We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The only thing surprising about Hollywood is that powerful leftists are starting to be held accountable for their actions.
Unfortunately, now that there's blood in the water, it'll probably turn into a full-blown witch hunt. Men who've done nothing more than make a clumsy pass will be run out of town along with the actual rapists.
Epicenter? Has DC reformed while I wasn't looking?

Homosexual behavior was always the "ultimate price" to be paid for a good looking male in Hollywood to be made into a "star". The tragic thing was that the extreme wealth and power and control of the media turned homosexuality into a subject to be taught to all of our children as acceptable behavior because maybe it's genetic. The idea to make that a "genetic" issue--thus avoiding criticism came from Hollywood and can be traced to the first time it was mentioned as "genetic" to a tv 'news' program back in the early 80's. I think it was Ted Koppel who interviewed some mom from Beverly Hills whose son just got jailed for repeated behavior in public restrooms. My o my--just think about it--the children of great wealth were growing up needing the adrenaline fix of all teen agers--to do something 'bizarre', 'bold', 'dangerous', but these kids were out of control and therefore the culture around them had to be changed. Maybe not that the full depth of depravity in this community is coming to light--maybe now we can force our teacher's unions to take another look at the demand that all of our children be 'made to do it'.
