Jean Chrétien is a knob
One of the
unrealised fantasties of certain anti-american blubberpots was that one
day the fearsome Soviet military would attack and teach those darned arrogant
americans a lesson. Well as this
fascinating essay argues, the soviet military wasn't all it was cracked
up to be. (Link via Pejman)
I can hear
it now: screeching about western cultural imperialism (traced to the USA
of course) and how the taxpayers of the west have a moral duty to support
Dingbat Melbourne academic Janet McCalman offers a seriously confused article in The Age, throwing in a random array of subject matter to say the days of evil individual rights are over, and we must concentrate on the wonders of communism.
Ask the North Koreans honey, they've been trying it out for a while.
To start off, she trots out a rather hazy argument where she says we're not to blame for climate change, but it's all our fault anyway.
Ah, that's it. It's modern technology that is costing us so dear. We've all seen just how well "the natural method" works in preventing disasters in developing countries.
She then blabs on about the ecological horrors of big cities. Then - naturally - she switches tack and starts blubbing about the evilness of the coalition.
Talk about a confused agenda: Non-man-made environmental problems, Peter Costello's clothes, the sale of a telecommunications company and urban poverty. It's kinda hard to see exactly what point she is trying to make overall, apart from maybe "why do you keep voting for the coalition?? We know better than you and you never listen to us!! Can't you see we're all going to hell in a handbasket?!?!?"
She's gonna write some great stuff when she's out of loser-therapy I'm sure. The world has "moved on" from individual freedoms, and now we must go back to those wonderful progressive ideologies which resulted in tens of millions of deaths from communist terror, and untold environmental damage from those same, enlightened, non-capitalist folk.
that it keeps getting voted back into office. I guess not everyone has
the same nostalgia for 18% interest rates, double-digit unemployment and
"white people are evil" Labor social policy.
Paul Wright has blessed us with a kick-ass piece on cultural relativism and the snivelling hypocrisy of the wretched "we have a lot to learn from the UN & the third world" crowd.
buy this man a beer.
Two years ago I purchased the DVD of Francis Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula. I had fond memories of it from when I watched it at the cinema in 1992, and a viewing on video a few months later.
Last night I finally got around to watching the DVD, and lordy, what a kick in the bollocks. Take out the awesome production design, pretty costumes and cinematography, and you're left with a howling, incoherent mess.
Keanu Reeves gives arguably the worst acting performance I've ever seen in a big studio pic. Everyone else acts like a shopfloor dummy, except for Anthony Hopkins who spends most of his time yelling incoherently as screaming winds blow around him. Character development is non-existent, the screenplay fails completely to convey the simple-but-powerful Dracula storyline. Oldman & Ryder have zero chemistry as the tragic couple. Ryder is, well, awful.
I still reckon
Oldman's Count Drac is pretty damned good, even if a lot of his dialogue
is unintelligible, though this was a problem for a lot of people in the
movie: so much of the dialogue is incoherent yelling or incoherent mumbling.
Somebody please give these geese some diction lessons and teach Coppola
some basics in recording dialogue so that it can actually be understood.

I hope you eventually found what you were looking for.
Our own Taliban cheerleader Amir Butler asks.....
Watched the DVD of Black Hawk Down on my home cinema giant-screen thingy tonight. Spectacular as a stand-alone action movie, a huge let-down as a cinematic telling of an amazing story.
screenplay, woeful inaccuracies, sloppy direction. Like the film of The
Perfect Storm, they made a great true story feel like stock Hollywood
fiction. It could have been so much more. Damn :(
Some islamopenis sez the USA will be an islamic nation one day. What a fruitcake. Must be one of Amir Butler's mates.
a deluded follower.....
is back...sorta. He went missing for a few months, but he's returned to
making semi-regular updates, all of which kick-ass big time. I've also
restored him to the links list. This guy must have a backlog of fatwas
piling up against his name......
Check out this sorry-ass Canadian wanker and his anti-USA rant.
Capital Territory has just become the first place in Australia to remove
abortion from the criminal code. A glorious defeat for the god-squadders.
Miranda Devine is a great example of why I'd never call myself a conservative. Conservatives spend their existence blithering from one "moral crisis" to the next, mumbling about the undermining of traditional values and generally making a mockery of their usual spiel about individual liberty & responsibility.
Her column in today's Sydney Morning Herald is classic jesus-freak gay-bashing paranoia, worthy of Fred Nile: "Gays write death notice for marriage". Nice suggestive title huh? (kinda evocative of all those Gypsies are takin' our horses and Them niggers are takin our women headlines, back in the good family-values christian days)
Miranda gets tangled up in some severely tortured logic and moralist hooey. She's outraged - for example - that the New York Times wedding page now has now carries notices of homosexual unions. The Horror!!!!
Um, no it doesn't stupid. The equivalent would be to shows hetero/homo deaths on the same page, which of course they already do. And whaddaya know, society didn't collapse as a result.
Miranda then develops this grotesque thesis;
Go fuck yourself, Eva Braun. Same-sex marriage is about two people in love being able to enjoy the same official union as a heterosexual couple. And where is this gay anti-hetero marriage movement? Who are its spokespeople? Where are their 95 theses nailed to the oh-so-vulnerable icon of hetereosexuality? Come on Miranda, give us some proof to back up your Vatican rhetoric.
And who exactly are these people who are "disgusted" by the institution of marriage? Have you actually seen or heard any? Go on, give us a link to some writings by this great movement of hetero-destroying faggot pervert bastards.
Conspiracy theories worthy of Lyndon LaRouche. Non-existent plots by non-existent hetero-hating gays warriors to underline the "concept" of marriage...which any hetero couple is still free to practice by the way. Miranda seems to be Hugh Mackay's evil twin sister: ideologically opposed, but every bit as clueless.
Exactly how marriage would be "destroyed" isn't exactly outlined here. I'm surprised she hasn't slipped in a "please, wont somebody think of the children!!!" cry already.
Where does she get this shit? The Ku Klux Klan Guide to Families? OK Miranda, read this nice and slowly: "gays" aren't trying to destroy families or stop hetero marriages. As for kids, hasn't she been following the gay adoption debate? Miranda's Festival-of-Light waffling seems to be contradicting itself: gays apparently "reject" the union of marriage, and here she is complaining that gays now want to be married. Well, which is it you dumbass?
I also wonder what Miranda's position is on gay adoption? I have little doubt she'd be horrified by that too, even though it would blow her idiotic "gays reject families and kids" argument sky high. Not that we should expect any logical consistency from this moralistic tart.
I'll spare you the next three paragraphs of nauseating fag-bashing paranoia.
Miranda - if you're going to write this shit, you at least have an obligation to provide some evidence for your bizarre homophobic rants. You can start with explaining how someone else's marriage can possibly have anything to do with your marriage. Who cares what a gay couple does? What the fuck business is it of yours anyway, you self-righteous preaching bimbo? If your marriage is somehow undermined by what another couple does, then I'd argue you have some serious emotional problems which have nothing to do with some shadowy gay plot, and a lot more to do with a serious insecurity complex and probably some majority repressed sexual impulses.
Get a life.
