I remember some of those commercials back in the 80's/90's these guys using these songs in their campaigns. Really tacky and corny. Like the musician should be honored. Give me a break. Another reason why I just don't get into politicians.

People in the television, music and movie industries overwhelmingly support Democrats.

I wonder if it is true.
I've always thought that people in the television, music and movie industries are usually materialistic, overpaid, overestimated, often opportunistic and parasitic persons .

I would not be delighted to be supported by them

1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

James 5:1-6

Steve, I appreciate when you are humouring me because that compels me to review my exaggerations.

Of course in showbiz there are some good people, but that's notoriously an environment with a high degree of corruption, which often attracts corrupted people and which tends to corrupt.

I can imagine that all the small flaws of ego are magnified in that environment, where you can easily loose an objective perception on your own identity.


My only problem with that is that the vast sums of money freely hurled at celebrities, by the law of conservation of mass-energy, must be taken away from some more worthy projects, supporting research, helping the poor, the working class and so on.

But hyronically it is just the working class which often supports such waste.
