Band of Brothers

In my humble opinion, Band of Brother’s is one of the most wonderfully made World War 2 film/series out there. If you have not yet had the opportunity to view this masterpiece, be sure to check it out the next time you get a chance. Each episode starts out with several short interviews from the actual men of Easy Company that survived WW2. The series itself is well written (based on the book) and well acted. Here is the opening credits and interviews:

It is because of these men that we are able to live here today in freedom.

A Short Thought On American Greatness

Now, I wouldn’t say that Giuliani would be my first or favorite pick for the GOP nominee – but I will say – this is the type of talk we need about America.

Note that this ad wasn’t even about what he did, but about what some of our fine fellow countrymen did. This is one major point that I thing we hear little about when politics are discussed. I firmly believe in the greatness of the American experiment. Though there are certainly ugly things about our culture that disgust me – I have to step back from time to time and remember that there is still greatness in the heart of this nation. It is my hope that more and more American men and women will remember those that came before us and refuse to let that greatness fade.

The Snowman

This is an excellent piece of animation and music that harkens back to my childhood. The best part – If you watch it a couple times – then you can just listen. Sorry about the low quality video.

Merry Christmas!

Gore Strikes Back – Plus: Am I Prophetic?

Ok, I really hate to keep clanging this gong – but did I not say exactly this yesterday (this was part of my comment on the link to the left (Under Crap of Interest) about the 400 scientists):

Oh – but because the U.S. Senate wrote the report it can’t be trusted because they all like to drown babies in crude oil for profit….

Remember – you heard it first right here on What The Crap.

Well, I’m finally admitting it: I’m a prognosticator…because, just like clockwork, here’s a statement from Gore’s spokesperson today:

After a quick review of the report, Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider said 25 or 30 of the scientists may have received funding from Exxon Mobil Corp.” (emphasis mine)

You see folks – this is the sorry state of the environmental movement today. It makes me sad because I really do care about our environment. But the fact is that the “movement” itself has been completely hijacked by extremists and radicals.

Note Gore’s tactic – don’t debate the scientists, just attempt to discredit them by claiming they received money (note – only 25-30 of 400 may have) from that evil evil company Exxon-Mobil. Isn’t anyone else bothered by this? Even if a handful of these scientists did receive money from Exxon-Mobil (assumed to be evil and anti-environment) suddenly that means they must have made up the data and we shouldn’t even consider their arguments? Hello? This is a common tactic when something doesn’t fit the environmental agenda – Attempt to discredit anyone who disagrees.

I’m sorry, but ladies and gentleman, Al Gore is a coward for this, and I do not use the term lightly. If he truly believes that he has the science correct – he wouldn’t need to discredit opposing viewpoints. All he would need to do is counter their arguments with his own. You can clearly see – he doesn’t even have to stones to do that. Rather – he chooses to imply that anyone with a different viewpoint must be lying and/or paid off by the assumed evil “Big Oil”. What kind of a weakling starts a movement that has huge implications on the world, then refuses to debate his own conclusions? Plus, do you hear the opposition rushing out to slander Gore’s scientists? No. All the people in opposition want to do is debate the science. That’s it. Apparently Al Gore’s is just too pathetic to even let someone question his theory.

I just find this whole thing remarkable. I’m sorry to keep bringing it up – but I just can’t stand it. I believe that there are reasonable steps America could take to perhaps clean up aspects of our environment. However, making up outrageous doomsday scenarios based on politically charged science – then smearing and squelching anyone who dares show any objection is absolute cowardice. In my opinion, Al Gore is a disgrace to science as well as anyone who actually cares about free thinking or coming up with practical environmental solutions in America.

The Nobel comity should be ashamed for endorsing such a one sided wimpy whiny cry-baby – who’s only rebuttal to opposing questions is throwing blame-game slanderous tantrums. What little respect I may have had for Al Gore’s ideas has been completely destroyed by his own low-life childish actions. If he wants me to take his theory of man caused global warming seriously – he is going to have to re-earn my respect. Until then, Al Gore will remain What The Crap’s Honorary Eviro-Douche-bag of the Year.

Wopper of The Universe

Read my article from yesterday.

But I thought “the science was closed” ?!?

U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007

Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called “consensus” on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.

Meanwhile, Al Gore:

(November 5, 2007): “There are still people who believe that the Earth is flat.” (LINK) Gore also compared global warming skeptics to people who ‘believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona’ (June 20, 2006 – LINK)

Science Cannot Be Closed

Merry Christmas from John Edwards

…except hold the “Merry” and um, be sure not to mention or allude to “Christmas.”

Wait…wasn’t that just an old advertisement for his law firm?

“Any problem you have will be rectified immediately by the government if you elect me. And even if that turns out to be totally unrealistic, unfeasible, and unfordable – At least I can help myself you make up an excuse to get bloody rich suing someones *** off. I’m John Edwards and I approve this message.”

The man can’t even lay off his pathetic negative platitudes long enough to run a Christmas ad. What a tool.

Update: SHOCKED AT HONESTY: I seriously have no words for the following…

Bryan at hotair put it best:

“My jaw dropped when I watched this one the first time. Hillary’s Christmas ad says nothing at all about Christmas. The gifts make the connection, of course, but check out what the gifts are: universal health care, bring the troops home, etc. All of the gifts are funded in one way or another with your money. And she’s portraying herself as a thoughtful gift-giver by taking your money and giving it back to you in the form of expensive government programs, some or all of which you might not actually want or need. If that doesn’t typify liberal thinking, I don’t know what does.”

Analyzing Oprahbamaramma

I’ve included a couple audio clips of Prager talking about Oprah’s opening speech for Barack Obama. Now, I have a heck of a lot more respect for Oprah, than say–the vacuous blow-holes of The View. With that in mind, her thoughts here on politics are quite absurd. Plus, the fact that she has such a great influence in today’s culture, I felt that it would be important for other people to hear and understand this:

Dumpster Divers Against Bush

Say hello to Freeganism…

There it is again: “Raising Awareness.” Here’s a quote from the news story. Be sure to note how “progressive” and intellectually enlightened they come across and how stupid and brainwashed we all are for daring to support “the System”:

“I’d say what’s gross and disgusting is the fact that this food is being thrown out in the first place,” said Nelson. “What’s really disgusting is the system that allows this waste to happen.”

The “system” Nelson referred to is a capitalist economy. But she didn’t stop there.

“I just started looking at the state of the U.S. and the state of the world, and thinking, ‘what the hell am I doing here? What am I doing? Global warming is happening, there’s war in Iraq, Bush is out of control, and here I am, working at a corporation to help a company sell more stuff,’” Nelson said to ABC News in a supplemental online story.


Oh wait, who’s brainwashed here? Seriously, what the crap!
