Kirk Douglas Editorial for His 90th Birthday, Saturday, December 9th

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- My name is Kirk Douglas. You may know me. If you don't ... Google me. I was a movie star and I'm Michael Douglas's dad, Catherine Zeta-Jones' father-in-law, and the grandparents [sic] of their two children. Today I celebrate my 90th birthday.

I have a message to convey to America's young people. A 90th birthday is special. In my case, this birthday is not only special but miraculous. I survived World War II, a helicopter crash, a stroke, and two new knees.

It's a tradition that when a "birthday boy" stands over his cake he makes a silent wish for his life and then blows out the candles. I have followed that tradition for 89 years but on my 90th birthday, I have decided to rebel. Instead of making a silent wish for myself, I want to make a LOUD wish for THE WORLD.

Let's face it: THE WORLD IS IN A MESS and you are inheriting it. Generation Y, you are on the cusp. You are the group facing many problems: abject poverty, global warming, genocide, AIDS, and suicide bombers to name a few. These problems exist, and the world is silent. We have done very little to solve these problems. Now, we leave it to you. You have to fix it because the situation is intolerable.

You need to rebel, to speak up, write, vote, and care about people and the world you live in. We live in the best country in the world. I know. My parents were Russian immigrants. America is a country where EVERYONE, regardless of race, creed, or age has a chance. I had that chance. You are the generation that is most impacted and the generation that can make a difference.

I love this country because I came from a life of poverty. I was able to work my way through college and go into acting, the field that I love. There is no guarantee in this country that you will be successful. But you always have a chance. Nothing should interfere with it. You have to make sure that nothing stands in the way.

When I blow out my candles -- 90! ... it will take a long time ... but I'll be thinking of you.

Dear AC 74188,

Thank you for speaking out against an issue that you seem to truly believe in. But I would like you to know that I have been in the business of fighting and exposing false allegations for literally decades. And I would like to tell you something that I found to be absolutely true. And that is, that false accusers ALWAYS choose something that they, themselves, are guilty of when making a false allegation against someone else. Basically, the theory is that there is no better false accusation to make against someone else than a situation that the accuser knows best.

I don't know if you have the intellectual capability of following what I've just written, so I will give you a clue..

You chose to falsely accuse Kirk Douglas of being a loser, and by what seems to be more of a law than a rule of thumb, it is you who has just admittted to being what you truly are.

Sorry Charlie, get a life.

Of course, I always knew I was a Jew. I even auditioned to join a Yiddish Theater in New York. They looked at my blonde hair and blue eyes and said: "If we have a part for a Nazi, we'll call you."

Also,
I really do not want to sully on this old mans birthday speech but if he really cared, he would, (before his demise from this planet) come out with the hard truths that could help fence sitters to join us and human kind make this a better world rather than parrot out the old party line....that is, unless he is truely ignorant of the facts, such as who did 911, and ALL the rest of the israeli neocon crimes.
To be fair, included into the mix, the dumb-ass wan'a be hagee/roberston sucker types of judeo-christians (oxymoron) who are wanting to be raptured up into space! (but in reality will only become fertilizer) poop
