Which one is seated deeper from the outside?

What's the difference?

Trump and Mueller memo

Today, 10:11 AM

I'm actually glad to see this. Like I said In another thread, I've been more impressed with Trump this week. Somebody definitely got to him or upped to his meds or something.

I mentioned last week or whenever that I was legitimately worried that the way Trump wanted to across-the-board rip open the warrant applications and what not could seriously undermine sources and methods. The board trumpets did what they do. No surprise. But then, damned if all the intelligence and Justice folks didn't come out and say the same thing. And even then, Trump kept crowing about how this was going to be the crowning accomplishment of his administration!

Like I said, I'm glad somebody got to him. I have a bad feeling that with all this getting released and the FBI and CIA and others getting exposed and covering their ass, that the bad guys havent stopped being bad guys out there. We are so busy fighting each other over baseless Fox News conspiracy theories, we're too busy looking inward to see the next threat coming.

-----------------

President Trump on Friday walked back his order earlier this week to declassify information in the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying Justice Department officials and others had persuaded him not to do so for the time being.

Eta, don't think for a minute the timing of this on a Friday during an otherwise bizarre frantic news cycle is somehow accidental.

Bond Movies

Yesterday, 11:54 AM

They're getting played a hell of a lot on certain channels which means It must be a dead time prior to the new season.

Imagine there's at least half a dozen different poles that could be made about the subject. Best movie worst movie best Bond worst Bond hottest Bond girl least hottest Bond girl best and worst bad guy Etc

And, by all means, feel free.


Just seems to me they don't age well.

It'll be easy to say that theyre silly, but there's a lot of silly action films that seem to age relatively well.

Don't know what it is about the Bond films.

But without them, there would be no Austin Powers movies. And that would be a shame.

Greedy

19 September 2018 - 02:14 AM

So, I was wondering why I started seeing Hillary's name on the round of talk shows yet again.

Turns out, she's written a caboose or addendum to her wildly meh book last year called what happened?

So, she's reselling the whole book?

What a greedy biatch. I mean, if she's so Progressive, why don't you strike up a deal with Amazon where in they could at least give a deal to people who purchased her book through Amazon originally.

Or you know, God forbid, turns out we have this computer thing where you can put words out there and people all over the world can read them you know if they want.

I don't know if they still do it, but back when I was going to college, this was a huge racket. The professor would write a textbook and then every couple of years change up one of the chapters just enough that people couldn't buy used that have to buy a brand new book.

Whatever, apparently if you want Hilary insights into what's happened in the last year, it's going to cost you.

I think I'll wait for the movie.

The Emmys

18 September 2018 - 02:27 AM

Just watched a couple of YouTube videos. Cuz, no way in hell watching the actual.

Yeah, if you had a drinking game where you had to drink a shot every time they said diversity? Well that charcoal taste will get out of your mouth after they pump your stomach and you should probably be able to leave the hospital by the end of the week.

The only person you could apparently make fun of is Rosanne.

They apparently ran out of time. If they could do it all over again? Guarantee they would cut Will Ferrell. I don't know why this guy doesn't understand when it's not working just fuucking end it. But instead he double and triples down on it as some sort of punishment to the audience for not laughing at his unfunniness.

Kate McKinnon cleans up good. But she's a lesbian, so what's the point?

Speaking of SNL, the two guys who do Weekend Update? Should stick to that.

I did learn something. No kidding. Netflix is going to spend 8 billion dollars this year on 700 series. 700! What the hell? If you're out of work as an actor in Hollywood? You're Roseanne. No wonder they're bringing in hundreds of Brits at a time.

So there you go, everything you need to know about the Emmys without actually having to watch them.
