Not So Young But Angry Conservatives Unite

Getting sick of the progressively worse slant and obvious bias of the media? Got booted out of other sites for offending too many liberals? Make this your home. If you SPAM here, you're gone. Trolling? Gone. Insult other posters I agree with. Gone. Get the pic. Private sanctum, private rules. No Fairness Doctrine and PC wussiness tolerated here..... ECCLESIASTES 10:2- The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left.

Charlton Heston, 1924-2008, RIP sir....

RIP Mr. Heston. A true class act of an actor and a heck of an idividual.....

Charlton Heston (October 4, 1923 – April 5, 2008) was an American Academy Award-winning film actor.

Heston is known for playing heroic roles, such as Moses in The Ten Commandments, Colonel George Taylor in Planet of the Apes and Judah Ben-Hur in Ben-Hur. Early in his career, he was one of a handful of Hollywood actors to speak out against racism and was active in the civil rights movement. During the latter part of his movie career, he starred in films such as The Omega Man and Soylent Green, which have a strong environmental message. However, he later became known for conservative politics and was president of the National Rifle Association from 1998 to 2003.-courtesy of Wikipedia...

Oddly enough, he was never divorced and was married for over 64 years to the same wife, Lydia. A pro-life Christian, and opponent of the Vietnam War, he wasn't a party shill, he was an American, period. He was US Marine who served in WWII, and was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom a few years back. Also, he narrated many a prologue for a Biblical or epic movie later in life. And yes, he narrated the Bible on CD and cassette (if those still exist).

Prayers be to Mrs. Heston and the rest of the Heston family.

We'll miss you, sir. See you up there.
