Tom Hanks, smug moron.

He is a great performer.  And a smug moron who’s already made up his “mind” for 2012.

“If you would have told me a few years ago that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ would be repealed and about a billion jobs at General Motors and Chrysler would have been saved…

Math is hard, isn’t it, Tom?  Did you forget about the seventeen trillion people who’ve lost jobs because of your guy?  The quadrillions in new debt?

It must be nice to be so rich you can laugh off unemployment and depressions and the debt-enslavement of an entire nation. 

On the other hand, look what it does to critical thinking.

I've accepted that all of you are socially superior to me. But no pretending that any of you are rational.

    What a clueless idiot.

    He must have had some low expectations.

    I like how people lie so much about ‘losing’ jobs at GM and such. Considering that restructuring would virtually never result in a company, especially one that size, going away it’s an inane claim.
    Might they have been sold? Yes.
    No more GM? No way.
    The real problem was that a formal restructuring would have nuked the unions. Their pension and benefits liabilities would have been forcibly reduced. The union shop rules would have been canned for the duration of the restructure possibly. Their pay might well have been reduced; and such a reduction exempted from the negotiated contracts because it was a restructure.
    Basically: It would have been a damn good thing for the company and given it the ability to refocus and actually be competitive.

    Gay marriage just needs to stop, not because of any underlying ‘don’t do that’ but because there is no right to marry. Period. It is a STATE LICENSED act. If it is licensed (and taxed in this case) it is not a right. It is the authority of the states to govern it and they have the right to give or take it from anyone they please.
    The best argument that can be made is all marriage is unconstitutional as it is a primarily religious institution!

      I’d be perfectly willing to let states wanting to have gay marriages to have them, per the 10th Amendment. But only if we apply the 10th across the board and the Fed only does what the Fed is required to do. No way does the left get to pick and choose.

      • MG says:

        Right now that’s a problem because of intent.

        Proponents are not asking for an in-state function only, they want a state to allow it so they can force other states to recognize it. If the desire was for a purely in-state act then I agree, it should only glancingly cause other states to notice its existence; it should not be a way for people to obtain something banned in their state just to force their state to recognize it.

        Further, considering a case in my state where someone tried to avoid divorce court process on the grounds that this state didn’t recognize gay marriage (a different state’s marriage license had been issued to the parties); a major problem is that they are not seeking equality. They’re seeking separate but equal, in fact.

        The constitution should be more closely followed anyways, for all issues. From an activist judge using a non-existant excuse to strike down a formal state amendment process to other idiocies; it seems an age of fools as the baby-boomers rot their way through congress.

      Very good points MG … Obama speaking to ACORN before elected said he would confer with Andy stern before negotiating deals for the US … awesome .. a president that will put unions first, not the country. Now he uses his power to threaten companies like Boeing that go to non-union dominated states. This joker doesn’t even wear a mask … just a basic union tool, with a big goofy grin.

    The only thing I’m going to say about gay marriage is quoting what my buddy from Texas said about it:

    “Pfft! It amazes me how a bunch of people are fighting to be part of a ritual that makes millions of people miserable every year, ends in divorce, and losing half your shit.”

    IMO, gay marriage serves no purpose,thus it’s irrelevant. The primary function of marriage is to protect the offspring. Thus I think there should only be special tax treatment, etc, for married couples if there is offspring. No children? Tough luck for you.

    • wormme says:

      I’d like to do away with special tax treatment entirely. If you could limit it to children-based…but it never stops if permitted anywhere.

  3. midwest bill says:

    Right MB … there are many marriages of convenience now … old folks want to share benefits from a spouse. Why should a (conveniently) married person get to suck up benefits that a spouse earned, while a single person doesn’t get any such special consideration?

    Once the kids are out of the house, cut off most special considerations then too. We are mostly past the day of Mom staying home with the kids … if she did and they divorce, that can be considered in the settlement.

    And I’m not buying any more wedding presents either … how about giving me some “not married” presents? LOL

    This guy is a complete moron (not Tom Hanks, the author of this cr*p article)

    • wormme says:

      Of course. Nice the way you laid out the argument for my stupidity, rather than just tossing a unsupported ad hominem grenade.

      You feel you’re a genius, don’t you?

  5. AntiBubaney says:

    Might as well forget what Bush did and blame the economy on Obama and ignore actors that endorsed everything Bush did

    • wormme says:

      Or even hold everyone to their own professed standards. In 2008 Obama called Bush’s deficit spending as unpatriotic. That would put Barack’s spending somewhere between unpatriotic and treasonous.

      This is not news to those who have intellectual standards instead of social ones.
