  1. Jsut for finality I could add that it does not help matters when you spend billions of dollars on tax breaks for billionaires and deprive your poorest citizens of necessities like health care. It is no wonder that people are brimming with resentment. Oh, and keep the poor uneducated so that they will stay poor and work for the billionaire class relentlessly. And half of them are so dumb that they are highly susceptible to the propaganda BS and will vote these f ers into office time and time again.
  2. Perhaps but I only mentioned it as a point of interest as you mentioned Rodney King. The problem people see with police forces across the country is that they have not changed enough since that time almost 30 years ago. That is what black people are saying. The difference today is that there are more cameras to capture these events. I am by no means an expert on solving this problem. Call in Jared Kushner.
  3. I was living in LA during the riots. They started because of the verdict acquitting the LAPD. And was not that case tried in a very white Republican district?
  4. HS. How can any party in America promise anything of the sort. Washington cannot agree on anything. The best that should be expected is that they promise to try to move ahead and promise not to be the party of white supremacists.
  5. Satire from The Borowitz Report Angela Merkel Practices Social Distancing by Staying Four Thousand Miles Away from Trump By Andy Borowitz May 30, 2020 Photograph by Peter Nicholls / EPE-EFE / Shutterstock BERLIN (The Borowitz Report)—In an effort to practice social distancing, the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, is staying four thousand miles away from Donald Trump, Merkel has confirmed. Merkel’s decision to decline Trump’s invitation to a possible meeting of the G-7 in Washington was based “entirely on science,” Merkel told reporters. “Epidemiologists have recommended that, in order to be safe, one should social-distance by six feet,” she said. “It only stands to reason that I will be even safer if I social-distance by twenty-one million feet.” Merkel said that she was taking the extremely cautious social-distancing measures regarding Trump because of “the danger posed by being in proximity to someone who speaks so loudly and incessantly.” “His mouth is like a firehose of droplets,” she said, shuddering. Asked whether she would reconsider a White House visit if Trump agreed to wear a mask, she said, “Donald Trump with a mask is clearly a big improvement over Donald Trump without a mask, but no.” The German leader added that she could envision making a trip to the Oval Office if “events on the ground change,” most likely in January of 2021.
  6. Satire from The Borowitz Report Growing Pressure on Obama to Do Something Stupid By Andy Borowitz September 4, 2014 Photograph by Pete Souza/The White House WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Arguing that his motto “Don’t do stupid stuff” is not a coherent foreign policy, critics of President Obama are pressuring him to do something stupid without further delay. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) led the attack on Thursday, blasting Obama for failing to craft a stupid response to crises in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine. “Instead of reacting to these events with the haste and recklessness they deserve, the President has chosen to waste valuable time thinking,” McCain said. “This goes against the most fundamental principles of American foreign policy.” Graham also expressed frustration with the President, telling reporters, “The American people are waiting for President Obama to do something stupid, but their patience is wearing thin.” In his most withering criticism, McCain called Obama’s “stubborn refusal to do stupid stuff” a failure of leadership. “If I were President, you can bet your bottom dollar I would have done plenty of stupid stuff by now,” he said.
  7. Rush Limbumburger: Trump is enjoying watching the flames. The right is politicizing the riots and ignoring the underlying problem which is systemic racism in police forces everywhere.
  8. I don't think that that is the case at all. For the longest time the quickest way to get into the LAPD was to join the John Birch Society. Sadly, racism is everywhere. In every state AND in every country. But white supremacists DO gravitate to the Republican party and Trump is a complete racist ****.
  9. Monday, June 1/2 Jazz In Film. 3:30 a.m. Bullitt (1968). Music by Lalo Schifrin, or as my Bullitt movie poster says ‘Lalo Schinn.’
  10. You just have to go along with everything Trump says, don't you MM? Your fearless leader can never be wrong about anything because you are at war with 55% of the people in your own country.
  11. I heard a good joke in a rather bad British comedy The Camels Are Coming (1934). The hero goes undercover in blackface as an Arab and discovered, the girl says "My, you've caught the sun."
  12. This explanation might not be good enough for you but I think they recoil from the "war lover" that they have seen take aim at the men below. He does kill an English prisoner of war after all. In any event its source comes from Shears' earlier criticism of Warden and his mission drive even after he is wounded. Shears thinks Warden is dead inside. The girls represent life. I have to admit, it doesn't fit like a glove but the symbolism is still strong.
  13. Right out of the Reichstag Fire playbook.
  14. I had the good fortune to be dining in a restaurant one table over from Claudia Cardinale in Montreal about 1983. The most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I think she may have been there to pick up a lifetime achievement award at the festival. Around that same time in Montreal I saw a film shoot of Once Upon a Time In America. I wondered later if he might have been at the table with his back to me. A close second would be Jacqueline Bisset who I saw in Mexico about six months later. That was just for a minute or so.
