Apparently a woman’s been nominated for cinematography for the first time. What do we think of that?

You know, it’s a sad day when my post using farts as a (surprisingly apt) metaphor for media bias is more on point than this predictably stupid backbiting some of you engage in on a regular basis. Seriously, don’t you have anything better to do with your time?

Beats working.

With PDFs?

lets get back to deciding if we can make fun of Trump for being the most pathetic President human alive or not.

There is no one exclusive topic here. We aren’t beholden to only talk about one thing.

That is kind of weird. Maybe there just weren’t that many option?

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **

It’s amazing how people have selective amnesia. Yes, Luke did throw away his saber in ROTJ, but a few seconds before, he was about to kill Vader. And a few minutes before that, he’s prepared to “strike down” the Emperor, only to have his faithful apprentice intercept the attack.

This invasion of privacy stuff is nonsense. Luke isn’t the NSA. Was it an “invasion of privacy” when Vader mind proved Luke in ROTJ? As for Luke entering Ben’s bedroom, sure, it’s a little weird, but I don’t think the temple has high expectations of privacy.

Disagree. IMO media has lots of biases, and they all affect political coverage:

  1. Laziness: Analysis is hard, transcription is easy. Got a divisive topic? Call up representatives from both sides and repeat what they said. Even if one or both sides are provably lying, don’t call them out on it. Let the audience decide. The audience you’re helping them misinform.

in area is also if you are bias on side X of divisive topic, Get someone sane and very intelligent to argue side X and get a nutcase to argue side Y. The result of said debate will make side Y look wrong, stupid and insane and side X look right, intelligent, and sane.

People voted for side Y even though the person arguing for side Y was made to look wrong, stupid, and insane by a right, intelligent, and sane side X.

Maybe the Democrats at an elective level have lurched right, but their base of voters has most definitely moved left after 2016.

In other news…

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/01/22/us/politics/government-shutdown.html?referer=https://news.google.com/

Right Now: The U.S. government is close to reopening. Senate Democrats helped advance a stopgap bill after a G.O.P. pledge to continue immigration talks. Check out our live vote tracker to see how each lawmaker voted.

• The Senate voted to reopen the government after 81 senators broke the filibuster that shut it down.

So we had a one weekend shutdown. Guess it really didn’t matter after all.

Well said, ender.

Particularly how certain views take on a popularity that shuts out dissent.

As for ignoring important issues, this caught my eye.

If the Republicans want me to judge them fairly, they need to stop supporting Trump.

ender’s point that I agree with goes far beyond treating Republicans fairly. It’s about debating global warming, net neutrality, religious practices, abortion, feminism, etc. I care about that more than a hang up with a particular politician.

America elected Trump. I have problems with him as you all seem to. But the idea that fairness is dead unless we eject the president from office is absurd.

Sorry but it is the way I feel. I can be fair and debate with you and Ender. But I refuse to be fair and refuse to debate with those that still support Trump. This has nothing to do with whether or not Trump has small hands, whether or not he and his wife share a room, whether or not his Vice President calls his wife “mother”, wears cheap deodorant, or picks his nose. This has to do with Trump being a complete and total disgrace to this nation and its history. Everyone that supports him and everyone that voted for him should be ashamed of themselves. You want to support conservative viewpoints? Fine. You want to support Trump, not fine.

My last post on the matter: Hate Trump! That’s fine! I don’t like him either! But hate him because he’s a disgrace, not because he picks his nose. Hate him because of his misogyny, not because he only brushes his teeth once a day. Hate him for his policies, not his quirks. Hate him because of his decisions, not his unique preferences. Hate him for his words, not his idiosyncrasies. That is my point!

But I’d also argue it’s okay to make fun of him because he picks his nose. He’s Donald J. Trump; he should be able to handle it. People made fun of Obama’s brown suit. That’s okay too, in my opinion.

There’s only two symbols. Which was the one shrugging, the square or the penis?

obviously, it didn’t show up as intended. I posted it from my new Ipad. On the Ipad, just looked like a guy shrugging. On my pc it looked like a guy shrugging plus the symbol for males. I guess on your device it must shown up like a square plus penis. I tried to delete just the symbol for males, but it only let me delete both or neither. Like I said, I have now edited the post.

yeah, from my older desk, this looks like a football play. Not a very good one either.

You Windows heathens.

no, i mean my physical desk, the think that holds papers, monitors, laptops, etc.

JEDIT: Ninja’d.
