Hollyweird's Grip on Reality

We all know, and figured out long ago, that those beautiful people that populate the fairytale land of Hollyweird lost touch with reality long ago. But it still amazes me when something comes up that really hammers that point home (Rosie O'Donnell does this daily so it doesn't amaze me anymore when her mouth spouts out idiotic things), and when it is so contradictory to what they claim they believe, yet they are so far gone into la-la land that they don't even recognize the hypocrisy.

This latest installment of "How Hollyweird Once Again Proves Its Lack of a Grip on Reality" is brought to you by an article brought to my attention by Night Rider. The article fueling this post is at

Julia Roberts, that sweet girl that first gained our love and respect by playing a whore in Pretty Woman, recently provided her voice for the role of Charlotte in the recent movie version of Charlotte's Web. Apparently as a result of being in the movie, Julia has found a soft spot in her heart for spiders (along with puppies, kittens, baby seals, spotted owls, Kangaroo Rats, trees, and convicted murderers).

I've been saying this for years, in regards to animal rights activists who just so happen to be against the death penalty and pro-choice. "Save the puppy, show compassion for the convicted remorseless serial killer, but kill the baby."

Before we get into a huge abortion debate, like we did over my last abortion post (Friday, November 10th: The impact of abortion on our moral values in politics and society) let's look at this rationally. How can anyone say something like Julia Roberts did in regards to spiders on Good Morning America (December 13, 2006) "You think, that's a person, or somebody's Mom or somebody's best pal." and yet still celebrate a woman's right to terminate the life of an unborn child (remember, most of these kooks support abortion up to full term) and protest the death of a convicted murderer via the death penalty.

It just makes no sense to me.

Save the spider. Kill the baby.

Shouldn't it be, get a shoe and squash the spider, but please don't murder another unborn child?

View the video where she makes these remarks about spiders here.

It all depends on the spider you're saving.

And when you're against the death penalty, the one your saving is your own soul.

Muslim Women in U.S. Military

Fadwa Hamdan is a woman who was ruled by her strict Muslim husband, and before him her father, but now she is in the United States military and taking her life into her own hands. Six months ago she wore the head scarf of a pious Muslim woman and dropped her eyes in the presence of men. Not any more! Now she leads troops at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

Ms. Hamdan wrestled with the decision for two years. Only in the Army, she decided, would she be able to save money to hire a lawyer and finally divorce her husband. She yearned to regain custody of her children and support them on her own. She thought of going to graduate school one day. (read it all at NYT)

I am pro-choice, the baby should have a choice in the matter

You are right, I don't know why this continues to amaze us but it does. There is no understanding minds like that.

What the hell is the thought pattern there?
Oh thats right, a victim mentality requires all to be victims.

Except the "unborn" they haven't developed the "Victim" mentality of the abortion advocates.

Doug you got your hands full with the mudlicker I wish you luck, reality is absent with that one bro.

Oooops! Sorry, I mean, after Xmas and New Years...

Douglas V. Gibbs said...

No Xmas, please. It's Christmas, and yes, after the first of the year. I basically plan to have one about every 2-3 weeks depending.

Doug, I thought we agreed about the X - that it stands as the earliest known symbol for "the christ?"

As for the interview, I look forward to it. What format?

Douglas V. Gibbs said...

We never agreed on anything about the X. And personally, I don't care what you can drudge up to support your theory as X being an early symbol for Christ (notice Christ is capitalized), that symbolism wasn't used by the true Christian Church, I am sure. Perhaps X was used by the Gnostics, or Pagans, or such, but not by anyone I would consider legitimate. So, though I don't put many restrictions on people on my sites, the X stands as grounds for deletion.

As for the interview - looking at the tail-end of the first week in January (I am having surgery on the 29th of December and will need a week to recuperate - my wife will post my articles for me, I will be writing them from a bed-ridden position). Of course we will need to be in contact in ways other than comments. E-mail me at for the particulars. Put Political Pistachio in the subject line so that I don't think it is junk mail. If you have Yahoo Instant Messenger, that would be the best way, but a list of questions answered by e-mail is more than adequate.
