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.

Blood Libel!

 

Sarah the hunter

Sarah the hunter

In an attack on her accusers, Sarah Palin has said: “Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.”

Palin’s bizarre use of language is sure to provoke further controversy. Blood libel refers to a notorious passage in St Matthew where Jews said of the crucifixion: “Let his blood be on our heads.” Later it referred to a reprehensible medieval myth that Jews killed their children as part of a religious ritual. Giffords is Arizona’s first Jewish congresswoman.

Sarah Palin’s hopes of being the Republican nominee for president next year are virtually finished by the fallout from the Arizona shooting spree, as she is under criticism from both left and right.

Although there is no direct line from Palin to the suspect, the reality is that she is being damaged by the repeated television showings of her having targeted Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords using a crosshairs image on her website. The footage also shows Giffords warning Palin that her use of such violent imagery would have “consequences.”

 

Once again Palin fails to demonstrate the maturity and understanding to be considered as a viable candidate for presidential office. She has become a sideline figure appealing mainly to the more radical members of our society.

Palin’s chances of announcing a run for the White House sank over the last 48 hours on Intrade, the politically neutral online trade/betting exchange, dropping from around 75% to around 60%.

Even the Gallup poll finds that Palin as a polarising figure, with high negative ratings, even among Republicans.

Goodbye Sarah.

    I take offence to this phrase!
    This stupid woman!She has no idea what she is talking about.
    She’s a menace.
    Why can’t she shut up, and why does the Fox News keep defending Palin?
    Whether this madman knew or didn’t know, it was Palin who put up the gun site, that led to the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords.
