Christmas Reflections: 2016
What a Christmas weekend!
I saw one movie (Passengers) that I thought would be fantastic, but it turned out to be (in my husband’s words) the most expensive chick flick ever made. I saw another movie (Rouge One) that I thought would be bad, but, in my husband’s words, “compared to Passengers it was Oscar worthy.”
As you can see, I didn’t talk much this weekend.
But I DID listen…to bits of news…like Carrie Fisher having a heart attack on a flight from L.A. to London, a flight which takes a good 12 hours and cost around a thousand dollars. Reports from passengers, who just couldn’t wait to get out the news. was that Carrie stopped breathing for ten minutes, but so far, no news of death. We are all waiting for the news of her passing and then tonight we heard that George Michaels, the heart throb of the music world until we all found out he was gay…the singer whose, “Next Christmas, I’ll give it to someone special” died at 53. (move over Bing.)
(A title that works well for all those presents you give that nobody really wants.)
What do they have in common? Cocaine. Robin Williams was a big cocaine user. Cocaine is the favorite drug of the rich and famous, and it’s not really good on the old ticker. But they all seem to love it…including a very famous President who says he used to do it too.
I guess when your rich, you feel…invincible.
And speaking of the rich and famous–Prince Charles and the Pope ended up delivering the same message this Christmas, which was: Accept the refugees. Prince Charles even went so far as to ask people to think of Mohammed as WELL as Jesus this Christmas.
To say that is confusing is like saying that the Atlantic is really the same ocean as the Pacific.
Clearly Prince Charlie was dropped on the castle steps when he was a wee lad. I would love it if he would just put a prayer rug at the bottom of a Christmas tree and pray.
Add to that, it was also reported that the Queen did not celebrate her usual Christmas.
So, she’s 90, Tony Bennett is 90, but nobody knows how old Kissinger is. (I bet Jesus would know.)
Prince Charles as King?
Let’s not spoil our holidays, shall we?
But, back to Christmas: This year the rumor has been used by the Pope AND all the liberals still walking upon the earth that Joseph and Mary were running away from persecution to Bethlehem to have the baby: JUST like the Muslims now fleeing from Aleppo.
Gee. Here I always thought they went there because EVERYBODY had to go there to pay taxes.
I wish they’d get their story straight.
And speaking of getting the story straight: Can we get over this Putin is the bogey man crap?
Russia has joined forces with America in the past. WWII for example.
And you have not heard about this, but Putin helped out President George W. Bush. He sent tens of thousands of troops to assist in the Iraq war to fight the Taliban. ( Read: Bush at War.)
Yes, Putin offered his help to Bush, and gave it to fight the terrorists.
And he will help Trump, because he hates those terrorists too.
And I say— let him.
America joining up with Russia to fight ISIS? What’s not to like?
Hey! Maybe Trump can make a deal with Putin to get some of that oil Russia has been drilling for at the North Pole.
If they can join up for that noble cause, NEXT Christmas I’ll give them both something special!
And I have a whole YEAR to think about what that may be.
