    It’s a couple years old but based on a true story….of events in Alaska.
    Now it’s
    The 2nd, a sighting.
    The 3rd Kind, a visitation.
    The 4th Kind, an abduction.


    It’s a scifi thriller….scared the #*+]€|>¥ out of me!!!!!

    The side by side video footage is hard to swallow. Again a THRILLER!!!

    Got to get it!!!

  • Mark

    Trent, this is why you are a low information/low iq Obama supporter.

    Missouri is not becoming more democratic, it’s becoming more GOP.

    The only reason why the other states that you mentioned are becoming more stupid (dem) is that more libtards move there to escape blue states that they’ve ruined. But instead of voting GOP, they vote libtards creating another place that the ruined.

    Good luck Age 25-34, you’re unemployment rate is 22.4 percent.

  • Coffee Steve


    I seen a movie called a fire in the sky based on that, not bad, and I will see the one you recommend too.

  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox Fake News does NOT have this yet and they continue to report and distort 24/7….Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul are looking REALLY stupid after they called for a filibuster on the sensible gun legislation which 90% of Americans (even NRA members) support. It’s kind of like going up against apple pie and motherhood–not a good idea. Michael Bloomberg has said he will personally out spend the NRA’s Chief Clown La Pierre and will institute a voting log on how right wingers vote so they can be ousted from office next election…..more to follow….contact Fox Fake News for distortions of this topic…..

  • usa8888

    Right wingers –here is a psychographic profile of your group: mostly white and skewing toward old age; mostly uneducated; many are racists and/or bigots; most are insensitive to others plights and hence greedy; many are religious fanatics; most hate government even though they like getting their Social Security check each month…they also like taking advantage of Medicare; almost all are backward thinking, owing to their lack of education……

  • Jeff

    I heard on radio earlier that a Republican favorite is in Palm Springs today. Cindy Sheehan is here in town to hold a public event. Gonna go check it out. I will send her all your regards…..lol!

    BBL :lol:

  • Mark

    Good luck on that idiot Joe Biden collecting those guns.

  • usa8888

    I realize the rat and most of the right wingers here have very little education and don’t understand economics. The good news is that these incompetent people are NOT in charge of much and so can’t screw too much up. Japan today did what it should by introducing $1.4 trillion into their economy to get it moving. This will help the global economy in the near future. Meanwhile, the UK is bumbling along with an austerity program that has their severely hurt their economy and employment. They are going into their third recession in a short period. When will these uneducated right wingers ever learn that a government economy is NOT analogous to a person’s credit card. I would offer to send them all to college but they probably couldn’t pass the entrance exam….

  • Chriscee

    Obama did make the gun/knife comment..

    As for S.S. I am all for sensible measures to make S.S. fully solvent… but liberals need to keep their fingers OUT if S.S. funds. Clinton borrowed from A.S. to create his fake surplus.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Hillary 2016! MASS SUICIDE!

    If America wants liberalism then they will get liberalism. We are drowning in debt, inflation, high unemployment, low job participation, massive government, cities in ruin (run by liberal Dems for 40 years) and taxes that will go through the roof when Pelosi takes over in 2014.

    Hey, we on the right can only sit back and watch the corrupt, secular, left wing, s0-called objective media and the left ruin the country.

  • Mark

    Cindy Sheehan, a woman almost as ugly as that wookie, Michelle Obama.

  • Jeff

    @coffee. I saw fire in the sky, It was good, but not as intense as this, since it has actual footage at many points running side by side of hypnotic sessions, police cams, and real victims of these events. It’s the type of movie that makes you think about it for many days after you see it….

  • Ratboy

    Jeffie then Dung Beetle, Dung Beetle then jeffie, just like the old days

  • Sicilian Papa



    You are correct O. did make that comment. If PALIN had USA88888888 and the rest of the low-info voters would have heard it at least 1000 times on the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media.

  • Sicilian Papa



    We have a very nice liberal guy named Mark. Throw a Mark 3 on that handle. We have a Mark 2 and he is liberal nut but he does have a sense of humor.

    Cindy Sheehan, a woman almost as ugly as that wookie, Michelle Obama.

    Damn what a bitter man,
    Maybe Cindy’s looks slumped “in your eyes” after her son died for his country in a war she actively protests. Michelle made the cover of Vogue and many others magazines……how about the women you’ve dated???

    I’ve had many dates with Miss Michigan, now if you’re from there you might know what that means.

  • Jeff

    @Jeffie then Dung Beetle, Dung Beetle then jeffie, just like the old days

    Dustin Hoffman played a autistic guy in a GREAT movie called Rainman who repeated himself a lot!! Kmart, Judge Whopner, good driver, etc.

    What’s your excuse?

  • Mark

    Jeff, I think you mean Mr. Michigan.

    Michelle Obama is one of the ugliest ghetto trash cretins in America. Congrats.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Poor Cindy Sheehan, she thought she was important. Once the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media had used her for their prepossess they discarded her like an old shoe. Limbaugh said they would discard her when she was on the nightly news almost every time she showed up to protest Bush.

    My God, that corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media is one of lowest forms of life on the planet.

  • Sicilian Papa


    I don’t agree with calling Michelle Obama names but she does hate white men or she did until she became rich. Using the taxpayers money to take lavish vacations. Not to worry lefties the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media will never let people know her true thoughts.
