I find it funny (ironically) that he goes among the "liberal Hollywood elite" and be welcomed, ditto to the dreaded Harvard.

 

I think Spicer thought he was laughing with him, whereas the the Hollywood types thought they were laughing at him.  But in essence they validated his fuckery.

Well apparently the GOPs plan to kill ACA is just wear the people down and slip something in with out us noticing.  

 

Yeah, so if you want to kick millions off of medicare for tax breaks for the wealthy, go head and sit on our hand watch your cat videos, otherwise call your freaking senator.  Do it, do it now, do it tomorrow, do it every single day.

No it isn't.

 

And who cares if Spicer was on the Emmy's. I didn't seeing it at legitimizing anything. It was a funny bit. Him being laughed at while on the stage was the same as being booed off the stage.

 

That 60 Minute Bannon interview was interesting - I only caught a bit of it - the last 20 minutes that Charlie Rose showed on his PBS show. It's crazy that he was in the White House as an advisor to a President of the U.S. I can see him being a dealer or maybe someone who sneaks a drink into the President, not advice. He just looks like ill. He is great at talking, though.

 

Anyway - with regards to the ACA repeal  - write/call/email all the people representing you - thanks.

I disagree, very much. It was disgusting. As were the after-party pics. He was not shunned or laughed at. I'm sure even Trump interpreted it as a sign Hollywood would forgive Trump in a heartbeat.

I'm with you. He, along with any of the administration who somehow avoid prison, should be shunned by all. Forever.

That will be the case if (and that is a big if) POTUS is removed from office. He would be pardoned and probably be on dancing with the stars or the next season of the apprentice.

Regarding Spicer - I guess I don't look to Hollywood for normalizing or legitimizing anything. And I am not sure if it did in anyway. My opinion of him hasn't changed. I would not watch a political show, where he is participating as a pundit, because I have no desire to hear what he has to say.

 

But him standing up at a Hollywood TV awards show making a joke about the idiocy and untruthfulness of the whole inaugural crowd count is fine with me - though I totally see and understand where one may disagree.

 

I had to google the after-show pictures -- didn't realize that all happen - it definitely looked weird - but they were all probably drunk, anyway and again it's Hollywood.

 

From what little I read about it, it looks like Spicer is having a tough job getting another gig - which is good.

I only saw Raging Bull for the 1st time a couple of month's ago - found it very unsettling. It was good, but I had a stomachache afterwards.

 

Never knew the politics of Woods, before. Always enjoyed his acting, though.

man it's been forever since i've seen Casino or Goodfellas.

 

hell, i've only seen Taxi Driver once, and still never saw Raging Bull (Jake, rest in peace).

 

Wow.

 

Raging Bull, like Calvino says, is unsettling. I think Spielberg said something about it like "it seems like a documentary - it's as if you're eavesdropping on conversations you're not meant to hear..." I think the first time I saw it, Cheers was still in its heyday, and it was insane to me to see "Coach" as a mob-heavy.

 

Taxi Driver is just nasty. I can't imagine a film like that getting the green light nowadays.

The Snowtown Murders (based on a true story) is the absolute grimmest, bleakest movie i've ever seen. i am actually surprised i finished it.

I'll check it out. 

 

In the meanwhile, that title-holder for me is Gaspar Noe's "I Stand Alone." 

 

Apologies for the hijack. Back to politics.

 

The SEC got hacked, and believe that the info was used to make illegal trades. In the meanwhile, they've been dinging firms for not having adequate cybersecurity policies and procedures. Who fines the SEC when they screw up?

So has everybody put in a few minutes today to call some senators? This foul Graham-Cassidy bill needs to be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.  :realmad

 

Let me save you some steps...here are some pivotal senators for you to call.

Susan Collins (202) 224-2523

Lisa Murkowski (202) 224-6665*

John McCain (202) 224-2235

Rand Paul (202) 224-4343

 

* Murkowski's phone line is so impacted that you probably won't get through. Better to send an email to her website.

 

It doesn't matter that you aren't their constituent, if you're not. This is an issue that will devastate the American people, and that makes it an American issue. Be a patriot and help shoot this turkey down.

The GOP isn't failing, they are just succeeding at a slower pace. Because of the uncertainty created by what they are doing insurance premiums are going up this year, which they will blame on. The ACA. They are doing all they can to shut down the ACA websites this year, scheduled outages every week during the sign up period...they will of course blame it on the ACA.

 

The president swore an oath to uphold the laws of the United States, yet here he is actively trying to sabotage a law. Too bad the GOP are solely focused on overturning everything obama did and getting as much $$ to the ultra spoiled mega rich billenials to care about the rest of the country.

Except now they won't be able to repeal and replace as a reconciliation bill. Whatever they replace it with has to have support from Dems.
