FOX News aired this special today called that, and obviously, it was about what would happen if certain celebrities were elected to public offices. It was hilariously bad. I know the whole "FOX News has a liberal bias" thing is played out and common sense now, but this thing didn't even make an attempt to look any other way. It wasn't as much about making fun of celebrities as it was making fun of liberal viewpoints through them. Anyway, if you want a good laugh, watch it.

So, this brings up a question: what's your opinion on celebrities talking politics?

They have every right to talk politics, but people are fucking idiots to listen to them. Whenever some fag like Bono pipes up with their political views, whoever's running the interview should politely point out that "Excuse me, but you're a stage-monkey who sings and dances for our entertainment. Nobody gives a flying fuck what some aggrandised bog-Irish thinks about third world debt. Shut the fuck up and do a funny dance for massa."

Seriously, they're supposed to be entertaining us, not lecturing us.

I think it's pretty damn stupid to expect celebrities to be something other than normal private citizens, and that includes the ability to have and voice opinions.

I think if Hollywood ran any country, it would be fucked beyond belief. I mean, look at the people in Hollywood and what the news stories coming out of there are. With the exception of a few, Hollywood is the biggest group of fuck-ups to ever walk the planet, and to make it worse, the whole 'stardom' thing goes to their head, making them egotistical fuck-ups. Long story short, we'd be in a world of shit. Let's hope it never happens.

This is a bit off topic, but I find it funny how people become obsessed with what's going on in Hollywood and with all famous people. I mean, it's one thing to have a favorite actor, singer, and whatnot, but why do people seem to want to know every last thing about them. Who gives a shit?

And I'm more of just a straight up leftist and don't buy into the liberal/conservative binary, nor do I think the lefist/liberal connection is anything more than bullshit, at least in contemporary times. I think many liberals are hypocritical arrogant cowards, and I honestly don't see much of a difference between most liberals and conservatives either: a bunch of privileged selfish people protecting privileged self interests, and I weep for people who buy into the two-party system the way you have so far.

It's cool though, cause you're probably young and I was once the same way. I just hope you grow out of that. If you don't grow out of that, you could have a future in politics, lawl.

Well, I am pretty experienced with political arguments, well, I'm pretty sure I am. I've been taking part in political debates and such since like 7th grade. And I do know quite a few people, and they all tend to divide themselves the same way: liberal, moderate, or conservative. Maybe it's just where I'm from (Maryland), because MD sucks.

I see your point though about the two party binary thing, it is pretty stupid, but it's everywhere, ya know? It's kinda hard to get away from it. But yeah, I say I'm a 'conservative' because thats where most of my views on things tend to fall, but I'm not party-blind. I look at every issue by itself, and then decide from there what I think about it. Every once in awhile I find myself in the boat with non-conservatives. So, I guess a better way of describing my political views would be slanted to the right, or something like that. Idk, I'm still learning.

I see your point though about the two party binary thing, it is pretty stupid, but it's everywhere, ya know? It's kinda hard to get away from it.

Definitely. I was the same way because it was just so fuckin' hard to get away from it. But you get older and realize the way "the political" is everywhere in life and you realize that you really don't have to operate in the binary because you're not as stuck in it anymore.


Also, thanks for not ripping me apart limb from limb like you could have there.

Emehl, do you live in a more conservative community? Are most of your friends also conservative?

I grew up in a VERY conservative area, where all of my friends were conservative, and if they weren't, they never talked about it. I was extremely conservative, myself. I was also Christian.

Then, when I was 20, I moved to possibly the most liberal state in the US. There, I gained perspective. I fought it for a long time, and got in many a political debate (even though I really, really hate arguing). After about a year there, I realized that I needed to figure out my beliefs for myself. I stepped away and threw out my political views, and started with a clean slate. I spoke with many conservatives, many liberals, and everything in between. It took me about 2 or 3 years to decide what I was (for a while, I was liberal, other times I was conservative, etc, etc), but I finally figured it out. The same thing happened with my religious views.

I really suggest trying that. I don't know how conservative your area is, but I really recommend throwing out your views, stepping away, and really getting to understand ALL sides, and then spending some time figuring out what you *really* think is the best.

Looking back, I'm actually a little bit disgusted with how conservative I was. I don't regret being Christian, but I do regret being conservative.

Actually, religion and do politics go together. I don't know where you've been, but watch some political tv shows, read a little bit. My religion does have a lot of bearing on my political views, it even teaches political views to an extent, so I really don't know where you're coming from.

Republicans won the Christians because that's what most of them tend to be, and they base their policies, or at least try to, off of what they believe. Well, at least the uncorrupted ones. If you look over at the Democrats, a lot of them tend to be Athiest or Agnostic, especially the far left, who has hijacked the Democratic party. And I hate to break it to you, but Jesus loves everyone, even you :)

Religion and politics do not go together in a separation of church and state.

Jesus' views have been misappropriated by many. The far right seems to use him quite a bit. But Liberation Theologists (Socialist Christians) have also used Jesus (and from the research I've done, they've used him more correctly).

Although the right has won the religious over, most theologists however can't be put on a political spectrum. Oh some certainly spout the worst of the flaming devil right wing rhetoric, but then again you can find presbyterian minister's in Oregon preaching practically european social-democratic views.

Although you're an idiot if you think the democratic party is run by the far left...

Yeah Joe Lieberman is also a big shot in the Democratic party, congratulations you've discoverd wing politics.

Yes it is okay to say that. The Democratic party has sought a moderate and compromising position since the 1960's. Even Hillary Clinton is moderate. By US Standards, and by world standards Hillary Clinton is right wing. The Republican party is most definitely run by the far right (this is not to say Nazis, because obviously they are not run by nazis, not that far right.) but the lobbies and organizations behind the leadership of the Republican party, and the policies put forward have always been of a right wing nature by American standards. Moderate only when compromise becomes a necessity.

The Democratic party does a good job of playing far left. Just as the Republican party did a very good job of playing moderate when it was in the opposition. Different positions require different strategies (duh). In power however the Democratic party can only play a moderate centrist-right party in comparison to the Republican party in power, which only plays a right wing party.

It really sucks, because almost everyone in America calls it "choosing between two evils." And there are independence movements everywhere (everyone knows about the south, but have you heard about the Northwest?).

Alright, point taken. You win.

As for the "choosing between two evils", it really is, and it's going to be hard to get away from that, because while there are many worthwhile independence movements, no one is willing to put all their eggs in that basket, so to speak (I know, terrible analogy).

It's kinda like the green party. I think there are a lot more people out there that agree with his politics than the voting records show, but people see it as a "lost cause" due to the republican and democrat majorites.

The only way I see us getting away from that is if the whole US gets a wild hair up their ass at the same time and votes all of these corrupted goons who are currently in office out, and votes fresh people in who haven't become corrupted by special interest groups and whatnot. That would be a beautiful thing.

I've said this many times before, politics should not be a job, but a sacrafice for your country and the people. The sad thing is, this country is being run by the people who have made it into their job, on all sides of the political spectrum.

And no, I haven't heard about the Northwest. Care to enlighten me?

Nah of course not, it wouldn't be serious yet. But take Oregon for example, for one of the richest areas in resources, we have relatively high unemployment and poverty levels, this is gay for us and is the fault of DC. Not to mention most of us have never been to DC and don't particularly know what it's like or feel close to it.

Thing about the green party is that most of the people I know who voted for it, just did so because they didn't want to chose Dem or Rep. Although 3rd parties can get significant votes. Ross Perot achieved something like 20% of the popular vote, and didn't get a single seat in our representative chambers. That's kinda fucked...

It shouldn't be so hard. But yeah the current system has it's deeply entrenched systematic corruption, figuring out how to stop it is like trying to figure out where to start eating an elephant. Sucks.

For reasons mentioned above. Also because Oregon and also partially Washington are simply too insignificant with regards to party coffers as to ever make any attempt to control opinions. They can afford (and do) to ignore us simply because we are so small and donate so little money (and our total of 5 electoral points is also worthless.) It goes on, we give so much to the federal government and get nothing in return. There really is no benefit for us in being part of America. :/

That's confusing. Is the gov't controlling the corporations/businesses/whatevers that are drilling/digging or whatever for the resources there or something? If that's the case, that's incredibly fucked up.

As for not being close to DC or knowing what it's like, you're not missing much. Being from Maryland, I've been there a good bit, and it is a shithole. The environment there goes along with all the scum and corruption that goes on.

I didn't remember anything you'd said in the past, and upon skimming this thread I thought you were a complete moron. After looking more closely I realized I had jumped to an unfair conclusion.

Oh, ok, well thank you for realizing that. I'm not a moron. Please don't throw me into a category with that ZagmenO kid, lol.

If Hollywood ran the country, we'd have more footage of G. W. Bush lying in bed with the sheets somehow reaching barely to his groin.

I'm not entirely convinced this is what everybody is looking for.

On a serious note, I think it's worse when politicians try to get celebrity status a bit, such as when Al Gore went around to all those TV shows AFTER losing.
What else was he going to do?

I know that I am.

FOX News aired this special today called that, and obviously, it was about what would happen if certain celebrities were elected to public offices. It was hilariously bad. I know the whole "FOX News has a liberal bias" thing is played out and common sense now, but this thing didn't even make an attempt to look any other way. It wasn't as much about making fun of celebrities as it was making fun of liberal viewpoints through them. Anyway, if you want a good laugh, watch it.

So, this brings up a question: what's your opinion on celebrities talking politics?


Umm, don't they already run this country? thats all people care about already is who's dating who, who's broken up, what Britney spears did last week and what new baby did Angelina adopt yesterday.

This country is obsessed with stars, being as much like them as possible and knowing all they can about them.

Personally none of them impress me and none of them are anything special. Take away the lights, cameras and computer touch ups and i see hotter girls down the street compared to most of those models we see on tv and in magazines.

No, that's what the plebs care about.

Lodat's post is all the more lawlzworthy when I remember how he took some random actress picture and claimed it was his girlfriend.

I'd give an arm, an eye & a leg just to hear & see Bush sing Fame.

Baby look at me,
And tell me what you see,
You ain't seen the best of me yet,
Give me time and I'll make you forget.

FAME! I'm gonna live forever,
I'm gonna learn how to fly HIGH,
I feel it coming together,
People will see me and cry
FAME!

Would that Hollywood ran the country.

everyone needs to stop saying models aren't pretty. it's fucking stupid. have a controversial opinion about something that isn't fucking stupid.
