  1. From various news sources including Indiana and Chicago news stations. As I wrote in the first post about this, the details were sketchy, as they always are early on. And often, of course, just plain wrong. If there are no fatalities that would be wonderful. So many have been killed senselessly this year. And last year, and the year before that and on and on.
  2. Horrible. Edited to add: just now saw the shooter is being described as age 13. My god!

    Evidently not an episode of Sherlock, so no? No more Sherlocks would be a good thing anyway. Feh.

    Peaky Blinders Season 3 - Spoilers

    From the link it is not said certainly there will be two more seasons after season 5, only that perhaps, it might be possible. I hope not. I think they're going off track already right now.

    O lordessa, I hope not. For even if they are being kept for nefarious labor and other purposes, even to become adopted by "good Christians", there is a chance that they can be found and / or escape at some point.
  6. Another school shooting this morning, in Indiana at a middle school. Two dead, one a female student, and the other a male (I think -- reliable details are still not entirely available) teacher. The shooter, a male, described as a teenager. Which leaves this one even stranger, as what was a teen doing at a school of 6 - 8 grade students.

    I, for one, am absolutely 100% convinced that this lost children are not being illegally exploited and abused in any way whatsoever by anybody at all.

    Because the Powers that Pee on us all don't think there is any other role for women in sports other than this -- despite being shown over and over otherwise. Realize, for just one single instance, girls couldn't play in Little League until 1976. OK?

    Speaking of limits here seems to confuse asylum seekers and refugees with immigration, among a lot of other things. They are very different. What I am against is holding dual and sometimes even more citizenships / passports. Either one is a citizen of the US or the citizen of another country -- you should be both, because that's been proven quite clearly, as with Israel as only a single example, severe political conflict of interest that isn't good for the US either. When one qualifies to be granted US citizenship, that should be that -- no more citizenship with another nation. If one accepts citizenship with another country, that's the end of one's US citizenship. And we should really crack down on the wealthy sending their pregnant wives here to the USS so their newborns can automatically receive US citizenship, as so many nations do.

    Being pimped to do sex with guys that the team owners tell them to 'be nice to' is a very different thing from dancing, cheering, doing gymnastics in cute, skimpy costumes, and really really really different than showing up and doing cheer routines for sick kids in hospitals, etc. If you can't tell the difference you are in real big trouble.

    Unpopular opinions

    You are so wrong about the bolded. Also, there's never been any television like Treme, which was balls to the wall brilliant, and not just technically. But even technically -- have you any idea what an achievement that extended Second Line scene is? What it take to shoot and record something like that, seamlessly? If you don't have any idea you've never been on a Second Line, and tried to even take a coherent photograph and sound recording, much less audio and film / video. Now as far as The Deuce goes -- I haven't been able to bring myself to watch that, not in this climate with a rapist-in-chief running the country and his secondary rapists and women haters and haters of everything else also running the country and sounding off everywhere everyday. I have a theory that the Troy film is so hated and denigrated because - Orlando Bloom's character of Paris is such a sniveling, weak-kneed, pathetic coward. People couldn't bear to see their beloved Legolas, on his knees and crying and running away from fighting. BTW one feel as superior as one likes in one's dislike of Blade Runner, but this film had more influence on the development of sf on screen than just about anything else as to what the future on earth will look and be like. And on the page, Bill Gibson was so enthralled with the look and sound and feel of Blade Runner he invented cyberpunk -- at least that's what he told me some years ago.

    I disagree with you entirely. Everywhere I've traveled in this country over the last decades the vitality of entrepreneurship, work ethic, etc. is fueled by immigrants starting businesses, working long hard hours, having strong family ties -- and paying taxes and social security. Not to mention the vitality of cultural input. Seeing an annual Latin Culture Festival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and the variety of businesses and restaurants in the region -- from a variety of Latin cultures, particularly Puerto Rican, Dominican Republic and Mexico, how much this contributes the vitality of civic and cultural life. One is seeing already the effects of this going missing now with the dumpster's anti-immigrant policies. There's no one for a work ethic like a Haitian. I cannot tell you how many Mexican-Americans I met in Mexico who were forced out of the US, where they'd been born or had lived for decades by the dumpster, and now all their hustling and money-making is there, not here.

    The Answer is (allegedly) Sex Robots

    OK. Why is it the solution men have turned to because they don't have intimate relationships with other men to hate women? I mean, really, when men had the most intimate and important relationships with men, as in war bands, the real identity of group was mass rape, group rape, humiliation and degradation of women? And, of course, making them slaves. And in those days of course, hugging other men, and crying, was culturally more than acceptable. Read the literature of Greeks, Vikings, Ottomans, etc. In other words, I'm not buying these arguments about how and where these kinds of guys and their hatred of women come from. Even back where I grew up, where everyone knew no man could survive as a real man or fully integrated member of the community without his wife, men who were ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON THEIR WIVES made fun of them and everyone went along with it. In other words women are always supposed to be utterly at the disposal of any man for whatever he wants, depending of course, on how powerful or equal the man who really owned her was in comparison with the individual. If men don't have community objectives to bond around, such as wrestling big trees into the ground to make the support for lines of electricity or telephones, they have to fall into basements and whine about the hottest women in the world don't give them the time of day and kill other women?

    Except it is about banding together to hate women together and figure out how to hurt them, in revenge for them being so uppity. Quite like KKK groups. These sorts of solutions are hateful, like just about any solution that sympathetic (white males) sorts come up, like Douthat's -- they all involve women having to sacrifice something for the sake of these (white males) sorts not getting what they believe belongs to them, while they, of course DO NOTHING but whine on the internet all day about how mean others are to them. Makes them so attractive, doesn't it.
