Cowboy films

Just lately my hubby has started watching a lot of cowboy films that I really do not enjoy very much. Yes there are occasions when something comes on the TV which I think is interesting (like Dances with Wolves), but mainly I get bored with them. The old ones are very formulaic and modern ones are very violent and brutal. What’s the point of watching them. They are not my history, and yet there are so many of them. I’d like to watch a decent film about British history occasionally. I do realise that Hollywood has a huge influence over the world. But the constant pushing of gun slinging, murdering, bandits and corrupt government officials just bores and depresses me. Guns are not a solution, they are weapons that should be locked away. Gunfight films just perpetuate the dangers of them.

Russians violence continues

They sent missiles into Ukraine last night and struck over 1000 targets. Its frightening and Putin is accusing the UK of threatening to bomb Russia. Is Putin mad? What the hell is he doing. These are war crimes. Civilians killed, women raped and murdered, ordinary people shot in the back of the head. At least 205 children killed and two thirds of children displaced within the country. This is senseless. If you are a Russian reading this, think about it. Your soldiers are murdering innocent people. Why? Its crazy and stupid. We see the photos. It’s not a surgical strike. You are destroying Ukraine. Stop it.
