We Don’t Want to Look at Your Phone – UPDATED

Friday, August 29, 2014 9:00 pm

I don’t know if what this video has to say is all that important in the grand scheme of things, but I recently caught up on “Sherlock”, and had the exact same thought the video’s creator did, which made me really appreciate his other points, as well. Hope you do, too.


[A Brief Look at Texting and the Internet in Film] (Viewer #145,786)

UPDATE: I replaced the Vimeo version of the video with the YouTube version, so it should play better now.

Undocumented

Friday, August 29, 2014 8:00 pm

In Texas, a teenager managed to secretly live behind a stack of boxes for 3 days inside a Walmart.

I’m surprised Obama doesn’t grant him amnesty and declare him an employee.

Give Them What They Deserve

The Department of Education released a fact sheet which stated that illegal immigrant minors are “entitled to” a public education.

Ok, then start with a civics lesson – lawbreakers don’t get to stay.

Obama Warned Us – Presidential Visit

Friday, August 29, 2014 2:00 pm

“ICYMI: President Obama visited mom-and-pop shops in historic Parkville, Missouri: http://ofa.bo/f0Xf

@BarackObama

“Which lost an entire day’s revenue, because the Secret Service blockaded all the actual shoppers with real money out of the area. Stimulus!”

Next Step for Peace

UN Security Council plans to send a “strongly-worded” letter to ISIS insurgents in Iraq.

That’s a good plan. It’s written in exploding ink, right?

A Million Dollars’ Worth of Free Advice

Thursday, August 28, 2014 10:00 pm

You can find the long version by watching this rambly, chatty video, or I can just boil it down for you into the money quote at 3:07

“That’s my advice for navigating the treacherous waters of life after school. Find someone who’s doing something you want to do, better than you can do it, and listen to them.”

Just When You Think It Can’t Get Any Weirder

Thursday, August 28, 2014 9:00 pm

This serves no purpose, other than to be a not-dull way to pass 3 minutes. I guess the best way to describe it is “Gilliamesque“.

If you want a political metaphor, I guess I’d say this is the land of “Obamacare Works”.

Feel free to turn the sound down or off if it gets on your nerves. It’s all about the visuals.

And be cautious about viewing other items on this guy’s channel… depending on where you draw the line between unpredictable and unsettling, he can get pretty creepy.

Fiddle must’ve been in the shop.

They Really Need This Help

Thursday, August 28, 2014 4:00 pm

A pioneering new treatment is being tested that would allow a simple injection to aid the recovery of hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients.

Useful for people who’ve seen their new insurance premiums under Obamacare.

They’ll Get It Right THIS Time

A new report shows widespread timesheet fraud among US Patent Office workers who telecommute.

Say, isn’t this the same government that’s going to squeeze the waste out of healthcare?

Partly I’d Be Curious, Partly I Just Want to See Liberals Hit With Rocks

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 10:00 pm

The Virginian [High Praise!] on Ferguson:

Here’s the baseline: MSNBC’s Larry O’Conner gets rocks thrown at him by masked members of the race riot in Ferguson. He’s quite calm about it and keeps spinning.

Let’s try an experiment, at the next Tea Party rally, throw rocks at the press.

There’s a video at the link. Rocks don’t happen until about 30 seconds in.

Welcome Him Warmly

To prove a point, activist filmmaker James O’Keefe snuck across the border into the US while dressed as Osama bin Laden.

Since he was both illegal and dead, did he get to vote Democrat twice?
