Memories of John Lennon

Dec 8, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CNN

Like millions around the world, I owe my early career choices to the Beatles. As a 6-year-old, I stayed up "late" one Sunday night to watch the Fab Four explode onto the world stage on "the Ed Sullivan Show." There were the Saturday afternoons I walked to the Plaza Theater in downtown Glasgow, Kentucky, to watch "Help!" and "A Hard Day's Night." I ...

Amen to that! That marxist prick/drug addict/atheist/pervert- he used to walk up behind old people and yell "Boo!". Looks like Karma got him.
Not only did the Beatles royally suck, but they were a tol of propaganda- starting out as nice, clean boys doing seemingly harmless songs....and slowly carrying their fans alng into the drug and hippy culture. While looking so innocent to many, they probably did more harm to our country and a generation of young people than any other 4 people in history.
I knew some people who were big fans...they maintain that the CIA had the bastard killed. Shortly before his death, I remember seeing bills. posted in the Times Square subway station. chronicling Lennon's persecution by the CIA. Much as I hated the guy, I do wish the truth would come out and those responsible would get what they deserve.
I only lived a few miles from the Dakota Hotel at vthe time Lennon was offed- I remember...for a place like NYC where nothing ever seemed to have much effect on people, I was amazed at how this event just seemed to be something which gripped the public- probably the only two events to surpass it were JFK's assassination and 9/11. All for a lowly piece of crap of a man.
The thing that has stuck with me over the years and provided countless hours of entertainment for me, was the fact that a while after his death, Yoko Oh-no fired the actor that had been hired. to play Lennon in a movie about his life, when she learned that the actor's real name was the. Hm same as the assassin's- Mark Chapman!
Rest In Piss, Lennon!
Freak! hope a bird takes a shit on your head.

My favorite Memory of John Lennon:
I like the time that he left his wife and young son, barely provided for them, had no contact with the son while he was growing up, cheated on his second wife, threw temper tantrums, made millions of dollars as some kind of spokesperson for peace and acceptance and became revered as a modern saint after his death. Boy the American public sure bought into it.
I hope and pray that you get blowed up in an explosion and die. I'm seething.

To be honest, the Beatles haven't aged well. Then again, I always found them to be overrated. People have selective memory or maybe just weren't there for it, but the Beatles were a girls' thing. They were the Backstreet Boys of their times. The songs were simplistic and schmaltzy. John Lennon's posing and preening was pretentious and presumptuous even for those times. He was the Bono of his day. No one really. bought the whole act outside of dumb. little girls. The day he died, I remember smiling. H and sighing a breath of relief that finally. that old decaying vestige of the 60s had crumbled. I wasn't the only one watching the Patriots play the Dolphins on Monday Night. Football to erupt into applause and laughter after Howard Cosell announced the news at the bar. that evening. Not that I wish death upon. anyone or don't feel for his kids, but 1980. signaled a new beginning. We were finally rid. of the tumult and -pardon the French but- bullshit. of the Hippie era. We elected Reagan, got rid of Lennon, and were ready for some. payback. RIP to a human being, but good. riddance to such bad rubbish...
Everyone ignore this fool. He's just a mere troll, don't pay him any attention. He dosn't deserve any.
