    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    No. But since this event didn't turnout like 90% of the talking-heads on CNN said it would, they are now hyper focused on the Trump-is-a-serial-liar theme. That is true of course but it isn't breaking news.

    TCM schedules

    There is the on-line schedule; does it mention this as a 'theme'? Anyhow, how much theme-programming TCM should do has been discussed often at this forum. I.e. some want more and some believe there is too much.

    Hotties From Early TV

    Here is a gal I always liked that I have been seeing a lot in 'old' westerns like Gunsmoke and Wagon Train; Audrey Dalton:

    Robert Mueller submits Russia report

    There is a lot of damaging info related to Trump in the redacted Mueller Report; So what is CNN doing; speculating about what is redacted. Erin Burnett shows a part of the report that is 95% blacked out, mentions two of the parts that are not redacted (related to Mueller passing evidence on Cohen to the NY AG), and ask; what does that say about the those redacted sections????? Then guest come on to speculate about that. What total clowns; The report makes clear Trump is an immature, unprofessional, unstable a-hole. No need to speculate on that. But I guess what is clear in the redacted report still isn't enough for CNN to get over TDS.

    Bernie Sanders!

    I don't; I support multiple NON-profit health-care administrators. But that poll data is very interesting. Clearly a majority of Americans didn't feel this way when Obama and other Dem leaders pushed the ACA. Anyhow, any reform must remove for-profit administrators; private companies like United Health, shouldn't make a dime of profits from the US healthcare system.
  8. So you disagree with Pelosi and she should pass a bill to impeach Trump even though there is zero change the Senate would convict him? Oh, and if Pelosi did this the Dems would likely not win back the Senate and would likely lose the House, and increase support for Trump. Pelosi knows this since she is a solid politician.
  9. These idiots must be republicans. If the Dems wish to retain control of the House, gains seats in the Senate, and win the Presidency they should move on. Pelosi gets it.

    Robert Mueller submits Russia report

    Well one can assume JR33928 doesn't since he 'laughed' at my post. Frankly the findings match to a 'T' what I suspected all along, so I'm not surprised by anything in the report. As for the Trump supporters here: my guess is that none of this will change any of their minds; they will be voting for Trump, period. But I do wonder about Cid; Cid said he would vote for Trump if the Dem nominee is what he calls a far-left Dem; E.g. if the Dem nominee supports Medicare for All, the green-deal, etc... he is voting for Trump? Did this move that needle?

    Robert Mueller submits Russia report

    Clearly the Mueller report provides solid evidence that Trump abused the power of the office and has zero respect for the Constitution. Since there isn't enough GOP Senators that are willing to risk their political career to vote YES for an impeachment conviction, hopefully the findings will convince enough voters, especially in those battleground states, to not vote for Trump in 2020.

    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    Solid choices. Nice to see Peter Gunn, another Mancini theme song, get a mention. This is my favorite T.V. show as it relates to use of jazz music to set the tone\vibe of the show.

    dems poised to go nuts tomorrow

    And only the brain dead would be sure about all the things in a report they haven't seen.

    Bernie Sanders!

    United Health, which covers almost s many people as Medicare made a profit of over 250 billion dollars last year. Healthcare administrator companies (which is the primary function of so called healthcare insurance companies) should be non-profit. This is why I like the Swiss system.

    Remake vs. original / Remake vs. another remake

    Uh, that is Gold Diggers OF Broadway, not Gold Diggers ON Broadway.

    Fire at Notre Dame in Paris

    Of course what is going around now is talk about rebuilding Notre Dame: I have another idea; make it into a museum; restore just enough to make it safe, put in exhibits that feature photos of how it looked, its history etc...., but leave as much of the damage 'as is' (as long as it is safe to do so).This approach would provide a renewed appreciation of all the great collaborative works that remain. This approach would continue to provide mankind with appreciation of how fragile these works are as well as what this work meant to the people of France (and elsewhere), before the tragedy. I've been to Rome a lot and I tend to appreciation the very old 'beat up' monuments more than the restored ones as long as those 'beat up' ones have maintained enough of their structure,,, and Notre Dame has.

    Recently Watched Romantic Comedies

    While Lamarr is one of the most beautiful actress of any era, her screen persona is rather 'flat'; I.e. she doesn't create a lot of spark. I like her best in photos. Hey, she was in some fine films and gave some good performances but there were other actress that were slightly less beautiful but they had an IT factor that she just doesn't have.

    Bernie Sanders!

    Any and all proposals are going to 'turn off many voters' since any and all plans will hurt some (e.g. cost more, provide less services), while benefiting others (cost less, provide more services). So from a political POV any ideas are dangerous which is why McConnell and most members of the GOP wish to avoid the topic all together (other then getting rid of the ACA, without any replacement expect incremental proposals (like not allowing insurance companies to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions), that the vast majority of voters don't have issues with.

    Bernie Sanders!

    One could say the military is another 800 pound gorilla; with the misguided GOP tax plan, and them wanting to increase military spending, the debt and deficit is getting way out of control. In this way the GOP is a fraud; when there is a Dem President the deficit is THE major economic issues, but when the President is member of the GOP,,,,, the deficit is no problem, spending for the military increases (to payback those that helped them get elected), taxes are cut and spending for more useful items decreases. Note: I'm for lower Fed taxes but that means LESS spending and especially military spending.

    Bernie Sanders!

    I know that Sanders is trying to keep things simple here but what he says make no sense. If one has to pay more in Medicare Taxes, why would one ALSO pay premiums to a for-profit insurance carrier for health insurance coverage? Of course maybe the amount of the MFA tax \ deduction is based on if one is using the MFA insurance plan or a private plan, but it would be difficult to determine what a fair amount would be. In addition there is still that 800 pound gorilla; where does the money come from to cover those NOT retired that are NOT working or NOT earning enough to pay any MFA tax \ deduction.

    Elizabeth Warren Pres. Candidacy.....

    I agree which is why 'free' college for all is a bad idea; like student loans if for-profit colleges know someone else is footing the bill, that just increases the odds they rip off the 'system'. We see this in other areas; when consumers don't have a stake in the cost, the businesses providing services to these consumers grossly overcharge and \ or provide lower quality services. Note this is why in the workers' comp system, where claimants (employees) by law can't be charged for medical services, there are fee-schedules that determine and cap the cost of care. Also insurance companies (who foot the bill), can deny non-medical related or cosmetic procedures.

    What Would Be Your Fan Dedication Movie?

    That is a solid choice; hey, and tell him that your T.V. is broken and that is why there is no sound! Ok, that is a little sneaky but my guess is it might enhance his viewing experience.

    Women respond to misogyny and sexual predators with power

    I recommend you post this on the 'is ACO good or bad for the Dems' thread. I admit I like Pelosi's sense of humor when she dismisses these social-dems. She appears to view them as gnats.

    Well...we are proud of ourselves.

    Great. I assume I can find a copy on Amazon. I've been wanting to ask you a question related to statistical ranking (I work with actuaries and build statistical models in the insurance field so I love data!): Who are the top-10 actors and actresses over any 3 decade period. E.g. 30 - 50, 40 - 60, 50 - 70, 60 - 80. I use 3 decades because I'm interested in longevity: yea, there have been very 'hot' actors in every decade but many fade, especially after 10 years or so. If I'm not mistaken Glenn Ford would be right at the top for 40 - 60 (or maybe 50 - 70?), since he was very big in the 50s but strong in decades prior and after that. I.e. he was a fan favorite for a very long time. Of course many of the top-10 stars you listed would be in the top 10 for a 3 decade period, but I wonder if any of them would be in the top-10 for two of these: e.g. 40 - 60, and 50 - 70? (which means they were 'strong' for over 4 decades. Hey, I know that this would take work, but I just love this stuff and you do good work.
