Underscoring deeply conflicted characters, who are on a mission to reconceive their unsatisfying circumstances, has become director David O. Russell's sweet spot.

I am here to talk about a political cartoon in your newspaper. It was by Adam Zyglis posted on Aug. 2, 2013. It shows a Republican (represented by an elephant in a suit) saying “Practice makes perfect” while throwing a paper away in a garbage can that says “40th vote to repeal Obamacare,” and the lid to the trash is the Capitol building. At the bottom of the page it says, ”The art of doing Nothing.” This cartoon is showing how the government is falling apart and turning into garbage because of the huge disagreement in the congress, and how this all is going nowhere. I agree with what it is saying, and I think the government should come to some sort of an agreement on the law, or just have one side try to see the other side’s perspective instead of being blind on the whole picture.

“If you’re a conservative and stop to rescue victims in a car accident like Mitt Romney’s son did, you’re mocked and ridiculed by those on the left. If you’re a liberal and kill someone with your car, then run away, you’re elected senator of Massachusetts like Ted Kennedy!”

What exactly is an “inadequate” health insurance policy? It turns out that the answer to a seemingly innocuous question is key to our health care future, to what happens when Obamacare goes down.
We have traditionally had two inescapable realities in life: death and taxes. Well, you can add to that list: death, taxes and fees. Fortunately, this past week at least one kind of fee was said to be improperly levied. It’s one charged to you for keeping tabs on your government.

What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.

I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
