The Mel Gibson Flap

Goodness the world almost halted when Mel Gibson got stopped while driving under the influence and uttered a stream of anti-Semitic words that could burn ears.

As the pundits opined and The Koz Kidz smirked I considered ole Mel and where on earth he is coming from.

For I simply do not understand anti-Semitism and never have. In fact, I'll go out on a limb here and softly suggest that even though the rest of the planet seems to be anti-semitic for reasons I don't understand, I'd argue that the United States of America is a country with little anti-semitism and there's a reason for this.

I am not Jewish and, indeed, would be considered as WASPY as they come. Just to stipulate.

As my naïve self considers it, anti-semitism stems from insane and unreasonable jealousy. For the Jews are normally a more intelligent and enterprising people. I speak of the Jewish lineage as opposed to the actual religion of Judaism although political correctness notwithstanding, Judaism is almost as much a heritage as it is a religion. At least as I see it but some might ask what do I know.

Americans too are generally intelligent and enterprising people. Which makes the rest of the world hate us. Unlike the Jews, Americans haven't quite got used to being hated and resented by the very small and petty individuals who live in hopeless squalor even if located in a lush fertile part of the world that should have bountiful riches from agriculture or natural resources pouring into the national coffers.

It's got something to do with Darwin as I see it.

So Mel Gibson, hey, why on earth does he hate Jews so? I've heard his father was very anti-Semitic and I suppose such things can be learned, look at those Islmaofacist schools that teach youngsters that suicide bombing is such a wonderful thing.

Even so, an intelligent mind can overcome brainwashing so again, what's with Mel Gibson?

I'm not impressed with Gibson no matter how many apologies he makes. Small bitter people like this just make me want to move on.

Mel Gibson Apologizes for DUI Arrest, 'Despicable' Remarks

Mel GibsonLOS ANGELES, July 29, 2006 - Mel Gibson issued a lengthy statement Saturday apologizing for his drunk driving arrest and saying he has battled alcoholism throughout his life.

Gibson also apologized for what he said were "despicable" statements he made to the deputies who arrested him early Friday morning on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

"I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested," he said in a statement issued by his publicist. "I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my
horrific relapse."


"If a drunken Mel Gibson did indeed call out, 'Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,' then there can be only one possible place for a man who believes such things: as the next Secretary General of the United Nations."

- Columnist David Frum

    Hillary Clinton's $6,000 Beauty Sessions

    Sen. Hillary Clinton has put together an army of 50 staffers and more than 20 consultants as she prepares to do battle for the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.

    Included in those ranks is acclaimed Washington, D.C., hairstylist Isabelle Goetz, who has collected $3,000 in recent months to clip the former first lady's locks.

    Federal fund-raising records reveal that Clinton paid $1,500 to Goetz in April and another $1,000 in May.

    She passed off both sessions as "media production" expenses, according to the New York Post.

    Goetz, the favored stylist of John Kerry, also got $405 from Hillary's campaign in April to cover her travel expenses, and a $38 expenses tab in May.

    Clinton paid out another $3,000 to Hollywood makeup artist Barbara Lacy for eye-lining and other makeup work before she appeared in a film seen on her re-election Web site, the Post reports.

    Once again, the beauty sessions were listed as "media production" expenses.

    The Dixie Chicks, Capitalism and Anti-Americanism

    Heh. There's not one damn thing they can do about it.

    But yes, in fact, we have free speech here in America. Lots of free speech as a matter of note. If a country/western group wants to lambaste our President overseas goodness knows, use your free speech Dixie ladies.

    Yet the Dixie Chick audience doesn't like it one bit. Not one little bit and they aren't buying tickets and that's the rub. THE GODDAMN AUDIENCE HAS FREE SPEECH TOO YOU TWITS!

    See, free speech includes NOT buying tickets to Dixie Chick concerts. And although the Compassion Police excoriate the silly American public who thinks performers should entertain and stay the hell out of political commentary, the silly American public still refuses to buy Dixie Chick tickets and no one, not Saddam, not Castro, not the Koz Kidz themselves, CAN MAKE THEM.

    Live it, love it, learn it. DEAL WITH IT.


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Several concerts on the Dixie Chicks' "Accidents & Accusations" tour have been canceled after slow ticket sales, but the group says it has replaced them with other dates.

    Kansas City, Houston, St. Louis, Memphis and Knoxville are among 14 cities no longer on the original schedule released in May, according to a revised itinerary posted Thursday on the Dixie Chick's Web site.

    Other shows, including Nashville, Los Angeles, Denver and Phoenix, have been pushed back to later dates.

    The North American leg of the tour kicked off July 21 in Detroit. Billboard magazine and other trade publications have reported lackluster sales in some markets, particularly in the South and Midwest.


    From: **NY Post Page 6 BLIND ITEMS 8/2**

    WHICH hunky actor who once picked up a young man and brought him back to the Mercer Hotel for oral sex is now hanging out with a top athlete? The two are said to be more than just workout buddies.

  • Vin Diesel?
  • Matthew McConaughey & Lance Armstrong


    WHICH Hollywood agent is denying he left his wife and kids for one of his clients? She's a top-tier movie star recently separated from her husband, and she's denying it, too . . .

  • This one is Hillary Swank. Don't know the agent's name, though...

    John Travolta's Home

    A lot of neighborhoods don't allow the owners to park Boeing 707s outside their homes, which is why actor John Travolta moved to Jumbolair, near Ocala.

    It's not just another housing development, as you can tell by the

    1.4-mile airstrip and the Boeing 707 parked next to one of the houses.

    Located in the Central Florida town of Anthony, just north of Ocala, it's called Jumbolair, and it's the new home of John Travolta -- '70s TV phenom,film
    superstar, Oscar-nominated actor, sex symbol, accomplished pilot, doting husband and father.

    After several years of whispers about his building a house here, the 49-year-old actor has taken up residence in his completed mansion. A lifelong love of aviation holds the key to Travolta's decision to build at Jumbolair.

    Travolta owns at least two jets, a Gulfstream and a huge Boeing 707B.

    Simply put, there aren't very many non-commercial airstrips where planes of that size can take off and land. Jumbolair, with its long landing strip and massive
    jet wash berms at either end, is one of them.

    Aerial view-John Travolta's House

    About a decade ago, Travolta had a home in a fly-in community near Daytona, but was sued by neighbors who claimed his jet airplanes were too big and noisy
    for their facility.

    The very layout of his new house is testament to Travolta's love of flying.

    It's located immediately off the main airstrip, and is designed so his jets can taxi right up to two outbuildings connected to the main structure, which is shaped like a squat air-control tower. Travolta literally can walk out his door, under a canopied walkway and into the cockpit, open the long mechanized gate and be airborne in a matter of minutes.

    According to the Federal Aviation Administration pilot database, Travolta is qualified in several types of single- and multi-engine aircraft, and has the highest pilot medical certification possible.

    "We know that Travolta's an accomplished pilot. ... A lot of people fly for the pleasure of it, and he's one of them," said John Clabes, an FAA spokesman.

    "If you have this many ratings on these types of high-performance aircraft, you're obviously a good pilot."

    In layman's terms, Travolta has enough experience flying large multi-engine jets that he could easily switch to piloting commercial airliners for a living.
