Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I'm home sick today and I watched Citizen Kane for the first time. It's a good, not great movie. Tell me why it's so revered?

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

Speaking of political wagers, I have a COMPLETELY hypothetical situation for you to chime in on as you would like. Let's say that you had three even-odds wagers with a friend of yours. You placed 1000 bitcoins at even odds that Trump would not remain President for his entire elected term. You place...

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

Supposedly, there are a bunch of Federal court employees who have a damaging story to tell about Kavanaugh but are afraid to come forward for fear of backlash. I think it may be related to when he was a clerk for a Federal judge who was booted off the bench for sexual harassment. There is a good lik...

Re: 2018 remainder of season injury thread

If the Cubs do manage to win a World Series against Boston or Houston, this "team" has to be considered one of the best ever for what they've done after all the injuries.

It's Maddoning

Joe seems to have pretty significantly mishandled the pitching staff with his hand-picked pitching coach (see Theo's comments about Morrow). If the Cubs don't make it deep into the postseason what are the chances that his contract is not renewed?

I would bet against that happening. Only people who are capable of feeling shame would consider resigning over this. Being accused of sexual assault just emboldens these jackwagons.

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

I don't want Kavanaugh anywhere near the Supreme Court, and I think he could be disqualified for numerous reasons, but I struggle with the Ford accusation because I don't see any way for it to be proven or disproven. I don't doubt that the events occurred, but I fear for the precedent it sets and t...

I keep seeing the comparisons to Puerto Rico, but I think this is a different situation, for better or for worse.

Re: Politics & Current Events

According to 538 Trump's highest approval rating was on January 25, 2016, at 47.8%. His lowest was 36.7 on December 15th, 2017. He is currently at 40.0 and falling.

It's still quite shocking to me that it's that high.
