Leni Riefenstahl is Smiling…


You’re at the end of your life in this world. You have just shy of 17 minutes left of breath to draw. There is a short list of things you can do to finish your time in this life. A couple would bring great joy and pleasure to you and your loved ones, leaving them with a wonderful final memory of you. One, or more, of them just might extend your life several more years, and they would be some of the most enjoyable, productive, and fulfilling years of your entire life for you and your loved ones.

On the flip-side … In a sudden flash of your full life before your eyes you just remembered you spent 16:57 watching Davis “I’ll Never Get THAT F*cking 16:57 of My Life Back” Guggenheim’s Obama propaganda porn narrated by Sheriff “”You Are A Toy, Buzz!” Woody in the spring of 2012 and…


Yeah, Obama is just too ... perfect.

    If you listen to any Obama speech it is usually, I did this or I gave you this, and if it wasn't for me kind of stuff. No mention of what individual Americans did. And if by chance he mentions the American people, it is usually in a context of a pack of lies because he doesn't believe a word he is saying.
    So here we have a surrogate saying he did this and he gave us this and there isn't even any pretense here of individual American achievement because even the auto industry was given so much money, that to brag that they are doing well is a big joke.
    So plus ca change...

    Well, I'm happy to say that I didn't lose 17 minutes of my life, I only lost 3 minutes! After 3 minutes of pure unadulterated propaganda, when the detestable Emmunal Rahm starting glorifying his boss, I couldn't bare it anymore and turned it off. I then went on to see Davis Guggenheim get eviscerated, so that sort of made up for the lost 3 minutes. That said, this is the first time, I heard of Guggenheim. What an idiot. Reminded me of one of those filmmakers that you see in Cuba, but at least those Cuban filmmakers are working under the vengeful eye of the Cuban totalitarian state. They have no choice but to create disgusting, unbridled propaganda. What's this man's excuse?

    I found this one rather droll:

    Not mentioned: Honduras.

    Nice teeth, though.
