Politics bumps heads with Hollywood. Isn’t revenge sweet?

The Butler

By: Nelson Abdullah  –  Conscience of a Conservative – Cross-Posted at the NoisyRoom

This past week just about every movie critic and Hollywood reporter has commented about the 71st annual Golden Globes nominations noticeable snub of the 2012 film “Lee Daniels’ The Butler (Kindle)”. It was only after reading in today’s newspaper the latest hand-wringing from Jessica Herndon of the Associated Press, that it became clear. Ms. Herndon wrote: “Yet the annual picks by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are typically questioned and this season is no exception. A rundown of snubs: “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” Isn’t Oprah supposed to have a built-in value with the film community?” Maybe the mainstream news media is looking in the wrong place for the explanation. Or maybe they are afraid to admit the truth. Maybe there is a strong undercurrent of anger behind it.

A few months ago, when the ObamaCare fiasco hit the fans, there were several stories in the news about entire groups of Hollywood trades people either loosing their health insurance coverage or facing enormous premiums that used to be paid by the trade unions or the film companies. This was all faulted on the definition of their type of employment. Resentment runs deep and maybe the first person they recalled was Oprah Winfrey and the effused support that she gave to help elect Barack Hussein Obama. Her wealthy support of this Marxist/Socialist Democrat made her the figurehead of his Hollywood campaign. So perhaps, the snub of Oprah and her movie is a form of payback. And what may be more worrisome to Democrats everywhere is that same resentment being held by every American for what was done to them with this Democrat-created healthcare mess and what will happen next November on election day.

The worst is yet to come and they are now saying that on January 1st millions of people will find themselves with no health insurance coverage at all.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
