Just when I thought I'd heard it all...

…there is good old Jim Carrey to remind us what terrible people we all are here in the good old U.S. of A. After all, it has to be at least 10 whole minutes, I’m guessing, since we’ve gotten some pearl of political wisdom from the far left loons out there in La-La Land, aka Hollywood, where they are certainly more in touch with reality than any of us poor saps here, slaving away in the heartland.

In a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune, while promoting his new movie, A Christmas Carol, Carrey pontificated thusly:

“I was thinking about it this morning, how this story ties into everything we’re going through,” says Carrey, who, thanks to the technology, plays Scrooge as well as the three ghosts haunting him. “Every construct we’ve built in American life is falling apart. Why? Because of personal greed and ambition. Capitalism without regulation can’t protect us against personal greed.. . .

Some might wonder if Carrey’s recent recital of this latest bit of pseudo-philosophical flatulence was the result of a lukewarm response to the first weekend showing of his new movie, but, in reality, this sanctimonious simp’s interview was given a few days prior to the film’s release, which hopefully was responsible, in part, for the sluggish box office receipts.

Maybe it’s just that the common folk see the hypocrisy of a Canadian born comedian who comes to America and, after working his way up the rungs of Hollywood’s slimy ladder, now commands as much as $20 million per picture, but who also has the temerity to now lecture us money-grubbing capitalists on the sins of greed and ambition.

Hey Jimbo! I might be more inclined to swallow your dubious diatribe if you were to redistribute some of those ill-gotten gains of yours my way. I’m not overly greedy; a million or two should do it.
