[quote=larc919;2129193]Some of the last people on earth whose opinions I value when it comes to politics are entertainers, especially the Hollywood-type crowd. Nobody who makes the kind of money they do for the amount of work they put out lives in the same world I do. I pay attention when they talk about subjects related to their craft, but that’s about it.
It can be a different matter when members of that pack occasionally break out and get actively involved in politics as a primary effort. But even then, they have to prove they know what they are talking about.[/quote]
That’s the point I was trying to make. There has been a lot of hype about this video and what Matt Damon thinks and all that. I think its a joke. Actors get paid way to much. And I don’t see them doing anything that really helps us as a society. Sure its entertainment, but you can do other things for that.
I think its pretty sad how high a pedestal we put celebrities on as a society. They are no more important than us so why she would we make a big fuss when they say something or do something. Its pretty ridiculous, really.
