PvtStash: Zero sympathy.

Cry a river for your own interests when you had more options and opportunity than most ever get in a life time. Millions of your fellow citizens have been going without health care your entire lives. Where was your of tears for them? Where was your voice for those who didn't have one?

Now that your own health care group, that is subject to the free market health care like everyone else, is having to deal and now that this has an influecn on your life, now you have a voice about the concerns of health care needs in America?

go eat your own ass holes, all of you even the ones i like, i still like you, but  on this front you're a selfish little piece of piggy shiat that's earns only contempt from me for this. They can have all the concern and sympathy from me on their health care problems now, that i seen them giving to their fellow citizens these last 30 years.


The one time you post something I can actually parse, and it's this.  Show me on the doll where Hollywood touched you.

How long will it take before anyone can say the words "dental plan" without someone else, or even the first person's inner voice, instantly replying "Lisa needs braces!"

That episode is so old it can't be covered on its parent medical plan

Bondith: Wave Of Anal Fury: phedex: If you're old enough to get medicare, and you have a net worth in the millions of dollars, Why should you have that kind of benefit when you're past retirement age?

The vast majority of actors (even members of SAG-AFTRA) aren't worth millions.  The article doesn't mention it specifically, but I suspect the big name wealthy actors are advocating for the majority that will be negatively impacted by the changes.

Altruism and selflessness is a foreign concept to certain people.


Yep.  "F*ck you, I got mine."  Actors seem to be more willing to go to bat for the little guy because a) most of them started out at the bottom, doing commercials and other grunt work, and b) they know how fickle Hollywood is, and how quickly you can fall from top billing to unable to get a job.

sinner4ever: Now I understand why these people support the Clintons and Bidens of the country.
This is their first taste of what the rest of us have known all along.
Maybe start with more fundraisers for people that want Americans to have healthcare next time.

Obligatory - Welcome to the party pal!


Ignoring the fact that I'm pretty sure all these people haven't been wealthy their whole lives, this is undoubtedly in support of actors who truly need it and aren't multimillionaires.

Wave Of Anal Fury: It didn't become the wealthiest by being nice.


It became the wealthiest by convincing the poors to hate each other and convincing them selfishness is a virtue.

But I get you.
