Thank You For Your Service

We need to talk about your patriotism.

 

Feeling proud of your home is a good thing. We should do that. We should celebrate all the things that are good about our culture, and those who make sacrifices for it. I am an American, and I am proud of a great deal of American history. I am an Oklahoman, and I am proud to be from a state that had to work hard to become a livable home. I also acknowledge that neither of those organizations I belong to is perfect, and much of that imperfection is self-inflicted damage.

The New Democracy

Hypocrisy is a forgivable sin in politics. Should it be?

Every time the last president played golf, we heard fake outrage from the same people who remain silent at the current president’s 13th time in his first 60 days, without question the defining days of a presidency and its legacy.

Rogue One, A Star Wars Story

Rogue One is the first attempt at spotlighting a side story to the normal Skywalker storyline in a major release. The teasers allowed us to see that it took place around the time of the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, and that it would involve something to do with the rebellion and the construction of the first Death Star.

Election 2016

At this point it’s more probable that Donald Trump is either going to win the national election, or the tie will go to the House of Representatives to pick the winner, which most likely would be a Trump win as well.

The House and Senate both appear to be a safe keep for the Republican Party also tonight.

The Television Box

Yes, I am sure I am missing something you love here, but this is the list of shows that I would say give legitimacy to the art form of television serials. The writing, the production, the acting, the concept; something made you see the world differently or captivated you to keep watching.

Then something neither of them planned for happens: Rey, a scavenger from the planet Jakku finds the droid and keeps it as her own. Finn, an ex-stormtrooper who hopes to leave his past behind him, crosses paths with her and breaks the news of what exactly the importance of the droid is. Next thing either of them know is that they are on the run in order to withhold the droid from the First Order. They meet a pair of old buddies and after a few skirmishes between them and the determined First Order, the droid is brought to the Resistance base. There, multiple plans are hatched against the First Order while the secret information on the droid is slowly and surely working itself out…

The Congress

Robin Wright plays a fictional version of herself, an aging actress with a reputation for being fickle and unreliable, so much so that nobody is willing to offer her roles. Her son, Aaron, suffers from Usher syndrome that is slowly destroying his sight and hearing. With the help of Dr. Barker (Paul Giamatti), Robin is barely able to stave off the worst effects of her son’s decline. Robin agrees to sell the film rights to her digital image to Miramount Studios (a portmanteau of Miramax and Paramount) in exchange for a hefty sum of money and the promise to never act again. After her body is digitally scanned, the studio will be able to make films starring her, using only computer-generated characters.
