    Recently a couple of Hollywood hacks demanded that the names of those who attended a Trump fundraiser have their names published. That way, others in the Hollywood community would know who they should hire for their productions.

    These people know little about Hollywood history. Back in the early 1950s, many actors, actresses, screenwriters and directors were blacklisted because they were said to be communists or had once associated with communists. It was a very dark period, and many innocent people lost their careers. Now the left is out to revive it.

    In the same vein, the most common term thrown around for those who disagree with the Democrats is that they are “racist.” It’s an easy charge, especially when you don’t need to prove it. All you have to do is say it.

    Is that any different from Joe McCarthy’s baseless charges that he had “a list of 200 communists in the government.” Nope. It has the same factual support as those charges from a reckless, drunken demagogue of a senator who didn’t bother to do his homework.

    That’s not say that there weren’t traitors in the government. Richard Nixon had the goods on Alger Hiss. That will still get Democrats crying foul at me despite the fact that information received after the fall of the Soviet Union confirmed it.

    Hollywood hacks are absolutely the last authority I would listen to for my political leanings. I consider myself conservative. Last year I was quite excited to see James Taylor in concert and a few of my friends felt the need to thrash me on a different forum for supporting a far left performer.... I could give a hoot about the mans politics. I simply love his music.... These stars lead lives so disassociated from the real world. They command none of my attention other than their value as entertainers.

    And I’ll say this. Even though you and I share the same political leanings, the race card ain’t a one horse show. I have heard those on the right legitimize their use of the race card. It’s ugly and accomplishes absolutely nothing either way it is played. It sickens me.

    And the dignity of the Office of the President of the United States ticks another notch lower.

    After reading your post about how The United States is the most warlike country in history, I would think that you should embrace Trump. In your mind, he is destroying the country, and since you think that the U.S. is the worst, most war-like contry in history, you should be happy that he was taking it to ruin.

    What is you ideal contry on this planet? You obviously hate this one, so there must be some place that pleases you. Please, tell where it is. Perhaps there are lessons to be learned if we study its history.

    Where exactly did you make the "logical" leap from the fact that we are the most aggressive Nation on the planet to, I should embrace Trump so that he destroys the country I and my children live in? The logic you are attempting to employ here is so poorly thought out, I can't even entertain a response.

    Shaking head...walking away.

    Your name should be “the cowardly lion” because after you write outrageous statements, condemning the entire history of The United States, you refuse to answer after I make a facetious comment. If the United States is that bad, why not relax and accept Trump because, “He is destroying the country” in your opinion. Since you think the country has been rotten and war-like for “91% of its history,” (221 out 245 years) you should embrace this opportunity to change the American experience radically.

    Why don’t try the positive approach and tell us what you DO want. What’s your vision? What is the preferable economic system? How do we respond aggressive foreign behavior? How might we avoid aggressive foreign behavior? You cited the “1936 to 1940 isolationist period” as something positive. Should we have ignored Hitler and Tojo?

    Don’t continue to be “the cowardly lion.” Tell us what you really want.

    I guess you are also "a paper tiger." You can't answer a direct question. Could it be that you don't know as much as you claim to know?

    So what is you ideal governmental and economic system? Do you want to scrap capitalism, or do you think it can reformed? What your suggested reforms be? Or are you advocating full-blown socialism with government ownership and central planning boards?

    Perhaps when I can use my desktop, I will post up my 1940 Wendel Willkie "Who smoked out who?" button.

    I noted that you didn't answer my question about our entry into World War II. That's a four year chuck out of you 91% war period. Should that count, or do You think that Hitler and Tojo would have just gone away?
