Big Actors (movie stars) are some of the richest people in the world, and how do they make that money? Acting? The job safer and less hard than being a plumber, yet they get paid monster amounts of money.

Sports stars.. Crying over there small pay checks, yet what they make a year a welder with a much more harmful/dangerous job will not make in there life time.


'Ok doing hardly anything and making monster mounts of money for it... Yeah that be great. But I am against both movie stars and Sports stars making the amount of money they make. Hell if we even cut there pay in half they still be rich and yet we would be able to pay back a countries Debts. So I am for the deduction of sports players, and movie stars pay checks.

That money alone taken out of secularization would slow if not eliminate inflation. Or that money can be used in other ways to aid man kind, like put in the space program, or into health care, schooling, retirement funds, medical research, science research, construction and land scraping project (making more jobs for people) And much much more.

Hell if I was playing a sport I loved to play I be willing to play it on a office workers salary. (its not like there jobs took billions of dollars in schooling to be able to do in the first place.)

So to all greedy selfish sports stars.. You want lots of money get a REAL JOB!

In the end they better hope I do not get in office because that would be one of the first things I do to better are economy.

i really do have to agree with you dark it's bull shit that people that entertain us get us so much money for just that and teachers/janitors get payed liked shit even though there jobs are more important. This is why i don't watch professional sports for this reason due this reason they get 2 million contracts.

Who has the authority to take money away from people because of some personal bias? You sound like a dictator.

Honestly I'm glad you're not in charge because I could see this country collapsing in ten years.

dude it is bull shit that movie starts and "pro stars" get payed all the bs wages for the soul purpose of entertaining us while teachers, fire fighters, police officers etc get payed like shit when there job is much more necessary to our safety and eduction. I don't think we should forcefully take their money away but then agian i do not think a pro star should get a 20 million contract for playing a sport either but that's my opinion.

NO I do not think we should take there money away they keep what they have. But I think a new contract should be made.. Limiting the amount of money they can make. they still be rich with half the money there making. And the money that there not getting anymore can be used to help improve the area.. making life better for everyone.
Even so I still say they should be paid not more than what other people get paid for there real jobs.

I think politicians should make less money... I think they need to be on par and live the lifestyle of the average person in their countries. The government is for the people, not the people for the government.

Digs I agree with you.. And as A person now trying to get into the world of politics. I do my best to see the day the government works for the people and not the people slaving for the government. And I do come from a middle class family in NY!!! One of the worst places wen it comes to taxing the middle classes..

Isn't that something the 'market' should care of? You can only blame the industries for being so successful that they end up paying stars ridiculous amounts of cash to make...more ridiculous amounts of cash. No one can claim absolute authority in telling what professions are useful and which ones aren't. If there wasn't a demand for actors and baseball players, they wouldn't exist.

I think they should make less money simply because no one needs millions of dollars to live. If you have a skill set that's necessary for a society to function, it depends on how accessible the skills are. Honestly, learning to be a police officer is not the hardest thing in the world. Learning tthe intricacies of nuclear engineering is another story.

Second, you can't just lump sport stars and fire fighters in the same group. One is funded by the government, the other isn't. I'm pretty sure you'll be violating some constitutional rights by limiting how much an organization can pay its players when you can't prove they're doing anything legally wrong (because they're not).

Third, if we follow this line of thought, society will eventually stagnate and die. The large majority of people in non-essential professions will quit because it's not worth it. In fact, the "necessary" jobs will probably cut out the police and fire fighters too.

I don't like the situation, but I like it less if some authority starts telling everybody what's important and what isn't.
