It's hard enough to translate a book into a movie

But if your goal is to stuff it full of as many liberal, PC, SJW messages as possible, you're just going to ruin it.  Which is why A Wrinkle In Time is A Waste Of Time.

A yellow brick backyard pathway and an otherworldly twister (neither from the book) presumably are attempts to evoke “The Wizard of Oz,” which is like slapping Ferrari decals on a 1971 Pinto. Also, forget about giving what should have been called “A Waste of Time” a pass because it might be good enough for kids. “A Wrinkle in Time” is so unconvincing, uninvolving and unlikeable that expecting even small children to enjoy it seems cruelly condescending.

The real title of this movie should have been "A SJW Message that Never Ends".

A female character known as the Happy Medium in the book is now male (Zach Galifianakis). Calvin’s abusive mother is now an abusive father. Meg’s father has been missing for four years instead of two. A character transforms into a flying green leaf-creature instead of a winged white centaur. Instead of taking place in an imposingly grim office building, an encounter with the evil “man with red eyes” (Michael Peña, known here simply as Red) takes place on a sunny, umbrella-crowded beach. 
The movie completely ignores L’Engle’s creepy description of the book’s main villain as an oversized, disembodied brain. Even the ending is altered — mild spoiler alert — by having Meg rely upon another character’s feelings toward her, instead of triumphing solely by expressing hers toward him.

I loved the book.  Shouldn't have been a shock there.  I hate seeing books turned into movies, because even the best movie can't capture everything that a book puts forth.  But I'll be passing on this disaster.  I have better things to do than be preached at by a hypocritical Hollywood hack.

Easter Ham

The Mrs. is allergic to nitrates, so we typically don't eat much ham at the Raging Casa.  Unless we make it ourself, which is a rather time consuming process.  But we figured what the hell, let's do this.  So we got a pork shoulder, rubbed it down with salt and spices, then set it in the fridge and just drained the liquid off every now and then.  Today it's going on the smoker for twelve hours or so.  Once that's been accomplished, we're going to cure it in wine for two weeks.  It's a cross between an old Italian method and a standard American method.

Bake it on Easter, and yum yum yum!

Muslim tries to rape woman in public bathroom

This little shitheel needs to be sent back to where ever he came from.  We don't need trash from other countries.

A 32-year-old Bloomington man is facing multiple charges after he reportedly hid in a women’s bathroom at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, then crawled into a stall in an attempt to sexually assault a woman.

A "Bloomington" man.  Riiiiiiiiight.

Asad Abu Mohamed of Bloomington is charged with third degree criminal sexual conduct, making terroristic threats and fourth degree assault of a school official.

"Bloomington" man?  Not a chance.  Just another Somali muslim doing what Somali muslims do no matter where they are in the world.

The woman immediately began kicking and screaming at Mohamed. She told police, he covered her mouth and told her he would kill her. The woman continued screaming and struggling with Mohammed. In the struggle, he ripped out her earring and pulled her hair. The woman told police she was convinced he was going to rape her. 
Bystanders nearby heard her screams and came to help. They found Mohamed choking the woman with one hand and smoking a glass pipe with his other hand. The woman was screaming and hitting Mohamed while her pants and underwear were down around her knees.

Let me repeat myself.  This is just another Somali muslim doing what Somali muslims do.  This is what they do in their country, and this is what they do in ours.

ISIS inspired teenager tries to blow up high school, National Media doesn't say a peep

I guess if you can't blame guns, then why report it?

(KUTV) — A juvenile was arrested Tuesday morning after a 'potentially' dangerous homemade device was found at Pine View High School on Monday. 
The juvenile was interviewed as a person of interest, police say.
During the interview with investigators, the suspect admitted to taking the American flag down and replacing it with an ISIS flag at Hurricane High School. 
The suspect also admitted to spray painting "ISIS IS COMI" on the school that same morning, police say.
Beware the dog that doesn't bark.

Does that mean that this brilliant liberal wants…
– women to be banned from entering school and college campuses? (Heh. A woman free zone. – GOC)– women to be banned from any establishment selling alcohol?
– women to be banned from polling places on election days (That would be the death of the Dimocrat Party – GOC)– women to be banned from any official government group meetings?(No women in Congress – GOC)– all women to be banned from all airports?
– you to have to pay a fee to the state before you can have a woman with you?
– some women to be banned outright simply because they look too scary?
– all women to be locked up at all times that they are not in use?
Hmmmm….
– Does she also think that all guys should have more than one?
– That all women should come with silencers?
– All women need to be cleaned and greased after each use, then put in a locked box?
Heh indeed!

When the Miami Herald is piling on Sheriff Israel....

You know it's gotta be bad.

Israel said that Peterson should have charged inside, confronted the gunman and killed him. Tough talk for the cameras, but several other deputies apparently did not go into the building, either. 
Peterson resigned and, speaking through his lawyer last week, defended his actions. He said that he was not a coward and that he thought the shots were coming from outside. 
Last week, the Herald obtained documents that show a BSO captain ordered deputies to form a perimeter, possibly after the shooting was over, and not telling them to rush into the building. This contradicts what Israel said was the protocol. 
No, what the videos would reveal are not “security plans,” as the sheriff claims. Rather they will reveal that there was probably confusion over the plan, or flawed communication of said plan. 
It’s obvious that, whatever the plan, it was hopelessly bungled that awful afternoon of Feb. 14. What in the world could the release of the video recordings possibly compromise now?


Scott Israel is a politically correct buffoon, not an actual, honest-to-god Sheriff, and his actions prove that out.  The longer the focus stays on the Parkland shooting, the more information comes out that makes every single level of government look bad.  Right now this douche-canoe is probably wishing he'd never pushed those kids into the lime-light and gave them their DNC talking points, because the more those twerps run around insulting gun owners, the longer people look at the Parkland shooting and wonder why, if the government failed at every level, they should give up their guns for the "protection" provided by this buffoon and the flaming jack-asses at the FBI.

Tear it down and start over.

Fire the fuckers, then fire the fuckers who enabled the fuckers.

FBI agent Peter Strzok was told of a possible breach into the Hillary Clinton's homebrewed server but didn't do anything about it. What ARE they doing at the FBI? "What would you say you do here?" They aren't following up on tips of a possible school shooter, they aren't following up on foreign hacking of the Secretary of State's illegal email server, so what?

At this point, I wouldn't trust the FBI to find anything, since they're more concerned about a fake story contained in a dossier funded by Clinton and concocted out of this air.

Hey Dave, why does modern Country Music stink like the corpse of a camel rotting on a trash-heap in Iraq in July?

Take a look at who's running it.

Country Music executives Jason Owen and Whitney Pastorek led a push to oust former Gov. Mike Huckabee from the Country Music Association Foundation board of directors, citing his support for the National Rifle Association and his views on LGBT issues. Huckabee, now a TV host, was out within a day of his appointment to the board.

Jason Owen is a mincing faggot who hates Christians, and Whitney Pastorek is a Hillary-voting, pro-abortion, anti-gun Democrat.  The reason that modern country music has sunk down into a cesspool of bullshit and mediocrity is because the same people who push pop music on the public are pushing new country.

And yeah, I'm done being nice to gays who try to quash Christianity.  Sorry, no, we're on opposite sides of the spectrum.  Funny how I don't see that kind of rage and hatred directed at Muslims.  Odd that. 

No, it's not odd.  Both of those groups hate Western, Christian civilization.

As for modern country music, with it's electronic drum beats, auto-tuning, dance-club bass and fancy-looking "singers" who can't actually sing?  Piss on 'em.  There are good musicians out there.  I'll listen to THEM, and not give the music companies my business.

Democrats only win the elections they can steal

And that's why they're fighting against Voter ID so hard.  Because if voters actually had to prove they were US citizens, the Democrats would lose nationwide.

More than 100,000 noncitizens are registered to vote in Pennsylvania alone, according to testimony submitted Monday in a lawsuit demanding the state come clean about the extent of its problems. 
The Public Interest Legal Foundation, which has identified similar noncitizen voting problems in studies of Virginia and New Jersey, said Pennsylvania officials have admitted noncitizens have been registering and voting in the state “for decades.” 
But state officials have stonewalled PILF requests for access to the data that could expose the problem, the group says in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Harrisburg.

Voter ID is a must.  Otherwise, any Juan, Viktor or Habib can vote to get a bigger slice of our pie delivered to their door, free for them.  But we always end up paying the cost.  Which is why California is paying out BILLIONS of dollars in welfare and other benefits to illegal aliens.

Italy tells the EU to pound sand

I don't know how that translates in Italian.

Yesterday, when we looked at the final polling going into the Italian elections, it appeared that the coalition of right-wing parties seeking to curb forced migration would take roughly a combined 32 to 35 percent of the vote. As it turns out, they did even better, coming in with an estimated 37%. This is still short of a single-party majority, but impossible to ignore. It adds up to what is likely 123 seats in the lower house of the legislature where they previously held 22. 

Apparently, Italians are getting tired of Diversity coming into their house, stealing their food, trashing their property and raping their kids.  Who woulda thunk it?

Watch the Oscars? Fuck no.

I don't need to be lectured by a bunch of hypocritical, amoral shitstains on America's under-oos.  Besides, when Gary Oldman thanks America during his Oscar speech and the crowd sits on their hands, they can all get fucked.  I don't need to question their patriotism.  THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY OF THAT VIRTUE.  Really, they don't have ANY virtues, so it's not a big shock.

With very few exceptions, the vast majority of Hollywood could all disappear tomorrow, and the world would be better off.
