"The Day the Earth Stood Still" -- Cop-Out Ending?

I am looking forward to the 2008 remake of the classic 1951 sci-fi thriller "The Day the Earth Stood Still". But with trepidation.

Yes, it will be a big action special effects blockbuster. The Earth in peril (actually the human race in peril -- as it rightly deserves to be). But, I fear that humanity will be spared in a typical Hollywood feel-good happy-ending cop-out.

I suspect that because the girl (Jennifer Connelly), is so sweet and good, epitomizing the best of humanity, that Klaatu will spare all of humanity.

Big mistake. If the aliens have an arsenal of super technology, why don't they do a "cleansing", a culling, like the Anunnaki (Annunaki) did back in the days of Noah's Ark?

At least save her -- and me -- and I'll be happy to attempt to repopulate the Earth with her assistance. Providing Klaatu provides some nannies for our spawn. "Yeah, Baby" (Austin Powers).

California Brush Fires Destruction - The Reasons Why

California Brush Fires Destruction - The Reasons Why

There are several reasons why every year in western states such as California, and Southern California, in particular, there are devastating brush fires.

One reason, in case you haven't noticed, most of the areas are dry. There is little rain. The vegetation that does grow naturally, burns easily and rapidly.

Next, government policies are to put out all small fires as soon as possible. That leads to an accumulation of unburned vegetation, which creates a setting for HUGE future fires.

The reason for putting out small fires is that people have built in the dry areas, and they don't want their stuff burned out.

Now, ask yourself, why do people build in dangerous areas? One reason is stupidity. Another reason is, "everybody has to live somewhere".

The ROOT reason is accelerating overpopulation. New population has no place to go except for more dangerous and undesirable locations. Is that so fricking hard to understand? Thanks to generations of uncontrolled breeding -- that is, thanks to people dropping litters of spawn with no more forethought than cats, rats, and dogs -- we have a catastrophic overpopulation problem.

As long as population keeps increasing, and is not REDUCED, the problems of fires in particular, and of the environment, energy, ocean fishery depletion... will continue to WORSEN.

Note to religious wackos - Catholics, fundamentalist Christians, Mormons, Muslims... "If you are against birth control and ABORTION, you are a f-ing idiot -- LITERALLY!"

Note to lefty loonies, environmentalists... "Whatever your cause, it is a LOST CAUSE without population control."

No Solace from Quantum of Solace

No Solace from Quantum of Solace.

I was going to see the new James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace", but after reading several reviews, I'm not so sure. Maybe I'll rent it someday. But that "someday" list is huge.

Why I probably won't see it is that it doesn't seem to be a real Bond movie. It has been likened to a Bourne action film, only not as good. If I wanted to see a Jason Bourne movie, I would go see one. Or a Transporter movie. Or a Batman or Spiderman movie. And I have seen several of those. When I go see a Bond movie, I want it to be a Bond movie.

I don't want a Bond movie that is solely action without the James Bond movie trappings. And worse, one that is politically correct in the modern sense in that violence is OK, but T&A and sex is not. And that has to have "feelings" to cater to the potential female audience.

I want babes -- lots of them -- in bikinis or harem pants in various scenes. There has to be a female villain/accomplice in a bikini or negligee. There has to be a inadvertent female ally. I want Bond to have sex with them. UN-safe sex. Pump and dump. I want Bond to be tough and ruthless in some scenes and charming in others. There has to be a casino scene with Bond in a tuxedo. A wet suit temporarily over it is optional. Bond has to somewhere in the movie introduce himself as, "Bond, James Bond". He has to have a martini, "shaken, not stirred". (Oh, sorry, I guess martinis are so passé.)

Gadgets don't need to be overdone, but where is "Q"? Where is Moneypenny? And we don't need to have an "equal opportunity" female "M". (Sorry, Dame Dench.)

Finally, "Quantum of Solace" is extremely short because it is all action, without the trappings (call them gimmicks -- so what?) that would make it a real James Bond movie. I want my money's worth. I want to linger over it like a fine wine, not like chugging a 7-11 Big Gulp.

Fortunately, I have tapes and DVDs of most of the old James Bond movies. Which one should I next view again?

Alcohol Auto Fuel - Break the Oil Company Monopoly

Alcohol Auto Fuel - Break the Oil Company Monopoly
Run your car on cheaper alcohol NOW!


David Blume http://www.alcoholcanbeagas.com/
interviewed on Coasttocoastam radio

Blume's site is talking about replacing gasoline with alcohol. Convert back part of your office building or your garage (less space required than a car) to build a still.
IRS tax credits, maybe also Calif. credits.
Cost about $1500 if you can weld yourself, to build one to put out 100 gallons a day. Sells for a little less than gasoline. And a lot less than gasoline a few months ago, and in the future.
Most cars can be converted or re-tuned to run on it. Alcohol damage to newer cars is an oil company promoted myth. (Brazil imports negligible oil).
Blume recommends to set up a sales area in back of your building or form a coop in a corner of an abandoned strip mall.
You will have to find a source of material to distill, which could be a problem out there in the desert, though. Sugar beets, cane, corn, KELP... Or a small patch of land irrigated to grow cattails would be all you need. I don't recall the area mentioned (maybe a 50' x 1000' plot ??)

SAFER and cleaner than gasoline. Fords back in early 1900s would run on either gas or alcohol, but oil companies got alcohol off the market (prohibition was not about drinking)

And, alcohol lends itself to local production and strengthening local communities instead of big corporations, big banks, and big government.

Almost any car from 1980s on can go 50% right now with no modifications.
Caution -- this will clean your engine, ;) , so the gunk removed from internal parts will end up in oil, so you will need to change your oil after your engine has been cleaned out.
Another caution, :) , on full alcohol, some engine computers will turn on engine warning lights, since emissions are so low, that the computer thinks a smog sensor has failed.

Bill Maher's "Religulous" - Must See

I saw Bill Maher's "Religulous" movie yesterday. In case you didn't know it, religion is dangerous, evil, stupid. But then that is just preaching to the choir.

Many funny moments, and many informative but scary moments. A lot of wackos out there.

Yes, Maher does frequently interrupt some wacko or another that he is interviewing. While that detracts a bit from him, can't blame him for it -- a greater bunch of losers, idiots, and fanatics he put together in one collection you couldn't imagine. Until you see the movie.

Oil Wars in the Mid-East (Iran, Iraq) - the Reason is Out-of-Control Population Growth

Why the Wars for Oil in the Mid-East cesspools of Iraq and Iran (coming soon)? The reason is out-of-control overpopulation growth.

If people worldwide had not -- and were still not -- breeding like effing cats, rats and dogs with no thought of consequence, there would not have been a "need" to go to those cesspool Arab lands filled with humans even stupider than those in the U.S., Europe, Asia, India, and South- and Central-America, in search of oil.

If not for a population far in excess of sustainable carrying capacity, the effing Arab wogs would have remained impoverished, backwater, irrelevant, if it were not for their oil. So, all the breeders have caused a hornet's nest, empowered by oil money, to be loosed upon the world.

And "our" governments don't mind -- Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Gore -- THEIR asses are safe, and they have a great "excuse" to increase control over the sheeple, and me as collateral damage.

Eff'em all -- the power-sucking governments -- politicians and bureaucrats. Eff'em all -- the slave religions and their sheep -- the Christians, Jews, Muslims.

Brainwashed by the Establishment Media

They keep pounding at us with incessant politically correct views and terminology. They even got to me. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom (a free mind).

Yesterday, I posted about the water shortage in California:
California Water Shortage - Not My Problem

There is no water shortage. There are just too many people wanting the existing water. The problem is not too little water; it is too many people -- overpopulation.

In any event, I actually wrote "illegal immigrants" in one sentence. Sheesh. It is "illegal aliens", not "illegal immigrants", not "undocumented workers" or whatever the politically correct term du jour happens to be.

It's "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens", "illegal aliens"....

California Water Shortage - Not My Problem

There is a water shortage in California, especially Southern California. Duh! It's a fricking DESERT, you know. And, there are TOO MANY PEOPLE.

TOO MANY PEOPLE. Hordes of illegal immigrants illegal aliens. Idiots of all races dropping litters of spawn like there is no tomorrow, with no more thought of consequences than cats, rats, and dogs.

It's time to start spaying and neutering these animals in human skins, and the politicians and bureaucrats pandering to them.

I have not contributed to the population explosion, so I am not going to go out of my way to conserve water, save energy, recycle, preserve endangered species, whatever, unless the pigs put a gun to my head or I cannot financially maintain my lifestyle. Let the fricking religious wackos opposed to abortion and birth control pay the price of overpopulation. Let the liberal lefty-loonies so interested in "saving the children" and "la raza" pay the price of overpopulation. As far as I'm concerned, they can all just go pound sand. 'f 'em all.

Ron Paul for President? No Way. Why? Two Words.

Two words:

Goldwater 1964.

More words:

Barry Goldwater was the Republican Party nominee for President of the U.S. in 1964.
He ran against the incumbent President Democratic Party hack Lyndon Johnson.
He lost. Big Time.

What was Goldwater's message? Very similar to that of Ron Paul's today.
Barry Goldwater was classified as a conservative. A rather radical one at that. But he got press coverage.

Ron Paul is classified today simply as a radical. He gets negligible media coverage.

In contrast with Goldwater, Ron Paul is not even going to get the Republican nomination.
(If he does, I will reconsider my philosophical beliefs regarding "God" and miracles.)
He is not going to be elected President, neither as a Republican nor as an independent nor as a libertarian (either capital or lower case "l").


It would take an intelligent and informed populace with a subset of intelligent and informed voters to vote for someone other than a Republicrat or Demopublican.
Think that will happen? Fuggedaboudit.
It would take a majority of voters to be intelligent and informed.
Look around you. Most people, including voters, are stupid and ignorant. 'Nuff said.

Well, a few more words:

"Nothing has been more amply demonstrated during the past three thousand years than this: that the great majority of men do not esteem, or understand, or even desire personal liberty." [Freeman Tilden, from A World in Debt, 1936.]

"... monstrous economic delusions have never once, in history, been removed by being exposed
in printed form by thinkers upon the subject." [Freeman Tilden, from A World in Debt, 1936.]
