This Guy Really Has Balls
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.
