Is Hollywood's seemingly.
To me as a conservative commentator so liberal.
I guess I guess it's guilt you know I think they feel guilty that they're doing so well and other people aren't ten.
And I think that's part of it but I think it's -- bringing to nearly a lot of grew up with -- very strong.
Democratic ties and union ties and so they could go back to their their roots I don't really know your politics I don't wanna drag it right this is not fair to you but.
That's -- that's my frustration and I -- I want to put the special Hollywood checkbox.
I'm not IRS form right that says all right you wanted to donate more money.
You can donate your jet he and -- your limousine -- a little more in taxes and you'll you'll be guilt free.
Well on conservative so just so you know that amount if you do that but I want to tell you how you get in trouble -- in Hollywood -- is so I don't know how many -- heard the end but I wanted to keep making good movies it's it's hard to deny us really as well Terry it's great to -- congratulations Paul Ranger -- everywhere.
