About 25 years ago, the must watch television series was ‘ALF’. It was hilarious then, wonder if it would be hilarious now? Well, we shall soon find out as now there will be an ‘ALF’ movie.
Jordan Kerner, who produced last year’s Smurfs movie, has boarded the hybrid live-action/CGI feature, which is planning to retain actor Paul Fusco as the voice of the furry extraterrestrial.
Sony Pictures Animation has closed a deal to acquire rights to the classic 1980s sitcom ALF and will develop the property into a hybrid CG/live action feature.
Jordan Kerner, who produced SPA’s adaptation of 1980s Saturday morning cartoon staple The Smurfs and helped turn it into a hybrid blockbuster franchise, will produce the project with show creators Tom Patchett, a veteran of 1970s comedies, and puppeteer Paul Fusco.
ALF stands for alien life form, and the ’80s sitcom centered on a friendly furry alien creature (a puppet) who crash landed on Earth and took up with the Tanners, a suburban family. ALF, whose name was later revealed as Gordon Shumway, is sarcastic and has an appetite for cats. He courts trouble with government forces that are on his tail. The show aired 102 episode from 1986-90.

Now who in the world would have thought that the gitmo prisoners would love Prince of Bel Air? Fun to watch back in the day. And why are we spending bucks providing entertainment to these prisoners?
The captives at Guantanamo Bay may be stuck there indefinitely, but the librarian has their back.
From today’s Miami Herald:
Harry Potter books are passé among the prisoners. The adventures of the boy wizard have been supplanted by early episodes of Will Smith’s 1990s TV comedy, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, as a popular way to pass time among the 168 captives now in their second decade of U.S. detention.
“I just ordered all six seasons,” says librarian Milton, a Defense Department contractor who gives only his first name to visiting journalists.”
Most prisoners can watch the show communally “pretty much around the clock. … A maximum security captive, who represents about 15 percent of the population, can watch the show alone for perhaps an hour or two a day.”

Typical of the left. They aren’t satisfied with a boycott, they don’t want anyone to eat Chick-fil-A:
CBN NEWS – College students around the country are responding to the Chick-fil-A controversy with petitions both for and against the fast food giant.
Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy sparked a nationwide debate after publicly voicing his support for traditional marriage because of his strong Christian faith.
Now, using online petitions on Change.org, students from 50 universities are asking administrators to remove Chick-fil-A from their campus.
The chicken sandwich chain has locations on several college campuses as a convenience to students.
More than 16,000 people support a petition to remove the restaurant from New York University.
Still, the numbers are much lower at other schools. Twenty separate petitions against Chick-fil-A have less than 100 supporters.
There are also more than 20 petitions in support of keeping Chick-fil-A on various campuses.
University of Louisville President James Ramsey recently decided to keep the school’s Chick-fil-A despite calls for removal.
“We as a university will continue to stand for diversity and to celebrate our differences,” he said.
Hyscience has the details on this.
According to documents obtained by Judicial Watch, the Obama administration told law enforcement in Portland to “stand down” and not enforce the law against the violent #Occupy protesters … even after the anarchists had already committed several acts of violence and criminal behavior.

The left has for some time been decrying the “disease of false equivalence”– particularly the idea that the pure-as-the-driven-snow liberals could ever behave as heinously as your average knuckle-dragging conservative.
Charlie Daniels for the Washington Times:
This is a place where diversity makes us colorful but unity makes us strong, and when we reason together, it becomes stronger still.
Because I’m part of the Nashville music community, my mostly conservative views do not make me the anomaly or oddity I would be in the more urbane entertainment capitals. As many of my compatriots expound the value system of God, family, country and work just as I do, and as I tend to spend my off time among a mostly blue-collar crowd, I have very few face-to-face confrontations.
Most of my more vocal critics tend to hide behind Twitter avatars and email names, and most of them make ridiculous assumptions, such as if you oppose Obamacare, you want to sit back and watch all the poor people in the nation die, or if you want to see sanity at the border, you hate all Hispanics.
A while back, there was a lady who just couldn’t understand why I don’t think it is my obligation to pay for her contraception, as if it were an American woman’s right to assign her responsibility for getting pregnant to somebody who didn’t even participate. In my book, if you’re going to play, it’s your place to pay, and if she wants to stand at the door of a men’s room at a service station and hand out coins for the boys to use in the condom machines, that’s her business. I’m just not going to give her any quarters.
Where I come from, a redneck is just a hardworking man who gets up before the sun does and spends the day working outside, getting the back of his neck rosy in the process. I happen to think those folks are the salt of the earth… – C. Daniels
Why I watch the women in this summer’s Olympics in London:
Admit it! You also do the same! I love the fact that Brazil is known as BRA! Look at all the women uniforms, all say BRA. Nothing like seeing BRA emblazoned across the chests of some good looking women!
The History of MPAC
The organization is far from moderate.
On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda operatives slaughtered nearly 3,000 Americans in an operation that marked the second major attack by violent jihadists against the World Trade Center. There wasn’t much mystery about who had carried out these atrocities — unless you were Salam al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Marayati warned Americans not to conclude that the suicide hijacking attacks were the work of Muslim terrorists. “If we are going to look at suspects,” he told a Los Angeles radio station, “we should look at groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list.”
Having just returned from the beleaguered State of Israel, Mitt Romney, one hopes, will move Marayati’s reckless slander to the front of his mind. MPAC is attempting to inject itself into the controversy over calls by Representative Michele Bachmann and four other House conservatives for an examination of Islamist influence on our government. As the indispensable Patrick Poole reports, Monday’s scheduled MPAC demonstration was a bust: The group tried to agitate outside the Republican National Committee in Washington, in order to pressure Governor Romney, the putative GOP standard-bearer, to condemn Bachmann and her colleagues. But the “rally” fizzled because of lack of interest. Still, MPAC is sure to keep pushing.
Established in 1988 by followers of the Muslim Brotherhood and admirers of Hezbollah, MPAC styles itself a “moderate, inclusive and forward-thinking organization with a history of fostering a strong Muslim American identity, and combating terrorism and extremism.” In reality, MPAC is yet another Islamist wolf in the “social justice” clothing of the hard Left. Its founders include Hassan Hathout, the former MPAC president who has described himself as “a close disciple” of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. Hathout’s brother Maher, a senior MPAC adviser, is lavish in his praise of both Hezbollah’s “freedom fighting” and the social-justice pioneering of Hassan al-Turabi, the leader of Sudan’s National Islamic Front — the genocidal junta that gave safe haven to al-Qaeda in the early 1990s while imposing sharia on that war-torn east African nation.

The abortion practitioner who is getting national attention for telling pro-life advocates that his abortions help rid the world of “ugly, black babies” turns out to be a prominent Democratic Party donor.
“The doctor in the video, apparently, is an active political donor, giving almost all his money to Democrats,” notes Tim Carney, of the Washington Examiner.
Ashutosh Virmani is a frequent Democratic Party contribute, according to a web site that tracks federal political donations.
In 2010, he gave donations to Democratic candidates and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In 2008, he supported Hillary Clinton for president and well a Democratic organizations. In 2006, Virmani supported Democrats along with his local pro-life Republican Congresswoman, an irony given that she wants to see abortion made illegal. In 2004, the abortion doctor backed John Kerry and, in 2000, he supported John Edwards.
HHS Can’t Waive Workfare
The welfare reform of 1996 stands as perhaps the most important entitlement reform in the nation’s history. Its successes stem from a core requirement that able-bodied parents must work, search for work, or train for work to be eligible for public assistance.
But now, under the guise of providing states greater “flexibility” in operating their welfare programs, the Obama administration claims unjustifiable authority to weaken or waive the work requirements at the heart of the reform law. There’s just one problem: The law is clear that those requirements can’t be waived.
The work requirement was no doubt the most controversial provision of the 1996 welfare reform. Even after President Clinton twice vetoed reform bills, Congress refused to budge on Section 407, which defines “Mandatory Work Requirements.” Clinton reluctantly signed the final “workfare” measure into law.
Fast forward to July 12, when the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued an “information memorandum” to state welfare-plan administrators regarding “waiver and expenditure authority.” Essentially, HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius contends that a separate provision gives HHS authority to waive the work requirement in Section 407 of the welfare-reform law.
Who Gets a Pass?
Using illiberal means to advance liberal ideas is hypocritical and untenable.
Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel recently said of the Chick-fil-A fast-food chain that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.” Why? Because Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is on record as being opposed to gay marriage — as is close to half the U.S. population, according to polls. The mayors of Boston and San Francisco also suggested that the company isn’t welcome in their cities.
Oddly, none of these public officials have lectured President Obama to keep clear of their cities. Yet until recently, Obama was likewise on record as opposing gay marriage. Why the exemption?
Nor have the mayors in question disinvited any black churches from their cities. Yet some pastors of churches with black congregations have been quite loud in their denunciations of gay marriage. Fundamentalist Islamic mosques routinely disparage homosexuals, often publicly, in their literature. Is there something about white Christian males that makes their opposition to gay marriage different from that of their black or Muslim counterparts?
Even as Emanuel warned Cathy that his company did not reflect Chicago values, his city remains among the most murderous in the world. This year, Chicago youths have killed more Americans than have the Taliban in Afghanistan. Unable to stop the carnage, a desperate Emanuel welcomed in Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan to help quell the mostly black-on-black violence, even though Farrakhan has a long record of racist and anti-Semitic tirades. Is the Chick-fil-A CEO a greater danger to Chicago than gun-toting gangs, or more illiberal than the racist Farrakhan?
