Several weeks ago I had to visit one of the local Social Security offices - a few white faces, senior citizens. The rest of the crowd? Immigrants, some could communicate in English well, others sounded FOB. Or fresh off the airplane. What were they doing there? You can guess. Everyone is out for his "share" of the pie.
The female security guard... "nice" but definitely looked butch and uhmerican. And packing a pistol. What stereotypes?
But are all sports created equal? Or are some more "human" than others? Or should we be concerned overall, well-rounded [functional] fitness, rather than in excelling in one sort of movement? Is it possible for certain forms of extreme physical fitness in women to ruin their physical attractiveness? I think so, especially when it has an impact on their body fat percentage. (Then there is the stunted growth of female gymnasts.)
Not to mention immigration and the pursuit of wealth - these are all at work in Silicon Valley, but gentrification is taking place elsewhere, notably San Francisco. How much longer before it leaps across the Bay Bridge into the East Bay? Small wonder those in government are engaged in social engineering, coming up with solutions for problems that they've created because of their adherence to liberal capitalism.
Where does that leave those who are 'native' to the state but cannot find employment in tech companies or high-paying service jobs (plumbing)?
DETAILS: For a Brit, you play a lot of Americans.
Christian Bale: I'm English, but America has been my home for half my life now, and I see Russell, for example, as someone who isn't represented very much: good old America at its peak. Someone who stays and is loyal and has to endure and take care, who is really having to take a look at his priorities and his loved ones and his loved town. And that's a very important part of it—the loved town. I've never had that. I've always moved around a lot, so I'm jealous when I see people who have an attachment to a place.
