Senator Elizabeth Warren was campaigning for president in Iowa where she rolled out her signature proposal she called Universal Child Care. Believe it or not, it's been tried before. Baby Boomers had universal child care when we were growing up in the Fifties, it was called parents.

Quote du jour

We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.

Shazam! - A Movie Review, Sort Of


Shazam! as a superhero origin story is simply magical! No, really, I mean his origin is magical...like Harry Potter's. He's not the strange visitor from another planet, no one gave him a lantern powered ring, and he wasn't bitten by a radioactive anything. Billy Batson is an orphan, who wants nothing more in life than to find his real mom. Even if it means calling in an occasional false police report. Young Billy is a bit of a troublemaker.

Family is a theme that runs through the film. The stern father and sterner grandfather of the kid who turns into a super villain, the foster parents and foster kids that young 14 year old Billy finds himself living among. An exploration of what family really means.

Billy Batson made his first appearance in 1939 as the boy who uttered a magic word to turn himself into "Captain Marvel". The magic word Shazam was an acronym for

The wisdom of Solomon

The Strength of Hercules

The stamina of Atlas

The power of Zeus

The invulnerability or courage of Achilles

And the speed of Mercury

We we have an admixture of magic and mythology here, too. And theology. Billy was supposed to acquire the wisdom of Solomon as he fought against the embodiment of the Seven Deadly Sins. The element of theology is downplayed in the movie. The foster kids give thanks before every meal, but it isn't exactly clear who they're thanking. Solomon's wisdom is clearly non-existent, as the wizard picks a delinquent 14 year old boy to be his champion, whereas I might have picked a police detective or a Navy SEAL. The fourteen year old exhibited all the wisdom...of a fourteen year old!

In many ways, Shazam! is the movie you would have had in "Big", if the Tom Hanks character had told the magic fortune teller "I want to be Superman!" There's even a small homage to Big as Shazam, nee Captain Marvel, fights the villain in a toy store.

Zachary Levi does a yeoman's job as the "Big" superhero, expressing childlike wonder at all the new and wonderful things he is able to do, yet reluctant when called upon to fight real evil. Shazam is a good solid popcorn movie, suitable for most children and some adults. It's entertaining, without being preachy about anything (a rarity in today's atmosphere). I don't remember a single call to save the planet over global warming, or saving the whales or the rainforests.

It's a comic book movie. No enduring truths. No stirring calls to action. Just sit your behind in the seat, or rent the Blu-ray, and absorb a little semi-mindless fantasy for an hour or so. I'd give it three out of five stars.

"This country has racism ingrained in its bones. The original sin of this country is slavery. That started from the beginning of our DNA."
- David Burstein


Editor: Countries don't have "bones". People sin, countries do not. Countries don't have DNA. In order to impute some sense of national guilt, liberals must use false analogies to make their implausible arguments somewhat plausible.

Ah, Earth Day...the Irony!


Monday April 22nd. was Earth Day. A day dedicated to saving the planet through energy conservation and...recycling!

STOCKTON — A thick, billowy plume of black smoke visible for miles scarred an otherwise pristine blue sky over the Port of Stockton on Monday afternoon, caused by a stubborn, wind-blown fire at... a recycling center.

...The blaze was fueled mostly by pallets of paper, plastics and other recyclables.

Forget your carbon offsets! Ain't no thicker, blacker smoke than a good plastic fire. Burning tires come close, if you have enough of them, but the irony of filling a pristine blue sky with thick black smoke from recyclables on Earth Day was just too precious not to take note of! And, lest we forget, April 22nd. is also Vladimir Lenin's birthday!

Happy Earth Day from Stockton, California! Happy belated birthday, Vlad!

"Economic inequality" is a funny thing. When I was born, there was economic inequality between me and my parents. For decades they were far wealthier than I, although their income was quite modest.
When they passed, after a modest inheritance, we still weren't economic equals.

Ashley was our Friday Night Babe January 9th, 2009, and one time candidate for the Senate, from the great state of Kentucky. If the phrase "Nuttier than squirrel poop" came up in regards to her candidacy, we apologize for the accuracy.

Ashley is currently boycotting the state of Georgia for their stance on their "Heartbeat abortion" ban.
