  1. Jake, please go put on a miners hat and go down in those mines and take in some deep breaths. Replace the dirty, environment destroying coal mining with clean energy. Those miners can work those new jobs, and live in a far healthier environment. And live longer healthy lives with a brighter future to pass on to their children.

    Jake's Trump Thread -- Make America Great Again

    Let's call the "war with Iraq" what it really was, "the unnecessary, illegal , counter productive war created by the outright lies of the criminal Bush/Chaney administration" . Comparing the death tolls between Iraq and Vietnam can be misleading. Many soldiers seriously wounded in Iraq survived because of the advanced medical techniques available today (and a more quick, intense response to aid those wounded), things not available to our fellows during Vietnam. Of course we have a very large number of those "non dead" from Iraq who now have very serious and often permanent disabilities from those battlefield injuries. Which means we as a nation should be sparing no expense to provide for the ongoing care for our veterans. But that will take money, lots of it. And heaven forbid we should have to ask the well healed to pay something more in taxes to help meet those expenses. The oil billionaire Koch brothers for example, they continue to benefit from the oil revenues. Instead of spending countless billions to buy out and corrupt the nation's political system why not contribute that money to the veterans who they (and people like Jake) profess to honor so much? And people like Donald Trump are a big part of that hypocrisy.

    Jake's Trump Thread -- Make America Great Again

    I guess Sarah Palin and Rick Perry weren't available so Trump picked the next best option (Pence?) . Where do they (republican party) find these people? And who are the idiots who originally elected these morons to be Governor of their states? TRUMPUS CLUELESS MORONICUS

    FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton

    This whole situation plays out like the classic story of "The boy who cried Wolf" The long time increasing stupidity of the republicans of constantly throwing mud and making anything a democrat does into a terrible scandal has just completely destroyed their (republicans) credibility. So if there is any real substance to a charge , the general public will just dismiss it as "politics". And to believe the republican line, there is no acceptable way of investigation that is objectionable and non partisan if it doesn't lead their way. That is the right wing extremist point of view that runs the present day republican party. And the few remaining "sane, rational republicans" that are out there just stand back and won't call out the nut jobs. What has to happen, and what I want to see, is the whole party implode and a new more responsible opposition (to the democrats) party emerge. And the right wing nut jobs can crawl back into their holes.

    What Are You Watching Now?

    I just recently watched a tv movie starring good old Andy, GRAMPS. This was made in the early 90's and Andy plays a "lovable" old codger who was long estranged from his son (John Ritter) and the son's wife and little boy. But we quickly learn that Gramps Andy isn't so lovable, he's a very dangerous psychotic who stops at nothing to get his way, including murder. Andy is very, very scary in this one (I recall seeing him play similar characters in other films , not to mention A FACE IN THE CROWD). Maybe the extreme sharp contrast between these psychos and his usual "Sheriff Andy" and " lawyer Matlock " makes him all the more scary in these roles.

    For Dargo's Eyes Only!

    That has to be tough on Valentine's Day, making sure you don't send a "Stefanie" card to "Stephanie" etc. Does Stephanie Zimbalist enter into this confusion?

    Benghazi Committee Report

    Four deaths? And HOW many died because of the biggest lie ever foisted on the American public? The invasion of Iraq, where were the "weapons of mass destruction"? Where are all of the investigations into that?

    Flint, MI & poisoned water?

    Can we run a water pipeline from Flint to Cleveland (just to the convention hall)?

    For Dargo's Eyes Only!

    It's about time you show up, Dargo, after about a couple of million of us have already seen this. It's already old news, ha! (By the way, does the "other Stephanie , Stefanie?? know about this Stephanie?)

    Olivia de Havilland is 100 July 1st!

    You must see THE STRAWBERRY BLONDE! It is one of my favorite, favorite movies (my favorite Cagney film) and everyone else in the cast shines as well. Olivia is particularly entertaining in this, showing quite a flair for comedy and she pairs up very well with Cagney. And even though Rita Hayworth (the strawberry blonde of the title) is very alluring , Olivia's "plain girl" does not let Rita steal any scenes. Olivia de Havilland could do it all, a remarkable actress, I hope she is doing well and enjoying this milestone birthday.

    Nonagenarian birthdays in July

    Who's going to buy all of the candles for these birthday parties? Better have the fire department on high alert.
  13. I believe that if I could make just one change in the academy awards winners it would be to give Laughton the best actor for HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. Interesting that I watched some of Svengoolie's airing of ISLAND OF LOST SOULS and Sven commented that Laughton was not happy with that role, only doing it for contract obligation. It's a riot seeing Bela Lugosi in his get up. They use that scene of his mugging for the camera in AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON (the Carrie Fisher segment).

    Cecil The Lion

    I notice that Jake holds some wildlife in great esteem , as long as its in some far off place and doesn't impact him personally. He doesn't picture wildlife in America; wolves and bears in Yellowstone, Alaska, etc. They of course get in the way of the economics of the oil, coal, timber industries. Off shore drilling threatens all of the sea creatures, but that doesn't count either. Climate chance and pollution of the air, land and water threatens all life. If the oil industry moves in on the habitats of the beautiful lions, tigers, elephants, etc they will all be history in quick order. Ah, just a small price to pay for the big bucks.

    Benghazi Committee Report

    Good old Jake, the number one hypocrite strikes again. Many of his "heroes" like Donald Trump, Dick Chaney, John Wayne, etc avoided military service of any kind. George W. hid out in the Texas National Guard (and supposedly the Alabama too) , and was often AWOL from that duty. Ronald Reagan "wore" the uniform during WW2, but got "special duties" that kept him in Hollywood (and how he ever merited getting promotions to Captain, explain that). Real patriots don't wrap themselves in the flag to glorify themselves or to further their politics. As I have often stated I did not serve in the military but I have a genuine appreciation for those who did serve, and the sacrifices that many made and yet they don't exploit for personal endearment. Pure speculation on my part, but I have found that those who do the most bragging don't really have much to brag about.
