If they want a strike, it's OK with me. Let's get them all in one spot and call in an air strike.

Yeah, just like when the Repubs threatened the same thing when Obama won. Oh, wait I just ruined your point. Sorry

While this will never happen, it is a fairly significant threat. The motion picture industry in the US is responsible for bringing in billions of dollars a year. How will it make Trump look if that money starts going to India or China?
Bollywood is looking better anyway with adorable guys like rhitik Rosgan !

Olaru12, remember, you spend your time entertaining these same people. Careful there friend.

Keep up the fun at any rate.

As to my kind of witty response to the hoax, at least you know how I feel about entertainment these days. Great production value which diminishes the necessity for really good scripting and talent.

Although, I have to admit, Pompeii is another gem. Aside from the fact they refer to the slaves as brutes. In A.D. 79, the term "Brute" would have still only meant "betrayer", and would not have been congruous with "savage" seeing as how the infamous Brutus had only recently helped to assassinate Julius.

Also took note of the parallel between gladiators and actors. Hunger Games, too. That's another one I find a parallel to Hollywood.

And so many hit songs are written specifically to warn about or to protest the entertainment industry, only to ironically become hits, which people sing, having no clue.

But not all of us who are largely annoyed and bored with the industry and its products are naïve, olaru12. I'm with BMI myself. Although so are a million, so it's nothing to simply say it. Most of that million haven't researched entertainment law either.

What was I talking about?

Sharks. Right.

The money already goes to China if it is screened at AMC theaters or is produced by Legendary Entertainment as they are both property of The Wanda Group.

The Chinese are buying us all, I believe Trump knows this and wants it to stop. These actors just want to keep their Chinese hush money.

This would be the perfect time to replace them all with computers. That would truly be win-win for the world.

LMAO! Good, let the babies go. If it weren't for their overinflated paycheques matching their overinflated egos, people would still be able to afford to go to the movies instead of downloading.

They are there for OUR entertainment. Why do people care (or even let them sway for Gods sake!) how and what they think!?!?

I have never asked a Busker on the street corner for information on how to live my life, but then that street busker doesn't hold a wide audience...look at how people grasped onto Jenny McCarthy when she started blathering on about Autism and vaccinations!
People deserve what they choose to believe.

You do realize entertainment has always been an avenue for creative speech?

In fact, that's how it started. Instead of arguing, tell a creative story to get the point across.

Ignorant Kings who despise their subjects are always doomed to fail, but true, ignorant court jesters are destined for death.

BMI....sweet! Union gig? 600?

I just finished up a stint with ESPN on the college bowl game circuit as AC/dolly grip. Fun!!
Back in Tamalewood out at Q studios...."Better Call Saul"

We both know all this huffing and puffing anti Hollywood is just BS.

Our place in American culture is solid. The A listers have as much right to express themselves as anyone else. I also have the right to ignore and/or ridicule anyone.

I'm astonished that people get so triggered by movie stars.

I agree, the huffing and puffing has just as much to do with blue collar entitlement and jealousy as it also does the fact the lots of people in the entertainment industry are ignorant about the lives of those outside of it.

Those in entertainment are heard more because of their role, that's all. Lots of silliness on both sides.

No Union gig. Just baking the bread, so to speak.

I'm fortunate to have been blue collar, white collar, homeless, praised, beat up, and cared for.

I get a nice objective view.

If just one of them stuck to their word and permanently moved to Canada, it may be remotely believable. I vote for racist Oprah to be the first.

Think you got my comment wrong olaru. It was tongue in cheek. I have no need to support Trump, Clinton, or anyone in the US for that matter.

As for a trigger,,,, dunno where you got that idea. Just poking fun at those actors and entertainers that feel they need to use their status/position to cry crocodile tears when they don't get their wishes. Doesn't have to be the election over in the US could be any other issue.

cheers, appreciate your reply,

kind regards,

bally

Casually talking about killing American citizens for expressing an opinion.

What have we become?

That's the entitled blue collar attitude to which I was referring. They turn on the radio and the TV, but castigate you for being one of the artists and for even considering that hard work is what makes an artist - not hitting the lottery, as so many of the uninformed claim.

There is a lot of bias in the industry and a lot of the devil's work for sure, but that also exists within the companies these same people collect their hard earned paychecks from every week.

It's just ignorance.

It's ignorance that stems from false narratives and an extreme lack of critical thinking and experience.

They have seen it all, they've worked it all, but they really haven't at all.

Their knuckles bleed and their backs hurt and their employees are rebellious, but such is also the case for the very people they demean.

If the blue collar workforce hadn't proven to be so entitled by their mangled bodies and paychecks so as to deride an intelligent and motivated soul who came in performing far over and above them, then they would still find me in their force.

I started my own business because of their jealousy and ignorance, so I suppose a thanks instead of complaint is in order.

And that business helped to support my creative undertaking.

Which still prove to support another goal which shall go unnamed.

It's a game, unfortunately. Some get stuck on the first level. Some others like me keep playing and failing at every level and reloading the game until the solution is figured out.

Some others, still, have clout, which provides a shortcut in some cases.

But there is much ignorance and ignorance can lead decent people to have sore lapses in judgment.

It takes much suffering, if the parents didn't guide you, to follow what common sense dictates:. Learn and try and fail and never quit until you stop failing. And also, don't waste your time telling people something won't work while they're busy trying to prove it.

Interestingly enough, people versus Trump are indeed making that mistake. But those with an overly emotional defense for Trump indeed commit to the same heartless thoughts.

An ignorant is always an ignorant. Their speech and actions may appear different, but the person is just a robotic entity emulating their culture. They're all the same make and model, though.

They are a joke and such massive drama queens. "Halp the candidate I wanted didn't get elected, I better go on strike!"

Hell, I wanted to go on strike when Obama was elected both times. I didn't because I knew no one would care and it wouldn't change anything, just like they won't change anything.
