    Angry The Hypocrisy of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    What a two-faced, lying, hypocritical, SOB this guy is!!

    To lie to the American people to get elected, then to have the gall to show up at Mr. Heston's funeral.

    I can only imagine Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan looking down from Heavan, and Reagan shaking his head and saying ....
    " Well.... there he goes again!"


    Luminaries Attend Heston's Funeral
    By BOB THOMAS


    LOS ANGELES - Charlton Heston, one of the last lions of Old Hollywood, was remembered at his funeral Saturday as devoutly religious and patriotic - a man who was an imposing figure both in his politics and on the big screen.

    In recent years, Heston became better known for his conservative politics and position on gun rights as head of the National Rifle Association. Heston also campaigned for Republican presidential and congressional candidates and against affirmative action.

    About 300 people attended the funeral, including family members, politicians and actors.
    A frail Nancy Reagan entered the church on the arm of Tom Selleck.

    Following the nearly two-hour ceremony, Reagan left with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger on Gun Control

    But as Schwarzenegger began to think of himself as a potential political candidate, he became sensitive on the gun issue, telling one interviewer, "I'm for gun control. I'm a peace-loving guy."

    Schwarzenegger supports the Brady Bill, which tightened gun control measures. "I would also like to close the loophole of the gun shows," Schwarzenegger said, referring to the fact that people can buy weapons at such exhibitions without a background check.

    I support the Brady bill, I support the current assault weapons ban and I believe that guns must have safety devices or be stored as to prevent accidental discharge.

    Q: Where do you stand on gun control?

    A: I am a strong supporter of the second amendment. The U.S. constitution allows for law-abiding citizens to own a firearm.

    I have no way of knowing the man's heart, but I don't view Arnold's funeral attendance as political.

    Personally, I feel some events transend politics.

    I doubt that Schwarzenegger's attendance was motivated by politics. My guess it was out of respect to a fellow actor. While their political views and views on gun rights may have differed, I think there is still room for mutual respect.

    Schwarzenegger may or may not have agreed with Charlton Heston on gun rights, but that's beside the point. His position as Governor demands that he attend Mr. Heston's funeral. It's part of the job. It's the expected thing to do.

    Theoretically, politics has nothing to do with his attendance. Realistically, politics has everything to do with his attendance. Arnold is a high profile public figure, he can never afford to pass up an opportunity to maintain a high profile image (or a photo opp.).

    It's just the nature of the political animal.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
