I very seldom am driven to give an opinion on an article that I read but I felt strongly compelled to give one on the article that Ben Stein did on the Oscars. HOW DARE HE? I have to say that no one has infuriated me quite as much since Bush allowed all the people in New Orleans and Mississippi to wait for eight days for rescue! I can not believe that this man can only comment on the lack of Troup praising! Where was he with all the other award shows when almost each actor gave praise and blessing to the troops!? This night was to give awards to all the film artists and actors. There was hardly time to get everyone presented as it was. Why didn’t this clown speak to the character of the films and the content that make people think and reflect on all the world events and issues? I just watched Crash last night for the first time and no wonder it won!! What a thought provoking and inspiring film that was!! I came away with a full range of emotions and thoughts on my own prejudices and beliefs!
Mr. Stein is obviously a narrow minded man and I certainly feel sorry for him to be in this world. Also, they are not celebrating being gay but trying to get to a “live and let live” attitude after seeing the world almost reverse itself to the KKK thinking! I tell you I have thanked God that I didn’t put children on this earth due to the way things have declined!p>I would like to think that Hollywood is using the best talent and voice that they have to make people think and to show a different perspective to the world!! Stein ought to understand that as the Bush party has been trying to put their perspective (spin!) on the world since they got in office! I pray for the world! I honor and pray for the troops that misguided people put in harms way! I DO NOT hold actors and actresses responsible for what man (in office) has created! Their job and they do it VERY well is to instill thought and creativity on the subject of their film. They have been given the license to do their job, I suggest that Stein worry about those people who are in power that can truly damage the world! Thank you for allowing me to vent and for your time. br> — unsigned /p> p> Without question, one of the most cogent and well thought out observations on our Menchausen weaknesses… br> — William Elliott /p> p> I believe this is the same person on “Sunday Morning.” If so, I really appreciate all the words you say. I wrote to “Sunday Morning” on one occasion regarding one of your opinions. You speak what I really feel and I truly appreciate it. I wish there were more of you that speak out that have access to the nation as you do. br> — Janet Reynolds /p>
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?
