    Glenn Beck isn’t known for keeping his opinions to himself, so when he’s unhappy with a service, the people in charge are going to know about it. Beck says he was treated rudely on an American Airlines flight recently just because of who he is, and that the flight attendant refused to open his drink for him or speak politely even though that courtesy was given to every other passenger. “My flight attendant nearly ‑‑ merely barked the word “breakfast” when he came to me,” he said on his show. “When others were politely asked if they cared for anything...

    A lot of lawyers are geeks. A lot of geeks are lawyers. So it should come as no surprise that a lot of judges are Star Trek fans and they arent afraid to show it. Below are my favorite Star Trek quotesfrom the bench:

    The theater was packed. "2016: Obama's America" was playing at the local Midway theater in Lewes, Delaware. The movie run began the Friday before Labor Day and I rejoiced. No one goes to the movies "downey ocean" on Labor Day weekend. I decided to go on Labor Day proper. Let the tourists stay at the beach, I was going to the movies. The place was packed. Oh there were a few empty seats but believe me, I go to those movies all the time, granddaughter in tow, and usually about the same time, a middle of the day hour, a...

    Political scientists from UCLA compare candidates based on 'competence' Most students interpreted 'competence' as 'attractiveness' Mitt Romney scored in the 99th percentile, Sarah Palin in the 95th and Paul Ryan in the 67th 'If the election were decided on looks, it would be no contest' Republican duo Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are one of the hottest tickets this nation has ever seen, and now there's proof that its not just their politics. According to professors at the University of California, Mitt Romney scores in the 99th percentile of all politicians for his looks alone, far outpacing his running mate...

    Consequential Commentary ^ | 9-3-2012 | Mary C. Kirchhoff
    Of her most recent flop, Wanderlust, the family friendly site Movieguide.org writes: Besides adultery and some graphic sexual dialogue, it contains abundant foul language, including many strong obscenities and profanities. It also has some very explicit nudity. Its fair to say that this is very common in todays films, and not unexpected since it did garner an R" rating.
  • Late-night talk shows can't get enough of mocking Clint Eastwood's empty chair (Circling wagons)

    Clint Eastwood is a Hollywood legend, but not all of his movies were smash hits. Hes no stranger to getting poor reviews. But he may never have received worse reviews than the ones hes hearing from late-night talk-show hosts after his performance at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night, where he spent quality time on national television in spirited debate with a figment of his imagination. Amidst the tired rhetoric, empty platitudes and overwrought attacks, a fistful of awesome emerged in the night where it spent 12 minutes on the most important night of Mitt Romneys life yelling...
  • Why Clint Eastwoods speech worked

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 1, 2012 | Professor Jim Huffman, Lewis & Clark Law School
    Clint Eastwoods speech to the Republican National Convention has been panned as badly delivered and condemned as disrespectful. But it drew some of the most enthusiastic response of any speech at the three-day event. Why is that? Are Republicans a bunch of disrespectful yahoos lacking in appreciation for rhetorical skills? No. Their response counters the critics and demonstrates that there is more than one way to deliver a message. My hunch is that a whole lot of people across the political spectrum were both humored and inspired by the iconic actors words. Of course, the talking heads at MSNBC and...

    Actually, I wouldappreciate if people didnt remake anything. Some originalitywould be nice. While, I would appreciateno remakes, this goes double for ones with Arnold Schwarzenegger.It as actually quite interesting how many of Arnolds films were science fiction or fantasy based. It is also interesting how every remake of one of them is a completeflop. The latestedition of Total Recall going to theremake scrap-heap is prime example. Great CGI, No originality and No Arnold equals epic fail. It seems the original which was recently called cheesy by some critic did far better at the box office than the new one which...

    Bill Nye used to be The Science Guy on PBS. Now hes just a godless hater. The former host of the educational TV show targeted to preteens, which aired from 1993 to 1998, said this week that those of us who believe that God created man and woman are idiots. And that we ought not pass along that belief to our children. I say to the grownups, Nye condescended, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, your world thats inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, thats fine. But dont make your kids do it....

  • NBC Reports The Death of Astronaut Neil Young.

    08/26/2012 7:33:20 PM PDT · by djone · 13 replies
    Maybe NBC wallows in loony tunes liberal propaganda because its personnel lacks the competence required for factual reporting. For example: NBC News was one of the first to learn of the death of astronaut Neil Armstrong on Saturday, but instead announced the death of astronaut Neil Young. Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82, read the NBC News headline shortly after 3 pm EST, which was tweeted out and picked up by thousands of others before it was changed. As a refresher, Neil Young is a 66-year-old rock star who is very much alive.

    ... I got out of work at lunch today and I thought I would just pop into the movie theater and watch the movie. The movie was at 12:20. I thought getting there right at noon would not matter. No one is going to be at some political film in the middle of the day. I was wrong. So wrong that I ended up sitting in one of the handicapped seats because the movie was already full when I arrived. I go to the movies almost every Friday after work. I have never been in a packed theater at noon....

    Ive never cared much for TV game shows. Sure, Ive caught Pat Sajak on Wheel of Fortune and Alex Trebek on Jeopardy and Howie Mandel on Deal or No Deal. But neither those, nor any other such game shows, were must-see TV for me. Then, last night, while flipping through channels, I happened upon The American Bible Challenge, which made its debut on GSN, the Game Show Network. Hosted by popular comedian Jeff Foxworthy whom I didnt know was such a devoted Christ follower the show pits three teams of three persons each in a competition in which...

  • "2016 Obama's America" Movie Reviews at Fandango.com

    Someone on another thread mentioned that they didn't see "2016 Obama's America" listed on Fandango's website so I went to check for myself. Turns out it is there and seems to have been there since it's release. (They must have been searching locally and not nationwide.) I found it interesting to read through the reviews. I recommend looking through them to anyone who's interested. It's very entertaining to read the negative reviews and compare them to the positive ones.
  • Former Baywatch Actress Searches for Noahs Ark

    When I caught the news reports that actress Donna DErrico just returned from Turkey, where she climbed Mt.Ararat in search of Noahs Ark, I initially thought it some kind of sacrilegious publicity stunt. After all, DErrico is known for her role as a bikini-wearing vixen on TVs Baywatch, and, before that, as a Playboy magazine centerfold. But I am now convinced the 44-year-old actress is on a spiritual quest: She truly wants to authenticate one of the great stories of the Bible. Indeed, she says, I believe in the Bible. Her interest in Noahs Ark was sparked when she was...
