An instant classic. Inside Comey’s head…

Saw this on the Twitter and put my own artsy spin on it.

Director Scorsese says he is fascinated by history, but fails miserably in his analysis.

At Trinity College in Dublin

Being fascinated by history, I read as much as I can. It just reminds me of the late 20s, the 30s … reading about how these things could have happened at that time. It’s a scary time.”

So is Trump Hitler? Is that what you are claiming, Mr. Scorsese? It’s so unoriginal, that it’s actually boring.

Referring to the rise of global terrorism, Scorsese says that the Iraq invasion “had created thousands and thousands of Travis Bickles.”

This reference to Bickles is much more interesting to me. But. maddeningly, Scorsese does not make it clear what he means.

Bickles, portrayed by Robert De Niro, is the depressed loner who is the focus of his 1976 film Taxi Driver, which I consider vastly overrated. Bickles is drawn to violence in his disgust against the decadence and sleaze around him.

“They say they have nothing to lose.”

Just what is Scorsese getting at?

This is why so many us are sick of the status quo!

A $138,400
annual paycheck

from the feds
for corrupt
Jesse Jackson Jr.!?

From the front page of The Chicago Tribune. An investigation shows disgraced, criminally convicted former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is being paid $138,400 every year from the federal trough. That's taxpayer money!

Despite having been convicted and imprisoned for corruption, former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. collects a hefty salary, milking the taxpayers for even more. Meanwhile, shootings and murders in Chicago continue to plague the populace, the homeless and the poor continue to struggle, and the politicians continue to bilk the system.
