Airplane

Airplane! (titled Flying High! in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, and the Philippines; L’aereo più pazzo del mondo in Italy) is a 1980 American satirical comedy film directed and written by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker and released by Paramount Pictures.

It stars Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty and features Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Lorna Patterson.

The film is a parody of the disaster film genre, particularly the 1957 Paramount film Zero Hour!, which it follows fairly closely, with superficial changes. For example, Ted Striker was Ted Stryker in the older film. The film is known for its use of absurd and fast-paced slapstick comedy, including visual and verbal puns and gags.

Airplane! was a financial success, grossing over US$83 million in North America alone, against a budget of just $3.5 million.

Euro ‘Is A Bloody Doomsday Machine,’ Mark Blythe, Brown University, Economics Professor Says

Via: Huffington Post

The unthinkable suddenly looks possible.

Bankers, governments and investors are preparing for Greece to stop using the euro as its currency, a move that could spread turmoil throughout the global financial system.

The worst case envisions governments defaulting on their debts, a run on European banks and a worldwide credit crunch reminiscent of the financial crisis in the fall of 2008.

A Greek election on Sunday will determine whether it happens. Syriza, a party opposed to the restrictions placed on Greece in exchange for a bailout from European neighbors, could do well.

If Syriza gains power and rejects the terms of the bailout, Greece could lose its lifeline, default on its debt and decide that it must print its own currency, the drachma, to stay afloat.

No one is sure how that would work because there is no mechanism in the European Union charter for a country’s leaving the euro. In the meantime, banks and investors have sketched out the ripple effects.

They think the path of a full-blown crisis would start in Greece, quickly move to the rest of Europe and then hit the U.S. Stocks and oil would plunge, the euro would sink against the U.S. dollar, and big banks would suffer losses on complex trades.

personal thought:

If it turns not to be Greece; then it will be Spain, or Italy, or Portugal, or . . .

“vagina! – vagina! – vagina!”

Via: Dependable Renegade

Michigan Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown from speaking on the floor Thursday after she ended thusly: “Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no,'”.

It seems that the GOP’s delicate sensibilities were offended by the V-word:

“What she said was offensive,” said Rep.  Mike Callton, R-Nashville. “It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.”

Mixed company being people with one of them v-words?

Yes.

John McCain (R-AZ) – ‘GOP Genius of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

WOODRUFF: This question of campaign money, highlighted today by the announcement that there’s a huge amount of money coming in from one donor in the state of Nevada.

MCCAIN: Mmmm hmmm. Mr. Adeleson, who gave large amounts of money to the Gingrich campaign and much of Mr. Adeleson’s casino profits, that go to him, come from this casino in Macau.

WOODRUFF: Which says what?

MCCAIN: This which says that obviously, maybe in a round-about way, FOREIGN MONEY is coming into an American campaign, political campaigns.

WOODRUFF: Because of the profits that the casinos in Macau…

MCCAIN: ‘Yes, that is a great deal of money. And, again, we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization that Teddy Roosevelt had that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and that corporations are not people. That’s why we have different laws that govern corporations than govern individual citizens.

And so to say that corporations are people, again, flies in the face of all the traditional Supreme Court decisions that we have made — that have been made in the past.’

Not that it will do any good, but I think perhaps, McCain needs to have a ‘little talk’ with Romney; mmmm hmmm.

Herman ‘HOLD the SAUSAGE, Baby!’ Cain

Via: Dependable Renegade

Poet laureate and teabagger extraordinaire Herman Cain recently drafted this lyrical masterpiece:

‘999 9th Street‘ (By Herman Cain)

999 9th street is the place to be. The Renaissance hotel in Washington, D.C.

A major conference there was meant to be. Where Mr. 999 is scheduled to speak.

Some will say, it is just pure luck. Others will say, it’s for a few bucks.

To heck with the skeptics who don’t have a plan. Because 999 has captivated the Land.

So jeer if you will the 999 man. Soon it will become, the law of the Land.

“He’s Baaack”

I tried my hand at re-working it:

Nein Nein Nein 9th Street’ (Not by Herman Cain)

Nein, nein, nein! is what the fräuleins say to me. At the Renaissance hotel in Washington, D.C.

I met some fine ladies, so slim and sleek. That’s when I turned on my special double-speak.

Some will say, it is just pure luck. But here they have hourly rates, for a quick fuck.

To heck with the bitches that don’t fall for my plan. They don’t know what they’re missin, I’m the pizza man.

Even when you slap me, I still tell you you’re hot. What’s the matter baby? Do you want this job or not?

“He’s Baaack”

Reporter Interrupts, Heckles President During Remarks

Via: Huffington Post

President Obama was heckled by a reporter during his immigration remarks on Friday.

Obama announced that the Department of Homeland Security will stop deportations and grant work permits for students who meet certain requirements. The policy change will apply to those who arrived in the U.S. before turning 16, who have been in the country for at least five years, and are under the age of 30.

During his remarks, Obama suddenly addressed a person in the crowd, telling him that he was not yet taking questions. “Excuse me, sir, it’s not time for questions, sir, Obama said. “Not while I’m speaking.”

~

At the end of his speech, Obama referred back to the person who interrupted him. “And the answer to your question is sir, and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question, is this is the right thing to do for the American people…I didn’t ask for an argument. I’m answering your question,” he said, speaking over the man’s protests. “It is the right thing to do for the American people.”

The camera flashed to a man in a suit wearing sunglasses. He was quickly identified as The Daily Caller’s Neil Munro, who wrote about the news of Obama’s announcement on Friday.

~

ABC’s Diane Sawyer, who was anchoring the network’s breaking news coverage with George Stephanopoulos, described the man who interrupted Obama as someone who was “clearly considered a heckler.”

Former George W. Bush spokesman Tony Fratto tweeted, “Reporters don’t interrupt presidential statements. Period. @NeilMunroDC SHOULD BE BANNED from WH. #fb.”
