Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn: Who's Afraid of Gay Cowboys

Today I surfed over to Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn and read a great post Who’s Afraid Of A Couple Of Gay Cowboys? It points out Hollyweirds Gay agenda in making Brokeback Mountain and also its agenda in how it promotes the film.
Is it bigotry against homosexuals that is to blame for the fact that this movie isn’t being as widely distributed as other films?
It’s because theaters are in business to make money and they are not going to show movies that they do not believe will draw an audience and earn the theater money.
The Ang Lee film, which follows the 20-year forbidden romance between two roughneck ranch hands, earned $13,599 per theater, compared with $9,305 for weekend winner “King Kong” and $8,225 for “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Okay, that’s nice.
If Brokeback Mountain in it’s widest release is being shown in 269 theaters.
The Chronicles of Narnia in it’s widest release is being shown in 3,853 theaters.
King Kong in it’s widest release is being shown in 3,626 theaters.
So not only does Hollywood want us to believe that the Gay lifestlye is a normal alternative. They want us to believe that everybody has accepted this fact because Brokeback Mountain has a higher per screen gross than blockbusters King Kong and Narnia. Don't buy it. The blockbusters are being seen in at least 13 TIMES as many theaters. Go to Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn and read the whole thing.

UPDATE: DL Foster stopped by in the comments and mentioned his post Broken Art Imitates Broken Life at his blog Perspectives in Motion. It is an excellent post about the film from a Christian perspective. He raises some very interesting points. And he ruffled quite a few gay feathers as seen in his comment section. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

These Are Few of My Least Favorite Things

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I did. And now that it is over I have a moment to unwind and reflect. I have been reflecting on some of the things I dislike about Christmas. Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas, and I always get excited about the birth of Christ and the hope his birth gave to us all. But there are some things, and trends, that seem to be threatening Christmas
  • The Non-Christmas Christmas Specials. More and more, television in its effort to cash in on Christmas will have a Christmas Special. They even call it a “Christmas Special”. But they emphasize the day and the joy and even miracles without ever mentioning Christ. “Why is everybody so full of love? Because it’s Christmas!” As if peace on Earth, good will towards men happens because it’s December 25th. No it happens because it’s when we acknowledge the birth of the Saviour, Immanuel, God with us. They portray the magic of Christmas as some form of generic goodness that somehow, without rhyme or reason, manifests itself December 25th. At least they never tell you the reason.
  • Generic Holiday Greetings. The Generic Holiday Greeting assumes that all holidays around Christmas are equally valid. By wishing you “Happy Holidays” they steal something from the significance of Christmas and apply it to your holiday of choice. Kwanzaa is not equally as valid as Christmas. For years I thought Kwanzaa was that brown animal thing from The Muppet Show.

  • Santa Proliferation. Jesus is out of the public schools but Santa is exalted. Mark at Cutting Edge of Ecstasy had this post Santa Claus Promoted By God-Denying Schools
    Then there's Santa Claus. Usually, we get all in a lather when our education system lies to our children. Think of the recent ruling barring the teaching of 'Intelligent Design'. But in the case of a teacher in Richardson Texas who had the nerve to tell some first-graders that there is no Santa, Richardson school district spokesman felt it necessary to announce '"The teacher did hear from Santa Claus himself, who heard about the situation and let the teacher know that the spirit of the holidays is alive and well and to pass that message along to the students."'
    Wow. Just how far have we gone away from God in this country? Personally I never promote Santa. We teach our own kids and Sunday School kids that Christmas is about Jesus not Santa. How do you convince a child when he gets older that Jesus is real when they have never seen him, after they’ve learned that Santa is a lie after you’ve promoted him and they have seen him every year? I don’t tell stranger’s kids that there is no Santa unless they ask me directly. I won’t lie to them especially at Christmas.

  • Non Christians Singing Christmas Carols. First I don’t mean if your company has an office party and everybody breaks out into “Silent Night” or “Joy to the World”. I am talking about people like Barbara Streisand who is obviously not Christian, and in fact has been critical of conservative Christians in her moonbat ravings. She will release an album of Christmas songs. Is it me or does it seem a little hypocritical to sing about the birth of the Saviour when you don’t actually believe he is the Saviour? And this goes for any performer who fully embraces the Hollywood humanistic/Deists philosophies and then cuts a Christmas Album. It’s not about Jesus, it’s about the Benjamins.

So there are my quickie observations about Christmas this year. These trends are getting worse. Unless we turn it around we will lose Christmas to the Anti-Christmas crowd.

I Have Been Tagged

One of the many Lyn Perrys, specifically the one at For Bloggin Outloud has tagged me. This is not supposed to be a meme but I am too much an unnuanced thinker to be able to tell the difference. I am to list five weird habits.

1. I prefer yellow mustard on my French Toast. I don’t know where I picked that up but instead of syrup I slap on some French’s.

2. I dismember strangers and store them in my basement freezer. Well, I guess that is not really weird, since everybody stores their dismembered strangers in a basement freezer.

3. I can go weeks and sometimes months without watching T.V. I currently watch only one broadcast network series and that is Smallville. I’ve seen the first 4 episodes (watched in one sitting) and I have at least 9 sitting on my DVR waiting to be viewed. (TiVo be praised) I plan to catch up over the Christmas/New Year week. I am looking forward to January when the new seasons of the 3 cable network series I watch begin. I am referring to Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, and Battlestar Galactica.

4. I live out of my car despite the fact that I own a home. The current contents of my 2004 Sebring are:
  • Several King James Bibles
  • Empty coffee cups and coke bottles
  • 1 case of (48) 8oz bottles of Purell with Aloe (since yesterday)
  • Several plastic pirate swords with cardboard eye patches and several bandanas with skull and crossbones on them (since October)
  • Unopened Wiper blades (since September)
  • Several Marvel and DC comic books and graphic novels (since April)
  • 144 oz Sheetz drink Mug with straw (forever)
5. I walk up to total strangers and ask them if they died today would they be 100% sure they would go to Heaven. To those of you who don’t think that is weird you recognize soul winning. This is less habit and more Great Commission. It is not without consequences. You haven’t lived until an otherwise sweet, gentle grandmother swears at you like a sailor and threatens to have you arrested. Once I even had a man answer the door by pointing an assault rifle at me. I guess that’s where I learned that people need no excuse to behave badly and be rude. It’s also when I started stocking my basement freezer.

Now I am suppose to tag 5 people. Hmmm. I don’t think I know 5 people. But I think I will start with some people who are MIA in the blogosphere. There’s Moe at Moes Woes. You’re it buddy. And to help moehawk’s creative juices flow I tag him at oystersnout. Definitely not MIA is Eddie at I also tag fellow Buckeye Mark at Cutting Edge Of Ecstasy whom I couldn’t find on my blogroll. This puzzled me since I read his blog every day. Then I realized he’s in my RSS reader. Sometimes technology can be too much. Anyway I have rectified my blogroll error. Sorry Mark. And lastly there is another Buckeye, Chrys at Pettifog.

Give Me a Frickin Break!

I made my feelings about Tookie Williams' execution clear prior to his meeting his maker at 12:35am PST. Tookie maintained he was innocent up to the end So where do the moonbat brigade get off making statements like this one?
After watching her longtime friend die, Barbara Becnel told the crowd of hundreds gathered outside prison gates that she would prove Williams' innocence and that Schwarzenegger was a "cold-blooded murderer."
Arnold is a cold-blooded murderer? Just on semantics alone, execution is not murder. Execution is punishment and in this case punishment that fit the crime. Governor Schwarzenegger did not sentence Tookie to die, a jury did. Governor Schwarzenegger did not believe that he should discard the findings of due process and give a quadruple murderer clemancy. So for that he is a cold blooded murderer?
But wait there's more.
Singer Joan Baez, M A S H actor Mike Farrell and the Rev. Jesse Jackson were among the celebrities who protested the execution.

"Tonight is planned, efficient, calculated, antiseptic, cold-blooded murder and I think everyone who is here is here to try to enlist the morality and soul of this country," said Baez, who sang "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" on a small plywood stage set up just outside the gates.
Great. More leftist luminaries heard from. They want to "enlist the morality and soul of this country" for the KILLER. They can't get it throught their empty skulls that the morality and soul of this country came down on Tookie Williams for the evil he did against four American citizens and the terror he unleashed against an entire community. But don't expect the MSM to side with the victims.
Whatever luck Williams found on the streets avoiding the law ended in 1979 after four people were killed in a pair of armed robberies that were connected to him and his pump-action shotgun.
So Tookie was just "unlucky" that his shotgun killed four people. And even though balistics tied the crime to his weapon the news still won't come out and say Tookie did it, thereby lending credibility to the myth that he is innocent. He BOASTED about killing those people. And all the moonbats that swear that Williams is innocent and promise to prove it, I ask "where were you during the last 25 years?" A quarter of a century seems to me a more than sufficient span to have something, anything that might have overtunrned Tookie's conviction. But they didn''t find a thing.

Amazing. Simply amazing. Stanley was tried and convicted of four murders. He started a gang that is responsible for dozens more not to mention all the drugs and crime his gang legacy was responsible for. And when, after 25 years he is put to death, the liberals call Arnold Schwarzenegger a cold-blooded murderer, and say this country has no morality or soul. Albert Owens, Yen-I Yang, Tsai-Shai Chen Yang, and Yu-Chin Yang Lin might disagree with that, if they were alive today. But they are not because of Stanley "Tookie" Williams.

Tookie to Assume Room Temperature

The courts denied his last appeal.  The Governator said “Terminate him!” It looks like Stanley “Tookie” Williams will keep his 25 year old date with the needle.  I will be asleep as it will be 3:01 am here in the Buckeye State. I will rest comfortably knowing that the families of his four victims will finally have justice.

I don’t understand the Danny Glovers, Jamie Foxxes, and Susan Sarandons of this world. They throw their celebrity/political clout into coddling a murderer like Tookie but never said one word about the victims or their families.  Their brand of compassion stinks.

Tookie said he found redemption. I wonder what he meant. If he fond the kind that only Jesus can give then I will have a few questions for him when I get to Heaven.  Questions like if he was so redeemed why didn’t he ever help the authorities take down the gang he helped create? Yeah I’ll ask him, if I can find him.

In Memoriam: Richard Pryor

Saturday comedian Richard Pryor passed away. He was 65. I don't think there was a routine on any of his albums that I or most of my friends hadn't memorize. Hanging out we would sometimes just say the punchlines and burst into laughter. When I got older and attended prep school I was absolutly amazed at how many wealthy white kids had also heard those same routines although they were very nervous any time they used the N-word. They laughed and kept watching me to see how I would react. Pryor's acting career had taken off and he even had a very funny (very short lived) NBC variety show.

Today I can't condone his style of comedy. I don't find the contemporary comedians; comedians who ironically might never have gotten into comedy if it were for Pryor's ground breaking work, funny at all. They have all the swearing down but they lack the ability to convey the humor of people relations the way Richard did. I view it as a bittersweet legacy and I am probably in the minority in that opinion.
Although he was not the first comedian to liberally use the N-word or the F-word or any number of other once-unspoken-in-public words, Pryor seemed to use them to greater comedic effect than anyone else. When he was at his best he was not just funny, he was laugh-out-loud, falling-down, tears-in-your-eyes funny...

Pryor's comedy also drew equally warm reactions from white comedians, including Bob Newhart, who on Saturday called Pryor "the single most seminal comedic influence in the last 50 years..."

Fellow comedian Steve Martin noted upon Pryor's death: "By expressing his heart, anger and joy, Richard Pryor took comedy to its highest form."
My prayers go out to his family and friends.

Cute Christmas Story

Sarah at The Cleft of the Rock has a cute story on why she only gives each child three gifts. Her son is very quit witted! Read  Making a List.

Darth Apathy: Gallows Humor

Pop over to Darth Apathy and read Gallows humor
Frank Evans thought the tiny blue-tarped roofs, little toppled fences and miniature piles of hurricane debris he included in the Christmas display he builds every year for a suburban New Orleans shopping mall struck just the right humorous tone.

Mall management decided otherwise and told Evans, a landscape architect from nearby Gretna, to dismantle it.
If anyone knows of a link to the video mention in the piece, forward me the link and I will update the post.

Merry Christmas ACLU

Go get as "Christmas" a Christmas card as you can find... something that says.. "Joy To The World", "For Unto Us A Child Is Born", but at least "Merry Christmas", put some of your own thoughts into it, sign it respectfully and zip it off in the mail to

"Wishing You Merry Christmas"
125 Broad Street
18th Floor
New York, NY 10004

On a side note we are developing an E-Card that you will also be able to send. BUT there will be no effect like actually sending a physical card to the office. MuscleHead guidelines apply - please be kind, even cheerful in sending the card. Trust me - kindness will produce more smoke out of their ears than anything untoward you could think of anyway...
Tis the season! Spread the Joy!

Bramage Report

Some things that have been on my mind


It has been widely reported, and commented on in the blogosphere. Stanley “Tookie” Williams is scheduled to die by lethal injection Dec. 13th. There is a big “Clemency for Tookie” movement replete with moonbat celebrities asking that Tookie’s life be spared. Danny Glover and Snoop Dogg head a list of anti-death penalty crusaders on Tookie's behalf. Some are using the Christian argument pointing to Tookie’s good works and Nobel Peace Prize nomination as signs of a redeemed soul.

The way I see it, Tookie deserves to die. As a Christian I am delighted that he may have received Christ and therefore has been forgiven. But as I have said on this blog several times before, forgiveness does not exempt you from the consequences of your sin. We should not lose sight of the fact that he took four lives. Those lives didn't magically reappear when Tookie turned over a new leaf. Let Tookie keep his appointment with the needle.

Bartinelli and Van Halen Split

This really saddens me and I feel for their son Wolfgang Van Halen. The reason being I genuinely want married people to succeed at marriage. Usually the Hollywood marriages which last from a couple months to 5 years don’t bother me when they fail. They don’t know what marriage is about and it is no shock when they dump their partners and trade them in for new partners.

The way I see it, Valerie and Eddie worked at marriage. They were married for 24 years. You could fit 20 to 30 average Hollywood marriages into that span. This could not have been an easy decision.

On a similar note, Eminem is apparently reconciling with his ex-wife. Some reports say they will remarry. I am not an Eminem fan but I pray that he and Kim make it work this time around.

Dr. Condoleezza Rice

Thanks to chrys at pettifog for this link Yahoo news photos Condoleezza Rice

The way I see it, I can now cyber stalk keep close tabs on the relevant happenings concerning the good Doctor.

Churches Closing for Christmas

Whenever Christmas falls on a Sunday something incredibly stupid happens. Churches close. The media makes a big deal about the really big churches closing because they love to point out alleged Christian hypocrisy.

The way I see it, it is not Christian hypocrisy. Because the churches that close their doors on Christmas aren't Christian regardless of what their sign says or what denomination they claim to be. Christ died for the church. So you want to honor Him by closing the church? To all the "pastors" of the churches that will not be open on Christmas day, I say to you, GET RIGHT WITH GOD!

Collecting my Thoughts : FASTER ways to kill babies

There are many ways to find out who has linked to you. Sometimes It is through a blogroll. I stumbled across Collecting My Thoughts from my Technorati RSS feed. Norma has a very nice site (one of many) but I was particularly interested in her post FASTER ways to kill babies She discusses an article in New England Journal of Medicine about first trimester tests for Down's Syndrome (Vol. 353, no. 19, November 10, 2005, pp. 2001-2011). Part of her post says:
This article has the most bone-chilling, sanitized medicaleze I've ever read, beginning with the name of the Consortium that performed the study: FASTER stands for First- and Second-Trimester Evaluation of Risk. In short, you can find out earlier (faster) if your baby has Down's. However, there is a greater margin of error--more "false positives" if you rely just on the first trimester test instead of doing it again in the second trimester and comparing results. It is less stressful, I suppose, to kill off a baby before you feel those little ticklish butterfly kisses in your abdomen, but how do you turn off the brain that knows what you are really doing?

Where Are We Going and Why Are We in This Handbasket Part V

Haven't done a WAWGAWAWITH for a while and I was thinking of just posting happy Christmas stories for season’s sake but then I remembered why Jesus was sent to Earth. It was to save sinners. Sinners like this cow Tayshea Aiwohi and her husband. Tayshea murdered her baby boy by smoking Crystal Meth for three days before the baby was born. The Worldnet Daily story: Ruling: Pregnant Moms Can Harm Babies At Will explains the situation. The baby died two days after birth and the witch's manslaughter conviction was overturned by the Hawaii Supreme Court who claimed an unborn child is not a person!
The Supreme Court of Hawaii has ruled that unborn children are not "human beings," and therefore women cannot be prosecuted for causing the death of babies by harmful behavior during their pregancies.
The unanimous decision overturns the manslaughter conviction of 32-year-old Tayshea Aiwohi, who was found guilty in connection with the death of her newborn son by smoking crystal methamphetamine shortly before his birth.

ARRRRGGGH! As if that wasn’t enough, the moonbats circled the wagons and came out in full support of the ruling.
But House Judiciary Chairwoman Sylvia Luke, a Democrat, agrees with the decision.
"At least from the Judiciary Committee's standpoint, we don't have any interest in changing the current law to allow for such prosecution. I think that runs into a very dangerous ground because it can be expanded to not just drugs, but the state infringing on the woman's life when the woman is pregnant," Luke told the paper. "Are we now going to say that pregnant woman can't smoke or [dictate] how much calcium a person would take?"
Help me out here. Is calcium bad for a unborn child? Sheesh.

Thanks to Scott Peterson though we now have the Mother-of-All-Double-Standards. Women can murder their unborn children without fear of prosecution. But let someone else harm the child or the mother in such a way as to kill the unborn child then that person can and will be charged.
Also known as "Laci and Conner's Law," the measure was enacted in the wake of the murder of Laci Peterson of Modesto, Calif., and her unborn son. Laci's husband, Scott Peterson, was convicted of murder and is currently on death row.
In June, Gerardo Flores of Texas was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life in prison after kicking his pregnant girlfriend repeatedly in the stomach to cause her to lose the couple's twins. The girlfriend, Erica Basoria, did not want the babies to be born and allowed Flores to kick her, but she was not charged with any wrongdoing by the state of Texas.
So mothers-to-be can self-abort their children at will up to and even after the child is born. Anyone who decides to help her (who isn’t an abortion doctor or legislator) will do serious time. Oh what special times we live in.

Once More Into the Breach: My Father Worked at Wal-Mart

I found this at The New Blog Carnival Showcase hosted by Steve the Pirate (Yours Truly will be hosting NBCS the week of Dec 19th!) The blog is Once More Into the Breach and this post, My Father Worked at Wal-Mart shows a side of Wal-Mart that many people don't want you to see. Sam Walton was a professing Christian. I think Wal-Mart's problems stem from that association more than ruthless business practices.

Mr. Murtha Please Shut Up Already

The AP service is reporting (happily I'm sure) as a "TOP NEWS" item that Rep. Murtha Says Army Is 'Broken, Worn Out' Murtha said:
Most U.S. troops will leave Iraq within a year because the Army is "broken, worn out" and "living hand to mouth
Wow. Given what we have accomplished with a broken, worn out military; imagine what we could accomplish with a fixed, renewed and invigorated army. Shouldn’t the democrats, if they, as they claim, support our troops, encourage the “fixing and renewing” of our army? That would certainly speed up things and bring a quicker end to the war.
Murtha also commented on President Bush's statement that the troops would come home after victory has been achieve and not according to some artificial deadline set by politicians.
Murtha predicted most troops will be out of Iraq within a year.

"I predict he'll make it look like we're staying the course," Murtha said, referring to Bush. "Staying the course is not a policy."

Okay I will have to agree with Murtha on one point.
Staying the course is NOT a policy. But no one ever said it was. Attacking terrorism away from American soil is a policy. Staying the course is the logical continuance of that policy. You don't quit when the job is half finished. You quit when the job is done.

The AP article continues with
Murtha, 73, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, expressed pessimism about Iraq's stability and said the Iraqis know who the insurgents are, but don't always share that information with U.S. troops. He said a civil war is likely because of ongoing factionalism among Sunni Arabs, and Kurds and Shiites.

He also said he was wrong to vote to support the war.
Well John, everybody makes mistakes. Yours was not in supporting the war years ago, yours is in changing your mind now about what you did years ago. But congratulations. You have set a precedent that I am sure will encourage Democrats all over the country. I expect a lot of Dems to come out during the 2006 election campaign claiming "I was wrong to vote for the war when I did." Now they can be Pro war when it started and against the war now. It is the perfect "Talking Out of both Sides of My Mouth" campaign tactic. Too bad it backfired for that other John, what was his name... Kerry?
