  1. I know credit card companies have to collect, but this just seems heartless. It's even sadder that there is division between the family over a fairly small amount of money. The minimum that a soap actor can make per union rules is $2500 an episode so if Kristoff wasn't on much he wouldn't have had too much money in the bank when you consider he lived in expensive California.
  2. If the report had recommended charges then Democrats would have had a better chance at filing impeachment. Instead it's basically a situation where there was clear wrongdoing but not enough hard evidence to bring charges. There is no legal precedent that lines up with much of what Trump and his campaign did, plus Trump Jr. avoided charges due to ignorance. With all that said there is plenty in the report to draft legislation that defines collusion and strengthens penalties for foreign money and assistance in elections, plus add tools to secure elections. If Republicans vote against that or Trump vetoes it, then Democrats can create a good narrative going into the election. "Keep other countries out of our elections" and "preserve our democracy" are exactly the sort of phrases that play on voters patriotism and in a diverse way.
  3. To a great extent the FBI is going to do it's job despite what Trump wants. Federal authorities tend to really dislike militia types and will arrest them whenever possible.
  4. The best way to hold Trump accountable is to vote him out and that has to be the top priority. He can be prosecuted after he leaves office and I think that is the best that can be hoped for.
  5. Looked into a few pages of the Mueller Report, particularly the details of interference. Much of the social media details of that we already knew, including the fact that they co-opted the Black Lives Matter banner. There is a portion that says that Russia got in contact with someone's family, but the name of the family is redacted. Russia clearly violated our campaign finance laws with thousands and thousands of dollars in expenditures in favor of Trump. They basically acted a dark money PAC, so they should be heavily sanctioned.
  6. It's surprising that they are still even doing the awards since daytime is so limited now. Four soaps is too low of a number to even be competitive and all the shows are just getting nominations for existing which is pathetic. The fact that all of Days of Our Lives' wins have been post cancellation of the other soaps is sort of embarrassing. It is sad because I remember how prestigious the Daytime Emmys were despite daytime never being as respected as primetime. Now it's just like a chamber of commerce banquet or something.
  7. Notre Dame is on fire. It's hard to watch the footage.

      I couldn't believe it when I heard about it. It's absolutely horrible.

      I was hoping that it would not be as bad as what it has actually turned out to be.  It's so much worse.

      This is an interesting thread about why a structure such as the cathedral of Notre Dame would be such a challenge to put out the fire.

      I'm sitting here, watching the footage, and I still can't believe it. I'm not sure why this has affected me as much as it has. I'm not French, I'm not catholic, in fact I'm hardly religious at all. But Notre Dame is so much more than a religious building. It's heartbreaking to think of everything that has been destroyed in this fire.  :(

  8. Trump getting elected changed the career trajectory of a lot of people. Most of the candidates currently running had no intention of ever running or were looking forward to 2024.
  9. Not everyone evaluates all situations individually, though. You have a system of government, courts, etc. filled with people who are determined to use the actions and of one person as precedent to blame entire groups of people.
  10. Going to court and getting dismissed would have been much worse than dropping the charge. Had that happen he would have played the victim even more and create a publicity nightmare for the police department and state's attorney.
  11. Chris Brown had a fairly substantial base of over the top fans. Some girls even went as far as to say he could beat them and they wouldn't care. He still was able to make his label and other parties money. Rihanna also became involved with him again, so that diminished some of the talk of what he did. The issue for Smollett is that he made very serious accusations in a time when hate has dramatically increased and also made it political. He made a fool of a lot of prominent people. He doesn't have a huge fan base and probably wouldn't make anyone enough money for them to hire him.
  12. The state's attorney probably made some error that would have gotten their case thrown out. I cannot imagine anything other than that reason getting this case dismissed.
  13. It's a strong draw for the network so it's not surprising that they are pressing on with it. It is good that they because other people don't deserve to lose work just because of Loughlin.
  14. There was no way that Hallmark Channel was ever going to keep her on after this. It really would be unfortunate if the show got canceled because it's not fair for other people to lose their jobs for something they had nothing to do with.
