Michael Crichton on (Global Warming) Certainty

"I'm certain that there's too much certainty."......Well said, Mr. Crichton, well said.

On Anna Nicole-Smith's Purported $50,000 a Month Allowance From that Old Guy

Miserable 20th Century European Leaders - Volume 4; General Douglas Haig (England)

While it's true that there were a great many piss-poor generals during World War One (most of them being on the Allied side), none of them were as miserable, incompetent, and wretched as Haig (a man who basically got to where he was solely through through his friendship with King George V). Not only was this asshole an incompetent strategist who rarely if ever visited the front, he was also an individual who had absolutely ZERO regard for human life (and, yes, I'm talking about his own damn soldiers here). I mean, the guy would routinely send thousands upon thousands of his own men into what were literally little more than suicide missions (almost 20,000 deaths during the first day of the Battle of Somme, for instance) and the only saving grace to the story here is the fact that British Prime Minister, Andrew Lloyd George, ultimately grew weary and wise to the man's idiocy/callousness and put him on a leash.

On the Kardashian Sisiters

I'll take, "Stupid, Shallow, Shameless, Deceitful, Irresponsible, and Not Even All that Attractive Hetero Cock-Whores", for a thousand, Alex.

On Fox News's John Bolton Calling President Obama "Ideologically Rigid"

While I tend to agree with the statement, the fact that it came from the mouth of some neoconservative asshole - let's just say that it didn't sit too well with me.

On Spanada

Yeah, I got drunk on that substance quite a number of times...BACK IN THE DAY.

On the President Not Having a "Strategy" For ISIS in Syria

There are a lot of things about Obama that rub me the wrong way but the fact that he doesn't have some grand strategy for policing the planet isn't one of them. Sorry.
