Bad Ronald is Good

One of the greatest TV horror films is called “Bad Ronald,” and it’s so good it reminds me of “Psycho.” It’s about a nerdy, creepy teen (played by Scott Jacoby) who, after accidentally killing a little girl, is instructed by his mother (Kim Hunter) to live in a secret room in their Victorian house. She dies and Dabney Coleman (then a brunette with a full head of hair) and his family move in. Ronald (the creepy teen murderer) must avoid detection by this new family by sneaking around for munchies while they’re asleep. He eventually causes a few more people to die and becomes fixated on the family’s young hot daughters,. He has an unhealthy obsession with fantasy, you see, and when life fails to live up to his fantasies, he gets mad. And deadly.

Why is this such a good TV horror film? Ronald is a genuinely interesting character. He’s nerdy and initially somewhat likeable, and we can see he didn’t have to turn out so badly. His mother’s well-meaning plan of hiding him ends up driving him mad. What’s interesting is how this 1974 film is able to imply so much while showing virtually nothing. We know Ronald’s a perv, for example, even though we never see it. By the extremely abrupt ending, we feel we have genuinely watched the descent of a young man into violence and psychosis. “Bad Ronald” is available on DVD through Warner Brothers Archive for about $15. Don’t miss it!

End The Sour Grapes: Fire Mueller

So here we are, over a year after the election, being subjected to ‘Russia this, Russia that,” after a year of worthless investgations by Democrat sore losers. The country is stuck simultaneously investigating the minusha of Dem. corruption, which was so pervasive and immense. At the same time Mueller is out like a rabid dog to get Trump, though its obvious Trump got no help from Russia in the election, nor did he need Russia’s help.

Rather than get bogged down in arguments over which party was more corrupt during the election (we all know the Dems were), it is time to paint the Dems as sore losers, while at the same time firing Mueller. Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the election. The fact that there was no actual Russian interference to help GOP/Trump means that Mueller is way out of bounds in his current investigation’s scope.

People are afraid that firing Mueller will result in impeachment proceedings against Trump. However, they are ignorant of the fact that this is exactly already where Mueller is headed with this. Mueller is a rabid dog, out to get Trump by any means necessary. Comey and the Bureau were his protoge’ and he old pals. That conflict of interest by Mueller (having to investigate his friends) provides solid ground for firing him.  If Mueller was a legit investigator he would be investigating Hilary for taking Russian disinformation in the Steele Dossier, which she funded.

A couple of fringe Dems already have already filed bogus impeachment proceedings against Trump. Allowing Mueller to wrap up his biased corrupt leftist investigation against Trump will only give the left’s case for impeachment proceedings more credence. Mueller should be fired immediately- for conflict of interest (investigating his own pals and cronies), abuse of power (the Manafort Raid and the Mattis background check were not Russia related), as well as for being well beyond the scope of the investigation. Finally, Mueller should be fired for for ignoring all evidence that it was the left (Hilary) who dealt with Russian intelligence (not Trump), and it was Obama who was using KGB eves dropping techniques.

Firing Mueller will piss off the left, but the left is pissed off already anyway. The left and CNN will want to impeach, but that is the narrative anyways. The time has come to say enough talking about the last election. We won. The Dems lost and are sore losers. Mueller’s probe is just sour grapes and a get even scheme by the corrupt left, in order to save their own asses politically. If the Dems want to try and impeach Trump for firing Mueller, then fine, let them try! They do not have the 60 Senate seats, and have proven to be a bunch of losers.

Fire Mueller. The president has the right to move on past the election sour grapes of the left. If the left and the media doesn’t like Mueller getting fired, they are free to try and win 60 Senate seats total when the next election comes. Trump is a winner though. And the Dems are pure failures, in denial. So this strategy will put the Dems in their place, while ensuring that Trump can move forward with the business of the country. After all, he won the election.

 

Ice Climber As a Life Metaphor

So there I was, at the local Gamers in Control, and what do I see? A cartridge for the Game Boy Advance of the classic 1984 Nintendo game “Ice Climber”! I had to grab it and the game’s still cool! In it, you play some little guy with a pickax who must climb 32 mountains in order to win the game. Obstructing your climb are a number of video game creatures that you must evade or kill. At the top of each mountain is a bonus stage where you have 40 seconds to prove your climbing skills so you can score bonus points and be a winner!

This game is still fun because of the simplicity of the concept and the ease of the gameplay. Its like life, you climb and slip, but get back up again and keep climbing some more! Climbing is fun, for example because the retro graphics of the mountains invoke serious gaming nostalgia. The bonus round is also enjoyable because it poses a real but necessary challenge for the gamer. I just got this game but I am planning to play it regularly until I win. If you have a Game Boy Advance or a Nintendo DS that plays Game Boy Advance games, don’t miss “Ice Climber.” It still holds up after all these years!
