I HAVE WATCHED THIS FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AND JUST SHAKE MY HEAD AT THE NOSENSE OF IT ALL.

METHINKS IT IS WORTHY TO NOTE THAT THE LION'S SHARE OF THE VISITORS TO YOUR BLOG AS OF LATE GO STRAIGHT TO THIS PARTICULAR PAGE.

FOR THE RECORD I DON'T THINK IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE STATEMENT YOU QUOTED BUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HOLLYWOOD AND ITS SUCCESSFUL AND VERY FICTIONAL SPIN ON THIS WONDERFUL OLD WORLD.

THE SAD STATE OF OUR AFFAIRS IS SUCH THAT PEOPLE ARE GOOGLING HOLLYWOOD DRIVEL INSTEAD OF WATCHING OUT FOR THEIR OWN BEST INTERESTS.

NOT THAT IT IS A BAD THING BUT THE INTERNET AS HOLLYWOOD LARGELY THRIVES ON ENTERTAINMENT NOT SERIOUS COMMUNICATIONS. HOWEVER IT IS STILL A VERY VALUABLE TOOL FOR A PRECIOUS FEW AROUND IN DIRE NEED OF SOME SOCIAL JUSTICE.

WHY DO I THINK THIS WAY ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR BLOG? IT IS BECAUSE AFTER HITTING THIS WEBPAGE IN WHICH DOWNEY IS MENTIONED THE FOLKS DO NOT SEEM TO GO ELSWHERE WITHIN YOUR BLOG TO SEEK MORE OF YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS OF THE SAD STATE OF THE WORLD AS IT NOW STANDS.

FURTHERMORE NOT ONE SOUL HAS BOTHERED TO OFFER A COMMENT EITHER GOOD OR BAD. IT IS ONLY MET WITH INDIFFERENCE EVEN THOUGH IT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR POST LATELY.

IN MY HUMBLE OPINION IT IS NEWS OF HOLLYWOOD AND GOSSIP THE SHEEPLE ARE SEEKING FOR ENTERTAINMENT SAKE SO THE CAN ESCAPE REALITY FOR AWHILE AND ALLOW APATHY TO RULE THE DAY AS IT USUALLY DOES.

DOES ANYONE THINK OR CARE ABOUT WHAT THE FICTIONAL SUPERHERO WAS POSSIBLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH? I DOUBT IT. NEITHER DO I BUT I CAN GUESS AT THE STORY LINE. IT IS QUITE LIKELY JUST MORE OF THE SAME OLD SAME OLD SERVED UP BY HOLLYWOOD TO KEEP US FAT DUMB AND HAPPY AFTER WE HAVE PAID OUR TAXES AND MUST NOW SUPPORT THE CORPORATE ELITE WITH THE REST OF THE FRUITS OF OUR LABORS. THE LIKES OF THE HIGHLY OVER PAID MR. DOWNEY WHO HAS LOTS OF TROUBLE DEALING WITH REALITY ON HIS OWN BEHALF DOES HIS JOB TO MAKE US HAPPY AND THE RICH EVEN RICHER. HE EARNS HIS KEEP AND FAME COMES WITH A BIG PRICE TAG AT A PERSONAL LEVEL.

I DO DECLARE THIS IS KIND OF A DOWNER (PUN)BUT I MUST ADMIT IF YOU DON'T FIND SOME FUN IN THIS MADNESS YOU WILL GO CRAZY. THUS WE MIGHT AS WELL GET A CHUCKLE AND THE SILLY SHEEPLE AND THE ANTICS OF MR. DOWNEY. HE TRULY IS A FINE ACTOR DESPITE ALL HIS TROUBLES HE HAS HAD IN THE PAST AS A MAN. PLUS THAT SHIT IN HIS PRIVATE LIFE IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS ANYWAY.

THEREFORE MY HAT IS OFF TO ROBBY BABY BUT I STILL WON'T PAY TO WATCH THE DUMB MOVIE. I AIN'T THAT DUMB JUST YET. IF ANYONE CARES I DO UNDERSTAND THE MEANING AND THE NEED OF THE BLOG ABOUT WHAT SOME FOLKS DEEM TO BE IMPORTANT. SO IN RESPONSE I WILL SAY HERE HERE OR AMEND.

ANYONE OUT THERE WANNA ARGUE ME? HOW ABOUT AGREE?

ANYONE? ANYONE?

First, I have to disclose I developed a little crush on Robert Downey Jr. after seeing the movie Iron Man just so that's out in the open.

But for me as an alcoholic who hasn't drank in two years, I find what Downey has done to turn his life around interesting and something I personally am rooting for. All these people in the world yap yap yapping about how everyone is so damn apatheic and lazy about changing our broken planet when the majority of people don't have what it takes to enact and follow through with change within themselves, never mind take on the challenge of fixing the world.

I can't speak for anyone else traipsing through this blog regarding the hows or whys they ended up here. I guess Robert Downey Jr. can't be finally having a good go of things and have people be interested in that and/or his movie if there is still bad things going on in the world? Let's all stop having fun until we set it straight.

now that is funny but is proof that I was pretty wiped out on the drugs the smiling bastards injected in my arse while five not so tough gugh guys held me down.

I know my spelling is usually atrocious and i don't much it i can get my point across. But Hell I didn't even spell amend correctly for the god fearing person in Georgia and furthermore I forgot I posted the comment above until my gmail account just informed me.
