    • Girl. Stick to the topic. It was just a random point of reference. 
    • Betsy Von Furstenburg on a weird recast on ATWT. She was a good fill in for Fulton when she was sick, and they tapped her as a recast when Fulton left the show.  BVF sounded like Fulton, but was way too of the manner born and didn't have the energy Fulton had. However, Fulton was going through such a weird phase on ATWT then (dying her hair a weird shade to get attention, playing Lisa as if she was practically retarded, stuttering all the time..) it was a relief to have someone play a more mature Lisa.   I wonder if BVF would have made a good Alex recast instead of poor Marj who was terrible.    
    • The man who raped Gloria Rideout is revisited in being found guilty of two other rapes   https://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/news/crime/2017/03/16/ohn-rideout-guilty-rape-sodomy-jury-oregon/99235728/ I was a big fan of Tom Pelphrey's and of the character of Jonathan Randall. But, I can completely see how GL fans could resent ATWT at the end. That extra time that ATWT got was a big factor. I wouldn't call yourself irrational if I were you.  
    • I don't want another CEO or businessman ever running for POTUS. Ever.  Perhaps, it is alright to have a cabinet position but not POTUS. Ever. Anytime the U.S. has chosen a businessman for the position, it's been an unmitigated disaster.    I think Yang has some points on automation and jobs but I still think his answer is too simplistic.  I do think, Universal Basic Income could be a temporary solution to help people who inevitably fall through the cracks whenever the country transitions into another industrial shift but it most countries who try it, only have it temporarily. I'm not sure how it can be made sustainable on a permanent basis but as a temporary "patch" for people of working age, especially people who are chronically un and under-employed, I think it could actually be a viable idea.   That would definitely need to be factored into any Universal Basic Income plan.  Color, gender and age discrimination all work negatively against job applicants, it's not just about automation.  I do agree that he tends to over-simplify aspects, he could benefit from talking to grassroots and community organizations who have studied these issues on a granular level to gain more nuance.  I don't even pay attention to his following, really, although I've noticed a few that I've seen seem to have gone quiet lately. Maybe those are just a few of his POC women followers.
    • Pff...she's a beyotch. The biTch got pissed off because a comment I made about Days. I am so sick of she being praised for her crappy acting when she followed a worse actor in the role. So anyone would've been better than previous Belle. So she needs to have a seat.
