So, I am watching events of the last week with Trump winning again and again, as well putting together a pretty amazing cabinet.
Then I read some whiny artivle about BIG guns surrounding Trump Tower and my thoughts raced to the movie Battleship.
The last Epic 5 minutes with music and visuals of the Old Men of America enlisting their help to the new young Men and leaders and uniting in a common mission of defeating the enemy. In this case, some undocumented aliens from outerspace.
This is Winning at it's finest and Trump just continues to win and so does America.
It isn't a new Morning in America again, It's Trump message I'm With You!!! Let's win and I will lead that charge! Follow Me!!!
So, Make America Great Again and let's leave it all on the floor as Free Men, our attitude is Fervency and we work with zeal, expecting extraordinary results.
Hold that dream close to your heart and your minds eye. It is that reason you are working.
Never give up on your dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway, so spend your time in pursuit of who you want to be and how you will feel when you arrive
And now for a few quick videos to inspire you - - Turn up the Volume!!

The drop anchor scene is pure suspension of disbelief.
(That ship would never slew about like some fishing skiff. Probably part the anchor chain and/or tell the hell out of the forepeak.)
Battleship Sniper Scene
I liked that movie.
Goofy, but upbeat.
It’s a freaking movie.
We both know that anchor would simply drag along the ocean floor tearing everything up.
The movie overdid it, but things like that can be done. The USS Currituck did a famous reverse course on the Mekong river in Vietnam near Saigon. She did a deliberate bow run aground and let the momentum carry the stern around... reversing course to go downstream.
Every now and then, navy guys do amazing things. Mostly not, but lord when they do... it’s huge. (Affectionately)
A sea plane tender?
But it was fun to watch...((:O))
Space alien ships with the capabilities to travel light years and massive battlements but they forget bullet proof glass on the windshield. Someone’s going to lose their job back on the home planet...
It was fun indeed.
Great Navy promo.
(...and the Arleigh Burke props hitting rock bottom makes me think the reduction gearing just jumped out of its mounts and flew out through the hull.)
Am I the only one who thought that the aliens in this movie looked like “Uncle Sam”? (You can’t see it in this clip, but the one they captured and took the suit off of sure did!)
Otherwise (suspension of laws of gravity aside) it was an entertaining movie.
The force field of course is right out of “Independence Day”.
Being a huge fan of WW2 battleships, I actually came up with a very similar idea for a movie a couple of years earlier, right down to the force field around Hawaii. (Since I kept the idea to myself, I can’t claim they stole my idea unless it was through telepathy).
There was one variation in my movie - instead of the Missouri, the battleship that defeats the aliens in a duel is the Yamato - which in my alternate historical timeline idea was captured and displayed as a trophy at Pearl Harbor. (In my movie, 60 years later the ship has just been made operational to be returned as a gift to Japan, hence her ability to sail. - I know, I know - but at least I came up with a plausible explanation as to why a relic would be operational. The Missouri is NOT operational and would require billions of dollars and years to be made operational again. Anyhow, the shells are found stored offsite and brought back to the ship before the final battle - about as likely as the scenario in this movie.)
And I can guarantee you that had my idea been made into a movie, it would have done MUCH better than this movie did ... IN JAPAN. :>)
If you’ve made it this far I give you a link to my non-profit historical website on the real Battleship Yamato:
Very fun movie. I was in the front row of a moviecon event and enjoyed the panel discussion of the actors and director. I will not tell you the effect Brooklyn Decker had on the males in the audience.
I think you guys aren’t clicking my pics.
That is my opener
That and the scene immediately before that where the young guy is listing out the litany of reasons why the plan will never work.
That scene says so much about the generations....
I loved watching the old salts bringing the ship back to life.
