    Agenda: Grinding Down of America

    ------- When Idaho Legislator Curtis Bowers wrote a "letter to the editor" about the drastic changes in America's culture, it became the feature story on the evening news, people protested at the Capitol, and for weeks the local newspapers were filled with responses. He realized then... he'd hit on something. Ask almost anyone and you'll hear, "Communism is dead! The Berlin Wall came down." Thought the word communism isn't used anymore, this film will show the ideas behind it are alive and well. Join Bowers for a fascinating look at the people and groups that have successfully targeted America's morality and freedom in their effort to grind America down. It's a well documented AGENDA. http://www.amazon.com/Agenda-Grinding-America-Curtis-Bowers/dp/B003Z3CZGG ------ Anyone ever watched this? I am still close to a family from my fundie(lite?) days and we are both usually pretty good about avoiding things we disagree about. But alas, last night during dinner we watched this. I don't even have words...it's something. #getyourtinfoil
  2. I thought this was an interesting article: http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/03/14/world/asia/india-jarawas-child-murder.html?_r=0&referer= The TL;DR version is that the Jawara tribe is an isolated indigenous tribe living in India. Not wanting to repeat the mistakes of European colonialists in the Americas and Australia, the Indian government has tried to leave them alone to follow their ancient ways. However, the tribe is becoming curious about the outside world and has been having contact with poachers and traders. Unsurprisingly, some of the women are becoming pregnant. These babies are ritually sacrificed to maintain the "purity" of the tribe. Babies are also sacrificed when a widow becomes pregnant. The Indian government knows this happens, but doesn't want to interfere in the affairs of the tribe, even to save the life of a baby. What do you think? Is it worth it to save a tribal culture at the expense of individual children or vice versa?

    Miss Navajo

    This is a documentary on Netflix. Despite the streaming issues (curse you interwebs) this is a fascinating look at contemporary Navajo culture through the window of this one contest, which includes butchering a sheep as one of the skills that has to be mastered! Plus snippets of religion, daily life on some reservations (I am sure some have running water) as well as the history of the contest and its importance. (totally off topic, but I am slayed that Aidan Turner is now secretly Bill Gothard.)
  4. A great documentary from 2009 that looks at contemporary conservative Kansas as well as the socialist roots of the state. It is filmed during the 2008 elections. I definitely recommend it, free on Hulu. Has any one here seen the film? edited to add: One of the individuals in the film is a SODRT girl, who goes off to Patrick Henry, a small segment is film at PH. Mom brags on camera that PH has more interns working in the White House than Harvard... You go get to see inside shots of the Creation Museum This pretty much provided the sum total of the film's humor. Within the CM there is one shot of a female robotic that, I swear has Jingers eyes and hair. I almost spewed I was laughing so hard. If you are looking for the radical history of Kansas in this film you won't find it here. If you want to learn about some of it including the Populist movement this film gives you good jumping off points. It's well filmed and edited.
