I too feel sick to my stomach when I hear all the negative remarks going around. Who does want war? Certainly not me, but what is the alternative? Do we continue to let someone kill innocent people and just turn our backs? NO! We can't. I personally want to thank all our men & women in the military for endangering their lives in defending our country and for trying to help the Iraqi people to have some form of a decent life. If some of these so called "entertainers" lived there, they would have been drug out in the streets and publically murdered in front of all their fans. At a time like this, I feel we should all pull together and support our Country and all who fight for it. Sincerely, Carlis Atkins, Sanford, N. C., USA

I couldn't have said it better!!! I believe the reason that Hollywood takes the position that they do is because of greed!! They are agraid the war will cause people to cut back and maybe they would start with the entertainment field. I wish all those that believe in our nation and our President would stand up and do this: Boycott the entertainment field. Thanks Patsy Hatter

This Marine Corps Widow has not been to a movie, nor watched any of the television programs with "stars" who have in any way publicized their anti-American views of the Operation for Freedom in Iraq. This posture will not change after this conflict ends. I will remember who these people are and will continue ignoring their existence. Though they are exercising the very rights that our men and women are fighting for, I am very disgusted and disenchanted with their disrespect for the people losing life and limbs in this war to preserve exactly those rights and to extend them to other people desperately in need of them. Though they have the RIGHT, it definitely is not RIGHT! Consequently, any respect or admiration I may have had for them has long since been replaced with disdain. How dare they!!

I have been shocked and disgusted by many of the comments that have been made by members of the movie industry. You obviously are entitled to you opinion, but with this comes my right to speak out about your words. The problem occurs when, due to your name and star status, your words are immediatly flashed around the world. My comments do not receive that kind of publicity. What part of playing rolls in movies makes you qualified in this arena? You are not an expert on war, peace and international relations. This country has the greatest form of government in the history of the world. The only way we have been able to create and maintain the level of freedom that allows you to protest the war if through the bravery of our soldiers. They have payed dearly for our freedom. One basic rule of life is that freedom is neither free or cheap. It has and continues to come at the cost of lives. I would suggest that you do some serious soul searching and think of the young men and women that are currently in harms way to preserve our freedom. If you still feel that it is the right thing for you to protest and use the media atttention that comes from your star status. WE THE PEOPLE, CERTAINLY HAVE THE RIGHT TO NOT SPEND OUR MONEY TO FURTHER YOUR CAUSE. Sicerely, John Finney

If you must watch something, watch sports or go rent old John Wayne, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood movies. I can guarantee that we will not have to do this very long. A week and they will be changing their tune. Letís do it, now. Fred Cummins, Texas

I don't normally do this, i never thought that one voice really made any difference. Now I see that ,just one voice,, doesn't. However,take many of those"one voices" & put them together & they become something else ! Many Americans feel the way you do about the war, entertainers,& our president.Thank you for making available to us a place where " one voice " can be heard. Let us all join together & pray for our troops & let them know that we do support them. I love my country,I feel blessed to be born here & not in a country where it is ok to do harm to the innocents.rudy, in tennessee.

I agree with you completely. My son was in the first Gulf War (Navy) and has since retired. We should have taken Saddam out then but 20/20 hindsight is always better. I see very few movies because of the content of most of them and I will see none now. I have been in Jordan and seen the trucks of oil streaming down from Iraq illegally and I have spent time in Israel and I know that the intent of the terrorists groups is to eliminate Israel. I have been to Turkey and I feel very strongly that we should, when the time is right, pull our bases out of Turkey and see how they like losing all that American cash. In my mind, whether it be Hollywood or Middle East/European countries, you are either with us or you are against us. We need to pray daily for our leaders, our military and for the civilian people of Iraq. A proud Navy Mother and supporter of our President

I, too, am ashamed of the people that are protesting in this country and around the world. This war is the right thing to do for the people that are oppressed in Iraq and other countries. I think our President is doing a great job and I hope and pray that this time our allied forces will finish the job for all time. It would be very saddening to me and a lot of people that have loved ones in harms way for this great effort to be a lost cause if all the evil leaders of Irag are not removed in whatever way that it takes. I thank God that we live in a free country but, if terrorism is not dealt with, we will have many more terroist attacks in the United States Of American and around the world. People should be able to pursue whatever dreams they have and be able to worship their God. I, for one, only believe in the living God and his son, Jesus Christ. We must pray each and every day for our President and all armed forces in the allied services for God's speed in this effort and to protect each and everyone in harms way.

I had posted a brief msg before but after reading many comments....here I am again. During some of the Hollywood protests, there are two guys carrying their own posters that seem to go right over the heads of the others. One example: had the head of Martin Sheen and a couple others (in caricature I believe) and the words HOLLYWOOD ACTIVISM: NOW THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!!! In yesterday's paper there was an excellent article by Joel Mowbray titled HUMAN SHIELDS TURN TO HAWKS. This should be available on the Townhall.com website. It will open a few eyes. And finally, someone mentioned ONE NATION UNDER GOD. I will always remember Ronald Reagan's slogan "ONE NATION UNDER GOD - OR ONE NATION GONE UNDER!" Betty

Whether we agree or disagree with the U.S.-Iraq war, we need to support the troops over there fighting for our rights and freedoms. They are doing their jobs and following orders to guarantee our future human rights and dignity and to free other people from oppression under a ruthless dictator. I recommend that people see one movie before boycotting all movies and entertainers, that one being, The Pianist. While depicting the horrors of war on the lives of innocent civilians, it shows the ability of the human spirit to survive and rise above the conflict. It does not condemn or condone war but rather illustrates how music and art speak to the common humanity in all of us. The arts and their practitioners should use their talents to unite not divide the world. A piano teacher.

I am very proud to be an American too! I do not agree with this war. It is wrong! What happened on 09/11 is terrible! No one has proven that Saddam Hussein was behind that terrible event. He is a villainous leader. There are ways of dealing with that. The U.S. going to war when there is no immanent threat is irresponsible. There is a process that the world community can follow and that is through the U.N. As a nation we are tearing apart all that we have worked hard for over 200 years to build. That we are a nation built on principles that honor the best in the human spirit, and honors God. We have transgressed from commonly accepted international norms in trying to help a captive people. Vengeance begets vengeance. Just because we happen to be a super power at this time in history does not give us the right to abuse that power by inflicting our President's will not just upon Saddam and his regime, but upon the whole world community. The so called wisdom of our present administration is not greater than the collective wisdom of the larger world community that we live in and take part in. The cost of this war will be mind boggling. Thanks to this administration, not even 1 penny has been included in next years budget to assist with the rebuilding of Afghanistan after all of our bombings, not to mention that Mr. Bin Laden is still on the loose. I DO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS. I hope you will be just as convinced in calling upon our president, Mr. Bush to be more reasonable with the budget so that our troops will be cared for in a humane way when they return, especially those wounded and in need of health resources. The president will never be able to "support our troops" by giving huge tax breaks to our wealthiest citizens and also care for our "wounded troops" when they will be in need. There will not be enough monies to provide for their care, as is already evidenced by the lack of care for the troops from the last Gulf War. Yes I am proud to be an American, I do support our troops, but I believe that we are fighting a war that is wrong, because we have gone into it without the support of the rest of the world, and with Great Arrogance. This Self-Serving Pride will come back to haunt us. Also in the mean time, watch our taxes go up to pay for all this. And who wins when our taxes go up? The same people who win when oil proffits hit "their" pockets... and it is not our troops nor the average American that will benifit. Period. Peace eventually, . Giancarlo

Hi everyones who are proud to be an America who support Freedom and to believe in God in your own heart and mind. I have always wanted to be a special soldier with special skills behind the enemy line. During the Vietnam era I was drafted and send to Fort Bragg for check up that same day and send home because I was deaf. There has to be a way deaf people can serve their country in today modern warfare. There are stories about deaf people during the civil war,world war I and II who happen to fool the government and came home a hero.There a story about a deaf boy gone hunting for food his family in the Old South and was caught by the Union army and almost hanged because he was a spy.He was saved by a Union captain who happen to known sign language.He proved the boy was deaf. There are stories of deaf people working in factories that was under control by Federal government that make all kind of stuff for our soldiers. Then after the war many were laid off to make room for the soldiers coming home. Then later on as America was becoming a super power during the era of the atomic baby boomers and then the Cold War up to today as to the Information Age still harder for them to get good paid job. They are the forgotten heros..There are so many untold stories how the deaf suffers under Hilter,Stalin,Mao. The Tailban did terrible thing to them. Deaf boys and girls were locked up in one cell and fed broth and were not allowed to have the Bible,etc. This information came from a Baptist missionary. She was not able to tell her story to the United Nation. My question was why keep it so secret? I will not be surprised what the evil dictator of Iraq is doing to them as of today. We must as a Nation get behind our soldiers no matter what political parties you are a member of until victory is won and continue to support Freedom all over the world for all people,races,creeds. I am ashamed of those protestors which make me think of the Vietnam era. They tried to avoid the draft and put shame on the America soldiers as they came home defeated. These people who support the protestors should be arrest and put on giant prison which is an rebuild aircraft carriers and sail the storms of the ocean until they learn to love their country and learn what Freedom is all about plus the cost to protect Freedom. My relatives and cousins have fought for Freedom during the War with the Redcoats under the leadership of George Washington all the to Iwo Jima, the Korea war up to today.What was the cost? It was Freedom they love the most and was a duty to protect it with their mind.body and soul. So please get together in prayers and behind our soldiers all they until Freedom is won.

And instead of criticism, we need to be on our knees praying for our president and leaders, and our military men and women.

SADDAM hUSSEN WILL MEET GOD ONE DAY AND HE WILL GO TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL PAYING FOR IT UNLESS HE IS SAVED. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE ANOTHER PERSONS LIFE. IF SOLDERS GO OVER THERE AND KILL HIM, DO YOU THINK GOD WILL SEE IT ANY DIFFERENT. MAYBE YA'LL REMEMBER THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. BUSH IS NOT GOD, I'M AFRAID HIS FOLLOWING WILL LEAD TO TOTAL DESTURCTION OF THIS COUNTRY. AMERICANS THINK WE ARE HOT SHOTS. WE ARE JUST BIG OL BULLIES IN THE PLAYGROUND. I WONDER WOULD SO MANY AMERICANS BE SO GUNG HO FOR THIS WAR IF THEY WERE HERE FIGHTING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOODS. THE ONES WHO KEEP THROWING UP 9/11 TO EVERY PERSON WHO SAYS SOMETHING AGAINIST THIS SLAUGHTER, I WILL PRAYER THAT GOD GIVES YOU WISDOM... THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH 9/11. THAT WAS ISAMA BIN LADEN. NOT IRAQ, NOT SADDAM HUSSEN.THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. WELL, WHERE ARE THEY ? WE STILL HAVEN'T FOUND THEM HAVE WE ? BUSH HAS PERSONAL REASONS FOR THIS ATTACK, WE ALLL KNOW IT. ITS ALL POLITICS AND SHOWING OFF. THATS WHY THE OTHER COUNTRIES WOUYLD NOT SUPPORT US. IT MAKES NO SENSE. YOU ALL THINK WE ARE FIGHTING FOR 9/11 BUT ITS NOT ABOUT THAT. ITS BUSH AND HIS SO CALLED ADVISORS AND HIS DADDY. TELL ME IF THIS HAS BEEN COMING FOR 13 YEARS THEN WHY WAS THERE NO MENTION OF IT WHEN CLINTON WAS PRESIDENT. BUSH IS EVIL. I PRAY FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE LOST IN HIS WEB OF LIES AND DECEIT. AS FAR AS THE STARS GO, I SEEN ONE COMMENT ABOUT THE QUALILITY OF STARS TODAY THATS CRAP AND YOU KNOW IT. IF ANYTHING THAT ARE MOST RESPECABLE BECAUSE THEY VOICE THERE OPINIONS AND DON'T FOLLOW EVERYONE FOR FEAR OF BEING BOYCOTTED. BUT NO MATTER WHAT I SAY THIS WAR IS HAPPENING AND I REALIZE THAT SO I WILL PRAY FOR EVERY SOUL WHO IS LOST OVER THERE AND FOR ALL THE PEOPLE OVER HERE WHO ARE BEING BRAINWASHED BY THE DEVIL. MOST OF ALL I WILL PRAY FOR THE EVIL PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD THAT GOD WILL JUST TOUCH THEM AND LET THEM BREAK FREE FROM THE DEVIL, THATS OUR DUTY AS CHRISTAINS. IM AMERICAN BUT I WONT DIE FOR A COUNTRY. ISN'T THAT LIKE PUTTING SOMETHING BEFORE GOD. GOD IS NUMBER ONE. WE LIVE FOR HIM NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. NOT OIL, MONEY,COUNTRIES, GOVERMENTS,BUILDINGS OR OTHER PEOPLE WE ARE HERE TO SERVE GOD AND GIVE HIM GLORY SO THAT WHEN WE DIE WE CAN GO AND SPEND ETERNITY WITH HIM IN HEAVEN.

I am probably going to start a different kind of war with my comments, and will probably get shot down in flames, but...here goes. First of all, as a proud Australian, I wholeheartedly support Bush, Blair and Howard in their endeavours, whatever the ulterior motive may be (and believe me, there IS one!) because at the end of it all, one way or another, the most evil man in the world will be gone. I believe this war is really about Money and Power (isn't every war??) and the Iraqies freedom is secondary, but THAT will be the bonus. Is this a case where 'The end justifies the means?' I feel very deep pride, love and sympathy for EVERY single serviceman doing his or her duty, Not just the Americans. Our TV coverage here (SBS, ABC, World News) mentions the Americans almost exclusively, the British sometimes, and the Australians hardly ever. Britian and Australia are relatively small countries when compared with America, but we are giving up our service men and women on the same scale as America, and will suffer the same hardships and losses as you. We have also made our peaceful country a future target for retribution, in only God knows what form, by joining this war. The problems in Iraq and like countries, have been there since forever and I find it hard to believe, that with all the Intelligence forces your great country has available, (spies, undercover agents, satelites etc,) that Saddam Husein and his henchmen, could not have been annihalated without resorting to a full scale war, which will most certainly have repercussions for years to come and divide the world. As far as not watching movies anymore because of a few Hollywood stars comments, I feel that is a childish act (like...if you say something to upset me, then I won't talk to you anymore) but if people feel that is a noble thing to do, then that is their perogative. There are a few absolute bastard actors that I detest, but if the role they play, (and the movie) is a good one...then I will watch it. To me, that is a trivial matter and there are much more important things to be concerned about, and to put our energies into. Have these Hollywood actors, who dared to voice their opinion against yours, said to you, "You don't agree with my opinion, so I don't want you watching my movies." ?? Please, people, put this in it's proper perspective and realise that these actors who have upset you so, are only people with an opinion and a different point of view. EVERYBODY is entitled to that and remember, there are people who can justify a war, and there are people who can't even handle the thought of war in any circumstance. Who's right and who's wrong??? In war, there ARE NO WINNERS and everybody concerned will pay a price. My only hope is that the cost is not too great to bear, and my empathies go to ALL the people who will be left to grieve. The hand that rocks the cradle gets left holding the baby.

Hello, I, too, find these people in the entertainment field abusing their notariety in what could only be called a disgusting display of ignorance and naivete. I served in the military and that in itself doesn't make me an expert either but somethings seem so clear to me that somehow seems to escape the Martin Sheen's and Jessica Lang's of Hollywood. These very people who have in no small way been some of the greatest beneficiaries of our country's freedom somehow can't see beyond themselves enough to realize what this war is all about. The tragic part of it is is that it is a clear as the image they see of themselves in the many mirrors I am sure they often look into each day. It is about credibility. How is God's name could the most powerfull country in the world stand by while this tyrant of all tyrants amasses means by which to destroy any and all who come in his way in his effort to dominate the region, and do so with no regard to anyone and/or anything which threatens him. His personal wealth as well as his murderous way make this man (term used reluctantly) more dangerous to the peace of our world's society than any man alive. Unless he is stopped he, as he has shown in the 24 years of his reign, is capable of anything. To say this is about oil is not untrue. It is about alot of things. It is about caring about all of mankind and the long term ability of us all to live in harmony without feeling any need to hate simply because another believes or looks differently. It is about standing up for right. If nothing else were of concern the simple truth is is that doing the right thing for the Iraqi people would in itself be justification for this sacrifice. As a former soldier I can tell you unequivically that that is the supreme driving force in "fighting on". I am proud beyond proud that our administration and our soldiers do see this and regardless of the vocal 30% we will, with sacrifice, prevail.

I'm just another "average joe" that agrees. I don't like the thought of war, anywhere, but I will support the Pesident, his decisions, and the men and women following orders to insure not only our freedom, but the freedom of those in whose country "we" are fighting. The United States of America is not my "land of birth". I'm a "naturalized citizen", having CHOSEN to reside here and take an oath to be true to the support of USA government, laws, and regulations. It seems, to me, such a shame that the Armed Forces selects the "BEST" young Americans for duty. These selected ones are trained and schooled in life, and warfare, then sent into the most dangerous positions to issure the liberty of those "not accepted by military standards" to stay safely at home, hide their faces behind bandanas, and disrupt life for the rest of us with their "anti-war" demonstrations and civil disobedience. Do I sound like I'm on a soap-box?? YES I am ! and will continue to support our troops and my President, while thwarting the attempts of the so-called "informed, anti-war demonstrators" to change the tide of support to one of disobedient, non-supportive prejudice. I'm with the President, George W Bush, when he asks.. "May God bless America." Thank you for allowing me to use your site to air my opinion. CWB Oregon USA

If you are so proud of your position on the Iraq War, why don't you sign your letter? Your position is not a good one for a free American to write. Many entertainers do support the war--many do not. This morning the former U.S. ambassador to Iraq stated that he did not support the war, and he had many good reasons. Why do you want to stifle people's right to dissent. I happen to be opposed to Saddam's regime, but I listen to the viewpoints of others. Why don't you go to a good movie and enjoy the benefits of entertainment in a free society. Kathleen M. Asher

My opinion is you're either for the United States of America or you're against it. No in between. My son was a Marine in the Gulf War and he served proudly. The actor's that are up there protesting should be ashamed of themselves. If they lived in one of those countries they certainly wouldn't be making 20 million dollars a movie would they? As far as I'm concerned the ones who protest aren't worthy to shine the boots of any of the men and women who are fighting for freedom. Let those who don't like what we are doing buy a one way ticket to anywhere and leave the United States Of America. I'm proud to be an American. If you don't love our country, then LEAVE IT...

I am an American and was married to a military man for over 22 years. I stayed home, with out children, while he went overseas to protect this wonderful country. I agree with boycotting the movie stars that are not acting like Americans, but not boycotting the ones that are supportive, just like us. I also am in favor of turning off any TV news channel that shows protestors, or makes negative comments about America, then e-mail them to say that I will not watch them. This also goes for newspapers like the New York Times, or any others that seem to be in favor of Iraq, or go out of their way to make Americans look bad. I will not buy products from France. We the American people are powerful, and if we ban toether, cannot be beat. If anyone has a list of the movie stars that are verbal idiots, or products from anti-American countries that we should be aware of, I for one, would like to see it.

Thank you for this site. I am a proud American and support President Bush (our truly ELECTED leader), his cabinet, and all our troops who are in harm's way. They are in my thoughts and prayers. I have the memories of a child of WWII, and, later, of Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. I agree, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. We have paid a heavy price for the freedoms we hold so dear in this country. Now some in this country use that freedom of speech to say things I totally disagree with. I often wonder where they could possible get their "mis-information". We have access to the truth in the United States, but we, also, have access to much untruth. Our country is controlled by our President, Congress, and the Courts. The United Nations does not control our internal decisions or our armies. As for the "protestors". when they can lay out a plan to solve the problems of this nation and the world, we can study them and dicard or implement them. Wishing all the ills away without working to eliminate them will not count. Closing our eyes to what is happening down the block and around the world will not count. I am one of the silent majority, a conservative, and a Christian. I friecely defend the right I have to be just that. I reserve the right to pray and to say that I believe in God. I am proud of this country and do not close my eyes to areas where we need improvement. But I will not go to other places and downgrade this great nation. I do not have the podium from which to spread my opinions so I do not have the media listening to my every word. I will accept the consequences of my beliefs, whatever that may be. I fully support the use of military action in this latest cause. I pray that we will rid the world of the monster that is SH and his willing accomplices. We will rebuid Iraq for its citizens. We are not a nation that uses its might to expand our own domain. We are not "bullies", Yes, we have awesome weapons, but we have not used them lightly without thought.

I used to be fairly liberal, but since 9-11, I believe that injustice and evil needs to be stood up to and confronted at times, and this IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES. I am proud to have a leader who has the courage to confront Saddam. Let the celebrities, the French, and the other cowards who believe they love peace more than the rest of us say "Wow--I guess President Bush WAS right" when this is all over and we are all enjoying a safer and more peaceful world.

Right on I am with you 100%. I hope this boycott will make an impact. I had already personally decided to do this anyway so this fits right in with my plans. Hollywood has got to stop the abuse of placing themselves up as knowing more than the general public knows. Their business is entertainment not education. They can have their own personal opinion but it's not my business what they think or feel politically, it is way too personal. Unfortunately we treat celebrity outrageously above most people and that has got to stop too. They are way overpaid, far removed from the real everyday problems most people face and frankly their politics gets them in the paper and before the public eye. Who ever heard of Jeanane Garafalo until lately? Or that Mash actor who rarely works but this sure keeps him in the public eye and mind. It is a two for one for these people. They do not promote family values and as a matter of fact values are laughable to them. Look at how they treated Dan Quayle, just because he stood for "dull" family values and they think it is real easy to go out and have a baby and raise it on their bloated salary. I know in my small town there are so many unwed mothers bewildered, uneducated and living with a different man every year because they can not make it on 7.00 an hour, that is if they do work. That is reality and the movies and the stars make it look so glamorous and push the "see you can have it all attitude". The "stars" lovingly embraced and still do Bill Clinton....go figure? I'm getting off the track but it is time to get these stars in hand and start showing them a good dose of reality. It is time to support our troops and our wonderful country. Sign me PUMPKIN

You said it beautifully! These stars think basically of their own beauty, and entertainment to line their money pockets. They have no more knowledge than the rest of us. I am so thankful that we have a Christian leader. I stand behind him 100%. I am so thankful that I wasn't born in Iraq, and I pray for those who were. They are human just like us, however many have had their minds poluted by a so called leader who has shown us over and over again that he thinks ONLY of himself. He threatens the lives of his own close followers. He lets the people starve while he has a palace-no, many palaces of great expence. He is a great coward who has to live well below the earth for his own protection. Just how blinf mentally one must be to see those people need help to get rid of this sick man and his followers. How will he feel when this man trys to let germ warfare loose over their own heads. Or feel the distruction of their own bodies when he trys to take over our minds. It is our boys who are fighting for our freedom who are the real stars. They so willingly chose to protect America. May God bless them and their families who are heartbroken for them.

Many of the Hollywood crowd are poorly educated or at the very least badly misinformed. They have low or no moral values. They have no answers just complaints. They are over paid and full of self importance. No reason for them to stay in a country that they so loath. France might be a good place for them. I rarely go to a movie more than a couple times a year. The movies they offer to the public are trash anyway. It will be easy to stop attending the movie theaters. Their loathing of this great country is more than likely a mirror of what they think of themselves.

I would suggest that a way to do that is to make a list of people and their comments from the film industry. That way we can make our own decisions.

Steven Becca, You should be ashamed of your selfs. The economy is in a bad enough state right now, and you want to boycott a money making business like the movie industry. Boycotting the movie industry is not the answer. So a few people express thier opinions, that don't mean all actors are alike. We American are the most fortuante people in the world. We have never seen war on our land for many years. If it had not been for our fighting men, under who's rule would we be under today. The movie industry kept us moving in WWII, and it maybe our only hope for the furture economy. There are enough people out of work now.

Amen to you for doing something about this problem. I too am very angry about the so called "star's" giving their opinions on TV and other media. Who do they think they are? Just because the people around them tell them they are so great that doesn't make them great. They are cowards as far as I'm concerned. How many of them have you seen on the battle front? What do they know about the real life we American's live? How soon they forget and get caught up in the Hollywood brainwashing. I think they all need a good dose of reality and that is that we made them and we can break them. And I for one am willing to do my part, which means no going to the movies or renting movies and no pay-per-view movies. It may take awhile for them to notice, but they'll get the message. It's time for the real people to stand up and be counted. Why do we just sit by and let the lunatics speak this foolishness??? It's time they were put in their places. The real stars are the ones out there risking their lives and making the hard decisions. May God Bless America!

Amen...to all you said. We have made this country the way it is and everyone does have a right to their own opinion, but it does not give that person the right to infringe on the rights or others. Such as laying in the street which stops the working man/woman from using their independant rights to work for a living. They cause dollars to be used to pay the police to keep the order, when the police could be stopping a crime. I think the only people who DO NOT have the rights that these people want to exploit are the Christians and the un-born babies. The same ones that are saving the "whales" and any other planned activists activities are the same people who have fought to destroy human life of the un-borns who never get the chance to even know about the rights that their ansestors fought and died to protect.

We agree with you 100%. We just sent it to the people in our address book. Is there any way that we can send a message to Jessica Lange? When we heard how she said she's "ashamed to be an American", we would like to let her know that we're ashamed that she's an American also. We rarely go to a movie anyway so it's no problem to completely boycott them. We hate to hear {and we know you're right} that, unfortunately, our young people ARE influenced by the Hollywood UNINFORMED and UNPATRIOTIC. Jack & Jean

I have not frequented the movie theators for many years, let alone months, and I don't intend to visit them now. But to have a similar impact I will refrain from watching Television Productions that originate in Holywood. I will pray for our country, for our President, for our Sons and Daughters in military uniform and for our Christian Community who will continue to support the cause of freedom.

Not just a few months of boycott. Along, long time would be better-- like indefinitely!! Will someone give us a list of entertainers in Hollywood, New York and else where so we can boycott their work in movies, TV shows, theatre, and the products they advertise. If we are gonna do it--let's do it effectively. I can survive very well if I never see their faces nor hear their voices again. A strike at the obscene amount of money they get for advertizing a product they represent would hit them in the pocket books. Joe

The virulent protesters are like the ostrich, the ostrich would sooner bury its head in the sand than look reality in its face. One wonders how long would the protesters (war) protest if no video equipment were present. Speaking of Hollywood, one wonders how much of their concern is genuine Christian compassion, or is there's a hidden anti-american type agenda. It amazes me how one can openly embrace the likes of Saddam and terrorists, and have such a extreme hatred of the current administration of the U.S. As a former veteran myself I would urge those who would always blame America(U.S) first to exercise one of your basic freedoms, leave go over and join Al Queda or Saddam, or Arafat. Put your words into action, don't hide behind the freedoms porchased at high cost by our forefathers. If you are convinced the grass is greener on the other side by all means leave. Talk and protesting is cheap, its time to get a life you leftist liberal weenies stick to your convictions go , go and fight the capitalist infidels, but not from the comfort of air conditioning and central heating and never being thirsty or hungry. You make me sick, you anti-american elitist scum , pursue the 70 virgin thing, just get the hell out of the country I love!

I for one am not going to the movies & will not watch West Wing or any other TV program that stars anyone who has expressed an anti-American sentiment. Yes, they do have a right to their opinion, but when it's anti American, let them keep it to themselves. Jimmy Carter & Bill clinton can keep their anti-American thoughts to themselves also. They are both in my opinion a disgrace to the high office they previously held. They have made me change my mind, & at present, I don't think I will ever support another Democrat again. The Democrat Party, & yes, it's Democrat party, they are not Democratics, seem ever bent on destroying this country from the inside. We need that oil in Alaska & they keep blocking it. Everything that is right, that our present, good President wants to do to clean up the mess they & the Clintons have made with their lack of policy, the Democrats try to block. Let us add them to the boycott list too. Sara Clark Sipsey, Alabama

I donot support this war. This is the Presidents personal vendetta against Iraq because of his dad QUOTE "THAT MAN TRIED TO KILL MY FATHER" as he said on television. It is also about oil where I live the price of gas has gone down in about 30 cents in the past week. I would like to see the presidents daughters and niece enlist ( If they are able to pass the physical) How about having the children of the congressmen and senators enlist. I am sorry (NO I'M NOT) I do support our CHILDREN who are fighting and may God keep them safe and watch over them and give comfort to their parents and family But I DO NOT SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENTS WAR By the way my son is planning to join thte Marine Corp.

I am of the opinion that it would be a great thing to load all of these so-called "entertainers",that are filling the media with their communistic,liberal democrat agenda,onto a C-130 cargo plane,with a parachute and 3 days ration of food and water, and drop the anti-American S.O.B.'s over Iraq and Afghanistan.Let them glide on down to their friends with our missles and bombs,where they will ,no doubt, be welcomed with open arms.There they will be happy forever.Does that sound like a dream world?? It does to me ,too.......but that is where their heads are anyway.Maybe the torture will awaken them before they take a 7.62X39 round in the back of the head.The high from all the cocaine and other illegal drugs they use probably will not have worn off yet,so they may not fully realize what has happened ,so, I guess we should send them to Betty Ford Rehab first ,so, they will be sober enough to understand their fate.Damn the Jane Fonda clones!..............On a brighter note ,I took my dixie chicks CD's to my target range and used them for target practice!! NEVER, will I buy another of their products.I urge all my good friends in Tejas to do the same.Its time we show these treacherous bastards that we support our great Country and our great President,AND OUR BOYS & GIRLS IN UNIFORM, and NOT them and their foul orations.....Very Sincerely,"Doc" in occupied Virginia

I don'thave any problem not going to the movies. There is little out there that is decent to watch anyway. I agree that our so-called celebs need to keep their opinions to themselves. What they don't understand is that instead of using their influence to express negative opinions, they should be supporting our troops and could use their voices to foster more patriotism than they do. It was refreshing to see the clip of Michael Moore being booed during the Academy Awards. Just as we can't lump all people into a singular category, we must remember there are those like Fred Thompson, Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Rick Schroeder and others who support these United States.

I support your cry for our soldiers to be supported by boycotting movies. I stopped going to movies during Viet Nam years. We had the same caliber of so called stars then. Since then, we have allowed their filth to be presented in the name of art. They have poisoned our morals and values for years. Why would they not think they have the right to now poison our minds against our soldiers? I have not been to the movies in all of these years and I don't feel I'm missing a thing. I will not pay money to support an industry that is set on undermining our morals, our faith and our country.

We can "boycott" anything or anybody in this country, because it is part of our national heritage and right to free speech. I think many people are looking for ways to alleviate their pain, frustrations, and mixed emotions over this war, but finger pointing and taking sides will do more harm to our country than good. We need to pray to God and ask Him to help our people as a nation to unite, and forgive us our sins and try to love our fellow man as ourselves. Prayer is a powerful tool and much more effective than marching in the streets with placards, or boycotting, or whatever else, for or against this conflict! Let's stop the strife here in our own country, and let it begin with each of us. God help us all and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

These actors and actresses need to clean up there acts befor they speak out against President Bush and the war in Iraq. We have not attended movies for several for several years. There is no need for nudity, there is no need for the foul language, there is no need for the violence. These actors and actresses are a big part of the problem with todays world. Why weren't they protesting Bill Clinton when he was lying and to the world about those terrible immoral things that he did to women that were working with him. Where is Charlton Heston and his National Rifle Association. Why aren't they protesting against the judges in California in regards to the atheist that has gone to court to have "God Bless America" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance (I think that is what it was). Our forefathers fought and gave their lives for all of us so that we could have the rights that we have now such as freedom of speech. We do not want them to have given their lives in vain. I Pray for President Bush and his advisors that God will direct them to do His will. I am also praying for the soldiers and their families. I am praying for my own family an loved ones that are involved in the war. I pray for the Iraqi people. I pray a quick resolution to this war. The Iraqi people need to be freed. Thank You.

I am in complete agreement regarding the boycotting of movies made by traitorous and ill-informed so-called 'actors'. These idiots have too much money and are able to 'sit out' the retaliation of the majority of people who are prepared to accept the need to rid our planet of terrorists, and people who would have us live in constant fear. We in Australia have our fair share of malcontents, whose only aim in life is to have their names in the newspapers, regardless of their true feelings. They posture in front of the news cameras, and think it's great to be seen on the local news! They are so full of conceit, they fail to realise, or don't care, what effect they have on the younger people of the country which provides them with a comfortable living. We are duty bound to show these idiots that their comments and so-called opinions are neither needed, nor appreciated. If they are so keen to see our servicemen and women walk out on a country which is governed by a mad dictator, then let them go over to Iraq and find out for themselves what it's like to live in perpetual fear. I am proud that my Government is a part of the 'coalition of the willing', and with God's help and protection, we will rid the world of a regime that does not believe in God, and will do its utmost to persecute those who do. May God Bless America, and those countries who have joined them in the fight for a decent, free and happy world in which to bring up our families. Norm.

This country was fought for by people who desired freedom for all. They gave their lives years ago and today also so that we may be free. Our president desires that for the Iraq nation. For people (not in the know) to criticize and condemn what our president is leading us in (this war)so that their freedom and ultimately OUR FREEDOM will be safeguarded and protected is wrong. Everyone should stand together and support our troops who are willing to stand fast for what is right. Instead of condemning as some of our actors/actresses have, we all need to ask God to give our leaders the wisdom to make the right choices and also in our personal lives. May God bless the USA and the troops who are willing to die so that we may continue to be free. Again, let us support instead of criticize. I love America and thank God for the people who are willing to give their lives for this freedom that we share. Have we forgotten what happened on 911 so quickly? You say what can I do?

I wonder if the Hollywood people would feel the same if they had a loved one living inside Iraq? If they had a son, daughter, mother, father or any other relative living under such conditions. Would Hollywood feel any different if they had a bunch of Movie Stars shot in the head by Saddam and their bodies shown world wide on television. Or maybe their bodies were found in a shallow grave out in the dessert and the bodies were mutelated. What if their daughters were taken from them and raped and tortured, their sons were taken from their homes and made to fight the Americans by gun point. And lets quit calling the so called "suicide" Bombers, SUICIDE BOMBERS, they are HOMICIDE BOMBERS_. Homicide Bombers, Homicide Bombers, Homicide Bombers, They kill other_ people that is a HOMICIDE not suicide. Now if they go out and just blow themselves up and no one else that is SUICIDE. Think, REPORTERS, there is a difference between suicide and homicide and these are HOMICIDE BOMBERS, MURDERERS. Say a prayer and think of those who have already given their lives to stop a man who if we didn't stop now_ within a few years would be killing Millions instead of thousands.

I note that some of the Hollywood clowns are spewing their garbage, not only on the screen, but also on the airwaves throughout the nation. They call for an end to war, yet make movies depicting "their version" of what war is all about. They state how they can't stand our President, as , according to a number of these ill-informed radical Marxist and/or Socialist movie "star" agitators, he was not "their" choice. They knock and vilify our troops, calling them "baby killers" and sometimes worse, berating them for fighting for freedom, whilst they sit in their ivory towers, equipped with every modern convenience, and decry that we conservatives are giving tax-breaks to the wealth: A class in which they reside, in luxury, with egos as high as a mountain. And yes, also harboring all the money they could want. Meanwhile, after spitting in the face of we veterans. We former soldiers/sailors who made it possible for them to retire to their lavish surrounding, after a hard days protest, bear the brunt of their austere hate. A expression of disapproval against our wanting to save the Iraqi people from Saddam and his regime of terror and death. Moreover, they wonder why we veterans will now have nothing to do with the tinseltown rhetoric; this "LaLaLand" nonsense. We watch these people cavort; slink across a stage wearing clothing that would cost this writer a month's pay, and they tell us that they are all for the poor. Stuff and nonsense! These modern actors, having proved their disdain for our troops and our President, knowing nothing of battle, want us to be like them, think like them, and (God forbid) act like them, while, in turn, they set a bad example for all to see, leaving much decency to be desired. Period! These protestors, this 30% of the citizenry, take it upon themselves to comdemn the rights of others to object to their socialistic garbage, in which they keep saying that peace is the only way; wherein there is no peace, until these terrorist, like Saddam and Bin Laden are all removed. Meanwhile, I mourn the days when the majority of the entertainer were realistic, patriotic, and yes, like me, were veterans -- some even going so far as to serve in war -- some even serving in combat. They didn't get-up on a soapbox and spew mendacious innuendoes. They rolled-up their sleeves and pitched in. They were American's first; entertainers second. No, I will not, nor have I watched or attended any movies enacted by this crowd of traitors. Still, not all are inclusive, there are a few actors that still believe in this country. They and they alone are worth my money or the coins the people who have paid their way to see these patriots perform. It is all too sad that the crybabies are in the majority in Hollywood. Until, that is rectified, my money is best utilized elsewhere, like helping our brave troops. J.C. Carney, Esq. Freelance Nautical Writer

I like you, don't like war, WHO DOES, our president doesn't like war, neither do I like the way our president is being critized. I believe President Bush along with his advisors know alot more, MUCH MORE, than these people that are standing up to critize him. If they knew what the President knows, they would probably run and hide. They will never know what he knows, whick is a good thing. I believe our Country is worth fighting for, our FREEDOM is worth so much to me. I believe our President is a good Christian man that is trusting God to lead and guide him. Now if only the ones that are protesting and critizing the President, would get to know who God is and get on their knees and find out who GOD is and what he is about, how much better our country would be. I say: GOD BLESS AMERICA as well as help President Bush and leaders, as well as our troops. This Family believes in them!!!!!

After reading many of the comments of others on this web site I totally agree that the "unamerican hollywood few" need to keep their mouths shut when their agenda is trying to sway public opinion. But the real problem lays with americans themselves. To coin a phrase, the "dumbing down of america" has removed history, geography (many of todays students probably don't know where Iraq is)from school requirements. We have let the media, commerical ads, and liberal programs to mold the viewers into their way of thinking. (Martin Sheen is NOT the president of the US.) I have quit viewing certian entertainers (Richard Gere, Martin Sheen, Sean Penn, and George Clooney to name a few. We need to get the word out to them. Entertaining is entertaining, war is hell but sometimes necessary. USAF Retired, Vietnam Vet.

Amen to what you say regarding the relatively few so called entertainers who are actually doing fifth column work FOR the worst enemy we have ever encountered... Their abuse of "rights of free speech" goes well beyond that which is considered proper and acceptable for most Americans. I personally consider people such as Sean Penn to be enemies of the country and consider him a traitor . As for Barbara Streisand Well, consider the source and ignore the person. Neither of them deserve to share the air with those who serve our country in this time of crisis. Who the sam hill do they think they are ? someone important? not to me at least. yes I will boycott the movies til something tangible is done about these people.

I am proud to be an American also. I am ashamed of the way some people talk about our leaders. They are doing what is necessary to keep this country free. I was with the service during the "Cold War". You can call it cold if you please, but take it from one who knows there was nothing cold about it. Of course the Russians and the French don't want to join us. The reason being they would have to admit they are selling arms and weapons of mass destruction to Iraq and all the other terrorist nations. That's how they are making money to keep thier countries going. Take all the protesters and put them in a plane and send them over there. Let's see how long they last. They have never had to live like thoes people do or had terror strike them. I'm certain if they had to endure what the people of 9-11 had to they would change thier tunes real quick.

I am a part of the silent majority which is a group who are getting smaller every year. But at curtial times in our history, we have let you all know that we love our county by getting out an voting!! I am 75 years of age and have voted in every election since I became of age. I love my beautiful country and resent very much what these apparently ignorgrant uninformed people from Hollywood which includes all types of perverts. I was taught we are to obey the laws of our land and respect those who have authority over us. I am a mother, grandmother and aunt as well as a cousin. My husband and many relatives have served in the armed forces. I had ancestors who served in the Revolutionar War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Korean War, the Vitet nam and now have nephew in this war. None of us like War but apparently other countries LOVE war. Have these so called "Stars" so soon forgotten what happened in our beloved country on 9_11? I am ashamed of all of you who take advantage to everything this great country has provided for you. In fact, you disgust me no end. SHAME, SHAME ON ALL OF YOU!! I dont' like war but someone need to do something and since our president has decided to do something, we need to at least keep our mouths shut and support our dear service people who are not hiding behind their super egoes but are doing what they have been called to do. You will not get another dime from me if I can help it. If you don't like what is going on here right now, you can get a one way ticket and find another land that is not involved in a war and stay there if you can find one. AGAIN, SHAME, SHAME ON ALL OR YOU WHO CAN NOT THINK FOR YOURSELVES BUT ARE ACTING LIKE BRAINLESS IDOTS AS YOU TAKE TO THE STREET TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR IGNORANCE.

When I saw Martin Sheen with tape over his mouth this week and almost screamed at the TV. Why do they think they know more then the people in Washington as to what is going on. Received an email today from an Iraqi Dr. who has treated the people in Iraq who dared to voice his opinion against Saddam and wish I could send it to those so called Americans in Hollywood.

I want to say that I pray almost constantly for our troops in Iraq. I can't imagine the fear and uncertainty they must feel. I have an uncle right now battling cancer in part from having been sprayed with Agent Orange in Viet Nam. He was never the same after his two-term stay there. I grew up with an absent father and he was like the father I never had in many ways. When he came home from Viet Nam, he regularly ran screaming through the night in terror as a result of his experiences. (There are too many residual effects of the war to list here)He has never been the same loving, cuddling man I knew. He had a really difficult time reconciling killing people and the values he grew up with that taught him "Thou Shalt Not Kill". He was determined to serve our country though, and went on two tours of Viet Nam so his brother wouldn't have to go. At that time only one member of a family served at any given time. I oppose this war with Iraq. I feel that in this day and age there must be a better way. I oppose it for patriotic reasons. I don't want our troops to have horrible things happen to them. It is your choice whether or not to listen to Hollywood. People ike me have NO choice in this matter of war and are considered "Unpatriotic" if we don't agree with the president. I am for the "Peace that passeth all understanding." I pray vigilantly that No One involved with the war will be harmed but I know that can't be. War is by definition a KILLER. Let us pray for true love of our fellow man. "Hollywood" is the least of our concerns. Our troops are fighting for the right to be free.

Thank you for doing this, I am one of the silent majority, but I do get mad when people aren't patriotic. We should all support our country whether you feel this war is a mistake or not. The servicemen aren't asked to vote on if they want to fight or not They just DO IT!! They do it for us, so we have the right to think and say what we feel. As a STAR you have a responsibility to not use your influence "against" your country. If you are for the other side, be sure what it's like before you MOVE there.I've enjoyed reading what others think.

Thank you so much for speaking out against the EVIL of Hollywood. Yes, freedom of speech is for everyone BUT everyone does not have the platform they have - to reach thousands and thousands of people by speaking into a microphone. Having that kind of clout should carry with it the responsibility to be informed - they neither read, stay informed, nor have the intellect to understand. That makes what they say every unequal to what you or I may have to say. Everyone time they speak it influences millions - especially our children. They should NOT have the freedom to speak from a platform that denigrates our country, our president, our Christian faith and our children. They can speak to others like we do -- but not use their popularity, money, charm, on the platform before the whole world. They are so anti-God, anti-America, anti-bush and pro-evil it is sickening and revolting and terrifying!! Jan in Missouri

In this country we have the right to disagree... but once the decision is made, we must support those whose job it is to carry out the decision!!

I fully agree with this project. However, I must add that all of our entertainers are not of the Hollywood genre. If you still feel the need for quality, family, patriotic entertainment I suggest that a trip to Branson, Missouri is in order. Every show there offers a tribute to our armed forces,past,present and future. I know because I've been there every year since 1987 (sometimes twice) and that accounts for some 125+ shows.

I believe it is time for all Americans to support our troops. They have not asked to be put there but they proudly will do the job that they have been sent to do. Each day they are putting their lives on the line for YOU, so that YOU can still live in a land of the free and not only for us but for people everywhere. We belive in freedom in our land and applaud our troops for believing in American enough to put their lives on the line. It's about time we ALL get behind our troops and support them. We may not believe in war (and neither do I) but I certainly will support our troops no matter what. They keep my freedom too! - G Tuttle, NY

i prefer big charlie's take on the sitchiation: "Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to the Hollywood Bunch" OK -- Let's just say for a moment you bunch of pampered, overpaid, unrealistic children had your way and the USA didn't go into Iraq. Let's say that you really get your way and we destroy all our nuclear weapons and stick daisies in our gun barrels and sit around with some white wine and cheese and pat ourselves on the back, so proud of what we've done for world peace. Let's say that we cut the military budget to just enough to keep the National Guard on hand to help out with floods and fires. Let's say that we close down our military bases all over the world and bring the troops home, increase our foreign aid and drop all the trade sanctions against everybody. I suppose that in your fantasy world this would create a utopian world where everybody would live in peace. After all, the great monster, the United States of America, the cause of all the world's trouble would have disbanded it's horrible military and certainly all the other countries of the world would follow suit. After all, they only arm themselves to defend their countries from the mean old USA Why you bunch of pitiful, hypocritical, idiotic, spoiled mugwumps. Get your head out of the sand and smell the Trade Towers burning. Do you think that a trip to Iraq by Sean Penn did anything but encourage a wanton murderer to think that the people of the USA didn't have the nerve or the guts to fight him? Barbara Streisand's fanatical and hateful rankings about George Bush makes about as much sense as Michael Jackson hanging a baby over a railing. You people need to get out of Hollywood once in a while and get out into the real world. You'd be surprised at the hostility you would find out here. Stop in at a truck stop and tell an overworked, long distance truck driver that you don't think Saddam Hussein is doing anything wrong. Tell a farmer with a couple of sons in the military that you think the United States has no right to defend itself. Go down to Baxley, Georgia and hold an antiwar rally and see what the folks down there think about you. You people are some of the most disgusting examples of a waste of protoplasm I've ever had the displeasure to hear about. Sean Penn, you're a traitor to the United States of America. You gave aid and comfort to the enemy. How many American lives will your little, "fact finding trip" to Iraq cost? You encouraged Saddam to think that we didn't have the stomach for war. You people protect one of the most evil men on the face of this earth and won't lift a finger to save the life of an unborn baby. Freedom of choice you say? Well I'm going to exercise some freedom of choice of my own. If I see any of your names on a marquee, I'm going to boycott the movie. I will completely stop going to movies if I have to. In most cases it certainly wouldn't be much of a loss. You scoff at our military whose boots you're not even worthy to shine. They go to battle and risk their lives so ingrates like you can live in luxury. The day of reckoning is coming when you will be faced with the undeniable truth that the war against Saddam Hussein is the war on terrorism. America is in imminent danger. You're either for her or against her. There is no middle ground. I think we all know where you stand. What do you think? God Bless America!

Hollywood itself needs soul-searching. If we boycott Hollywood, the message should also include, enough violence, sex, and degragational societal stories. It is interesting to note, these same anti-war celebrities will make movies about these events and cash in on big money. Does their anti-war sentiments stop them from collecting money to allow them to spend and live freely? War is necessary, although not wanted, to ensure freedom. Freedom is what those liberals are crying for. If they don't like this country they should leave it. They have clearly abused their "celebrity status".

I totally agree with this statement. We need to stand tall and support our troups and to sympathize with the family of loved ones who are fighting for our freedoom and stop abusing the so called power that these people (Hollywood)think that they are any better informed then the average American citizen. We need our police to be protecting us from harms way and not fighting and arresting people at this time because they do not know how to behave during this terrible time. The police should be there to be on alert to protect us and not have to put up with foolishness and abuse. We should show respect and not disrespect during this time. I am not in favor of war but we are now involved and it is time for us to unite and stop all the foolishness and say a prayer that everyone involved comes home safely.

thank you for giving us the opportunity to voice our opinions and to do something about them. I agree that our government is doing what needs to be done to rid our world of Suddam. Even if one does not agree. with the stand that the US is taking, once our troops have committed their lives to defend our country and to free the Araqie people, is it up to us to support our troops to this cause. I think it is unforgivable to be a war protestory and not suppose our troops, I think we should all boygot the movies and also tv and i plan to do both.

Though your comments may have some merit, I would like to say that what Hollywood shows to our "children" is ultimately up to us. Does your television not have an off button? We seem to all too often to place blame elsewhere when we have choices,to watch a program, a movies or even the news.Or not..., and yes it is great that we have the option of our "own opinion". Great changes always happen because of the ones who are not afraid to stand up to popular opinion, usually held by those too uninformed or too "busy' or just too lazy to form their own ideas and/or ideals. I am glad to be an american, I support and pray for the men and women who are fighting on faraway soil, but I still reserve the right to protest that war does nothing that can't be accomplished in other ways. How many centuries, eons, or millions of lifetimes, will it take before we finally learn that anger breeds anger, contempt breeds contempt, violence breeds violence,Respect is not won by force, but by mutual respect.

My husband served in the Marines for 21 years and had three tours in Viet Nam and won a battlefield commission. So we have seen alot of times alone serving this country so they can have freedom but I don`t think they are even educated to realize their freedom; Praise the Lord more of us Love this Country and Flag and we still will fight for our freedom from another country. Everyone should live alittle away from America then they would see how lonely it gets when there is no one there to protect them except the Embassy or your own family. I will not be attending any movies or any stage shows until oour troops are safe; my family is large 15 bothers and sisters and their familiesfamilies are all large alot have 5 generations so I will also be talking and sending them this note , So hollywood Beware!!!

Recently I heard an interview on Fox News with Winston Churchill's grandson. He told how his grandfather had tried to warn the Allies about the dangers that Hitler was presenting but no one listened. We all know the havoc he caused for so many. Hitler thought the German people were the master race and no one else counted. Doesn't Saddam think in paralell? I cannot imagine anyone wanting war. However, history has dictated that extreme measures sometime must be taken. I visited the war memorial at Normandy a few years ago and was amazed at the effor America gave to free France. It's one thing to read about it - it is quite another to "see" it. I left there in tears and cannot understand why the French has so soon forgotten. I am so grateful for the men and women that will serve to protect us and pray for them continually as well as our president and other leaders who are acting with far more information than I have. I do support them and our troops, and though we are blessed with freedom of speech, we also must realize it is coupled with responsibility and not use it in a harmful way. I speak from a heart that loves my fellow man, and the heart of a mother: my son left today for the middle east. Please lets use our money and engergy in an honorable way - I can very easily forego movies. Thank you very much. Jean, NH

I agree with you about the opinions of the movie stars. They do have freedom of speach. Now if they had rather be in Iraq where they don't have that, they are free to try to go there. They need to watch out though and not wave at an American or they might be executed. If movie stars cared about the welfare of our country, they not agree to making PG and R rated movies. I have had a hard time finding decent ones to watch and now I will not have to waste my time. God Bless and protect our troops while they are fighting and giving their lives for the movie stars and all the other countries who are sitting back and will reap the benefits. These movie stars picked the wrong thing to get attention. I pray for wisdom and protection of our President and all others who are fighting and making decisions about this war. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I have no one overseas, but my sister was in building 4 on 9/11/ and one of my baby brothers is a Port Authority Police Officer, who only by the grace of God was safe. His fellow academy cadet(29 years old) was killed. No One wants war, but no one wants to live the rest of thier lives in fear of when, not if the nex attack comes. Hollywodd and the ones like them are so used to just taking, they forget that sometimes you have to give back. America motto is LAND OF THE FREE (Which the hollywood crowd seems to have down real well, but part 2 is HOME OF THE BRAVE - Maybe hollywood and the like can take a step or two back, go below skin deep answers and support our men and woman.

I am a decorated veteran of the Viet Nam war and a retiree of the US military. Thank you for your thoughts. I believe that we need to stop the terrorists before they have an another opportunity to inflict any damage on us. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and several other countries harbor and assist these terrorist organizations. I have no illusions that this war will stop these countries from assisting these people, but it might give them pause to think that there is country in this world with a leader that has the committment to stand up for the human rights of all the people in this world. We will find you and we will exact a punishment on you that will alter your behavior. I do not like war, but this is a just cause and should be supported by all Americans and people who love living free. I love to watch movies and, up to a few days ago, had a very extensive library of VHS movies. I have now gone through these movies and burned those that have Ed Asner, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange, Mike Farrell, Tim Robbins, Sara Jessica Parker, Jennifer Anniston, etc. I have decided that I can better use the funds that I once spent on acquiring these movies to better serve my own needs. Hopefully, our voices will be heard by the entertainment community. These people who think they are better educated about world affairs than the average American citizen should start looking for a day job.

I'm a proud Canadian, and a Christian. I wish that we (USA & Canada & others) had finished the job in Iraq last time, and maybe we would not be in this mess now. I pray daily for the brave service men & women from the USA, UK, Australia & wherever else (I know some Canadians are serving with some of these units, although we are not officially in the war itself). I pray also for the innocent civilians who suffer and even for the misguided (brainwashed?) civilians who resist. I would like to believe that it is a war to "liberate" the Iraqis, but I just can't swallow that one. I've been a teacher of English to immigrants in Canada for about 30 years, and have had about a dozen Iraqis in my classes in that time. Not one of them has been a supporter of Saddam, and most of them have been tortured by his goons. The monster scares me, as Hitler scared the world in the 1930s and 1940s. This brings me to the Canadian position in this war. I am glad that our prime minister has decided not to officially declare war, because there are serious doubts about the validity of it. The United Nations did not sanction it, otherwise we would be there with you this time as we were last time. Our support now is one of prayer and friendship--such as we gave the 40,000 Americans who sought refuge on our soil when planes could not land in the USA on September 11, 2001, and so landed here and were welcomed without question into our very homes. The US ambassador to Canada said a few days ago that if Canada were at war, the Americans would back us without question. However, if that is true, how is it that from September 1939 to December 1941, Canadians were busy fighting in Europe, along with many other allied countries, fighting for the freedom that the Americans claim to enjoy. (Yet, you oppose anyone who dares to exercise the freedom of speech--just because they disagree with you. What is the point of defending a right if no one may exercise that right?) Many churches (my own included) oppose this war because they say it does not meet established criteria of a "just war". I am an Anglican (that's Episcopalian in the USA),Boycott movies? Well, as you've pointed out, most Hollywood movies aren't worth seeing anyway. But I won't boycott them. I don't go often enough for them to notice whether I go or not. Besides, I'll defend to the death their right to exercise freedom of speech--obviously not a freedom being defended by Americans these days. Diane Jones, Vancouver, Canada

I agree totally! If we don't stop this dictator, how far will he go? He has already made attacks on American soil, so how far will he go if we don't do something? The only reason we have the freedoms we have in America today is because my father and many other men and women were willing to risk their lives, many giving their lives, so that we can have them. This has always been the price of freedom. But the fact is...our people are over there risking their lives, and whether people in America believe we should be there or not, they should still support our soldiers. They are the ones making the sacrifice (and their families)--the least we can do is stand behind them!!! I very seldom go to the theatre, but I'll make sure I don't now! Donna B. Lakeland, FL

Thank You for the inspirational web site. I hope others take time to sit down and read this site. I am a Navy researvist and I find it very upsetting to see crowds of people putting down the country I have gave my blood, sweat, and tears for. I will continue to defend the USA with a full heart. Even if all of Hollywood doesn't appriciate thier own freedom. I may not always agree with our elected officials, however they have been put into powerful positions by a majority of votes. Votes that aren't even counted in other countries. We need to have more people to stand up for what is right and fair in the world. LET'S ALL STAND BEHIND OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM THAT ARE DEFINDING OUR FREEDOM.

I did not support our President on his decision to go to war. However, now that our country is engaged in a full scale war, I support our country and our troops 100 percent. I will show my dislike for our President's position next election as I would hope others would do. That is what democracy is about. If we do not rally around our country now and stand as a united front, then we do not deserve the freedom that makes our country so unique. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to share our thoughts. One voice from the Ozarks. Bobbi Brown

Why don't all you whiners take your own advice and go over there and experience the suffering of the Iraqi people by this country's disgraceful action."

Let us definitely support the troops. I for one would have a difficult time risking my life to get shot at, even if for a just cause. However, this was is NOT NECESSARY. Let us quit fooling ourselves: diplomacy had a chance to work, and it was Bush and Crew who wanted war. Please kindly remember that Bush was AWOL when it came time to serve, Cheney weazeled out on a 'medical' excuse. If you have a hemmorhoid, you can still handle a gun. The poor soldiers on the front line risking their lives do need our support and our prayers: the ones that started this unnecessary and illegal war need to be impeached for violation of the COnstitution. We have Americans dying and being wounded, somefor the rest of their lives for a just cause, except their deployment over there is a violataion of our Constitution (yes, yes, the one Bush swore to 'preserve, protect and defend'- remember?). Let us pray for those who will die and will be terribly wounded and incapacitated. Let us pray that those that come back get a better reception from this Bush than those that came back after Gulf I got from the other Bush. And let us do a little bit more thinking and let us be a little bit less emotional following the 'Commander-in-Thief' like a bunch of lemmings. Bush was supposed to restore 'honor and integrity' to the White house: this has certainly NOT happened. All he (and the Republican Congress) has succeded in doing is eliminating the Surplus (remember, the Democrats were dead against the tax cut and they said all along that there was NO $10 Trillion surplus- yes, the concept that the Republicans used to justify the tax cut). He also succeeded in increasing the National debt (in effect a tax INCREASE on our children and their children). He has succeded in eliminating a bunch of our civil liberties and freedoms (yes, those that our brave armed forces are presumably fighting for overseas)- think Patriot Act, and the one they are currently circulating as a suppleement to that (aka Patriot Act 2). These are pieces of legislation that make our private medical records public, increase spying on the internet, all sorts of information gathering tricks on the [mostly] innocent and unsuspecting majority of Americans. Please note carefully that they HAD all of the information they needed to prevent the WTC attacks, they simply did not analyze it... Please note that Reagan and Bush the Greater armed Saddam Hussein in the 80's and early 90's. Please note that the first major terrorist attack against American occurred in Lebanon on Reagans watch. This was the one that started it all. Please note that Reagan armed Osama bin Laden in his war against the evil Soviet empire in the 80's. Please note that when Bush the Elder beat Michael Dukakis, Patriotism was used as a rallying cry... The whole 'Pleadge of Allegence' issue, and the Willie Horton scandal (even though Dukakis PERSONALLY had nothing to do with Willie Horton). Please note that as soon as Bush the Elder was sworn in as the ELECTED president, he all of a sudden forgot all about Patriotism, and the Pledge of Allegence was never mentioned by him again... The Republicans are the ones that want to limit medical malpractice because it drives up medical premiums, but if those of you who actually pay for health insurance noticed, it is your premiums that are going up and YOUR benefits that are going down. Please note that the CEO's of insurance companies have had a nice return on their investments, increasing compensation packages, while 47 millin remain uninsured in the free country that our brave soldiers are fighting for. I love America. It is the greatest country in the world. Please do not let Bush and Company ruin it for all but the very richest... With only the best of intentions, please note that we really need to step back every now and again, and look at our history, and all of the unplesantries that go with it and learn from it... Please realize that according to our Constitution, Bush the Elder was in fact justified in attacking Iraq because he had the authorization of the United Nations (whose charter we are signatory to and therefore we are obligated to support). Please note that The the current Bush does not have this mandate, and besides, 'regime change' was never presented to the UN as the goal, it was disarming Hussein, a valid goal... Please note that according to our COnstitution we have no right attacking and invading a foreign sovereign nation that has NOT attacked us. Please note that Even Junior Bush admitted that there was no evidence linking Hussein to bin Laden and to the 9/11 catastrophe... America: please, let us cherish, defend, and uphold our freedoms that are NOT being taken away by some foreign power on the battlefield, but rather by our government, not with a pistol and a rifle, but with a fountain pen... May God bless and continue to keep our country great. And may God allow some of the 'compassion' to show from the 'compassionate conservative'. May God Bless America, and make our appointed 'president' more responsible. With Sadness of heart, CB

Well said! The movies have become so raunchy with their filthy language, violence and sex,it is embarrasing to sit through most of them. We have been very selective in what we go to see, and there are so few of them that we find acceptable that it will be no problem to stay away from all of them. It is too bad that it seems like everything these days is reduced to the bottom line. The mere fact that these people are making the millions that they are making should cause them to appreciate this country and the brave men and women who defend their right to pursue such a lucrative line of work. Hopefully, this effort will have an impact. Delphine

Thank you for write this letter. I don't have anyone in the middle east' but l do know someone that have a son there. I was born in NEW YORK CITY and reminder what happend on September the 11 and seeing people marching about what our president is doing, about the war. We need to trust the president of our country because we the people of this nation we are giving other nation the right to think that we don't known what we are doing with our freedom. l do belive in the freedom of speech . But right now we need to stand by our men and women who is out in the middle east ate sand in a hot desert beliving in our president die for freedom of people who don't known that God have gave us. So next time you see people marching about this war think about September the 11 and tell the family that lost the one they love, and to just reminder that they was dancing in the streets, and they were giving gifts as if it was a holiday. WE wanted to go to war right then and there.

For a long time now, we, or our ancestors, have been sitting or standing on the same soil, and have occupied at one time or another, buildings that have been built over the graves of the dead,on this land that was taken from the Native Americans by force that caused deaths of no less than ten to fifteen million of their people. No one asked them if they thought that invasion was a good idea. So this idea of "keep your mouths shut, to those who are opposed to this war, or leave my country" as if it is yours alone, is very hypocritical. At that time in this country The majority of white people thought killing and taking charge of the native peoples land was a good idea, and downright civil in the eyes of their God. I am sure the majority told themselves they were doing a good thing. I am sure if a poll was taken back then, that would have been the prevailing attitude, with a few exceptions. I believe, When people are demonized It makes it much easier to rationalize hatred and violence against them. But that is all it is. A rationalization. When we turn to to violence in any way to solve any problems, we ourselves sink low to reach that level. Before any of you want to deprive any Americans of the liberty to speak out. Maybe you should ponder a while and ask yourselves... who's grave you may be resting on now here in this land? This land called America, which was not takenon any principle,but a greed for land, along with the practice of some countries of weeding out their "riffraff", and a few so called, religious principles. If you feel you have the "absolute right" to speak against others, then you also have the "absolute duty" to listen to their opinions, even when you differ. No matter what we may think about Saddam Hussein ,or his family, or his practices. Iraq did not attack us. There are many despots out there. Why not direct your anger at the "evil" in Sierra Leone who are capturing young girls and keeping them as sex slaves,and chopping the limbs off of those who oppose that practice? After all, is not every member of the human family as important as another? Maybe now we can respond...and not just react to the opinions of others. Thank You

These comments disturb me. I hate war with a passion. It creates death and destruction, strips our economy, lowers our morale, on and on. But I also hate to hear those hollywood low-life speak of our country in a negative and damaging way to the world. They live in their faux world and aren't really asked to do anything but make numerous trips to the bank to deposit their monies received from "acting". I only hope the things they are saying are just "acts". They can't be for real. If they truly feel that strongly against our country, then I suggest they leave now before the bombs fall on them. We are at great risk now and they are not part of the solution....they are a major part of the problem. They and those like them...not only hollywood but other ingrates that live in this land. I would venture to say that immigrants to this great land are more faithful than the hollywood crowd. And, thank God, not all of them are on that lowest of levels. The truth is, God loves them just like you and I.....I dont understand His wisdom, but I accept it and am grateful He loves me equally. None are perfect except Jesus, but we would strive to live our lives with this popular and true question..."what would Jesus do"? God apparently believed in war......what about Jericho? Joshua followed the commands of God and fell the walls of Jericho. Was that not war? I don't have the answers, but I know God doesn't want Saddam Hussein in control of His world. Maybe Saddam is the anti-Christ that we can expect to see; probably in our life time. As was foretold, the generation that knows the re-instatement of Israel as a nation will not pass before the second coming of Christ.......get ready folks; We are in for a big surprise......!

I too am a Proud American and while war scares me along with the thought of retaliation, doing nothing scares me more. For 23 years now the US has sat idle and allowed other nations to once again punch us in the nose. Well as far as I am concerned...9/11 was the last straw. I for one am proud to live in a country where we finally have a President who is not afraid to fight back. How long are we supposed to sit by and allow these terrorists to strike at will. In times of trouble, disasters or extreme issues, who is always there to help out and provide assistance? The United States!!! We are so hated by all but they do not hesitate to ask for help when needed. So these countries that we have helped, some more than once, where are they? How dare they turn their backs on us? France...please, dont bother to ask for our help again...we wont forget your support. While I think this is a great idea to boycott these outspoken actors and actresses that abuse their "star" status, why dont we include France in this boycott as well. Anything and everything French. While we are at it, any of these "stars" that are unhappy living here in this wonderful country of ours...move to France...and good riddance!!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND BLESS OUR TROOPS WHO ARE DOING THEIR JOBS AS PROUD AMERICANS FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOM.

I, as yourself, am sick and tired of all these damn idiots talking shit about the very same country we fight for. What kind of disrespect is that. Just last weekend, the priest at our local church spoke about our president in a very disrespectful manner. If he was not a priest, I would have kicked his ass. Honestly, I'm still thinking about it. I speak for alot of people when I say, we appreciate all the positive thoughts and support for us.

I've been reading the comments and all I can say is Bush and you pro-active war fans scare me. You ought to come down off your patriotic flag pole and check in with reality. Take a look at what WE'VE wrought on a nation and it's people, never mind what Saddam has done to these very same people. What makes it okay if we kill, maim, and destroy their homes and families? And we are doing this on the premise of what they might do someday down the road!! It's like attacking my neighbor and attempting to destroy him because he's a mean ass and I fear he might do "something" to me in the future. What stupid reasoning. So turn it around and make the American people believe it a fight for freedom for them and the Iraqi people. Hruump!!! A nation of sheep. I can't help but think that if we could have contained Suddam without this violent war, even for six more months, our young military corps who have been killed would have had that much more time with their loved ones on this earth. Have you folks been looking at the picture on the front of the Newspapers? If you have you will see terror on a father's face holding his childrens hands running, as they are caught between the Iraqi military and the U.S. military tanks. Their home just destroyed and fleeing to find someplace to hide from the bombs and artillary. You would see a U.S military soldier holding a small bloody child in his arms trying to comfort her. You would see one of our G.I's, terror on his face as he carries a wounded buddy because his buddy is injured and cannot walk. And, I can only wonder how the Iraqi citizens can have anything but hate and contempt for us? And I say to all you who want to send those Hollywood entertainers and anti war activists to Iraqi to see how they would like living there, all I can say is SEND YOUR OWNSELVES THERE AND SEE HOW YOU LIKE RUNNING FOR YOUR LIVES, HAVING YOUR HOMES BLOWN UP BY OUR BOMBS, HAVING YOUR CHILDREN SHOT AND LOVED ONES SHOT DEAD OR BOMBED DEAD. You may not think this war is so patriotic then!! Sorry folks, it's hard to be patriotic in this kind of evil havoc we are reaping on the folks in Iraq. They don't deserve it. No one deserves this kind of treatment. As for 9-11 that most all of you mention...there is no evidence whatsoever that Iraq had anything to do with it. There was not ONE Iraqi involved in that terrorist act. It wasn't "weapons of mass distruction" that brought down the towers, Pentagon, and the crash in PA. It was our very own planes that were used. We have an arrogant egomaniac president blinded by power who lacks the ability to work with the rest of the civilized nations to contain the madman, suddam who has thrust us into this war where we now have no other choice but to fight to the end. What a JERK!! Yup, I'm scared. There will be no winners in this war. Just a lot of lost lives that didn't have to happen. What a waste of lives and money. I believe Mr. Bush will go down in history as this country's WORST PRESIDENT. He's not only caused our nation to be in conflict with one another over HIS choice to go to war, he's caused conflict all around the world in this. This is not a man who is working toward world peace, folks.

I agree with everyword and support the troops in Irac, God Bless you for making this statement, & I do not attend movies, nor will I watch a movie on TV that has the movie stars who oppose the President or the war in Irac. I am ashamed of the demonstrators opposeing the war, I think they should be sent to Irac under the regine of Hussaine, where they could not demonstrate only be killed if they did.

Bless you and your family in this trying time. We'll keep you all in our prayers and for the safe return of your son-in-law. No one wants war, but the alternative is a bigger price than any of these anti-war americans would be willing to pay. It has been said before, and we'd like to repeat it: IF YOU DON'T LOVE AMERICA, LEAVE IT!!. Go live in another country where you can't practice the religion you chose, where the opportunities are limited to you and your children, where some night your front door will be broken down and your family taken into the streets and shot because you said something in public against THEIR govenment. Leave here, PLEASE. You don't deserve to live where you won't fight for the freedom you inherited by being an American. Go fly your anti-war flag somewhere else. YOU'RE NOT WELCOME HERE ANYMORE!! We're proud of our troops and their families, and fly the American flag with pride. If we don't do something now to protect our country, it will be our children, or grandchildren, who will face the evilness that is threatening us all today. God bless you. Bill and Pam Casey Ohio

WHAT IT DOES IS TO SHOW THEIR TOTAL IGNORANCE OF WHAT THE WORLD IS REALLY ABOUT. THEY LIVE IN THEIR OWN "MILLIONAIRE" LITTLE WORLD, THINKING THEY ARE ABOVE EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE OF THEIR MONEY AND CELEBRITY STATUS. WHAT A JOKE!!!!! THE ONLY REASON THEY ARE ABLE TO DO WHAT THEY DO IS BECAUSE OF THEIR MONEY. IF THE REST OF US HAD THEIR MONEY WE COULD ADVERTISE AND HAVE T.V. COMMERCIALS "FOR" THE WAR AND BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN WHY WE FEEL THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. I'M SORRY, BUT THESE PEOPLE MAKE ME ILL....ESPECIALLY MARTIN SHEEN. HE HAS BEEN ON "WEST WING" SO LONG THAT HE ACTUALLY THINKS HE IS PRESIDENT. IF HE WAS I CAN ASSURE YOU I WOULD LEAVE THIS COUNTRY FAST BEFORE IT BECAME ANOTHER IRAQ! I HAVE NOT WATCHED "WEST WING" SINCE HE STARTED HIS STUPID LITTLE TYRAID. IT USE TO BE MY FORVORITE PROGRAM, BUT I WILL NEVER WATCH IT AGAIN. I WOULD NOW LIKE THE THANK EACH AND EVERY SERVICE MAN OR WOMAN AGAIN FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING SO THAT OUR COUNTRY CAN REMAIN FREE AND NOT SHAKING IN FEAR THAT WE MIGHT HAVE ANOTHER 9-11. WE MAY HAVE ANOTHER TERRORIST HIT, IT IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? THAT WILL STOP AND THEN OTHERS WILL COWER IN FEAR WHEN THEY THINK ABOUT ATTACKING THE USA AGAIN. THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL AND MY PRAYERS ARE WITH EACH OF YOU EVERY NIGHT. I AM A CHRISTIAN AND I PRAY CONSTANLY FOR PRESIDENT BUSH AND ALL OF OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. THOSE WHO MAKE THE MOST NOISE ABOUT HOW BAD THIS WAR IS..... HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT THEY NEVER LEAVE AND EMAIL ADDRESS, PHONE, ADDRESS OR ANY OTHER WAY OF GETTING IN CONTACT TO VOICE AN OPPOSIT OPPINION?.....BUT THEY ARE LOUD AND DUMB AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED. I PRAY THAT ALL OF THEM WILL WAKE UP SOMEDAY AND REALIZE THEY ARE JUST PEOPLE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. GOD THINKS NO MORE OR NO LESS OF THEM. EVEN IF THEY DON'T LOVE HIM, HE LOVES THEM. I AM NOT AFRAID TO LEAVE MY EMAIL ADDRESS. SO YOU WANT TO DISAGREE WITH ME, HERE IT IS.  WANDA....MISSOURI

I'll repeat another mans words- "I see neither bravery nor sacrifice in destroying life or property for offence or defence" That goes for the property of the Iraqi and the right to perform and be a star for our American Stars.

Amen, Sister, Amen. Question? how do we get these posted comments to these "stars" like Martin Sheen, Madonna, etc. I thought it was beyond the absurd when he had duct tape over his mouth the other day with Peace written on it. Let's give him a one-way first class ticket to Baghdad and give him a roll of duct tape to take with him. I think the Republican Army of Saddam will be more than happy to help wrap him wrap his baseless mouth shut. What gets me is why do they think that they are experts on war, world politics and on and on when they simply are actors that have gotten lucky and made millions of dollars off suckers like you and me? We need to let them read these comments. Lets somehow get this to that loser at the Academy Awards that talked bad about our president. Let's bronze a copy for those loser Dixie Chicks. Don't ever, ever buy another one of their CD's, is my opinion. These "stars" are people who have never given to their country, all they have done is take, take take. And now, they want to embarass us and ridicule our President and our government. I say, ship them all out, banish them. I never will watch one of their films again. Wyoming

I too am tired of people using their fame to defame others. I agree that we all have the right to our opinion. I support our troops that are over there and I also feel Saddam is a madman that has persecuted his people long enough. I am, however sick and tired of people claiming we should not criticize President Bush during this war. In that vein I would like you to read something that was said quite a while ago. This comes from an editorial that Theodore Roosevelt wrote during World War I in response to those who said Woodrow Wilson should not be criticized while the war was still going on: "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else." (Kansas City Star, May 7, 1918)

I agree that famous people should be very careful in what they say and do because of the influence that they have on others. I do not attend movies very often, but boycotting them is a good idea. At this, while our country is at war, whether you believe in the war or not, we should all rally around our military personell that are over there fighting at this very time. It must be very difficult for them to be away from their families and loved ones, and I know it's very difficult for the loved ones left behind. They deserve our support! It's time to put personal opinions aside and stand together as a country. "If you don't stand up for something, You'll fall for anything". And without these precious souls fighting for our country, Sadam, or someone like him, could become OUR president.

I couldn't agree with you more. These pampered whiners think they are representatives of our wonderful country, but they are usually uneducated morons. The product they produce is deplorable. They are too young to remember what Hitler did because he was not stopped because of people like them. Instead of their rhetoric, a history lesson of the events of the late 1930s would be a better use of their time. I guess reading history is beyond them. They are too involved in drugs, quick marriages and divorces and infidelity to study history. I do want to make a correction to one of the earlier writers however. There are over 200 Polish commandoes fighting alongside the Australians in Irag. My heart breaks every time I hear of the loss of one of our troops. MaryAnn D. Spring Hill, FL

Thank you so much for giving the patriotic Americans (who are the majority, by the way) the chance to show our support of our great military and our President!! The media needs to show more of the Americans who are grateful to the troops for what they are doing for us and all mankind. These guys need to see that we are behind them all the way and appreciate their sacrifice. The "stars" in Hollywood are in their fantasy world and don't have a clue about real life. How many of their children/grandchildren are in the military? I am proud to be an American and am tired of the miniority taking away the rights of the majority in this country, for whatever reasons.

This writer says it all!! Amen! Date: 30 Mar 2003 Time: 10:57:52 Comments I am very proud to be an American too! I do not agree with this war. It is wrong! What happened on 09/11 is terrible! No one has proven that Saddam Hussein was behind that terrible event. He is a villainous leader. There are ways of dealing with that. The U.S. going to war when there is no immanent threat is irresponsible. There is a process that the world community can follow and that is through the U.N. As a nation we are tearing apart all that we have worked hard for over 200 years to build. That we are a nation built on principles that honor the best in the human spirit, and honors God. We have transgressed from commonly accepted international norms in trying to help a captive people. Vengeance begets vengeance. Just because we happen to be a super power at this time in history does not give us the right to abuse that power by inflicting our President's will not just upon Saddam and his regime, but upon the whole world community. The so called wisdom of our present administration is not greater than the collective wisdom of the larger world community that we live in and take part in. The cost of this war will be mind boggling. Thanks to this administration, not even 1 penny has been included in next years budget to assist with the rebuilding of Afghanistan after all of our bombings, not to mention that Mr. Bin Laden is still on the loose. I DO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS. I hope you will be just as convinced in calling upon our president, Mr. Bush to be more reasonable with the budget so that our troops will be cared for in a humane way when they return, especially those wounded and in need of health resources. The president will never be able to "support our troops" by giving huge tax breaks to our wealthiest citizens and also care for our "wounded troops" when they will be in need. There will not be enough monies to provide for their care, as is already evidenced by the lack of care for the troops from the last Gulf War. Yes I am proud to be an American, I do support our troops, but I believe that we are fighting a war that is wrong, because we have gone into it without the support of the rest of the world, and with Great Arrogance. This Self-Serving Pride will come back to haunt us. Also in the mean time, watch our taxes go up to pay for all this. And who wins when our taxes go up? The same people who win when oil proffits hit "their" pockets... and it is not our troops nor the average American that will benifit. Period. Peace eventually, . Giancarlo

I remember how it was when our young men went to war with Viet Nam...How many ran from it, and how our young men felt resentment, rightfully so, for those like Hanoi Nancy, and others who so shamefully showed their non-support, and disrespect for everything that our young men and women were fighting for, and willing to give their lives for. Now, in a different era, and seeing our sons and daughters off to a modern tech, war, but still facing very dangerious foes, and loveing them all so much, and the selfless love they are showing us, and seeing Hollywood doing it's blasphemed best to degrade, and remove God from our side, and our hearts, I just can't believe their shameful way of expressing their "rights", that they have because of our boys and girls over there makeing the untimate sacrifices for these people, as well of those who love, care, and tend to their babies while they are away risking their lives for us. I for one, will ban supporting these betrayers, by not watching their movies, and listening to their music. America, Love it, or Leave it. But always keep it in God's hands.

I totally agree with what you say about Hollywood. They have had far too much control over many issues in this country!!! The sad part is that it is we the people who have let this happen. We have also let too many politicians get away with things that they shoud NOT. The boycott is a great idea to get Hollywood to see our point. I think we also need to say it loud and clear when we vote to the politicians who forget how they got where they are!!!!! They are there to represent US not their own agendas!!!!! AND IT IS TIME WE REMIND THEM!! We have let some "commies" take prayer out of our schools and now they want "In God We Trust" out of our lives. IF "SOME PEOPLE" are offended by things we believe in this country...LEAVE!!!!! We speak ENGLISH here... LIVE WITH IT!!!! I do not agree that we "HAD" to go to war at this time....but i do fully support the BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN who are risking their lives to keep us free!! GOD BLESS THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!!

Give this some thought when you make plans for that summer vacation or for business trips. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR TROOPS! I HAVE FOUR OF SIX FAMILY MEMBERS IN THE AIR FORCE OVER IN QATAR, IRAQ, AND KUWAIT. THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT NOT OUR CONDEMNATION! YOU GO GIRL! DIANA, LAKE OF THE OZARKS, MISSOURI

I'm not a Republican, however, I agree with our president's war effort, and I support our troops wholeheartedly. I'm an employee of a major airline that is now on the brink of bankrupcy due in large part to the events surrounding 9/11, and though I'm not blind enough to think that one dictator a terrorist makes, I'm smart enough to know that dog begets dog, and if we don't do something with finality now, terrorism and risk to the U.S. will NEVER stop. I acknowledge everyone's freedom of speech and First Amendment Rights, and am not influenced by Hollywood hype or celebrity. I don't respect those who have taken advantage of their positions' and used the media as a forum to influence others to their opinion when there are so many needy causes they could instead represent. I applaud the singers who have given us the great patriotic songs-Merle Haggard, Toby Keith and Aaron Tippin, to name a few. I will be boycotting any of the ilk who have expressed what I consider to be subversive opinion. I pray for peace on earth, may God bless America, its allies, the innocents and all those who fight for our liberties! D. McDonald, Amarillo, TX, USA - Land of the free and home of the brave

I agree with your thought with all my heart. We can do something about this and we can do it buy not buying their products. Do not attend their movies, buy their music and write the network they are appearing on. Write, call or email your local TV/Radio stations and ask that they not play their music or run their program on their stations. They are not any smarter or more educated than the people who is elected/appointed to run the operation of this country and certainly not informed on what is going on in the background of running this wonderful country. They are little people who would like everyone to think that just because they play a role on a TV program as President of this country, that they qualified them to think they know everything and I think everyone knows who I am talking about here.

The sooner Sadaam is gone the better the world will be. Lets just pray each and every day for our troops, to give the wisdom to Pres.

I agree completely with this woman. However it is not just the actors and actresses that are trashing our nation and president. Let us not forget the "Dixie Chicks" and their negative comments while touring in another country. Maybe if more people stayed home from the concerts and also quit buying the CD's of theirs they might finally get the message. As they like to say, "money talks" so lets controll ours and put it to good use. Even if you don't believe in this war you still need to support our troops, our president and our nation. If you can't handle this go to France where you'll be in the majority and stay there. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES where we are "ONE NATION UNDER GOD".

God Bless Our Troops. They are continually in my thoughts and prayers. I believe in what they are doing for our country. We will not be bullied any longer. Every since the Gulf War Saddam and is supporters have been attacking us little my little. When 9/11 occurred, that was the last straw. Some times, when you are being bullied, you have to stand up for yourself. You can only turn your cheek so many times, but, eventually, you have to take a stand. I love my country and I have so much respect for our soldiers. They are God's Angels and I love them dearly. May Saddam and his family be defeated! May freedom come to the Iraqi people. May are nation feel safer without the continual threat of terrorism. May those who have made the untilmate sacrafice by defending our freedom find peace in their spirits as well as their families. WE WILL NOT BE BULLIED ANY LONGER!

Why aren't they talking! Where you voice now!You ignernerant fools.Anot6her thought for them iswhy have the war there when we could have it here on our front door like 9/11.That would be better if we let them bring there stuff here and kill alot more of us. It's not that they haven't tried with booms in chicagoand snippers in the east and shootings in air ports that have happen herebut not everything is be told huh.where did some of that come from?the mid east and Iraq.so why are we there to protect the USA and your right to be foolish.no more movies for me.

I was in the Pacific in WWII and remember Bob Hope and many, many fine entertainers giving their time, traveling long distances and risking their own lives to entertain the troops on little islands, aboard ship and wherever there was a landing strip and some fighting men. The whining, yellow, ignorant entertainers of today not only can't act on the same level as those old timers but in my opinion they've given up the right to be called "Americans".

I am so utterly sick, frustrated and angry at all the anti war protestors in our own country that I could scream. I wish I could get on national TV and tell them all "You may not like what's going on but you live in this country, you can at least support your own men and women that are over there fighting. And besides that, if you think things were so great the way they were over there then please feel free to move there, and don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out!!!!" Do some of you not realize what those people have been living through. None of us like war. I don't know a single person that wants their family member over there taking the chance of getting killed. But sometimes we have to do what's necessary whether we like it or not. And I am sorry to say that people like Saddam and Osama are not people that you can sit down and reason with. To the person that kept writing "They are dead they are dead" and for us to realize the people who took down the towers died too. Do you really think they were the only ones???!!!! THat just because they died in the crashed too that it will never happen again? What are you going to say when the next time it happens it hits your child's school or day care or someone else you love???? It's never going to stop until these evil men are stopped. I would love for you to sit and listen to some of the people from Iraq tell their stories of children being taken from their families, rape, torture, watching loved ones being put through "human meat grinders" while alive. Does this not remind you of another leader in the past??? And do you think that long ago leader could have been stopped with anything other than war?? We have been trying too long to go about this in other ways. I say it's time to do the deed and get it done. Those people have suffered long enough. And PLEASE if you want to be a human shield please feel free. I'm sure that's going to solve the problem. I say if you want to do something, pray. Pray every morning, noon, and night for our troops, the foreign troops and the people that live there. Pray for this to all end soon with as little loss of life as possible. Sandy Wyoming

I am so glad that someone, other than the people in Hollywood and the one that demonstrate against the war, has spoke up. What if the entertainers of this UNITED STATES and the ones that walk against the war, were in the Twin Towers when they were hit? It has been told on the News, that some have added more guards to protect them for all enemies. What I think the UNITED STATES should have done was got that evil man when they were over there in Desert Storm. But he was allowed to live and to continue his evil ways. He has made the comment several times that, " This we do for God. " God is not an evil God. Everything that is happening right now, you can read about in the Bible. It is all taking place this very minute. So my prayer is, if any of you that have read this, do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray that you do so soon. Jesus knows your hearts already. I for another one, am a woman, that backs the President of these UNITED STATES and I also back ALL THE WOMEN AND MEN THAT ARE OVER IN IRAQ FIGHTING FOR US. NOT JUST ME OR YOU BUT ALSO THE ENTERTAINERS IN THE INDUSTRY AND THE ONES THAT WALK AGAINST THE WAR. No one wants war. But something has to be done with this evil man Saddam. I am 55 years young but if I was young enough to fight, I would be right there with all the REAL MEN AND WOMEN of this country. GOD BLESS AMERICA AS WELL AS AMERICA BLESS GOD!!!!!!!!!!

I am an American who loves her country and supports our troops. I have a nephew over in Iraq right now and I fear for him. But I cannot agree with your call to boycott the movies,even though I see few myself....You chide our entertainers for speaking out with their opinions,because you disagree with them. They are no brighter or less intelligent than the average citizen..Because they are in the public eye you would deny them the right to speak their mind,and you want to punish them and the whole industry for a few that did speak their mind against your own opinion. So you are going to punish everyone from the gopher,to the star of a movie to get your point across...What of their families,husbands,wives,children who did not open their mouths against your beliefs? And what if their spouse,parent or child is over serving their country,are you going to deny them a job at a time when they need it most....How very Christian of you...just to make sure that your opinion is the only one that counts. If you must disagree okay, but why must you want to take away someone elses right to their opinion by punishing them...If your not with us you are against us attitude, scares me more than anything else because you are attempting to take away the rights that my ancestors fought for......Talk about Power corrupts, are you not using your forum here on the internet to punish those who disagree with you...."God will punish those who deserve it, it is not your right to do that" Or have I missed something along the way? Everyone has the right to decide for themselves to not go to the movies or buy the Dixie Chicks CD's but for you to encourage them is a corrupting power and I think you should rethink how Christian you really are.......Carol,Wa.State

I served on the battlefields of Vietnam and even though I came home to no fanfare other than that of my immediate family, I have always held my head up high and my shoulders back, for my country. Imagine that, I enlisted to go to Vietnam so that I could save our country from any risk of oppression. Gee, doesn't that sound awful familiar? I haven't heard these overpaid jokers in Hollywood support our troops, just condemn them and our country. The same goes for anyone else, whether they be politicians, country-rock stars, or the good old garden variety war protestors. I can choose who I vote for, whose movies I pay my hard-earned money for, whose CD's I buy, etc. If enough people feel this way we can make an impact. We need to pray to God to save our country and to protect our troops. This country has strayed from God's will. Peter in Asheville, NC

I agree with this e-mail and salute the author for having the courage to step forward and do something about it but complain. Because of recent behaviors of some of Hollywood's best known actor and actresses, I for one, did not watch the Oscars that were recently telivised. I am not impressed either with their educational credentials which are in most cases are nothing to brag about, therefore I am not listening to their self proclaimed, bigger than life, know it all attitude. Not only will I boycott their movies as my rebuttal, if you will, to their intolerable behavior as I see it, but I will probably never want to watch them on T.V.,either. They are motivated by money, and are way overpaid as far as I'm concerned, so let's see if after the boycott,they are humbled by our actions as a reaction to theirs. Signed AWP

I have talked about the same thing the past day or so and plan on doing just that as well as calling our local media to alert them to the same thing. If they can give air time to these people who are vocalizing their distrust/dislike about our president and the war then by golly they can sure give air time to those who do support our president and the brave men and women who are serving over there to protect our freedoms (i.e. the freedom we love so much-freedom of speech). These men and women are risking their lives to protect that freedom which those who work in Hollywood love to use! Boycott not only the movies but the television shows they work on! I used to love to watch the West Wing until I saw Martin Sheen on television making a mockery of the freedom of speech-with duct tape over his mouth to protest the war.

I am in total agreement. This land was founded on Freedom. God has created us all equal and in His image. The people of Iraq need freedom from the evil dictator. They deserve the equal rights that we enjoy as Americans. I do not like war, it is an awful thing. But sometimes it is the only solution. Just as a parent disciplines their child. Do you think they enjoy that? No. But if they want their children to grow up as decent adults they fulfill their obligation as parents and do their duty which is to discipline their children. We have friends whose sons are soldiers in the war. I know they anxiously await news from their beloved sons. But they also agree that their sons are fighting for what is right. I am disgusted when we see people spouting off when they do not know what they are talking about. We should support our President, he carries an awesome burden and needs prayers instead of insults. I am a Christian and my God is a God of love, but He is also a just God. We should support our President and our Troops with prayers as they fight for a just cause.

I, too, am ashamed of the people that are protesting in this country and around the world. This war is the right thing to do for the people that are oppressed in Iraq and other countries. I think our President is doing a great job and I hope and pray that this time our allied forces will finish the job for all time. It would be very saddening to me and a lot of people that have loved ones in harms way for this great effort to be a lost cause if all the evil leaders of Irag are not removed in whatever way that it takes. I thank God that we live in a free country but, if terrorism is not dealt with, we will have many more terroist attacks in the United States Of American and around the world. People should be able to pursue whatever dreams they have and be able to worship their God. We also believe in the living God and his son, Jesus Christ. We must pray each and every day for our President and all armed forces in the allied services for God's speed in this effort and to protect each and everyone in harms way. May this GREAT NATION see their standing before GOD, and repent of it's evil. If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Hey all of you who say we should sit back and do nothing to this mad man, read your history books, have you forgot Hitler? This man is doing just as bad as Hitler did. Wonder where the French would be if the good old USA had not helped them free their country in world war 2. Of course they don't mind using our money and if all those countries would pay back all the loans the USA has given we could pay for a lot of wars to free these opressed people. The fact they have fired on our country in 9 11 is enough to cause the USA people to stand up and fight. Even if none of this was true why in world are you standing up for the enemy against the american boys over there fighting. It seems to me like President Bush's people ought to be watching, loading up airplanes and parachutes and drop these traitors right in Sadaam's lap so they can protect him. Maybe then they could see what a mad man he really is. God Bless America land that I love and I say love it or leave it. A proud American in Texas.

Bravo for your voice.. I agree with you... People have a right to their views but not if it dishonors America, our Troops, and the President.. If people want to protest they need to do it quietly...not in public riots which our Soldiers see... What that must do to their moral to see all of the protesting going on while they are there putting their lives on the line to keep our freedom alive and to let the Iraqians see what freedom is all about.... I am so proud of all of our Soldiers... I have a Mother's Heart toward them ALL and my prayers are never ceasing for each one of them..I feel as if they are all my sons and daughters..and my heart is so involved in this war.. Nobody wants war...but when it happens we need to stand behind our country and our President, and our Soldiers... BRAVO.. I am proud and have my Pages for our Soldiers out for the world to see. GOD BLESS AMERICA, OUR PRESIDENT, AND OUR TROOPS. Carol Herring Holcomb...SC

Thank you so much for letting us give our comments! Thank God for all our blessed troops, our President and all our godly men and women praying for them in this vast country of ours. I certainly am not in agreement with hollywood stars on this issue. I think they need to be praying for our President, our country, and our troops.

I'm back again. I voiced my opinion once before and would like to add another comment. First of all, I love the fact that so many Americans feel as strongly for their country as I do. Second of all, I would like to say that not only am I proud to be an American but I also feel blessed by God to have been born in this country. Our founding fathers are probably rolling over in their graves at the thought of Americans who do not support our president. Whether you like him, agree with him, or not he still is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and if you live in this country he IS YOUR PRESIDENT TOO. It doesn't matter whether you voted for him, like him, etc. Can you please have guts to support his office, respect his office. He is the Commander in Chief. Until God is ready for him to take a different role, he will continue to be the least these people can do is say "you know I don't like or agree with the war but we are in war and our nation needs to come together to support our president and our troops who risk their lives for us!" They are risking their lives for even the people who are bad mouthing our president and his cabinet. Thank you for voicing your opinion. Maybe, just maybe, someone out there will listen. God bless the United States of America! Holly and Don, Alabama

I , too, believe we ought to boycott any tv show or movie that has one of the sukper liberals in them. People such as Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen, Mike Farrel, Madonna, Sean Penn, the Dixie Chicks and Barbara Streisand. Especially that bafoon director of short features. But there are people who are in the entertainment business who we should really support who are patriotic , such as the Charley Daniels Band, James Woods (yes, he did come out in support of the President). There should be a list compiled of who to support and who not to,.

I absolutely agree that the folks of Hollywood are no more qualified to set our foreign policy than anyone else. It is our collective financial support, by spending our money to attend movies, that gives them the fame, wealth and platform required to be heard above the rest of us. There may not be much we can do about putting them in their current position, but we can certainly do something about their staying there, or who we promote to that position. I intend to boycott the movies of those who I believe have behaved badly with regard to their movie-attained fame. Those who abuse their status by adopting positions that are supportive of our enemies, after having reached some level of notoriety through their career as entertainers, are not worthy of my support. I will continue to support the movies of those who do not abuse their fame, or who are outspoken in support of our country and our military. Frankly, I feel similar anger toward several of our more prominent politicians. I am disgusted at the political opportunism of a couple of folks who I formerly held in high regard. Senators Daschle and Byrd have crossed the line, in my opinion, and have attempted to gain some political advantage at the expense of our military, who were enroute, or already in harms way. I encourage them to resign and have informed them of my opinion via e-mail message--in my opinion, they have provided aid and comfort to our enemies. Richard Cook Jr.

I have read several of the comments posted on this page, and I agree with the majority of them. I think President Bush is doing an excellent job, as well as our military. I am completely disgusted with hollywood and there lack of patriotism and support for our troops and country. It irritates me that so many people in hollywood and the protestors are so misinformed. Statements that we should educate Iraq and negotiate or reason with Saddam, You cannot negotiate with or educate terrorists. Saddam Hussein is a terrorist, he is harboring al-queda terrorists in Iraq. Al-Queda terrorists are fighting along side of Iraqi's. He has tortured, gased, raped, and murdered his own people. Hollywood and these protestor's need to educate themselves and know what is actually going on in the world before opening there mouths and blocking city streets, and condemning those who support this country to hell.

My comment is this. You are entitled to your opinion and as I am mine. I do not think it is disrespectful to not want war. War is an act of cowardice. War is an act of children not getting their way and having a lethal tantrum. War is disrespectful to children. War is disrespectful to mothers and fathers who will never see their children again. War is disrespectful of all mankind. Shame on people that hide behind the great American Flag and spout slogans of war. It is a horrible thing. It is called freedom to disagree and if you don't like it move to China or some other country run by a petty dictator. In this country we speak our minds and sign our letters. Give Peace A Chance.

I know this is long....but great! Who's Smarter? The Hollywood group is at it again. Holding anti-war rallies, screaming about the Bush Administration, running ads in major newspapers, defaming the President and his Cabinet every chance they get, to anyone and everyone who will listen. They publicly defile them and call them names like "stupid", "morons", and "idiots". Jessica Lange went so far as to tell a crowd in Spain that she hates President Bush and is embarrassed to be an American. So, just how ignorant are these people who are running the country? Let's look at the biographies of these "stupid", "ignorant" , "moronic" leaders, and then at the celebrities who are castigating them: President George W. Bush: Received a Bachelors Degree from Yale University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He served as an F-102 pilot for the Texas Air National Guard. He began his career in the oil and gas business in Midland in 1975 and worked in the energy industry until 1986. He was elected Governor on November 8, 1994, with 53.5 percent of the vote. In a historic re-election victory, he became the first Texas Governor to be elected to consecutive four-year terms on November 3, 1998 winning 68.6 percent of the vote. In 1998 Governor Bush won 49 percent of the Hispanic vote, 27 percent of the African-American vote, 27 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of women. He won more Texas counties, 240 of 254, than any modern Republican other than Richard Nixon in 1972 and is the first Republican gubernatorial candidate to win the heavily Hispanic and Democratic border counties of El Paso, Cameron and Hidalgo. (Someone began circulating a false story about his I.Q. being lower than any other President. If you believed it, you might want to go to Vice President Dick Cheney: Earned a B.A. in 1965 and a M.A. in 1966, both in political science. Two years later, he won an American Political Science Association congressional fellowship. One of Vice President Cheney's primary duties is to share with individuals, members of Congress and foreign leaders, President Bush's vision to strengthen our economy, secure our homeland and win the War on Terrorism. In his official role as President of the Senate, Vice President Cheney regularly goes to Capital Hill to meet with Senators and members of the House of Representatives to work on the Administration's legislative goals. In his travels as Vice President, he has seen first hand the great demands the war on terrorism is placing on the men and women of our military, and he is proud of the tremendous job they are doing for the United States of America. Secretary of State Colin Powell: Educated in the New York City public schools, graduating from the City College of New York (CCNY), where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in geology. He also participated in ROTC at CCNY and received a commission as an Army second lieutenant upon graduation in June 1958.

Born November 14, 1954 in Birmingham, Al abama, she resides in Washington, D.C. +++++++++ Now the "experts" from Hollywood............ So who are these celebrities? What is their education? What is their experience in affairs of State or in National Security? While I will defend to the death their right to express their opinions, I think that if they are going to call into question the intelligence of our leaders, we should also have all the facts on their educations and background: Barbra Streisand : Completed high school Career: Singing and acting Cher: Dropped out of school in 9th grade. Career: Singing and acting Martin Sheen: Flunked exam to enter University of Dayton. Career: Acting Jessica Lange: Dropped out college mid-freshman year. Career: Acting Alec Baldwin: Dropped out of George Washington U. after scandal. Career: Acting Julia Roberts: Completed high school. Career: Acting Sean Penn: Completed High school. Career: Acting Susan Sarandon: Degree in Drama from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Career: Acting Ed Asner; Completed High school. Career: Acting George Clooney: Dropped out of University of Kentucky. Career: Acting Michael Moore: Dropped out first year University of Michigan. Career: Movie Director Sarah Jessica Parker: Completed High School. Career: Acting Jennifer Anniston: Completed High School. Career: Acting Mike Farrell: Completed High school. Career: Acting Janeane Garofelo: Dropped out of College. Career: Stand up comedian Larry Hagman: Attended Bard College for one year. Career: Acting While comparing the education and experience of these two groups, we should also remember that President Bush and his cabinet are briefed daily, even hourly, on the War on Terror and threats to our security. They are privy to information gathered around the world concerning the Middle East, the threats to America, the intentions of terrorists and terrorist-supporting governments. They are in constant communication with the CIA, the FBI, Interpol, NATO, The United Nations, our own military, and that of our allies around the world. We cannot simply believe that we have full knowledge of the threats because we watch CNN!! We cannot believe that we are in any way as informed as our leaders. These celebrities have no intelligence-gathering agents, no fact-finding groups, no insight into the minds of those who would destroy our country. They only have a deep-seated hatred for all things Republican. By nature, and no one knows quite why, the Hollywood elitists detest Conservative views and anything that supports or uplifts the United States of America. The silence was deafening from the Left when Bill Clinton bombed a pharmaceutical factory outside of Khartoum, or when he attacked the Bosnian Serbs in 1995 and 1999. He bombed Serbia itself to get Slobodan Milosevic out of Kosovo, and not a single peace rally was held. When our Rangers were ambushed in Somalia and 18 young American lives were lost, not a peep was heard from Hollywood. Yet now, after our nation has been attacked on its own soil, after 3,000 Americans were killed, by freedom-hating terrorists, while going about their routine lives, they want to hold rallies against the war. Why the change? Because an honest, God-fearing Republican sits in the White House. Another irony is that in 1987, when Ronald Reagan was in office, the Hollywood group aligned themselves with disarmament groups like SANE, FREEZE and PEACE ACTION, urging our own government to disarm and freeze the manufacturing of any further nuclear weapons, in order to promote world peace. It is curious that now, even after we have heard all the evidence that Saddam Hussein has chemical, biological and is very close to obtaining nuclear weapons, their is no cry from this group for HIM to disarm. They believe we should leave him alone in his quest for these weapons of mass destruction, even though it is certain that these deadly weapons will eventually be used against us in our own cities. So why the hype out of Hollywood? Could these celebrities believe that since they draw such astronomical salaries, they are entitled to also determine the course of our Nation? That they can make viable decisions concerning war and peace? Did Michael Moore have the backing of the Nation when he recently thanked France, on our behalf, for being a "good enough friend to tell us we were wrong"? I know for certain he was not speaking for me. Does Sean Penn fancy himself a Diplomat, in going to Iraq when we are just weeks away from war? Does he believe that his High School Diploma gives him the knowledge (and the right) to go to a country that is controlled by a maniacal dictator, and speak on behalf of the American people? Or is it the fact that he pulls in more money per year than the average American worker will see in a lifetime? Does his bank account give him clout? The ultimate irony is that many of these celebrities have made a shambles of their own lives, with drug abuse, alcoholism, numerous marriages and divorces, scrapes with the law, publicized temper tantrums, etc. How dare they pretend to know what is best for an entire nation! What is even more bizarre is how many people in this country will listen and accept their views, simply because they liked them in a certain movie, or have fond memories of an old television sitcom! It is time for us, as citizens of the United States, to educate ourselves about the world around us. If future generations are going to enjoy the freedoms that our forefathers bequeathed us, if they are ever to know peace in their own country and their world, to live without fear of terrorism striking in their own cities, we must assure that this nation remains strong. We must make certain that those who would destroy us are made aware of the severe consequences that will befall them. Yes, it is a wonderful dream to sit down with dictators and terrorists and join hands, singing Cumbaya and talking of world peace. But it is not real. We did not stop Adolf Hitler from taking over the entire continent of Europe by simply talking to him. We sent our best and brightest, with the strength and determination that this Country is known for, and defeated the Nazi regime. President John F. Kennedy did not stop the Soviet ships from unloading their nuclear missiles in Cuba in 1962 with mere words. He stopped them with action, and threat of immediate war if the ships did not turn around. We did not end the Cold War with conferences. It ended with the strong belief of President Ronald Reagan... PEACE through STRENGTH

I could not agree with you more. I too, am sick and tired of the anti-American sentiment that is taking over the minds of otherwise rational human beings. I have a friend whose son is also in Iraq. He is sickened by the protest he sees on tv as he is on the front lines fighting for his country. These protest are sending the message that we as Americans are not supporting our troops in Iraq. I do not believe that proud Americans feel this way. JR-Wisconsin

The whole premis of boycotting Hollywood is based on the fact that some of them have voiced an objection to this war on Iraq. IRAQ had nothing to do with 911. It was Osama Been Forgotten. The people that object to this stupid war do it on the basis that it's the wrong war with the wrong enemy. What happened to Osama? What about North Korea who have atomic weapons, and Iran who is actively manufactuiring them? I intend to see every movie that comes out, and ignore the MORON MAJORITY.

Hi, Thank you for your letter. We have not attended a movie in many years. My husband and I are among the Senior Citizens of this country. Therefore, our vote in favor of your letter would not be of much help to you. However, we do "boycott" some television programs. We are in the world, but we are not of the world. One of the most so-called popular series, set in Washington DC, has one of the most vocal anti-war individuals in its cast. No one wants war. But no one wants evil lurking at our doorstep either. We are not battling flesh and blood, but we are pushing back the forces of the evil one, Satan himself. When I hear of anyone, no matter what fame or fortune they claim, deride our President and those who are laying their lives on the line with no complaining, it does make me so angry, but it also wants me to tell the loudmouths, "why don't you use your vocal cords to put down abortion, all those innocent babies dying probably a death possibly more horriblethan their minds can imagine." Where are they when we need somone to vocalize about the injustice done to abused children, abused spouses, abused parents,

To Hollywood! Be thankful that all the boys and girls that are standing tonight on foreign soil and dying are doing it for you and for me! They are not getting paid Millions of dollars like each one of you! They are not eating out in 5 star resturants, they are not sleeping in 4 poster beds, they are not riding around in Limosines. They do not warm up to a comfortable couch and sit by a fireplace and think oh how wonderful I am that everyone looks up to me! I will say this each and everyone of you should get down on your knees and ask the Lord for foregiveness for what you have done by protesting and belittling our country and our President the way that you have. I for one don't hate you I feel sorry for you that you never really grew up to realize that it is because of people such as these that our over seas dying so that you have the right to protest and throw your weight around. You make me want to vomit. You are all so little and the soldiers tower over each and every one of you. Tonight you best thank the Lord for each and everyone that has given their lives so that you can have all that money and presitige. But in my book you are so very small. One day you all will realize what you have done. Sincerely Jo Ann Langendorfer Iam so glad to be an American!

GOD BLESS PRESIDENT BUSH!!!!GOD BLESS OUR TROOP IN IRAQ!!!!!!!GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!We are the greatest nation in the world. We have a great President and the greatest Military Leader since WW11. My husband served in WW11 and I am proud to say that people from the time of Noah and the Ark, there has been one war after another. This is a man's world and like it or not, our Military men know things that we, as a people, have no clue into. There are many reasons for this war, Saddam's cruelty to his people, his refusal to disarm, Gulf oil, and, however, more reasons that we are not priviy to. This is not about 9--11. This is about a bastard that refused to give up his weapons of mass distruction. His refusal, caused this war. Regardless of past Presidential history, George W. Bush is not his FATHER, he is an idividual placed into power by GOD ALMIGHTY, he has been chosen to destroy Babylon, Bagdad, so the impliment of the Anti-Christ can begin rebuilding his fortress. Religious predjudice aside, George Bush is in a historical period of time. He has to make great and disheatening decisions. We as a nation, should support him in his decisions, he does not make them lightly, nor does he do it rashly, like Johson did with Viet Nam. I am not advocating boycotting the complete entertainment industry. Hollywood, has many great actors who have been in other wars. There are a few, Parkers, Sheens, Penns and others who are protesting the war. There are some in the musical industry, The Dixie Chicks for example who are protesting this war. Not all of Hollywood nor the musical industry are out for our blood because of the war. EVERY AMERICAN has the right to say what he wants. That is his/her constitutional right. I think there are many out in this great land who oppose the war. Many sit in their homes and don't cause any desention, nor do they care, among the people. While the people with money and power can get out and cause riots(war) against the ones who support the war. We don't need another Civil War because of who is right or who is wrong. Can you see the headlines "CIVIL WAR HAS STARTED. HOLLYWOOD VS THE AMERICAN PUBLIC." Now really do we need to fight this policy Hollywood against the American people. Who's to say, who is right or wrong. We all have choice and we all have that right given to us, to protest this, as well as any other war to come, but can't we just protest without a loud voice. Protests cause just as much damage as what is being done in Iraq. Saddam is a bastard coward hiding behind women and children so he won't have to face distruction. Iraq will survive. All Third World Nations will survive their leaders, and be the happier and a more productive people once the COWARD is done away with. I am a grandmother and a mother, and I thank God I don't have any children in the military. I pity the mothers, fathers, and children out there waiting to hear from their loved one in Iraq. Some of these men and women don't want to face the destruction of their lives. They willingly give their life for the freedom of, not only our nation, but that of their belief in what they are doing. No one wants to die. Least of all, to free a country riddled with deceptions and mass destruction of it people. WE are a great nation!! We have a great President!! OUR COLORS ARE THE RED(BLOOD), WHITE(God) AND BLUE(Liberty). WE WERE BUILT ON WAR. The War with Britian, the War with France. We were victorious. We fought the Indian wars and were victorious, we fought the civil war that divided a nation, we fought WW1 and WW11, the Korean War, the Vietnamies war, Desert Storm, and now this one and we will successed. OUR GOD IS GREAT!! OUR PRESIDENT IS GREAT!! OUR COUNTRY IS GREAT!! We have a handful of discenters trying to cause a raucous and trying to change the way we do things. It may make a minor dent in what the populous think. Patti Wells

I support our troops, and I too have relatives in Iraq serving in what I think is a poorly planned and poorly supported military action. The fact that I do live in a country that allows "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" is an awesome priveledge. I will use that "freedom" to say that I do not support the war, but I do support our young men and women in the armed forces. This is too much like Vietnam, and I wish we had either waited for the proof that we needed, or not been so open to the plans...the Iraqi's were ready for our troops, and now we will loose many of our young people...what a shame. I will pray for peace and trust that God will show the way....not the politicians.

Well said! I agree wholeheartedly. I consider their comments about the President to be approaching treason. I fought for their right to protest, as did millions of other servicemen in this country.

Here is a "Strong Message" that I'd so love to share with all of you. This lady tells it like it is: On the week of March 10th, the Shelby County Alabama Legislative Delegation hosted a "Stand Up for America Rally." More than 1,200 people attended including featured speakers Chief Justice Roy Moore, Adjutant General Mark Bowen and Alabama State Auditor Beth Chapman. Attached is a copy of Mrs. Chapman's speech, which resulted in five standing ovations, tremendous applause and an encore. It's a short read and well worth it. I hope you enjoy it as we continue to "Stand up for America!" Stand Up for America Rally Speech By: Beth Chapman I'm here tonight because men and women of the United States military have given their lives for my freedom. I am not here tonight because Sheryl Crowe, Rosie O'Donnell, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Jane Fonda or Phil Donahue, sacrificed their lives for me. If my memory serves me correctly, it was not movie stars or musicians, but the United States Military who fought on the shores of Iwo Jima, the jungles of Vietnam, and the beaches of Normandy. Tonight, I say we should support the President of the United States and the U.S. Military and tell the liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippy, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and music and whine somewhere else. After all, if they lived in Iraq, they wouldn't be allowed the freedom of speech they're being given here today. Ironically, they would be put to death at the hands of Sadam Husssein or Osama Bin Laden. I want to know how the very people who are against war because of the loss of life, can possibly be the same people who are for abortion? They are the same people who are for animal rights but against the rights of the unborn. The movie stars say they want to go to Iraq and serve as "human shields" for the Iraqis. I say let them buy a one-way ticket and go. No one likes war. I hate war! But the one thing I hate more is the fact that this country has been forced into war. Innocent people have lost their lives; and there but for the grace of God, it could have been my brother, my husband, or even worse my own son. There are no records from December 7, 1941, of movie stars treading the blazing waters of Pearl Harbor. There are no photos from September 11, 2001, of movie stars standing as "human shields" against the debris and falling bodies descending from the World Trade Center. There were only policemen and firemen--underpaid civil servants who gave their all, with nothing expected in return. When the USS Cole was bombed, there were no movie stars guarding the ship--where were the human shields then? If America's movie stars want to be human shields, let them shield the gang-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or New York City; let them shield the lives of the children of North Birmingham whose mothers lay them down to sleep on the floor each night to shelter them from stray bullets. If they want to be human shields, I say let them shield the men and women of honesty and integrity that epitomize courage and embody the spirit of freedom by wearing the proud uniforms of the United States Military. Those are the people who have earned and deserve shielding! Throughout the course of history, this country has remained free, not because of movie stars and liberal activists, but because of brave men and women who hated war, too. However, they lay down their lives so that we all may live in freedom. A fter all - "What greater love hath any man, that he lay down his life for his friend," or in this case a country. We should give our military honor and acknowledgement and not let their lives be in vain. If you want to see true human shields, walk through Arlington Cemetery. There lie human shields, heroes, and the BRAVE Americans who didn't get on television and talk about being a human shield--they were human shields. I thank God tonight for freedom . . . those who bought and paid for it with their lives in the past . . . those who will protect it in the present and defend it in the future. America has remained silent too long! God-fearing people have remained silent too long! We must lift our voices united in a humble prayer to God for guidance and the strength and courage to sustain us throughout whatever the future may hold. After the tragic events of Sept. 11th, my then eleven-year-old son said terrorism is a war against them and us, and if you're not one of us, then you're one of them. So in closing tonight, let us be of one accord; let us stand proud; and let us be the human shields of prayer, encouragement and support for the President, our troops and their families and our country. May God bless America, the land of the free, the home of the brave, and the greatest country on the face of this earth!

I totally agree with your message. I believe that what the entertainment industry is doing with their "so-called power" is disturbing. I am against war, just as everyone else is. No one wants war, but here it is and the reason it is here is because we needed to stop a madman from ruining lives. Don't people realize that Saddam is aiding Al Queda and Osama? Don't people realize that these people have made it their life long goal to kill any American they see and to hell with the families left behind? What is so wrong with the American life style. Sure there are people out there who aren't considered good role models for the American dream. But so what. We shouldn't be subjected to torture and anguish simply because these madmen think Americans aren't good enough for them. If they don't like us, don't come here. Don't send your people here, don't do business with us, don't write us or appear on our televisions. Just leave us alone and we'd leave you alone. But that's not what they did so now we must protect the freedom and the rights that we've been given. I support our President, our troops, and our cause. Anyone who doesn't isn't fit to be called an American. The entertainment industry needs to go live in one of these horrible countries for a while and see how the other side lives. Then maybe they'd shut their mouths and stand behind our flag. This is just my opinion,

There are times when silence is the loudest and most awesome noise one can make. I believe this is one of those times. I roundly support this effort to show the entertainment industry that they are wrong when they openly demonstrate against our president and this country and claim that it does not effect or target the brave men and women who are fighting for freedom in Iraq today. IT DOES EFFECT THEM FOLKS! These are our sons and daughters, neices and nephews, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, and our friends who are in harms way. They know only three things and those three things are the same that all who served before them knew: Honor, Duty, Country. They serve this nation and the free world with honor, duty and country first and foremost in mind. They serve in the armed forces of the United States of Amarica and of which there is only ONE commander in chief. To besmirch and insult the commander in chief is no different than slandering these brave men and women. So let us band together here and pledge to boycott the entertainment industry, at least those who speak out so loudly and arrogantly against our president and the war effort. Let us show them as the "Dixie Twits" were shown by staggering losses in record sales after the stupid and insensitive remarks made on stage in London, that there is truly one America and in times of war and turmoil that we should speak with one voice. Let us show them that this nation is a democracy and that freedom of speech is not extended to just the entertainment industry. It is extended as well to the 70+ % of America who believe that while war is the very last option in this or any other controversy, it is now time to remove the free world of the menace known as Saddam Hussein, aka "So Damned Insane" God Bless our troops and our president at this most diffiult time.

They are dead. ............. To BOYCOTT the Hollywood stars - thoughtless act. We in America have freedom of speech. To go against that ideal is to go against who we really are. To be at war in the first place- thoughtless COWARDLY act. >>> "What do we think of a school yard bully? What do we teach a school yard bully.<<< We educate them.

Does that give us the right to Bully, or does it give us the responsibility to educate and lift up others. I see us as a bully and our beautiful land is less beautiful than it once was. I'll repeat another mans words- "I see neither bravery nor sacrifice in destroying life or property for offence or defence" That goes for the property of the Iraqi AND the right to perform and become a star for our American Peaple.

I am truly amazed at those who think time for negotiation and peaceful solutions to this conflict are unlimited. I wish they were folks but they are not. I grieve for every innocent life lost, regardless of nationality. There is a time however when someone must stand up to tyranny and that time is NOW! To those who think there is no tie between the Iraqi regime of Hussein and thd 9-11 disaster, how do you respond to the FACT that Al-Queda soliders are currently fighting in Iraq side by side with the Republican Guard? How do you respond to the FACTS, that A. Mohammed Atta, pilot of the first plane to hit the WTC, lived and trained in Iraq for 1 1/2 years. B. Met with the leader of the Iraqi Intelligence network several times in Iraq and after he moved to Germany. C. Personal effects left in his room on the day of the 9-11 attacks, showed names and addresses of terrorist contacts within several countries, INCLUDING Iraq. War is never easy folks. Innocent people die and unspeakable horror is inflicted on the people involved. However, as stated above, one thing is going to happen that I don't think anyone can find fault with. There will soon come a day when Saddam Hussein is out of power and hopefully VERY DEAD so that he cannot seek assylum in another country and help other rogue and terrorist nations continue terrorism throughout the world. Lord please let that day be today! For those who wish to entertain a direct discussion either in agreement with my thoughts or disagreement. I include my name and E mail address here. Please feel free to contact me and perhaps through a constructive discourse we might find common ground. Maybe we can find comfort in each others thoughts. Thank You. Bobby Ward-

This writer says it all!! Amen! Date: 30 Mar 2003 Time: 10:57:52 Comments I am very proud to be an American too! I do not agree with this war. It is wrong! What happened on 09/11 is terrible! No one has proven that Saddam Hussein was behind that terrible event. He is a villainous leader. There are ways of dealing with that. The U.S. going to war when there is no immanent threat is irresponsible. There is a process that the world community can follow and that is through the U.N. As a nation we are tearing apart all that we have worked hard for over 200 years to build. That we are a nation built on principles that honor the best in the human spirit, and honors God. We have transgressed from commonly accepted international norms in trying to help a captive people. Vengeance begets vengeance. Just because we happen to be a super power at this time in history does not give us the right to abuse that power by inflicting our President's will not just upon Saddam and his regime, but upon the whole world community. The so called wisdom of our present administration is not greater than the collective wisdom of the larger world community that we live in and take part in. The cost of this war will be mind boggling. Thanks to this administration, not even 1 penny has been included in next years budget to assist with the rebuilding of Afghanistan after all of our bombings, not to mention that Mr. Bin Laden is still on the loose. I DO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS. I hope you will be just as convinced in calling upon our president, Mr. Bush to be more reasonable with the budget so that our troops will be cared for in a humane way when they return, especially those wounded and in need of health resources. The president will never be able to "support our troops" by giving huge tax breaks to our wealthiest citizens and also care for our "wounded troops" when they will be in need. There will not be enough monies to provide for their care, as is already evidenced by the lack of care for the troops from the last Gulf War. Yes I am proud to be an American, I do support our troops, but I believe that we are fighting a war that is wrong, because we have gone into it without the support of the rest of the world, and with Great Arrogance. This Self-Serving Pride will come back to haunt us. Also in the mean time, watch our taxes go up to pay for all this. And who wins when our taxes go up? The same people who win when oil proffits hit "their" pockets... and it is not our troops nor the average American that will benifit. Period. Peace eventually, . Giancarlo

Jesus taught Love and Peace. Peace through greater understanding. Anyone see the movie Gandhi. Rent the video and pay attention. He defeated the British with non-violence. The saviours message was clear. You Christians out there ---May God forgive those mindless sheep. Love is the message of the new testament... the mistakes of war were from the old testament... Jesus taught LOVE and PEACE. Before him many wars were fought... The world needed a change as the ways of war were NOT working. Jesus taught Peace and Love. His message was clearly taught to change the mistaken belief that wars were won for God. History is written by the victors... and the Victors are not always right. Look at our criminals who get off because our courts fail to lock them up. Vengance begats vengance. We still have not learned. Appears to me not many of you see what history in the Bible is trying to say. I for one will go to a movie tonight.... and I pray the world will survive this sickening nonsence of killing and injustuce. One final comment. You will pay higher taxes for all this. Your tax dollars make it to the pockets of a "few already rich people"... the "same people who profit from oil" and the "same people who will profit from this war." Bush - is just a puppet on their strings. You and I.... we are wage slaves to a system that hides the truth. We think we work for our take home pay... look at the left side of your pay chech and think again.

The recent rally cry "Support Our Troops" seems to me little more than a perverted, propaganda ploy to "Support the War." But we can support our troops, without supporting the war, by rectifying some of the following conditions. The House of Representatives have recently voted on the 2004 budget which will cut funding for veteran's health care and benefit programs by nearly $25 billion over the next ten years. It narrowly passed by a vote of 215 to 212, and came just a day after Congress passed a resolution to "Support Our Troops." How exactly does this vote support our troops? Does leaving our current and future veterans veterans without access to health care and compensation qualify as supporting them? The Veteran's Administration, plagued by recent budget cuts, has had to resort to charging new veterans entering into its system a yearly fee of $250 in order for them to receive treatment. It is a sad irony that the very people being sent to fight the war are going to have to pay to treat the effects of it. According to the Veteran's Administration, 28 million veterans are currently using VA benefits. Another 70 million Americans are potential candidates for such programs. This amounts to a quarter of the country's population. Veterans and their families will sadly begin finding that they have no place to turn for their medical treatment as V.A. hospitals across the country face closing their doors. With the budget shrinking, staff will be let go. This could mean the loss of over 19,000 nurses. Without these nurses, this leads to the loss of over 6.6 million outpatient visits. Approximately one out of every two veterans could lose their only source of medical care. That is, if they even realize help is available to them. The Bush Administration recently ordered V.A. medical centers to stop publicizing available benefits to veterans seeking assistance. This follows discontinued enrollments of some eligible veterans for healthcare benefits as of January, 2003. Bush Administration funding cuts will also prevent veterans from receiving their disability pensions. My father was granted 100% disability six years ago for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder associated with the Vietnam War. He deserves every cent of it. As do all soldiers who are willing to go to war. Under the Bush administration, being granted the ability to receive war related compensation has become a rare privilege, not a right as it should be. Nearly a third of Gulf War veterans, about 209,000 veterans, have submitted claims to to the VA for disability. The backlog of unprocessed claims has reached the astronomical count of 489,297, a number which is unfortunately increasing all of time. There are also currently 500,000 Compensation and Pension cases still pending. Making matters worse, forty percent of Vietnam Veterans are homeless. They went from the jungles of the war to the jungles of the street. Before President Bush decided to declare war, maybe he ought to have considered correcting this situation first. How many current veterans will return home, only to find themselves in the same situation? I have seen the effects of war written upon the face of a man who grew old at 17. I have seen it in the way he awakes from yet another night terror. I have seen it in the countless pills he has to take. They have only succeeded in erasing his memory, but the images of the war he fought are so graphic that they will never be able to stop playing themselves upon his mind. Even I, his daughter, have not escaped unscathed. Exposure to the chemical Agent Orange has left me with several genetic problems, including growth problems and digestive ones. I fear that these current soldiers will be exposed to toxins that will not only affect them, but their future offspring as well. And today we are told that we must "Support Our Troops." "Wear a yellow ribbon, wave your flag, support the Bush Administration's War on Terror and War on Iraq." Questioning the war is equated with deserting our troops or treason. And yet how are the warmongers supporting our troops? By eliminating their healthcare and slashing their pensions. Let us support the warrior without supporting the war. Ashley L Decker

I am an American and I'm not ashamed of it. I have had a son and a daughter in two separate wars plus a son-in-law. I have had an Uncle killed in defending Germany, I might add----plus 2 other Uncles that were in WWII. My Husband also served in this war plus in Korean war. I have had 2 Brothers that served. I resent the fact that my family have served and Americas' finest is serving now----over in Araq now--to save the butts of these sorry individuals who doesn't even have the decency to stand up and support them and our country and President. I think that they should not bother to even lock these pitiful individuals up but just saddle them up and drop them over there with Saddam or Bin Laden or old Kadaffe(and that might not even be spelled right but it is most definitely thought right). Also these Actors and Actresses, who have the gall to stand up against our country-I wonder who that they think made them what they are and who can take their sorry behinds down, just as easy. Nine-tenths of them sure aren't relying on their talent. I wonder who they thought brought the World Trade Center down and so many were killed and some were friends and family. I say, if you don't like this country or our Democratic way of life, than just get your sorry tail out of here. No one wants you and it is ashame that you even have to be here. I support Our Troops, Our country, our Government and Our President. I Believe in Pledging Allegiance to the Flag. I Believe--In God We Trust--And I Believe in the Ten Commandants and I Believe in God and His Amazing Grace. He is still in Control. May God help you--As Our Savior died on the cross, He said, "Forgive them Father, they know not what they do" and Lord, I hope they learn one day that we have the greatest country on earth to live in and the most loving--in the majority of the inhabitants of this great land.

Crusaders know that it is better to control people and nations with the scientific application of fear and lies rather than the more unpredictable and expensive methodology of bullets and bombs. So forty years ago, the CIAís, ďOperation Mockingbird,Ē went into full swing. The goal of the program was simply to control all mechanisms of opinion - the print news, the public opinion polls and the television news media. Their thinking was, if you control what people think, youíve won the war before it has even begun........................... And they have been frighteningly successful at achieving their goal - Since the 1950ís all major news and polling organizations have, to one degree or another, been absorbed into the sphere of control of the intelligence agencies. Now, the hard truth, which is simply too fantastic for most people to believe much less even comprehend in the first place is that the major news media is in actuality, mind controlling, opinion forming, population control mechanisms, and little else. Look how controled we have become. This page needs our support just like this wonderful site too. Lets make America free.

General Douglas MacArthur, in describing the policies of the United States Government in the post-World War II era said... "Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear ≠ kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervour ≠ with the cry of grave national emergency. Always, there has been some terrible evil at home, or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it." NO, THESE ARE not the words of an Iraqi defector lashing out at the Saddam Hussein regime nor from someone making a case for political asylum. Far from it. These words were actually uttered in 1957 by no less an authority than the celebrated American, General Douglas MacArthur, in describing the policies of the United States Government in the post-World War II era. And MacArthur should have known. Not only was he the commander of Allied troops in the Pacific during World War II, but he also supervised the postwar occupation of Japan and led United Nations forces during the Korean War. But, has anything changed? The General could easily have been describing the U.S. Government of today. Under President George W. Bush, the U.S. has been trying to convince the world community since last year that Iraq poses a major threat to world peace and has to be disarmed by the use of military force. No matter that there was hardly anything by way of evidence to support the claim, the Bush administration was adamant that Iraq possessed what it described as weapons of mass destruction and was a part of "an axis of evil." This lady (if in fact this was written by a lady... I suspect it could have even be a bush admin aid) who wrote this has been sucked in by the media and the lies... just like everyone who supports ...(her?)

May God forgive us mindless sheep. Love is the message of the new testament... the mistakes of war were from the old testament... Jesus taught LOVE and PEACE. Before him many wars were fought... Jesus' message was clearly taught to change that. We still have not learned. Appears to me not many of you see what history in the Bible is trying to say. Reason, not force.

I have lost all respect for the majority of those who make their living as actors and actresses. They need to stick with fantasy and let the real heros of our country do what they do best. I shall not visit the movies in the next month or the next year. I am sure Iraq would love to have them in their country. Should the think that to be a good idea I might remind them that the existing regime there would execute them as they detest all that Hollywood stands for.

I for one have been very aware of the mistreatment and evil deeds of Saddam for a long time, those people need to be set free from the oppression they have had to endure all these years. And I for one am very thankfull we have a president wise enough to know that these people are trying to prepare to rise up against us with WMD's... As for Hollywood, well now we are seeing just how self centered they really are! No skin off my back not to go to the movies, if other men and women can lay down their life that I can be free and for the freedom of others then I can play a board game for a few months... Tina

Mr. Barry Dennett from Australia, put the shoe on the other foot. What if you had lost a loved one in the twin towers? Do you realize approximately 2000 people lost their innocent lives in that attack? What are we suppose to do? Say, "That's terrible, but don't do that again!" How many people are suppose to die because a cruel dictator has the run of the land? As for Hollywood..I am disgusted that their arrogance has given way to stupidity. When you get so far removed from the troubles of live, you begin thinking you know what's best. They do have their right of freedom of speech. However, there should be a little more restrain given the fact they have access to so many vulnerable lives. I do agree peace is a much better way. But, sometimes you have to root out evil before peace has a chance. Here's another number for you...approximately 50,000 people died in Basra after we left there the first time because they helped the US in the Gulf War against Saddum. That evil man killed his own innocent people. I don't blame the Iraqi people for asking us to leave. No one wants to die that way. President Bush is doing the best he can. I am proud to be an American who believes in fighting evil. God Bless our troops....please don't forget to pray for President Bush and our men and women over seas. Jane McManis

I appreciate the fact that you put this site together so that all people, Americans and others can comment on how they feel about the war. I, for one, am in full support of our brave men and women who fight for our freedom every day. I support our fine President and all that he is trying to accomplish. I do, however, feel that we have lost sight on one fact. If we bring down the regime of Saddam, we have still left Bin Laden out there. If we bring him down too, there are others who will pick up where they left off. We have been fighting over religion for thousands of years and nothing is going to stop that. So, we can knock down the terrorist structures but there will be another hater of free state to come around again and threaten our security. In regards to what the celebrities are doing with their rights of free speech....I feel that everyone has the right to say what they feel about the President, however, the men and women over there had no choice to go. Just like the men and women who fought in the Vietnam war, they have no choice. They are doing what we pay them to do and that is to defend the country and to help other countries wipe out terrorism. So, if you don't support the President's actions, that is your opinion, but don't talk badly about the soldiers over there fighting for freedom. This is what they trained for. And I pray for them and for their safe return....

Actors and Actresses (not all) have long been useful idiots for the cause of anti-Americanism. Why don't these same anti-Americans go to Baghdad and be a human shield? Could it be the wimps and wimpettes won't have a stunt man in front of them? They have to read from Scripts for a living so they are not allowed to speak their own words. They have to be directed in their moves, so they can't do what they want. These people can't even speak and move on their own, which means they have to get their opinions from someone else too. Hollywood has long been used of Communism and left wing Socialists for the purpose of the destabilization of American values. People like Rosie O'Donnell,Woody Harrelson, and "Hanoi Jane" are nothing but useless to those who possess a mind with abilities to think. America's history is written on the pages of miraculous history and built upon the Bible. Their stories are written in the National Enquirer. Think about it! Not only would a Boycott of the movies be proper, but also DVD's and Video rentals which yields more than the movies in long term residuals. Unfortunately, some Americans will boycott the theatre and then go out and rent videos of the same move when it comes out. Let the dust remain on the videos as a testimony to true American unity. - Dr. Ken Matto

Great idea! We will boycott movies as well. This is not a revenge attack as so many lable this war...I think our leaders of this country have sound judgement and have made educated decisions about this action. They are not stupid men and women. Included in this wise and bold attack are solid reasons that probably cannot be revealed to us "opinionated" citizens to protect us from ourselves. If you are really interested in the politics of the Middle East and this dictator's power and motives, research it. I would bet that you would walk away from your research a little more enlightened about the possible reasons for this war...including the connections to 9/11! Just think about the power and money involved in the oil there...hello! What our country really needs right now is support of our military families that are at home worrying while their loved ones protect and defend! Get on that wagon and apply your time & efforts to something really worthy! Oh, and to all who comment about the Christian ideas and about war in the Bible...read it before you comment!

If people do what this woman wants another industry in our country would be crippled. Not a good idea! Hollywood employs many more comman people than famous actors. Even though I disagree with what she is saying she has every right to say it. I'm not in favor of a war not sanctioned by the U.N., however I do think the U.N. should be behind us. I also feel if the job had been finished last time we wouldn't have to be there again. A lot of Iraqi people who helped us out last time were left hanging when we pulled out. Could that be why they don't seem so eagar to trust us this time around? I think the most important thing is that we support our troops and their families.

Dear fellows Americans, I am visiting my Lover in Quebec, Canada. From this perspective, I see how some people are horrified that we are at war. There seems to be a negative slant to the United States, bit surprisingly, it is not overwhelming as some Hollywood bums might wish you to believe. Like all people of the world, except 1% of 1%, I hate war. It is a dirty, deadly, and political tool. That being said, my prayers, my thoughts, my hopes, are for the complete, total, absolute, victory. These young men, and women, who are doing their jobs, which includes losing their lives. They give their lives so trash like The Dixie Chicks can live. They give their lives so we can have too much and appreciate too little, the bounty of our lives and our country. To show anything but the highest regard for the young people, in Iraq, is to spit on yourself, your country, all that has been GIVEN to you. For your grandchildren, nieces, nephews, children, husbands, and wives, who are at war, in support, or standing-by ready to do their job "God bless erach one of them". My name is Glenn Scheer, and if someone can help me, I would like to be able to send e-mails to support our troops. Write me at

I was sorry to see that you did not feel strongly enough to sign your name. Having said that, I agree with much of what you said. I think we need to remember that what we are fighting for is the very thing that give American citizens the right to protest. With protest comes responsiblility. Hollywood stars command a strong platform and can do great harm if they choose. Most do not, however a few make most Americans sick to their stomachs. I plan to disregard those who "BAD MOUTH" our country and not to spend my money on, or support, those who do; including buying products, going to movies they are in, attending concerts, etc. I also feel that those who are not American citizens have no right to protest in my country.

i feel for all the brave men and women who are at this very moment risking their lives, for me and every other american, who get up each morning and get the privilage to walk around and do what we feel free to do. How dare anyone critize them for giving us this peace of mind, of knowing they are there to protect us from these terrorist!! they love this country, they have family here, they remember Sept. 11th, who could forget those who were terrorised on that day. they are over there to try to ensure that terror never hits our home again. AND TO THOSE OF YOU WHO FEEL WE SHOULD LEAVE PUNISHMENT UP TO JUDGEMENT DAY; so, in your opinion, this would also mean the many crimanals in our own country should still be running free, free to rape, rob, kidnap our children, kill, or anything their hearts desires. I am sorry, i don't believe you can stand by and let evil people do as they will. I AM SO PROUD OF THE BRAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE FIGHTING TO RID THE EARTH (NOT JUST AMERICA) OF SUCH EVIL PEOPLE AS SUDDAM. he is no different than HITLER!! HE IS A CRIMINAL!!!! and he needs to be dealt with!! THERE WILL NOT BE ANY PEACE WITH A MAD MAN LIKE HIM IN CONTROL!! all these protesters want peace, and believe me, so do I, but i don't call days like SEPT 11th peace. There are a lot of things in this world and in this country we all don't like, but you have to do, what you have to do, and we have to support our troops!!! GOD BLESS AND BE WITH ALL OUR BRAVE MEN AND WOMAN, and the family that awaits their safe return, and to all that have already felt the sacrifice of a loved one, my heart goes out to you, May GOD comfort you and bless you!! mmg, OHIO

I do agree with your comments. Let us be more specific which movies we boycott. It would serve a better purpose if the movies boycotted are the movies that this so-called "famous" stars are starring in. They do not deserve the honor. Our troops do. I happened to be a recipient of a soldiers letter to his Mom who is serving our country in this current war. I would like to pass it along for everyone to read. It may just give a better perspective. Read on. . . "A California mother whose son is right now in Kuwait poised to knock Saddam's block off, wrote her son asking how he would feel if she joined other relatives of service members in an anti-war demonstration in Hollywood last month. After reading her son's response, she elected not. Dear Mom: It's really your decision to march if you want to or not. You are the one who has to decide if what we are doing out here is right or not. My opinion is not yours. I do, however, have things I would like for you and Grandma and everyone else at home to know. I am a United States soldier. I was sworn to defend my country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. People may not agree with the things we are ordered to do. I would like to address those people by telling them that terrorism is not only a threat to us as Americans, but to many other innocent people in the world. What type of country would we be if we didn't defend the rights and freedoms of others, not because they're Americans, but how about just because they're human? We live in a country where people feel secure with their daily lives. They do business like usual and don't worry about the thought of terrorism actually happening to them. The people of 9-11 thought the same thing. We now know that it can happen to anyone at any time. Yet as Americans we're afraid of losing our soldiers to defend our security. I can only speak for myself when I say that my life is an easy expense to ensure that my family and friends can live in peace. I strongly believe in what we are doing and wish you were here to see for yourselves the honor and privilege that American soldiers aboard this ship are feeling, knowing that we are going to be a part of something so strong and so meaningful to the safety of our loved ones. Then you would know what this potential war is about. We will stand tall in front of terrorism and defeat it. We as soldiers are not afraid of what may happen. We are only afraid of Americans not being able to understand why we are here. I ask for your courage as Americans to be strong for us; I ask for your understanding in what we believe is right. I ask for your support in what we are sworn to do: defend our country and the life of all. We will succeed in our task and will end the threat of terrorism in our back yard. We will also end the threat of terrorism in our neighbors'. We have to remind ourselves of what this country stands for: life, liberty and justice for all. In order to maintain those rights we have to stop the threat of terrorism. I am proud to be here. I will be coming home, but not until I know that it's going to be safe for all Americans and for everyone I love. My family is first. My country is where they live. I will defend it Lonnie J. Lewis Navy corpsman C Co. 1/4 WPN PLT UIC 39726 FPO AP 966139726 P.S. Mom, please send this to everyone who has a hard time understanding why we are here. Ask the paper to put what I've said in a column so that others will know why we are here and what we are here for. I love you all and will be home soon. I left my address so that if anyone feels like writing to let me know how they feel, they can." Hope we fellow Americans would stand tall and give these soldiers a standing ovation for what they are doing to ensure our freedon and peace that we all enjoy. A reader in California

I have not been to a movie in years because I do not want to support the very people who mis-guide our children with what they call a form of entertainment. Now all the more reason not to support the entertainment industry. The Jane Fonda's of Viet Nam and now the so called Hollywood entertainers who do drugs, have marriages that don't mean anything, divorces, behavior that is questionable etc, and they direct this to our way of Life? They direct this to our Children? The very children who are our future? I'd rather sit at home with my friends laughing, barbequeing, playing card games, board games, working on a project together, taking walks, shopping, working on my home, in my garden. Let's do more family visiting and visiting with friends and give less money to the people who get rich off us while we sit in our small conservative homes.

I love a good movie as well as the next guy but will not watch,buy or rent ANYTHING made by those who speak against my country. That is MY freedom of speech...so be it !I also will not purchase anything made in France,Canada or any other country not on our side.Again MY freedom of speech...

AMEN! My husband is in the United States Navy and by God's grace he is able to be in the U.S. at this time! However, that isn't to say he is home much. It makes me sick to think that should he be called into battle he would be going on behalf of people of whom you speak. When I am reminded of those who do not support our military it makes me somewhat resentful to think that my life and that of my children are changed at least every two years. We just get good friends and settle into life and here we go again, moving on for the good of the country. I like to think of those who appreciate the sacrifices every military family makes on a daily basis even without war going on. SHAME ON YOU IF YOU ARE GUILTY OF ACTING UNBECOMING OF A U. S . CITIZEN! Maybe you'd prefer to be a shield for our men and women willing to give their lives so you can have the freedom to protest their efforts! We do not go to movies and we seldom rent them but you can bet we won't be supporting Hollywood in any way at all anymore!!! It is my personal belief that we are too focus our time and money on Jesus Christ, the son of God. So I send a challenge to those of you who are giving up on Hollywood to consider using that money to minister to a soldiers family in some way. Perhaps adopt a military family and minister to their needs created by this war ie. supplies for care packages, postage for the same, food, clothing, ect should they now be faced with hard times monetarial. There is so much we can do as one nation under GOD so come on true AMERICANS lets take care of our soldiers and our President and his advisors and cover them with prayers galore!!! From the heart of a military wife for 20 years and who appreciates EVERYTHING our military has done and continues to do for us! My heart breaks for you who have lost loved ones and for those who are now seperated by this war from their families. May you find strength from above. N.C. N. Charleston, South Carolina

I too am a mom of a U.S. military soldier, a Special Forces member. My son has not as yet been deployed because he is finishing his training this week. I am trying to prepare myself for when the time comes, as I know it will. He along with most of his fellow soldiers will tell you he has a job to do and that is to protect the freedom of the American people. One of the things I always tell my son is that where ever he might be and the need arises, to remember that his Mama is praying for him. I pray for his safety, strength and peace - as well as his fellow military members. As a mom I know that I cannot be there to protect my adult child but I know someone who can - THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! It upsets me to see Hollywood or anyone else against our troops defending our nation, especially since I know my son and many others may have to lay down their life on the line for what is right and even for the anti-war groups' right to say what they feel. Moms unite in praying for our military sons and daughters, I WILL!!!!!!!!!! MAY GOD BLESS THE USA!

THANK YOU FOR HAVING A PAGE THAT GOOD UP STANDING AMERICANS CAN VOICE THEIR OPINONS. MY FATHER FOUGHT IN WWII TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DISAPPOINTED IN PEOPLE LIKE THE ONES IN HOLLYWOOD. I AM A NURSE THAT HAS SEEN THE POVERTY IN THIS COUNTRY AND IT SICKENS ME WHEN PEOPLE WITH THE MEGA AMOUNTS OF MONEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO WONDER WHERE YOUR NEXT MEAL WILL COME FROM. YET THESE SAME PEOPLE WILL BAD MOUTH THE ONES WHO GIVE THEM RIGHT TO BE FREE AND MAKE THEIR MONEY. ANYONE CAN ACT, BUT IT TAKES VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO GIVE THEIR LIVES TO ENSURE OUR FREEDOOM AND THE FREEDOM OF OTHERS. I AM EVER SO GRATEFUL TO OUR MILITARY AND PRAY FOR THEM EVERYDAY. AS FOR THE STARS, I DO NOT GO THE MOVIES NOR DO I WATCH THEM ON TV. I HOPE THAT IN SOME WAY WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE TRUE AMERICAN WE CAN BRING THEM DOWN A COUPLE OF NOTCHES. OR MAYBE WE CAN PUT THEM ALL ON A PLANE AND SEND THEM TO THE FRONT LINES. ANOTHER THOUGHT, YOU NEVER HEARD A WORD FROM THEN WHEN BILL SENT TROOPS TO AFGANISTAN. ANYWAY THE OLD SAYING WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND IS VERY TRUE. WE'LL SEE. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS, OUR PRESIDENT, THE TRUE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE UNITED STATES. D. KAIN, RAYMOND, MS.

Thank you for your statement! I have my neighbor's spouse and two nephews fighting in Iraq. I come from a family that sent three of my brothers to fight in WWII and the Korean War. War isn't my first choice but sometimes we aren't given a choice. We all have the right to enjoy our Freedom but Freedom doesn't come free. If we want to continue to enjoy our American Liberties as we know them, then we must support our troops. They are fighting for not only Iraq's liberation but for our own freedom. My family will most certainly avoid the movies for the next month or so with no problem whatsoever. Those in positions of power, in positions that children look up too must take their positions seriously and remember the responsibilities that are on their shoulders. They influence the minds of many and turning their backs on the American Flag should not be an act that should be taught by anyone in power. We all must support our troops, believe if you think those men and women are do not feel unloved by those who rally against them and the American Flag you are all sorely mistaken. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS THE TROOPS!

I agree with her thoughts and support, however, if she feels so strongly about her comments, why doesn't she sign her name? Our entertainers are using their name and also believe in what they stand for. They have as much right to their oppinion, even if I disagree. Why would I choose to boycot someone for having a different oppinion then me? Why is this woman calling for a nation wide boycot yet not willing to stand behind it with her name?

It was so uplifting to be around people who shared my views on this situation!! Whether or not you think this is a 'just' war, the troops and their families need our love and support. One man, driving by as we waved our signs, gave us the 'thumbs down' gesture.... We just yelled after him, "That's all right...they'll fight for YOUR rights, too!!!"

I agreed with you 100%. You have read my mind and feel my heart. I like you am very dissapointed about the entertainment group in our country. It's very easy for them to oppose to a cause when they are very confortable in every way. Their status does not give them the right to be that way in a very delicate and crutial time for the rest of all. They have not lost anyone in 9/11; they have not been persecuted; they do not starve for food, clothes or money; and I am sure they do not have anyone in the army, marines or up front. At least, they should realized that our soldiers are doing what they sweard to do to protect our country and alll of us including them. I respect difference of opinions but their voices have been gone to far. If we want to grow as a country we have to stick together for the right and good causes, otherwise we will be going down the drains slowly and surely. This is a right and good cause. Terrorists need to be finished to be able to live in a peaceful way. terrorists are finishing with many countries such as South American, Europe and they would love to finish our country. LET'S SUPPORT PRESIDENT BUSH,OUR TROOPS AND PRAY FOR THEM!!!!

I guess being a kid during WWII and everyone being so patriotic it is hard for me to understand that even if they are against the war they should at least be proud of being an American and all the freedoms that we enjoy. I hate that the media shows these demonstrations so that the world thinks that is how we all feel. I have noticed that you don't see all the groups fixing CARE packages and putting yellow and red,white& blue ribbons up is support of our troops and also our government. I guess too many of our generation have passed on and apparently the younger people haven't really witnessed and grown up with the feeling. They should see from the media how other countries treat their people. In Hollywood, they behave very differently from the "big" stars in WWII who actively fought and won medals for bravery.

I am all for the boycotting of hollywood, the only problem is that the actors have already gotten paid. Not going to the theater doesn't do anything to them. It makes the theaters loose money and then they, in turn, will not be able to support thier employees. Just like the dumping of french wine. That wine was already paid for. That was nothing but a waste of a good bottle of wine. Don't get me wrong I support this was whole heartedly. I know this is the right thing to be doing. We just need to come up with a better way. Like writing or calling the companies that put their commercials on the TV shows that we watch. Tell them we will no longer buy the products the offer if they continue to buy spots on those shows. Their must be a better way then to hurt innocent people along the way.

Subject: ONE Aussies point of view. I am probably going to start a different kind of war with my comments, and will probably get shot down in flames, but...here goes. First of all, as a proud Australian, I wholeheartedly support Bush, Blair and Howard in their endeavours, whatever the ulterior motive may be (and believe me, there IS one!) because at the end of it all, one way or another, the most evil man in the world will be gone. But I do not support the way they are going about doing this. I believe this war is really about Money and Power (isn't every war??) and the Iraqies freedom is secondary, but THAT will be the bonus for the ones who are left and who want it. Is this a case where 'The End Justifies the Means?' I feel very deep pride, love and sympathy for EVERY single serviceman doing his or her duty, Not just the Americans. Our TV coverage here (SBS, ABC, World News) mentions the Americans almost exclusively, the British sometimes, and the Australians hardly ever. Britian and Australia are relatively small countries when compared with America, but we are giving up our service men and women on the same scale as America, and will suffer the same hardships and losses as you. But between us all, we will not come anywhere near the suffering that is being, and will be experienced, by the Iraqi people. We have also made our peaceful country a future target for retribution, in only God knows what form, by joining this war. The problems in Iraq and like countries, have been there since forever and I find it hard to believe, that with all the Intelligence forces and the excellent technology your great country has available, (spies, undercover agents, satelites etc,) that Saddam Husein and his henchmen, could not have been annihalated without resorting to a full scale invasion, which will most certainly have repercussions for years to come and divide the world. If this doesn't turn into a World war, I'll be very surprised, and the losses sustained are going to be greater than any of you are now imagining. America cannot look after it's own poor, destitute and underpriviledged now, so how IS America going to manage a few million more??? Every American, every Brit, every Aussie is going to pay...long after the war is finished (if ever) until the reasons behind it are just a dim memory and we are sick to death of paying. As far as not watching movies anymore because of a few Hollywood stars comments, I feel that is a childish and futile act (like...if you say something to upset me, then I won't play with you anymore) but if people feel that is a noble thing to do, then that is their perogative. There are a few absolute bastard actors that I detest, but if the role they play, (and the movie) is a good one...then I will watch it. To me, that is a trivial matter and there are much more important things to be concerned about, and to put our energies into. You are worried about the influence the entertainment industry is having on your children; I would be more worried about the influence this war WILL have on them and the hatred it WILL breed. Have these Hollywood actors, who dared to voice their opinion against yours, said to you, "You don't agree with my opinion, I don't want you watching my movies, so YOU leave America." ?? I have read EVERY single comment on these 2 pages (has anyone else?) and feel that the minority who have replied against the majority, must be Australians, as they are talking sense and don't appear to be brainwashed into believing everything that is being reported. Please, people, put this in it's proper perspective and realise that these actors who have upset you so, are only people with an opinion and a different point of view. EVERYBODY is entitled to that, (no matter what it may be and without being told to leave the country) and remember, there are people who can justify a war, and there are people who can't even handle the thought of war in any circumstance. Who's right and who's wrong??? IN WAR, THERE ARE NO WINNERS and everybody concerned will pay a price. My only hope is that the cost is not too great to bear, and my empathies go to ALL the people who will be left to grieve. The hand that rocks the cradle gets left holding the baby.

If the Hollywood anti-war protesters were so serious about the welfare of the civilian children and families, why don't they donate some of their millions to these people? They talk big, but should put their money where their " Big Mouths" are. We middle to low class people are the ones who keep them in the lifestyle they're used to. Why don't they use some of their money to enrich the lives of these torchered and freedomless people. Their is only one answer. They are arrogant, rich and spoiled and p--- away their money when it could be used for good. They're so above us, they forget who pays for their extravagant lifestyles. Without us, they wouldn't be able to pay thousands of dollars for those dresses they wear at those awards shows.

I have always thought that the entertainment media has undue influence on the general public. We (the general public) are too busy making a life for ourselves and loved ones to be campaigning our opinions worldwide. Of course we know that not many would listen even if we did have that opportunity. I too beleive in the right to have one's own opinion, but the entertainment media has undue influence when stating theirs! I feel that it is a part of their profession....being the center of attention, that is the reason for their actions. True, they aren't more educated than us, but they do have more outlets, influence and audience for what they are saying. As for avoiding the movies...consider it done. cb of MI

Honestly --- I do believe ALL AMERICANS have the right to express his/her opinion - and gagging one group is really un-american. No one is holding a gun to one's head to make them listen to whomever is speaking. As for boycotting - that is everyone's right to do or no. As President Theodore Roosevelt said in 1918 -- "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." My prayers are with you -for the safe return of all of our loved ones, including my own son.

Yes, I agree... Patriotic Americans must BOYCOTT Hollywood. Stop going to the movies and stop renting the movies unless the films are made in the 1940's and 1950's. We had patriotic actors and actresses in those days. All this dissent and protesting is treasonable. We are at war with a vicious enemy and these protestors are committing treason and sedition and should be rounded up and names taken and they should be put in camps for traitors. Many of the protestors have been duped. They dont know anything. Lenin had a name for them "Useful Idiots". Many of these protests are organized by native Communists. Where is JOe Mc Carthy when we need him most. Once we have their names, their passports should be ripped up, their citizenship stripped away and they should be sent to live in the middle east, Cuba, Vietnam or Korea. They dont belong here in the USA. Thats alll I have to say. MICHAEL GEREMIA ORLANDO, FL.

I have responded once but want to add to it. If you want to bad mouth this great country of freedom move from here. Get you nasty butt out of this country. If we weren't such a great country why would so many wnat to come here. Just ask some of the refugees how precious American freedom is. My son-in-law served in Desert Storm and I have close friends with sons there now. Hurray for those with the fortitude to serve our country and God bless each and everyone that is in the military. We pray for you daily as well as for our President. Jane't HErmann Kent. WA

Thank you for putting into words the feelings shared by so many of us. It amazes me some of the comments being made by the "celebrities." They have definitely gotten caught up in their fictitious roles! Each day another one seems to be added to my list of shows I refuse to watch because of the lack of support and respect they have for our country.

I am always a bit leery of people who make broad and general comments. Although like you I support or troops and their cause, I also believe that each person has the right to express their opinion, even if they disagree with mine. That's one of our most basic freedoms. I am sure you are aware that not all of Hollywood is anti-war. If you don't like what some Hollywood types are saying or doing, then certainly you have the freedom and right to ignore their movies, TV shows, their concerts and songs or anything else you want to ignore. Personally I select who and what I am going to ignore. I also have stopped buying French and German products whenever possible. I agree we must support our troops at home and abroad. But please recognize they are fighting to give Iraqi's the freedom to make the same decisions you are asking us to make. Not all Iraqi's are our enemies and not all of Hollywood are peace-niks. May God watch over our service men and women! An Army "Brat" and patriotic American from the Midwest!

I whole heartedly support the position to boycott the movies. They are mostly not fit to see anyway. I support anyones right to their opinion as you do; but, I think now is a time to keep opposing opinions to ourselves and support our troops. Not only does this hurt their morale but it gives fodder to Saddam Hussein who doesn't have a clue as to how our country works. And since the UN didn't back our position, these comments could put Americans visiting and working in other countries at risk. I also am boycotting TV programs such as West Wing.

As a student of history and avid reader of military history in general I canít help but shake my head in wonder at the American anti war groups. Do these people read or take the time to at least look into some of the historical background of past and present conflicts? I think not. On September 11, 2001, I arrived at the World Trade Center after having done a midnight shift in my precinct. (19th Precinct). A sergeant and eight cops had left several minutes before in a van. A lieutenant and myself (also a sergeant) grabbed the first marked car that we could. Unfortunately three firemen from the adjacent firehouse jumped in with us as their truck had already left. We arrived at West and Vescey Streets just minutes before the collapse. What happened next is well documented. Two of the firefighters with me were lost; they were never seen again. The Lieutenant and myself witnessed the inferno and the people jumping we also witnessed both collapses from a spectacular viewpoint at the base of the Towers. Thru the grace of God we both survived. I had been acquainted with the Oasama Bin Laden situation before this happened by making it a point to keep abreast of what was going on. In the same manner I made it a point to follow events in Iraq. After September 11 I made it a passion to study these individuals as well other events in that region. In today's world it seems that knowledge is a dirty word. Much better to listen to an actress or pop star who in a fifteen-second sound byte sums up their anti war knowledge with "Like wow. War is sooooo uncool." I 'd like to drag these people by their necks to the NYC Morgue and have them view the twenty odd thousand or so body parts of the innocents that were murdered in a most vile manner. But I guess that would be "like...sooooo uncool." History has shown us that despots like Hitler and Stalin could have been stopped dead in their tracks. If people of that era had taken the time to acquaint themselves of the facts. Much like today...I feel Saddam would have been gone a long time ago. For this American knowledge and the horror of what I saw and lived thru that day has lit a fire. I cannot describe the seething anger that I lived with in the months following the attack. (I call it "the attackĒ. liberal media types call it "the tragedy"). Today I live with a cool detachment of knowing in my heart what must be done. I don't know who said it but "Revenge is a dish best served when cold". In educating myself before, during, and after it seems to me that of the groups I have mentioned (Bin Laden and Saddam) do have a connection one would work hand in hand with the other if allowed the opportunity. These people seek nothing less than the total destruction of America and Israel. They know as all terrorists know that if that can't beat us on the field of battle that having us live in terror is a victory just as sweet. This past week there was a student anti war protest at Hunter College. The facility is adjacent to my station house. I was not there but listened to later news reports. In interviewing one young female she stated that basically "war is bad and people will get killed". I laughed to myself thinking. I expect that from a six year old. Not a college student. How lame is that answer. Another equally lame answer is "Bush wants their oil". Are these people kidding me? Are kids that naive? I think not. I think if they used their brains and did a little independent research they would see the answers right in front of their faces. As a freshman in college at St. John's University we were witness to our embassy in Iran being stormed and Americans being held hostage. (Our statesmen emeritus Jimmy Carter seems to have forgotten that one. If he had a spine as President he would've adjudicated that situation with a "smack down"). We didn't have anti war protests or peace rallies. We had pro war rallies and carried signs that said, "Bomb the Ayatollah". We chanted "USA all the Way!" We wore buttons that said "Iran Sucks". I still have a button with another slogan on it unfortunately it refers to the slang word of sexual intercourse and Iran...so I won't spell that one out. Where has righteous indignation one? I guess that is incorrect politically. I did not plan on this letter being so long so forgive me if I digress. Where were we? Ohh yes. France! And Germany! And we cannot leave out Russia. I well refer to this grouping henceforth as "Turd World Nations". Knowledge. That dirty word again. Has shown me that the Turd World Axis is up to their respective necks in their government/economic dealings with Saddam. The "buck" or I should say "eurodollar" is the bottom line here. With Saddam removed they will be out many many "euros". My feeling is that if you lie down with dogs you get fleas. If you do business with a dirt bag expect to get screwed down the line. The French have made billions trading with the "Big Mustache" and donít want to see their truffle train derailed. As a voicer in the Daily News said last month."Who needs the French anyway? We want to win. Not surrender." The French nation is exactly like their poodles. They jump around, make a lot of noise, and will eventually skulk away if you ignore them Well Mr. O'Reilly I'm tired now. This letter was meant to be short and sweet. I don't even know if you will even see it. But it feels good to get some of this out. Knowledgeable Americans know what the story is. I support our President and our Country to the hilt. Itís just unfortunate that a cranky twenty-two year vet of the NYPD doesn't have media access like Susan Sarandon and the rest of the Hollywood lemmings. Or perhaps Quisling is a better word. Knowledge has taught me who Quisling was. Their lack of it leads them to believe that itís probably just a new vogue martini. I just thank God that we have people like you who will educate and speak out for the guys like me in the shadows.

How proud you should be to have the guts to speak your mind. A a Viet-Nam vet, I know only to well how a soldier feels about protests on the homefront. While people do have the right to speak their mind, I wish they would consider the feelings of the people who are protecting those rights. They have no idea how their negative remarks affect the men and women who have put their lives on the line. The feelings generated by these people with influence, will never go away. The men and women who proudly served their country will privately carry shame and guilt, because of such negative actions. TEH PEOPLE THAT SPREAD THIS PROPAGANDA SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!!

The House of Representatives have recently voted on the 2004 budget which will cut funding for veteran's health care and benefit programs by nearly $25 billion over the next ten years. It narrowly passed by a vote of 215 to 212, and came just a day after Congress passed a resolution to "Support Our Troops." How exactly does this vote support our troops? Does leaving our current and future veterans without access to health care and compensation qualify as supporting them? Suppot our troops. YES. But if Bush is not supporting them, why do you support Bush? I'm going to a movie.

You don't want my comments! A woman who is proud to be an American--but not proud enough to use her name..I'm proud to be an American--and do not support an appointed president in an illegitimate war--he should support our troops by bringing them home! Saddam is evil--but he was NOT responsible for 9/11. Whatever happened to Osama? If you can't find Osama, bomb Iraq! I find it very interesting that the countries in the middle east are far more afraid of Dubya than of Saddam--and they're the ones who should know! I applaud the actors who have the nerve to buck their conservative studios and stations to express their concerns and their views--and again, find it interesting that the only ones ho are being picked on a missive such as this one are the ones who dare criticise this war or this unelected president--no one seems to be talking about boycotting Bruce Willis, for example... Kudos to Martin Sheen, Jessica Lange, Michael Moore, and everyone else who has the courage to disagree with this administration. I just hope they don't lose their jobs--like actors did during the McCarthy era... a frightening comparison indeed.

I haven't gone to the movies in several years because I have been boycotting the obscene salaries made by a great many of the actors. It is true that our young people view them as America's royalty and are truly influenced by what "the stars" have to say. What a sad state of affairs. I've never watched the West Wing but since it is such a highly rated show, I'm sure many do watch it. Surely hope they think twice about watching it now. Hollywood just can't seem to connect the dots between 911, Saddam and the other Arab leaders who support terrorism. I wish that all the actors who are opposed to fighting terrorism, would quit their jobs, go over to the middle east, and spend the rest of their lives trying to convince the Arabs that they should respect our country. I'm afraid they would all die from old age before they could get their point across. But since they are opposed to military action, they should do something constructive to end terrorism and what better way to educate the muslims than to be there living amongst them. I'm not an anglophile. I respect the peoples from all countries but there are just too many muslims who have shown us that they will do anything it takes to get rid of us. I was very opposed to the Vietnam confrontation but I am very pro this war. I just wish we had finished off Saddam 12 years ago. What a mistake that was. Another thing, let's all do our best to get rid of the United Nations. Let them go to Iraq and set up headquarters. We have been their main supporter and look where it has gotten us. If we hadn't gone through the UN, this war would have started earlier and our troops would have been in Araq at a better time and therefore, wouldn't have been put in so much risk. I afraid it's also possible that many of the UN members have actually supported terrorism against us. Peter Arnett, too bad he was fired from reporting on the war! And Dan Rather, treating Saddam with respect. I guess he would have treated Hitler with respect, too. I imagine NBC got smart after they got emails, etc. We should all contact CBS and maybe they will get rid of Rather. What a talented man, what a shame! We have so much power if we stay united. We can accomplish so much and, as Jesse Ventura, said, the right to speak your mind even though it opposes your government, is what makes our country great. Our soldiers are over their fighting for all of us, the peace protestors as well as those who support them. Too bad the protestors can't see that precious lives are being lost for them so that they have the right to speak out against anything they feel is unjust.

Just let him keep murdering innocent people. Along with the Americans we lost in September 11th. Stand up and get a backbone!!!!!!

I have stopped going to movies, buying videos or DVDs, and immediately change the channel that has any of these stars making an appearance. The West Wing is out. Martin Sheen, who pretends to be a president on that show, actually thinks he knows something about what policies this country should pursue. I did not watch the Academy Awards but understand that while they bashed the president and bashed the country, they gave a standing ovation to a pediphile. What kind of sick people do this? The only bright side to these obnoxious people is that everytime they have an anti-American, anti-war rally, support for the troops, the country, the president and the war go up more percentage points. Obviously, the American people see right through their ignorance and shallowness. We Americans do not need a bunch of self centered, over paid, under worked neurotics who live in a self-created fantasy world to tell us what to think and we don't appreciate their acting as if they actually know something about the real world all of us live in.

hey--- I just varified this to be true... you'll WANT to read it. It is another persons message so I'll repeate it here. ||||| The House of Representatives have recently voted on the 2004 budget which will cut funding for veteran's health care and benefit programs by nearly $25 billion over the next ten years. It narrowly passed by a vote of 215 to 212, and came just a day after Congress passed a resolution to "Support Our Troops." How exactly does this vote support our troops? Does leaving our current and future veterans without access to health care and compensation qualify as supporting them? Suppot our troops. YES. But if Bush is not supporting them, why do you support Bush? I'm going to a movie.|||||

HAS A ONE OF YOU EVEN REMEMBERED THAT RONALD REAGON WAS AN ACTOR FIRST...AND THEN WE, THE PEOPLE, ELECTED HIM OUR PRESIDENT??!! IT TRULY AMAZES ME THAT SOME OF YOU ARE SO VERY ILL INFORMED, READY TO JUMP ON THE FIRST "BANDWAGON" THAT HAS SOMETHING A LITTLE THOUGHT PROVOKING TO SAY. HOW MANY OF YOU HATED HIM FOR HIS KINDNESS AND CONCERN? HOW MANY OF YOU THOUGHT HE LACKED ESTEEM AS A PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE WAS AN ACTOR FIRST? EVERY ONE OF US HAD BETTER LOOK IN OUR OWN HEARTS AND NOT BE THE FIRST TO CAST STONES AT THOSE THAT DON'T AGREE WITH OUR PRESIDENT. FREE SPEECH IS ALL ABOUT WHAT THE USA STANDS FOR....WE DO NOT HAVE TO LIKE EVERTHING THE PRESIDENT DECIDES TO DO ON HIS OWN, BUT WE DO NEED TO PRAY FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT ARE NOW FACING POSSIBLE DEATH BECUASE OF THE DECISIONS MADE BY A PRESIDENT WHO DOES NOT LISTEN TO HIS FELLOW COUNTRYMEN. AND WE ARE ALL AS EQUAL AS ANY OTHER PERSON. "GOD CREATED ALL MEN EQUAL". THINK ABOUT THAT ONE!!!!!PAT...LAS VEGAS

General Douglas MacArthur, in describing the policies of the United States Government in the post-World War II era. "Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear ≠ kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervour ≠ with the cry of grave national emergency. Always, there has been some terrible evil at home, or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it." NO, THESE ARE not the words of an Iraqi defector lashing out at the Saddam Hussein regime nor from someone making a case for political asylum. Far from it. These words were actually uttered in 1957 by no less an authority than the celebrated American, General Douglas MacArthur, in describing the policies of the United States Government in the post-World War II era. And MacArthur should have known. Not only was he the commander of Allied troops in the Pacific during World War II, but he also supervised the postwar occupation of Japan and led United Nations forces during the Korean War. But, has anything changed? The General could easily have been describing the U.S. Government of today. Under President George W. Bush, the U.S. has been trying to convince the world community since last year that Iraq poses a major threat to world peace and has to be disarmed by the use of military force. No matter that there was hardly anything by way of evidence to support the claim, the Bush administration was adamant that Iraq possessed what it described as weapons of mass destruction and was a part of "an axis of evil." The military strikes at Iraq started last Wednesday but the planning has been a long time in the making...yes, even before any resolution was brought before the United Nations Security Council. President Bush, in his State of the Union address last year, couldn't have been any clearer: "Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility towards America and to support terror... The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax and nerve gas and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens, leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children. This is a regime that agreed to international inspections then kicked out the inspectors. This is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world. "States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic." What President Bush did that night was to create the link between Iraq and terrorist groups, even as the American public was still traumatised by the events of September 11, 2001. It reminded of an even more frightening speech he had given following the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the United States when he told the U.S. Congress: "Every nation in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbour or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime." By cleverly linking Saddam Hussein's name with terrorists, he knew he could easily make the case for a war with Iraq. He didn't need the UN as long as he continued to enjoy the vast support of the American people (polls consistently show that over 60 per cent of Americans support President Bush's decision to invade Iraq), he was safe politically. Now we see, despite objections from most of the world community ≠ forget this stupid facade about having a coalition of the willing ≠ the bombs have been raining down on Iraq. By the time it's all over, an untold sum of innocent civilians would have lost their lives. It's a cruel war that has been propagated on speculations, paranoia and self serving allegations. And for what purpose? Some see oil as the motive but I hardly think so. There is a deeper underlying reason at work here- its called arrogance ≠ the big stick. US ARROGANCE The terrible acts of September 11 only served to further shape how the American President looks at those he considers enemies. He makes known his contempt and distrust for countries which do not subscribe to his way of thinking. Newsweek writer Fareed Zakaria, in a recent article entitled "The Arrogant Empire" said this about the Bush doctrine: "The notion is that the United States needs to intimidate countries with its power and assertiveness, always threatening, always denouncing, never showing weakness. Donald Rumsfeld (U.S. Defence Secretary) often quotes a line from Al Capone: You will get more with a kind word and a gun than with a kind word alone." Is it any wonder that other countries, even those that would be willing to endorse a war with Iraq, have felt that the diplomacy at the United Nations was a charade, pursued simply to allow time for military preparations." This brings me to the so-called 'coalition of the willing'. If war wasn't such a serious matter, this could easily have been passed off as a sick joke. Needing only nine votes, the U.S. and its chief ally Great Britain couldn't get their prized resolution, asking the U.N. Security Council to authorise war with Iraq, passed even after using veiled threats and strong-armed tactics to do so. As a matter of fact, realising they couldn't muster the votes, they abandoned the resolution all together and has since taken matters into their own hands. Yet we are now hearing that there is a strong coalition of the willing backing the military strikes against Iraq. A closer look at the coalition will reveal more of a gathering of the powerful and the needy. Here is how one songwriter describes the coalition: "Step right up and make a killing Join...the Coalition of the willing You won't have to do no shooting You're just in it for the looting All the hard stuff is done by Uncle Sam You just nod on cue" The U.S. State Department said 30 governments have agreed to be named in public as supporters of the U.S. led invasion of Iraq, and about 15 others are cooperating behind the scenes. Spokesman Richard Boucher said the basic criterion for inclusion in the published list was that the countries wanted to be publicly associated with the idea that Iraq has to be disarmed now. The 30 countries named are Afghanistan, Albania, Australia, Azerbaijan, Britain, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, the Philippines, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Turkey and Uzbekistan. Many, including elected U.S. officials, have been finding it difficult to refrain from ridiculing what can only be described as a laughable if not amateurish attempt at propaganda. Congressman Lloyd Doggett, a Texas Democrat, had this to say: "While the President's directive to Saddam to 'Get out of Dodge by sundown' is tough, the posse announced today is mighty weak. It includes such military powerhouses as Eritrea and Estonia and pariahs like Uzbekistan with a human rights record as difficult to defend as Saddam Hussein's ... This list is an embarrassing indication of the Administration's foreign policy failure."

I am writing to everyone to finally speak my mind about celebrities and actresses and models.   I think that it is disgusting testament to society that a person who  plays a doctor on television gets paid more than a Doctor who saves lives for real everyday.   It is gross to think that people value someone pretending to be something their not, more than they value people who study for years and work day in and day out sacrificing time with their families and friends saving every penny they earn to put their kids through college, only to watch some 106 LB girl in skimpy clothes earn more than them.  What lesson are we teaching our children that they should go to college even though if they work out quit school and take their clothes off in a magazine they will earn more than they ever could no matter how much schooling or effort they put into their education. Celebrities don't build cities, or save lives, or defend innocent people. Sure they might pretend to for 700,000 an episode, but what do they really contribute to society?  What value do they provide to society, their marriages never work, they abuse drugs and alcohol, shop lift even though they have enough money to buy whatever they want, boast and unhealthy body image to young women, why are we paying for that.  They take no responsibility for their position understanding that they set the tone in the nation, they just do whatever they feel like and that is why we have 13 year old girls singing Brittany spears songs with a thong hanging out of their jeans.  On September 11th I did not see one celebrity helping to clean up ground zero, sure they had a telethon, wow!  My friend Jim was a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen, after he was killed in the trade center Bruce taped himself singing thunder road with a special message for Jim and his family, and everyone was in awe, not me he should have gotten his 40 million dollar butt on a plane and sang it live at his funeral now that would have impressed me.  Who were the people who died saving and recovering lives from the disaster, police men and fire men. They make a fraction of what any of the stars make, and guess what many of them lost their jobs if they survived because of budget cuts in the city.  Do you think any of the celebrities donated money to help save cops jobs or to help financially support those who lost their jobs?  Not a chance.  So in closing please sign this e-mail in protest, and e-mail it to everyone you know, it is time America woke up and honored people who work hard for a living to be good honest people, who give to their families and society in a positive moral way. *Copy it, paste it, sign it, and pass it along.   On the 150, 300, 450 etc. signature mark.  Please E-mail it back to Carol-Ann_ SIGN HERE: 1.

This is exactally how I feel. I would also like to add that for the most part the Hollywood gang is far less educated then our leaders. Most with only a HS education. Which makes them less educated then a good portion of Americans. Sean Penn's recent visit really pushed me over the edge. Maybe he should move!(France, would be nice) Because he might as well have taken up arms against the US. These leaders feed off of this too. They think that is how all the Americans feel. I think Americans should boycot travel to France too, and let the French if a Nazi type party ever marches through Paris again, we'll think about helping, and we'll take our time doing it. Pa.

First they insult us with the trash they call entertainment and now to get attention they insult and embarass us with their inaccurate comments and actions against USA.I would not watch the Emmy's, not because I was caught up with the war coverage, but instead as a boycott to make a statement of discuss for their arrogance and ignorance towards Fans that have supported their careers and have made them sucessful in their industry.Its all about the bottom line baby. We don't support you as actors,you are no longer an asset to the producer (etc.). NO MORE WORK. Get with the real world. IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU SUPPORT THE TROOPS THAT ARE DYING FOR YOU, SO YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR LIFE STYLE.

The name of the video is, "The Fourth Wise Man." This just goes to show me that just because an actor makes a moving and inspiring movie does not mean that he is a true Christian. A true Christian would support our President who prays every day and is not ashamed to speak about God or Jesus Christ. We dont go to movies, but i am either going to send back this video to where i purchased it or throw it out altogether. Need to do something. Am very grateful you started this website.

It is too late to do so for "Hanoi Jane", but it is NOT too late to put pressure on Congress to treat Sean Penn for treason. The law of the land makes plain and clear the definition of treason : "aiding or giving comfort to an enemy. . .". It is indisuptable that his trip to Iraq did in fact grant aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States. I would not even be terribly concerned if the result of the trial was acquittal. The important thing would be the message to Hollywood- fame and notoriety and money and influence do NOT grant you the right to be a traitor to the country whose citizenship you enjoy, with ALL the responsibilities that pertain thereto as well as all the rights. Much has been excused as the exercise of free speech. In defining and giving a benchmark for exercise of free speech as a Constitutional right, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes had this to say: "freedom of speech does not grant one the right to yell 'Fire!' in a crowded theater, when there is no fire." This speaks eloquently of limits on that freedom - our freedom to speak on a matter cannot be exercised when it poses a clear danger to the lives of others. Surely, making a public spectacle of support for the vilest dictator on the face of the planet, in an atmosphere where YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT has stated it is prepared to act to remove him if he does not discharge his 12-year old obligation to disarm completely, in accordance with the basis or the cessation of hostilities in 1991, has to be understood within a framework of responsibility for your behavior. Sean Penn aided and gave comfort to Saddam Hussein and his bloodthirsty henchmen - an irresponsible, ignorant, and heinous act, for which he ought to be held fully accountable and responsible.

I haven't done a lot of traveling, but the one thing that stands out in my mind, is how happy I was to return to the "good ol' USA". Movie stars travel all over the world; surely they must love it here because they always come "home". If they are so unhappy with our desire to stand up and do the right thing for a country run by a cruel and selfish dictator, let they go there and live. Let them go there and march with signs against the governmet. Let them go there and enjoy the freedom they want to keep to themselves without sacrificing anything to give that same freedom to other countries. Last nights movie will be the last until our troops come home. What an excellent idea. I don't have a problem with that at all. I may watch TV, but West Wing will not be one of the shows I watch ever again!!!!! God Bless our Troops!

AMEN!!! THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ALL OF US "NORMAL CITIZENS" TO EXPRESS OUR OPINION AND KNOW IT WILL BE HEARD. HOW DARE THE STARS TO USE THEIR STATUS AND POPLULARITY TO TRY TO INFLUENCE OTHERS! I TOO WILL REMEMBER YOUR NAMES LONG AFTER THIS CONFLICT AND WILL NEVER AGAIN SPEND ANY OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY TO FURTHER YOUR STARDOM AND FEED YOUR FAT EGOS. I SUGGEST ALL OF YOU BUY A ONE-WAY TICKET AND SEE HOW THE IRAQS WELCOME YOUR HELP. WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO ACT AS TARGETS LIKE THE CIVILIANS ARE BEING FORCED TO DO? WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO DIE YOURSELF TO KEEP OUR TROOPS OUT? WOULD IT BE WORTH IT THEN? WAKE UP AND SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE REAL WORLD BECAUSE OBVISOULY YOU'RE NOT IN IT! MOST OF YOU DROPPED OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE TO BE WHAT YOU ARE NOW AND YOU THINK YOU CAN INFLUENCE THE WORLD? DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. THEY MAY BE CAUGHT UP IN YOUR FAIRY TALE WORLD FOR A WHILE BUT THEY'RE PROBABLY MORE EDUCATED THAN YOU; AND IT WON'T TAKE LONG FOR THEM TO REALIZE WOULD WILL HAPPEN IF WE DON'T STOP THIS MADMAN NOW. WOULD YOU RATHER WAIT, ENJOY YOUR STATUS AND MONEY UNTIL SOME MADMAN DECIDES TO BLOW US UP? HONEY, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO TAKE IT WITH YOU. YES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO YOUR OPINION AND DO SO I. HOW DARE YOU CALL YOURSELF AN AMERICAN - YOU'RE ALL A SAD EXAMPLE OF AN AMERICAN IN MY OPINION - AND A WHOLE LOT OF OTHERS! GO TO IRAQ AND STAY THERE. Nancy Acred, Jackson, TN

I, too, are fed up with those people, mostly high school dropouts, who seem to think they have some kin of inner track to the truith. I applaud the right to speak but i do not applaud anti-American rhetoric, slander of the President and non-support of the majority of Americans. Once a decision is made, we must all support it to the best of oufr ability. Those of us who lived through WW II, the Korean war, Vietnam and Afghanistan know that it takes a whole county to guarantee our hard won personal liberties. Since when is 12 years of Saddam laughing up his sleeves at the world, especially the U.N., a failure in diplomacy. He really thinks we are all congenital idiots, fools of the first order, and he must really love our so-called celebrity experts shouting off their mouths while putting in their feet. It is of the utmost importance that we support our leaders and our brave fighters. People today do not know what it is to do without, to have foods, shoes, gasoline etc rationed. They do not know what it is like to wait for weeks for news of loved ones fighting a war and receiving letters cut to pieces by the censors. They do not know what it is like to watch the troop ships coming into New York Harbor to check which battallion is back on leave - not for good - back on leave. We are a country built by fighters for freedom and that is our goal.

My son is over there helping to free Iraq. My husband was there for Desert Storm. I totally support my President and his decision to rid Iraq of Saddam. Most of the American people do not know their history so I am submitting the following letter for their education. Wake America and quit taking your freedom for granted! AMERICA WAKE UP! That's what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001and maybe it was, but I think it should have been "Get Out of Bed!" In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then. It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world's most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign US embassy set the stage for the events to follow for the next 23 years. America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Viet Nam experience and had a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America's inability to deal with terrorism. America's military had been decimated and downsized since the end of the Viet Nam war. A poorly equipped and poorly organized military was called on to execute a complex mission that may have been doomed from the start. Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East. America could do little to protect her citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued. In April of 1983 a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into the US Embassy compound in Beirut. When it explodes, it kills 63 people. The alarm went off again and America hit the Snooze Button once more. Then just six short months later a large truck heavily laden down with over 2500 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut. 241 US servicemen are killed. America mourns her dead and hit the Snooze Button once more. Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait, and America continues her slumber. The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gates of the US Embassy in Beirut and America slept. Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe. In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid. Then in August a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the main gate of the US Air Force Base at Rhein-Main, 22 are killed and the Snooze Alarm is buzzing louder and louder as US soil is continually attacked. Fifty-nine days later a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and we watched as an American in a wheelchair is singled out of the passenger list and executed. The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986 that killed 4 and the most tragic bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988, killing 259. America wants to treat these terrorist acts as crimes; in fact we are still trying to bring these people to trial. These are acts of war. The Wake Up alarm is louder and louder. The terrorists decide to bring the fight to America. In January 1993, two CIA agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The following month, February 1993, a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City. Six people are killed and over 1000 are injured. Still this is a crime and not an act of war? The Snooze alarm is depressed again. Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women. A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards from the US military compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It destroys the Khobar Towers, a US Air Force barracks, killing 19 and injuring over 500. The terrorists are getting braver and smarter as they see that America does not respond decisively. They move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. These attacks were planned with precision. They kill 224. America responds with cruise missile attacks and goes back to sleep. The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden, Yemen for refueling on 12 October 2000, when a small craft pulled along side the ship and exploded killing 17 US Navy Sailors. Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war, but we sent the FBI to investigate the crime and went back to sleep. And of course you know the events of 11 September 2001. Most Americans think this was the first attack against US soil or in America. How wrong they are. America has been under a constant attack since 1979 and we chose to hit the snooze alarm and roll over and go back to sleep. In the news lately we have seen lots of finger pointing from every high official in government over what they knew and what they didn't know. But if you've read the papers and paid a little attention I think you can see exactly what they knew. You don't have to be in the FBI or CIA or on the National Security Council to see the pattern that has been developing since 1979. The President is right on when he says we are engaged in a war. I think we have been in a war for the past 23 years and it will continue until we as a people decide enough is enough. America has to "Get out of Bed" and act decisively now. America has changed forever. We have to be ready to pay the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life continues. We cannot afford to hit the Snooze Button again and roll over and go back to sleep. We have to make the terrorists know that in the words of Admiral Yamamoto after the attack on Pearl Harbor "that all they have done is to awaken a sleeping giant." Thank you very much. Dan Ouimette U.S. Navy Capt. XO of NAS, Pensacola.

I would like to add a comment about the person who claims that Christians do not have the right to take life. If you will read your Bible, you will find such things as this: at the first murder, when Cain killed his brother Abel, God stated a law: "whoever shed man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed." In the New Testament, Paul made it plain and clear that duly-constituted government had not only the right but the RESPONSIBILITY to use the "sword", the power of life and death over its subjects - to take the lives of criminals who took the lives of others. Throughout the history of God's people in the Old Testament, God repeatedly used not just Israel but even ungodly nations to punish those whose crimes were so great as to be an abomination to God. Saddam Hussein has gassed tens of thousands, tortured hundreds of thousands. The man has raised his two sons to be even worse than he is. The sworn testimony of several witnesses is that Saddam Hussein has executions videotaped and he watches them over and over again. Finally, Jesus Christ has said, "he that is not with me is againt me." If we do not take this evil man down, we will be as responsible for whatever happens as the cowards who let Adolf Hitler keep taking parts of Europe unopposed until we had to spend far more to bring him down than would have had to be done in the 1930s. People say "history repeats itself." While true, this is a corruption of the original quotation, which is: "those who fail to study history are doomed to repeat it." There are some bullies that cannot be either reasoned with or threatened into socially acceptable behavior. Saddam Hussein has clearly, repeatedly demonstrated he is just such a one. We have both a moral and legal obligation to end his regime of terror. Tim McVeigh has been linked to a group of know Iraqi terrorists and intelligence officers - we have ample evidence that Saddam Hussein and his henchmen have aided and supported Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. How much do we have to have before some people recognize that inaction is NOT AN OPTION anymore??????

I fully agree with you! If those Hollywood stars would stop and think for just a monent, they were the ones who helped raise millions of dollars for the victims of 911. All of whom had insurance and whose insurance companines have gone out of business because of the most horrible disaster in our history. This is a time when they should be supporting the families and raising money for them. They are in need of support. Our President and his advisors are in need of all our support and our prayers. If they are so against the war...let them to live in Bagdad and see how long they last in speaking out against their wonderful leader....just long enough for the knife to slit their thoat! That would be my guess!

You can pass this back to those who sent you this e-mail. I have taken a great deal of time to research and think about the war, the protests and then formulate my opinion of the whole situation. I support our troops 100% in their effort to crush a regime that rules by terror and suppression. However, I do not support an effort to boycott or stand against any American who disagrees with the decisions our government has made... For this one simple fact, what our military is fighting for and dying for in Iraq, is for the freedom of a people to have rights. To have a voice and to be able to agree, disagree and think for themselves. The people of Hollywood have the right to express their opposition to this war. I am not sure that I understand the message of this E-mail. It states that the people in Hollywood have become far too powerful... yet it also states that 70% of the population supports this war effort. That seems to me, that people are still thinking for themselves. Granted, the people of Hollywood could have picked a more appropriate place than the awards ceremony or at a concert... To my knowledge, no one has ever accused those in Hollywood of being practical or reserved. To boycott or stand against them, is to boycott against the freedom they have to express their opinion. I agree, that once the war started, they should have focused on the support of our troops and prayed for the duration of this conflict to be short... but I am not the one to tell someone else what to do, to think or how to express it. Are you? Is that freedom? It is extremely difficult to have those we love fighting against a regime that uses the tactics they are facing. It is hard to have them gone from our day to day lives. However, their focus and ours should be on the success of what they are fighting for... not on trivial matters of what others think. The media has focused so much attention on the protests and flag burning that it has distracted us from the true importance of this conflict. There are millions of people in Iraq being used, suppressed and murdered by a dictatorship and militant regime that we have the capability to defeat. Obviously, other countries around the world are not going to help them or do not have the means to do so. Our troops need all the support and prayer they can get. So, please focus on that, it is a far better cause. You can boycott Hollywood, will that change the minds of those who do not believe in this war? Or are you just trying to sway them to think the way you think? Trying to silence the voices of those who do not agree with you... Is that what you want to focus on and to share with other American's? I think we should value the freedoms we have left and support our military in their effort to help the Iraqi people to have a taste of freedom for themselves. The best way to change the minds of people who do not agree with you, is to show them proof that what you believe is better. This boycott will not do that, it will get their attention... but it won't change their minds. Focus on what will.

To take away someone's right to protest, to speak about it... whether you agree or not, is a violation of our constitution. It is every citizens right in the U.S. to have the freedom to do so.

I also I'm thankful that those in Hollywood have the right to say what they believe or think, whether I agree with them or not. I nor my brother put I lives in jeopardy defending this country or our believes so that everyone must say the same thing or SHUT UP. Just because they and I don't believe in this war, it does not mean why are against our troops.

I agree completely with the author of this e-mail. I have a nephew over in Kuwait, a United States Marine, who I couldn't be more proud of! He has his entire family here supporting him and what he is doing for our country. He left his wife and children home to defend us, then he see all this anti-war garbage. That's a real morale booster. All these "stars" wouldn't have anyone to entertain if not for people like my nephew, who lay down their lives if needed to defend our free country. These "stars" wouldn't have anyone to entertain if not for these young men and women insuring our freedom here! I am not a movie goer anyway, but I will encourage anyone who crosses my path, not to go. To not provide these "stars" any support. . . They are not supporting our troops and that is too bad. I am praying for each and every person over there defending our country. I have been doing this from the beginning and I will continue until it ends. I pray for our President, because I know he hears the voice of our Lord. My prayer is that he hears Jesus clearly. I also pray for all the families, that they know God's peace and comfort. Please join me in prayer for our service men and women. T Hays, Cypress, CA

I agree. My husband is in the Navy and while he is still here....he has been to war for us before. It amazes me that after 9/11 you could not look in any direction without seeing the American Flag. Where is it now? I'm not seeing too many in the neighborhoods, on buildings, automobiles, hanging off the sides of stores or in windows......why is that? Our men and women are risking all to do their duty. They didn't all freely choose to go - many of them are simply duty bound. But the ideal is there....Why are many people only raising the flag in support of those who lost on 9/11 but not of those lost now while defending our country? Supporting the soldier is not supporting war....there is quite a distinction between the two. It is time for all of us to support the men and women protecting us regardless of personal stance on the war. We stopped too soon once before....look what happened. Do you really want to stop short of the goal again? America has now taken a stand and said in essence, "Do not bring your fight here. We will not tolerate it". If we stop short now...what are we really telling the rest of the world? Allison Bevis, Virginia Beach, VA

Go home and get on your knee and pray and thank God you live in this country. You would not be doing what you are doing if you were in Iraq. Maybe you should go over there and live for a while and then you would appriciate America. Our founding Fathers would turn over in their graves if they saw how far people had gotten away from "one nation under God".

All though I share these thoughts whole heartedly, and have gotten very angry with the hollywood liberals, your have to remember that nothing is all black or all white. There are people in Hollywood that are just as stanch conservatives as you and I are. They have been verbally battered by their fellow Hollywood liberal types because if you don't believe their way you get treated like the enemy. While we are boycotting these liberal types, please try to be kind to the great Hollywood people who are God fearing conservatives like us. I hope we can hit these mean spirited liberals in their pocketbooks which I think is all they care about. They think that just because they make more money than most of us, it makes them smarter than us, so they should be able to tell us what to think! Do you know that most of them have only finished High school! As for saying President Bush didn't win the election, the votes were counted out, and he did win the election. If these people had checked they would have found that out. So much for them thinking their so smart!!!! Thanks ! EEJ from Washington

I'm with you 100%. I, too, hate war until justice calls us into action. Evil must be stopped. We have prayed for our enemies for centuries, and God's choice as we read His Word, it to go to war and kill them if needed. Too many countries have catered to Iraq due to financial gain without considering the cost Saddam's own countrymen have paid--death. Justice is due, and those against the war need to open their eyes--9/11 had connections to Saddam, and we lost thousands. Wake up! His time has come. I just pray that enough of the Iragii's will seek peace, and not revert to power hungry leaders like Saddam. If they haven't noticed we are trying very hard not to kill non-military/political tyrants. We are shipping food and water and other necessities--we are not their enemies. We only want peace. Once they elect a more democratic leader, we will pull out. Terrorists must go home and live in peace, or we will continue to be after them. From 40-60 wars are going on all the time, this is just one. The Bible says that the end times will see a radical increase of evil forces to the point that they take over the world. That doesn't mean we should give in without a fight. I'm praying that God's will will be done! --David Cloud

The House of Representatives have recently voted on the 2004 budget which will cut funding for veteran's health care and benefit programs by nearly $25 billion over the next ten years. It narrowly passed by a vote of 215 to 212, and came just a day after Congress passed a resolution to "Support Our Troops." How exactly does this vote support our troops? Does leaving our current and future veterans without access to health care and compensation qualify as supporting them? Suppot our troops. YES. But if Bush is not supporting them, why do you support Bush? I'm going to a movie.

This writer says it all!! Amen! Date: 30 Mar 2003 Time: 10:57:52 Comments I am very proud to be an American too! I do not agree with this war. It is wrong! What happened on 09/11 is terrible! No one has proven that Saddam Hussein was behind that terrible event. He is a villainous leader. There are ways of dealing with that. The U.S. going to war when there is no immanent threat is irresponsible. There is a process that the world community can follow and that is through the U.N. As a nation we are tearing apart all that we have worked hard for over 200 years to build. That we are a nation built on principles that honor the best in the human spirit, and honors God. We have transgressed from commonly accepted international norms in trying to help a captive people. Vengeance begets vengeance. Just because we happen to be a super power at this time in history does not give us the right to abuse that power by inflicting our President's will not just upon Saddam and his regime, but upon the whole world community. The so called wisdom of our present administration is not greater than the collective wisdom of the larger world community that we live in and take part in. The cost of this war will be mind boggling. Thanks to this administration, not even 1 penny has been included in next years budget to assist with the rebuilding of Afghanistan after all of our bombings, not to mention that Mr. Bin Laden is still on the loose. I DO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS. I hope you will be just as convinced in calling upon our president, Mr. Bush to be more reasonable with the budget so that our troops will be cared for in a humane way when they return, especially those wounded and in need of health resources. The president will never be able to "support our troops" by giving huge tax breaks to our wealthiest citizens and also care for our "wounded troops" when they will be in need. There will not be enough monies to provide for their care, as is already evidenced by the lack of care for the troops from the last Gulf War. Yes I am proud to be an American, I do support our troops, but I believe that we are fighting a war that is wrong, because we have gone into it without the support of the rest of the world, and with Great Arrogance. This Self-Serving Pride will come back to haunt us. Also in the mean time, watch our taxes go up to pay for all this. And who wins when our taxes go up? The same people who win when oil proffits hit "their" pockets... and it is not our troops nor the average American that will benifit. Period. Peace eventually, . Giancarlo

Both of my children are working their way through college & trade school in motion picture theatres. Such a boycott would have a damaging effect on many innocent individuals. If an entertainer would say: "I know Saddam hates America, and wants to destroy all Americans, an dwants to kill me and destroy everything I believe in," they would have some credibility. But they sound like a bunch of babbling idiots to me.

This is not a just war. I encourage MORE people to speak out about it, not just entertainers. What kind of country has this become where people equate speaking out against unjust wars is un-American. George W Bush is very quickly ruining this country and now he is getting people killed in the process. We have started this war for all the wrong reasons and we are ignoring important problems at home, and also cutting funding for important projects, to fund this war. I will gladly spend my money to support any entertainer who speaks out about the war. God knows, we hear enough people speaking up FOR the war on our news channels(all owned by big business). T.

I am an (american) retired teacher Married to a Native Candadian. We have been living on his reserve in canada since 1999. My daughter lives near camp pendleton in calif where her chldhood boyfriend was stationed as a marine.MY neice and nephew are both AF. my mother and brother live near pearl harbor, i have relatives in new york, and a dear friend was on the 65th floor of the WTC when it was hit, so needless to say i am torn through all of this....with great concern for my family's well being. Since 1968 i have been a peace activist, working diligently for a peaceful world.... I am not against my country but for humanity.Yes i am a US citizen but i am and will always be a citizen of earth first.....Please do not forget that we are ALL children of God....we are all precious to him. Even Jesus said that we must love our enemies even more than we love ourselves...so please in spite of your anger towards Saddam and other human threats to humanity,.. please pray for them instead of casting out words of hatred towards them.. I have never agreed with US wars when the underlying interests have been for the purpose of economics or to colonize other countries but in spite of my disagreements. I have never said degrading remarks against any president or against any military person, even though i disagree with war as an alternative. I have always been a believer in non violent protest, and non violent solutions to conflict. BUt if it came down to defending my children, my grandchildren or my home, yes i would fight if that were the only alternative left. THis is what concerns me>>> so many people are so caught up in this war being one of liberation.....i have done my research, i have kept myself informed on US relations and economic policies in 3rd world countries for years so i am not an uneducated ignorant person regarding this issue. This war could have been avoided thru diplomacy... i really truly believe this. Yes the people of Iraq are suffering horrendous abuses. but please do not forget that our US government originally trained both saddam hussein and ossama bin laden and armed them. Why was this unholy alliance made? For oil and US corporate presence in those countries...plain and simple! Please do not forget that Saddam Hussein then used that military power and force acquired through US assistance to conduct his reign of terror over the kurds, his countrymen and of course kuwait, iran, etc. please do not forget that just like we americans had to acquire our freedom with our own determination, that is what the iraqi people must also do. and please do not forget that it was with the aid of France as well as many native american nations that the revolution for independence from ENglish soverignty was won! How did the american government thank their native allies? they killed them off systemactically, they imprisoned them on isolated barren lands for the sole purpose to acquire their ancestral lands and resources! SO as much as i love my country, i do not deny or glorify the damages my own countrymen have inflicted on humanity in the name of "progress" or so called "manifest destiny"! I am a daughter of an immigrant mother(greece) and a native american father so i am well aware of the horrors of war from both my parents histories. and yes i have been very fortunate to have lived the first 51 years of my life protected from the horrors of war fought in my homeland. I believe the reason many countries have been against this war is because they know first hand the horrors of war and the effects of american colonialization and economic "dictatorship" over their economies. anyone who is knowldgeable of both world history as well as US history should not ignore or glorify or deny the horrors inflicted by US terrorist tactics against the native peoples of the americas.And please do not forget that awful blot on american history...the kidnap and enslavement of the people of africa.(many who ironically were devout followers of "allah".) Many have not forgotten the horrible effects of war and suffering that was brought upon the peoples of europe throughout their histories. I myself have relatives who were tortured and executed fighting for freedom and i love and cherish them dearly for that.... So i am not naive or ignorant when i speak out against war as an option when it can and should be avoided at whatever cost. It saddens me when I hear people say to those who protest war to leave the country if we disagree....because there are many who are now protesting this war, that have fought to preserve YOUR freedoms as well as their own right to disagree if they so choose! They have seen and experienced war first hand and do not want to see it continued!!!! So my response to many of you who are sitting comfortably at your computers is this.....if you cherish your freedom so much, then why don't you yourself....man woman grandmother whatever go to Iraq and help those soldiers as well....work in the kitchens to feed them, or the hospitals to wrap their wounds and smell the stench of rotting flesh and death....help to set up places for those orpahns and widows to find refuge fast for a week to know the suffrering of hunger and drink from the toilet to know the full effects of poisoned water, or take the money used for one weeks worth of groceries and send it to iraq to help aid them in their suffering...do you see what i am getting at? If you are going to tell "US" who are agianst needless war to pack up our bags and go to iraq, then you should do the same....if you are willing to sacrifice your precious sons and daughters or someone elses precious child so you can have the luxury and freedom to drive around in your gas powered vehicle or eat well or shop at your local mall,or send your children to school every day or see a doctor when needed....or to have the right to post your comment on public forums....to pray to the god of your choice......if you hold these treasures of a free society so dear...then you too should be in Iraq, in the front lines or at least the sidelines supporting those sacrificial lambs...OUR WARRIORS...and the people of iraq... IN ACTION NOT IN WORDS....otherwise as far as i am concerned you are no better that those you condemn and YOU ARE HIPPOCRITES. I do not direct this comment to the Vets, and their bravery and loyalty to the ideals of freedom. i direct this to those who are willing to send you off to fight for their way of life and let you die for their way of life selfishly approving of your sacrifice. I Direct this to those of you who say you pity those people in iraq yet what are you DOING PERSONALLY to ease their suffering? WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL SACRIFICE TO AID THEM??? I LOVE AMERICA, BUT I ALSO LOVE THE WORLD AND ALL GOD HAS CREATED! i PRAY THAT ALL THIS SUFFERING WILL END AND THAT WE CAN PUT AS MUCH ENERGY INTO PRAYER AND ACTION AS WE HAVE BEEN PUTTIN INTO THESE DISCUSSIONS

I am a Vietnam Vet and I have a suggestion of what we can do with the most vocal of the Hollywood group. During WW I, gas was used against the troops... In order to know when it was safe to remove their masks, they would use caged canaries. If the birds didn't keel over, then the threat of the gas was gone. Maybe we can get the Hollywood vocals to show the world that Sadaam doesn't have gas or chemicals, by being the canaries for our troops that are in harms way today.

I agree with this writer wholeheartly. I donot agree with anyone that goes on TV who is "well known", and think they have the right to try and sway an American to go against The President of the United States. Whether a Republican or Democrate, we should let the peole that is running our country do their job. When an American speaks against our Leaders, especially our President, it only weakens a link in our country. Other countries may look at these self absorbed people who is against the war and think we all feel the same way. Besides, some of our celebraties are just talking. They have no idea what is going on. Take a poll of all our service men in combat and they will more than likely say "let us do our job and people in America and Britian just pray we can get it done soon".......Janie Kutka in Tupelo,Mississippi

I have done a small part in paying the price to get this Freedom. (US Navy) 1964-68.. Stop and think for a second before excerizeing your Freedom just what have you paid to gain all that we have, before you start taking pot shots at thoes who are trying to keep and share what we have. I do not like War, but to keep and share what we have war can be and is the price that is paid to get rid of the tarrorist killing machine.

My husband brought up an interesting point. Are any of the people in the "entertainment" industry who are protesting the war also involved in movies "war type" movies? I "don't" even mean movies with any historical or biographical content, but maybe they should also be included because people are making money of the war stories that the movies portray. My other comment is that I don't think boycotting is enough. I think to really make a difference we would need to boycott the company's products who advertize. And make sure they "know" why they are losing money and why we can't support them by buying their products. It's not about the entertainers either. What about the producers, writers, directors, camera men, set designers, and so on and so. If the actors in a certain movie support our troops, but several others who were involved in the making of the movie do not - then do we still boycott that movie?

I believe in our county and our president. I support the men and women who are fighting to defend this country, our principles and our freedom. I am disappointed that there are those in our country who feel the need to protest. The things that are very frustrating for me is watching the anti-war protestors displaying anti-american sentiments - they block off roads, and disrupt "normal" daily activities in cities all over the country so that our EMS, police & fire must take their precious time away from "real" work in order to ensure that these protestors, and those who become incited by them, maintain peaceful interactions. I become angry when I hear that another anti-war protest breaks out in violence. Don't these things all defeat the purpose of what every decent, American citizen wants for each other, our children and our country? Bottom-line: whether or not you believe in what is occuring internationally or domestically - you MUST support your country, your government and those who are fighting for you and your ability to express your opinions and beliefs.

I couldn't have said it better. I personally think if they want to do something positive they could each send 15% of their worth to the military in order to insure these brave men and women would not loose their homes while fighting so bravely to give them the right to make this money. I CHALLNGE THEM to make this small sacrifice, and all of you that would like to make a small difference and log on to  and they will send you an address of a soldier that you can send a package of items needed.

you site polls that 70% of americans are in favor of this war. who are these americans? i do not know one american in favor of this war. even my pastors are not in favor of this war. please do not confuse people speaking out in favor of peace with anti-american sentiment. Those who want peace support the troups. they are following their orders and we pray for their safe return. this war is not about freeing the people of iraq from a madman. do you really think bush care about them? if he really cares about people, he should care about the starving children in the great US of A and stop spening billions of dollars on war and start spending them on educating our children and providing health care for everyone. this war is about securing enough oil so that proud americans can live in ignorance of the rest of the world and the environment, driving their SUV's everywhere.

This is great. I will send this to all my family & friends. My son was so sick of the protests that he had a rally to support our troops. In scranton pa. We had around 1,000 people attend. It is great to show our support. Try to go to as many rallies as you can. Cathy Cahill

This was signed by a woman who us proud to be an American, why no name??? My name is Tom Ross of Las Vegas, Nevada, I am proud to be an AMerican, one who seved in the military, and one who is proud to exersize my right to dissent!!! The reason we are at war is because George W. wanted us there. Most of your arguements have some validity, for instance, Saddam is killing thousands of his own people, but so is the leader of Korea, whose weapon of mass distruction is nuclear, the leaders of a few African countries are also practicing genocide against their own people, but the difference between these countries and Iraq, there are 2 major differences, Iraq sits pn top of one of the worlds largest oil reserves, and is led by a man who caused the President's father to get voted out of office, so George W. has it in for him for that reason also. I have a lot of respect and support for our troops fighting all over the world, but I have contempt for the man who sent them there! SUPPORT OUR TROOPS, BRING THEM HOME!!!!!!!!

I wonder if any of those in favor of boycotting outspoken actors,including the author, voted for Ronald Reagan. He had been an actor. Come to think of it,most of our politicians are actors.

I am so glad that someone is finally standing up to the "minority". I agree that the Hollywood "stars" are way out of line. They are not the stars of this country, Our President and our troops are. I was thoroughly disgusted by the outburst at the Academy Awards. I do not watch award shows but read it in the paper and heard it on the news. What a shame. Maybe we should send him to live in Iraq for a while. I pray for the safety of all troops and may God guide our President through this war. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR PRESIDENT!!!

I feel that boycotting Hollywood would be unfair, because there has been many celebrities that do support our president in his decision. So many have made positive comments in the public eye requesting that we continue to pray for peace and a speedy resolution. I believe that not showing our support in entertainment would be crazy and unfair to those who love and support the leader of our country,and second of all a good laugh here and there is needed in a time when people are in such distress.

ATTENTION HOLLYWOOD: as a natural-born American citizen raised in the greatest country in the world, I want you to know that you do not speak for me regarding our troops, this war, or the Bush administration. This war is about protecting our rights to freedom. So many people have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country in order to preserve our freedom. And in case you have forgotten, it is about defending this great country including your right to bash our government and protest or burn our flag or stage your drama on screen as well as off. It is about stopping tyrants and the terrorists connected to them from destroying the world. We've had enough! Take your money and all your free time and give it to something constructive. Support our troops. Support this country. It is the very least you can do and you will do our country a service instead of disgrace it, embarrass it, and degrade it. The war on terror did not start with the war on Iraq. It started on September 11, 2001.

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and the brother of James, in his letter to believers, spoke about the sinners of Sodom and Gomorrah and he listed "filthy dreamers" among them. I considers these Holywood celebrities to fall into the category of "dreamers" and refuse to allow them to dictate the path I should travel. I thank God for the United States of America, the current administration, and the troops that are putting their lives on the line -- not only for America, but also for fredom loving people throughout the world. May God continue to bless America and keep His strong arm around our prsident, his cabinmet, and our troops. Henry

RIGHT ON!!! Hollywood thinks that Americans are so dumb and uninformed that they have the right to tell us how to think and believe. Unfortunately, I think Satan has blinded them and has control of Hollywood. I also have a son-in-law in the Army who is getting ready to go to Iraq. He just returned from Afghanistan. All our military men and women who are overseas serving their country should be able to see ALL of America supporting them and our President!! I totally agree that we should STOP supporting Hollywood by boycotting movies at the theaters and stop renting movies. LET US ALL UNITE TO LET HOLLYWOOD KNOW WHERE WE STAND! If they don't like it here, then let them go to Iraq and stay there! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PRESIDENT BUSH AND HIS FAMILY!

I want to share what happened in my church Sunday. They started with the pledge to the flag, including 'UNDER GOD' part. Then we sang some patriotic songs and then our pastor read a portion of a speach given by a politician in Florida about what she thinks about the so called stars of Hollywood. She asked where were they when a shield was needed during WWII, or Korean or Vietnam war. Where were they when the firemen and police gave their lives at the towers on 9/11. This as a result of instructions of the beast from Iraq. You should have heard the applause from the worshipers after he read that speach. So I wish to add my heartfelt YES to this letter. And I am not ashamed to add my name. Laurine Wright from Fresno, CA.

this was very good and as a former coast guardsmen i salute you son in law. and i totally agree with you about members of "hollywood" that have the money and the accessibility to the media to express their opinion. but a total ban on the industry itself? that i feel would be not fair. you are now talking about putting a lot of people who work behind the the so called stars that actually work for a living and may also have relatives fighting in this war. i would suggest that we selectively pick the non supporters and then refuse to give them the accolades they so much crave.i am sure there are many people in that industry that are shaking there heads in disgust knowing that a small majority that has access to the media becomes there spokesperson.that select few should be remembered after we have achieved our military goals and out men and women our back safe and then we can make them atone for there statements by refusing to see anything that they produce/direct/star in. i think their "fall from grace" wil have them groveling for our attention, and doing a lot of damage recovery to there careers. we have shot attention spans as americans.. (jane fonda). anyways i think we should not put an industry out of work for the stupidity of the people that have access to a camera and a mike.and if this goes on a web board, no i am not in any way connected to the media industry.. i a just a 911/radio sispatcher for a sheriff's office in florida. once again i salute your son in law..

Hooray for you to post this - let's have more people like this corageous woman! We all need to support our President and our Troops in this War with Iraq. The Hollywood Bums should be boycotted. They are all highschool drop-outs and druggies who think they know better than the President Bush and his advisors who are all college graduates and who have briefings every day on what is really going on. The Hollywood bums have no idea what is really going on - they are just looking for publicity and I hope they get it in the pocketbook when everyone boycotts Hollywood! You'd think they would have learned from their star of the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda who posed with the enemy and and denounced all our troops in Vietnam. These Hollywood illiterates should all be in Jail for treason. They'd soon stop if the liberal MEDIA would stop giving them press and coverage - that's because the TV and Press are still for Clinton so are against Bush and it shows.

We go to bed with down feather pillows, nice warm comforters, we get up in the morning and we can shower, or take a luxury bubble bath, go out meet our friends, go to nice resturant, have a wonderful dinner, go home and snack anytime we feel like it, and so much more. While these men and women are fighting and dying for our country, so we the people can go on with our life. It makes me sad that these anti war comments being made from people who really have no clue. I pray for them, for being so ignorant. As far as our President goes, I feel he is doing a good job, I'm proud of him and he is not my son. He's a man with good morales, he prays and stands behind our men and women who are fighting for our nation, to have peace on earth. Mom, Barger in Florida.....God Bless our Soldiers!

In general, people in the movie and television industries are not highly educated. Many of them do not have college degrees, and they know that the only way they can contribute to society is as actors in a make-believe world. So, expressions of omnipotence by those people are actually manifestations of in inferiority complex. Deep within themselves they know that they don't know as much as the President and his advisors, or the leadership in the military services, about how to prosecute this war against terrorism that has been thrust upon us. So what do they do? They do the same thing as anyone with an inferiority complex--they try to convince other people that they know more than they acutally know about the subject. It is very frustrating when I hear and see people in the entertainment industry and the media trying to convince all of us of their comparative omnipotence regarding how to prosecute this conflict that our leaders and our young men and women are tryin to resolve on our behalf. But I will not be influenced by comments made by people suffering from inferiority complexes. We live in a free country and everyone is entitled to their opinions. But as Baruch wrote, while "every man is entitled to his opinion, no man is entitled to be ignorant of the facts". Only our governmental and military leaders have the facts--all the rest is just opinions. I trust and respect those experts who have the facts, and I support totally and completely the young men and women who have stepped forward voluntarily to preserve our freedom for us. I will continue to ignore those who reveal their inferiorities--regardless of their professed omnipotence or their misperceived place on our society. As the cliche goes--what goes around, comes around.

I couldn't agree with the opinions expressed on this website anymore! Hollywood absolutely disgusts me. They seem to think that this is a war over oil, or power. It has nothing to do with that. Have they already forgotten about the thousands of AMERICANS that were killed in the terrorist attacks on September 11th? I, for one, think that the actors & actresses should stick to what they do best; make movies and take our money. Kindly do all of us PROUD AMERICANS a favor and keep your mouths shut about this "tragic and cruel war that is so unneccesary". You would not have any of the freedoms that you do, had it not been for the men and women that have fought for those freedoms for us. God bless all those serving our country and GOD BLESS THE USA!

Who do these people think they are, or better yet, why do they think we care about what they have to say. Hollywoods track record stands for itself, with its immoral, corrupt,irrational, behavior. As if this would be a strong foundation to even consider that their comments would have any validity.

I also believe that these "entertainers" are using their status and their positions to bring more attention to themselves. as if any of them need more! It's just the Newest "thing" for them to do, and I don't believe any of them have a true conscience about it. Shame on you hollywood, shame on you! You of all people should be setting a good example for our young people, and you of all people, who make your living (if that's what it's called) from this country, should have the decency not to vent this demoralizing behavior in such a public manner.

Jesus taught Love and Peace. Peace through greater understanding. Anyone see the movie Gandhi. Rent the video and pay attention. He defeated the British with non-violence. The saviours message was clear. You Christians out there ---May God forgive those mindless sheep. Love is the message of the new testament... the mistakes of war were from the old testament... Jesus taught LOVE and PEACE. Before him many wars were fought... The world needed a change as the ways of war were NOT working. God gave us his son JESUS to teach Love and PEACE. Jesus taught Peace and Love. His message was clearly taught to change the mistaken belief that wars were won for God. History is written by the victors... and the Victors are not always right. Look at our criminals who get off because our courts fail to lock them up. Vengance begats vengance. We still have not learned. Appears to me not many of you see what history in the Bible is trying to say. I for one will go to a movie tonight.... and I pray the world will survive this sickening nonsence of killing and injustuce. One final comment. You will pay higher taxes for all this. Your tax dollars make it to the pockets of a "few already rich people"... the "same people who profit from oil" and the "same people who will profit from this war." Bush - is just a puppet on their strings. You and I.... we are wage slaves to a system that hides the truth. We think we work for our take home pay... look at the left side of your pay chech and think again. This is a war about OIL and MONEY..... and disrespect the work of 200 years to creat a United Nations, to believe otherwise is narrow minded. AGAIN--> You will pay higher taxes for all this. Your tax dollars make it to the pockets of a "few already rich people"... the "same people who profit from oil" and the "same people who will profit from this war." Bush - is just a puppet on their strings... you most of you are puppets on Bush's strings. Me- I'm going to a movie an pray the world survives this mess.

I do not approve of anti-war demonstrations. God forbid if while these people are demonstrating, a terrorist attack takes place and some of their family members are killed. Do they realize that the law enforcement men and women, that are keeping the demonstratiors in line, could be at a strategic place in our country protecting our homeland? I guess not! Most demonstrators just want to be noticed and the media is giving them that attention. Sincerely, Barbara Campion Fall River, MA

To BOYCOTT the Hollywood stars - thoughtless act. We in America have freedom of speech. To go against that ideal is to go against who we really are. To be at war in the first place- thoughtless COWARDLY act. >>> "What do we think of a school yard bully? What do we teach a school yard bully.<<< We educate them. We help them see themselves and help them get over their INSECURITY. We do it with reason. Has anyone even recognized the ones who committed the actual act on 9/11 are dead. They took their own lives too........ ...... ........ ....... ........ ........ ........... .......... They are DEAD.......... ........ .......... ........ ........ .......... ......... ........ ........ ........ . To educate Iran, would be the only way to liberate their people. To help them see themselves is the only answer that will make a difference. >>> .>>>. >>>. >>>. >>> Peace through greater understanding <<< <<< <<< ,<<,,<,,<<. Looks to me we have a long ways to go at understanding ourselves. We are the most powerful Nation in the world. Does that give us the right to Bully, or does it give us the responsibility to educate and lift up others. I see us as a bully and our beautiful land is less beautiful than it once was. I'll repeat another mans words- "I see neither bravery nor sacrifice in destroying life or property for offence or defence" That goes for the property of the Iraqi and the right to perform and become a star for our American People. Freedom YES. Non compliance with and disrespect for; the "United Nations", is pure arrogance. Shame on you!!!

I fully agree that hollywood should be relegated to the place where it has always belonged, but I haven't seen an entertaining movie in years. All it produces anymore is murder and mayhem, neither of which is entertaining. They are disgusting! I do not support George Bush and I do not believe the Iraqi people want us there. George is a megalomaniac as far as I am concerned. However, I fully support our troops and would do anything in my power to help them, my mind is never far from the front lines nor has it been since this war started. I pray day and night for them and wish I could do more. Beth McCarty

I say let's all chip in and get "The Hollywood Bunch" and the rest of the self-gratifying entertainment world a one-way ticket to Iraq! What a joke they are! Puh-leeze! I made note of the "infamous" Hollywood/music/etc. people who are pulling this crap. I refuse to go to movie, buy a cd, etc. with their name appearing in it! I need my hard-earned money way more than they do! Let's use our money to buy flags and yellow ribbons and to send cards and care packages to those who truly deserve it! And to the younger people out there demonstrating, I say, stop following your buddies. Get a backbone - stand up for freedom - stop following the crowd. It is tougher to stand up to such tyrannts like Hussein and Bin Laden than to take the day off and protest..... Take some time and visit the Charlie Daniels website and click on "Soapbox" and enjoy what he has to say about it. Great reading! Go to church this Sunday instead of the movies. Pray for our leaders and those who are in service to this great country. Pray that the conflict will end soon, minimizing the lost of life. May God Bless all of you who support this great nation, its great leader, and those serving in the Armed Forces. God Bless those other countries who dare to stand up for what is right.

I am 21 years old... have you forgotten what this man did a few years ago he shot is own brother in law for disagreeing with him. I do believe what the united state government is doing because i am a daughter of a vietnam vet and a grand daughter of a ww2 vet. i will go to war for this country if i could i would i have a lot of friends who are in this war the main reason for this war is if we didn't do something he would have then where would we be. they are not dropping the bombs on the children and women unless they are in the government buildings. they are helping the women and children over there suppling medical treatment and food for those people. they have fired what they said that they did not have suprise suprise i support the troops and i support the president of these united states. I know that this is just my oppinion it isn't much for a 21 year old but this is how i feel last time we butted out pearl harbor happened or don't people remember this?

I thoroughly agree wwith the above message.....as a veteran of the Korean and the Vietam war....who gives them the right to stand up there and protest...what have they ever done to support their country...while making millions of money for a movie...We, as Americans who have been there, saw it and don't like it...what do they know....we, as wifes of small children who have been left behind and hoping that when there is a knock on the door it will be a neighbor instead of a uniformed person who is delivering the news....I am the wife who has waited at home, taking care of what needed to be done and did it well wile raising three great children mostly alone. We didn't have a clue about what was going on regarding the above mentioned conflicts....we were not suppose to ask..now this war is an open book. It took a tole on our children...the separations, the not knowing, and being a single parent....and of the tension of waiting to see when it would start all over again...our children lived through it and are all fine, but they certainly remember and this war brings back many memories and respect the men and women who are serving and giving up their lives...why does the enemy have to know so much information as to where our troops are employed....seems to me it is like putting a gun to you own head....

I see no act of bravery coming from Hollywood. Yes, they are entitled their opinion just like any other American. However, they use and abuse their status and opportunities in front of the camera and/or microphone for their own means, knowing they can carry a tremendous amount of influence. It is a shame people like Michael Moore feel it is necessary to demean the President and the office he holds and it is also all too obvious he never made it past the election. If he thinks he made a point...the only point he really made was making himself look like a fool. Maybe their memories are too short and the events of 9/11 no longer mean anything to them. It is time this country stood UNITED, after all, our country is named the "UNITED" States of America.

Out of all the countries he may or may not take a disslike of WHO would stand up to this FOOL. If the UNITED STATES and the coalition countries didn't. I wounder if France fell from grace with Satin I think they would burn up the phone line to the good old U.S.A. at which time we said well you need to sit down and talk to them and all your problems will be over, of course if that doesn't work we think you just haven't talked to old satin long enough. We are SURE that if you go back to him and sweet talk him again he would come around. WE would really like to help you but we just think it is wrong of you to think HARSHLY of that GOOD OLD BOY. You go back and talk soe more and if that doesn't work we will sit down withthe SOVIET UNION , CHINA, CUBA and any other GOOD OLD BOYS and see what we can come up with. I hope you wouldn't want us to rush into something to quickly, so you sit tight because it may be awhile. Signed A GOOD OLD BOY

Date: 30 Mar 2003 Time: 17:10:05 Comments 'with sadness of heart'...get a clue. As soon as someone says "he wanted this war", you show your ignorance of what's going on in the world. You can't just say "peace" to Saddam and wait to get it. I repeat myself: with great sadness of heart. I DO mean it. I thought I had taken a lot of time to write and document a lot of facts that those willing to work can easily verify. Bush did want this war. It has not been proven that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11. I was watching the news today, and they satetd that during the next day, they expected our soldiers to kill 15000 Repulican Guard. These are people. They have NOT attacked us. WE went over there. They have wives and children. Somebody before you said I hate Republicans. Nope. Wrong. I just hate people who will LIE to the unsuspecting American people. Look at the Patriot act, and see how the freedoms that we all cherish are being slowly eroded, not by Saddam, but by Bush and Company. As Cheney said: It is UNPATRIOTIC to criticize the president. MY GOD! WOW. That floored me. Think about it. And think about how in the same breath your average Republican STILL criticizes President Clinton (the last to be ELECTED!). At least Clinton gave us prosperity. This idiot is bleeding the nation dry. Yes, CLinton had a hard time (no pun intended) keeping his weenie in his pants, but at least he worked for the AVERAGE American. How many of those in the top 1% income bracket are there in Iraq getting shot at? Not too many. Class warfare? Republican invention. I am tired of this. IMPEACH BUSH. Support our troops- they really do not need to be there. Diplomacy WOULD HAVE HAD WORKED. DIPLOMACY was the CIVILIZED way to handle this. We are a rogue nation, and the war was started AGAINST Constitutional principles (yes, the same Constitution Bush swore to 'preserve, protect, and defend). You guys went after Clinton for a BJ. Now its time to go after Bush for mass murder and war crimes. Our soldiers deserve ALL of our support and prayers. Our 'leadership' deserves Regime Removal. Truly Sad. And IF it is so important for us to be there doing regime change, why did we sentence all of Eastern Europe and a large part of Central Europe to the evils of the SOviets? It seems that us, as Americans, had no problem condeming hundreds of millions to 50 PLUS years of Soviet oppression then. Strange, huh? No one said that Saddam is good. He is not. But, unfortunately, neither is Bush for jerking the American people around. Best, And yes, with a heavy heart...

I enjoyed reading your webpage and will send it to all my contacts.

What a horrid feeling that someone would be saying in one moment how grateful they were for their achievement and award, and then quickly tossing in their political views for all to hear and ruining things for people trying to tone it down and act like respectful human beings during this terribly painful and stressful time of war.

Jesus taught Love and Peace. Peace through greater understanding. Anyone see the movie Gandhi. Rent the video and pay attention. He defeated the British with non-violence. The saviours message was clear. You Christians out there ---May God forgive those mindless sheep. Love is the message of the new testament... the mistakes of war were from the old testament... Jesus taught LOVE and PEACE. Before him many wars were fought... The world needed a change as the ways of war were NOT working. God gave us his son Jesus to teach Love and PEACE. Jesus taught Peace and Love. His message was clearly taught to change the mistaken belief that wars were won for God. History is written by the victors... and the Victors are not always right. Look at our criminals who get off because our courts fail to lock them up. Vengeance begets vengeance. We still have not learned. Appears to me not many of you see what history in the Bible is trying to say. I for one will go to a movie tonight.... and I pray the world will survive this sickening nonsense of killing and injustice. One final comment. You will pay higher taxes for all this. Your tax dollars make it to the pockets of a "few already rich people"... the "same people who profit from oil" and the "same people who will profit from this war." Bush - is just a puppet on their strings. You and I.... we are wage slaves to a system that hides the truth. We think we work for our take home pay... look at the left side of your pay check and think again. This is a war about OIL and MONEY..... and disrespect the work of 200 years to create a United Nations, to believe otherwise is narrow minded. AGAIN--> You will pay higher taxes for all this. Your tax dollars make it to the pockets of a "few already rich people"... the "same people who profit from oil" and the "same people who will profit from this war."

Far Out---The House of Representatives have recently voted on the 2004 budget which will cut funding for veteran's health care and benefit programs by nearly $25 billion over the next ten years. Aint that cool. It narrowly passed by a vote of 215 to 212, and came just a day after Congress passed a resolution to "Support Our Troops." Let me ask you a question... How exactly does this vote support our troops? Does leaving our current and future veterans without access to health care and compensation qualify as supporting them? I believe we should "Support our troops". YES. But if Bush is not supporting them, why do you support Bush? You better re-read what I just said. SCARY. Afyter researching this completely I found that Bush is not supporting our troops at all. He is sticking them out in harms way and reducing care and aid to our Vets when they come back from doing his dirty work. I'm going to a movie, you- best do some more homework. If Bush be against our troops, who be for them?

The commment of who do we think we are going into other countries and excerting our force. America has always been their for all nations around the world always ready to give a helping hand. As a super power it is also are responsibility to make sure those around us are not take advantage of, it is an American tradition. For the big brother to watch after others. We are quick to to forget that we have programs like DHS,the Judicial System, policemen, lawyers, principles, teachers and parents whose responsibility it is to protect all the same. Some are mor capable than others and some are not. As a world power it is also our responsibility to make this a better place. Not as dictators but as people willing to fight for what is right. We are very fortunite that we have an armed forces to do this for us and not someone with a gun to our head tewlling us to fight or our family will!

I believe that we no longer teach patriotism. Who are the actors in Hollywood that are a disgrace to our old time movie stars who were heroes in wars past? I do not go to movies at this time as the themes are as ugly and raunchy as the lives of some of the actors. Yes, send a message to Hollywood. The movies making the most money right now are the Lord of the Rings trilogy. - a movie of moral choice. Keep up the good work. Anne.

I agree with her 100%. I don't think Movie Stars should influence our people as much as they do. As she said they are no different than anyone else. I haven't gone to a movie theatre for quite some years but I sure would boycott them now for the sake of our children. I quit going for my own sanity before. I am Greylady417 on the internet.

Those in Hollywood will all be too eager to take the starring rolls in the movies that will be sure to follow this. All they know is pretend. They are blind to the people in Iraq being raped or murdered just because Saddam is in power. How do they expect us to just stand by and not do anything? The man is evil. And they say that America is in it for the oil? Let them stop driving those big expensive cars and SUV's!! Tell mr. moore to start walking he could use it!!

God Bless You. I couldn't have said it better myself. The Bible show where God has used war over and over again to serve his purpose. Many feel if we turn our backs - things will disappear. Saddam has tortured too many for too long. Nobody likes war, but sometimes there is no other choice. How can anyone turn their backs on the horrid this man could continue to do - not only in his country , but in ours. Sept 11th appearantly was not BOLD enough for some to get the hint!

If you don't like the way they represent you, show it at the polls next time but don't demoralize our brave troops by publicly showing your disrespect. As for the Hollywood spoiled brats, if you want to use your status to degrade someone, go to Iraq and degrade Saddam and see how that all works out for you! Doyle McAlister, Oklahoma.

They could be in a prison camp, right along the side of us and not in their limelight. I love GOD and COUNTRY. They need to think about what this country has done for them and ask what can I do for my country. Be a giver instead of a taker. Or let them go over there ( not for a week or two like some of them do)for a year or two and live in proverty and under an unjust rule.

My wife and I are with you 100%. No movies for as long as it takes them to "act" like true Americans. Truthfully, I believe they will have to "act" as they really do not have it in them to love this country. They love only the money and have lost touch with what it takes to love anything important. Their actions are only contributing to undermining our war efforts as they attack our leaders and our military while letting an evil dictator and his army "off the hook". These people lie somewhere between "God fearing" Americans and the lowest on the earth, closer to the Iraqi mentality then to the mentality it took to build this country. No, they are not any smarter than "us". As a matter of fact, they are not close in mentality to the 78% who love this country and support the effort. Thank goodness we have none of their kind over there in Iraq or we surely would lose the war and the respect of the world at the same time. I don't believe I can ever feel good in a movie theater again. I do hope 78% of us feel the same way.

I think it is perfectly all right to disagree with the president, when it's peacetime, after all, I did when Clinton was in there. HOWEVER, when we are at war and our young men and women are putting their lives on the line so that we may continue to have that right, we OWE them our support and prayers. Without their efforts and sacrificies, we won't retain that right very long. UNITED WE WILL STAND ! It bothered me that we were taking the first strike in this war, but remembering 9/11, it was the terrorists who started it. I personally encourage Bush and the Congress to adopt a policy such as the Jews have. Israel doesn't put up with that terrorist crap... they retalliate fast and hard, no beating around the bush. I'm not Jewish, but in my opinion, their policy is one to be admired. "If you take a crack at me, you'll get it back fast and twice as hard." Not long ago, I saw a bumper sticker.... First Iraq, then France, then Hollywood... Not a bad idea. J. Bell Slidell, LA

While I am a strong believer in everyone's right to voice their opinion on war or any other subject, there is such a thing a responsibility. To disagree with the current war before it started was one thing, but since we are at war, the time has come to put away our differences and support our country and our military. No matter what may be wrong with the USA, and there is much, our country is still the best country in the world to live in - I am proud to be American. For those folks who continue to critize and make statements to the effect that they are ashamed to be American, I don't know many Americans that would be upset if they moved to another country. Of course, I don't know many countries that would grant them citizenship and allow them to talk the way they talk in America. But you know, if they are ashamed of being American, perhaps they wouldn't mind living in Iraq or China or Russia or some other country.

I have to say that I hate the fact that we have to be at war, but as an American and a soldier this war was doomed to happen one day. He is a terrible man and even if he wasn't behind 9-11 he would soon be behind an act with the same intent. What did Hollywood think on 9-11. Did they speak poorly because we (the USA) wanted to go after Bin Laden. How would they feel if it had really hit home for them. The whole war hits home for me...

The problem with this type of rant is that it is a hasty generalization. You cannot lump all people of a population segment into the same batch. We agree with what is said about Sean Penn and Barbara Streisand and those like them but the message fails because it links all Hollywood with them and that is a logical fallacy. It cannot be possible that everyone in Hollywood is of the same mind as these two people. Too bad this kind of ranting weakens the intended message or idea. How can we try to put many people out of work because the minority are not loyal americans.

By Heavens what a wonderful site, and not only boycott them for their unAmerican activities but the filth they practice on and off the screen in the name of professionals. A century two or ago actors and actresses were treated as prostitutes and those these days have proven the treatment was correct. Why are they idolized, doesn't the Bible speak against idol worship? Thank you for starting this page!

i see how it is. people dont like protesters, so you boycott hollywood. do you know how much people in hollywood make? they wouldn't be paid that much if they had no audience. this is a waste of time, and in a way isn't the president an actor too? think about it.
