I hope I get to see this movie

Big Hollywood (Ben Howe): ‘The Undefeated’ Review: A Profoundly Important Game-changer (Especially For Me)

I've been an admirer of Sarah Palin since she was named John McCain's running mate in 2008. She caused me to give money to the flagging Republican ticket, and probably caused me to vote in that election. It was NOT John McCain. I have followed her career after she was thrust into the spotlight of political battle, and I am impressed by what I've read, and what I've heard. This is not an idiot that is standing before us, as many have tried to portray her as. She had the support of her state, before our political and media "betters" decided to destroy her and her reputation. But they failed, mostly. The only part where they were successful was her public perception, and this movie is designed to educate people on that subject. It looks like it affected Ben very positively.

I hope many of my other online friends who are detractors of Mrs. Palin also see this movie. Nothing brings out the cockroaches like sunlight, and nothing corrects misconceptions better than the truth. If it is a bunch of bunk, I will listen, and you can change my mind. But I don't think it will come to that, from the things that I have read.

Update: Ben's artcle is also at RedState, if you want to read some more comments.

Union curbs rescue a WI school district

Hat tip to Jazz at UP.

The WI ban on collective bargaining ban for benefits is not working as the Dems predicted:

The Kaukauna School District, in the Fox River Valley of Wisconsin near Appleton, has about 4,200 students and about 400 employees. It has struggled in recent times and this year faced a deficit of $400,000. But after the law went into effect, at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, school officials put in place new policies they estimate will turn that $400,000 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus. And it’s all because of the very provisions that union leaders predicted would be disastrous.

Washington Examiner (Byron York): Union curbs rescue a Wisconsin school district

Still claiming this is a bad thing?

Glenn Beck goes to Bryant Park

Wow, Glenn Beck was telling a story about going to Bryant Park at his daughter's invitation to see a movie, and people kicked wine on his wife. The crowd clapped and cheered when he got up to leave after the movie got over. Yelling about hating conservatives at him, and his wife.

Guess New York people truly are assholes.

Would the same people be treated the same way at a Tea Party event? I don't think so.

Circle flies

A cowboy from Texas attended a social function where Barack Obama was trying to gather support for his Health Plan. When Obama discovered the cowboy was from President Bush's home area, he started to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single syllable words.

As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle flies?"

Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."

"Well, sir," the cowboy replies, "Circle flies hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling. But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's ass?"

"No, sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of this country to call their president a horse's ass."

"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.

After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to fool them flies, though."

Great breakdown of Michele Bachmann's positions on issues

I got this from the comments section at Ace of Spades (Headlines thread). It's a great breakdown of her positions on Cap and Trade, Gun Control, small government, taxes, border control, abortion, and others. It's from Vic, and I hope he doesn't mind me posting it as an extra here.

Take a look below the fold, it's long, but broken out nicely.

Thanks Vic!

Muslim Mentality

I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.

This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.

We supplied all the needed Homografts for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza . She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.
One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt.

She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where they saved her life.

It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her.

This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the Land of Israel. It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational conflict or rather a war between civilization & barbarism.

I have never written before asking to please forward onwards, so that as many as possible can understand radical Islam and what awaits the world if it is not stopped.

Dr Arieh Eldad

Verified at snopes as true. Except for the "burned by the family" part, she was injured in a gas tank explosion. Still, talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
