So, how much does it cost to insult you? (You can insult me for free.)

Commenting on this is going to ruin my reputation, draw enemies, and possibly get me kicked off Blogger…Okay, I’m convinced.

I wasn’t going to comment on the "Michael Richards Scandal," until I heard the two men he flambéed were thinking of suing him (if he didn’t allow some retired judge to set an amount for monetary damages). With the risk of starting a my-country-is-stupider-than-yours war with Romulus Crowe, this political correct bullshit has got to go. I’ve seen the tape, heard the commentary (can’t get away from it), and seen the interviews, and not once have I heard anyone tell these two losers to get over it.

There, I said it. I’m sorry, but "waah, waah, waah, he insulted me," isn’t a reason to sue somebody. Any judge that rules in their favor should be bullwhipped, shot, stabbed, hung, poisoned, and drawn and quartered. Give me a break. I understand wanting an apology, but money too? This wouldn’t even be an issue if the man wasn’t famous

But I’m not mad. I’m not going to go to Def Comedy Jam and heckle the man performing so he’ll insult me and I can sue him. Because unlike the two gentlemen in question here, I am not a low-life, opportunistic, money grubbing, piece of shit rolling down the gutter of life. Aw damn, now they’re going to sue me (or is all of that okay because I didn’t refer to the color of their skin).

Until they take it, I’ll be in my trailer.

No, I don't think the UK is any more stupid than the USA, or any other country.

It's just that we seem to be so keen to publicise our stupidity.

Some regimes keep the press on a tight leash. While that's obviously a generally bad thing, I wonder if it happens because there's one sensible government official in those countries, who thinks 'Maybe we should keep the stupid stuff quiet...'

Sensible officials? I don't know, maybe you just have better reporters (media) to dig up the stupidity.

After all, they are just worried about selling papers (commercial spots, whatever), not about the nation's image.
