    “…not a comedy but a prophecy.”>>>
    Yeah, well, at least Governor Lepetomane was legitimately elected into office.
    Another example of life imitating art comes to us courtesy of the movie Idiocracy. Funny as the movie is, I thought the writers had, at times, over played their hand. I no longer think so. The campaign to dumb everything down has probably succeeded beyond even the wildest musings of the culprits involved.

    A wonderful movie that could never be made today.
    No studio would greenlight it.
    No director could direct it.
    No writer could write it.
    No actors would dare appear in it.
    No Theater chain would show it.

    Even though they knew it would make a fortune.

    Blazing Saddles is great movie. One of the best scenes in it is when Cleavon Little points a gun at his own head and takes himself hostage. The movie was a tremendously effective attack on racism and it could not possibly be made today. Here is the scene:


    Watch it before it is cancelled forever.
