The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Every group I have mentioned in the header is so guilty of this fact that it is almost embarrassing. NBC programming has been stuck in neutral for some time when it comes to comedies, a subject they were king of the hill for decades. Now, for the first time in recent memory, there is a solid chance that none of their remaining sitcoms will see next year, with Marry Me being the only possibility and that is iffy at best. The Democrats have proven they have no idea what the hell they are doing anymore with infighting, back stabbing and other things I have long lambasted the GOP for. Lastly, we have militant morons attacking innocent people in Israel, a proven failure of a tactic that these idiots seem oblivious to, facts be damned.
Janice Dickerson is the latest to accuse him which brings the count to four who have come forward and at least 14 total who accused him in a lawsuit. The fact that none of these woman are seeking money or a book deal or anything like that, with some outright refusing any income for this to bolster their point, makes this look really, really bad for Cosby who may be joining Jeffrey Jones, Fatty Arbuckle and Stephen Collins on the dust bin of fame. The worst part is that I liked all of them and only Fatty's case appears to be bogus. If he did do all of this, then fuck Bill Cosby.
Seven minutes ago, NBC cancelled the upcoming Cosby sitcom and one has to wonder if the old Cosby show reruns might go away the same as 7th Heaven did for Stephen Collins. Right now, all the Cosby kids from their show must be sweating bullets knowing their cash cow might be headed for the garbage bin. Shame on you Bill Cosby if this true. If it isn't you have little time to salvage what's left of your career.
Speaking of salvaging their careers, Democrats have proven they have learned nothing from the last election. People didn't vote for the GOP en masse like the Republicans keep crowing about as stats show the most dismal turn out since 1942 and that was because most men were at war. People didn't vote because they didn't have anyone to really vote for. The left stayed home because the Democrats message was vague, ill conceived and poorly thought out. One of the worst ideas was to champion for the Keystone Pipeline which cost every single democrat who wanted it voted out of office as the left abstained and the right was never going to vote for them anyway. Talk about chasing windmills.
Nancy Pelosi was caught this week denying she ever heard of Jon Gruber, even though she mentioned him prominently in past speeches. She could have easily turned the "stupid voter" quote to her advantage by reminding people that a Republican controlled Congress might get rid of Social Security, environmental laws, minimum wages and other things voters actually want. As they voted for that, doesn't that imply stupidity? I've heard conservative pundits like Michael Regan say voters are stupid for electing President Obama twice. Why don't democrats do the same?
Lastly, we have the Palestinians who somehow have not figured out that never in the history of mankind has terrorism worked as a way to get what you want. It didn't work for the IRA. It didn't work for the Basques. It failed miserably in the 70's with groups like the Weather Underground and the Red Brigade. But why let the fact that this never works get in the way of a good blood letting. Five innocent people, four rabbis and a cop, were butchered by two douchebags who got filled full of holes for their troubles and their houses razed to the ground. "Yeah, that'll teach Israel" said absolutely no one.
I sympathize with the Palestinians but if you want peace there is only way to get it: renounce violence, give up on the right to return and recognize Israel. Do that and the world will be on your side to rebuild everything, Israel included. However, if you continue to slaughter innocent people, as they have been doing for weeks now, you will not only not get what you want, the world will turn their back on you as they have been doing in greater and greater numbers. Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and others, which once supported you, have mostly turned their backs. Iran has even taken a much quieter tone which is telling. The terrorism method is so last century. Stop this, overthrow Hamas and get to actual peace talks which will give you almost everything you want, and most importantly, a way to get back to a normal way of life that doesn't require running from Israeli airstrikes every five seconds.
