    NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN

    NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
     
    I have my own prejudices for sure.

    I will not view a film or tv show with Gary Sinese or John Voight or a number of miscreants who I have witnessed libeling or slandering President Obama.

    However, I have created my own exceptions. I have a need to watch Clint and a number of other actors who express opinions that vary from mine.

    Then there are other films that I have real problems viewing for other reasons.

    I cannot watch:

    NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
     

    Over the years I have probably viewed this film five or six times.
     
    It is just too damn much.

    But this has got to be one of the greatest films ever made.

    I probably quit watching it due to ensuing nightmares.

    I am a coward, after all.

    But there was always a question regarding the title.
     
     
    I looked for the answer at several sites and there seems to be some agreement.
     
    Old men seem to feel that there has been some moral decline in this country over the years and these old men do not seem to 'fit' any longer in society as a whole.

    I sense that this feeling is present in old men regardless of the year or the generation in which these old men find themselves.

    Hell, how moral was the situation I found myself in the '50's?

    Whether one was referring to Jim Crowe or the military industrial complex or corrupt politicians or women's rights or a host of any other 'sins' existing in that era; I can hardly look back at the good old days.

    So I have come to the conclusion that this 'feeling' of moral degeneration is somehow linked to old men. hahahha

    THE END IS NIGH
    I have become an old man and I feel that 'everything' is turning to shit!
     
    Tommy Lee Jones speaks with the cat man towards the end of the movie and somehow concludes that everything went to shit at the moment that kids quit saying 'sir' or 'madam'.

    hahahahahahah

    Anyway....

    I am now an old man and I believe in my heart, in my very soul that everything has gone to shit.
    hahahaha

    We as Americans just elected a fat  old jowly ignorant man with no socially redeeming qualities.

    NONE

    I will switch channels whenever he appears for a talk or a press conference or a photo op.
    Because I know deep down in my soul that this man is a compulsive liar and a nihilist.

    Trump believes in nothing; nothing except for himself.

    The words psychopath or sociopath or nihilist or ...whatever are meaningless.
    All he ever does is grimace or smirk.

    And every time the media presents this monster all I can do is grimace or smirk.

    And my reactions are anti-intellectual:

    THE RICH WILL GET RICHER AND THE POOR WILL HAVE CHILDREN.

    SOLDIERS WILL BE ASKED TO KILL OR BE KILLED.

    CORPORATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO TURN EMPLOYEES INTO SLAVES.

    RICHER FOLKS WILL RECEIVE BETTER AND BETTER MEDICAL CARE WHILE THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE POOR WILL RECEIVE LESS AND LESS MEDICAL CARE.
    INTERNMENT CAMPS IN THIS NATION WILL MULTIPLY.

    FREEDOM OF THE PRESS WILL BE CHALLENGED CONTINUALLY.

    THE ENVIRONMENT WILL SUFFER GREATLY.

    SENIORS WILL LOSE MORE AND MORE OF THEIR LIMITED BENEFITS.

    CHILDREN OF THE MIDDLE CLASSES AND POORER CLASSES WILL BE HARMED.

    EARTHQUAKES SHALL INCREASE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

    DRINKING WATER SHALL BE MORE AND MORE ADULTERATED.

    Humanity does not advance or improve in a straight line. Yes, it wasn't better then.

    Medical doctors were still bleeding people into the 1920s. See Bad Medicine, Doctors Doing Harm Since Hippocrates. The leading British medical periodical is Lancet, named after the knife used to bleed you, nothing in medicine changed for almost 2000 years from antiquity.

    Wilson said World War One was to make the world safe for democracy. Of the 3 defeated land empires, divided ethnically into nations, only one democracy was left by 1939. Finland. Ethnic cleansing largely unheard of in the multiethnic pre 1914 empires was codified as legal after WW1. See The Vanquished, Why the First World War Failed to End.

    We will survive Trump. He even agrees with Senator Franken on one issue. Hahahaha...!!
