Batman V Superman - Sad Affleck

Poor Ben. No one likes to hear how poorly Batman vs Superman has been recieved. I think despite his the good work he's done in the past I think he really wanted to do a superhero. He tried in Daredevil years ago but I don't think it did well compared to other superhero movies. The guy has already won Golden Globes and Oscars. Nothing to be ashamed of as far as I can tell. In all likely hood he's bone tired of promoting this film and is just bored of the interview. We've all had moments when we've been in a group conversation when our minds wander. The video is kind of humorous in any event.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I did like this book very much. I was interested in this as I had just finished listening to "To Kill a Mockingbird" just before this was published. Everyone was so upset about their beloved Atticus Finch turning into a segregationist in his old age which had everyone upset because they had put Atticus on such a high pedestal.Now after listening to whole thing I realized that maybe they hadn't gotten to end or perhaps blinded by their expectations of Atticus. I Loved Atticus too but never felt he was above being human as all of us are and have our fallacies.

Set in Alabama Jean-Louise finch comes home from New York for a visit. She finds her that her world has changed. Her father, aunt, uncle, boyfriend are not what they seem as the community is heated up about segregation. The case of Tom Robinson is mentioned briefly as are some other characters from "To Kill a Mockingbird". She has a breakdown of sorts. The ending will surprise a little and bring some understanding. Read or listen to entire book before passing judgement.

Watch Hillary Clinton speak on counterterrorism

Removed from Rolling Stone

Recently Rolling Stone endorsed Hillary Clinton by Rolling Stone Magazine. Of course Bernie bots came out in force in their comments sections online. I did post this response but was removed by the admin. I kind of wished they'd give an explanation but anyhow. Perhaps it was a bit too inflammatory. Good thing about a blog is that I'm the admin so here it is.

I liked the article and I agree with the endorsement. Of course the Bernie supporter online media army has been out in force denouncing this endorsement. You'd think they(Rolling Stone) shot Bernie down cold in the middle of the street. I think many supporters that feel the Bern fail to see the forest for the trees. It wasn't Hillary that needed to move left it's Bernie that needs to move to political center to be taken seriously in a general election. A general rule in national elections is that party extreme(left or right) get taken to the cleaners on election day. Look up Goldwater(extreme right) in 64 and McGovern(extreme left) in 72 who were not just beaten but embarrassed. If you look at most recent Presidents and those that were nominated you'd find most moved to center of the political spectrum because that's where most voters are. Even George W Bush was constantly harassed by Fox News and other right-wing pundits for not being conservative enough. So all those screaming that Hillary is not to left enough it's because it would be a mistake to go too far. She needs to to be close enough to center to appeal moderate of both party's. That's the reality folks.

It would be a better to let the Republican's nominate the extreme candidate be it Drumpf or Cruz. The Republican establishment is tearing it's hair out as they don't know what to do. They have two extreme candidates who would have almost no crossover appeal to moderates of the other party and they know it. Let them make that mistake. I'm betting they'll have super-delegates in the future to prevent the nightmare they're going through. Many pick on Hillary cause she's part of the establishment. So she is. It's because to get things done in politics you need connections to those that get things done. In come's President Bernie with his anti-establishment rhetoric and how many friends do think he'll have to get things done? Very few I would imagine after he's insulted them all throughout the campaign and his career. I think he does well because he's running in one party primary. In the light of day in a general election that socialist banner will be like a lead weight.

 I've even seen the crazy idea for Bernie to run third party which would be disastrous he would certainly drain votes from the Democratic side. Apparently some have short memories of Ralph Nader sapping enough of Al Gore's votes from Florida in 2000 to give us 8 years of George W Bush. Just let that sink in for a minute. Drumpf might as well order his giant gold DRUMPF sign to attach to the White House. Again let Drumpf go third party and ruin it for GOP. I have nothing against Bernie and actually like him and many of his ideas but unfortunately I don't feel he's the right one for the job. What has annoyed me most is the followers that get so wrapped up in passion of the moment and spew hatred and disdain for those of us that don't feel the Bern. They are only topped by brainless Drumpf supporters with their atrocious behavior.

 Please keep in mind that by staying and stomping you feet on election day on principle is the same as voting for Drumpf. What exactly does that gain? Your just spiting yourself and harming the rest of us. Should Bernie be nominated I will vote for him. To not do the same for Hillary is shameful, stubborn and childish. Grow up.

Rolling Stone Endorses Hillary

Hillary Bites Back

This past week the Drumpf camapign released an attack ad which in itself is not surprising but the contents were perhaps made up by a middle schooler. It shows clips of Russia's Putin and ISIS video and then show's Hillary barking at the end (presumably at a campaign stop) with Vladmir Putin chuckling at the end. With dramatic drumbeat in the background the last line say's "We don't need to be a punchline". 

Hillary's SuperPAC didn't waste any time with an ad about a day later that uses the same beginning video but the last half has Drumpf claiming "I have a very good brain" and has Hillary laughing afterward. 

Not only that The Kremlin itself has taken offense to the ad as it it makes Putin and Russia look evil. Drumpf seems to forget that Russia is our ally now and placing them in an ad with ISIS does go over well. It seems the Donald has a thing or two to learn about offending foreign relations. Especially those that are your friends. 

I find it amazing in this day in age that campaign ads can be made this quick in response. Also I think Drumpf may under estimate Hillary in a general election. Despite having Bernie Sanders give her a run for her money it will be different in an open election rather than a primary fight. 

If this little tit for tat ad battle is a sign of things to come it should be an interesting election year.

First Lady Nancy Reagan

I was sorry to hear First Lady Nancy Reagan(1921-2016) passing away. Her size was deceptive as she was full of class and could hold her own. She was a constant adviser, companion, love, and friend of President Ronald Reagan who passed away in 2004. 

I can still picture her full of grace and class while listening to those speak at President Reagan's funeral. She reminded me of my own Grandmother who had recently passed away around that time. Like Nancy her delicate stature was deceiving as they both left a large legacy.

Nancy, may you again be reunited with your love.

“(Nancy can) make me lonely just by leaving the room.”
-Ronald Reagan

Hillary Clinton Bar Talk - SNL

VIDEO: #SNL goes all in with "Racists for Drumpf"

How would Ted Koppel cover Donald Drumpth?

The retired news man Ted Koppel rips Bill O'Reilly(and Fox) a new one. The subject of course is Donald Drumpf and his unlikely rise to the top of the Republican candidates. I think a key item that is pointed out is the lack of investigation or insight into Drumpf's policy's or ideas. In short no one is doing any real investigating or digging into Drumpf's policy's and holding him accountable. His answers he gives are vague, evasive and he gets irate if you question him. I wonder if anyone will actually take up the challenge and dig into this more.

To The Limit: The untold story of the Eagles by Marc Elliot

To the Limit: The Untold Story of the EaglesTo the Limit: The Untold Story of the Eagles by Marc Eliot
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was inspired to look up this book after hearing about Glenn Frey's recent death. The Eagles were a staple of the rock radio stations I'd listen to as a teen in 1980's. Their music seemed the perfect backdrop of early love's and relationships. I felt they were there many times as someone who knew what joy's and heartaches I was going through at the time.

The book covers their history from the their childhoods to their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the late 90's. It is filled in between of their birth as a band that grew to super stardom in 1970's. After a harsh breakup they pursued personal stuff in the 1980's. Then they reunited in the 1990's and just seemed to pick up where they left off.

I was so glad that I was able to see them live in 2013 which was high on my personal bucket list. They certainly didn't let me down.

The book is definitely worth reading if you like the Eagles.

Free Chris Christie and the Republican Party

It would seem that New Jersey Governor Christie is having second thoughts about endorsing Donald #Drumpf. It's seems like he's signalling for help in the background. Already The New Hampshire Union Leader, the Granite State's leading newspaper, has retracted it's earlier endorsement of the New Jersey Governor. On top that six New Jersey Newspapers are calling for Christie to resign in light of his recent endorsement of the #Drumpfinator. Which by the looks of it he's having some second thoughts. I don't think he's used to playing second fiddle to anyone.

It's funny that the Republican Party now doesn't know what to do with #Drumpf They only had since last June. I think part of the problem it was too large and wide open field of candidates. It was kind of sad that after this much time since George W was in office no one had really come across as an outspoken Conservative leader. So of course the one with the loudest mouth, guess who that was, got all the attention. Now the GOP establishment has this monster on their hands that they don't really want. Jeb Bush didn't really have the persona to take him on. Senator Rubio has put on a spirited battle, which I do admire, but it may be too little too late. The time to take the mouth on was months ago.

Unlike the Democratic establishment who made it clear that Hillary Clinton was their choice from the beginning. Although Bernie Sanders has put on a spirited battle was in an uphill battle against the party faithful which Bernie actually being an Independent, was never part of and so he had little backing or help.

It seems as Jeb Bush was sort of the establishments choice but they failed to back him aggressively hoping Trump's showboating would fizzle, obviously it has not. They turned to Rubio but he does seem to lack experience and seems like the new kid on the block. He has to come out of his comfort zone to be tough.

I have the feeling that many in the Republican Party feel the same as Christie standing behind the hairpiece mouthing off. As if saying "What the hell did we get ourselves into?"

I'm hoping the Democratic Party and Hillary are already setting their sites on #Drumpf so they don't  get blind sided like the Republican establishment has. I think part of his success has been that no one expected to go this far, probably not even #Drumpf. He had the element of surprise on his side. I doubt that beating Hillary is going to be as easy as the hapless Republicans have.
