    How about nobody playing Bond?

    I grew up with the first Bond movies and loved them. And while I don’t like his politics, I will admit that Craig did manage to bring a small amount of life back into it.

    But really, this story has simply been told enough times. Can’t anybody think of anything new?

    And surprisingly, he has.

    I make the following predictions:

    He will NEVER commit another crime.
    He will NEVER have another confrontation with the police.
    HE will NEVER give society any reason to fear or worry about him.

    A complete and total turn around!!!!

    “This may turn out to be the most imaginative PR campaign ever to gin up interest in at best a mediocre movie.”

    Actually, I think it may turn out to be much more than that! Let’s consider all the fallout.

    A couple of under-performing executives made unflattering remarks about certain overpaid, underachieving actors and directors. The commented personnel get angry and leave (a win for Sony), Sony ‘does the right thing’ and gets rid of the people that made the remarks in the first place (another win for Sony).

    Looks like Sony takes a crappy movie, makes it into a hit, and unloads a lot of overpriced deadwood. Not a bad days work.

  • The Real Racist Conspiracy In Ferguson

    I cannot think of a name to servo1969
    As a friend and shooting companion of several current and retired cops, let me spell this out in plain English:

    1. Cops, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, aren't interested in doing anymore work than they have to.

    2. If a cop finishes his shift without talking to a single citizen, he is paid the same amount as if he is in three deadly gunfights and two wrestling matches with people bigger than him.

    THEREFORE: There is absolutely no profit in fighting or hassling with anybody unless you must for some reason.

    (There will be obligatory post to this one saying, ‘oh yea, will some cop just did (insert something) to me for no reason.’ But in actuality, there always is some reason.)

    Much of what goes down between cops and minorities actually follows this pattern.

    - Groups of minority youths are hanging around disrupting business and causing the business owners to go broke.

    - The business owners constantly call the police complaining.

    - Eventually, during the pre shift meeting, the police leadership begins berating the patrols with, ‘do something to get these people to stop callings us.’

    Now the stage is set.

    The cops will initially ignore these request. After a few more pre shift meetings, they will be forced into doing something. Leading to the inevitable scene on CNN of’ “ we were just standing there doing nothing and suddenly these cops come by and start ordering us around like we was dogs.”

    I can assure you that the average cop could be perfectly happy avoiding all of this crap entirely. It is nothing but a risk, a pain in the butt, lots of paperwork, and sometimes worse - and there is no more money in it for them. The bullsh@t that is being sprouted on TV that cops willing do this or enjoy doing this is total crap. If these people had jobs and were off the streets, the LAST people that would complain about it would be cops.

    “Because people are more apt to cluster based on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.”

    Not totally sure I agree with that. One of my best friends is African American. He has told the story many times of how he joined the Army the minute he could, “just to get away from that life.” He also lived in a minuscule garage apartment while he was going to college so he could “stay away from that crazy stuff.”

    Needless to say, he has been quite successful in life. I think anyone of actual ‘character’ quickly realizes that the ‘ghetto-thug’ lifestyle is a total dead end and gets away from it as quick as they can.

    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep dog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed. The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours.

    Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.”

    Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

    “If I were a teacher in public schools today, I would be looking for a landing zone outside the public school business.”

    A friend of ours was a public school teacher for over 20 years. She abruptly quit and went to work at a Catholic school. Interesting facts:

    She’s not Catholic
    She took over a $15k per year pay cut
    She has to teach more classes

    Why? As she explains it, the answer is simple. At the Catholic school, somebody starts acting up in her class and they are OUT. Gone, bye-bye, adios. In public school it was total chaos in the classroom with nothing that could be done about it. Or as she says, “I’m actually teaching again.”

And I’m not saying they can’t be used, but facts are facts. We’ve been building aircraft out of metal for almost 90 years, and we know all of its strengths and limitations. Composites are relatively new, and still have lots of unknowns.

    Have a family member that was a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy. Never married, Navy through and through. Everyone figured he’d stay 30 and for as many years beyond that that he could get approved.

    Quit after 24.

    He told me that once ships were forced to accept women, everything went to hell in a hand basket. Before women, two guys would have a beef. Some ‘remote’ place on the ship would be found and they’d have at it. With the bad blood out of their systems, they’d be arm in arm having a beer later that evening. Once women showed up, disagreements became feuds that went on and on. And were truly violent.

    And in many ways it was even worse for women. Betty Jo Bean Sprout, good Christian girl from Iowa would show up. Wouldn’t take but just a few weeks before she’d realize that with the ratio of men to women, she was sitting on a check book with an unlimited balance. He said to me, “what the hell are these parents going to think - they send me a sweet honest, Christian girl, and a year later I send them back a manipulating little slut.”

    The last straw came during the first Gulf War. He was on a smaller ship, some kind of fast transport. They sat in the Gulf for nearly six months. Apparently they had a cargo that the military wanted close by, but could not set foot on land unless really bad stuff happened. There was something like 30 women on board, and when they got back to dock, 11 were pregnant. The Captain called him in and said, “Chief this is going on your record because you should have found a way to keep this under control!” What, metal chastity belts?

    That was over 20 years ago. I can hardly imagine what it is like today.

    Let's see...

    A month or so ago some numb-skull is caught punching his girl friend in and elevator - and a huge cry goes up about abusing women. (And I am in agreement)

    Now there is a huge cry about lowering standards so more women can be in combat (Which I am completely against)

    And anyone that supports both of these arguments is a complete asshat. Women shouldn't be punched by men, and women DO NOT belong in combat (Where many things worse than punching will occur.) But what do you bet many of the people condemning the punching are also demanding women be allowed in combat.

    And about as worthless as most of the other traffic enforcement.

    Most of us professional drunks know all the back ways to take home. They are never going to set up check points there because of the lack of traffic (and therefore, profit!).

    “These checkpoints are about ticket revenue “

    Virtually EVERYTHING done by traffic cops is about ticket revenue. Traffic police contribute NOTHING to traffic safety.

    Disagree?

    Check to see if anyone in your city publishes a listing of the most dangerous street and intersections (somebody does in most cities). Now think when the last time you saw a radar trap or patrol car at one of those places.

    Now think of a nice long straight road, where there have been no accidents listed, but provides good long sight lines for a radar gun and plenty of shoulder room to pull cars over. Yep, it's the same in every city. Traffic laws are ‘enforced’ where lots of tickets can be written in an hour.

    That's traffic ‘safety’ for you.

Within two years, every one of the Priest I had grown up with was GONE. Pretty much all the lay people resigned. And a letter was sent from the Bishop, and read during the sermon at every mass, proclaiming how proud he was of the ‘progress’ that had been made.

    Funny you mention that. There was a guy that lived in our neighborhood and we went to school with, that did just that. Sometime about 1985 or 86 he got hold of my e-mail, as well as a couple of other guys that had also went into the service during Nam. Wrote this long invitation about how we all should meet someplace and talk about our ‘experiences.” I sent him a reply with two names on it and said, “get them to attend and I'll be there.” Of course they were two guys from the neighborhood that died in Nam.

    I came home about the same time on a three day. Went to Church with my family, only to hear the priest say that we should “pray for those brave young men that had the courage to follow their convictions and flee rather than be part of such a war.”

    That afternoon, in private, I told my Dad (World War II vet) that I’d never be back. He said he couldn’t blame me and he was personally disgusted, but he had my brothers and sisters to think about (all younger and in Catholic Schools) and he would have to keep going no matter what.

    Sorry, but I disagree with the very premise of that statement. I was raised a Catholic in the 50s and 60s. I never left the Church, the Church left me. After an extreme hard left turn, the Church I had been raised in was gone. By the mid 1970’s there was hardly anything remaining.

    The real question should be, “Why did the Catholic Church turn away from millions of its members?”

    Well obviously he did it from the grave - everyone knows that.

    I should have written Plumbers OF Watergate. Yes Hoover died a couple of months before. But both Liddy and Hunt said they were being stalked for more than a year, and they knew Hoover was behind it. Interestingly enough, it was really all for naught. There was nothing the democrats had that could have stopped Nixon, but his need to know forced the Plumbers to continue on when they already knew someone was setting them up.

    Nixon was worried that the democrats ‘had’ something on him. He had set up his own group of people to ‘investigate’ such things. Often Presidents had Hoover do these kinds of things, thus obligating themselves to him.

    Nixon mentions Hoover on several of his office tapes, the most infamous being in late 1971, when he said, “as soon as I am reelected I'm getting rid of that old bastard.” Hoover could not get ‘up’ on Nixon and feared that his time had come. As it would turn out, he died before Nixon could fire him.

    There has been clear evidence that someone knew about Nixon's ‘plumbers’ and had been feeding information to the justice department as early as 1970. E. Howard Hunt sated several times that he ‘knew’ it was Hoover that was tracking them and blown the whistle.

    It's rather funny that liberals try to link Nixon and Hoover together as if they were great conspirators. The actual truth is:

    FDR (D) - allowed Hoover to report to him directly and had him spy on Walter Reuther and the teamsters.

    Truman (D) - didn't like Hoover but was afraid to act.

    Eisenhower (R) could not stand Hoover and minimized him. Swore he would get rid of him before he left office. The U2 incident derailed those plans.

    Kennedy (D) Used Hoover to spy on the civil rights movement and to ‘fix’ situations involving beds JFK shouldn't have been sleeping in. The wire tap authorizations Hoover used on Martin Luther King were signed by Bobby Kennedy (boy does that make liberals heads explode!)

    LBJ (D) Used Hoover to spy on the civil rights movement and the antiwar movement.

    Nixon (R) -Zip

    That facts make it very clear - almost ALL of the abuses that Hoover committed and liberals go so crazy over, happened while a democrat was President.

    Hoover eventually got control over LBJ over the civil rights and anti-war movements. LBJ was convinced the commies were behind both, and had Hoover spy on them. Of course that was how Hoover worked. Once he got someone in bed with him engaging in some illegal act, he had them.

    The only one who really held this off was Nixon. He set up his own group to do such things so he would not be in debt to Hoover (the ‘Plumbers” as they were called.) It really PO’d Hoover, and most people feel it was him that ratted out the Plumbers at the Watergate Hotel.

    While he was young and charismatic, many of his policies were NOT popular. And those policies had made a LOT of enemies. Could that have translated into an upset? We'll really never know.

    Once he was killed, people I had heard cussing him out just a couple of weeks before, now all spoke of him as a saint. Like most 13 year olds at the time, I thought he was great - but then we didn't vote.

    I’ll be darned. I guess you can look as American as apple pie and still be rotten inside.

    “who was a beneficiary of help from J. Edgar Hoover”

    Not hardly. No one was as sad to see Kennedy go as was Hoover.

    JFK had been caught fooling around with a diplomats wife. Hoover grabbed all the evidence and cleaned things up. One month before Dallas, Kennedy did something he had sworn he’d never do - called Hoover into his office and asked him to stay on as director.

    Hoover had JFK right where he liked to have people - in his pocket. He had much less on LBJ and had a lot harder time getting him under control, although he eventually did.

    “JFKs daddy enlisted the help of his old mafia buddies to get them to get his son elected president.”

    The detailed story to this is that this act is what lead to the total pollution of organized labor by the mob.

    The Archbishop of Boston helped Joe get his hands on lots of cash, but he needed a way to get it handed out to union bosses so as to get them to have their people vote for JFK. To take this money around and distribute it, Joe had the mob as bag men. Once the mob realized how easy (and cheap) it was to influence shop stewards and low level union bosses, they didn’t end it with the 1960 election. That was how so many unions were taken over by pro mob people, pension funds were raided, etc, etc.

    Eminem, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, and the Zac Brown band are slated to perform. Celebrities like Tom Hanks, John Oliver, Meryl Streep, Jamie Foxx, and Steven Spielberg are also on the docket.

    “Carrie Underwood”? Hanging around with bad company are just incredibly naive?

    LBJ - complete dirt bag but had nothing to do with this crime.

    My No 1 on the list is still the Mafia.

    Rogue elements within the CIA, quite possible.

    Castro and the Russians, pretty unlikely. First, Castro was an obedient lap dog that did not do anything without the Russian’s permission. The Russians were actually a lot smarter and a lot more aware of our political system then people thought. They knew Kennedy’s position on civil rights was creating strong headwinds. They also knew that Joe wasn’t in a position to buy the election as he did in 1960. Killing Kennedy really made sure his policies would continue, and they knew that.

    There is also an outside, but I believe less and less likely possibility - Oswald actually did it. He was crazy enough, and really only needed to get off one lucky shot.

    “How long has it been since her 15 minutes of fame was up? 16 years?”

    Sorry, but she is entitled to as much fame as the “bent one” merits. Personally neither of them has had anything to say that I was interested in for over 20 years. But if we are going to be subjected to that bubble nosed idiot being called a “statesman” I’d say she deserves equal billing.
