What was X-men 2 about again?

I was looking to see what was on TV the other night and i noticed that X-men 2 was on. Here was the description that was given for X-men 2: Storm and the other mutants must fend for themselves after a right-wing militarist invades their school. Now i'm willing to admit it's been a while since i've seen any of the X-men movies, but i would be interested in knowing just what it is that makes the guy right-wing. As i recall he had a child who was a mutant and either intentionally or unintentionally caused his wife to kill herself. As a result he has decided that he wants to murder all mutants. Now which part of this is right-wing? Right-wingers want to murder mutants? Was this guy also advocating small government or an end to abortions? I don't see how any poltical tag can be used to describe him. The first movie revolved around a mutant registration bill. That would clearly be Left wing. It is the left wing that would want to register and know about everyone, as evidenced by their recent national finger print registry for anyone even remotely involved in the mortgage industry.

Bacon chocolate

My Dad recently purchased some bacon chocolate. It is supposed to be chocolate with little bits of bacon mixed in. It lists as it's ingredients first chocolate, then bacon, then salt. It was a nice idea, but it's really not so much bacon chocolate as it is salt chocolate. There are bits of bacon in there, but you can't really taste them, you can just tell from texture that there is something that is not chocolate. You can however taste the salt. It is saltier than normal chocolate. It's okay, i wouldn't say it's better than other chocolate, but it's a nice change of pace.


I haven't posted for a while cause i was busy studying for and taking the second actuarial exam. So that's done i'll try to post some more. i won't know the results of the exam for 8 weeks, but i think i passed. It is multiple choice so you hope if you get an answer that is one of the choices it's right, but if you misread the question or misunderstand what they are asking it is easy to do all the calculations of a slightly different problem and they often put that answer in the multiple choices also. I was going to write something clever/funny about the exam, but i forget what it was, so that sucks for you.
