Incidentally, I happen to think that Muhammad Ali's profession, fighting for money, is "dumb", as you put it. Especially considering all the pain and mental and physical problems he's had as a direct result of it. I don't condone beating people to a bloody pulp any more than you condone mass execution. Or Britney's recent performances.
Its not my judgement, Its fact. When are they fighting each other, killing each other. Standing on their own two feet. Being totally self reliant. Self accountable. They are too cowardly. Its not like Harrison in the movies. And the people do go off and kill for them. Its happening right now, no matter how I judge it.
I think its honest, boxing. At least the two involved choose it and only harm each other. Each has a choice and knows the consequences. Rather than cunningly and sneakily trying to attack each other, and get one over each other, using any sneaky means possible, like most afraid people do. Ali payed his price and wore it himself. He didn't force boxing on anyone. In fact he is famous for encouraging and fostering equalness and peace, because he did it.
Britneys a good target for the brave isn't she.
'Lets pummel the **** out of that mixed up young woman, us big brave reporters and countries. Come on join in, give her one in the guts. Quick, get a shot of her dying. What? Help her? But then we won't get to see and sell her tits and arse anymore.'
No recruits here to beat up Britney, not here. Helping her is a bit harder, eh? Does'nt sell.
