And so we can bid farewell to the Bond franchise... Yeah, I know, angry old white man and so on. I don't care. James Bond is 007. End of story and end of franchise. Let them spew their hatred about "Russian internet trolls bringing down the great Bond franchise" after the people responsible for the franchise cut off its balls and are responsible for the end of an era.

Take out your SJW guns and point them at me - I DON'T CARE!

Eh I have no idea who the actress is. I'd have liked to see someone whose chops were more well known. I was a big fan of Edris Elba taking over as Bond for a while. Still am. Dude's got it.

I've kind of stopped caring about the Bond films anyway. Skyfall kind of was peak New Bond for me. I'll still watch me some classic 007 though.

Ditto...it's the stuff of a previous generation, now it's just remilking a very old, dried up cow for cash.
As far as the female/male thing...create your own new, fresh personalities, STOP switching men with women, or whatever. It's dumb and pisses people off. It's about as dumb as making a Wonder Man movie.

They just did away with the enhanced licenses here because no one was using them - and at $40 more for one that's no surprise. If you've already paid $120 for a passport you're just going to use that when traveling anyway.

There's no religious exemptions for lots of stuff - e.g. seatbelts - and they don't kick up a fuss about that. I don't recall anywhere in the Bible where it said, 'Thou shalt not get vaccinated!'. What's their arguement? It's interfering with God's will? How do you interfere with an all powerful deity? Besides these are the same people who claim there's a plan for everything. Well, this is part of the plan in that case so suck it up, buttercup.


The whole vaccination issue is just so weird, but there's always going to be people who hold on to ideas that just don't make sense *cough*flatearth*cough*.
But that's an incredibly small minority, and people shouldn't take that and deliberately apply that to the majority. Doing that is as bad as saying "That muslim/islamist/buddhist/athiest/whatever chopped someone's head off, ALL of them are bad!"

[Edit] Ok, I just did some more research on this, to better educate myself. From what I understand, some object to the original means to create the vaccination, using aborted fetal tissue. Now, my understanding is that fetal tissue is no longer required, but regardless...some maybe doing it because they have issues with its morality, even if it may not apply, but by whose standards?

Also, I'm curious...the flu kills a lot more people than measles. But everyone is fine about getting the flu shot, or not, no worries there. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. If some dude jumped up and said no because of religious objections, I suspect suddenly the internet would be aflame and "oh look religious people are idiots".

Thank Capitalism for loopholes to hide huge sums of cash, for arrogant self-serving delusional assholes. Otherwise that money might end up in the public's pocketbook and be spend on useless things like food, health care, education and making the world a better place. Middlefinger Flamethrower

Yeah because socialism is all about keeping money in the public's pockets LOL

Something that surprised me was the cost of the games. Games that have been out for years, like Far Cry Primal, still going for $49. Then I checked, and it's the same on steam.

I guess I'm getting old. Games years old still charge full price (or almost)? Honestly, though, if the people who made the game are still getting the benefit of that, great!

Texas Valedictorian Says Her Speech Was Cut


Remember, keep it short, thank your teachers, say nothing of importance and don't forget to point to the sky and thank the big man upstairs. Anything else is just ludicrous.


Ridiculous, but whatever fits the narrative pattern these days eh?

Lots of people have had their speeches censored, but honestly, our shock/horror and mock moral outrage at this is very selective. I doubt NPR even mentioned a peep about Christians who were censored.

I don't know, but nothing is stopping you from linking to High School Valedictorians who have had the mic cut off in the middle of their graduation speech because they were Christian.
Just to keep it on the same playing field please provide links for 2 graduates who have had this happen to them in the last 5 years.


edit
Faux Noise also reported on the above mic cuts.
Dallas valedictorian says high school cut her mic for naming police shooting victims in graduation speech

Valedictorian's graduation speech cut off after she brought up sexual assaults on campus



Trust me, I cleared my browsing history afterwards except for my fear of wicker furniture, my desire to play the trumpet, my tentative plans to purchase a hat, six years of improv workshops and 2 girls 1 cup.

First, I personally don't think a public event that people go to is the appropriate place to voice our own crusades, agendas, or ideologies. I don't go to a graduation to hear what each person up there things about the climate, Trump, aliens or whatever. But that's my own opinion.

But here:
School censors valedictorian's religious speech
Student's Valedictorian Speech Censored

It happens. I'm sure some people will criticize the sources, but one explanation is that yeah, it's what people have been saying all along. You won't hear about these "injustices" from media with a certain bias. Or if you do, it won't be with the same outrage or sense of urgency.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter. People justify what they want, people on all sides. But I find it interesting that these articles showed up on Fox news, I wonder if NPR or other leftist outlets gave the same attention to stories like I linked?

Dark Souls + GRRM? I guess killing our favorite characters over and over was not enough for him, he has to kill us over and over now too.

Exactly. And I predict the ending will require a DLC purchase that is rushed and unsatisfying.

So now the government doesn't get to decide how to best protect the country? That's rich. I can see this shot down PDQ.

If China wants their way, all they have to do is say "Trump is banning us" and the democrat party and half the country will immediately scream for the ban to be lifted, Trump hates those people, we should open our borders, let them vote...wait..I'm getting confused about which issue we're talking about now.

Interesting, I'd like to see some sort of chart showing this as children age. I would have bet big money that it would have taken a massive spike around 15.

I think I've got it. I've been unemployed for nearly a year and the Steam sale still makes it so damn hard to resist picking up games for cheap.

I wonder what the difference is between addiction and poor impulse control...

Isn't the root problem a lack of good choices and not taking responsibility for your actions? I mean...who forces someone to get addicted to games? Or drugs, or porn, or anything for that matter?

What bothers me is when it turns into something like an addiction, or a disease, and then people are telling me that insurance companies need to pay for the fix, which means all of us end up paying for it.

Oh boy. Look at all these progressives putting illegals up in their homes. And they're telling everyone that expects people who want to emigrate to do so legally are xenophobic racists.

Brilliant. So smart. Guess you guys have it all up in the bag, should go ask the NYT if there is a border crisis these days. Their answer might surprise you.

After we abuse the illegal immigrants enough, they decide America sucks. Then they all go to Canada.
Without their children of course because we have no idea who the little ones belong to after we yanked them from their parents. But on the bright side only a few of the kids had to die so the rest could get life saving medical care.
Welcome to modern Amerika, ain't it grand.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Well you can scratch that because it means nothing under the rule of king donald.

And, as usual, everyone expects the US to blast their doors open wide, while they lock theirs tight.
Again...hypocrites.
But yes, it is sad that people who made the choice to drag their kids so far, past so many asylum points in Mexico, ignored the laws of the US, had this happen. I understand "progressives" can't grasp the concept that words actually mean something, as do our laws. He'll get voted in again in 2020, because people with half a brain actually want our laws enforced for the good of all, not just those libs agree with.

Not gonna happen, all the geniuses here just don't understand the difference between legal and illegal, it's those citizens who just want our laws to be enforced for a change who are the bad people now.

And Canada has already made clear it isn't interested in helping, it has stricter laws and actually enforces them.

And yeah, none of the hypocrites here are willing to take them in, it's always on someone else's dime. Look at the fit the sanctuary states pitched when Trump actually suggested they put their money where their mouth is.

Agreed, but man it's kinda hard to fight China's government sponsored army of hackers, especially when the US feels obligated to the rest of the world for some reason.

Trump has absolutely no idea what he is doing. He started a trade war because he thinks a trade deficit is bad. Since he started the Trump Trade War to combat the trade deficit, the trade deficit has grown WORSE. To say nothing of the thousands of American companies suffering from higher costs, which they pass on to American consumers. Then Trump has the nerve to brag about how much money he's "making" off of the tariffs. Yeah, WE (not China) are the ones paying that. To say nothing of the fact Trump doesn't legally have the authority to implement trade tariffs unless it's a matter of national security or an emergency, and neither situation applies to the Trump Tariffs. Congress should have smacked his illegal tariffs down as soon as he implemented them, but the GOP has devolved below boot-licking status.
Uh, thats how getting jobs back into the country works though. It hurts for a time, but then it will be much better.
Blame the globalists, not Trump. WTF

80% of job losses in the US market have come from automation, not losses due to overseas workers. Only about 15% are due to overseas workers. While China has been up to shenanigans with regard to trade, currency manipulation, and industry subsidization, tariffs won't create jobs for Americans. Though I hate Trump, I am glad he's calling out the Chinese, even if I don't think he's necessarily being effective. That said, the automation/AI/robotics revolution is creating massive societal problems that we need a domestic solution for, not blaming foreigners. It's going to be THE central challenge next to climate change for all governments going forward.

He may not be as effective as I would like, but at least he's trying to do something instead of just apologizing to the rest of the world for our existence.
It's time to simply take the stand that we have as much right as other counties to look after our own. China is probably the worst when it comes to not caring one bit about others countries, while we care too much.

When you smokers end up with lung cancer I pity your last days struggling to breathe until you choke to death. That is a horrific way to die. Having seen it, I would ask that you stay away from putting smoke in your lungs.

Funny how the horrible, capitalistic greedy cigarette companies encouraged smoking, and how evil they were.
But now, pot is awesome, no no harmful effects at all, hey let's legalized it everywhere. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. And we're not like those evil companies at all, because we care about your health.
