Can you explain what Liberal values land people in prison?

Divorce creates single parent homes not political ideology.
The statistics are glaring our prisons and welfare rolls are filled with bastards. Bastards are born out of wedlock. No divorce required.

There's a lot of money with conservatives so what has stopped them from getting studios, finding good actors who are conservatives, building movie theaters, tv stations, starting a Netflix type business, etc?

I would think that the audience would be there based on the Hollywood hatred here. There must be some reason that no one has done it. Look at what Tyler Perry has done just by focusing on the black community. Conservatives make up a larger percentage than black people.

Instead of expecting Hollywood to change, why don't conservatives get off their soapbox and do something about it?
Nobody will watch, they won't make any money, and won't attract the best talent. It will go bust fast, there is only one Hollywood.

you decide which professions are more important to a society's survival.
What a surprise, another example of the cons distaste for education. Keep 'em stupid, easier to brainwash. And cons are doing a fine job keeping their base stupid.

Hollywood has run out of ideas. Everything nowadays is a rehashing of old themes. That is why "Star Wars" movies always guaranteed to be the biggest blockbuster of the year. George Lucas is a freaking billionaire!

How many new concept Hollywood movies that came out in the last 20 years are worth watching over and over again?

You are so off the mark - distaste for education indeed. Are you calling a farmer stupid? Are you calling new and repaired infrastructure performed by construction workers and engineers stupid?

If not for these stupid people - liberals would dry up and die. Liberals want a Utopia - a Walden's Farms - they don't accept that everything will never be a kumbaya society. Wanting fantasy and accepting reality is hard for them.

No one is against education - but kids don't even learn the basics now and who's fault is that - remember Ebonics? Even Jesse Jackson was against that.

No, I'm right on the mark but thanks for your concern.

Both are important. American Conservatives love to downplay the importance of art and entertainment but when you look back through history, you see that the arts are a defining aspect of any culture. The question is; why in our culture does conservative entertainment suck so much? The church once gave us some of the greatest art and music in world history. Why is it today that all Christian entertainment can be is either cheesy, poorly done alternatives to secular entertainment or propaganda pieces like God's Not Dead?

You're clueless. You would be surprised at the number of talented conservatives but they have to keep low profiles else they are black listed by liberals who control Hollyweird.

Not a distaste for education. Why else would conservatives attend college, and head out to the working world?

Instead, they have a distaste for a lifetime in the education world. I have lots of teachers in my family, many at the college level. They are the family members that are most anxious when living in the "real" world. They've clung to academia as a way to avoid branching out, and choose to stay safe in the environment they've spent their entire lives in. That, and the ones who took the jobs to get 3 months off every year.

Yeah well...Conservatives canít get enough of building prisons and locking people up. Thatís partly why.

Classic Hollywood was a mixed bag. They had LOTS of crappy movies. And their predisposition towards racist stereotypes is legendary.

Moreover, Republicans THEN and Republicans NOW are two different things.


There are tons of great independent films that are incredible. We have a theater in Tucson that shows nothing but indie films for the most part.

Conservatives canít make those either...well, not good ones.
That's not Hollywood. So thanks for proving my point.
