1984 Movies - 30 Years Ago!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, now that we are in 2014, we are 30 years removed from 1984.  Which means these classics are 30 years old.  Just look at all these gems that came out in one year.  I challenge anyone to find a better year with so many great flicks.  I don't think it will ever happen again. 

Sixteen Candles (RIP John Hughes)

Gremlins (Phobe Cates)

Gun Control

Just wanted to post some comments about the controversy of gun control that we are faced with today.  The argument to ban so called “assault weapons” is they are not needed for hunting or sport and are therefore only a means for criminal mass murder and destruction of human life.   However, when you consider the Second Amendment that specifically states,“The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”, it’s obvious the spirit of this amendment was not referring…

Boycott to Lower Gas Prices?

Would boycotting a single gas company, like Shell (but could be any of them) force them to lower gas prices?  Maybe not a good idea to put a stop date on the boycott, but set a certain price reduction that would lift the boycott.
