Birthday Larry Flynt. He was 58 on Wednesday (11/1/00). Then
the next day I heard his distinctive whiny voice on the Howard Stern Show.
The slur in his voice, the result of being shot by an attempted assasin
back in 1978.
you get past the fact that most people consider him to be a slime since
he's a pornographer, you can begin to actually hear what he has to
say. When I used to whack off to Hustler's wideopen landscape shots,
I thought the guy was God. What a hero. Champion of Free Speech.
was normally the dirtiest men's mag you could find around my little town.
The layouts were glossy, the editorializing was sensational, and the women
were slutty. I memorized every mole and nipple, and kept my private
stash of poon in a secret place.
that fateful day when they disappeared. Man, I was horny as hell,
and had to fantasize using only my imagination...bummer. I couldn't
ask my mom. I never did find out what happened to them.
back to the present. Most polite society shuns guys like Larry Flynt.
They automatically discount anything he says as lunatic ravings.
Remember when he offered a million dollars for anyone who would come forward
and admit they had sex with a politician? Several marriages and careers
took the off ramp thanks to that bit of PR genious.
comes the latest Flynt bombshell. It's an allegation he claims he
has offered, but is being ignored by all the mainstream media. Did
George W. Bush really get a young woman pregnant and force her to have
an abortion back in the early '70s? Larry Flynt says he has the
proof. So far, there's been no mention of the charges on any of the
major media...except here at GetDetails.com and the Howard Stern show.
Stern tried unsuccessfully to get some sort of response from Bush headquarters,
but surprisingly, no one who spoke English was available to discuss the
a bonanza for the Democrats...oh wait, this came from "who"? No comment.
What a total betrayal of Mr. Bush's carefully constructed façade,
champion of the Right To Life fanatics. To not only force a woman
to abort his unborn child, but also to have done so BEFORE Rowe v. Wade...when
it was actually against the law in the nation he seeks to lead.
smells real to me. It seems to have validity, that a man who never
actually had to make his own way in this world, to step on and over people
on his way to the ultimate power trip, President of his own private country.
I am not an Al Gore fan. I do believe he's sincere in his desire
to help us clean up the environment, and continue the prosperity Mr. Clinton
has fostered. I do listen when Al tells me that Bush wants to squander
the budget surplus on tax breaks that overwhelmingly benefit the richest
Americans, who incidentally vote overwhelmingly Republican.
your Daddy ever tell you how America works? How the working people
historically vote Democratic, and their bosses, the one's who make an average
of 678 times more than their lowest paid employees, vote Republican.
Did he tell you that if a Republican president is in office, we're much
more likely to be in a major military conflict? You know why?
The Armed Forces spend unimaginable amounts of money...cash that used to
be in your pockets. You know where it ends up once they spend it?
In the pockets of the richest Americans...those who own or control the
defense contractors and their allied industries.
fact is, there is a finite amount of money in circulation. If we
just print more, like they did during the Reagan spendfest, we get inflation.
So the Fed holds the line on that sort of thing. To perpetuate the
Rich get Richer syndrome, the money gets sucked out of your hands, and
into the grasp of those who really need it...those who truly deserve it...those
Millionaires who support George W. Bush.
though we will never get an acknowlegement from the Bush league, it's a
fascinating concept to ponder. Did Mr. Bush actually do what Larry
Flynt says he did? Nahhh, that would mean he simply parrots whatever
propaganda necessary to get elected...and everyone knows that would be
