The first question that comes to mind is: is Shyamalan going to receive a film credit in Toronto? Otherwise, lamenting the possibility that Shyamalan might not receive a film credit at some future time is not very productive.

The budget issue is but a symptom of a much larger problem within Harrisburg - the Gov as well as the legislature, for the most part, don't give a damn about the taxpayers - just look to pay raise as an example - the legislature had plenty of time to do their job, they just decided not to...so there you go.

This is a non-story.....he shot movies in PA before the film tax credit. He can simply use that as a bargaining chip..let him go elsewhere!

Also, Rendell can give a tax credit to his Hollywood buddies but not to more essential aspects of our society!

Pennsylvanians voted scum like Rendell into office, now live with it. Obama is another example of your choices you must either live with or push to impeach that communist, while you still have a country like we were raised in remaining. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

GOD DID BLESS AMERICA earl, Your just to stupid to see it. Obama was elected to office to show voters how racists like you want to run the country.

We all know communist means black, you didn't refer to the white man Democrat Gov. Rendell as a communist , only the black man.

Your a Republican Racists.

Perhaps, he has family and/or friends in PA. Or maybe he used to live here. What's it to you? Do you call everyone who disagrees with you a racist? Also, being a communist/socialist has nothing to do with one's color - it's an ideology. I think maybe YOU are the racist, that's all you ever talk about. Does the term "displacement" mean anything to you? You're a textbook example of it. May God bless you and America. BTW-I'm not a Republican.

God Blessed everyone when he put Obama in the White House. So the word 'BOY" is now Republican ideology, interesting.

What are you whining about now? I couldn't tell you what the republican ideolgy is and what's with the word "boy"? Are you referring to yourself again? Well, that would explain your immaturity.

Don't be confused I'm not whining. I'm on this site to destroy the Republican Party.

You are asking me about the same Republicanm Party that fights for the life of every unborn child, but then turns their back on this same mother that has cancer and has no healthcare coverage.

Who made Republicans God ?

Well, good luck with that endeavor and while you are at it could you please get the Democratic party as well? Also, so sorry but I can not speak for anyone but myself. Good night and God Bless!

Please don't even bother to respond to this kind of garbage. It is beneath our dignity to have to respond to charges of racism every time we have a substantive policy dispute with this president.

Do you have plenty of those white sheets with holes cut out for your eyes and your mouth?

I predict you will be a big hit at Ku Klux Klan meetings.

Go for it, Bubba. Make that Racist Bubba.

Aw, good old Coach Jerry. Already another like-minded simpleton who can meet up with you at the Ku Klux Klan meetings.

Be sure to bleach those sheet nice and white and be sure the holes for your eyes and mouth are cut out neatly. We wouldn't want you embarrassing your fellow ignoramouses.

Would you, perhaps, be meaning "projection" instead of displacement?

Your comment makes no sense at all.

No, I did not mean
"projection" but now that you mention it, I believe WOW may be guilty of that too. In all his posts he accuses everyone who disagrees with him of being a racist. I assert that he is angry or has issues with someone/something else but takes it out on others. Do I really feel he is a racist himself, therefore "projecting" his feelings onto others?... it's possible.
Also, I'm sorry that you found my post so confusing. God Bless You and Good Night!
