  1. The Politics Thread

    Yes. My God. This is just horrifying.
  2. The Politics Thread

    WTF is wrong with people? This cannot be allowed.
  3. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    Exactly right.
  4. The Politics Thread

    Hi reports are the stuff of nightmares. Yes. So awful and no one at all to stop it.
  5. The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

    Seems like we talking about Trump in the politics thread, but not in a separate one. Can't swear to it though.
  6. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Seriously! If they ever bring him back, I am out for good. Why would anyone think it's ok to bring back a person who has fired for grabbing a young woman? It's also sad if EB is the only thing stopping it.
  7. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Juliet has been utterly ruined with this pregnancy. She is just trying too hard and will not let anyone forget for a second that she's having Cane's baby. She's almost making me feel for Lily.
  8. The Politics Thread

    It was Kristoff. I follow him on twitter, but I couldn't think of his name.
  9. The Politics Thread

    It's insane. There are so many terrible things happening right now and people are still going on about this. Hell, the fact that these players leave the game with serious brain damage almost down to a man is no problem. Taking a knee is the problem. It's infuriating. Rand Paul may be my new (temporary) hero. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/10/white-house-leans-on-rand-paul-to-back-tax-plan-243601
  10. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    That's the sad truth. I can barely stand to watch it.
  11. The Politics Thread

    It's terrifying. What Vee just posted is unthinkable. Everyone in Congress knows we are being led by a madman but they won't act.
  12. The Politics Thread

    Anything could happen, but my point is a lot of people are in denial while pretending they aren't. I'm talking about people in the media.
  13. The Politics Thread

    ^ Right. I mean few people seem to think North Korea will launch a bomb that will hit where they are. I see a lot of reporters/bloggers on twitter joking about it, but if they believed it they'd be reporting/blogging from Europe.
  14. The Politics Thread

    Yes. None of us really believe he's going to get us in a nuclear war, if we did we'd be getting out of Dodge no matter the cost. I only have these moments of believing it. Then my mind pushes it down again. Some reporter from the NYT was doing the media rounds today. He's been in North Korea recently and he was saying he thinks the threat is real. That's why it's feeling more real to me today I guess.
  15. The Politics Thread

    Here's hoping we get that far. I seriously wonder if organized human society can survive WW3.
  16. The Politics Thread

    Some things would be moving forward if the Republicans weren't so tribal. Thank god they can't agree on things like healthcare. Also, it's not like the president is simply neutral or a non factor. He's actively disrupting Washington by failing to make a ton of appointments. https://www.timesofisrael.com/denmark-to-join-european-nations-in-outlawing-burqas-niqabs/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter This seems sad to me. What will these women do just stay inside all the time?
  17. GH: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    One day Kristina has that terrible blonde hair and the next day she doesn't. Then she does again. At least try to GAF show. I know they have a tiny budget, but come on. I'm a few days behind. Why is Franco lying to Liz about Drew? I don't see what he gains. Did Steve/Jason never meet Ava?
  18. The Politics Thread

    And still is right? I believe I've read something about the Republicans keeping that way on purpose, but I can't swear to it.
  19. The future of US soaps

    I would. I watched AMC and OLTL on Hulu.
  20. The future of US soaps

    I started watch Days right before some bigwig at NBC said it was going to be canceled. So I stopped watching for several years. I think that was around 2005. I can't even remember when I picked it up again. Maybe around 2012. So yeah, I agree American daytime soaps are dying, but it's been one hell of a long death. They could go at any time, but I also won't be surprised if Days and GH are still on the respirator 5 -10 years from now. Past that I would be very surprised though. I agree. NBC seems to be having the same problem though.
  21. The Politics Thread

    I can't even pretend to be surprised. These guys are hypocrites almost down to a man. How many times have gay bashing congressmen been caught having sex with a man? How many times have "family values" congressmen been caught having an affair or worse yet leaving a wife with cancer? Even John McCain is said by some to have left his first wife because she was disfigured in a car accident. He cheated on her first of course. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1024927/The-wife-John-McCain-callously-left-behind.html
  22. The Politics Thread

    Why do mass shootings always bring out the anti choice loons? Someday I'll learn not to debate with the nutjobs on the internet.
  23. The Politics Thread

    Yep. He thinks he gets to choose, but doesn't want to let women and teens decide for themselves.
  24. The Politics Thread

    I hear you Khan. I just figure that in addition to that there is an ulterior motive. When the Saudi Arabia is a part of the equation I always suspect something more is afoot. It's disgusting the way we are supporting their destruction of Yemen.
  25. The Politics Thread

    Disgusting although I was more surprised that Japan voted against it. I guess I always thought of them as being more civilized than we are. I wonder why we voted this way? In support of Saudi Arabia? I wish the article more analysis.
