Most Hollywood celebrities remember where they came from. If you look at most of their biographies, they either came from a poor background or struggled to get where they are. A lot of them return to the old neighborhood to try and influence other young people. the majority of your democrats are either middle class or were at one time.
There is an old saying " Never forget the bridge that carried you across".
They are Democrats and Liberals because they don't like to stick to Conservative values. They have these loose morals, they like and support the idea of abortion, they support and believe in same sex marriages. Some of them like to do three-somes, four-somes, or group sex. That's really going down to the level of the lower species of animals. They do illegal drugs and drink like a fish. These are the actions of people who have strayed from God.
They want to do things that please them even if they know that it's against God's teachings.
However, there are still a lot of Hollywood celebrities who have good moral values. Thank God, there are some more good people left.
You mentioned about these celebrities having tons of money. Well, money is not everything. Otherwise they will be the ones with glorious lives with no problems at all. Do you see a lot of them being so miserably depressed, ending in suicide? With all that kind of money, why are there a lot of failed marriages? why do they have children who turn to alcoholism and drug addiction?
The reason why these are happening is that God is excluded from their lives.
In reality they are probably no more liberal or conservative than any of us here on Yedda. The differences are we can't write million dollar donations and the media does not give a damn what you or I say.
Think about their lives and what they do.
Their job is makebelieve.
They (not all but the most liberal) have lost touch with humanity. They don't pay their bills, I mean they don't sit down and write the check. They have 'people' to do that for them.
They may know what things cost but the don't understand what things cost.
Now, that is ok. Anyone good at their job or craft should be rewarded. Speilberg is a marvelous film maker. You don't like his politics then don't see, rent or buy his movies....but you'll miss some great entertainment.
I loathe Streisand's politics but, her voice can run goos flesh the length of my arms.
There are probably as many conservatives as there are liberals in Hollywood. My problem is , why do celebrities feel that their positions in life rate their opinions anymore noteworthy than anyone on Yedda? You have some Hollywood rehab artist (Lindsay Lohan) feels that she should influence peoples votes! Why? Because she is such an upstanding citizen? At least Obama did have the good sense to say "Thanks but No Thanks" to her! I think most average Americans feel that they are "elitest" and they feel their opinions matter more than anyone elses!
They are surrounded by people that never criticize them, thus they believe they are gods. Then , they feel bad for everybody beneath them, because we never had it that easy. Plus they think we are stupid, and don't know any better. Guns, religion, family, anti-abortion equivocates to hillbilly ignorance to them. Plus, they can tell you about different wines, different classical music, and recite different biased statistics in a debate to prove their point (they will never argue the principle differences between capitalism and liberalism, thus they try to put it on a smaller level using their hand-picked stats).
"Purg", why wouldn't they think we're stupid?
Do we give them any evidence to the contrary?
No, we don't. We make blockbusters out of "Dumb & Dumber" type movies and a much too large a segment of our young males have the crooked hat, oversize shirt, too long shorts & untied shoes look going for them as they listen to 'gangsta' rap as they shuffle along in the mall listening to their iPods.
Look at the 'man in the street' interviews that Jay Lenno does with young people. Do these people realize how dumb and uninformed they are...do they care?
Given all this (and so much more, but my fingers would fall off from all the typing) HOW could Hollywood regard us as anything else but stupid, boobs (and I'm not talking about the set that Pam Anderson bought ).
Good point, sort of. You see, we both watch, for example, "Man on the Street". However we both know that the average American is not that stupid. How do we know? Because we live and socialize with average Americans. Hollywood libs see "Man on the Street" and because they live in their elite little worlds, they think that we are all idiots.
I don't agree.
We live about a mile from a large regional mall. I'll go there for lunch, maybe twice a week. The people I see (I LOVE to watch people!) and hear are not that much different from those MOTS interviews.
Look at the way 75% of our young men and teens dress and try to emulate the gangsta rappers. Look at the Britny wannabes.
I'll go to church fellowship nights and am amazed at most of the young people.
Look at the grades of our young people.
While the Dumb & Dumber type movies do overexaggerate I think there is far more basis in fact there than you may want to believe.
I was talking with my 16 year old grand daughter the other night. A drop dead beautiful 5'8" tall, long-legged blonde. We got talking politics and environment. Her mind has been filled with such drivel and outright lies....and we're paying for it!!!!
My point is that she is a smart girl (straight A student) but her reasoning ability was kaput!!! While talking I explained a few things to her & then went to the US Senate website & prooved what I was telling her...I literally saw the light bulb over her head go on. Then the flood gate of questions followed. Her dad was in parent's heaven! He later told me that was the best time tallking they'd ever had. She has been bugging him nightly with questions about the Bailout.
Besides being mine, she is not really that much different from others in her peer group....and that is what scares me.
