“No, I’m the kind of person who believes Michael Jordan is incredibly talented.

It appears that you’re the kind of person who doesn’t know what a straw man argument is.”

“ROTFL! *no sale on falling back on the "straw man argument defense!*

I know for certain You do not like Lee. Which of today's film directors do You Like?”

“Nope. Never had any dealings with the man.

I just think he’s not smart enough to be grateful for how lucky he is.

Best? He might be tied for 1000th.”

“You're the kind of person who believes Michael Jordan got into the NBA because of luck. ;=D You hate the one thing both Jordan and Lee have in common. Ha! Ha! Ha!”

“What brand? Exploitative and mediocre film making?

He brings new meaning to the term “Legend in his own mind.”

If he had ten times as much talent as he thinks he has he still wouldn’t be considered a competent director.”

dblohangel on Dec 3, 2013 at 21:25:47

“Oooo, why so hostile toward Lee? Did he steal an idea, or reject your script? Ha! Ha! Ha! I believe the man's work can be appreciated in its entirety. It's relevant and makes him one of the best American film directors...ever!”

“Spike Lee is one of the luckiest men in show business.

His first “hit” was a total fluke that could have easily been overlooked. Thanks to pure luck he parlayed an amateurish film into a career that far more talented writers and directors only dream about.

In 2003 the little egomaniac sued Spike TV claiming that the American public associated the name Spike with him.”

“The Koch brothers are addicts who use money and power to trigger the same dopamine junkies trigger with heroin. Same neurotransmitter, same self-deceptions, same lack of concern about the repercussions caused by their depraved behaviors.

The difference is that junkies get arrested and can die from overdosing on their favorite dopamine trigger while money and power addicts are free to flaunt their addictions and others die from their overdosing on their dopamine triggers.”

“I don’t know how the media allows the American public to forget that Boehner passed out bribery checks to house members from the tobacco industry in the middle of a critical vote on legislation affecting big tobacco.

The man is a shameless huckster who is wiling to sell his soul, integrity, and vote to anyone willing to pay his price. He is without principals and couldn’t care less who suffers or who dies as a result of his malfeasance.”

“I don't remember hearing about that...

But the republican party has the ability to tune out anything.

McCain was busted taking payoffs in the Keating five scandal....

Gingrich was indicted and charged, and fined for corruption issues

Yet ask a hard right winger about these specific incidents and most will say that these were left wing lies, or that they have changed.

Morals and ethics mean nothing to these people, it's absurd.”

“In an article, written by Dr. Ian Robertson and titled, “Like baboons, our elected leaders are literally addicted to power“ the author explained dopamine’s involvement in the media scandals that continue to rock the UK.

It appears that too many of the CEO’s destroying environments, economies, and people’s lives are also power addicts who are creating mayhem to trigger the same dopamine junkies trigger with heroin.

Unfortunately for the planet and our species’ future, as Dr. Roberston notes in his article, “But too much power – and hence too much dopamine – can disrupt normal cognition and emotion, leading to gross errors of judgment and imperviousness to risk, not to mention huge egocentricity and lack of empathy for others.””
