Veteran’s Day was a holiday for me, but not Lay, so I went to watch this movie. It was well worth the ticket price.
Let me be clear, I do care that Trump won, and I care about determining how this awful destructive force has been unleashed on our once great nation. And I think I have cracked the code. It’s because a lot of Trump supporters just said, “I don’t care.” Certainly people were motivated to vote for Trump for many reasons, but I believe it boils down to suspending their empathy to feed their fear.
Much on-line ink has been spilled these last weeks eviscerating the Democratic Party and Secretary Clinton. Most certainly the party, and especially Debbie Wasserman-Shultz bear a tremendous amount of blame, not just for the Clinton loss, but for not having the infrastructure and ground game in place to retake the Senate and make gains in the House. This was inexcusable, but hardly a surprise. Wasserman-Shultz voted Republican about as much as she did Democrat, and didn’t use the previous 4 years to build a 50 state organization as Governor Howard Dean had started.

During the Second World War, a special project is begun by the US Army Air Corps to integrate African-American pilots into the Fighter Pilot Program. Known as the “Tuskegee Airman” for the name of the airbase at which they were trained, these men were forced to constantly endure harassment, prejudice, and much behind the scenes politics until at last they were able to prove themselves in combat.

We watched this movie Sunday night. I know it’s been out forever, and we’d intended to watch it back when released, but just never did. It was on Amazon Prime, so I pulled it up.
There would be a lot of reasons for giving the Douchebag of the Day award to North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (or as I like to call him, Governor McSquinty). HB2 would be one of the biggest, but you could also include his complicity with the rest of the Republicans running things in Raleigh in dismantling a once great system of public education. You could add on the fact that he’s bought and paid for by his sugar daddy, Art Pope, but we get to combine HB2 and natural disasters for this one.
A couple of weeks ago, as Hurricane Matthew was churning its way up the east coast of Georgie and South Carolina, bearing down on North Carolina, where it ultimately did the most damage, McSquinty was doing what he does best, and whining at a party of bigots.
During the cold war, a lawyer, James B. Donovan is recruited by the CIA and involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers. The pilot was arrested alive after his plane was shot down by the Soviet Union during a mission and stays in the company of a KGB intelligence officer, Rudolf Abel, who was arrested for espionage in the US.

Lay wasn’t feeling great, so after going out to grab a bite, we came home and watched this from Amazon, and we both enjoyed the movie a great deal.
