  • Why I Can't Stand Orange is the New Black's Author Piper Kerman

    Why I Can’t Stand Author Piper Kerman of Orange is the New Black Piper Kerman’s Orange is the New Black was a best seller several years ago, which spawned a popular Netflix T.V. series of the same name. Less than 50 pages into the book I couldn’t stand her. Her behavior and attitude later in the book confirmed that feeling. The actual charge she does time for doesn’t bother me nearly as much as what kind of person Piper is – and isn’t. Among other things, Piper Kerman is a self-centered elitist snob, and I straight up do not like...

    BREXIT THE MOVIE is a feature-length documentary film to inspire as many people as possible to vote to LEAVE the EU in the June 23rd referendum. BREXIT THE MOVIE spells out the danger of staying part of the EU. Is it safe to give a remote government beyond our control the power to make laws? Is it safe to tie ourselves to countries which are close to financial ruin, drifting towards scary political extremism, and suffering long-term, self-inflicted economic decline? BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don't want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the...

    Typically, Bill Maher begins his weekly Real Time show on HBO by telling his audience, “I know why you’re happy tonight” and then mentioning some positive news story that happened that week. This week, on the heels of the United Kingdom’s vote to “Brexit” the European Union, the host went with, “I guess you don’t have any money in the stock market.” “The issue got hijacked by a bunch of anti-immigration isolationists who were obsessed with the idea that foreigners are stealing their jobs,” Maher said of the world-changing referendum. “Thank god something like that could never happen here.” The...

    Hillary Clinton is about to get a boost of Tony-winning star power. According to an email sent to subscribers on Saturday, the Clinton campaign announced an extra performance of Broadway’s Hamilton has been added as a fundraiser to support the presumed democratic presidential nominee. Set up by the Hillary Victory Fund, the performance will be a Tuesday matinee on July 12 at the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York City. Tickets start at $2,700 for general seating and go all the way up to “event chair” seating at $100,000, which includes “two Premium Seats and Wrap Party with Hillary and...

    FORT HUACHUCA — Even the stars were a little starstruck. It’s one thing to portray the military in Hollywood, as the cast of the blockbuster “Independence Day” did 20 years ago in a story that featured people of Earth banding together to topple alien invaders. Much of the cast has regrouped, with some new cast members, for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” the much anticipated sequel that hits theaters this Thursday. But to visit the troops on their turf and see what they do to defend the U.S. is quite another thing. Two stars from the new film, Jessie T. Usher and...

    I think it's pretty stupid to vote for Democrats who, rather than protecting individual rights, openly want to violate individual rights. The whole job of the government is the former, and so you're electing people who want to do the exact opposite of what the actual role of government is. Rather than a government that protects rights (as a policeman), you elect Democrats who create a government that violates rights (like a criminal itself). Yes, the Republicans are bad too, but the Democrats take rights-violating to the n'th degree, and their ideal political system (socialism) is one of the most...

    If you’ve been worried that there isn’t an easy enough way to help your kids understand the thorny issues of overt racism championed by presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Netflix — as it often does — has a show for you. The Emmy-winning Netflix original show “All Hail King Julien,” based on the popular DreamWorks movie-series “Madagascar,” debuts its third season Friday. And there’s an episode about Trump. Although the King Julien character was not originally intended to be a Trump parody in the “Madagascar” universe, the show’s creators decided the royal lemur could be a perfect teaching tool...

The Girls creator and star, who has publicly supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton since the start of her campaign, has been critical of the billionaire since he launched his bid for the White House. And at TheWrap's Power Women Breakfast in New York on Thursday (09Jun16), the actress did not hold back when talking about Trump. Calling him a "maniacal, misogynist, racist, Islamophobic, ableist, transphobic hell hound", she went on to reveal she frequently laughs at the controversial politician. "I think we...

    Columnists are starting to blame voters for the rise of Donald Trump, and say their collective decision to make him the presumptive Republican nominee is a terrible mistake. Liberal columnist Richard Cohen wrote in the Washington Post on Monday that the election has filled him with a sense of "fear of my fellow Americans." "I don't mean the occasional yahoo who turns a Trump rally into a hate fest," he wrote. "I mean the ones who do nothing. Who are silent. Who look the other way… I always knew who Trump was. It's the American people who have come as...

    A lot of liberal celebrities are not pleased with Donald Trump’s lead in the 2016 presidential race. In fact, many are promising to leave the United States if the Republican front-runner is elected. Trump has gotten wind of this, and seems to be having fun with the idea. On a Tuesday episode of “Fox and Friends,” the hosts told Trump that stars such as comediennes Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donell and actress Lena Dunham said they would flee the country if he becomes president. “We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected!” he...

Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the...

Surprising nobody, in its report Univision included no critical or opposing views against the hat. Not only did Univision give Saldaña their platform to promote...

There appears never to have been any legal dispute about the use of the program title "Target: The Corrupters!" or the logo of a dark bullseye on a white background.

We are also, fascinated with bulletproof objects like the Captain America shield. Gun retailers Miculek.com took this thought a step further and actually tested a Captain America shield weighing 12 pounds. Miculek did make a modification on the shield, he used a titanium one, where as in the comic, the shield was made by Vibranium. Stan Lee the comic creator came up with the term because he wasn’t a metallurgist. So Miculek crew took the shield out to...

This week we get to find out if it can be successfully used as an offensive weapon to go for the kill. The titanium model that Jerry Miculek is using is a 12-pound shield that matches exactly that of Captain America. Take a look at the video as Miculek tries his hand at throwing the shield as a weapon at a ballistics dummy to see what the damage may look like. See the result here.

Donald Trump is running for President and, if he wins, it will spark a global catastrophe or something. Honestly, we’re not entirely sure what she thinks is going to happen, and we don’t really care. She’s deep in the tank for Hillary, so it’s a safe bet she harbors the same fears about anyone who would dare usurp her chosen queen. Because of her deep-seated fears, she’s joined a growing list of Hollywood leftists who are incentivizing a Trump presidency by promising to leave...

The HBO host was, naturally, a bit crestfallen that his preferred candidate, Bernie Sanders, lost out to by 16 points to Hillary Clinton—and that his nemesis, Donald Trump, won his home state handily. “The conventional wisdom is that it’s just Hillary and Trump. Those are our two choices,” said Maher during his monologue. “They...

    There’s a new movie currently in the works at Warner Brothers which will pitch two legendary monsters against each other: King Kong and Godzilla. King Kong, of course, was a gigantic, snorting, chest-beating gorilla which never felt a single shred of empathy for anyone in its life and was viewed, depending on who you ask, as either a rampaging monster or an anti-hero. Godzilla was a pre-historic, roaring, very strategic, fire-breathing lizard-like cross between a gorilla and a whale which saw itself as a driving force to restore balance to nature wherever that balance is disrupted – saving the world...

The movie review website Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 29 percent rating, which is the same score given to “Dumb and Dumber To” (that's not a typo) and “Grudge Match” — a boxing movie featuring the fight between then 67-year-old Sylvester Stallone and 70-year-old Robert DeNiro.

    A recent post noted that the top-rated television programs in 1965 included “The Beverly Hillbillies” at No. 2.

The intellectuals hated “The Beverly Hillbillies.” They hated it for the same reasons ordinary Americans loved it: It offered thirty minutes of simple, clean comedy, crisp writing, and characters who were decent, honest, happy, and had plenty of moral fiber. The critics just...

    William Shatner is being sued for $170 million by a radio host who claims to be the “Star Trek” legend’s long-lost son. Peter Sloan has boldly gone and filed legal paperwork in Florida demanding Shatner submit to a DNA test and cease claiming he isn’t his father. Sloan, 59, claims his birth mother, late Canadian actress Kathy McNeil, had a brief affair with Captain Kirk in Toronto. She gave him up for adoption at 5 days old. But Shatner, 85, denies Sloan is his son, and claims the local radio host is trying to unfairly live long and prosper from...

    A group named Indecline, founded by Bum Fights (2002) creators Ryan MacPherson and Daniel Tanner, tagged empty stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with names of people killed by police officers. Names like Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Oscar Grant, and Eric Garner were placed on Hollywood stars where a celebrity’s name would normally appear. The group’s prank has been immortalized online in a video posted to Vimeo titled “#BlackLivesMatter: Hollywood.”(continued)

    A handsomely made, finely acted miniseries, Jesus of Nazareth (1977) plays a lot like a distillation of the best components from all of the biblical epics of the 1940s-‘60s that had preceded it while generally avoiding those movies' flaws. Despite its all-star cast, for instance, Jesus of Nazareth steers clear of the sometimes goofy, distracting stunt casting found in George Stevens's The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), mostly famously John Wayne as the Roman centurion with the single line, "Truly, this man was the Son of Gawd." It's less artful in some respects than King of Kings (1961), but improves...

    Now how could this be? How could Sean Hannity have gotten it so wrong? >>>Earlier I said a pro-Cruz PAC pushed the Melania ad. Incorrect, the group has no affiliation with Cruz & as I said, Cruz condemned it<<< Twitter source
