Balladeer’s Blog’s end of year retrospective continues with this look at May’s best.
BEYOND THE UNIVERSE (1981) – My review of the tenth and final hilariously bad science fiction film from 1980 and 1981 by the Anne Spielberg, Robert Emenegger and Allan Sandler team. Yes, ten films in two years.
This one is set in the year 2081 as the Earth is facing the end and struggles to contact Higher Intelligences in the universe to come to the rescue. Click HERE.
THE REAL DIVIDE IN AMERICA: DEMOCRATS VS THE REST OF US – A piece about how the real divisiveness in America is not black vs white, rich vs poor, gay vs straight, etc. It’s really Democrats vs the rest of us. *** Remember, the people who call others White Supremacists do not speak for all black people, they speak for DEMOCRATS, some of whom happen to be black.
*** People who insist other people must lose their jobs and/or be driven from an entire profession for expressing opinions that supposedly “offend” or “marginalize” entire groups do not speak for those entire groups, they speak only for DEMOCRATS.
*** People who oppose voter i.d. do not represent all people of color, they represent DEMOCRATS.
*** People who pretend to represent educators do not represent all educators, they represent DEMOCRATS in the education field. Democrats file complaints about or otherwise harass anyone who expresses dissenting opinions.
*** People who insist that “some males menstruate” or “some men can become pregnant” (and want everyone who disagrees to be utterly destroyed) do not represent all trans-people. They represent DEMOCRATS, who relate to every issue ONLY in terms of how much hatred and division it can be used to spread. FOR THE WHOLE ITEM CLICK HERE.

Most of this, as you know, covers genres I rarely spend time on. On the “Hatred” blurb, the “Real Divide,” I caution that not only Democrats foster hatred and create environments where hatred can flourish. Too, not ALL Democrats are idiots. (Yawn. Otherwise as always, excellent content. You oughta post a stinker now and again to show yourself human and make the balance of your work all the more impressive.)
Thanks for the compliment! You only found my blog last year, I believe, so you weren’t here when I announced that I was going to “raise awareness” with Democrats about how they exemplify the hate they constantly accuse others of, especially with their nauseating “Hate has no home here” and “Love trumps hate” and all the other slogans they come up with through which they pose as “the hatred police.” I myself was a Democrat before the party went nuts and I went Independent. FDR is still the president I feel had the longest positive impact on the nation, for instance.
FDR was of necessity and of the times. We could argue individual programs – to no point. The compliment? Genuine. One or two “educated” idiots out there whose politics I do not know (and don’t care to know) who infuriate the shix out of me because they assume their education means they are so intelligent no one dare question anything they say and that nothing anyone else has to say can possibly have any value; ignore what they cannot refute. Do not hear but absolute concessions. Last-worders. A pleasure to read and chat with someone who may not agree but is open to discussion. Why I look forward to seeing you pop up in my reader. Thanks. `Press on and have a great afternoon.
Thanks again! Take care and have a great afternoon yourself!
