  • Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "It's A Wonderful Life"(1946)

    You Tube ^ | 1946 | Frank Capra
    Today being Christmas Eve Eve is the inspiration for today's feature. The beloved perennial Christmas classic about a man who sees what life would've been liked if he had never been born. Starring conservative Republican and WWII veteran James Stewart and directed by Republican, pro-American director Frank Capra. Possibly my favorite film of all time.

    25 Horribly Sexist Vintage Ads by Oral Adams Since the 50’s, a lot has changed in way of women’s rights and their duties in and out of the house. I highly doubt any company could get away with phrases like “The Chef [mixer] does everything but cook – that’s what wives are for!” nowadays. Or how about an ad agency pitching a company an idea of a wife bent over her husband’s knee as he prepares to spank her.

    the case of It’s a Wonderful Life. When the film was released in 1946, it was given a 28-year copyright term which was eligible for a 28-year renewal. For whatever reason, a request wasn’t put in for renewal, and it was believed to have fallen into the public domain in 1975. Had it not connected with the American people on its rediscovery, it would have become a resident of dollar DVD bins, like other public domain mainstays such as the Fleischer Superman cartoons or Bill Cosby’s TV movie Tell All My Friends on the Shore. However, the movie studio smelled...

    Question: There is a hysterical clip going around on the internet where Bob Hope after he listens to a fellow describing how zombies walk around in a haze, not thinking only following the orders of their master, Hope then says, "You mean like Democrats". Anyone know the origin of this clip?
  • ‘Sea change’ seen in spouses’ financial roles (many sexist and sexual innuendos)

    It seems we’ve officially left “Leave It to Beaver” behind. In the new dynamics of home economics, it’s not just that men want women to contribute financially to a marriage: The vast majority of men say they wouldn't even mind if their wives brought home the bigger paycheck. That’s not the only gender stereotype that’s being left behind as couples increasingly grapple — as partners — with today’s economic realities, according to our exclusive Elle/msnbc.com Money, Sex and Love survey of nearly 74,000 men and women. “This is a real sea change that’s going on in gender roles,” said Stephanie...
  • Liberals using It's A Wonderful Life to bash Republicans!!! Potter was a Republican???

    Mr. Potter is WinningAll hail Pottersville! Above are two different articles that use the Jimmy Stewart/Donna Reed Holiday classic Its a Wonderful Life as a basis for attacking Republicans. This is a widespread meme, I've seen it in other places but couldn't find them online. Basically these articles suggest that mean old Mr. Potter was obviously a Republican because he worked to keep the people of Beford Falls poor and without the things they wanted. He was always out for himself and profits and paid no mind to the concerns of the little people. Personally I think it's disgusting that...
