I'd support a "Shut up and get a real job" rally. Or maybe, "Shut up and act your age." Or perhaps, "Shut up and act like you're packing up and leaving the hemisphere."
That would be THIS marvelous creation:
I'm always amazed that so many who are merely adept at mouthing the words of those with more intelligence and talent, actually think that they are intelligent.
That is just cool. Wish I could beeee in Californeeee that day. Hope you get some TV coverage.

Our inspiration for this theme, of course, is:
Worse, much of America acts as though that is true.
Christians are evil.
Capitalism creates oppression; government creates opportunity.
Traditional gender roles are artificial but feminism and homosexuality are government-protected lifestyles.
Self-esteem is paramount; government must undertake to guarantee each citizen-victim self-esteem no matter the cost.
The ACLU is good, because destroying religion and silencing believers are protected by the Constitution and the First Amendment; The NRA is bad because it defends the Constitution.
Standardized IQ tests are racist; racial quotas and affirmative action are not. Conservatives are racists; everybody knows that Black people can't make it on their own without big-buck government assistance programs and Hollyweirdos to proselytize the message 24/7.
Abortion is a natural right. The Founders just forgot to put it in the Constitution.
Normal sex is perverted. Threesomes, bestiality, necrophilia, homosexuality are just new ways to get a thrill.
Moral indignation is a liberal's standard strategy for endowing our output with superiority.
Victimization is our basic belief by which we blame and find others responsible for our own personal failures, then expect taxpayers, deep-pocketed individuals, or the courts to bail us out. It feels good to be in the throes of "victimization" and either A) causing victims, B) concocting victims, C) playing victim, D) commiserating over victims, or E) creating another class of victims to bleed over.
It's a liberal's duty to treat Middle America in the manner of raising mushrooms, that is to say, keep them in the dark and feed them lots of horse manure.
Women are to be valued only for their cleavage.
The traditional family is archaic, constricting, with no redeeming value. Parents that try to guide their children's choices are restrictive. Kids need to be "free".
Extreme movie and TV violence and explicit sex for the thrill of it is good because it is profitable.
Hollywood firmly believes that 24/7 of the sexually salacious and violent TV, movies and music we produce are not harming kids and the culture.
OTOH, we also believe----with the religious fervor of Tammy Faye Baker---- that a single 15-sec commercial will compel tens of millions of Americans into thousands of stores to buy billions of dollars worth of soap, soup, breakfast cereal and cars.
We previously reported the conservative group, Citizens United, planned to erect two pro-Bush billboards in Hollywood "thanking" Hollywood for Bush's reelection. As planned, the signs were created, coinciding with the buildup to Oscar night. However, one of those tongue-in-cheek billboards was seriously vandalized Wednesday night, when a Swastika was painted on President Bush's forehead.
Few Angeleans saw the disfigured sign though, since Citizens United anticipated the vandalism, and had previously arranged with the sign company that their billboards would be immediately repaired if, in fact, they were damaged.
True to their word, the overnight damage was repaired within hours...
ahh. yes, she can be inspiring.
It's difficult to believe the industry is upfront about the revenue from shows we see and hear--like slobola Howard Stern and Ellen Degenerate---and whether advertisers are being told the truth about ratings, which affect ad rates they are required to pay.
Example, many remain skeptical that the smutty Stern show or the Ellen DeGenerate crapola are hits, or even partially succesful.
We need to determine whether the networks are cooking the books, whether they are fraudulenetly pumping ratings numbers in order to sell ads and keep politically-correct shows like Degenerate on the air, and whether advertisers were co-opted into buying ads, and paid higher ad rates by providing false ratings.
We need to know whether networks deceived audiences, and provided false ratings in order to keep losing shows on the air.
We need to know whether broadcasters filed false documents with the FCC with regard to its broadcasting practices, and whether slobolas like Stern and Degenerate filed misleading state and federal documents.
Finally, we need to know whether broadcasters made accurate staments to the IRS about its advertising income, and its corporate income and outgo.
The IRS should determine whether broadcasters misused corporate reserve accounts, concealing losses, inflating asset values and improperly accounting for transactions, as well as deferring profits into reserve accounts, improperly shifting capital funding to other projects to hide illegal payments, and so on.
Any of these practices could jeopardize the financial interests of stockholders and compel the SEC to step in.
Anyone with concerns about these issues, you should contact the SEC here: enforcement@SEC.gov.
Most importantly--- let's not forget that whatever advertisers pay for TV ads impacts on consumers b/c advertising costs are passed on to consumers.
The SEC, FTC, and the DOJ should take steps to ascertain whether the HOllywood entertainment business and the ABCCBSNBC netwroks are in accordance with requirements of the Sarbanes Oxley Act.
I am not as kind as you.
Not only are they masters at mouthing others' ideas, they are also perfect mimics to the point that it is their second nature to lie with a straight face.
Nary a ripple on the ol' Lie-O-meter
Responsibility about what? I just think they should keep their left-wing politics to themselves, otherwise the marketplace should rule as to what does or doesn't get made. I don't want the moral majority determining what kind of movies get made - that would totally suck.
Billboard Delivers Right Jab To Hollywood

LOS ANGELES -- A conservative group is giving thanks where thanks is not wanted.
Citizens United posted a billboard thanking Hollywood stars for contributing to the re-election of President George W. Bush.
The billboard includes the text "4 More Years ... Thank You Hollywood!" It features pictures of Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Affleck, Chevy Chase, Martin Sheen, Barbra Streisand and Sean Penn.
"Using a billboard, thanking Hollywood for helping re-elect George Bush is somewhat in fun, but also delivers a serious message," said Dave Bossie, president of Citizens United. "That is, every action has an equal and opposite reaction."
Citizens United is the same group that mounted a counterattack against Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" called "Celsius: 41.11."
The billboards are more than one block from the site of the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood and Highland, site of the Academy Awards presentation. Citizens United said it has plans for more billboards in the area.

Or maybe just a "Shut up, period" rally.
