Celebrities: Shut Up and Act

Is it time for Hollywood to get back to the business of make believe. Should we let celebrities do what they do best: be fake in a realistic way?

Unfortunately, American culture has devolved to the point where we celebrate narcissists and their pet concerns at the expense of the issues that affect everyday Americans, such as energy prices, deficit and debt. Col. Allen B. West finds celebrity excess at its worse in the debate over gun violence, especially with regards to the Newton, Connecticut, tragedy. H/T PJTV
