Listen to the end of this video very carefully.
This is the ideology that we have allowed to be in power.
Yeah, I saw this one earlier. These are the same people who would screaming if a Republican or Conservative said such a thing about them.
Mark Twain once said: "I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure."
I guess some we'll have to wait a while longer to enjoy.
I wonder how ole Harry's prostate cancer is doing.
I hear they had to get his head out his ass to check it.
I am sort of waiting for the onslaught of voices to tell me he's just one old guy or some such thing.
This stuff crops up almost daily but you are not supposed to notice that they say these things or pay any attention.
He is just one old guy. Unfortunately, we have far too many in this country who's minds can easily be bent and twisted with opinions like his simply because he's famous. A has-been but famous.
See they use celebrities particularly on the young.
I mean, you want to be like them don't you?
BFF, I am frequently amazed at how some think our young people should not be exposed to different points of view lest they blindly adopt them regardless of prior knowledge, history, or family upbringing.
The best we can do is teach our kids the values we believe are best for them, but also to think for themselves and recognize that an actor talking about politics may or may not have a valid point of view.
If you think that celebrities have that much influence over your kids then maybe you didn't do a great job of teaching your kids independent thinking skills.
So, whose kids are you worried about then? Mine don't even know who Harry Belafonte is, much less want to be like him.
He really is just an old entertainer spouting off on a political talk show. If you're worried about that, then I fear for your mental health.
You fear for her mental health? Its not much of a stretch to find some kid who would act out something a celebrity might offer up as a solution. Hell it ain't a stretch to believe your dear leader would act on it!
Oh so he is alone then??
I find it rather interesting how many of these alone types there are when it comes to radical talk on the liberal side, but Conservative?
Oh no...that's a radical person there......dangerous!
No, he's not alone, but any half-wit could figure out his statement was either a joke or stupid. And he's an entertainer, not an elected official, candidate for office, or even a talk radio host. He's a guy who made a dumb statement during a one-time appearance on a TV show.
For God's sake...he was joking! It seems that some people have become way too sensitive, that they go seeking to find negativism in anything they can. It was a JOKE, and anyone else can see that your claims are completely pathetic...just as pathetic as Nicki Minaj calling Steven Tyler a racist. -Victim Mentality-
If you have followed Harry you know it may have been a half joke but he was serious about it a bit.
A bit???? To me that is pure conjecture. Nothing more. There is nothing to debate here...unless you want to debate how insane the premise of this thread is.
Why don't you debate the fact that Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut...and referred to the American public as pimps? Oh, I forgot, Rush was just "joking"
Yeah like I said.
Let a Conservative "joke" and watch the fur.....
I think it is more than a joke since he is active in politics and has a record of saying things like during his meeting with Chávez, "No matter what the greatest tyrant in the world, the greatest terrorist in the world, George W. Bush says, we're here to tell you: Not hundreds, not thousands, but millions of the American people support your revolution." That it is true there are millions that support communism is true, and from that point of reference if one peels the layers of the onion away we're left with real concerns.
"Lol". I didn't watch the video, but did you seriously just wish death on someone because they have a different opinion than you? Or do you hate the music?
I loved that ending of Beetlejuice.
Amazing how so many pick works to grasp and use against others. Take it out of context and "Attempt" to make it something it wasn't! The people have spoken, President Obama has been reelected! Get over it!
Let's get an understanding....I didn't say Harry was in power.
I said that ideology is in power and it is.
“If this were a dictatorship it would be a heck of a lot easier... as long as I'm the dictator. Hehehe.”
― George W. Bush
When George W. Bush said this, he was POTUS. Do I think his statement represents the Republican or conservative ideology? No, it was just Dubya being Dubya.
Yes, it was a joke from GWB. But, when you have a person like Barack Obama in the White House, it's no joke. Not when the man already acts like a king, demanding this and demanding that.
Last I checked, we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, meaning Barack Hussein Obama is our EMPLOYEE. As are all the members of Congress. They all work for us, not the other way around, and it's high time these "people" (I'm being nice) remember that, lest they be fired and sent home or impeached and sent to jail. The second is looking better and better all the time.
Jonesy, I agree with you that President Obama is our employee. Apparently, the majority of voters want him to continue in his job, since he was just elected to serve another term. While I can empathize with your obvious distaste for President Obama since I felt similar disdain for Dubya, I hardly think you will get your wish that he will be impeached and sent to jail. He would have to commit an impeachable crime first, wouldn't he?
While I spent eight years appalled by the walking and talking (barely) disaster that was President Bush, I faced the reality that he was our President and was not going away until his term was over. I survived; you will, too.
I know I'll survive, PrettyPanther. The question is will the United States of America? IMHO, it's not looking good. When Barack Hussein Obama and his party is done, we'll simply be known as the United Socialist States of Amerika.
As for impeachable crime(s), we shall see, PrettyPanther. We shall see.
The only truly impeachable crime is making Congress mad enough to impeach you. Richard Nixon's crime? Lying to the American people. Clinton's crime? Subborning perjury and committing perjury(both real world crimes) Barrack Obama's real crime - refusing to enforce Federal Law. - is unlikely to get him impeached.
We have moved from the rule by law to the rule by men. It is a new Dark Ages, a feudal era and we are finished as a free people. Serfs paid a lower tax rate than we do now and were freer than we are to abandon identity and move to a new play. We are identified, taxed, dictated to by the state. Law does not contain the state - Fast and Furious is just one example.
Good lord every post you have is better than the last. Please tell me more about how every politician who doesn't ask themselves "What would Jonsey50 do?" should be thrown in jail.
I am always amazed how everything circles right back around to Bush.
It justifies anything at all.
Surely you don't expect libs/Dems or their president to take the responsibility of their own actions, do you?

That's right, you're an entertainer. We buy tickets to games for our entertainment, and you are just a small part of what we enjoy. When you feel your riches give you some special right to make a political stand, you...

My message to celebrities who use the podium and the position of their popularity to try to sway public votes and opinions ---------Just shut up!How do you poll about celebrity opinions?

I am really curious about what other women think; because I've only recently started paying attention to politics since the media is ramping up Trump so much, lately. Before that, I'm sorry... I was not even SORT of...
