Re: New Developments III

Heksagon, you'll be happy to know that both of Trump's Federal Reserve board nominees withdrew themselves from consideration - one happened just yesterday - when it was clear they would not be approved. To be sure, there will be other nominees and no doubt they'll be terrible, but at least they migh...

Re: Felicity Huffman Criminally Charged

To me, this says you've normalized what the super-wealthy do simply because it's been going on so long. I say, bribes is bribes is bribes. One of the things Huffman (and probably others) are accused of is falsely claiming disability for their daughter in order to take advantage of favorable testing...

Re: Felicity Huffman Criminally Charged

If colleges really wanted to stymie this kind of thing, which they don't, they could just say that anyone who donates over X amount will have their children barred admission. That, said, they won't. However, not all folk who build buildings do so to get their kids into the school. My alma mater has...

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

To paraphrase another movie, it looks like a lot of us Oscar prognosticators ended the season with our eyes wide shut.

Of course I meant to say "2. Black Panther". Rush job. Not that it matters now.

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Sonic, we’re not in each other’s mutual admiration societies? That comment threw me a little. Do we have beef with each other? I surely don’t. I’m sorry if you do and would apologize for anything that might’ve led you there. I have nothing against you and never have. Not sure where that came from. ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't remember it, and I don't know if it's true (knowing you I'd be surprised actually), but if it is, well, Reza - calling anyone a slut or a faggot is obviously unacceptable and, unless you already did, you should apologize. Unlike Sonic Youth, you CAN do that, I am sure. While I hate hypocris...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

As for me being pro-rape, you lately wrote that you had changed your mind and that you agree with my accusers (not in this thread). Even just saying "I am sorry, ITALIANO" would have been more honorable than always avoiding my points. But ok, never mind. No, I never said that either. What...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Sabin, why did you erase your post? I thought you were right on, and I wrote a big response which now has no connection to anything. Well, Sabin disagreed with Reza's belief that "we're going to enter an era where people are afraid to wink at each other"..... Of course we're not going to, ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't know how anyone could compare civil rights... with individual cases Did I really say that? Hmmm.... Yes, there's going to be false accusations, mistaken accusations, and exaggerated accusations. All of this, unfortunately, also happened with every civil rights movement in history. It should...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

As for backfiring on Democrats, I wouldn't worry about it. Women make up about 50% of the electorate, more or less. They'll be fine. And women all of a sudden are going to band together and vote as a bloc? That will never happen. No woman should have voted for Trump, yet enough either stayed home o...
