Why Hollywood and the Harvey Weinstein Accusations Matter

Harvey Weinstein Accusations Cause Chaos in Hollywood  ※  FoxNews  ※  foxnews.com  ※  October 12, 2017

A friend asked me, “Am I the only one that doesn’t care about this? Really, is this news? I couldn’t care less what Hollywood is doing!”

My reply: This is how the elite treats the nobodies. Elites in Hollywood, corporations, and the government are raping––in this case literally raping––people and getting away with it. Their higher-up buddies cover for them. Do you really want these kind of people running the country or representing our society. They do. P.S. Don’t forget about all of our “news” corporations that not only did not want to cover this story, but actively quashed it repeatedly when reporters started researching and writing the story.

Reply to my reply: I’m not ignoring anything, but I’m tired of hearing so much negative stuff. Everyone knows Hollywood is a swamp. Just about every child-star was sexually abused by people in the industry and no one wants to tell that story or protect the children still dealing with it. (another reply) How many of these actors and actresses whored themselves out for fame? … I didn’t say what he did was right, just that it’s not relevant news to me and a lot of other people as well.

My reply: Hint: Washington DC is also a swamp. Are people interested in cleaning it up or do they want to keep voting for people who promise them free goodies? In a sense, these voters are whoring themselves out too. If you choose to ignore that, then you are giving those politicians a pass just like many in Hollywood gave Harvey a pass. It is the same story: it is an open secret, and is barely covered too.

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?  ◇  ~5,000 words  ◇  More comfortable online than out partying, post-Millennials are safer, physically, than adolescents have ever been. But they’re on the brink of a mental-health crisis.

Once, she [Athena, a 13-year-old] told me, she was hanging out with a friend who was texting her boyfriend. “I was trying to talk to her about my family, and what was going on, and she was like, ‘Uh-huh, yeah, whatever.’ So I took her phone out of her hands and I threw it at my wall.”

Parents Who Pay to Be Watched

Parents Who Pay to Be Watched ◇ ~4,600 words ◇ Armed with Nest Cams and 24/7 surveillance, one company promises to fix even the most dysfunctional child — for a price.

The best quote is not even from the article but from ‘bananarama’, a commenter: “That was….an amazingly disturbing read. Jesus…American parenting is a mess.” – Steve

Whether you vote or not, the government is going to tax and harass you until death (and even then they tax your estate) — I say go ahead and complain about it, no matter if you voted or not or even voted for third party candidate.

If you say you don’t vote (for president), because your vote doesn’t count – you know what? – your vote does count in the state you live in. In California, which for now consistently votes for Democrats, if enough Democrats in California don’t vote then the state will swing back to Republican. California has voted Republican as recently as 1988, actually from 1968 to 1988. Arizona and Colorado used to vote solidly Republican, now Colorado votes Democrat and Arizona is very close to voting Democrat. Your single vote does count in those states.

The candidates and everyone involved in the campaigns know the rules for winning when running for President of the United States. -Steve
