During the O-Nauguration, I Was Screening This

By Debbie Schlussel
I was away for the late morning and early afternoon, screening the new animated 3D movie, “Coraline.” I missed the O-Nauguration, but it looks like I made the right decision. I’m prohibited from posting my review until the day it debuts (February 6th). But WOW! Here’s the trailer (if the mother sounds familiar, it’s because she’s voiced by Teri Hatcher of “Desperate Housewives”), which simply doesn’t do it justice:


Stay tuned for my complete review.

Hi Debbie! I hadn’t evan heard about this movie before! It looks really interesting and I can’t wait to read your review! Do you know what it’s rated? Anyway, I don’t normally like cartoons or animated movies but it looks fun.

Debbie, I watched it for you so you won’t have to review it. A flubbed oath, a mediocre speech, a poetry reading no one understood and a blame the whitey benediction by the Rev. Lowry. Actually, I skipped the poetry reading and the benediction. If that’s a preview of what the next four years under Zero are gonna be like, do yourself a favor and reach for the snooze button. You didn’t miss anything today.
I’ll look forward to your new movie review on the eve of the weekend.

As I was watching the trailer I could not help but think how this movie parallels real life. We all seemed to go through that little door on the floor just as Chief Justice Roberts was administering the Oath of Office …

“I watched it for you so you won’t have to review it.”
LOL, good one, Normam.

Oops. Normam = Norman

Listen to what Melanie Phillips has to say about it:

I don’t buy it either any more than I admire the f*ckin’ Hollywood airheads and low life politicians who helped mess up America to the point we have an impostor President from Kenya!

KrazyKafir, I review the politics. I leave the movie stuff up to Debbie – she has far better things to do with her time.

Gotta LOVE your patriotism!!!
One of my uncle’s friends was stationed in Dallas when JFK got shot, and he told me the reason he gets physically sick whenever anything Texan is mentioned is because they dance in the streets when they got the news of Kennedy’s death.
Guess WE can put YOU down for a hora if Barack is final solutionized by one of your Reich-wing brethren?

Einem, that’s really sick! Just what are you thinking? We’ve been called Nazis for years and worse and yet its the Left that’s allied with today’s Nazis – the Islamists. But you think we’re more evil than those who would destroy Israel and then the West! That says it all.

I celebrated the inauguration today by doing an honest day’s work. Then I celebrated the inauguration this evening by purchasing Ann Coulter’s latest book: GUILTY.
Last night, I celebrated the inauguration by purchasing a firearm (“Every Jew a .22”). First time in over 30 years! Tomorrow, I think I’ll join the NRA.
[TINSC: I RECOMMEND AGAINST JOINING THE NRA UNTIL THEY DUMP THEIR ANTI-SEMITIC, MUSLIM BOARD MEMBER GROVER NORQUIST. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF SPEAKING AT THE NRA NATIONAL CONVENTION, I WAS DISINVITED BECAUSE GROVER DEMANDED IT, BECAUSE HE DIDN’T LIKE MY WRITING ABOUT HIS GOOD FRIEND ISLAMIC JIHAD FOUNDER SAMI AL-ARIAN OR HIS FRIEND, OPENLY PRO-HEZBOLLAH CONGRESSMAN DARRELL ISSA. IF YOU JOIN, YOU WILL BE ENABLING THIS. YOU SHOULD LET THE NRA KNOW YOU WILL NOT BE JOINING B/C OF GROVER AND LET THEM KNOW THAT SINCE THEY STOPPED BEING A ONE-ISSUE ORGANIZATION AND TOOK ON THE DEFENSE OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, YOU CANNOT SUPPORT THEM. YOU SHOULD ALSO NOTE THAT IN ONE OF HIS BOOKS, NRA CHIEF WAYNE LAPIERRE DEFENDED THE OWNERSHIP OF ILLEGAL FIREARMS BY HEZBOLLAH SMUGGLERS, WHO WERE CONVICTED IN FEDERAL COURT OF SHIPPING ARMS TO HEZBOLLAH FROM DETROIT.

Miss Schlussel, Et Alii:
I didn’t watch the inauguration, either.
Instead, I participated in a poll at the WORLD NET DAILY web site, and posted my opinion that it was time to organize an armed revolt to seize the government.
Yes, “Big Brother” is probably watching me, but so what?
When the economy completely collapses, rendering our government impotent, that will be the time to make our move.
It’s the only way to restore the republic, the CONSTITUTION FOR THE UNITED STATES, inalienable rights, sovereignty for states, and a free enterprise economy.
The beginning of this movie, CORALINE, sounds very much like parts of a children’s novel my sister wrote, THROUGH THE SMALL DOOR.
Here’s the URL for her book:

I’ll have to e-mail her and see what she thinks.
Thank you.

Miss Schlussel, Et Alii:
When I checked at the Internet Movie Data Base web site, I found the author of CORALINE is Neil Gaiman, who lives in England.
When I checked the publishing date of both books, I learned his book was published in 2002, while my sister’s book was published in 2006.
Thank you.

No you didn’t. You missed the greatest day of America for many Americans

I bet your Kool Aid tastes great right about now. Just give it a bit until it turns bad, REAL bad.

Debbie, thank you so much for informing me and others in reference to the NRA. I truly wasn’t aware of this and it apaulled me to say the least. I did my own research and ascertain that the NRA is one side and couldn’t believe what I discovered ontop of what you said too. I was a bit shocked since I been a member with the NRA since I was 13 years old.
Yes, I got my first 22 rifle (ruger 10/22 model) when I was 13 years old for my birthday. My Dad is a gun advocate and believes when you incorporate experience, education and maturity that a person should own a gun. Over the years growning up my Dad has given me man guns as a gift and always renewed my NRA membership. In to adulthood. I maintained my NRA membership. In fact in a few years, I was going to do the samething my dad did for me for my son. Since my son shows a sincere interest in guns, hunting (not for sport) and trap and skeet shooting. I just want to wait for the time when he’s able to handle this responsibility. In my household. ALL our guns are looked in a strong gun safe which is bolted into the concrete foundation in the basement. I do keep two handguns in a safe in my bedroom closet. But, needs those guns since I’m in law enforcement. But, my kids, know very well not to even go near a gun if it was on the dresser when I just got home from school. Though kids are curious by nature. I instilled in my son and daughter that a gun is not a toy and should be respected. And told them the damage it could do.
I plan on writing several people in the NRA and will being informing them of what you and I discovered about the individual mentioned in your aforementioned comment. I no longer want to be associated with the NRA until they address and handle this issue. Which means removal of this person and the NRA getting back to its core prinicples. Just a shame the NRA took this path. So many organizations when they initially start have a great message. And then somehow, they stray from the course they represent. Thank you again so very much Debbie for bring this to the forefront. I will definitely being telling my law enforcement peers whats been discovered. And sure many of them will want to have their name removed and any association be nullified from the NRA. And I will ask them to write a letter to the president of the NRA and other top officials voicing their concerns.
What is America coming to. We are at war with muslims/islam and yet we allow our enemies to enter our nation so easily. People in america need to wake up and real fast too. All we have to do is look across the atlantic and see what’s occurring in Europe. Europe is so close to being a lost cause. And they still can fix their muslim problem, but time is not on their side. America still has sometime till we see an influx of muslims voicing and protesting in masses. We need to address this issue NOW and not later on before it’s too late. Many are aware of the muslims indoctrination and how the modus operandi the muslims use. I would hate to see a civil war break out in america but it seems this is the path were going down.
Muslims only bring poverty, degregration, hatred and voilence wherever they immigrate to. They refuse to assimilate to our way of life and want use to change to their culture. Well, it doesn’t work that way. And we definitely will have to fight (literally) for us to keep our freedoms and liberties we so much enjoy. Islam is nothing but a political ideology which is disguised as a religion. Nothing more and nothing less.
The history of islam, in fact, is an unrelenting drive for political and cultural dominance by means of deception and aggression with little or no regard for those outside their faith. As responsible americans. We cannot allow islam/muslims to achieve their goals. Americans must stand together and voice their concerns and opinions. And let the muslims know their actions and agenda will not be tolerated. And that we will fight for what is ours and what’s right. If people elect to appease these muslims and become passive. Then our great nation is doomed. I’m optimistic that Americans will come together and see islam for what it really represents. We’re at war with islam and this is the mentality we must maintain, as well as hold our ground. In the end, I sincerely believe we will prevail over this preplexing problem we currently face. Too many people are fed up with what islam is attempting to do. We have weak leaders who know what I’m talking about, but they want to be politically correct which is hurting us and not helping the matter. It’s time we elected leaders who will be forthcoming and do the right thing.
Many believe an America city or two will be taken out. And if that should happen G-d forbid, will Obama have the resolve to strike back…I’m not too confident in what decision he would make. And that scares me so much. Hate to say it but it’s not if islam attacks us again, but when. Might start out with several suicide attacks at malls and car bombings. Then the muslims will begin to escalate things. We have to decide NOW what are we going to do and the course of action taken. And Obama is all about appeasement with the muslims. Muslims cannot be reasoned or rationalized with. They only understand violence and then more violence. If we instill ultimate fear in to the muslims. They might just understand that. We also, need to make it difficult for muslims to want to immigate to America. As well as, we need to make muslim feel so uncomfortable that they have no desire to move here and the ones already here would want to leave. That’s wishful thinking on my behalf. But, a good tactical move to incorporate. Make America undesireable for them to want move or live here. Sorry for the long post and any mis-spelled words, poor structure. Just woke up and didn’t feel like proof reading my comments. Again, Debbie and all your readers….Thank you for all your excellent insight. You and your readers are True Patriots who love america. And we’re all concerned and care what happens to our great nation. Going to be an interesting next four years. And unfortunately the changes coming aren’t going to be favoritable for Americans. Change doesn’t always mean it’s going to be good. But, then too many idiots think change means it will be benefical and good for our nation. Obama will do a lot of destruction to our nation. And whomever replaces him will have their work cut out for them. I suppose sometimes we have to take a few steps backwards to hopefully make giant leaps forward. Time will tell. G-d Bless you Debbie and everyone else who’s loves our great nation. Respectfully submitted.
