In addition to recent questions that a sign on a Perry family hunting lodge may indicate the candidate is racist, DallasBlog.com claims Obama is "spreading rumors that... Perry is a so-called puppet of a leftist globalist community... intent on one world government. Obama is hoping these rumors can keep Tea Party members from supporting Perry if he receives the Republican nomination."

The crowded backdrops of Star Wars movies aren’t just populated by Frank Oz puppets, interns, and robots in Rick Baker makeup: There are genuine stars (and famous directors) running around there! We’ve pinpointed nine folks who made cameos in Star Wars films, and I’m willing to bet you couldn’t catch most of these players upon first viewing. Sofia Coppola is practically hiding. A few years prior to landing Cheers, the Pixar mainstay bundled up to play the deck officer Bren Derlin in The Empire Strikes Back.

10 Cities in the Sights of Deadly Volcanoes

9 Celebrities Who Look Like Chaz Bono
Much to the chagrin of many viewers, Chaz Bono (formerly Chastity) made his appearance on Dancing With The Stars this week. A firestorm of controversy erupted when the transgender star was announced as a member of this season’s cast with some devoted viewers boycotting the program, and others applauding the casting. We here at Screen Junkies don’t watch the show because we were naturally blessed with two hype feet and fly off into a rage whenever we hear the voice of Tom Bergeron. Therefore, we don’t really have an opinion on this matter beyond, “What’s the big deal?”
10 Longest Animal Lifespan in the Absence of Human Interference
We as human beings are accustomed to being the most important species on this Earth.

5 Remakes of Bad Stephen King Adaptations That Should Get Fast Tracked
Right now, studios are attempting to tackle an adaptation of the Stephen King fantasy series Dark Tower (which will include three movies and a television series) and a big-screen remake of the thousand-plus page epic The Stand. These ridiculous projects got me thinking: instead of attacking windmills, why not remake some of the total clunkers were based on King’s stories? If we’re going to be inundated with remakes, it’d at least to be nice to see movies that make good on potential where others failed. And I’d certainly prefer these remakes to new versions of all of my favorite ’70s horror movies. Fortunately, Hollywood and I are on the same page. Sorta! Several of these projects are already somewhere in very early development. So drop the inevitable Rosemary’s Baby remake, Hollywood, and get going on these.
The Ones That Didn’t Make It: 6 Windows’ Failed Rivals
Microsoft shipped Windows 1.0 on November 20th, 1985. Twenty-five years and two days later, it’s not just hard to remember an era in which Windows wasn’t everywhere–it’s also easy to forget that it wasn’t a given that it would catch on, period. The company had announced the software in November of 1983, before most PC users had ever seen a graphical user interface or touched the input device known as a mouse. But by the time Windows finally shipped two years later, after a series of embarrassing delays, it had seemingly blown whatever first-mover advantage it might have had. At least four other major DOS add-ons that let users run multiple programs in “windows” had already arrived.
10 Comparisons Between The Jetsons and Modern Technology
For those of us who grew up watching The Jetsons back in the 60's – and to a lesser extent, the generation who were introduced to the space-age animated sitcom during its second run in the 80's – there was a starry-eyed wonderment at what the future truly held for us. Set in the mid-21st century, The Jetsons cartoon boasted a bevy of technological marvels. So now that we’re well into the new millennium, how are things stacking up for us? Let’s have a look at 10 comparisons between “then” and now.
10 Global Businesses that Worked With the Nazis
It’s scary just how efficient the Nazis were at directing an entire country, including its population and industry, towards their evil goals. Everyone knows about the big three corporations that worked with the Nazis. Hugo Boss designed the intimidating uniforms of the SS (as well as the drabber brown shirts of the SA and the the Hitler Youth); Volkswagen designed the Beetle at Hitler’s behest and churned them out using slave labor; and IBM designed the punch cards that were used to systematize the extermination of people by race and class. However, these weren’t the only companies that acted in collusion with the Nazis — other global businesses still recognizable today also sold their souls to the devil in different ways — and you might be surprised at some of the names that are to follow.
