Amy Schumer Doesn’t Steal Jokes from Other Comics, Because She Doesn’t Need To.

Amy Schumer arrives at the The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Jan. 17, 2016.

1.20.2016

Amy’s had a bit of a rough PR week just the past few days. She had to set a young Jackson Murphy straight when he tried to tweet a really NOT funny bit [ now deleted by Murphy after his live-tweeted come-uppance tweeted by Schumer ] about how he had slept with the comic, when he hadn’t. He also inferred that many other men had recently slept with Amy, in a sleazy, one-night-stand kind of way – and that’s when she had enough of it, and took to Twitter to straighten him out. Odds are this guy will never get to even stand in the near vicinity of any celebrity ever again, based on how he behaved after a brief social encounter with Amy. Don’t get out much do ya, Jackson? Duh.

“In case you missed it, 17-year-old Jackson Murphy, who runs the website Lights-Camera-Jackson, tweeted a photo of himself with Amy Schumer and joked: “Spent the night with @amyschumer. Certainly not the first guy to write that.” She responded: ‘I get it. Cause I’m a whore? Glad I took a photo with you. Hi to your dad.’ He then deleted the tweet and apologized, saying it was a failed effort to be funny. She forgave him.

The online reaction was mixed. Some praised her for calling out sexism. Others slammed her as a hypocrite. But we should all understand why Schumer responded as she did, and why so many people supported her.

As a star who speaks openly about her sex life, Schumer is bombarded daily by society’s double standard. A man who is openly sexual and has lots of sex with different partners is considered a playboy, an idol, a guy just doing what many guys do or want to do. A woman who does the same is criticized as troubled, lacking self-worth, or “slutty.” (When’s the last time anyone called a guy “slutty?”)”

Next Amy had to clear the air and answer serious allegations from three other female comedians that she sometimes steals jokes from other comics. Schumer is still responding, days later. She has even stated that she would take a lie detector test to prove she has NEVER stolen jokes from other comics.

My thoughts?  This woman’s everyday normal spoken out loud ‘stream of consciousness’ about her own life, spontaneously narrated on stage,  is so gut bustingly naturally funny that no one, anywhere, at any time, either now, or possibly ever in the future – will ever be able to compete with her as a comedian. To say that Amy is a natural at comedy would be the understatement of the year. I see no situation – ever – where she would need to stoop so low that she would steal a joke from another comic. What I do see – is that she has many very jealous enemies in the comedy community, who love to have the success that she has.

Not to MENTION that in the past two years she has written a hit TV show, received a Peabody Award for it, and written and starred in a hit movie [ See the trailer for Trainwreck movie trailer 2015 Amy Schumer if you have been living under a rock since last year ].

There is no more potent fuel for all-out jealousy than PURE TALENT. Keep on doing what you do Amy Schumer. If they are hating on you, it’s because they can’t do what you do – and they will never be able to. All the haters can do is sit on Twitter and throw eggs, poor sad little souls. Rock on, woman.

Shall I go on? WHO CARES what the teeny little haters and pop culture liars on Twitter have to say about Amy Schumer? OMG.

US Navy Men and Other Military Sound Off About Being Deployed to Syria: “Hell NO! I Did Not Sign Up to Fight For Al-Qaeda”

Re-blogged from The Blaze on 09.03.2013

‘Treason’ Or ‘Free Speech?’ – Are These Anti-Syria Strike Pictures From U.S. Military Members Okay? (Blaze Poll)

Sep. 2, 2013 11:46am

Since the U.S. has started serious discussions about taking military action against Syria, many have publicly spoken out against a possible military strike. And now it appears that some of our uniformed service personnel have come forward to express their disagreement with an attack, any attack on Syria.

More than 2,000 people have “liked” this image that was posted on Sunday.

Photo posted by member of the US Army

There were also photos posted from people wearing the uniforms of the Marines, Navy and Air Force. These have also received Facebook “likes” in the thousands.

Is this kind of behavior allowed? Well, there are rules concerning what uniformed military personnel can and cannot do, especially when it comes to making a political statement. In reviewing the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), Article 88 could come into play here. That section states:

Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

We see that commissioned officers could be called to question if they posted a photo like those seen above. What about enlisted or non-commissioned personnel? The UCMJ has rules for these folks as well. According to Article 92, failure to obey an order could result in being court-martialed.

Any person subject to this chapter who–

(1) violates or fails to obey any lawful general order or regulation;

(2) having knowledge of any other lawful order issued by any member of the armed forces, which it is his duty to obey, fails to obey the order; or

(3) is derelict in the performance of his duties;

shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

Where do you stand on this issue? Should members of the military be allowed to publicly post their disagreement with a possible strike on Syria while they are in uniform? Take part in our Blaze Poll and feel free to comment below.

Press Conference: Huntsville Alabama – Von Braun III Missile Defense Agency Building Evacuated

Noon April 30th 2013 Update

Click here to watch the press conference that was just recorded about the incident at Redstone Arsenal.

Updated story on WAFF news site is here.

WAFF-TV in Alabama is covering the story, and it appears as the lead story on their website.

Updated: Suspicious substance prompts evacuation at Redstone Arsenal building

Four days ago a similar incident took place in the same region when a UPS building was evacuated after a suspicious package was found.

Here’s some background information on the base where the latest incident took place earlier this morning – see below:

http://www.militaryinstallations.dod.mil/MOS/f?p=MI:CONTENT:0::::P4_INST_ID,P4_CONTENT_TITLE,P4_CONTENT_EKMT_ID,P4_CONTENT_DIRECTORY,P4_TAB:160,Installation%20Overview,30.90.30.30.30.0.0.0.0,,

Earlier on 04.30.2013 I reported:

Breaking report re-posted verbatim below as the story is breaking and changes quickly. The first version of this story was just removed and this new version was posted. The first version mentioned a white powdery substance which was found in the building. The second version of the story omitted any mention of the substance. I am still looking for more information at this time.

Our US Missile Defense Agency in Huntsville Alabama is the operating “nerve center” for US national security decisions which involve any sort of missile defense. It was from this locale that the decision to deploy a missile defense system on Guam was rendered in early April in response to North Korean provocations.  The evacuation of the Redstone building can only cause me to speculate [ and I know with so little information to work from I could be wrong ] whether or not a North Korean affiliated person or persons has made an attempt to harm the people working in that building as retaliation for our placing a missile defense system on Guam to deter a North Korean first strike attack.

Cited from an article on April 3rd:

“The Pentagon said today that it will deploy a THAAD missile system to Guam as a “precautionary move to strengthen the regional defense posture against the North Korean regional ballistic missile threat.”

THAAD, which stands for Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System, is a product of Lockheed Martin, which has a sprawling Huntsville campus off Bradford Drive among its worldwide locations. As recently as last year, Lockheed Martin had about 190 employees in Huntsville working on the THAAD program.”

Which begs the next question:  Just how many North Korean spies are lurking in the shadows of the United States and what are their operating directives?

I am just a blogger who reads alot of news reports and asks alot of questions. That’s all.

Building evacuated on Redstone Arsenal

Cited:  “HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) – According to officials, a building on Redstone Arsenal was evacuated Tuesday morning.  As of 11:30, employees were still out of Von Braun III.  Officials are investigating, but wouldn’t say why the building was evacuated.  A worker in the building said alarms sounded and everyone was told to leave the building. The announcement also stated it was not a drill. The worker said many people went home.”

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – One of the largest office buildings on Redstone Arsenal has been evacuated.

According to an email from Col. Jeffrey Ogden, interim chief of staff of the Army Space and Missile Defense Command, the Von Braun III building is “closed and off limits until further notice.” Ogden’s e-mail, sent at 11:52 a.m., also says people should stay back at least 50 feet from any entrance to the building.

An Army spokeswoman said she is gathering more information on the evacuation and will be sending out a news release shortly.

Von Braun III is the largest building in the arsenal’s Von Braun Complex of offices. The six-story, 840,000-square-foot structure houses the Missile Defense Agency and its contractors.

Von Braun III is designed to be “the hub of missile defense for our nation,” Lt. Gen. Patrick O’Reilly, then-MDA director, said during ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the building in October 2011. “The largest concentration of missile defense engineers anywhere in the world is in this building.”
