Fluff and Stuff
Have I ever mentioned how much I love Denzel Washington? His movies are so good, whether playing the good, the bad, or the ugly. ‘Glory’, with Matthew Broderick, has to be one of the best films I have ever seen and, ‘The Book of Eli‘ just blew me away. I absolutely love everything he has done but, today I love him even more. Denzel and his family visited the troops at Brooks Army Medical Center a few days ago. Soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany are hospitalized there, especially burn victims. There are a lot of Fisher Houses there and they are filled most of the time. While visiting, Denzel was given a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one would cost to build. After being told the cost, Denzel took out his checkbook and wrote a check for the full amount of the cost to build one.
While the LSM spends its time concentrating on the Lohans and Kardashians of the world and drools over the fashion icon status of MO (who looks more like a ballon in the Macy’s parade in her outfits rather than a ‘fashion icon’) men and women like Denzel are never reported on for their acts of kindness. He saw a need and did something about it.
In other news…city bailouts coming to a blue state near you…talk about the entitlement mentality.
Blue State Suicide ……Let. It. Burn. Talk about voting against your own best interests, read it all.
With their enthusiastic backing of President Obama and the Democratic Party on Election Day, the bluest parts of America may have embraced a program utterly at odds with their economic self-interest. The almost uniform support of blue states’ congressional representatives for the administration’s campaign for tax “fairness” represents a kind of bizarre economic suicide pact.
Any move to raise taxes on the rich — defined as households making over $250,000 annually — strikes directly at the economies of these states, which depend heavily on the earnings of high-income professionals, entrepreneurs and technical workers. In fact, when you examine which states, and metropolitan areas, have the highest concentrations of such people, it turns out they are overwhelmingly located in the bluest states and regions.
Everything which might cause doubt about the wisdom of the government or create discontent will be kept from the people. The basis of unfavorable comparisons with elsewhere, the knowledge of possible alternatives to the course actually taken, information which might suggest failure on the part of the government to live up to its promises or to take advantage of opportunities to improve conditions–all will be suppressed. There is consequently no field where the systematic control of information will not be practiced and uniformity of views not enforced.
which brings me to this bit of news…..
