An open letter to celebrities
I have just spent the last 8 years listening to you rant about how much you hated Bush. Some even threatened to leave the country (but didn't). I know this is a free country but free speech just means you can say you hate the president without worrying that you'll be killed or thrown in jail for it. It does not mean force your veiws down my throat. We don't care what your political views are.
We have a new president. if you didn't vote for him, fine. Shut up about it. Talk amongst your friends and families about it. If you win an award, accept it graciously and keep your politics out of it. In fact, if you want to use your celebrity, how about setting an example? RESPECT THE OFFICE! I didn't vote for Obama but I will not badmouth him like you do. He is our leader and even if you didn't vote for him, others did. Respect their views, too.
Don't go on tv ranting about how much you hate someone. It has the opposite effect-I tune you out. Again, respect the office, please. Thank you.
