I'm fine.  I just miss you, guys!  Happy Thanksgiving! Give Jack a big, big hug from me.  That's it from me. Love Claud. (hangs up phone and sighs) God, that was moronic!"

Not because I got a problem with bitter, predictable, whiny millionaire disc jokeys complaining about celebrities or how tough their life is......I'm not offended that they act like it's my responsibility to protect their rights to pick on the weak, like pack animals, or or or that we're supposed to defend their freedom of speech, when they don't give a fuck about yours or mine.

Co-worker (Bryce Johnson); "So, you're against freedom of speech, now? That's in the Bill of Rights, man!"

I would defend their freedom of speech to tell uninspired, bigoted, blow-job, gay bashing, racist and rape jokes all under the guise of being edgy. But that's not the edge. That is what sells.  They couldn't possibly pander any harder or be more commercially main stream because this is the 'oh no, you didn't say that, generation.'  Where a shocking comment has more weight than the truth. No one has any shame anymore and we're supposed to celebrate it...."
