Jeez.... look at this line

"For two decades, Steven Seagal has exhibited a pattern of boorish behavior followed by an effective strategy of blaming the accuser".

Does that sound like certain AikiWeb denizens or what? Try this article:


Compare your last response with your first response. I.e., remember what my geometry teacher in junior high told me: "When you're well off, stay well off and keep your mouth shut".

The other saying to remember in public forums is from an ancient Emily Post comment:
"Never say anything in writing that you wouldn't want to have read out loud in court". This is one of the main things I think of when I post; it's one of the main things I think of when people write posts that are archived in a forum and can be copied to someone's files. Even my comments to Lardass (you know who you are).

On a real-world basis, I understand people well enough to know that when you have all the dough and status, most people change their ethics. I.e., if you can get away with things, you'll start doing things and getting away with them. Or, to quote the old saying, "absolute power corrupts absolutely".

In the case of Aikido (or many other martial arts) where you can get away with things as a "Sensei", many "Sensei's" will wind up abusing normal ethics. Seagal, in my opinion, did, or does, only what he's been trained (by experience) to get away with, to the maximum. I'm not particularly surprised. I applaud the woman (women) that simply told him to shove it. That's the way it should be. No "Namaste" about it.

This guy is just too funny to pass up:
