Just today on Jay Leno's show, they were interviewing John Travolta's home in Florida. It has eight parking spaces - six for his cars and two for his aeroplanes. Oh, and a 1.4 mile runway round the back.
"Travolta flew daily from home to Tampa during last autumn's shoot of The Punisher, an action movie based on the antics of a Marvel comic-book hero, due to be released this spring. The actor, according to a local newspaper, "can walk out his door, under a canopied walkway and into the cockpit [of his Boeing], open the long mechanised gate [giving on to the runway] and be airborne in minutes."
Not being jealous or anything but why would anybody fly a boeing jet just to go to work when he could've flown a smaller plane or driven one of his six luxurious cars to work? So he had to fly his fancy 707, consume a shitload of fuel when most in other parts of the world who are still suffering for it, like America's bombing the shit out of Iraq just few a billion dollars a year worth of oil?
I dont care how much money u make or how famous you are, it just doesn't seem right to me.
This has gone far enough. The rest of the world can not sustain what America is using the resources at the rate it is using right now. On average, Americans use more water, more fuel, more energy, they eat more than the whole world combined. When are they gonna learn that the world is not full of fresh water, free oil oozing from the ground, and other resources that they can just TAKE without any justifiable reasons?
This is not an attack on American ideals, not an attack on American pride, not an attack on American Patriotism. So any Americans here please dont be so quick to judge my post. Just take a step back and think about it. Is it really worth all the efforts just to fulfill some "American Dream" at the expense of the rest of the world?
Thank you all for reading my post.
