Django Unchained and Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio says he is planning to take a significant break from filming and concentrate on his environmental campaigning. In an interview with Germany´s mass circulation daily Bild, the 38-year-old American actor said: "I am a bit drained. I´m now going to take a long, long break. I´ve done three films in two years and I´m just worn out.´´ "I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment,
How full of yourself must you be to believe that your actions will impact the Earth´s atmosphere. Only a Hollywood airhead, a liberal politician, a televangelist, or a college professor would ever think in those terms.
Proof #112,456,812 that lie-berals are missing that large part of their brains that comprehend logic, reason or facts.
Without that part of their brains, lie-berals are only capable of basing anything on feelings (whoa, whoa, whoa, feelings...).
Lets see, a guy with no education in science or ecology, who has made his career off of memorizing other people´s words and saying them with a pretty face, is going to fly around the world is a big jet airliner that pumps out tons of pollution, and convince the world that it´s a bad thing to pollute -- because it feels that way to him.
Yeah, lie-berals are a really illogical and stupid lot!!!
I bet he doesn´t even realize his "...fly around the world to help the environment.." was a ridiculous statement. If he truly wants to improve it, walk, take a slow boat - but fly? And he made three whole movies in 2 years. How many weeks work was that - a few months maybe? He´s so out of touch with reality.
His Save the Planet Once Again tour will surely be met in exotic locales by Mooch and Barack, Bill & Hill, Al with a new Tip, and the Kardashians. Rain forests, deserts, tropical islands and remote ruins will be rendezvous sites, but only if Obamas can book 200 to 300 rooms for the WH entourage. Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Bob Schieffer will breathlessly report on the Obamas commitment to making our world better for future children. No mention will be made of the expense and rising debt left to future generations.
Really? Isn´t this the same guy who wanted to celebrate New Year´s Eve twice? He and his celebrity buddies and beauties left Australia on a chartered 747 to be in Vegas to party on for a second New Years! http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-12-31/celebrities-touchdown-in-canberra-for-nye/4448410
It sounds like he had to fly back to Australia to keep working???
But you guys, acting is so hard! I mean, it´s like, you know, the hardest job ever! I need a break and because I have such an over-inflated opinion of myself, I will tell the rest of you how to live (while I bask in the luxury of my many mansions, traveling to them in my private jet, because I can). Eat cake.
I have a hard time keeping all the latest generation of H´weird "leading men" separate in my mind. For one thing, they all seem so metro- and goofy. So which one is DiCrapio? the wussy short one, or the doofus short one with the funny religion or any of the ones that suck up to BO?
DUBAI - Iran is moving ahead with testing more efficient uranium enrichment technology, a spokesman for its atomic energy agency said on Saturday, in news that may concern world powers who last month agreed a deal to curb Tehran´s atomic activities. Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying that initial testing on a new generation of more sophisticated centrifuges had been completed, underlining Iran´s determination to keep refining uranium (snip) Some experts believe the IR-2m can enrich uranium 2-3 times faster than the IR-1.
OSLO - Scientists have produced hydrogen by accelerating a natural process found in rocks deep below the Earth´s surface, a short-cut that may herald the wider use of what is a clean fuel, a study showed on Sunday. Used in rockets and in battery-like fuel cells, hydrogen is being widely researched as a non-polluting fuel, but its use is so far hampered by high costs. A few hydrogen vehicles are already on the roads, such as the Honda FXC Clarity and Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, and more are planned. Researchers in France said aluminum oxide speeded up a process by which hydrogen
The Obama administration quietly finalized the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a provision in Obamacare that will cost nearly $60 billion over the next five years and raise health care premiums by 3 percent. The final rule, published on Nov. 27, imposes a fee beginning in 2014 for health insurers with premium revenues over $25 million per year. The annual tax is levied for “United States health risks,” and is hidden from consumers since it is directly assessed on health insurance companies. David R. Burton, a senior fellow in economic policy at the Heritage Foundation, said
Three puppies were rescued from the Muslim Brotherhood before they were used as "puppy bombs" at a protest in Tahrir Square two weeks ago. The group planned to dip the dogs in gasoline and set them on fire and using them against their opponents. Robyn Urman, a pet rescuer in New Jersey with Pet ResQ Inc, was contacted by Mervat Said, an animal rescuer in Egypt, about puppies Cleopatra, Cairo, and Egypt. This is not the first time this has happened, and not all the dogs were rescued. Now Urman´s group is trying to find a loving home for the dogs. Cleo
Environmentalists have galvanized behind a movement to resurrect wolf populations in rural America. Public support, particularly from urban regions, appears to favor the idea of returning this iconic symbol of the wilderness to America’s rural landscapes. (snip)In Catron County, New Mexico, aggressive Mexican gray wolves are terrorizing residents. Here wolves are killing pets in front yards in broad daylight, and forcing parents to stand guard when children play outside. The threat has become so ominous the local school district has decided to place wolf shelters (kid cages) at school bus stops to protect school children from wolves while they wait
Sergei Lavrov said samples taken from the scene of the August 21 attack, which killed nearly 1,500 people and sparked a diplomatic crisis that saw the US face off with Russia over military intervention, matched those of an earlier incident in Aleppo in March. “Russia, at the request of the Syrian government, investigated [the March 19 incident] and the results of this investigation are broadly available to the Security Council and the public. "The main conclusion is the type of sarin used in that incident was homemade, and we also have evidence that the type of sarin used on Aug.21st
A mentally challenged Florida man who had saved up for months to purchase a copy of "Grand Theft Auto V" was robbed of the video game as he left a GameStop store this week, police report. After buying the game Tuesday afternoon, Rohan Dawkins was approached in a Delray Beach parking lot by a couple who pulled up in a car. After asking Dawkins for the time, Tommy Davis, 27, grabbed the bag containing the best-selling game, which was released this week. When Dawkins sought to retrieve the item, Adele Jones, 25, allegedly kicked and punched the 21-year-old Dawkins, according to
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
