The sad reality is- all humans are slimeballs at heart. Power doesn't corrupt; it allows the already-existing corruption to operate without fear of consequences. Some people just chuck aside that fear more easily than others. And few places breed power more easily than Hollywood.

I absolutely disagree with this sentiment. While there is a portion of the human population that needs fear of consequences as a motive for good behavior, in my experience the majority of people are motivated much more by empathy.

Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Id have to agree more closely with eabaker’s assertion. I mean, I think human nature is a complicated cocktail of nature and nurture we’ll maybe never understand completely, both of which are weighted and concocted differently for every individual depending on a variety of factors - but however it all works, by in large I think most people are fundamentally good people. We are a social, group species after all.

Good. That region will always be in a mess. Let them figure it out themselves without losing American lives.

While I agree with this statement on the level that we shouldn’t be there, part of the reason why that region is a mess is because large powerful countries like the United States and Russia have been using them to conduct proxy wars for decades.

It also disturbs me when people make the distinction between “American lives” as opposed to those of others, as if some humans lives are somehow just because of random chance they were born in the confines of one country.

US Secretary of Defense James Mattis will retire in February, 2019, saying in his resignation letter that the President “has the right to have a secretary of defence whose views are better aligned with yours.” Speculation is is that this is related to the Syria withdrawal, along with rumors of a drawdown in Afghanistan.

2004 never said their lives were worth any more or less. However, my thoughts are that if national interests are not served by fighting a war, it shouldn’t be fought. A nation should value the wellbeing of it’s own citizens above all else, that’s sort of the point.

I don’t quite know what to think about all this. I like Mattis and I think he’s been a good SECDEF, but I generally have favored a US disengagement from Syria.

So this last week, Gatwick airport had closed down due drones flying in the airspace above it. Causing thousands of people to miss their flights and creating a massive back log.

Well the police have arrested two people responsible for this.

Plus didn't Frank Underwood do a lot of shady poop in House of Cards? That would be like Anthony Hopkins making a video posed as Hannibal Lecter if he were accused of sexual assault.

I'd say this is more similar to Anthony Hopkins doing a video as Lecter if accused of Murder.
OH NO, IT'S GAWDZILLER!! :D

Just wait until the FBI exposes just how bad Pedowood really is. I'm convinced that they have many moles inside Hollywood and that it's just a matter of time before the whole house gets blown down.


The documentary An Open Secret reveals how sex predators gain the trust of child actors and their families, often under the radar of suspicion. When people are motivated by quick money and fame, they overlook what they would normally recognize as red flag behavior from their benefactors.

I also recommend Episode 2 of a USA Network show called Inside the FBI New York, which deals with sexually deviant crimes including pedophilia. The stings are real and the methods used by the FBI are pretty awesome. The SWAT raid seen in that episode is hilarious.

British PM Theresa May's Brexit deal has been rejected by 230 votes

Who didn't see this coming? Even the people who were pushing for Brexit had no idea how it was supposed to work.

This whole thing is a never ending cluster skreeonk, to be polite. There should have been a complete plan in place, that was ready to go after the referendum. I like everyone else in the UK, is skreeonking sick of it and want it to be over and done.
