Spielberg's masterpiece "LINCOLN" blew me away. Daniel Day Lewis, one of the best actors on the planet, was the essence of Abraham Lincoln — as far as we know him from history books. A deeply fair man, he radiated the best qualities of mankind.

These days we need all the heroes we can get. And I don't mean sports stars. Lincoln's wit, innate goodness, quiet wisdom and deep reasoned reflection — elevated him to an almost superhuman figure. But this is what we should all aspire to be: ego-free, humble, wise, compassionate and smart.  He seemed to glow from within.

What a difference when you think of braggarts like Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, certain candidates or any shallow self-promoter.

What impressed me the most was his humility, and the way he turned to his own internal codes.  He was a true leader, with moral courage. He won the popular vote twice, but didn't care about being popular. He didn't indulge in people-pleasing, and refused to be swayed by others' opinions — even of those in his cabinet. He wasn't insecure or indecisive -- though he did have gut-wrenching, complex moral dilemmas.  What I loved the most was his turning to his inner code.

Lincoln was a real man: quiet, soft-spoken, never egotistical, never petty. 

And the cast was insanely great: such an array of faces we all love!  Tommy Lee Jones, hilarious and raw and feisty as the most liberal abolitionist of the Republican party, could hardly contain himself when called upon to be "moderate." 

And James Spader was never more fun to watch with his walrus mustache and mercenary vote-buying goodness. 

I loved Sally Field, even though her bitchiness and self-centered nagging made me cringe. 

This movie got me back on tack with my own mission. It inspired me to stop wasting time. I really want to help change the world for the better. All these years, I've been afraid to speak out too much, so I've kept one foot in the doorway. I should have blasted Ann Coulte for her bigotry and hate speak -- in much louder ways. But Lincoln knew that timing was everything. 

The time is now.  



    I'm looking forward to seeing Lincoln when it comes out on DVD. I've read nothing but positive things about it.

  2. ABRAHAM WORFEUS - Vampire Hunter12:29 PM

    Its nice to see an actual movie about actual things come out instead of the nonsense they're pumping into peoples brains today.

    When I saw advertisements for "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" I think I threw up a little in my mouth.

  3. "Gentlemen, Fellow-Citizens: I presume you all know who I am. I am humble Abraham Lincoln. I have been solicited by my friends to become a candidate for the Legislature.

    My politics are short and sweet, like an "old woman’s dance."

    I am in favor of a national bank.

    I am in favor of the international improvement system and a high protective tariff. These are my sentiments and political principles. If elected, I will be thankful. If defeated, it will be all the same."

    Abraham Lincolns first public speech.


    You know, when I think back to how Voltron and Freedom Fart used to spin their Fox News "Cracked History" accounts of how Lincoln wasn't against slavery, and the Civil war wasn't about slavery, ...then I read Lincolns biography and his absolute HATRED of slavery, and how he STARTED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY to fight slavery (abolition) ... then listen to the uneducated, illiterate lying twits that have inherited his party, a party that was built for the people, ALL the people..who deny the very things he stood for and created their own party just makes ya sick.

  5. Lincoln hated slavery. He spoke out publicly at every opportunity against it.

    Having been sold out as a effectively an indentured servant by his own father (a boy was the "property" of his parents until he was 21) Lincoln was especially sensitive to this subject.

    He felt that a man working hard all day only to have another reap the rewards of his hard work was the height of all evils, and he made no small stink over it, being at odds with the citizens who elected him to the Illinois legislature. But he didn't care. He insisted it was evil and must be "ABOLISHED".

    Yet in here, we've spent hours listening to Voltron and the other home schooled right wing "anti-science, anti-history" trolls in here telling us how Lincoln "didn't want to free the slaves".

    At one point, you just have had enough of these liars, and their nonstop support of evil via lies.

  6. The only reason I put my website up for DVDs of "Too Close for Comfort" was because I saw them on Amazon going for $999.98 and $59 on up, & was shocked! I only sell these in conjunction with a charity and a percentage goes to another company. So for any "Too Close for Comfort" fans who asked me about the show, where it's playing, etc... I just wanted you to know that it's for sale on my website for much less, and autographed too. I always include photos and free gift. I can't reduce or change the price or get into my website until we get our technology back but it's a great deal. DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED just because you're my friend here. I am just letting everyone know they can get them on my site, and photos too. Love you all. I certainly don't expect you to buy anything. Love and HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL YEAR LONG!!

  7. Please read the new updates and leave comments on any thread you like.

    Johnny Moo Moo, I finally got your message.

    At what point does a reasonably intelligent man like Voltron turn and look at what he is saying, and has said and just grabs himself and says "wait a minute!....I'm lying to people...lying about history, science, promote an ideological racist religious party......what's wrong with me????"

  9. I love history so this movie should be good.
