Jane Fonda moving to L.A.

jane_fonda_300Just after hosting her “World Fitness Day” event downtown over the weekend, Jane Fonda says she’s leaving Atlanta for Los Angeles.

(Here’s a photo gallery chronicling her time in Atlanta).

“This is a hard blog to write,” she posted. “I have been in Atlanta for 19 years. It has been my home and I have been very happy here. I came here with Ted Turner and when we separated, I stayed. It’s been 10 years since then. I built myself a loft that I truly thought would be my home till I died. I love it so. My daughter, my soon-to-be son-in-law and my two grandchildren live here. My two non-profits are here: The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and The Jane Fonda Center at the Emory School of Medicine where the focus is on adolescent reproductive health and sexuality. So you see, my decision to move to Los Angeles has not been easy.”

She says she went out to L.A. for knee replacement last year and decided she “still wanted to work in film.”

She says she has some movie projects coming up and plans frequent visits to her “adopted city.”

And in case you’d like to bunk at Chez Fonda, she says she’ll soon be posting info about renting or buying her loft.

I know her intentions are noble, but WTH ? How is her foundation going to stop teens from being human ? You can’t exactly pass out contraceptives here in the Bible belt , she would have done more good donating her time/money to a soup kitchen.

Some of the people that post to these stories just confirms why I feel the way I do…some people are just EXTREMELY ignorant…give an idiot a computer and internet access…they are still stupid…wonders what her critics above me have done to make the state and city better???

She is a great lady and has contributed significantly to making our state a better place to live. We will miss her, but wish her well in L.A.

Hope you visit often Jane. Enjoyed having you here and think you will miss us. We watched you become one of us, read of your conversion to Christianity, and thank you for charity. Good luck with your life.

Ms. Fonda you have contributed so much to Georgia during your 19 years. Your presence here will be missed but I wish you nothing but more success in L.A. And remember, your haters are your motivators.

Georgia will always be known for it racist, redneck, and white supremacist attitudes. You all are a bunch of ignorant hicks. Stay in your trailer parks with you limited thinking while the rest of the world prospers.

There are people here in Atlanta that think the world of you Jane. You call it as you see it and you’re not afraid to speak your mind. Your dedicated and tireless work to prevent unwanted teenage pregnancies is an intelligent and enlightened long term plan for making the world a substantially better place. If those are grounds to be hated then I’ll jump in the boat with you anyday.

Tawny, So if you disagree with someone’s stance you put them down and call them names? Next time you call someone “ignorant hicks” please learn to spell or use better grammar.

You should go with her. LA could use you two. I am sure of it. Maybe there are some trees to hug or condums you can hand out.

What am I missing? It seems like people are so miserable that they just can’t help but spread the negativity on pages like this. Keep it to yourselves as who needs or wants to hear all of the useless whining and complaining all of the time?!?! Like they say, misery loves company, but it has gotten old BIG TIME.

I must say that I will not miss you Jane. My uncle was a Veitnam Veteran, who fought thru two tours in that country. What you did will never be forgiven in my eye’s or mind. You should have been tried for treason and left to rot in a tiger cage. Shame on you and I am glad you will be some were other then the great state of Georgia. We don’t need Un American people like you here.

When is she leaving? does she need any help? I know of 25 vets from Viet Nam who own tractor trailer rigs that will be glad to move her as far west as they can probably at no cost. She is a turn coat and she needs to be out in California with the rest of the idiots.

Why don’t you “Hanoi Jane” guys give it a rest. She did a stupid and unthinking thing FORTY YEARS AGO. I think she’s more than made up for it since then. Some of you are Christians who believe in forgiveness for politicians who have committed far worse things she did, but somehow she’s not worthy of your dispensation. I can steal from the American people and lie through my teeth to them and I get forgiven. She does a stupid thing and doesn’t try to lie about it, and you make her wear it around her neck for forty-plus years. Grow up!

Many people seem to have forgotten or don’t know what she did. She was photographed sitting in a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. That is roughly the equivalent of being photographed helping set up a roadside bomb in Iraq or Afghanistan today. She definitely ‘aided the enemy’. She should have been prosecuted as a traitor in the 60s and at the very least not allowed to return to the US.

She has since said she regretted her actions and tried to be a ‘good citizen’, but that doesn’t change what she did. Protesting war is one thing. Lots of people protested the war. Promoting the other side is quite another.

Bye Jane, you can continue to do “good” but morally you have a long ways to go before we forget the comfort you gave the enemey in our time of need.
Like Ed Kenndy who died a murderer, forgiveness will be long in coming.

OMG This will have catastrophic economic effects on the plastic surgery business in Atlanta. How will all those fat sucking, lip stuffing, fake boob implanters survive without US troop hater Hanoi Jane and her Ted Turner Millions? Atlanta may need a bail out from barack O’slick.

She assisted in the murdering of ONE million Cambodians. I do know how many Americans died because of her patronage to communism.

“Extremely ignorant?” Well golly gosh gee whiz, by shucks, maybe I am. BUT I STILL DIDN’T SIT ON THE ENEMY’S ARTILLERY AND GIVE AID AND COMFORT TO HIM! I DIDN’T TAKE THE NAMES AND NUMBERS OF PRISONERS THAT WERE PRESSED INTO MY HANDS AND TURN THEM OVER TO THE CAPTORS, THE SLIME THAT WERE TORTURING OUR SOLDIERS!

Hope you rot in LA, Jane, with your Leftest Loony friends.

i’m with Mr. Angry. Let it go. Unforgiveness is a sin, so you so-called Christians are leading yourselves down the path of permanent destruction. Unforgivness ranks right up there with adultery, lying, stealing etc…In God’s eyes sin is sin. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. With that being said, there should be no comments on this story whatsoever, including this one. Good Luck Ms. Fonda, I wish you much success. Your teen pregnancy work has been phenomenal

Nothing against her but, I thought she left a long time ago. I don’t ever see her around town. These high falootin’ people have many homes around the world… she probably wasn’t here that much anyway.

So she is leaving Atlanta for Norhern Mexico…wow. Hey i grew up out there (long beach), and unless you make movie star money its not a place for regular folk. So I guee since she has movie star money, she wants to move back. Either that or she is buying the bs you see about Caliphony in those commercials with Arnold and his wife skeletor!

“Yall” are filled with hate that continues to manifest in the south. Please note: this may be the reason the south continues to fall behind in MANY areas (education, income, business, etc). Stay in your trailer parkers, on government aid (welfare, unemployment) and continue to refuse to move beyond the past to make way for the future.
