Friday B-Movie Pick: The Running Man

July 17, 2009

The Running Man

An Arnold Schwarzenegger classic from 1997. California in 2017 has become a police state in the wake of the world’s economy’s total collapse. The hero is wrong accused and tossed in a brutal prison along with Yaphet Kotto’s character, who is there for teaching kids about the Constitution of the United States of America. Ya, I know, it sounds like where America is heading under the reign of our Dear Leader. Besides that, it’s a fun film with added bonuses like Jesse Ventura, Professor Toru Tanaka, Mick Fleetwood, and great performance by Richard Dawson. It was directed by Paul Michael Glaser, From the Starsky and Hutch TV show, and choreography by Paula Abdul.

About that Global Warming Thing..

December 9, 2008

It looks like its going to get very cold in Southern California.

“We know we are due for a winter storm sometime this year. The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region. With this, may come low elevation snow.”

Normally, I’d blame Canada for this type of weather, but this time it looks like the Russians.

Meanwhile, in California

November 10, 2008

While there is some whining from the Right over the election of the “Dear Leader”, most have managed to man up over it and admit they got their ass kicked deservedly and are trying to figure out a way to come back.

Such dignity appears to be lacking among a certain liberal democrat constituency out in California.

The homosexual community is outraged over the failure of Prop 8 at the ballot box. As a libertarian, the idea of a civil contract regulated by the State (which is what “marriage” is in this country) being restricted by gender or number of participants is unconstitutional. It’s also stealing the food off divorce lawyer’s tables. Personally, I’m more worked up over the failure of our constitutional republic (i.e. electing a Socialist to the highest executive office) than California divorce lawyers being forced to hang on to last year’s BMW instead of getting a new one. That’s just me though.

Some members of the homosexual community in California apparently views not being able to register for wedding gifts on par with the KKK lynching blacks for wanting firearms to shoot back when “invited to a necktie party.”

AoSHQ discusses their upcoming agenda:

(1) Push for churches to lose their tax-exempt status.
(2) Call blacks the n-word.
(3) Harass Mormons.
(4) Equate opposition to gay marriage with bigotry.

Ok, so we have direct assault on the Constitution, plus racial and religious bigotry. Way to stay classy!

I think its probably pretty safe to say the Muslim population in California voted the same way most of the Mormons did. So when are the protests at radical Mosques going to start?

If Obama shows up, are you going to scream “N*gger!” at him also?

Look at the numbers folks, Prop 8 lost because a lot of Californians who voted for “The Lightgiver” also voted against homosexual marriage. The idea doesn’t poll well with blacks, hispanics or Roman Catholics (and many other Christian churches). How about mending fences in your own house before attacking the Mormon church? Instead of blind rage and violence, how about regrouping and planning, getting out and educating instead of spewing hate?

Just remember the words of Scarlet O’Hara folks, and as much as it may pain you to do so, take a look at what the Republican party is doing, and try to follow their example.

Update: Ann Althouse correctly identifies this “terrible idea” as fighting “hate with hate.”

That woman is in trouble

The President of the LA chapter of NOW supports Gov. Sarah Palin.

She won’t be able to do lunch in that town again.

LA racing to be part of the third world

By way of Ace is this sad story about the LA City Council telling businesses that they have no property rights:

LA City Council Vote Unanimously That “Big Box Stores” Such as Home Depot Must Provide Shelters, Bathrooms, and Water for the Illegal Immigrants Illegally Loitering on Their Property.

The Anti-Science Left strikes again

July 8, 2008

No surprise, but these enemies of humanity are active in Berkeley, CA.

Scientists say the vandalism and intimidation threaten not just themselves and their families but the future of medical research. Specialists in such fields as addiction, eyesight and the aging brain have been targeted.

“It used to be everyone was worried about their laboratories being broken into and their data being destroyed, their animals being taken away,” said Jeffrey Kordower, head of the Society for Neuroscience’s animal research committee. “What they’ve decided to do now is make things more personal.”

Accompanying the attacks is increasingly tough talk from activists such as Dr. Jerry Vlasak, a spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front press office. In an interview with The Associated Press, he said he is not encouraging anyone to commit murder, but “if you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable.”

Now, if any of these leftist terrorists got hurt while conducting their acts of vandalism or outright terrorism, I wouldn’t shed a tear.

Domestic left wing terrorists strike again!

The far left liberal domestic terrorist group known as the so-called “Animal Liberation Front”, torched a van at UCLA as part as their anti-science agenda.

Why New York City is better than Berkeley

The difference is clear.

Berkeley barbarians vs. New York City Patriots.

No contest.

More on the Barbarians in Berkeley.

February 2, 2008

My friend Doug, a former US Army Infantryman and dyed in the wool liberal born and raised in San Francisco, has a few choice words about the actions of his neighbors in Berkeley against the United States Marine Corps.

The City of Berkeley has gone too fucking far. A USMC Recruiting office opened on Shattuck Avenue in December 2006. It’s mission is to attract recent college graduates to serve as officers.

“Code Pink” one of the shriller anti-everything groups in the area, went nuts.

The Berkeley City Council just passed two resolutions: One gave Code Pink a designated parking spot, right in front of the station. The second?

The other resolution more directly criticizes the presence of the center in Berkeley. The city manager was directed to send a letter to the U.S. Marine Corps saying they are “uninvited and unwelcome intruders” in the city.

In addition, the city attorney has been directed to investigate whether the city’s anti-discrimination laws can be enforced at the center, based on the military’s consideration of sexual orientation in hiring.

The United States Marine Corps. Morons, if the Marines were coming to your town as “unwelcome intruders” y’all would currently be either dead or learning to love life as an EPW. Marine recruiters are complete professionals, and I say this as an old Army grunt!

But things get better.. Betty Olds, member of the Politburo for the PR of Berkeley actually said the following:

“I’m ashamed of my vote,” said Councilwoman Betty Olds, who helped approve the parking spot but not the condemnation. “The protesters should have free speech – this is where Free Speech was born, after all – but to tell the Marines they are not welcome is shameful. If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t even go for the parking spot.”

Free Speech in this country was born at a place called Lexington and Concord. The rights enshrined in the First Amendment were won by force of arms, including those first Marines.

Amazing.

So, until both these resolutions are withdrawn and the City Council of Berkeley issues an apology to the USMC, I will not be spending a freaking dime in that city. That includes companies based in the den of weasels.

Let Bezekely know how you feel about this:

You might also contact your national representatives and suggest that if Berkeley hates the federal government so much, they can do without federal money.

To be clear, I support Code Pink’s right to be idiots in public. What is appalling is a city government attacking a branch of the military.

More on this over at Michelle Malkin’s site and at Gateway Pundit.

Update
: How others view the US Marine Corps:

“Some people live their entire lifetime and wonder if they ever made a difference to the world. Marines don’t have that problem.” — United States President Ronald Reagan, January 1995

“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank GOD for the United States Marine Corps.” Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

“Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever witnessed. They treat their service as if it were some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everything they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics with haircuts to ungentlemanly lengths, worshipping their Commandant almost as if he were a god, and making weird animal noises like a band of savages. They’ll fight like rabid dogs at the drop of a hat just for the sake of a little action, and are the cockest sons of bitches I have ever known. Most have the foulest mouths and drink well beyond man’s normal limits, but their high spirits and sense of brotherhood set them apart and, generally speaking, the United States Marines I’ve come in contact with are the most professional soldiers and the finest men I have ever had the pleasure to meet.” — An Anonymous Canadian Citizen

“I think it’s nothing more than the way the Marines do business. They approach everything ­ from the way they do business in Washington to how they approach a peacetime program objective ­ like it’s a combat operation, and it’s one of the reasons they are so darned successful.” — U.S. Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine

Also, take note of of the last photo in Zombietime’s collection of the Code Pink Moonbats “protest.” As soon as they punch the clock and leave, a Marine smartly polices the area.

How the left "supports the troops"

January 27, 2008

They don’t really, they just mouth the words so they don’t sound like the anti-American barbarians they really are. If you are against “war and stuff”, vote your congresscritter who votes for it out of office. Attacking the men and women in uniform who defend your right to curse them is barbaric.
Case in point, the so-called compassionate and caring far hard left extremist leftist “liberals” in Berkeley, CA who are trying to pass a new zoning law for U.S. Military recruitment offices that they admit is based on the law for porn shops.
Frankly, I’m surprised that Berkeley has such harsh laws against adult oriented businesses exercising their First Amendment rights. I guess all that “Freedom of Expression” stuff is to have adult bookstores in your neighborhood, not theirs.
