This is my response to actress Ellen Barkin. She announced on Twitter that as long as Barack Obama is President, the people of the United States belong to him, Twitchy reported.
The actress made her opinion known in an exchange that started when she announced that she voted for Obama to “protect” all of “his” people.
“Yes I vote Pres Obama…to protect his ppl,ALL his ppl.The poor,the middle class,the jobless…the 1′s that need our help..I vote 4 humanity, (sic)” she tweeted.
I cannot for the life me begin to understand what makes people like her think that way. Another way we should respond to people like this is to let your local NBC affiliates know that you will no longer watch (even if you don't anyway) “The New Normal,” a new NBC series. Let them know you will not be watching there station at all because of her comments. Let their sponsors (the local businesses that advertize with them) know that you will not do business with them because they advertize on their network. Tell your local restaurant, hardware, grocery story etc. , etc. that you will no longer do business with them because they advertize with them. Send out your own tweet's asking everyone to boycott their network because of her (or anyone else you find offensive) statements. There is not much we can do about what people say, but we can hurt those that employ them. And we can hurt those that advertize with them. We hurt them the most when we hit them in the pocket.
