RE: RE: the 2018 trivial drivel thread



As Sally indicated, Roseanne has been known as a racist for a very long time, probably for as long as she's been in the entertainment industry. There is a picture floating around of her standing in front of an oven dressed as Hitler holding a baking sheet of burnt cookies. It's not like she hid anything so I'm left with the impression that her conduct was acceptable as long as she painted with a broad brush and generalized. It wasn't until she targeted specific individuals that she ran into trouble. That's purely a guess on my part. I have no way of knowing why ABC and her management felt that this time was a line crossed.

I think it might have something more to do with her calling out the Jew.

RE: RE: the 2018 trivial drivel thread

Sorry Duchess and Sal. I didn't see you'd been discussing Roseanne here when I posted about in the Asshole thread.

I liked Roseanne's original sitcom, liked her stand-up, and liked her on Politically Incorrect. She was never a favorite, but I thought she was kinda unique and funny in her abrasiveness and outspokenness............ most of the time. Her national anthem schtick didn't surprise or offend me, it was just weird. But, she caught a lot of shit at the time, I remember. And, she bounced back.

I never heard or saw anything back then to suggest she was a racist, just the opposite. Then again, I had no clue she's been a crazy conspiracy theorist for years until it was covered in yesterday's news -- though her cast and crew reportedly knew all about that and figured they could contain her. Bad bet.

Not a problem! I didn't expect it to amount to anything when I wished that ABC would terminate her show. It was just a passing thought and things sorta snowballed from there.

Why would the New York Times put the Roseanne story on the front page but put the story about almost 5000 dead Puerto Ricans on page 13? Just wondering.

Because of America's fucked up priorities.

Thousands dead or dying! Who cares? Let's find out the latest fucked up thing Trump did/tweeted.

Everyone should be talking about Puerto Rico. People are suffering! I feel like no one is paying attention.

Solution: Send Trump to Puerto Rico.
North Korean summit breaks down. Lil Kim to bomb Puerto Rico.

RE: RE: the 2018 trivial drivel thread

Puerto Rico is so corrupt. For years the leaders have become rich and the infrastructure has suffered. One of the reasons they are not getting as much money to rebuild is they have received cash many times to prop up their banking industry only to have the crooked politicians take most of it. Then you have a natural disaster and all things go further south.

But I agree Americans are more concerned about what the Kardashians or the Hollywood elite are up to than other things and the media will gravitate towards the money in the blink of an eye. Like a dog that wakes up from sleep when a squirrel skitters by.

For some reason this post directly after one about Kim Kardashian made me laugh really hard. Her snapper eats puppies now? No wonder Kanye is sad...






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.
