A noble sacrifice if you ask me


If he had waited another 5 minutes all would have been fine.

Too impatient i say. Must have been the drink he was taking.#



With the way they were taking out cities that five minutes could have equaled millions of lives.

Independence Day on Independence Day, brilliant!


What they didn't type is while they are watching "Independence Day" on Independence Day in Independence, Kansas..

The Gov't. watches them. When they Google™ Google™ googles them.. Independence? Is independence trying to dodge the Gov't. in their attempts to $u¢k every last cent out of the taxpayer? While I type about taxes, it is only the ones that can afford to hire a tax attorney or 3 that can actually use the loopholes in the tax code. Then it is these same turds that use our tax $$ against Us while exploiting those loopholes.. I know lets go to College and escape this evil maze/trap. Then We graduate and are looking at $200k in student loans AND $200k in credit because every credit company has a satellite office at every campus.. Can't pay Your credit bill? Then You get incarcerated in THEIR jail/prison..

But Yeah, enjoy Your movie...

You do know there isnt debtors prison anymore right? You only go to jail if you commit FRAUD or a CRIME when it involves money. Dodging taxes is a crime.

For all we know an Danish crop duster could've done the same thing.

But it's independence Day so screw all the other world heroes and their concerns. All I know is I am never moving to NYC-that place has a tendency to get leveled.

And who do You think owns the prisons? When I moved here the jails were run by the County and folks received a citation and a PTA (Promise To Appear) Now that CCA™ (Corporations Corp of America) runs the jail, those same folks are now being "booked" and each booking is accompanied by a "booking fee" and the taxpayer gets to pay this fee.

So I stand by what I typed earlier and appreciate the opportunity to explain My reasoning.

A textbook example of a supporting actor flat-out stealing the show, as is often the case.

In memory of Russell Casse....


Russell Casse is the hero of the 1996 epic Independence Day, who selflessly saved America, and therefore the rest of the world, from complete and total annihilation at the hands of a hoard of alien a-holes. Where other characters merely punched the aliens in the face, Casse kamikazed an F-16 right into their heart after an equipment error jammed his missile system, setting an example for the rest of the world in the process.

Born and raised outside of Elko, NV, Casse joined the Navy at age 15 with the help of a forged birth certificate. He quickly climbed the ranks, becoming a fighter pilot and saw considerable action throughout the Vietnam War. Ultimately, Casse was dishonorably discharged from the Navy after refusing to drop napalm on a small village of orphans.

He quickly spiraled downward as he struggled to adapt to civilian life after the war, and in the late 80's Casse's life was changed forever when he was abducted by aliens who performed experiments on him... sexually.

Casse's recollections of the abduction only alienated (pun intended) him further from his local community and he turned to the bottle for solace. His wife left him shortly thereafter, leaving him to raise two sons and a daughter which were later revealed to be fathered by 3 different men (seriously those kids look nothing like him).

With a reputation as the town drunk, Casse could only find work as a crop duster, and his business quickly declined as his alcoholism caused him to dust the wrong fields on multiple occasions.

As the alien attack of '96 ensued, Casse realized that his best bet was to transport his family as far away from the aliens as possible. Casse's caravan came across Marine Captain Steven Hiller who had been shot down in a firefight with an alien ship. Captain Hiller, carrying the body of an alien he had subdued with a punch to the face, instructed Casse to Area 51 and it was there that Casse volunteered to fly a mission that would lead to the end of his life by making the ultimate sacrifice for the good of all mankind.

A memorial to Casse was erected just outside Bob & Barbara's Roadside Grille in Winnemucca, NV. It was constructed of intergalactic metals collected from the crash of the Area 51 alien ship. The metals have been shaped to depict a one-winged Grumman Ag Cat Cropduster, with the immortal words "Up Yoooouuurs" written on a plaque underneath.

President Thomas J. Whitmore, who fought along side Casse and helped to "plow the road" clear of alien attackers, spoke at a humble yet stirring memorial for the fallen patriot saying, "I did not know the man, but he will always hold a special place in the annals of history for saving our country, and indeed, our planet."

I thought he actually only took down an Alien Ship.

Those who saved the world where the ones who went to The Mother Ship to plant the computer virus.






He sacrificed his life to save the world. Meaning, he sacrificed his life, with the intention of contriburing to the saving, or preservation of, the world as we know it.
