Here is a roundup of some posts from No Moss Here.

The so-called “scientists” threw out their raw data.

It seems that this is the best the pet “scientists” used by the anthropogenic global warming Luddites can come up with, the dog ate my homework defense.  It makes a rational person wonder what they were trying to hide.

In a poll of registered voters, two thirds felt that the democrat so-called “stimulus” has not benefited the economy.

Obama’s DoJ, which won’t investigate the Black Panthers, says the criminals at ACORN are to get tax payer money.

ObamaCare’s Cost Could Top $6 Trillion.

Obamanomics: How Barack Obama Is Bankrupting You and Enriching His Wall Street Friends, Corporate Lobbyists, and Union Bosses by Timothy P. Carne

This book explains in detail why any Obama voter who thought that product of the corrupt Chicago democrat machine was going to clean up corruption in D.C. falls into the category of “useful idiot.”

Friday B-Movie: The Spirit

The Spirit

Another comic adaptation movie. This time it’s Wil Eisner’s classic indie comic. The cast is top notch and clearly had a lot of fun making this. Samuel L. Jackson is the villian, and Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes, well it really doesn’t matter what role they play, they raise the eye candy factor a bunch of notches. The fact that they do a fine job of acting just adds to the fun factor of this movie. Eisner fan Frank Miller was behind this and it shows in his unique visual style.

Meanwhile, at ACORN…

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

You remember ACORN, the far left political organizations with a history of strong ties to Barack Hussein Obama.   Well, it seems they are in the news yet again.

A former ACORN field director has just received a three year sentence for…wait for it…”two counts of conspiracy to commit a crime of compensation for registration of voters.”

Yes folks, you read that correctly, ACORN guilty of yet another case of voter fraud. What was that class our Dear Leader used to teach for ACORN? Something to do with “getting out the vote.” Hmmm….

Wait! There’s more!

It seems the San Diego ACORN office dumped a large volume of paper the day before they were raided by the Police.  What were they trying to hide? We also have to question their basic competence.  They dumped the paperwork in a public dumpster.  Haven’t these idiots ever heard of a shredder?

Over the weeks and months ahead, will continue to release information from this shocking document dump by ACORN, slowly revealing the ugly truth of ACORN: the fact that their stated mission of helping the poor and downtrodden is just a ruse and a cover for an organization that is highly partisan and highly political, and thus rotten to the core.

Not only is ACORN throughly and totally corrupt, they aren’t even very good at being evil.  Oh, and they have a long history of deep ties with our President, the Hopey Changey guy

Monday Book Pick: Badass

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Badass: A Relentless Onslaught of the Toughest Warlords, Vikings, Samurai, Pirates, Gunfighters, and Military Commanders to Ever Live by Ben Thompson

As billed, a collection of Badasses through out history. The list includes Alexander the Great, General George S. Patton, Bruce Lee, Chandragupta Maurya, Tomoe Gozen, Carlos Hathcock, and many more.

I have my own six degrees of connection to world class badass, back when I was a little kid, we lived in a D.C. suburb in Virginia while my dad was doing his scenic tour of Southeast Asia courtesy of the US Army.  The school teacher who lived down the street used to babysit for my brother and I.  She was one of the daughters of the USMC’s Lewis “Chesty” Puller. From what I remember, she was nice, but we didn’t get away with anything.

SNL takes on Obama, again.

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

The last time SNL did a skit that wasn’t completely fawning of our Dear Leader, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer actually spent air time “fact checking” the skit.  I wonder if SNL took that under consideration for this skit.  Their facts are spot on.  In all, a much better job of political reporting that you would see on MSNBC during their “prime time” smear shows.

HT to Mr. Reynolds and Hot Air.

Star Trek Crossover

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

There was a really cool, in an uber-nerd Trekker kind of way, cross over in the latest big budget Star Trek movie.   In the middle of the bridge set, the one that looks like an Apple Computer threw up, not just once, but twice, you saw on of the biggest ST:TOS fans in existence, James Cawley.

Cawley is the man behind Star Trek: Phase II, some of the finest fan produced Star Trek episodes out there.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Strange Brew

Strange Brew

Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis star in this 1980’s comedy classic about a couple of Canadian lads out to make the Great White North safer for beer, hockey and back bacon. Oh, and don’t forget beer, can’t mention beer enough when talking about this movie.

Facts don’t matter to the haters

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Ask most people on the right on why they don’t like our Dear Leader and most will be able to articulate specific policy issues they disagree with. OK, often they sum it up with “He’s a Socialist,” but when pressed, they can cite actual policies and give details.

Ask a typical hater of Gov. Sarah Palin why they don’t like her, and most can, at best, deliver quotes made by Tina Fey, and try to attribute them to Gov. Palin. If you press them for details, they tend to get angry and often blame you for attempting to insert reality into their irrational hatred that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy.

Proud ignorance is sadly a common feature of Obama supporters.

It’s a question of competence

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

The Obama White House has failed multiple instances of basic core competence.

When the AP pointed out that their “jobs created or saved” metric was utter fiction, a White House Spokesman accused them of “calculator abuse.”

Then there was the embarrassing list of items that were being funded by the Porkulus program, which included:

– $430,000 to repair a bridge in Iowa County, Wis., that carries 10 or fewer cars per day.
– $800,000 for the John Murtha Airport in Johnstown, Pa., serving about 20 passengers per day, to build a backup runway.
– $219,000 for Syracuse University to study the sex lives of freshmen women.
– $2.5 million in stimulus checks sent to the deceased.

Now, according the the website, built at the cost of millions of tax payers dollars, $6.4 billion of that democrat porkulus bill has been spent in congressional districts that don’t exist.

In the non-existent 14th congressional district alone, the Obama administration claims to have spent $617,848 in order to “create or save” five jobs. That is $123,569.60 per job, in a part of America that doesn’t even exist.

You can bet that this buck won’t stop at our Dear Leader’s desk. Nope, he’s going to pass this steaming pile of incompetence on to his good buddy, Joey Biden. Yup, the man a heartbeat away from the Oval Office was in charge of implementing the Porkulus program, and he has managed to screw that pooch royally.
