Hello, 911, Please Hold...indefinitely!

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 2, 2008

You’ve probably seen the newly posted signs along the freeways: “Report Drunk Drivers Call 911”. Well, as I was driving home today on one of the many Los Angeles County Freeways, I noticed someone driving in a manner that suggested he was partaking of a beverage that should not be consumed while careening down the highway at 70+ miles per hour – and yes, driver, if you’re reading this, I did take note of the license plate number of your gray Toyota Celica.

I have my obligatory headset as required by California’s stupid new hands-free phone law and I dialed 911 to report this driver.... (more)

Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Second Amendment

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 27, 2008

Today, in a 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court handed down an historical ruling concerning the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Thirty two years ago the city of Washington, D.C. enacted a ban on the possession of hand guns within the city limits of the nation's capital. The final word came down within the city limits of that city in at the Supreme Court -- the city's ban on hand gun ownership is a violation of the Constitution.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Counter-culture Icon George Carlin Dies

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 23, 2008

With those words, taken from his 1990 album Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics comedian and actor George Carlin took a stab at some of the moronic words used in our everyday language. Sadly, the entertainment world is a little less funny this morning as George Carlin died in Santa Monica on Sunday of heart failure. He was 71.

Over the years, Carlin was known for his racy humor and biting commentary on the world as he saw it. Many times he joked about his Irish-Catholic upbringing and corralled Christianity in with Islam and other religions claiming, “they all took... (more)

Another Satisfied Customer

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 19, 2008

It took long enough and a trip to another website where people meet and discuss the topics of the day but I have finally pushed a liberal to reveal her true nature. When a liberal finds him or herself staring straight into the unvarnished and irrefutable truth, the result is a response much like the following which will be laden with profanity and name-calling. This person took it upon herself to “cop a ‘tude” and proceed to tell me all about myself. Of course, what posts such as the following reveal is that this is a person who is seriously lacking in any kind of education or other social... (more)

Ding Dong The Witch Is Gone!

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 4, 2008

Not since the Kansas Jayhawks won the NCAA championship in 1988 have I had the wherewithal to actually stand up and do the cabbage patch. In 1988, every time the Oklahoma Sooners won a basketball game, the players would stand up on the sidelines of the court and start doing the cabbage patch. It would radiate up through the seats of the arena and spill out onto the campus. When the Jayhawks won the championship 83-79 at Allen Field House East (Kansas City calls it Kemper Arena) there wasn’t a fan on the campus of KU who wasn’t doing the cabbage patch as an “in your face” act of defiance.

Where's The Outrage?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 3, 2008

Michael Pfleger stands at the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago screaming about how America is a sin against God, how America needs to pay for its “rape of people of color”, how Hillary is screaming and crying about how she is entitled to be president because she is white and how America is addicted to racism. To hear this guy he sounds like a disenfranchised black preacher.

But he’s white. AND he’s a Catholic priest who was visiting the church.

Jeremiah Wright stands at the pulpit and screams, “no no no , not God bless America, God Damn America. It’s in the... (more)


Fire Destroys Universal Studios Back Lot

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 2, 2008

At 4:30 this morning fire broke out on the Universal Studios back lot, an area famous for being the location for many movies and television shows. The fire burned for almost 12 hours before being extinguished by Los Angeles fire fighters. Fire department officials did not allow the famous Universal Studios theme park and adjacent Universal City Walk to open for business today. Patrons waited patiently outside the gates of the park waiting for word on when they could enter. As time passed, patrons were given water to combat the heat of the day. Finally at 2:00, park officials declared... (more)

The Second Civil War

By D. E. Carson, published on May 29, 2008

America went 85 years before it began fighting within itself. Then for four years American mutilated each other through the use of varying types of weapons – modern to that day but rather antiquish by today’s weapon standards. That fighting officially ended 143 years ago. But the fire’s on and the pot is boiling. The day is coming when the lid is going to blow and when it does, there will be a revolution within America that will make everyone’s head spin. Little releases of pressure have been going off for some time but the big one is coming and I promise you it will not be pretty.

The 80s Are Back!

By D. E. Carson, published on May 29, 2008

Okay, I don’t usually do this, but last weekend I wrote a review of the new Indiana Jones movie and got the following response from Morgana:

The 80's are back: Gasoline is up and Japanese cars are in, I think the Celtics and Lakers are up from what the guys tell me, and Indy has another adventure.

Which then prompted me to write:

The 80s are back? Cool! Now, where's the hot babes in spandex with leg warmers and really BIG hair??? Time to pull out my Flock of Seagulls, Whitesnake, Def Lepperd, Van Halen and Rick Springfield records and party like it's 1999! All we need... (more)

Latest Indiana Jones Is Worth The Time

By D. E. Carson, published on May 26, 2008

Okay, so it opened on Thursday and most of America has already seen it, right? Well, if you haven’t and you like Indiana Jones, you’ll like this one. It isn’t as good as The Last Crusade or Raiders of the Lost Ark, but Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does not disappoint. Sure, if you’ve seen enough of the teasers, you can put parts of the plot together and the ending is rather predictable, but at exactly two hours of running time, it’s a good escape. I did spot one anachronism in the movie: in the very last scene of the movie, there is an American flag hanging the corner... (more)
