Republican Audits

Republican Audits

Well, I've created another website for a close friend, the site designed to bring attention to the fraud and waste of American tax dollars by the federal government including the Internal Revenue Service(IRS).

We're planning to change the website name to "Conservative Audits" within a week and then set up a domain from there. More updates and content will be added to this website next week.

For those Americans who have grown weary of seeing the U.S. federal government waste our tax dollars, be sure to "bookmark" the site in the above link. Thanks!

Jet lag: FIREFOX(1982)

I recently, as I do from to time, purchased a DVD of a movie after seeing it being broadcast on a TV cable channel. AMC recently aired FIREFOX(1982) and, discovering it wasn't in my modest DVD collection, I ordered it online from Amazon.

Clint Eastwood stars in this action adventure film as former Air Force ace pilot "Mitchell Gant", a man   recruited by a joint U.S./UK group to steal a top secret Russian jet capable of Mach 5 speed, possessing an invisibility cloak and thought controlled on-board weapon system. Gant, recruited because of his Russian heritage(on his mother's side), his top notch abilities as a jet pilot and his ability to speak Russian, is well qualified for the high risk assignment but also suffers from PTSD(post traumatic stress syndrome) from his capture and torture at the hands of the Viet Cong after being shot down during a Vietnam War sortie.

A great part of the film focuses on Gants' initial incursion into Russia and his efforts to avoid and evade the KGB which begins following his every move upon his arrival in Moscow. Gant assumes several fake identities and is aided in his efforts by a group of anti Soviet sympathizers who, despite some very close calls, manage to get Mitchell Gant into the hangar and close proximity with "Firefox", the MiG 31 jet he has been tasked with stealing. Eventually Gant manages to get into the warplane's cockpit and take off, triggering an all out effort by the Russians to shoot him down. (no other spoilers).

This movie has grown on me over the years. The big knock on this movie is how long it takes for the real action and special effects to get going which I get. Still, once Gant is in the air piloting "Firefox" the movie really takes off, literally.

Firefox(1982) is on Blu Ray: it's paired with 1986's "Heartbreak Ridge" as a double feature BD release and also is part of the "Clint Eastwood 20 Film Collection" BD release(which is pricey at $119.99).  I'm guessing this movie is generally hit or miss with action movie fans. Eastwood's performance as ex Air Force pilot "Mitchell Gant" is at times a little too casual for me but some of the supporting cast are surprisingly good including Freddie Jones as British SAS point man "Kenneth Aubry" and Stefan Schnabel, the latter who plays rumpled looking, grouchy, sullen and menacing Soviet First Secretary "Leonid Brezhnev".

The special effects are a bit uneven and bear in mind that they cannot compare now with CGI and other green screen effects tech.That said I like the action effects overall.

I'd definitely recommend Firefox(1982) as a Netflix movie rental for action movie fans who haven't seen it.

Some employers look for ways to avoid covering more workers under new Obamacare rules | MedCity News

Some employers look for ways to avoid covering more workers under new Obamacare rules | MedCity News

Looks like more and more Americans will be working part time hours and making less income, courtesy of the Affordable Health Care Act aka 'Obamacare". For anyone with any kind of common sense and ability to reason, the greater the number of Americans working fewer hours in the workplace equates to a greater number of Americans earning LESS money which makes it more financially difficult for those Americans looking to obtain health insurance and those who are insured but will have to continue paying their health insurance premiums while earning less income from their jobs. Makes sense...if you're a liberal Democrat.
