  1. I don't disagree that immigration reform is necessary but the reason all of these refugees flee to the US in the first place is because the US intervened in their countries ruining them. The US is fine with funding guerillas and interfering in their countries but then treats the resulting refugees like a game of hot potato.

Trudeau said the 2014 agreement for light armored vehicles, signed by Canada’s previous Conservative government and a Ca

In a statement to NPR, the Bedford Police Department said an employee of the house found a suspicious package in the mailbox. They opened it, revealing what "appeared to be an explosive device." The employee placed the package in a nearby wooded area and

The bellicose tirade comes amid reports the IDF are amassing tanks along the Gaza border. “Wars are only conducted when there is no choice, and now there is no choice,” Lieberman told the parliament. Apparently anything less than the “toughest response” to Hamas is not being considered as Tel Avi
  7. According to Moviecollector's database, it has been on TCM 11 times. The last time was January 2017.
  8. Admiral Ushakov (1953) - This film is about Admiral Ushakov from the 18th century. The film follows his court intrigues, his exploits in the military (including ridding a town of the plague and building ships) and his fighting in Crimea. This one has nice recreations and nice costumes. I recommend it.
  9. Thanks for the compliment. Your politics are very nuanced and intelligent too. The people who vote for the GOP are led to believe that the cuts are just "common sense" and the rich are being unfairly taxed. They actually think the politicians who brag about being selfish and narcissistic will help them!
  10. I doubt it's just that. I oppose gun control too but I would never support cutting medicare, social security, etc. for the working class. The people who vote for this probably genuinely think these policies are good for them.
  11. Castro certainly wasn't a nationalist. He supported Mandela against Apartheid and implemented anti-racism laws in his own country.
  12. Grayson isn't a bad choice. The Desert Song is always a treat. I wish they showed the Vagabond King too. I don't think I've seen that one before.
  13. https://thephilosophicalsalon.com/should-the-lefts-answer-to-rightist-populism-really-be-a-me-too-part-ii/ BY SLAVOJ ŽIŽEK Let’s take an (artificially) clear-cut case. Imagine a democracy, in which a large majority of voters succumb to the anti-immigrant populist propaganda and decide in a referendum to close borders to the refugees and make life more difficult for those who already are within a country. Imagine, next, a country, where, despite such propaganda, voters assert in a referendum their commitment to solidarity and their will to help the refugees. The diff
  14. https://www.rt.com/op-ed/441873-china-socialism-capitalism-zizek/ Slavoj Žižek: Will our future be Chinese 'capitalist socialism'? Despite occasional exceptions, it was once considered almost gospel that democracy and capitalism went hand in hand. China's successful rise knocks the notion on the head. Official Chinese social theorists paint a picture of today's world which basically remains the same as that of the Cold War. Thus, the worldwide struggle between capitalism and Socialism goes on unabated, the fiasco of 1990 was just a temporary setback and, today, the
  15. Mexicanos al grito de Guerra (1943) - I saw this one almost a decade ago when TCM was showing Mexican films because of the 100th anniversary of the Revolution. In this film a Mexican patriot and the daughter of a French ambassador of Napoleon (who was occupying the country at the time) fall in love. I don't remember much of this film but I remember the funny and clumsy way Napoleon III was portrayed. Napoleon III tries to tax every window and door! (not sure of the historical accuracy of that) This film is decent and worth a look.
  16. Zou-Zou (1934) - Another Josephine Baker musical. Baker plays a woman who grew up in the circus. Her friend she grew up with is accused of murder and she must set things straight. This one had a few good numbers and is worth a look.
  17. The French Way (1940) - This one was a TCM Import a few months ago and I saw it then. This film was shot in 1940 but was only released in 1945 after WWII. Josephine Baker is a singer who helps two lovers get together. The lovers' parents hate each other so they have to hide and sneak around. All this while bombs are dropping and people flee to the air raid shelters. This was an okay film. Worth viewing for any Baker fans.
  18. https://giveandtake.fireside.fm/131 Podcast on Lacan's theories and their applications in the modern day. A bit long but I enjoyed it. They even mention some of his film theory in this.
