Pacific Rim 2

I thought the first one was so stupid that I was pretty immune to the stupidity of this one going in. I like watching Eastwood, though.

167644 We're heading back to the moon. This comes on the heels of a Russian announcement that they are going to verify the moon landings from the 50s/60s. Coincidence? Is this now a race to plant evidence? :D My understanding is that the flag we planted would now be completely bleached white by the...

It's become pretty clear the the ones in the caravan really aren't interested into assimilating and becoming Americans.

2016 General Election Thread

166725 I'm telling you, shit's not as bad as the MSM, pundits, celebs, Ds, and Rs make it sound. People aren't motivated to vote when stuff is ok in their life. That being said: I'm disappointed to see Colorado on this list. Every single voter in the state gets a ballot mailed to them to fill in an...

The First Trump term.

167431 You cannot make this shit up... Dems going after Ivanka to ensure she didn't break federal laws with her emails. I think there should be consequences for what Ivanka did, if she was in violation of the rules. However, using a private account with a public service is a far cry from using a pr...

True. She's getting plain enough that her lack of proper attitude is a detriment.

I wasn't aware of the Sean Penn thing either.

MidTerm Elections

I feel like people are already inherently invested in their country. I'd say they are inherently invested in what they get from their country. The merit of the land owner rule was that they were the only ones with "skin in the game" as it were since there was no income tax. Now that there...

Annihilation (2018)

This was one of those films where it takes a couple of days to really decide if you liked it or not. Director was heavily influenced by Stanley Kubrick, it seems. I think Portman's hotness is dropping faster than it should with age. Not sure what it is, but I think she's getting plain.

167297 If you don't know how to properly fill out a fucking ballot, you shouldn't be allowed to vote. Hmmm. Part of me agrees, but most of me thinks it should be as easy as possible, which isn't quite the case. I tend to think the "easy as possible" route gives us poor results. Compare HU...

167102 How can a reporter be a dissenting viewpoint, when their job is to record and convey facts, impartially. Maybe when told to give up the mic when you're an invited guest, you give up the fucking mic. I was amazed that Trump was the one that was reasonable in that exchange. He said three or fo...

166701 I hate Republicans, but I currently feel compelled to vote for them strictly out of a sense of self preservation. Liberals on CNN are already saying I'm a bigger threat to this country than Islam. Gridlock 2018! I'm okay with that also. Though to be honest, Republicans have had the Senate, H...

I had zero issues with that ad. Liberals are throwing a fit and even fussing at Jake Tapper and telling him to remove it. Why? If it was actually that damaging to Trump and the Republicans, why take it down? They want it down because it's an effective ad. I hate Republicans, but I currently feel com...

More proof "environmentalists" are fill of shit

166690 The biggest problem continues to be Asia. Shark fin, tiger penis, whale whatever, and so on are all highly desired in the Asian culture. Something needs to change there. Just saw that China is opening up the sale of Rhino horns and... something else. Maybe tusks. But voodoo magic animal parts.

More proof "environmentalists" are fill of shit

Nobody with an ounce of sense could argue that we don't have an overall negative effect on the animal kingdom, but there's no reason it can't become a net positive. It just takes a bit more effort than "kill and eat whatever we want". Capitalism is the best cure for that. As with the abov...

166277 Speaking of the environment, this is infuriating. Oil spill has been going on since 2004. Maybe move fixing this a bit up your "to do" list? It looks bad, but I'd need more data. This is raw crude. It happens a lot in nature where shifts in the tectonic plates cause raw crude oil t...

Islam - the thread of peace and tolerance

2 - "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" - This I'm a little unclear on. Are you subject to the jurisdiction of a country you are in illegally? I feel like the answer is yes, but doesn't that also mean you shouldn't be there? (Ah, after reading, I see that this was to exclude diplomats, ...
