    Brad Pitt in the last minute of the film, 'Killing Them Softly,' utters a line that should be embedded in our national psyche.

    "Should be" embedded in our national psyche? It is. Already. I wouldn't say its a good thing either.

    Kind of a cynical view. If it was only a business, we'd be better off. A throwaway line written by a Hollywood lefty who apparently has a problem with the founders and the country in general.
    If that's what you think of this country, move to Cuba.

    You're not going to start on the Che Guevara quotes now, are you?

    It already happened. The event occurred at 6 pm eastern on December 11th 1987. All down hill since then :cool:

    Naw, I'm much too busy rehearsing in worn-out shoes and tin cup in hand, the number of 'Brother Can You Spare A Dime.' I hear it's coming back.

    Sad, but true. Not just one line, but the whole scene. You're fooling yourself if you don't see it for what it is.

    Yeah man!

    The haves are raping us 99% havenots and The Fed is a Zionist conspiracy and we need to legalize marijuana this weekend and to get our 100,000 military bases out of foreign countries and we need open borders and we need to go back on something called The Gold Standard and everybody should put in equal effort and get equal results and share equally in everything they need...

    And only a party of the dictatorship of the proletariat can distribute everything fairly. You need more hope and more change!

    You idjuts dun see dat!?

    Movie alternate ending: "Don't pay me my money -- the rule of law, right and wrong, have been done away with. Besides, I have my rations, hash, Angelina and adopted trophies at home and you may be lazy and shiftless and want my money and your McDonald's all for yourself. But that's my fault because I exist. MY labor and intellectual property are YOURS to do with what you like and as I'm told by The Party. Will you buy me a drink first next time!?"

    Course Pitt makes $23,000,000.00 per year. By himself.

    Pretty much what I'd expect from a far-left liberal arse-whole like Brad Pitt. Typical Hollyweird left wing anti americanism.

    Ahh, Locutus ... after running through the gamut of implosion with you I come to embrace you as one who keeps us in line, faultily or otherwise, as a wise uncle, perhaps myopic in historic leanings. But just the same true. Thank you for being you.

    That is an interesting post.
    Do you disagree with me about Brad Pitt??? I would have thought you disliked him and his politics even more than i do.:confused:

    I have no patience with left-wingers, and perhaps with a greater or lesser degree with right-wingers, who, collectively, lack the experience that threw you and I into odds. They are outside of the loop. But once in a while even pearls of wisdom spills from the braying sounds of donkeys. It is that which catches my attention, sans political stance, which makes me for a brief moment ponder.

    Entertaining albeit uninteresting airs. 'course if I were grading your paper it would say "looking past the grammatical errors you are trying way too hard for arcane and have only found awkward through the archaic."
