Something to do

I often think that the film entertainment industry does not understand it's job description in the USA. It is easily summed up in one word: Entertainment. Although I understand that the suits and the idealists need to cater to a variety of tastes I find myself frustrated by their criticisms most anytime I hear them. Even if I agree.

All I ask is that you entertain me and keep your mouths shut because frankly I don't care what you think. Stop picking on each other so much. And stop throwing your reviews in my face. It's irritating and makes you look bratty. Offer me far reaching comedies, soppy ill-conceived love stories, and out of this world fantasies. Because, those are the types of things I want to see. I get enough reality at home.

Not every film needs to have deep, meaningful, thought provoking purposes. I used to go to an acting coach who constantly encouraged me to "Do something meaningful Jade. Fluff is for phonies." As much as I continue to admire Jon, I beg to differ. Fluff is for the masses. I do not know anyone who goes to the movies to be bombarded by reality on a regular basis. We love the escape into whatever world our film takes place. I could care less if it's shallow as long as it makes me feel emotionally rejuvenated by the conclusion.

OK, Here's the deal; If you are going to comment on my page make sure you have a spine thick enough to use your name. Otherwise I'll delete it. Be as derogatory as you want. However, the comment I'm referring to was not derogatory at all. It just made me do my homework. I like to be challenged. It's fun for me. So make sure I know who you are. Thanks.

English is not the official language of the United States of America. There have been a couple of bills, but none have passed. However, on April 26 2007 the state of Nevada passed legislation that English is indeed the official language. Basically the bill says to foster a stronger community you must have a common language. Second languages are good and encouraged, but here in Nevada we speak English. So how come when my husband goes to school for the union he has to push 1 for English and 2 for Spanish to get his paycheck from the state?

I believe that languages foster a spirit of community. My great Grandparents who came from Germany had to learn English to become citizens. I think to be an official citizen you still do. Weren't those people in NY taking a practice language test before the maniac came in and shot like 13 of them. It doesn't bother me that it's Spanish, or Korean, or Taglog, or Italian. I think it's important to make sure we can communicate with eachother effectively. I feel we need an official language. Obviously I'd prefer English because that's what I speak, and that's what most Americans speak. But if the official language were French I would be upset about having to push 1 for French and 2 for German.

I am outraged! Absolutely irate! I am not permitted to be myself. I'm sure you're sniggering to yourself thinking; "here she goes again." This is not a joke or a set up for some big punchline.My country is going to the dogs. Here are some of the things I believe.

First, of all I believe the greatest failure in this country is the public school system. Education is a privilege not a rite. Scrap it. Get rid of it. All we're doing is indoctrinating children to believe in cliques and stupidity. To believe that to be accepting and no judgemental is the way to be. JUDGE A RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT! That's the way. Yes, you do have to study. No, you may not follow another students' example and use any sort of substance illegally from PCP to Top Ramen. And yes if you need help demand it from those who are there to help you. No it's not ok to allow illegal immigrants to send their children to a school Americans pay for. DO you know anyone that pays the average $8,000.00 for their child to do to public school? No you don't. Do you know anyone who gets $8,000.00 worth of education from a public school? No you don't. Close em all down and let the people here illegally squat in them until we kick their asses out!

Second, My elected officials work for ME! When I call to make an appointment I better be important enough to speak to. Especially when I am patient enough to book six months out. I should not ever have to drop my dead grandfather's distinguished name to get in to see you. I AM YOUR BOSS HARRY REID! YOU WORK FOR ME! When majority of an officials constituents ask something from them as far as a vote this way or that in the house or the senate they had better do it. When the peoples of a country peacefully speak out about their dissatisfaction the President should listen, instead of lying to more people by broadcasting a few citizens who are happy about the extra $30.00 in their paychecks.

Third, my children should never never have to pay for my mistakes. Including social security. That's right I said it. Scrap it! Let these last few have it and put it on the cutting room floor. How dare Washington run up debt to high that majority of America doesn't even understand the scope of the numbers because they were educated in our public school system.

How dare they expect me to fail and not allow me to stand on my own two feet. Failure is an integral part of success. Which is why we don't have a society that is willing to be held accountable for their actions. Because Big Government loves to reward mediocrity and it has trickled down. The losing team gets a trophy too, graduating classes have multiple valedictorians, The treasury secretary can't do his own taxes. Oh! don't worry he'll make sure he gets all of your taxes I'm sure!

Why when I call Bank of AMERICA do I have to press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish? English is our official language. I'm all for immigrants enriching our society, but my ancestors had to speak English before they were granted citizenship. And if you're not a citizen or a tourist... get the hell out. GO! Then come back legally. Unstil then stop soaking up my tax dollars and calling me intolerant because I shouldn't have to press 1 for English. You're stealing you thieving illegal immigrant! Frankly I don't care if you were dragged across a boarder against your will. If you like it so much then be worthy of it! Do it right!

Listen up Nancy Pelosi: I don't believe in bailouts unless you pay tithing and God is bailing you out. Yes one happened while Bush was in office. Thank you Mrs. Speaker of the House. I have alot more to say about this!

I do not believe everyone should just get health care. However I do believe everyone should pay for it. Hawaii was the only state to pass a bill for every child to have health care. It lasted for three months. THREE MONTHS!!!! They could not support if financially. So now Mr President wants the whole country to get in on this wonderfully failed experiment. Hey we'll get free sex change ops, but sorry cancer patients you're all going to die the smart meters won't let the equipment you need for your surgery to work. Yes, this happens in Germany and the UK. Congratulations on being pregnant! You get two visits with the doctor before we slice you open a week too early; a la Canada.

How dare the President ask me to use a smart meter! You want to tell me how much power to use???? Get out of my house you filthy rat! Stop throwing expensive parties, Use Dixie instead of paying people to wash your dishes, turn off one of your teleprompters... or both try memorization! Put the stupid White House on a smart meter. Give up Air force One. Don't buy a new fleet of government vehicles. Fix old ones. Get out of my business!

I believe in these 9 principals and 12 values:

9 Principles

1.America Is Good.

2.I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3.I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4.The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5.If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6.I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7.I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8.It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

12 Values
Hard Work
Personal Responsibility

Ha Ha

An atheist professor was teaching a college class and he told the class that he was going to prove that there is no God.

He said, "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you 15 minutes!"

Ten minutes went by. The professor kept taunting God, saying, "Here I am, God. I'm still waiting."

He got down to the last couple of minutes and a Marine just released from active duty, and newly registered in the class, walked up to the professor, hit him full force in the face, and sent him flying from his platform. The professor struggled up, obviously shaken and yelled, "What's the matter with you? Why did you do that?" The Marine replied, "God was busy, so He sent me."

What Did You Do Today, Honey?

A man came home from work to find total mayhem at home. The kids were outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud and muck. There were empty food boxes and wrappers all around. As he proceeded into the house, he found an even bigger mess. Dishes on the counter, dog food spilled on the floor, a broken glass under the table, and a small pile of sand by the back door. The family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing, and a lamp had been knocked over.

He headed up the stairs, stepping over toys, to look for his wife.He was becoming worried that she may be ill, or that something had happened to her. He found her in the bedroom, still in bed with her pajamas on, reading a book.She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked: "What happened here today?"She again smiled and answered: "You know everyday when you come home from work and ask me what I did today?" "Yes," was his reply."Well, today I didn't do it!"

Republican / Democrat
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a bass boat below. She shouted to him, 'Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am.'

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, 'You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.'

She rolled her eyes and said, 'You must be a Republican.'

'I am,' replied the bass fisherman. 'How did you know?'

'Well,' answered the balloonist, 'everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me.'

The man smiled and responded, 'You must be a Democrat.'

'I am,' replied the balloonist. 'How did you know?'

'Well,' said the bass fisherman, 'You don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault.

I am SOOOOOO funny!

I didn't realize this comment was so funny until I read over it before posting it on a friend's page.

I prefer the Bowl method. Whenever I see a bug I simpy place a bowl over it and wait for Jerm to come take care of it. We used to end up with many upside down bowls, but now the bug man comes twice a month. I haven't used a bowl since I threw them all away!
