Steven Seagal comes down with Gareth Morgan syndrome

You know the one, ¬†‘I’m rich, famous/well known, and people need to hear what I think’ syndrome. The need that they feel once they’ve achieved a comfortable bank account and it is time to poke their snotty noses in everyone elses business and tell them how to run their lives. Don’t do this, don’t eat that…..really this shit gets tiring. The self appointed world authorities on everything.¬†

PHOENIX – Action-movie star Steven Seagal says he is considering a run for Arizona governor.

The “Marked for Death” actor told KNXV-TV that he is considering a shot at the state’s highest office and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America.

The 61-year-old made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County.”

Seagal teamed up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the show that was shot in Arizona and airs on cable TV’s Reelz Channel.

The martial arts expert is a member of Arpaio’s posse, made up of 3,000 unpaid civilians. He also has been deputized with sheriff’s offices in New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana and says he wants to increase border security. – AP

Now, lets see what kind of a political candidate he is, because he was a third rate actor that never won anything except for nominations for worst picture, worst actor and worst director. Read more »

A USAF presence at Ohakea would be good for the local economy and all the ugly women that live in Palmerston North.

The United States Air Force will dramatically expand its military presence across the Pacific this year, sending jets to Thailand, India, Singapore, and Australia, according to the service’s top general in the region.

For a major chunk of America’s military community, the so-called “pivot to Asia” might seem like nothing more than an empty catch phrase – especially with the Middle East once again in flames. But for the Air Force, at least, the shift is very real. And the idea behind their pivot is simple: ring China with U.S. and allied forces, just like the West did to the Soviet Union, back in the Cold War.

U.S. military officials constantly say they aren’t trying to contain China; they’re working with the Chinese and other Pacific nations to ‚Äėmaintain stability’ in the region. Still, a ring of bases looks an awful lot like something we’ve seen before.¬† Read more »
