I could have told you that was going to be the case. The comic con people do not want to move. But they had to make their deals. Today they announced they would be staying here for the foreseeable future.
Although Comic-Con has had to cap attendance at about 125,000 people every year since it reached capacity in 2007. Its lease at the San Diego Convention Center ends in 2012, and although Anaheim and LA were considered as venues to move to, Comic-Con will stay in San Diego through 2015.
Tomorrow, a press conference will tell the world exactly WHY the Con decided to stay in San Diego. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you have any ideas, post them in the comments!
In French with English Subtitles, well worth checking out.
It’s one thing that immigrants make an area some kind of cultural area, we have had that for thousands of years. The US has its China towns and so on. The difference here is, they do not want any outsiders to come in. They attack them. The police are afraid to go into them and they are creating fascist mini-states inside the city. That cannot be allowed to spread or continue.
The Dems voted to go on recess until after the election rather than vote to extend Bush’s tax cuts or not, leaving businesses with more uncertainty until then (thus unable to employ more people). The decision was a tie until one person voted to break it in favor of recess. Guess who that was?
Obama defended the health care bill he signed in March, saying neither it, nor the stimulus package nor the automotive industry bailout last year was responsible for the size of the federal deficit to the extent that (Bush) tax cuts were.
Aside from the fact this is a blatant lie, tax cuts increase tax revenue because they encourage prosperity and growth. Thus, Bush’s tax cuts got America out of the dot com bust/911 recession early in his term and led to many years of prosperity until the Democrats took over the house and the housing bubble got us in this one.
The Democrats like to blame capitalism for economic downturns. but once again, it is over taxation and government mismanagement (in this case of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac) which lead to the mess we’re in now. And they want to keep us all miserable by denying tax payers any relief. Taxes are set to go way up next year.
Nancy Pelosi didn’t want the vote to happen because she was afraid she would lose it. A lot of Democrats are bucking the President and Pelosi’s disastrous policies and want the extensions. They know it might help them get reelected. Too late, Dems. Your leader just shot down your chances.
The Coen Brothers are redoing True Grit, making it closer to the novel on which both movies are based. I’ve been waiting for this trailer. We’ll see how well it does. I like Jeff Bridges a lot,but he has some tall boots to fill.
I found this interesting interview with Ronald Reagan and Robert F Kennedy from 1967 regarding Vietnam. Some leftist in the UK, spouting communist propaganda he obviously believed, tried to challenge the two men and they gave their positions.
I highly recommend this interview with the author of a new book called Dupes. Since the Soviet Union was formed Communists and their allies have tried to destroy the west by feeding propaganda to their idealogical allies in those countries and those people, to this day, continue to lie about America in an attempt to tear it down in order to turn it into something it’s not. It is important to remember that America has been the world’s champion of freedom and individual rights. We found to save people from all kinds of tyranny and continue to do so. And the lovers and allies of tyranny have tried to stop us and prevent us from continuing this mission.
I highly recommend watching the JFK/Nixon debates on YouTube as its the 50th anniversary, but you will also see that a lot of the issues they spoke of then are still with us, even if the cold war is not. We live in a time where we have to wonder if the world will be free or not. Those who would enslave their people are still around and even here we have those who want people locked into a cycle of dependency on the government with our freedoms limited. It is up to us, the voters to make sure that those people do not get away with any more of their shenanigans. I think JFK would have been horrified by where we are today.
He was voted as the top presidential pick by the values voters for 2012. He certainly looks the part, but more important, he seems to really understand our system of government and appreciates the constitution. This speech at Hillsdale College is excellent. Whoever runs in 2012, they’re going to have an easy act to follow. But we don’t want any more hacks and ideologues.
My problem with Mike Pence is he is a social conservative, as well as a fiscal conservative and wanted social stuff in the GOP’s Pledge to America. As a quasi-libertarian, I don’t believe social issues are any of the government’s business. But I can live with these differences if he is as pro-constitution and limited government as he seems to be.
