Matt Damon’s troubled anti-frack film By PHELIM MCALEER

a good article on the anti-fracking movement & some of the propaganda.

It's The Bourne Pontification, silly, and it is the sequel to "The Green Zone".

If bubba thinks Obama did the best possible job with the economy he inherited, someone should follow up and ask bubba if he or Hillary could have done better.

--Adobe Revoking Compromised Code-Signing Certificate (September 27, 2012) Adobe is revoking a cryptographic key that has been compromised by attackers to authenticate malware. The hackers managed to gain access to a build server used to develop Adobe software that in turn had access to the Adobe code-signing infrastructure. A forensic investigation determined that the attackers managed to use their access to sign two samples of malware. According to an Adobe blog post, the company is "proceeding with plans to revoke the certificate and publish updates for existing Adobe software signed using the impacted certificate."

Matt Damon did some of his best work in "Team America: World Police". Unfortunately he thinks he is more like his genius character in good will hunting. Most of these actors have minimal education or smarts, but they believe there real experience is based on the characters they play on screen. Unfortunately, many Americans believe that as well.

This little turd and his twin twit Decaprio, and the legion of dweebs and squirts they've spawned, would have been relegated to, at best, bit part punks in B movies in the Hollywood of yesteryear.

Goofy looking little shrimps without discernible talent, personality or even eccentricities to make them even slightly interesting ala Cagney, who was also a bit of a goofy looking shrimp but who had more talent, personality and eccentricities than an army of the mush-pated little polemicists who make it in the movies these days.

They're not even anti heroes; they have no charge at all, positive or negative.
Hollywood's current galaxy of stars is now made up almost entirely of neutrinos.

Lappy:

He didn't say Obama did the best possible job.

He said:

"Listen to me, now. ::finger wag:: No president — no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years."

Clinton left himself room to say even he could have repaired only 95% of it -- without committing in the least to saying how much of it Obama repaired.

Lesley U where his mom taught Elementary Ed IIRC is a major player in bringing back whole word sight reading. It's a political issue and he thus grew up around an environment of education as a political weapon. Deborah Meier who has comparable views to Maxine Greene even referred today to her colleague Mike Klonsky. That would be the Maoist himself. Another person I have seen her call a colleague is Damon's mom.

Let's just say he was raised to believe in democracy and social justice. And he loves to push Howard Zinn even apart from gwh. He probably doesn't know any better.

Are they nuts? I thought teaching reading by rote went the way of the 8 track tape. I learned phonetically as did my son. His sister, 4 years younger, was caught in the rote and new math experiment. I discovered that as an 8th grader, she was borderline illiterate. We worked that entire Summer with flash cards and phonetics and I remember her saying, "reading is so much easier your way Mom."

This. Matt Dumbass and his buddy Ben Affleck probably don't hit double digits when you sum their IQs. At least Ben was well cast as an idiot in Chasing Amy; it ruined the second half of the movie but that's at least partially due to fatassed Kevin Smith's inability to end films effectively.

OT since it's Friday,

So I heard that Republicans are supposed to like Sam Adams beer and, being a good Republican, I bought some. It's the Whitewater IPA, which is supposed to be a cross between a wit or white ale (like Blue Moon or Hoegaarden) and an IPA.

Not too bad. But the slim bottle style is too small to fit in my Republican redneck koozies.

I love craft beer, but somehow Sam Adams is not my favorite. Sort of a transitional beer, between the bland mass marketed and the more individualist craft beers. Hate Blue Moon; it's made by Coors and is not a craft beer. There are a few faux craft beers out there. If you are going to drink mass market beer, then just drink a Coors or Bud, don't buy fake with food coloring added to give you the impression that something was done specially.

Captain Hate

Sam Adams has some good beers but they're dangerously close to being too big to be really good at anything other than a few. For example, last year at about this time my buds and I got together to listen to music and drink Oktoberfests. Both Great Lakes Brewery and Shiner's of that type were better than Sam Adams. Don't get me wrong, there wasn't anything bad about the Sam Adams and I'd gladly have drank it instead of the macro crap of Bud, Miller, blah blah; it just wasn't very interesting compared to the others. Btw, at Beer Advocate the Sam Adams Whitewater (which they categorize as an American IPA) has almost the same numerical grade as the Oktoberfest.

What had been Checkpoint Charlie was still there with broken glass everywhere. I have written this before but Unter din Linden had a haunted feel after the wall came down and before any devt. You could still see remnants of WW2 bombings in the Museum facade.

Porchlight

I can be a beer snob or not, depending on my mood. Quite often an ice cold Lone Star or Modelo in a can is my brew of choice. I think Sam Adams does pretty well in the easy-to-find decent commercial beer department. Of course they're not going to compare to Joe Snob Microbrew from some craft brewery somewhere.

Thanks for the link to your post. I can't pretend to understand the details, but my daughter failed the 4th grade STAAR reading assessment twice. Still don't know how she did on the actual test last year because they haven't normed it yet. We might find out in January.

I found school easy, but my daughter is different. It's all uncharted waters for us. I don't think my parents thought about it much. I wish parents of "gifted and talented" kids would count their blessings and not bitch so much about how their kids aren't challenged. Challenge them yourself, damn it.

I wish parents of "gifted and talented" kids would count their blessings and not bitch so much about how their kids aren't challenged. Challenge them yourself, damn it.

School was so easy for me and I loved it so, it never occurred to me that my kids were different or could have problems. Then I started getting calls about behavior problems with my son. Little did I know at the beginning that he was hyper-active and it was complicated by an undiagnosed vision problem. We got his vision corrected and by 4th grade he seemed to be back on track, but if it hadn't been for his desire to stay eligible for sports with at least a B average, I doubt he would have graduated. My daughter, as noted above, was nearly illiterate when she graduated from 8th grade and I didn't realize it. Busy working Mom assuming no news is good news. We worked hours a day through the whole Summer and by the time she started high school, she was able to keep up.

In my opinion, the school just made managing the situations worse. First, they write kids off very early and those kids fall thru the cracks. Second, they do not really let parents know the problems the kids are exhibiting. My son's problem was relatively easy to correct with corrective lenses, but they wrote it off to a bad home life because his father was deployed so often and for such long stretches. Calling his jittery behavior acting out for attention when in reality, he was seeing everything as a double exposure and was constantly readjusting his position to try to bring things into focus. Teachers were telling me he was incorrigible and would never succeed and his coaches were telling me he was the star, the go-to guy, the most knowledgeable on the team, and had the patience to work with those less skilled and they wished they had a whole team just like him. It was like Jekyll and Hyde. My daughter was such a girly girl through and through, I never felt like I could relate that well as I was far more a tom boy growing up. Now she is the risk taker, nothing girly girl about her as she jumps on her Harley and rides down to the Keys or spends the weekend skydiving. I really don't relate to those activities. But, I got them graduated and both went on to college, my son, typically, in fits and spurts finally getting his degree at almost 40, my daughter coasting through in the theater and arts dept. and then ending up in school administration, the last place I would have ever expected for her.

rse, one of my listening buds (and former neighbor) is from Germany close to the Swiss border. He claims that micros in the US are better than German beers now. One of my favorite email correspondents is a guy with Cuban parents who lives in Berlin. He's probably the most intelligent lib I've ever interacted with; I call him the little commie son I never had. He's very open minded; in fact I'm pretty sure he likes Palin.

I loved the spontaneity with which the Berlin Wall fell; completely bloodless despite all the dire warnings. If there was one thing I'd have liked to have been to in my lifetime, I think that's it. I loved the jazz (for lack of a better term) that came out of divided Berlin when the wall was up. Although it was never stated as an underlying motif, it was a primal scream bitching about a country being divided. That asshole Ken Burns was completely missing that as he did his dipshit PBS sociology story about the obvious racial aspects of the music in the US when a much more contemporary story happened right in front of his Helen Keller eyes and ears.

Growing up, going to work, whenever co-workers were in a gossipy mood and some air-head female was the topic, I would usually say something like, "yeah, she's a real Zazu Pitts."

Romney's AVERAGE rate over the last 20 years has been 20.2%. This includes his years that were primarily investment and a few years where he was working with a salary at the high rates.

I don't think he has had anything other than dividend and investment income since 1999. He took no salary at the Olympics or as Governor.

41 Million Tea Party Supporters Set to Vote

The Tea Party is regularly ridiculed and declared "dead" by the mainstream press and their elitist allies in Washington and Hollywood. Not surprisingly, when Tea Partiers show up and rally by the thousands, they get all but ignored, while 30 Occupy Wall Street crazies in masks will always get wall-to-wall coverage and admiration. TV shows and movies take cheap shots at Tea Party conservatives, often linking them to murder-of-the-week cases on insipid crime procedurals or dismissing them as “birthers.” But a new Associated Press poll shows tea party supporters may have the last laugh in November.

The AP/GFK poll shows that 31% of likely voters consider themselves Tea Party supporters. With 131 million votes cast in the 2008 elections, that translates into an incredible voting bloc of 41 million Tea Party supporters waiting to cast ballots. These voters have already made their voices heard in Wisconsin earlier this year, as well as in Republican primaries in Texas and Nebraska.

That 31% of likely voters figure is greater than the 19% who described themselves as either strongly or somewhat liberal. Surprisingly, liberals have escaped media characterization as being a small, fringe-like group with little power or influence. At 19% of likely voters, self-described liberals would have a turnout of 25 million voters, some 16 million fewer voters than the Tea Party. (More)

Interesting point, Cap'n, but Sayles (whose work I have loved) got other things wrong in Matewan. For example when the mountain people were eyeing the Italian immigrants and their polenta suspiciously. I guess that was supposed to represent white xenophobia or something. But at that time Americans had been living on cornmeal mush at least since colonial times. Another lefty cultural assumption bites the dust.

Back from a round of golf with our new Pastor. Great young priest - spent 9 years in college and seminary - same as doctorate in theology. 10 years as a priest so far and just joined our parish. Loves to eat, have a few and can tell more "A priest, a rabbi...." Jokes I have never heard. Fun round.

Now to beer: There is no beer in the world I would rather drink (in fact the only beer I drink) than Belgian beer. There are over 600 different beers in Belgium and each of them come with their own special glass. My favorite is Morte Subite (Sudden Death). There is a famous bar in Brussels of the same name where you can get over 100 of those beers on tap. But my overall favorite Belgian beer is Chima (Blue label). My wife prefers a blond like Hoogarten in the summer or a Duvel which is an Antwerp beer or the even more popular, pedestrian Antwerp beer de Koninick which if you really want to impress the locals is to order it as a bolleke.
