I Believe… [Beware The Golden Rule If You're An Asshole]

I Believe… [Beware The Golden Rule If You're An Asshole]

By Don Hall

…that, in a time in our history when assholes with guns routinely shoot up crowds, yelling “Heil Hitler” in any setting is a terrorist act and is subject to arrest. This is not a Free Speech issue because it is no different than shouting “Fire” to incite fear and panic.

…that, aside from Ian Wetknap using Kickstarter to raise money for an office away from his children a few years ago, the trio of assholes who gamed GoFundMe patrons with their bullshit story so they could buy cars and go on trips calls into question the entire concept of CrowdFunding.

…that Stan Lee was the Homer of our times in co-creating modern gods and mythologies that have a staying power to inform and inspire. His legacy will far outlast his 95 years and it all stemmed from his love for humanity, his want of success and his belief in making art.

…that in the spirit of the Golden Rule, if you have decided it’s appropriate to harass people on the street or in front of their homes to make a political point, you deserve exactly the same treatment when taking your kids out to Chuck E. Cheese.

…that co-opting Thanksgiving to be Friendsgiving is fine but Petsgiving is just stupid.
