Today another judge ruled Obamacare is unconstitutional. 27 states (a majority) are suing to get out of it. Obamacare is arguably the biggest accomplishment of his administration, even though he didn’t really do any work to get it done except give a few speeches. But it may go down in flames now.
Meanwhile, over the weekend, as Egypt erupted in flames and riots President Obama partied and watched basketball. One of our major allies in the middle east may end up going to crazed Islamists, like Iran did under Jimmy Carter. If that happens the Middle East may be engaged in even more extreme conflict just as Obama is planning to bail out on Iraq and Afghanistan. He will go down as the worst president in history if that happens.
Meanwhile, gas and food prices are shooting higher. Unemployment is not improving. And Darrel Issa hasn’t even revved up his planned investigations into the administration.
This year may prove to be a bad one for many people, including the president who makes Jimmy Carter look like a genius by comparison.
There are still plenty of people who refuse to see what’s obvious, that this administration is in way over its head, but they will find their delusions increasingly difficult to maintain in the wake of what’s going down. The pathetic handling of the Egyptian crisis and the cluelessness of Obama, Biden, Clinton has been appalling.
America made a huge mistake when it handed the presidency to an untried, inexperienced man with no real accomplishments to his name other than getting elected to higher office. The damage he is doing may last long after he’s done. When Jimmy Carter threw the Shah of Iran under the bus, the tree of Islamic terrorism began to grow and 9/11 was its bitter fruit. Let us hope things don’t degenerate worse than they already have.
The dubbing in Russian is typical of how they do it in Russia.
I saw a few films lately. Here are my quick reviews.
TRUE GRIT: An excellent, superb film. I did not look at it as a remake of the John Wayne picture. I put that out of my mind and just appreciated it on its own. As such, it is one of the finest westerns of recent years. Tremendous dialog and acting all around.
THE KING’S SPEECH: Another superb movie. You would think the story of a man teaching king George the sixth not to stutter wouldn’t be that interesting, but it was in fact a very warm, touching and sometimes funny film that was also about an important slice of history. The title has multiple meanings, but it mainly refers to the speech he has to give that tells the British citizens that their nation is going to war with Germany. It is an incredibly important speech, but George VI cannot string sentences together until he is taught how to do it.
THE FIGHTER: Another solid film with great acting and a good script. It’s this decade’s Rocky, without the schmaltz. Mark Wahlberg gives his usual low key performance, but he is good here as a boxer living in the shadow of his crack addicted older brother.
THE GREEN HORNET: Surprisingly, the movie doesn’t suck. Is it great? No. But I found it funny and actually laughed a bunch of places I was supposed to, which is more than I can say for a lot of movies. I was entertained. The trailer is misleading. It’s better than it looks.
NARNIA: VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER: Does a much better job than the last film and is fairly faithful to the books. It feels rather episodic, lacking the warmth that the books made me feel. None the less, a solid film.
I loved the first game. A really scary thrill ride through a demon infested spaceship. The reviews of the sequel make it sound that much better. Can’t wait to play it.
I thought he would live to be at least 100. The fitness guru was a inspiration to many. But, all the fitness in the world doesn’t change this simple fact…
I can remember my mom watching his fitness show when I was a little kid. He even has a cameo in the 1966 Batman move at the beginning.
Yes, they are still trying to sell global warming despite brutal winters and all the evidence that it’s a con game, a sham. An utter falsehood. And here’s teh reason. The reason why they will fight tooth and nail to keep the lie alive.
From being a marginal and even mocked issue, climate-change litigation is fast emerging as a new frontier of law where some believe hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake.
Compensation for losses inflicted by man-made global warming would be jaw-dropping, a payout that would make tobacco and asbestos damages look like pocket money.
Imagine: a country or an individual could get redress for a drought that destroyed farmland, for floods and storms that created an army of refugees, for rising seas that wiped a small island state off the map.
In the past three years, the number of climate-related lawsuits has ballooned, filling the void of political efforts in tackling greenhouse-gas emissions.
Eyeing the money-spinning potential, some major commercial law firms now place climate-change litigation in their Internet shop window.
It was always about greed and money. The scientists who sold the lie stood to make endless grant dollars. The politicians saw it as an excuse to grab more power and levy more taxes and the trial lawyers were rubbing their filthy hands together the whole time. Besides, there were plenty of saps marching n the streets egging the whole thing on.
This scam has to end before it further damages a global economy already teetering on collapse. But don’t expect the scum who are pushing the fraud to back down gracefully. They are doubling down.
It’s really amazing how good some of these fan films are getting in terms of effects. Really makes me want to get out there and do one of my own.
