My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
It may not be Geekritique’s Star Trek but I know it looks like my kind of Star Trek. JJ Abrams is not meant to recreate series but reimagine them. And from what the trailer shows he’s doing that brilliantly.
I have not seen a party this fractured since 1968. The Democrats in that year were all over the place and with the tragic death of Bobby Kennedy their path to the White House was doomed. In this case, this is seemingly a self inflicted wound by members of the Republican party. AVB
He’s cleverly taking pages out of both Mussolini and Franco’s playbook prior to World War 2. And his populist message although coming from a billionaire is catching on. I think it’s time for us to take him seriously and mount an assault to his becoming President. AVB
And, by the way, Mr Trump says that he will have customs officials ask whether or not someone is Muslim as they come in. If they say they are Muslim they will be sent back. Do you really believe that a terrorist hell bent on doing harm to this country will not lie when entering our borders? AVB
This is the greatest fear of the mainstream GOP. A newly released internal memo shows that major donors are planning to not funds the presidential campaign and moved their monies into defending the Senate if Trump becomes the nominee. This of course can only be good news for Hillary Clinton. I’m with her. AVB
Like any very creative person, George Lucas can be an odd duck. I remember back in the 90s he was interviewed by Katie Couric. It was right after the last Star Wars movie has come out. She asked him that if someone paid him a billion dollars would he make another Star Wars movie. He answered that he was not Star Trek. I thought that was not just a stupid answer but offensive too many of the fans of Star Trek and Star Wars. So is answer here is typical George Lucas. I have tickets to go see the movie on December 21st at the El Capitan which has been redone by Disney for the showing of the Star Wars, the force awakens and I will report back on my opinion of the movie.

Well, Fox News has a line in the sand regarding President Obama. Thank goodness! I have said this before, anyone who’s been a great president Obama denigrates all the presidents before him and hold the president after him. He is sitting in the greatest office in our land and for that he needs to be respected even by Fox news commentators. AVB
