Zucker Takes on Iraq Study Group

Zucker does it again! David Zucker, the Hollywood director (Airplane, Scary Movie) turned conservative has created a great video that puts the recommendations of the Iraq study group to negotiate with Iran in a much needed historical perspective. With the announcement by Iran today that they are now a nuclear power what do we have to negotiate except for our own lives?

Walnut Creek UFO

May 26, 1987 - Waterbury, CT, USA

Okay…. so I’ve never been one to have a serious opinion on UFO’s but I think I may be a believer. I got a call from Crystal tonight at 9:48 as she was coming home from work. She was rather upset and talking very fast into her phone and we spoke for 1:48min. So, what happened you ask? Well, she was looking at a UFO. We looked on the Internet for photographs of other UFO sightings and we found an image of what she saw! This was taken in Waterbury, CT on May 26, 1987.

Sony Madness

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but there has been a bit of a buzz about the new Playstation 3 gaming console. On ebay tonight I found 4 listings for a Playstation selling for over $10 million. Two sold and two didn’t. The record as of tonight was an auction that had a selling price for $20,000,000!!! I guess someone really loves video games!

Ebay Listing 06-11-28, Sony PS3

The list price for the Playstation3 was $599.00 and there were approximately 300,000 units available on the product release date. According to some blogs approximately 10% of the first units sold were resold on Ebay for “as low” as $900. I did see many sold between $5,000 and $500,000.

‘Scary Movie’ Producer Makes Campain Ad; Mocks Democrats

As reported by the Drudge Report 10/10/06.

[pro-player]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h3GPc_yMCE[/pro-player]

The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained an exclusive copy of a “scary” campaign advertisement created by Hollywood producer and director David Zucker that was intended to be used by GOP organizations in the closing weeks of the 2006 campaign.

However, the advertisement was deemed “too hot” by GOP strategists all across Washington, DC who have refused to use it!

In the ad, Zucker, producer of SCARY MOVIE 4, recreates former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s 2000 visit to North Korea. During the visit, Secretary Albright presented North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il with a basketball autographed by former NBA superstar Michael Jordan.

An actress playing Secretary Albright is shown presenting Kim Jong Il with the Michael Jordan basketball, painting the walls of Osama bin Laden’s Afghanistan cave and turning a blind eye to suicide bombers. In one scene her skirt rips as she changes the tire of a Middle Eastern dictator’s limousine.

One GOP strategist said “jaws dropped” when the ad was first viewed. “Nobody could believe Zucker thought any political organization could use this ad. It makes a point, but it’s way over the top.”

Zucker is the producer and director of comedies such as “Airplane” and “The Naked Gun.” In 2004, Zucker, a longtime Democrat, embraced the Republican Party based on concerns he had about national security issues and voted for President George W. Bush.

Path to 911 Initial Reaction

Crystal and I just finished watching the first part of the ABC mini-series, “The Path to 911.” Cinematically it is a very captivating “action thriller” that rivals the most intense and well done action spy, CIA movies that have ever been done. I find the format of the film valuable, because instead of sitting through a dry intellectual documentary you are transported to the time and places of the events, you feel as if you are there as they are unfolding and that makes it more accessible to a larger audience and helps you to understand what happened.

Due to my limited knowledge of the actually conversations of those involved I can not make a judgment on the accuracy of that content, but I think that as a representation of the attitudes and events of the 8 ½ years leading up to 911 and as a film to understand our enemy in the war on terrorism the film is important. To understand the motivations and there capabilities of our enemies makes this film is invaluable and should be watched by every American.

We are NOT dealing with a rag tag group of Gorilla worriers who ride camels and herd sheep. Our enemy is highly educated, imaginative, and ruthless, and bent on the destruction or conversion of America to Islam. Nothing less. I was surprised by their use of technology, including advanced computer encryption techniques, and advanced explosives capabilities. I was also surprised by the internationality of the conflict and the vast efforts of the CIA and FBI.

In the nineties I was oblivious to the terrorism threat as were most Americans. It’s time for us to wake us to this threat. They have been at war with us for over 13 years now, it’s time we became committed to fighting back!
