The article was running yesterday in many newspapers across the country and can be read at MSNBC.com and other sites. This has been a subject of much debate, the week the Star Trek movie came out, the NY Times had an op-ed by Maureen Dowd on the subject.
Wake up guys and gals, Obama is no Spock, not even close, yes President Obama is a Star Trek fan and we all can appreciate that to no end, but the buck stops there. Here is why they aren't alike. Spock uses logic and reasoning most of the time, Obama doesn't, he just pushes his agenda no matter what, like printing money with nothing to back it up or base it on. Would Spock do that? I don't think so. President Obama has tripled our national debt since taking office, in other words he has spent more in less than a year than Bush did his two terms in office. Would Spock do this? I don't think so. Obama baled out failing companies then took several of them over at our (the tax payers) expense, and did exactly what the companies was going to do to start with and laid worker off. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.
Health Care is a issue that needs to be addressed, but at a cost to start it up with money we don't have to support such a venture at this time under the Obama plan, yet he pushes it anyway. Would Spock do this? I don't think so. Obama loves the lime light and attention, children in school forced to sing about him, addressing children in schools via satellite without their parents being present. On the news and TV daily even when he really has nothing to say. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.
In Star Fleet Spock was part of team that weighed options and normalcy the most logical course would be taken. With Obama his own cabinet and people in key positions have publicly criticized Obama's policies backed with facts and numbers, yet Obama ignores them and keeps pushing his agenda any way. Would Spock do this? I don't think so.
At this juncture I would have to say that Obama more or less fits the Romulan or Klingon spy who has worked his way into Star Fleet key position as to try and destroy the Federation.
"Race to Witch Mountain" is a thrilling action-adventure about a hard luck Las Vegas cab driver Jack Bruno (Johnson), whose life is thrown into chaos when apparent ‘runaway’ teenagers Sara (Robb) and Seth (Ludwig) jump into his taxi. He soon realizes his two fares are children with exceptional paranormal powers whom he must protect as they elude a collection of ruthless enemies.
The film is directed by Andy Fickman, who is re-teaming with Johnson after the two have worked on "The Game Plan." Their new movie is scheduled to hit theaters on March 13th, 2009.

What is sad is that this once great weekday block, which used to hold all of our favorite anime (at that time) was shoved into a Saturday evening retirement home to live out the rest of its life to entertain drunks, and grounded children.
Below is a video of Toonami signing off for the last time. Take a look at it, it just breaks the heart.
