Gollywood finds surrendering difficult

Would you buy a movie from this guy?

Leslie Unger, the Acadamy's director of communications, told AFP on Friday that a group of members are in Iran on a completely private initiative for educational and creative exchange and with no political agenda."

She confirmed Iranian media reports saying the delegation included AMPAS president Sid Ganis, former president Frank Pierson, actress Annette Bening and producer William Horberg.

Uh, the problem is that these people forgot to tell the Muslims that this was about hugs and kisses and all that stuff.

The art advisor to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged a visiting Hollywood delegation to apologise for "insults and slanders" about Iranians in films, the ISNA news agency reported on Saturday.
"(Iranian) cinema officials will only have the right to have official sessions with... Hollywood movie makers when they apologise to the Iranians for their 30 years of insults and slanders," Javad Shamaghdari said


But I am sure that there can be an ass kissing ceremony arranged with suitable derogatory comments about Bush.... wait. Bush be gone. I guess now they'll have to condemn the evil Repubs...

A little music, Sam!

A call to action

Attention! Attention! The following is a canned and standard response made whenever I find a Demo not wanting to take responsibility for the economy.

The Demos have had control of Congress for over two years. When they took over in 2/2007 unemployment was under 5%, gasoline was around $2.00 and the Dow around 14000…

By mid summer of 2008 the unemployment rate was going straight up, the market was going straight down and gasoline was holding steady at around $4.00-$4.50. All that in a short 17 months. In October the Democrats passed a bank bailout bill with no controls in it so the bankers did what came naturally, they stole their share and called it bonuses. Actually executives of Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac had been doing that for years, but since those guys were Demos no one thought anything about it.

Since Hussein’s election the trend continues with the market going down with unemployment and gasoline prices going up.

But since it only took the Demos 17 months to screw it up and 24 months to absolutely destroy it, maybe we can get back to 2000 levels by the third month of the Pallin administration. That would be April 2009.

But that isn't going to happen if all you Repubs in Washington keep on laying around like a whipped puppy dog whining that ACRON stole the election, that the Lame Stream Media was for Hussein and unfair to you and that McCain ran the worst campaign in history.

So? You boys and girls got fat and lazy and had your head handed to you by the other side who was quicker, faster and meaner. They said what you could say.... Remember the ban by McCain on calling Hussein, Hussein? They ignored the war on terror, and so did you. Think maybe a few reminders of 9/11 and what the radical Muslims want to do would have helped focused folks on the real issues? Worse, you ignored the energy issue, something that was demonstrably the Lefties and environmental wackos fault and hitting everyone in the pocketbook.

Let us face the music dear Repubs and Conservatives of all shades, you didn't man up. You wimped out big time and got your butt kicked and you deserve it, but the country doesn't. A large part of the folks out there don't have a clue and will never have a clue and it is your job to protect them. You failed.

And now all you can do is run around screaming the sky is failing. Well, it is and three of you helped pull it down a few days ago. Tell me. Any of you tell your peers that they screwed the pooch? Hell, on any football team someone will get in a team member's face when they f'up on big plays. Can't find Specter and Friend's telephone number? They are in the book dear Repubs.

You need to start kicking butts and taking names. Any of you who vote for this budget need to be called out in front of God and the world. You have veto power, use it. Be nasty. Be ugly. Start telling the truth. Get the facts out there. Call press conferences. Write editorials. Start blogs.

Show the courage you demand of the people we have sent off to war. Fight.
