I have personal guidelines when it comes to life and in death..
Particularly the topic of famous people's passing.
For instance I will never mourn the death of murderers, pedophiles, rapists or other common criminal scum no matter how good they were at their given vocation...
So sorry O.J. and Robert Blake - I won't be sobbing when either of you die..
I won't even mourn Jack Nicholson who lent his home while away so Roman could have a place to fuck the 12yr old girl, then defended and protected the director to the hilt
So no tears for you Jack..
The absolute worst kind of former drug user is one who pretends its all smooth sailing without even the slightest urge to re-use and won't even advise people not to use because its more important he/she not appear hypocritical than possibly save a life
You were a drug addict, it took your life and your ultimate end was no different than that of trash on skid row.
All that money couldn't bring happiness and inner-contentment; all those sycophants around you and no one was strong enough to tell you 'No' and everyone is supposed to cry and mourn your passing..
Your worthless PR person was told to lie and say your plane landed and was taken to a hospital for the Flu!! And then you wouldn't allow yourself to be admitted because the hospital couldn't give you a private room??
Just another drug addicted black man to add to the stats..
For instance Michael Jackson..
I didn't hold it against the self-proclaimed "King" of Pop that he died of drugs but of course I couldn't mourn a pedophile so once again I was on the sidelines when all the tributes poured in back in the day.
People say in indignation 'Who are you to judge another?!'
Well I answer two ways..
2) If I am deemed with the power to sit on a jury and decide a person's fate; freedom or jail, life incarceration or death based merely on the controlled presentation of evidence in a courtroom, I'm perfectly capable of deciding a person who does not use drugs is strong of body and character and one who is addicted is weak
Really the biggest problem with society today is people's lack of social judgment. Everything is tolerated and accepted.. Any behavior or vice or belief no matter how anti-norm
There is no peer pressure of any kind.
One day in the future when harder drugs like cocaine and heroin are legalized and an adult can not be arrested for dating/fucking someone underage, just thank the Progressives..
And before you laugh, did you ever see a time 30 years ago where one day marijuana could be smoked openly with no consequence and gays could middle-finger thousands of years of religion and tradition by calling their partnerships 'marriage'?
Most celebrities I don't give two shits about.. They're vain, arrogant, mostly uneducated (what other career can you make a good living with only a HS diploma?) politically ignorant (98% of them blindly loyal Democrats who spout whatever their told)
But occasionally someone passes away and I genuinely feel sad
Someone like Garry Shandling .. Unlike Prince, he was a real loss..
She was a former addict but she never glorified it. Rather she spent her post-recovery days trying to help people who were dealing with drugs and mental health issues like she suffered through
Now that's a good person..
