Sunday Links: Rocky Edition


Well, we’ve fought the rhetorical battle of Tucson over the last week, and from the polling data, it looks like we have won.  However, the left isn’t going away, so as usual, our victories only lead to the next battle.  No rest for the weary, I guess. As you might guess, my rhetoric has not changed.

At any rate, here are a great set of links for the CH 2.0’s list of friends.  Kindly visit them, and enjoy the Rocky videos.  I know it’s not classic cinema, but it does show an underdog facing impossible odds.

H/T For the Rocky Theme: Steve at America’s Watchtower.

  • LD Jackson

    Thanks for the link, Matt. I do appreciate it and the effort you put into these posts.

    I was just trying to watch the videos and the only two that are working are the bottom two. The rest of them say embedding has been disabled. Thought you should know.

    • Matt

      Thank you Larry, Sorry about the vids, Youtube is infuriating at times.

  • Always On Watch

    Thank you for the link, Matt.

    I’m so disgusted with how the Left is using the Tucson shootings to further their agenda and to demonize the Right.

    • Matt

      You’re welcome AOW. It is beyond disgusting. It is yet another lesson on how the left really is.

  • Randy_G

    Thanks Matt for the link. It is a lot of work to scour that many great posts.

    • Matt

      It takes the better part of a day, on and off. Thanks for your post. I needed a good laugh, and you supplied it.

  • Karen Howes

    Thank you, Matt!

    • Matt

      Thanks Karen, your post was fantastic.

  • Trestin Meacham

    I have always loved Rocky movies. When I was about 10 I had the entire dialog of Rocky IV memorized.

    Thank you for the link.

    • Matt

      Rocky IV-good choice. My favorite.

  • Steve Dennis

    Thanks for the link and the hat tip. Just like Rocky, we must continue to fight and push forwad, never accepting defeat and we will prevail!

    • Matt

      It was a great idea. So, thank you.

  • steve

    I like the Rocky theme.

    Thanks for the linkage!

    • Matt

      You’re welcome Steve.

  • fleeceme

    I would have to disagree with the Rocky movies not being classic cinema, well at least the first one is in my opinion. Gritty, well written, one of the better boxing movies (which is a classic genre) – I think “Rocky” is a treasure of American cinema.

    Thank you for the link and the effort behind such a long list. One technical note – my link is actually going to Karen Howes link directly above me. Sorry to give you more work, lmao.

    • Matt

      I can admit that the first movie was a serious film. But, I think that was overlooked since the 3rd and 4th film, in particular, were like live action cartoons. That being said, I liked them.

      I’ll fix your link. With these posts, I do it is spurts, I’ll visit a few, record the links, go do stuff with family, come back to it for a few more, and so on. I think I must have got messed up when I came back to it.

      • fleeceme

        Its all good my friend, I was not complaining. Link lists are tough, I almost always forget a blog I wanted to put in the list, or something else goes wrong. I appreciate the effort you put in on yours. =)

  • Jim

    Like Rocky, we have to have a lot of heart. Thanks for the link. You must have found a way to get more than 24 hours out of a day. You’ll have to let us mear mortals in on your secret some day.
