What is America Being Made Into..?

MV5BOTA2NjI3ODExNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjU3OTE5MDE@__V1_UY190_CR8,0,128,190_AL_Interestingly we have all watched the horror movies since the beginning of our very lives! When was the last time you or anyone you know gone to the Internet Movie Database (imdb) and if only for a moment just looked into the Horror Section?

It is even more phenomenal for me to look at the particular actors and actresses and seen what their real accomplishments have been say, into the Arts, Business, Social Sciences, and Medicine.

The point that is trying to be made here is that Boris Karloff, Betty Davis, Robert England, Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price, are recognized as one of the true icons of horror cinema, and the actor most closely identified with the general public’s perception of the “monster” from the classic Mary Shelley book, “Frankenstein” is Boris Karloff.
The irony about these thespians is that they lived almost dual lives. Most of them achieved high statuses in other fields.

It is also quite well-known that many of today’s stars or celebrities got their original startsMV5BMzc3NjEwNTM1MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDU2NzI5NA@@__V1_UX128_CR0,0,128,190_AL_ in some form of horror or thriller film.

I know that there have been extremely bizarre debates as well as arguments that deal with the film’s rating which as I’m sure you are aware of that the more blood, female skin, graphics, and the like, the more the film must be edited to receive a “good housekeeping” rating.

This genre of film works tremendously in the United States. For reasons that are unbeknownst to me since many of the characters, stories, and scenes come from different cultures living mostly in Europe.

So what does all of this have to do with the U.S.A. and what the country is being made into? Actually, or for the most part, nothing. For anyone that argues I would say that the slasher films or horror films are definitely part of the American culture.

Actually what concerns me is that the USA is a Judeo-Christian based culture; I know that there are some that would love to argue this point — but so, so sorry. There is no argument.

MV5BMTM3NjA1NDMyMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDQzNDMzOQ@@__V1_UY190_CR0,0,128,190_AL_People say that there are difficulties with guns — is it guns or is it people? Same thing with crime. Speaking of incarceration and the disparities’ that seem too lopsided and I will argue that people are either not looking at the truth or, our system of laws is being too manipulated or, legislation is certainly in the wrong hands. Why should we as a nation, leave the sentencing criteria up to the House or Senate or both? These people do not know sentencing because they are rich and privileged.

Finally if the law states that for a “Third Conviction” a person gets life imprisonment, then anyone disputing that claim should not call for a change in sentencing guidelines (that’s discrimination!) but rather should be challenging the guidelines. One way or another it is always going to come back to the person who committed the crime. Guns, drugs, murder, etc., if the penalty is strong enough without exceptions then the crimes will drop like bricks.
