Kudos to Madonna

I’m not a Madonna fan.  Aside from the fact that her music doesn’t work for me, I think her decision to use sex as her primary sales pitch contributed to a decline in our young people’s culture (or lack thereof) over the past couple of decades.

Nevertheless, I do believe in giving credit where credit is due.  Madonna has refused to bow to the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) crowd that has Israel in its cross hairs, she’s taken a very brave stand in the entertainment world.  Maybe she’s not just a material girl.  Maybe she’s a principled girl as well.

    Hollywood is run by robber barons and capitalist pigs. The actors and stars are just the latest cannon fodder to arrive. They use them up as fast as the US uses up Green backed companies. Madonna deserves some responsibility, but not the primary part. I’ve studied where the money goes and most of it does not in fact go into the pockets of these star like individuals, certainly not at the lower levels. It goes through middle men, pseudo pimps, and the like.

    And they complain about Wall Street… perhaps because those companies are the natural enemies of these other companies.

    Yep, we can give the Material Girl some credit here.

    “Boys may come, and boys may go,
     but I think Israel’s ok  (ok!)
     Don’t bother trying sweet talk
     if you wear the kaffiyeh-ay

     Cuz we are living in an Israeli world
     and I am an Israeli girl
     Don’t you know that we are living in an Israeli world
     And I – am an Israeli girl.”

     Musical interlude (with those irritating excited Madonna girl squeaks)

    (actually the line about the kaffiyeh goes further than her principled stand, but it rhymes. So what the hey.)
