Trump: Basically Abdicated

Trump gave someone a Medal of Freedom, then up and left in a pout without saying anything.

So, Trump has basically abdicated at this point. Is, uh, anyone actually in charge of the government right now?

Re: ‘Split Second’

That’s not Judge Reinhold.

I saw this back when it came out and have spent the last 20-some years thinking it was Rutger Hauer and Judge Reinhold in this movie. Whoops.

That there’s some good in this world…

…and it’s worth fighting for.

Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.

Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness, and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.
