News from the Fatherland!
Fresh from the Associated Press!!!
Doctors at a Washington hospital administered an electrical shock Monday to Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart and restored it to a normal rhythm after an irregular heartbeat was discovered earlier in the day.
~~What! Dick Cheney has a heart?~~
The nation stands in awe, so great is the shock to find out that big “Dick” Cheney actually has something inside him that was thought by his doctors to be a heart.
Who knew? Next, you’ll be telling me that he has a sense of humor!
Which was the greater shock – the high voltage the doctors used or finding out that even though the U.A.E. won’t allow him to be extradited, if he’s caught walking around out of that country he could be snapped up faster than you can say “Adolph Eichmann“, and frog marched off to the war crime trials.
If that comparison bothers you, well, in the exact words used by Richard Cheney, the vice president of the United States of America, “go fuck yourself”.
I saw the film “No Country for Old Men” today, and found it lacking very little. However, that little bit that was missing was an ending, the fade to black that happened several times during the film set me up to just be sitting quietly in my place as the credits rolled, waiting to see what would be next.
Make no mistake, it was an excellent edge of the seat ride from the start to the almost finish. There are several spoilers that I won’t talk about, because I hope a lot of people will see it, it deserves that much, even without an ending. Did I mention that before?
Tommy Lee Jones is in a select group of actors (along with Sean Connery, Harrison Ford, Nicholas Cage, Matt Damon, etc..) that I’ll go see, no matter what the reviews of a given film are like, no exception here. There are a few somewhat new guys to watch, Josh Brolin was interesting in any shot he was in. Also, the baddest bad guy in a while was played by Javier Bardem, a new name to look for if he’s more than a one trick pony, but he played this pony really, really well.
The Coen brothers and their writer’s choices of words were just up to their usual standards, which is to say letter perfect. The Texas twang was every bit the icing on the cake that the “way up North” dialect made “Fargo” such a treat to listen to as well as watch.
So, enjoy it for what it is, an unfinished symphony. Sort of like…..
I was taught a path through life when I was a kid,
it went something like this:
Spending money you don’t have to
Buy things you don’t need to
Impress people that don’t matter.
And here we are, decades later and it still makes sense today,
Be thankful for what you have, with no regret for what you lack.
This all came to mind while sorting through the ton of bait and
switch ads that have become such a part of our lives.
Peace and all that…..
Here’s yet another presidential pardon prospect.
The newest “Turkey” to be pardoned, he also claimed to have no knowledge about who outed Ms. Plame.
9-21-09, President Dennis J. Kucinich presides over the beginning of the war crimes trial of Bush + Cheney. I’d buy a ticket to watch that happy event.
This is, of course, after first taking away their passports and putting them under 24 hour armed guard.
Shown above, protesters from Saudia Arabia and the U.A.E. are put on a plane and returned to their homeland. From an altitude of about 11,000 feet.
And as in the image below, now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and for once it’s not an out of control train headed straight at us.
The greatest comeback in recent memory was when Dennis J. Kucinich responded to Wolf Blitzer at the Democratic debacle debate.
I’m paraphrasing here:
Wolf: I believe you’re the only person on this stage who had a chance to vote on the Patriot Act right after 9-11 and voted against it……
Dennis: That’s because I read it.
Simple and to the point, a no evasion policy will sure be a nice change to the way things work at the White House.
So, how’s the Hummer sales department doing this week? Hmmmm…Er….. Well, business a bit slow, not even the teen boy lookey-loos? I suggest that the Hummer dealers look into having swap meets on their parking lots on the weekends, they still need at least a little cash flow.
Well, the oil companies that took one for the team during the last election aren’t going to be biting the bullet again, they know they will have to crank up the money coming in prior to their golden boy leaving office.
Hey, get ready to grab your ankles folks, it’s time for the cash to flow like gas……
President Dennis J. Kucinich…… it just sounds right!
It’s way past time to get rid of House speaker, Nancy Pelosi of California, who has said the Democrats have no interest in impeaching Mr. Cheney or President Bush over the Iraq war.
Well, technically she might be at least one person more correct now, as I no longer will consider myself to be in any way a democrat, and it’s just because of a boneheaded statement like that one. Why would she say there’s “no interest” in impeachment?
I live for the day when I’ll be able to see Cheney and his lap dancing puppet Bush get frog marched out of the White House in restraints, at least before they have a chance to get away to their extradition proof Saudi provided land of retirement. Don’t believe that? Warm up your Google and link these terms: extradition, bush, cheney, Saudi Arabia, UAE, bought property, safety. And you thought that the Bush safe harbor compound was in Maine?
Here’s One Good Video on OneGoodMove.org
O.K., that’s a pretty straightforward statement shown on the screen.
The real humor is that it’s a Diebold machine!
I’ve just got to stop laughing one of these days.
Is it Kosher? Can’t say for sure, but it sure is a funny film.
It’s going to be playing in a limited screening soon in L.A. and New York, so if we’re going to be sitting on our rear ends because of a strike, this might be one of the better ways to spend the non-working day.
After seeing the poster, do you think that Billy Baldwin asked:
“Do these shorts make my ass look big?”
