The new normal in America is almost daily controversy coming out of Washington D.C and the White House in particular.
The latest controversy is former aide Rob Porter, who has been accused of domestic violence by both of his ex-wives.
Randy Rainbow’s latest video, a satire of the Patsy Cline song, Stand By Your Man, is just one more reason why Trump should not be in office. Known for publicly defending powerful men who has been accused of sexual assault and/or sexual harassment (and denying the accusations coming his way about similar acts), it is not surprising that he is defending Rob Porter instead of doing what right for his office and the country.
I don’t get what the problem is with their divorce. Yes, they are actors who are in the spotlight, but they are first and foremost human beings who, for whatever reasons (which are frankly, no one’s business but theirs), decided that the marriage was not working out.
The issue that I have is that is we, as a culture, still have a problem with a woman being single. When a man is single, no one blinks an eye. But when a woman single, it’s like the world is ending. She must have something wrong with her and the only way to fix her is to find a man.
I could go on, but I think the ladies on The View says it all. Skip forward to the 2:09 on the clip below.
Flying has become a routine of our modern lives. It can also create an opportunity for blackmail.
In the 2005 movie Red Eye, Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) hates flying with a passion. On a flight to Miami, she sits next to Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy). The conversation starts off as regular small talk until Jackson reveals that he has ulterior motives. If Lisa does not help Jackson assassinate a politician, her father will be killed.
This movie is brilliant. If there was one film to describe as a thriller, this film would be it. Murphy is truly terrifying, reaching the limits that only a villain in an Alfred Hitchcock film would reach. For her part, McAdams fear of flying is only heightened by the very difficult decision that she knows she has to make.
