I've met several extras or as they prefer, background actors.  They are the people you see in certain scenes, walking past, around eating at other tables etc while the principles are engaged in action/dialog. 

Often, especially in restaurant scenes, background actors can be scene to be quite mobile.  They make gestures and talk animatedly.  A smart director narrows focus.  A smart extra keeps it toned down.

Look everywhere and so many in show biz, politics everywhere, are clamoring for attention.

Some are worth it, most are nt.  I avoid a lot of it, personally and professionally, unless I have something to say and/or I won't mention names nor circumstances, there is enough 'attention' -s-.  Decide for yourself what's is worthy of yours.

Chitchat is ok, but it should be brief and lead to other things.

Attention can be gotten without stripping or yelling. Some people have 'it' or they don't.  Some people think position is enough.  Nope.  Content of character and message count.

So be subjective and don't bust a gasket

October is rolling in.  The TROLLS are coming...

Lincoln Or Churchill

There was some flap about ridding the Oval Office of a bust of Churchill and replacing it with one of Lincoln.  Don't make it more than it is.  The bust was on loan and returned.  There is a bust of Churchill in the White House.  Lincoln did take residence in the OO.

Got me to thinking of who would I rather be looking at while doing the People's work, Lincoln or Churchill?

Examine them both and you will find human beings.  Flawed people make mistakes.  I'm also cautioned to beware the cult of personality.  It's results that count.  As Scripture says, 'By their fruits ye shall know them'.

Heads of state in times of war.  Rough decisions and sacrifice.

Lincoln had a fanboy named Karl Marx.  I have theories re Marxism at the time.  I believe they backed Lincoln and the Union.  A strong state would be easier to compromise and bring to world communism.  The Confederacy in spite of the outgoing slavery angle, was the Constitutional state.  Such independence would be a tough nut for the commies to crack.

Churchill played footsie with Stalin.  FDR was of course, much worse.

However, Sir Winston played a longer game.  He was effective and decisive during the war, but he was discarded til the 50s, for his expertise were brought to bear during the Cold War.

A collectivist in the Oval Office might like to have Marx's working class hero (who instituted a state which increasingly became compromised as it absorbed more and more power) as a reminder of the Goal.  It has slid to socialism and worse in the US.

Churchill is a reminder that there is an indomitable spirit of Freedom afoot, whereas Lincoln created a nest of tyranny.  There could be arguments otherwise perhaps, but these are my analyses.

Lincoln seemed to balk his masters and banking became an issue.  Did he want to reform and btw help the South?  We will never know.  The country was fractured and his death assured division that lasts in some forms to this day.

It is easier to control people divided.

Churchill, in spite of compromise, could be a wild card.

England has sunk into abysmal socialism and worse now with jihadist incursion.

I bet a leader like Churchill would have put the kibosh on the evil threatening our whole world.

A red diaper baby in the Oval Office would not want someone even symbolically like that around.

If I were President (no aspirations lol), gazing at the bust of a wild card who warned the world of what was coming would inspire me as I went about my job serving my people.

Small gestures can have significant sublevel meaning.  But I suggest we keep our eyes on the prize, ie, Restoring the Republic.

Civilization Vs Humanity

Actually both words have been misappropriated and used to equate collectivism.  The old switcheroo that if we are civilized we don't need guns for instance.  For the sake of humanity disarm ad nauseum.  I'd like to look at these words head to head.

Responsibility, another twisted word comes to mind.  Well, anything can be turned around to fit the collectivist matrix.  Don't let that stop you from truthfully using words. 

Civilization seems to mean a structured state with people answerable to whomever is in charge.  It has gotten away from accumulated culture, law and morals in favor of whatever the state says cultural, historical or moral.

Humanity is a tearjerker bleeding heart word meant to trigger thoughtless emotion.  We are meant to have conscience.  But we must see things as they truly are.  Evil hides in good intentions. 

Real civilization balances what we've learned with what we need/want to do.  Learning from mistakes, we strive to seek Freedom and Restore the Republic.  THAT'S civilization.

Real humanity indeed is heart.  Loving , caring and a willingness to fight for what's good and decent.

Head vs heart?  Or do we balance these?   Do we turn around hijacked terms and hold (not cling) to light?

It can be cold state versus decency, tyranny opposed to Liberty.

Or they can comprise a double edged sword which cuts through the red tape, the miasma of doubt and fear.

It is an opportunity to face ourselves and others.

Psycho Rising

I'm reminded of opportunities watching The Walking Dead.  The scenario lends itself to some elemental situations where one has to **** or get off the pot.  Figure those out for yourselves -s-.

I'm particularly thinking of 'triggers' or circumstances which allow the veneer to be stripped away, presenting what lies underneath.

A lot of people plod hrough life uneventfully.  Nothing is particularly significant.  They may never reach a potential.  Until, until events align that throw them into action.

The Governor on TWD is a negative example.  He had a middling job, wife and daughter.  He complained of the college boy genius who was his superior.

Now I will say sometimes there are those 'supervisors' who do not meet expectations/potential.  Or those ho assume the reins who screw up what was established.

That aside, The Governor was prezombie holocaust a psychopath in check.  The opportunity never upped him as it were. 

Then devastation and deprivation rose.  His psychopathy rose.  So it may go in real life.

I'm not fretting about below the surface loons champing at the bit to wreak havoc.  There will always be opportunists waiting in the wings.  Need I say look at Congress, Oval Office or Chicago mayors office?

THEY need to worry.  Indeed the monsters actions to stifle Freedom speak for themselves.

The tide turns.  The opportunity presents itself.

As psychos rise ie Stalin Hitler the current occupier of the Oval Office, so too rise opposition.

Heroes, though they never declare themselves such, meet the challenge, into the fray.

It could be the most unlikely.
