Obviously there's no point To Damon making millions off of GUN VIOLENCE.



Of course there is a point. The point is to make make money off of those that enjoy depictions of gun violence.

In the US of A, we like us some gun violence and Hollywood folks are good capitalists. They make money by supplying a certain demand.

Now does that mean they should shut up because they do so?

I think not.

I think you were once again caught talking out of your ass and, as usual, you double down on the idiocy.

He made millions in the entertainment industry... not gun violence.

Anyway, I'm sure Aussies will welcome him with open arms... His American dollars are all good here.

Maybe those hollywood-types should just shut up when they've made millions running around shooting and killing people.

Especially the Jason Bourne types.



It's just a movie. It's not real they are just pretending to shoot and kill people. They are actors.

But I agree with you that the 1st amendment shouldn't apply to actors.

You do know that Trump is a member of the actors union SAG-AFTRA. My union...Strong and Proud!

Reading the actual story it sounds like they are just injecting Trump into the story.

He has been attacked by liberals for calling out the #metoo movement.

I'm not going to be too hard on him, he has been fighting the "liberal" madness.

Well, actually I do. It all goes back to the early 90's and Rush Limbaugh. Funny how the propaganda is still working.


Actually you don't.

It has everything to do with running their mouths like their opinion is more important than anyone elses.



And that is why the Right Wing is obsessed with Hollywood-types?



Because they’re the biggest bunch of f’n hypocrits. They make millions and pat themselves on the back during their award shows all the while pretending to relate to the common man working a 60 hour middle class job. Then pretend
to be anti-gun and anti-gun violence while being protected by armed security details and starring in shoot ‘em up violent movies.

Good news! A man of his word, like our President. As you said, we need more of those butt-hurt stars to show some integrity. To do what they said they were going to do!

I thought Americans loved their "freedom of speech" and 2nd ammendment?

Anyone figure out yet what is it that President Trump has done to drive him to another country? Since he is all about feeding the poor and providing drinking water around the world Trump's tax cuts must have really pissed him off...lol

So now he can pay his 49% taxes and feel good about it.

I always find it humorous how the opposite ends of the political spectrum often end up in the same place...
Completely ignorant of this most obvious of ironies...

Again, SNL had a brilliant skit in the run up to the 2016 election

Why would you be "hard on him" even if he hadn't been "fighting the liberal madness"?

His a brilliant actor and made himself millions of dollars from it... He's earned the right to live anywhere he pleases.

It'd be an awesome laid back lifestyle living in Byron Bay, if you could afford it... good for him.

Nothing shows your commitment to country than moving away.
What an inspiration!
Patriots, here is our fearless leader.


People can't move away.
Why do people feel the need to talk #?
All the good riddance crap.

Didn't know a person had to live in the states forever

With that much integrity, I’m sure then he’ll cut a check and give back the $ from the huge tax break he got from his millions, which was instituted from Trump’s tax plan, since he disagrees so much.

Think you missed the point. The story says it is because Trump.

There's been a lot of issues with him and "the liberal madness"

I jumped on him believing HE actually made this statement.

He didn't make the statement.

And yes I have almost all his movies, and yes Australia is cool.

Good for him. Australia is a great place to live. I hope he and his family are happy there.


Actually, the only place I've ever wanted to go.

But, Australians leave there and move elsewhere. I wonder what they're looking for. I wonder if they want to return.

Great. Now who are we going to get to overact roles for blood-thirsty angels?

I'm sorry but... I'm still burnt about his performance in that movie.

If I ever won the lotto, I'd be packing my bags and moving to good old 'Merica', the very next day.

...That's where all the action happens.

I'm sure he'll enjoy continuing to pay US income taxes while he lives elsewhere and utilizes Australia's resources.

I'm sure his kids will be safer in Australia's public schools.
His kids were in public school right?
