"America Is Not Country Anymore"
"America is not a country anymore, its a business". That is the last line in the movie, "Killing Them Softly" starring Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini and a few other unknown actors. At least I don't know who they are. The moral of the story is, if you are a dumb ass, don't rob a high stakes, back room poker game filled with mobsters. The underlying message in this movie is big business, Lawyers, Obama and George Bush have turned the United States into a commercial infested, bankrupt nation that is slowly being flushed down the drain by greed and a population of citizens that are like instant gratification clones. When I heard Mr. Pitt say that line it all made sense to me. Like any big business mired in greed, debt and corruption, it will fail. Its only a matter of time. This movie reminded me that what I have been saying all along is true but I am not alone with what I am thinking. The writers and producers of this movie cleverly inserted Obama and McCain TV campaign messages in the background during their gangster meetings in bar rooms and offices and if you think about what is going on these days, it is flash back of accurate statements. Oh, the movie? Its a fair action, hit man movie with a few other underlying messages. Check it out...
Its true. We are not living in a Nation or a Country. We have become part of a huge business machine that is out of control. We are being programed everyday to spend and buy buy buy, not thinking of the consequences. The perfect example is the picture below....Anybody want to buy an old post office? This one is for sale in Norwich Conn.
