Latest Flicks / The Wolf of Wall Street
« on: December 25, 2013, 01:45:39 pm »
This is not the movie of the year
The fat guy was the best actor but
Towards the end even that falls apart
The audience's average age a bit older than I
And the message to the public, et al, came at the end
Not to spoil it for anyone but the commercial was the story
The credits had a value in that it turned a key point into a cute rap

Enjoy....

Vox Populi / Who, What, Where Can Restore FDR's Civilization
« on: December 22, 2013, 05:33:17 am »

"Civilization"

Is my personal favorite

But if you ask 7 different Democrats

You are likely to get 17 different dissertations

Of course if you ask 70 Republicans

They'll point to the Ghetto

And merely say

"Tax Cut"

And though Reagan

Is dead, buried and gone

His leadership still inspires many

To go out and actually vote

As a Democrat majority

All but find reasons

Why they won't.

Franklin Roosevelt

Inspired such reasons

For 40 years after he died

Democrats were proud to say

That they were in fact Democrats:

PUBLIC USA Infrastructure

PUBLIC Transportation

PUBLIC Education

PUBLIC Health

Even Big Bird

On PUBLIC

Access Television

Are all now bad words

As the Two Week Vacation

Of a once prosperous Middle Class

Has all but totally evaporated

While Europe is now home

To America's Happy Days

And we are now home

To the GOP's Tax Cut

Who, What, Where

Can restore FDR's

"Civilization"

Vox Populi / Between Me & You: I'm Tired of Obama
« on: December 19, 2013, 03:16:59 am »
Time Magazine pictured him as Franklin Delano Roosevelt

But he is little more than a competent Richard Nixon

Now that the dead Frank Wills has been nullified

By George Bush's Terrorized legality of the NSA

Funny how those Time Magazine Democrats

And Dick Cheney's Hillbilly Republican Logic

So quickly flipped sides on that subject

Like mice following the Piped Piper

Along the All Gorey path we call

The Information Super Hi-way

We Hi-Information voters


Late at night on July 27, 2004 I stood transfixed as a skinny guy with a funny name

Finally articulated for me just why I had rejected the veiled racism of DixieCrats

Who now called themselves Ditto Head Moral Majority Christian Republicans

Complete with their John Wayne Movie logic of Every Man For Himself

Some skinny guy with a funny name and a well practiced speech

Who would finally speak for the idiot non-Socialist Democrats

To the obvious fact that the Red, once Confederate, States

Feared five simple words: The United States of America

Five words that lifted him from "Not Black Enough"

All the way to non-Black Sweden for Nobel glory

But even in that peaceful setting he couldn't

Repeat the practiced glory of July 27, 2004

Or the mass media glory of July 2, 1964

In fact he and our nation are falling

Far short of our glorious past

In fact since July 27, 2004

Not even a single word

For our United State


ObamaCare

Once a brilliant curse

Created by FoxNews Republicans

Is now a curse of his own glitched makings

Makings that re-invented computerized elections

But could not deliver a computerized doctor, nurse or prescription

That was pioneered in England and Canada without a computer in sight

ObamaCare that overlooked that un-employed people have no credit needed for a job

And the stupid New England Democrats who almost didnít elect a real Democrat: Elizabeth Warren

Yeah, I voted for him above the wisdom that gave us Sarah Palin and the Trickled Downed Mitt

But all I got was a T-Shirt and a dead Osama Bin Laden created by a dead Ronald Reagan

Like a merry go round I am chasing ghosts as Time Magazine chases an audience

No one comes close to the Man of the Century: Franklin Delano Roosevelt

No one comes close to the podium darkened for Henry Wallace

Leaving the world to a radioactive Japan born of Hiroshima

We are distracted by the likes of GOP Ditto Heads

And Celebrity spokesmen speaking for Whales

And the rights of Chimpanzee animals

While only a dead Nelson Mandela

Understood Humanityís Flower

Completely and as a Whole

While Obama just smiles

For a selfie and history

Between me & you

Iím tired of Obama

Acting / Farewell Peter O'Toole
« on: December 16, 2013, 02:09:35 pm »

Not that I was a massive fan
But the brother could act
And one of these days
I'll watch Lawrence
In one full sitting
So it's farewell
Old Chap

« on: December 14, 2013, 10:47:19 am »
Not quite sure what category to put this in
But for sure it deserves honorable mention
2002, 2011 (I remembered the words on that one)
And this year looks pretty good too
In fact every year is good at TCM
Though I just saw the one for 2013....BRILLIANT!!!
God I hope it doesn't change should I outlive Ted Turner

Thank you Ted.....

In The News / The Incredible Mega Ball Odds
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:33:25 pm »

550 Million Bucks
This Sh!t is off the hook
Third place prize is chump change
Chump change that I need desperately
To help pacify me when some old lady in Oklahoma
Wins on a two dollar bet because someone let her jump in line

In The News / Fox News (SUCCESSFULLY) Plays Us For Chumps
« on: December 08, 2013, 01:55:31 am »
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2013/12/06/fox-news-stonewalls-the-new-york-times/?tid=hpModule_ea22e378-b26e-11e2-bbf2-a6f9e9d79e19

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2013/10/23/book-fox-news-planted-false-information-to-discredit-reporter-stifle-bad-news/

On Friday the WaPo published a story revealing the inner-workings of FoxNews.

In particular how they literally lied to a major newspaper reporter

Only to (SUCCESSFULLY) turn and say the MSM hates Fox

There is a simplicity to FoxNews that I and most

Cannot quite get our hands around

Like the all but discredited "Knockout Game"

There is a simplicity that Roger Ailes keeps close to his chest

There is a "Gordian Knot" that confounds not only the MSM but also American decency

How much longer before we realize the king has no clothes and America can return to the glory of Franklin Roosevelt

I JUST heard this JUST now about The Fair Housing Act of 1968
If I had known this about Romney (His father George)
I may have gone easy on Him

Actually, I almost feel sorry for him
