re: Why is the GOP so bad with the debt and deficit? - Ace Midnight
Well, you're right when you say they're bad, but in comparison with the Democrat party, who would set the federal budget at infinity, then the GOP actually looks artificially good by comparison. I guess it is because - about 70 or so years ago, politicians in this country figured out the old scam...

[quote]I am no fan of the "flag", but have ZERO issues with those who fly it. [/quote] You see, I think a rational person of color should not regard the flag either way. Particularly when you consider that 1 set of flags has benefitted A LOT from slavery: [img]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wik...

re: Modern CGI - Ace Midnight
[quote]CGI is a cancer if it's not used sparingly or to add detail to practical fx.[/quote] What is has done is instilled an overall laziness, because it makes things too easy, as well as a budgetary aversion to practical special effects. It is no secret that Blade Runner is my favorite film -...

re: Apocalypse now - Ace Midnight
[quote]On the rare occasion that the subject comes up, he always says that Platoon and We Were Soldiers are the closest any movie has come to Vietnam.[/quote] And I didn't mean to imply the individual soldier experience, that probably is Platoon or Full Metal Jacket. But the "U.S. experience" ...

re: Take the damn thing down already - Ace Midnight
[quote]Why weren't you liberals screaming about taking that flag down a year ago, if it's such a horrible thing? [/quote] Well, it came down from the dome over a decade ago - in a negotiated agreement. SO, as liberals do, they just bide their time until another catalyst comes along and - BAM - n...

re: Take the damn thing down already - Ace Midnight
[quote]Indoctrinated racism[/quote] I don't have a racist bone in my body and I'd like the flag to stay up on the Confederate monument (and at Stone Mountain, Ft. Sumter, Confederate cemeteries, etc.). People are responding because the flag is being attacked as a symbol - and that symbol, righ...

re: Apocalypse now - Ace Midnight
I'm in the minority among fans of the film - I liked the theatrical cut, but love the Redux version. A film that comes the closest to capturing the emotional fricking mess that WAS the U.S. experience in Vietnam - and using [i]Heart of Darkness[/i] as a template. The movie succeeds on so many level...

[quote]It breaks down modern CGI as well as other modern day problems with movies. [/quote] This puts into words my utter disregard for the modern movie-making profession - and explained some things I recognized, but didn't fully understand. And I haven't read a cracked.com article in a whil...

re: Yes or No: Bernie Sanders gets the democrat nomination - Ace Midnight
I don't think so. The bloom is definitely off the HRC rose, but this is Warren completely missing her chance - she would have, essentially, the same platform as Bernie. She would have the Fauxcahontas thing to overcome, but then the novelty of HRC's gender would be no counter to Warren. Having ...
