The Man From Uncle: And Why Nazis Are Always Worse

(0)
September 7, 2017

We’re working with the Russians. It doesn’t get any more Russian than the Red Peril here! It was more or less ignored in 2015 when it came out, didn’t exactly make a profit and (as will almost all enjoyable films) received a less than spectacular rating on Rotten Tomatoes (the web site where critics parrot… Read More ›

The Hitman’s Body Guard: Went for the humor stayed for the action…also some insights to help with modern politics…

It is exactly what it purports to be. Stupid, fun, hilarious action.  That and nothing more. The film follows the Executive Bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) in his goal to get world class hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) from London to the Hague to testify in the trial of Belarus dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary… Read More ›

The Solution to all Long-term Problems of Immigration

So the Trump team this week rolled out another idiotic plan, this time to lower the amount of immigration to the country.  Despite the fact that immigration itself is always a benefit and the lack there of is always a detriment, the Trump team as usual doesn’t deal with facts.  Since the sane argument would… Read More ›

Needed Reform of Law Enforcement

It is sadly not a shock that Trump called for police to assault suspects this week.  Due process, presumption of innocence, basic rights of the accused mean nothing to a fascist like him.  One can only hope when all the evidence of his numerous crimes is piled up, he will receive only the rights he… Read More ›

Trump’s Non-Defense of Western Values

  “Our citizens did not win freedom together, did not survive horrors together, did not face down evil together, only to lose our freedom to a lack of pride and confidence in our values.” Donald Trump on his one-way tour to Antenora in defense of values he doesn’t hold.     So the talking points… Read More ›

Benefits of the UBI Beyond the Obvious

So the process and obvious benefits of the universal basic income have been well detailed already. (I have pulled sources from both the left and right to show this is something that can appeal to the concerns of both sides). A single plan to eliminate the corruption of the IRS, the problems of taxation, and… Read More ›

The Need For Intellectual Property Rights and Reform of IP Law

So, in the face of all the problems we are facing (populist idiocy on both sides of the aisle bringing in a new wave of government intervention) there is the equally stupid reaction from the libertarian/anarchist side to just tear everything down.  On one side you have Trump and Sanders calling for universal health care,… Read More ›

When People Fail At Understanding Female Heroes

So this isn’t my own critique at how writers handle female superheroes, this is a critique of an article published on Louder with Crowder, written by Courtney Kirschoff titled “Dear Feminist Hollywood: Stop Trying to Make Female Action Heroes a Thing…”

The Zookeeper’s Wife: Good but left me wanting more

The Zookeeper’s Wife is an excellent story of the husband and wife who ran the Warsaw Zoo before the Nazi invasion in Poland and who turned their zoo into part of an underground railroad to get Jews out of the ghettos. Just from that description alone you know it is nearly impossible ruin such a… Read More ›

April Fool’s Day Post: A Modest Proposal

A Modest Proposal It is a melancholy object to those who walk through the great institution of this nation that is American education (public, private, home, charter, what will you) when they see nothing but low standards, inept overpaid teachers, failing students (who are sometimes spawning three, four or six children) in buildings that are… Read More ›
