  1. I hit the 'thank' button, but let me also just state it for the record. I appreciate the article and it does set my mind at more ease about a few concerns.
  2. Surprised me too... in my last post in this thread
  3. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2019/05/20/andrew-yang-2020-226931 Okay, Yang intrigues me as I've said before, and a part of me really likes the idea of a universal base income or as he likes to refer to it (With some sense of self awareness I think) "Freedom Dividend" . Every citizen of the USA gets 1000 bucks a month. But I have to wonder, if that went ahead... what's to stop landlords from raising their rents, prices from going up on essentials especially? I'm cynical, sometimes I think as soon as corporations and certain individuals find out folks have more money, they do what they can to take it with as little effort or innovation as possible.
  4. "You based our escape strategy from a children's book???"
  5. I must ignore the hard nugget of resentment in my soul, dig deeper, and find the chewy center of kindness.
  6. I thought it was a nice shout out that would not likely yield fruit
  7. I hear you. I have grown to love the new crew, but I did enjoy Major Vance Astro, Charlie-27 and the rest
  8. I would argue that the Silver Surfer himself was not what was wrong with that movie.
  9. That's what they get when they don't have an argent skinned alien with a surfboard made of the cosmic stuff of the universe!
  10. Love conquers all, but a Pre-Nup may save your future
  11. Your name is on 'the list' so many times I've actually made a rubber stamp of it.
  12. Fair gripe and concern. But then I wasn't crazy about a Defenders on Netflix without Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer and the Hulk
  13. I think a lot of credit goes to the original voice actress and some stellar writing to help form an amazingly in depth character... Batman needs her help. She's all excited.. and the next thing you know, she's going along in cuffs "I sense a lack of trust" THAT'S funny! to the tragic side where you see exactly how brainwashed she is.. wounded, hurt, and going "It's my fault- I didn't get the joke" That is a rich vein for any writers, good and bad, to try to mine, and most folks I know cheer for Harely Quinn because we all want to see the survivor stand up again. She's like the Rocky Balboa of an Abusive relationship, we want her to get up, stand, psychological damage and all and somehow come out as Champ of her own personal life. But then again I do hang around unrepentant saps and am a member of their tribe.
  14. "What would you have me do? Seek for the patronage of some great man and like a creeping vine on a tall tree, crawl upward where I cannot stand alone? No thank you! Be a buffoon in the vile hope of teasing out a smile on some cold face? No thank you! Eat a toad for breakfast each morning? Make my knees callous? Cultivate a supple spine? Wear out my belly groveling in the dust? No thank you! With my left hand, scratch the back of any swine that roots up gold for me, while my right, too proud to know his partner's business, takes in the fee? No thank you! Shall I use the fire God gave me, to burn incense all day long? No, thank you! Struggle to insinuate my name into the columns of the Gazette? Calculate, scheme, be afraid? Love more to make a visit than a poem? Seek introductions, favors, influences? No, thank you! No, I thank you and again, I thank you!"
  15. Okay. I hadn't heard about this, but why rob a bank when you can ransomware a city? https://www.npr.org/2019/05/21/725118702/ransomware-cyberattacks-on-baltimore-put-city-services-offline
