Unlike Jimmy Stewart’s kind-hearted character in Mr. Smith goes to Washington, these two characters have no scruples, moral compass, or basis concept of right and wrong. They are closer to the hired assassins that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie played in Mr. and Mrs. Smith… serial liars and manipulators with a steadily climbing body count of the people they consider enemies. Sadly, if they were as pretty as Pitt and Jolie we probably wouldn’t have such a problem with their twisted souls. After all, Hollywood brought us reality television that is anything but reality. We have suckled at the tit of perverted truth for quite some time.
How we got to this place is anyone’s guess. Especially since the meaning of “truth” has been obliterated, not only by entertainment outlets, but by personal opinion and shouting heads on forums that used to report actual facts called the NEWS.
I’m not writing this to give answers to the huge mess we are in. Other than praying, Lord come quickly, I don’t have the answers. Oh… except for the deeply held belief that we should ban the Kardashians from television and social media forever. That might help.
If only someone good and decent and truthful would run… We all know why good people no longer run for office. Because they would be destroyed. Believing in something besides money, power and fame will get you kicked in the teeth real quick. The media’s full-time job is to come alongside every perverted special action group and shut up those who disagree with their murky shades of ever-darkening grey matter. We must all assimilate like spineless amoebas. Just slip into the flow of slime and believe what you’re told.
When a show called Lucifer has a prime time slot and one of the characters actually says to the devil – “I know you’re not completely evil. There is good in you.” – you know our country is doomed. Satan is now a shade of grey?
*I only saw a commercial but it sounded like stupidity mixed with a healthy dose of plagiarism. Haven’t heard that line before, have we Darth?
Sadly, even if Hollywood imagines there is something worth redeeming in Lucifer, I know there isn’t. Similarly, I don’t believe either of our two candidates have any redeeming traits. But the show will go on Tuesday November 8th whether we like it or not.
I certainly don’t want to tell you what to do. In the past, several celebrity types promised they’d move to Canada if things didn’t go their way. Surprise, surprise! They went back on their word. I can see why they may have changed their minds. It is awfully cold up there, after all, and they do tend to run in hotter circles.
Personally, I’d move to Hawaii, but living on the beach is a lot more expensive than living in the cold tundra, and writers don’t make enough to live a life of leisure and comfort. That’s why I live in Minnesota. Compromise.
Hey! Maybe I should be a politician.
