My rant on Rush Limbaugh's claims that The Dark Knight Rises is an Attack on Romney
Rush Limbaugh if you could be so kind and please get the hell out of the business. You are a joke, no one takes you seriously anymore and after the whole slut mess you are running out of time. Do you really believe that DC, Warner Brothers and Christopher Nolan are all part of a vast Left wing Conspiracy created the Dark Knight Rises villain with the idea of undermining Romney and his time at Bain.
Here are some Facts for ya Rush; Bane was created in 1992, before Romney even ran for a public office, by Chuck Dixon, Graham Nolan, and Doug Moench with his debut coming in January 1993. So unless DC Comics had some amazing ability to know that in 2012 there would be a Batman film coming out in an election year with a then unknown Mitt Romney running for President and that is time at Bain would be an issue its highly unlikely the Character of Bane has anything to do with Mitt Romney.
A second fact for you, Heath Ledger died suddenly in 2008, which some believe caused Christopher Nolan to have to come up with a new villain for his third and final film which he started working on in late 2008, coming up with the idea to use Bane in 2009, before Romney announced he was running for office though some did think he would likely run again and long before he was even a front runner, Sarah Palin was the front runner at the time. So once again we see that There is no vast Conspiracy unless everyone involved in the film had the ability to see the future. Which we know wasn't the case with Warner Brothers as they wanted The Riddler. What's next, The President had Heath Ledger murdered so Nolan would use Bane.
So Rush if today proved anything it was how much of a joke you have become as your claims have been met with mocking and laughing. So its time to hang it up and never bother us again
My thoughts from this weeks events
Scott Walker has again made me wonder what is wrong with politics today. For 200 years this country has sat down and discussed issues that mattered to the American People. They debated the best course of action and compromised when needed. Today members on both sides refuse to talk to the other, the Tea Party likes to say "We want our country back." Me, I want my Government Back. I want the Government that was made for the People by the people. I want the Government where you could debate all day long and then go out and have drinks with the other party at night, I want the Government that protected workers and the middle class and I want the Government the inspired the world
Scott Walker needs to sit down with union, Republican, and Democratic leaders and ignore the Special interests, the billionaires and Fox News and then do what is right for the people of this great state and discuss the issues that matter to the millions of Blue collar Middle class Wisconsinites who have done nothing but try and earn a living and support their families. We are not upset over the loss of benefits, we understand cuts have to be made we've been doing things like this for 50 years. Losing our rights as workers to assemble and negotiate for better wages and benefits is far worse then losing some benefits for a short time. We're protesting Scott Walkers refusal to even talk with leaders to reach a solution instead he shoves his plan down on us and says it's his way or the highway, that isn't how you govern.
The Truth is this, we in Wisconsin do not have a budget crisis. We had a far worse crisis two years ago and made it through just fine with out Cutting anything from the workers. We were on track to have 127 million dollars at the end of the Budget cycle in June until Scottie pushed through 150 million dollars in tax cuts to the rich and business owners coming in from out of state.
Well it's been 10 years since I first started on this little journey of mine. I first signed up for a message Board August 9th, 2000 for a little board called UNJOE. It no longer exists anymore in fact ezboard itself no longer exists it has since become Yuku and only 1 board from my early days is still running, that being the NJOE. I keep in touch with a few of the friends I made then, but it's kind of funny in a way. Many were kids in High School and now some are married, about to be married and have kids of there own. What a difference 10 years makes I guess not only personally but globally as well. Never thought I'd be posting 10 years later under the same name.
So Happy Birthday Rogue9a.
The Best and Worst Person of the week
This weeks Best and Worst people is late due to a cold I had over the weekend, that said I wasn't able to do much research for Best and Worst that said here we go
Best People, Congrats go out to Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton for not only tying the not but doing it on their terms. It would have been so easy to turn the wedding into some kind of Political event seeing as the Parents involved included a Former President, the Current Sec. of State and a former congresswoman from Pennsylvania. But they made it a private affair and kept prying eyes out by the use of tents, the FAA declaring a no fly zone around the area also helped and was a good idea considering who was there. We've watched Chelsea grow up so for a lot of ways her wedding meant a lot to many people. So Congrats on the wedding and for being named This weeks Best People of the week.
In related news, the Worst People goes to the Media who descended on the small New York Town of Rhinebeck to report on anything and everything that maybe even remotely involved. Now It's understandable that the press would be there to report but reporting that people claimed to have seen Oprah's Dog is a bit much. Then there is the reported Price tag that the media reported as being as little as 2 million to as high as 6 million when there is no info out there to even estimate how much it would cost and when it comes down to it why to we care now I'm sure some far right nuts will claim tax money was used but the whole wedding is coming out of the families pockets it makes no difference how much money was spent. We don't need up to the minute updates from a wedding you are no where near there are more important things to report on. For spending all day not telling anyone anything the Media is the Worst People of the Week
The Best and Worst Person of the week
This weeks best person are the counter protesters who appeared at Comic Con on Thursday to counter the planed Westboro Baptist Church protest. Instead of meeting the group with anger they spoofed the so called Church with signs saying God hates Jedi, God hates Kittens, and so on. Several of the protesters appeared in costume from Bender to a member of Starfleet. Even Buddy Jesus appeared. Bravo for during what could have been a hateful display into one that was ignored.
This weeks worst people are both Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, we've all heard the tapes by now, which is the first part this post. Mel Gibson, has no excuse for the things he has repeatedly said in those tapes, the fact this isn't the first time makes things even worse, if he isn't ashamed of himself he should be he is a man clearly in need of an intervention not for the sake of his career, there is little that can be done at this point to save that, but for the sake of his life. Oksana Grigorieva, you should have let things be, now with it looking as if the tapes were partly edited and the fact that it appears you pretty much Blackmailed Mel doesn't put you in the best light and now much of the favorable opinion you had has degraded while this doesn't make what Mel did any less wrong extortion is a crime in this country, being stupid and not knowing when to shut up isn't. The Two of you both deserve to be the worst people of the week for the crap you both have been pulling.
