    Stevie Wonder threatens Florida

    From the article:

    "In the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal, the singer said he would not be performing in the Sunshine State until its Stand Your Ground law is "abolished." He also said he would not be performing in any other state that recognizes the law, which some say contributed to Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012."

    Oh no! I was totaly going to go on tour and see him in every state!!! This sucks.

    Yeah, no. Just kidding. Im sick of celebrities throwing their weight around like they matter. Then again, I guess they do matter (look at Kim Kardashian and Snooki) if nobodys can rise to fame for doing absoloutley nothing.

    Im so proud of the fact that I dont have cable or sattelite, my DVD collection is one shelf on my book shelf, I dont go to the movies and am hardly bothered to care what is in the "news." My only wish is that other people would stop following the MSM and wake up.

    It's too bad he can't see how foolish his stance is. So, Illinois has a "stand your ground" law?

    I see what you did there...

    The fact is he is blind to the reality of the situation.

    Actors, musicians and such have opinions that are just as irrelevant as the opinions of me or anybody else. Does he think anybody REALLY cares what he thinks?
