fricking fantastic so far. Utterly brilliant.
Am I in for a let down? Because right now this show is my replacement for Dexter until the other seasons are available on Netflix. ...

| Political Talk|| Crips and Bloods: Made in America (Documentary on Netflix) - FT on 12/7/13 at 5:10 am|
Anyone else seen it? It's heartbreaking and fascinating. At least 6 or 7 times one of the gang members mentioned that most of them had no idea why they were fighting. The best answer was "because we have to survive", which isn't actually a reason, just a statement. Neither side really hurts the othe...
| Political Talk|| This Board Needs Ideological Consistency (Repost with Better Title) - FT on 12/2/13 at 11:08 pm|
I honestly tried writing a post that would even remotely address how incredibly insane this board has gotten, and I couldn't even find a decent place to start. Suffice it to say that small-government types want marriage to be defined by the government and big-government types want the government to ...

| Political Talk|| Spinoff of the JFK Reverence Thread: Tribalism.... - FT on 11/22/13 at 10:50 pm|
JFK is revered. He's loved. Rush Limbaugh loves his ideas on taxation. Chris Matthews loves his legacy as a Democrat. The point is that both sides at least feel good about him. Very, very few people hate him. Most people feel good about him.
His assassination made him more popular than he would h...
| Movie/TV Board|| Always Late to the Party: M/TV Edition... (ABSOLUTELTY NO SPOILERS) - FT on 11/22/13 at 9:12 pm|
There are plenty of us here that pick up on a good show from the get go and stick with it, follow it, discuss it and enjoy it as it develops. Maybe you guys are just better at picking shows than I am.
I, and many of us here, have a different skill. We have the ability to entirely ignore fantastic...

Mr. Brooks could have been an amazing, clever and interesting movie.
But Demi Moore was in it. And everything she did and said was incredibly stupid. And her action sequences were horrendous. Seriously, any time she was on screen it was like watching a B movie. Any time she wasn't, it felt like a...

| Political Talk|| Sadly, it's too late to keep your plan if you liked it. - FT on 11/12/13 at 11:22 am|
The plans are gone. You don't have it anymore. I applaud Bill Clinton for going on the attack with regards to Barack Obama's lies on keeping your policy, but it's too late. If you've lost it, you won't be getting it back. I hate that, but it's true.
The worst part is that the insurance companies ...
| Political Talk|| Hypothetical: Obama 4 More Years, or Bill Clinton 10? - FT on 11/12/13 at 11:06 am|
You can have Barack Obama serve another four year term at the end of this one, or Bill Clinton for ten at the end of this one.
Which would you rather? I would prefer Chris Christie for a normal term in real life, but for the sake of argument, I'd take Clinton for 10....

The book was completely tremendous. I don't want him to do a remake of the movie, I want him to do the book, but this time, not have it suck.

America isn't all that healthy. It's pretty unhealthy, really. If preventative medicine becomes very mainstream and overall need for catastrophic claim payouts decrease as the populace becomes more healthy, and if we really can get just about everyone paying into the system, isn't it reasonable to e...

I wasn't totally sure where to post this, but since the point isn't how good of a documentary it was, but the subject matter, I figured this would be a good place.
I'd never done much reading on this, but the story so far in the Netflix doc is really very incredible. Do you have a pet theory on w...

I'm pro gay rights. I'm glad they have a lobby. I'm pro life. I'm glad we have a lobby. I'm against discrimination. I'm glad various groups have lobbies. Those things matter to me, and no matter your stance, they should matter, somewhat, to most of us.
But they just aren't the real issues of tod...

1) We don't like big government. We like regulation when big banks and big corporations hurt the citizenry and the government can press charges and hold people accountable. We don't like big government as a rule. We hate violations of privacy, we hate the Patriot Act and we hate drone strikes. We're...

I posted about my house potentially being haunted last night. I really, really doubt that it is, but there are some weird things that are hard to explain. Between my room mate and I, we probably spend $30-40 a month on light bulbs, and we often hear bumps, thuds, crashes and footsteps upstairs. Mayb...
