Spockobama

 

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.

 



The “Army of Two” video game has sold more than 1 million units since it launched in March. A sequel is believed to be in the works. The game is a two-player action contest in which a pair of private military contractors fight their way through a web of intrigue.

Because people experience the game in pairs, playing two guys who go against the world, [producer Scott Stuber] and I agreed this format presented an opportunity to make a great buddy film,” Burns said. “The ambiguity of these private military corporations lends weight to an intelligent thriller with relevance to what’s going on in the world right now. You have contractors with their own agendas, and two guys whose friendship supersedes all the politics. I told EA right off the bat I wasn’t a gamer, and that appealed to them because they didn’t want to simply replicate the game.

This is the third EA project to go the Big Screen route recent months. “The Sims” is being developed at 20th Century Fox with producer John Davis, while sci-fi game “Mass Effect” has been optioned by Avi Arad Productions. It’s another big game title for Universal, which acquired “BioShock” for a film that Gore Verbinski will direct.

Are you glad that Videos Games are being adapted to movies?
