  1. NO! Having said that though, it is relative. I vote in Republican Primary because I can. In my area of the state, NO Democrats have represented me in the last 20+ years. So, I have to try and support the best GOPer in the primaries. However, in the general elections I voted for the Dem (unless a total nutjob). There are NO Dem statewide officials and have not been for at least 15 years. About 20 years ago I did support and vote for a couple of state legislature guys, but they had been Democrats and changed parties and were fairly moderate by S.C. standards. Plus I actually knew the
  2. Missing the point. When Trump posts, the media jumps on it to report it. This includes all the fringe social media that is out there. Rachell Madmouth would devote a whole show to what Trump said, as would others. All those liberal podcasters would repeat it and then comment on it. Not to mention all the counter tweets and postings. Why give him the opportunity? He has already shown he does not believe in any regulation of anything he does. Never has; never will.
  3. Read my first sentence carefully "...what has become the Donald J. Trump..." It began with Goldwater and advanced through Reagan to the point where it is now. The party more and more and more embraced far-right, racist, suppressive and similar policies. Bush 1 and 2 and Cheney supported or acquiesced when the Party advanced these positions. The Party has increasingly pushed out those with moderate or even only slightly right of center positions. Look how ignored George and Jeb Bush and Cheney are. It was not a sudden lurch, but a gradual change in the Party - but it was there. Tru
  4. I doubt Trump has any blackmail material on Graham. If any was out there from anybody, it would have been exposed well before now. His continued dominance of S.C. politics has proven that. However, Graham and most others have recognized the political reality. The Republican Party over the past 55+ years has been refashioning itself into what has become the Donald J. Trump Cult Party. He owns the party and the elected officials in it. Their actions over the past 55+ years permitted Trump to demolish any opposition in 2016 and since. Trump is their Frankenstein's Monster and it has ta
  5. Maybe time to change title to Movies watched more than most others.
  6. Hi, glad to see your post. Missing your input on Off Topics.
  7. It is absolutely voter suppression and the Republicans know it. Of course, it may also appeal to the more rural areas of Georgia as suppression of metro Atlanta voting and power. Can't wait to see how they try to re-district GA based on new census. The plan will be to lessen power of metro Atlanta at all levels - county, state and federal.
  8. While his minions are reposting or summarizing (sometimes without success), the ban has been very effective. This can be seen by the almost total lack of his posts appearing on news programs and similar. If the ban were lifted, they would immediately zoom to the forefront, especially on the pro-Trump media. It would also allow them to be reposted without limitations by his minions and others.
  9. No doubt Out of the Past is the "better" movie, but for me The Big Steal is more entertaining and one I enjoy watching frequently. Sort of comedy/crime/road show movie and relatively short. One interesting aspect is how much more femme fatale Greer was portrayed as in Out compared to role in Big Steal. Of course, she was a femme fatale in Out. Shows the contrast in make-up, wardrobe, script, directing and acting.
  10. While I like Out of the Past, I prefer Mitchum and Greer in The Big Steal. Not a Noir, but an entertaining mystery movie.
  11. Why don't you tell us how you really feel?😃
  12. Had to think about responding on this one - too complicated. First, have to exclude Christmas movies as we watch several each year. There are movies I used to watch (DVD's) every few months for a while, but then got "burned out" on them. So, have not watched them in a while. I do tend to watch some of The Falcon, Nancy Drew, Hildegarde Withers and a few similar more often as they are about 60 minutes long. Same with The Big Steal, which I probably watch more than any other. As for any film I have watched more than any other, it would be a tie between The Big Steal and Silver
  13. What does all this sports talk have to do with Noir Alley? Did I miss something?
  14. I almost posted a laugh icon on this one. The GOP is interested in power and control over people's personal lives while permitting white people, businesses, the wealthy and corporations to do as they please. The Republican Party stopped choosing truth and fidelity to the Constitution when they nominated Barry Goldwater. It has gotten worse since.
  15. As I understood your earlier post you said that Trump could still be banned for a while and then reinstated and warned and then banned for life if misbehaved again. Not so much different from what I said, but I placed a time limit on current ban. He definitely should be prohibited from as much social media as possible until after the 2014 election. That is his punishment for the insurrection he inspired and supported. His statements since being banned have shown he has no remorse for anything he has said, done or caused nor will he ever. He continues to spread THE BIG LIE and to a
  16. Even if the Kangaroo recount group in AZ determined that Biden won there, it won't mean a thing. It would also take the same illegal process in other states to garner enough votes for Trump to have the majority. Not likely. Even then, it would go to US Supreme Court and even with 6 Republicans on the bench, almost impossible that they would reverse the election.
  17. The current GOP stands for subverting the Biden presidency, refusing to support any bill brought by Democrats and so forth. More importantly it stands for absolute support of Donald Trump, Trumpism and all the evils that entails. Of course, the Dems aren't sure what they stand for either.
  18. I would ban Trump until after the 2024 elections. Then if he acts up again, ban him for life. The problem is Trump has no regard whatsoever for rules or regulations. When caught, he just laughs or claims it is fraud or a BIG LIE or other BS.
  19. Shag, The Movie; 1:45 AM Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning. Not a bad rendition of the Myrtle Beach S.C. scene during early 60's. Before tourism really took over in the area. Of course, the shag is a dance and is featured in the movie. It is the state dance of S.C. Primarily about four young girls on an adventure.
  20. Real world American politics. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema from AZ can go along with the progressives and LOSE their next elections to Republicans. As can other Dems. In 2022, one of the GA Dem seats in Senate will likely become a Republican seat. There are other Dem seats which may be in jeopardy. Manchin knows that, Biden knows that, Harris knows that, Pelosi knows that - apparently you don't. James Carville, who knows a lot more about politics that either of us has stated as much. The Dems. LOST the 2020 elections, except for Trump's seat and the two GA senate races in which Tr
  21. Name one politician who doesn't, especially in federal office.
  22. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema(D) is also an obstacle to the far left, "Progressive" agenda. There are other Dems who probably would not support some aspects of the far left, progressive agenda, but they prefer to remain quiet Especially those running in 2022 for re-election. Nobody is "paying Joe Manchin," he is representing the people of WV. EDIT: I read the article and saw no mention of Manchin being opposed to the PRO act. The problem is that far too many people in America today do not support unions, contrary to what the article stated. It may be more of a regional thing, such as th
  23. Let's not leave out hedge fund managers and the like.
  24. I assume Wagner is not even chairman of the board? If he was, that might get somewhat (but not really) closer to an interpretation of representing all the people of Orange County. Are the supervisors elected by wards or districts? If so, he actually only represents the people of that ward or district.
