About the Uvalde tragedy

Setting aside the President's horrible and despicable remarks from the White House tonight . . . here's a thought . . . we would have more schools with armed resource officers if it weren't for the relentless high volume shrieks of the left wing anti-second amendment brigade.

So if your school or school district is wondering about whether to train and arm a teacher or guidance counselor . . . how about reaching out to some of these Navy Seals or Army Rangers or Force Recon Marines who've been kicked out of the service for refusing to be guinea pigs for Fauci's useless Covid vaccines?

You think that 18 year old loser would have gotten past an armed Army Ranger? Unlikely.

Just a thought.

Britney Spears is naked . . . sort of

As you most certainly know, "singer" Britney Spears has finally escaped her conservatorship. I, myself, have very mixed feelings about those things as I have personally seen them horribly abused. So I'm happy that Brit's been able to get herself free, though I do remember the very questionable behaviour that got her in that situation in the first place.

But she's out now. So how to celebrate? Like any other creature of modern media, she gets nekkid on social media:

Pretty tame stuff to be sure, along the lines of all the other very unsexy pics she was putting out during the lead up to her emancipation. aside: how can someone who's spent their entire professional career marketing herself via her looks, be so utterly incapable of composing an attractive selfy? But what might be to come?

I saw a celeb blind a little while back that suggested that earlier in her career, she did a photoshoot for Playboy that was never published. Without her father controlling her career now, those images might see the light of day.

We'll see.

Megan Fox said it better than I could

megan fox boobs

What?! No, not that one, the Megan Fox that writes for PJ Media

If you may recall, a few days ago Ted Cruz sat in Congress and called the riot on January 6, 2021 a terrorist attack on the Capital." It was a ridiculously hyperbolic statement to make, especially coming from a conservative Republican member of Congress who has eyes on the Presidency.

Tucker Carlson called Cruz out for this on his show, and Cruz went on a night or two later to defend what he said. Many gave him credit for this. I did not. Cruz was the Harvard Debate Champion during his time there, and I had no doubt he would use those skills to weasel out of what he had said. And that was exactly what happened. Despite his clear and unambiguous words on the record, he claimed what he really meant was that those who struggled with the Capital Hill Police were terrorists and said that he had been on the record many times calling those who attack police as terrorists. Which I have no doubt he had, and he took time to ensure this before using this line to cowardly deflect from his obvious pandering to Dems and their joke committee on the events of Jan 6.

I commented on several conservative blogs after the event and got the usual pushback about how awesome Cruz is, and how he'd be a great President and all the things he had done, blah, blah, blah . . .

Problem is, I've always felt Cruz was all talk -- no action. Or since he's from Texas -- all hat, no cattle. He got the sh*t scared out of him a few years ago when soy boy Beto O'Rourke gave him a serious run for his Senate seat, and Cruz wants to stay on the grift for as long as possible. He won't do anything that might be held against him during an election. So it's always the safe route for him.

Enter PJ Media's Megan Fox. She did all the heavy lifting for me, exposing Cruz' very empty resume in Congress. Check out the article here, it's well worth the read. But allow me to excerpt this one passage as she shows the dearth of serious legislation sponsored by Cruz during his time in Congress:

"Looking through his legislative history, Cruz is on a bunch of bills that haven’t gone anywhere. The most recent bills that passed the senate are the United States Army Rangers Veterans of World War II Congressional Gold Medal Act and the Ghost Army Congressional Medal Act. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t seem to be all that important to me considering we are facing the most insane takeover of personal freedoms in our lifetimes. (And also, what’s a Ghost Army? Is this an episode of Scooby-Doo? What are they doing in D.C.?) The most recent bill that became a law with his name on it “establishes measures to monitor, report on, and address corruption and human rights abuses in Nicaragua.
And don’t forget the bill to 'designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 909 West Holiday Drive in Fate, Texas, as the "Ralph Hall Post Office".' Thank God for Ted Cruz, the defender of … the right to name a Post Office after a politician."
And now today, we see Cruz again, "grilling" some nobody from the FBI about provocateurs and undercover agents at the Jan 6 riot. Everyone is making whoopie over this, but what did it accomplish? This chick is sitting in her office (why don't they drag these bums into the Chambers and make them face the music face to face? Screw Covid protocols!) with her shoes off under the desk simply saying "I can't answer that" to every question she was asked. So what was accomplished? Nothing. As usual. Oh Cruz gets more props for being a "tough guy," but other than giving himself some quickie clips for his Facebook page or Twitter feed, we got nothing out of his grand performance. Just like the hearings on the Tech moguls, just like anything with Fauci, etc.

I may like listening to him opine in interviews, but this do nothing Senator doesn't belong behind the Resolute Desk.

America died a little today

Remember this day -- Jan 11, 2021 this is the day totalitarianism took off the mask and let the country and the world see who they are and what power they yield.

For several years now, liberals in the media have laughed and mocked conservatives for their complaints about being silenced on social media and being de-monitized and shadow banned and multiple other attempts to censor speech that they, the left, don't approve of. "Don't like it?" They laugh. "Start your own platforms." Well, someone did. And Parler became the number one app on Apple and Google Play as tens of thousands of fed up conservatives flocked to a platform that wouldn't restrict their First Amendment rights to speak freely.

But as of this morning, Parler is off line. Cut off by Amazon web-hosting services, because a bunch of whiny bitch soyboys in their company wrote a letter to Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, and complained that he was allowing speech they didn't approve of.

Only a few days ago, we saw the major communications platforms shut the President of the United States out. Don't think of this as Trump, think of this as the office. Tech companies just shut down the leader of the free world. Decided his voice should not be heard. And the left cheered. CNN and various manscaped pantiwaists are calling for Fox News and any number of conservative bloggers and writers to be banned and deplatformed (a delightfully orwellian term for censoring someone). How long before something as minor as this blog are wiped off the internet? Are you scared? You should be. Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Jeff Bezos and a company called Alphabet Inc., are now the most powerful entities in the world.

Did you put them in charge? Did you vote for them? Agree to their vision? Perhaps not tacitly, but we have all stood by and allowed Big Tech to take control of every aspect of our lives. They are insinuated into the very fabric of our existence. What to do? Is there anything we can do?

Don't look to politicians, they are all either power hungry facists looking to control every aspect of your life, silence dissent and create a two tiered society with them and their enablers (press/media, useful idiot celebs and the entertainment industry) at the top and the 300+ million other Americans as serfs. This is only a slightly more comfortable version of what Soviet Russia looked like (and probably still does for the most part) back in the cold war era.

The other group of politicians, we'll call them Republicans, don't have any interest in reigning in this horror. Many people, including myself, have been warning about this day for a while now. Republicans in the House and Senate don't care about you, all they care about is riding that gravy train. Oh they make wonderful sounding speaches and spout angry rhetoric (looking right at you Ted Cruz) but they won't actually push for anything. And if you have noticed, they only get loud when they know they are powerless to actually accomplish something. Like now.

Listen to the outcry from R's in Congress. They could have stopped this years ago. Twitter and Facebook are monopolies, have any doubt? Look what they have done in shutting down their competition. This is actual collusion, by the way. But when R's had the chance, they held whimpy little hearings that let Dorsey and Zuckerberg off the hook. I spent 10 years as a union steward doing plenty of grievances and arbitrations, I could have twisted these two soyboys up, but our vaunted betters, all those Harvard debate champs and former prosecutors and such led hearings so feeble, those guys must have been laughing when they got offline from the hearings.

And why did that happen? Because Ted Cruz doesn't want his Twitter account closed, doesn't want his Facebook page erased. He still wants the donations from wealthy corps and lobbyists to fund his campaign. So he and other R's will bark like dogs, but won't do much of anything else. They'll still go on The View and let those dessicated idiot harpies insult them and spout lies and they'll just grin and take it and promote whatever book they've got coming out. And that's the thing see, they want to be in with the in crowd. They want to go to the parties, be pals with the anchors on the very networks calling them a white supremicist, they want to be the noble jobber, never winning, always just there to take a beating to give the illusion that there is an alternative to the one-party country we now have, so they can go to their voters and say "See, I tried. I know I lost but keep sending me money so I can keep up the good fight for you." They are grifters, all of them, plain and simple.

And for the record, everything I've written applies to election fraud as well. The Dems told everyone what they were going to do, how they were. going to steal this election and these losers just stood by and let it happen. Why? Because they'll keep their jobs in the end. You might lose yours, but you and I don't count. Only our betters matter. R's will desperately claim they are the last line of resistence to a socialist movement in this country. But they aren't. That battle has been lost. Dems control all three branches of Government. They have showed the world the template to win any election from now on -- their candidate isn't winning? No problem. Simply stop counting until they can manufacture a couple of hundred thousand ballots with their guy/gal selected on them, start counting again and viola! They win.

Dems are already talking about adding Puerto Rico and DC as states. That will give them a permanent majority in the House. They've already stolen two seats in the Senate, there will probably be more coming along with even more squishes like Romney and Murkowski who will only vote Republican when it's a lost cause so they can virtue signal to their idiot voters who somehow still believe in them.

I don't know what's coming from here. I expect a lot more authoritarianism from the left. More companies punished financially until they toe the Democrat/Socialist line. Will people have the spine to stand against this? Who can say. We disreguard the obvious science that these cloth and paper masks will stop a virus particle that measures less than a micron in size and willingly walk around with our masks on and our heads down like compliant sheep.

I could go on, but this is just a start for me. Guess I'll have to start blogging regularly again. I've got things to say. I'm going to say them while I still can.

Movie review - 6 Underground

6 underground movie poster/review

Ever wonder what the Deadpool movies would look like if Michael Bay directed them? Well here's your chance with this little Netflix number starring Ryan Reynolds and written by the creator of the Deadpool comic, Paul Wernick and co-written by Rhett Reese, one of the co-writers of the Deadpool flicks.

Here Reynolds reprises his role as the Merc with a mouth stars as the billionaire with a mouth -- an inventor/tech/software genius type guy who looks at the world and wonders about all the icky people roaming around free to do awful things without consequence. He finds that simply being rich won't help him change all that. So he decides to form a team to do the dirty work he deems necessary without all that pesky due process and vetted intel getting in the way.

Being brilliant and all, he has this great idea for his team -- no names, only numbers, that way no one can compromise another team member, and if someone is caught or killed? Well, that's hard cheese old man, and he'll just bring in someone to replace them and give them the next number in line. Foreshadowing 101 -- you know that's going to come back to haunt him at some point.

So Reynolds is number 1 of course. Number 2 is a leggy, busty, blonde female killer spy type that has become ubiquitous over the last couple of years. Think Atomic Blonde, Red Sparrow, Black Widow, Anna, Hanna (okay, Saoirse Ronan isn't leggy or busty, but she is blonde, so ...), The Courier, etc.

Number 3 is a doctor. Female, hot, sort of ethnic looking, it took me a while to realize where I had seen her in film before. She played Jules, the sorta love interest of the sorta main characters in that execrable Pacific Rim: Uprising flick.

But so far, so good, we've got a rich brainy guy running the show, a talented killer/spy and a doctor. Now we get to number 4. Some Brit kid who's good (I'll get to that later) at parkour. ?!?!?! Now I'm not rich or brainy and I didn't spend last night in a Holiday Inn Express, but if I'm putting together a team to do covert wetworks and such, a dude whose skillset is running and jumping off crazy places is not only not high on my list, it isn't on the list at all. But if I'm a director looking to make cool action sequences, well . . . it makes sense. So he's in.

The next guy, number 5, is a straight up Mexican hitman. Played by the guy who played a straight up Mexican outlaw in the Antoine Fuqua remake of The Magnificent Seven. He plays the same role here, only better English and hygiene.

Number 6 is the driver. Good idea. Think Baby Driver without the shades and soundtrack. So the team is set, we get their intros during the opening sequence of the film.

And oh my, that opening sequence. After 13 years of making big robot movies where his actors run around shrieking at green screens that a team of geeks in Malaysia will fill with cgi mayhem in post production, Bay gets a chance to work with practical special effects and he's like a kid on a sugar high in the world's biggest toy store.

The car chase goes on for a really long time. The crashes are epic and wildly destructive, bad guys are dispatched with gorey bloody excess and all the while Reynolds runs what has become his patented acting style of panicky screamed dialog mixed with profanity and clever sarcasm.

The sequence finally ends with one of the characters dying. So Reynolds has to recruit another number. This one is a disaffected military sniper who watched in frustration as a suicide bomber blew up a compound with his comrades in it because his superiors wouldn't give him the green light on a kill shot. Reynolds brings this guy on board with the promise he'll never tell him not to pull the trigger. Yeah, about that foreshadowing . . .

So the team is now set. They have a cool hideout in one of those airplane graveyards Bay likes so much. Funny how we never see people sweating like pigs inside those old airplane bodies that would be over 140 degrees on a summer day. Or watch the rain pour through all the holes in the rusted hulks, or . . . well, you get my drift.

Number 7 learns, to his horror, that this team he just sacrificed everything to join (all the team members have their id's erased and are officially dead to the world now) is still on their first mission, and pretty much everything went wrong so far which lead to the car chase/crash that got him here.

The actual mission? A murderous corrupt dictator in Somewhereistan is gassing his own people and doing other awful things while he keeps his benign brother captive on the other side of the world in a sumptuous penthouse prison. So, break out the brother, orchestrate a rebellion, depose the dictator and install the nice guy on the throne. Simple, no?


Along the way lots of action and big sweeping vistas. Lots of Bay's trademark explosions. Everything foreshadowed earlier in the film comes to bear. Bay uses a technique during some shots of literally highlighting what he wants you to pay attention to and I'm not sure if it's him being lazy or just having fun. The getaway car in the opening sequence is neon green in a sea of black chase cars. Number 3 enters a building in a skin tight neon yellow dress while everyone else is dressed in black or dark colors. Made me chuckle a bit.

Number 4's expertise in parkour comes into question as he can't outrun four thugs in business suits as he scampers across rooftops and scaffolding and such. And Reynolds vacillates between comically inept panickiness and a deadly skillset to the point that number 7, after watching Reynolds effortlessly dispatch someone who caught him by surprise speaks for the audience when he says over the coms that "someone has to explain to me where that came from." My answer would be that the writers/star/director couldn't decide what exactly they wanted Reynolds character to be.

Anyways, there's a cool sequence on a luxury yacht towards the end. Everything works out for the best. We see in the opening bit at the hideout that Reynolds character has identified either 10 or 11 people that have to be dealt with. Nice set up, but I doubt we'll see 10 more of these.

Is it worth your time? If you've got Netflix, you've already paid for it. And compared to some of the other drivel there that passes for movies, you could do a lot worse. No nudity, some PG-13 sex (which surprises me for an R rated film made by a guy like Bay who isn't shy about exploiting hot women in his movies), and plenty of bad language.

All in all, it's more of a curiosity watch for me. And I would imagine anyone else. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for it. And since it's basically a made-for-tv flick, I won't be including it with my regular movie review menu. Check it out. Feel free to comment below if you like.

Math is hard

I haven't had a weekday off in a while. So as a treat to myself, I went by Dunkin Donuts to pick up a half dozen donuts for the weekend.

No, I wasn't going to eat them all by myself in one sitting. sheesh

Anyway, I pull up to the window and there's a large, sort of doughy and effeminate young man in a bandana at the register, totally flustered. He waves his arms around for a minute and then asks me to repeat my order. I do and he smiles thankfully to me. The price is $6.09

I hand him a $20 bill and one dime. He turns back to the register and types away.

Then he hands me the dime back. And I'm thinking he's just grace-ing me the nine cents, which is a bit ridiculous (I worked fast food for a while and a penny or two is one thing, anything over that and you're asking for trouble), but I took it and wondered where this was going.

Next come the donuts. And then the kicker.

He gives me $14.02 in change.


I triple counted the bills because I was half expecting to find out he gave me a five instead of a ten, but he didn't and I just drove home, amazed at the whole experience.

How can you f*ck up a transaction like that? I get that he was having a flustery day though I wasn't sure why since there was no line at the drive through, but maybe it was his first day or something. I'm not unsympathetic. But the register gives you the correct change when you ring in what the customer gave you.

Is this where our educational system is taking us? Who's going to build rockets and solve science mysteries and create medicines when we're churning out young folks who can't make change. Being a superstar with your smart phone doesn't actually make you smart, you know?

Celebrity blind of the day

"It didn't take [long for] the alliterate former actress turned escort to find a new 'boyfriend.' As I have told you for the past year, the men have been much older than herself because the men her age are going way younger."

The clue here is "alliterate former actress turned escort" as that is CDAN's shorthand for Lindsay Lohan, who for the past couple of years has been sorta pimping herself out to various sheiks and sultans and such in the middle east who want an American movie star on their arms regardless of how far her star has fallen.

Supposedly Linds might turn up on that Masked Singer show this season, so that might end up being interesting. Especially if she were to win. She actually had some singing talent back in the day and frankly, she had potential as an actress too. Kinda sad how she went off the rails.

Be funny if this blind is revealed to be someone else.
