    I actually think movies are better, the music, direction, certainly the special effects are better. I can remember the original ‘planet of the apes’ was really good but there were a lot of stinkers around that time, especially coming out of Disney (all those Kurt Russell bombs)/

    I think they are losing money because there are too many movies out at the same time, there are many more options to see a movie than there used to be. Netflix has probably had a good and a bad effect on hollywood.

    And California taxes are probably having a toxic effect.

    I think the technology and the funding has changed so that small independent movies just as good in quality as the Marvel movies are now will permanently end hollywoods influence.

    I saw ’100 foot journey’ with my wife and 13 and 16 year old. It was a hard sell, with the paris horror movie in the same theater but I told them we can watch something scary next time.

    Guess what? They liked it. They really liked it. Parents need to insist a little more on watching good dramas from time to time so they become well rounded adults. We’ll also occasionally watch scary movies.

    This is very sad, the NYT treats many groups unfairly, obviously, but only because he treats a group you assign yourself to makes you drop your subscription.

    This is small, petty thinking.

    I dislike the NYT too for their treatment of Israel. The difference is Im not a jew. I can see hate even if its not directed to me. I also dislike like them for not covering communism fairly, or the tea party.

    J Stewart (who by the way is so ASHAMED of his jewish ancestry he changed his name) needs to be ridiculed. He’s whole act is rolling eyes, and making precious faces that his audience of trained drooling imbeciles have been trained to clap to.

    Is this an overreaction from the seminary?

    Bearing false witness to create a riot situation is about as bad as it gets.

    The world is changing, it wasn’t too long ago when people felt the need for physical copies of music, books or video.

    Nowadays I have only electronic copies of content. How can you own something that doesn’t physically exist? The idea would be absurd 10 years ago.

    The value of a business can be revenue but it can also be market share alone. The world has changed more in the last 20 years than in the prior 1000 years. Exciting years to come!

    When I was that age, looking at the bra and panty ads in the Sears catalog was a big deal.

    These kids rate being sexualized at too young a age. They will be bored with the idea in their 20s.

    Too much information these days too fast, sometimes I think it was better when you had to wait a day to get news from the paper.

    rook, the point is the left has a very dark history with speech suppression right from the beginning.

    As to your examples about the dark ages and puritans, I think you have a very confused way of thinking. These peoples thinking are so far removed from modern men that they serve no useful example. I don’t think you can even call them left or right.

    My point is this, I think we need to have a time where no public responsibility needs to be taken for anything anyone says. I think humans need to evolve and accept people have different ideas but don’t retaliate if you disagree. I think people who suppress speech should be seen like racists are Today (that level of loathing).

    With a name like “Sunshine Crump” I’m sure she’s a delight.

    I think the point is, if you are upset at what someone says, you are a weak, awful person.

    Anyone who would try to get someone fired for honestly speaking their mind needs to be shamed. Make no mistake, the bad people here are the people trying to get Sterling to give up the team.

    I really need to disagree with Norton, the left was NEVER about open and free expression, they were against free speech beginning with Lenin.

    They agree that their speech should be allowed and will fight for that right, they also feel at the same time speech that contradicts their ideas should be suppressed. It’s always been like that.

    Just thought about my question, sure was dumb, of coarse there is a risk, these Hamas rockets are pretty heavy based on the pictures Ive seen.

    Anyone who sends rockets like this over a civilian population do not deserve to live

    You see! they don’t fight fair! They should have let at least one through!

    On a serious note, does anyone know if there is any risk to metal falling down from that height?
