  1. Made with pride in USA, starring American actors and financed by an American production company. First Man, not so much.
  2. It’s been a tough couple of weeks for shister Michael Avenatti. First he plays a role in Kavanaugh's confirmation and now this. Think he’s gonna appeal? BREAKING: Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Against Trump, Orders Her to Pay His Legal Fees by Ken Meyer, Oct 15th, 2018 On Monday, a federal district court judge in California ruled to dismiss Stormy Daniels‘ defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, and ordered the adult film star to pay his legal fees. Daniels filed her lawsuit against Trump in response to this tweet calling into question her claim a man threatened her to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the president: U.S. District Judge S. James Otero dismissed the case on the grounds that the tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole” rather than defamation and Daniels claimed. Trump lawyer Charles Harder released a statement noting that with the lawsuit’s dismissal, the president is entitled to compensation for his legal fees. “No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Harder said
  3. That there’s funny. Original thought or borrowed?
  4. 12% of my eldest’s DNA comes from North Africa, from my mother-in-laws side (my wife’s aunt has similar). They are “black Irish” and the NAfrican DNA gives that new meaning. If 1/8 of the kid’s DNA is African, does that qualify him to be an African-American?
  5. @sunobskt - Cute. Not does the dog do when you are up on plane?
  6. It’s not worth it, I am quite pleased with 260+, or 200+ if all of O’s trolling were removed.
  7. Hey, Masterdebater, it is a proud day for me when I can be compared to Belmo.
  8. Carry on
  9. Roseanne Barr told PEOPLE Magazine a month ago her character would OD: Roseanne Barr Says Her Namesake Character Dies of an Opioid Overdose on The Conners Roseanne Barr has revealed how her namesake character will be written off the upcoming The Conners spin-off. During an appearance on Brandon Straka’s YouTube show Walk Away over the weekend, Barr said her character will die of an overdose. “Oh ya, they killed her,” she said. “They have her die of an opioid overdose.” Barr admitted she was unhappy with the way the writers apparently decided to end her character’s arc. “It wasn’t enough to [fire me], they had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show,” she said. But the actress said she’s come to terms with the show moving on without her. “There’s nothing I can do about it. It’s done. It’s over,” she said. “There’s no fight left.” If I am the “Tom” to which you two jamokes are referring, dickwads you are. If not, and it is Tom T for something else, then you are likely correct.
  10. At this point, I think 300 is a stretch......but, since I am here.
  11. A British guy I know only through Instagram told me how great he thought the movie was. He and fiancé when out of their way to see it in IMAX. Suggested that, as an American, I would be so proud of the result. I then told him about the controversy which he had not heard, unsurprisingly. Meanwhile, Americans can be such shallow and spiteful people I guess: 'First Man' Box Office: One Giant Flop for Ryan Gosling? Universal Studios still hopes Neil Armstrong biopic can go the distance. By Jake Kleinman October 14, 2018 Can a dramatic retelling of the moon landing compete at the box office with comic book antics and Lady Gaga? When it comes to First Man, which hit theaters on October 12 starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, the answer may be a resounding no. First Man reportedly cost $60 million to make and earned just $16.2 million at 3,521 venues in its opening weekend. By comparison, Venom earned $35.7 million in its second weekend, while a Star is Born (also in its second week of release and starring Lady Gaga opposite Bradley Cooper) raked in $28 million.
  12. Is that what the report says? I was laughing at 6-10 generations ago, trying to figure out what the math says.
  13. She just released a DNA test that suggests she thinks she has Native American blood in her veins, or at least DNA fragments. And that is EIGHT GENERATIONS AGO. I don’t know how one does the math, but that is, at best, 1/32, assuming that the donor of the DNA was themselves 100% NA. CNN: Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestry (CNN)Sen. Elizabeth Warren has released the results of a DNA analysis showing she has distant Native American ancestry, in an apparent attempt to pre-empt further questions and attacks should she run for president in 2020. Warren first faced scrutiny for her purported Native American heritage during her 2012 Senate race. But President Donald Trump has revived and amplified the controversy as he eyes Warren as a possible rival, frequently mocking her with the nickname "Pocahontas." But Warren now has documentation to back up her family lore -- a analysis of her genetic data performed by Carlos Bustamante, a professor of genetics at Stanford and adviser to Ancestry and 23 and Me. In a rollout video about Warren's heritage, the Massachusetts Democrat is seen sitting behind a laptop as she calls Bustamante...... Bustamante's full report is now posted on Warren's website, along with other supporting documents and interviews detailing her background. According to the report, "the great majority of (Warren's) identifiable ancestry is European." However, the report adds, "The analysis also identified 5 genetic segments as Native American in origin at high confidence." Bustamante's analysis places Warren's Native American ancestor between six and 10 generations ago, with the report estimating eight generations. "The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed," the report says.
  14. And killed Sid and Nancy....
