Its called virtue singling and a certain like minded group are being played.


Hang on, what I understood Jack to be saying is that the young, noisy "activists" of today did not go through what we "oldsters" went through, but they are behaving as though they did.
Did I misunderstand?


Ock, that was exactly my meaning.
Thanks! - jack

My response was more directly regarding this quote:

"I’m not saying people don’t face obstacles today, but compared to those whom lost their lives or were beaten, oppressed, repressed, jailed, etc., the idea that there are not enough movies created by, starring,- whomever it may be – that such is somehow equivalent to those real-life struggles?"



Oh, okay.

Can't we just read the stupid question, smile (or frown), and then move on to the next stupid question?


You are absolutely right.

Shoot, I mean, "You are absolutely... right...?"

In fairness, many pass by without any recognition that anyone has even read them. Not all of them get dragged down an alleyway for a political kicking. smile

Yes! And why do I always make matters worse when I reply to the outrage by asking, "Whaddya mean 'I tracked in dog doo AGAIN!', when the last time I tracked in dog doo was Feb 2, 2015 and YOU've tracked it in more recently and more often than me since then?!?"?
Wow! A double stupid, stupid question! - And another night on da sofa!

Why does it seem like some FSMers express their "kookiest" thoughts while the brainwashing drone of TV news is blabbering on in the background?

How come we never hear much from Prince Edward?

Was he the boy who always took his plate of food to the next room in the palace to eat by himself because he didn't want to sit at the table with the other members of the family?

Isn't it strange how Edward wound up with the best looking wife of the three brothers?

George C. Scott died in 1999 and is buried side by side next to Walter Matthau and his wife Carol at Westwood Memorial Park in LA so why is Scott's granite headstone still left blank?

Everyone knows he's buried down in that plot so what's the holdup after all these years with carving the name and dates into the stone?

Did George want to make a "statement" even in death?

Since the Hollywood elitists have recently adopted the late Fred Rogers as "one of their own" would any of them like to apologize for the laughing that went on in the audience as Mr. Rogers began to speak during his 1997 Emmy lifetime achievement award speech? Why were they laughing at him back then when they wouldn't dare do it today?

Really? I never knew this. In the clip of his acceptance speech, there appears to be nothing but affection, admiration, and respect from those in the audience--at least the ones shown on camera. Hell, even Tim Robbins and Rosie O'Donnell come off well here. There was some (appreciative) laughter at Mr. Rogers' opening line, but that was all I could hear.

Perhaps it was another event you are referencing?
