Even the senate banking committee hearing for Jamie Diamond became a battle ground for anti-obama-fanatics to blame the Dod-Frank regulation as being ineffective in its regulating. The irony is the the same Senator, Bob Corker, who so righteously saw how innefective Dod-Frank was…..was the same guns-blazing senator who was opposed to it in the first place.

(John characterizing Roger Ailes)
Did I ever tell you that I, Roger Ales, plan to undermine the role of an independent press by constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased - while - at the same time,
filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by building a conservative propaganda juggernaut in the guise of a news organization.
And then he said..i think he said…hold on..oh,
I’m gunna call the organization Fox News, and its tag line will be, you’re gunna love this -
a fanatically micromanaged media fiefdom where my own far right agenda and personal sense of victom-hood drive every aspect of the operation

The contradictions and the complete tossing around of typical social norms and moral codes is refreshing.

A fantastic movie, recently released to DVD, Lincoln Lawyer was suspenseful as much as it was captivating. A clever twist on the usual lawyer story, instead of having the righteous and morally sound attorney fighting for the rights of innocent citizens, the film turns the tables by bringing us a corrupt and “sleazy” lawyer who gets a spout of morality when he faces his worst fear: unrecognizable innocence. Bound by the law and attorney client privilege, Mick Haller (the main character played by Matthew McConaughey) realizes his client Roulet is actually guilty of not only the case on hand, but a murder which put an innocent man in prison for life, or 15 with parole. With legal accuracy keeping buffs at ease, the Lincoln Lawyer seems to diverge from the minute workings of the justice system and moves towards the clever and righteous mind of Haller. Though at points the movie seems to loose momentum, and the ending a bit prolonged and without closure, the entire feel of the movie was truly enticing. On a side note, the soundtrack of this movie was excellent, complementing the “bad ass” nature of Haller perfectly and just a great listen its entirety, featuring some of the greatest songs in funk, rap and blues. Available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes, below is a playlists of the songs available for free on YouTube. Keep in mind this playlist lacks a few songs, but the albums for purchase contain the entire great soundtrack.
