The Liberal Lantern is not Green

"Green Lantern. The idea that the FREE WILL of one man can overcome the collective fear of multiple universes is intriguing enough to spend ten bucks.

This is indeed one fighting force donning the color scheme green that is not tied to anything marketed to save the planet by pampering nature with liberal cloying love. Good for a rainy day, and even a sunny day. The Green Lantern is a must see. WHY ?

Because it’s a super hero movie for one, and it seems every super hero is anti liberal by being pro American spirit … “truth, justice and the American way” , even though Superman was never allowed to say it on the screen for some politically correct reason.

Cheesy to love such fiction, I know … but the Green Lantern, like all super heroes teaches something - and this film teaches, or at least emphasizes greatly, the power of free will. Being that Free Will is not something the left likes to enforce, or acknowledge, this naturally jumps to the top of the summer watch list and all time favorites for examples to bash liberal thinking.”

Okay, so odd punctuation, ideas about anti-liberal superheroes, and bizarre review aside, I have to do a nerd fact check here:

"The most recent incarnation to use the 1950’s phrase was the 1978 Christopher Reeve movie, "Superman." When Lois first interviews the Man of Steel, she asks why he’s here, and he responds straight-faced: "I’m here to fight for truth, justice and the American way." It’s the first time Superman himself ever uses the phrase — a bold move considering how cynical the country had become after the Vietnam War and Watergate."

Police say Carolee Bildsten, 56, attempted to strike a cop with a sex toy on Nov 9. The Gurnee, Ill. resident was confronted by an officer after allegedly walking out on her bill at a restaurant. The cop escorted her home to retrieve cash, and that’s when Bildsten reportedly whipped out a “clear, rigid feminine pleasure device” and approached the cop in a “threatening manner.” But Bildsten insists she was acting in self defense.

Read the rest of the story here. It’s exactly what you think.

Puppy love: man marries a real dog

A YOUNG Toowoomba man yesterday tied the knot with his best friend – a five-year-old labrador.

In perhaps a first for the Garden City, Laurel Bank Park hosted the wedding of Joseph Guiso and Honey, a labrador he adopted five years ago.

Thirty of the couple’s closest friends and family were in attendance for the emotional ceremony, held at dusk.

"You’re my best friend and you make every part of my day better," Mr Guiso’s vows read.

The couple decided on the location – and to tie the knot - after stumbling upon a wedding in Laurel Bank Park during an afternoon walk.

"I said that could be us," Mr Guiso said.

"She didn’t say anything so I took that as a yes."

Mr Guiso said as a “religious guy”, he could no longer take the guilt of living with Honey out of wedlock.

"It’s not sexual," he assured the onlookers.

"It’s just pure love."

The couple is planning a short honeymoon to one of Toowoomba’s parks.

Uh, what? Before any of the super-patriots on here start howling (pun totally intended), Australia does NOT have same-sex marriage, and besides, he’s religious so it’s all good right?
