Black Phillip is Obama

We watched The Witch last night and about halfway through it struck me how much it is a liberal elite critique of red state America. An ignorant, superstitious white family is cast out into new circumstances for which they are underskilled. Their economic situation is dire and out of their control and they are surrounded by powerful cultural forces working to tear them apart.

It walks the line between being sympathetic to the family and a critique of them. The threat is real and the father is loving, but ultimately undone by his own lack of skills (the workforce needs to educate itself) and his wife's dogma (right-wing talk radio). The ending (which I won't spoil) reinforces the critique.

The Last Exorcist is the only other one that immediately comes to mind, but I bet you could find a strong trend within 21st century horror movies of these kinds of themes.

If it was that he was too literal with the bible and too conservative, that would further reinforce the red state theory.

Thanks for posting this +Rob Donoghue

Really fantastic article.   I hope this can start engendering some empathy for the people who feel their only solution is to vote for somebody like Trump.  America needs to start having a hard conversation about the neo-liberal and corporatist policies that is consistent across both major parties.

This election is starting to seem more and more like The Caine Mutiny, or someone about to go Death by Mods on a forum.  Only it's not a forum so the aftermath is going to be incredibly awkward at best.

Here is the one bad thing I can think of about this Durant pick-up.

The Warriors are TOO talented and it bites them in the ass.  They only play up to their full potential when they are really challenged psychologically.  Unfortunately, because they were blowing teams out, that led to a lot of bad habits and a lack of solid execution.  This is what kills you in the playoffs.  And Cleveland took it to us and exposed us.

I had hoped that the loss would get them to tighten up , listen to their coaches and work on their execution under pressure.  Now with Durant there, they can relax all over again, relying on talent to get them through any tough spots. 

Now obviously, the talent with Durant is at a ridiculous level, so it may take them all the way to the championship.  But you never know what obstacles they may face.  I just hope that they buckle down, practice and work on their fundamentals.  I swear if Curry throws another one of those stupid behnd the back passes or over the shoulder lobs, it is a bad sign.

Your NRA in action:

"Meanwhile, the N.R.A. has broadened its activities into political arenas that have little to do with the actual ownership of guns. It has worked to pass bills that prevent pediatricians from speaking to patients and their families about guns they have in their homes. It has lobbied for bills that prevent military counselors from asking enlisted and former military officers about their personal firearms, even if the soldiers appear at risk of doing harm to themselves or others. The N.R.A. opposes micro-stamping, a technology that would help match bullets found at crime scenes to the guns from which they were fired. The organization opposes “smart gun” technology, used in Europe, which permits a gun to be fired only by its owner. The group has lobbied aggressively to prevent the Centers for Disease Control from studying gun violence as a public-health issue, even though the C.D.C. routinely studies the health consequences of many products and technologies, including automobiles."

Wake up, America. The leaders of the NRA do not care about your rights or freedom.  They care about the big gun manufacturers that fund them and will do anything to help them make more money.
As the tragic pattern of gun violence continues, the N.R.A. faces a genuine threat to its future: a growing divide between its ferocious leadership and sportsman rank-and-file.

Hey +GoogleHowTo how do you find out who is the owner of a Community?
How can I know if I am a moderator?  I think I am, but then I can't seem to make anybody else a moderator.  Do I have to be an owner?

PSA.  Also, some disturbing for the real world but cool for worldbuilding info here, post-apocalyptic style.

+Michael Gibbons that's cool, never thought of that before.  So when we get dug up, people are going to think Utah was the center of the empire and the Mormons the rulers.

A culture of fear:

"During Reagan’s presidency, which lasted from 1981 to 1989, America was way more dangerous than it is today. In that era, there was an average of 20,377 murders a year in the U.S. There were 14,249 in 2014, the latest year with official FBI data. Meanwhile, the U.S. population has grown from 229 million to 310 million, a 35 percent increase, driving down the per capita rates. There’s also never been a safer time to be a child in America, and while an average of 101 police officers were intentionally killed every year during Reagan’s presidency, the annual number is just 62 under Obama — the lowest recorded amount."

I think Lacob is going to throw the works at KD.  I think he and Myers have some plans hidden up their sleeves that they haven't even told Kerr about.  And they'll share them with KD at their meeting and he will be really in a tough place to say no to them, though I think in his heart he would rather stay in OKC.  So I am not betting on him coming to Golden State, but I wouldn't bet against it either.  It's going to be interesting.

Yes I can't disagree with you. As much as I hate Clay Bennet for scamming the people of Seattle, KD's place seems to be OKC. His legacy, as you say, will be greater if he stays loyal to that smaller market. Also, could make for a great rivalry for years to come.
