Re: Trump Admin Meltdown Thread Part III - A Democratic House

I guess I’m just trying to be careful not to condemn a group of people based on actions of 15 percent of it. I’m not saying that’s what you’re doing but that was what I got from one of the previous posts. And F.O.M.O. A few of the reporters mentioned were definitely not A-listers - any chance to ne...

Re: Women's World Cup 2019

Oh, Canada... A bit of hyperbole here, but letting that kid take the penalty kick on the team's first scoring opportunity of the game - when the sport's #2 all time scorer is on the field - was one of the worst coaching decisions that I have ever seen. Like not using Gretzky in the Nagano shootout?...

The Conversation. What a great movie. Didn't even think Coppola, even though Godfather I and II are my #3 and #2 movies, respectively.

Godfather II is a better movie than I. Fight me.
