Greg Schwem invites Twitter users to submit their own PEOTUS holiday movie ideas with the hashtag #NameaTrumpXmasMovie. Follow Greg @Greg Schwem Say what you want about Twitter; no social media platform encourages the world's creativity and comedic tendencies quite like a clever hashtag and 140 characters. See last weekend's kerfuffle following the Hamilton curtain call, when a cast member from the Broadway smash musical delivered a prepared message to performance patron and Vice President-elect Mike Pence on immigration and diversity. Pence, critics argue, is a fierce opponent of both, judging from an assortment of his policies while governing Indiana. Within hours, the hashtag #NameaPenceMusical was trending and the social media world piled on, with suggestions ranging from the hilarious ("The Book of More White Men") to the angry and pointed ("Rent ... But Only to Straight People"). Thoroughly entertained by such variety, I spent the weekend refreshing my Twitter feed ...

Reclaiming the Christmas Spirit: Ten Great Christmas Movies to Help You Shake the Police State Blues

What a turbulent year it's been. For those of us who have managed to survive 2015 with our lives intact and our freedoms hanging by a thread, it has been a year of crackdowns, clampdowns, shutdowns, showdowns, shootdowns, standdowns, knockdowns, putdowns, breakdowns, lockdowns, takedowns, slowdowns, meltdowns, and never-ending letdowns. As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we've been held up, stripped down, faked out, photographed, frisked, fracked, hacked, tracked, cracked, intercepted, accessed, spied on, zapped, mapped, searched, shot at, tasered, tortured, tackled, trussed up, tricked, lied to, labeled, libeled, leered at, shoved aside, saddled with debt not of our own making, sold a bill of goods about national security, tuned out by those representing us, tossed aside, and taken to the cleaners. After endless months of being mired in gloom and doom, we now find ourselves just a few weeks away from Christmas, struggling to latch on ...

The Unexpected Wisdom Of Kevin McCallister
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Once, in the John Hughes-imagined suburbs of Chicago, a young boy awoke in December to find out that he made his family disappear. If you can't picture that iconic line whispered in the voice of Macaulay Culkin circa 1990, then I can't help you. But if you can -- nay, if the mere suggestion of the original "Home Alone" made John Williams' compositions start playing in your head, and made you pull out the aftershave for your most realistic "AHHHH!" face, then welcome. Culkin gave the performance of his career thus far in this film (to be topped, some argue, in "Home Alone 2") as a precocious personification of id: all animal emotion ("I'm living alone! I'm living alone!") and speaking without thinking ("I hope I never see any of you jerks again!"). It was a performance that delighted '90s kids, a fact confirmed once more in the dark Long Island theater where I sat last Sunday, surrounded by youngsters who fell into fits at each moment of random violence that befell the Wet ...
