In answer here to the thread, “Son. Evil, Dumb, and Stupid’s No Way to Go Through Life” so that it doesn’t get lost in the archives, I was thinking about this subject when recently watching the last episode of, The Following. Whether it’s intentional or not, it shows how the liberal mind set is easily swayed to celebrate and glamourize immoral people, whether they be killers, or corrupt politicians.
When is one federal DA going to take on the NCAA,aka the Mafia?
Universities can’t complain about what the NCAA does or doesn’t do. It’s a club/orginization and they are members of it, free to leave at any time.
If we are to have college athletics there has to be a controlling agency, in this particular case it’s the NCAA. All of the schools who are members can change it or adjust it as they see fit.
In your example of the mafia, it would be like one of the made-men suing because the don put a horse’s head in his bed.
Speaking of horses this one is dead, so quit beating it.
I got my Coolidge! So, this morning’s commute activity is set. Anyone else reading it now? I note that Cal (I call him “Cal,” doncha know) is being panned around the web as part of the Lincoln brouhaha. I checked Moviefone yesterday for a flick, and there was Cal, listed first in an article about the ten presidents who do not deserve a movie about them.
How I wish that imbecile in our WH now were a “do nothing.”
So the liberal Dems in my state are trying to push through an anti-gun bill that would, among other things, require police to perform annual inspections of homes that contain assault weapons. Now that the media spotlight’s on them, the lawmakers are claiming they had no idea that provision was in the bill. Suuuuuure.
They have to pass it to find out what is in it, Jimmy.
Aw, c’mon, JC. It’s an “inspection,” not a “search.” Don’t you care about the chirren?
I got something they can inspect.
Did anyone else hear the sound of latex gloves being snapped?
Good morning, people! Anyone have a good holiday yesterday?
I worked, so it was pretty much a regular day around here.
Good times helping a friend get to the hospital before decompressing with episodes of the “V” re-boot.
Greetin’s! I had a fab-uh-lus weekend. I worked plenty much but not at my big city job. I spent some hours at the ranch. One of the gals out there is a vet tech, so she clips my doggy’s toes for me cheap.
I didn’t see or hear much about George Washington except for Pawn Stars that featured a commerative medal coin issued upon his death. Factoid trivia.
That’s probably my favorite scene from Firefly. Regardless of his politics, Whedon is one beautifully subversive bastard when it comes to PC Hollywood cliches.
Incidentally, I rewatched all episodes of Firefly over the holidays, and while watching it I realized that as much as I love that show, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly why people enjoy it so much. Then it hit me: Hollywood isn’t allowed to make Westerns anymore (with the exception of 3:10 to Yuma, which was a remake). They make sci-fi Western hybrids like Cowboys and Aliens, or animated talking animal Westerns like Rango, or artsy quasi-Westerns like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
But people are still itching for Westerns, and despite its sci-fi trappings, Firfly is a Western show in its very bones- the plots, the characters, the values, are straight out of classic Hollywood Western territory. Whedon said as much in an interview- he said he wanted to make a real Western show, but “if I don’t get spaceships I start to go crazy”- he was filling a huge void in American culture, and I think most people didn’t even realize it.
My mom watched “Australia” last night…thought it was a good Western.True.
Made with those impossibly happy, smiling people you see in stock video footage, these days.
Probably not COMPLETELY safe for work.
No, I had nothing to do with this one.
I forwarded this to my starving filmmaker videomaker Sun. (“Filmmaker” is a word; “videomaker” is not … yet!). Hysterical (but painful, heart wrenching) video, especially the very end.
This piece o’ shit lives a few doors down from my girlfriend and has threatened her before. When he and his girlfriend first moved into the neighborhood, she went over their house to meet them and then they accused her of stealing $200 that was on their kitchen counter, or where ever. She saw how they were slobs and did the dishes for them because she felt bad for the kids. Turns out his girlfriend took the money because she wanted to use it to get away from him. He’s a felon who’s on parole and was just arrested for picking a baby manatee out of the water and taking photos of his kids sitting on it. Asswhipe put the photos on Facebook like a proud idiot showing his kids how to break the law at a young age. Hopefully, that arrest while on parole sends him back to jail. He’s a crack head too, so I hope he was using when he got arrested.
