Once again the wisdom of Charles Barkley is proven accurate
« on: October 15, 2015, 09:22:13 AM »
Remember Charles Barkley's famous screed about "I am not a role model!"?  I happened to agree with it then and I still agree with it now.

I never understood why people need or would want to idolize "famous" people...athletes, movie stars...that ilk...

I see no problem admiring an athletes ability and accomplishments in their profession, but to worship them as heroes in all things and ignore/justify/condone their failings???

I never got that, still don't.

So, more proof here - http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-lamar-odom-las-vegas-brothel-20151013-story.html

Man, what an effed up mess.  There but the grace of God...

It's easy to feel sorry for folks...it's harder to offer constructive criticism, especially in latter day America with its pc/diversity/multi-culti BS!

But, lets be clear, this is no role model...unless you like role models who will turn you into a mess like this.  Intentional self destruction is not to be applauded, appeased or condoned.

This is no hero.

You know who my heroes are?

My father, who never knew his real father, whose mother felt little towards her son, who grew up on tough streets and still became a man of honor and decency and raised kids the right way and never once mistreated his wife or shamed his family.

My uncle who survived WWII from France to Germany and gave countless generations peace and prosperity.

My sister for overcoming her own challenges in life the least of not is becoming an exceptional RN and a mother and raising a special needs kid.

Those are heroes.

Who are yours?  I bet like me they are people like this, not anybody like Lamar Odom.

And he was married to one of the Kardashians.

Do I need to say anything else?

Note to self: If ever in Vegas, don't try cocaine, herbal viagra, and hookers. At least not simultaneously.

Gunsmith is of the opinion that the Kardashian women are an evil cult (and he's serious about the "evil"); every man they get involved with is ruined.

I think there is enough evidence to run with that...I would amend it to the extent that it helps if the men are weak-minded...

I have no idea.

As far as I can tell, and I am not paying that much attention...typically when I hear "Kardashian" I involuntarily change channels or tune out...but I think they got rich by doing a bogus reality show that fleeced the very people watching them who still follow their every antic like it means something and for which the rest of us in society has determined that both groups have no redeeming qualities so we largely ignore them.
