Perhaps evil SOBs was a bit harsh. I was referring to all of the celebrities who use their position to push their political agenda.

I don't like it because they're ACTORS, not even the writers of what they do. Hardly qualified to tell me who to vote for. I suppose I'd be more bothered by any regular person who decided to vote for someone because their favorite actor endorsed the candidate.

I know they have free speech, but they're using their celebrity to talk about unrelated topics.

In any case, it's not just WND running the story.

Huh. I've never heard of the NY Daily, but the other two are infamous for being shamelessly partisan. Do you have anything from a reputable news source?

Heh. As opposed to, say, Republicans, who write all their own speeches?

Actually, I'd be hard-pressed to find a "celebrity" in the Democratic party, at least as anything but a supporter. Wasn't it the Republican party that put up Arnold Schwartznegger as a candidate?

Incidentally, all of the sources you have linked so far are, to differing degrees, right-wing sources. I'm seeing links giving away Unfit for Command and loaded, unjournalistic language. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I just wonder if this whole thing is a right wing hoax to scare up sympathy for the GOP. I mean the plan itself is pretty stupid. Does anybody think tha GWB's nomination could possibly be endangered?

It's all just rumor. Every single bit of it just repeats the same thing with no source for the rumour or the quotes.

Do you really think someone is going to post something on the *internet* to screw with something that the POTUS is going to be at and not have the secret service show up, like, the next minute at their elbow? Do you realize that the secret service has shown up at people's residences for a lot less serious merde than this?

Come on.

My bet is that this is just some modern version of the plumbers' dirty tricks or the press inflating some aol chat room hyperbole.

By the way, I don't mind if a source is partisan as long as it at least uses non-partisan facts to back up what it says. I mean, ideally you want an objective source, but we'd be here all night trying to define what that is. [Smile]

I'm so burned out on politics I could scream.
What's wrong with actors endorsing certain candidates? Does this mean that just because they are actors and say, not political essayists or something like that, they don't have the right to express their opinions on Bush?
Perhaps they have done their homework. Maybe they have done a great deal of research on the issues and just don't feel, based on Bush's record, that he is a good leader for the country...
Plus, this story does seem a bit bogus... But, being burnt out on politics, I don't care if they do try to block the nomination... Good for them. *still recenting the Republicans for holding their Convention in NY*

Thanks. [Smile]

I take that as a sincere compliment even though I'm female. [Smile]

Like I said, I'm happy to have that story be false. I usually hate politics, too, but recently I've been reading political things more and more.

I'm not really sure why. I've already made my mind up about who I'm going to vote for. Guess I just am really curious about who's going to win. I know I don't WANT Kerry to win, and I don't think he'll be good for the country... but my day to day life?? I don't see much changing.

I survived the Clinton years, after all.

I understand that wnd is partisan, but they post the most interesting articles sometimes. I'm addicted.

Syn, nothing is precisely wrong with actors (or anyone else) endorsing candidates. The problem comes up when they do so during a performance (other than a show that is explicitly politically motivated, like that upcoming cartoon movie). A person who goes to see a performance and enjoy themselves, and who instead hears a political spiel, has some right to be annoyed by that, and to complain about it.

Why? What if the performer extends the show an extra two minutes to make up for the time "lost" to a political message?

OK, this is probably a hoax. It is, however, very interesting to compare reactions to another, less substantiated, more debunked hoax earlier in the year:

This is a fairly well documented method of some right-wing sources, to spread an unsubstantiated rumor (as it is currently) and just link to each other until everyone has heard of it... Furthermore, you then get other, less-aligned groups mentioning because they are afraid to miss a scoop, and therefore inadvertently add a certain level of legitimacy to the claim. Of course, the news places can then later admit, quietly, that they never got confirmation, but by then the meme is out there.

I'm sure parts of the left do this too.

The NY Daily News is a fairly right-wing paper, and your other sources are similarly biased.

And once again, these protestors may be leftists, but that doesn't make them Democrats.

I repeat: leftist != Democrat, and vice versa...

It's good of you to admit this, even as an afterthought. It's just as well documented on the left as the right.

TomDavidson, was the insult entirely necessary? I already said I was aware of the site's bias. I'll admit I should have verified the validity of the article before posting it, but it was an honest mistake--one which I readily admitted. For you to imply that because I read wnd that I'm a dittohead is unfair and unfounded. Just because you don't like a news source doesn't mean you have the right to criticize its readers or viewers.

And as for all of you pointing out that the sources are all right-wing, thanks, but we already covered that last night.

Besides, it's a good thing to read varied news sources instead of just the ones with a very liberal or leftist bias, which, unfortunately, are most of the mainstream papers.

Another thought... I don't agree that Fox is right-wing, although compared to the mainstream it might seem that way because the right side has a voice.

Think again. In the last election there were 50.4 million votes for Bush and 275.6 million people living in the US so only 18.3% of the population voted for Bush. No matter what happens in this upcoming election, it is highly unlikely that those of you who vote for Bush will represent more than 20% of the US population.

Republicans are hoping that the demonstrators outside will become unruly, use foul language, attack police, destroy property, and try to hurt people, etc. Because then they can point the finger and say those people are representative of those who oppose them, mainly the Democrats. It is hard to deny that the demonstrators are largely Democrats, when they carry so many Kerry signs.

The contrast between orderly and civilized Republicans on the inside, and violent and lawless Democrats on the outside, will provide a contrast that will probably gain Republican candidates many points in the polls.

And what happens if in the midst of shouted obscenities and riots and tumult by demonstrators, there is some major terrorist act somewhere in New York City? The demonstrators will automatically be linked to the terrorists at least subconsciously, in the mind of virtually everyone.

The demonstrators can only accomplish the opposite of what they want to accomplish. And they are setting themselves up so that they could be instrumental in bringing real ruin on their cause.

Well-- the demonstrators have already proved to be crass.

(The pres. name is 'Bush.' I'd be crass too, if I weren't such a prude.)

And:

quote:
New York Police Department officers were booed loudly when they moved onto the roof at the front of the (Madison Square Garden) arena.
What's the point of booing NYPD? The officers weren't keeping anyone from moving anywhere, they weren't even DOING anything at this point-- just making their presence known.

Much like the protestors. Good on 'em.

Same thing goes for Kerrey, of course. Clinton got less than 50% of the vote in both his elections, while Bush I and Reagan had majority votes both times. (The link below excludes many 3d party candidates for 1996.)

In fact, G.W.B. got more votes than Clinton did in either election, in absolute numbers and as a percent of total U.S. population.

Consider how it will play in the rest of the nation--and even among native New Yorkers--for protestors to boo New York City Police. They were the heroes of 911, who lost their lives running into doomed buldings and up the stairs of those buildings seeking to save people. Anyone who booes them now will never be forgiven.

Because, Tom, I was comparing presidents to each other. And Gore has never been president, and Carter's too far back to care about in this regard.

I thought it was fair game since the post I was replying too jumped all over an obvious careless error as if it were an attempt at propganda.

Ron- I think you're wrong. The Republicans aren't going to make a big deal out of the protestors (unless there's some major violence, which there won't be), and the image of protestors booing police isn't making it into the news media.

I think it's ironic, though, that the coverage of the protestors just about equals coverage of the convention. What does this indicate? Liberal media bias? Fair reporting?

All conventions are lackluster, since they decide nothing.

Because the massive numbers of protestors flocking to the Island are relatively unprecedented.

One more versed in recent American history might remember the riots surrounding another national convention, but I don't think the numbers were comparable.

Today carries a feeling of tension we haven't known before and the news media is covering everything because nobody knows what will explode first.

Viet Nam never launched an attack on our shores.

1. 9/11
2. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq
3. The quagmire of Iraq
4. The economy
5. Fear of future terrorist attacks in the US
6. The lack of large quantities of WMD material in Iraq

All of the factors above blur into a general discontentment with the government. Enough to spur the numbers of protesters we've seen during the RNC.

Certainly, this doesn't speak to the entire US population, but there are enough elements to motivate people who might have been otherwise undecided before.

I think it's safe to say there are more stress factors present now than during the Viet Nam war.

Very funny, Foust.

I usually prefer serious content in my entertainment. But not always. Sometimes, after a hard day, I want to just shut down and vegetate for a little while. Sometimes, after a frustrating day of serious topics, I just want to laugh.

If I then turn on the television to watch Stargate and the episode is about terrorism, I'll be annoyed. Even if it clearly wasn't intended as a "message" episode (which sometimes it was).

Websites have urged readers to trick specially trained NYPD Labrador retrievers with gunpowder or ammonium nitrate-laced tablets in a plan to stop trains and cause the evacuation of the Garden during the convention.

One site instructs readers, "Go to a rifle, pistol or skeet shooting range, spend an hour shooting to saturate clothing with the smell of gunpowder, go directly to a New Jersey Transit, LIRR or MTA subway train headed for Penn Station.

"Also try to have at least two people on a train in different locations, sit or stand near the doors as the train approaches the station, try to get near police and dogs, loiter as long as possible around the dog, try to pet it if possible. If the dog alerts on your scent, do not leave or resist; the situation will cause a major disruption of the train schedule ... ."

"It is important that the police call in all possible resources to investigate the situation," the site says. " ... This will result in the maximum disruption. With any luck, Madison Square Garden will be evacuated."

Honestly this is not just stupid it's sick. To draw all available forces away from the convention could result (heaven forbid) in large causalties if terrorits attacked the convention. In my opinion anyone who pulls one of these things should get the bok thrown at him, and the brick, and the dirt clods, and the rocks, and the ice pick, and the shovel, and the hand grenade, etc.

I'm not sure, Drogo. But it wasn't a subterfuge. I think it was the one that aired recently (and will be on again this weekend). A group of religious fanatics (who don't know what the Goa'uld really are) tried to take over an alien planet as soon as they found out the Stargate was real.

I'm not really clear on that episode--I was kind of half-asleep while I was watching it. It seems to me now, thinking back, that the fanatics had risen up and seized power through terrorist activity, but I may not be remembering it correctly. I'm certain I have seen terrorists in previous seasons, but I don't remember when.
