Ironic tag?
 
2007-05-24 4:54:02 PM  
Will not click link...not that there's anything wrong with that.

/on an unrelated note, can someone post the pic of that tank in Iraq tagged with Wolverines! on it?
 
2007-05-24 4:54:14 PM  
ahh..its always refreshing to see that celebrities are just as stupid as the rest of us.
 
2007-05-24 4:55:10 PM  
But did he lick 'em?
 
2007-05-24 4:55:37 PM  
Lick it, cons.

Good stuff. This guy is pretty wise...

Seemed okay for a Hollywood type.

"I'm volunteering. I'm volunteering to have less rights."

There's the neocon mantra right there. Thank you, rock n' roll jew.

Oooh, kinky!

"but the Vietnam vets that came back were spat at"

Still trottin' that old urban legend around, eh?

O'Reilly and I get along just fine-we agree on foreign policy.

Wait. Are we talking about the same Bill O'Reilly who said that we should treat Iraq the way Saddam did?
 
2007-05-24 5:00:03 PM  
"I want you to search my anal cavity"

I hope Mr. Simmons remembers that the next time he goes on vacation.
 
2007-05-24 5:00:10 PM  
Was he seriously complaining about the troops NOT getting spit on? "Apathy" is just another way of saying "left alone to lead their lives" ain't it?

Instead of misplaced hippy anger, people get pissed at bush and his stupid regime.

How is that not an improvement over assaulting what was basically a conscript for participating in a war they got drafted into?

Simmons might be a smart guy, but that doesn't prevent him from being an idiot apparently.

2007-05-24 5:00:36 PM  
wow

I'm not sure he has ANY redeeming qualities after reading that. shiatty musician. retarded neocon.

at least Ted Nugent made decent music even though he's a complete farkhead.
 
2007-05-24 5:00:56 PM  
This guy is a retard. "I'm volunteering to give up more freedoms".

Enough said.
 
2007-05-24 5:01:43 PM  
"it's a volunteer army"

...obviously, that means that we should treat them as a disposable commodity since they don't mind dying for no reason. Let's support our troops by letting more die in a war that isn't even their fight!
 
2007-05-24 5:01:47 PM  
So does Gene Simmons' best friend, Gene Simmons.
 
2007-05-24 5:02:14 PM  
Oh my gosh, Gene Simmons owns.

And if the cop tells you to move and you don't move, he'll bat you over the head. That's the way it should be.

And I wish I had a bat for every one of those guys who jumps up and down behind a newscaster on the street doing a story about a fire. There's some moron jumping up and down. There should be asshole police with bats. As soon as you start misbehaving, you should get the shiat beaten out of you. Put me in charge. I'm telling you, I'd fix all that.


/Someone with some sense.

I'm volunteering to have less rights. This whole notion that you can have all the rights in the world while there's an emergency is nonsense. That's why there are emergency hours that are given to law enforcement during times of war. And if the cop tells you to move and you don't move, he'll bat you over the head. That's the way it should be.

Wait, wtf? Gene Simmons is out of his farking mind. Theres a vast difference between sacrificing unrelated and fundamental freedoms (Habeas Corpus), than allowing a cop to hit someone who's resisting arrest or whatever.

I regret that I have but one anus to lose for my country

I falafel about that.

It must be said... his kids are gorgeous, yet down-to-earth cool people. Case in point:

All of this is made even more incredible when you consider that they have more money than the Vatican, their father is a shameless man-whore, and their mother is a former Playboy pinup.
 
2007-05-24 5:04:28 PM  
You'd think someone who has lived through the Vietnam era would have a much keener sense of bullshiat detection.

Even Linkin Park, a bunch of screaming kids, seem to have a clearer idea of what's going on today in their song Hands Held High.
 
2007-05-24 5:04:38 PM  
If cops can't beat people for getting in live news shots, the terrorists have won.
 
2007-05-24 5:04:50 PM  
What an embarrassment.

"I'm volunteering to have less freedom."

That's just unamerican. He should move somewhere where that's a requirement.
 
2007-05-24 5:05:06 PM  
I can not remember a time when any celebrity opened their mouth about politics and made any sense.

Wouldn't it be fun for about 10 seconds to engage Paris Hilton in some sort of deep political banter?

//Talk amongst yourselves.
 
2007-05-24 5:05:14 PM  
I am fully on board with his "hippy beating" policy.

I like the part where he said that the true solution to terrorism is to send deadly robotic spiders after the terrorists.

I'm willing to listen to whatever the man says because he was in such a talented band. I mean these hard rockers brought us the song, "Beth." How could a memeber of the band that brought us Beth not be right about sacrificing freedoms at the alter of the neocons.

WAIT

Which Gene Simmons are we talking about?

Mr Kiss or Mr kissy face workout guy?

Now wait a minute, I'm Chaim Witz and I most certainly DID NOT approve this message.

He is just trying to balance what many of us feel. His heart is going out to the troops who volunteer to serve, while most of the population does not support the war they are ordered to fight. If I were in the military, this attitude or lack of support of the cause would probably be a little oft-putting. Its a very messy and complicated situation, I don't think I am going to volunteer for random butt searches though.
 
2007-05-24 5:09:17 PM  
Oh shut the fark up, Sunny Ray. No one's in the mood for your shiat today.
 
2007-05-24 5:10:28 PM  
I would also like it to be legal to beat hippies myself, as a matter of fact I would like that to be my profession. I have a feeling the first hippie I'd beat would be Gene Simmons, not because he's a smelly, patchulie reeking hippie, but for being a time wasting hippie, wasting the few precious moments I spent on reading this article that I can never, ever get back. fark you Gene Simmons, and have a nice day.

Headso: first toby keith and now gene simmons? star power baby!

Oh God, don't even talk about Toby Keith. If it weren't for his "patriotism", he wouldn't have a career.

Now, hurry up everyone. You know we're all here for the Sophie pictures :D

"I'm volunteering to have less freedom."

What a servile, un-American attitude. I didn't serve my country so that douchebags like this could throw away their freedoms because they're afraid of a few camel jockeys with bombs strapped to their chests.
 
2007-05-24 5:12:43 PM  
If I can beat Gene Simmons over the head with a baton for using the first amendment I would be willing to agree with his stance on these issues...

You must be thinking of Richard Simmons, which would be the total opposite of Gene Simmons.
 
2007-05-24 5:13:11 PM  
Wait a sec, this kind of implies that I should give a shiat what Gene Simmons thinks. Instead of spouting off about your political beliefs, why don't you go strap on your super high elevator booths, smear on some cheesy make up, and make some more craptastic music for fat 50 year old guys with mullets to blast while banging their fat white trash girlfriends.
