Friday B-Movie Pick: Navy SEALs

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Navy SEALs

This movie was made in 1990, back when Hollywood wasn’t afraid to have Muslim terrorists be the bad guys. Charlie Sheen pulled off what was a badly written character as well as it could be expected. It was Michael Biehn who really shined in this film though. This was the first of at least three times he play a Navy SEAL. A good action flick where the bad guys get shot, stabbed, drown and blown up. Think of it as low budget way to get ready for Act of Valor, which is current playing in theaters and has real Navy SEALs playing the Navy SEALs. It also has Muslim terrorists as bad guy, which bucks the trend Hollywood has been following. A trend that has resulted in movies that suck and don’t make much money.

Quote of the Day

Friday, March 9th, 2012

“While the vandals are on the street corners, the Tea Party conservatives they’re working state houses, the governorships, the mayorships, the Senate, the House. See, they understand, they’ve read the Constitution. If you want to make a difference, don’t go break windows, okay? Break some phony arguments that things like austerity are going to put you in the hole. What put you in the hole is borrowing 38 cents of every dollar you spent. That’s what put you in the hole, pure and simple. Everything else is political spin.”

— on-air editor of CNBC Business News Rick Santelli explaining a key difference between the Tea Party and the Occupy Movement

What is the left’s problem with Free Speech

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Seriously, why does the left uniformly try to silence anyone who dares to disagree with them?

Latest example, democrat Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, who wants conservative voices removed from the public airways.

Just why are those on the left afraid of the free and open exchange of ideas?  Is it because they know their policies would not survive in a truly open and honest exchange of ideas?
