    This was posted within the original moore thread but i figured it deserved its own thread.

    What did i say? He just did this for publicity to sell his film to another company for distribution. So all you censorship whores and Jeb Bush tax conspirators, what say you?

    I am at a loss.

    I cannot understand how Disney's refusal to distribute this film can be construed as censorship. If Disney bought the film and then locked it up, refusing to release it at all, that might border on censorship. But then again, it would be Disney's property and they can do with it as they please. We have all heard accusations of censorship and violation of free speech rights tossed about by the likes of Susan Sarandon, Ed Assner:death: and the Dixie Dips.

    Somehow these people feel that any adverse reaction to their statements amounts to censorship. Sarandon and Assner are un-invited to some functions and they start screeching about their rights being violated. The Dixie Chicks must think that we are obliged to buy their albums and that failure to do so is censorship. Michael Jackson's last album is a flop, so the Japanese owners of the label must be racists. :finger3: (ho-hum)

    The folks out in Hollyweird have totally lost their sense of proportion. They have forgotten that they are simply entertainers, much like the court jesters of medeival days. But today, the clowns think they run the kingdom.

    Arnie and Mel Gibson are the only voices of Reason out in Cali.
