The Oscars happen Sunday night. Years ago, I looked forward to the Oscars because I went to the movies a lot. I seldom go any more so I could care less now. I would like to get back to getting into movies but the Hollywood culture has me repulsed. I don’t really care about their political views either left or right. I want to appreciate their art and they have plenty of it, so they should be pleased by that and be thankful. Everyone has the right to give their opinion but I have the right to have mine too. Here’s something else, I’m smarter than most of them and so are you !
Here’s a positive amidst the doom: IT’S FRIDAY !!!!
