Friday B-Movie Pick: Paul

Friday, September 30th, 2011


This nerd fest of a film is a big sloppy wet kiss, with tounge, to Steven Spielberg. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost wrote the screenplay and star as a pair of British SciFi fans who make the pilgrimage to Comic Con in San Diego. Then they start on a road trip to obsure SciFi and UFO sites, including the spot where the ST:TOS episode Arena was film in order to act out the battle between Kirk and the Gorn. Then they run into the title character, a Gray, who is colored green in the film (“Little Green Men” reference). From there it, the film becomes a drinking game as you spot every single SciFi reference slid into nearly every scene.

Oh ya, of course this film, like every episode of The Middleman, has a Wilhelm Scream.

What is the democrats’ problem with democracy?

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

It seems that democrats are always trying an end run around democracy and the US Constitution whenever the American people wake up to their far left extremist agenda.

Here are two recent examples:

North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. She argues that by taking the “pressure” of re-election off members of Congress will allow them to focus on the economy.  This moonbat misses the entire point of holding the entire house and a third of the Senate accountable to the American people every two years!  Perhaps she does understand that and is lying in order to promote her party’s extremist agenda.  Either one is not good for the American people.

President Obama’s former budget director, Peter Orszag writes in the far left “New Republic” that “we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.” Really? Democrats didn’t mind gridlock when they were the “Party of No”, blocking the agenda of a Republican president.  How about  a dose of reality in translating Mr. Orszag’s whining…Our Dear Leader‘s far left extremist policies are extremely unpopular with the American people (see the 2010 mid-term elections), so we need to suspend that pesky Constitution thing in order to ram our vision of a socialist utopia down the throats of the people who are going to suffer the most at its enactment.

Expect a MSM/DNC blackout on a democrat Governor calling for the suspension of elections also.

Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World by Andrew Breitbart

Andrew Breitbart tells the story of his transformation from clueless college student majoring in (anti-)American Studies to a warrior for the Constitution and for honesty in in reporting from the main stream media. He explains in detail about collaboration between the DNC and the Media Complex (which includes TV News, print magazines and the film industry) and how to use new media to combat them and win! In chapter 7, he lays out his game plan for fighting the left in details some of the highlights include: Don’t be afraid to go into enemy territory; Don’t let the Complex use its PC lexicon to characterize you and shape the narrative; Ubiquity is key; and Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth.

Leftists will try to talk about “your truth” and “their truth”, which is bullshit. There is just the truth.

Quote of the Day

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad”

— President Barack Hussein Obama.

This is the guy that democrats keep claiming is the “smartest President evah!” Imagine the uproar if any Republican on the national scene said this? It would be the lead “news” story across the entire DNC/MSM spectrum.


Obama’s bullet proof vest

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

The best argument against resigning before January 20, 2013 can be stated in three words.

“President Joe Biden”

Seriously, the man is a better bullet proof vest than Dan Quayle ever was.

Biden holds the distinction of being the only man in the Senate only to hold leadership posts which only have “time in office” requirements.
Literally ones that the DNC could not deny him because the only criteria was serving the required number of terms.
The DNC has carefully kept this idiot out of any position where he could cause any damage. Which makes him a perfect Vice-President in the traditional application of the office.

I have to give my brother Fred credit for coming up with the perfect summary of Joe Biden. He is the Anti-Dick Cheney.

While some leftists may be calling on Obama not to run for reelection, they would much rather the Big Zero, and his magic teleprompter, to stay in office. With our Dear Leader, the DNC can play the race card, and be secure that Obama, a product of the corrupt Chicago democrat machine, will do what he told, and stay out of too much trouble by sticking with his rigorous golf schedule.

Joe Biden in the Oval Office gives up the race card, and will cause an otherwise reliable core of black voters to stay home. Plus there is the danger that Biden will do what he is famous for Washington, D.C.; screw up royally and let the truth slip out of his mouth.

The old school democrat method to reduce the deficit

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Let us set the Way Back Machine to 1962, when a democrat President presented his plan to create jobs and economic spur growth.

That’s right, dear readers, President Kennedy called for across the board tax cuts and tax reform in order to create jobs, grow the economy, and increase federal revenue.

Unlike our Dear Leader‘s plan of jacking taxes through the roof, President Kennedy’s plan was successful.

“Tax revenues climbed from $94 billion in 1961 to $153 billion in 1968, an increase of 62 percent (33 percent after adjusting for inflation).”


Monday Book Pick: Fuzzy Nation

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi

When I first heard that John Scalzi wanted to do a reboot of H. Beam Piper‘s “Little Fuzzy“, it made my Sunday SciFi pick for 4/11/10. It’s out now, and I’ve read it (thanks Fred!), and I have to say it’s pretty damn good. Piper purists may yelp because there is no contra-grav, but it’s a bloody reboot! Expect change and embrace it. Scalzi clearly has serious SciFi author chops. He wouldn’t be my first choice for a reboot of Space Viking or Uller Uprising, but the Fuzzy books, sure. My top choice for Space Viking would be David Weber, and John Ringo for Uller Uprising.

Sunday SciFi: Classic Star Wars Poster

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Ah yes, the original 1977 Star Wars, not episode IV, not “A New Hope”, just a low budget SciFi film with a bunch of relatively unknown actors as stars and a director who’s last movie was about hot rods in the early sixties.   The version where Han shot first because he was a rogue, a smuggler, one who operated outside the law.

Star Wars was a  B movie, complete with the Wilhelm scream, and we loved it.
