This last Thursday, the Romney Campaign released a video which used the failure of a local barbecue chain as a metaphor for the economic struggles of small businesses in the United States during the Obama administration. In the video, company owner and Republican activist, Rhoda Elliot blames President Barack Obama for failing to deliver the change he promised in 2008, which inevitably lead to his company’s downfall.
This video presents a serious ethical issue. Instead of keeping the campaign video professional and supported with facts, Romney approves a video negatively campaigning Barack Obama. This is especially disturbing due to the fact that real evidence suggests that the company was in trouble before the president took office. It seems as though some candidates intend to win by any means necessary, even if those means are unethical.
As Election Day draws nearer, candidates seem to be showing their true colors. Actions speak louder than words and the actions of Romney and his staff really show me the character behind the candidate. Not once did Obama approve a mudslinging attack on Romney, he doesn’t need to. I believe the President is counting on his integrity shining through and come Election Day, he will be given another four years.
The Walking Dead is everything one could ask for in a zombie show. Currently in it’s 3rd season, The Walking Dead continues to be the most watched drama in basic cable history. In this post-apocalyptic world, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors must not only fight the dead, but also face a whole new fear: the living.
In the highly anticipated new season, Rick and his fellow survivors continue to seek refuge. Soon they discover that there are greater forces to fear than just the walking dead: prison inmates, a pregnant companion and separation from the group. With no character safe, the struggle to survive has never been so perilous.
I highly recommend this show to all of my friends. AMC has done it literally done it again. After success with Mad Men and Breaking Bad, AMC pulls off another must see show. The Walking Dead is fast pace and always keeps you on your toes. One of my good friends personally vouched for this show and I had to give it a chance. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
If you want to truly build a relationship with the characters, I suggest starting with the first season. It doesn’t take long to get into the action, I promise. Also, you can’t really appreciate what all these characters have been through until you’ve seen it yourself. This show is on Netflix and Hulu. No excuses! This is a suspensful thriller for adults. Be an adult.
