Matt Damon: ‘Game is rigged’

Matt Damon rather infamously said in 2011 that he wouldn’t mind if President Barack Obama — whom the actor had supported in 2008 — was a one-term president because he’d rather have a “one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done.” (The comment even earned Damon some flak from the president himself.)

But, he still did his part to give Obama a second term, admitting that he still voted for him in November.

“I assume there will be some Supreme Court appointments in this next term; that alone was reason to vote for him,” Damon told Playboy magazine in its January 2013 issue. “I don’t think I said anything a lot of people weren’t thinking. It’s easier now more than ever in my life to feel the fix is in, the game is rigged and no matter how hard you work to change things, it just doesn’t matter.”

Perhaps we shouldn't be getting worked up over comments

made by an employee of the Establishment's "Hollywood Division"?

Yeah, let's do nothing because Matt Damon says so. Actors, for the most part, are WEAK human beings out of touch with who they really are within themselves as their careers demand they essentially be schizophrenic to be "successful" role-models (more like role moulders).

We know how easy it is for people in the spotlight who speak out against the corruption to get "heart attacks" or to "overdose" and be removed from Earth. Damon's comments simply show he is a coward.

Please answer this: If Matt

Please answer this: If Matt and others don't mind paying more, why don't they? If he donated ninety percent of his salary, then his words have some meaning; otherwise, he's just a blow-hard.

Matt Damon is worse than a Communist.

Matt Damon: "The wealthy are paying less than they paid at any time else, certainly in my lifetime, and probably in the last century," Damon said. "I don't know what we were paying in the roaring 20's; it's criminal that so little is asked of people who are getting so much. I don't mind paying more. I really don't mind paying more taxes. I'd rather pay for taxes than cut 'Reading is Fundamental' or Head Start or some of these programs that are really helping kids. This is the greatest country in the world; is it really that much worse if you pay 6% more in taxes? Give me a break. Look at what you get for it: you get to be American."

You get to be an American... Wow, thanks Matt! You mean unless the covetous horde gets what they unjustly want and force somebody else pay their way in the world, I don't get to be an American anymore?

Hmmm. This guy is a self aware puppet serving the people who rig the game. Obama isn't liberal enough for Matt Damon. If he wanted to give more, there's nothing stopping him.

Give you a break, Matt? I'm never paying to watch your acting

Damon, you can take those pieces of pseudo-silver that someone else paid you to betray your country with, and offer them on the alter of your big government ideal. Who lead you to believe that, "you get to be American", simply by sacrificing to them whatever tax-rate they demand?

I'll be better spending my time and money supporting those who believe that Liberty is worth living and dying for, than propping up your pathetically shallow thinking, and your delusions of government grandeur; that you believe, somehow, define what it means to be preserving our rights in the land of the free!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

'getting so much'

dork in the butt. What nonsense.

What, actually, do those paying 'more' taxes get more of? More services? More police protection? Fairer trials, court dates? Preferred access to the National Parks? Get to skip around TSA lines at the airport? Bypass the highway toll booths? House calls by the DMV? More 'government services' of any kind?

What tangible things do the 'rich' get more of, when they pay more taxes?

More access to political pull is about the only thing.

Stuff it, Matt Damon.

they get more armed guards to

they get more armed guards to step on the peasant's backs.

"the game is rigged

but i will vote for the puppet anyway." Just pure ridiculousness. Supreme court justices are bought and paid for too. Look no further then the dishonourable scalia. Thinking anything less then corruption out of them is stupid.

thanks for voting

against my freedom, matt. guess i'll use what little remains to skip any of your future work.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Matt Damon simply doesn't know any better.

I think he's one of the good guys however. Look at the last few movies he's made such as Green Mile, all the Borne movies and now he's working on a new one about hydrolic fracking.

His movies are educational... I do see him as someone on our team he just may or may not be knowledgeable enough on everything that is going on. It's also likely that he's being extremely careful to not fall into any "conspiracy theory" areas.

Look at what happened to Charlie Sheen for asking a few questions about 9/11? It's an extremely fine line to stay relevant in Hollywood and have a political view that is not the same as the controllers in Hollywood themselves.

The PTB have even managed to somehow marginalize Jesse Ventura. "Word on the street" now is that he's "crazy" which means people won't even tune into the show - which is very professionally done I might add...

It's amazing how sheep hear a label and are automatically herded in a different direction.

Green Zone, not Green Mile

Hey, you had it half right; I'll give you credit for that.

I think many of these Hollywood actors/actresses are hypocrites. They have no problem starring in movies that promote violence and militarism, portraying characters who point and shoot guns at the 'bad guys'. Oh, it's just acting, they say, not real life. But art often imitates reality.

The movie, 'Green Zone' was about exposing Washington's lies about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. Yay for telling the truth. But apparently Damon is unable to 'connect the dots' about King Obama and his global banksters, multinational corporate heads and foreign government leaders who control him and the arthropods in the U.S. Congress.

I'll bet Damon still believes in the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny.

Because the people who read

Playboy do so for the insightful articles...

He says the game is rigged...so why does he keep supporting the corrupt teams?

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Because it's more of a confession...

than an admonition.
