Find Me On:
That’s my school! (I have nothing more to add)
I like Battles, too!
That boy IS my son (in a metaphysical, Tree of Life sort of way).
All the posts in this thread should look something like this one.
Exactly. This thread intimidates me! I’m a delicate internet flower!
Two-legged dog got robbed.
Boo this man!
So, the mere mention of Karl Marx’s name makes you a communist? Got it.
Part of the problem is that some of those people at the extreme end are already on TV every day. The problem is that they’re on channels like CNBC and are given insta-credibility, even when they chose to deride the OWS people and pander to corporate interests.
All of his films have really valid points and are generally done really well. He just needs to learn how to rest his case before he injects himself into the narrative.
I think Moore envisions the “Golden Age of Capitalism” as being the mid-20th Century, when the economy was in a boom, regulations and taxes were high, and organized labor was powerful. This meant that there was plenty of work to go around, labor and corporations were at a more level playing field, the middle class was actually growing as a result of making comfortable wages, and regulations/taxes were such that the robber barons of the past weren’t as prominent, meaning there wasn’t as vast a chasm in wealth between the middle class and the rich. That was a pretty good time for America! (Unless, of course, you were black, hispanic, gay, or a woman, but let’s forget that for now!)
That’s a long-winded way of saying that Michael Moore needs to figure out how to stay out of his own way when conveying a really legitimate message.
This has potential, you guys! So excited!
This is perfect.
The living constitution, indeed!
There’s apparently an entire genre on YouTube of poop-related videos. Internet!
I see what you did there.
I always thought “vertical smile” as a phrase only existed between me and my college fraternity brothers. Because whenever I said it to anyone else, they were very confused and very offended.
Pretty sure no. Grandparents wouldn’t have standing to sue for wrongful death. Ironically, Casey would be the only one able to sue for wrongful death. Granted, I’m only kind of a lawyer (taking the FL bar this month), so I could very well be totally wrong.
As an Orlando monster, I’m just glad this shit show is over. Also, let me recap the already-emerging trends regarding the verdict: people OUTRAGED that she “got away” with murder; people DEMANDING a retrial/appeal; people INCREDULOUS at the terrible education system where kids know nothing about double jeopardy; people INCENSED at how she can confess to the crime tomorrow and “get away” with it because of double jeopardy; people (literally!) implying that they will KILL the attorneys/defendant/jury when they get the chance. Too much CAPS, people!
You take that back right now!
I hate to be all lawyergum, but I think the vast majority of frivolous lawsuits get thrown out pretty early in the process. Everyone’s for tort reform until they actually need to sue somebody.
In other news: don’t these docs look great, guys?

I know I’m really late to the party, but can we talk about True Grit instead? I finally saw it last night. So I would appreciate it if everyone just went along to whatever whim I happen to be on at a given moment.
