  1. 19 minutes of Jimmy is a bit too much for me. I just hope he didn't use the same hair dye as Rudy. I don't watch Rachel Maddow so I don't know about her Russian shtick. Most people can figure out that Putin is a nogoodnik on their own.
  2. Yep. It's been going on for centuries. The MSM is not perfect, but some part of it usually gets the job done. It's certainly more trustworthy than the nutjob conservative networks. And while both parties are much too beholden to corporations, there are still enough differences between them in other areas to see they aren't the same.The Supreme Court is just one example.
  3. Donny was about 90% razzle dazzle. Not sure about the other 10%.
  4. Just imagine how many million more votes he would have gotten if he hadn't campaigned at all.
  5. The only one I watched today was Torn Curtain, which I haven't seen in 15 or 20 years. Besides the basic plot, the scene I remember best is the prolonged killing of the East German bad guy in the farmhouse. You know he is a very bad guy because he wears a black leather jacket instead of a suit like the rest of the commies. This is a return to the let's visits lots of different places while spying plot of some earlier Hitchcock films instead of individual focused themes of films like Rear Window and Vertigo. It's also like other similar spy films of the mid 1960s. Mayb
  6. This has been debunked numerous times over the last several decades. It will have to be debunked over the next several decades because the conspiracy nuts never give anything up, however idiotic. And if Oswald's every minute in Mexico can't be accounted for, it must mean he was involved in some international conspiracy involving the Cubans, the Russians, the CIA, anti-Castro Cubans, the Mafia, LBJ, and the New York Yankees.
  7. Hank Kimball should be the man. It will take him four years just to get to D.C.
  8. I would have yelled out HEY THORWALD, WHAT THE **** KIND OF NAME IS LARS! I got a kick out of Thelma Ritter talking about petting parties. That's an expression you don't hear too much anymore. DirecTV is having a free HBO, Starz, Cinemax, etc. preview through Sunday. There must be about 40 or so channels to choose from. I meant to watch some of the Dallas game just to see the Boys get their rears kicked, but I totally forgot about it. This has been a great football season. Steelers are 10-0. The Cowboys, Patriots, and Panthers all suck. Sweet.
  9. I wasn't replying to one particular post, only to the news of the Supreme Court decision concerning New York Covid restrictions as they concern churches. Contrary to popular belief, there appears to be one institution that is above the law.
  10. I haven't seen Network in a long time, but I'm guessing it would be hard for that work of fiction to out crazy some of the people at Newsmax.
  11. Let's keep the democratic oligarchy we've always had. Of course Athenian democracy only allowed a minority of residents to participate. What's the big deal about the British royals? Anyone can be a parasite. Easiest job in the world.
  12. As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. Proverbs 26:11.
  13. It's possible there is no source for that particular quotation. May be a paraphrase of a number of other similar but not exact quotes. That happens fairly often--a fake quote is just a more pithy version of the actual original. Play it again, Sam.
  14. Welcome to the Military-Industrial-Religious Complex.
  15. Those remarks likely wouldn't bother Newsmax. It was a sudden departure (his TV show) without any announcement. Maybe he'll be back next week. One of the funniest shows on TV.
  16. Very true. I noted that in my final sentence. I began noticing a few years ago how many well-known quotes aren't all that accurate, which is a shame because they are often better than the originals, if there are any. Many of Stalin's most famous quotes are bogus.
  17. He's out on bail now and if he went back to jail I think it would have been on the news. The new show has a clean-cut guy in a suit and tie, who, from my limited viewing, is only just slightly less nutty than Steverino. He just looks saner.
  18. I have to downgrade Newsmax a bit. Clicked on Newsmax Monday night waiting for Steve Bannon's War Room: Pandemic show and something else was on. I figured it might have been just a one night thing, but Stevie and his three loonies were nowhere to be seen yesterday night and now he's no longer on the DirecTV schedule. Is this the end of little Stevie? If it is I am deducting four wingnut points from the Newsmax since Bannon was probably the craziest host Newsmax had.
  19. I know that Goebbels quote about lying is very well known and shows up quite frequently, but it's very doubtful that he actually said or wrote it. It's one of those quotes, which are quite numerous, that are repeated without folks bothering to check it out, which is certainly understandable. Not to say that Goebbels wasn't a big liar and lied all the time. https://truthisthegreatestenemyofthestate.blogspot.com/
  20. Thunderball and You Only Live Twice are the only James Bond movies I saw in a theater. After adolescence I quickly lost interest in James Bond. Sorry 007. I will watch them both tonight because it's been such a long time and it will almost be like seeing them for the first time. I bought a chocolate fudge cake for Thanksgiving dessert, but I think I will start on it tonight during the Bonds flicks. Neither shaken or stirred.
