2016 Republican Presidential Hopefuls

By my count, there are still 20 legitimate candidates for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination, let's count:
  1. Mitt Romney
  2. Jeb Bush
  3. Rand Paul
  4. Ted Cruz
  5. Mike Huckabee
  6. Chris Christie
  7. Marco Rubio
  8. Rick Santorum
  9. Scott Walker
  10. Bobby Jindal
  11. John Bolton
  12. Dr Ben Carson
  13. Peter King
  14. Lindsey Graham
  15. Rick Perry
  16. Mike Pence
  17. John Kasich
  18. Donald Trump
  19. Sarah Palin
  20. Carly Fiorina 
That's a lot of names, perhaps it's time they narrow that down a bit don't you think?  As a Democrat, it's nice to see because none of them stand a chance at beating Hillary Clinton.  Just saying.

TPSG Top 10 Movies of 1983

Continuing with my look at the best movies of years gone by.

Top 10 Movies of 1983:
  1. Scarface - Al Pacino, Michelle Pfieffer
  2. Trading Places - Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd
  3. Return of the Jedi - Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford
  4. Risky Business - Tom Cruise, Rebecca De Mornay
  5. Bad Boys - Sean Penn, Esai Morales
  6. Silkwood - Meryl Streep, Kurt Russell
  7. All the Right Moves - Tom Cruise, Lea Thompson
  8. The Right Stuff - Sam Shepard, Scott Glenn
  9. Terms of Endearment - Shirley MacLaine, Debra Winger
  10. A Christmas Story - Peter Billingsley, Darren McGavin
What a great year for the movies.  I'll never forget Al Pacino as Tony Montana in "Scarface".  "Trading Places" is one of Eddie Murphy's funniest films, it's also the film that made me fall in love with Jamie Lee Curtis.  What sci-fi geek didn't like "Return of the Jedi"?  What kid didn't want to party like Tom Cruise in "Risky Business"?  "Bad Boys" was a brutal look at a youth detention center, and who can forget that Cola to the face scene?  "Silkwood" was an inspiration and Meryl Streep was fantastic in it. "All the Right Moves" is a great high school football movie. "The Right Stuff" is a great story about America's space program.  "Terms of Endearment" still pulls at the heartstrings all these years later.  "A Christmas Story" is my all time favorite Christmas movie.
