After months of teasing Game of Thrones recently aired what purportedly was the biggest and longest battle sequence in film history. But as soon as the episode aired the internet started to echo with criticism the battle was too dark and incoherent. While the makers adamantly claim the visual darkness in the episode was an intentional creative choice an enormous volume of fans are upset they couldn’t properly see what was going on. read more

George Carlin on Saving the Planet

The following video is comedian George Carlin’s rather politically incorrect take on saving the planet, and how mankind is not to blame for its destruction.

Is Soylent Green Really that Fantastic?

The other day, an internet article jumped off the screen at me.

It was posted on the progressive, Seattle PI website, and was entitled, “After death: Washington state set to become the first to allow human composting.”

That’s right. “Seattleites will likely soon have a unique option to remember their loved ones after they die. Washington state is set to become the first to allow “natural organic reduction” as a burial alternative — commonly referred to as human composting — as a bill legalizing the process was approved by the legislature and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee’s desk.”

“Democratic Sen. Jamie Pedersen of Seattle sponsored the bill because he said it makes sense — it’s a low environmental impact way to dispose of remains. ‘We can show the way for the world about a better way in dealing with this universal human experience,’ Pedersen said in a tweet. …composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back. The process will turn a body into soil within weeks.”

Katrina Spade, CEO of Recompose, said that, “Americans are largely faced with two options after death: cremation and burial. Burial takes up a lot of space, and those buried can own their plots forever, which is not sustainable. Cremation releases greenhouse gases and particulates. But composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back.

Now, to help save the planet, instead of burying or cremating grandma, you can have her ground up and made into compost. What a great and enlightened idea. read more

America considers itself a great car loving nation and yet, according to a U.S. News and World Report study, only 18 percent of American drivers even know how to use a manual transmission, and only about 5 percent of vehicles sold in the US in 2016 had three pedals. To much of the rest of the Western world, knowing how to drive stick is a point of considerable pride, and many serious enthusiasts feel that driving automatics removes a key element of connection with the car. read more

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more

Video Podcast – The Problem with the 24 Hour News Cycle

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Every hour of every day has to be filled with new content, because the average reader has the attention span of a three year old. Case in point:

This is from Yahoo News:

“A 34-year-old Louisiana teacher is accused of raping her 10-year-old male student.”

But is it true? It may be, but so far the incident has just been alleged, and not been verified. But what if isn’t true. Her mugshot has already been all over the internet. If the allegation is false, where does she go to get her reputation back? The internet is replete with false allegations which have ruined lives, mainly due to the alleged perpetrator being tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. read more

The Left Fears Bill Barr Most of All

Democrats will always telegraph who they are afraid of most. Oh sure, if one has an ‘R” for Republican after his or her name, you can be certain you’re generally a target.

As an aside, and completely off topic, it’s odd that I, one the more politically incorrect humans in America, actually gave a thought when I penned the words his and her. As if there is another option. Yet today, according to one source there are now 96. I just chuckled under my breath as I wrote the two terms, thinking how absurd society has become and even I, in some small way, while not succumbing to it, did give it even a passing thought.

Anyway, back to it.

But while the left will never be kind to the R’s, there will rarely be a full-throated assault on them, for they are not the ones the dems fear. read more
