    Why Are You So Afraid of Russia?

    Is that Joseph McCarthy's Chief Counsel Roy Cohn behind the senator? Indeed, if we did travel in time and come to the future, we could find that Roy Cohn was the lawyer-mentor of our current president. So I guess you could say we do have some McCarthyism there in the White House. People say Trump has no ideology. But he's got the ideology of Senator McCarthy by way of Roy Cohn. For those not familiar with Trump's Mentor lawyer, you can Google him.

    Well said.

    Ça alors, beaucoup de rhinocéros. Sometime, when you have the time, Google what happened to the collaborators in France after World War II. Or better yet - - take a look at the French TV series "The Village". It didn't pay to be a traitor then, and it doesn't pay to be a traitor now.

    Why Are You So Afraid of Russia?

    I just saw Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the umpteenth time. You got to love that Kevin McCarthy. He never gave up his constitutional rights, not even when they said he was crazy. This film is so much like a French absurd play, Ionesco's Rhinocéros. Rhinocéros is an allegory about the fascism in 1940's Europe. The hero in the play was always astonished when his co-workers and best friends turned into rhinoceros. "Ça alors, un rhinocéros." I guess when it comes down to it, I'm an American and not a rhinoceros.

    TrumpCare

    It appears that the Republican party is the very definition of dysfunctional. And Breitbart's Steve Bannon doesn't help with his attacks on the Republicans. Trump can't have it both ways - - he either gets with the party and he dumps Bannon, the Mercers and all the other white nationalist followers. Or he's in for a very isolated and lonely presidency, that'll make Jimmy Carter's time in office look good.

    A New McCarthyism in Hollywood?

    Sen. Barry Goldwater, the founder of the modern conservative movement,would never sign the Civil Rights bill in 1964. So I just always assumed that true conservative thought moved in a racist direction. And William F Buckley Jr, the other great co-founder of the modern conservative movement, was overtly racist on his PBS Firing Line TV program and with his groundbreaking conservative magazine, The National Review.

    Bette and Joan

    Peter Lawford did co-star later with Bette Davis in a movie called Dead Ringer. Save somebody else - - he couldn't even save himself. He was "eaten" by a Great Dane. But talk about movie star dramatizations--Lawford acquitted himself very well as Paul Bern in the Carroll Baker- Jean Harlow movie.

    Give Nixon a break - - don't you remember those long cozy walks on the beach he used to take with his close friend, Bebe Rebozo?

    TrumpCare

    Time has already told-- all these Town Hall meetings where Republicans are complaining about losing their health care. I just saw a coal miner on TV who was praying that he wasn't going to lose his Healthcare and that they would not repeal Obamacare. 24 million Americans would be adversely affected. As the coal miner said, It's a life-and-death situation for a lot of us. BTW--Healthcare is something that those congressmen and senators don't have to worry about because we, the American taxpayers, pay for their health care. So maybe that's why they have so little empathy for the plight of others.

    Miles, I've been waiting for you-- Of all my childhood memories of this film, all I can remember are those beautiful gowns worn by Miss Loretta Young, along with two of my favorite actors: Ronald Colman and Colin Clive. Miles, you're up--

    No. When I say screenwriter, playwright and author- - I mean he is the epitome of all those professions. Hint: He has received more Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer, plus 2 Emmy Awards.

    TRUMPISM IN EUROPE

    Le Pen, The anti-Semitic Racist candidate of the national front in France met again with Putin today. Whether you say it in French or in English-- "Birds of a feather", etc. LOL This reminds me of the French Vichy government, which collaborated with the Nazis. Nothing good ever came from that sort of business.

    Sears has 'substantial doubt' that it can survive

    I've been buying organic Meats and canned goods, as well as clothing items on-line for several years, mostly through Amazon. They deliver it by Federal Express and put it at your doorstep. If you really do want to meet a wide variety people, maybe you should become a Federal Express delivery man. Plus they are always on time. LOL

    TrumpCare

    The real issue is that Trump has no control over his own party. Traditionally the President of the United States is the head of his own party. When the same party controls both houses of Congress and the executive wing, but you still can't get anything done-- well that's simply because the party has no leadership. There comes a time when each and every President of the United States, no matter who he or she is, has to accept the truth--The Harry Truman axiom-- "The Buck Stops Here". Basically Trump is a political neophyte, and worse than that he has no diplomatic skills whatsoever. When you go through your whole life born rich and you can have everything you want in life and push other people around--you simply don't know how to act diplomatically.

    Victor Buono

    I first saw Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? when I was in elementary school. As young as I was, I had the impression that he was quite gay. it was also clear to me that he was in it for the money. Decades later his performance stood out in my memory--like the first time I had seen Robert Duvall in To Kill a Mockingbird, when I was a kid. Those kind of debut performances come along once in a lifetime.

    Mad-- You're exactly right. When I would look at movies as a kid like-- Birth of a Nation, Gone with the Wind, They Died with their Boots on and Gunga Din, I knew they had to be somebody's rewrite of History to fit their political beliefs because they were so one- sided and racist. BTW--Have you ever seen any of those movies?
