Nobody Thinks to post this movie about the stereotype of a man who drives liberals crazy, is hard NOT to do.
I haven’t seen the movie yet, but this man, was given a job, and did it well. To blame the soldiers for war is beyond understanding, but liberals always do.
Nobody thanks Mr. Eastwood for bringing his life to the big screen.
You share the Nobody’s Fool Award of the week with Chris Kyle, who clearly, was a man of high integrity and great honor, and you can see that in this interview.
If you have seen it, go ahead and share. :)

Here we have the timeless sayings of the last great generation, whose common sense has long since left the planet.

If you haven’t seen the NEW race riot video, where in July, a black man who didn’t do what the police wanted, was ‘killed’ see it below.
Now, I don’t know about you, but there are literally thousands of video’s showing cops (if you watch COPS on TV you can see this every night) trying to arrest a black man, and the black person always knows there’s a camera and they ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS are screaming discrimination.
Or, “You’re hurting meeee! Oh!!! OH!!! OH!!…stop it!”
It’s so common we are all used to it, as I’m sure the cops are.
Nevertheless, the black guy had a heart attack, due to the ordeal. And the cop was just found innocent.
It was perfect timing— this verdict coming out now. After all, after black Friday, the black rioters sort of disappeared. New York Christmas shopping is coming up!
Whatever you many think about who did what wrong here….nobody was hitting this man. We have seen cops being ruthless in some tapes, and remember, that’s VERY rare.
This seemed more like a big mistake.
BUT…when the Mayor of New York insinuates that white people are at fault “going back decades” you can be rest assured the democratic party have marching orders…
RALLY THAT WAR! White people are to blame!
Nobody Wins.. when politicians try to incite riots…..especially the black people who are trying hard to abide by the law.
I might live near Ferguson, but I’m damn sure glad I don’t live in New York.
Sheriff Rick, has captured three cops…and one of the cop prisoners sweet talks the girl that is keeping his guard and then escapes, by knocking her out…and starts running. He is still in handcuffs (probably plastic ones because lord knows, in the Apocalypse Zombie world, real ones are hard to come by) and he’s running down the street, being chased by zombies.
Sheriff Rick, is a fair man, and a man who won’t hesitate to make decisions— jumps in a cop car, (left there by the prisoner) and follows the man…he turns on the speaker on in the cop car and tells him to STOP!
The prisoner keeps running, down the middle of the street, a habit that ALL actors and movie writers love to put into their scripts. You, the audience are yelling, “Don’t go down the middle of the street you moron! GET OFF THE ROAD!” But do they ever listen? No.
It never ends well….not in real life either. Nobody thinks they do this so that YOU, the audience will be screaming in your seats about the absurdity of running down the middle of the road, but then, that’s great entertainment to them. What can you do?
So, in this great scene— after ordering the man to stop about TRHEE times, Rick hits him hard with the car, and it’s sweet, because this guy get BAMMED down to the payment by the front fender and we are happy, because this guy is a lying scum.
Rick gets out of the car, and walks up to him and says, “ALL you had to do was stop. It didn’t have to be like this.” Or something to that effect…and the guy starts lying and trying to sweet talk Rick…and Rick…
Shoots him in the head.
More than likely they wrote this script long before Ferguson, but the timing of the episode was…perfect.
Now, if they would just stop obsessing about having to make Darrell gay,(Another macho guy ) or put a “gay” in the script we’d all be happier.
They can’t make him gay—it would affect the merchandizing BIG time.
Anyway, I only watch this show because it’s my husband favorite on TV…and it’s beating out Football.
Do you really think The Walking Dead fans even CARE that the Rams players came out in protest with their hands up?
Nope. We are ALL…Sheriff Rick Grimes. The new John Wayne…too much fun.
It’s been really interesting today, on all the talk shows, hearing the democrats trying to defend Obama’s actions last week on immigration. But one thing you have to give them credit for: they have got their talking points down pat:
1. Obama HAD to do something because the republicans have not done a thing on immigration. “Congress was unwilling to act.”
(Lie: They sent hundreds of bills to the Senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring them to the floor.)
2. Only 47 percent of the voters voted, therefore, the rest of the people WANTED Obama to do something and support this.
(Lie, Obama’s supporters stayed home because they don’t really care what he does, those are the 47percent that don’t PAY any taxes and are finding out Obama lied.)
3. Obama has the right to do what he did because other Presidents did the same.
(Lie, they worked with Congresses who had just passed immigration laws. Only Congress can pass immigration laws. Obama has no such power, and by his own admission.)
4. The republcians are only concerned about the border on the South, not protecting the other borders.
(This of course, borders on the absurd….it’s like saying you only care about the cancer in my brain not the stuffy nose I get from allergies.)
It’s been a real barf watching the slick enthusiasm of the democrats–mostly Hispanics, coming to the defense of Obama’s impeachable crime. Even Obama himself, has come out and claimed that—as President, he has the right to let five millions illegals stay in America. Poor things, just needed some help from him, and when everyone was outraged he said this:
“Well, my response is pass a bill. Congress has a responsibility to deal with these issues and there are some things that I can’t do on my own.”
What? You just did!
So, you have to ask yourself, how do democrats get by with such falsehoods, lies, deceptions, and the republicans don’t?
The answer is: Salemenship.
Let’s take a look at some examples of great salesmen;
Have you ever wondered WHY Microsoft cornered the market on its product? Was it just because it was so good? Take a look at the man who sold it:
Steve Ballmer. (Pretty funny) Steve could sell you a ticket to the gas chamber, that’s how good he is. (Wait…that’s sort of what Obama did….)
And then there’s THIS guy: Illinois Representative Luis Gutierrez, he was on Face the Nation this morning and he ran rings around his conservative opponent. Sure, ALL his arguments were BS, and full of holes, and his belief is that the illegals that are here, are as deserving to be here as you and I. And he sells that nonsense, like Steve Ballmer could sell you the next trip to the moon with China at the helm.
I kept yelling at the conservative guy to SAY something, REFUTE! Point out that the Canadians are not sending 100,000 unaccompanied kids into Idaho last time you looked…but no. He was totally boring, and Bob Schaeffer made sure Gutierrez had the most time. Here he admits that it’s all about getting democratic voters..and makes it all sound wonderful.
And last but not least is this guy, Joel Osteen, not your typical Evangelist. I listened to part of his sermon today, and boy, was it ever clever. He basically said, that you WILL get rich and famous, IF your parents had sacrificed to the church, and believed in God, and this devotion will be paid down to you. The more you GIVE money to the church, and he threw in other worthy causes, the more YOU will benefit in your own life. God WILL reward you.
(Never mind that millions living in poverty had religious parents too.)
Not a new story: As old as time itself: Give to us, and YOU will benefit. The oldest sales pitch around: Starting when Mohammed decided to steal the limelight of Jesus by claiming Allah choose HIM to be the new messiah, (Forget that guy Jesus) and everyone would get 72 virgins if they’d just come on over to Islam!
Joel is doing the very same thing that politicians do every day…and to see the ultimate pinnacle of hypocracy…in this video, Oprah Winfrey (the richest women in the US) chastised him for having a grand piano in his house, is about as hypocritical on her part, as it gets. As if..what she sells every day is worth money, and what he sells, is not.
So it’s all about salesmanship. And that’s what the Republicans lack. Ronald Reagan SOLD America. He sold the dreams of our fathers. It’s what we need.
Nobody Wishes we could all chip in and pay Steve Ballmer to sell America and her value to America again. (Steve? Are you bored with basketball yet?)
Do you think Jeb Bush OR Hillary Clinton would be able to sell themselves against a real salesmen with the talent of a Steve Ballmer or Joel Osteen?
And that’s been the complaint of everyone: The conservatives do NOT have that revolutionary voice, that strong voice that can SELL you freedom.
The only one that I can think of that would have matched the salesmanship of a Steve Ballmer, was Andrew Brietbart. Can you imagine if he were still alive?
And isn’t it fortuitous for the liberals that he’s no longer with us.
Is there another out there as courageous? Nobody Wonders.

I’ve ALWAYS admired people that do this to their yards, spending all that money to entertain the kids and the rest of us, and this one picked a hard song to light up, but he really did a fantastic job….
And by the way, does anybody besides me think that this song was about Freddie being upset that he gave some lover AIDS? (He died of AIDS, right?)
I’ve always wondered about that—-but don’t let me spoil the song, which is of course, a rock classic…right up there with Garth.

I just got this from my liberal friend, JR, who grew up in the fifties, and he just loves this video.
If you like classic CARS, and great old songs, you will enjoy this. I grew up with the Beatles…but I have had to sing every single one of those songs at one time or other when working on a job.
And believe it or not, Roy Orbison is hard to sing…even for a girl.
Be sure to catch the car whose trunk holds the top. (Any of you guys know who made that car?)
(Thanks to JR)
Many of you may think I’m older than Mt. Rushmore when I say that, after watching this video, I had to go get out my Shirley Temple movies.
I wanted to dose myself in bubble bath, and burn every single Halloween Princess costume ever made. I will never look at Snow White quite the same way ever again.
Uh…did you get that subliminal message too? Did you NOT want to do these young girls a real favor, and give them all shock treatments so that they can FORGET what they just did?
You have to laugh, at the very first comment: The last thing any of the feminists are— are strong. They can’t even buy their own birth control pills. They need Daddy Obama to give them a phone, food stamps, and permission to ask for a raise.
I hate to tell the liberal feminists their own history, but guess what? Your feminist movement REALLY backfired girls. While good men were going to the moon, you were fighting for the right to get nude, and have stoned sex in the mud at Woodstock.
Congratulations! You won! We now no longer have a space program, but we have little girls that will grow up to run political campaigns, and one IS just about to neuter the country forever.
We can now ride bikes with thongs on.
We see more sex and gore coming out of Hollywood and now our teachers can talk about sex to our children—it’s beyond a sexual revolution…it’s the party at the bottom of Mt. Sinai on steroids. But… Guess what? You played RIGHT into the boy’s hands, you stupid morons.
You’ve come a long way baby.
What’s that I hear you saying? Men shouldn’t treat you like sluts? It’s not fair that they look at your boobs and ass?
But you want to look like Miley Cyrus, sooooo…tell me how that fits into reality again?
We just heard that the women are feeling scared in America. Obama isn’t ‘protecting ‘ THEM!
I’m sorry. You didn’t have a father to protect you? And WHY is that? (Be thankful you were born.)
So, the sign of a true feminist is one who enables her serial rapist husband to continue his sexual appetite though-out their marriage. That’s what Hillary did. A real feminist would have left him—WAY back in Arkansas.
But it doesn’t matter, Hillary I’ve heard can really cuss.
The most important point we should get out of this video is that it shows us just how culturally low the whole democratic party really is: They truly are: Classless.
Mark Stein said it perfectly last week…You can’t have a conservative government with a liberal culture.
In other words, even if the government is flooded with conservatives, you will still see Bayonne flapping her ‘ass’ on TV, and more classless politicians and vulgarity— America is falling deeper into the cesspool of rapper, black violence, drugs, and sex in an American revisited Sodom and Marxist Gomorrah…every one chasing after that golden Apple I-Phone 22.
And the biggest hypocrisy in this whole thing? The video was made to sell T-shirts that say..
Are you ready for this big feminist statement?
“Girls just want to have fun!”
In other words, be a powerful women, got out there and fuck all the men, as democrats do.
Robot Bartender to Set Sail On Cutting-Edge Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship
No more great dirty jokes, no more sympathetic shoulders, no more Tom Cruise look-a-likes tossing the ladies their favorite drinks, no more ladies in revealing tops that you can watch on a lonely night, while dreaming of taking her home.
No more complaining that the bartender is cheating you on that shot and you are just drinking coke with just an ounce of rum instead of a shot.
Bar owners will be ecstatic to know, that their bartender cannot skim off the cash register any more.
No more college kids making money to put themselves though school…those jobs will soon be gone.
It’s here: The Robotic Bartender.
And they are starting to use them first: on Royal Caribbean:
The ship will implement the Makr Shakr, a drink-making robot that debuted last year at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco. Guests order their drink from a tablet and pay by tapping their electronic SeaPass cards; once the drinks is paid for, the robot mixes it and delivers to the guest via a conveyor belt. Royal Caribbean has spliced Bionic Bar renderings with footage of the Makr Shakr in action, so if you missed the robots the first time around, watch them at work here:
You won’t have to tip, but you CAN be sure, the prices on your menu will not be cheap. And while you get drunk, MAYBE that sexy robot behind the bar will start looking pretty good, and you could slip it a key to your hotel room, and maybe you will get a visit to your room, and that will be another robot.
But, here’ s the good news! You can now buy your own home robot bartender for just $5,000! (Even a non-drinker like me would love one of those.)
Why go to the local bar? Why waste gas money? In fact, have your friends over and charge them for drinks from your new robot bartender buddy! Whose going to know?
And if you want to get more for your buck, you can get a more efficent model for $160,000.
If the machine breaks down, you can always go down to the local pub and get your drink from a person who REALLY cares, and will serve you your glass of wine in a beautiful wine goblet instead of a paper cup.
At least…for now.
From the Drudge Report, CBS:
GLENDALE, AZ. (CBS SF) – A violent brawl in the upper deck of the University of Phoenix stadium spilled down a staircase and left several fans bloodied during the San Francisco 49ers game at Arizona Sunday.
Somebody call Anheiser Busch! This football violence is getting out of hand!
America’s favorite pastime! Football, Beer, and fighting!
Who lost their bet?
Where’s Al Sharpton when you need him?
Hey, check out that girl!
Not enough diversity in football fans.
Or…how can they even SEE the game from up there?
All fans should require helmets.
No booze allowed until after the game.
WHAT did you say about him?
And if you think our football fans our bad, just wait until American soccer starts catching on.
The rest of the world is way ahead of us.
Sorry…I missed my afternoon deadline for Friday, so, Nobody Cares if I just post this really cool video of one of our soldiers (obviously somewhere in the Middle East) playing the Star Spangled Banner during Muslim prayer time.
And let’s add to that uplifting moment, this picture of a sunset that was taken on 9/11 over Richmond, VA.
This was coming from my friend Ruth, a German woman who survived the bombing of Dresden. “and then she MARRIES him!”
I was sitting across the table at our annual “old ladies who swim” luncheon today, and I watched Ruth grab her hamburger and shake her head in disbelief.
She makes a good point, I thought: Since when do people lose their jobs for something they don’t do on the job? This is happening every single day. Even kids are getting kicked out of school for something they don’t even DO in school.
Even thirty years ago, this would not have happened.
She was talking about the subject that has been all over the news for two whole weeks. A football player named Ray Rice, was caught on video, knocking his girlfriend to the floor in an elevator. He then dragged her out of the elevator, and took her home. Obviously, they were both drunk.
Everybody knows that this happens more than we care to think about. Black men beat up their women at a rate higher than white men. Muslim men liked it so much, they wrote it into their religion.
But the excommunication ball got rolling in the fast pace of public lynching: The NFL suspended Ray Rice for life.
Then another football player named Andrian Peterson beat his kid, and we started on the subject all over again.
Well, that did it. Nike terminated Peterson’s deal, worth $750,000 a year. Although it didn’t end its relationship with Michael Vick (the dogfighter), Kobe Bryant OR Tiger Woods.
Anheuser-Busch weighed in on it too.
“We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league,” the statement said.
So, it’s okay to CHEAT on your wife, abuse animals, but…you can’t knock a woman out cold. (And make sure you don’t mention you just had a few Buds)
Maybe we need to review what moral code everybody is following. Like Obama’s war strategy, it’s all over the map.
We have MORE:
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in July involving a woman and an 18-month-old child, the latest in a string of such cases involving NFL players.
Wow. The NFL is on a roll…
Glenn Back had this to say, and I would imagine there are a lot of people who agree with him:
“I’m telling you right now that the only things that matter are principles and values, how you deal with people, how you behave in your personal life and how you behave in your business life,” Beck said. “That’s it. … If you don’t start falling in line with true values, if you don’t start falling into line with eternal principles and common decency, your business is over. It’s just over. And I give that message to the NFL.”
“We are teaching our kids that it doesn’t matter what you do in your personal life, as long as you excel at whatever it is that you do,” Beck concluded. “That’s wrong. That’s showing them that money is over everything else. It’s not.”
Wait…”WE” ? Who are ‘we’? Let’s get this straight. Before the private lives of football players became the most discussed subject on the National stage, we had the private lives of politicians to talk about…only the media cleverly HID all their abuse, (and killings, and murders, and wife beatings) for years.
Glenn Beck was saying today that the State Department was covering up prostitution rings by their ambassadors.
Bill Clinton raped a woman. He kept his job…he almost bit her tongue off. He embarrassed a whole country with his philandering, and he is one of the most popular men on the planet.
And how about those liberal values? Aren’t they really to blame for most of this? John Kennedy…FDR…no values. No principles. How many horn dogs have occupied the White House, and what kind of example do THEY set for the rest of the nation?
Is Nike or Anheuser Busch going to come out and publicly ostracize them?
Yes, we all want morals. But…I can’t help but go back to Ruth.
BEFORE cameras, before NSA, before… Face it, your cooked book…. before cell phones, American’s private lives almost never effected their jobs. Unless of course they got arrested.
We are in a whole new world of crime and punishment. I’m just wondering when they are going to be putting this stuff up on BIG screens throughout the cites.
I heard a male friend of mine say with a resounding gusto of testosterone and common sense of justice…YES!
Nobody Thinks this stuff has happened since the beginning of time, but only NOW with government surveillance, does the whole world get to punish you, and then Nobody Wins when we are all on camera.
In 1984, there was a camera in every room watching your every move.
If I was Ray’s Wife, I’d get him that new giant HD Samsung TV.
We are all spies now.
This week, we don’t have to go any further than that great melting pot of talent called New York.
We have a Nobody’s Perfect contest between the people who dress up as Cartoon Characters in Times Square, VS the newly crowned Miss America, who, you guessed it— is from New York!
This is going to be a tough one.
First: Let’s take the dweebs that harass tourists in Times Square. It seems there are ways to make a living, and there are ways to…make a living and not pay taxes. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Times Square, but since Rudy Giuliani cleaned up the “LIVE SEX ON STAGE!” acts, ALL the men from Wall Street have gone mad…wait….no…. the corporates have moved in and made it a very family friendly experience— you know, a place you can take the kids and watch Batman and Spiderman duke it out…for REAL. Several weeks ago, Spiderman hit a cop, and yes, Batman and Spiderman were arrested for fighting.
Cookie Monster has been known to grab at other things besides cookies.
Since I can’t figure out why Marvel doesn’t sue these people for using their trademarked and copyrighted images, it seems the city of New York has let this go on. But, too many people are showing up dressed as Cartoon Character (70?) and that means too many guys bantering for the same $5.00.
Second: And then you have Miss America…
Kira Kazantsev, the contestant from New York, won the Miss America contest last night, and everybody today is having trouble understanding why. In the talent contest she decided to sit on the floor and play…not four, not fifteen, not twenty, but ONE plastic cup. And that was even hard for her.
I couldn’t figure this out. She had a decent voice, WHY distract from it? You can’t imagine the horror of all New Yorkers…a place that has been known to produce some of the finest talent in the world. And this insult after the fantastic funeral from a REAL New Yorker…Joan Rivers.
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t make me want to visit Broadway any time soon.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Frankly, I didn’t watch the Miss America contest, so I’m going by the video here. I’m guessing she looked pretty good in her swimsuit, or somebody donated a LOT of money to the right judge. While the rest of America wonders what in the world this girl did in college to learn how to play cups besides drink shots of vodka, we can only wonder why she didn’t just sing the song standing on her feet. Still, there have been worse acts to come out of New York…Hillary Clinton for one.
Shame on them. I’m almost tempted to get a plane to New York, dress up as Wonder Woman, and throw them both out of Times Square!
(Ha! Ha!) Sure. Maybe I’ll just follow them around and beat loudly on a plastic cup, while singing “I’m Henry the VII I am!” and drive them crazy enough that they quit and get a minimum wage job like the rest of us.
So, it’s official—- the Mayor of New York wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week.
Be the draconian progressive that you are Mayor De Blasio, and make these people pay taxes like the rest of us, or let Marvel take them to court.
Didn’t you learn ANYTHING in Russia?
This is amazing isn’t it?
Janay Rice not only accepts the fact that she was fully punched and knocked out by the man who “loves” her and doesn’t care, she has the gall to go on the ATTACK. She is attacking all the media outlets who are exploiting the elevator film for ratings and controversy. How DARE anyone get in her business!
Let’s look at it from HER side. Maybe she thinks she was asking for it. And by cutting off all his paycheck, she will have to stop buying new shoes, new coats, new clothes, new cars…she sees her future as disappearing from her life. Is it any wonder that she so pissed? After all, he didn’t kill her. He said he would NEVER do it again. She must think that she really is special.
Now, lets look at it from OUR side: Are you nuts? Why didn’t you have him arrested? Why didn’t you press charges? Instead you MARRY the guy? What did he buy you to make up? Enquiring minds want to know: Was it a diamond ring? A new car? A fur?
Actually, MS Rice thinks just like a democrat. When you HAVE no defense for your actions–do what Obama does—–Attack the other side for even criticizing you.
Why…blame Bush! Blame the white racists who own the football teams. I can’t believe you haven’t thought of that MS Rice.
Nobody Wonders about the mentality of abused women, but I’d say, if Janay wants to believe that this man, will never touch her again, I wonder…
Has she ever heard the 911 calls to the police from Nicole Simpson, long before she was murdered?
Stupid is, as stupid does. We hope his money is worth it Janay. Oh wait: He’s going to lose all that money. Better get it while you can.
I’d say —Better get yourself a gun, and stop spitting.
