Japanese Invent Robot From Aliens

Japanese engineers have taken us one step closer to the robot revolution by developing a machine inspired by the movie Aliens.

The Dual-Arm Power Amplification Robot by Activelink gives users superhuman strength and resembles the hydraulic exoskeleton worn by Sigourney Weaver in the climactic scene of the sci-fi classic.

obama Shits on Flag to Promote Health Care

DNC Uses Flag Desecration Video to Raise Funds

As a heart monitor beeps ominously in the background, a graffiti artist paints over the Stars and Stripes with phrases criticizing opposition to the Democratic legislation, including 'profit over life' and the crossed-out words 'death panels.' The whole flag is eventually smeared with paint and blacked out.

Yet another cue as to what obama thinks of America....

Arnold in Japan!

The complete anthology!

Gov. Schwarzenegger Sends "F-bomb" Note?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger typically attaches a message to bills he signs or vetoes telling lawmakers why he took the action.

A Democratic assemblyman who heckled the governor during a recent event in San Francisco actually received two messages: the veto letter itself and a not-so-subtle rebuke creatively hidden within it.

Like a find-the-word puzzle, the second message was visible by stringing together the first letter of each line down the left-hand margin. It consisted of a common four-letter vulgarity followed by the letters "y-o-u."

Nothing to Worry About Here...

President Barack Obama has only been in office for just over nine months, but he's already hit the links as much as President Bush did in over two years...

Brian Stann

Stann was born at Yokota Air Base in Japan and grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Scranton Preparatory School and then matriculated to the United States Naval Academy in 2003. He played football for the Midshipmen at the position of middle linebacker during his time at the Naval Academy.[1] Upon graduation, he was assigned as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps, and rose to the rank of Captain.[2]

On May 8, 2005, Lt. Stann was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines and his commanded the 2nd Mobile Assault Platoon. During Operation Matador, his unit was ambushed by insurgents while trying to secure Ramana Bridge, near Karabilah. Stann and his Marines held out for six days under heavy attacks while Stann coordinated air and tank support that eventually allowed them to be relieved on May 14, 2005.[3] All forty-two Marines in Stann's platoon survived, and the following March, Stann was awarded the Silver Star, the nation's third highest award for valor in combat.[4] Part of the citation reads: "Second Lieutenant Stann personally directed two casualty operations, three vehicle recovery operations and multiple close air support missions under enemy small arms, machine gun and mortar fire in his 360-degree fight."[3] This mission was shown on the episode, "Iraq's Most Wanted" on the History Channel show, Shootout!, in which Brain Stann was interviewed. He left active duty in the Marine Corps as of May 2008.

Marine Corps officials say they continue to use Stann's story as a recruiting tool, and he attributes his success to the MMA foundation he learned fighting at the Marine Corps Martial Arts Center for Excellence in Quantico, Va. “He has been an ideal spokesperson and role model,” said Lt. Col. Mike Zeliff, assistant chief of staff for advertising with Marine Corps Recruiting Command.[5]

The Press Finally Stands up to the White House

The Obama administration on Thursday failed in its attempt to manipulate other news networks into isolating and excluding Fox News, as Republicans on Capitol Hill stepped up their criticism of the hardball tactics employed by the White House.

The Obama administration on Thursday tried to make "pay czar" Kenneth Feinberg available for interviews to every member of the White House pool except Fox News. The pool is the five-network rotation that for decades has shared the costs and duties of daily coverage of the presidency.

But the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV networks consulted and decided that none of their reporters would interview Feinberg unless Fox News was included.

The administration relented, making Feinberg available for all five pool members and Bloomberg TV.

The pushback came after White House senior adviser David Axelrod told ABC News' "This Week" on Sunday that Fox News is not a real news organization and other news networks "ought not to treat them that way."

Media analysts cheered the decision to boycott the Feinberg interview unless Fox News was included, saying the administration's gambit was taking its feud with Fox News too far. President Obama has already declined to go on "Fox News Sunday," even while appearing on the other Sunday shows.

For Chuckles...

BSG: The Plan - New Movie to be Released on October 27th

The Plan chronicles the first 281 days of the Battlestar Galactica series through the eyes of the Cylons. Director Edward James Olmos (who also stars as Commander William Adama) has said the film will pull together so many strings that you’ll be compelled to watch the entire series again.

The DVD is said to run 30 minutes longer than the version to air on Syfy, primarily consisting of additional footage from the Cylon’s perspective.

Olmos has also stated if it sells well on DVD it will guarantee “more Battlestar movies.”

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan will air on Syfy during November 2009, but will be available first on DVD and Blu-Ray October 27, 2009.

The DVD and Blu-ray versions can be pre-ordered now from Amazon.
Check out the DVD on Amazon.

Kansas City Billboard Speaks the Truth

Drivers on Interstate 70 can barely see the billboard but once they do the message has been gaining attention.The billboard is located along I-70 between the Adams Dairy Parkway and the Grain Valley exits. The billboard reads, "How do you like your change now? Obama Nation. They are coming for you! The Taxpayer. First and Second Amendments are in jeopardy. Live free or Die." There is also a hammer and sickle on the sign. story link.

New Star Trek Movie to be Released on November 17th!

The upcoming Star Trek DVD/Blu-Ray throws in tons of deleted scenes, including Spock's parents, Kirk's uncle, Klingon prison-breaks... and Kirk apologizing to a green woman? Special features explain everything — except the writers' theory of time travel.

On November 17, Paramount is releasing the highest-grossing Star Trek movie of all time on DVD and BluRay. The DVD version has considerably less than the BluRay — the latter version has "branching pods" embedded in the special features. Think of it like a non-hidden Easter Egg, a special featurette within the features. story link.

obama Wins Nobel Prize for Something or Other...

2009 Nobel Peace Prize - The Losers

Out of the record number of 205 nominees for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, here are some of those that lost out to obama's gigantic, magnificent, and boundless record of accomplishments...

Greg Mortenson
. Son of a missionary, a former army Medic and mountaineer, he has made it his mission to build schools for girls in places where opium dealers and tribal warlords kill people for trying. His Central Asia Institute has built more than 130 schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan — a mission which has, along the way, inspired millions of people to view the protection and education of girls as a key to peace and prosperity and progress.

The Cluster Munitions Coalition. An international civil society movement campaigning against the use, production, stockpiling and transfer of cluster munitions. Cluster munitions are a type of explosive weapon widely stockpiled by more than 80 states. They are documented to have caused significant civilian deaths and injuries and have frequently caused indiscriminate effects both during and after conflicts.

Hu Jia, a human rights activist and an outspoken critic of the Chinese government, who was sentenced last year to a three-and-a-half-year prison term for "inciting subversion of state power."

Wei Jingsheng, who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China's communist system. He now lives in the United States.

Chicago "O"ut in Humiliating First Round IOC Vote

There has been a growing narrative taking hold about Barack Obama’s presidency in recent weeks: that he is loved by many, but feared by none; that he is full of lofty vision, but is actually achieving nothing with his grandiloquence.

Chicago’s dismal showing today, after Mr Obama’s personal, impassioned last-minute pitch, is a stunning humiliation for this President. It cannot be emphasised enough how this will feed the perception that on the world stage he looks good — but carries no heft.

Mr Obama was greeted — as usual — like a rock star by the IOC delegates in Copenhagen — then humiliated by them. Perception is reality. A narrow defeat for Chicago would have been acceptable — but the sheer scale of the defeat was a bombshell, and is a major blow for Mr Obama at a time when questions are being asked about his style of governance.
