      Now that The Interview and Team America have both been pulled from their Christmas showings, I feel like this is some kind of alternate universe. It seems that North Korea's oppression is now reaching outside of its own borders, and that shouldn't be the case.

      Not a single period "above the fold". Truly impressive. I'm giving you crap, Alex, but I treat your posts like a punctuation Where's Waldo. Cracks me up because I infer how passionate you are about the subject and the fact that there's no periods because I imagine you not being able to take a breath. Keep it up, man.

      I liked the idea Romney tweeted out: make the movie available for free; ask for $5 donations that will go to fighting Ebola. Speaking of Romney ... has anyone noticed that Obama has basically adopted every policy idea of Romney from 2012? And that just about everything he said would happen has happened? Are we sure we didn't actually elect Romney in 2012 and Obama's just there as a figurehead?

      Wow, such quality reporting. You sure do go to great lengths and woeful places to support your existing opinon. What a fucking tool you are, CM. You asked the question, and Poosh answered it. And this is how you respond? Words fail... Explain what is wrong with "i'll ride with you" to the point that it would make someone a degenerate? Poosh never said a hashtag campaign would "make someone a degenerate" so your question is a non sequitur to begin with. Poosh only claimed that the campaign was started by people who were already degenerates. And then he posted an article to back it up. That it fails to impress the likes of you is predictable, but it still illustrates how much of a tool you are.

      Regarding Michelle's trip to Target - http://dailycaller.com/2014/12/17/flashback-valerie-jarrett-mistakes-4-star-general-for-waiter/ President Barack Obama isn’t the only powerful man in Washington who was once confused for a waiter when wearing his evening best. So was a top general in the U.S. Army — by Valerie Jarrett! As The Daily Caller first reported back in 2011, Obama’s top adviser mistook a four-star general for a waiter during a fancy dinner hosted by the Alfalfa Club. According to a Daily Caller source, as the general walked by Jarrett’s table, she signaled to him that she wanted more libation. “I’d like another glass of wine,” she reportedly said. Like a gentleman, the career military man didn’t make a fuss of the matter, according to the source. “The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” the source said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform.” According to a corroborating report by CNN, the military man in question was then-Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Peter Chiarelli. Discussing times they’ve been subjected to racist insults during a recent interview with People magazine, the Obamas...

      1) As Hal also pointed out, the aliens could easily be far “worse” They could be more “enlightened”, yes, they could just as easily find it disgusting that we’re not slaughtering each other (see The Shadows in Babylon 5, for example). Heh. I was just about to site B5. You'll also remember there was a race that thought humans should be isolating the "inferior" members of their own race and letting them die to keep them from reproducing. Aliens might think that too. I think history is mixed on the subject of whether superior technology produces superior morality.

    • On The Torture Report, Iconoclast said:
      What you have quoted is not HIS conclusion, but one of the two views he explains. Yes, but he concludes with, "I myself do not trust anybody who does not clearly understand this viewpoint", said viewpoint being what I highlighted in the quote, namely, "any call to indict the United States for torture is therefore a lame and diseased attempt to arrive at a moral equivalence between those who defend civilization and those who exploit its freedoms to hollow it out, and ultimately to bring it down." The CIA's behavior does seem to indicate, including some of Hal's points above, indicate a CIA who are not consistently rational and indeed undemocratic in places, and should not be trusted with the power to torture and/or use Enhanced Interrogation Techniques. But that isn't the belittle the vast majority who are in a horrific job and trying to do their best every day, dealing with moral dilemmas most of us will never face. This is a valid point; there will always be those who abuse whatever power they possess. But the Hal's assessment of the Senate report makes it seem that the entire CIA, every single person involved with the program, is a pathological liar...

      This is known as “poisoning the well”. Apparently, as far as HAL10000 is concerned, we simply cannot believe anything the CIA says, so don’t bother asking them anything about this. OTOH, sure, we can believe anything and everything the (currently Democrat-controlled) Senate says about the CIA… Considering that the head of the CIA is now documented to have lied, that the CIA withheld information, that the CIA destroyed the torture tapes, that the CIA spied on the committee, that the CIA has now admitted to lying about the number of people in the program, lying about whether anyone died in the program, lying about how many innocents were swept up into the program, lying about the methods used ... I think they've poisoned their own damn well. To use your Michael Moore analogy, this is like him coming out with another movie and proclaiming that this time, he's totally fact-checked everything! I think it's showing how bad the pro-torture line is that May's article Dowdizes Hitchens like that. As CM pointed out (and was downvoted for) that quote is form an article where he specifically says that waterboarding is torture. And then he goes on to quote Orwell, who...

    • On The Torture Report, Poosh said:
      @Iconoclast I think Hitchens actually underwent waterboarding and concluded, hysterically, that it was actually torture. He's still a liberal remember, that he is a man to respect does not prevent him from sillyness at times. He probably meant it was "torturous" which is different. You can think about it like this, would you rather have your nails ripped out, or spend a year in jail? Anyone who says nails is lying as far as I'm concerned. Now, would you rather be waterboarded or spend a year in jail? Anyone who said "jail" would be likewise lying as far as I'm concerned. If you'd rather endure X then spend a year doing Y (where Y is something we all agree is not torture) then either X is not torture, or Y is actually torture and our language is faulty. Just because something isn't torture doesn't make it right or acceptable though, obviously (a single punch in the face, would not be torture, but it would be an abuse). The CIA's behavior does seem to indicate, including some of Hal's points above, indicate a CIA who are not consistently rational and indeed undemocratic in places, and should not be trusted with the power to...

      North Korea needs to be taught a lesson! You Americans need to retaliate by reducing their shithole of a country to nothing but empty fields and worn out buildings, with no food or culture, you need to turn the people of North Korea's lives into empty, hopeless hollow echoes of humanity ... oh wait a minute...

      The actual article. http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/08/hitchens200808 After experiencing it he concludes: "if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture" What you have quoted is not HIS conclusion, but one of the two views he explains.

      Yeah it is odd. I was reading around, there is a clip of her on David Letterman after that shopping trip talking about it and how she felt good about helping the lady. So either she's a complete liar with two stories or People has taken her quote in the interview out of context and put it in as part of her grievances with this country. This almost seems too strange. I'm starting to wonder if People did a cut and paste job. I mean I don't even think the Obama administration could do a blunder this big. If it were Biden, yeah but Obama isn't that stupid. Because if this is the case, they've just opened themselves up to some big ridicule.

      I don't think NK nuts at all. They succeeded at making us look like a bunch of weak ass twits. As for the "racist" email, not sure what was so racist about it. I could only imagine if they gave a movie list regarding Palin or Cruz or anyone on the right. To me this was probably a light-hearted discussion amongst a couple of libs all wet and sticky over an upcoming fund raiser. Sadly though the reason this is "racist" is because EVERYTHING is racist. Example below... Now here's a good laugh. Michelle O on our horrible racist country and her recent experience with it. "I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn't see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn't anything new." Seriously? This is racist now asking for help? How rude of that person at Target asking for help...

      I see no issue with this. It is overdue in my opinion. Love this quote though "We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests" Can anyone guess what other 50 year approach has failed to do anything? Hopefully the next GOP president can quote these same words and some meaningful solutions can be presented.
