Thought On The First Ten Minutes Of Manifest

We all hope that when we get on an airplane, that we will arrive at our destination without any hiccups. But that is not always case.

Manifest will be premiering on NBC on September 24th. To get some buzz going, the network released the first ten minutes of the pilot. Manifest is the story of a plane that experiences turbulence. When the plane lands, the crew and passengers have discovered that five and a half years has passed. While time has moved on and their loved ones have aged, everyone on the plane has not aged at all.

 

I’ve been curious about this television program since NBC started airing previews earlier this summer. It feels like the show has a Lost like, which is perfectly fine with me because Lost is still one of my favorite television shows.

I will have to wait until next month to see if Manifest lives up the hype, I have a good feelings that it will.

I Think You Know Who Is Jealous

By every measure, the late Senator John McCain was a true American hero and patriot. His loss will be felt for years to come.

While most remember Senator McCain as a giant of American politics who represented the ideals of America, you know who is taking an adult temper tantrum.

When a sitting Senator dies while still in office, it is tradition that the flags around Washington D.C. are lowered to half mast and remain so until this person is buried. The flags were lowered on Saturday, raised yesterday and then lowered again.

 

News reports have also stated that you know who is barred from Senator McCain’s funeral as per the late Senator’s direct instructions. Both Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who defeated Senator McCain in 2008 and 2000 Presidential campaigns respectively are not only invited to the funeral, but they will also be eulogizing their former Presidential opponent.

The thing about you know who is that it’s all about him.  If he doesn’t like what he is hearing or he doesn’t get exactly what he wants, he takes a twitter temper tantrum. He plays schoolyard bully style politics with those around him. When something goes his way, he brags to anyone and everyone who will listen. When something does not go his way, he will place the blame on everyone else but himself.

The fact is that the man or woman who takes any leadership position, there is an expectation of how they will behave. We, as the voting public, expect the President Of The United States to be mature, rational, composed and represent the United States as a beacon of democracy and freedom to the rest of the world. Instead, our current President is an orange-colored man-child who has the emotional temperament of a spoiled toddler and represents everything America is not.
