I wouldn't give this flaming liberal the time of day...and note he isn't going to part with his millions and give it to the needy either. He should stay in Hollywood with the rest of his cronies!

Does this say a lot for the Daily Craper. Capitalist and MJS09 have it right.

Hey get the book by Mark Levin
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto.

Oh yes have you seen anything in the paper about the Craper News Conf by the Obamacrap.

This man is more than a fool this one dumb A S S man. Not because ne black he is just stupid.

I've never understood why people would choose their entertainment based on the performers' political leanings.

I hear conservatives say all the time that they wouldn't have anything to do with, say, Bruce Sprinsteen or the Dixie Chicks or Alec Baldwin or, in this case, Richard Dreyfuss. All talented people. And folks like you don't say "he has no talent" or "I don't like his work." It's always, "I won't support a liberal entertainer."

I find this odd because I've never really thought about someone's political or cultural beliefs when assessing their art or deciding whether I want to see a movie or a concert.

I don't recall ever hearing a liberal person say, "I won't go see a movie with Stallone or Bruce Willis or Arnold Schwarzenegger, or I won't go to a country music concert, because that performer is conservative."

Richard Dreyfuss is a great actor. He's had a terrific career. There's no admission fee, so it's not like any money is going to be funneled into a cause you don't support.

But you bitterly say you wouldn't go to see him because, dammit, he's a liberal and you don't want to see no liberal.

Some of the entertainers like to voice their politics while they perform. Now...shut up.

I could care less about his politics. He's simply a tool. He's arrogant and boorish, and quite vain. He hasn't had a hit moving in years, and his oscar was by default. Jaws made him, not the other way around.

1.) I guess you didn't bother to read my post, since I mentioned conservative entertainers who are also outspoken but who don't seem to incur the wrath of fans who have differing opinions politcally.

2.) As you make it clear, your answer to anyone who has a differing viewpoint on ANYTHING is to tell them to "shut up." Very enlightened. I saw a post that got under my skin, and I tried to respond in a way to point out what bothered me and maybe to provoke an intelligent thought or two. You read my post and responded: "Shut up." You're a piece of work, you are.
