So Obama goes to überliberal Hollywood, home of the überrich white hypocrites who get paid millions, shirk on their taxes, take every tax dodge known to man on the taxes they DO bother to pay, while self-righteously declaring that the Middle Class should suck it up and render to Obama what is due to him (i.e. everything, because of course we owe everything to Obama and his big government State). And the Los Angeles Times celebrates the moment with its title, “Obama visits DreamWorks, calls Hollywood a ‘bright spot’ of economy.”
Mind you, these are the people who make movie after movie making themselves rich glorifying gun violence only to tell us that we have to give up our guns – the same guns that Hollywood liberals and their Hollywood-Liberal-in-Chief rely upon to protect themselves while doing every damn thing they can to deny that protection to everyone else.
Which is why examples of Hollywood hypocrisy abound. And so:
The American Federation of Musicians is fighting mad at their Hollywood paymasters. What could separate these two institutions of liberalism? Cash, of course. AFM is upset that Marvel’s Iron Man 3 decided to go abroad to use foreign musicians for cheap. John Acosta, vice president of AFM Local 47, summed up the case against Marvel: “Marvel is unfair to musicians because they take tax breaks from states but when it comes to doing a score for their movies, they outsource the work overseas. We’ve been protesting and raising the alarm about this over two years since Iron Man 1 and we feel those jobs belong in the US.”
For years, individual states have been reaching out to the film industry in an attempt to woo Hollywood dollars. Recognizing the business-hating climate of Los Angeles, even liberal governors are trying to outcompete the Hollywood locals by handing out tax breaks and incentives
To be a liberal is to be a hypocrite who says, “What I want to impose upon thee is not good for me.” So I’ll follow the example of my hypocrite Democrat Party and pass a “health care reform” law that screws everybody else but vote myself safe from it’s grasp.
But there was this admission buried in the back of the LA Times article even as it attempted to glorify President False Messiah:
Obama’s visit and upbeat message about the entertainment industry come at a time of widespread anxiety among the middle-class crew members in Southern California who work behind the scenes on films and TV shows.
Many have seen job opportunities and incomes dwindle as work has migrated to other states and countries that offer film productions tax breaks and incentives better than those available in California.
“Some indicators suggest that activity in the entertainment industry is up, but that has not translated into jobs here in California,” said Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “In fact, the number of industry-related jobs locally and in California has shown little improvement since the recession, even as industry employment nationally has increased modestly over the past couple of years.”
More than 50 visual effects workers held a rally outside the studio to call attention to the plight of California’s visual effects industry, which has been hard-hit by layoffs, foreign subsidies and the outsourcing of jobs.
DreamWorks itself, which employs 2,200 people, laid off about 350 employees earlier this year after a decision to shelve production of the movie “Me and My Shadow,” but that layoff was not tied to outsourcing.
“This is not an attack on DreamWorks Animation or Obama, but we do not have jobs coming to us. They are all going to other countries,” said Tom Capizzi, a longtime visual effects employee who in February lost his job at Rhythm & Hues. “It’s having a huge impact on the workers of Los Angeles.”
Obama was in L.A. on the last leg of a three-day West Coast tour to raise money for Democratic House and Senate candidates. His itinerary included two fundraisers Monday night, one at the home of athlete and entrepreneur Magic Johnson and another at the home of Hollywood mogul Haim Saban, who is chairman of Spanish-language channel Univision Communications Inc. On Tuesday morning, the president attended a Democratic fundraiser at the Hancock Park home of Marta Kauffman, co-creator of the television show “Friends.”
What happens when a socialist president imposes high taxes? Hollywood liberals put their money in foreign projects so they won’t have to pay out their wazoos, that’s what happens.
It’s only wrong when the Koch brothers do it, though, in the minds of sanctimonious, self-righteous, pathologically hypocritical liberals.
Liberal-dominated California is too morally stupid to ever understand that high taxes equal low growth and low growth equals no damn jobs.
That’s the beauty of ObamaCare right now: all the quintessentially self-centered liberals who were fine with somebody ELSE getting royally screwed are now appalled – APPALLED! – that they’re the ones getting screwed, too.
Liberal labor unions are the worst (because they’re the most liberal, and the more liberal you are, the more despicable and depraved a human being you are): they are beyond outraged that they would have to suffer the results of their own damn FASCISM that they worked so hard to impose on everyone else. How DARE you not exempt them???
Every liberal who votes that SOMEBODY ELSE pay higher taxes is nothing more than a hypocrite who is willing to undermine American productivity so they can feel warm inside. They would do better to just pee in their pants instead; that way they can have all the feeling of “warmth” they want without inflicting their childish stupidity on everybody else.
If you want an industry to be able to succeed, LOWER THEIR DAMN TAXES so they can actually keep their profits. If you want the American people to be allowed to prosper, LOWER THEIR DAMN TAXES.
It is so damn simple: Tax Cuts Increase Revenues; They Have ALWAYS Increased Revenues.
