Watching the Green Mile on AMC

Between that and Shawshank Redemption I always get sucked into watching those two movies all the time.

This Green Mile quote by John Coffey got me this time.

Mostly, I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time.
John Coffey

It brings tears to my eyes every time!

Just saw this movie last night called Bad Faith

It’s free on Tubi with commercials. It tells of how since the 70’s the christofascists have been planning on taking over our country by dividing us by religion and with Reagan’s election in 1980 they were able to grow and get tax breaks. And used the maga churches as political tools to gain power. It also mentions about how they are embracing the repuke party and now the convicted felon to do their bidding! I recommend it.

My Willie Mays story

When I was about 4 years old my parents took me to a BBQ at one of their friends home in Oakland. Most of my parent’s friends were black middle homeowners and I remembered we’d go over there from SF for parties and special occasions. At this one BBQ Willie Mays showed up and everyone was fawning over him. He had this pink Cadillac that was really cool. I opened the door and climbed inside and explored this car with white leather and other details. My Dad was horrified and came over and told me to get out. Willie said “leave her alone and let her enjoy the car”. There was a picture taken of me, Willie and my Dad standing in front of that car! my Dad would always tell that story. I saw that picture when I was in high school but when I went through my parents house years after they both died I couldn’t find that picture. I still own and rent out the house and have those pictures stored there and now want to find it!

I have a question for magas

Would you be ok abolishing our constitution and democracy for the orange convicted felon so that the USA becomes a dictatorship?

I thought of a good Slogan for Democrats in 2024

I’d rather vote for a representative who pledges their allegiance to the law and constitution than one who pledges their allegiance to a cult leader who wants to destroy democracy and is not a convicted felon.

I was curious to see if Fox was talking about the trial

They were attacking SF and said it was overrun with migrant drug dealers! Ok I live here and there are bad areas, the tenderloin mainly that has always been notorious for homeless, drunks and drug dealers.

I guess they will be using this to attack Gavin Newsom who was once mayor of SF and now governor of California.

I can’t tell you how much I am disgusted by Fox attacking my hometown city. I live here and have been to several other states and have seen drug dealing and homeless there!

Tonight's SNL is the best ever in a while!

I have laughed more tonight than I have in a couple of days. And don’t get me started on laughter tears.

My grandfather used to say you need to laugh a lot to stay alive! I didn’t get it until I got older. Laughter fills your soul with joy.

Anybody have an opinion of smart news that shows up on android ?

I’m kind of dubious of that news and it has a right wing slant to it. Is it me or has anybody seen it ?
