I am not saying that the movie was saying you must compromise yourself.
But they did not not say it.
At the end of the film, the voiceover, which was as forgettable as the rest of the film, could have taken that moment to say "Life is full of compromises, which is a lesson we all have to learn." Then add the following statement, "It is okay to compromise as long as you do not compromise who you are."
Because that is were the danger comes in. Once you start compromising who you are you end up like Mitt Romney.
He had good parents. Progressive parents. Parents who stood up for something good. Mitt saw them fail. Then piece by piece he started to give away a peice of his soul. Lying to the press here, making up a story there, subjugating human rights here, shipping jobs to China there.
That left him a hollow man. And people can see how empty he is. He compromised himself away. Which is why his first ad attacking Obama lies. It takes something Obama said when quoting John McCain out of context and said that is what Obama thinks. That is so misleading it is appalling. And he lies about everything.
That is what happens when you start down that slope of compromise of your principles. You lose your principles. I hope, and I keep telling myself this, that Obama has some principles left. He has sacrificed them in the affordable care act and closing of Guantomino Bay. His drone program is also not a great thing either. But he is not a hollow shell like Mitt Romney.
Brave did not discuss that one iota.
Fail Disney. Once again you have failed our children.
Saturday was my birthday. And I want to not ask for happy birthdays, although I will accept them happily, but I ask you for help. As some of you may know, I have never been to Wisconsin. We need to fix this, I would like to see Wisconsin and spend several days at a workshop run by one of my favorite artists, Steve Rude.
I don't have the money to do this on my own, but with your help we can get me to Wisconsin. As one who is making an investment in my art, you can receive some art. Check out the video below and click on the link to donate and help me get to Wisconsin.
