Amerika

Something today made me think of an old mini-series from 1987 about a Soviet occupation of America. A mini-series I hadn't thought about in years.

I am going to have to obtain, review and think about this one.





What's really sad about this movie is that so many of the stars that were in it never really listened to the speeches and words of their own characters. I wonder if that happens with movie stars where their lines go from their script to their mouth without passing through their mind.

Shoprat, for most of them there's nothing in their head to stop it.

Shoprat, when you find that let me know. I don't even recall that, but then again I don't remember a lot of things from the eighties.

Blessings.

But, they'd be AMerican born!? (we THINK, that is!) :0)

We're losing, Shoprat, we're simply losing. Too many people are weak minded, weak physically, greedy, ignorant, narcissistic.

But wait: I hear our Wake Up Call. It's coming. . .

I'm afraid when the wake-up call becomes clear enough for most people to notice, they'll just hit the snooze alarm again.

I didn't see this miniseries and don't see it at NetFlix.

But the trailer does seem prophetic, doesn't it?

chuck sadly that seems to be the case.

IHS & AOW It can be purchased for about 25 dollars at Amazon.

Z It hasn't come true yet.

Ducky It's happening, just not by a foreign occupation.

BZ and Joe The wake up call better be soon.
