The Raisins of Wrath and the fall of progressivism

Chattering Teeth Pictures presents a first look at The Raisins of Wrath, a major motion picture still in development (in my head) and what is sure to be a blockbuster hit. The Raisins of Wrath is loosely based on John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, although it is updated for the times. Differences from the original include an underlying theme of rediscovery and empowerment of individualistic ideals over government bureaucratic control and the result is a happier ending.

PLOT DRAFT:
Barack Obama is a former migrant community organizer who became President by riding on the back of a unicorn and throwing candy canes and free condoms to the citizenry.  This film takes up around the mid-point of his second term when he is forced from his Washington D.C. Pennsylvania Avenue home by Tea Party Patriots during the new American depression he caused. He sets out along with thousands of others in search of jobs, new homes, and hope for a brighter future. Alas, poor Barack can't find any openings for a community organizer (or free health care) anywhere.

Here is a still frame from a scene in the beginning of the picture when Barry is still president, just as everything begins to unravel around him due to the collapse of his signature health care bill.

After he is removed from office, the country rejects the tyranical liberal progressive activist government and once again embraces the ideals of freedom and liberty that had originally made this county great. Almost over night the country begins to heal. The economy roars back with implementation of free market principles. With Big Government on the run with all its food stamps and other "freebies", the traditional American family takes center stage once again - with a married mom and dad taking their children to church to give thanks to God. The sun begins to shine on this country's face once again.

I'm still working on the ending, but rest assured it will be inspired by that "I'll be there" speech made famous by the late, great Henry Fonda in the 1940 original...

I envision Obama giving the following speech towards picture's end when he realizes his utopic progressive ideology is doomed to the trash heap of history (where it has always landed)

OBAMA: Then it don't matter. I'll be all around in the dark - I'll be everywhere. Wherever you can look in the world where socialism still thrives. Wherever you see millions barely sustaining themselves in abject poverty, I'll be there. Wherever there is massive and unsustainable debt due to immoral entitlement promises that enslave the citizenry, I'll be there. Wherever God is rejected and sin is uplifted, I'll be there on my knees with my forehead pressed against my prayer rug. I'll be there passing out condoms and clean hypodermic needles, soothing the masses with polarizing lies and false promises. wherever there is a stack of dead baby fetuses left rotting in the sun, I'll be there too - celebrating the right for women to choose. 

Here is the original:
