When I did my post on Overcoming the Odds, inspiring movies I can't believe I forgot this gem of a movie. Dreamer is a wonderful movie for the whole family. My oldest daughter and I went and saw it at the movie theater and recently rented it and watched it again. It is so good and will make you cry. I love Kurt Russell and Elisabeth Shue as actors and they do a wonderful job in this. Dakota Fanning is adorable and does a superb job. It is definitely an inspirational movie about a family down on their luck who overcome the odds.
Ann Coulter's column this week does a really good job of backing up my Tom Delay post. If you haven't checked it out yet go here.
It's a good thing Calvin's parents and teacher were on top of his antics. Otherwise with this thinking he would've grown up to be a liberal :-).
Quote of the week: "What is a moderate interpretation of [the Constitution}? Halfway between what it says and halfway between what you want it to say?" --Justice Antonin Scalia
Go check out this great commercial that I found at Jimmyb's site.
Found this over at Nick's site:
Charlie Daniels once said, “In my life, I have set two beliefs in stone. The first being that the lowest form of life is a child molester.” And in his song, Simple Man, which he sings at his concerts after making that statement, good ole Charlie declares, “As for as I’m concerned, there ain’t no excuse for the rapin’ and killin’ and child abuse, but I got a way to put an end to all of that mess. You just take them rascals out in the swamp, put them on their knees and tie ‘em to a stump, let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest!”
Amen. We need to put more priority towards protecting our children and punishing their attackers and less emphasis on “rehabilitating” child predators, though I’m sure the ACLU would beg to defer.
Oh, and incase you're wondering Charlie's second belief set in stone, "The only good terrorist is a DEAD terrorist!"
