“But Iam sure he has enough money that my not seeing another Movie of his he will be alright but I will never see another Hanks movie.”

While I agree that you have the right to never see another Tom Hanks movie, something we can not lose sight of is Tom Hanks has the right to support whoever he wishes for President. I will not boycott a person for their beliefs. My Father in Law is a Yellow Dog Democrat, and I like him very much as a person. Do I get angry and frustrated with him about it? Sure, but at the end of the day it’s what we’re founded on.
Where I will boycott the Hollywood morons is when they decide to make insults against over half of the country. For instance, when Julia Roberts announced that Republicans were found in the dictionary between repugnant, and reptilian. Well this repugnant, reptile will never give her a flippin’ dime.
There are too many of these examples to list, but to my knowledge Mr. Hanks has kept his comments along these lines fairly apolitical. I also know that Hanks, and Steven Speilberg (another lefty, I know) gave us a cinematic treasure like “Saving Private Ryan”. A film that I believe should be required viewing for every child above the age of 15. Also “Band of Brothers”, and “The Pacific” are another two noteworthy pieces of work.
Again, if you choose to never see another Tom Hanks film because he supports Obozo, that is certainly your right, but doesn’t that make us just like the Libs in Hollywood that won’t hire a Tom Selleck, or a Stephen Baldwin, just because they’re Conservative?
