Dedicated to my ‘Homegirl’ Estella. Praying your recovery is swift & powerful. See you soon girl!

~ This is one movie I am going to see soon as possible.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed —even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, “The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli notes that critics of the tea party movement are “all reading from the same script” when they unfairly refer to the historic lowering of the nation’s credit rating under President Obama’s watch as a “tea party downgrade.” On the 8/10/11 edition of “Freedom Watch” with Andrew Napolitano on the Fox Business Network, Deneen points out to Judge Andrew Napolitano that the downgrade by Standard and Poor’s came from excessive spending and “Obama’s failed policies” that are the opposite of what is advocated by tea partiers. Obama and his supporters are trying to pin blame on the tea party movement because they are “challenging every move [liberals in power] make” and hope to damage the movement’s credibility.

Bret Baier pressed former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty about his economic plan, which he claims would grow the economy by an average of rate of 5 percent per year for ten years. With the last two quarters averaging less than 1 percent growth, Bret asked Pawlenty if his proposal was “pie in the sky”?

Pawlenty responded, saying the U.S. needs a growth target, but he posed another question—where’s Barack Obama’s plan on these issues? He said, “You can’t find his plan on some of the most pressing financial issues of our country. For example, where’s Barack Obama’s plan on social security reform, Medicare reform, Medicaid reform?

In fact, I’ll offer a prize tonight, to anybody in this auditorium or anyone watching on television. If you can find Barack Obama’s specific plan on any of those items, I will come to your house and cook you dinner. Or, if you prefer, I’ll come to your house and mow your lawn. “

Then, turning to fellow candidate Mitt Romney, Pawlenty said, “But in case Mitt wins, I’m limiting it to one acre.”

It’s about time a Republican candidate slammed the liberal media for asking bogus ‘gotcha’ questions of the candidates rather than substantial policy questions. Newt went after Chris Wallace tonight for his outrageous tabloid questioning of the candidates. Awesome!
