Big talk about Mason & Felder. Marriage counseling. Jeb Bush in 2008? Real liberals. Plus much more.

Your assessment of actors is true. It is truly the people behind
the scenes who possess the creative talent. The Master Puppeteers

What a relief that someone out there has written (so beautifully)
what I wish I could scream from the highest mountain. But we
should remember that the same people who are complaining are the
same people who were supporting Clinton’s behavior saying his
actions were a “private matter” and wanted Al Gore rather than
President Bush. God help us if either of them were in power at
this time. Again, thank you.

I once read a book by Aissa Wayne about her father, John Wayne.
It was titled, “John Wayne My Father.” She stated that one day
when she was with the Duke on a Movie Studio backlot she
overheard him say while he was looking at Clark Gable, “I think
acting is the only thing he is smart enough to do.” Right from
the Duke, he put it like it is.
The points you make I would largely agree with. One of the things
my parents turned me on to when I was younger were the old movies
with Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and Cary
Grant. In fact my middle name is Stewart after the actor. My
father worked with Cary Grant, Paul Newman and later on-with
Harry Belafonte. Back in those days my parents lived off Beverly
Glen Boulevard and my older brother and sister used to play with
Steve Allen’s kids. Politically speaking, although they were
Democrats, my parents were conservatives. They haven’t voted for
a Democratic candidate since John Kennedy and I am a Republican.
After years of seeing a lot of bad directing, bad acting and bad
scripts, dad cultivated a respect and a relief for viewing the
good stuff. It does take talent and ability to be a good actor
and not all actors are airheads. Ronald Reagan is a good example
and so was Jimmy Stewart of actors who knew the issues. All I
wanted to say to you is that a lot of patriotic and gifted actors
have served our country. Not all of them are as looney as Marlon
Brando or as treasonous as a John Wilkes Booth. As for the noble
snow shovelers, they often come to the City of Angels to be
actors and well, maybe they should just shovel snow!!
Thank you, Jackie Mason & Raoul Felder for saying what I would like to say to the ” Hollywood anointed ” but do not have the platform to do so.
Thank you. Thank you.

Re: The Washington Prowler’s Catholic Teaching:
Does anyone think it is time for some senator to stand up in the
Senate and defend the basic right to free expression, guaranteed
by the First Amendment. To my knowledge, speech that is offensive
to some people is also protected.

Re: George Neumayr’s When in Rome:
I just read your article “When in Rome.”
Concerning your opinion, please, consider that most Italians do not have any anti-American sentiments: We just were frightened by this warfare so strongly announced, round the clock, by the U.S. and Italian media. Many Italians demonstrated against the war in Iraq because they believed they were involved in it (psychiatrists call it, “warfare psychosis…” ) (sic!).
Only false Italian pacifists have some anti-American sentiments (usually communists and their supporters ), but they do not represent the opinions of any Italian liberals concerning the allied coalition’s intervention in Iraq. The Vatican State, the Pope and Catholic Church have their own opinions concerning any war as well.
Vendors in Rome still continue to sell the rainbow antiwar
because… BUSINESS IS BUSINESS!
Thanks for your attention.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
