The Three Stooges Movie – Loved it!

I will be the first to say one the things that I hate to see is someone trying to imitate the Three Stooges.  It is usually like a bad Elvis impersonation.  There is something special about the Stooges that make them unique, an institution of their own.  When I heard there was going to be a Stooges movie, I was not really crazy about the idea.  I knew I would go see it.  I expected it that it would just be bad.

stooges I also want to add my girls absolutely love the Stooges like I do. We watch them any chance that we can catch the reruns on TV.  So it was decided this afternoon would be McHawes family day at the movies, to see the Stooges.  We all loved it!  I laughed through the whole film.  The actors nailed their roles as Moe, Larry and Curly.  The mannerisms were dead on.  Don’t get me wrong this was no Godfather style epic motion picture.  It was the Stooges and it was exactly what is was supposed to be, funny.

If you are a Stooge fan, go see it.  You will enjoy it.

An emotional Marine Corps love song, it warms my heart

Those of you who know me, know that I am a soft hearted ol’ Marine.  During the past weekend my son, who is also a US Marine played a very emotional love song for me that another Marine had written and sung.  I derived great pleasure from this video and I think many of you will as I have.

It tells the tale of relationship of a Marine from love at first sight all the way till the trip to the after life.  Please give it a watch and let me know what you think.

For those of you that it offends, well, get over it.  I laughed like I had lost my mind.  Semper Fi!

Why if Obama had a son, didn’t he look like this?

OK, I have bit my tongue on this for the past couple of weeks.  I have weighed writing this because more than likely it is going to piss some people off.  It should not be taken personal, but rather weigh the question that I am posing for you.  The media has been consumed with stories of the Trayvon Martin shooting.  It is a bad situation and I think that it is going to get worse before better.  I also think there is a lot more to what went on.  It is far from over.

EdwardFrank-thumb-400xauto-22768 I personally feel that Obama is made from the thinnest veneer of morals possible.  I think he is very arrogant and will stoop as low as he needs to get votes.  He will tell you what you want and have no plans of how to do it or any intention of following through.  I don’t agree with his moral stances or his political stances.  I don’t like him.  It has nothing to do with his race, I don’t like him and what he stands for.  My view of what he stands for and maybe your view might be completely different, that is a completely different post.  I do think he has made race relations worse.  No doubt there is racism in our Country.  It covers every race represented in our land.  There is no place for it and hopefully we as a culture at some point will not classify or judge people for the color of their skin.  Why does it matter what color your skin is?

So how does Trayvon Martin and Obama play into this you ask?  A week or two ago Obama weighed in on the shooting.  First off, why? I will tell you why, it is election year and he felt this would be great time to step and secure more of the minority vote and possibly another voter base he had not touched.  Before you scream out that is ridiculous and off base let explain.  Obama said that if he had a son he would have looked like Trayvon.  Maybe so.  But what is the need for that statement and for him to offer his opinion, other than to tighten the screw on the racial pressure cooker that is steaming over this.

SOLDIER 002 If it was not politically motivated and for vote seeking then why didn’t he come out and say that if he had a son they might have looked like Edward J. Frank II or Jameel T. Freeman?  Let me correct myself, Sgt. Edward J. Frank or Spec. Jameel T. Freeman.  Sgt. Frank was killed in Afghanistan in August 2011 and Spec. Freeman was killed in August 2011 as well.  Click their names and you can read more on who these men were.  Isn’t it possible that if he had sons they may look like one of these young heroes?  Why didn’t he step up and weigh in on their deaths?  Because these young men were just names on a report that he reads each day.  That’s it.  There were no votes to be gained by acknowledging them.  I know George W. never did either and he wasn’t obligated to.  I don’t think Obama is either.  However, W. never stepped up and talked a bout a kid being shot in the streets looking like his child.

Obama stepped up kicked the beehive knowingly and hoped when the dust settled their would be some votes in it for him.  I hope that our Country does the right thing in November, for the sake of all of us.
