LOL! Getting medieval on Osama "... with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch" sounds like a great idea.

He probably bought it and reduced the staffing and service levels to a point where he probably can only host smaller groups.

From what I've been reading, he bought it in '96 and spent quite a bit to make it grow.

I didn't say he stopped giving discounts, but he also raised the price of tickets so he could offer that discount. I still refuse to believe that he is a great Hero just because he offers some money to bounty hunters. And I assure you, the military, at least in that area, would love to see him on the front lines in Iraq.

...when it came time for the Annual Military Day he said it was canceled til he decided otherwise.

And, I guess he's supposed to keep a staff to run the mountain even though it's only open to the Military one day a year? What does the staff do the rest of the time?

The property would have went from commercial use, with a staff and everything, to private use. How the hell is he as a private citizen supposed to staff his resort so that he can keep "Annual Military Day" open?

Give me a break! You're way off base on this one. Just because BW doesn't host a yearly party on his mountain for the military doesn't make BW a AH, or someone who doesn't support our military.

I'm not hosting any military parties at my place, either. Am I an AH?

No, you said he "shut it down".

...he also raised the price of tickets so he could offer that discount.

...but I thought you said (post #9): When Bruce Willis bought the resort he cancelled the "Annual Military Day" and basically shut it down to anyone but his closest friends.

Now, which is it? Did he shut it down? Or, is it still open and he's giving military discounts? Which of these makes him the AH?

Loved the 'Wanna breath mint?' line! Die Hard is one of my all-time favorites, and really ushered in the era of the big budget action film. Hans Gruber is one of my favorite villans ever!

Why she left him...a real man....for that little 'not yet dry behind the ears' boy, I'll never know.

..Guess she's as immature as Ashton.

The daughters seem OK so far, but if they idolize their mom...(that's what I heard)...I hope they grow out of it.....and put her silliness in its proper perspective.

They should love her, of course....but she's hardly a role model.

I don't even believe that Soldier Mountain is a Bruce Willis property...

If you look up the whois information for soldiermountain.com, none of the information looks similar to other Bruce Willis owned web properties (brucewillis.com, e.g.).

I won't post the info here, but the whois info for brucewillis.com and soldiermountain.com tell me that if Bruce "owns" Soldier Mountain, it's a partial ownership, if that. The whois for soldiermountain.com _screams_ private _non-celebrity_ ownership.

Soldier Mountain is mentioned as one of his 'Other Endeavors' at his web site on the biography page.

Hey, newbie. Why don't you quit digging your hole any deeper? I think it's easy to see who is an asshole on this thread.

I've been in Mountain Home many times and don't recall a ski resort this is owned by an outsider. What's the name of the resort and when did he buy it? thanks in advance for the info.

Seargant Al Powell. He had some great lines in that movie.

And, the "Wanna breath mint?" comment was made to actor Paul Gleason, who played Deputy Police Chief Dwayne T. Robinson. Gleason has been in many movies (the Vice Principal in The Breakfast Club, Coach Hisler in Johnny Be Good with Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey, Jr., etc). He is always good for some classic one liners.

Classic exchange...
Sergeant Al Powell: Excuse me sir. But what about the body that fell out the window?
Dwayne T. Robinson: Well who knows? Maybe some stockbroker, got depressed.

Bruce Willis is from an earlier era of real Hollywood leading men. He and Mel Gibson are both out of place in today's Hollweird climate-and I'm so glad that they are.

"He bought out a ski resort near the Mt. Home, ID Air Force base."

Just a question.

Where is there a ski resort neat Mt. Home, ID? The place is out in the middle of a sagebrush-covered desert!

Bruce Willis is an A**hole! He bought out a ski resort near the Mt. Home, ID Air Force base. The resort offered the local military personnel and their families to ski free of charge one day without anyone else allowed on the mountain. When Bruce Willis bought the resort he cancelled the "Annual Military Day" and basically shut it down to anyone but his closest friends.

Uh, it's called private property, putz.

Yeah. I saw part of that last night and will watch the rest tonight in my time zone.

Whatever you want, Bruce, it's yours.

"And the attackers had every opportunity to just wait a couple of blocks and attack our guys later, without the children being around, but instead chose to attack straight through the children."

Wont be long before they are beheading children.

I stayed up waaaaay past my bedtime last weekend to watch 'Die Hard' yet again. I never tire of that movie.

So, we've got Bruce, we've got Mel Gibson...who else is on our team?

I have no idea why this country is not getting the information that Michael Yon has, you know, access to, is, you know, showing people. It's just not getting out, and it's baffling.

I think if Bruce Willis succeeds in making his movie about the Deuce Four, that would go a long way towards getting out the information, it would counter Jarhead, and I'm sure he'd make a bundle on it.

Rita appeared to be stunned at what all Bruce had to say. Even further stunned by the implication of if the Hollyweird types would go and see the troops they'd stop being the DUmmies that they are.

There are more conservatives out there than many people would guess. Perhaps more will have the courage to speak out.

Who knows, maybe being conservative, or at least supporting the country, will be deemed "trendy" and all the sheep will want to follow.

One of Michael Yon's most heartbreaking blogs.

http://michaelyon.blogspot.com/

Major Mark Bieger found this little girl after the car bomb that attacked our guys while kids were crowding around. The soldiers here have been angry and sad for two days. They are angry because the terrorists could just as easily have waited a block or two and attacked the patrol away from the kids. Instead, the suicide bomber drove his car and hit the Stryker when about twenty children were jumping up and down and waving at the soldiers.

Major Bieger, I had seen him help rescue some of our guys a week earlier during another big attack, took some of our soldiers and rushed this little girl to our hospital. He wanted her to have American surgeons and not to go to the Iraqi hospital. She didn't make it. I snapped this picture when Major Bieger ran to take her away. He kept stopping to talk with her and hug her.

The soldiers went back to that neighborhood the next day to ask what they could do. The people were very warming and welcomed us into their homes, and many kids were actually running up to say hello and to ask soldiers to shake hands.

Eventually, some insurgents must have realized we were back and started shooting at us. The American soldiers and Iraqi police started engaging the enemy and there was a running gun battle. I saw at least one IP who was shot, but he looked okay and actually smiled at me despite the big bullet hole in his leg. I smiled back.

One thing seems certain; the people in that neighborhood share our feelings about the terrorists. We are going to go back there, and if any terrorists come out, the soldiers hope to find them. Everybody is still very angry that the insurgents attacked us when the kids were around. Their day will come....
