Dull, do you love me? Can I be the inspiration for yet another of your screen names? I'm straight, but let me be your muse! Ha ha ha ha!

There used to be a guido that posted here in the forums. But that guido would have a posting history and an old sign up date.


Batter up. Swing away, Merrill Marie Pierre.

It actually is Guido.

It was Gary who accused me of being a sock puppet after 2 initial posts.
I've watched the videos you post in the "whatever self post crap is worth posting thread", and it's not.

Please Stand Down.

I think every movie, from Generations on, has disrespected the years worth of story telling (building story arcs lasting several episodes to seasons to other series) more and more and it has proportionally become more about stunning us visually.


I can't agree with that in regard to the TNG movies. Generations, besides having Kirk, Scotty, Chekov, and Sulu's daughter... I forgot what I was going to say. First Contact brought back a character from TOS and Borg developments from Voyager, plus a cameo by the Defiant from DS9. Insurrection didn't weave in anything notable from the past (unless you count Riker and Troi finally getting back together), but I thought it was underappreciated, especially for its humor (Data to Worf: Have you noticed how your boobs are starting to firm up?). 10 I didn't like so much; the cameo by Janeway was completely gratuitous.


I question how deep the "nods" in "Generations" and "First Contact" were. Also, you and I may need to double check the Voyager episodes. Off hand, I suspect "First Contact" came out 1/2 to 1 year before the "Scorpion" episodes where Botager (first?) encountered the Borg.

The REAL problem with Monsanto appears to be that the seeds from their crops spread to nearby non-GMO fields and then they sue the farmers for growing their patented GMO crops. Perhaps that is a subject for another thread?

So you have the luxury to throw muslims, blacks, women, homesexuals, hispanics and so on under the bus to salve your conscience? Because in this regard there is a clear difference between the candidates that are likely to win.


This is "identity politics", is it not? I think you know me well enough, including through my recent posts, regarding what I think about discrimination.

However, a case has been made (one I believe) that if we handled the economic problems of Main Street, not Wall Street, the puppet masters would have a much smaller audience trying to play divide and conquer with the 99%.

I could try to present you links making the argument.

One was posted by a black friend of mine on social media. "Racebaiting: 101". It addressed our implicit 3 tier caste system. Another source is internet pundit Kyle Kulinski.

Trump offers so many positions and speaks so negatively, it is hard to believe he will help economically and will not discriminate.

Hillary will not be another Obama. She's even further right of the neo-liberal rightist Obama. She''ll probably make token to good faith efforts in the identity politics realm, reducing discrimination, but still 99% of us will be thinking about the economics of Main Street.

Johnson has a much smaller chance, but if he got in would probably throw us under the economic bus as well.

Stein might try to help both reduce discrimination and help economically, but she's got even less of a chance than Johnson, would have a heck of a fight with both houses of Congress if she were elected and I still wants to know where she stands on anti- or pseudo-science things.

I don't think we have ANY decent choices.


Racebaiting 101; i.e., it's the Main STreet Economy, Es.

Probably yes. That Next Generation episode about the meta-morph was without phaser fire, if I recall correctly. The Next Generation episode about the culture whose linguistic system was based on metaphors (one of my "favs", of course, as a lover of language) was a great example of the extremely judicious use of violence.


"The river Tamok! Iiiinnn wiiinnnter!"

"Darmok ... and ... Jalaad ... at Tanagra?"

Not sure about the original Star Trek... better experts here than me. Same deal for Deep Space 9 and Voyager and most of the movies.

Anyway, a little phaser fire, used in moderation, can be a good thing. Non-stop phaser fire, explosions and falls from which one could not possibly survive physically intact are completely beyond my ability to appreciate.

If I were 19, perhaps I would think Star Trek Beyond was a great movie.

At 53, I am simply too old for such nonsense.

We used to have two competing political parties. One wanted more power and control, the other wanted to push as much power and authority down to the lowest level. We don't have that anymore.

Never did. We had one party that wanted to control the bedroom and the other wanted to control the wallet. It was inevitable that control would win.


Dear Guy: after Gary's post, the younguns' add "Ohhh, SNAP!"

Howard Roarke is such an interesting character, it's taken me 1 year to get through 1/4 oof the book. Reading Limbaugh went so much more quickly. Even "Earth in the Balance" went more quickly!

Howard Roark (Mr. Ayn Rand?). Is a very interesting character, with many valid observations and ideas.

But as most fanatics disclose, if they gain power: "My way, or..."


Spoiler as to what happens after the first quarter of the book?

No spoiler...

Just a general observation.

What he does, his explanation, and where he explains...

You will not put the book down.


I have no problem with wanting to be functional and original. Creative. I am sometimes creative.

I do have a problem with the idea that following anything classic is sub-human.

Putting in the realm of architecture? Maybe interesting in the 1920s? Now? It's boring?

Ms. Francon and Mr. Toohey and the dances they do to appear different? Boring.
Roarke and Ms. Francon's weird submission/domination dance? Perhaps a bit creepy, what I've read so far.

Should continued reading shed any light for me, understanding the minds of others? Particularly, Trump and his supporters?

Is she? I've seen some evidence for it, but several websites available I did not check as they appear spurious. Es and Ozz indicated they were aware of Stein's anti- or pseudo-science bent, so could they or others provide more background?

“When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you – you know your nation is doomed” ~ Ayn Rand

May Director Comy sleep well at night......


Anywho:

1) Couldn't this go in the Hillary RODHAM Clinton thread? This thread is for Donald JOHN Trump and in your post, it lacks the sometimes necessary overlap.

2) This is one of the few things Rand says that makes complete sense. Are we sure she didn't actually say "When a man cannot make the courts agree with him, he's not truly a man ... not worthy of being called human"?

Is THAT legal? (Trade Federation to Palpatine/Sidious: "Is that LEGAL?")
The short answer is yes. The question is 'Is it Moral?', probably not depending on your personal definition of 'moral'(Hiliary, Soros, Buffett, Gates, Bloomberg, et. al. do it as it is an accepted risk of swimming with sharks, you stand the chance of being the meal.).


Really? We hear a lot about fiduciary duty in this forum ... .
