I guess I’ll end up seeing WFTPOTA (yikes) but the second one was really disappointing.

Not everybody needs to know the same things.

It’s not essential information, but a basic awareness of popular culture never hurt. I’m not even a Sinatra guy, but I know who he is and what his signature tune was.
The old joke about people who think Paul McCartney’s first band was Wings is being replaced by “Paul who?”

Yeah but I’m sure you don’t know stuff that people thirty years older than you might.

Maybe? Depends on the subject. But that’s what old movies, documentaries, and history books are for. Not to mention that internet thing the kids seem to like.
I don’t need to know about Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers to enjoy Star Wars, but it deepens my enjoyment of it.
For some people these days anything prior to 2000 might as well be a hundred years ago.

Expecting a human being to make any effort to acquire even the tiniest speck of knowledge about any subject is almost completely futile.

I thought about looking this up on Google but I’m kind of tired.

I seem to recall someone here once saying The Hill leans left, and maybe that’s true, but they just gave space to SEBASTIAN FUCKING GORKA.

Here’s just two fun stories on Gorka.

A Government Accountability Office report published in 2000 details how companies in the US set up bank accounts that came under investigation for money laundering – and it involved Ike Kaveladze, the eighth person who has now been identified as attending the June 9, 2016 meeting that Donald Trump Jr., his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had with a Russian lawyer.

The GAO report published in October 2000 outlined how companies opened 236 accounts at two banks through which more than $1.4 billion was deposited between 1991 and 2000. It found the accounts had been opened for corporations tied to Russian brokers. The GAO did not name Kaveladze in the report.

According to a November 2000 report in the New York Times, Kaveladze opened the accounts. He told the Times at the time that the GAO investigation was a “witch hunt”

I stopped reading there because I just proved that Trump Sr. was at the meeting with the Russians.

The fact that they now fire pretty much simultaneously allows for the interpretation that Han intended to shoot first, but Greedo got off a shot.

Ugh, this retcon still bothers me much more than an (admittedly very distracting) rock.

Hey, I’m not saying I’m happy with it, just that I can now blink and miss the change.

Sorry what? I blinked and missed this post.

Never mind, the problem was Trump not putting a damn space after a period because he’s not interested in proper English.

Also I should point out the other problem, which is that Markdown (the text editor, not the OT.com user) is stupid.

So…just to be clear…you hate the rock more than Greedo shooting first…because the rock breaks continuity while Greedo only completely changes one of the main characters…?

A new Senate bill to repeal Obamacare would leave 32 million more people uninsured by 2026 than under current law, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis released Wednesday.

Even more stunning, three-quarters of the nation would live in areas with no insurers participating in the individual market by 2026 – leaving many without an option if they do not have employer-provided or government health insurance, such as Medicare or Medicaid.

Also, premiums would about double by 2026, compared to current law.

Enacting the legislation would decrease deficits by $473 billion over the next decade, however this bill doesn’t take into account the cost of a replacement plan.

The new bill, unveiled Wednesday afternoon, would effectively repeal Obamacare in 2020, giving lawmakers until then to come up with a replacement plan. But it would also eliminate the individual and employer mandates retroactively to 2016, and get rid of taxes on the wealthy and others. It would eliminate Medicaid expansion starting in 2020, but it would not curtail federal support for the overall program as the House and Senate health care bills would have.

It would also defund Planned Parenthood for one year.

Go ahead and vote for this POS bill, GOP. And then have fun defending it.
