Stupid movies at Walmart and smoking

Haven't touched this blog for awhile. It's pretty stale. Whatever, no one reads it anyhow. I was at Walmart and made a couple observations today:

 1) Walmart, why not have your employees take their smoke break BEHIND the stores, not right in front of the store? The local store parking lot already smells like a giant ashtray/public mens room, so why make it worse by having a half dozen of your employees out puffing on their cancer sticks 20 ft. from the door to the store?

 2) The films in your $5 bin aren't even worth $5. You should actually PAY the customers to take them, or perhaps, offer incentives to take these pieces of garbage, like 10% off if you take any film with Nicholas Cage.

 In any case, some thoughts on this cheap bin loser:

You see, it must be funny, because the woman is smart (the heart by her head shows that she's clever, because she's the woman!) but the man is stupid and animalistic, because the heart is at his groin, and men are all little more than dogs without brains.

Good thing the woman is smart and the man is stupid, because without that trite formula it wouldn't be a $5 cheap bin turd from Hollywood.

I can't stand hollywood, and I'm frustrated that I have to buy things from Walmart.  I hate supporting them when they sell stupid films like this and all of their employees just blow cancer smoke in the parking lot.  Maybe their employees are just disgusted by the stupid films they are required to sell, and it drives them to smoke?  "The Ugly Truth"?  The ugly truth is that Walmart sells a lot of garbage, and if there was a decent alternative, I'd give my money to someone else instead of this monopolitic, smoky beast.

How Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade should have ended

I thought the same thing about the dual-relationship thing when I saw this, and found it disgusting too. Spielberg apparently thought it was funny, but I thought that this (and many other things about the film) worked to ruin it. Who thinks that a promiscuous character, and a father/son relationship with the same woman, would be even remotely funny? It's disgusting, and this was to me just the beginning of the Spielberg downward spiral. Tossing the grail to the Nazis made a lot of sense too.

America’s Coming Demographic Disaster — A Conversation with Jonathan V. Last

Interesting discussion, although the irony is that Mohler, with 2-kids, is himself below replacement rate. I didn't catch any of that mentioned in the podcast. Good thing that "other" evangelicals take care of the pesky business of fulfilling the creation mandate...

Inane Marxist Mainstream Bull

This is so foul. I've seen it making the run around with Facebook, and this just blows me away how brutally forward this communist is in her agenda, and that MS-NBC backs garbage like this. If this hyphenated-last name woman would like to give her children to the State, that's her own perverse decision, but not mine.

Of course, I wonder how many people disagree with her message and yet have no qualms with yielding their children to the State school system....

More thoughts on the gay issue that I so tired of hearing about...

Just left this comment at a blog I frequent,  Doubt it will see light of day, though;

Two thoughts: why does this topic seem to dominate the constant theme of folks like Al Mohler, as if there's nothing else in the world to talk about for evangelical Christians?  Is there really nothing else in the Bible to occupy our time and thought?

But here's another thought:  when we talk about homosexuality as being "subject to idolatry just as is money or possessions. With all of the emphasis we have today on sex it most certainly has become an idol to many..." are we really that much different in evangelical Christianity with the the ready acceptance that you can choose your family size and then just surgically sterilize yourself once you have 2-4 kids (the acceptable norm?)  This is just as much a sex issue, and one that should be talked about, not so taboo.  Like homosexuality, is the vasectomy-mindset really all that different?  Isn't this just redirecting the idolatry in a different direction? ("two kids was enough, and I've got other idols of self to serve, so off I go to the urologist...")  While homosexuality is constantly thrown about in discussions, no one ever seems to address the idolatry of deliberately limiting the blessing of family size in order to serve other idols of self.  Yet is Christians are honest with the Scriptures, the repeated message through the patriarchs and the OT is the blessing of children.  So if homosexuality is such a capital sin, why isn't deliberate childlessness/small families in evangelical families treated the same way?

We get grace from the sacraments?

I will never understand Roman Catholicism. Centuries of corruption, torture and persecution, subdued through the Reformation and centuries of people reading the Bible and refuting catholic errors, then finally relegated to fringe cult (like Mormonism) but yet it still lingers on. I've yet to hear Trent refuted, so apparently genuine faith and repentance are still not enough... I'm still accursed by Rome.

 Yet I've still yet to hear where in Scriptures the distorted teaching of Rome comes from, such as praying to Saints, worshiping Mary, and killing those who disagree with you (the later being the most heinous of catholic Scriptural perversions. Wonder where and how they get the idea of using the sword to kill others from Jesus and the new covenant?) In any case, this ad has me puzzled. How does one get grace from the sacraments, exactly? And where exactly in Scripture doe we even find the word "Sacrament" anyhow?
Or is it, much like infant baptism, a non-Scriptural distortion made up by bad theologians over time?

 In any case, the RCC misses the point: you don't go "home" to Rome, but rather, you make room for the Holy Spirit to have a home in your heart, through regeneration through Christ. I pray for Rome, that the wicked distortions they propagate will clear like a black fog, giving way to the true light of the gospel...

"Who Killed the Dixie Chicks?" Duh....

Saw this at the grocery store checkout the other day, and it elicited an audible "duh".

"Who Killed the Dixie Chicks?" asks Texas Monthly.  Well, duh, it's the squirrelly little one in the top of the picture with the big mouth, who decided that instead of just singing and being an entertainer, she'd instead vomit out some political diatribe against then-president George W.  Listen, I'm not going to defend Bush or Cheney or the idiotic, endless wars offshore, but I will say this, again:

If you're a singer, then sing!
If you're an actor, then act!
Leave the politics to irritating TV news personalities.

...and shut your mouth about your nonsensical and irrelevant political views, because you're dealing with a subject matter that is bound to alienate a large demographic of your audience.  I bet the other members of the Dixie Chicks really appreciated the little squirrelly one spouting off on George W.  It's like, "hey, thanks, you just ruined OUR careers as well!"

Texas Monthly, you just wasted a lot of dead trees to spread the obvious.

Miami Vice Shark Jumping

Been watching some of Miami Vice on NetFlix, and it floors me how cheesy so many of these episodes are (and no one bleeds when shot, either.)  I can't figure out if the show jumped the shark when Larry Zito died, or when this dreadful episode happened...

Man, that looks like Photoshopping that I would do...

I'm so sick of hearing about gay marriage...

Bah, I'm sick to death of the gay marriage issue in the headlines.  Just... give this topic a rest already, AP.  Is there nothing else to talk about?

I've ranted about this issue before, but here we go again - let me get this out of my system...

- Let the government define marriage however it wants.  I don't care, because I don't recognize the State's authority on my marriage in the first place.  One of these days, I will contact the state of my marriage and have them break the CIVIL contract of it, simply because I hate the fact I need to go grovelling to the State to get it's permission to marry in the first place!  MARRIAGE IS ECCLESIASTICAL, as far as I'm concerned (and as far as history is concerned.)  If the State wants to define marriage as a man and a head of celery, so what.  The State has already defined enough things stupidly (like our international policy, involvement in the UN, drone strikes against American citizens, etc, etc) that this doesn't make any real difference to me.  Give it 10 years, and Mormons will be petitioning to have polygamy legalized.  So what.

- The men who are most vocal about homosexuality are, themselves, men with tiny nuclear families of 2-4 children, so the logical conclusion is that they've willingly had their bodies surgically mutilated so that they can no longer have children.  So in other words, they too are practicing a distorted form of sexuality (much like a homosexual) in which their practice cannot yield children as the Bible commands (Gen. 1:28, the most ignored/warped/mutilated/misinterpreted verse in the entire Bible).  God commanded Adam, Noah, Jacob, etc to be fruitful and multiply, but that doesn't matter: what he really meant was, have 2 kids, put them in a private school, mutilate your genitals and spend all your time complaining about homos.  It's just as ridiculous as a 1-2 child family saying that they are "pro-life."  Yeah right....

The state has done far more stupid things than just approving gay marriage, and I don't care about all of the hoopla over this one issue.  The State is corrupt, bloated and disgusting, so who cares...

Concussion Research Can’t Be Ignored... by Christians!

I'm developing a new theory, along the lines of other theories of mine such as 'vasectomies kill men', and the theory is this:  Christians should not in ANY WAY be involved with the "sport" of football (with only the exception of being involved with the medical service to aid players brutalized, mangled and crippled in agonizing pain from the game.)

Concussion Research Can’t Be Ignored

(I saved this as a draft, too.  Lost interest, and frankly, probably won't ever finish this...)

James Holmes’ Defense Witnesses in Colorado Shooting to Testify on ‘Mental State’

James Holmes’ Defense Witnesses in Colorado Shooting to Testify on ‘Mental State’: ABC’s Clayton Sandell and Carol McKinley report: A judge ruled Thursday that public defenders for accused Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes can call two unidentified witnesses at next week’s preliminary hearing to testify about the defendant’s “mental state.” Arapahoe County, Colo. prosecutors had...

Ben Gardner's Boat

Jaws soundtrack stands out at one of the most terrifying soundtracks ever, particular the sequence from Ben Gardner's boat, which is amazing in that the shark isn't even in that sequence (just a freakish rubbery head...)

11:00 + the creepiness begins as they find the abandoned boat...
12:24... descent
13+ Shark theme. No shark, but plenty freaky. Who goes diving into the ocean, at night, when there's a great white out there somewhere...?

"Enchanted", a stupid, irrelevant Disney feminist apology for the classic "Snow White"

Squinty has written a few too many posts lately, so need to get up to speed here.

I've been thinking lately of the excruciatingly-bad Disney film "Enchanted" lately, which can be thought of as less of a movie to waste time watching with the kids, but rather as a pathetic and humiliating insult to the tradition of the classic Disney Snow White film, which to me remains to this day the finest, incomparably animated film ever.  Of course this film is offensive, and has rabid feminists and others up in arms.  Snow White is a princess who wants nothing more than to marry a prince.  I love it!  No complex, frustrating, impossibly-intelligent, unlikable, proto-feminist, indestructible Reese Witherspoon-types, but rather just a princess who wants nothing more than to wed a prince.  Brilliant.  Perfect.  

With Enchanted, it's like the screen-writer was an angry young woman, trained in the Sith arts of rabid feminism in college, with a fresh social studies BA, who sat down and typed out how the classic Snow White "should" have actually ended, with the princess coming to New York and realizing she doesn't need a prince to be happy, but rather, she needs to be single and successful running her own business.  This was appalling writing and perhaps the stupidest distortion of a classic movie theme I've ever had the misfortune of watching.  Absolutely awful.

I will give Disney credit, though.  They have never stupidly attempted to make a "Snow White 2" (that I know of) and they have left the original alone, as the one film that cannot be ruined with stupid and shallow remakes involving SW trained as a warrior with a huntsman while she has a fling with the film director, or something like that.  

But if Disney did ever decide to make a "Snow White 2", rest assured it would be stupid, and that it would rot in the Disney vault along with "Enchanted."

The original Snow White is a marvel:  wonderful story, staggeringly-good animation (without any lazy Disney computer-animated shortcuts) and a charming soundtrack of both orchestral and vocal numbers.  It's unquestionably a classic, and you can tell by the duration of this film even today: they continue to make rides at the Disney theme park based on this film (haven't seen any films made based on "Enchanted".... maybe they could make Mr. Toad's Commode Ride", in which you ride through a sewage pipe lined with discarded copies of Enchanted...?)

Ordain a Lady?

Found this here at the Museum of Idolatry. No wonder the Youtube video closed the comments. I could only get a few seconds into this before turning it off in disgust.


"Don't listen to Saint Paul?" Wouldn't that eliminate almost the entirety of the New Testament?

What sort of man would lead his family spiritually by submitting to the teaching authority of a woman?  What sort of message is he sending his children?  "Oh hey, I'm just a big wuss spiritually.  Let's let a woman lead us, like Israel did during the height of their apostasy with Deborah in the book of Judges..."

I could go on about how disgusting this is, but I think that the Museum of Idolatry rightly cited these verses that sum it up best.

 “Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.” (1 Timothy 2:11–14) 

 “As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.” (1 Corinthians 14:33–35) 

“Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.” (1 Timothy 3:2–7)

Fox News and Flu outbreak: Why are so many not getting vaccinated?

Fox News seems to struggle to maintain the line between news reporting and propaganda, and this article is no exception:

Flu outbreak: Why are so many not getting vaccinated?

Or, "Why are so many people so stupid to not trust in the power of drugs?"  What caught my attention right away is that nowhere in the article is "mercury" mentioned at all (of course, I've heard the arguments that it's no different than eating a can of tuna, but I STOPPED eating tuna because of the mercury!)

I also found this peculiar word repetition in the article.  Do they even use editors?

However, just because a person does get the flu vaccine doesn’t mean he or she won’t still get sick.  However, many people can mistake flu-like symptoms for the flu virus.  Esper noted there are many different viruses capable of causing disease, so people shouldn’t necessarily assume that if they are sneezing and coughing, they caught the flu virus.

I didn't do the greatest in English class, but don't you generally use "however" following a previous statement that you want to respond to with the contrary?  So how could you however a however?  Wouldn't that be arguing both sides of an argument?  Goofy.

I've debated getting the shot, but only because I'm curious if I had an adverse reaction if I could get some money filing a vaccine damage complaint.  But the fact is, I'll take my chances.  If people want to soup up their bodies, more power to 'em.  Not me.

More thoughts on gun control nonsense

Expanding on some comments I left on the Houston Chomical, namely on a story about VP Biden meeting with gun violence people (of course, his agenda doesn't include meeting with drug comany representatives to find out what the drugs did to warp these people's minds to turn them into killers.)

The impression you get from this administration and the MSM is that, if you put a gun in someone's hand, it somehow magically turns them into a bad guy (complete with a goatee and a maniacal laugh...), so the only solution is to get rid of the guns. And of course, the administration and the Chomical wouldn't bother considering that maybe... maybe... the problem has more to do with mind-altering medications and drugs that the FDA gleefully approves. The media silence about the involvement of the drugs in these cases is a little bit troubling. Why does this get absolutely no attention?

 Do reporters for the MSM know how ridiculously partisan and biased they sound when they only trumpet one side of the issue?  And do people in the media and the government know how crazy people are for their guns in this country? (let alone in Texas?)

Mainstream Media seems to really be playing up gun control lately...

The mainstream media is really hammering at the gun issue lately, with non-stop story after story about gun control, like this one (of course, being Yahoo! news, the story is mostly a joke, but I just read it for the comments, which are far more rational than the actual "news" article). So there were shootings recently, and now the press is getting involved in doing what it can to play one side of the issue over and over again, while ignoring any and all stories about guns used responsibly, or for hunting, or for protection. It makes me uncomfortable. I don't own a gun, but I'm all for those who do, especially when it's my neighbors. Maybe it's time to get one before the mainstream media pushes out another hundred or so biased stories about guns.

Moore to the Point -

Thoughtful question by Dr. Moore on Time's article about the pro-life movement, and my response.  Either my comments are blocked or just not being saved correctly due to my browser (probably the former) but here's my response regardless:

A very good article, and I think you make some good points from a political standpoint that most of the legislation from a "pro-life" standpoint is merely symbolic in nature, especially from so-called pro-life candidates.  But I think the issue is much bigger than simply the abortion platform as well.  I've wondered why it is that in the evangelical church today, you find married elected officer serving that are either deliberately childless, or only chose to bring up one child.  Can one truly be "pro-life" if at the same time they shun the blessing of a fruitful womb? (either biologically or adoptive.)  What testimony does a married church elder make, in light of the "pro-life" viewpoint, when he and his wife willingly decide not to raise any children?  The abortion issue is big... but I wonder sometimes if an issue like this is just as big, but avoided being taboo?
