There is a cool new movie coming out I thought you guys might be interested in. Figured I come by, and drop a bomb on you guys. You should enjoy the trailors.
This is an effort by Aaron Russo ( the guy we wanted to be the Libertarian Presidential Candidate before Badnarik got the nod.
P.S. I been shooting Ernest T., and he doesn't even know it. Been seeing you in the Modern Weapons/Costum Maps room. Thats a pretty good Mod as COD goes.
P.S.S. Fred are you noticing the rise of Hamas just like I predicted back in our debating days.
Thank G. Dumbya.
Yes, this is another "I told you so" from you pal Uncle Milty.
You should also read Crossing The Rubicon, by Mike Rupert. A real eye opener, even for a hard core Conspiracy Theorists like myself.
I must say though, the vindication sure feels good.

I looked thru the site real quick last night, still need a bit more time to look it over. I wasn't aware of Russo's background. I actually found it a bit contrived the way they kept offering his previous production credits as what seemed (to me at least) as a way to legitimize the film. I'm sure its "standard Hollywood procedure" to do so, but still it made me feel like since he had produced two other films it some how makes this film more legitimate. But that's neither here nor there, more a criticism of the marketing of the film than the film it's self. Which does bring me to another criticism of this film project, the distribution method.
I understand the desire to have the film shown in the theaters, but honestly, unless it is given a wide theater release the purpose of a theater release is significantly undercut. If the goal is to get the film seen by as large a mainstream audience as possible, I don’t think the “donate money to pay for a limited showing” model they have chosen is going to be very affective. Again, at least to me, it seems to be more of a legitimacy issue. It just seems strange that Russo would choose to, or even want to vet a film like this through the typical Hollywood channels. Who knows, maybe it will kick up some buzz and gain a wide release. As things are now, no matter how interesting the film sounds it doesn’t look I’ll have the opportunity to see it any time soon. Which is a shame because I think he has some interesting views (some I disagree with of course). It would be interesting to know how he brings it all together.
But since we are kind of talking geo-politics/economics, I have a book you might find interesting. “Petrodollar Warfare” by William Clark, http://www.petrodollarwarfare.com/. I haven’t read it myself but I listened to a podcast interview with the author and he presents a very interesting take on the economics that may be guiding US foreign policy regarding places like Iraq and Iran et al. I’ll try to dig up the podcast, it gives a good (and free) overview of the topics in the book.
and, it's good to see you around again.
found that podcast
http://mp3.rbnlive.com/Karen/0602/20060 … _Karen.m3u
it's two, 1 hour radio segments.
While searching, I also found another 1 hour interview with William Clark here
http://www.electricpolitics.com/media/m … .02.01.mp3
The first one is the original that I listened to. He starts out with a discussion of the dollar/gold relationship and the split from the gold standard and how it evolved in to an informal dollar/oil standard. Which was something that I (as I'm sure a lot of people out there) was unaware of. The radio program this is from plays a lot of ads and crappy music during the breaks so be ready to fast forward thru those. The actual interview start about 8 and a half minutes in. The first is m3u, which is streaming mp3 format and the second which I haven't listened to yet is plain old mp3. Both should play in any mp3 player including windows media player.
Have to agree with you about the financing, that part is new, and I wasn't even aware he chose to go that route. Hope that doesn't hold it up too long.
Crossing the Rubicon is blowing away all the people who read it. I can't say this enough gents, strongly recommended.
I'll have to give those links a look Fred.
P.S. you didn't comment on the trailors...
