I like the ‘Die Hard’ Bruce Willis movies. There’re good blow ’em up, shoot ’em down escapism fare.
After watching this, why watch the movie?
Chemtrails? Did someone say Chemtrails?!!??
Yesterday the Washington Examiner reported, “Attorney General Eric Holder can imagine a scenario in which it would be constitutional to carry out a drone strike against an American on American soil, he wrote in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.”
Oh no. Holder said “can imagine.”
Politico reported that Sen. Rand Paul said this means “Americans could be killed while they’re ‘eating dinner’ or ‘at a cafe.’”
In other words, that means people like me who eat a lot are more likely to be killed by a drone. This is terrible news for the restaurant business…

Remember MAD Magazine?
‘Under Gov. Bobby Jindal’s voucher program, considered the most sweeping in the country, Louisiana is poised to spend tens of millions of dollars to help poor and middle-class students from the state’s notoriously terrible public schools receive a private education’.
‘While the governor’s plan sounds great in the glittery parlance of the state’s PR machine, the program is rife with accountability problems that actually haven’t been solved by the new standards the Louisiana Department of Education adopted two weeks ago’.
‘Another big concern is that a lot of the schools are religious, and voucher programs are a way for Republicans to brainwash kids by teaching them historically incorrect, anti-gay, and anti-science religion as “fact,” all funded by taxpayers’.
‘The Ku Klux Klan was a force for good’
“[The Ku Klux] Klan in some areas of the country tried to be a means of reform, fighting the decline in morality and using the symbol of the cross. Klan targets were bootleggers, wife-beaters, and immoral movies. In some communities it achieved a certain respectability as it worked with politicians.”—United States History for Christian Schools, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2001′
‘Majority of slaves in the old south were treated well’
“A few slave holders were undeniably cruel. Examples of slaves beaten to death were not common, neither were they unknown. The majority of slave holders treated their slaves well.”—United States History for Christian Schools, 2nd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 1991′
‘Dinosaurs and humans lived side by side’
“Bible-believing Christians cannot accept any evolutionary interpretation. Dinosaurs and humans were definitely on the earth at the same time and may have even lived side by side within the past few thousand years.”—Life Science, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2007′
‘Fire-breathing dragons may actually have existed’
“[Is] it possible that a fire-breathing animal really existed? Today some scientists are saying yes. They have found large chambers in certain dinosaur skulls…The large skull chambers could have contained special chemical-producing glands. When the animal forced the chemicals out of its mouth or nose, these substances may have combined and produced fire and smoke.”—Life Science, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2007′

My take right now is that the 2014 Midterms will split the Republican Party.
The fringe freaks or some people call them ‘extreme right’, will lose some more seats in the House and cause a few lost seats in the Senate.
So the freks will split off into the teabaggers and someone like Rick Santorum will lead them into cutting education (because that makes people snobs) and just reading the Bible (trying to force the ‘Christian’ religion on to all America).
What’s left of the Republican Party will have Christie and Bush.
Bush has, well actually a lot of problems but mainly his last name and he’s not angry.
Christie is an angry man.
He wins the Republican nod.
‘In a press conference on Monday, New Jersey governor Chris Christie blasted Washington — both Congress and the president — for its inability to resolve the sequester’.
“I don’t have the first damn idea of what they’re doing. If the federal government cannot cut one cent out of a dollar and not bring the economy and the country to its knees, then the government is in awful shape to begin with,” he said, displaying his trademark Jersey charm.
“We’ve done much harder things in New Jersey in much shorter periods of time,” Christie said’.
‘But Christie’s big claims don’t hold up in two ways’.
‘First, the sequester won’t cut “one cent out of a dollar.” The cuts are meant to be painful. Discretionary spending — all of the government’s spending on education, research and programs for the poor like Meals on Wheels, aid for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) — will be cut by 5.3 percent. This pushes discretionary spending to a record low’.
‘Secondly, Christie may have made big cuts in New Jersey, but those cuts have had a negative effect’.
‘Last year, as Christie announced the “New Jersey Comeback,” he predicted greater economic growth than any state in the union. He’s since had to revise that prediction downward’.
‘Hurricane Sandy didn’t exactly help New Jersey’s economy, but even before the storm, the state had one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation’.
‘In Christie’s first year in office, he cut education by more than a billion dollars and let a tax on the state’s richest taxpayers expire. He also signed a budget that cut funding to family planning and canceled a train tunnel project to New York City that would have created jobs and alleviated traffic’.

Yes we just need more guns!
‘The scene happened Monday in the Panhandle community of Crawfordville, FL. 61-year-old Mary Frances Alday brought an internet coupon to her local Walmart. The one dollar coupon was rejected. The angry Alday responded by calling the assistant manager, Tracy Stockslager, 48, “a bitch and other foul names.”
‘Alday was kicked out of the store where she reportedly warned Stockslager not to follow her. The employee says she “was going to get her vehicle license plate number’.
‘Alday replied (from The Smoking Gun), “If you follow me, I have something in my car for you,” Alday warned. The Smoking Gun continues’:
‘As several Walmart employees watched from the store’s entrance, Alday appeared outside her car “waving the gun in the holster,” reported investigators. Alday then removed the weapon–a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special–from the holster and pointed it “at all the store employees and stated ‘I have something for Y’all.’” The Walmart workers “retreated back inside the building due to being in fear for their lives.”
‘Alday, who fled the Walmart parking lot in a 2011 Ford Escape, was subsequently pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy who asked if there was a firearm in the SUV. “Yes, I have a concealed weapons permit, and you are not taking my gun.” Asked about the gun’s location, Alday replied, “You’re not taking my gun.”
‘Alday twice refused the deputy’s request to exit the auto, and was tasered when she “reached over the console for something in the passenger seat.” Alday was then dragged from the car and handcuffed. The gun was found in the vehicle’s center console’.
‘Alday was taken into police custody and charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery’.

‘A group of House Republicans said Tuesday that a bill to fund the federal government should include provisions targeting the contraception mandate in President Obama’s healthcare law’.
GOP lawmakers reintroduced a bill Tuesday to repeal the contraception mandate.
“This attack on religious freedom demands immediate congressional action,” the 14 lawmakers wrote. “Nothing short of a full exemption for both nonprofit and for-profit entities will satisfy the demands of the Constitution and common sense.”
‘The healthcare law requires most employers to cover contraception in their employees’ health plans, without charging a co-pay or deductible, alongside a series of other preventive services’.
‘Churches and houses of worship are exempt. Religious-affiliated employers, such as Catholic hospitals, don’t have to pay for the coverage directly, but their insurance companies must still offer it to employees without any cost-sharing’.
‘Religious groups want a much broader exemption — one that would allow any employer to opt out of the mandate based on his or her religious beliefs’.
