Can’t see it. Hope I’m wrong. Affleck would do well to remember what Bale brought to the role.
DC will have to put out movies quick in order to bring Justice League to the big screen. At this rate, they may have done better to leave it alone. Do it right or not at all. Marvel did it right. A rush job would be doing it wrong.
IMO, I would have loved to see Hugh Jackman in the role of Batman. He is quite the versatile actor who could pull it off. Another one of my friends recommended Don Draper.
I’ll reserve judgement until the movie comes out. However, this move could be a big mistake.

Reading the comments it just goes to show you can’t please everyone. If you want to watch the new series, wait until it comes out on DVD. I don’t boycott stations or channels. Rather, I choose what I want to watch. The way to alter what a station shows is via ratings. As the ratings go down the station will change its programming and put on what people want to watch. And that is what led to the NFL Network.

Here’s a thought: Rather than complain about those awful transfats, don’t buy the meal. LJS will stop selling the product if people aren’t buying it. Simply the law of supply and demand. Grow up and get a life. The government should stop interfering in our lives.

Can’t see Cage as Rayford Steele. Doesn’t seem to fit the description. Not to mention I think the salary may be cost prohibitive as this remake will not be a box office success (though I hope I’m mistaken).
All in all, this remake is a decade too late. Left Behind would have done well as a TV series in its heyday.
Will the interest and the demand be there? Time will tell.

Rather than bitching, moaning, and complaining, how about proposing solutions to the problems? Everything which is being proposed by the government is merely avoiding dealing with the reality of the debt problem. It isn’t going away.
Step one. Realize government can’t be all things to all people. Sadly, there will be sob stories about how government didn’t provide. Get over it. Ask churches and other organizations to step up and provide.
Step two. Stick to your duties as outlined in the US Constitution. Only those things as clearly stated. If you have to stretch it to fit don’t fund it.
Step three. End all foreign aid. Hurts to be certain but we have major financial problems.
Step four. Institute a flat tax that affects everyone equally. One rate for all gross income. One rate for all capital gains. One rate for all businesses, regardless of type. Flat and fair. No exceptions except as mandated by common sense (yard sales, kids selling lemonade, etc).
Step five. Institute a national sales tax whose sole purpose addresses the national debt. Solve the problem.
Step six. Downsize government agencies and organizations.
Solve the problem. However, we know they won’t and we will all suffer as a result.

Wonder how long Obama can keep up the Sgt. Schulz charade. “I know nothing. Nothing.”
All the IRS tax scandals can go away with two words. Flat tax.
10% tax on gross income, individual and all business. No one and no business are exempt nor are there any exemptions.
10% capital gains tax. Why should this be any different?
5% national sales tax on everything (the tax can be financed without penalty in the case of mortgages) solely for the servicing of and paying down of our national debt.
Only by eliminating favoritism in the form of tax breaks can we truly address the problems. You cannot have special classes. Yes, this will hurt some people. However, it is fair and will help far more people than it hurts.
80,000 pages worth of tax rules and regulations reduced to less than 100 easily. The simpler the better.
Yes, people at the top will pay the same percent as people on the bottom but they’ll also pay more than people on the bottom. It would be nice to always pay your exact amount for taxes. Move the decimal point of your gross income one space over to the left and that is your taxes.
Too bad people and politicians don’t have or use common sense to simplify a far too complex tax code.

Here’s an idea to eliminate any IRS scandal: Get rid of the IRS.
Better yet, make things much, much simpler. 10% flat tax for everyone and every business based on gross income with zero exceptions. Apply it to everyone. Then add a 5% sales tax on everything. Use that 5% tax solely for the servicing of and paying down the national debt. That’s it. Everyone’s 1040 would be one line. You made this much. Move the decimal point one place to the left and that is your taxes. Or is that too difficult?
Too bad Washington idiots will never use common sense to eliminate problems.
Nope .. they are expanding it ... soon to be the enforcement wing of Obamacare (TAX) ... we are so s cre wed.
Would be great, which is why it will never happen. The real purpose of any Bureaucracy is simply to grow itself and all their efforts are in that direction. Rep and Dem need the IRS for intimidation, something we just saw a great example of how they abuse their power.
The answer is THE FAIR TAX!!
Repeal the 16th Amendment and disband the IRS. It is a rogue agency and always has been. They are the American equivalent to the KGB.
Please educate yourself about the flat tax. The poor and middle class would see a HUGE rise in their taxes; the rich would see a huge decrease in theirs. There's a good reason not one single developed country has a flat tax.
Furthermore, people here keep harping back to the past, i.e. to the 1950s, when the country was thriving. From 1952 to 1963, The top marginal tax rate was 91% and the capital gains tax was 25%, compared to 35% and 20% respectively today. In 1955, corporations contributed 27.3% of total federal tax revenues compared to the 8.9% today. We actually subsidize oil companies that are making record profits out of the pockets of middle-class wage earners. Other companies making billions in profits here pay ZERO taxes toward the infrastructure they use to make their money - e.g. physical, electronic, banking and security.
The shift in favor of the wealthy and the corporations has already happened, with the help of tax structures skewed in their direction from 1980 onward. That isn't communism, it's corporate oligarchy. And the trend continues with a fundamental shift in values so un-American that it boggles my mind. It used to be that a honest day's work in this country was considered worthy of an honest day's pay, and working people were respected. Now they're "takers" and only job creators and investors - the "makers" - are worthy of respect. That's a despicable betrayal of our fundamental vialues, and you should ask yourself wh
JAEMD...actually, under a flat tax those that are wealthy pay far more in taxes as they do now. Currently the poor pay very little federal tax and under a flat tax would pay even less. The average 1%er pays less than 8% of their earning in federal taxes due to write-offs and loopholes. Thats why they have tax attorneys and offshore accounts. Warren Buffet paid less that 2% of his income a few years back because of how that income was handled and re-channeled. He still paid a HUGE tax bill but far less than he would have under a flat tax.

So what does the “most transparent administration ever” have to hide?
Oh wait. That would be THE TRUTH.

Amazingly enough the Dow and the national debt are both at record highs.
There is nothing about this market which is genuine except for it being a facade. The market is like that house in The Money Pit with Tom Hanks. It looks awesome and then you move in. Quantitative easing is nothing more than the workers saying it will be another two weeks until they finished. Only this time around it will be the American people who are finished.
If this recovery were real it would be celebrated. Fact of the matter is everyone knows it is fake, even though there are few who will admit it.

Each generation things they will be the ones who will see it come to pass. It is intriguing to see with the advent of smart tvs, micro-chip technology, etc, how this could all come to pass. The government can watch you as your watching tv. They can track you via your vehicles black box and public and private security cameras. They can freeze your assets due to real or implied “terrorist activities.”
Things seem to be gearing up for the 7 year tribulation period. Keep an eye out for a 7 year peace treaty with Israel which allows them to rebuild the Temple.
Remember, a 200-million man army is nothing, especially if you draw from China, Russia and India and other countries along the way. Who said they all have to come from one place? Rather it seems to be implied they will meet in a central location.
What is encouraging is it appears you are seeing the seeds being planted for the Millennial Kingdom. This was something not previously seen.
Remember, the later the Second Coming the worse the Tribulation will be. Only the I AM knows that date for certain but do we really want to pass that heartache along to later generations?
The warning signs all appear to be there as are the signs to prepare for the coming darkest of days.That being said, I can say with confidence most people, myself included, are nowhere near ready enough. We are on the outskirts of this approaching storm. Food for thought: It is always calmest in the eye of a hurricane.

At what point do you say it is enough? The cost of living goes up because wages go up causing goods to rise and companies want and deserve to make profit on top of that. So where do you say “enough”?
At this rate, more people will be in poverty simply due to the minimum wage increasing and them not receiving deserved raises rather than it being due to them simply being poor and uneducated.
For example, if you currently make $50K a year you make $24.03 a hour or just over three times the minimum wage of $7.75. Say they raise the minimum wage up to $12 an hour. Now you make twice as much. Fair? Maybe but you lose your lifestyle as everything else has increased in cost.
Perhaps we would do better by instituting a policy of slowly lowering of the minimum wage to a range of $3 an hour. This brings it back down to the level of entry level workers and no skill jobs.
The problem is a minimum wage always increases and professional salaries can’t keep up with those changes.
I remember when the minimum wage was $3.75 an hour. Yet why is it though we may make 6 times that we seem to have less disposable income today? Everything goes up in price yet your paycheck remains the same.
We seem to be inflating our way to poverty. Too bad my paycheck is unable to keep up.

It’s a shame there is any debate about this issue at all.
There is no denying he intended to rape the 6 month old. “I meant to have sex with her but not for her to die because of it.” Really?
This shouldn’t be up for debate. If convicted of the horrific crime execution should be immediate. Then again, we could jam something attached to a machine and is 12 inches wide by 3 feet deep up his orifice and let it go for a few hours first so he can experience the cruelty firsthand before he meets his maker.
There are consequences for your actions which is why you should think about what you are going to do before you do it. It is a shame the brain seems to be the least used organ of all.

Is a reboot really needed and, if so, will anyone go see it? The problem I see is this is occurring 15 years too late. The demand for the movie isn’t there. They tried to make a movie to begin with when the books were really primed to go the way of a TV series. Now? Too little too late. Time will tell if this reboot is worthy of our dollars.
For the rapture, pre-, post-, pan, etc. It doesn’t matter. I am of the pre-wrath point of view meaning the church misses out on the last seven judgements. No matter which view you subscribe to, prepare and plan as if you’ll see the whole thing. That is the great mistake people are making. Failing to prepare and planning on their departure before things get out of hand. Time will tell if that is time well spent.

I can predict my income will rise every year by 10% and increase my spending by 10% each year. However, my predictions mean squat until my employer gives me the raise. Even then, if the raise is only 5% I will be in trouble if I don’t adjust my spending to compensate for the lack of additional income.
We don’t have an income problem as evidenced by record setting tax revenues. We have a spending problem as spending outpaces income at the rate of $1T+ a year.
Everyone in office would do well to take Economics 101. If you spend more than you make you will increase your amount of debt. However, even if you owe $1M and make $50K a year, you can pay that debt off if you use the Dave Ramsey approach and attack that debt with a vengeance. You may have to sell that $450K home. You may have to sell your two Hummers and take a bus. You may have to kiss your motorcycle and boat goodbye. You may have to go from eating steak every night to eating Ramen noodles. Not to mention you go to Goodwill for clothes and pick up a second and third job.
It can be done but doing so is extremely difficult and sacrifices in your lifestyle will need to be made. The idea is to no longer be a slave to your debt.
Americans are aware of this. Time for our politicians to face that reality. It will be painful for all but politicians must be brutally honest with the public and start saying no to entitlements.
It is always easiest to spend someone else’s money. Too bad that money has run ou

Legalese is everything. Holder doesn’t have the authority but doesn’t state if the President does or does not.
However, if history is indication, the President has that authority even if it is through executive orders. Remember Japanese internment camps or go back to the civil war and what President Lincoln did.
Bring in the story with the 2,700 land mine trucks. Use the land mine trucks due to land mines around internment camp prisons.
Just remember our President is “… not a dictator.” His words, not mine. It is a shame to think that his actions seem to indicate otherwise.
