SNL takes on Public Employees

It's not as funny as it is accurate. Or maybe it's not funny because it's accurate. Except the DMV's talent portion. Funny. Scary. Real. Okay, not so funny anymore.

Trailer: Beastly

Because I'm a girl. Because I love the story of Beauty and the Beast. Because I generally find pretty boys unattractive. Because substance matters. Because I have a free movie pass. I might actually go to the theater to see this one.

Then again, there's always Redbox in a year or two.

Veridian Dynamics: When Presidents Talk

I just started watching Better Off Ted. And now I find out it's canceled. Did I do that?

And we have a President with the mouth of an energizer bunny, he just keeps talking...and talking...and talking...and talking...and...

Quote Them: the original firestarter

"We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against."
Fire Chief Beatty,
think Rachel Maddow but with a cigarette lighter

PS Spreading the wealth. Liberalism. Economic equality. None of it is new. This has been a sickness for generations. And in our antagonist Chief Beatty, the warped thought process took the shape of a book burner in 1951's "Fahrenheit 451" by the hand of Ray Bradbury.

Quote Them: that legendary castaway

"I learned to look more upon the bright side of my condition and less upon the dark side; and to consider that I enjoyed rather than what I wanted; and this gave me sometimes such secret comforts that I cannot express them; and which I take notice of here, to put those discontented people in mind of it who cannot enjoy comfortably what God has given them because they see and covet something that He has not given them. All our discontents about what we want appeared to me to spring from the want of thankfulness for what we have."

Russian's chant "Christ is Risen" at Soccer Game

In 50 years, no one has seen this happen at a Russian soccer game. I'm not sure as Americans, we've seen it either.

During an Easter soccer match at Moscow Lokomotiv stadium, thousands began changing "Christ is Risen!", with the fans of the opposing team responding, "Truly He is Risen!". It's a 16-second video. And it'll give you chills.

Amazing. Worship can happen anywhere. It should be happening everywhere. Someday, as scripture tell us, it will. I hope we don't wait until then.

Quote them: Founding Father style

"Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government."

James Madison

PS Greedy, selfish founding fathers. In all their wisdom to establish a system that has sustained and maintained individual freedom like no other place or time in the world, they just didn't get it. How unEuropean of them. True compassion is making a population dependent on a government that cares. Like a mommy. Or a thumb to suck.
