Remember, remember the 8th of December…
Sorry, it just popped into my head. I didn’t even like that movie.
Well, it’s been quite a week in the news. Nine people were shot to death in ANOTHER “gun-free zone”–this time while Christmas shopping at a mall in Nebraska. You know, this really seems like an issue that affects DIS-ARMED SUBJECTS OF THE GOVERNMENT more than it would affect ARMED CITIZENS OF THE NATION.
It seems that Republicans and Democrats have finally found an issue for which they can provide bi-partisan support. Victory in Iraq? No. Re-affirmation of the Bill of Rights? No. The obvious superiority of low-tax, free-market economy? Oh, HELL no! Bailing out defaulted mortgages! That’s right; it’s very likely that my tax money will soon be spent to reward people who invested foolishly and keep lower-income families from finding affordable homes. I’m so proud. Have I mentioned how much I don’t like Socialism?
And let’s not forget the Religion of Peace (of the Grave): Muslims in Sudan have “pardoned” a British schoolteacher for the HATE-INSPIRING SIN of allowing a child to name a stuffed animal “Muhammed.” The original punishment for the schoolteacher included imprisonment AND LASHING. Why are we respecting these people again?
I finally got to watch Pirates of the Caribbean At World’s End last night. Great special effects, POORLY THOUGHT-OUT PLOT. Let us look at just the ending, as exemplus gratium. Why didn’t Will make Elizabeth a member of his crew? She could spend a lifetime alone, seeing him once every ten years, OR she could have eternal youth exploring the sea with him forever (or until they got tired of each other). Hm.
Well, far be it from me to say that Hollywood is full of idiots… Oh, wait–I say that all the time!
