I used to give my dad a hard time when I was a kid because he disliked so many show business people because of their wild private lives. In particular, he had no use for Frank Sinatra because Frank was such a carouser and had married so many women.
It was a different world then and as a naïve kid, I could enjoy plenty of entertainers regardless of what they did on their own time. It never bothered me a bit that Frank was a popular guy with the ladies and had been married several times. I was at an age where I thought it was really “cool” that he had a wife as gorgeous as Ava Gardner but could still have other babes on the side. What a guy!
Today, I have morphed into my dad when it comes to Hollywood phonies. There are plenty of them and although I don’t care about their home life and marital problems, I do dislike the phony political philosophy of many of them.
I’m talking about the typical Hollywood limousine liberal: Obama loving types who love to feel good about themselves by forking over large amounts of money to a guy they think is a messiah out to save us with his liberal mindset. Never mind that the guy has never held a real job and has been a deer in the headlights for over three years.
All of this is happening while the national debt has climbed to $15 trillion, unemployment is back up to 8.2%, and we have record numbers of food stamp recipients and relentless assaults on religious freedom while illegal aliens can now get excused and fight with the 20 million Americans who are out of work for the scarce jobs that may be available.
Obama is now back on the campaign trail making empty promises and using divisive, class-warfare, language to push for re-election. Plus, to fund his $1 billion campaign, he is once again going to his Hollywood buddies.
Relax, George, and write that check
So, you might say: “Well, they believe in Obama because he wants to have green power sources, eliminate racism (ha-ha), produce green energy through wind and sun power, and gear everyone to a liberal lifestyle where the rich get soaked to support a myriad of ridiculous government programs and regulations.
It’s very noble to them that Obama despises the entrepreneurs who are the REAL job creators saying they need to pay higher taxes. As Orit Sklar of “The Daily Caller” has written, “For someone who speaks about the American dream, Obama certainly knows how to deride people who have achieved it and set up roadblocks in front of those seeking it.”
As the prez makes his rounds of $50,000 per plate fundraisers with stars like George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker, how do some of the other rich Obama lovers go about paying THEIR “fair share?” Huge Obama supporter Bruce Springsteen, who despises the rich, is pretty rich himself and has even found a loophole where he can avoid property taxes on a couple hundred acres of his estate in New Jersey by claiming he is a farmer. This has saved him thousands of tax dollars that would go to needy causes in New Jersey.
Then, there is another of Obama’s pals, Bon Jovi. Obama even gives this guy free plane rides on Air Force One. He has found that raising a few bees can save him a ton on taxes. Taxes that he believes other should pay but not him.
Meanwhile, stars like Sting, Julia Roberts, and Leonardo DiCaprio are flying private jets around the world, expanding their carbon footprints faster than they can buy carbon offsets as they call for anti-global warming policies to stifle business and economic growth. Harrison Ford owns several airplanes and has bragged about how he can hop in one and fly up the coast for a hamburger. Hypocrites? I think so.
They can do as they please but “paying their fair share,” as Obama constantly cries the rich are not doing, is not anything that interests them or him. They just don’t care, folks. Below their glossy exteriors, they are phony to the bone.
Remember that in November.
