… BUT NAMES WILL NEVER HURT ME (Game Show) Liberals and Conservatives try to shame contestants into silence by calling them “babykillers” if they are pro-choice on abortion and calling them “racists” if they are pro-choice on Muhammad cartoons.

ALL AMERICAN HISTORY SHOW (Non-Fiction) America’s Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the “academic” (LMFAO) world explain how America caused the previous ice age, the Black Plague, the capitalist system, the Crusades ,etc. Reasonable people who call in to point out America didn’t even exist as a nation yet for most of those events will be rudely shouted down.  Continue reading

ALL IN THE FAMILY: THE NEXT GENERATION

Rob Reiner

Rob Reiner’s character Meathead struggles to deal with the fact that his worldview is FIVE DECADES out of date.

All in the Family: The Next Generation, the brand-new sitcom from Glitternight Productions debuts tonight. Cult director Eddie Wozniak strikes again with this controversial update to the original 1970s series which blended the standard family sitcom format with a nearly Ibsenesque examination of social and political issues. 

Rob Reiner is back as Meathead aka Michael Stivic. This time around Stivic is the Archie Bunker-type character to reflect the way that Rob Reiner’s generation of self-infatuated 1960s fools have grown as stagnated in their thinking and as trapped in the past as was the original Archie Bunker generation.

BLU-RAY RELEASE OF THE BURQA (2013)

NOW ON BLU-RAY IT’S ONE OF 2013’s MOST CONTROVERSIAL MOVIES! 

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women's rights.

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women’s rights.

THE BURQA (2013) – The Burqa was THE action film of the year 2013. This movie had a daring premise, incredible stuntwork plus more killings and blood squibs than any three Quentin Tarantino movies put together. There was also an unforgettable performance by the lead actress, whose name is STILL being kept a secret over fears of violent reprisals from Islamist terrorist groups.

The film was set in 2013 Iraq. Our heroine,  known only as “The Burqa” emerges from the desert sands, clad in the outfit she is named for and with automatic weapons strapped to each of her sashaying thighs. Like Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name and John Garko’s Holy Ghost, both from Spaghetti Westerns, the Burqa is an unstoppable gunslinger who litters the land with her fallen foemen.

The audience first meets the title figure when she saves a teenage Muslim girl from being raped and killed by Islamist fanatics for daring to dress in western clothing and to advocate abortion rights. Countless Continue reading

“I come from a long line of slave-owning scumbags.”

ROOTS 3: THE BEN AFFLECK STORY – This was a fascinating look at how involved Ben’s ancestors were in the slave trade AND about his heavy-handed attempts to get his family’s history of slave-owning censored from a PBS documentary.     Continue reading
