I assume you don't get Gingrich confused with Buckley or Palin with Hitchens?
It's not that unusual to start out in one career and end up in another one. Life sometimes does that. Takes you in different directions.

All songs in the movie were by ABBA - kind of clever how the entire plot was developed around their songs and lyrics.
From the movie's promos, I wasn't impressed. But now, I am. It was, to me, a double-layered cake of emotion, story telling and dance.

Always liked/like Abba.

We've made some pretty big mistakes along the way in our relatively short history. I still have faith in the American people, their spirit and ingenuity. But it might be payback time.

<quoted text>So!! understand Bush carried on with the same Policies as Clinton.
Did Clinton have to deal with a 9/11? No, actually, Clinton bequeathed 9/11 to the next president with his repeated tepid responses to the numerous attacks on us and our interests by the islamofascists.
Clinton was also made to look good by a republican congress and the dotcom boom, which ended in 2000.
look it up.
How about the Clinton tax rates and the same level of spending?

You'll probably like this scene and song too then.

Good answer? You gotta be kidding, a BS answer.
To start with I am far from rich, comfortable yes. Busted my ass for 50 years, still work part time. Sent my kids to parochial schools, with our assistance, scholarships and loans they graduated from college. Good colleges, GU and EWSU. One is very successful in real estate, the other died in what should have been the prime of her life In addition I saved some money, I am not dependent on Social Security, I do take advantage of medicare with secondary insurance. My 401k and personal investments did okay, only idiots or those who depended upon losers got wiped out. You are just an envioussonofabitch, it is the rich's fault. You are a sad sack of shit. You always have to find someone or something to blame. The rich, Bush. Keep your hand out, it's the one thing you do well.

Nothing you said had nothing to do with my response. Reading your response I can tell your an old piece of shit wrinkled ass white man too stupid to understand that you are 1 person telling 1 persons life story. I come from the projects & though my life wasn't half as bad I've seen some real people living some real hard times. You too stupid to realize you've been blessed. You busted your ass! You think your the only 1? You ain't got much longer on this earth anyway old man so you'll be 1 less asshole america has to deal. It's fitting you & those like you come on te internet to talk shit that nobody even takes seriously. For every 1 success story you present, I can present you with 10 true american horror stories. It's okay to bail out wall st, but fuck main st. Your all for unfunded wars & rebuilding other countries, but you have a problem feeding the poor. GO OVERDOSE old man, you aint even worth my time or tax payers dollars.

Censorship inside of academia is rampant. Not just in grade schools but all the way to the Ivory Tower. It ain't gettin' better, either, since the Boy Messiah got in.
Good people need to feel that "We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."
Winnie knew the feeling of fighting ignorance and evil. Fight the good fight.
It's probably going to get worse before if gets better. If it even gets better.

We've lost our bearings and become too prideful somewhere along the way. It will probably take being brought to our knees before we realize how fragile we really are.

It's an interesting concept to build a play/movie around the musical works of someone or some group.

Pierce Brosnan plays that silent part well - a man being forced to listen to a woman spill her guts in angst and without uttering a single word in defense. Tough part:}

If taxes go up on 98% of Americans, that's on the GOP.
As for consumer confidence, this is retail's best Christmas in 4 years.
You're an idiot.
If Obama gets what he wants and the CBO says everyone's taxes will go up if he does, how is it on the GOP?

Or is it just a knee jerk reaction now?

Apparently Christmas shoppers didn't get the memo, or weren't polled. Best retail holiday season in years.
Maybe it's because everyone knows it might be the last good one in a while?

Sure hope not.

I actually thought that myself watching it again tonight.

Very effective acting doing nothing and saying nothing but doing and saying so much at the same time.
