She shouldn't have talked trash about my guy Trump. No sympathy here, I prefer a reality without her in it.





.......ugh can we not? Where do you newbies with this sort of nasty diatribe keep coming from?


My apologies, I'll leave you to flatter someone you idolize because they were in a movie. That makes more sense than I could.


.....I dont Idolize anyone.......

What I do is recognize peoples accomplishments and Icons from a Time past, a time of fond memories for a lot of us......and when they part this earth it is indeed sad......

Should probably calm down that vitriol


So Carrie was more accomplished than the thousands of others who died today that you didn't make a thread about?

Or, you accept and participate in our society's idol worship of meaningless actors and other celebrities, and I should too?


1st , no one made you read or reply to this thread, so your participation there in, is of your own volition...dont project on to me or the OP

2. Sure lots of people die every day, and other peoples accomplishments arent any less deserving.....however

That still has no bearing on people recognizing those who we remember growing up, and watching, listening too etc...

Especially those who were part of something , that for a lot of us , INSPIRED us, many many people were inspired by that film to take jobs that changed the world, changed science, changed our perception of things.....

I dont understand the vitriol and animosity that comes from people like you honestly......

Dont like the thread? Dont like whats being said in honor of someone who was a childhood legend for a lot of people? Dont look at it.....



Well I didn't like Carrie and I'm had she's dead. It's likely her affront towards me is more deserving of my contempt than that of some foes of our military that we celebrate in death. So really you don't want to deny ignorance but to carry on illogical traditions and feel good inside rather than confront your delusions.

There are innumerable Right/Republican posters on here who are enormous fans of her & the franchise. I'll let THEM eat you alive, n00b. Gotta get shredded by your own before you learn where politics ain't welcome, I guess.

You're glad she's dead?

What the hell did she do to you?

Why is anyone responding to the GCoot? Some people are just the way they are and you can't discuss things with them so just walk away.

I personally didnt know Carrie Fisher, I have no personal feeling of sadness that she passed. It's of no more significance to me then if someone else I didnt know died. I do however know that lots of people liked watching her portrayal of a character in the Star Wars films and so her fans along with her family are sad because of it so like I said earlier , I hope they find some peace from it soon.

Im not sure why people think this year is any different then any other year though with deaths..10 years ago , and every subsequent Dec 27, celebrities and unknown people died. 10 years from now celebrities and unknown people will die on this day. It's no different then any other day since the dawn of time...someone , some place died.

You should of quit when you had the out. I hope that shovel has a built in ladder!


2016 has been full of suck for a lot of people including myself. I've lost some very dear and close people this year and your insensitivity is something I find offensive on a personal level.

May you live in interesting times

She talked trash about my President and his platforms, that I support and believe will make my country family and friends tangibly safer wealthier and happier.

I see what you're trying to do. But it's not sheep or wolves in the political sense, but the metaphorical sense. The act being engaged in is one of a malicious predatory nature. I stand by my original symbology. Remember what happens to wolves sniffed out by the dogs guarding the sheep, especially when the shepherd takes note.

It was really more about a wannabe tough-guy as opposed to an actual tough-guy.

Y'know, like the difference between Jar-Jar and Han.
