Morals from Hollywood
i love it when these Hollywood stars take trips to third world countries.
it's amazing that the world has any problems at all, with all these Hollywood star activists flying around the world, drawing attention to everything.
Hollywood stars are superior to the rest of the world because they have a skill that no one can live without, acting on film playing pretend.
with all thier highly overpaid millions, it must be very hard for them to imagine why the rest of the world is so F-ed up.
don't you know? the big enemy of this whole story is the working class American, we're responsible for everything that has happened in the world.
so once in a lifetime the Hollywood star, who is much more informed and superior to us, hops on a plane to take a trip to Africa for a week, with a month's worth of bottled water and a personal chef.
they immidiatley understand what it is like to live in a third world country because that 12 hour flight, first class, was a killer,
...getting to the 5 star hotel wasn't fun either.
next day, get up in the morning, meet the armed escorts, visit some towns, ...special ones they got picked out for you.
hug some kids, give them bottled water, a Hershey bar, and a Sponge Bob Squarepants puppet.
(kid is wondering what the hell it is)
...visit the local zoo
(don't forget to ask the wise wizards of the third world, what they think of America)
then hop back on the plane, and head back to America
...and make sure the whole thing is on film, because us Americans need to be AWARE of all the problems in Starvo-nisia.
i would like to thank Hollywood stars of making me AWARE of these problems.
...actually i was AWARE,since my mother told me to eat my food because they are starving in China.
...but that flight you took out there, really changed the world.
so they give a small portion of their huge income , the money they earned from doing nothing, to a fund to help the people of Starvo-nisia, and advise the rest of America to do the same.
...except the only problem is,most of America now pays most of what they earn to rent, doesn't have acouple million laying around
Hollywood stars go back to their big 10 bedroom home, a house so big that they have to buy a security system because there could be someone living in the other end of the house and they wouldn't realize it,
and they flush 30 grand per month down the toilet, in rent, just for a status symbol.
they have the Ferrari, the SUV, and ....because they are responsibly superior....the electric car for around town.
...which doesn't make one piss of difference because the electricity comes from "fossil" fuel.
so the bottom line is...
these Hollywood stars fly around, to make us "aware" of problems in the world.
they dump money into some fund,
Americans dump money into the same fund,
the people are still starving next year,
everyone gave their money to some elaborate scheme,
the star felt better about themself,
the rich star is the biggest part of the problem because they told everyone to donate to a scam that doesn't work,
...and there is no progress because the charity was hijacked.
Yes, but Wolf they want YOU to take part in their little emotional activity. You see, they finally get a hold of human suffering, and it trumps all the phony baloney they conjure up in acting school and in the guilds to bring on the waterworks for shooting the next scene,
and Bog blast you if you don't glom onto their pathos.
After all aren't you the ones who came to see the latest cruddy little movie? Ya know, the one where whoever is the latest on the A list spend 1.5 to 2.5 hours creating dramatic scenes to surround the so-called all-important scenes wherein they do each other.
But can you get your cooter around these..or be ye of the gentlemanly type--into this picture...of these poor starving bedraggled and forgotten beings here in ...what did you call it Starvania? Man, that goes a long way in tamping down the guilt those washed-up thespians must feel. I mean, to make like news out of it, as if all our parents didn't tell us about the starving masses and all...
It's great to be alive and pumping oxygen!
The hollywood types also FORGET WHERE THEIR MONEY CAME FROM...
It came from the ignorant gullable type common folk that have been misslead, in the first place, into watching them pretend to be something that they are not.
They cannot separate pretend from reality and therefore NEED therapists...
Those who dance, appear insane to those who do not hear the music.
Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.
The Hollywood industry has turned into a golden calf and too many people in our society worship this false god. The smartest thing anyone (especially parents) can do is turn off the idiot box and tune out the media.
Redemption,.........they feel guilty so they are redeeming themselves,......and getting publicity at the same time,....
also the whole world thinks they are good Samaritans .............
and they probably take it as a tax write off ................

Some here are incredibly myopic.
Why weren't you complaining when Heston lent his name and fame to the NRA?
How about Paul Newman's products?
Is it because you agree with them and the only time your criticism applies is when the cause is perceived as liberal?
I see nothing wrong if someone famous believes in something and thinks their name would help sell it. Not all causes are bad.
I do think Penn going to meet with world leaders is a bit over the top.
Tracers work both ways.
Apparently I'm not as smart as the publicity hounds who spend untold amounts of money to travel to some third world country so they can adopt a child or two (and just coincidentally be seen carrying the kids through the airport). I'm so dumb that I believe they could take that same money and build an orphanage or medical clinic or something else that would serve hundreds of children for years to come.
It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?

I'm sure there are many things these large Movie Stars are using their money and fame for that are good just as there are many things they're doing that make them total hypocrites.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
