This is far from a normal post for me but after seeing the movie INCEPTION I had to "blog"
about it, I had no choice. Don't get me wrong, I am not a movie critic except I do have an opinion on this movie. I have to say Movies have not been something I have been "into" until recently. It might have to do with visits to a small town in North Carolina, Shelby and a person ( Jeannie) who happens to live there. In any event, this movie, INCEPTION, is a far cry from an everyday movie and might not be enjoyed by everyone. However, I would recommend everyone over ... say 13 or so see it. ( I picked 13 only because I figure at 13 I was ready to see and understand this type of movie) There are some movie stars in the movie but that is not why you "need " to see INCEPTION. As matter of fact I would rather see a movie without movies "stars" because I want to see the the actor as real people in the story not as actors.
INCEPTION is a real "dream" of a movie! OK, that was my attempt at humor, you will understand it only if you see or have seen, the movie.
OK, so this movie is about dreams and the way dreams are used to change real life. "Change" might not be the best word to describe what goes on in the movie but I don't want to "give away" any of the movie it is too good. So I guess you will have to see it to understand.......
I will tell you to be on time for this movie, open you mind and if you can takes notes in the dark ..... well .... ( OK maybe taking notes might be little extreme, but I want to see the DVD so I can stop it)
I will say dreams are an important part of the movie, if not the movie itself but it goes way beyond just a dream ... maybe a dream within a dream, within a dream, and back out.
OK, there it is, ( I "sort of" lied before when I said, I didn't want to "give away" the movie), I just gave you the entire movie without really giving away the movie. Tricky, maybe, but you have to see it to understand. If you have already seen it you understand perfectly.
See it, then let me know what you think.........

Facts to remember before you vote in Nov 2010
Interesting facts you should know about and remember when you go to vote. I am not telling you who to vote for I am saying read these facts and think long and hard before you vote. Try your best not to fall for the lies and misrepresentations made by,some of, the people who will be running for office. Look at their record, how they voted in the past. I am not going to say too much about the current president except, look at what has happened and what has not happened, experience is important. Electing someone to the highest position in the government with no experience is trouble, big trouble. Of course the experience level doesn't have to be as high the lower the position in the government but you need common sense people who understand life and the way things need to work, NOT: "pie in the sky" - "the government can cure all, and is the end all be all" - "the government knows better than the people and should have control" - "the more government the better" type of people! I will say, stay away from labels but be aware of labels.. A conservative government leads to a society that is free and a people who control the government not the other way around.
I ask that you remember the following facts before the elections in November 2010.
- U..S.. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.
- They voted NOT to give seniors a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
- Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years
- There will be no 3% COLA: $660/yr.
- Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.
- Over these same 2-years each Congress person will get $10,000
- ( Excuse me but)Do you feel SCREWED?
- Have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., decreased?
- NO WAY.
Congress received a raise and has better health and retirement benefits than you or I.
- Why should they care about you?
- You never did anything about it in the past.
- You obviously are too stupid or don't care.
- Do you really think that Nancy , Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barny, etc., care about you?
Send the message to these individuals --- "YOU'RE FIRED!"
In 2010 you will have a chance to get rid of the sitting Congress: up to 1/3 of the Senate and 100% of the House!
Make sure you're still mad in November 2010 and remind their replacements not to screw-up.
It is ok to share this with others in your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse. Maybe it's time for Amendment 28 to the Constitution..
28th Amendment will be as follows:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."
( It is hard to believe this isn't part of our Constitution already.)
Let's get this passed around, - these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves! It's time for us to have people in our government working for us. Let's take back America ..
Please let others know how you feel about this, tell you friends, tell you government. if you don't you could be part of the problem of national apathy.
Let me know what you think. I don't mean to offend anyone but I, as you, want my government back. They are supposed to be working for us, not for themselves and not make things SOUND good but be good and remember 28th Amendment!
A lot of this seems to apply to seniors but it applies to all of us.
Thank you for reading, come back and feel free to comment.
