Sharif Abdel Brady?

I kind of think that Democracy Now's senior producer Sharif Abdel Kouddous has a sort of nutty Gary Cole as Mike Brady thing goin' on.
a wise man once said, "wherever you go...there you are."

President Obama State of the Union Address 2011 - an excerpt

the following is a brief excerpt from President Obama's 2011 State of the Union Address which was broadcast earlier this evening:
My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but
tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward,
and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.

Hauled Away As Garbage!

Here is what J. Eric Fuller actually blurted out to Trent Humphries at the town hall meeting last Saturday in Tucson which subsequently got him ejected and arrested. It is unknown who took the photograph of him.

I didn't mean to say that simple-minded Tea Party rednecks should be hauling garbage.
I meant to say that they should be hauled away...
AS garbage !

Dan Aykroyd and Dr. Michael Lemole

Is it just me...or do these two guys kind of look alike?

...and while I'm on the subject of look alikes, how about the tall elf from Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Ned Ryerson from Groundhog Day?

From The Beginning of Nudge, Nudge - Monty Python

This scene from the beginning of the Monty Python sketch "Nudge, Nudge" only takes about five seconds, but it shows a wonderful comedic brilliance and an honest subtlety in the way it's acted.

What could the man at the bar possibly be reading that is so interesting to the half mesmerized interloper beside him?
Oh, oh...he's been found out.
"Cor blimey squire, that's a good one eh? Know what I mean?"
Annoyed, the patron raises his eyelids in silent, bewildered astonishment. One can almost here him thinking, "What's with this nutter?"

It's Real Hard To Be Free When You Are Bought And Sold In The Marketplace

video
You know, this used to be a hell of a good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it.

Man everybody got chicken, that's what happened man. Hey we can't even get into a second-rate hotel, I mean, a second-rate motel, you dig? They think we'd cut their throat. They're scared.

They're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent to them.

All we represent to them is somebody who needs a haircut.

Oh, no. What you represent to them...is freedom.

What the hell's wrong with freedom man what it's all about.

Oh yeah, that's right. That's what it's all about. But talking about it and being it that's two different things. It's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Don't tell anybody that they're not
free, because they'll get busy killing and maiming to prove to you that they are. They're going to talk to you and talk to you and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's going to scare them.

Well, it don't make them running scared.

No, it makes them dangerous. Ni, ni, ni, ni, Swamp.

Swamp.

Do you ever....You ever talk to bullfrogs in the middle of the night?

Not generally.

You don't?

No, man.

You know what I used to do?

What did you used to do?

Well I tell you one thing I didn't used to do is talk to bullfrogs in the middle of the night, foolish.

You're out of your mind!

That's right.

You Barely Hear A Peep

There's been a lot of buzz lately about the thousands of Red-Winged Blackbirds found dead in Arkansas this past weekend. Even Universe Today is taking notice in a piece from January 6, 2011 called, Aflockalypse:
5,000 blackbirds falling dead from the sky in Arkansas; tens of thousands of dead fish in Chesapeake Bay; 50-100 dead birds found strewn in lawns in Sweden; 40,000 dead crabs washed up on England’s shores; 530 penguins, numerous other seabirds, five dolphins, and three giant sea turtles dead in Brazil; 200 American Coots dead on a Texas bridge; hundreds of snapper fish dead in New Zealand. And the list keeps growing.
Were these deaths caused by humans polluting the air, land and water? Perhaps, but each year in the U.S. alone people are directly responsible for the deaths of:
38 million cows and calves, 95 million hogs, 5 million sheep and goats, 278 million turkeys, 20 million ducks, and over 7 billion chickens. Most of these animals are bred, raised and killed on enormous mechanized farms that specialize in one species and house hundreds or thousands of animals at a time. (Deep Vegetarianism, Fox 1999)
and you barely hear a peep about that!

Michael Moore On Bradley Manning

from The Rachel Maddow Show 12/21/10
video
Bradley Manning, this man has been in solitary confinement for seven months, seven months; and his crime is, his crime, is that he did what they said at Nuremburg we're to do. If you see something happening, especially during wartime, that is illegal, immoral, you have a responsibility as a human being to stand up and say something; and he came across, allegedly, the video of our soldiers firing from a helicopter and murdering two reporters from Reuters along with a bunch of Iraqi civilians. That is being done in my name and with my tax dollars. I want to know when that's going on, and I admire anybody who stands up and tells us that's going on. He should be rewarded, not be in prison.
 Amen my good man! A-fuckin'-men!
