Hi Sebastian Lawhorne,

Ah, yes, I forgot that scene. Oddly.  One would think
that would have stuck.  I stand corrected.

Thanks for responding.

All the best.

@D. R. Zing:

The documentary Enron: The Smartest Guys in the
Room
is rated R.  Why?  Well, because it uses the
word fuck several times. Nevermind this is the kind
of movie you want a sixteen-year-old to see.

The movie also features an extended scene in a strip club, with nude women. I don’t think it was the language necessarily.

You have to keep in mind the MPAA is all about
censorship.  An example I recall from a few years
back is this:

The documentary Enron: The Smartest Guys in the
Room
is rated R.  Why?  Well, because it uses the
word fuck several times. Nevermind this is the kind
of movie you want a sixteen-year-old to see.

Around that same time, the movie When a Stranger
Calls
was released.  It is rated PG-13 “for
intense terror, violence and some language.”

The MPAA message is clear and simple:  Movies about
the truth are to be censored. Movie about violence
and bullshit are suitable for teenagers. 

“Welcome, my son, welcome to the machine.”

“If we did it in Libya, we should do it in Syria.”

John McCain; this is a man who dropped napalm on women and children in Vietnam; was shot down, landed in a river, wounded and drowning and had his sorry ass saved by the very people he was trying to kill.

This Hellspawn killing machine never met a war he could not embrace.

As far as Libya being the template going forward to re-colonize lost territory of “old empires”; over confidence may lead to another “un-Kosher” event such as the “bay of pigs!” 

Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez watch your backs.
