It is clips like this one that make you pray that everyone under the sun has seen something as truthful as what Jon Stewart exposes here. They are few and far between but there are people on television actually saying what everyone else is afraid to say. They are actually showing, in plain view, for all to see, the extreme and blatant hypocrisy of the Republican Party. The one thing this party excels at is their Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ability to make the American public think they are whomever they claim to be at the moment! It is offensive that this party treats the general public as if they are that dumb, to not remember things that they've clung to as political tactics for the last 19 months. The HORROR this country will find itself in, if we choose not to look at the facts, and we focus on the images that are forced down our throats!

Are we the only one's who recognize Mtv's reality series "Run's House" as the new Cosby Show? The show carries the moral fiber of what has been missing in television since the great era of: The Cosby's, Sever's, Tanner's and Hogan's. Each episode includes a life lesson that patriarch Rev Run clarifies at the end of the episode. We couldn't love the show more...the hip-hop Cosby's give us hope for a return of good television!
While being interviewed on a local Las Vegas music show, Beyonce's baby sister experiences how a miscommunication can ruin a conversation. Hopefully the interviewer was able to chat with Solange afterwards to show she had no ill intentions!
We all know Don Cheadle is that rare form of actor that actually studies his craft and continues to improve with each film. His newest film "Traitor" is no different. For those of you who are new to Two Cents aka Cash and Cam our rating system is based on how much of two cents a film deserves. "Traitor" most definitely gets two whole cents. At this point in our society every film that references the Middle East is completely predictable. This film is different, mostly due in part to Cheadle's performance. It is so simple to always play the extreme character, the one who is crazy, disabled, stutters, etc...the most difficult roles to master are those that explore the complications of the everyday person. Cheadle masters this beautifully. Not only does he fall naturally into any dialect or language, including Arabic, he never exaggerates the role and becomes a caricature. This film is highly recommended!!!
