Whenever the Hollywood/Broadway “elite” band together and make a public service announcement, I instinctively want to oppose it.
They could be offering immortality and I would completely miss it.
The bottom line is that people who make their living by pretending to be other people have no business weighing in on important public policy issues.
Because they are entertainers. People pay entertainers to repeat whatever script someone hands them, not to think.
Would you ever pay a construction worker to perform brain surgery?
Here is the most ridiculous line in the video:
“Now these powerful outsiders want to frack here in New York and take away our safe drinking water.”
Powerful outsiders want to take away New Yorkers’ safe drinking water?
Instead of engaging in an intelligent debate about the pros and cons of fracking, the Hollywood elite presume that big corporations want to take away safe drinking water as an end in and of itself.
There is likely a legitimate point somewhere here, but these actors have reduced it to mindless fear-mongering.
Without securing fuel to run America’s economy, these fools would likely starve in their hyper-expensive Manhattan apartments, when the country’s transportation infrastructure grinds to a screeching halt and its major cities run out of food.
