“And the award goes to…”

It’s not enough that all of these people in the world of entertainment get paid quite handsomely. They require our applause and adoration as well.  They also need to have their egos massaged quite regularly and be told how wonderful they are, how talented they are, and how important they are.  Many of them then use their notoriety and access to mass media to throw their liberal beliefs in our faces, while impressing each other with how much better and smarter they are than “We the People,” the “common” people.

Yes, these public figures, and politicians, do a good job of patting themselves, and each other, on the back.

“We the People” don’t hear any applause when we’re at work. We probably don’t get paid that well, and we’re not getting any awards or even recognition for a job well done. We don’t ask for much, but it would be nice to not be lied to or talked down to, while being bombarded with your political wisdom and diatribe.
