Ignorance is everywhere…in fact, it’s the hottest thing going now around the world. So, let’s begin counting up some of the things that in January of 2015, remain a mystery.
—Why they were advertizing the Powerball amount ($550 mil) every hour, and what happens to the money that the government takes from the person who wins… which is well over half….(not including the taxes you pay after the fact) where does it go? To who? To what? Nobody knows.
—If a town that doesn’t have a football team, (The Rams want to move from St. Louis to L.A.) will go ahead and build an empty stadium just so black contractor’s can have a job. Seems to be the case.
–Whose BRIGHT idea it was to tie the international money markets to each other so that if one fell down, everybody else’s did too.
—-If ANYONE will watch the remake of the O.J. Simpson trial on Cable. And WHY?
—If Bernie Sanders really wins the nomination, will he step aside for Hillary?
—-If someone will ask Jeb Bush how he KNOWS that Donald Trump will NOT be President, (He keeps saying it.) because if he does know who the President will be, then the whole process is rigged and Jeb Bush must be part of it.
—Why my friend who works for the Police Department is scared even to tell me what crimes she reported on that day. It’s like she is sworn to secrecy of a secret society and something terrible will happen to her if she even tells me about a traffic accident. And why she doesn’t even think that’s a bit like working in the KGB.
—If the mendacious Hillary will ever tell the truth about anything, and if she is getting Botox.
—How many times I can watch the movie John Wick. (five so far)
—If the reason they keep playing Rocky movies on TV is because nobody is going to see his new one.
—-If Sly is trying to sell his house in Miami, so that he can leave the country so he doesn’t have to pay taxes?
—WHY…it’s okay that Paul Ryan put a bill on Obama’s desk to repeal Obamacare, but when Ted Cruz stood up in the first place to protest it, and NOBODY was there to help him, he was ostracized by every one of them. They all condemned him for doing such a hopeless thing because Obama would veto it. Well…Obama is going to veto Ryan’s bill. WHY is Ryan a big deal and Cruz not?
—How many people are going to die BECAUSE of Obamacare.
—Why we aren’t seeing more of the sewage and dead animals from the great flood of the Mississippi rolling down to New Orleans on our news programs?
If you bake an egg, is it really better than boiling it?
—Nobody Knows, If I can write EXACTLY 450 words.
(I did it.)
–Yesterday the whole world attacked Donald Trump for suggesting that we limit temporarily, Muslims from coming into the country, and today we find out that Ted Cruz has legislation trying to do just that. Also, over 30 governors are refusing to accept Syrians into their states, and Obama is rushing extra border agents down to the border NOW probably to prevent more dangerous ISIS men from coming into the county— So, why is it that only Donald Trump is being ostracized, when everybody else is rushing to do the exact same thing?
–while Obama is claiming that Islam is peaceful, France has closed down three Mosques because they found the Mosques hoarding tons of weapons and ammunition. Why aren’t we doing that here?
–Will Attorney General Loretta the Lynch arrest the rapper “Rick Ross” since he called for the assassination of Donald Trump in a new song entitled “Free Enterprise.”? And when she doesn’t, does that mean that SHE wants Trump to be assassinated? And isn’t that impeachable?
—Is Caitlyn Jenner angry that Angel Merkel beat BARELY beat her out for Time’s person of the year? Will she send her flowers like a good sport? And was she picked to endorse the G-20 elites mass “No borders, New World Order” agenda, thereby paving the way for Hillary to become President? (They hope.)
(On a side note, my friend Petra just got back from Germany and Merkel is NOT popular.)
–since Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from coming into our country during the hostage Crisis, does that make him a Nazi?
–since we are now finding out that the two Muslims that lead the attack in San Bernardino were actually part of a cell operation, and NOBODY had a clue about them, will Obama finally admit that Edward Snowden was right?
The govt itself admits the kind of universal surveillance the FBI Director wants has never stopped a single attack.
—–Do Americans even know that Obama’s idea of using his no-fly list could include them?
[T]he no-fly list is a secret list that uses secret criteria to determine who finds a home on it. So if you link banning guns to the no-fly list, the scenario presented is completely feasible: The government could theoretically add anyone it wants to the no-fly list, even broad categories of people, and thereby prevent them from owning a gun.
—-Is Bill O’Reilly out to get rid of conservative America’s last great hero Ronald Reagan because the Rino’s, for which he works, want to destroy Reagan’s legacy and replace it with the more progressive ideology?
—-If England bans Donald Trump from its shores, do they realize that if Donald Trump becomes President, he might not want to help them out should they be attacked?
—Obama administrations claims that banning all Muslims from America for a while disqualifies anyone who wants to be President, then how about banning Presidents who give nuclear weapons to countries that want to kill us? AND who had a past as a drug addict?
–what happened to the third Muslim killer that everybody reported at San Bernardino on the day of the shooting? Did he just disappear?
—-What happened to the two missing Iraq guys our military was training in Georgia?
—-Since the Freedom of Information act found out that Rahm Emanuel kept that police video quiet until after his election, will Obama get rid of that act?
—-why they are banning Christmas caroling in the United State?
–why can’t I sing like Celine Dion? (I’m trying. It’s not fair.)
–How many of us will eat too much food this month, ANYWAY.
—-and most importantly, why don’t they make fiber optic Christmas Trees anymore?
Which was the main question on the Ladies Christmas luncheon today…tell me if you see one.
I CELEBRATE myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you…
Walt Whitman or Bill Clinton?
Here’s a bit of trivial fun: Bill Clinton gave both Hillary AND Monica Lewinsky copies of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. Clever really. Bill, I’m sure figured it was a lot better than leaving a trace of your old love letters around for some future Presidential scandal. (ha ha ha) No, Bill wanted the ladies to know that he wanted to have sex, but he also wanted them to think that he was in love with them, when he really wasn’t. Bill Clinton in love? I doubt that has ever happened. I don’t recall him ever mentioning “love” in his autobiography. But wait…
I’m off the subject: This is about Walt. (I think.)
Bill really liked Walt, and it’s no wonder. If Bill had lived in Walt’s time, no doubt they would have been lovers. Walt was ‘gay’ but even more than that, he was full of himself..just like Bill.
If you read Leaves of Grass, you truly can feel that Bill and Walt were like two peas in a pod of lust…for themselves. Yes, Bill and Walt, besides being both democrats, had another characteristic that they shared:
The great talent of self-promotion.
The reason any of us remembers Walt is because Walt was a master not only of writing obscene poetry, he was great at promoting himself.
Like Bill, Walt could really sell himself:
From A History of the American People by Paul Johnson:
Whitman first published his central work, Leaves of Grass, in 1855, when it consisted of twelve poems and ninety-five pages. He republished it, with as much fanfare as he could muster, in 1856, with additions, and this process of republications continued until the sixth edition, in 1881, had 293 poems and 382 pages. He reviewed his own poetry often, both anonymously and under pseudonyms, wrote articles about himself and promoted biographies. He planted news-stores. He said: “The public is a thick- skinned beast and you have to keep whacking away on its hide to let it know you’re there.” He was his own iconographer, promoting photos and portraits of himself and editing them. He built up his own biographical archive, a practice followed by Berthold Brecht in the next century. He even designed his own tomb. He was the first American poet to employ free verse on a large scale, as a device for attracting attention, and the first to make a virtue of obscenity, thereby getting himself written about (and prosecuted.) He conned Emerson into writing him a letter and then published it to boost himself. He described his own body as “perfect” a theme taken up by his votaries, who compared him to Christ: actually he was an ungainly youth who became an ugly old men. He got a letter from Tennyson but let it be known that it was so fulsome in his praise that modesty forbade him to publish it. He wrote a sixty-four page promotional pamphlet to sell his third edition but did not acknowledge authorship till twenty-three years later. As visitors like Henry Thoreau discovered, he was not only eager to talk about himself but reluctant to have the conversation stray from the subject for long.
The first edition of Leaves of Grass sold only ten copies and Whitman had to give the rest away. But by the end of his life he was already a cult figure on both sides of the Atlantic, and his fame, and the interest in his work and personality, have continued to increase.
TELL me that doesn’t sound like Bill Clinton. Yes, I can just see old Bill now, reciting Walt Whitman to Monica:
Undrape! you are not guilty to me, nor stale nor discarded,
I see through the broadcloth and gingham whether or no,
And am around, tenacious, acquisitive, tireless, and cannot be shaken away.
Houses and rooms are full of perfumes, the shelves are crowded with perfumes,
I breathe the fragrance myself and know it and like it,
The distillation would intoxicate me also, but I shall not let it.
The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless,
It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it,
I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked,
I am mad for it to be in contact with me.
You have to wonder….Bill figured he could seduce just about any woman with Leaves of Grass…
We know Monika read it, but Hillary? She probably gave her copy to Huma.
I have just gotten home from my yearly Thanksgiving dinner at my son’s house. It was just the four of us, my husband and I, plus my son and his girlfriend, plus one, my old friend Pattie. Pattie has had a rough time the last few winters. She has lost her husband, then her mother, then her father….nobody should be alone on the Holidays. I pretty much insisted that she come to our dinner, which was much like trying to get a squirrel to take a bath. But she gave in.
Everything was going well, until, my son, trying to pick the right moment, told us all that his whole company had been laid off, even his boss. He had maybe one more week’s paycheck and then he would be back to being unemployed. Luckily, he already has a job interview lined up, but nothing is ever sure in this world. It’s a GM dealership, one of the biggest in North County (Where the famous Ferguson resides.) and it was only a matter of time before it closed. It’s bad timing because he was just starting to get back on his feet, and we all agreed at dinner, best not talk about it.
Everyone tried to be cheerful, but it’s never easy, when the news is filled with stress and worry.
As we drove down the street coming back home, the streets were full of parked cars, families visiting, eating…and I wondered to myself, how many other families had gotten bad news? I have noticed that my one neighbors, who always have their Christmas manger scene out first, are not at home much anymore. Their house was dark. It’s a good white family. (Sorry, I am counting the whites from now on.) Three kids, two grandkids. He had told me recently that sometimes he has had to work three jobs, one as far away as Texas. Yes, he drives to Texas to keep the family afloat. He would drive home on the weekends.
This is starting to be the norm in many parts of America. But the news is always, “HEY! The economy is doing good!”
Now, they just lie.
Pattie and I, were watching reruns of the Thanksgiving Parade, and stated talking. We have known each other since high school, and we started talking about how many businesses have been lost in St. Louis in our lifetime. The whole city has changed. Like the once great city of Detroit, the businesses here, have been destroyed, by unions, by globalism, by greed and corrupt politicians.
What’s left in jobs? Government jobs. Health care jobs. “Service” jobs. That’s about it.
On our way home, I didn’t even recognized some of the old neighborhoods. All changed. Not for the better either.
Getting home is always good after a big Turkey dinner. After getting the dogs out, I went and turned on our Christmas lights out in the front of the house, I didn’t really want to write, because the future, not only for our family, but for the whole country looks bleak. And what makes it especially hard to take, is it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, our economy is destroyed pretty much for all but those who are lucky enough to have the few good jobs, but more than that, our spirit is broken.
As I turn on the TV, FOX was doing a PR piece on the Bush Family. The nation is tired of the Bushes, and I thought, OH good god. They had our lives, as did the Clinton’s, and they did…nothing. Nothing. I really didn’t like Daddy Bush, I grew to be really disappointed in George W., and Jeb…stop it. Jeb isn’t going to get my son a job. He isn’t going to help us in any way. He will help, the Hispanics.
I’m starting to hate all of them. The Bushes think that just because none of the men were horn dogs in office, America should want them.
Wrong. We remember. Sorry Brit Hume, I can turn you off.
Once upon a time, even in my life, if a person worked hard, and was decent, and honest, he had a chance at the American dream….and the globalists (Clinton’s AND Bushes) have taken it away.
So, I get mad. Then I get sad. When I get sad, I read.
I went into my old closet full of books to look for some bit of history, and I found a book I really didn’t even know I had…it was even autographed. Who knows where I got it? Some book sale somewhere.
It was a book released in 2000, by Donald Trump:
The America We Deserve
Yes…guess what? Donald Trump has been wanting to run for the Presidency since 2000. Who knew?
So, I turned off the almost nauseating propaganda piece on the Bush Dynasty, being broadcasted to the whole nation on Thanksgiving Night, for god’s sake, (We’ll probably get the rerun on Christmas Day) and I picked up the book, and read a few pages.
I wanted to share with you an excerpt from The American We Deserve.(Page 27)
It’s time to look around and its tie for all of us who care about the American Dream to change the political buzz from happy talk to straight talk. Here’s the bottom line: If a policy threatens the American Dream, we need to go after it.
I’m going to shoot straight about terrorism and about the foreign threat. I’m going to talk plain about the economy and how to keep the system solid at the core. If we do that, then we can ride out any storm. I’m also going to talk about Social Security. I’m lucky enough not to have to worry about getting A Social Security check, but most American do and they’re right to be worried about their futures.
And he goes on about the kids, and ends the chapter with this:
I’m not worried about whether or not the intellectual/journalist /political establishment thinks I’ve got the stuff to talk about saving the American Dream. I believe in the American Dream. My business experience shows me that it works, and I want to do everything possible to see that regular Americans can enjoy the same opportunity for success and security that I have had. That means the American Dream unencumbered by bureaucratic ineptitude, government regulation, confiscatory tax politics, racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation.
We must all have equal access to the American Dream. It’s a dream we deserve and a dream worth fighting for.
And he wrote this in 2000.
I SWEAR to you, I had no idea that I had this in my closet. But I really needed something tonight to keep me from the hopelessness of what seems an ever ending series of political disasters making everyone’s life miserable. I happen to think God just plopped that book in front of me, as a sign, not to lose hope.
I can’t say, after seeing the entranced and powerful people coming at to destroy Trump, that even if elected, he would be able to pull of the miracle of trying to undo the damage that the Bushes, the Clinton’s and the Obama’s have done.
But…like tonight, I know deep in my heart the only answer is to have hope.
There ARE good people in the world.
And once in a while, miracles do happen. Sometimes in history, great men do make a difference.
Donald, I’m all in.
If a man can keep a dream that long, then he is truly, the real thing.
I only pray that the nation can hold on long enough to survive, until he can get into office.
Can Donald make America great again?
He is the ONLY one who wants to do it for us. For the Americans.
And we all know, who we are.
–Can we just divide the country up? Mark Levine tonight is suggesting the United States divide into two parts: One for patriotic Americans, and one for the loonies. My mother had this idea in her last days on the planet….she thought that we should give the East and West Coast to the liberals, and the good people would get the middle of the country. This was around the year 2000.
“We’d have the bread basket” she said. Nobody Wonders how many Americans right now are thinking this is a good idea…they could keep their progressive Unicorn world, and as Mark said, Donald Trump could build us a big wall to keep them all out.
–If Jeb Bush thinks that putting on VERY expensive suits and reading from a teleprompter, and running his ads every hour on FOX is going to get him back in the race. Oh…he also magically got a very dark tan…in one day. Is Jeb’s big Hollywood makeover going to help?
—-If the new sitcom Minority Report is going to miss me. In the very first scene that I watched tonight, the black lady cop showed DASH (one of the telepathic psycho) a picture of the hand of the Statue of Liberty.
And when Dash said he didn’t know what that was…she said it was the Statue of Liberty and they were celebrating Amnesty Day…(remember, this program is in the future) the day where 10 million immigrants were granted citizenship.
“Oh…that’s it.” I said. I looked at my husband. We not only turned the channel, we erased all future recordings. Nobody Wonders how many other American did the same thing, but evidently a lot…because it’s being canceled.
—-Have you noticed that liberal politicians, actors, famous singers, etc, ALWAYS criticize America when they are OUT of the country? There’s a legal reason for that…they can’t be sued.
—-Why every late night comedian has to attack Bobby Jindal with nasty jokes when he so graciously dropped out of the race. Would they do that to a democrat?
—-Why the huge Mosque I passed today NEVER has any cars in the parking lot…where are all these ‘religious’ people?
—Why Obama is trotting all over the world again. Was it just an excuse to ride in Air Force One and make all the other countries bow to him?
—-If ANYBODY believed that Charlie Sheen did NOT knowingly give lots of women AIDS?
–If dog treats from China have crack in them, because my dogs act like addicts when it comes to certain ones.
–How I found a video of that kid and his father that I talked about today…but here it is…and you have to wonder: Seriously?
Pat Buchanan, has a great knack for putting into words, the obvious. In his last opinion piece he explains why many people are attracted to Trump:
When Trump says, “We never win anymore,” that resonates to these folks. They see 21st-century America as a nation that cannot win its wars, or secure its borders, or build an infrastructure of roads, bridges, rails and airports to match those rising in other countries.
Moreover, the spirit of revolt in the GOP, indeed, in both parties today, is not confined to the USA. It is roiling Europe. In Britain, France, Spain, Italy and Belgium, nationalism is tearing at the seams of nations. Secession from the EU appears to be an idea whose time is coming.
Right. Right. We see the rest of the world taking us over, while the Western Elite political families are busy making deals for their corporate friends, and their own families to stay in power…meanwhile they are building billionaire bunkers for the Holocaust they expect to happen from ‘climate change” but more than likely a Nuclear Iran.
Right now, most American would have to agree with Vladimir Putin who just said THIS about the United States:
“I think some of our partners simply have mush for brains, they do not have a clear understanding of what really happens in the country and what goals they are seeking to achieve.”
Mush. Putin masterfully explains Obama in one word.
Are you ready for the first democratic debate tonight?
I will, FORCE myself to watch it…just to let you know, the bloopers.
While all the black people are worried about those racist ‘whites’, Nobody Predicts that some day, they will long for the good old days when honky’s walked around and gave them jobs, and paid for their cell phones, and welfare:
This from the Guardian:
The United States is now the world’s second largest Spanish-speaking country after Mexico, according to a new study published by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes.
The report says there are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the US plus a further 11.6 million who are bilingual, mainly the children of Spanish-speaking immigrants. This puts the US ahead of Colombia (48 million) and Spain (46 million) and second only to Mexico (121 million).
Among the sources cited in the report is the US Census Office which estimates that the US will have 138 million Spanish speakers by 2050, making it the biggest Spanish-speaking nation on Earth, with Spanish the mother tongue of almost a third of its citizens.
Yes, our ‘white’ leaders (And Obama) have given you a new nation America, and it will be Spanish! Smile!
The Supreme Court just said it’s okay for ANYBODY to vote in America’s election. Welcome to the New World Order.
Now, go back to your local TV News program and find out HOW those convicts used ordinary pepper to lead the dogs off their scent.
This is so typical. In this world there are SO many artists as talented as U2 and yet, as Joni Mitchell once said in a song, people pass them by. In a song called “He Played Real Good for Free” written long ago, Joni sang about this:
“Nobody stopped to hear him, though he played so sweet and high
They knew he had never been on their TV, so they passed his music by
I meant to go over and ask for a song, maybe put on a harmony.
But the one man band, by the quick lunch stand, he played real good for free”
Notice how without their great PA system U2 sounds much like any other band on the street…it was only until everybody KNEW who they were, that they came over to listen.
So, support your favorite local band. Not all of them can be famous, but they are a lot cheaper to listen to.
….If I start out the weekend with an uplifting video going around the internet right now. A father teaching his young son, to value his country.
I love it!
Chris Pratt, the hottest actor in Hollywood now due to the successful “Guardians of the Galaxy”…has just sent his popularity soaring into the Stars!
He truly IS a Starlord!
Right now, in the living room, my husband is recording the original Ten Commandments. It was the first movie that I ever saw on the big screen. I was almost five, and I remember being about three rows from the front in what seemed to me, to be the biggest theater in the world. The fact was, back then, Naples, FL, had less than 8,000 people and it was the only movie theater in town.
It was probably pretty small.
My older brother went with me of course, and I have no idea where my parents were….they figured my older brother could watch me. His way of watching was to sit me in the front row, and then, he would take off to find a seat next to the nearest pretty girl he could find. They had already seen it, and so, being short of money, they just bought tickets for their children. They sat outside in the parking lot waiting for us. Or so my mother said.
I won’t tell you the impact that movie made upon my heart— my soul. Upon seeing Charles Heston part the Red Sea, I was more than overwhelmed. I believed in God, and Moses…and that seed is still there. The power of that movie affected the rest of my life.
As for the church…that’s another blog.
I suppose, because I saw the Ten Commandments FIRST, it really is the reason why I have always judged churches with skeptical reverence. When I was told in Sunday school that you have to go though Jesus to even GET to God, I thought…well heck, that’s not what Moses said.
Laugh if you want, but in my mind, it was that simple. Maybe I’m a Jew, but don’t know it. (ha)
Because I happen to believe that whatever religion is pushed into the young malleable mind will stay there forever—I could have told George W. Bush that trying to change the Muslims into a democracy is a crazy idea. Christianity is based upon the individual seeking his own course. Islam, is obey, or die. I don’t know what they tell their five year old— but its enough to make them believe that if they kill infidels on earth, it’s a good thing. Not exactly the “Turn the other cheek” message.
Muhammad, came AFTER Jesus. From what I can tell about what I’ve read about Muhammad…he figured out that if Jesus could claim that Gabriel had come down and told him he was special, why not try it? He stole the line of “Gabriel the angel has come to me..and I am god’s true son.” —but unlike Jesus, he was just another neighborhood crime lord.
Okay, I wasn’t there, and it’s more complicated that and—- I’m off subject
Yesterday, on Easter, my husband and I watched Ben-Hur, with Charles Heston. You can watch all the movies made since Ben-Hur, that describe Jesus’ life, but none of them even come close. There are many reasons for this…for instance in Ben- Hur, they never ever show Jesus’ face.
You don’t even see Jesus talk. The movie is about faith. And tyranny. And the cruelty of man. You must paint your own faith into that story. It’s brilliant, and respectful, and really the best way to present Jesus. But, that’s just my opinion. The power of the human imagination is always more powerful than someone’s artistic idea.
And I remember thinking how lovingly the old people in the movie were revered, and treasured. Wouldn’t it be nice if in our culture of today, old people were treated with more kindness?
Watching Ben-Hur today, reminded me how Charles Heston really has played such a big part in my own life, my own morality. First the Ten Commandments. And then years later, when I was first starting to awake to the madness of Bill Clinton’s corruptible presidency, I heard Charles Heston on the radio, one day while I was driving to St. .Charles, MO. IT was …a “I’ve been hit by lighting” moment.
All the pain that I have been feeling about my country changing, disappearing, right before my eyes, came out in his words. I could not stop crying. The truth of his words cut so deeply into my heart, it wasn’t too much later that I started blogging. OMG…here’s a man who just blurted out the truth! The truth we are all told is not happening. I was so moved, I wrote him a letter.
(And yes, he answered back.)
The truth is, Charles Heston was more than a magnificent actor, he was a hero of a man. Every movie he picked to do, represented truths he wanted to convey.
( Unlike the movie stars of today making big money at films where they kill with guns every other scene and play heroes…and then come out and say…”Nobody should own or SHOOT a gun. Hey, it’s just a movie.”
Charles Heston back when Clinton was President, was one of the few to speak out against the madness of the left;
In a 1997 speech called Fighting the Culture War in America, Heston rhetorically deplored a culture war he said was being conducted by a generation of media people, educators, entertainers, and politicians against:
...the God fearing, law-abiding, Caucasian, middle-class Protestant – or even worse, evangelical Christian, Midwestern or Southern – or even worse, rural, apparently straight – or even worse, admitted heterosexuals, gun-owning – or even worse, NRA-card-carrying, average working stiff – or even worse, male working stiff – because, not only don’t you count, you are a down-right obstacle to social progress. Your voice deserves a lower decibel level, your opinion is less enlightened, your media access is insignificant; and frankly, mister, you need to wake up, wise up, and learn a little something from your new America; and until you do, would you mind shutting up?
He went on:
The Constitution was handed down to guide us by a bunch of wise old dead white guys who invented our country! Now some flinch when I say that. Why! It’s true-they were white guys! So were most of the guys that died in Lincoln‘s name opposing slavery in the 1860s. So why should I be ashamed of white guys? Why is “Hispanic Pride” or “Black Pride” a good thing, while “White Pride” conjures shaven heads and white hoods? Why was the Million Man March on Washington celebrated by many as progress, while the Promise Keepers March on Washington was greeted with suspicion and ridicule? I’ll tell you why: Cultural warfare!
And his speech on the radio that day, made me feel, that I was not alone. I cried when I heard him speak the truth on the radio.
He never did it again.
If only he had……..
What we are learning then, and now, is that Jesus came at a time in history, when the poor men were beaten down by an all too powerful Roman empire. Jesus gave the world sanctuary. He gave them hope. Whether you think he is the son of God or not, he gave the world…a sensible way to deal with tyranny. A way to react to the madness–a way back to God.
It was a message I needed to hear again today, in this world where we have a president who remains silent at the slaughter of Christians and Jews happening again, all over the world.
And if I ever have a grandchild, the very first movie I am sitting with them to see…
Can you guess?
I SORT of watched the Oscars last night. Whenever I got insulted, I would change the channel, which happened a lot.
In the past years I have written about how to pick the winners at the Oscars: Just pick the movie that expresses the liberal causes, and that‘s your winner. It’s easy. Was the movie about the sufferings of :gay? women? Muslims? blacks?
OSCAR! Add a few devastating illness and you have some variety.
It works every time. The good news is these Hollywood actors have become the loudest mouthpieces for the democratic party, and anybody who doesn’t tow the line of liberal feel good causes are…trashed. And most of these movie stars have big mouths.
So, guess what? America stopped going to their movies as payback. You want to make fun of my conservatives values? Then I don’t have to go see your movies. It must bother them because Sean Penn made a comment about how “Movies don’t even have to make money, it’s all about the ‘art’.
And last year the movie industry lost BIG time. The movie that made half the profits, over $350 million and counting, was a movie about a true American Hero…a soldier.
Damn. What can you do when the nation STILL insists on those old fashion values? What every good marketing agent will do: you have to throw a few bones to the paying crowd.
They gave “Sniper” a nomination so those idiotic morons in the fly over states would tune into the Oscars and learn something. Maybe even go SEE those other movies and learn how wicked they are. Like how homosexuals want to kill themselves when teenagers because they feel “different.” I think last year more soldiers killed themselves than homosexuals…but they don’t care. They have gays in underwear.
“Sniper” won nothing.
And then there was Oprah. The TITANIC Oprah, who made Chris Pine cry with the emotion of how black people should be released from jail…and how racism is rampart in our society.
When “glory” came on, being a thinking human being, with still the right to choose, we flipped the channel to “The Walking Dead” only to witness…two men kissing and loving each other, and my husband and I turned and looked at each other and said, “Oh no…NOT the Talking Dead too.”
STOP IT!! This was a plan to get us to turn BACK to the OSCARS! Ahhhhhhh…….
Lady Gaga, go figure, did a fine performance of songs from the “Sound of Music” The host was rather, boring. And so, I can see why he had to come out in his underwear.
“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation,” said Arquette. “We have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”
Somebody tell Hillary. Evidently, she has always paid women 72 cents to the men’s dollar.
During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.
There wasn’t ONE movie besides Sniper that I would pay money to see. And at the end, the director of the year, a Mexican, made a plea for us to welcome with open arms all his Mexicans neighbors who deserve to be Americans:
Director Inarritu said he prays his native country finds “a government we deserve” and that immigrants to the U.S. “can be treated with the same dignity and the respect of the ones who came before and (built) this incredible immigrant nation.”
Wait. Now MEXICANS built this nations? Move over Muslims.
Don’t they know…that it was the WOMEN who built this nation! Every time I look at the Empire State Building I remind myself that it was built by… very muscular women, who claimed to be men.
Back then, nobody would have hired them if they had said they were female.
Clearly, they have many more movies to make. And I wonder, when they make this movie about how Mexican, Muslims and women built America, they will mention the fact that they were all actually gay?
I think I’m on to something here. Oscar worthy.
Just in case you missed this, Obama is saying that for women, going out your front door is more dangerous than driving your car. If you have not been raped or beaten…YOU WILL be in your lifetime.
The war on men…must go forth! Onward! Women! BEWARE of those evil men, standing beside you!
“Rape! Murder! It’s just a shot away…it’s just a shot away!”….yeah, yeah…yeah. Good thing Mick Jagger warned us.
Let me get this straight: They want women in the workforce, but they want to scare them SO much, they only hang out in groups, stay home and go nowhere— carry guns…wait.
They don’t want them to carry guns right? So, in order to stop all this pillage, Obama just wants men to stop raping and beating women. Isn’t that nice of him?
They just want those dirty, evil, men to stop raping and beating, and saying things like, “I love you.”
“I love you” to Obama, is just one step away from a rape.
We had the “war on poverty, ” the “war on blacks” the “war on drugs” and now, for your entertainment and Hillary’s only hope for a viable voting block:
We are now starting
THE WAR ON WOMEN!
If I were you guys, I wouldn’t put up with this. Time to beat up on some politicians….with your choicest words. And by the way, go ahead and cuss like a sailor.
Obama only understands the Chicago vernacular.
Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney are meeting today— who’s to bet both these guys are trying to figure out a plan how to defeat men like Bobby Jindal from running for President?
Bobby is articulate: He is doing a good job running Louisiana— he’s all American. I would defiantly go to the polls to vote for him. If the names on the ticket were Bush or Romney VS Hillary…I’m not sure if I would. It depends on if I felt like doing my nails instead.
Bobby states what all republican candidates should be saying now. Any immigrant that comes into a Western country should assimilate. He stated that all over Europe there were zones where Muslims kept to themselves and the people of the country stayed away, including the police.
By saying this, Bobby upset the very ‘sensitive’ French mayor of Paris (a woman) when he talked about “No go Zones.”
No wonder Obama keeps throwing dinner parties for the French.
So, Congratulations Mr. Jindal! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. Now, run for President, please.
Something tells me in THIS election, it may not be the biggest money spender that wins.
