Six In The Morning: Dismissals, Killings, Protests, Giant Black Holes, and Communist Muppets

1. GET OUT  Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence has asked a Federal Government-appointed middle manager to leave.

2. MORE KILLINGS IN SYRIA  There are reports of more government-sanctioned killings in the city of Homs.

3. MORE PROTESTERS ARRESTED IN MOSCOW  There have been more arrests of anti-Putin protesters after a second day of demonstrations against alleged voter fraud in Russia’s parliamentary elections.

4. EARTH HAS A TWIN!  I wonder if they’re screwing up as badly on that planet as we are here.

5. AND THEY’VE FOUND MORE BLACK HOLES TOO!  Giant black holes! Also, it’s already tomorrow in Australia.

6. “I WISH LIBERALS WOULD LEAVE LITTLE KIDS ALONE”   Fox News is accusing the movie The Muppets of promoting communism. And manipulating the minds of children in the process. Which do they think is worse? Because, really, who looks out for the interests of children more than Fox News?

  1. Re #6: They are also after Happy Feet 2 because global warming is mentioned, the penguins talk about working together (communism!) and the characters are shocked to see people roasting a chicken (vegetarians!). Apparently any positive message or any kind of actual information (science) presented to our kids in a format they might understand is a terrible thing to Fox.

  2. Muppets promoting communism!? Say it ain’t so! Jim Henson would be rolling in his grave seeing what Disney is doing to the Muppet brand.

  3. mb: No, I think it’s Walt who’s rolling in his grave seeing how the muppets are subverting the Disney brand from within.
