HOLLYWOOD, CA - Actor-turn-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to leave politics behind in favor of joining Quentin Tarantino's World War II epic. Arnold who made this staggering news yesterday had this to say :
"I wish to inform all californians and Americans that I will be stepping down as Governor of California next week. Since I was in office in the late of 2003, people have come to me for help, emailing me about certain issues that they could not agree, issues that are indebatable and it really pisses me off. Never ever question a governor! They should realize by now that I am their superior and superiors decide what and when and how to deal with problems. If they can't follow then they shall be terminated. To add that up, The government is not paying me the amount I am suppose to be getting as a governor. When I was an actor, I received millions, I get to perform stunts and do actions, blowing things up. I thought I could do these things in real life when I am in politics, but I was wrong. I feel like an encaged animal, a prisoner in office. I could not go anywhere. They even restrained me from attending "Around the World in 80 Days" premiere in which I did a cameo with Jackie Chan. It was my movie and I was stuck doing paper-work in a cage.
As all of you may have heard the demise of John Paul II, allow me to share with you a note he sent to me the night before he died.
"Arnold, I am lying on my bed, with tubes around me. My legs are numb, my hands are falling asleep, the people around me are sending votive prayers. I could not get any privacy. The call of prayer echoing from every possible angle. It is the prayer that beckons me to my doom. I cannot withstand that sound of agony anymore. If I shall die tomorrow, then I will gladly do so. "
The point is.... the pope and I suffered the same thing. It was from the people. He suffered and passed away. I suffered but I will not continue to suffer more.
Last week, Quentin Tarantino gave me a call and asked me whether I would join him in his upcoming world war II epic with Bruce and Sly. He was willing to pay me at any price of my call. And I told him "Quentin, Count Me In ".
It was a wise decision for me to join my best buddies Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone and leave this terrible job for good.
Thank you and Farewell
