I wonder if this whole “sexual assault is bad and we need to help women come forward” awakening would have happened decades earlier if Democrats turned on Bill Clinton.
Overpopulation concerns are bit like someone gifted you a stack of gold bars and your first reaction was to get annoyed because you didn’t have anywhere to put them.
Cholula really should come in gallon jugs.
The problem of going after hate-speech is that inevitably they end up just going after unpopular speech, which is the speech most in need of protection.
It will be interesting to see the reaction of the other Senators to Al Franken. I’m guessing there’s scumbags on both side who don’t want to set the precedent of Franken having to resign.
You know who we can be sure never sexually assaulted any women, though? Mike Pence.
Al Franken can’t resign now. He’s not done grilling Justice Don Willett on dad jokes.
If a Senator drove a car into a river and left a woman there to drown and didn’t notify the police, would that be consider resignation-worthy now? Or are we still not to that point?
Everyone always misuses the phrase “begging the question.” It should only be used for situations where a panhandler approaches Vic Sage.
What happens with Al Franken will help determine whether this tide against sexual assault is an actual cultural shift or just a temporary fad.
If nothing much happens to him, it gives cover to Roy Moore and deflates any push against Trump. And I’m guessing that will cascade.
We can still shoot elephants in self-defense, right?
The whole Vox union thing makes me wish I was overweight and smoked cigars so I could do a deep-belly chortle while chomping on a cigar.
Listened to the country song “Take a Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take a Knee, Just to Be Clear; I Know It Could Be Read as Telling My Donkey to Take a Knee, But I Was Using ‘Ass’ as a Vulgar Term for Buttocks to Negate the First Part of the Sentence)” and I don’t get the controversy.
I’d certainly rather the rich keep their money than give to a bunch of moron sociopaths who are notoriously bad with money, i.e., politicians.
The left get really angry if you suggest there is any virtue to dressing modestly or anything wrong with wearing a hijab.
The women covering their hair (which I believe originated long before Muslims) always seemed a bit weird and sexist and nonsensical. Isn’t a woman’s head the part least in need of covering?
Why isn’t men’s hair — which is indistinguishable from women’s hair — also in need of covering?
Well, I assume there’s some logic to it somewhere. I guess I could Google it, but that takes all the fun out of ranting ignorantly!
Man, I love all the Red Letter Media videos. I think I like film analysis even more than actually watching movies.
The debate about the tax bill seems be nearly 100% partisan nonsense. I am so sick of it.
You can never tell when anything worthy of attention is going on in politics because of people’s ability to work into a frenzy over absolutely anything.
On these $100 million+ movies, how much is spent on the script?
At that financial level, the script should be basically down to a science. They should be able to analyze each plot point and piece of character development and know whether or not it’s compelling.
These are dumb blockbusters. They should be doing basic plots really, really well. And there is so much data from past movies that what works and what doesn’t shouldn’t be a mystery.
Movies are all about the director. In TV, which is having a golden age, the big name is the showrunner/writer. Maybe dumb blockbusters need to push a little more that direction.
Trump always punches back. Always. Like if a baby pinched him, he would punch the baby.
Who was the sexual revolution more of a boon for?
A) Women in general
B) Lecherous men
Any interesting new sex perverts today?
Wow. I’m both surprised and not surprised.
Well, I’ll check back again tomorrow!
I always love that no matter how dumb Trump is, the criticism of him is always much much dumber.
Super Mario Odyssey used to not be tedious collecting, but that was many moons ago.
You really can’t cut the taxes of lower income people that much unless you go after the stupid payroll tax.
The payroll tax is sneaky because half of it is hidden from you. Your “employer pays it,” but really you do as that’s more money that could have been your salary.
Not so hidden if self-employed. That’s when you really see all the taxes.
I think we’d be a much less greedy society if we went by the notion that someone else’s income was no one’s business but his own. Especially not the government’s business.
So, finally, men are facing consequences for sexual harassment and sexual assault.
As long as they’re not a politician.
If your defense of someone accused of sexual assault involves the person’s politics, just go ahead and sexually assault women yourself for all the good you’re doing.
The only rich person you should be angry at is Uncle Sam, who has way more money than anyone else and didn’t get it honestly.
Just because artists have sexually harassed women doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be allowed to create anymore. Allow them to make license plates.
I might take you more seriously about net neutrality if you weren’t so obviously lying about it. Really, all free speech hinges on something that’s only existed the past couple years?
When people screech to high-heavens like this, I just assume you’re trying to pull something over on me. You can’t, though. It’s just like I always tell my kids: I’m much smarter than you.
Protect Net Neutrality! Hold your mouse like it’s a microphone, shout into it, “I want to keep the internet efficient through government regulation!”, and then punch yourself in the face.
