Goodbye yellow brick road, hello yellow brick wall

Hollywood has sunk to a new low, even for them - capitulating to demands from an oppressive government not to insult them or their country. All for the sake of money.

And no, I am not talking about America. Because Hollywood has proven they don't care about demeaning America, Americans or American values. I am talking about how they are cow-towing to China and Chinese demands for "sensitivity".

This is pretty sickening. Hollywood has always been a bastion of morally repugnant heels, but this latest bit of "concessions" to the demands of a totalitarian government makes my blood boil. Hollywood has never failed to insult one aspect of America or the other, from the Bush bashing W, EVERY Roger Moore flick and the denigrating Julianna Moore depictions in Game Change to the constant barrage of white supremacy / black violence / homosexual acceptance that inundates the "silver" (yea right) screen. Yet no Hollywood producer cares about - and even hopes for the controversy from - the outcry from the public over these constant insults to America, American business or American values. Yet insult one aspect of China and they "excise" the film. Deplorable. And these low life scum who call themselves members of some elite group of artisans wonder what has happened to American audiences. I'll tell you, they are sick of paying your exorbitant ticket prices for mediocre movies that constantly assault our eyes, ears and sensibilities. Also, when it comes to paying these high prices (both in tickets and concessions) vs paying our bills, putting food on the table or buying medicine for our children, you lose . . . EVERY time.

I guess its time for another round of independent filmmakers and production companies. The last time Hollywood went too far afield, along cam such visionary independent companies such as Weinstein, Wachowski, New Line and others. Eventually, they were absorbed by the Hollywood megaliths of cinematography. Some, like Touchstone, were the big companies pretending to be independent. But these were quickly discovered and the ruse abandoned. But new indepndents will rise in response to thsi latest Hollywood depravity.

I hope. Otherwise, coming soon to a theatre near you, you'll be watching the new incarnation of Red Dawn, where it is America swooping into a country and toppling the government, only to be thwarted by the brave cadre of rice farmers who battle the evil invaders.

Anyway, agree or not, I really don't care. Just stop being mindless sheep and unconcerned drones. Think for yourself. But hell, its all good. This is just me, Thinking Out Loud.

Have a great day.

Gun Control does NOT stop criminals

So, you all are hearing about all this gun control rhetoric from DC. Most of it is such crap. It addresses nothing and positions the government to take away more and more from Americans.

Now there is an email form the White House that is just loaded with lies, bupkas and more crap.

"For the first time since the 1990s, Congress might be on track to pass legislation aimed at reducing gun violence in the United States."

Legislation to control guns does NOT stop gun violence. Chicago, IL has the most restrictive gun control laws in the country. Would you feel safe walking the streets of that city during the day let alone at 2am? Not me. In 2012, gun violence was UP, not down. And new gun legislation won't affect the illegal purchase of guns.

"And it's because folks in Washington are starting to understand that the rest of the country isn't going to sit by and let them ignore this issue. Your voices are the reason we have a chance to win this debate. The American people expect and demand a yes or no vote."

No, moron, what the American people demand is you get your heads out of your butts and understand what the real issues are and not your insipid knee-jerk reactions to events like Sandy Hook Elementary.

"But this is a critical moment. It's been almost four months since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, thousands more Americans have died at the hands of gun violence, and time is on the side of those who would prefer that we do nothing."

Ta da! See, Sandy Hook. The legislation they are proposing would NOT have stopped that tragedy. A better mental health view in this country WOULD HAVE!

"We want to make sure that your voices are impossible to ignore. So we're asking people from all over the country to speak out online in concert -- all at the same time. Will you join us?"

I agree wholeheartedly. Speak out. And tell these idiots to stop worrying about their re-election campaigns and where their next special interest payment is coming from and start doing some good. Spread the word on Facebook to call up, email, visit your leaders in DC and tell them that 1) Gun legislation WILL NOT stop the violence in this country 2) Maybe they don't think they are an overbearing government that would strip our rights but even the founding fathers knew that future governments might not be as faithful to our Constitution and gave us the right to protect ourselves from such governments with the Second Amendment 3) Mental health is a better use of their time than gun laws that won't work 4) If they keep worrying about their re-election and their special interest kick backs we will make sure they don't have anything to worry about. 5) Stop with the knee jerk reactions to things. Sandy hook was a tragedy but you are focusing on the wrong aspect of that tragedy.

"So let's make sure that there's absolutely no confusion about the public consensus."

YES! 100% in agreement. Let us REALLY give them an idea of public consensus. Tell them THEY ARE FREAKING MORONS! Stop making laws that don't work! Stop wasting their time on these useless pieces of legislation!

Okay, that is my rant for the day. Agree or not, just so long as you stop listening to every word from these people who have no care about you as gospel. Start looking at FACTS not SPIN, and decide for yourself. Whether you agree or not makes no difference to me, just think for yourselves. ANyway, this is just me, Thinking Out Loud.

have a great day.
