The hypocrisy of the Hollywood Left (or as I say “all of Hollywood”) if finally getting the publicity they deserve AND in their own backyard. I’m not sure how anyone could bring themselves to even look at Meryl Streep again let alone pay to see one of her flicks. How many innocent women were molested because she kept quiet? Because they ALL kept quiet. How about we all just walk on by their movies?
Surprisingly there actually are voices of reason in the tragic school shooting. Perhaps we will actually have a legitimate dialogue on the subject of mental health, coarsening of society and Hollywood’s role, and firearms.
Brad Thor has done it again. Perhaps stealing from recent headlines about the Presidents “kill list” Thor’s Black List puts hero Scot Harvath once again in grave danger. Most of his usual resources are no longer at this disposal and he has to rely on old “friends” for help as death seems barely a step behind him as they seem to know his every move. Perhaps more chilling is the opening note from Brad Thor
“All of the technology contained in this novel is based on systems currently deployed, or in the final stages of development, by the United States government and its partners.”
…and this is the road we’ve been taken upon. This is a response to Hollywood’s (Tom Hank I’ll NEVER watch one of your flicks again. That’s ashame as Toy Story was his best work) “documentary” fantasy about Obama’s first year in office with the real facts (you know those things that are supposed to be in documentaries) blended in. I would say enjoy, but the realities of our nation are much less than enjoyable.
It is often very interesting to me how Hollyweird types and their rich liberal friends (i.e. Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, etc.) are all about liberal causes and how the rich should pay more. To date I have yet to read about one of them giving more to the federal government. In fact Warren’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, is being sued by the federal government for $366 millionin back taxes. Perhaps the “Buffet Rule” should start with paying what you owe? I guess this FOO (Friend of Obama) doesn’t mind if taxes goes up since his companies don’t really pay anyway.
While many of us conservatives are not the least bit surprised that Democrat leaders don’t understand the hopes, fears, desires, expectations we have for our country, I have been more than a little surprised at the blindness of so many Republicrats to the same issues. As a registered Republican (though not for long – can you say independent) I was rather discouraged when our presidential nominee was ordained long before the primary in my state. Even more perplexing was the fact that Democrat voters and pundits had more say in that selection than millions of registered Republicans. The turnout in the 2008 election is a testament to the disgust many of us felt, though I swallowed and voted for Palin/McCain.
Sorry this is not a baseball post. Those of us living in Pittsburgh with the hapless Pirates; holders of the longest losing streak of all professional sports (17 years and counting) don’t talk about much about professional baseball. Our president gave his first pitch at a State of the Union speech and apparently did not hit the strike zone. I confess to not watching as I could not bear to see Ms. Pelosi popping up every 30 seconds, Obama’s use of the words “I” or “me” a gazillion times or his unusual speech pattern whistling his S’s. The fact that he is on television every 17 hours giving a speech did not weigh in his favor either. I played tennis on our Wii (I achieved “Pro” status during his speech).
I guess that it is tradition to end the previous year and start a new year with some wishes or resolutions for the future. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century I have a few of my own…hopefully for your enjoyment:
My first wish is for the lame stream media to start to enjoy the fact that they were successful in getting their man elected to the White House. It has been almost a year so it is time for them to give up the ghost of the George W. Bush presidency and myths that they like to promote such as the 2000 election was stolen, Cheney was really in charge, and that Bush was both stupid and fiendishly cunning.
Brief 1: The first story is about a convicted sex offender being paroled after first receiving what seems to be a minimal sentancefor a crime where he “broke into the woman’s residence on Sept. 21, 2007. He dragged her upstairs by her hair and tried to rape her. When she resisted, he forced her to perform a sex act.” You can all feel comfortable with our court system as the creep plead guilty to burglary and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse receiving 11.5 months to 23 months for the burglary and probation for the sexual assault. It should be noted that the judge was a female who later paroled the sexual predator after serving only the minimum sentence.
