Meeting Evil - JFC!

   At The Cinema                           

On the road with Samuel L. Jackson

People at the liquor store are always asking, "Hey Rodge, has there ever been a more despicable movie character than Woody Harrelson's Mickey Knox in Natural Born Killers? Or a movie more despicable and lacking even the—perhaps—one iota of redeeming value in that Oliver Stone  movie?"

I've always had to say no, until now.  Samuel L. Jackson, who I believe is actually playing himself in Meeting Evil, (as did Harrelson in Killers) is the new reigning despicable movie character.  And Meeting Evil is the new (well, maybe tied with NBK) piece of shit  movie of all time. 

Now let's talk about what influences mentally unhinged kids to go on shooting sprees.

The price of Obamacare


IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family

Res Ipsa Loquitor

The most grotesque thing about the recent announcement of what Obamacare will cost to purchase is not that the annual national average bronze plan(cheapest) premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000; nor is it that the annual tax  penalty Americans must pay if they fail to obey Obamacare's mandate is, in this instance, about $2000!  No, the most grotesque and frightening thing is the the IRS made the announcement, and is setting the fees. 

The good old friendly IRS.  The agency that has the same powers to interrogate suspects, and punish with internment in a gulag or stalag, as did Stalin's KGB, or Hitler's SS, is running the show.  The IRS is the Death Panel.   Overly histrionic? I think not. 

The pisser is, if I'm understanding this (AND WHO THE HELL KNOWS IF I AM NOT?), that nobody can afford to, or wants to pay $20,000+ a year to buy this monstrosity.  So,  the penalty money is what Obama plans to use to pay for the 50+ percent of residents (not necessarily citizens) who will be added (entitled) to Obamacare rolls at no charge.  And even that won't be enough money!

Despite what dreamworlders like George Will (who correctly calls this a "time bomb" think, this is not going to lead to the abolition of Obamacare. Never in history have government killed a bad idea; they just keep tinkering with it until one day they discover some 
unobtainium that shut people up, and then call it a success (see Social Security, Medicare, Barney Frank). 

The Evil RKOF in me enjoys the thought of forthcoming agonizing by people (useful idiots) who voted for this government, and will now be reduced by it to government serfdom, or, if they're lucky, hated pig overseers.  The Good Rodge weeps for all Americans.

Obama orders that he not be made fun of

Women if Foxholes

Res Ipsa Loquitor No Country For Old Men

  • 1991 Congress authorizes women to fly in combat missions.
  • 1993 Congress authorizes women to serve on combat ships.
  • 1998 For the first time, women fighter pilots fly combat missions off aircraft carrier in Operation Desert Fox, Iraq.
  • 2013 Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lifts a longstanding ban on women serving in combat,
Rush: We have Joe Geezer from Omaha.  Are you there Joe?
Joe G. Yes, but I sure had to wait a long time.
Rush: Reminded you of your army days didn't it?  I understand you served  during WWII. 
Joe G. (Laughs) Yes. Under Patton. I'm 76 years old Rush, but I still hate the waiting.
Rush:What do you think about  allowing women to serve as combatants?
Joe G.. Why do they want to?  Hell, most men try like hell to stay out of war zones.  I think it's a mistake to put women in a foxhole with men..
Rush: Well, so far that hasn't happened, but you know it's coming; but what's your problem with it?
Joe G.:  Rush, if there was a women in my foxhole, I'm afraid I'd probably rape her, and so would damn near all the men I know..
Rush: Speechless..  (ca1990 anecdotal -memory)

Res Ipsa Loquitor As I move along into my dotage,  the male machismo thing isn't nearly as prominent as it once was.  And Lord knows that I've applauded  the women soljers I've known, or heard about on this Blog for their patriotism, passion, and ability (mostly) to think straighter than their civilian counterparts.  But back around that time (1991)Joe Geezer called Rush, and perhaps triggered by it,  I got into a discussion with my friend Banning.  He was a Vietnam veteran Naval officer w/four daughters, and more amenable to women serving on the front lines than I.  He did, oddly enough)  agree that James Webb was spot-on with "Women Can't Fight")

Banning asked me why I was so adverse to it.  I answered, "Because there's no woman I can't beat the crap out of. "   He thought it a silly response, and that was the end of that.  But there was a lot going on in that answer, and I suspect if you're ever going to understand what, you already do. .

As a veteran of incessant playground wars during my Chicago school days, I was stating a lesson that I think many anthropologists might agree with.  In order to lead, you have to be recognized as being at least as physically tough as the men you lead. You have to have reached that point where fighting you just isn't worth it.

What started all this today, was cowardly leftist turd Leon Panetta— installed as Sec/Defense by Barry O (which says it all)— breaking down the last feminist barrier to front line combat.  He did it as he walked out the door, and thus won't have to deal with it. 

I know what you're saying, "But Rodge, times are different.  Men don't think like that anymore."

I know.
