tikay wrote:I was just laughing about the way my professor and I were battling about the celebrety and how he said that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were just actors who had no business dipping into politics and we had a huge argument about it in class...me defending those two. He acted as if because they were actors they had no brains or hearts, I got so mad because he is not very smart and he thinks because he is a lawyer and teacher, he has the right to judge them? I asked if he was doing anything in politics...and doing anything to help the worlds children and such.
In the end I told him he may be just jealous of their money and the resulting influence.
Angelina and Brad have every right to be political...who isn't right? And to give to any charity they like...be involved in their goals....so what if they are actors, that does not mean they are not human. Same with the money-man... Mr.Bill right?
Hmmmm... are you answering my post? It's because I don't see it has anything to do with my post. I was not talking about politics, and whether Bill Gates could be involved in politics or not.
Anyway, about your post, I have to say I'm with your professor on this one right here. I meant, celebrities have every right to be involved in politics like everyone else, but I do not like to see them in office. They could discuss about politics, donate their money for the side they're with, raise funds for the campaign, etc. but do not try to run for a position. They have no experiments for it. Look at Anorld Schwarzenegger!

tikay wrote:You are so angry...
I meant to say that it IS connected...if you knew anything about money or politics you would see it is SO very very connected and giving to charities IS political and a move to keep ones money away from the IRS and make a political statement so Bill Gates is in effect making his political statement on the way the money should be spent and on what programs....etc. sorry if I pushed your buttons.
I just want to know why you made me feel like a dope...i know what i am talking about .

tikay wrote:You now call me uptight...great. I want to leave you with two things.
One: I was raised by the loosest people in the world so i am very open minded and no one who knows me calls me too uptight...more like too relaxed and too easy going...thus I try to begin to defend myself, which ironically results in accusations in the opposite direction...so ...life is funny that way, sometimes you cant please anyone.
Two: we live on a planet....where to some of us...especially the beat generation,everything is connected! SO...I found some proof for you since you asked.
P.S> Aren't you forgetting the angry face you made, the one that connotates & = "mad" in the smileys? You said it yourself there. Maybe you are the one who is being uptight here.

I also like Gates and Jolie and Pitt, not that I'm interested in them, but they are very successful.
