” We’re kicking things off with one of the biggest stories on TheBlaze.com this year - a story that ended up being quite surprising to Glenn and most viewers – Ashton Kutcher’s acceptance speech at the Teen Choice Awards. Wait… why is THAT the biggest story of the year? In front of a crowd of adoring teens, Kutcher gave a stirring speech about the value of hard work, kindness, and generosity. The message went far beyond the teeny bopper crowd in attendance and ended up setting the internet on fire.”

We’re not going to assume that Rainn Wilson’s views on guns and gun control would change if we pointed out that the NRA’s “dead kids threshold” exposed in his tweet originated at parody site The Onion. He must know it’s a parody, right? If so, he’s not saying, and at least a few followers were outraged by this shocking “fact.”
@rainnwilson Hard to finish reading it. Makes me so angry that people can be so stupid and ignorant. Makes me grateful to be Canadian.—

” As long as celebrities, politicians, and ordinary people like you, me, and the postman keep taking pictures of their penises, this will keep happening. It doesn’t make it right—nobody likes being shamed across the web. But it’s hard to shout the refrain too many times: If you take naked pictures of yourself in the 21st century, there is a real chance the rest of us will someday look at them. “
” When it comes to sources of climate change, a handful of activities have the most impact. For American consumers, the current leading causes are energy use in the home, driving and plane travel. Now, something new is set to join the group of worst offenders: space tourism. Virgin Galactic will launch its first rockets next year, and space tourism may soon affect the global climate as much as the world’s entire fleet of subsonic airplanes.
A New Polluting Industry Takes Flight
Space tourism officially began in 2001, when businessman Dennis Tito paid a reported $20 million to take a ride to the International Space Station on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. By 2004, SpaceShipOne, the world’s first privately funded and operated space vehicle, had been successfully tested. Space Adventures Inc. has been taking reservations for space flights since 1998. But it’s only now that space tourism — also known as “personal spaceflight,” or “citizen space exploration” — is taking off on a larger scale.”
A sampling of the genius of Hollywood and the Celebutard world .
“The first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney is on, and celebrities and other notable folks are tweeting about it.
Here’s what they’re saying so far. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments and join the conversation. Check back in throughout the night–we’ll be
adding to the list of celebrity tweets.”
“Woodhouse says Democrats are “trying to be realistic about expectations” because the president is “lucky to be able to devote three consecutive hours to debate preparation.”
… Obama has held more fundraisers during his term by this past March than the five preceding presidents …combined. He completed his 100th round of golf as president by June. He’s met with 25 B-list Hollywood celebrities to prep them on how to campaign for him. He’s mingled with A-listers Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Vogue Editor Anna Wintour. He’s set one night fundraising records with buddies George Clooney, DreamWorks Animations’ Jeffrey Katzenberg, Robert Downey Jr., Salma Hayek, Tobey Maguire, and Barbara Streisand. He’s spurned Israeli Prime Minister in favor of Late Night Bro David Letterman in the wake of Middle Eastern turmoil, which resulted in the death of the United States Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens…”
” And it seems the majority of Clooney’s high-powered Hollywood counterparts are also passing on the 2012 convention – a far cry from 2008’s showdown in
Denver, Colorado which attracted
dozens of A-listers including Oprah
Winfrey, Sarah Silverman, Fallout Boy, John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Ashanti, Fran Drescher, Ashley Judd, Rage Against the Machine, Aisha Tyler, Anne Hathaway, Susan Sarandon, Jon Hamm, Cash Warren, Jessica Alba, Fergie, Will.i.am, Kanye West, Matthew Modine, Kerry Washington, Stevie Wonder,
Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Hudson,
Shawn Johnson, Forest Whitaker, Star Jones, Wilmer Valderama, Daniel Dae Kim, Kelly Hu, Jamie Foxx, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Melissa Etheridge and Pharrell
Just to name a few.”
Mr 99% is beholden to the entertainment industry as was amply demonstrated by his comment of a couple weeks ago regarding celebrities being ” the ultimate arbiter “ . We’ve always been aware of the whole stage-managed , theatrical , phoniness of his rise and ultimately his election but it seems that given his disappointing performance his record is more akin to “Cutthroat Island* ” than “Jaws”.
We can only hope that this box office bomb , foisted upon us by a prostrate media and the morally challenged hypocrites in the entertainment industry receives the hook and is pulled , kicking and screaming no doubt, off of our stage in November . This box office bomb has run on WAY too long .
” John Carter, Battleship, The Dictator, Dark Shadows—add Barack Obama’s campaign to the list of Hollywood bombs shelling the 2012 summer box office. Like them, Obama for America is in the red, and reviews are not positive.
Obama’s reelection is the ultimate studio production, a sort of political It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World that costs millions, features a cast of thousands, and stars some of the biggest names of the day. However, like all screwball comedies, things are not going as the protagonist intends. The entertainment industry has captured Obama’s presidency, and shifted the national agenda onto terrain familiar to California and New York liberals, but unfavorable to the independent voters who will decide 2012.”

“I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks,” Rickles said, and then proceeded to do just that: “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.”
The black-tie crowd, gathered to celebrate MacLaine, the 40th recipient of the AFI’s Life Achievement Award, alternately gasped at the 86-year-old comic’s put-downs and then found themselves laughing and applauding.
