What's so entertaining about a man with progressively more severe psychiatric problems? Since when is sickness entertaining?

I'm not being compassionate I guess, but when a guy is making $2,000,000 an episode which goes up his nose in the form of coke then goes nuts, costs over 100 people their jobs, and continues to act like Zeus.... well yeah I don't have pity for this bum.

If anyone on this website was given 3 mil just once they would be able to live off it the rest of their lives through smart investments and avoiding binge drug parties with lots of hookers and booze.

I would spend 2 million on gambling, booze and women and then just waste the rest.

Since when is it American to bestow compassion according to the income of the recipient? That's precisely what all socialists since Marx have always taught: people are divided into classes and, whereas some deserve help and compassion, others deserve hatred. That is what Muslims believe as well: it is OK to deceive a Christian or a Jew but not OK to deceive another Muslim.

In Judeo-Christian morality, we don't think that judgment of another in matters unrelated to economics depend on his income. How is being hit by a car hurt any less if you have millions in the bank?

As Bennett said in mid-1990s, "While the majority of people in this country identify themselves as Christians, they no longer guide themselves by Christian principles in their daily lives." You prove him right. And prove also how class deeply class envy, which Marx and Lenin expended so much energy to ignite, permeated the society: what even you, a conservative, thinks of others depends on how much money they make.

When conservatives don't even notice how far away they have moved from traditional American principles, is there any wonder that we have a commie in the White House?

But in that case, what would be the point of it all?

Sorry if I did not make it clear in the previous post: I never suggested that one should have compassion to this guy. What I did object to is your finding him “entertaining.” That is much farther than lack of compassion.
