Agent Cooper: The last time I went to my local movie theater, I saw an add for a one-day-only double feature, coming up soon, for "Avengers" 1 AND "Avengers" 2, both in IMAX 3-D. Now, that's the way to see these movies; it's a whole different experience than seeing a movie in normal 2-D. Besides, Joss is smart enough to include a certain number of specific 3-D effects, like he'll have an explosion ricochet twice and a piece of shrapnel will then come straight at the audience.

Drive-By

Agent Cooper,

Politicians do care, because in the end they need the votes. They listen to lobbyists and interest groups for at least two reasons. First, most of them realize they do not and cannot have the requisite knowledge on all issues that come before them. Second, lobbyists and interest groups can help and hinder them both in legislative efforts and elections. But in the end, neither the lobbyists or the interest groups directly vote - they can only shape the likelihood of a person's voting behavior.

Phoenix, thanks for keeping on top of this

and keeping the roof over our heads.


If you can read this and still want to vote for Hillary, you need to turn the radio off and read it again. Hillary SHOULD be indicted for this, but if not, she should get back into the grandparents' business (as George H. W. Bush used to call it) and enjoy being a grandmother, like Bruce Jenner.


I watched a DVD of "Survival of the Dead" (the latest "Dead" movie) last week and then watched a video essay from George A. Romero (who looks to be around 6'-4" tall, BTW.) I thought it was neat that Romero made the comment that he now, while making these movies, needed to "get off the set." What he meant was that on the set they might have 30-50 people and so in the olden days, they would have someone shoot a zombie and they would have squibs producing a muzzle flash and then a squib "on" the zombie with a blood bag that would go off immediately, BUT if there was like a 4 second delay, they had to do it over, and clean up the blood and re-rig the charges and it might take 2 hours to get another take, but that now they would shoot it in one shot and the actor would give the reaction, and then one guy could later put in the muzzle flash and the blood damage as a CGI effect. This speeds up the process and saves mucho dinero.

Christopher Marlowe,

From a week or so ago, you pondered ...


I wonder if the reward is really worth the fires a candidate goes through to get elected, especially as President?


At the local or state level it might be worth the candle1, perhaps even for Congress. It is not worth it for the presidency. But then, those who seek the presidency see themselves as being able to change, nay save America. If one believes that, then it's worth it, yes? *g* The willingness of Presidents and candidates for president to sacrifice their well-being - and their families - should be an inspiration to us all. They are indeed, saints. God knows where we get them. :)

Well, right now from the Clinton and Bush families.


1 "Worth the candle" Back in the nights of candlelight, when men were playing cards and the candle reached its end, they would look at the pot and their hands and ask if it was worth another candle to continue play.

ChristopherMarlowe: It took me years to really figure out the difference between the new Democrat Party and the new Republican Party. Democrats will promise anything to get any group to vote for them, or to stay with them. Republicans will promise, over and over, not to take your money and use it to support the groups that the Democrats bow down too.

The real truth is neither group can keep their voters without the help of the other party. No party can really do anything about most Government agencies without destroying their leadership.

Do you think that the IRS, NSA, CIA, FBI, Home Security, the Department of Justice, on and on, does not have records on almost anyone in Government? Do you not think, if the personnel in these agencies, if they were being downsized, would not release anything that they had, of a negative nature, to stop the lost of their position or the lost of power and monies to their agency? Everyone has something in their background that they do not want to be released.

Agent Cooper Sorry, but Oz knows that the wolf is not under his control, and he knew how Veruca felt about him, so he ahd to be aware deep-down what would happen. Also, he *chose* not to ask Buffy or Giles for advice. There was a fundamental recklessness to his actions which is a determinant of guilt. Asto what he was epcifically guilty of is another question. I don't say Oz was a cheater.

Wolfguard: I just read an article about that poll data. Not one GOP hopeful has broken more than 20% of the vote. The field is more open than it's been for years. And Nate Silver says 2016 will be a 50/50 toss up. For what that's worth.

Personally, I would argue that our political class is totally out of touch with - and has nothing but contempt for - the populace they are determined to govern. That our apparatus of government is now broken beyond repair and that dissolution, secession or revolution or some fun combination of the above are now inevitable.

Daddycatalso: I respectfully disagree. Oz is not at fault here. He never willingly opted to spend the night with Veruca. There's no intent here. So still not guilty.

Agent Cooper,

For reference ...

Polling (Real Clear Politics)

"... I predict two thirds of the GOP will stay home on election day if that idiot somehow gets the nomination..."ETA

January 2016: Hillary Clinton is sworn into office as the first woman president of the United States.


ETA I see this sort of behavior as evidence that 'true' conservatives' worldview is out of sync with most independent or swing voters. OTOH, there may be a counter argument if one wants to discuss our electoral system, i.e. the popular vote between Romney and Obama was small, but the electoral vote count was large.

Wolfguard: Jeb Bush is running for Obama's third term. A republican? Yeah. That's hilarious. He's even a step DOWN from a sleazy establishment Repub. He's with the "I'll literally do or say ANYTHING to be elected" party. I predict two thirds of the GOP will stay home on election day if that idiot somehow gets the nomination.

And Hillary is just an awful, awful human being. She's literally the embodiment of democratic corruption in particular and dirty political skullduggery in general. On the other hand, she has not one iota of skill, talent or experience to successfully manage or run anything.

I weep for our nation if these are the only two options.

There's a character down in NYC that runs for mayor all the time, he has his own outfit. It's called "The Rent is Too Damn High" party.

I think I'm gonna write HIM in for president.

Or Bruce Campbell. I can't decide.

Christopher Marlowe,

2 of 2

Just before seeing your post, was listening to Smerconish on POTUS. I did not hear the journalist or political analyst he was referencing, but that person had said ...

In the last six presidential elections 18 states had consistently voted for the Democratic candidate. Together they provided 242 electoral votes. He referred to these states as the "Blue Wall". If these states remained true to their past voting behavior, then the Democratic candidate, whoever it was, would need to win only one large state to win the presidency.

That said, Nate Silver, prominent forecaster, believes in the last two presidential elections, 2012 and 2008, Obama did not win these states because they voted Democratic, but rather these states voted Democratic, because Obama was the Democratic candidate. Silver believes the odds of either party winning the 2016 election will be 50/50.

Christopher Marlowe,

1 of 2

Obama has proven a person does not need any executive experience to be elected President of the United States. Does one need extensive legislative experience? Obama had around two years at the federal level and spent most of that campaigning for president.

Most Republicans know Jeb Bush is a Bush of a different color than his brother or father. As to the Democrats, it doesn't matter. The real question is whether there are enough voters who are really open to voting for either party as a function of each party's candidate. If each party concludes there are not, then most effort will be directed at getting out the vote and that's all about emotions.

wolfguard I was just watching a piece that showed Al Hunt discussing the
current presidential candidates with two political experts.

- No viable alternative to Hillary at the moment- Hillary may be her own best
opponent

- Jeb Bush is the top candidate, but has yet to establish himself as something
other than another Bush

- Cruz, Rubio, Rand Paul all have serious problems. Rubio in particular will have
a serious problem with his vote on immigration reform.

It was pointed out that Cruz and Rubio have similar or less experience than Obama
when he was elected and Obama's lack of experience was one of the things the GOP
critized.

Google "natural law party" (I was not able to link to it)

the party that made the biggest
gains is the independent party.
However I don't think they are
necessarily a reliable voting
block. An independent candidate
would still have problems getting
elected. There is an effort to
make all primaries open, that might
be the only way to truly shake up

Christopher Marlowe,

Sunday on POTUS (XM political
junkie station), they interviewed
a bigwig from the Libertarian
party.1 Of Rand Paul
...

He is the most libertarian of the
Republicans, but no Republican is
a Libertarian. He's a 'gateway'
libertarian.

Libertarians believe people
should be able to do what they
want so long as they do not hurt
others or 'take their stuff'.

The two parties want you to
choose between your freedoms. The
Democrats will let you choose who
you marry, but not have a gun to
protect your loved one. The
Republicans will let you have the
gun, but not let you marry who
you want.

Why are the Libertarians not able
to win a presidential election?
The two major parties control the
ballots, rules, etc.


1 Third largest
political party in the US. One in
ten voters (or Americans)
identify themselves as
libertarian.

Chris Marlowe: Weekend was awesome and very busy. After the Winter That Would Not Leave, the weather here in Upstate Siberia has FINALLY broken and we got some nice spring weather for once.

Saturday I washed my car, and then I went to Home Depot and got a new hose, some grass seed and some weed killer all for free with some gift cards I'd been saving up. Score! (It's weird what you get excited about when you have a house.) :-)

Then went to check out the new game store in town with my brother, after which we watched Guardians of the Galaxy. Which was awesome!

Sunday spent some quality time with daughter. Trying to teach her to ride a bike. But she got bored of that and decided to fly a kite and make a mud sculpture instead. :-)

Later on our next door neighbor locked herself out of her house. So, resourceful guy that I am, I broke out her window screen, and sent daughter up through the window to unlock the front door. THAT was interesting.

So how was your weekend?

The Foot of Cupid is a trademark of the BBC television series, Monty Python's
Flying Circus.

It is often seen in the opening animation credits at middle, then at the end of
the opening, dropping down on the title and everything around it with a sound
similar to that of a short burst of flatulence(except during the first season
when a swishing sound is heard instead).

It was based from Agnolo Bronzino's Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time, and has been a
trademark icon for the comedy troupe.

Safari Girl: I saw "American Sniper," "The Theory of Everything." and "The Imitation Game." I would recommend them pretty evenly. Also, I saw "Interstellar," which I liked much of but which was 3-hours long and "Jupiter Ascending," which was just OK.


Tonight on PBS (at least on my local station) is a special on "The Dave Clark Five." This group was an equal rival to The Beatles at one time and had plenty of great hits. If you have never heard of them, you will be amazed. The Beatles just eclipsed them, but if the Beatles had not been there, they would have dominated for a long time.

white wings: "Team America: World Police" WAS hilarious, but I say that with the proviso that the language and some of the situations are so atrocious that you might want to watch it alone. They almost carried one joke too far for even me. The characters are marionettes which the producers, the same guys (Matt Stone and Trey Parker) who produce "South Park" AND who produce "The Book of Mormon" on Broadway, use to various silly purposes. There IS a marionette Sex Scene, for instance. This movie reminded me of the movie "Airplane," which I loved. Some people, actually, did not think "Airplane" was funny because it was so un-life-like, but once they get you laughing then you think everything's funny. The "Team America" movie starts slowly but by the half-way point it gets going and it finishes with some really inspired silliness. Running jokes, Kim Jon Ill (who is North Korean) suffers from the Chinese problem of not being able to pronounce the letter L (making it sound like an R,) so he sings, "I'm so ronry." Another of my favorite aspects of the movie is that the producers mock all the self-important Hollywood actors that are such outspoken proponents of simple-minded drivel, such as Alec Baldwin, and Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins and George Clooney and that ilk. The movie also reminded me of the old TV Series "Thunderbirds" that was a British marionette series that featured rockets and future technology. "Team America: World Police" has fun in its own Macho USA, USA, USA, oblivious way and is definitely not for the PC crowd. But if you're open to self-aware zaniness and raw-languaged, male-centric humor, you might like it. I laughed a lot. I like the humor posture so much, in fact, I might actually try some "South Park" (but I usually have a problem with cartoons.)

The following excerpt is from The Accidental Super Power by Peter
Zeihan.1

"China's regions have little in common and do not naturally cohere.
Getting nationalist, security-minded northerners to cooperate with the
business-savvy central Chinese as well as the occupied southerners is not an
easy task. And that is before you take into account that the interior is a
chunky, seething morass of dissatisfaction ... China needs a social binding
agent, It needs to be a strong adhesive and applied in huge volumes. Without
it China not only spins out into its constituent fragments, but large
numbers of its citizens tend to gather in large groups and go on long walks
together
...
" (p.304)

Emphasis added, LOL

1 The title refers the United States;however, it's an exploration
"...about the advantages and disadvantages that geography imposes..." on
different countries and regions of the world.

Christopher Marlowe,

Once I saw a 60 Minutes (?) piece of Tidwell. As I remember, his method
is to find some topic of interest, read research findings on it, and then
synthesize them along with examples into a book. Unless he's at a lost on
topics, he's probably not likely to revisit the book. OTOH, a publisher might
like to put out a new edition.

Christopher Marlowe,

Malcom Gladwell wrote The Tipping Point, around ten years ago. The
title has since become a phrase used by many to what some folks would call
an "inflection point' or a 'phase change' or a 'discontinuity'. I am not
sure what Gladwell meant by it, but the subtitle was ~~how little things can
make a big difference~~ (like the little Dutch boy with his finger in the duck - see BtVS Gingerbread *g*)

Some colloquial examples ...

'The straw that broke the camel's back'

~ For want of a nail a horse was lost.
For want of a horse a rider was lost.
For want of a rider a knight was lost.
For want of a knight a battle was lost.
For want of a battle a kingdom was lost.
All for the want of a nail.~

The Humuhumunukunukuapua`a (Rhinecanthus rectangulus) was designated the official
state fish of Hawaii on a five year trial basis in 1985. When the trial quietly
lapsed in 1990, no action was taken to either reinstate it or designate a new
species. It wasn't until 2006 that it was realized that Hawaii was without a State
Fish, and the Humuhumunukunukuapua`a was reinstated on a permanent basis.

The Humuhumunukunukuapua`a is also called the rectangular triggerfish, or Hawaiian
triggerfish,

Comma - Love the story of the lawyer who was required to run for governor to receive his inheritance. There was a story in my family that one widow received an inheritance as long as she never married a certain neighbor, but your story takes the eccentric cake.

Enjoy the NRA convention!

Maverick - A new Highlander? I wonder what they'll do with quickening effects in this one. The light show was hard to beat. Earthquakes, perhaps?

Off to succumb to brain-deadness. Long day at work, topped with some job survey. It started asking for qualifications required, and had a long list of tripe like "active listening". All I could think of was how the Scooby Gang tried to remind Xander of what it was in Nightmares, and all he could remember was the teacher's sweater. I shut down the machine and headed for the barn.

BTW, they're rebooting "Highlander" with Dave Bautista from "Guardians of the Galaxy" in the Clancy Brown role as Victor Kruger, the Kurgan. I also enjoyed the Hoochie-Koochie dancers in "Carnvale," one of which, Carla Gallo, we know as Daisy from "Bones."

Trivia Girl: BAAB.


Geoffrey Lewis (short, bald) had a steady acting job playing the best buddy of Clint Eastwood in many of those lightweight movies Eastwood used to make, the ones with his then girlfriend Sondra Locke, like the ones with the Orangutan, or "Bronco Billy" or "The Gauntlet." Those movies BEFORE Eastwood and others started taking him seriously, which was around the time of "Unforgiven." James Best was a nice-looking guy but with a strong menacing hillbilly accent, and he ended up playing off-center characters and often villains. He played the villain, for instance, in "Ode to Billy Joe."

Christopher Marlowe,

- Lincoln ran and won a seat in
the House and then later ran for
Senate, but his support decreased
and he dropped out. He did tell
his remaining supporters to vote
for so and so (remember so-n-
so?).

- Grover Cleveland ran for
president three times, winning in
1884, losing in 1888, then
winning and returning to the
White House in 1892 (he may have
won the popular vote in 1888).

- Nixon ran and lost for
president in 1960 and then ran
and lost for governor of
California in 1962. After the
latter lost, he told reporters he
was getting out of politics and
they wouldn't have Dick Nixon to
kick around anymore.

- After being governor of
California, Reagan failed twice
to get the Republican nomination
as the presidential candidate
(1968?? 1976). ETA Before getting the nominations and winning the elections
in 1980 and 1984.

Talking about losing elections, Ralph 'Shorty' Price, from Barbour County Alabama, ran for the office of Governor of Alabama, every year from 1948 until 1980. The only election that he won, was as a alternate delegate to the 1952 Democratic Convention. The reason that he ran all those years, was he got his inheritance payments, every four years, only if he ran for Governor. He was killed in a car accident after leaving a Alabama football game in 1980.

1. My wife's Grandparents, who lived in Barbara County, was friends with 'Shorty'. He was also the family lawyer.

2. When he attended the University of Alabama, his roommate was another man that ran for the Governor of Alabama. Another lawyer from Barbara County, Alabama, George Corley Wallace.

So I'm standing on the back porch talking to my father and all of a sudden I hear crash, and I look
over at the window just in time to see a squirrel running through my living room. I start yelling for my
kid, yelling for him to open the front door, but the animal decided to take a left and into my room. My
window was open and he saw the light, so there we are, me and the crazy squirrel in my room
trapped because I'm screaming shut the door shut the door and he shut the door, so I'm in the room
on my crutches and a brace and here's the squirrel running amok, knocking everything over, he gets
to the window and it is on. He runs to the left corner of the window and I run over and grab the
corner of the right screen and start trying to get it out of the window he looks at me and sees me and
runs towards my hand so I pulled my hand away now he's on the right side and I'm trying to work the
screen on the left side this goes back-and-forth like ping-pong for like eight tries and finally I get to
that screen out of the window. I spin around and it's quiet and I don't see him and then all of a

wolfgaurd Do you remember a
situation of someone who tried to run
for office, didn't win, but tried to
run again later? I'm thinking like
for President or Senator/Rep.

I am in Nashville for the National NRA Convention. I hope everyone is doing great.

P.S.: I had a dream, over the weekend, that B.T.V.S. was coming back to TV. In my dream I was eating a steak when, I think a ABC Channel announced that, in their Spring line up, B.T.V.S. was returning. I knew none of the shown actors for the revival. I must add that I was much older, in the dream, and it well in the future. CC

I just happened to have the link to Part 1 of

Free to Choose

and I thought I might as well drop it here. A fast and dirty lesson (in 10 parts) on Economics, Capitalism, Free Enterprise, Communism (Marxism, Socialism, etc.) and what makes some countries prosperous and others seem like slavery. This is not taught in high school and much of it not even in college. Very few VOTERS in this country understand this. The first half-hour of each program is the lesson; the second-half is a discussion (which might be a tad dated.) Just make certain to watch the first half
