    Not agreeing with someone's political philosophy is a little bit different than Mel Gibson's arrogant treatment of a police officer, his vile racist comments about Jews, and his filthy toilet mouth directed at the mother of his child. I agree with you, though. He doesn't need anyone's forgiveness. He just wants a job. (Dirty Harry was blatantly political?)

    Alec Baldwin is a dickhead. Most of hollywood screw each other like Minks on viagra and benzedrine. Lindsay Lohan, Drew Barrymore, Ally Sheedy and a few others like her have done more drugs than the Grateful Dead's Europe 72 tour-and that included the band, the roadies and a million or so deadheads.


    they are friggin entertainers. I saw the Grateful dead even if Bob Weir supported Clinton or Mondale. I watched plenty of Martin Sheen's movies because he is good at what he does even if he's a complete assclown politically and gets arrested for his LOOK AT ME protests.

    and while Mel might be a Jew Bashing bastard he isn't out supporting black september, Hamas, or some of the other scumbags that seem to be popular with some of our liberal elites

    Personally I never understood the obsession that people have when it comes to hollywood stars. Why are people so interested in what they do, say, wear, eat, etc etc? I don't even bother to memorize a hollywood persons name unless I've seen them in 3-4 GOOD movies/shows. Beyond that I could care less about thier lives.

    This. He hasn't done anything to me personally, so why would he need or want my forgiveness?

    Maybe if I cared about something as irrelevant as that. Who cares?

    Re: Can You Forgive Mel Gibson.

    I can. I like a lot of his movies, but my only issue is that he doesn't seem to want people to forgive him. He seems to embrace this attitude towards him like he is some sort of martyr. That makes it harder.

    Way back in the day, actors were considered the dredges of society. Oh. Wait.

    Forgive him for being in Hamlet? Sure.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Personally, I would rather have 10 mel gibsons than all those damn Baldwin Bros. Is there no end to them or do they scurry out of the woodwork every few years like a pestilence of biblical proportions?
