Film Review; Deadpool 2. Film Review; Deadpool 2.

(Akiit.com) In the pantheon of comic book hero movies, Deadpool set itself apart from the herd. It was ultra-violent, pansexual, hysterical, unapologetically sarcastic, frenetic and broke the 4thwall down with a sledgehammer. The deeply droll and irreverent Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds played the vomit-faced superhero. The script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick took audiences down a dark alley and... [Read more of this review]

Liberalism Is Killing So Many. Liberalism Is Killing So Many.

(Akiit.com) Remember the movie, “When a Stranger Calls,” originally made in 1979 and remade in 2006? It’s about a babysitter who is harassed and threatened by a prank caller who ends up being in the house the whole time. As a nation, we face a similar situation. There is no military on the planet that can defeat the United States, and no external force who could take us down. But we do face... [Read more of this review]

USA Today examined each of the 3,517 Facebook ads bought by the Russian-based Internet Research Agency, the company that employed 12 of the 13 Russians indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for interfering with the 2016 election. It turns out only about 100 of its ads explicitly endorsed Trump or opposed Hillary... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Like all services the government provides, incarcerating the estimated 1.5 million inmates in America’s prison system sooner or later falls victim to the laws of scarcity. There is only so much room for so many prisoners; there are only so many people willing to work for minimal wages in high-risk prison environments; and budgets for all of it are not infinite (already topping $80 billion at... [Read more of this review]


Kanye West and Democrats. Kanye West and Democrats.

(Akiit.com) In the aftermath of the Kanye West dust-up, my heart goes out to the white people who control the Democratic Party. My pity stems from the hip-hop megastar’s November announcement to his packed concert audience that he did not vote in the presidential election but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. Then, on April 21, West took to his Twitter account, which has 28 million... [Read more of this review]

OK, that’s not how the politicians describe their plan, but that’s probably how it will work out. Members of Seattle’s city council want all big Seattle businesses to pay a tax of $500 per employee. In response, Amazon stopped... [Read more of this review]

The Good Ole Democrats’ War On Capitalism. The Good Ole Democrats’ War On Capitalism.

(Akiit.com) Hillary Clinton recently offered yet another reason why she lost her second consecutive race for the presidency: capitalism. At the Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York City, Clinton was asked whether her self-proclaimed “capitalist” stance hurt her during the 2016 presidential primary season. “It’s hard to know,” she said, “but I mean, if you’re in the Iowa caucuses... [Read more of this review]


Cultural Appropriation or Not? Cultural Appropriation or Not?

(Akiit.com) The politically correct cuckoos have flown the coup once again. This week, it was throngs of left-wing American social justice activists who got “triggered” over a Utah teen who dared to do the unthinkable – use her own free will to choose a dress for her high school prom. Keziah Daum, 18, chose to wear a traditional Chinese cheongsam because she thought the embroidered red and gold... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) President Trump needs a stronger bench in the U.S. Senate to get his nominees approved and accomplish his agenda. Mr. Trump surprised the pundits and beat Hillary Clinton in Ohio by +8 points, helping Senator Rob Portman coast to an easy 2016 re-election victory.  But 2018 is not 2016.  President Trump is not on the ballot and Senator Sherrod Brown brings the advantages of incumbency.

(Akiit.com) Point to Ponder: Happier people are more productive, thereby getting more work done in less time than others. Imagine for a moment what it would feel like to work less—if you could focus more on your family and other things that matter in your life. Work is wonderful, especially when you are passionate about it. But there’s more to life than work, so what would it be like if you didn’t... [Read more of this review]
