True, true.. I remember how united we Americans all were during the Bush years.. it was one for all

and all for one!

Ah W... how you inspired and led us, united in a grand
vision of freedom, thousands of points of light, all
that stuff.

And then BOOM! Obama becomes president and
all of a sudden everyone is fighting, and cranky, going
every whichaway, no direction, shutting down the
government, shooting up schools, marrying gay people,
taking Krokodil ..

the other side of that.. when people live lives of cheat and deceit

They become frightened people.
It is a terrifying way to live, as a liar.

It invokes an unconscious terror.
People may be cheery and bold on
the outside, but there is gnawing
unease, disease, for liars.

Truth itself becomes frightening. Dark vague
shadows, made of lies, haunt the psyche.

The drug for fear is religion.

Put all the responsibiilty on a God of
one's own invention.

Then you don't have to face yourself.

They don't get the concept of natural law,

Looking for the name of a film I saw many years ago.

It's a very underground sort of film, centered around
two transgender female->male -- I am not sure the
correct way to describe them, except extraordinary --

One of them was born a little girl but seemingly
raised (very lovingly) almost as a son and grew
up identifying with the heroism of Superman.

It's a really powerful film, I saw it twice but for the
life of me can not remember the title. Any help
appreciated, and if you haven't seen it, find it.
