Default The Movie 2016

My family and I just finished watching the movie 2016, about Obama. If you have not seen it, please do so. It answers many questions about our future in this country.

It is now out on video, so it should be easy to download, or to rent.

I am really scared about the year 2016.

It's not going to be easy,,,,,

I hope that I will be able to handle it.

You see I'm going to turn 70 that year.

Luanne, I saw that film last month and it did help me to understand Obama a bit better. Prior to the film, I just figured he behaved more or less like any other product of the Chicago political machine. However, I doubt that it would impress any of those who seem to feel he deserves canonization. The cinematography is poor enough so that it is tiring to watch, and Obama lovers are just going to say that it reflects the bias and/or prejudice of those who were interviewed. After all, anyone who objects to our fantastic president HAS to be prejudiced, right? Or should that be left?

Sister all I care about is people knowing what they are getting into. If this is what they want, then part of our freedoms is to choose.

I just don't want people to one day say "Darn, I wish I had only known."

Most of the movie was Obama himself speaking. He told people what he was like, and they either didn't care, or didn't listen.

In 2018, the Republicans might finally smarten up and run a candidate that appeals to the middle of the road (not so far Right you have to go out to the parking lot to find them). I seriously doubt it will happen, though.

2016> I plan to cruise more than I do now, and thats all I give a s**t about.

I am so sorry for the misunderstanding. I didn't start this thread about what you will be doing in 2016. I started it, because I had seen a video about Obama, and wondered if anyone else had seen it.

I thought maybe we could discuss it.

What I meant to say is, I will be cruising in 2016. Not building a shelter or stock-piling food and ammunition.
I dont expect the world will explode if Obama is re-elected.

So this means what as far as the thread is concerned?

That is good to hear, but still has nothing to do with the movie.

Sorry Luanne... but you might want to re-read your post. You said you saw the movie. You recommended other people see it.

But you never asked if anyone else saw it, or their thoughts on it. No mention of anyone wanting to discuss it.

May be what you wanted to say, but it's not what you said.

If the "movie" is 35 minutes long, you might want to say its on Youtube.

Your right Kuki. I just thought it made sense that if I brought it up, there might be some discussion. I forgot where I was for a minute.

You know, I find it incredible what people will believe when they want so hard to believe it. If Rush Limbaugh (or someone closer to this website, even) made that movie, it would be way more credible. Not one of the persons interviewed is anywhere close to Barack Obama (his Mothers college professor???), yet they make incredible conclusions, mostly based on heresay. Its not worth the film it wasnt printed on. I had to stop watching it.

Glen Beck is involved, so it has to be true, right?

Luanne...

I fully understood your post and I have seen the movie and I also highly recommend it.

It is now out on DVD and maybe PPV. It is only $4.99 and well worth watching.

The director/producer is the guy who was on the air with Bill MahEr the night he said "we are the cowards" on "Politically Incorrect on ABC ( and was subsequently fired).

The movie is an attempt to understand Obama based on the things he has done, said and written - especially including his book "Dreams From My Father."

The idea is that Obama is concerned with Colonial exploitation of smaller nations by more powerful western nations.

From the POV of the movie it does make a lot of sense. Although I am skeptical of anyone who thinks they can read somebody's mind, I feel he makes a very good point.
