If you could make anyone in the world stop talking…Daily Post Topic #294

If you could make anyone in the world stop talking….that would be either Michael Moore or Sean Penn. Both endlessly criticize the government and policy makers. both criticize ‘corporate america’. Both have benefited and continue to benefit from governmental programs and corporate perks. For instance, both have become wealthy through the opportunities and programs. They both, for instance are movers and shakers in hollywood. They are both multimillionaires. Neither of them has volunteered to pay extra taxes and “do their fair share”. But they are full of criticism about bankers, oilmen, etc. It leaves me shouting at their TV. They never speak about what they personally will do to help this group or that group of hurting citizens. Penn, of course, headed to Haiti to help them. But apparently he has no love lost for impoverished suffering people in this country. Both of them have benefitted from special governmental programs allowing tax deductions and write-offs for filmmakers….while verbally beating up other industries for their tax deductions.  It seems… shall we say…two-faced and disingenous.
