I notice that many of these Hollywooders go wacky shortly after their career is over.
“I notice that many of these Hollywooders go wacky shortly after their career is over.”
Most don’t wait that long.
We need jobs, but this liberal idiot is so poisoned by “green” and anti-capitalism that he couldn’t case less about the unemployed.
For example, today’s miraculous initial job claims report! IT WAS ACTUALLY THE WORST DECLINE IN 2nd WEEK JOBLESS CLAIMS SINCE 2009.
This, from the guy with “SUNDANCE” vanity plates on his Porsche.
Hollywood, that area of the country where brains reside in the crouch.
Question for Redford: If Barry stands up to Big Oil, why is the Lockerbie bomber free as a bird...?
Private oil is not “Big Oil”. Private companies own about 5 percent of the oil in the world.
Government oil is “Really Big Oil”. They are the 95 percent.
Opec is Big Oil. Department of the Interior is Big Oil. Saudi Aramco is Big Oil. PDVSA is Big Oil.
American oil companies typically work as contractors to “Really Big Oil”.
True! These people have been sheltered so long by Money and getting things free just being a celeb they don’t understand what it’s like to struggle. As long as they can fill up the Mercedes and the Private Jet.....
Doesn’t he have a unicorn ranch out west somewhere?
What would happen if on his next trip, Redford’s jet ran out of “big oil?”
This from a guy who turned Park City, Utah from a small quiet mountain town into a Yuppified s**thole. Got it.
I stood next to Robert Redford at the maitre d’ stand at a restaurant on Cape Cod. I’m 6’1”. He was wearing cowboy boots with 3” heels and only came up to my chin. He is downright petite.
How come he didn’t star in “All the President hos” the story of Bill Clinton?
That's what I've heard too. But yet when you search google, there's all types of bios that list him at 5'10".....Obviously trying to portray him as a figure bigger than life
Back around 2005 I had a manager who had to fly out to Phoenix to attend a pension benefits seminar where Redford was a guest speaker. He said all that redford spoke about was environmentalism, nothing relating to the the seminar.
These damn enviro-scum are taking blood money from the arabs and the venezuelan commies.
Shut down your mansions until they are "green powered". Shut down your Sundance Studio and Festival in Utah until it is powered by "green". Stop using money for first class and/or private jet until it is "green".
Of course you won't. You're a blazing hypocrite like so many others in your, We-Love-Ourselves-With-All-Our-Awards-and-Patting-Ourselves-On-The-Back industry. I'm actually glad to see one industry moving off-shore (Canada mostly). Oops, there goes those union jobs...you dumb ass.
So sad - too bad.
Celebrities... *sigh*... is there anything they don’t know~!
