Kind of had to laugh today when a friend told me I was an equal opportunity offender when it comes to AIM, he said this laughing himself and meant it with the best of intentions.
That’s the way I took it also, and won’t deny I haven’t a problem with being “offensive” when blogging or talking about the AIM leadership or their mini mes.
Truth of the matter is if you aren’t an AIM drone there isn’t much a person can say they wouldn’t take as being offensive – on the other hand whether or not they are offended is of little consequence to me, I could give a rip, and figure if the truth offends that’s on them….it’s their history, not mine.
Was thinking too about the reversal of fortune they face, the decline in celebrity status they prostituted everyone and everything to achieve – the celebrity they cultivated that is undergoing a transition.
It’s no longer about elk medicine but Viagra , fiber, Depends, and high colonics. Like Rodney Dangerfield it ain’t easy being them what with the lack of respect and all.
They’re still celebrities but increasingly not for the reasons they desire. That entire warrior liberator act has become as flat and stale as last years ginger ale, no fizz or bite to it anymore.
They’re reduced now to giving themselves titles and names in an effort to maintain relevancy, kind of like children deciding who will be who when engaged in a game.
One thing for sure, the AIM leaderships got game, they’ve been running one for decades now, changing the rules as the game evolved and giving a few permanent time outs to select individuals.
All games have a beginning and ending – a football game, the Olympics, Bingo, even that game of Charades they’ve been playing.
