    Dead Pool Update - H. Ross Perot

    I would be curious to know what percentage of the population are crazy liberals or conservatives. I would think it would be much less than 3%. Maybe I live in a bubble, but I have never met someone in real life that has voiced a positive opinion of Antifa or the Alt-right.
  2. I havent read anything about this, but on the surface I like it. Maybe this is what happens when a politician isnt owned by lobbyists.
  3. I dont watch baseball. Will go yelich 45

    Tour de France

    I think we can agree MLB has had the same problem. NFL and NHL have not had steroid scandals of the same magnitude.

    Tour de France

    Exactly my thoughts. The Lance Armstrong doc on netflix should ruin cycling for everyone.
  6. 1. I think its about inclusion, not about "not being able to enjoy white characters." I just dont see the harm in making a mermaid black. 2. I agree this would be a good way to go about it. But why not both?
  7. Im looking at it from the PoV of a black kid that will get to enjoy a character that represents them. They can enjoy that and feel included. For a long time they didnt have that and Im glad Disney is making efforts to correct that.
  8. Dude, its a Disney movie. It doesnt need to be mythologically accurate. The target audience is 5 yr olds. I dont see anyone complaining about the lion king because lions cant really talk.
  9. I read an article years ago about how black kids didnt have a lot of back cartoon characters to watch and toys (specifically baby dolls) to play with. With Amazon, surely they can find toys now and media has made an effort to include them recently. Thats a good thing. Its not like white kids have a shortage of media and toys that represent them.

    Any of u ever think about leaving the U.S. when u retire?

    For those that want to leave the US because it's getting so bad here, what specifically is better about the places you mentioned moving to? For me, I like the idea of Europe because there are just so many different cultures and so much history to see.

    Forged in Fire...

    I have felt the same about woodworking. I tend to take shortcuts with DIY projects and lack attention to detail, so I probably wouldnt be a good candidate to take it up as a hobby though. I also fear I would cut off a finger or hand.

    5 or 6 years ago my wife and I did London, Paris, and Barcelona. Im not sure if its because Barcelona was the last city we visited and we were kind of ready to head home but we didnt like it all that much. What did you like about it?

    Geeks who're politically Centrist

    I'm a former Republican, mostly because I was raised that way. As I grew older, i became far more liberal. I am pro-gay marriage, want healthcare for all, believe in climate change, want defense spending cut, and feel that the system is rigged for the rich to keep getting richer. I hate that Repubs keep giving tax breaks to the rich. But the Dems are just too far left. Last nights debates are everything I hate about the Democratic party. There really is no party for me.

    Bernie never answers questions
