Monsters vs Aliens: a clever short excerpt .

Watched the DreamWorks film, Monsters vs Aliens with the grandsons, and I found this short part that was pretty cool, I thought. The President is going to try and communicate with the Aliens, and starts off with the 'Close Encounters of The Third Kind' short tune, and then goes into a jazzy funky thing.

Monsters vs Aliens as a whole was very witty, and well done, and fun to watch, with a few close to ungodly lines. Why do they have to do that? Oh well, it was nice to watch with the grandsons, as they are staying over for the next week while their Mom and Dad are in Hawaii, on business and pleasure.

I liked that movie, too. It's funny to see the Secret Service bobbing their heads ever so conservatively as the Commander in Chief is totally "busting a move!"

On a more somber note: Do you remember when we were children and the Presidency was an office that was highly esteemed? These days, there is more pundit fodder than honor.

Noce to see you sister.

I agree Craver. We say, "Do you see what Bush did now!"
Or we say, "Obama is crazy!"

Not that they have earned a whole lot of respect, but we do need to show the respect due.

"Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme [or president and congress], or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor [or president]." 1 Peter 2:13-17
