I asked up at the big cinema complex in the next county. They are not showing it because they don't think it will appeal to enough customers. Instead, they will show a movie about Peter Rabbit, a movie about a "physically challenged " woman who thinks she is beautiful, and a couple of other "appeal to the lowest common denominator" type shows. Nor does anyone have any plans to show the new movie about the Entebbe Rescue.
Well, that's fine. I'll buy the DVD's when they come out. There's a new movie called "Leave No Trace" , the trailer is below. I'm pretty sure they won't be showing that one, either.
The weather has changed, and the days are perfect here. Low seventies in the daytime, mid forties at night. Low humidity. Everything is turning green. Seems like one day the woods were all gray or brown, then the next every shade of green.
I've stopped listening to my scanners as much as I used to do. It's getting too depressing. Better to just concentrate on things up here on the mountain, on my own property. At least I have some control here. I've been spending more time listening to "wildcat" shortwave broadcasts coming out of people's barns in Tennessee and Mississippi, although Arkansas and Missouri have some interesting stations too.
A lot of them are religious, but they have news worked into their broadcasts. They're all pretty sure the End Times are coming. I don't know about that, but I agree with them that the Bad Times are on the horizon.
Life seems to go better when it's not cold, snowy and dreary outside!
Took all three dogs to the county rabies clinic yesterday. That's always a goat rope, but you get your dog vaccinated for $10.00, as opposed to $65.00 if you go to the vets office.
Today is the day the "immigrant caravan" is supposed to reach the U.S. border. I listened to a radio broadcast on the satellite radio about it today as I was waiting for dawn. Apparently, the Democrat affiliated outfits that support open borders sent lawyers down to Central America, got this thing organized, and have trained the would be "immigrants" to cross the border in adult/children pairs. If they get picked up with a child, ICS is currently operating under an Obama era rule that says the adult and the child have to be released and given a "court date." The ICE agent on the program pointed out that of course, they never show up. He was desperate to get this rule changed, but the oversight committees that have input into the issue are being blocked from action by the Democratic politicians in D.C.
No one seems to know what exactly will happen when the "caravan" tries to cross the border, but the ICE agent being interviewed said he thinks they will just come in the country, be given court dates they won't keep, and disappear. There was some woman on the show who had helped organize this thing, and she said that the U.S. has no right to keep people out who want to come. She said greedy, selfish Americans will have to realize that they have no right to live better than the people in her country, which I think was El Salvador. She also said that by trying to keep "her people" out of our country, the U.S. was "oppressing" Hispanics and "keeping them down."
I thought this was well put.
And that's the way it is.....
Listening to my scanners at night, I'd say this guy knew what he was talking about.
