    That's a wonderful life, at least.

    Starz has cancelled Ash versus Evil Dead.
  3. The irony - the Old Testament appears to refute the notion that a fetus is the same value as a person. The lex talionus of Mosaic law (eye for an eye) demands the death penalty for murder, but anyone who strikes a pregnant woman in the womb so that she miscarries is only required to pay a fine. The bible would seem thus to be opposed to abortion, but not to the absolute degree "fundamentalists" believe/insist.

    @TheGreatBuzz - Agreed! We're accused of racism the most because most are ashamed of it and try to expose and denounce it where we find it. Other countries are far worse, but sweep it under the rug and deny it exists. My brother lived in France back in the seventies and people would accuse him of being from a racist country. When he would reply "what about your country and the Arabs?" The response would be something like "well, that's different. They're all lazy and criminals...they smell bad...etc." A black colleague of mine lived in Paris and talked about being denied entry into clubs and some restaurants.

    @Renegade7, I used to have a Swiss girlfriend whose mother was half-Italian, and whose father was full-blooded (Swiss) German. Her father's family was disgusted that he was marrying outside his "race." ...and it gets even more ****ed up. When her older brother was born he had lighter hair hair and greenish eyes, and Dad's side of the family were relieved that he had German features. They fawned all over him, until...as he grew older his hair ended up turning brown, and his eye color more of a greenish brown than a blue. My ex-gf, who always looked like an Italian beauty, they refused to acknowledge. She and her brother are dead to their father's side of the family. People suck.
  6. Well, if that's the criteria, then Bride of Sleletor might have a point.

    A friend of mine took a road trip to Reno while he was living in CA and said it was a real dump. Tahoe is supposed to be beautiful.
  8. If Jews really controlled the weather, they would buy umbrella futures, short sell Coppertone, and then make it rain everyday.

    Knocked this painting out last month. Hopefully this is okay to post here...if not, mods can replace with just a link and I will apologize profusely...
  10. I think you're on to something. There's the typical need for the unsuccessful to demonize some person / group / race to place blame for their failures elsewhere, but with a group like holocaust survivors it becomes more acute because not only have they survived worse treatment, but they refused, or were not allowed, to play the victim card in the aftermath. Instead they rose back up in society and more often than not surpassed national averages in wealth and education. Such visible success despite societal prejudice flies in the face of the victimization narrative people like Farrakhan promote.
