How far are you from Cudahy?  I hear there are some interesting town hall meetings going on there.

Genie, I had to look up Cudahy...so it's not near me.  It's up in LA somewhere.  I'm almost afraid to ask...but what is going on in the town hall meetings?

And WHERE IS MY COLIN FIRTH AVATAR?! :fav212:

Those minorities speaking for Trump are a minuscule portion of the CA population.  Possibly even less than minuscule. It made the news because it isn't the norm out here. Most people here would love to see him gone.  :fav204:

That whole hearing yesterday of the alleged wire tapping fiasco was interesting to watch... umm::

Oh yes.  Personally I didn't think CA had any Trump supporters.

A friend sent me that.  I replied "How far afield did you have to go to find that.  LOL  It was funny not only coming from CA, but the two minorities as well.  Most rare.


He thinks he got it from an Anne Coulter tweet.  He likes her.

What wire tapping?  You know I don't read the news.  I guess I'll go looking.

I found it.  I think that is very indicative of our News Journalist bias.

I don't care what truth turns out to be

But the news slant is mostly about Napolitino's UNPROVED allegation, which causes most Americans to miss THE POINT of the actually action of Obama asking the British to wiretap - and whether that is true or not.  It's all about Napolitino. They don't want to admit to any wrongdoing by a Democrat, so let's blame the Republican for spilling the beans.

Poor FOX, they're always taking it on the chin.  LOL

Most times if I want news, I go outside the US and see what BBC news or other friendly countries seem to say.

I'm not American, so I don't have to take a stand.
However, I must get this off my chest; never, ever did the US president resemble a clown more that he does now.
This man has no dignity, and shows no pride in being the leader of this great nation.
And let's be honest; performing your office by using Twitter is not only childish, but also dangerous.
I'll stop ranting now ...

You're not alone, Luce! 

I've had people ask me in London, Sydney and Auckland (all allies of the US)...the exact same question. "Are you afraid of your president?  Because we certainly are!"

My answer is always yes. He scares the crap out of me.

 LOL.  I'm sorry. 

I cannot agree or disagree yet.  He certainly isn't a politician and I don't believe he can run a country like a business, but I am not afraid of him.

He's certainly not going to nuke anyone.

His anger at how the US has been run does reflect a lot of people - I guess that's why he won.  I like the scheme he's doing now about trying to get back some of the money we've lent to other nations.  He's starting with Germany.  That's a good place.  They are not a poor nation. We are becoming one.  That is probably the business man coming out.

This news is 6 minutes old.  This is today's news.  This is what Trump wants to avoid happening to us, by closing borders to certain types.

U.K. Parliament Attacker Is Shot; Panic on Westminster Bridge

LONDON — Britain’s Parliament was placed on lockdown on Wednesday, plunging the country’s seat of power into turmoil, after an assailant with a knife stabbed a police officer and tried to storm the building, and a motorist on an adjacent bridge plowed over at least five pedestrians, killing at least one.

The Metropolitan Police described the attack as a “a terrorist incident,” but many details, as well as the sequence of events, remained unclear. Security officers shot the assailant outside Parliament. But it was not yet known whether the assailant was the same person who ran over the pedestrians on the bridge

The attack came on the anniversary of suicide bombings at the Brussels Airport and subway station that killed 32 people, along with three bombers. Though the authorities did not immediately identify the assailant in the attack on Parliament, the violence raised fears that London, which has been largely been spared as a target of recent terrorist attacks, has now joined cities such as Paris, Brussels and Berlin.

Ambulances and other emergency vehicles thronged the scene, and helicopters flew ahead, as one of the busiest sections of London was cordoned off and evacuated. The Westminster station on the Tube, London’s subway system, was closed. Prime Minister Theresa May was rushed into a vehicle and spirited back to her office, where her aides reported that she was safe.

I watched this terrorist attack unfold a few hours ago in London.

I know what Trump wants to do. Problem is that the terrorists are already here.

This is true.  So where do you start if your the President of this nation?

On Sunday 12 March, I and my family, Lise and little Mia, too, have walked over Westminster Bridge.

It's very scary to think it could have been us.

Genie, I'm not sure where to start. Unfortunately ISIS and al Qaeda have infiltrated the western world years ago. Believe me, being in the airline industry I feel like a sitting duck, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's not a matter of if, but rather when they'll use planes as bombs or missiles. For now cars and trucks seem to be their weapon of choice, but planes are much more effective.

Luce, isn't it crazy when you are in a location and not long after something crazy happens there, and your thoughts are "wow, could've been me".

How is baby Mia doing?!  We have to meet in London again some time...maybe not on a bridge though! :fav210:

  • One day the film-maker hopes to project movies on to the clouds. But for now he?s launching a drive-in unlike any otherGlastonbury is a lot of things: Britain?s biggest music festival, a hedonistic wonderland, a rally stop for Jeremy Corbyn. However, it?s unlikely anyone would think of it as a cineaste?s paradise.Ok, perhaps that?s a little unfair. The festival?s resident cinema, the Pilton Palais, celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and has seen some notable premieres, most recently of Asif Kapadia?s Amy Winehouse doc. Film, however, has generally been relegated to a supporting role. Continue reading...

  • The stand-up comic turned Silicon Valley star teams up with Judd Apatow to tell the charming story of how he met his wifeIf you?re a comic keen to express, in great detail, the many difficulties of your everyday life on screen, then congrats ? Hollywood wants to hear your story, even if a mass audience often doesn?t. The critical success of Louie has led to shows from Tig Nataro, Marc Maron, Pete Holmes, Cameron Esposito, Maria Bamford and Aziz Ansari, all riffing on versions of themselves with mixed, and sometimes under-seen, results. It?s become a strangely overpopulated sub-genre of late, and a feature-length film based on the early days of standup-turned-sitcom star Kumail Nanjiani arrives at a time when it feels as necessary as another superhero reboot.

  • Bullitt collides with Barry White in the British director?s most ambitious project to date. Wright and his stars Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm and Lily James explain why this noisy heist is a Hollywood ?unicorn?

    Edgar Wright is in remarkably, unfathomably good spirits. It?s day 23 of a high-pressure shoot for Baby Driver, the director?s latest and biggest film, and Wright is standing on a closed-off portion of a highway in Atlanta, overseeing a frenetic car chase on a scale that easily surpasses anything he?s made before.Wright is casually propped up against one of the many vehicles on the road, wearing a boater and looking like the postcard embodiment of an Englishman abroad. As he excitedly talks about the world he created on paper coming to life, Jamie Foxx walks past in a boilersuit. ?Everything is fun with Jamie Foxx around,? Wright says, beaming at his Oscar-winning star. ?We have Gladys Knight and the Pips playing, so we good,? Foxx replies, one earphone in. Continue reading...
  • post The Graduate review ? Hoffman and Bancroft are as irresistibly watchable as ever - 22 June
  • Attitudes have changed since Anne Bancroft?s predatory seduction of hapless Dustin Hoffman, but this rereleased classic remains a hugely pleasurable experience If ever a movie captured the audience?s imagination with its musical soundtrack, it was The Graduate, that irresistibly watchable 1967 classic, now rereleased in cinemas, starring as Anne Bancroft as the sexy and jaded fortysomething Mrs Robinson, who seduces 21-year-old Ben, played by the young Dustin Hoffman ? that muddled young man whose sentimental education begins only after he graduates college. Simon and Garfunkel?s eerie and sublime The Sound of Silence perfectly captures both Ben?s alienation and bewilderment about what he should do with his life, and then his postcoital disenchantment and self-loathing. And Here?s to You Mrs Robinson, with its gentle reassurance that Jesus loves her, provides a note of final gentleness and forgiveness for this character that is really nowhere in the script. It is, incidentally, very different from Billy Paul?s woozily sensual soul song Me and Mrs Jones, which came out four years later. Continue reading...
