Review: 'Paranormal Activity 4'

Jan 31, 2013 4:26 AM PT

A few of the bright spots in a film industry currently in more creative trouble than at any other time in its history, are three genre franchises: "Resident Evil," "Fast and Furious" (now that the original cast is back), and "Paranormal Activity." The fourth "Paranormal" arrives on Bluray today, and fans will not be disappointed.

We're all built a little different, and for some reason this series scares me every bit as much as "The Exorcist." For whatever reason my wiring finds these low-budget, found-footage gems so frightening, that watching them is excruciating; an exercise in watching the DVD timer and wishing they would just come to an end. In other words, they’re awesome.

Remember when Obama OWNED the economy? That was SO 2009.

July 14, 2009:

Now, my administration has a job to do, as well, and that job is to get this economy back on its feet.  That's my job.  (Applause.)  And it's a job I gladly accept.  I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, well, this is Obama's economy.  That's fine.  Give it to me.  (Applause.)  My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and harp and gripe.  (Applause.)

Media that Ushered in the Affirmative Action President Now Shocked by the Affirmative Action Economy

Jan 30, 2013 6:13 PM PT

The United States economy contracted in the forth quarter of 2012. Most analysts had higher expectations. Me, not so much. I'm smart enough to know that our president is the guy who was willing to be reduced to his race in order to win an election. Yes. President Obama's skin color was the only reason he was elected in 2008. The man has no actual experience or affection for free markets. So, this morning when I read the New York Times' headline "Economy Contracted Unexpectedly in the forth Quarter," I laughed my ass off. 

America's debt to GDP is racing toward 200 percent. And as Obamacare becomes a reality, companies are downsizing to cope with the coming avalanche of regulations. Unfortunately, the bad economic news we got today is the new normal. Just don't expect the Self-Congratulating Moral Elitists in the mainstream press to realize, or report it.

Chicago's Deadly Gun Culture Can't be Medicated

Jan 30, 2013 5:10 PM PT

As the gun control debate rages on, some serious conservatives and others have called for legislation that would deal with the mentally ill. However, for instance, Chicago newspaper headlines like "Ronnie Chambers, 33, is the fourth child Shirley Chambers has lost to gun violence. She has no more," are the norm in that city. Of the 500 plus homicides in Chicago last year, 80 percent of them where gang related. All this in a city with some of America's most restrictive gun laws. 

While I agree that our focus should be on ways to keep guns away from the insane, shouldn't conservatives be asking the questions the Left won't? For instance, how, after having enacted some of the country's most stringent gun laws did Chicago remain a gun and gang-driven blood bath? The gang violence gripping the city of Chicago, the brutal murders ravishing that city on a daily bases didn't exist a generation ago; so what has happened?

Cruz Embarrasses Anti-Gun Lobby

Jan 30, 2013 3:41 PM PT

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz completely debunks the 'Assault Weapon'  argument during the Senate Judiciary meeting on gun control, when he pointed out that a particular hunting rifle  considered to be 'legal' under Senator Feinstein's newly proposed  weapons ban bill, would be deemed  illegal if  "a piece of plastic" was attached to the rifle.

Cruz said that this gun witch hunt was all about aesthetics, and then held up a plastic pistol grip, explaining that if that the pistol grip was to be affixed to the hunting rifle, then that rifle would then be considered an assault weapon, regardless of the  caliber ammunition it fires.

I'm Dave, and I Like Cars

Jan 30, 2013 3:25 PM PT

...especially Fords. Among the greatest of all Fords was the '49 "Shoebox," the first truly modern postwar car. Dispensing with the bulky pontoon fenders of its predescessors its debut heralded the dawn of the golden age of Detroit auto manufacturing, and - along with its sister, the '49 Mercury - provided a blank canvas for generations of lead sled customizers.

Enjoy a trip in the wayback machine and watch how a young Henry Ford II and crew made the Shoebox happen.
