Meh. My stepdaughter is recovering from Coronavirus (she's doing well), and I couldn't care less what David Geffen is doing on his $1/2 billion yacht. People are just overly sensitive.

He might fined that he needs to return to land sooner than he thought and every harbour is basically naiiled shut.

No no no, that's only how things work for the poors.  I'm sure if he made the right phone calls and greased the right palms he could arrange a delivery of food, fuel, and other consumables to the end of a pier and pick it up by tender.

Thai king self-isolates in Alpine hotel with harem of 20 women amid pandemic


That seems... unwise.  You know some of those women are sneaking out for a bit of bouncy fun time with some of the guards, or ski instructors, or whoever.  I don't care how much of a manly man he claims to be.  Keeping 20 women satisfied is beyond human capability.

Or maybe they're all bi, or all lesbians who tolerate his occasional nocturnal visits in exchange for living in a palace with 19 other lesbians, or some combination of the two?  This requires more consideration.  I'll google Thai lesbians and consider this further in my bunk.

Depends which verse of the original you're comparing it to as that doesn't scan the same way all the way through so it would appear as a hybrid. I have trouble with breaking metrical contracts, but then again that's because my major was in Romantic era poetry and not modern lyricism.

Alright, that cracked me up.

Read Game Change if you haven't gotten around to it yet.

---

THE OLD JACK WARNER house sat on Angelo Drive at the top of Beverly Hills. Built in the thirties, it now belonged to the billionaire entertainment mogul David Geffen, who had spent much of the nineties remodeling the estate from top to bottom. Inside, the walls were covered with world-class art: Rauschenbergs, de Koonings, Pollocks, Gorkys, a Jasper Johns target, a Jasper Johns flag.

On the night of February 20, 2007, Obama was there for a private dinner in his honor. Earlier that evening, Geffen and his partners in DreamWorks SKG, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, had hosted a $1.3 million fund-raiser for him at the Beverly Hilton, attended by some three hundred members of the glitterati. From the time the event was announced, it had drawn notice, signifying that at least a portion of Hollywood, including some longtime backers of the Clintons, was attracted to Obama. Privately, Hillary and her aides were shaken by the symbolism and practical implications of such an encroachment on a world that she'd spent years cultivating. She considered people such as the DreamWorks chiefs more than mere donors; she thought of them as friends. The event for Obama was nothing short of a betrayal.

After the fund-raiser, a more intimate group of thirty-five repaired to Geffen's mansion, spreading themselves out across three tables. Among them were Michelle Obama, Spielberg and Katzenberg, former Disney and Fox studio head Joe Roth, William Morris Agency chairman Jim Wiatt, Walk the Line writer and director James Mangold, Sleepless in Seattle producer Lynda Obst, and New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.

As the dinner wound down, Geffen approached Obama, holding a printout of a Web page with a column by Dowd that would be appearing in the next day's Times. The piece was all about Geffen's disenchantment with the Clintons. It contained harsh words, and lots of them, that would reverberate through the political world for months. Handing it to Obama, Geffen said, "I think I should show you this."

Geffen and Dowd were a colorful pair of friends-a mischievous dyad, each with a long and complicated relationship with the Clintons. Coquettish and flame-haired, Dowd was liberal, but never earnest or doctrinaire, and her scorn for hypocrisy and self-infatuation trumped any ideological predispositions she possessed. She had won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1999, for a series of columns that folded, spindled, and mutilated Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair.

Geffen's relationship with Clinton began to change toward the end of Bill's White House years. Before that, the mogul and the president had been tight, the former raising millions for the latter and sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom more than once. Clinton would phone Geffen all the time-at home, in the car, late at night-and would often stay with Geffen when he was in Hollywood.

Already troubled by Clinton's flaws, Geffen was pushed over the edge in 2001, when the outgoing president pardoned fugitive financier Marc Rich but didn't do the same for Leonard Peltier-a Native American activist who some in Hollywood believed was wrongly convicted and sentenced to life in prison for murdering two federal agents. Geffen lobbied Clinton for the Peltier pardon, and saw Clinton's divergent treatment of Peltier and Rich as a sign of corrupted values. In the years that followed, Geffen heard constant Hollywood chatter about Clinton's exploits with Ron Burkle, who lived around the corner from Geffen in Beverly Hills. When people asked Geffen if he thought Clinton was still fooling around, Geffen would reply, "Do you think the Pope's a Catholic?"

Geffen, meanwhile, had always admired Hillary, regarded her as smart and capable. He contributed to her Senate campaign in 2000, but never felt the personal spark. By contrast, he was dazzled by Obama from the moment he watched the 2004 convention speech. Soon afterward, Geffen called Obama and predicted he would run for president one day. The next year, he invited Obama to his house for dinner with the Katzenbergs and Warren Beatty-and was swept away by Obama's cool demeanor, his lack of entitlement or self-importance, which Geffen found a refreshing departure from the Clintons.

Early in 2005, while making a public appearance in New York at the 92nd Street Y, Geffen was asked a question about Hillary by a member of the audience. "She can't win and she's an incredibly polarizing figure," Geffen replied. "And ambition is just not a good enough reason." The crowd broke into applause, which surprised Geffen, who'd always assumed that the Upper East Side was Clinton country.

Dowd, in the audience, was surprised, too, and started hounding Geffen to let her write a column about what he had said. Over the course of two years, she asked him about it again and again, but Geffen always demurred. "What, are you crazy?" he would tell her. "No!" Dowd understood what a big story Geffen disowning the Clintons would be. So she kept on pushing. Dining at his house the night before the February fund-raiser for Obama, Dowd implored, Let's do an interview. When it's over, if you don't want me to use it, I won't. What do you have to lose? Geffen finally relented.

The interview lasted fifteen minutes. Dowd left and wrote her column, then called Geffen and read it to him. The column quoted him saying that Hillary would be unable to "bring the country together." That her husband was "a reckless guy who gave his enemies a lot of ammunition to hurt him." That the Clintons were "unwilling to stand for the things that they genuinely believe in. Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling."

Dowd warned Geffen that the column would be explosive. She asked if he wanted to take any of his words back. "Absolutely not," Geffen answered, fully dispensing with his past reticence. "That's exactly what I said, that's exactly what I feel."

Now, as Geffen showed the text of the column to Obama, he wondered how the candidate would react. Obama read it, gave Geffen a wide-eyed what-have-you-done look, and laughed. This is going to cause some conversation, Obama said dryly. They're not going to be happy with this.

"I hope it doesn't cause too much trouble," Geffen said.

"Trouble for whom?" Obama replied and laughed again.

---

There was more to it, but Geffen put the first crack in Secretary Hillary Clinton's armor by expressing what a lot of people were thinking behind the scenes an  he was instrumental in getting Hollywood money to largely side with the person who would later occupy the Oval Office rather than his competitor who had previously been the recipient.

Away from everyone, not having contact, is great.

Taking (or having someone take) an aerial portrait of your yacht against a sunset to humblebrag to the public about your Caribbean vacation, under the guise of concern for our safety, during the worst pandemic of the last 100 years, is indicative that he's an out-of-touch, self-centered dick.

He has more money than the people commenting, so he's obviously a piece of shiat that needs to die and give them that money.  He doesn't deserve it!

/whether or not he does, does not, whatever - all that is 100% irrelevant to the outrage crowd
//he has it, therefore he's evil to be using it
///that's all it takes

Addendum:  This has been worrying me for a while now.  While there are asshole megarich running around, that's slowly been changing to, "Have a lot of money?  Fark you die and give me your shiat because why don't I have all that stuff I deserve it more even though I've done shiat to achieve that gimme gimme gimme."  That kind of crap is going to be another epidemic one of these days, and it's going to kill a lot of damn people just like this one.  While some of those dead people are going to be, "Oh, good, you deserved it you prick." the vast majority of the victims are going to be people who's only crime is having more resources than their neighbor.  Because that makes them evil - regardless of the circumstances.

Once again - fark good, bad, or indifferent - that's not the point with this trend.  The point seems to be, "Have more whatever than me?  Fark you gimme your shiat." regardless of how they got it, what they do with it, or anything at all other than "You gots stuff! You bad die!"  That is not going to work, people.

Okay. Maybe.
But at least acknowledge that wealth comes from other people's Pockets.
I say this because, we hate the homeless and have made it defacto against the law to be poor/homeless.
Which I get, to a point. But, our system makes two kinds of people. Rich and poor. Rich people should not hate the people who lost so they could be winners.
I mean we hate communism because they are all Losers.
So at least be kind to the people that lost so you could feel like and live like a winner?????? Otherwise it's guillotine for you mofo.
