  1. I don't think the Trump Cult should worry about whether "Russians" are indicted or not. They should worry about Trump. The Mueller Report shows ten instances of criminal obstruction of justice, and four of them include all that is usually necessary to convict Trump in a court of law. We won't know if there is more under the redacted portions of the report until Trump leaves the presidency. But these four cases on their own are enough to lock him up for 80 years (20 each). Of course, we know this DOJ decided not to indict Trump while he's in office. But the evidence is clear.
  2. It's sort of a "cult" movie. I'm not sure I would've understood some of it before reading the book. It's a huge book. It has maps, and family trees and even a geological history of Arrakis. Difficult to summarize in just one movie. Though I thought they did a good job of capturing the relevant aspects. Maybe if you watch the 2000 TV series. It might be available somewhere. It wasn't as great, but it's longer so it probably covers more detail.
  3. Unfortunately, right now that's a monopoly in our country. There are only two choice: cable, or your phone company. Unless you are one of the lucky ones who happens to live in one of the few limited areas where they offer FIOS. Otherwise, I would definitely not recommend the phone company. If Comcast offers services with no contract, I would suffer with their lamentable customer service for a while until 5G comes of age. That will be a game-changer, but it's not fully implemented yet. When you see companies like Google or Verizon offering Internet access for homes, that's when you'
  4. My favorite SF book of all time. And I think that the original movie (the one with Sting) was underrated. The TV series... only so-so. I read the book twice. First several years before I watched the movie, and again after. So that was about 35 years ago. I can try to answer any questions, but I'm not sure my memory will serve me right. But I'm looking forward to the new release.
  5. I saw this subject pop up in the "Member Debate" room. But it looks like this came up before I joined, and the topic was closed while I was still trying to find my way around, and it was closed before I could respond. So I hope I'm not infringing any forum rules. It's not my intention to debate here whether man-made climate change (AGW) is real. That would be a different topic. But I thought it would be important to explain what the main problem that Climate Change addresses is.... And, not surprisingly, that's changes to the Earth's climate. "Change" being the operative
  6. I'm still curious. And since Hillary seems to be your favorite topic, I thought I'd ask. I've heard more lunatic conspiracy theories about this fantasy "Deep State" (which only makes sense if you are referring to the red tape in government bureaucracy., but not as some "organized" initiative in the pocket of .... anybody) then you will ever fabricate on your own. But there is one question none of them addresses. This "Deep State' conspiracy would explain away why Hillary is not in prison. But not why she hasn't been charged with any crimes. Why has she not been charged?
  7. I completely agree that they would be rogue by doing what they are doing now in an abusive way. And shielding themselves from intervention by the other powers. The current regime, I believe, has reached the threshold.. Regardless of this characterization, the problem is that half the country agrees with the current regime. So it will only be a "rogue regime" to half the people (broadly speaking) So, in theory, that could create a civil war. But I don't think that's what you were referring to. We are in a health crisis. Governors making emergency orders are u
  8. Oh! The Conspiracy Theory, of course. A very selective "Deep State" that also protects Trump when he commits real proven crimes. Conspiracy Theories are great for the intellectually weak. Because nihilism explains away anything you want. And sometimes you wish they were true. Because a Deep State like the one conspiracy theorists tout would have had Trump's ass on a platter a long time ago. But a Deep State that one day hands over the presidency to Trump by announcing that they are "opening an investigation" ten days before the election, but then seek to pro
  9. I was a Sanders supporter against Hillary. Undecided when Sanders withdrew and before voting here in Florida started. So I didn't have to make up my mind. but I think some Sanders supporters need to chill or they're going to get Trump re-elected. That would be tragic. Having said that, I also think Biden has not handled this well. Not a bit. What's all the crap about not releasing the University of Delaware documents? Why is he getting himself into that rabbit hole. Just say yeah! I'm all for it! And then have a surrogate say that they can't do that because they co
  10. Leave it to a dumb Republican to not get it! Yep! There is no such thing as "The Democrat National Committee". There is a DNC. Keep trying! Maybe you'll get it without too much smoke coming out from your ears.
  11. Not sure what the purpose of defining "Modern Firearms" would be in this discussion. What would need to be better defined is "Rogue Regime". Not that I dispute your definition, but it needs to be extended. How would a regime become rogue in this country? I think we now have the closest we will ever come to a Rogue Regime. We have a President who has acted unlawfully, and because of bureaucratic red tape. Especially in the Judicial power who can't come up with resolutions fast enough. So anybody who wants to defend the Constitution just gives up. Red tape wins!
  12. The problem is this: NASCAR makes their money on image. On showing famous people. Winning races is just an "accessory" to the main product which is fame. So when a racer tarnishes his/her image, it's spoiled goods. Doesn't matter how good they are because they can't use their image for anything.
  13. That's beyond "no hold barred". That's vulgar. Seek help!
  14. Oh my God! And you think that's the "Democrat National Committee"? BTW, I know you're just pulling names out of your ass. But you have no real quotes. Just so you know you are fooling nobody.
