    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.

    That sounds like a wonderful premise for a protest video! Imagine a 'reporter' standing outside of a set of voting booths, commenting on all of the zombies coming to vote, missing limbs, bones showing.. rotting corpses.. but still faithful voters in the Chicago community!

    A paid endorsement from a celebrity means no thing at all. Exactly like the infomercials on late night television It is just as if the celebrity was trying to sell us a folding ladder or some tiny vacuum to help men get erections..

    "Hello.. do you know me? Do you like me? Well, i like this person and i think you should like this person too, if you like me!"

    Honestly i will not care about celebrities that sell their self respect for candidate endorsements.

    Really? M. Moore is a moron? His net worth is approximately $55 million. How much have you made?

    Wealth does not beget wisdom nor does wisdom beget wealth. Albert Einstein was extremely intelligent yet he was middle to upper middle class. Mike Tyson earned around $300 million during his boxing career, but is bankrupt. The majority of lottery winners are only wealthy for a short time.

    Technically you are correct in wisdom does not beget wealth. Some folks decide to use their above average talents in disciplines without great economic compensation. But some apply their talents to creating wealth. To do so one must have those above average talents and substantial drive which the other 95% of society doesn't have. Therefore I stand by my statement inferring Moore is not a moron because to make 55 million bucks takes drive and talent. If not, we'd all have it.

    Making $55 million doesn't make him intelligent anymore than someone picking the winning lottery numbers. He films documentaries that star people making little to nothing to be in them. If you look at his films he basically makes money off the misfortune and misery of others.

    First of all I never called anyone a moron. I merely pointed out that Micheal Moore having money doesn't make him smart.

    Already mentioned Mike Tyson, who I don't find to be very bright.
    R. Kelly, admits he is illiterate has a net worth around $150 million.
    Fantasia Barrino, dropped out in the 9th grade and already worth about $5 million. Since Oprah hand picked her for the role of Celie in The Color Purple that figure will likely rocket.
    Susan Boyle, one of the greatest voices in my lifetime and has an estimated net worth of $17.5 million despite having a mental disability.
    Tom Cruise, says he was a functional illiterate until in his twenties due to dyslexia.
    Winston Churchill said he struggled though school and hated it because everyone was smarter than him.
    Dexter Manley, nearly 30 before he learned to read.
    In the late 80s early 90s the majority of professional ball players in the US didn't have a college degree and many of the ones that did admitted it was given to them rather than them earning it.

    So this is your ad hoc list of morons who made it.

    M Tyson, agree he was/is a moron. He did have the two (2) weapons of success plus a mentor, Cus D’Amato, who substituted for his lack of brains. Tyson, the man, did have extraordinary talent, a natural boxer, and extraordinary drive, he got up at 04:30 everyday to go running, why? because no one (1) else was doing it. So I begrudgingly give you Tyson.

    R. Kelly is a moron? He’s been successful at producing, he sings, plays multiple instruments, writes songs and carries 21 award nominations and he’s a moron. Doing so little in life must mean he has no drive neither. Okay, if you insist I’ll give you Kelly.

    Fantasia Barrino dropping out of school makes her a moron? Okay. Dropping out of the USA public education system probably helped her more than hindered her. But if you think lack of schooling makes one (1) not smart, that’s your privilege. I’ll grant you Barrino.

    Hell, I’ll give them all to you. You win.
  • Vipor_GG Jesferk... 2012/09/20 04:10:48

    Again, I didn't call anyone a moron.

    "Dropping out of the USA public education system probably helped her more than hindered her."
    On this I totally agree.

    It has nothing to do with winning or loosing. I simply pointed out that you can't judge intelligence by wealth or lack of wealth alone.

    What does his money have to do with moronic "documentaries"? The money just shows that he has a lot of morons following him like the liberal sheep that they are.

    Money has nothing to do with his documentaries. You might wish to stick with the conversation. What the other guy started with was Moore was a moron. I replied in the negative because a moron in normative cases will not be able to make serious money. I don't care for his documentaries either but that doesn't change the fact that the guy knows how to make money which necessarily, if done legally, takes more talent and drive than the average person possesses. Both traits not included in the definition of a moron.

    Most of them have brains that have been ravished by drug abuse and the political wisdom of the average "Joe Blow" :)

    "Any one who listens to celebrities about politics is too stupid to vote."

    Ironically, the 40th president if the US and the 38th governors of California and Minnesota were celebrities as well. Other than that, I agree.
