      Just a Cable show but still fairly compelling.

  • It’s funny how the liberials can write powerful stuff like that but when it comes to believing it or living ones life by it; they drop the ball. When conservative actors say things like that they are labeled hatemongers and racists.

      It’s funny, John, but your stereotypes don’t apply to me or any of the liberals I know.

      I have no idea who this guy is or what his politics are. I just found a lot to agree with in his words, starting with his central premise. But then, I’m just a liberal . . .

        Joel,

        Cait sent me the link and evidently it is from an HBO series and we can’t afford HBO so I couldn’t tell you for sure. I do believe the actor is Jeff Daniels.

          Heh. We can’t afford HBO either. I don’t know Jeff Daniels from Adam’s off ox, though.

    It’s from a show I devoured called ‘the newsroom’. Jeff Daniels plays a cable news anchor who struggles with some of the topics he touched on.

    FYI– in the show, he’s a registered Republican but frequently rants against the tea party and the likes of them. Good stuff. The show is fabulous.

      Thanks, Cait. I’ll add that to the list of TV shows to watch if I ever start watching TV again.

    I was touched to the very core of what was said in this clip. I don’t give a tinkers damn about politics much any more. I think both sides are full of self serving liars. But I care deeply for this country. And I am concerned about its future, not so much for myself, but for my children and grandchildren. He touches on something here as he points the finger at the present generation as being what is wrong with this nation. Maybe so. But who taught them? Or maybe I should say, who didn’t teach them the things and values that were passed to us? I am afraid, that the time of restoring this nation to its once proud status in a peaceful manner is well past. I hope I am wrong. But if blood must be shed again to restore its grandeur then so be it. Because what it is today is not what our forefather’s and countless numbers of brave people gave their lives for to give to us. God Bless America!! And God Bless and Protect our Troops!

      It was our generation that dropped the ball Clay. We are to blame.

        Meh.

        Every generation thinks that the next generation is going to hell in a handbasket. This is simple geezing.

        I’m not ashamed of myself or my generation. I’m not ashamed of my daughter or her generation. I don’t believe in collectivizing guilt. YMMV.
