Declaring war on the President

"The president declared war against the American people last weekend,"

"Fellow patriots, we are standing outside the arena right now because the president controls the crowd, controls the message, controls the people of this country. That is not freedom! That is not democracy! That is not the America I grew up in!"

"Keep a locked-and-loaded focus."

"I'm not ready for outright violence yet. We have to be civil for as long as we can,"

"The time for armed resistance is near."

"The blood of patriots must feed the tree of liberty."

"Give me liberty or give me death!"

 Tea party protest actual quotes.

And Sarah Palin's not so appropriate campaign call ""it's not a time to retreat, it's a time to reload."

Add posters with Obama in rifle crosshairs, images of Obama with blood over his body, and burning crosses and you have to wonder what the Tea Party actually stands for. If it were a child or in any other circumstance counseling, serious red flags and even, in the case of schools, security would be drawn into question. But with protest against the President of the United States and his party it is defended as free speech.

How else can rifle cross-hairs be taken? Or images of blood. Add the vocal rhetoric and make your own decision. Is this democracy and the discourse of decision making democracy require, in practice and in the halls of our founding fathers?

How should we take them? Is this a threat to our Democracy and if so from which faction(s)?

New Orson Wells Film for Christmas 2011

A new movie starring Orson Wells? The mastermind behind radio's "War of the Worlds" and the film "Citizen Kane" passed away in 1985. The Hollywood Reporter has this  story (link here):

The late Orson Welles is back in the movie business. A rare recording only recently discovered of the filmmaker narrating a children's Christmas novel is being used as the basis for a film. It is being produced by Drac Studios, best known as a special effects and makeup shop for movies like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" but now moving into full-fledged production.

Drac is in development on "Christmas Tails," a 3D live-action/CG hybrid movie to be directed by Todd Tucker and narrated by Welles, who died in 1985.

"It's a movie about how Santa's dog saves Christmas, but on one level, this a story about the discovery of Orson's lost tapes," Drac president Harvey Lowry said. "This is a substantial find. It's something that a filmmaker dreams of."
