    Ok, so, here's the thing.

    If YOU were a Hollywood Celebrity, and you wanted to help, and you were approached by Habitat for Humanity, and they said to you that publicity associated with you being involved would help bring awareness and along with that additional dollars to a worthy cause, and it would also enhance your own career... What would be your motivation for helping this cause?

    Would it be because you wanted to help bring the positive attention to the worthy cause?

    Or would it be because you wanted to enhance your career?

    Are celebrities really that different than us? Really?

    It took one summer in the laborers union to learn to hate every single aspect of the construction industry. I hate everything about that evil job.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    THAT'S the funny part, "progressivism" in action. Shoddy for show work.
    Uhh what on earth does the political ideology of the people who built the house have to do with anything? Habitat for Humanity is a CHARITY.

    I can't. This is important.

    I'd invest my time like I do now, with charities that actually accomplish a task. I give every year to a seeing eye dog training foundation. I know they get the job done, I know money helps people.

    If I ever sell a screenplay or two, and make my break into Hollywood, you won't see me out making a big about a charity unless I KNOW they are doing something that actually works, not just for feel good camera moments and some good publicity.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah, but this particular site was a high visibility Jimmy Carter and other Hollywood Lib affair.

    Habitat for Humanity has quite a long history. There is this one project that appears to have problems. So, I am just wondering if perhaps there is evidence that Habitat is a complete fraud and that these celebs ought to have known about it.

    And again I ask, this has WHAT to do with their political ideology? Are you asserting that conservatives are naturally better at masonry than liberals?

    Yay! Here we have another chance for partisan hacks to ascribe a political ideology that they don't agree with to something that really has nothing to do with it. You didn't disappoint!
