Whalberg just jumped up ten points in my book (he was already up there for his USO work).

I don't know his politics but I do appreciate his support for our troops.

Cruise makes $10-20 million a movie, plus royalties and profits. Our soldiers do so much more than Cruise making an action movie, while not making enough money to support their families.  They lose body parts, some are blinded, others are deaf, among the many injuries they suffer. Cruise should be ashamed of himself. He had the time to visit his daughter, but chose otherwise. There's no excuse, and he knows it.

I like the sentiment. The foul mouth delivery is a little lacking.

The 'foul mouth delivery' is the northeast equivalent  of an exclamation point. As a lifelong New Yorker, I found the delivery a little refreshing, not a little lacking. Hell, in New york, we'd have phrased that a LOT f*cking bluer. Just sayin'.  :smokin:

I'm not big on the 'f' word, either. However, sometimes I get so mad at Obummer and his groupies, that the word just falls out! Of course, I live alone, and I don't care what the cats think!

I grew up in Montana.  F*** was a part of our general discourse.  Former Sen. Conrad Burns, who is a friend of my family, should have patented it!

They can nail me on the accent alone. But, whern I have to, if I want to, I can 'talk' WASP with the best of them. I did when I was a prosecutor. Now [retired], not so much. F*ck 'em.  :whistle:

That is an ability I envy. Being able to shift accents. Vocab is easy, accent is hard.

That particular word has phenomenal use.  It, or derivations of it, can be a noun or verb.  It can be adjective or adverb.  It is also as common as the word "the" in the military so it seems appropriate to the situation. :silly:

Is it true that the F-word came from police usage of File Under Carnal Knowledge?  I heard that somewhere.

This is actually a word I say often - it just feels so good to let go with it!  Nothing else works as well - "fudge!" just doesn't quite cut it.  My mother was a cusser, I learned to cuss at her knee and she learned to cuss at her daddy's knee.   

In this usage, I think Mark Wahlberg has used precisely the right word!

Like all good cuss words, it is Saxon. Fokken. Means to strike - hence where we get the phrase "I'd hit it."

Go ahead!  Make sure the British get credit for this useful word. :silly:

You should try going through life with a hard hillbilly-from-the-coal-fields-of-Kentucky accent (which I am completely proud to exhibit).  Luckily, most of the people around me talk the same way - but yeah - in certain situations you hide it the best you can.

There are a whole bunch of democrat politicians who hide the fact they are white when they go to black churches to give a speech. :0001:
