Geez Louise!

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Louise Brooks was one of the most famous and beautiful film stars of the silent screen era. She roared through the ’20’s by popularizing the bobbed haircut, uninhibited dancing, and womens sexual liberation. Louise was the ultimate “flapper.”

Brooks made three films which are classics: Pandora’s Box (1929), Diary of a Lost Girl (1929), and Prix de Beauté (1930).

Although she was a virtual recluse here in Rochester, New York for over 20-years, in 1982 Louise published her memoir, Lulu in Hollywood.  Three years later she died of a heart attack at the age of 78.

Fock You Very Much, America

... thanks of an ungrateful nation ...

In a BBC interview Sunday, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said “the massive 12 year war effort has largely been a waste.” Remember this is the leader of the country for which we’ve sacrificed over 2,000-American lives (3/4 of them under Obama) and on which we’ve spent over  $1-Trillion-dollars. He went on to say,

“… the war…caused Afghanistan a lot of suffering and a lot of loss of life and no gains because the country is not secure.  What we wanted was absolute security and a clear cut war against terrorism.”  Corrupt  Karzai also said the “Taliban is no threat to women.”

Feel stupid yet, America?

I haven’t seen anything on this from our ‘Ministry of Propaganda’ – the mainstream media – but it’s quite a big story in the rest of the world.  Click:
