(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Gene Simmons: Obama Has No Clue

And to think that I despised Kiss all these decades.

I can remember, many years ago, traveling to Tower Records on Watt Avenue in Sacramento and purchasing a Kiss album. It was the only record or piece of entertainment that, in my entire life, I ever returned for a refund/exchange.

[Wait. I take it back. Robert Wyatt's album, "Shleep," which is an absolutely unmitigated piece of week-old fecal material, is light-years worse. Don Van Vliet of Captain Beefheart had more inherent musical talent in the upper-left quadrant of his spleen. Wait. I take it back again. I literally walked out of the Bill Murray movie "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" because it was so brain-glazingly stupid. That counts as a piece of entertainment returned, doesn't it?]

That said, my esteem of Gene Simmons (he of the foot-long tongue) has leaped immeasurably when, as documented in, he said that our Mr Obama has "no fucking clue what the world is like."

And to think that Mr Simmons "gets it," though he is no beribboned, medal-winning journalist!

In an interview with CNBC's Jane Wells:

JANE WELLS, CNBC: What do you think of President Obama’s suggestion that the borders be redrawn pre-67?

GENE SIMMONS, KISS: President Obama, I voted for an idea. What I didn’t realize what I was getting was an idealist. If you’ve never been to the moon, you can’t issue policy about the moon. You have no f—king idea what it’s like on the moon. For a president to be sitting in Washington, D.C., and saying, “Go back to your 67 borders in Israel,” how about you live there and try to defend an indefensible border nine miles wide? On one side you’ve got hundreds of millions of people who hate your guts, on the other side you’ve got the Mediterranean. Unless you control, in Israel, unless you control those Golan Heights, it’s an indefensible position.

It’s a nice idea, when you grow up you find out that life isn’t the way you imagined it, and President Obama means well. I think he’s actually a good guy. He has no f—king idea what the world is like because he doesn’t have to live there.

To that I would reply: Mr Simmons (who, oddly enough, was born Chaim Witz in 1949, Israel) merely states facts in evidence. Much more, as I alluded above, than the bulk percentile of persons deeming themselves "journalistas."

The video of this interview is below:

Unlike Mr Obama, Simmons realizes there is Actual Evil in the world, and it couldn't care less how it gets it, and how it keeps it. To wit:

Vladimir Putin has, out of the blue, now decided that he'll simply re-take the Russian Presidency. Because, after all, he knows he can. As I learned many years ago, whilst a rookie starting my career in our fetid and festering jails, the prevailing philosophy of criminals was and is: "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine unless you have the balls and strength to stop me."

And Medvedev simply lacks the power.

Who could have, in reflection, imagined such insight from an aging bass player in a talentless rock band?

The American electorate should really examine just why they elected, as president, this clown (Obama) who is obviously considerably less intelligent than an aging eccentric, cartoonish gimmick band bass player from the goofy '70s.

I also enjoyed Mr Simmons' comments in re the United Nations as well as -- further -- the OBVIOUS:

Our enemies keep extending their hands, expecting them to be filled with money. . .

And, like idiots, we KEEP DOING IT.

Well BZ I'd be remiss if I didn't expand on this a bit:

There's a total of 2 "Rock" stars that garner respect and admiration for their activism. Ted Nugent and Gene Simmons. Gene has been touring for the troops for a very long time. He's done some amazing work for our boys in Uniform. He's been steady in his support for AMERICA. Not exactly a staunch conservative, but close enough for me.

As far as his "Talent" My wife has every KISS album ever made. Myself, never got into it. I was repulsed by men in makeup. There were a few songs worthy of listen but that's it.

I was never a huge "KISS" fan, but Gene Simmons just skyrocketed in my opinion of him...

Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S...

I saw the video over the weekend. Actually, I watched it three times!

Who'd have thunk that Simmons could be so incisive in his criticism of Obama and the United Nations.

Yes, I'm smiling.

I have long been a Gene Simmons fan.

As far as the band goes, there are three KISS songs I like, and I've never been in the KISS Army, owned any of their albums, or attended any of their concerts.

Gene Simmons, the individual, is as patriotic an American as you will find any where, and he is one of the most savvy businessmen on the planet.

Gene Simmons wept when he visited wounded veterans. He wept when he visited the Anne Frank house. He give tons of money and time to our troops, veterans, and their children.

And he has the guts to tell America that it's president hasn't got a clue.

Maybe I should go buy a KISS album or two...

Robert: I'd have to agree with you about that now; certainly with regard to Nugent. Mr Simmons has now come to the top of the rockpile with his realistic views of politics.

BAA: I waaaaay concur.

AOW: and don't you wonder who's calling him, cussing him out for his views? Bet he doesn't much care.

Timothy: and that's an excellent point; Simmons IS an excellent businessman who has taken his success and further capitalized upon it. I completely agree.
