Typical Hollyweird psycho. The vacuum these loser's losers live in is astounding. Hopefully we are seeing the decline and eventual re-defining of Hollywood...perhaps 1 or two generations from now the golden years of Hollywood will return. As of right now, the depth of depravity of today's actors and actresses knows no bounds. Uncle Screwtape is his minions Wormwood [and Mugwort aka Ruthie Ginsberg] are hard at work.

If he's a comedian, he must not be very good, because I've never heard of him. He's not an attractive fellow either, yikes, maybe it's his lack of humor that makes him look miserable?

I will say Oswalt was perfectly cast as Constable Bob Sweeney in Justified: incompetent, power hungry, and just flat stupid.

He reaffirms what I think of Hollywood! Isn't he the husband of the author who researched the California serial killer arrested last year? I think she died and he went on to marry someone else? He must think he is relevant or something.

It is a shame that these Hollywood idiots have a platform to spew their nonsense and hate. Their opinion holds no more weight than anyone else’s even though they believe they are the enlightened ones. Usually, they are intolerant ignoramuses who can only parrot someone else’s thoughts. It is a cesspool of group think based on nothing more than preconceived ideas that have little to do with reality. Their so called compassion ends for anyone who differs with their opinion and they become vicious, bitter and petty virtue signaling fools.

He was married to a woman? When I looked at the photo I could have sworn that he was a homosexual. So, I looked him up and his wife apparently died of “complications from ingested medications”. IOW, a drug overdose. I guess that I would have done the same if married to that ugly lard-butt hateful arrogant piece of vermin excrement.

Hollywood's financials are down 27% since 2018 and how many premiers have been postponed due to coronavirus? It's gonna get worse as more events, concerts, festivals, and conventions are cancelled.

A creepy jerk. You hardly ever see Hollywood actors publicly call out other actors, but Timothy Oliphant the star of the Justified series, went out of his way on a talk show to talk about how difficult it was to work with this creep when he was a guest actor on an episode. He really detested the punk. Poetic justice is the fact that oswalt has to wake up as oswalt every single day.

Oswalt's bio says he's the son of a career Marine, named after Gen. George S. Patton. Maybe the "preacher's daughter syndrome". He lives on social media, throwing out mean-spirited sophistry, thriving on the endorphin rush of "Likes". It's all he's got, he has nothing else.

Here are just a handful of recent examples: They silenced the women Bill Clinton sexually assaulted but then embraced the #MeToo movement and declared that all victims must be heard; They acquitted Bill Clinton of impeachment over perjury but voted to impeach President Trump for the high crime of faithfully executing his office; They accused Attorney General William Barr of being Trump’s wingman but accepted Eric Holder’s self-designation

According to the Pentagon, the president has signed off on the use of lethal force against the Shia militia, who was allegedly behind the latest attack on Camp Taji.“I have spoken with the president,” stated Defense Secretary Mark Esper. “He’s given me the authority to do what we need to do, consistent with his guidance.”The move came in defiance of the House’s resolution to protect Iran, which passed on Wednesday. President Trump has declined to specify what the U.S. response would be.“We’ll see what the response is,” he said.

With some K-12 school districts and administrators across America panicking and attempting to get ahead of any ‘outbreak’ of the coronavirus, more districts are opting for students to stay home. I’d be willing to bet that most students thoroughly enjoy this. It’s kind of like having ‘snow days.’ However, what might be in store for these students could be far more important than a snow day, as it’s possible that the virus may herald a revolutionary shift in education. Throughout the years, American homeschooling and online K-12 education has become far more popular and realistic than ‘brick and mortar’ public schools want to admit.
