I am a socialist liberal hack liar

From a reader at Bell South:

Shame on you Roger Ebert. You made a false review of "Atlas Shrugged based on his desire to bury the subject matter of this movie. Sir, I do not know how you can live with yourself. You are not a professional but a hack who lies to uphold your own socialist liberal beliefs. I suspect this isn't the first time. Seen any "great" global warming movies lately?

When you and your socialist mainstream media cohorts have totally wrecked this country by supporting the looting of the products of achievers to redistribute to nonachievers will you realize what you have done? Or will you delude yourself to believe it wasn't your fault. I am here to remind you that is is your fault. You my sir are a miserable little moocher. I will not stand by and watch all my years of education (8 years post college) and hardwork be stolen to redistribute to my lazy neighbor.

I am soon moving to Singapore and closing my small business. My office manager who happens to be an Obama supporter will soon have a 5 year old son without a father to support and be living off the government tit. Sir, you have contributed to this. You can have the blame as I will not be held hostage by the looters and moochers and those that support them. Atlas is shrugging!

By the way you worthless hack the theater here in Atlanta was 80 percent full on 4th day of viewing and ended with standing ovation after the movie. How often does that happen to a "1 star" rated Ebert movie?
