Biden at the Oscars

Vice President Joe Biden at the Academy Awards Ceremony

          It should come as no surprise that Vice President Joe Biden would be an active participant in the Academy Awards Ceremony this year. After all, the Socialist Party (formerly known as the Democratic Party) owns Hollywood or is it the other way around. It should also come as no surprise that Vice President Biden would have to make an impassioned plea for college ‘kids’ to stop sexually assaulting one another.

          This is exactly the kind of behavior you might expect from children who were encouraged to ‘act transgender’ in kindergarten and taught sex education throughout elementary school by the abortion promoters of Planned Parenthood. And it doesn’t help the moral fabric of our society when the American Academy of Pediatrics (once a respected medical association, now a political action committee) encourages health care providers to prescribe birth control pills and provide condoms to tweens and teens. This only legitimizes sexual promiscuity and misconduct.

          Now that the Supreme Court has legislated that marriage can be between any two or more living creatures, they have essentially put the government’s stamp of approval on this kind of behavior. None of us should be surprised, then, when children subjected to these negative influences grow up to be brats who sexually assault one another when they get to college. All of this reinforces the importance of getting your children out of public schools any way you can and reaffirms the admonition to not waste time and money on college!

Conservative Hollywood Stars

Conservative Hollywood Stars, Past and Present

There are a surprising number of Hollywood stars who have made their conservative views known.  Many are now actively challenging the liberals who have wormed their way into tinsel town and tightened their grip on many aspects of hiring, production and financing.  The slow, agonizing death of Hollywood over the past several decades has almost certainly been hastened by these liberals who criticize the United States and attack everything it stands for, never mind the many personal benefits they have reaped from the opportunities made available to them by this great country.  One cannot help but have pity for these and the many other unfortunate individuals suffering from that strange malady known as ‘liberal guilt syndrome’.

With the help of our readers we are compiling a list of Hollywood stars, past and present, who love America and courageously speak out about its greatness.  For the purposes of this listing we will use a loose interpretation of ‘Hollywood stars’ to include entertainers of the stage, movies and television.  Please help us add to this list by submitting the names of conservative stars directly as a comment on this posting.  We salute the following Hollywood stars from the past and the present who unabashedly love this country and contribute to What Makes US Great.

Living Hollywood Legends

Living Legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood

It’s difficult to pinpoint the actual year that the Golden Age of Hollywood ended.  Nonetheless, most astute observers today would agree that there are but a few remaining signs of the halcyon days of this uniquely American institution, other than perhaps the Hollywood sign itself.  At one time there were hundreds and hundreds of stars of the stage and screen, each a unique personality with their own special talents.  Sadly, the movie industry in Los Angeles today has been reduced to a second-rate summer stock theatrical team of about twenty mediocre players who seem to be recycled through every movie that is being cranked out.

The Hollywood Sign

The Iconic Hollywood Sign

In recent years it has been painful to see who has been dubbed as the greatest actor or actress (we still prefer to make this gender distinction) or the most beautiful woman or the best looking man (Julia Roberts and George Clooney?  Give me a break!).  The new players suffer greatly when being compared to those from the Golden Age of Hollywood.  Who is the Bette Davis of today?  Or the Jimmy Stewart or the Ethel Merman, Red Skelton or Donald Meek of today?  We could go on and on!

Thankfully, there are yet a few of the greats still living and we are privileged to share the air with these towering icons of entertainment.  With the help of our readers, we are compiling a list of these stars to which we will add as more are brought to our attention.  For the purposes of this listing we will use a loose interpretation of ‘Hollywood star’ to include all entertainers of the stage, movies and television.

Please help us add to this list by submitting the names of living stars directly as a comment on this posting.  Sadly, we lost one of the great entertainers of the 40’s and 50’s, Jane Russell, as we were preparing this initial list.  Now there was a real beauty!  Her performance as Calamity Jane with Bob Hope in Paleface will live on as a classic forever.  We salute the following Living Stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood (golden stars of Hollywood indicated accordingly) and thank them for the years of great entertainment they have provided us.  They are truly part of What Makes US Great!
