Bubblebustin posted the link to this RT video, mentioning Brandon Raub’s Canadian connexion (watch video). I have placed a picture which you have to click to go to the link to watch it. The lawyer for Brandon Raub, John Whitehead, makes the unusual claim that 20,000+ people disappear in manner of Brandon Raub from the state of Virginia every year, mainly veterans, in this same manner as Brandon Raub:
Last night, Clint Eastwood told an invisible President Obama, “Go ahead, make my day!” I wonder–Is the FBI is planning now to arrest the award winning actor and director?
In any case, I wonder about the number 20,000+. But of course, the lawyer in the White House has used similar kinds of stats:
The more visible you are the least likely you’ll be arrested or detained. It also helps to have a mom on Facebook, or I suppose, a blog.
Possibly related: Matt Bissonette faces possible charges of revealing classified information in his tell-all book, giving his side of the Osama bin Laden takedown.
I used to like Clint Eastwood. Now we know that he thinks Guantanamo is a good thing and that he thinks that the US faces a major terrorism threat. What a tool for the Republican party. What a bubble brained homelander. Maybe felt he had to redeem himself for his superbowl “halftime in America” add for Government Motors, but that speech shows him to be a Republican party sycophant.
@ConfederateH, I loved Eastwood’s film Unforgiven–I think it is my favorite Western–and the film, Invictus, was also very well done. It is very hard for Hollywood types to be Republican–though he suggests that there are some there who are on the right. I don’t disagree with you about Guantanomo, though before my experience with the tax jihad, I’d taken the position that it’s better than executing the prisoners there. Holding them without habeas corpus though is an international crime, that much I finally understand because now I have become a target, our good person from the 30 years at the IRS has informed me that I am a target of the good-willed people at the IRS. Sort of changes your view, when the definition of “terrorist” is enlarged to include you.
My point in referring to the not-so hilarious video of Eastwood, is to show that a touchy government might take his threat: “Go ahead, Make my day!” as a reason to arrest him too. As you know, in the film, Dirty Harry dispatches the punk to whom he says that line. It is clearly a threat against the president.
A doddering Eastwood is the perfect spokesman for the party.
High Plains Drifter holds up well. Clint should have stuck to his metaphorical deconstructions and left the “real” politics alone. Old guys need to know what to quit and when to quit. Such drooling in public is unbecoming. The Man with No Name gets replaced by The Man Who Can’t Remember His Name?
@bubblebustin, perhaps you are right and Eastwood’s best work is behind him. Sad.
The video you posted

is showing signs of going viral. Panic is about to set in.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they go missing permanently. Think about the money that will used to pay for disability payments in the years to come. You think America is already broke, ha!

Someone has to stand up for those chairs. Calling someone a lazy-boy and a lounger doesn’t make you a bigger person.
