Blunk Droggong at it's Best

2 run and cokes, Im not drunk, but I though the title was cool.

I'm playing Eve Online and am harvesting a semi-rare gas in quantities that make me think there is a mistake somewhere. I've got 3 times the amount of this gas that I expected and it's still coming, but as you can expect, it it kinda boring, so the rum & cokes and this posting (after I read all the news and some blogs).

As for the direction this nation is taking, I fully hope and expect a Constitutional Convention (hereafter referred to as 'CC') after the next election cycle will eliminate many undesirable (and unConstitutional) steps the current administration has made. I used to fear a CC since I expected the left to use it to change the country, now I see Mainstream America using it to clarify the Constitution. Just imagine an Amendment clearly stating that a single payer system is illegal

That's about the time I expect the peace protesters to use the methods of the religion of peace and obama, or maybe Rahm, to promise us 7 years of peace.

Go see Avatar!! You'll enjoy the move and be amazed at the 3-D.

This is the season where the celebration of our Lord's birth has united people in worse conditions than we'll ever face.

Movie Reviews

Transformers II: Revenge of the Fallen
Didn't meet the standard of the first one. I won't bore you with my criticisms.

Star Trek
Go see it. It's as good, if not better, then you've heard it is (assuming you read the same blogs I read).

The 3-D isn't 3-D. 3-D movies look flat with visual distortions that try to twist your brain into saying "oh, that mop handle is poking out of the screen". The 3-D in Avatar is more like realism in which there is is rich texture and you can't even begin to fathom where the flat screen is. Everything, boulders, ferns, you name it has a true presence of depth throughout the movie.

I hadn't expected Avatar to live up to it's revolutionary industry changing status, but having seen it, I think it may. After all, for the theater industry to succeed, they need to offer us something that we can't get at home. I think they've found it.

It was also nice seeing aliens that didn't look like humans in costume. Even though they were human enough to relate to and like.

Go see it. You will enjoy it. I plan to see it again, in the theater and that is the best compliment I can give a movie.

Loss of Respect

World Net Daily continues to lose my respect.

The other day I was reading an article by one of their named columnists. At the time I had no time to comment on it. I don't recall his name. But it continues to bother me, so I come here and vent.

President Obama is not stopping Congress from investigating the events surrounding Major Nidal Hasan as stated. Sure there is hypocrisy where the White House involves itself in a reported breaking and entering in Cambridge, but refuses to get involved in a much larger crime. What I want to point out is the articles author's lack of understanding of how the US Federal Government works, mainly the separation of powers.

The US Federal Government is made up of 3 distinct branches of power. Two of which are Congress and the President. While Congress has the direct power to remove the President while the President doesn't have the direct power to remove Congressmen tells me that Congress has more power than the President.

The President can't tell Congress what to do. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and their crüe are happily cooperating with the President. They are all complicit in the danger the PC environment presents.

I've had the same argument with a local am talk show host who fancies himself a conservative. I'm just sick of hearing it.

Searching WND for 'Cambridge' I found the article.
