A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

What kind of moron thinks stolen "art" like these can be resold ?

Despite Hollywood's LIE, clandestine Art Collectors do not exist.

I now that many pairs of these red shoes were custom made for Judy Garland in 1939.

I saw one of the pairs in the Smithsonian institute.  They were the most GORGEOUS shoes I have ever seen.  neither the movie nor photographs do them justice.

That was in 1976? I thought people were supposed to be tougher back then?

If memory serves me correctly, the complaints came from the religious right, a burgeoning constituency the GOP badly wanted to capture.
Yeah, that worked out really great. :rolleyes:
The gop'E used them just like the rest of us, did nothing for religious freedom, even caved later on when the left began attacking Christianity over the following 3 decades which brings us to today, where the left now supports Satanism and Muscum..

I remember being horrified by Margaret Hamilton being chosen as the TV commercial spokesperson for a coffee company.  Folgers, maybe?

There was no mistaking that voice, it was too unique, even when she was talking calmly instead of shrilly abusing a little girl and her doggie. 

I wonder if sales of that coffee went up or down? LOL
