Haters Gonna Hate: Twilight

In the last few days all I heard people talking about was whether they hate of love Twilight. Half of the globe goes crazy jumping all over the place excited about the new movie and grieving that the Saga is over while the other half goes nuts and hates all those who have ever watched Twilight and happy that the Saga is finally over.
I read the Saga a while ago, because I got tired of everybody talking about it all the time and I wanted to know what it was. The reading was a nice pastime. By no means it was the deepest book I ever read – but it was nice to open the book and get lost in the love story for a few hours of my day – like in any other love story.
For a while now I've been thinking there might be no contradiction between lovers and haters whatsoever: the Saga is not a good vampire story describing vampires, and the Saga is a love story. Haters see the first, and lovers see the second – but both points are there!
Haters, please, go read the book and build your own opinion rather than thinking what you are supposed to think because your surrounding says so. Hating something for a good reason can be respected, hating something because you think that something is stupid without getting yourself acquainted with the piece – is, indeed, stupid.
Those who are crazy about Twilight, please, read a few more love stories. There are better love stories out there – and better quality literature. And better quality movies.
Both sides might discover something they never thought of – a proper niche for the Saga. Twilight is neither awesome, nor awful – it is just what it is – a love story. There are thousands of love stories in the world – written or unwritten – and the Saga is just one of them.


Presidents, Elections, the People, and … the Bitching.

The unbiased part:

Over the last few months/days everyone has been talking about the elections and it did not get better after the elections are over. It is kinda sad to be observing all this mess. Dear people, you are the Nation, and you are responsible for what happens to it, not the one person you call the President. And I don't mean winning/losing the elections. What you do in everyday life matters more. When one half of the country is hating the other half just because of personal beliefs – it is kinda detrimental to the society, and not effective for the economy or any social changes. People, you are the Nation, and every day you can be working at making your country better. Of course, the President holds the country together, but people is what makes the country a Nation, not the President.

The biased part:

If we talk Presidents, either candidate was smart enough to rule the country, otherwise they wouldn't have gotten there. If you don't agree with it – go try to be a president yourself.
Since the country elected Obama, half of the people are totally ecstatic, and half are expecting the apocalypse. I do think though that the apocalypse would have been more likely with Romney, who tried to override the society with imposing his religious bias on politics, which should not have anything to do with religion, but everything with keeping the country together. Yes, Obama might not be the President that appeals to the conservative part of the society, but he is not forcing everyone to be the way he wants them to be – and does not tell people should not go to church. It would be the same thing as when Romney says he wants to ban abortion and same-sex marriage. He would make half of the society feel suppressed, while Obama makes half of the society unhappy with the fact that they won't get to see gay couples laughed at. I think that the first issue would have been a much unhappier one, with the second issue being a healthy one.
