    "not wholesome" is codeword for nudity and sexual entendre - "wholesome is codeword for "no sex but lots of violence is OK"
    Ill take sexual content over violence anytime.

    Yes, I would RETHINK this one; but at least Hastings allows ALL programming with ALL persuasions, political, religious and otherwise (unlike the shareholder abusing Brian Roberts of Comcast who FORCES Al Jazeera on subscribers and keeps out those channels that HE doesn't want customers to have access to).

     

    That said, I wouldn't call Hanoi Jane "venerable" by any stretch of the imagination.

    Fortunately, there is a whole generation that is not stuck in the past. It will do just fine. As good as "Orange is the new Black". "Treason" is our congress calling Putin a great leader for political gain and not closing ranks around our President when the country is facing a serious situation; thus aiding and abetting the "enemy" by condoning what has transpired by the annexing by Russia of the Crimea. Trumps sitting on a Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. History has proven that that War was unjustified and a false flag brought on by the Gulf of Tokin non-incident. Vietnam now has a club Med...so much for the domino theory. 55,000 Americans dead...3 million Vietnamese. My brother fought that "War" and was awarded a purple heart and Silver Star. He never thought Jane Fonda was a traitor. She was simply making a statement that the war was not winnable and unjust. History proved her correct. Move on..it was over 45 years ago.

    You are quite right about Vietnam, but please also have caution concerning the new "false flags" that are being waived this month by our Russia-hating neo-cons.

     

    Anyway, concerning Jane Fonda, I recall a Family Circus cartoon from about two decades ago, in which the husband noticed his wife exercising to a Jane Fonda video. She was giving him a pained look and he had to quickly explain himself, "No dear, when I said, 'Not bad for an older woman,' I meant Jane Fonda, not you."

    You are all that's wrong with America...enjoy your laugh. Sad that people like you are not able to understand the nature of politic's ... there is no magic wand to fix what is broken in this country. Ignorance is a quality embraced by many with little or no regard for the facts or what is actually taking place or the long term ramifications of over reaction. No one has a solution to the current events taking place...no one. Caution is the game plan...world war 111 is not an option. If you've never been in war, never seen the horror it leaves behind, then it is not yours to judge. In truth perhaps the moron is you.
