If you are in the mood
for something non-mainstream, this movie, Napoleon Dynamite, is for
It reminds you of the
current Presidential Election. Who will you vote for? Summer
(the rich, popular cheerleader) or Pedro (The minority)? Will
Napoleon (who supports Pedro) affect your vote in any way?
Summer represents the
rich. Pedro, most
of us (reportedly 98% majority). While the poor have angst (See In America movie) so do
the rich. As the rich get richer, some of their children may
continue making documentaries that show the angst of being rich.
What will "born rich" kids do with themselves? Collect old, rare
maps? Or ask the question, "What is a washing machine?"
As two, rich kids, who
already have plenty on their asset columns, John Kerry and George W. have
turned their time toward public service. They have different ideas
of helping the world.
One proclaims to support the middle
class. Those who are paying the government's
bills should at least see some of those taxes work for them. The
poor and middle class are investing in the "certificate of
deposit" called the Government and
Kerry proposes to give them a good return on their deposit. This
means, everyone, go buy Heinz ketchup! This may be the beginning of
our oil-free diet to a more anti-oxidant diet! :-)
George W. has not
denied the bigger tax break he has given to the rich--The rich know the
"stock" called "George W." is for them. Just
trust the "news you can trust" on TV and what is not shown.
Otherwise, do what Dr. Phil always says, "Remote Control."
If a Napoleon Dynamite
can make a difference in a High School election, because his name is
"Napoleon" and he is willing to "revolutionize"
societal norms, then that's really what elections are for in this
country--to exercise democracy--to be able to oppose the current power--to
make a change--to demand representation with the taxation.
Should we start
worrying when a Presidential candidate scowls as if he shouldn't even be
attending a first debate? Does he know something? Another
