All I Want For Christmas Is A New Open Thread

I must admit I have mixed feelings about Sony cancelling the release of The Interview. On the one hand, America wins. On the other hand, so does North Korea.

I’m gonna be really pissed if it becomes my patriotic duty to pay $20 to see a really awful movie.

      I don’t know if Cubans want a Taco Bell or not, maybe since they’re poor and Taco Bell is cheap…….but I assure you LOTS of Cubans would LOVE a Lowes. Why is it Shep thinks a Lowes would ruin Cuba? They could fix things, paint, etc., and somehow that would ruin Cuba???

    So it turns out no fences on our southern borders bc Obama’s been negotiating. Cartels need room to expand.

    Just had this conversation:

    My kid: We learned in class that Asian Americans have the highest average incomes.
    Me (while folding clothes) : RACISM!
    My kid: and that Asian Americans have the highest graduation rate
    Me ( throwing a shirt at her to fold): OPPRESSION!

    Kid collapses in laughter.

    Just a typical parenting moment here LOL

      Bought Rosetta Stone 1 -5 for kids birthday months ago. Got called racist because it was s not Spanish. Contrary to popular belief I do not spend my days buying language lessons. I am far to busy expressing racism elsewhere.
      7 year old out of the blue asks for a foreign language course. You jump for joy you do not say Spanish is more marketable. Screw that. She got it worked hard for a few days became frustrated ignored it but now she spends about two hours per week I’m all about that base bout that base.Why would you care if someone else’s kid is studying French at home Then to call me racist???? Crazy.

    THe thing is, Sony never should have green lit a film that focused on the murder of another country’s leader. Yes, Kim-boy is a raving loon, a criminal psychopath, destined for the fires of hell. I don’t defend him. I loathe him and all his kind. But just like that ghastly woman Hilary Mantel (who’s written a revenge-porn fantasy about the murder of Margaret Thatcher), the film-makers here are gross and inappropriate and have committed such a complete ethical fail that it’s mind boggling. It’s wrong to turn the murder of a real, living person into shlock entertainment. They’re calling it a comedy! Really? The scenario is comic? What’s happening in N Korea is comic? Poking a country like N Korea in the eye with a sharp, clueless stick is comic?

    Hollywood is pretty much a lost cause, these days.

    Before I turn in for the night: Wasn’t it all the buzz, when bronco was running the first time, that he was the cool guy who knew how to use social media and he had to fight to keep his Blackberry when he became POTUS ? Now we’ve lost the first cyber world war…..

    Cuba and North Korea prove that an asymmetrical war does not exist. The reality is that Sony folded over their product because NK applied a combination of threats and actions that damaged them at the highest levels. Communism beat capitalism.

    The Cuba thing is another example of Barack Obama waiting until the GOP makes a concession to jab a stick in their eye. Had Obama done this the day before the budget was passed, the Republicans might have been forced to show some balls instead of making a deal. Obama’s China analogies are bullshit. The US is obligated to deal with nuclear countries. Cuba has no nukes. We don’t have to do anything to open up relations.

    If the first world empires of the past had the weapons of today, they would have no reservations about using their full arsenal to defend themselves, even if their opponents didn’t have the same weapons. We ended Muslim oppression in the Barbary Wars by overwhelming force, not by negotiation.

      What concession? The big banks got the right to use FDIC-insured money to gamble with derivatives again, ERISA was modified so that pensions of those already retired can be reduced without notice and without recourse, and Citigroup got the prohibition against Federal bailouts for derivative swaps repealed. All cleverly hidden in the “Cromnibus” bill.
      No concessions, and everybody wins. Well, everybody who actually matters to Congress, that is. Bipartisanship at its finest.

    I can’t believe we have two more years of this crap–I would be happy if he stayed on the golf course for two years.

  15. Kathy says:

    Cuba’s biggest products–sugar and cigars. Really

  16. Propertius says:

    It looks like a perfectly dreadful film. Then again, The Satanic Verses was a perfectly dreadful book but I wasn’t happy about a deranged psychopath like Khomeini trying to tell the everyone in the world what they couldn’t read. I’m not any happier about a deranged psychopath like Kim trying to tell everyone in the world what they can’t watch.
