I wonder what the FBI thought of the bible when they realized that the ONLY people Jesus smacked around ever was a bunch of greedy bankers...?

LarryDan43: George Bailey made just $45 a week and yet he took a $2000 honeymoon. There's some liberal entitlement taking right there.

They thought you would understand the $2000 was collective wedding gift money. Maybe it had to be spelled out for you. Also, he didn't take the honeymoon, but instead gave the money to the people to save the buildings and loans.

I think bankers are discrediting bankers. Clearly they are commie terrorist scum.

I always considered the bankers to be the real heroes in that movie.

StopLurkListen: Heh, my wife remarked to me how socialist "A Christmas Carol" seemed.

I think I'll write a reverse-Christmas Carol for Breitbart. A commie pinko kale-eating libtard from Berkeley learns the value of SUVs, whisky and 'screw you, I've got mine" and moves to a McMansion in a gated suburb.

I always thought the "reformed" Scrooge would fit in well with today's conservative businessmen. He sees that what he was doing would leave him not very well-liked, and set about to sway public opinion (still a selfish thing to do). And instead of quietly donating to charities and helping out the local infrastructure, he buys presents and food, and makes sure everyone knows that Ebenezer Scrooge is the one being so charitable. I find it akin to companies who donate to a cause, then spend 10x as much money advertising that they gave to said cause.

Discredit them? They need to be taken out and beaten severely. Since it's Christmas, no blows to the head and no kicking the groin.

/You can still knee to the groin
/Hey, everybody, let's go kick the hell out of old man Gower!!!
/the video will play after the warning about ad blockers...just wait 20 secs or so

I'm not sure its communist, but I'd rate its entertainment value somewhere around white washing a fence.

Nowif you wanna watch a good Jimmy Stewart movie might I recommend the Man who shot Liberty Vallance

Yes and the FBI's past use of GPS to track US citizens without a warrant, their reading of emails and monitoring of posts on social networks is a code for Fascism.
