Hollywood.....step right up!

Everywhere I look I see the face of some celebrity I want to slap – rallying, giving money to and working for causes around the globe. Brad Pitt, Nora Jones, Clint Eastwood to name a few, who stepped up to the plate for the Tsunami victims.

Barbra Streisand, Danny DeVito, Will Smith, Jane Pauley and Bill Cosby all have their own foundations (among many others) that give to anything from South African relief funds to financing their trips to Iraq to show their (non) support of our troops.

And then there’s the celebrities who give of their time and finances generously to anti-American causes, such as Martin Sheen showing up at Cindy Sheehan’s camp.

Do I think it’s a bad thing that celebrities share their wealth? Absolutely not! If I had the kind of money many of them have, I would most definitely help those less fortunate than myself.

So what’s my rant?

I want to see Hollywood step up to the plate and help clean up the Gulf Coast. I want to see the likes of Brad Pitt, Barbra Streisand, Martin Sheen and the rest of them out there mopping up the mess and pledging money to rebuild those communities. Most of these celebrities are born and raised Americans (although few of them act like it). How about keeping some of that cash right here at home? How about Donald Trump and Martha Stewart who could part with millions and not feel it?

I read a quote from Angelina Jolie the other day. She said, “Brad and I are going to adopt a lot more babies”. Well, Angelina….there are some orphans in New Orleans and Biloxi who need a mama.

    The irony of the situation is this. Inevitably, they are going to help out. Why? Because we are bithcing about it. If we never mentioned it, they wouldn't feel the need to but because people are bringing it up, the stars will come.

    As I mentioned in my blog, what about a U2 concert? That would be exciting! The best part is, the three states that the hollywood pukes have to help are RED states. God forbid they help that cause.

    Where's Kofi Annan telling all the countries to stop being "stingy" and cough up the cash. WTF! It's kind of ridiculous that they all turn and look away when we need help.

    I say we cash in all of our loans. Go to all countries that we have lent money to and say, "Times up losers."

    You know what though, we don't need them. I say t' hell with them. We are America and we will prevail. We came back from Pearl Harbor, 9/11, and now Katrina.

    Who are you kidding?? They won't look good to their "Free Tibet" friends. There is no glory in helping the U.S. and it's citizens. Screw the likes of Hollywood... (with few exceptions... Mel Gibson, Pat Sajak, Tom Sellick, Charlton Heston, anyone else I forgot to mention with their head srewed on straight...)
