Here it is with comment from Anderson, sort of funny.

Here he gets a little more time; he seems to know the education issue and doesn't give Obama a pass either.

That was nice.

Thanks for the links.

It's been a long time since I equated libe(R)tarianism with Reason.

It's sort of opposite.

I like the way he goes all "good will hunting" on them both

I like how the "right" wing considers ALL actors to be idiots.

Sound like jealousy to me. All they have is Gary Sinese, after Eastwood made a political fool of himself..

I think it's because the corporate types can't screen them out the way they do in most places, most places people work, it don't matter how good you are the bosses pick who they want to promote, just like the government in communist countries, so like the communist they tend to promote people who think like they do, which means they think the people at the top should make the rules.

Now when it comes to acting or sports the Suits don't get to pick, talent does, so you see more of what real people think, most the time we just don't hear from them cause it's not good for the communist, err I mean the bosses.

Matt Damon is legit.

Why shouldn't I work for the N.S.A.? That's a tough one, but I'll take a shot. Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. Maybe I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never met, never had no problem with, get killed. Now the politicians are sayin', "Oh, send in the Marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some kid from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile, he realizes the only reason he was over there in the first place was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And, of course, the oil companies used the skirmish over there to scare up domestic oil prices. A cute little ancillary benefit for them, but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back, of course, and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and fuckin' play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic. So now my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the fuckin' job interviews, which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin', 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat, the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what did I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.

Great! Now more people will tune their beliefs to some ignorant, Hollywood pretty boy. Goebbals could only dream of something like this...

Looks to me like this "Hollywood pretty boy" was kicking that "reporter's" ass.

Have you ever asked yourself why are these Hollywood types so liberal anyway?

I think it's because the corporate types can't screen them out the way they do in most places, most places people work, it don't matter how good you are the bosses pick who they want to promote, just like the government in communist countries, so like the communist they tend to promote people who think like they do, which means they think the people at the top should make the rules.

Matt Damon doesn't know WTF he's talking about. It's damn near IMPOSSIBLE to fire a bad teacher.

"In Patterson, NJ, it's ex-police detective Jim Smith's job to investigate claims against bad teachers and to try to go through the union-created, insane process of trying to fire REALLY bad ones. He says it's so hard to fire anyone that it took years to fire a teacher who hit kids. "It took me four years and $283,000. $127,000 in legal fees plus what it cost to have a substitute fill in, all the while he's sitting home having popcorn," said Smith.

There was a whole segment Stossel had on this with example after example of the processes required to fire a teacher.... and it was like 300 steps for fook sakes. Fully documented on how difficult the union has made it to let underperformers go. Wake up people. The facts are not on your side. The teaching profession is about protecting mediocrity, and just because you have a degree in math doesn't mean you can teach math. Knowing information and conveying it are two different things.

You think it's hard to get rid of a bad teacher? You should try to rid of a bad CEO. PNW had a guy running it thought he would buy a bank so as to run his salary up a bit. turned out that bank weren't good, almost kill us, but being a utility we were hard to kill. It did cost the company about 2 billion dollars to unload the thing, back when 2 billion was a lot of money. Whart happen to him? Did he get fired? NO he retired making 3 times in retirment what he made the year before he bought the bank, so it all work out for him, while thousands lost their jobs to pay the debt.

So yeah I'm all for holding people accountable, but I think we should start with the bastards that doing the most harm and taking the money while doing it.
