We sure have come a long way from the rebellious Hollywood of the 1960s and 70s; the Hollywood that railed against The Man and conformity, and preached to a generation of young people about the idea of liberty and individualism.
In just a few generations the guardians of Hollywood have gone from Easy Riders to "Funny or Die" sell-outs eager to propagandize for Big Government, all in an effort to dupe young people into paying for health insurance they do not need:
Wedged into the blotter on Mike Farah's desk at the Funny or Die studios in Hollywood is an index card with a list — wrangling talent, polishing scripts and arranging shoots — long enough to keep the comedy website executive fully occupied. But these tasks are part of a different quest: the campaign to ensure the success of President Obama's healthcare law.
While the GOP-led House passed a spending bill Friday that would strip federal funding for the Affordable Care Act and force a confrontation with the Senate that could shut down the government, Farah and his team were developing as many as 20 projects involving the healthcare law. The first will go live on Sept. 30, the day before Americans are supposed to be able to enroll in the new health insurance marketplaces.
Young, healthy people are the biggest dupes in this wealth redistribution hustle that has been disguised as a health care plan. Without the young and healthy paying for premiums they don't need, the whole Ponzi scheme collapses.
But rather than warn young people; rather than fight for their freedom and rights and educate them, Funny or Die is gearing up to sell them out to The Collective.
Hollywood used to be great.
