Mark Wahlberg

Sorry for Dissing 9/11 Heroes

Mark Wahlberg
is apologizing for saying he could have rewritten 9/11 history, fighting off the terrorists on one of the flights ... and safely landing the plane -- telling TMZ, "To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible."

Mark originally made the comments in an interview with Men's Journal, claiming, "If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, 'OK, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry.'"

But Mark admits he crossed the line -- telling us, "To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with."

Mark adds, "I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention."

"If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did."

Now apologize for your grammar, you dimwitted ape.

There WOULD have been a lot of blood in that cabin. And it would have been most likely yours, Jerky Jerk.

I believe, if the people on the 9/11 planes had known how grave the situation actually was, they would have stopped the terrorists of 9/11/01. It was the element of surprise that caught everyone off guard. People are watching now and will never let a few terrorists' take over a plane again. Knowing what I know now, I'm with Mark. If something goes down @ 30,000 feet there's gonna be a rumble!

BUZZ BAIT!     

After 20 Years in the Military and assisting Law Enforcement, I've found in such a time like this people will wait until someone else to make the move. I truly believe Mark Wahlberg would of done just what he said he would do, I know I would have, just pull off one of your socks, drop your keys into it and kick some butt!

Subject: Conservatives/Liberals
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
-
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
-
1. Liberals; and
2. Conservatives
-
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
-
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.
-
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
-
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men.
-
Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
-
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
-
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.
-
-Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group
therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
-
Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, Polymer Science PhDs, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, Physicists, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
-
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
-
Here ends today's lesson in world history: It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it. A Conservative will simply laugh and be so
convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.

yadda yadda    

used to respect the guy, not any longer. Open mouth, insert foot and try to apologize after getting called out doesn't make a man truly sorry. Will I still watch one of his movies, probably but he just proved to be a d-bag like every other person in Hollywood.

Marky Mark, it is a crying shame that you and the Funky Bunch were not on that flight. All the lives you would have saved, even though you had never piloted a jetliner... How dare those families call you delusional or disrespectful! Good thing you have a decent PR agent.

This actor has lost all touch with reality. Until you have an actual gun pointed at you, or someone you love, you have no idea how you would really react. Up until 9-11 we were taught if this happened just relax, keep everyone quiet and it would be ok. The terrorist preyed on that. It will never be like that again, but hind-sight is 20/20.

Marky Mark is a s***bag. When he was 19 Marky beat an elderly vietnamese man nearly to death for no reason. Left the old man permanently blind. Marky never paid a dime in compensation. Marky should die in fire.
