If Dems control the Senate, Obama will pack the Supreme Court, and you can bet Harry Reid will go nuclear on it.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

Ten years ago, this Diesel Punk classic hit the big screen with enough CGI to choke server rooms worth of servers. Most of the cast did all their work against green screens that later became the amazing background of the film that never existed outside the digital realm. Damn fine cast as well, Jude Law as the title character, Sky Captain, the leader of a group of lawful good mercenaries. Gyneth Paltrow as his on and off again girl friend and intrepid girl reporter. Angelina Jolie as the frost British air ace and the other woman in Sky Captain’s life. This film is all about the larger than life aspect. From the giant flying robots to the Royal Air Corp helicarriers. Oh ya, there are dinosaurs too. Great film to escape and enjoy good old fashioned pulp adventure. Fire up the popcorn and enjoy!

Kildar by John Ringo

The sequel to John Ringo’s military thriller Ghost, which also won an award as a romance novel. At the end of the first novel, our (anti) hero has been touring Eastern Europe and sampling its pleasures. Kildar starts with him lost in a snow storm in Georgia (the country, not the state). A series of events result in him buying a farm, complete with a manor house and tenant farmers. The “tenant farmers” turn out to be the descendants of a long lost band of famous warriors. This book tells how Ghost, now known as “The Kildar”, trains up a company of commandos (with plenty of expensive help), and breaks them in by killing a lot of bad guys trying to sneak into their valley in order to kill, pillage, rape, etc. It also tells how the Kildar just happens to obtain an harem of teenage girls, and is forced into hiring an older (26), and incredibly beautiful harem manager. So Ringo is continuing the themes that won the previous novel that romance award. Additional books in the series pick up the pace, with more killing of bad guys, and rescuing of young women, some of which just happen to be submissive enough to warm the cold, hard heart of a Dom like the Kildar.

Round Up Post

Former adult film actress Jenna Jameson nails the difference between the first tweets made on September 11 by Gov. Mitt Romney and our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama.  They clearly show that one is a true leader with concern for America and has a real connection to the American people.  The other is a sleazy political hack from Chicago.

The democrats’ War on Women is still in full frontal assault mode.  As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just review what they are accusing their opponents of.

In a Civil Rights victory, voter-ID is the law of the land in Wisconsin for the November elections.

The New York Times finally admits that the “Assault Weapon” scare was hoax, an attempt to bamboozle the American people, and that the 1994 semi-automatic rifle ban did nothing to reduce crime, violent crime, or crimes committed with a firearm.
