What I have Learned from Celebrities and the Famous

I have learned toleration from the intolerant Bill Mahar.

I have learned silence from the talkative Donald Trump.

I have learned thrift from the greedy Bernie Madoff.

I have learned the value of an education from the uneducated Paris Hilton.

I have learned about self-interest from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

I have learned conscience from the conscienceless Al Sharpton.

I have learned about love from multiple-wife-murderer Drew Peterson.

I have learned about character from General David Petreaus’s lack of it.

I have learned what freedom really means from the constraints in Obamacare.

I have learned courage from the cowardice of Jesse Jackson Jr. for hiding out in a mental institution instead of facing criminal charges.

I have learned honesty from the truth-less testimony of Lance Armstrong.

I have learned about humility from the ambitious Hillary Clinton.

I have learned about family from OctoMom’s ignorance of parental responsibility.

I have learned about justice from the verdict in the O.J. Simpson trial.

I have learned the value of thoughtfulness from the thoughtless remarks of VP Joe Biden.

I have learned about objective journalism from watching the subjective Rachel Meadow.

I have learned about religious tolerance from the intolerant Muslims.

I have learned about God from the ACLU’s efforts to silence Him.

I have learned sincerity from the hypocritical Eric Holder’s handling of the killing of an American border patrol agent.

I have learned to laugh, and not cry, at politicians like NYC mayor Bloomberg who has spent millions legislating the size of a soda one is allowed to buy .

I have learned compassion form the arrogance of Al Gore.

I learned about fairness from the lack of it I saw while watching the mainstream media coverage of the last election.


I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and compassion from the arrogant; yet strange, though I have learned all these things, I am ungrateful to these teachers.

    Good comes from bad. Ultimate example of reversal in ideas, and its power. I did learn like this myself, just had not noticed it. A very good way to re-frame the value and use of many celebs, lucky people, and those who don’t deserve it, etc. They are more useful to society than we thought, this is good.

    Of course you will agree, open to interpretation,but if we learn good lessons, then it does not matter. I personally think the soda can size limit was good, as it drew attention to just how harmful these things are. If they can spend billions on advertising and sponsorship, then a little (relative) to counter this is a good thing. Who knows what lives it may save in diabetes and caner, given the now proven srong links.
