Re: Random Thoughts Again

I just watched Semi Pro again. I'm not going to say that it should have beaten out No Country For Old Men for Best Picture that year (2008) because that's a great flick, too. I just don't get how it wasn't nominated. And, how did it not win Best Original Screenplay? This is why I don't watch award s...

Re: Politics

It's grotesque, to put it bluntly. Agree. I'm getting really tired of the Nazi and Hitler comparisons. I thought ripping those kids from their parents like that was immoral but it wasn't on level with what the Nazis did. It wasn't close. The conditions were not perfect but they did not reach the le...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Gun industry sees banks as new threat to 2nd Amendment I have mixed feelings on what the banks are doing here. But, what I'm really enjoying in this is that many of the same people who were champions of "individual freedom" that championed the rights of pharmacists to not fill prescriptio...

Re: Politics

Automation is a bigger threat to our workforce than foreign labor. Much bigger. Coal mining jobs, steal manufacturing jobs, car manufacturing jobs - most of those jobs are going the way of the Dodo. Along with cashiers, truck drivers, and even a lot of engineering type jobs. We are rapidly heading t...

Re: Politics

The irony of his complaints is there are plenty of "foreign" cars built here in the US. BMW is heavily invested in the US market. But, you'd never know that listening to Trump. Maybe he knows something I don't but it seems really odd we are cozying up with countries that despise us and pis...

Re: Politics

I guess it depends on how you define "unfair". We seemed to be doing just fine with Europe. Trump seems to think that trade is a zero-sum game, and if we aren't exporting more than we import we are "losing". He also seems to be angling to bring back manufacturing jobs to the US, ...

Re: Politics

The EU and India have officially joined China with putting in tariffs on goods coming from the US. Trump says if the EU doesn't lift these new tariffs he's going to target European car manufacturers and put a tarrif on them that basically renders them unsellable in the US (something like 25%). He is...

Re: Politics

No idea how that happened. It's inexecusable. Regarding the drugging of kids - that is not the result of bad hiring. That was a decision that came from somewhere. People making $10/hour didn't show up with expensive drugs to give to kids to keep them contained. That was someone up high making a deci...

Re: Politics

Sorry to double post, but one other point on this: I think what the Trump administration did here was immoral and inhumane. But, I don't believe for one second that the Trump team was looking to have children abused or was more likely to abuse children than the Obama administration. If that's what y...
