How to fail in Hollywood
Deseret News, by Jim Bennett

Original Article

Posted By:Stallion_Cornell, 2/15/2013 2:30:30 PM

Having grown up in Los Angeles and spending a good chunk of my youth thinking I was going to make my living as an actor, I am occasionally asked what it takes to make it in Hollywood. Given that I did not, in fact, make it in Hollywood, I’m probably not the right guy to ask. However, I do have one bit of expert advice on how to not make it in Hollywood. So for those looking for the key to failure, here it is: Walk into an audition wearing a Republican T-shirt.

Comments:
Concrete evidence of Hollywood´s lefty bias - as if we needed any.

She could certainly imagine someone voting Republican.

It would have come out something like All In The Family.

IOW, liberal fantasy.

So in the end, senator Joseph McCarthy was 100% right about the Communist infiltration in Hollywood! Most of these people make me sick.

Pauline Kael, film critic, said somewhat the same thing when Nixon got elected. She couldn´t understand how he won, because nobody she knew had voted for him.

Naked, unabashed bigotry.

Narrow, parochial, provincial, close-minded, small, ugly, sad, rigid, arrogant and ignorant people.

They are everything they ever accused middle America of being.

Henry Winkler, aka The Fonz, was exceptionally gracious when I saw him at ComicCon not long ago.He was considerably less gracious, however, when he took to Twitter on the day of the massacre in the U.S. Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., to offer his grim assessment of the grisly murders. Here is what he wrote: Another shooting in Wash D.C. Please America do nothing to promote gun control .because thats [sic] how we roll until we have all shot each other - While I share Fonzie’s eagerness to prevent future gun violence, I question the efficacy of his prescription to do so.

Abortion consensus

Few, if any, political topics are as controversial as abortion — mainly because it is so difficult to find any common ground here in the United States. Yet internationally, there is more of a consensus on the subject than many people realize. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina recently appeared on ABC´s "This Week" and made an observation that may come as a surprise to many abortion-rights advocates. "There are only four countries in the world that have, that legalize abortion after five months," she noted. She identified those countries as being China, North Korea, Canada and the United States.

Where´s the respect for religion on TV?

As “The Bible,” the History Channel’s blockbuster miniseries, broke ratings records, it also likely astounds credulous Hollywood executives who, despite overwhelming evidence of the massive pent-up demand for quality religious entertainment, are always caught flat-footed when such entertainment is rewarded with ratings, ticket sales and lots of cash. Say, remember when Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” was supposed to be this weird, dreary flop but then went on to gross more than $600 million? Look at the number of “Star Wars” copycats Hollywood has produced

My grandfather, Wallace F. Bennett, retired from the United States Senate in 1974, four years before my personal chronology reached into double digits. Thus I have no memory of him serving in Congress, but as an adult, I’ve come to appreciate his legacy, particularly in two areas — his strong support for the 1964 landmark Civil Rights Act and his 1954 introduction of a formal resolution of censure against Sen. Joe McCarthy for acting in a manner “contrary to good morals and senatorial ethics.”

Quentin Tarantino and his films

I’ve had a number of odd jobs in my time, but one of the oddest was when I worked as a profanity counter. As I recounted in an earlier column, I used to get paid to sit through movies and chronicle all the naughty bits. (Snip) After recording 273 utterances of the most notorious R-rated profanity in the movie "Reservoir Dogs," I decided that I would never again voluntarily subject myself to another flick written or directed by Quentin Tarantino.

With a week and a half to go until Election Day, a new poll indicates the race for arguably the most important battleground state remains very close. According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday, President Barack Obama holds a four point advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the contest for Ohio's much fought over 18 electoral votes.

In the days before the first debate in Denver, President Obama held more than a four-point lead in the Real Clear Politics average, and Romney had been left for dead by most of the media. Then the debate came, and overnight Romney seemingly rid himself of the weaknesses that had been tacked on to him by over $100 million dollars in negative advertising. Now here we are a few weeks later with a dead heat in nationwide polls.

The Most Un-American Speech
Barack Obama Has Ever Delivered

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
