First, I have to say I've really enjoyed your input on this site. Sometimes you say things that are exactly how I feel. It's great! I have a theory that kind of goes with what you were saying along the lines of destroying the U.S. from within. I think it's Hollywood trying to control elections, policies, and bring our young people into a very liberal way of thinking, hence, ensuring future voters for their causes in the future. An excellent example is the difference between Mel Gibson's 'Passion of the Christ' and 'Brokeback Mountain'. 'Passion of the Christ' was a box office phenomenon (20 million on it's first day!). Mel Gibson had to fight to make that movie, and he's been snubbed by Hollywood. There were no Hollywood awards for that movie. Here's a quote I think sums up what happened at the Oscars:
-------------
"Apparently, Hollywood's elites have learned nothing from all the Holocaust movies and television programs they have chosen to honor in the past."

"Happily, the American people still get it. Compared to such Christian-friendly hits like The Passion of the Christ and Oscar-winner The Incredibles, the euthanasia movies have earned very little money at the box office."

"American moviegoers also rejected the politically-correct, homosexual pedophile movie Kinsey, which garnered so many kudos from the press."
--------------

'Brokeback Mountain' (a story of two gay cowboys) was given all kinds of awards, probably several Oscars. Michael Moore is like a god in Hollywood, or at least he was when they thought he might influence the 2004 election. Also, you can see how the Muslims in here refer to what they've watched on tv and the big screen and believe it to reflect our lives. That's scary considering what we have out there: The Jerry Springer Show, MTV, most talk shows. Our freedom of speech seems to have come around to kick us in the butt.
