Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default American Flag Backlash Could Hurt ‘First Man’ at the Box Office

Quote:
The film, a biographical depiction of the Neil Armstrong-led historic space mission to the moon, will launch in 3,600 theaters nationwide and is expected to take in upwards of $20 million.

Yet the success of First Man may depend on whether viewers are willing to embrace its internationalist theme. Last month, it emerged that Chazelle had apparently omitted any references to the mission as an American achievement as well as any presence of the American flag being planting on the moon — a decision the directed said was not a political statement.

Ryan Gosling, who plays the role of Armstrong, also argued the mission was more of a “human achievement.” “I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling told The Daily Telegraph.

It will probably be a hit among the Hollyweird bunch. But Gosling and the director of the movie can kiss my ass. I won't be spending money to watch it.

I urinate upon revisionist marxist propaganda. The WORLD did not put a man on the Moon. We did.

Socialism... not only money redistribution, but achievement redistribution.

The socialist, I hate America types were not the audience
for this movie in the first place.
The movie makers alienated their only paying audience.
I wouldn't see that movie at gun point.

I attended the University of Cincinnati 1974-1979. During that time I used to see Mr Armstrong walking on campus quite a bit, as he was a professor in the Aeronautics engineering school then. He was a fairly small guy...I'd guess 5"7 or 5'8 at the most and compact in build. He sort of stuck out as he always wore a smart 3-piece suit & carried a briefcase, along with being clean shaven and having short hair, as opposed to the hairy and sandal-wearing geek look popular for our educators at that time. He always looked to me like he was vaguely pissed-off, & walked with a fast gait and his eyes turned down. Ryan Gosling looks NOTHING like him.

I always wanted to speak to him & tell him how much I admired his accomplishments, but I really think he might have punched me in the face.

They used to fly around the pyramids back when they wuz kangs you know. Why not Will Smith? He would only be payback for our white privledge. I think someone from the gay community should play Buzz Aldren and a Muzzie Michael Collins. They could plant the Mexican flag on the moon, it's only right and makes up for whitey.

Geez we were on some God unknown mountain top on the Cambodian border and the C.O. came over and said we just landed a man on the moon. Scared me and half the guys we thought he went frigging bat wing crazy.
No communication with the outside world so hell we never knew anything about the mission.

Damn straight we did. The world can come and visit our space center ard marvel at what is possible when American know how meets American imagination, then mixes with pure American courage. ...p.s. we did have a few Germans around in our "know how" department!
