Over Here

We HAVE lost the war "over there", because we're already fighting it here... amongst ourselves. A fight we cannot win.

Who needs Al-Qaeda?

Success in Iraq is now defined as "when the level of violence there, is as acceptable as it is here". With Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, John Gibson, Cavuto, Malkin & O'Reilly, Chris Matthews, Scarborough, Tucker Carlson, Brit Hume, and Ted Nugent (TED NUGENT!) setting us at each other's throats, the troops will be home quicker than you can say "shelter in place".

More violence. At last, a benchmark George W. Bush can look forward to.

When you can no longer lower the bar, you raise the floor?

Don't watch the news?

There's always Lockdown: Gangland, Lockdown: Predators Behind Bars, Lockdown: Inside Maximum Security, To catch A Predator, Cheaters, Coyote Ugly, Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search, Predator Raw: The Unseen Tapes, A Killer On Campus, Born In The Wrong Body, Seconds From Disaster, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Criminal Minds, Dukes Of Hazzard, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Moral Court, Diagnosis Murder, Jerry Springer, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Judge Judy, Deal Or No Deal, Identity, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, Wheel Of Fortune, Family Feud, Cold Case, Sex and The City, War Stories With Oliver North (Oliver North!), American Idol Rewind, Lock-Up, Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy, or a new series about a woman who is Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter.

And of course, COPS.

A clause in Dick Cheney's rider requires that FOX NEWS be on any TV, in any room he stays in while traveling.

Think watching TV at all is a waste of time? Perhaps. Unfortunately, that sounds like the same thinking that allowed a report titled "Bin Laden Determined To Attack Within United States" to go ignored just days before 9-11.

Ignored like this warning the night Rumsfeld resigned.

Rushing to celebrate their own peace dividend (LIFE TAKES VISA), those who innocently thought they won the November election should be watching the guilty who can't afford to lose, are still in power, and have one last window in which to save themselves by blaming a new enemy... Democrats.

The only Americans we can trust are Stewart, Colbert, and Olbermann (when he's serious).

The next attack on America will be the last, because anyone left alive will deny their previous ideals, allegiances, and hopes - like a disciple pretending he has no Master 3 times before the cock crows - and THAT was the plan all along.

On April 22, 2006, AIR FORCE ONE got tagged. Painted on the cowling of the left outboard engine were the words "STILL FREE". Tonight, as MSNBC steals the show again, the (R)eptilians will peck their way out of their shells under the outstretched right wing of AIR FARCE ONE. Who will the joke be on this time?

Only (R)on Paul will prove that he alone is "STILL FREE".

I may not be laughing, but I WILL BE WATCHING.

My Name is Michael Sterling, and I approved this page.

(R)on Who?

From Alex Jones:

Even the usually much vaunted Keith Olbermann and his MSNBC co-host Chris Matthews ignored Ron Paul's clear anti-war stance in claiming that none of the Republican candidates opposed the occupation of Iraq.

As if we needed a reminder, the aftermath of the GOP debate has taught us that the path to the Oval office is off-limits to any candidate who is not bought and paid for by special interests and the corporate media. Barely a handful of pre-approved identikit lackeys are selected and lavished with dominant media coverage while anyone who stands for real issues or offers a viable alternative is shunned and censored.

You must mean >F*CKER. Although, it's Chris Matthews who has f*cked everything up with his speed-rap questions that he starts to answer himself until he jumps to the next question... all before his guest gets a word in edgewise. As opposed to Coulter's adaptation of the same technique, Matthews is just rude and condescending, especially to his audience which apparently doesn't need to hear what anyone else thinks anymore. Of course, this technique may have been stumbled upon while waiting for satellite-dependent responses, but Matthews has the bit in his mouth as he runs straight for the cliff's edge.

Worse still, he has taken Rove's bait and already dispensed with the lame Candidates in BOTH parties nine months ahead of schedule. They are now so insignificant, that even Paula Zahn can make Richardson look like an unfunny Carlos Mencia.

America will tear itself apart before we get to the election, and THAT is a betrayal more heinous than any laid at Harry Reid's feet

In the "Possibility Of Hope" feature on the "Children Of Men" DVD, Alfonso Cuaron points out that individuals have become as powerful as Nation States, hence terrorism. Glenn Beck and others of his ilk may, in that sense, be the most dangerous terrorists in the world given their control over American airwaves.

Time to rent 'brazil' AGAIN...

The Summer of '77... The OTHER George's lecacy.

I was lucky to be working for Robert Abel; where many of those who went north to work on STAR WARS had worked before me. One night, a true character strolled into (not easily done) my office above the back door, and cautiously showed me the first STAR WARS T-Shirt, along with some polaroids of the Death Star trench model. After I pointed out Con Pedersen's obvious contribution to the "greebied" detail of the X-WING (which hadn't been seen since the models in 2001: A Space Odyssey), and identified the source of the Death Star as Asimov's Trantor, he relaxed and I found out his name was Adam Beckett, and that he was my new RUBBER CITY friend.

When STAR WARS opened, the Directors went to the first show while the ART PUNKS finished up their assigned tasks in time for the second. I'll never forget the glow on Taylor's face as he exited Grauman's. Genuinely happy to see us, all he said was:" See you back at work." We proudly followed his lead as soon as we found ourselves back on Hollywood Blvd. He knew already what was next, and he knew we'd be ready for it, no matter what IT was.

The STAR WARS dissections seem so second nature now, but realizing that much of the Myth (especially Mentor - could have sworn I saw Edlund talking to Abel during one of the ILM model shot meetings) was what we were all lucky to be living, is probably what life is all about.

The Rebellion is always a fantasy until it's almost too late, and Alliances are all too fragile, but The Empire is here now. How else can the reluctance to delve deeper into the similarities between the Sith and House Bush be explained?

But then, that's a job for the Summer of '07...

Thank you for your comments and participation.

Concerning the "speeches" and "Children Of Men". I'm working on a CD of my reading of the first 50 iParty posts, and recently rented the film. It's gratifying that Art can still make it's point here in the 21st Century - so close to the reality portrayed. Particulary liked the "Stork" joke. Just the sort of thing you probably hear at the G8, or wherever the Bilderbergers choose to stuff themselves.
