It's Time To Stop Apologizing For Tina Fey - BuzzFeed News
[ more entertainment, don't make people think, don't try to make them think ... in cinema people uhhhmmmming ] But good books do not always make good movies — especially since the transformation from book to screen, at least in Hollywood’s hands, generally subtracts instead of adds nuance. [...] The most successful films are documentaries, which don’t face the inherent problem of casting actors, and white actors in particular, to play “bad guys” of different races, and high farces: films like Dr. Strangelove, M*A*S*H, and In the Loop that expand and eviscerate the inherent, if hidden, ridiculousness of modern war. [...] [ film has only ] cheap tricks, not the lacerating humor of effective farce. [...] women’s place in society, and sexual desirability as an alternately empowering and infantilizing experience. [...] The film dodges that idea, however, in favor of pitting Robbie’s character — who was created specifically for the purposes of the film — as Fey’s “competition.”

INEQUALITY FOR ALL - Upward Mobility on Vimeo
This is a clip from the Robert Reich film "Inequality for All." You can see or order the whole film here. It's also available to watch instantly on Amazon, or you can get the DVD from Netflix. It is truly worth your time to see the whole movie — I promise! Fact-checks by Robert Reich's very capable crew. + - Twitter user GroteMond has rightly pointed out that socialism isn't technically equal distribution of wealth. However, in the case of this video, the video creator is referring to the majority of Americans' perception of what socialism is, not what it actually is. So yes, there's yet another thing we are generally misinformed about. + USA Healthcare +
