    Do your really want your grindr picture up on this site ?

    Seriously, using grindr and that whole hook-up culture is really kind of sad and pathetic.

    Hang up and interact with the people around you, idiots.

    What’s the matter with being sick of people trying to remove “Under God” from the Pledge? It’s been like that since it was inserted. Like Marge has to tell Homer about living under the sea: “It’s not gonna happen.”

    “800 foot waves”

    How could a Pisces be so afraid of the ocean. I didn’t used to be, but I am now. James Cameron was one brave fool to go down into the depths–the abyss. As brave as I used to be when I was young who’d have thought I turn into a scared old queen.

    That IndieWire article about Dallas Buyers Club is ridiculous. (FYI: It SPOILS the entire movie, including the ending.)

    The author is completely biased, goes into the movie looking for something wrong, and the gist of his argument is that because the movie is about a straight man, it can’t possibly be good. He makes the same mistake as David Ehrenstein did when he ridiculed Brokeback Mountain because its 4 primary leads were all straight in real life.

    The movie is getting great reviews everywhere else I’ve read, including Oscar buzz for the lead actors.

    Dana Perino, and Fox News, may be surprised to learn that on top of the “under God” part not being added to the Pledge until 1954 do to fears of Communism, the Pledge itself was written in 1892 by a socialist Baptist minister who believe in wealth redistribution and who feared big business would strip us of our humanity. Don’t hear them talking about that!

    @Crispy

    The film is based on an actual person, so what happens to him in the end isn’t a secret. Also, he has AIDS in 1985 and in the first ten minutes is told he has 30 days to live… how do you think it’s going to end?

  7. crispy says

    It was a parenthetical, Eric. That said, I had no idea how the movie was going to end. You do realize that not all movies about people, tragic or otherwise, end with their deaths?

    How the mighty have fallen – Kylie now appearing on The Voice. Kylie is going to suffer from this decision. She has signed with an American management company owned by Jay-Z. Appearing on The Voice in America is seen as a good thing and will boost your image but appearing on these awful shows in the UK is seen by the British as someone whose career is over.

    Kylie should have stuck with her old management team who kept her at the top for 25 YEARS ! They had a more global view about the world outside America ! Unfortunately she got greedy for American success which has largely eluded her.

    Once again we see that Americans have no knowledge or interest in anything outside America.

    For a brief moment I saw Sinead’s name and the Kylie picture at the same time and was impressed, confused, and mildly scared, thinking she’d really transformed herself.

    Turkey’s PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his religious center right party are taking Turkey backwards

    Ataturk is rolling in his grave, especially since he removed religion from politics in Turkey and Recep’s party wants to re-install religion into politics

    “under god” was put into the pledge in 1954

    prior to 1954 the official pledge of the Us did not include “under god”. The addition was a cold war anti communist bit of propaganda

    You might also be surprised that US money never had “in god we trust” till 1956, again as cold war anti-communist propaganda

  12. MIke says

    Moz, I knew that. And it’s never going to be removed as this is a Christian nation. Care to tell me in the “Declaration of Independence” when ” God” was added four times?

    “Former Bush spokesperson and FOX News blowhard Dana Perino is tired of people trying to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance: “If these people don’t like it, they don’t have to live here.””

    Unfortunately I do have to live here since it’s pretty hard to get citizenship for another country.

    I may have been born in America, and live in America, but I don’t consider myself American. I’d happily move to Japan if I could get citizenship.

    Re: Dana Perino is tired of people trying to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance:
    For anyone that agrees with Ms. Perino please watch the 1945 Christmas movie The Bells of St. Mary’s with Bing Crosby, and Ingrid Bergman. In it Bing Crosby recites the Pledge of Allegiance and he does not use “under God”.
    I guess people like Ms. Perino hates Bing Crosby and doesn’t consider him a patriot.
    P.S. the movie isn’t one of their best.

    RE: And it’s never going to be removed as this is a Christian nation. Care to tell me in the “Declaration of Independence” when ” God” was added four times?

    Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and he was NOT a Christian. He was a Deist. Nowhere in the Declaration is Jesus, Moses or the Bible ever mentioned. If America was founded as a Christian nation this would not be the case.

    I love all these people saying, “If you don’t like (blank) then you can leave the country.” Do they have a deed to the USA or something that they think this country is theirs? Why don’t we start asking them to leave?

    mike

    the US is not a xtian nation per the treaty of tripoli signed by president James Adems with unanimous senate approval

    The Decleration of Indipendence was written by Jefferson and the Constitution by Madison with Jefferson input. Both avowed DEISTS

    nowhere is jesus mentioned in either nor the god of abraham nor the bible, nor the torah, nor xtianity nor judaism

    The Constitution is a Deist secular Document
