Re: “Noah: Cloudy With a Chance of Mercy

The "Book of Jubilees" and "Enoch" were rejected from the Biblical canon and NEITHER one of them mentioned the flood. In other words, they are FICTIONAL...So if the supposed basis is based on these, it's ridiculous. Let's get factual.

Re: “Cable One Removes Viacom Channels in Contract Standoff

Cable One has no problem collecting their full service fee, which is much higher than other TV viewing services, then they want to provide less value to their customers for the same price. These new channels are "CRAP" and they know it. I can no longer view any of the shows I normally watch, so several of my relatives and friends in the neighborhood are searching for a better service. We are through with substandard service after years of being customers with Cable One. Look for a cancellation of service in the College Park area of Gulfport, MS. What's next? You suck for not getting your customer's feedback and just turning off the channels we paid for in the middle of the month. Turner, Viacom and whose next?

Re: “Cable One Removes Viacom Channels in Contract Standoff

Kudos to Cable One for fighting this battle. It is outrageous for the network to be loosing viewership and demand such price increases, which would be passed on the customer anyway. Companies like Viacom and Turner are opposing federal legislation to require a-la-carte programming options and pricing, because they want us to pay for hundreds of channels of crap, just so we can watch the 12 out of 300 channels that are actually good.

Re: “Cable One, Viacom Feud Could Blackout Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, TV Land

Boise has the lowest cable penetration of any market in the entire country, so says Nielsen. Less than 23% of homes have cable. Contrast that with areas like NYC where more than 90% of homes have cable.

Re: “The 2014 Sun Valley Film Festival: 'And... Action'

Thank God I now live in Utah where the Sundance film festival happens in Park City. I want to remind many wasn't it the Knytes-of-Anarchy our club that suggested a Sun Valley Film Festival back in 2006-7? Hope we get credit for this one.

Re: “Film Documents Anita Hill's Real-Life Drama

As a former member of the Idaho Commission on Women’s Programs, I strongly support the efforts of the Friends of the United Nations Population Fund ("UNFPA") in its world wide efforts to foster the individual independence and educational opportunities of women and to improve their access to family planning services. However, for film-maker Goldwyn to exclaim "surprise" at having her festival request for funding from the Sun Valley City Council turned down for being a partisan political event is disingenuous. Worse still, serves only to damage the mission of UNFPA, which faces real and relevant political obstacles as it is, without the infusion of such needless political controversy. It would seem that Goldwyn, a self described "reformed sitcom writer" and ex-wife of Samuel Goldwyn, Jr., is using this festival to burnish her own career rather than thoughtfully enhancing the purposes of UNFPA of which she is an emeritus member.

Anita Hill, the victim, should be on the Supreme Court, not Clarence Thomas, the perpetrator. Go Figure.

Re: “Idaho Legislature Aims to Lure More Movie Production

Honestly, does the legislature have time to consider this with all the time tidying up the state? Why we had to be sure concealed weapons holders packed pistols on Idaho campuses, be sure Holsteins, Jersey and Gurnsey cows were being beaten in private, and fund the anti-gay marriage law fund.

Let's give these guys and homophobe Butch Otter a break. They're exhausted.

All truths about the legislature and wealthy rancher Butch Otter aside, supporting the Idaho film industry could only help Idaho. It is a great, clean industry. Everybody loves movies. Be sure to follow the history of Idaho Cinema and Nell Shipman with movie clips at Youtube. Astonishing.

Occasionally, I see a scene in a movie shot in Idaho. But, it seems many other states have just gotten in line first with their aggressive film board promotion.

Promotion of Idaho films is critical and could include major production as well as the independent film documentary. Idaho Public TV is a great resource for much of my own information about Idaho, and could be expanded. Student programs in public schools and universities could be fully expanded with funding.

Idaho, home of the Sun Valley Serenade!

PS: by the way, our legislators are not as exhausted as I portrayed. They sometimes use canned legislation provided by the ultra right legislation mill organization, ALEC.

PSPS: I've heard there is an underground railroad now for Gurnsey cows seeking to get out of Idaho, but I don't know it that is true.

PSPSPS: watch a movie for life change

I always though he was a weird man. When he went through a divorce and had a relationship with his adopted daughter was that last time I even cared about watching any of his movies. He is a sick sick man.

Re: “'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson Critical of Gays in 2010 Speech

Freedom of speech guarantees the government cannot jail you for what you say. It does not guarantee freedom from consequences. I would have thought that constitutional experts such as Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz would all know that.

This has nothing to do with FREE speech, it's all about HATE speech.

Re: “'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson Critical of Gays in 2010 Speech

I suppose we can put ol’ Phil up on a cross now and stick a spear in him since he’s the new martyr for the Christian Right. Last year, it was the Chick-Fil-A Chicken being branded as the new saint of Christianity for standing up for all that is Holy Matrimony in the eyes of the Church. These folks want to be on the wrong side of history with their public criticism of homosexuality but cry fowl (pardon the pun) when their own bigotry is examined in a public light. Phil’s licking his fingers at…

Re: “Pamela Anderson Offers $1M to End Seal Hunt; Someone Offers Anderson $1M to Stop Acting

Killing a seal is the same thing as killing any other wild animal. I don't understand how come people are still listening to activists like Anderson. Simply ridiculous how humans don't use there common sense!
Plus, I haven't herd about activist giving money to stop killing baby veals and lambs... probably because they would look dumb! and it wouldn't make them raise millions! BTW no one kills white baby seals since decades!!!!
