Missouri poacher ordered to repeatedly watch ‘Bambi’

Missouri poacher ordered to repeatedly watch Bambi

OZARKS, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri poacher has been ordered to repeatedly watch the movie “Bambi” as part of his sentence in a scheme to illegally kill hundreds of deer.

David Berry Jr. was ordered to watch the Disney classic at least once a month during his year-long jail sentence in what conservation agents have called one of the largest deer poaching cases in state history, the Springfield News-Leader reports .

“The deer were trophy bucks taken illegally, mostly at night, for their heads, leaving the bodies of the deer to waste,” said Don Trotter, the prosecuting attorney in Lawrence County.

Berry, his father, two brothers and another man who helped them had their hunting, fishing and trapping privileges revoked temporarily or permanently. The men have paid a combined $51,000 in fines and court costs — but the judge ordered a special addition to Berry’s sentence for illegally taking wildlife.

Court records show he was ordered by Lawrence County Judge Robert George to “view the Walt Disney movie Bambi, with the first viewing being on or before December 23, 2018, and at least one such viewing each month thereafter” while at the county jail.

Berry was also sentenced to 120 days in jail in nearby Barton County for a firearms probation violation.

His father, David Berry Sr., and his brother, Kyle Berry, were arrested in August after a nearly nine-month investigation that also involved cases in Kansas, Nebraska and Canada. The Missouri Department of Conservation said information from the investigation led to 14 Missouri residents facing more than 230 charges in 11 counties.

Investigators say David Berry Sr.’s other son, Eric Berry, was later caught with another person spotlighting deer, where poachers use light at night to make deer pause and easier to hunt.

The investigation into the Berrys began in late 2015, when the conservation agency received an anonymous tip about deer poaching in Lawrence County.

Kristy Swanson’s reaction to Rob Reiner is an instant classic

Kristy Swansons reaction to Rob Reiner is an instant classic

Actress Kristy Swanson has been known for slaying vampires among her many Hollywood endeavors. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress demonstrated she didn’t need Luke Perry to save her from the evil hordes in the 1992 movie that launched a successful television series. Today, she’s slaying a different kind of vampire as the evil Hollywood hordes of progressives express their Trump Derangement Syndrome on a daily basis.

Her latest kick in the face came at the expense of director Rob Reiner.

The 72-year-old Hollywood icon who brought us This is Spinal Tap and A Few Good Men has been on a tear recently with unhinged Tweets condemning the very existence of President Trump. When faced with so much hatred, reasoning with them is impossible. Sometimes, you just have to smack them back to reality and hope they come out of their hate-driven stupor.

With Hollywood rife with radical progressives who promote socialism (as long as their money is safe), open borders (as long as nobody crosses their fences), and gun control (as long as they have armed security), seeing people like Swanson hit back is refreshing.

XFL unveils teams. Names great. Logos not so much.

XFL unveils teams Names great Logos not so much

The team names are in for Vince McMahon’s XFL, his response to the NFL’s growing dissatisfaction. Before today, the cities were announced in rather large markets, signaling a direct confrontational strategy with the NFL in multiple markets, though in a different portion of the year. The emerging league unveiled its team names and logos this afternoon. The Team names overall seem to be well-received. The logos, in contrast reveal a certain lacking of creativity. The team names and logo judgement are as follows

Dallas Renegades

The logo looks like it came out of a create a team mode on Madden. Not really a fan of the name because a renegade is basically a deserter. Outlaws would have been a better word choice and would sound better because its four syllables, not five.

Houston Roughnecks

This is an excellent team name that pays homage to the community around it. The logo resembles the Houston Oilers, in that they are the same thing, though Roughnecks is more colloquial and blue collar sounding. Overall solid.

LA Wildcats

Hate the team name. It’s 2019 and your team name is the Wildcats? I would joke with my wife when filling out NCAA March Madness brackets about how many Wildcats there were, Kentucky, Villanova, etc. The logo I understand because of the marketability.

New York Guardians

Fantastic name and logo. It kind of has a superhero feel while at the same time a Gothic gargoyle vibe.

St. Louis Battle Hawks

Points for originality. War Eagle was taken. Bird are too generic, but they spiced it up a little bit

Seattle Dragons

It’s risky to go with dragons and pull it off. I think the Seattle Dragons fall short. This logo has also garnered criticism for similarities to UAB.

Tampa Bay Vipers

The logo is a “V” depicting a snake’s eye. Clever, simple, original enough. No complaints. The reptile community is well represented in the XFL.

DC Defenders

The alliteration is the only reason I like this team name. Washington DC does not have a proud military history, getting burned down during the War of 1812, in which the subsequent Battle of Baltimore saved the union. DC Swamp or DC Debt would have paid more accurate respects to the community. better. So again, I don’t get it, but the alliteration works extremely well.

Final Thoughts

That’s the quick rundown of the eight teams the XFL has announced. Compared to the failed AAF, I do not like the team names or logos early as much. The choice naming of the San Antonio Commanders was enough to make me a fan. The Fleet, Apolllos, Hotshots, and Iron were also well-crafted team names. Comparatively, the XFL is generic. But keep in mind the NFL has it’s fair share of bad team names with bad or dull logos. To list a few: Browns, Jets, Giants, Packers. Major League Baseball is also unimmune. So we need to remove the bias that gives the existing team names we have grown accustom to a relative free pass.

The AFF had great team names and great football, but the XFL doesn’t exceed this, but at least they don’t plan to dump scarce money into a failed app. Overall, this announcement was enough to give the league added legitimacy in its daunting quest to challenge the NFL.

Stop blaming Sony for Spider-Man debacle. It’s Disney’s fault, folk.

Stop blaming Sony for Spider-Man debacle Its Disneys fault folk

The Twitterverse is all aflutter over Sony and Disney’s inability to make a new deal that would allow Spider-Man to continue being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nearly every fanboy is outraged at Sony, but this outrage is completely misplaced. It was Disney’s greed that got in the way.

Sony wanted to continue the current deal that brought Spider-Man’s two recent solo-films to the big screen. They were madly successful as star Tom Holland became widely acclaimed as having the best portrayal Spider-Man. But Disney didn’t like the deal because it kept most of the profits in Sony’s hands.

Marvel knew going in that they’d play second fiddle to Sony on all Spider-Man movies. They chose to make the deal for the sake of the MCU and it worked wonders for both companies. But Disney got greedy.

Spider-Man Out of the MCU: Marvel, Sony Can’t Reach Deal

A dispute at the top levels of both companies has essentially resulted in Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige being nixed from future Spider-Man projects, according to Deadline. Disney had asked for a 50/50 co-financing agreement between the two studios on future Spider-Man films. Again according to Deadline’s sources, Sony turned that offer down. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement similar to the terms that dictated the first two Spider-Man MCU films, such that Disney would only receive 5% of first dollar gross. Disney refused that deal.

Sony wanted to keep the deal they both agreed to from the beginning. Disney’s the one who got greedy. Blaming Sony for this is like blaming a divorce on the person who was cheated on. It’s Disney who’s being unfaithful to Sony… and fans.
