Argh. . . Why?

NYC cops to question Sutherland on head-butt claim

NEW YORK – Police in New York City say Kiefer Sutherland is expected to turn himself in for questioning about a fashion designer's claim that the actor head-butted him at a nightclub.
The star of Fox television's "24" could be charged with misdemeanor assault in the incident early Tuesday. He's expected to turn himself in on Thursday to talk with police.
Jack McCollough of the Proenza Schouler (Pro-EN'-za SKOO'-ler) fashion house claims Sutherland attacked him after an argument, leaving him with a cut on his face. Actress Brooke Shields may also be questioned as a witness.
Sutherland was released from a Glendale, Calif., jail last year after serving 48 days on a drunken driving charge.
Several calls to representatives for Sutherland, McCollough and Shields haven't been returned.

Come on folks, we have real problems that should attract the attention of everyone in our world. Wouldn't it be better to focus our attention on relevant matters and issues that effect us, our children and future generations?
Why do we bother with these people? Why do these morons get the status and the gross amounts of money that they do?
For the most part, they're a bunch of imbeciles, especially the 2nd gen boreasses like this guy and the likes of Charlie Sheen.
We treat these dumb fucks like they're royalty or worse yet, like they have some relevance. At best they are marginally talented pretty faces, at worse they are dull witted dunderheads who are a danger to themselves and people around them.
I mean, come on, when they cart these buffoons out and give them a political platform it almost makes me want to vote against ANYONE they support.
Yea, they can play a part, but if you put them into real life situations, they'd be clueless. Put em on a working class budget and see how far these little spoiled twits would get.
I dunno, maybe most of them are alright people. Maybe they're folks with good ethics and social standards, but when they become these venerated icons of what our society stands for it kinda makes me sick. We have real life heros doing real life work in this country. There are people out there busting their asses trying to make the world a better place for all of us. Where is their celebrity? Where is their reward?

So next time you go down to the local movie house and spend your hard earned bucks to see some Hollywood bullshit, remember where your money is going. It's going into the pockets of actors, producers, directors and others who are filthy rich, contribute a bare minimum to society and can't relate to you in the slightest.
Since 1974 I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've stepped foot into a movie theater, but I'll bet I've seen most of the movies of any significance that have been made since then. Most were a waste of my time.

Is your life that bad that you have to escape through Hollywood fantasy bullshit? Go buy a book.

At the risk of seeming like a mindless celebrity watcher ...
Did you know Kiefer Sutherland, the guy who portrays a right-wing icon, is a leftie? Or at least he has quite a left-wing pedigree.
His late maternal grandfather, Tommy Douglas, was the social democratic premier of Saskatchewan and is often called the father of socialized medicine in Canada. A couple of years back, he was voted "The Greatest Canadian" (ever) in a national contest held by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Kiefer's mom, an actress named Shirley Douglas, is an outspoken defender of Canada's single-payer medical system.
Dad, of course is Donald Sutherland - also known for his liberal/left views.

I used to know a guy in South Korea who head-butted a Captain, beat up four military police and killed one working dog while on Korean Sojue [a drink].
Look here, Charlie Sheen wasn't that bad in Taps with the brothers [not the movie about the academy].

Rainy, I don't care the politics. I was watching Chris Mathews this evening and he used a Sat. Night Live clip of some comedian doing Cheney while he was talking about torture and Cheney's roll. I'm thinking WTF?! Sat. Night Live during a serious discussion of torture by the Bush regime?
Then, to add insult to injury, he announces that his next guest after the break is going to be "Goldie Hawn actress and political activist."
Were there no scholars on the American administrative branch of gov't available? Ridiculous.
It's like some kinda joke. Can you imagine Uncle Walter or David Brinkley pulling out some shit like that?

I came here via Kristen H. I could not agree with you more. I rarely go to the movies anymore, I will not put money in the pockets of these nitwits. I watch a lot of excellent movies from the past & films with something to say from today. I don't watch TV, but find myself exposed to it in the most unlikely a doctor's office or the secretary of state..WTF.
As long as people watch their movies, we are essentially buying Lindsey Looney her cocaine and thongs.
It's my first time commenting here, hope I don't scare anyone;)

Lou, Agreed, but I'll buy Lindsey a thong if she wants. Oh, and you won't scare anyone around here.
