America: Love It, or Please Leave It

There are a number of celebrities who threatened (promised) to leave America if George Bush were reelected. He was reelected and none of them left. The only ones I am aware are gone are Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, both of whom live in England and more as a practical matter. I saw after the 2004 election where the left drew up a map and had the red areas labeled Jesus Land and the blue areas were supposed to be the real US. The cried that they either wanted to leave or wanted their blue enclaves to break off into their own country.

I remember during that time when another blogger said something about leaving and I told him I would pay for the ticket but he had to give up his US citizenship and the ticket was only one way. Someone from the left posted the part where I would pay for the ticket but left out the part where it was an offer to one person. I had a number of inquiries about free tickets and could I pay for the families and the moving trucks and all that but no one offered to give up citizenship. The thing is, if a person hates this country and wants to leave they are free to do so but we should strip that person of citizenship.

Gwyneth Paltrow recently did an interview where she discussed how she was so infatuated with life in the UK and how much more sophisticated the people there are:

Oscar-winning US actress Gwyneth Paltrow feels dinner talk is far more interesting in her adopted homeland Britain than back in her native country.

“I love the English lifestyle, it’s not as capitalistic as America. People don’t talk about work and money, they talk about interesting things at dinner,” she told “NS,” the weekend magazine supplement of daily Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias on Saturday.

“I like living here because I don’t fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans,” the 34-year-old added. Breitbart

I will not take issue over much of this. Intelligence is a matter of the individual, not necessarily the country. I have met dumb Brits just as I have met dumb Americans. I have met smart people from both countries as well. So that is a moot point. Gwyneth did say that English lifestyle is not as capitalistic. Ya think? They are very socialized there. They pay taxes to provide for everything for everybody. They do not have a true capitalist system where a lot of people make good money and the cost of living is through the roof. However, it is funny that she would say they do not talk about money. Why would a person like Gwyneth, who makes $15 million per movie, would need to talk about money. The rest of us would sit at dinner and discuss how much a car, or food costs. Gwyneth does not have to worry about such menial things because she makes $15 million every time they film her reciting words someone else wrote.

Well, she is entitled to her opinion but if she really feels like this why does she not give up her American citizenship and get a British one? She could live with the folks she likes to have dinner conversation with and she could film all her movies in the English studios where they make all those block buster movies, oh wait, that is done in her native land. We don’t need or want people in America if they do not want to be here. They should do us a favor and leave for good.

When the stuff hits the fan they will all be running back to America. Of course, after her remarks, it will be lonely for Gwyneth at the restaurant.

  1. I hate these people who are members of the most materialistic group [entertainment] and make the most money for doing the least of anything who then get on a soapbox about the “ills of wealth and capitalism”…what a privileged position to be in where you can keep your wealth and then criticize others who talk about trying to get it. Must be nice…what really shocked me about this story was that this chick grew up in New York! NY is suppose to be the sophisticated and worldly bastion. I hope they like what she said about them. Maybe she should just find some new American friends who are not as stuck up as she sounds.
