Unlike many other people on this user group, I find it a

waste of time to argue with someone without the necessary

critical skills. Therefore I will no go point by point

with this person and leave his clumsy and unsound

arguments fluttering in the air for all to see.

 

But ...

 

For all those thinking that getting Howard Stern to promote

"Bob" is a good idea, look no farther than this post for the

thought processes of a Howard Stern fan. Is this (anonymous)

person going to send money to P.O. Box 140306 Dallas Texas

75214? No. Why? Because, like a fundamentalist Christian,

this person will take any quotation or gimmick from the

Howard Stern show and use it out of context to justify his

unthought out beliefs. This person is so sure of his

unexamined ideas that he even thinks he can speak for "Bob!"

 

This is the person who Howard Stern speaks to. There sure

are a lot of them. Fortunately, there aren't any in the

Church of the SubGenius and I hope that we can keep it

that way.
