It is with no irony whatsoever that I recognize that this weekend has produced some 160 million dollars in box office reciepts for a film that depicts a post-apocalyptic America in which teens engage in deathmatches. This, is 70s style malaise reflected in the trope of disaster films.
I have been considering a cruel solution to the moral perniciousness of this feral fetish and it pushes me towards the Swiftian. Call it a Wahabian imperative which just happens to coincide with what I see to be the purposes of liberty. It is a hitlist. When Bill Clinton, whom I never trusted as a candidate was elected President, I took some consolation in the fact that at least he wasn't old as dirt. These days I am both encouraged by the fact that I'm getting old but increasingly annoyed by the old ass folks sucking all of the oxygen out of the public square. So let's identify some targets. If you want real change, get rid of the following people.
All of these people are over 55 years old and have been famous for more than 20 years. Get rid of them.
Martin Scorsese, Cher, Marv Albert, Barbara Walters, George Will
Donald Trump, Daniel Schorr, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Jim Hill
Dr. Phil, Oprah Winfrey, Haley Barbour, Bill Clinton, Tom Cruise
Howard Stern, Rosie O'Donnell, Cokie Roberts, Al Gore, Bono
You get the picture
