18 Fun Facts About 'The Naked Gun'
Post Date: 2015-12-05 13:50:05 by Deckard
Image credit: YouTube After his career-changing performance in Airplane!, Leslie Nielsen teamed up with Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and David Zucker again for the ABC parody show Police Squad! in 1982. After six episodes, it was canceled (though some people were clearly watching it, as it was nominated for two Emmy Awards). Six years later, the show found new life and pronounced success as a comedy movie franchise, beginning with 1988s The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!. Nielsen returned as detective Frank Drebin, an inept police officer who uncovers an assassination plot against Queen Elizabeth II, and falls for the villain Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo ...
Robert Loggia, movie and TV tough guy, dies at 85
Post Date: 2015-12-04 19:50:45 by cranky
Oscar-nominated actor Robert Loggia, who was known for gravelly voiced gangsters from "Scarface" to "The Sopranos" but who was most endearing as Tom Hanks' kid-at-heart toy-company boss in "Big," has died. He was 85. Loggia's wife Aubrey Loggia said he died Friday at his home in Los Angeles after a five year battle with Alzheimer's. "His poor body gave up," she said. "He loved being an actor and he loved his life." Hanks expressed his grief on Twitter. "A great actor in heart and soul," Hanks wrote. "A sad day." A solidly built man with a rugged face and rough voice, Loggia fit neatly into gangster movies, ...
Golden Disobedience (When My Parents Disobeyed FDR)

This week, wed like to post a fun article by our friend, Sandy Sandfort. Sandy is a wealth of interesting stories, and he has a new website in the works. If youd like to be notified when it goes live, send a note to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Inertia is a human frailty. Too often, we go along to get along. We conform. Because of this, those who claim authority can get most of us to do their bidding if it comes with a plausible justification and is only incremental. We get nickel-and-dimed to death, the death of a thousand cuts. Back on April 5, 1933, His Majesty, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), had a pen and a telephone. So he issued Executive Order 6102, which made ...

My formerly 89 year old father's ashes were interred today at a military cemetary - in northern Burlington County New Jersey. I guess my Mom felt those ashes needed to age in the closet for a year.

Majority of Americans Feel Like ‘Stranger in Own Country’
Post Date: 2015-11-20 17:50:14 by cranky
A Super PAC tied to Ohio Governor John Kasich is annnouncing a new multi-million dollar effort to torpedo Donald Trumps campaign for the Republican nomination. Trumps continued dominance of national and state-level polling has vexed the GOP establishment and pushed it to near-panic as voting nears. A recent survey of public attitudes by Reuters/Ispos, though, suggests caution for the GOP establishment. Whatever failings there may be in his specific policies, Donald Trumps campaign has tapped into a strong, visceral feeling of millions of Americans. Seeking to destroy Trump, the candidate, may further alienate the Republican party from a rapidly growing block of voters. ...
Captain Paul Watson's Thoughts on the Attacks in Paris
Post Date: 2015-11-16 22:11:07 by ebonytwix
My Thoughts From Paris Commentary by Captain Paul Watson I have just now returned to Paris from Provence. The terrorist assault in Paris happened on Friday, just three days ago. I had not had a chance to fully appreciate the gravity of the situation until today but that did not stop some people from sending me angry messages chastising me for not immediately addressing the situation along with messages demanding that I pray for the victims or that I post a French tri-colour on my page. I have not addressed the situation in Beirut or in Kenya yet either. Things are a little different now than when I left ten days ago for southern France. Far fewer tourists, barricades before Notre Dame and I ...

Orwell Estate Sends Copyright Takedown Over the Number “1984”
Post Date: 2015-10-27 13:53:40 by Orwellian Nightmare
The Orwell estate is cracking down on people who dare to use the number "1984" without permission. In a truly Orwellian move they have sent a takedown request, targeting an Internet radio host, for selling T-shirts that feature the four iconic numbers. George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic book that describes a rather dystopian future with surveillance and control as central themes. The author himself passed away in 1950 and currently his rights are controlled and protected by the Orwell estate. Ironically, the estate itself has gained a reputation for exerting tight control of copyrights and trademarks, surveilling the Internet for possible offenses. This is ...

1. They still remember the words to "I Want To Hold Your Hand." The fab four, as the Beatles were known, took the world by storm. Their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 9, 1964 was the highest rated show in TV history at the time. It's also been claimed that not a single crime was reported during the time of their performance. 2. They get the joke when someone says "what kind of world do we want to leave for Keith Richards?"

11 Police State Stories by “The Onion” that Could Very Well Be True

With all of the ridiculous new regulations, coddling, and societal mores that seem to be the norm these days, its a miracle those of us over 30 survived our childhoods. Heres the problem with all of this babying: it creates a society of weenies. There wont be more rebels because this generation has been frightened into submission and apathy through a deliberately orchestrated culture of fear. No one will have faced adventure and lived to greatly embroider the story. Kids are brainwashed yes, brainwashed into believing that the mere thought of a gun means youre a psychotic killer waiting for a place to rampage. They are terrified to do anything when ...

Sorry, Girls! But The Smartest People In The World Are All Men
Post Date: 2015-10-02 20:10:27 by cranky
Were constantly told that sexism and stereotypes are what hold women back in maths, engineering and tech. But its a lie. The real reason there arent more female astrophysicists is that the number of really, really smart girls is minuscule. Sorry, no offence, but its true. Of course theres the odd mould-breaking chick brainiac who gets a lot of press attention. But theyre in the minority, and not because girls are put off by some mythical male-dominated patriarchy. Theres little doubt that men occupy more of the higher end of the IQ scale. Every study comes out the same. IQ isnt a perfect measure of everything, but its the best indicator ...

as depicted in this sketch from The Kentucky Fried Movie back in 1977. What else can you say? The only truth that will be told to the masses is through satire but at least its good satire.

Who are the real perpetrators? Look at who controlled the cover up, and who holds the reins of power. Read more:JFK Assassination at 50: Liberty Died With ItCreepy!

Don Henley: Kanye West Is 'Arrogant,' Frank Ocean a 'Talentless Prick'

A year after complaining about Frank Ocean sampling "Hotel California," Eagles singer and drummer Don Henley is still bitter. The R&B singer had used the entirety of the Eagles hit in his song, "American Wedding," on his 2011 mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra. "I didn't think he was cool," Henley told The Guardian in a new interview. "I thought he was a talentless little prick. And I still do."Don Henley on 'Sloppy' Songwriting and Cultural DecayHenley had previously asserted that he felt Ocean did not understand or respect intellectual property, a point he reiterated in the new interview.

MK ULTRA, LSD and the Military Industrial Music Industry
Post Date: 2015-09-24 09:23:09 by Deckard
This program is mind blowing, when you consider the many connections between pop culture and music icons, and the military industrial complex. There is obviously a great deal that hasnt been explained to the naive and believing public, who identify with these figures, and refuse to ask critical questions that could diminish the popular images with whom they identify. Nevertheless, there are endless connections between these celebrated individuals and ongoing experiments in MK Ultra and mind control perhaps operating on the mass population level. If even some of this is true, it is interesting and significant; but more so, this is a window into the doors of perception that were ...

Question about ads and FireFox
Post Date: 2015-09-20 10:39:23 by Justified
I have a question about Firefox or Flashplayer. It seems that the ads overload my computer. Basically slow it down to a crawl. I have to load up Task Manager and delete "flash" to get back to normal. From what I have detected is that it tries to run all ads at once. Then I go in and end "FlashPlayerPlugin_18_0_0_232" to get control back. Just guessing but it seems as if Firefox is treating the whole site as one page being seen by the user and starts them all up. Im a dummy when it comes to web stuff or just dangerous enough to blow up my computer! LOL Any advise would be nice. Thanks.
