How many of those on show this year stated they would move out of the US if Trump was elected ?  And how many actually have ???Wacko   But then, it was a lot of new faces with just a few of the old originals appearing.  They come and go so quick, most of them.

That “leaving the country” nonsense was laughable. Why would you abandon your country simply because you didn’t like a duly elected leader? Leaders don’t have the ability to significantly change a country (well not in western democracies anyway) so the reality is that you will likely not notice any difference. I certainly haven’t abandoned plans to visit the place that’s for sure. Counting down the days as we speak!

The other night at the concert for Fire Fight Australia the comedian ,who I have never heard until she raised millions for bush fire aid, had on a T shirt blaming Scott Morrison for something or another, then KD Lang went on about something about insects that perished in the bush fires.

What is it about entertainers, not only here in OZ, but in Hollywood, whose skill sets are acting, singing or cracking jokes, that enables them to offer advice on climate change, politics, veganism or whatever comes to their minds etc, when most likely none went beyond high school and whose knowledge on those subjects are limited by their limited education.

They must have tickets on themselves but because they have audiences , in the case of the Academy awards, millions, they must believe they can be "influencers". If they wish to vote A or B that is their choice, or believe in climate change or are vegans, good luck to them, but do not force it down my throat thank you very much.

Sounds great.  Only place I give a miss is LA.  I was there years ago when it was nice and quiet, by today,s standards, too big now.  The airport is a nightmare.  Cry Same with NY.  Was fun when young .

Agree with LA. Basically a dump IMO. The best part of LA is the Qantas lounge in LAX.
To be fair the airport has improved lengths in recent years. They have tunnels connecting most of the terminals now which makes it much easier to transit. Still hit and miss with inbound immigration though. Could be through in minutes could be through in hours. Pot luck.
I’m just there to fly out. Will go to Disneyland all day then depart late that night.

You know what they say about opinions,,,,,,,,LOL
However, we are all entitled to them as long as they dont hurt others I suppose.
