The Sopranos is the best TV show ... evAH!

more people die in 30 minutes of, say, "Total Recall" than in an entire season of The Sopranos.

Good point made by John Gibson yesterday:

So in the video, Hillary is the head of the family and Bill is the wife. OK, it's all very symbolic and new age-y. They're going back to the White House with switched roles. Great.

But is it just me or does the idea of a hit man eyeing a former president and a presidential wannabe seem just a bit much?

Let's just suppose a conservative jokester had made the same short film with Bill and Hill look-alikes and put that hit man, Johnny Sack, in. Wouldn't somebody be screaming for heads?

I'm just asking.

Wow, this man doesn't know how a spoof works. There's a big difference in doing it yourself and someone else spoofing you. So this analogy doesn't work.

This Gibson fellow isn't too bright is he?

You've no idea. I'd put his acuity just above Rush Limbaugh and just below a sack of hammers.

His logic here is the same logic that wonders why it's OK for blacks to use the n-word...

Give me a fucking break. Ronald and Arnold both acted in violent films, do they disturb you? Take your double standards somewhere else.
I don't think all violence in film equate the same way.

Would violence found in a Harrison Ford movie film equate the same way as viloence found in a Quentin Tarantino film?

I also think you should take your break from using profanity in these fourms.

Thanks,

dbs

I don't want to derail this thread, so I'm going to give you a rather simplified answer. If you have further questions feel free to PM me and we can discuss this in further detail.

The reason its "okay" for blacks to say the "n" word (though not all blacks agree that it is, including me) is the same reason it's okay for you to complain about your mom but if someone ELSE starts talking about your mom, well we have a problem.

Make sense?

Violence is violence. Like Irvine511 said more people died in Total Recall then every season combined of Sopranos.

I will stop cussing as soon as you stop being a hypocrite and practice what you preach. Deal?
