These hollywood jackasses continue to amaze me every time they run there mouths. Now possible one of the worst actors in hollywood who banks millions of dollars a movie thinks CEO’s are overpaid. This from a guy who is in a completely useless industry which is famous for cheating on taxes. Just about every movie blockbustrer made is written of as “losing money”. Is there really any other occupation in the history of mankind whose participants are so grossly overpaid. For the most part actors are barely educated malcontents who contribute nothing to the human experience. Could there really be a more dysfunctional group of humans outside of congress then these clowns. Why is it they feel so supererior to the rest of us they think we give a shit what they think about anything. The biggest disappointment I have in are culture is how much worship the public gives to these idiots. Everytime I see one of these “actors” sitting in front of congress giving testimony I feel like democracy has failed. There are so many middle-class folks busting there ass everyday many doing more for mankind in one hour then these “actors” will do in there entire existence. I laugh every time these “actors” show up on TV tying to guilt the public into giving up hard earned income for another “cause of the month”. Ever notice when these folks make a big deal about raising money for a charity there clothes, jewelry and limousines are worth more then there “donation”. These “actors” are so often outred as hypocrites its hard to keep track, whether its Jane Fonda bitching about guns while her husband is busted for illegally carrying one or some other actor whining about global warming then hopping into the Hummer. Please Ben shut the F@%$ up.
Actor Who Made $12.5 Million for ‘Gigli’ Says Corporate CEOs are Overpaid
Written by Doug Powers
It’s the holidays, which means the Hollywood limo libs just keep on delivering the gifts — unintentional laughs that is.
On Tuesday’s Morning Edition, actor Ben Affleck was selling his new movie about corporate layoffs, Company Men, and anchorman Steve Inskeep carefully led the left-wing actor onto a soapbox to lecture about the immorality of American capitalism and financiers who do nothing but “move money back and forth”:
INSKEEP: There’s a line in Company Men that’s staying with me. Tommy Lee Jones is at a corporate conference table. Someone else at the conference table is discussing their plans to lay off a bunch of workers. And nearly all the workers being laid off are older, which could be construed as being wrong or illegal. Someone at the table says: “Oh, no. This is going to pass legal scrutiny.” And Jones responds: “I always thought we aimed for a little higher standard than that.”
AFFLECK: That speaks so perfectly to people’s feelings about our country. It’s like it’s just about getting by, or people can like let people go if they can get away with it, that there’s no deeper sense of right or wrong. The banks shouldn’t — people shouldn’t make such a giant profit off just moving money back and forth. And CEOs’ pay shouldn’t be 200 times the average worker. It used to be nine times Let’s throw Gigli, the disastrous movie that Affleck received $12.5 million to make, out of the mix and use a lower figure for comparison. Affleck reportedly earned a paltry $10 million for The Sum of All Fears. Let’s consider other “average workers” in that field. For example, according to the median salary for a camera operator in the television motion picture industry in Los Angeles is just over $80,000 per year.
Affleck makes in the neighborhood of 125 times more than that on one movie. Factor in an entire year and he probably earns in the neighborhood of 500 times the “average worker” in his industry — maybe a lot more.
Before we start regulating CEO pay, maybe we should start with actors. The Hollywood left likes the idea of creeping socialism, just as long as it doesn’t creep any farther west than San Bernardino.

Once again a family is mourning a son lost to political ambitions of the Washington elite. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are responsible for the chaos and mayhem along our southern borders. Like past administrations they have blood on there hands for choosing politics over national security and the safety of all Americans. The undermanned Border Patrol is completely overwhelmed by the murderous mexican drug lords and smugglers who prey on our southwestern border states. Nothing short of deploying up to 50-75 thousand U.S. military troops to the border will stop the invasion of hundreds thousands of criminals who violate or sovereignty ever year. Every single illegal alien who crosses our border illegally is spitting on our rule of law. These Washington elitist who choose to bootlick and pander to these illegals in the hope that they will gain votes are a disgrace. Our country is hemmorghing and Americans our tapped out, we cannot afford to just let this flood continue or we all win drown. There are dozens of reasons why we should take back our borders and none not too. These illegal alien criminals murder,rape and rob more Americans every year then Al Qaeda has done in its entire history. And now Obama,Pelosi and Reid are about to unleash the “Dream Act” amnesty on the American people. The Democrats thrive on rewarding bad behaviour but this bill just benefits cheaters and thieves. The country of Mexico is a warzone and no country on the planet but ours would leave there borders so exposed. How many Americans have to be murdered,raped,assaulted before Washington acts. This most recent murder of patriot serving his country lays squarely in Washington.
Teams comb Ariz. desert for suspect in agent death
Teams of border officers combed through the Arizona desert about 10 miles north of Mexico on Thursday in search of the lone outstanding suspect in the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent.
They were on horseback and all-terrain vehicles searching rugged, hard-to-reach spots in a mountainous area just north of Nogales in southeastern Arizona. Officers in patrol cars were searching the perimeter.
The suspect could be in Mexico, or could have tried his luck in Nogales or a nearby town, but he also could be hiding behind the next bush.
“Someone can hide out there very easily. There’s vegetation and they can blend in with the terrain,” Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada told The Associated Press on Thursday. “They have to continue trying and not give up until they feel there’s absolutely no chance they’ll catch him.”
The shooting Tuesday night came after agents spotted suspected bandits known for targeting illegal immigrants along a violent smuggling corridor, National Border Patrol Council President T.J. Bonner said.
Brian A. Terry, 40, was waiting with three other agents when the gun battle erupted. Terry died in the shooting. None of the other agents was injured.
Border Patrol spokesman Eric Cantu and FBI spokeswoman Brenda Lee Nath declined to confirm Bonner’s account but said that authorities have four suspects in custody and were searching for a fifth. The Border Patrol declined to reveal the country of origin of the suspects.
Cantu said Thursday he was unsure how long the search would go on if the suspect is not found.
“We’re going to extend every asset we have at our disposal,” he said. “There are many places a person can hide, especially if they have experience eluding law enforcement.”
The bandits target illegal immigrants in remote areas of the desert to rob, rape or otherwise take advantage of them. They often get away with it because their victims usually still want to try to make it to their destination.
“There’s a lot of things that happen in those valleys and canyons that don’t get reported for a lot of reasons: fear for one,” Estrada said. “They’ve come a long way, paid a big price and they’re not about to give that up.”
When reports of bandits do come it, it’s usually too late to find them, Estrada said.
The killing comes as federal and local officials say the border is safer than ever.
“It’s been safer, it’s more secure, but it’s not sealed,” Estrada said. “And it will never be sealed as long as you have the demand for drugs and people. We’ll continue to be busy for a very long time.”
As for whether there will be more killings, Estrada said “the threat is definitely there.”
“And I think everybody is mindful of that and aware of that,” he said. “It is a porous border because if you want to find a way to make it across, you can.”
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was expected to be in Arizona on Thursday and Friday to meet with Border Patrol agents in Nogales and Tucson, but had no scheduled events involving the public or members of the media.
The shooting occurred in the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector, the busiest gateway for illegal immigrants into the United States. Half of the marijuana seizures along the 1,969-mile southern border are made in the sector, which covers 262 miles of the boundary.
Terry, who is from the Detroit area, was unmarried and didn’t have children; he’s survived by his parents, a brother and two sisters.
