If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!

Re: “Virgin Tales

I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.

Re: “My Little Pony Equestria Girls

This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.

Re: “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience

Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol

Re: “The Fault in Our Stars

Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.

John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.

Re: “Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.

Re: “Star Trek

I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.

Re: “A Story Worth Living

This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste

Re: “8: The Mormon Proposition

Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.


Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.


When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.

Re: “AFA football coach uses tweets to evangelize

Are you sure this is a government-owned Twitter account? It seems to be his personal account. The article seems to skirt around this issue with innuendo.

If it is indeed his personal account then trying to shut him down goes against the spirit of his constitutional right to free speech. Surely this publication is all for free speech.

Re: “Unlicensed vehicles are the norm on streets near The Broadmoor, tickets aren't

Tannim- When you are stopped by police ask them! I know if a person is cash poor and their license plates expire they then are charged another $100 when they finally register it. A fine for poverty. No moey? Then pay more. Billionaire? Forget it, (wink wink). For a police spokesperson to say they do not know if a vehicle is illegal must not have been on the force when Harley owners were being stopped so police could inspect exhaust pipes for the fine print stamped into the underside of the pipe for the EPA legal seal of approval. What department was it that switched their Harley's pipes back to factory from aftermarket pipes and who paid for it?
So drive without those permission papers and then go to jail and wait in there for trial to find out if you are going to go to jail. This is the same society that makes "community service" a punishment instead of a good deed. The same town that makes you sit in your car to warm it up before heading out on a cold morning- totally misunderstanding the entire concept of "warming up". They say it can be stolen if you do not sit in it. Well yes it can and that is called 'carjacking' and it is the police departments job to stop crime. Whoops sorry, I forgot, their job to investigate crime. . . I have seen police cars sitting empty and engine running so why can we not do the same? Same reason some believe police and police only should have firearms to protect themselves... If your neighbor was drunk and fired a few rounds off into the ground and you then came out and shot him fatally in the back all the while he never even knew you were on the other side of the wooden fence hiding would you be charged with anything? Would an officer if he did the same thing?
Permission slips to drive on roads you paid for but the roads never have any maintenance because the money you paid, it's... it's ... well it was somewhere in the budget but it disappeared, several millions gone, gone where? I dunno, oh well, let's vote and raise taxes because everyone wants to give up hard earned pay right? Doug Bruce is in jail so he cannot stop that measure from passing. BUT, If you do not pay tax then you need no permission to drive on roads that tax dollars are never spent on. (The burns in your car seat? Dropped your joint you were smoking creating Pot Holes... I digress I guess)
The Broadmoor contributes millions to the coughers I mean coffers and the rest is chump change from the lower-downs who golf on the no-smoking links but their car does a pot-hole-in-one everyday. Let's trade everything to The Broadmoor! I get dibs on a suite and one of them trucks that haul ass!

Re: “AFA football coach uses tweets to evangelize

The old Christian war phrase was "praise the Lord and pass the ammunition" This bible thumper tight end coach seems to have changed it to "praise the Lord and pass me the ball".
