I like the movie, “Deck the Halls”. It’s kind of a fun, funny, family movie. Not my favorite – but I’ll probably watch it every year around Christmas time. If you haven’t seen it, Matthew Broderick (Steve) and Danny DeVito (Danny) are fighting through the whole movie as Danny moves into town and feels bad that his neighbor’s house – owned by Steve – can be seen in satellite imagery from space.
Danny decides to light up his house for Christmas in such a way that it can actually be seen from space. It’s crazy and funny. The whole time these two goofy guys are making all kinds of obvious family mistakes – and it’s really not all that out of the ordinary. And when two competitive neighbors start to clash (Steve and Danny) – it makes for an interesting story.
I guess I’ll make my last blog post of the year about Feminism. It seems like 2017 was the year of Feminism. Like most things, there’s one half of Feminism that makes sense – and the other half. The other half is typically the more obnoxious, crazy woman that yells louder – so we’re hearing far more from the crazy half than the normal half. But the good half is still out there…
One thing I’ve found strange is that it’s essentially bad to tell a woman she’s pretty as of 2017. I know it depends on your approach. Wait, I probably shouldn’t use the word “approach”. That sounds like a trigger word. Yes, I understand all of that… So – it depends on how you go about telling a woman she’s pretty. This is just one example and I’m focusing on it because I find it odd and interesting that women are “appalled” and “disgusted” by men telling them they’re pretty.
The thing is… A man telling a woman she’s pretty doesn’t automatically equate to him wanting to push her over and ram his male personal part :p up her back door. More often than not, there’s no hidden meaning of “I wanna F you in the A”. (I guess this will be a PG rated post). A good portion of these guys just want to brighten up your day and see you smile. Okay, okay, back up. They just want to “make” you smile. Because the man “seeing” you smile is all about his own gratification… (El Oh El – There is just way too much thought being put into all of this…)
I’m going to twist your mind a little bit. Is that okay? Would ya mind? No? Great. Thank you… So… We know there’s a lot going on with the border wall and deportation and this and that… I know. And I could be mistaken but it does seem like there’s a disproportionate amount of violent crime that comes from immigrants as opposed to those who’ve lived here all their life. Correct me if I’m wrong. I don’t mind being wrong. If I’m wrong, you need to correct me. That’s how people learn.
So perhaps I’ve been misled, but it appears a lot of our crime, especially violent crime, happens at the hands of immigrants. When I say immigrants, that doesn’t mean “Mexicans”. There are all kinds of immigrants in this country. That’s what America has been about since, like, ten years ago. (:p) Anyway… So one area where we have a lot of immigration – especially illegal immigration – is Mexico. So there’s an obvious push to stop people flooding in from Mexico. Our way of life is very different here and it takes a lot of learning and experience to assimilate into our culture and way of life. It’s challenging for any immigrant.
But let’s focus on Mexicans for the time being… And let me change the story for a minute. Just a minute!
