    Left Wingers to Dominate TV Tonight

    [Rant On] My wife asked me (even though she knew the answer already) if I was going to watch the left wingers in Hollywood congratulate themselves tonight. I told her that I might try something a little more pleasurable--like jabbing a screwdriver into my eyes and ears. All kidding aside, I wonder if anyone else finds all these Hollywood award events just an excuse to have the likes of Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen, Tim Robbins, and others criticize and demean conservatism in America. They spend so much of their lives involved in fantasy movie-making that they can no longer recognize reality. [/Rant Off]

    Hollywood is not reality anyways and never was - and I am not sure if some of the ''members'' even really belong on this planet at all!

    Most can put their ''opinions'' in a dark place for what they are usually worth! Trouble is - and it was ever thus - people with money, including grossly overpaid movie folks, always seem to guarantee limelight and of course, media attention.

    Many of them are good actors. They are good at pretending. Why people would flock to them and listen to their political and social leanings is beyond me.

    Let them congratulate themselves. It allows them to stay in their pretend world a little longer.

    I don't listen to him often (should that be as much as I should? LOL.), but Rush Limbaugh was talking about that very thing. He pointed out how many Grammies the Dixie Chicks got and said expect more of the same at the Oscars.

    Thumbs down Actors and singers

    Now days there are very few actors who have any thing worthwhile to say. This includes their views on politics. They think because they are an actor or a singer that they are the ultimate authority. This brings to mind Jane Fonda and the Dixie Chicks. Most actors can't even control their own lifes or relationships and now they are experts on how to run the goverment. If anything they are a bad influence on our our kids. All the Oscars are a bunch of actors having a popularity contest wearing an outfit that most street walkers would think was to skimpy.

    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    There's a "Dogfight" marathon on the History Channel; "Rome" on HBO; and "Battlestar Galactica" on Sci-Fi Channel...no need to watch self-important "stars" fawn over each other.

    I just asked my wife if she was going to watch the oscars. She didn't even know they were on. Her answer was, of course a @#$#$#no. Fiirst of all we cannot stand the host - helen degenerate, and the other reason was the last movie we went to was a sneak preview of The Hunt for Red October. See how often we get out ??

    Watching rich people pat themselves on the back is boring. They can't even make good movie's anymore. If they do a charity event they usually end up with a $50,000.00 payment such as watches or cars.
