Good grief. That's quite a list. I'm aware of the ubiquity of liberal leftist in Big Media. Even still, that list is sobering. I'm surprised that Coleman kept it as close as he did.

If we are hit again, let's hope that it's Hollywood and not New York.

Does Kevin Nealon really have money to be throwing around to political causes? I haven’t seen him in anything for awhile.

I'm a bit surprised about Steve Martin backing Franken. One thing I liked about him was he was funny without being that political. I could have sworn it seemed he leaned slightly on the conservative side when he hosted the Oscars a few years back.

Oh well, maybe it was a courtesy donation because of his SNL connection. There are many ex SNL'ers on the list.

This list is shocking. I had to print it to add some to my boycott list. Old movies are better anyway. I refuse to watch these communist traitors. Half of them that call themselves actor or actress are liars by calling themselves that anyway. Their talent is laughable.

George Soros a "financier?" Wow. That's gilding the lily.... He's an unprincipled, megalomaniacal, greedy crook (literally), and a socialist to boot who doesn't care in the least about the suffering of people who'd be sacrificed along the way to the achievement of his goals.

If he pulled this stunt on Norm Coleman (and it seems completely likely to me) to get revenge on him for exposing his friend Mark Malloch Brown, thus to make him ineligible to head the World Bank, using his picked man, the SecState of Minnesota to "queer" the vote, then there's something else I wouldn't put past him.

I think Obama is his picked man, too, and for the same reasons Brown was: As POTUS, he would be the best "insider" in the world, probably, to pass along info to Soros re: activities in the U.S. Treasury, and whatever info he had regarding impending moves by overseas national banks.

Plus Obama's plans for economic "recovery" — trillions of debt-financing from here as far as the eye can see (not even counting the multi-trillion unfunded liability in the Social Security and Medicare systems) — will absolutely bankrupt America, and drive the value of the dollar down a black hole. A savvy currency trader like Soros with a preference for the "short" position could possibly make hundreds of billions of dollars (jeepers, maybe trillions) out of the collapse of the dollar.

I understand China has been signaling over the past few weeks that it is not exactly eager to extend the kind of credit the U.S. Treasury needs to make good on Obama's promises to the fools and children who cannot see him for what he is: A flim-flam man who does not love America, and who will not uphold and defend the Constitution. I strongly doubt he prefers a rule of law to his own rule....

Anyhoot, if China and the Saudis pull back on making loans to us, interest rates will have to rise to attract capital. With rising taxes, and rising unemployment, this could break the back of the American economy.

Good-bye capitalism; and good-bye to the America we know and love.

The only one that hurts is Abrams.

Newman can’t give any more money himself, but he’ll be voting for Franken as often as he runs.
