Movie Review: '300: Rise of an Empire'

Putting the word "Rise" in a movie title is usually the kiss of death as far as quality is concerned, with the notable exception of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."  In the case of the "300" sequel, we have decent entertainment with some great stunt work and visual spectacle, but it's also missing the wit, soul, and charisma of the groundbreaking original.  It's an expensive movie that mounts some huge visual spectacle, but it also somehow manages to feel like a direct-to-video sequel.  With one exception, it just doesn't seem like anyone involved in "300: Rise of an Empire" cares as much as Zack Snyder and his original crew.

U.S. government to relinquish oversight of Internet addresses

The U.S. government is going to surrender its oversight role over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) sometime in late 2015, according to an announcement on Friday evening.  ICANN is the organization that sets up Web addresses, converting those easily-remembered "dot-com" website names into the numbers used internally by Internet browsers.  Everyone agrees the end of American stewardship is historic, but opinions on the wisdom of the move, and its ramifications for Internet users, vary widely.

Illegitimate government and penciled-in borders

As is his wont, Ron Paul managed to go overboard in his defense of Vladimir Putin's annexation of the Crimean peninsula, somehow extrapolating a legal Russian right of invasion from their lease on the Sevastopol naval base.  He thought Russia might respond to our accusations of occupation by snapping that America's occupying Cuba because of Guantanamo Bay, which bizarrely ignores the significant detail that the United States is not actually occupying Cuba, the way Russia has troops all over the Crimea, and Putin's talking about how the boys might enjoy a romp all the way to Kiev.

Sticking up for Julie Boonstra

Dan Calabrese at the Detroit News lays into the media organs that helped Democrats paint cancer patient Julie Boonstra as a liar for complaining about ObamaCare, recalling an earlier age when the media afflicted the powerful with tough questions, rather than teaming up to take down inconvenient private citizens: Mar 13, 2014 8:45 PM PT

In defense of Tesla

I've been highly skeptical of electric cars in the past, not because I have any problem with the cars or anyone who wants to drive them, but because of all the compulsory tax money forced into the programs.  The Chevy Volt is by far the worst offender.  It's one of the biggest wastes of U.S. taxpayer money you can find, outside of ObamaCare.   Mar 13, 2014 8:56 AM PT

Mysterious Mexican Army border incursion

Vladimir Putin isn't the only one who can slip a few armed men across an inconvenient border.  Buzzfeed has a big story about a possible Mexican Army incursion into Arizona.  It's a big enough deal to have Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) on the case: Mar 8, 2014 2:07 PM PT

Russian troops drop a minefield in Crimea

Hey, didn't their used to be a determined group of international activists who thought land mines were a crime against humanity, given their propensity for causing civilian collateral damage, sometimes long after the conflict has ended? Mar 8, 2014 1:27 PM PT

Liberty and transcendence

During their CPAC 2014 speeches, both Mike Huckabee and Ralph Reed mentioned the importance of religious faith to the American understanding of liberty.  The ongoing assault against freedom of conscience - and it is an assault, deliberate and strategic - makes it more important than ever to understand this connection between liberty and transcendence.
