Shake That Thing !!! ....A Call to Arms

Thanksgiving in Indianapolis

Background:  The Movie Hoosiers 
(Wikipedia)

The film is very loosely based on the story of the 1954 Indiana state championsMilan High School (/ˈmaɪlən/ MY-lən), but the term "inspired by a true story" may be more appropriate, as there was little the two teams had in common.[4]

In most U.S. states, high school athletic teams are divided into different classes, usually based on the number of enrolled students, with separate state championship tournaments held for each classification. At the time, Indiana conducted a single state basketball championship for all of its high schools and continued to do so until 1997.[4]

Some elements of the film do match closely with those of Milan's real story. Like the film's fictional "Hickory High School", Milan was a very small high school in a rural, southern Indiana town. Both schools had undersized teams. Both Hickory and Milan won the state finals by two points: Hickory won 42–40, and Milan won 32–30. The final seconds of the Hoosiers state final hold fairly closely to the details of Milan's 1954 final; the final shot in the film was taken from virtually the same spot on the floor as Bobby Plump's actual game-winner. The film's final game was shot in the same building that hosted the 1954 Indiana final, Butler University's Hinkle Fieldhouse (called Butler Fieldhouse in 1954) in Indianapolis.[4]

However, unlike the film's plot, the 1954 Milan High School basketball team came into the season as heavy favorites and finished the '53-'54 regular season at 19–2. In addition, the previous 1952–1953 team went to the state semi-finals, and they were considered a powerhouse going into the championship season despite the school's small enrollment.[4]

What Happened to My Democratic Party...

A word to the Elites who stole my Democratic Party that only yesterday excelled in economic and social justice but now recklessly and coquettishly proselytizes for the ancient menace of SODOMY and the SID-VICIOUS  practice of yanking from nascent human life the inalienable rights bestowed and bestowable only by our Creator--these political bums seek to smear dissenters like me with highfaluting sold-out psychological phobic aspersions.  Let me make very clear what I fear....I fear YOU and your ALLEY-CAT prostitution of LIBERTY. !!!!

Our Hearts Go On




Today Connie and I saw again the movie TITANIC. 

The ship TITANIC had First Class passengers which were afforded every luxury and steeped in empty and conventional rituals resounding with the endless chatter of hackneyed ideas.  Steerage was characterized by average folk filled with true joy and celebrating life with authenticity.

I would like to suggest something similar is a strong motif in American politics. In this context the privileged elite act and feel vastly superior to the average folk who hate like hell when the elite parade and promulgate values strongly at odds with “Steerage” traditions and values.  Especially sticking in the craw of the low-life are the elite’s wide acceptance of absurdities--a human fetus is not human and its entire legitimacy as a developing human depends upon the whim of new-age doctrinaire feminists. They also refuse to understand that sodomy demands full and unquestioned acceptance.  Also the low-life steerage have difficulty understanding how one’s basic purpose in life often seen as religious conviction must now in America be delimited within tiny private cubicles. The steerage low-life sees as its only hope sufficient appointments of Conservative judges to right the ship.


Please note in the movie true love has nothing in common with manipulative marriages executed for repressive hollow conformity.  On viewing the movie, couples can cry when they see love committed even to the ready acceptance of death when necessary to affirm and protect loved ones with unlimited charity .  

In the movie’s final scene one sees the entire cast standing in applause for humanity's stand-in couple. They appreciate the manifestation of that love most divine and essential for carrying forward the human enterprise within the glow of our prized ultimate enlightenment.
