    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Hey, I was just teasing you. But I do believe you will be rather lonely once the moronic Trump is out of office. Oh, and I'm hoping you're lonely way before January 2021.

    What is pathetic is replying to one's own post. But hey, that what the obsessed do. Seek therapy.

    Paul Newman as SOTM May 2019

    Most of the time 'those' are the only two choices; every once in a while the SOTM is a Fox or Universal star and TCM goes out of their way to lease films from those studios (since they are NOT in the old so called Turner library of films).

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Sadly the immature and borderline racist comments from Trump with regards to illegal immigration and even legal immigration have made it difficult for those, like us, that support controlled legal immigration from being labeled as having the same POV as the moron Trump. But I know where I stand; E.g. my wife's cousin just left our house going back to Italy because her temp visa expired. We made it clear that we care and love her but can't support illegal immigration. Hopefully she will get a business sponsor and return soon.

    Most romantic couple on screen

    If one is taking about on-screen couples Gable \ Lombard fall flat. While I enjoy No Man of Her Own, made years before they were a couple, they lack screen chemistry. Gable and Harlow had it in spades!!! But off-screen Harlow was deeply in love with William Powell. Gable???? Oh, that guy I make movies with!. (but Powell and Lombard had great chemistry on-and-off the screen,,,, but couldn't make marriage work).

    Women respond to misogyny and sexual predators with power

    Do you really believe Pelosi likes the two next to her? One has threatened to primary out DINOs and the other has been making anti-Israel comments (factual ones but that doesn't matter).

    Future of Democratic Party?

    Trump's America First talking-points during the 2016 campaign appear to be in line with what these Dems appear to be calling for; a return to an isolationist POV. As for Pledge #1: For Warren and Sanders what they are saying is that they want to share the responsibility of being commander and chief with Congress. While I support that it doesn't mean there would be less war. Pledge #2 is just empty BS.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    So black slaves worked hard because that was just their nature and not because they were forced to by means of confinement, violence and torture?

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    There is no crime called 'collusion' so if that is all Warner has, the Dems will look silly. There needs to be evidence of obstruction of justice, conspiracy, illegal use of campaign funds etc... IF Warner has seen such evidence why mention the vague BS 'collusion' instead of these specific crimes?????
  12. Most of these stories about AOC are much-ado-about-nothing. The big news from the last week is that she will be working to remove DINOs during the 2020 House and Senate primaries. Like the Tea Party, so called DINOs can be defeated my left-leaning 'progressives' (and self described socialist democratic) in the primaries, but face ultimate defeat in the general election. AOC is so full of herself she doesn't understand that moderates tend to win elections in moderate-leaning districts\states and that identity politics is often unsuccessful in such areas. Of coarse many far right conservative Tea party and Freedom Caucus members have a similar misunderstanding which has lead to winning a battle (primary), but losing the war (general election).

    Death Takes No Holiday -- The Obituary Thread

    Two actresses that I found in the Sunday L.A. Times obituary section. These were just the standard family provided write-ups and I just happen to recognize them by their picture: Mitzi Hoag Beggs; She was in Bonzana, We'll Get By, Facts of Live, and other T.V. shows and was in the movie Tammy and the Doctor. (second picture) The other is Sue Casey: Some of her more famous films include The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), Neptune's Daughter (1949), Annie Get Your Gun (1950), Show Boat (1951), Rear Window (1954), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Camelot (1967) and Paint Your Wagon (1969). Casey appeared in two Academy Award for Best Picture winners: An American in Paris (1951) and American Beauty (1999)

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    From Wiki: "On 28 February 2019, the Israeli attorney general announced his intent to file indictments against Netanyahu on bribe and fraud charges in three different cases. Netanyahu would become the first sitting prime minister in Israeli history to be charged with a crime". I wonder if posting the above will be viewed as a hate-crime. Hey, Chucky Schumer tired to make joining the economic boycott of Israeli a crime.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    I have lived in the O.C. for over 35 years. The county use to be much more conservative, both on social and fiscal issues, but there was a major change on social issues after Prop 8 was passed (this outlawed Same-Sex-Marriage). Arnold Schwarzenegger also helped move conservatives in the county (and the entire state), to the left on social issues since he supported the various causes. So today even a majority of conservatives in the county are pro-choice, support SSM etc... The county is still relatively fiscally conservative especially when compared with next-door L.A. county. While historically the GOP Presidential candidate wins the county, Trump lost to Clinton. The Dem House gains made in the county in 2018 were due to Trump; I.e. most of us can see what Trump is all about. But if the Dem party moves too far to the left with AOC and other members of the Democratic Socialist of America becoming the face-of-the-party OR the moderate Dems that won are defeated in the Dem primary by far-left challengers (due to outside funding), the GOP will regain those seats back.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Like I said, Harris is now CA's #1 politician (good old moonbeam Jerry Brown has retire), so Harris gets a lot of press coverage. I still believe Harris will win the CA primary and since the primary has moved up to super-Tuesday (it used to be in June when the 'contest' was already decided), a Harris win in CA could lead to the nomination (depending on her margin of victor).

    Bogus Movie Biographies

    A Song to Remember about the life of Chopin. I find Paul Muni to be very annoying in the film but Oberon as George Sand was interesting.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Correct; the spouse of the President is a 'nothing' so any focus on her (or soon to be, him?) is petty and silly. Vinograd should be asking Harris how she squared her ignoring of sexual harassment while she lead the CA's DOJ with her support for #MeToo. But of course since that isn't about Trump,,,,, it isn't important.
  20. Trump loves 'this crap'; He craves attention. He doesn't care if it is negative as long as he is at the center of it, which he is. Also what does Trump have to 'put up with'???? Nothing. He could just ignore 'this crap' but instead he is consumed by it because it is about his favorite topic; himself.

    America Waking Up and the Left Can't Handle It

    Sadly Tom can't handle the truth; that there are those on the left that promote the use of violence to silence those they disagree with. Instead we get the partisan stunt of; well your side does it more.
  22. Well CNN now has a leading story about Wayne, the airport and that playboy interview; https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2019/03/02/john-wayne-airport-playboy-interview-ethan-wayne-smerconish-vpx.cnn

    I Just Watched...

    It All Came True was re-released after the successful High Sierra and the opening credits were changed to give Bogart top billing. But the film was 'designed' to promote the career of Sheridan. The year before WB kicked off the their "The Oomph Girl" campaign and All Came True was part of that.

    Women respond to misogyny and sexual predators with power

    FYI: Today's L.A. Times has an article about Harris that is related to the thread topic here (unlike the one you posted); "Files outline harassment claims in Harris' DOJ - The department paid more than 1.1 million to settle cases brought during her tenure". The largest payout was to settle a 2016 lawsuit involving Harris' long time, close top aide, Larry Wallace. Harris claims to not know what he was doing, but few believe her.

    Actress Katherine Helmond (1929-2019)

    Same here; In addition to the shows listed above, she was Debbie's mom in Everybody Loves Raymond and it was a treat to see Robert Culp (as the father) and her together. I also loved her small role in the Goldie Hawn \ Kurt Russell comedy Overboard. RIP.
