“This is a satire in that some elements are imaginary or mocking. It is a documentary in that many of the facts and names are true and proven. It is a feature film in that it entertains, amuses and educates at the same time. It is a fantasy in that some exaggerations or inventions are included.
Most of all it is different. Clear and crisp on a SuperScreen, it could have been a big budget Hollywood movie with a team of hundreds behind it. But it was made for nothing, with a few friends contributing, using the video facility on the iPhone, the Final Cut Pro facility on a laptop, a cheap drone given as a Christmas present by a loving parent and only Righteous Indignation composing the script.
Society should not condone and sanction laws, behaviour and actions which can lead to miscarriages of justice or even death.”
“GUILTY is a feature film which claims to be a satirical documentary; from the start it mocks corporate film making, conventional documentary habits and accepted attitudes. It is also No Budget – not just LOW Budget – made by friends using iPhones, Final Cut Pro and a drone given as a Christmas gift by parents. As an Indie Movie it breaks new ground and stretches the envelope, as Cliche Clara would say. It includes catchy songs, outrageous ideas, controversial attitudes and is unlike any other film except, perhaps, the earlier Vile Pervert: The Musical.”
I just wanted to say…Jonathan King is among my living heroes…and I LOVE Univarsehole…um…”Studio”?…

“The media is not happy with Donald Trump. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell (D) spoke out late Wednesday after President Trump attacked her late husband, longtime Congressman John Dingell (D-Mich.), at a rally following the House’s impeachment vote.
Just hours after Trump suggested that John Dingell was “looking up” instead of down, Debbie Dingell tweeted that the president’s comments hurt her “in a way you can never imagine.”
“Mr. President, let’s set politics aside. My husband earned all his accolades after a lifetime of service,” said Dingell, whose husband served in Congress for nearly 60 years and died in February.

“This 105-question Personality Style Test will allow you to obtain your scores on all of the 15 personality styles. The personality styles represent a dynamic and more fluid aspect of the personality than the more structural properties measured by the Jung Type Test or the Big Five Test.
In taking the test it is normal for well-functioning individuals to feel as if several of the items apply to them. However, for optimum results, DO NOT click ‘Agree’ to a question unless it has been a consistent theme in your life. If you are unsure whether a given statement applies to you, select ‘Disagree.’
The “Personality Style Test” is the property of IDR Labs International but pays homage to the works of Theodore Millon, Seth Grossman, Aaron T. Beck, Arthur Freeman, and Nancy McWilliams.
While this test can help you gauge the extent of your scores on the various scales associated with the 15 personality styles, it is important to note that test scores do not necessarily translate into real-world assessments, as conducted by certified medical personnel with the respondent physically present and based on an extensive review of the respondent’s personal and family history, among other things.
As such, please note that the information provided by this website provides psychological information for educational purposes only.

Why Use This Test?
1. Free. This free online test is designed to comprehensively measure your personality style on 15 different scales and is delivered to you free of charge.
2. Comprehensive. This free online 105-question personality style test will help the respondent make sense of a wide theoretical framework, dating all the way back to Sigmund Freud and his associates. The century-old tradition of scholarship on the personality styles contains some contradictions, but this test straightens them out in order to deliver an overview of the field as a whole.
3. Made by professionals. The authors of this test are certified in the use of different personality tests and have worked professionally with typology and personality testing.
4. Clinically oriented. A common criticism of the personality descriptions yielded by Jung Type Tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and similar instruments is that their type descriptions are too positive. The feedback delivered by this instrument is designed to counteract that tendency, delivering a clear picture of the pathologies and problem areas that the respondent’s personality is liable to be susceptible to.”
“Your personality style is:
Your test scores suggest that your personality style entails: A defect in your ability to form social relationships and an under-responsiveness to all sorts of stimuli. You exhibit an intrinsic emotional “flatness” where the highs don’t get too high and the lows don’t get too low. Emotions like joy, anger, and sadness do not move you as much as they move other people. Your natural state appears to be one where you have “retired” a bit into yourself, which is one source of the calmness that characterizes your normal state. Unlike what might be expected, your passivity and lack of vitality is not a form of self-protection, but simply seems to be your natural state.”
…Dear, dear me…
I’ll have you all know, that Schizoids are the coolest!
These are all negative traits…so, you cant really take this test and come out with a result that makes you look sane.
I am a hermit of sorts…so, that’s what’s really showing up here.
I don’t get the narcissistic thing, though…I’m no narcissist…I just have a lot of humor in me…much of it self deprecating…and I ham it up [sometimes way, way up], when I come online…write, and what not.
Antisocial?…in terms of being around people, sure…But it’s not a nasty form of antisocial…In fact, it’s a rather harmless form.
Compulsive?…Yeah, that’s probably true.
Negativistic?…I don’t even know what to say to that?…Would it be more proof, if I scream “NO!”?…Not sure about this one…I fancy myself an optimist…in the broader picture.
I am avoidant…yes…guilty…
Depressive?…I’ve had a lot of depression in my lifetime…Not sure if that’s what this means, though.
Sure…I am kind of dependent…but I think most people who would have traveled my path would also be.
Schizotypal…I was doing a bit of search engin surfing on this…They claim this has a link with schizophrenia.
Well…wasn’t that a jolly bit of fun?!

“A poll of active-duty military personnel revealed very surprising results.
President Donald Trump received a loud ovation when he participated in the coin toss ahead of Saturday’s Army-Navy football rivalry game in Philadelphia. But troops’ actual feelings about the commander in chief appear much more ambivalent in the latest Military Times survey.
Half of active-duty military personnel contacted in the poll held an unfavorable view of President Trump, showing a continued decline in his approval rating since he was elected in 2016.
Trump’s 42 percent approval in the latest poll, conducted from Oct. 23 to Dec. 2, sets his lowest mark in the survey since being elected president. Some 50 percent of troops said they had an unfavorable view of him. By comparison, just a few weeks after his electoral victory in November 2016, 46 percent of troops surveyed had a positive view of the businessman-turned-politician, and 37 percent had a negative opinion.
But the latest numbers still leave Trump with a higher approval rating than former President Barack Obama when he left office in January 2017.
The numbers also show that Trump remains slightly more popular in the military community than among the American public as a whole. The latest Gallup poll had the president’s disapproval rating among the public at 54 percent, and his approval at 43 percent.
