    Women respond to misogyny and sexual predators with power

    Still behind Biden who isn't even in the race (yet). Either way I still say Harris is the one that the others will have to defeat since she will likely win CA on Super Tuesday in March.

    RIP 20th Century Fox

    Can you name 2 or 3 potential harmful events \ things that will come from this take-over? My main concern would be what Disney does with Fox movies they now own the rights too that were made prior to 1970 (or so); E.g. Disney would no longer lease these films to TCM?????? I'm sincerely interested in what is driving these negative views? What is there to be afraid of?

    Actor Richard Erdman 1925-2019)

    The L.A. Times had a very nice, detailed and long obituary for Richard Erdman. I was surprised since he was a supporting actor; I believe the main reason was due his being on the sitcom "Community", which premiered in 2009. E.g. when Deana Durbin passed a few years back the Times obituary wasn't as 'complete' as this one for Erdman (Durbin hadn't been a public figure in over 40 years when she passed). The article ends with Erdman talking about being a second banana: "In only about two of the pictures did I ever get the girl", he added "Usually I play the leading lady's boyfriend who is left at the altar while the heroine elopes with Cary Grant. That's why I like to act in Utah. I the the girl. In Hollywood and on Broadway I end up in second place". But what a second baseman! The article had this picture:

    LINDA DARNELL for Star of the Month October 2013

    I caught her (Darnell) on an episode of Wagon Trail; She still look beautiful but a little more 'full figured'.

    Elizabeth Warren Pres. Candidacy.....

    Warren is just punking her supporters. Isn't that obvious! You see when the Dem gets more popular votes than Trump but loses the election, she can say 'I told you,,, we need to get rid of the EC'. IF she had faith in the Dem parties' ability to win the election she wouldn't have mentioned the EC. I.e. the comment clearly shows weakness (the complete opposite of arrogant and lying Trump,,,, e.g. Trump saying he did win the popular vote in 2016 due to voter fraud in states like CA and NY). UNLESS: Warren is a complete moron and really believes the EC can be removed and replace with a popular vote for the office of President: you see the same small states that like having more say than the larger ones, have these same non-proportional powers and thus are NOT going to reduce their power by voting to get rid of the EC. I assume Warren knows this but just hopes there are enough ignorant Dems that don't.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    For Dems at this site to claim that the party is for changing the Constitution because it isn't representative is a total crock. Dems only changed their POV because they couldn't win elections. While I believe in those changes (as well as doing away with the two party system), it is for philosophical reasons and NOT partisan ones.

    Phillip Marlowe/Raymond Chandler

    Sadly when using Google even when one puts in "Norm MacDonnell" the search engine only shows links to the SNL guy. NOT!!!! I know who I was searching for and it was MacDonnEll and NOT MacDonAld!!!!! PS: The reason this bugs me is because I did this search about 6 months ago after watching Gunsmoke and I couldn't find him. It was only today that I tried again, ignored the BS search engine links and hit 'return' (which did show me the right links to the right guy).

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    I believe it is and have recommended three changes: 1) do away with the EC - President is elected on who receives the most popular votes 2) grant more than just two Senators per state: while the formula wouldn't create a statistical representation (like the House), set the criteria to where much larger states receive additional Senators; e.g. one additional Senator for every 10 million more citizens than the smallest state in the union. 3) 25 year maximum Supreme Court term. BUT I don't see any of these happening since they would require a majority of 'small' states agree with them and small states are not going to vote to reduce their overall Fed power.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Large states have their representational 'fair share' body of government; The House of Representatives. Dems want the EC to go away, as well as packing the Supreme Court, because they can't win elections under the criteria defined by the U.S. Constitution.

    Star centennial birthdays

    The Mel Torme version would be fine; he wrote the music and co-wrote the lyrics. PS: and Nat is my #1 person I would like to be stuck with on a desert island (as a musical partner that is).

    Starring Madeline Kahn

    While TCM has always focused on the films that were part of the old, so called, Ted Turner library of films which were mainly from Warner Bros., MGM and RKO. But as you note TCM also shows films from other studios; just not as many. As for AT&T already having an impact on TCM's programming and what they would lease; way to early to say that is happening.
  13. I assume MM is saying the students were wrong to blame Clinton. E.g. this statement by one of the students "The 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there" is illogical, unreasonable and comes from someone that is misguided (at best).

    Jeanine is a moron. Oh, and I didn't know liberals were running Fox News.

    Actor Richard Erdman 1925-2019)

    Erdman was great in many films like The San Francisco Story, Stalag 17, The Blue Gardenia and even in a musical Anything Goes. He had an easy charm.

    M A G A >> WINNING!

    Hopefully Trump supporters will do all they can to defeat these 12 GOP Senators in the next GOP primary for their seat. That just increases the odds the Dem candidate wins in the general election. (just like the misguided AOC promised to do to Dems she feels are not progressive enough).

    Please tell me why, since you appear to know.

    M A G A >> WINNING!

    Uh, god is a religious belief \ concert. And yea, you've caught on why these morons are trying to pass this bill: they trust that a so called 'god' will protect students from being shot at school. I would find this funny if it wasn't so pathetic and sad. Anyhow, as an atheist if I lived in the state I wouldn't sue to prevent this nonsense (even though I believe it is a violation of church and state).

    M A G A >> WINNING!

    Only fools insecure in their faith would have the desire to push forward such a silly bill.
  20. I don't agree at all since whether an illegal immigrant is deported or NOT applies to all illegal immigrants regardless of race. Like I said illegal immigrants shouldn't be allowed to own cars (or rent apartments or open bank accounts etc....), PERIOD. To imply those that support strong immigration enforcement are racist is asinine. The bigot here is you.
  21. I'm a CA liberal and not a member of the GOP or a Trump supporter but I don't agree with this policy. Undocumented individuals shouldn't be allowed to get a licence for a car since they shouldn't be able to own a car in the USA. While we need immigration reform that should grant amnesty to a select group of the undocumented (say 20% like Dreamers, etc...), the rest need to self deport. The way to make them self deport is to deny any and all services to them.

    Leave Him To Heaven-- the presidential hate of drumpf aka trump

    If you're point about 'Vice is a spook' is that a President or Presidential candidate having sex outside of marriage shouldn't be a big deal, I agree with that. Using personal funds to cover-up such behavior is also much-ado-about-nothing IMO.
  24. My wife's boss is from Iran (he is an American citizen), and being a conservative he has attended those fund raising events for every GOP President; those were you pay 10K or so and you get a picture with the President. He has around 3 pictures with GWB, but GWB wouldn't be lying if he said he didn't know him. BUT, in this case, I don't believe Trump; Trump like Kraft used the spa's 'services' and so he likely knows her from way back!
