American Sniper Freakout

***Why the Left can't abide this movie.

In content and tone, American Sniper is distinctly different from the sand movies that preceded it in that it unambiguously celebrates the heroism of the soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. In this, American Sniper is in rarefied company. Last year’s Lone Survivor—based on a book by Kyle’s good friend and fellow SEAL Marcus Luttrell—and the little-seen 2009 HBO film Taking Chance are about the only other notable exceptions to Hollywood’s seeming obsession with delegitimizing the war on terror and those fighting it.

Good piece about how Hollywood would much rather couch the War on Terror as a mistake made by the United States without placing blame where it belongs, on terrorists.

***School choice making steady progress. This is good news.

Sunday marked the start of National School Choice Week, an annual celebration of education reforms that give parents the power to pick the schools, public or private, that are best for their children.
There’s much to celebrate: There are more than 50 such school choice programs — including school vouchers and tax-credit scholarship programs — in 25 states serving more than 300,000 children. Furthermore, about half of these programs were enacted in the past five years, which indicates that momentum for school choice is rapidly accelerating. This is not just because school choice works — study after study shows that it improves students’ academic performance, increases parental satisfaction, and forces public schools to improve — but because parents are increasingly demanding it.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's rousing speech  at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday has early speculation favoring his "go big and go bold" call to Republicans.

Walker received multiple standing ovations during his speech, with news outlets reporting that the crowd was more receptive to him than to other potential GOP 2016 hopefuls including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

"If you’re not afraid to go big and go bold, you can actually get results," Walker told the enthusiastic crowd.

"There's a reason we take a day off to celebrate the 4th of July and not the 15th of April," said Walker, pacing the stage in rolled up shirtsleeves. "Because in America we value our independence from the government, not our dependence on it."

***You're not gonna believe this - okay, maybe you will. Al Gore wants to ban cars in cities. 
If you live in a major city and own a car, you might not be able to keep your car in the city, or you might have to give up your car all together. You see, former Vice President Al Gore and his current partner in crime, former Mexican President Felipe Calderon, are looking to obtain $90 trillion dollars in order to ban cars from all major cities. Gore and Calderon, presenting a report from the Global Commission on the Economy & Climate (GCEC) at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, argued that making cities more compact, wholly reliant on public transportation, and “more climate friendly” is the only way to ensure that cities do not contribute to global warming.
Do you realize how close this psycho came to being President of the United States?? You can bet your bottom dollar he won't be giving up his luxury cars and jets. No, these rules will be for the "little people."

***Have you heard about this? There was a drone crash at the White House.

A two-foot-long "quadcopter" drone crashed onto the White House grounds overnight, triggering an immediate lockdown as well as a Secret Service investigation into where the mysterious device came from.  Brian Leary, a Secret Service spokesman, said that an officer posted on the south grounds of the White House complex "heard and observed" the device "flying at a very low altitude" shortly after 3 a.m. ET. Leary said the drone ultimately crashed on the southeast side of the complex.

No wonder our national security is so messed up. They can't even track down a drone coming at the White House.
