Boycott?

It wouldn’t be very effective for me to boycott movie theaters until Hollywood tells their friends and masters in North Korea where to shove it. I hardly watch movies anyway. Okay, never going to a theater again might not be … Continue reading

Here I thought

that the major controversies stirred up over recent events could in many cases be understood to be driven by willful ignorance. Some people find it convenient that certain things not be discussed: 1. Pot smokers don’t like people suggesting that … Continue reading

Ferguson

It seems like, if one uses certain standard arguments, one could claim that the root cause of this is the fact that it is illegal to sell tobacco products to minors. Legalize such. Drop the sin taxes. Stop the PSAs. … Continue reading

Gruber

Truth be told, I had thought that Obama had squat to do with Obamacare, beyond chiming in on sales, taking credit, and preventing people from making the technical implementation work if it would cause him political harm. It seems I … Continue reading

Beer vs Whiskey

Several years ago, for Reasons, I became a whiskey (to include Bourbon) drinker – almost exclusively so. Beer used to be my go-to drink.  Now, it’s just an occasional maintenance drink.  So much so that I have friends bring over … Continue reading

Obama Nominates Judge Lynch

The Administration has formally moved on its agenda of re-implementing the post Reconstruction policies beloved of the Democratic Party. Historically, these policies were used to murder Republicans, and to terrorize them into political irrelevance. Steve Renfroe’s is a famous example … Continue reading

GamerGate WTF?

GamerGate is a largish high-energy debate and flamewar on the internet. GamerGate is an influence peddling scandal involving conspiracy among hobby media outlets, with some potential ties to more mainstream media organizations. GamerGate is a microcosm of leftist or leftist … Continue reading

Apparently this commercial aired in 2001. Nothing to see here. Move along. (H/T Ace) Marcus

Fury

See it.  A technically imperfect movie, but an amazing look into how insane late war Germany was. I’m real curious what my Army bros think of it. I’ll talk in a comment later about somethings that may be spoilers. -BLT

Lockheed Fusion

I just checked it out on their website. It looks a bit more speculative than other parts of the internet were making it sound. That’d be a defensible reason why the media aren’t all over it. I dunno about the … Continue reading

Neither shocking nor disloyal

The Washington Post seems wrong again. As far as the latter is concerned, the central question is what entity, if any, does Panetta have loyalty to? Many of the alternatives have been discussed elsewhere. The best match, as far as … Continue reading

SSSS 10/1/14

Today’s Stand Still. Stay Silent has some bits that were not analyzed to my taste when I was able to look at the comments. Needless to say, spoilers, so go here if you want to read this post-apoc zombie fantasy … Continue reading

Moore killing

One thing I’ve seen apparently overlooked. Moore is close to and has some ties to Norman. Norman might be the most leftwing part of Oklahoma, with the highest concentration of out of state crazy. Hence Moore might not be the … Continue reading
