Friday B-Movie Pick: Black Belt Jones

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Black Belt Jones

Another martial arts classic staring Jim Kelly. Coming at you straight from 1974, this “kung fu” flick also falls squarely in the blaxploitation sub-genre as well. This is mid-70s low budget drive-in theater fodder in all its glory. Jim Kelly delivers the martial arts goods, and manages to carry this flick with some decent acting chops as well.

Friday Roundup

Here are a few thing that just may have flew under your radar.

Obama is admired by just 4 percent of Middle East Arabs in the new survey  released by the Brookings Institution and University of Maryland. I seem to recall the lefties telling everyone that Barack Hussein Obama understood the Muslim world and would improve our standing there.  Silly lefties, as TalkStraight correctly summed it up, “[The] Arab World does not admire people they consider weak.”

Our Dear Leader is continuing his version of a “jobs program”, by being on track to kill a potential 120,000 American jobs by stonewalling the Keystone Pipeline Project. Just what does he have against inexpensive, non-oil tanker required, conflict free, oil being available to the American people? It is almost as if he wants higher energy prices, rising inflation and an American economy stuck in a ditch.

Since QE1 and QE2 have been such dismal failures, Obama’s pick to head the Fed,Ben Bernanke, is looking to inflict QE3 on the American people.  For those of you who forget just what “Quantitative Easing” is, here is an instructional video.

Chicago democrat, and old Obama buddy Tony Rezko gets a ten and half year prison term for “extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval.” Ya, it does sorta sound like the Obama administration funneling “green investment” money to big democrat donors.
