Speech For Our Times


Good Cold Morning Movie Fans,

I read yesterday, with some humor, some sadness and mostly open eyes, the announcement by Steven Cobert that he is running for President on the GOP ticket. With biting truth he, along with Jon Stewart, strip the farce of american politics clean.

WELL NOW. I am an opinionated political person and I am concerned at the turn of events over the last year - we now live in a country where a group of 5 men have determined that corporate entities are now people. Really. A sort of rich Super People capable of social mindset manipulation via the media.

So, at the risk of alienating readers, I invite you to click HERE to view one a scene from the movie V For Vendetta. I am asking for only 5 minutes of your attention. As fate would have it, our daughter, Kawena May's nickname is V so it becomes a personal wake up call to the future we hold in our hands. Brings to mind the hollywood remarks of a witch burned at the Salem stake....

"Remember, words are the most powerful thing we humans have. By merely speaking to another we cause Love, or Hate, Pity, Anger, Joy, Remorse or Acceptance. We can bring Peace, War or compassion in a matter of seconds. Words can change how you think and see the world around you. Try it and see how strong Words are."

  1. I know this was not intended, but for me, a conservative, this epitomizes the present administration. I guess it really is just a matter of perspective.
