Hi, DG, I hope things are going better for you. Have I heard a peep out of Hollywood, concerning the continuation of the Bushcrap and now the
Obamacrap? Nope. It's because these people are blind.
And I want to say right now. I don't think this is a new thought. It isn't for me. And I don't believe it is a new thought for others.
In 1976, Jimmy Carter was elected president. He expressed an opinion that people who earned more money than they needed to live on should give more
money to the IRS, voluntarily. And he backed up his belief. Each year he paid more to the IRS than was required, while he was president. I haven't
followed his IRS returns since then.
So now I ask, those Hollywood creeps, who did not support Bush, and complained they didn't pay enough taxes. Ooops.They never did say they didn't
pay enough taxes. They said, people weren't paying enough taxes.
And to Bill Clinton, who also proclaimed the rich people weren't paying enough taxes, then why did you donate your used underwear to charity and
take a tax break for this?
Before someone thinks I am going off topic, I want to say, just file a short form IRS return. Just do that. Don't pretend. Just file the short form,
just like I do each year, even though I could claim all sorts of deductions. I don't maybe I am stupid.
But I put my money where my mouth is. Why can't Hollywood?
Why can't Hollywood, who many people from there railed against Bush's tax cuts, have just said, no, I will pay more.Why can't Hollywood, who as a
collective, railed against the wars, just shut up about the Afhganistan war, while even our present administration claims that there is no war. lol.
Oh, and we might have to be there for 10 more years.
And the BBC says, there is no Al Qaiduh, and never was,
Our president says he doesn't want to talk in terms of victory because, oh, well, it just sounds too warlike, and yet still talks about defeating
What's this all about?
What it's all about is a continuation fo the previous administratiion, but now a different "party" is in control. And so now all is okay.
Now why are people no longer saying, I don't pay enough taxes, why are people supporting more of the same from the last administration?
DG, I think you know the answer, you just can't put it into words. just like me, although I tried.
Lemme try again. It's a feel good game.
Not one of these people are actually going to give up their riches and comfort, they will just proclaim the feel good attitude. Meanwhile, they will
continue to rake in their riches.
Hello! Nicholas Cage owes over 6 million dollars in income taxes? Huh? You didn't earn enough to pay this? Just short form it. No problem. eh?
Hollywood can now sit tight, with Obama in control. It won't affect them one iota. In the 30's Hollywood thrived while America suffered through the
great depression. Why? People needed to escape from their troubles through a couple hours of feel good movies on a Saturday.Hollywood will thrive
again. Mark my words.
I, a guy who doesn't like to sit in a crowded room with lots of coughing and sniffling and noisy people to watch a movie, is now going to watch a
first run movie about twice a month. It's for escape. Hollywood will reap the benefits from our current situation.
Just my rambling assessment. Probably I am wrong. lol, I am wrong so much. But, yet, I still see some sort of pattern that I can't quite just
