July 4th Weekend: Remember From Whence We Came and Why

7-6-14 12:03 PM EST: I like this opening segment from Huckabee this week. It's about the Fourth of July of course, and he reminds Americans where we came from and why. He touches on the things which brought about the intense desire to be self-ruled, to slough off tyranny, and how so many times in our 238 year history we, as a nation, have had to rise, fight, defend, and die for the ideals of America and her founders.

Costco Bans All Copies of D'Souza' s "America"

7-8-14 11:54 AM EST: Costco has ordered that all copies of D'Souza's book America be removed by July 15th. Perhaps a few million of their customers should remove themselves from this establishment for the unforeseeable future...like forever.

Smart business move huh? The concepts, and ideals embodied in this book, now a major movie, describe how it is that Costco was able to start a business in the first place. Would they had a Costco here so I could jitterbug on over there and tear up my membership card right in front of the manager's face.

D'Souza's Movie America is Doing Very Well at Box Office

7-6-14 11:23 AM EST: Dinesh D'Souza speaks to Megyn Kelly about his new movie, out now, which is really doing well. Reports I've seen of people watching it on the Fourth of July say that there were wild cheers during the showing and that people had tears streaming down their faces. That, along with the big, big start, by box office standards, even though it didn't open at nearly as many theatres as other Hollywood films, are positive signs.

This Is So Silly It's Hysterical: Hey, A Guy's Gotta Laugh!

7-7-14 2:50 PM EST: It was extremely fortunate for this businessman that he had an exquisitely talented lady to accompany him on this very important meeting, where he needed either seven different translators, or one who spoke seven different languages.

Luckily for him, this lady was available who does speak seven different languages...fluently. I wonder how the meeting eventually turned out :-)

Israeli and Palestinian Contrast: See The Huge Difference?

7-6-14 10:08 AM EST: Three Israeli teenage boys, including one American, are kidnapped and murdered in the West Bank and Palestinians celebrate. Rabid seventh century barbarians. Evil with a big E.

One Palestinian teen boy gets kidnapped and murdered, Israel tracks down the possible culprits and now has them in custody awaiting prosecution. The difference is of the night and day variety. Daylight versus intense darkness. Justice versus neverending hatred, continuous murder, suicide bombers, indiscriminantly fired rockets into civilian populations by the thousands, and jihad, from dusk till dawn, every freaking day.

Saturday Night Americana: With an Open Thread

7-5-14 7:10 PM EST: People the world over learned a lot about American culture through our movies. They learned how we sang, danced, and what we thought was beautiful, handsome, and funny. Musicals were huge during the 30's, 40's, 50's, and even some 60's. The actors, actresses and songs still permeate us who are older. We who loved them watch them still, and our kids now in their twenties watched them right along with us and love them too...at least ours do.
