fired

*single tear rolls down my cheek, I stick my tongue out the corner of my mouth to taste it*

Piers-Morgan-CNN

“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it,” he said. “That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”

Piers-Morgan-Eyes-Closed-Mouth-Open-Ears-OffYou and I had a good run Piers.  There’s always a place at ENDO for you, if you want to spend the day making iced tea lemonades, snacks, and cleaning up after me.

Thoughts?  Are you going to miss him?

A single tear simultaneously rolls down the cheek of millions…

Sources tell FTVLive that CNN Boss Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.”  Morgan signed a one year extension to his contract and as time winds down, Zucker is looking for someone to takeover his time slot.  Word is that Zucker really wants Katie Couric in that slot. Couric should be available soon as many expect this is the last year her talk show “Katie” will be on the air.

Well, Katie Couric will be easier on the eyes, and hopefully not as ignorant regarding gun control.

I wonder if Piers will somehow continue on his crusade against guns?  Head of the Brady Campaign maybe?  Will he still read ENDO?  LOL of course he will… that question was obviously rhetorical.

Over these videos which are still getting panties and manties in knots since his suspension:

0:00 – “Caught on video cursing and firing off guns.” – haha he was hardly “caught” on video.

1:38 – His life and the lives of his family members have been threatened?  Seriously WTF?  Why?  I don’t think the videos are indicative of how a law enforcement officer should represent themselves, never mind a chief… but at the end of the day no one deserves to have their life threatened over something like this.  I can’t imagine how the threat would have even been delivered… “I saw your video and I didn’t like it *insert threat here*“.  Some people are so dumb, it’s painful.

1:45 – Doesn’t regret the videos he made

2:05 – Provide guns to children! haha yea that will go over well.  He clarified it a bit with the “if need be” part, which I do agree with.  I’ve always said kids should have a healthy respect for firearms and know how to use them.  Typical media blowing everything out of proportion initially like “Kessler wants to give guns to children as long as they can use them” *eye roll*.

Mark-Kessler-Loudmouth-Douchebag2:40 – “Kessler also thinks citizens should also not rely on police to save them.” – Church.

3:00 – Kessler says he will get a buyout of $100k from his down if he’s forced out.  Quite a bit of ammo money to make some more troll videos with.

Thoughts?  I feel like Kessler probably has some good ideas, but his delivery in the few videos he put out was so awful and abrasive they were hard to grasp.

According to Ermey, he was fired by Geico because he bashed President Barack Obama in December 2010, saying his administration was trying to “impose socialism” on the American people and was “destroying the country.”

If you don’t remember R. Lee Ermey’s Geico commercial where he played a therapist you can check it out here.

Is it legal to fire someone because of their political beliefs?  My guess is that wasn’t the official reason, so I’m surprised he even said that on camera.

An actual sign which is posted on the wall in the main yard of the Thomson Correctional Centre in Thomson, Illinois:

That’s a sign I bet the Brady campaign could really get behind. In real life I’d recommend finding cover, then possibly returning fire depending on the situation.

If I got my girlfriend one of these, she would likely want to punch me:

For this work, I collected spent bullets at a firing range and made jewelery out of them.

The rings that were created remove the bullet from its original function and they surprisingly turn into a bejeweled object and emphasize the beauty and aesthetics of the bullet when it is distanced from its surroundings

Every bullet retains memories and traces of the journey it underwent from the moment it was fired until it was picked up.

Interesting…

I have two concerns when it comes to this particular art/jewelery:

  1. Some of the corners look incredibly sharp.
  2. Am I the only one extremely conscious of lead poisoning?  At the very least I’d say those should have a clear coat on them for safety reasons.
