Watch The Creepy Trailer For THE WITCH

September 3, 2015

If you read this blog, you know I’m a fan of horror films. This new movie The Witch blew away the Sundance Film Festival and is generating a lot of buzz among horror fans.

The basic storyline: In Massachusetts, years before the Salem Witch Trials, a family is exiled because the father is too pious for the Puritans. At their new homestead near a dark forest, their infant son goes missing, the eldest daughter is scapegoated and all Hell breaks loose.

The details of the story have been well guarded but I’ll tell you this: Unlike the Blair Witch Project, this movie has an actual witch. You can see her briefly at the end of the trailer.

According to the IMDB message boards, the ending of the movie is mind blowing.

I’ve watched the trailer like 30 times. It’s that good.

Hey, I Remember This Place…

August 31, 2015

Hello there.

I just took a week off from blogging here. It’s the longest I’ve gone without blogging here in years.

As you may know, I’m doing a bit more blogging these days and August was a busy month.

I did some filling in at Legal Insurrection and College Insurrection, plus I’ve been adding more daily posts to Progressives Today.

As a result, my schedule has been pretty full.

Even so, I still plan to add new content here when I can, even if it’s just a post or two a day.

As always, thanks for reading and please visit the other sites I write for:

Three Things Will Happen Quickly if Biden and Warren Decide to Run Together

August 22, 2015

It was reported today that Joe Biden had a meeting with Elizabeth Warren fueling speculation of a Biden/Warren ticket in 2016. It’s worth noting that Monica Crowley predicted this last week.

If this actually happens, three things will immediately become apparent.

1. Hillary Clinton is finished.
Progressive activists who make up the base of the Democratic Party will go nuts for this ticket. Hillary Clinton, who is already damaged goods, will lose tons of support.

2. Bernie who?
Bernie Sanders has been nothing more than a stand-in for Elizabeth Warren. If she’s in the running, 99 percent of the people who are flocking to Bernie Sanders rallies will drop him instantly and throw their support behind Warren. The Bernie Sanders campaign will become a speed bump in the road to 2016 overnight.

3. The media will have a collective orgasm.
If Biden and Warren run together, the media will revert to the cult-like coverage they gave to Obama in 2008. Biden’s gaffes will become endearing and folksy. Any mention of Warren’s lies about being a Native American will be declared racist and sexist.

You should read Professor Jacobson’s take on this at Legal Insurrection.

The Week in Review at College Insurrection

August 22, 2015

It was Sensitive Snowflakes Week at College Insurrection.

Cross posted at Legal Insurrection…

Imagine if we based free expression on logic instead of people’s feelings.

Maybe people wouldn’t freak out over little things.

Really little things.

Schools are finding creative ways to deal with the higher ed bubble.

Very creative.

Students are finding ways to cut costs too.

Dennis Prager is asking the important questions.

Compare and contrast.

A mystery revealed.

Want to feel old?

Presidential politics on campus.

Some students just don’t test well.

Putting the high in higher education.

#BlackLivesMatter Says White Guy

August 19, 2015

Shaun King of the Daily Kos and #BlackLivesMatter is carrying on the proud Democrat tradition of misrepresenting one’s race for power and political gain.

Why not? Elizabeth Warren and Rachel Dolezal did it.

Full story here.

The Stunning Implosion of Hillary Clinton

August 18, 2015

How bad has Hillary’s email scandal become? This bad.

Hillary thinks she’s such an inevitability for the Democratic nomination that she’s not even prepared for basic questions on the subject of her emails now that the media is finally taking real notice.

Ace has found himself beyond words over this.

Professor Jacobson of Legal Insurrection calls it “Bad. Really bad.”

I’m inclined to agree with Jazz Shaw…

Bernie Sanders Wants Money Out Of Politics Except When He Doesn’t

August 18, 2015

Question: When is Bernie Sanders OK with money in politics?

Answer: When it’s going to his family members.

Hillary Thinks Her Email Scandal is a Joke

August 16, 2015

Earth to Democrats: Your presumed nominee for 2016 is being investigated by the FBI.

Is this really an appropriate subject for jokes?

It’s almost like…

Music Break – Alice in Chains

Of all the bands that emerged from the 1990’s Grunge scene, none kept one foot in the roots of heavy metal as well as Alice in Chains. Here are some of their classic songs.

This Commercial For Raisin Bran Makes Me Want to Break Things

August 16, 2015

If you own a TV and sometimes watch it, you’ve seen this annoying commercial. A father and daughter who apparently share a competitive golf hobby trade barbs over breakfast.

I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate this commercial. I hate the actors, the premise, the dialogue and the watered down version of KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Boogie Shoes” playing in the background.

I’ve heard that if a song is stuck in your head, you should sing it out loud.

Here’s the original tune…
