The Bourne Stupidity
We hear that this, that, or the other Hollywood actor is supposedly quite intelligent, situationally and socially aware, and we are forced to wonder, based on some of a particular actor's questionable on and off screen activities and behaviors, if that could possibly be true. Such is the current case of Matt Damon who is purportedly one of the smartest actors in Hollywood. Agreed, the intelligence bar is necessarily low there so expectations cannot be too much; which might explain why the cinematic genius of Good Will Hunting has allowed himself to become a useful idiot for foreign interests.
Matt Damon's latest film, Promised Land, isn't just your latest Hollywood flick attempting to demonize American oil companies, but perhaps the first one to do so being financed by foreign oil interests who stand to lose big if the geometric progression of American oil production continues. If Damon's treacherous, even treasonous, message is rejected in this country, his film's Persian Gulf money-men stand to lose big. Call it a matter of them putting their money where their trough bleeds. Damon, of course, will have his tremendous payday regardless, at the very real expense of his fellow citizens and all his disappointed Persian Gulf pals .
As the government announced in the past few days, America, for the first time in decades, is looking at being energy independent due to the hugely increased, North American oil and gas production resulting from the technological breakthrough known as fracking. I won't go into the details here, but fracking involves the forced injection of water and chemicals into deep geological formations that causes those heretofore impenetrable reservoirs of fossil fuels to give up their petrochemical treasures and allow them to be harvested into the fuel tanks of our vehicles and the giant engines of industry which drive the commerce of this nation.
The ill-informed but supposedly brilliant Matt Damon is not able to factor those truths into his Big-Hollywood, liberal mindset. He is apparently incapable of grasping these basic physics of oil and gas production which lead to huge changes in the geo-commercial and thus geo-political realities of this world. At a time when America finds herself engaged in a very real battle for her economic survival, Matt Damon has freely chosen to be the spokesman for her enemies. So be it. I have freely chosen to never again spend a single dime on anything with which this liberal zealot is associated. National charities, keep this in mind as there are millions like me.
Hollywood needs to produce just one more film in the Bourne series, chronicling the inept moves of their misguided, useful idiot of a hero. Call it The Bourne Stupidity.
Now that one I might watch...
