And as far as actors crying, so called "method" actors conjure up feelings from their past and actually cry real tears. More technically proficient actors carefully study the physiology of crying and can actually produce tears by recreating all the physical manifestations of the act of crying.
Only hacks use fake tears - which includes most actors in Hollywood who are horribly trained.
I always liked Peter O'Toole's marvelous line in My Favorite Year where he says "I'm not an actor! I'm a movie star!"Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 27.03.2007 @ 20:20
There is no "two man rule" when it comes to authorizing the use of a nuclear weapon. The decision lies solely and exclusively with the President.

mmmmmm...I think you may be on to something there, pal.
Did you note the smirk on Johnson's face after little Ricky threatened him? I thought at the time it might have been bad acting but it could be something more significant.
What if Johnson and Nadia are in cahoots? Johnson finds the module that clears Nadia which allows her to go back to work for Fayed.
Then again, it may all be an illusion and I'm talking through my hat.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 27.03.2007 @ 11:30
Thanks for the correction.
And the rest of the cabinet doesn't have to be in the room. Conference call would do just as well.
And the Daniels made it clear that he was calling the attorney general to get the ball rolling, not to simply take overComment Posted By Rick Moran On 27.03.2007 @ 10:40
I'm not sure what camp you're referring to. According to UNHCR there are about 1.2 million refugees in Syria.
Reading this article would seem to indicate that other reports I read about "camps" was either exaggerated or in error:
I should have known better than to believe anything in Raw Story.
That said, the point about internal refugees is still valid - especially if those figures regarding malnutrition are accurate.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 21.03.2007 @ 18:20
No where do I accuse anyone of being a traitor or anti American. I accuse people of "witlessly" giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
I actually prefer those who wittingly announce their intentions to support our enemies. At least they don't pretend that their protests are carried out in a vacuum, that insurgents from the Cong to the Sunnis aren't counting on the left wing in the United States to do what they cannot do - defeat the US military on the field of battle.
It is the only thing that gives them hope - hence, it aids them in their insurgency against our allies in the Iraqi government. Their entire strategy is based on causing the most horrific civilian casualties that are sure to be reported by a compliant media, thus undermining the will of the American people to see the job through to completion.
Readers of this site know that I have listed blunder after blunder made by the Administration in Iraq. I have made it clear that our military can only do so much to help, that it is clearly up to the Iraqi government to alter their politcs to include all factions, all sects in order to take the fire out of the insurgency - leaving the genuine terrorists from al-Qaeda to be dealt with.
But criticizing strategy and calling for a precipitous departure are two different things. If you are going to protest and call for an end to the war, at least have the honesty to acknowledge that you are doing exactly what the enemy who is shooting and killing Americans in the field wants.
This is so self-evident that I can't for the life of me figure out why it is denied so strenuously.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 20.03.2007 @ 06:39
Your comment was deleted because:
1. Your use of obscenity.
2. You're a goddman SOCK PUPPET!
No guts to use your real name or leave a real email address? How pathetic. But I guess this allows you to use my name as well as Bibbleman and god knows how many others to hide your shame and control your fear that you know deep down, you're just not as smart as most people.
I pity you. All of those comments knowing full well that I would never publish them. If you take a step back and examine that behavior, don't you find it just a bit pathetic? If you were really honest with yourself, you would see that and simply go away.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.03.2007 @ 11:04
Actually, to be COMPLETELY COMPLETIST, I think - not sure and could be wrong - but the adage may have been used by The Bard in "Julius Ceasar."Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 13.03.2007 @ 10:04
Thanks for your comment.
I have thought long and hard about Mr. Gingrich - clearly the leading conservative public intellectual in America and a dynamic presence on the political stage.
I frankly find his ethics wanting and some of his positions troubling. But as I said in the piece I wrote in 2005, I will gladly stop whatever I'm doing to listen to what he has to say and buy any book he writes. There is no one in America today who presents such compelling arguments for the conservative cause.
I'd be glad to be part of any mailing list you might have that updates Mr. Gingrich's activities.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 9.03.2007 @ 16:10
Um...1998 - perjury bad.
2007 - "What the verdict proves is that you should never lie to the FBI or the grand jury."
Duh.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 6.03.2007 @ 13:41
