    Re: Alex Jones' bad day

    There's a difference between stating an opinion versus stating as fact something that is not a fact.

    Re: Alex Jones' bad day

    Fraud is a crime. Inciting violence is a crime. Yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater is a crime, unless there is a fire. Slander and Libel are not free speech.

    Bogus comparison. This man has been judged by juries. He's been told to pay tons of money to his victims. That's because he lied ON HIS SHOW.

    Re: His tax returns.

    Write your reps. At a minimum, one should HAVE to release tax returns to run for office, especially president.
  7. Re: Movies that have held up and those that don't

    "Harold Lloyd's Wide World of Comedy" was funny as hell.

    Some of the old silent movies hold up.

    Some Laurel and Hardy and Abbott and Costello films hold up well.

    Yes. I remembered the name about 30 seconds before I clicked onto the bilge just now. I thought it a fun flick.

    I was thinking of the '51 version, when special effects were limited. Never thought of it in terms of the cold war.

    THEM had, for the time, very good special effects.

    Re: Modern cars are way too complicated.

    I had a car with a floor button that told the wipers to make one sweep. We rented a modern car for our trip to Fla. a few years ago. It was much too complex for me.

    My problem with "JAWS" is that once that got the harpoon into the shark, they'd have tied the other end of the rope to the bow of the boat rather than use barrels.
