Thread: Meryl Streep and Barack Obama: Two aspiring Role Models

  1. #1

    Default Meryl Streep and Barack Obama: Two aspiring Role Models

    Both, in their respectful communities and positions, have put holes in the glass ceiling. Both have worked to rise to the status they are at today. Both from middle class or poor families who breathed only passion, and followed every breath along the way. These are the people both millennials, and the next generation should be looking up to. Much like Hillary Clinton, who worked her way up from the daughter of a small businessman to be one of the most powerful, inspiring politician, these individuals do not come from wealth, or name recognition in Hollywood. Much like Obama's inspiring farewell address last night, or Streep's noteworthy performance at the Golden Globe awards, these are the last, intimate moments to know what it means to be American. We've gone through a period before of where it was meaningless to be a American, that period was from 2000 to 2008.

    But this thread isn't about the inevitable lack of value in being American for the next 4 years, its about looking up to inspiring, role models like Streep and Obama. Not to hate, or ridicule these elites, but to cherish and work to become like them. Their passion, and activism should be a inspiring jolt to all of us in these dark times, and work to become like them.
    America is now in a period of shame. The meaning of being a American is meaningless. We experienced this same shame when Bush was elected, now we are experiencing it again. We now have to apologize to every foreigner, foreign nation, and adversary for being a American, because in reality, our country has reached a new low in intelligence.

    Shame on us.


    Bless California, the most American state in the union.

    This is only true for people who haven't gotten over the fact Hillary lost the election.
    If the anti-gun side could not argue with fallacious appeals to emotion, ignorance and/or dishonestly, they'd be silent.

    Freedom, according to the left:
    Health care: the right you have no choice but to exercise in whatever way the federal government tells you it will accept. Resistance is taxable.

    Do you copy and paste what you like to read, or derail threads for a living?

    This is about Streep and Obama. Stay on topic.

    I fully addressed the quote I cited.
    Fully.

    Ok. Streep and Obama can ASPIRE as much as they want, BUT they will never INSPIRE. Nothing inspirational about a woman who pretends to be other people for a living and gets paid outrageously for it and a man who has divided this nation terribly and caused more harm than good...
    If you have to tell everyone how smart you are, you probably aren't.

    In the OP's defense, they are both very good actors.

    Obama's tissue moment really tore at my heart strings. Oh man I made myself laugh again.

    I just find it interesting that she could go from being one of his favorite actresses to "overrated" in less than two years. Wait, she did badmouth the messiah, right? Can't do that. Guess she learned.

    Why does your sig line have a fake quote? (Fake, as in, he never said that.)
