    There is another long forgotten tv show. Only had one season. It was so ahead of its time. If it had aired 3-5 years later on CABLE (HBO, Showtime, Cinemax), it would have been legendary. 


    With Adrian Pasdar. 

    I know that I was among the 100 people in the country who actually watched it. But, it was mind-blowing.

    What are some movies where you’ve found that people either love it or hate it?

    I’ll begin.

    The Age of Innocence.

    I love it. From the moment I saw it in the theater, I was in love with it and think it’s one of Martin Scorsese’s best movies.

    Amongst my friends, they either love it or hate it.

    As 2023 slides into 2024, two disturbing trends will need to be addressed:

    1) the percentage of white LGBTQ (and especially white trans/nonbinary) who prefer exclusionary white left-populism to center-left coalition building

    2) the prominence of Black conservative Gen-X rappers

    It can be demonstrably proven that President Biden & MVP Harris have a far better track record on LGBTQ issues than any star among the white DSA socialist far left, but the persistent behavior exists among certain white LGBTQ to willfully misperceive that record.

    Gay & lesbian TERFs are weird to me. I’m like, “Why the hating?”

    A lot of them have internalized homophobia and white supremacy. They exalt heteronormativity. They live for the approval of heterosexual white men. I loathe them. I think they’re emotionally-crippled clowns.

    A young girl didn’t want to slaughter the goat she raised for 4H. The state senator who bought the goat at auction agreed to let it live out its days eating weeds. But sheriff’s deputies drove 500 miles to kill the goat and teach a 9-year-old a lesson.

    “Has anyone actually stopped to ask why is this self-professed billionaire having to raise money 5-10 bucks at a time from the American people?” @kurtbardella tells @CapehartJ. “It’s the ultimate grift.” #SundayShow https://t.co/DgdAkVIQEc

    Being a Black politician is to be blamed for every problem White men caused while simultaneously expected to fix centuries worth of inequity in the Black community (and now apparently Africa), all while in a position that gives little power to do so. https://t.co/ymeWjnnNcC

    Ambitious parents are spending hundreds of thousands on consultants to help get their kids into Ivy League schools, report says
    Story by rhogg@insider.com (Ryan Hogg) • 9h ago

    Ambitious parents are forking out hundreds of thousands of dollars to consultants to try to get their offspring into Ivy League colleges, Bloomberg reported.

    It said some parents are paying consultants as much as $750,000 to work on their children’s college applications from the seventh grade as acceptance rates plummet. 

    Acceptance rates have fallen as mandatory standardized testing is increasingly shunned by many elite universities.

    Data from FairTest, an advocacy group for equitable testing, suggests more than 1,800 US colleges including Harvard, New York University (NYU), and Stanford are now test-optional, favoring other measures of aptitude instead.

    Prince Harry has the Daily Mail running scared with hacking lawsuit.

    all these book-banning laws do is reveal the extremist white Western Christian as an unimaginative dolt, incapable of evolution and unwilling to fit into a world that no longer prioritizes him
