Apparently not.

It's only torture if Conservatives do it.

When Lefties do it, it's *Art*.

I saw that on TV a while back. While making a commitment to serve might be laudable, some of that stuff is disturbing. If I ever manage to land a teaching job, I hope to provide my future students with some balance against all the left-leaning curriculum being pushed these days...

I pledge NEVER to PLEDGE to A PERSON unless he is GOD! I pledge NEVER to PLEDGE to a president but I will pledge allegiance to the flag of the US of A as long as it stands for what our founding fathers shaped it to be a "REPUBLIC not a commune,socialist or communist state" for which it stands ONE NATION UNDER GOD not OBAMA for liberty and justice for ALL

Oh, the hell with it.

The best part is that none of these celebrities actually do anything. They talk about what needs to be done, then pat themselves on their backs for "doing" something by talking about how people need to be doing something.

Kind of like Bono flying around the world on his disaster tourism tours to "bring attention" to various things. He doesn't actually DO anything, as far as I know.

So, in the end what we're teaching our kids (other than mindless following the "cool" crowd) is that if you talk about doing stuff, you don't actually have to do stuff.

Because that's for the peasants.

I am willing to bet that, overall, the readers of the blog are a better read, and better educated crowd than those telling us to man the barricades. If memory serves be correctly, most of the theater arts types in college spent most of their time trying to be noticed - something that wasn't all that hard to do when you spent most of your time in the dining hall dodging their frisbees. That having been said, I do believe, I will skip their suggestions.

They're not opposed to anything if it furthers their agenda...

Oh, how it brings tear to eye! Oleg remembers well singing praises of Most Beloved Leader Stalin in Red Pioneers class under giant 50 meter portrait of the Great Man! That, and denouncing family members to State for counterrevolutionary thinking. Good times!

Comrade Oleg is disremembering our freshman political science class. He must be reformed.

Hi, I'm from Brazil.
It's not my habit to intrude, but, watching the video from my beloved country (where we have a president that is as stupid as chavez, morales, zelaia, that-guy-from-Iran)I really felt FEAR. Are those so-called artists dumb or anything? Oh, Lord, I almost fell from my chair when I heard Ashton "Whatever" saying that he will defend his country. Ha! I bet he flees from cockroaches! He surely will faint at the sight of blood. Looks like Mickey Club all over again. Only with grown people in it - so to say.
For much less they destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah!
(Oh, yes, I will be in Washington at Sept 23. I hope I dont have to make this pledge ...)
