    Most of them have the brains of garden snails and the political wisdom of 8-year-olds. Any one who listens to celebrities about politics is too stupid to vote.

    Actually, the more celebrity endorsements a candidate gets, the less likely I am to vote for them.

    They are "nobody's"with big pocket books to go along with their big flapping nonsensical mouths ! Who in their right mind would idolize or even pay ny attention to these fools? I know who, stupid women and teenagers! Geeez
    I don't even watch tv anymore. Or ever have I bought magazines or paid attention to anything Big Oprah had to say or any person on the stupid View show! It just pains me that some women sit home allay watching soap operas and other foolish show on TV
    I watch the news, re runs of Seinfeld when I can't get any more news and the cooking channels. I wouldn't give any reality show. Any housewives how or any other foolish show the time of day.

    Should they? No. Do they? Yes. Why do retailers spend extraordinary amounts to hire celebs to endorse their products? Because the average American is dumb enough to believe, or at least pay attention to, something if told so by someone famous.

    That's exactly where we're wrong. Because we're obsessed with pop culture, we seem to think celebrities are the ones we should follow. Whether we like it or not, there's no reasonable doubt that celebrities influence our society greatly.

    I'm no hater. I gave you sincere advise. You are free to take it or leave it. If I had been being hateful I would have pointed out the many errors in your post, for example wayne should be Wayne, obama should be Obama, and liveing should be living. Not everyone that gives you advise is being hateful. Don't be so defensive.

    You have a fox on your profile, foxes carry rabies that kills people. Many people have a car on their profile. Cars kill more people every year. If you look at the picture full size you can see that it is a political statement. Empty cartridge and slide locked back equals an empty gun. The gun is in a skeletal hand equals dead person. That captions reads "now you can have it...". This states that I will not willing give up the right to keep and bear arms. There are many crazy people that hurt others for no reason other than for their own sick pleasure. Yes, I own a gun, several actually. I do carry one of them pretty much everywhere I can legally do so. Does this make me some wacko looking to gun down a dozen people? I pray that I will never be in a situation that requires me to use it. If I do find myself in that position I hope that I or someone like me does have one.

    Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
    37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
    38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
    Jesus tells his disciples that his death is near and they need to prepare for the coming journeys, including being prepared to defend themselves.

    Jesus never had a sword, I do not think he had shoes. Yet he was the most powerful person to walk the earth. You choose your path and I will choose mines. I going to turn the other cheek. lol..

    That is for each of us to decide. I didn't say Jesus had a sword. Jesus came here to die for our sins and that he did. These verses are from the book of Luke shortly before he was to be crucified. Jesus told his disciples to buy a sword and when they said here are two, he replied "It is enough". Two swords would not be one for everyone, so I take that to mean not all of them needed to have a sword. You are well within your right to not have a gun, but I am within my right to have one. I will defend myself and my rights.

    Indeed, his is a great gun speech. I often hear people say that God helps those who help themselves. This I can paraphrase; God protects those who are willing to protect themselves.
    Gun is a tool and if properly used will help to save lives by stopping someone who would take them.

    Seriously!?! Most are hypocrites of the highest order: 'do as I say, not as I do'; many are just criminally ignorant; few are in touch with reality.
