Re: Everything Is Great Again

Nah, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. It's just a matter of time. As Lincoln said, "you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time." It won't get any better with Pence in charge, but a...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

If Ryan was saying that it's not his job to defend any president, then the first sentence is correct. The second sentence, however, clearly refers to Mr. Trump and should say either "the current president" or "Mr. Trump". If Ryan was referring specifically to Trump in the first s...

Re: Best Original Story 1934

It was there when I posted the reference.

Usually searching for a film by title and year of release will find it quickly. Sometimes, though, you have to search by actor or director. I think I found this one easily with just the title and year of release.

Thanks for the heads-up -- this had been on my "unavailable" list, and now I see I can easily rent it from Classic Flix next week!


It's also on YouTube.

Didn't I say that in my original post?

Re: Everything Is Great Again

I couldn't find anything in the style guides that say that, although I did find a vague reference to "generally speaking". My quote was from the latest version of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Here are 101 more examples of the correct usage of President vs. president in a sentence: http:...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Grammatically correct, as I did not say "President Trump," I said "The president." Actually, no, it's grammatically correct when referring to a specifically titled person to capitalize his title. For example: "The governor of the state is the person in charge." is corr...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

There's no use to getting hysterical every time Trump says or does something. If there's something to uncover, it likely will be. It's very interesting that while the Democrats are salivating over every possible hint that Trump may be derailed, Republicans aren't exactly jumping at the chance to de...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

I am so tempted to rename this thread Lies! Lies! Lies!, but enough tinkering around.

If these planned cuts to meals on wheels and after school programs don't cause a Trump backlash, nothing short of another war will.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

I never saw Maddow's tweet and didn't see Greg's comment until after I caught the tail end of Maddow's show, so I missed the absurd build-up. I tend to take Maddow in small doses. I like her better when she's interviewing someone than when she sits and pontificates straight to the camera, which she ...

Re: Best Original Story 1934

Manhattan Melodrama , of course. For the other two slots, I'd nominate King Vidor's story for Our Daily Bread and Ben Hecht's story (if eligible) for Crime Without Passion . Hecht and MacArthur wrote the screenplay from a short story by Hecht (who also directed) but I'm unable to determine if the s...

Re: List Of YouTube Movie Links

When searching YouTube, it helps to not only put in the title, but the year of the film you are searching for.
