SCRIPT FOR “LIFE OF PI” IS WONDERFUL; IMPRESSIVE IS THE TESTIMONY BY THE SCREENWRITER ABOUT IT

“I’m not the kind of person who really likes to be looked at all the time. I was not naturally an actor…I am naturally a hermit who sits in his room and types all day,” he said. I understand that and share in that perspective: such are the words from writer David Magee who adapted […]

I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DID FOR THANKSGIVING BUT I HAD A TURKEY BURGER SAMMICH AND SAID MY GRATEFUL PRAYERS

This is funny: Thanksgiving Bingo for Your Dinner Table – by Jennifer Lewis, Flavorwire, Wednesday Nov 21, 2012 Are you tired of gathering around the same old Thanksgiving table to eat the same old delicious meal while having the same old Thanksgiving-themed conversations? You know — the ones about food, football, the parade, food, politics, […]

RE: OBAMA AND BENGHAZI — “I THINK HE’S STONEWALLING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE”

No kidding. On 09/12/12, me and, likely, an estimated majority of Americans concluded that the day before that — 09/11/12 — attack on the U.S. Libyan Embassy in Benghazi was an act of terrorism. The grim and glaring “coincidences” of dates, locations, targets and behaviors was what I’d call a big clue resembling an iron […]

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2012

It’s a day for giving thanks for all that we are grateful for. Despite one’s circumstances, there is always something to be thankful for.

READ THIS AGAIN: “BIG EGO, TINY ETHIC”

I ask all readers to, please, read or reread this post of mine from 2008: BIG EGO, TINY ETHIC Jul 31st, 2008 at 9:48 am At this Thanksgiving, I acknowledge that there exists an unnatural personality occultism where “Barack Obama” is concerned and me encouraging readers to visit/revisit that post of mine is to encourage […]

HEROES, THE QUIET ONES

From website, “A.Word.A.Day,” is this “THOUGHT FOR THE DAY“: In our world of big names, curiously, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knownness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, […]

VETERANS DAY 2012

Our national and individual appreciation, value of and gratitude to our veterans should never be refused them: our veterans have proven their willingness to protect our nation and to do so in situations and conditions that many of them never disclose out of consideration for the rest of us. We should also never exclude the […]

BARACK OBAMA: STILL ALL HYPE AND NO PRESIDENT AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A MANDATE

Barack Obama has somehow managed to ‘win’ this latest election for the Presidency but he has no mandate, he was not elected by the nation’s majority despite what he claims. I write this not to discount those legitimate votes cast for Obama that have been counted but to point out that there is a huge, […]
