If I go to the movies this weekend, which one should I see?

The Raiders have a bye week so I won’t be watching much football, and the Giants games are in the evening. I was thinking about catching a movie.

What do you think?

    If the movie Samsara is playing where you live, go see it….it’s stunning. No words, just images and it is truly a journey. In the vein of two classics from the 70s….Koyanasqattsi and Powaqattsi. Also, if you have not seen 2016, you should.

  7. See this: “The Master”

  8. Catarina: Here’s the REAL Friday news dump, released after market closure: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-10-05/us-foodstamp-usage-rises-new-record-high

    Finally, and putting it all into perspective, since December 2007, or the start of the Great Depression ver 2.0, the number of jobs lost is 4.5 million, while those added to foodstamps and disability rolls, has increased by a unprecedented 21 million. Oh and about $7 or $8 trillion in debt. Who’s counting really.

    This is soooo embarrassing.

    My neighbor called.

    “Are you okay?

    “Yeah, why?

    “It sounded like you were in pain”

    “I was singing.”


    I’m serious. That really just happened.

    for no reason other than it made me laugh and smile

      Obama drinks his own koolaid. I like the ending of the essay:

      The key difference now is that the hunger for Obama has been replaced with the indigestion that follows after four unimpressive years in office. In sales, they say you sell the sizzle, not the steak. In 2008, the man was all sizzle, and the ravenous throng was sold. Now he must sell the steak itself, and it’s full of gristle, fat and bone. He may yet still close the deal, but only if people fall for his Puss in Boots eyes.

    Matthew Continetti:

    As Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama debated Wednesday evening it was possible to detect, if one was alert, the ground of American politics shift beneath one’s feet. Sometime during the first 45 minutes or so, when it became clear that Romney, not moderator Jim Lehrer, was in command, the tectonic plates of Obama’s ego and of reality crashed together. The tremor that followed was pronounced. What had been to the Democrats and the media an irrevocable fact—that Romney’s campaign was in shambles and Obama’s reelection assured—crashed resoundingly. Like all earthquakes the convulsion produced panic, in this case among liberals. Their response was typical of their kind: They devoured their own.

    “A liberal,” said Robert Frost, “is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.” Wednesday saw poetic confirmation of his aphorism. Not only was Obama unable to take his own side against Romney; afterwards Democrats and the liberal media could defend neither their fellow partisan Obama nor their colleague Lehrer. The hysterical and self-destructive frenzy that resulted was nothing less than spectacular. Patrons of social media could watch, in real time, as the president’s most ferocious champions realized that the avatar of hope and change could not withstand a direct and withering criticism; could convey only diffidence and contempt and exhaustion when confronted by a talented opponent; and could not possibly live up to the mythological expectations that his devotees had constructed for him.

    • I made the tectonic analogy on John Smart’s show last night. Romney took a crowbar and pried the jamming the press had manufactured lose. If I spelled anything wrong, blame the beer. Or the smartphone I’m typing on.

    • angienc says:

      You know I agree with all of that except the line about Lehrer — I know he’s most probably sympathetic to the Dems *but* (and I said this before) he’s an old-school journalist — I think he moderated the debate properly by *not* exerting himself into the fray. The criticism of him that he was “run over by Romney” is bullshit spin by the progs — their real criticism is that he did not protect Obama, and that simply was *not* his job.

      • lyn5 says:

        I enjoyed the debate because of Lehrer’s gentle guidance. I saw that he helped Obama twice, but he let both men debate. It’s not his fault that Obama crashed and he stayed out of the way.

        • angienc says:

          I enjoyed it for that reason too, lyn5 — and honestly, those 2 times Lehrer tried to “help” Obama, I really think he was just trying to get him to wrap it up (he does drone on & on). But even if he was trying to “help”– I liked & appreciated the job he did as moderator overall.

          I also really enjoyed it because that was the most epic beat down in any debate I’ve ever seen in my life — don’t let the revisionists tell you otherwise — there has never been — not Reagan v. Carter, not Clinton v. Bush or v. Dole — a presidential debate that was SO lopsided. This was the 1990 Super Bowl XXIV of debates (49ers over Broncos 55 to 10). It completely validated everything we’ve been saying about Obama since 2008.

      • swanspirit says:

        That article was so well written I wish I wrote it !

    • britgirls says:

      Excellent article! I do feel bad for Jim Lehrer. I think he was as bewildered as Obama at the turn the debate took, but ultimately it was a great debate. And, true enough, if the tables had been turned and Obama had been the victor then he would’ve been praised to high heaven. They’re just looking for someone to blame.

    • DM says:

      The debate was the antidote to the koolaid drinkers. It was an awakening as they watched Romney, the competent smart candidate, debate the incompetent bumbling Obama.

  17. indigogrrl1 says:

    this is idiotic.

  18. carol haka says:

    Pat Buchanan just stated Univ of Wisconson had some ‘splaining to do after students declared Obama should have been allowed to use teleprompter. Hyste4rical! 👿

  19. Anderson Cooper and that Ali guy just tried to bully Jack Welch on CNN. He wasn’t having it. That is going to backfire with everyone but the Obot crew. Beating up on an old guy like that. Fucktards.

    • Welch just kept saying, “Look, you’d have to have 5% growth in GDP in the last quarter for that, and we didn’t have it. The numbers don’t add up.”

      Ali kept saying, “I love you man. Will you just admit Romney is a lying sack of shit?” I know whose balls he’s licking at night.

      • DM says:

        I’m getting to love Mr. Welch. All these newspeople who cover for Obama want Mr. Welch walk it back, and he won’t. Without lying, the media does everything in their power to help Obama, as we see here beating Mr. Welch to walk his tweet back. In the same way, I believe that the BLS did a shoddy job with this report this month. The numbers needed explanation and the BLS provided none. There’s no way that 873K people became employed to drive the unemployment number down to 7.8%, when only 114K jobs were created.

  20. I probably should stop tweeting after 3 beers. Oh well. At least I remembered the period this time.

      Yes , Roland shut his sewer of a mouth and started looking down when Are reminded him what Obama did with NAFTA during the 2008 primary .
      He clammed right up , it was such a pleasure to see .
      He used to argue with me all the time on twitter until I called him scum for complaining about tipping a baggage carrier at a hotel . I called him cheap and a hypocrite and scum and he banned me .

      HA, I am not the only one that wants to drug test him ! President Xanax !

      • britgirls says:

        On my FB newsfeed Yahoo News asks:

        On Oct. 16, President Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney will face off in a town hall debate, and we’re gathering questions for the candidates. Tell us: what would you ask?

        First question I saw posted was “When was Obama last drug tested?” lmao!! All the others since then have been variations on “Romney … why you LIE???” A dog whistle has gone out for sure.

        • DM says:

          I just visited a obot website, and a few commenters said that they believed Mitt had done a line before the debate because he was so alive.

    Anna Kendrick seems like a pretty good actress. She should do some serious acting films, though this one looks fun.

  23. threewickets says:

    In case you haven’t seen, the latest from Nate Silver. Looks like good news for Romney.

      The irony of Tweety freaking out over a tweet.

      • DM says:

        I understand what Mr. Welsh is saying. I call it the OFA bilip. I don’t believe that the people at BLS changed the numbers, but what I do believe is that the BLS was content with issuing numbers that were misleading. Let’s say that I get paid to register people, and I get paid $1.00 per registration, or a few dollars to deliver campaign information door to door. I could tell the BLS that I’m unemployed because there’s no real employment, just making a few dollars until I find a job, or I could tell the BLS I’m employed and stopped looking for a job. I think the BLS should have investigated the reason for the bump in jobs and given a good explanation, instead of what they said. The change was material and needed a good explanation. What we got from the BLS is that over half a million jobs non-private jobs were created. The BLS says the jobs were not from government or from private businesses. What were they? We don’t know. After the election is over, the numbers will be adjusted downward and we’ll see that the election is having a material decrease in the unemployment rate, like the census, every 10 years.

        Per the BLS report (household survey):
        “Total employment rose by 873,000 in September, following 3 months of little change.”

        But when the BLS asked businesses, only 114K jobs were created.

    WTF is wrong with Obama

    Pickering has had an extensive diplomatic career and is known for a lot of things. One of them is serving on the board of the American-Iranian Council. The AIC is a problematic organization because while it has more credibility than the NIAC, the National Iranian American Council which is a straight front for the Iranian government, it’s still a group basically dedicated to pushing the Iranian agenda.

    since gas prices have gotten so crazy, I thought I should repost this link. the cheapest place to buy gas in your neighborhood


    also buy gas on wednesday

    • DM says:

      Jeebus. I have half a tank right now. I don’t know if I should rush to fill it up before the gas goes higher, or hope that the gas will drop if I wait until my tank demands more gas.

        The first thing you should do is go to the bank and get pre-approved for a loan. That way if you see a deal you like you can jump on it.
