Golden Globes . . . Meryl Streep . . .Mark Wahlberg. . . Keep politics out of show-business!

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t,” he told Task & Purpose last week, at a swanky luncheon in New York, held on behalf of his upcoming film “Patriots Day.” We were talking about the parade of actors and musicians who lined up to denounce Donald Trump in the months and weeks leading up to Election Day.
“A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family.”
“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” he continued. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills. A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
This election cycle has certainly been about the regular guy, the average American and things that affect them. As it should always be, and it still seems to be reflecting that message everywhere, to the annoyance of the left.

By now you've probably heard what Meryl Streep said at the golden globes when she accepted her award, she is one of my favorite actresses, but I am very disappointed in her. Her opinion is her own, I just don't think that an award show is the time or place to disrespect the President elect. I'll never understand why they can't just accept their award, enjoy it, without getting all political.

This has been floating around social media and it is so true . . .

Dear Hollywood celebrities, You exist for my entertainment. Some of you are great eye candy. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you can scare the crap out of me. Others make me laugh. But you all have one thing in common, you only have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it. You make your living pretending to be someone else. Playing dress up like a 6 year old. You live in a make believe world in front of a camera. And often when you are away from one too. Your entire existence depends on my patronage. I’ll crank the organ grinder; you dance. I don’t really care where you stand on issues. Honestly, your stance matters far less to me than that of my neighbor. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again. I don’t care that you don't like Mr.Trump. But I bet you looked cute saying it. Get back into your bubble. I’ll let you know when I’m in the mood for something blue and shiny. And I'm also supposed to care that you will leave this great country if Trump becomes president? Ha. Please don't forget to close the door behind you. We'd like to reserve your seat for someone who loves this country and really wants to be here. Make me laugh, or cry. Scare me. But realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. I might agree with some of you from time to time, but it doesn’t matter. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment.

Of course they aren't smart enough to realize that the people they are dogging are the ones that go and watch their movies, TV shows, concerts etc. So it doesn't make much sense to tell them that they're wrong. We are all entitled to our own opinion, I just don't believe that an award's show, such as the Golden Globes are the place to make a political statement. 

 I am not dogging Meryl, I just think she had poor timing in speaking her opinion about President elect-Trump. Eight years ago I was not a happy camper about Obama but I was willing to give him a shot. It seems as though the liberal left isn't even willing to do that. Prior the the election they said over and over again, that they would accept the outcome of the election. Well . . . they haven't, if anything they've tried to make things more difficult for Trump. 
Since Meryl's statement Sunday night I know that I will be very selective of the movies I pay to see. And maybe that's the answer. Since we are customer's of their entertainment the only way to let them know how we feel about their behavior is to not to go to their movies.

Little does she know, that there is a huge number of us that love football and MMA, so saying that is all we'll have to watch doesn't bother us, because a lot of us would rather watch sports.
