The thing that cracks me up is that the head of the NRA HAD FUCKING ALZHEIMERS!!!


Is that not fucked up to anyone else???

The guy wanted everyone to be able to get guns, and he probably had no idea where the hell he left his.

It's fucked up to me. And don't even get me started on mental illness and gun rights.

He was elected president of the NRA in 1998.

Something that the Left have a hard time wrapping there brains around.

Here are a few ideas that come to mind:

1-Setting aside your personal interests for others.
2-Uncompromising conviction for your values
3-Integrity
4-Character
5-Honor.

I could go on-those should suffice for now.

Wow, this is hilarious given the fact that conservative policy is all about self-interest. I'm not convinced you really know what your party's core platform is...

I stopped at number, I'm sure the rest of your list is just as ridiculous.

Marched for Civil Rights for MLK in 60s and hasn't wavered since.

That should be more than enough in and of itself.

That said what's troubling here are kids in their ignorance are saying the 10 Commandments made in the 1960s (I think) was cheesy, when in it's time it was"state of the art" for films of that day.

It's not ignorance. That's a crappy movie, in many ways due to Chuck's terrible acting.


That's my main beef with him: He got away with absolutely terrible acting for his entire career. His NRA bullshit was just the period on his career.

Martha-

I beg to differ my love. It was made in 1956 a state of the art film for the time and was nominated for an Academy Award and lost to "Around The World In 80 Days".

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049833/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ten_Commandments_(1956_film)

It couldn't have been that crappy of a movie in it's time to recieve all this attention:

Academy Award win and nominations
The parting of the Red Sea won the film its Oscar for Special Effects. DeMille was reluctant to discuss technical details of how the film was made, especially the optical tricks used in the parting. It was eventually revealed that footage of the Red Sea was spliced with film footage (run in reverse) of water pouring from large trip-tanks set up in the studio back lot.

Aside from winning the Academy Award for Best Effects, Special Effects, it was also nominated for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Color, Best Cinematography, Color, Best Costume Design, Color (Edith Head, Ralph Jester, John Jensen, Dorothy Jeakins and Arnold Friberg), Best Film Editing, Best Picture and Best Sound, Recording.



I thought Heston was great in Planet of the Apes and 10 Commandments, but I'm not a Kings of Leon fan either.
