Brad Blog
excerpt
Profanity-Laced Missive from Right Winger Sent After Popular Radio Host’s Recent Appearance on Fox ‘News’, Says ‘Would be Happy to See AK-47 Send You Into Eterntity’
Miller Calls America-Loving Wingnut On Air, Man Claims Letter Wasn’t a Threat… [UPDATE: Audio of Phone Call to Man Now Included!]
A man from Centerville, Ohio, identifying himself as “Sock” Sokolowski has sent a death threat to radio host Stephanie Miller after a recent appearance on Fox “News’” Hannity & Colmes.

Heres The Letter

Air America's Stephanie Miller got a death threat letter

H.L.s Take:
Everyday they realize they are losing more, and they become more deperate. The lie is being exposed, and they can’t handle the truth. They are cracking under the strain of reality and showing their true colors. (funny how that letter sounded just like many comment about Cindy to this site that I had to delete)


Hollywood Walk of Fame Star to Dr. Jerry Buss

Jerry Buss gets a star on Hollywood Bd.

Jerry Buss, and Magic Johnson

Dr. Jerry Buss, the owner of The Los Angeles Lakers received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame this afternoon. Buss bought the Lakers in 1979, and has made them into the one of the premier franchises in all of sports. In 1985 Buss started the Prime Ticket Network, which was the first regional cable network to show all the games for a local sports franchise. It was in this area of television that he received his star on the Boulevard.
The honorary mayor of Hollywood Johnny Grant presided over the ceremony, speakers included L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Magic Johnson, & Paula Abdul, who was an early Laker girl, and their head choreographer. Also in the crowd was Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak (who went to the same High School as H.L. Long Island’s Brentwood High.) Former Lakers Jerry West, James Worthy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jamaal Wilkes and the current Laker team including Kobe Bryant, and coach Phil Jackson.
A huge crowd of rabid Laker fans was also on hand. They are getting revved up for the new Laker season which starts tomorrow night at The Staples Center downtown. The H.L. is a big Laker fan. I was there on June 19, 2000 along with Buss, Jackson, Kobe, and the late Chick Hearn, when the Lakers won their first of three consecutive championships, so there was no way I could miss this day (especially since the H.L. headquarters is right around the corner from the walk of fame) Congratulations to Dr. Jerry Buss. Go Lakers.

Barack Obama at Phil Angleides Get Out The Vote Rally

Posted in Latest Stories & Articles by H.L., Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on October 28th, 2006 11:40 am by HL

It was a perfect Southern California day for a Political Rally, The California Democratic Party put on a get out the vote rally at USC, which featured many prominent High ranking Democrats from throughout the state. The message of the day is that the Democrats are taking back California, and the nation this election day.
Lots of people want bush out

A large raucous crowd had gathered and were wildly cheering the speakers who included, John Garamendi, who worked in the Clinton administration, Fabian Nunez, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Steve Westley was there, he was Angledies opponent in the primaries, and had some nice things to say. Angleides and Westly might not have had to have this rally had they not slammed each other so hard in their primary commercials it allowed Arnold to take the lead by sitting back and doing nothing, but that was all forgotten today. The Mayor urged the people who attended the rally to get out there, talk to people, and knock on doors, to get everyone you know to get out there and vote on November 7,

Democratic political rally at uscUp next was the candidate himself Phil Angleides. He talked about running against Schwarzeneggar, and how Arnold is now pretending to not be a Republican anymore, and distancing himself from Bush like eveyone else is these days. Anglelides assured the crowd that Arnold is still a Republican and is just saying what he needs to say for now to try to win the election, including trying to woo his Hollywood Liberal friends with big dinner parties in Beverly Hills.

Democratic political rally at uscThe crowd had been getting more and more worked up as the afternoon went. There was some great old time political speechmaking going on, Angelides, and the Mayor were great at getting the crowd worked up. Then it was time for the main man of the afternoon, who had the crowd in a frenzy, as he took the stage. The Senator from Illinois Barack Obama. He spoke of the time he spent in Los Angeles at Occidental College, as well as while working as a civil rights attorney after graduating from Harvard. He acknowledged that it sometimes its easy to get discouraged with politics especially in light of what has been going on in the past 6 years, but that he has hope and is willing to fight for it. He encouraged the audience to do the same. Once again exhorting the faithful to get out there and make it happen. Make sure everyone you know is going to get out there and vote this election day. Talk to your friends and neighbors. That’s what I am doing right now. The people that read this site are my friends and neighbors even if we have never met. I don’t have to tell you who to vote for, you already know, Just get out there and make it happen.

Movie Review: Death Of A President

Posted in Latest Stories & Articles by H.L., Main Blog (All Posts) on October 26th, 2006 8:36 pm by HL

I recently got a chance to see the controversial new film “Death of A President.” The movie generated some outrage from the right because it depicted the assassination of Bush.
The left argued that like “The Path to 9/11″ this was a fictional story, not only that, but it is a story you have to pay to go see in a theatre, not one that is being beamed into your home on a major television network during prime time.
The story is exactly as stated, a fictional account that takes place in 2007. Bush is out at an event and gets shot. The movie is pretty much what you would see on one of the networks if it really happened. They even use special effects to make it all look real.
Most of the main focus after the shooting is trying to figure out who did it. First they blame those evil anti-war protesters, and then the attention turns to Muslims.
As I was watching I was trying to figure out what the point of this movie was, and could not come up with anything. The audience in the theatre sat in stone silence perhaps trying to do the same. The only sound made was when it was announced that Cheney would be sworn in when he was located, but no one knew where he was, that drew a laugh as everyone could relate to the infamous bunker dweller. Within a few days Congress passes Patriot Act 3, which makes P.A. 2 tame by comparison,
The only explanation for a purpose to this film I finally came up with was to warn people not to do it. It’s as if they were saying: we know you may want to, but don’t because it will make things even worse. I cringed when Cheney, in a seemingly real computer generated scene, gave the eulogy at the funeral with all the swell things he was saying about the war mongering monkey. Then, in yet another interview clip of his insufferable Karen Hughes like speech writer, this time comparing him to God, I did something I have never done before. I got up and walked out no longer able to stomach all the Bush worship. Perhaps that was the point, if so it worked well but the heavy handedness didn’t do it for me.
So it may be unanimous, if you love Bush you will hate this movie, if you hate bush, you will hate this movie. I guess it is supposed to be some sort of commentary on the times we live in, as if we need another reminder.

Pretend You Don’t Know Me.

Its The War, Stupid Monkey

Independent Voters Favor Democrats by 2 to 1 in Poll

Washington Post
Excerpt:
Iraq War Cited Most Often As Top Issue for Elections

Two weeks before the midterm elections, Republicans are losing the battle for independent voters, who now strongly favor Democrats on Iraq and other major issues facing the country and overwhelmingly prefer to see them take over the House in November, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The new poll underscores how much of a drag the war threatens to be on Republican candidates in competitive races. With debate underway in Washington about possible course changes in Iraq, Americans cite the war as the most important issue in determining their vote next month more often than any other issue, and those who do favor Democrats over Republicans by 76 percent to 21 percent.

H.L.s Take:
The only thing that can stop the Democrats now is Diebold, and as I said here the other day, If Democrats lose any of these elections it will be thier own fault for refusing to mention it for the past 6 looonng years. I will be the first one to get up here and say so after it happens.
