Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.
This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.
Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.
Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!
Several times back in the past (i.e., before the attack) I can remember listening to our Representative Gabrielle Giffords live on local radio, being interviewed and taking calls. Gabrielle took all calls without hesitation and spoke up on a range of issues, even those that were personal to the caller. In a soft voice, Gabrielle spoke with strength and sincerity. With so many people in office today, such courage and common sense have evaporated.
What a tightrope these GOP politicians have to walk these days. The actions and results of those depraved, state supported, hacking Russian-spy trespassers may take a long time to unravel, so it is currently hard for an elected politician to hedge a bet and decide what's best to do. A safer bet, however, is that someday in the future there will be an avalanche of disgrace spread among office holders who stand strong with Trump to assist and attend his cover ups (e.g., Nunes). If Congress cannot utilize its powers to distance committees from the president's manipulations, and if the president continues to defy the courts through slander, then changes could be profound in a government that loses that vitality of checks and balances. If that happens, then we all will be able to watch a decline in our quality of life for many years to come.
Condescending, Aren't they so?
I have donated money to candidates in the past. Never any extraordinary amount, but somehow my name was available for anyone to see. But when I read that wealthy, election-tipping people (even foreign people) can somehow anonymously donate millions of dark dollars through PACs and Citizens United subterfuges, it just stinks up the whole country. More power to good efforts to "allow the public to more easily view and track money in political campaigns." Whenever I see it, I will look forward to believing it.
Hundreds of well paid Russian agents have infiltrated Comments sections across the country in publications both large and small.
As long as for-profit insurance corporations are really the ones in control with no public options, there will always be increasing rates no matter who is in office or who needs health care the most. I fault McSally and many, many others in DC for avoiding this central problem. Insurance companies want to keep receiving your premiums, but they do not want you to ever get too sick because it is too expensive. Worse - they are consolidating into a few huge monster corporations that will most assuredly lobby office holders and spend millions of that premium money instead of figuring out better care.
Since we live within her district, I have sent a couple emails to Rep. McSally and it seems as though they have fallen off the side of a cold, distant cliff. Hard to reach.
