Common Sense in the Last Place You'd Look

A short take in the Urinal Sentinel reveals that rapper 50 Cent came out against Kanye West and his ridiculous comments made on the Hurricane Katrina telethon.

In an interview on ContactMusic.com, 50 Cent said "I think people responded to it(Hurricane Katrina) the best way they can." He went on to say "What Kanye West was saying, I don't know where that came from." 50 Cent also went on to say later that Hurricane Katrina was an act of God.

I am surprised. Bewildered if you will. Usually you don't get commentary like this out of anyone in the show business, much less a rapper. I applaud 50 Cent for his common sense. Sad that I have to do these types of things nowadays.

You have to consider that perhaps 50 is only saying the antithesis of Kayne to invoke a gang-style debate. Granted I too felt amazed, I still feel there is an underlying initiative.

At least he didn't bash Bush with unintelligent ramblings.

That DID occur to me, but I really don't care that much to go into it.

It is typical for the Radical Right Wingnut Republican Neo Conservatives to go straight for censorship VVWKB.

If there is no opposition then they can maintain their false sense of power.

I feel sorry for Republicans who now have taken to saying "I'm not a Republican, I'm Conservative..."

They have to say that now because Bush is a Fiscal Disaster, a foreign policy disaster, an economic disaster, a bureacratic disaster, an intelligence agency disaster, a homeland security disaster, and a social disaster.

If they do not distance themselves from Bush they will loose power.

I would not be surprised if DCS "black lists" all opposition voices. It's an easy solution to his problem.

Then he can sit in his office, car, and living room and continue to think the world is as he perceives.

Nice choice of words DCS with "Black Listed". That's the "soft bigotry" we hear so much about...

I guess you can only expect that mentality from people who follow William Bennett.

Hey DCS, I am advocating that we eliminate car salesmen and go factory direct and outsource all call centers to India.

Your services may not be needed much longer. I hope you have a backup plan.

There certainly will not be any "gummit" handouts for you.

Hey, how do you feel about the "gummits" move to cut mortgage interest deductions from taxes.

Are you down with that? It's a great conservative idea...

Your mortgage interest tax deduction is in peril

You are very good at turning things around. A great "spinster" if you will...

I have ALWAYS referred to myself as a conservative as I don't vote strict party lines.

I DON'T agree with everything Bush has done.

I DON'T like paying more taxes. Ergo, if I had a mortgage, I wouldn't appreciate them taking away that tax deduct.

If my position was eliminated, I would find another industry relatively quickly as I have had several job offers because of the level of customer service I provide. You can advocate to get rid of me all you want, it's never gonna happen.

Furthermore, if they DO set up call centers in India to replace me, have fun. Middle Easterners negotiate like nobodies business. Plus, have fun selling your trade and arranging for you own "Get Me Done" financing.

'Nuf Said!

BTW, I believe it was you Poli who complemented me on NOT banning you and your cronies from my site like so many others. We can play nice here and not pull that spin b.s. out. Okay?

Ok DCS....

But I can still get my quote online, go to Rock Honda, and not talk to a salesman.

I am glad to hear you do not agree with everything Bush has done, that you do not like paying more taxes, and more importantly that you do have a back up plan if things should go sour.

Good on you for not depending on the gummit'.

Yeah, we have an internet quote guy too. Incedentaly, he IS a salesman, if you could call him that. To us here, he is more of an order taker....

Car lingo...

To answer the man under the rock:

50 cent - A black rap star with more bullet scars than fingers.

Kayne West - A black liberal rap star that decided to spew his racist accusations on a live TV concert to support the disaster victims of Katrina. Mike Meyers, the cohost, nearly shat his pants after hearing Kayne leave script.

This blogger kept up with the stories and follow-ups.
