The Da Vinci Code (movie)
I saw the The Da Vinci Code this past weekend. As always, I have no idea what the critics were talking about. It was actually a decent movie; a more tamed version of Raiders of the Lost Ark. There were some protesters out there. I guess I can understand why they would feel threatened by it. But it really isn’t hard for me to believe that some powerful folks formed a secret group to hide parts of the bible and make women subservient to men. But I digress.
I’m really getting to the point that movie critics are out of their damn minds. The reviews on “A History of Violence” led me to believe that I was in for a classic. It was garbage. The reviews on “The Da Vinci Code” were average and though it wasn’t the greatest movie, it wasn’t bad at all.
A thought on the Border
I haven't changed my mind on this issue. There are too many hypocrites for me to really care one way or the other. The fact is that the folks that pay for elections want cheap labor and could care less about border security. These same folks love for the free market to set prices but don't want the free market to set wages. And the kicker is that companies are paying less for labor but haven't passed any savings on to the American consumer. When was the last time you saw a company lower its prices after shipping American jobs to China?
Then you have the folks that hate workers rights and people fighting for living wages and love the goods made by cheap labor but want to ship all of them back home.
Then you have the illegal talking how they do jobs Americans won't do. Bull - Americans won't do jobs at below market wages. They're taking skilled construction jobs as well. Look who's building homes. It isn't the $30 hour union contractor - it's the $15 hour illegal.
Trust me, these guys are going to talk tough until the election then pull the rug from under our feet. Bush is going to grant amnesty, the National Guard ploy is a photo opt waiting to happen. And ten years from now we'll have this conversation all over again.
I believe most politicians are lying stacks of hot garbage. They are piles funky excrements littering the path we call this walk of life. They make me sicker than eating spoiled boiled bologna mixed with rotten eggplants and served with a side of human feculence.
But it does not serve me well to want to dump them in an outhouse rather than give them my vote so I would like someone to explain to me why I should care about any of the bastards in Washington DC.
1. What is the name of the politician do you trust the most? Why
2. If you could change the law, would you change it to allow Bush to serve two more terms? What about Clinton?
3. Is there a politician you’d trust to be king?
4. On a scale of one to ten, how much do you trust: Bush, your Congress person, politicians in general?
