I don't know what made me think to look this up, but damn, that's a lot of money going to Satan's minions.

Great, now I can't go to his movies anymore. Everytime I hear about a actor/actress doing something stupid in an extreme liberal way, I have to boycott thier movies. Now Spielburg as well.

I'd feel like an idiot if I spent that much money and lost.

Pretty soon your only entertainment is going to be Planet of the Apes, The Omega Man and Ted Nuggent.

I feel kinda stupid for never thinking of that.

That $4,000 accomplished a helluva lot more than his $799,373.

If I were him, I would ask John Kerry for a refund

Interesting site, you wouldn't believe who has contributed to dems and who has to republicans.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are democrats

I seem to recall that one of the writers or producers was trying to parallel the martians to U.S. Forces in the sandbox, I can't seem to find the link though.

Most of the big dollor ($100,000+) donations go to the Democrats. The Republicans beat them in the $1000-2000 range.

Would you give a man rope to hang you with? Why, then, give money to people that hate you?

Bill Gates is awesome his total donations are $159,850.

Look guys, there's nothing wrong with seeing his movies.

It's only wrong to BUY a ticket.

Download them off Bittorrent.

Then, you've screwed a lefty, and their checkbook.



You're welcome.

Here's a shock... Toby Keith, who isn't too political, and supports the troops, but not the war, has only one actual contribution - to George Bush in 2004.

Right after the election, I went to the site that tracked political donations. A very liberal trial lawyer that I was once involved with (nightmare) donated $20,000 to Kerry. Had a good laugh on that one.

I was surprised by the large amount of money, not by his political leaning.
