Martian in the closet

It's a very cold day in hell when this blog will defend Matt Damon, but today is such a day. The latest queer temper tantrum and fall-out that Matt is having with the gender Guardians is too much for me to bear. I know, I know - let him suffer. If anyone deserves this twisted gay hate retribution it's Matt Damon who's heterodox Hollywood leftist pabulum has dripped unfiltered from his puffy lips for almost 20 years. It's just that I don't play it that way, with very few exceptions, and I'm certainly not going to play it that way with this player. First off, before I say anything else, I have to give credit to the man for an unbelievable work ethic - acting in 70+ films/TV shows, producing 20 films, writing 4 scripts and literally hundreds of appearances on mindless talk shows and other promotional crap over the course of 20 years is impressive. Say what you will about his Commie ideology but this guy is living the American Dream, raking in green-backs and working his ass off. Impossible for me to have seen all of this product, and many of the efforts leave me cold - the Clooney, Soderbergh Ocean's series was dumb, Bourne was OK the first time but THREE! (now FOUR!!!), and leftist propaganda like Che and Promised Land is just too heavy handed for my taste - but almost everything is well crafted entreatment. More importantly, some of these movies are gems and his participation probably played a big part in getting them made - to choose a few at random:

  • The Talented Mr. Ripley
  • EuroTrip
  • The Good Shepherd
  • We Bought a Zoo

With the exception of The Good Shepherd none of these are overtly political and TGS was quite complex in it's "message", such that it was. Honestly, the films greatest failing was Angelina Jolie as Matt's overwhelmed wife (bad casting), but I digress. The point is, I don't write off an actor, musician, playwright, mime or clown no matter what their personal or political views might be. I watch Woody Alan movies, listen to Streisand songs, read Stephen King stories because their damn good at what they do no matter how much stupid stuff they say when NOT doing what they do best. Matt Damon is no exception to this rule - though a full throated Knight of the Golden Circle - like Abe Lincoln, I look to the persons abilities and what they do well with the understanding that I must suffer what they do poorly as part of the bargain.

Homophobia in Action

And I include playing a horny, drug addicted, money grubbing, plastic faced ninny named  Scott Thorson in HBO's gay propaganda bio-epic on Liberace titled Behind the Candelabra (95% Critic approval on RotTom). I mean, what does a guy have to do in this world to prove he's pro-gay enough? Shouldn't having sex with Michael Douglas win an actor some props in the LGTBYOB community? Answer: No. But the worst part of the whole thing, in my opinion, is that Matt Damon is right! The less the audience knows about the actor, the more mystery that surrounds the thespians inner workings and personal beliefs the better it is for the dramatic presentation and the viewing audience. Once these actors die and the truth of their screwed up morality and mentality is revealed in biography and documentary exposé it tarnishes what should be experienced as a singular piece of art. Why ruin everything while you're still alive and able to keep your debauchery securely locked away in the closet making the world a better place and improving your performance.

Most recently Matt has been spending a lot of time in outer space - Elysium, Interstellar and The Martian - and who can blame him for wanting to get off this planet. Maybe on Mars he'll be able to say what he wants without being labeled a hater.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
