    Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

    I agree that Trump is too dirty and deranged to continue his duties, but I don't see him leaving voluntary.

    Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

    Forced?????? The only legal process for that is impeachment resulting in a conviction. So again, you have too much faith in GOP Senators.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    ISIS was never 'gone'. But it does appear many people at this forum believed the Trump admin BS that it was.
  6. Isn't this latest 'plan' by Warren trying to get support from one group of people (people-of-color), but marginalizing non-people-of-color (whites)? In addition Warren clearly tries to divide people based on wealth: E.g. that the rich have screwed you people over thus spreading hate. What Warren is doing is similar to what Trump did with his promise that Mexico would pay for a wall. PS: I don't have an issue with what Warren is doing, since we are a very divided nation that needs to acknowledge the dislike and anger people of the various demographic groups have towards each other.

    Noir Alley

    Funny but the TCM 'genre' for this film is 'romance'. Despite the solid cast, the film falls flat for me. But I'm interested in Eddie's take on the film.
  8. I went to the one in Long Beach since I grew up in nearby Seal Beach. Didn't know it was owned by the bad-guy from Key Largo until I read it at this website!
  9. TCM could show In This Our Life. This is the Davis film the Turner scene above impacted. No more sweaters for Bette!
  10. Looks like pandering to people-of-color by a person that falsely claimed they were one of them. Wise pandering since it is likely to be fool enough people. PS: Warren knows that even a Dem majority Senate would never support such a 'plan'.
  11. She caused Bette Davis a lot of trouble:

    Draft evasion

    Sex is an action (behavior) so both homosex and hetrosex are actions. What is NOT an action is sexual-orientation. Sexual-orientation is folly and a made-up social construct. One isn't born-this-way since one isn't this-way, period. There is no 'way'; That being my POV, I agree 'who the hell cares anyway?". Some do and they need to grow-up and get over it.

    So you support discrimination based on one's 'actions' regardless of where or when these 'actions' took place. To me that isn't a sound social policy; instead the 'actions' needs to be something the business observed. E.g. a business should be allowed to refuse service to those that look and act like clowns, but not Bozo dressed up in street-cloths.

    Draft evasion

    I agree that private businesses should be able to refuse to provide service for religious reasons and that the government should NOT compel them to perform said service (e.g. fine them as a way to get them to conform). You're the one that introduce the concept of 'actions'; so I ask again; what 'actions' are a gay couple doing that would warrant a baker to refuse service? None that I can see other than just being gay. So in this regard how is that different than racial discrimination? (discrimination based solely on who someone is and NOT based on their conduct\actions). I guess one would say asking the baker to put two men on top of the cake or two men's names is an 'action' the gay couple is forcing on the baker. I find that a stretch, but hey, I'm not a baker!

    Draft evasion

    What actions are these deviants doing that would warrant a business refusing service? In addition how are these actions different than the actions of people you believe are non deviants? The classic example is overt signs of affection (e.g. making out): most business that will ask customers to leave for these actions do so regardless of the gender of the couples. I.e. they apply their conduct-standard equally. So again, what specific actions are deviants doing, that are different than non-deviant actions, that would warrant a business to refuse service?
