Stealth Right Wing Religious Political Agenda FAIL!
6 July 2014 | by stevepat99See all my reviews

On top of that... plot holes you can drive trucks through. Here is 'thought provoking'... one 10-star reviewer's words of wisdom are: all people have value and make a difference. I am guessing that reviewer's 'list' includes such as Mother Theresa, George Bush (W), the Koch brothers and Shirley Temple. To be 'Fair and Balanced' one should add to that list such as Hitler, Ted Bundy, Putin and Stalin. Most of these nice fellows 'had value and made a difference' to their followers.

And how many fellow Americans feel they have little or no value and make little or no difference since they can not support and feed their families on minimum wage and because so many fellow citizens wish to strip them of the first ever access to medical care they have ever enjoyed in their adult lives.

If you are up for a stealth, right wing, religious/political agenda film this one's for YOU!
