Does the continuing media avalanche of BILL GATES IS GOD propaganda make you want to grab a barf bag? If so, you aren't alone.
I visit Google News and type in Bill Gates almost every day, and it's like a black hole that devours truth and objectivity. The latest angle exploits Steve Jobs, who died of cancer recently.
Just for the record, I think Steve Jobs is an asshole, for a number of reasons I won't elaborate on here. Let's just say he was a typical corporate power junkie who didn't care about anyone or anything but Steve Jobs.
However, Jobs did give us some awesome computers (hardware AND software) and other gadgets, while no one worked harder to retard the IT industry than Bill Gates. And when you compare Jobs to Gates - whose crimes could fill an encylopedia - he looks like a saint. The famous Get a Mac commercials did a good job of exploiting Bill Gates' world famous nerdiness; if only they had hinted at his extraordinary greed, arrogance and sheer evil.
In today's headlines, BusinessWeek says Idolize Bill Gates, Not Steve Jobs. Byline: "Both leaders are highly admirable, but Gates used his talents in ways that stretch further beyond the business world, says Harvard scholar Maxwell Wessel."
Hmmm...Harvard; isn't that the school that has given us so many world class banksters?
In Bill Gates, not Steve Jobs, is the real hero, Bill Snyder says, "Steve Jobs was a great CEO, but Bill Gates has moved beyond technology and is trying to save the world. Why isn't he getting more recognition?"
No, SUPERMAN is trying to save the world, and he only lives in cartoons. If you really believe the BS about St. Gates, visit Seattle and check out the pig slop children are fed in the public schools in Bill Gates' home town.
Forbes weighs in with an article titled How Can Anyone Still Hate Bill Gates? A couple key statements: "People love to hate Bill Gates and I don’t think most of it is fair, especially in light of more recent events." "All that money you think Gates stole from you? He’s giving it back, with interest, to the world’s poorest."
This is powerful evidence that all that media propaganda isn't working. In spite of the 24/7 BILL-GATES-IS-GOD blitz, people love to hate Bill Gates. Moreover, it appears that I'm not the only person who "thinks" Bill Gates stole money from me.
But let's explore this in a little more detail. Suppose I hit someone over the head, snatch $1,000 out of their wallet, then invest $100 in some lucrative industry and pay some media whore $50 to promote it as "philanthropy." Is there anything remotely cool about that?
Think about it: Forbes is publicly admitting that 1) many people hate Bill Gates, and 2) many people feel that Bill Gates ripped them off, because he did rip them off. As if to compensate for his crimes, Gates dives head first into philanthropy. But how can we respect this asshole when he's never even offered an apology to his victims?
If Steve Jobs wakes up in Hell, it won't bother me one bit, though I'll continue using a Mac. But I'd like to send Bill Gates to Hell myself, and I'll be happy to write the son of a bitch's obituary, too - on my iPad.
