It's A Wonderful Life is on TV

Old Man Potter, I swear, acts like a modern day Right Wing Republicanů

He sounds like those rich Romney boosters who had it in for the President. A man who owns 99% of everything, yet grouses over the fact that he can't get his money grubbing hands on that last measly one per cent.

Damn, it must suck to be that miserable.

9. I have never liked this movie.

Not a favorite.
I am a a Grinch fan and I always watch 'A Christmas Memory' with Geraldine Page. Truman Capote was very good writing Southern stories.

2. Did you ever notice...

Before the mistake became president, It's A Wonderful Life would be on television several times in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Several different channels would run it a few times; and, if you wanted, you could watch it a few times before Christmas.

Now, if you even hear that it's going to air, you better watch it that time; because, if you don't, you won't get to see it at all. And they show it on a Saturday night, when fewer people are watching at all.

Makes me think there is some message in there, that they don't want anybody to see. And I haven't seen my favorite, The Bells of St. Mary's, in about five years.

Great description of Mr. Potter, by the way.

5. So, an evil corporate conspiracy is hiding the message by...showing the movie?

How utterly diabolical!

Or perhaps they're putting on with a frequency commensurate with the demand for the movie.

3. Love this movie

Just sitting here crying at the end of the story. I think it's more meaningful now than in the past. Too many would be Potters in our country today.
