  1. Interesting discussion of how Governator’s “conservative” approach to governmental control has led to explosive budget increases across the board.

    Fun stuff, and very informative.

  2. hope they handle this because seems to be No end in sight with respect to the economy and the same old revolving doors keep a turning

  3. One thing Joe is right about, the current recovery plan is not big enough.

  4. Big Hollywood is the Suxor. The right wing echo chamber at it’s insipidiest. Reason would do well to sever all ties.

  5. I just hope Obama does not turn out like the many before him, lip service and broken promises and in Dictator Bushes case, Lies, lots of LIES.


  6. The guy running big hollywood is as big of a jerk as the people he’s ranting against — his site should last 6months at most…

  7. I never realized what an insufferable persecution-complexed prick Breitbart is. Getting the Right to define themselves by how much they piss off liberals or hate Obama is a loser’s game, and I think most conservatives cringe when they see this game played. The likes of Breitbart seem determined to extend their time wandering in the desert every time they open their mouths.

  8. Big Hollywood is the biggest Pity Party on the internet. Post after post of “Woes is me, I’m a conservative who is shunned by the liberal elite”. These are interspersed with posts about how some successful movie/song/TV show is really conservative, if you just look at it correctly. Yawn.

  9. Seems to me that challenging a leftist stronghold like Hollywood is a waste of resources. Why not try for some other media where there’s less stagnation and more room for growth, like video games. Or porn. Not sure how one would go about getting the libertarian message across via porn (other than by the mere fact of its existence), but there’s a lot of creative minds out there, someone could figure it out.
