  1. I didn't think the scene was racist, but I did know that some people were going to think that it was.
  2. Arnold Schwarzenegger's term as Governor of California pretty much showed that being a businessman and being an elected official have no correlation. Businessmen are about making profit and government is not for profit. One reason that Clinton lost was because she played up experience so much and a lot of voters took that to mean career politician (which isn't necessarily a bad thing to have in a President). Voters are often far to obsessed with choosing outsiders over who is actually qualified.
  3. Most millenials do not have much to save and whatever they do save isn't enough to slow economic growth. CNBC posted a budget online to made it look like people making $500k a year struggle, so it's a fairly wealthy leaning channel.
  4. Not sure if this is just a joke, but if it's not it is worth wondering who smelled bad, lol.
  5. Much of the public doesn't understand this because they view everything in dollars instead of percentages. Republicans market as "oh, well people with less money are fine with their tax rate because they are paying only a few hundred dollars while the wealthy are burdened with paying millions" and lots of their voters believe this. There is also an idea that those too poor to pay taxes and who qualify for the EITC are somehow ok because they don't have to pay taxes at all.
  6. Seems to me like he is pushing these things through to make good on promises he's made to Russia before he's forced out. We know that the past couple of weeks have been terrible for him and what is going on behind closed doors is usually a lot worse than the public is made aware of. He is on borrowed time and needs to do what he can for Russia before he has to resign or is removed.
  7. I blame Trump less for this mess than I do establishment Republicans who allowed him to become President. They could have abandoned him in 2016 and just taken the loss in order to protect the country (and the world) from disaster. He demonstrated who he was over and over again in the campaign, but they chose to ignore it because they were so desperate for power.
  8. The few that Republicans who criticize Trump now could have done so in 2016 when it could have actually stopped him from being elected. At this point is too late.
  9. How Perry would be involved makes no sense. The Energy Department has little to do with foreign affairs that don't involve heavily oil producing countries. Even if the call was his idea he didn't make Trump say what he said on the phone.
  10. These fans sending hate tweets are disgusting. Unfortunately hate towards actors and actresses from delusional fans who think that the shows are real is nothing new.
  11. Is Julie being racist is something that the writers have added as of recent? I know she's been fairly salty toward people she doesn't like, but I don't remember anything racist since I've been watching (on and off since about 2004).
  12. Everyone has health issues with them sometimes being more serious than others and that's not something one should be criticized or judged for. But when it comes to the presidency these are things have to be considered because it is a high stress position that requires much travel. I'm not being mean, but Sanders looks far too frail to be President and this heart attack doesn't suggest that he is in that great of condition. It's also not great that the campaign tried to make it seem like something minor.
  13. She deserves credit for making for helping black women in entertainment see that they can be elegant and stylish.
  14. As I already stated, Democrats won three out of the 4 House seats in Iowa last year and that happened even though the incumbent Republican Governor was being elected. In rural states the state-level offices are often view quite separately than the federal ones. I was rude in my previous post, so I will apologize for that. The situation the country is in is just frustrating, but I shouldn't take it out on posters here.
  15. Federal and state offices are different, but I'm not going to argue about it. The constant negativity and "concern" from some is tiresome.
  16. The Iowa Congressional delegation flipped from 3-1 Republican to 3-1 Democratic last year. Along with Michigan and Pennsylvania it was one of the states that Trump carried that really helped Democrats retake the House last year. Ernst definitely loses if Trump loses that state and he's 14% underwater in approval right now. I'm guessing that Iowa flips back Democratic next year because of the tariffs.
  17. Vivian has a new person to hate now, because Lani did fire the shot that went into Stefan. Yes, Vivian did create the situation, but she's not exactly big on taking responsibility.
  18. This is just a funny story about someone I found out has been on GH. I don't watch the show, but I noticed this actor was in it when the channel was left on ABC at my house was one day. A few months ago there was an event at a synagogue where actors and some regular folks did monologues of former homeless people who had told their stories and Parry Shen was one of the actors to portray one of the people. There was a rule about not filming the program due to equity rules. Now all through the program there was a lady sitting next to us and she didn't try to film anyone before Parry Shen came out. My mom (who is on the board of a non-profit involved with the show) politely told her that filming was not allowed and she stopped. Most of the other performers were women and men who weren't particularly attractive, so it was clear why that woman was filming him. I just thought that was a fun story.
  19. The OLTL references just won't stop. Vivian called Gabi a ho and Dorian called Lola a ho on OLTL (where A. Martinez also portrayed the father of Banus' character). Not sure if that one was intentional, but I definitely remember that scene because it was the only time I recall hearing the word "Ho" used on a soap opera.
  20. There is also the fact that Clinton's impeachment looked clearly partisan and didn't have much substance to support removal. Trump knows that he is really in trouble here and even if removal isn't like because of the Republican Senate, the entire process can damage his re-election prospects even more than they already are.
  21. Vivian has another person to add to her hate this. After the way she flipped about Carly killing Lawrence she's really going to become even more nutty over Lani shooting Stefan (even though Vivian is at fault). Kristen is stupid for thinking that a baby would make Brady want to be with her. He'll just take the baby from her in order to protect it.
  22. When Julie really goes off it really shows the part of Susan Seaforth Hayes' acting range that would have made her a great Stephanie Forrester. When she starts yelling at people it reminds me of how Stephanie would light into people. Or perhaps at times she is channeling Flannery as Stephanie because she regrets turning down that role.
  23. I remember that him and Chad had this very odd exchange. With that look he gave Chad Ben could obviously get away with being made at least bisexual.
  24. I think that McConnell's actions are more about insulating himself from trouble. His wife is under investigation and he would want less trouble. He's not rattled enough to turn against Trump, but enough to buy himself some insurance in case things really boil over.
  25. Which is why I said could. The public can be swayed by scandal without substance, but I think with everything that happened over the past couple of years that the electorate will be a little more cautious about buying into such things. But I do think another nominee than Biden is a safer choice.
