If these horses lose their jobs pulling carriages around NYC, they're going for slaughter. There is no market for such horses.

I've never seen (admittedly, only in photos or tv) a NYC carriage horse who looked other than healthy and in good flesh. (I notice the condition of horses in person or on screens--the horses in 'Cliffhanger', for example, were well on the way to starvation)

You should see some of the 'pets' in backyards about this time of winter that are 'loved' by their people.

He’s only back in the news for repeating his spiel from January on Jon Stewart. At least he’s going after a commie in real life; as far as the propaganda movie is concerned, he’s already been paid.

Hollywood has a way flipping everything upside down and presenting an altered view of reality. Good guys become the bad guys. Villains become heroes. In Neeson’s latest movie, “Non-Stop” and TV’s “Revolution”, the bad guy(s) turn out to be military veterans/and or “Patriots”. Both shows are so entertaining that you briefly forget how insidious liberal propaganda is while watching them. When it is over, you realize that you have been had and a Jedi mind trick has been performed on you. I see evidence all the time of how effective liberal propaganda is when I see people on this website refer to themselves as
“Red” or being from “Red States”. Really the whole world has been turned upside down. In a little less than 60 years, this country’s entertainment has gone from “Father Knows Best” to “Married with Children” and from “Gunsmoke” to “The Following”. Yeah, I know. I am a hypocrite as I watch these shows too.

You're correct, he did this in his movie "Unknown" where (spoiler alert) the villain(s) turned out to be a multi-national, America-based (of course) grain co. and the hero (ubelievably) is a Saudi prince who develops a kind of grain to save the starving masses.

Liberals must turn reality upside down to come up with their plots. In real life, the multi-national saves millions from starving while the Saudis are plotting ways to poison Jews and promote the Caliphate.

Well I guess Neeson wrote the film? I don’t think he did. I could not read the entire rant from Beck because I don’t want to know the specifics. I find it immature for Beck to ruin the film. Anyway I really like Neeson’s film Taken. I feel sorry for him to lose his wife in such a quick and tragic way. He said he received thousands of sympathy cards from all over the world except for the resort he was staying at. That is a horrible place to stay if you ask me. My mom was on a cruise with the entire family. She got sick and had to be immediately taken off the ship (in fact they turned the ship around). She ended up dying at the hospital and the cruise ship company sent us a sympathy letter. What is wrong with that resort??? Bunch of jerks! I don’t believe that Neeson’s film will be number one this weekend because of Son of God which is going to do exceptional in terms of ticket sales. Churches have been buying up pre-purchased tickets.

Irish actor, Liam Neeson has reportedly given up on his Catholic faith and is converting to Islam.

The Hollywood star, 59, was recently filming in Turkish city Istanbul and became fascinated with the Muslim faith during his stay.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

“There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.”

Soon after speaking with The Sun, Liam met with prominent Muslim clerics and mullahs from Turkey and reportedly has begun the conversion.

Same here - the trick is not so much to stop them from being mentioned/cited in the news; the real trick is to get folks to stop posting them on FR. IOW - the only way to not get bothered with them is to not click on them and read them.

I don’t think the Weekly World News, the same publication that came up with the Bat Boy Story, has a lot of credibility. I don’t like Hollywood’s twisted world view, but quoting specious sources such as the one above does not advance the argument against liberalism.
