    It wouldn't suprise me if Pence is President by 2018.
  4. Fantastic Beasts, and Where to Find Them

    Wife got me all 8 films on a single blu ray back for 30 bucks. Had the week off from work so I watched them in 4 days. I got a new appreciation for these films and it got me interested in Fantastic Beasts. Though I am concerned with this Cursed Child play nonsense. The story should not be considered canon. I've read a bit and it is absolute shit. That said, my favorite films are either Order of the Phoenix or Half Blood Prince. Never understood the love for Prisoner of Azkaban. It is good but not that good.
  5. The Mummy Franchise

    Do it. To me it is second only to the 1932 Karloff/Frund film. The 1932 film was basically a remake of Dracula from the previous year. Instead they had an original story about a Mummy that is awoken 3,000 years later with a curse. This was also a pre-code film, so it was rather graphic for its time. You see people getting penetrated by spears and the lead actress Zita Johann shows A LOT of skin in certain scenes. The iconic bandaged wrapped money wasn't really displayed here, only at the beginning. That didn't show up until the sequels nearly 10 years later. Flash foward to 1959, where the British Hammer studios have already brought back gothic icons such as Dracula and Frankenstein, they didn't have as much code restrictions. Plus they were in color. The Hammer Film had a number of sequels that I am aware of, but they didn't live up to it. The fact the Mummy is a woman in the 2017 film, was already done in the Hammer film Blood From the Mummy's Tomb where Valerie Leon played the Mummy. That said, Hammer had a lot of beautiful women in their films.

    To be fair with Trump, the current President of Taiwan, is the leader of the party that is different than the Kuomintang, the party of Chang Kai-Shek. It advocates are more independent Taiwan, which is alarming enough to China, which explains the arms sales and the Chinese military drills. Trump probably should have been advised not to accept the phone call.

    I don't know if any of you are aware, but there's this treaty that if Taiwan ever presents itself as a soverign nation, than Mainland China or The People's Republic of China has the right to invade. Trump aknowledging Taiwan's leader as "President" would cause a ripple in China's staterun media. Taiwan has been careful not to stylize itself as an independent nation. It relinquished its claim to mainland China while mainland China still claims Taiwan. It is an extremely delicate situation, especially at a time where China is flexing its muscles in the South China sea. Even Japan is weighing whether or not to develop nuclear weapons. As for the US selling arms to Taiwan, that does alarm the Beijing government, but it was no direct violation of the agreement. Had there been a military weak Taiwan than it would have been invaded and incorporated into the People's Republic of China by now.

    It is ironic that people who are tired of the government not doing anything have also elected and re-elected the very people who have been advocating government shut downs and obstructing Obama. Now they have an idiot who knows nothing of Constitutional Law, the Republicans in House and Senate will think they can control him. Now if he can reshape the Supreme Court in their favor. The Democrats needs to find better candidates. Look at Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio. New York Politicians who vow to fight Trump's racist rhetoric. I think Cuomo is the top pick for the Democrats in 2020 but they also need to pick someone who is an outspoken progressive. Like Tulsi Gabbard who has actually joined the Standing Rock protests. She's also a veteran and easy on the eyes. Sorry to say, but being easy on the eyes is a great way to get the men and women vote.

    We are actually still paying for World War II. War profiteering wasn't so big on the Allies side during the war. Churchill's government made it illegal and I don't know how big it was in the US, but it wasn't on the scale as the cotton racket the Union Army had during the Civil War. The Nazis relished in it though. One of the most famous was Oskar Schindler.
  10. Shooting Just Reported at Ohio State University

    The shooting was mostly the cop shooting the perpetrator. It was more like a mass stabbing.
  11. Fidel Castro Dies

    I wouldn't go as far as saying they praised him. CNN kept showing Cuban Americans in Miami celebrating his death.

    Really wish Jill Stein would go away. These recounts are unnecessary. Instead of attempting to turn back the clock, Liberals, Democrats and ant-Trump people should focus on the next four years. Hate crimes are on the rise, people feeling unsafe in their own communities. They should focus their energy on protecting their communities.

    Castro is dead but the Revolution Lives on!
  14. If That Ain't Country

    I really don't get the hate for country. I find it too similar to blues and rock and roll to hate it. There's many different genres and styles. Not just singing in accents with steel guitars.

    $400,000 a year! Which is nothing compared to our actual annual budget.
