Re: Taylor Swift is really leaving a carbon footprint!

I see no cogent or coherent explanation for what "damaging the economy" means in terms of Taylor Swift.

 

That was the most absurdly ridiculous statement.

Re: Taylor Swift is really leaving a carbon footprint!

I could care less about TS & her plane. She earned her money & she can spend it. I envy her because I’d give anything to travel by private jet. We travel a lot & commercial planes are just not reliable to get you where you want to go on time. I traveled on a corporate jet when I worked & could leave from our local airport, no lines, always on time & a lot of space.

I do care that she’s a distraction at football games. I love football & the camera tuned in on her is annoying. I do think she’s overly dramatic & I don’t even know if she likes the game. You can see her looking at the camera so a lot seems to be a performance imho

This thread is an example of how things get magnified and run off the tracks here. I actually like Taylor. I am not a rabid Ecologist. I know there is a Kansas City in Kansas. And i respect the right of others to fly their planes anywhere and anytime they want to. I read the article that I quoted. I thought is was harmless celebrity gossip about Taylor and her life, which I can't imagine, so I posted it. And from that I get all these insults and speculation about what kind of person I am, I am jealous, not aware of all the good she does and what my politics are? It is all about intent and mine was not the big, heavy mess it turned into. Peace out.

@cody2 @I am sorry for any mistreatment you received just because you posted. 


@Mindy D Thank you. No biggie. Smiley Happy

Re: Taylor Swift is really leaving a carbon footprint!

Well as so many are fond of saying here, it's a discussion forum so you're going to get opinions. I'd say any suggestion of " mistreatment" here is a real stretch.

 

I've experienced and witnessed mistreatment on these forums for many years and sorry but this isn't that.

Maybe she's hyper.  I wish I had 1/4th of her energy!

@deepwaterdotter Would she need to after jetting around the country doing the damage she does by jetting around just because?  Doesn't that say it all?

 

I amazes me how forgiving people are of celebrities.  Everything from killing to damaging the economy is ok because it's. . . well. . . someone special.  Not just people you know who don't recycle.

People are often "forgiving" of celebrities because we ALL leave a carbon footprint .... and aren't perfect. 

 

You can't compare what someone else does to what you do ... when the lives are completely different.  

 

I think you also need to factor in WHAT ELSE those nasty celebrities do.  So they use a smaller-than-commercial-size private plane to travel here and there. 

 

However, MANY have chartiable foundations that give large amounts of money to very good causes ... I bet you don't do that regularly, do you?

Hyper? She is a 33 year old mega performer in great shape!

@Tinkrbl44 Probably a bigger percentage of my income than an awful lot of them do! And if you don't think they benefit financially from a charitable foundation I am here to tell you they absolutely do.  And where I worked, I saw it.  

 

I feel quite sure of that and also sure you have absolutely no knowledge of what I do are don't do.  All you have is that I don't always agree with YOU so it's all my bad.  And I stand by the fact that celebrities often are excused for bad behavior because they are famous.
