Study: Gun Violence In Movies On The Rise

Movie Violence

 

” A new study finds there are even more shootings in PG-13 movies than in R rated films.

Researchers found that when the new ratings were introduced in 1984, gun violence in G films went down.

In R rated movies it stayed the same. But gun violence went up dramatically in PG-13 films.

Gun violence in PG-13 movies has more than tripled since 1985.”

Wal-Mart Will Meet With Holder, Not Biden

 

 

 

”  Wal-Mart’s envoy to the White House’s gun violence task force will meet with Attorney General Eric Holder, not the group’s leader Vice President Joe Biden, an administration official said Thursday.

Wal-Mart is one of ten retailers meeting with Holder Thursday, the Justice Department said. Other stores expected to be represented at the 3:15 p.m. ET meeting include Dick’s Sporting Goods and Bass Pro Shops.

Biden is scheduled to meet with gun owners and gun rights groups Thursday, including the National Rifle Association. Later in the day he’ll sit down with representatives of the entertainment and video game industries.

The NRA is sending James J. Baker, the head of its federal relations office, to meet with the vice president and other administration officials who comprise the panel, which is charged with developing proposals to stem gun violence. Those measures will be presented the President Barack Obama upon the conclusion of the meetings.”

  We’d be very sorry if we have to cease doing business with Cabelas . Gander Mountain and Bass Pro Shops would be missed as well . But make no mistake , we will vote with our pocketbooks . Any business that chooses to enjoy and profit by some of the Constitutional rights of this country yet will be bullied into abandoning the one most precious to a large portion of it’s customer base should not be surprised when they face a sudden downturn in their bottom line .

 

 Remember , all this political theater is an attempt to manufacture a crisis where none exists in the interest of further a political agenda . Banning gun-ownership in the US .

Tax Deal Is A Victory For Hollywood Cronyism

 

 

 

 

” Whereas “you guys”—by which Matthews meant the good guys, the Hollywood liberals—donate to Obama “for cultural reasons because you share values with the president.”

“That’s exactly right,” Reiner said. “And it’s interesting. But the Hollywood community is the only donor base, as you call it, that would—that has no quid pro quo.”

Yes, it is interesting. It is interesting that Matthews and Reiner were so completely and totally ensconced in their blanket of self-righteousness that they never stopped to consider that “people on Wall Street and the business world, in Texas and around there,” might also donate to Republicans because they share Republican cultural values. “

 

No Quid Pro Quo Here …

 

” The sordid details of the fiscal cliff bill are more difficult to ignore. Once again the “only donor base” that “has no quid pro quo” saw its quo multiply nicely. The tax break that allows film and television studios to expense millions of dollars if they operate within the United States costs around $300 million a year. It was set to expire at the end of 2012. However, the efforts of Chris Dodd at the Motion Picture Association of America and of other Hollywood minions ensured that American taxpayers would provide this subsidy to Katzenberg and Spielberg and Clooney and company for at least another two years.”

 

Only In Obamerika Do Those Clamoring Loudest For Tax Hikes Receive The Best Tax Breaks

 

” The Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group has the most comprehensive catalogue of the gifts included in the fiscal cliff bill for Obama’s favorite constituencies. There is the Production Tax Credit, which benefits the alternative energy industry and its liberal benefactors. There is the exemption for New York City bonds, which is intended to help the city recover from a terrorist attack that occurred 11 years ago but which also helped line the pockets of Goldman Sachs and the future members of Democratic administrations employed there. There is a tax credit for maintaining railroad tracks for which BNSF Railway lobbied intensely. BNSF is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, which is of course the conglomerate operated by the billionaire Democratic donor and oddball Warren Buffett.”
