The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
Each year, GQ magazine puts out a list of 'The LEAST Influential People in the World'. The list of people chosen this year is below. If you
want to see the write up as to why those people are chosen, then check the link. The list comes from GQ magazine so it's kinda 'guy orientated' in
my opinion. But it's still a good read and even though the write ups are a bit flip, they make good points.
1 - Bono and U2
2 - Barack Obama
3 - Donald Sterling
4 - Carter Bays and Craig Thomas
5 - Zach Braff
6 - Roger Goodell
7 - Stephen A. Smith
8 - Dwyane Wade
9 - CNN
10 - Eric Cantor
11- Derek Jeter
12 - Jay Nixon (Gov of Missouri)
13 - Rick Perry
14 - Benny Johnson
15 - The Brazilian soccer team
16 - Johnny Depp
17 - Cliven Bundy
18 - Suey Park
19 - Tom Wheeler
20 - Chris Christie
21 - Shia LaBeouf
22 - John McCain
23 - Woody Allen
24 - The Secret Service
25 - Robin Thicke
26 - Sarah Palin
27 - Dinesh D'Souza
28 - Desmond Hague
29 - Mary Barra
30 - Cops
The whole point of having police officers is to maintain law and order, which means they become useless when they decide to arm themselves like a
bunch of space soldiers in Halo, roam the streets, aim their rifles at everyone they see, and choke out asthmatic black men. This is bad police work!
This is not how you police. We'd be better off arming our cops with lollipops.
For the second year in a row, President Barack Obama has made it onto GQ magazine's list of the least influential people.
The irreverent, sometimes obscene, list maker, Australian-American Drew Magary, wrote that his 2014 roster — compiled in no particular order — was
comprised of "people who took up vast clouds of oxygen, gave us back nothing of use, and probably helped accelerate the death of our planet."
Addressing the president directly, Magary ranted: "Why are you still on Martha's Vineyard?! Missouri is BURNING. Putin is conquering Europe. The CDC
is playing nude Twister with Ebola patients." After an aside about his own sexual activities being monitored by the NSA, Magary continued, "Are
you even president anymore?"
