    .....and in the scene where President Commacho introduces Joe to the House O' Representin', I noticed for the first time the President gets heckled. By the senator from South Carolina.



    That movie constantly astonishes me with its ability to predict the future.

    I know, it is a comedy but every day I see more and more stuff that is straight out of the movie and that really bothers me. At this rate, it won't take 500 years to end up where the movie takes place, maybe 50 years is more like it.

    You guys do know that movie is just a simple extrapolation from current conditions right?

    There's some clever in there but it's nothing psychic.

    I don't know. For a movie that was released in 2006, the president getting heckled by some d-bag from South Carolina seems pretty damn prescient to me.

    One of favorite movies and its happening. The other night I was at a festival with my wife and kid and I saw more people using the automatic door openers and closers on their minivans than people who actually used their arms and hands to open them. Pitiful.

    Using your arms and hands is for loozers! Anything that can't be done by pressing a button should not be done.

    Minivans are part of the problem. These people, they buy a minivan after kid #1 and think that the point of the minivan is to fill the damn thing up with offspring.

    Minivans should be sold with a sample pack of RU-486 and one free vasectomy.

    nope, that would be the CON-servatives.....the rest of us are either laughing or crying at the idea...

    Same crap going on up here with "Northern Gateway" a proposed pipeline from Alberta to the BC coast, but not the coast coast, but to Kitamat which is way up a series of tight narrow channels - no problem for the oil tankers right, what could go wrong....???

    I thought Canadians know it won't be safe, which is why they want it built through the US instead of through their own damn lands... :)
