ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

Palin at the turkey slaughter

I almost don’t want to write this, as the incident is getting a lot of play on other sites – and it should.

Still, we just can’t let the incredible stupidity of Sarah Palin go unnoticed. It is not just that Sarah Palin is insensitive – she is STUPID.

Now is turkey pardoning time. This is a ritual event done by the President of the United States, and most governors.  Like the President and her fellow governors, Sarah Palin pardoned a turkey, giving it a good life in some refuge or zoo. The event took place at the Triple D Farm & Hatchery in Palin’s home state of Alaska.

After pardoning a turkey, Palin gave a television interview, spewing forth her platitudes, while still at the Triple D Farm & Hatchery. As the interview progressed a gruesome scene took place in the background. One of Triple D’s employes went to work slaughtering turkeys – not a pleasant sight.

The turkeys have their throat slit, and then are placed in a funnel-shape device while the blood and the life drains out of them. The turkeys are still moving as they slowly die.

Reporters asked Palin a standard question. What made this day so important to the aspiring president?

Palin turned her head slightly to the man shoving the turkeys down a metal death funnel, replied: “This was neat. I was happy to get invited to participate in this. For one, you need a bit of levity in this job.”

If you can take it, here is the entire show.

    OMG! Sorry to leave you hanging. In that article, I was the MC, introducing Sarah Palin, who I thought said it all. I guess Sarah is not enough of a performer to get the point across. She was a bit insensitive, to say the least. So, let me ring the curtain down with the punch line – Sarah Palin, what a turkey!
