Re: Everything Is Great Again

It's moments like these that I recognized how incredibly party-affiliated I am. When I read the reports yesterday, I just felt sick and horrible about the implications of what is to come. But then I ask myself, would I feel the same way if Hillary Clinton were the President? I suspect this question...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

How comforting to learn that this went through the U.N. Security Council before implementing it... with blessings from the Pope and the Nobel committee, of course. I predict instantaneous stability, not only in the region, but all over the planet, with Mars and Venus thrown in for good measure. It's...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Maybe he can help fix Syria's healthcare. They're going to need it.

Not to deny that that beast Assad isn't doing his part, but President T isn't a man who likes to be outdone.

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Sonic, I understand that one would like to be more quickly certain where and how high this Russia story is going, but properly executed law enforcement investigations aren't speedy things. I remind those who weren't around, that we started talking about Watergate in the Spring of 1973, and Nixon di...

In other words, we know no more now than we did 24 hours ago.

Re: The Decline of the American Empire

Not that it will mean anything to his supporters, but here it is... http://www.msnbc.com/ It barely means anything to me. A two page summary, the end. I'm sure it's somewhat elucidating to finance wonks, but to me this could be any multi-millionaire's returns. It didn't remotely call for all the wh...

Re: R.I.P. Robert Osborne

Actual conversation I just had.

Me: Robert Osborne just died.
Wife: Hmm... Sounds familiar. Remind me?
Me: "Hi, I'm Robert Osborne."
Wife: Oh my god!

R.I.P. Robert Osborne

A bit of history has died... that is, my own personal history, having spent years watching Turner Classic Movies. R.I.P. to the world's kindliest film snob. (Wasn't sure whether to put it here or in the Broadcast forum.) Robert Osborne, TCM Host and Film Historian, Dies at 84 Carmel Dagan Staff Writ...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

In the end, I'm with Uri: this was easily the most fun thing I've seen happen at the Oscars in a long time, so it seems strange people want to burn someone at the stake for it. Those (most) of you who were way too young to see Sacheen Littlefeather in real time may not comprehend that we used to ha...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

And while we're at it, had the Oscars not followed the Emmy's cheesy route of allowing every single person involved with the film coming onstage for the best picture award, instead of only the producers the way it used to be, correcting the wrongs could have been handled in a far more elegant way (...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Don't be surprised if before long some enterprising ambulance chaser talks him into bringing a suit against the Academy for invasion of privacy and whatever else they can think of for a quick settlement. The so-called journalists who decided it would be a noble idea to look into the criminal backgr...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Why the hell is this even a story? Who cares if Gary from Chicago was an ex-con? Everyone gets a chance to start a new life regardless of their past. Besides, since this was a planned thing, but not planned for who would be on the bus, I hardly think it fair to blame the Academy for not vetting the...
