Their final product is propaganda made by the creators.

McCarthy was right about them.

I don’t listen to modern music. I do read, classic books, history, when I can afford it. I also own some movies, mostly westerns, values movies.

It's been the SERVER, dude..... and, it's been BAD, for awhile.

When did I say it's been all hunky dory? What I said, is that I haven't seen FR fail to handle a live thread in the last few years, except for maybe one time when it choked.

Heck, I've seen all the outages and break downs too. I've been on here every day, since about 2005. I just haven't seen what you claim. One would have to be an occasional visitor to not have noticed that the site's been needing a hardware upgrade for a long time now.

Thankfully, JohnRob has finally done that, and will soon be doing more.

Dustin Hoffmann to Piers Morgan: ‘God Bless You For What You’re Saying About Gun Control’
Feb. 24, 2013 9:30pm Mytheos Holt

Hollywood is known to be a hotbed of liberal sentiment, and the Oscars are often nakedly political events, in terms of the selection of nominees and winners. Still, naked politics during red carpet interviews, which are more often occasions for bland discussions of clothing choices, is something of a rarity.

But that didn’t stop Dustin Hoffmann from explicitly endorsing a political position in his red carpet interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan. Mediaite caught the video:

“I was watching you on television, and I think you said something about turning fifty,” Hoffmann said to Morgan.

“I’m not turning 50. I’m 47! I’m turning 48,” Morgan protested.

“I know. Nevertheless, that means I could be your father,” Hoffmann joked. “So treat me with a modicum of respect.”

“Have you had a little shot of tequila before you came out?” Morgan asked, laughing.

“No, no, I thought I’d have a little bit of vodka this time,” Hoffmann responded.

A little pleasant banter about the feeling of being nominated for an Oscar seven times followed, after which Morgan asked the question that touched off Hoffmann’s outburst.

“Do you still get starstruck?” Morgan asked.

“I feel extraordinary that I’m talking to you!” Hoffmann replied. “And God bless you for what you’re saying about gun control!”

“Well, thank you. I’ll have to have you onto my show
Here ya go, on the Red Capet no less.

sometime,” Morgan chuckled.

“Yes!” Hoffmann said.

Morgan has been one of the fiercest and most unrelenting critics of gun rights since the shooting at Newtown, clashing with everyone from Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro to radio host Alex Jones on the subject. One feels rather safe in assuming that Hoffmann would be a fairly light easy experience, given those previous experiences.

“Heh. I just got through watching a western a few hours ago.... “The Border Sheriff” (1926), starring Jack Hoxie. Is that one old enough for you?

Certainly preferable to watching a bunch of backslapping, Obama-worshipping, degenerate”

Ladies and gentleman, FR’s answer to the 13 yos on Youtube who post comments on Led Zeppelin songs complaining that they were born in the wrong generation.

“Has Seth MacFarlane made a Trig Palin joke yet? Again, burn in hell, Hollywood.”

Yeh he’s basically an idiot. When I first heard he was going to host the Oscars, I was like *yawn*

YEAH...some people dropping into this thread seem oblivious to its purpose...sheesh. Like peeing in the pool at a party. It’s ridiculous. I may not like much of Hollywood, but we are surrounded by it, and I need to be entertained a LITTLE bit, so I come here to find out what mostly conservative people think of the films out there. You can pretend they don’t exist, but that’s like pretending Democrats don’t exist.

Why watch to 'Oscars'?!

I haven't tuned that crap in during any of the past 25-30 years (maybe more.)

Maybe once or twice every 10 years they accidentally make one movie that is a tad better than pure trash. Once every 20 years they make something worth buying - but not good enough to get me excited about going to a theater to see it.

You have to separate the art and the artist. None of the films this year are propaganda. McCarthy said nothing about Hollywood at all. Why spread that myth?

Oh... Now, I see why we have so many negative ninnies.. NOTHING ELSE is going on at FR tonight...

Maybe you and your Oscar friends, note it is not spelled with a "FR", are completely enchanted with a product of progressive liberals that push their anti-American, anti-Christain, pro-homosexual, violent, drug culture down out throats everyday.

Get a f'n life. I fear your attachment to Hollywood borders on coveting and idolatry.

Hint: Both of those are sins.

Taratino wins for Original Screenplay...

I saw both Argo and Les Miserables. I liked both those movies, but I've never understood Tarantino movies so I had no interest in seeing his Mandingo Jango movie this year. I do still want to see Lincoln, though.

Really? This site acts up more than any other site I visit.

Did you think I said it doesn't? I know it does.

What I said, is, that FR has handled most live threads in the last few years without choking up. I'm sure I haven't been on every live thread in that time, but I've been on most of the biggies, and it held up without breaking.

Now, is the site long overdue for a serious upgrade? You betcha it is, and I'm glad that JohnRob is finally getting that done.

All I've claimed is: I've been unable to participate in a LIVE THREAD here in a LONG time... it's just been TOO SLOW, I give up...

Election night was a good example.. they HAD one... I didn't play in it very long.

I HOPE that'sa thing of the past...

“I used to LOVE watching the Oscars: the gowns, the “inside” jokes from Bob Hope, the glamour...
Then the 60s and 70s happened and it all went to hell.”

That is real nice, old man. I suppose you should realize that it was always like this and that they just hid it better in the past. And Bob Hope? Come on, he was as dirty as it gets, it’s just that his jokes went over most people’s heads.

People who think there was no smut or commie liberals in Hollywood 50-60 years ago are not exactly bright.

John Wayne fought the commies in Hollywood. In 1944 he helped found the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, a right-wing political organization, later becoming its President.

McCarthy took down Commies in DC who were friends and contacts of Hollywood. They then went after McCarthy. Btw, he was right on every count.

You underestimate the cumulative effect of day-after-day, seeing insanely obnoxious, condescending Hollywood elitists on talk-shows all across the dial, preaching homo marriage, worshipping Obama, pushing global-warming crap, making vile Bush/Palin jokes, and spitting on the faces of anyone out in mid-america who holds traditional values.

I used to just ignore them. But day-after-day, year-after-year of hearing these anti-American leftist scumbags, who themselves have hugely contributed to dragging the country and its culture into such a noxious sewer, I’ve had it with these damned cretins. White-hot hatred.
