Re: At The Movies:Black Panther

From all accounts it's pretty good, but I'm not as much of a "gotta see it first weekend" kind of guy anymore. I do confess to being put out by all the "oh this is so new and groundbreaking" BS. The character Black Panther was created in 1966. It's not even the first major film featuring a black Mar...

Re: Alcohol Czar

Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald called for creating a new Office of Alcohol Beverages Enforcement, headed by an "alcohol czar" appointed by the governor. That position would have broad powers to issue alcohol permits, make warrantless arrests and confiscate illegal booze. The bill...

"Whether they affected the outcome is another question."

Re: Hypocrite Pelosi

Yep, this is how it works - we argue about whether an extra hundred bucks is pay or a bonus while Pelosi keeps her millions and claims to care about us. Why is it particularly audacious for you guys that a rich person to care about the middle class ? Politics ? I think the crumbs thing is spot on. ...

Re: SOTU

Every year, the president and his party says everything is dandy and the opposition says no it isn’t. No news here, move along. Haven’t watched one live since probably Slick Willie.

Re: WHAT?

Grammar is a lost art.

How about "A man was killed after his car hit a tree"? What, people dragged him out of the wrecked car and pummeled him to death?

I can't find the headline now, but the other day a man on life support shot two or three people.
