We the undersigned American Citizens stand against Wealthy Hollywood Celebrities abusing their status to speak for us. We do not believe that they have a clear understanding of how we live, what we fear, and what we support. We believe that celebrities Martin Sheen, Mike Farrell, Tim Robbins, Rob Reiner, Barbara Streisand, and others with them are using their celebrity to interfere with the defense of our country. We believe that Hollywood Celebrities use their wealth to make their own personal issues known while Americans would never have the resources to speak out in this manner. We support President Bush in his efforts to defend our homeland, to defend democracy, and to take any measures to end the threat of terrorism. We do not claim to know more than anyone, especially President Bush. We elect a President who we can trust to make proper decisions based on facts available to him and not available to the rest of us. This is one reason trustworthiness and character is important in the people we elect into office. War is not easy, there are many before us who sacrificed their lives for freedom and if supporting citizens in other countries who cry out for democracy and freedom aids in the war against terrorism we support it.
This Statement and its signatures will be published publicly and or delivered to Martin Sheen and Mike Farrell.

Would you also boycott any company that uses lobbyists to sway Congressional opinion? It's the same damn thing.
What did Chester do?
If the company spewed the hate and divisiveness these celebrities do, yes I would boycott them...just as I'm boycotting Chrysler. I don't believe any of us are advocating any form censorship...we just take offense at their methods and, hell, we might even respect their opinions if they were consistent and not presented with such venom. When a conservative disagrees, for the most part, there's still a level of respect shown and the disagreement is presented by less volative means. Sure, you can find exceptions. Gingrich came on a bit strong in 1994 for example, but I'm talking about "philosophy" differences about how to disagree.
Liberals have no principles, no boundaries, no tactic -- ethical or not, that they won't take. None. For example...What would the liberals do to Rush Limbaugh if he produced a "Mammy" ditty about...oh, say...Maxine Waters the way that Florida a$$hole did about Condoleeza Rice? The local NAACP office said nothing. Neither did the national NAACP. Nor did Jesse Jackson. Nor did any other liberal representative. It appears you have to be "their" type of African-American before you're valued enough to fight for. There's a thousand other examples like this where the liberals have said one thing, did another, and were shameless about their inconsistencies. It would be interesting to know how many of these bleeding-hearters protested or complained when Pee Wee Clinton took military action. My guess is none of them did.
And some of us are just sick of their $hit!!
But it's a personal decision. We who think a boycott is the most powerful way we can express our displeasure have made ours. They've made theirs. And you've made yours. What a country!
It is, indeed. I am not saying boycotting them is wrong. I just am a tad annoyed at some of the bile that goes with it.
A realist would understand that 75% of the people in this country are clueless about any political position of any sort. The majority of people do not vote. It's a cynic's position but it's one that holds water, i think.
A position I agree with. There's nothing wrong with being wary...but if we truly "believe" we have to take positive steps to make this 'ol world a better place. We can't let the inmates run the asylum unopposed then bitch because of the state we find ourselves in.
I believe the venom spewed by the libbers is what's turned people off. They make all conservatives out to be three-headed monsters to enslave their most dependable constituency...the minorities. They want to enslave people from cradle to grave where they "believe" the only way to survive is through governmental largesse. But the American people are slowly but surely catching on. That's why us conservatives are kicking a$$.
And I think boycotting works. Alec Baldwin has kept a low-profile lately. Methinks perhaps his pocketbook is suffering.
His new show, "Dragnet", starts next week -- I'm sure Jack Webb is rolling over in his grave.
Sgt. Friday will probably be portrayed as a "sensitive type" blaming society for the actions of the scum he has to arrest.
It's America's fault that there are criminals.
Has she even BEEN in a movie or television show since it ODAAT went off the air?
Oh my....desparate attempts to revive careers for former Hollywood stars trying to revive their long-forgotten careers.
