    Keep working it. It's all you have.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    I just watched a movie that came out this year called "Beautiful Creatures".

    Beautiful Creatures (2013) - IMDb

    It has a scene where one of the characters played by Emma Thompson goes on about how terrorists, homosexuals and many other sinful people are going straight to hell.

    This is what she says

    "God our creator will condemn you to hell fire, along with terrorists, atheists, homosexuals, democrats, liberals, socialist...green peacing...and all the other unnatural abominations!"

    If you go by the outrage on this board, the character compared gays to terrorists and even worse green peacers.

    Where is the outrage from GLAAD against this movie or its producers.

    The rant is pretty close to what Robertson said.

    Why is GLAAD quiet on this one?

    Context, perhaps?
    Education.

    The point is that the character said about the same thing but we hear nothing from GLAAD.

    I mean the context of a character intentionally portrayed as a near-fanatical religious type, in a movie.

    THAT context.

    Wildly different examples you're comparing, here.

    So this movie is trying to portray God as a Republican?

    Well I don't know. They never mention which party God votes for.
