Big Hangover, Movie Review

Now that the election results are old news there seems to be a feeling around the country that resembles one real bad hangover.  The morning after had that feeling like lack of restful sleep, slight or heavy headache from wondering about the present problems of the country and then the future problems, or better still what does this “new face” of America really mean.  Rush Limbaugh(not one of my favorites) said it very well, “hey, wouldn’t you vote for the one candidate that is like Santa Claus and GIVES everything to you or would you vote for the candidate who says, “we will provide jobs for you to work and provide for your family.”  Well the food stamp program has increased considerably over the last four years, the government programs have increased the same.  So, I am going to assume that those 47% of the population Mr. Romney mentioned in his closed meeting, went out and voted for Mr. Ho Ho so they would continue to be taken care of.  The only thing here is that it goes on for 12 months, not one day of the year.  On hangover day I talked to two of my good friends and they had contrasting situations, one is a billionaire and the other one is unemployed, but they were very harmonious in their reaction to the election results.  They both had sleepless nights and woke up with a bad case of where do we go from here.    

It is obvious the new face of America became a real thing and not just a passing fling. Someone wrote that the Big O provided a smooth campaign organization that was made up of Asian, Chicano, Middle Easterner, African American, Native American and Females, that assured him of getting that almighty 47% vote, and truly represented the “new face of America.”  While the Republican ticket had two male caucasians(will they be extinct by the next election or what?) running for the top dog spots and almost assured themselves of not relating to that huge group of “new facers” whether they did or not.  These guys really never had a chance since their corrective measures for the country called for the “new facers” to go back to work and be producers instead of recipients.  It is almost like the country voted like this is some kind of glee club or something close to it.  They did not take into consideration that the national debt went from $2 trillion to $16 trillion in four years.  Yes Mr. O, YOUR four years not the W’s eight years.  So, since I am in the minority and losing ground fast I will say that I did the only thing I could do in a democracy, I VOTED for the candidate of my choice and that was Mr. Mitt Romney.  While I thought his running mate is a good, smart man he was a total mistake in the eyes of the voters, especially the “new facers!”  So, I am asking the Republican party to wise up and figure out how to get the votes because the Big O will be running for a third term.  Ooooops you say, that can’t happen.  Well yes it can if he gets the 22nd amendment changed, and he has the power to do it.  Now let’s get over our headache and go out and be productive so we can support the many government programs.  

Disclaimer:  While I know the above message looks like an editorial I guess it really is.  After all I woke up with the same hangover as my two friends did, so I had to vent some where, so what we will do is gird up our loins and produce!!!

Movie Review:  

“Cloud Atlas”, *, Wow what a waste of acting talent.  This movie was done in such an unconventional way I never figured it out.  Even the local movie critic saw it twice to figure it out.  He gave it four and half stars, but I am sticking with my one since I figure most people will not pay twice to try and figure it out and neither will I.  The local critic gets in for free, so it is no skin off of his teeth.  Just imagine having Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant as stars and then stumble.  The film was nearly 3 hours and flipped back and forth between six interlocking stories set in the 1849,1936, 1973,2144, and 2346.  So, you just about have to be an accountant to keep up with the different stories.  Possibly my readers are much smarter than me and can get the stories in harmony with each other.  Rated R for violence, language, sexuality/nudity and some drug use.  

EA, SH........:)!
