moore really believe that people who don’t watch his moivies are somehow deprived?

Even better — the counterpoint of Howard Stern.

Back in the 1980s, Stern ran some sort of survey to see what his listeners were like.

The results were somewhat surprising, to put it mildly.

The people who liked Stern’s routine would listen for an hour or so, then move on to other things.

The people who hated Stern, who thought of Stern being devilspawn and such . . . those people would not only listen to the entire show, but would record it in order to demonstrate to friends and family the true depths of Stern’s depravity.

Advertising like that, you can’t pay for it.

Thus, I would think that Moore would want his flicks to run where they would piss people off, just for publicity’s sake.

‘Fraid to Fly?

Filed under: Life, Philosophy, Politics, Quizzes / Surveys, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:58 PM (16:58)

Current mood: aggravated

> since i am a pilot i have a question ………….who is afraid to fly …..and why ?
> if you do not fly …….what method do you use trains .bus ……or your personal auto?

I’m not afraid to fly. I rather like it, in fact. It’s quick and fun.

HOWEVER . . .

I am averse to what’s available these days for “commercial aviation” :

From the Wiktionary entry on “averse”:

1.1 Adjective –
1. Turned away or backward.
2. Having a repugnance or opposition of mind; disliking; disinclined; unwilling; reluctant.

No.2 is the operative definition here. I find the common practices of commercial airline companies repugnant and so I am disinclined to use their services. Those practices include:

Overbooking

Breaking up parties – I’ve always ended up with total strangers who couldn’t SHUT THE FUCK UP to save their own lives.

The shitty selection of music available on the earphones they provide.

The way they let people bring way more than the limit on board — then those people insist on using YOUR overhead compartment.

The ever-worsening searches that did NOT stop the al-Qaeda terrorists on 11 Sept 2001.

I will fly with the first airline that allows me to board the plane with one of my Glock pistols worn openly visible on my belt. I have no problem with the ticket-counter people insisting that I use Mag-Safe or Glaser ammo – it is their plane, after all.
