    Movie Awards Season 2018-19 Road to Oscar

    My impression is, his movies address relevant issues to current times. Even though BlacKkKlansman takes place in the 70’s the theme is still relevant today, as are some of the historical figures (David Duke). I know several people that get frustrated that racial movies only win if they depict...

    Virginia governor at blackface and klan party?

    I was trying to figure out why R’s were wanting him to resign since the Lt. Governor is also a Democrat. Now it is crystal clear.

    Virginia governor at blackface and klan party?

    That press conference was like something you would see on Veep. Behind the scenes, after that, his wife was calling him a total dumbass. He cannot grasp the severity of this, typical white male privelege.

    Virginia governor at blackface and klan party?

    Not only that but based on what he said last night he thought it was him. I may not remember everything I did in college but if someone said that was me in a similar photo I would know for certain it was not. So, he either did things where that could have been him or he has memory loss. The...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Anything from him on drug costs? That’s my knock against him, big pharma ties.

    Virginia governor at blackface and klan party?

    He has to resign, unacceptable and no excuse. The opposition probably saw it during the campaign but it didn’t register with them that it was wrong. It is suspicious that it leaked after the abortion issue, someone had it but it wasn’t useful until abortion.

    U.S. Ladies [#25]: Method in the Madness

    I don’t get any indication that Mr. Liu is living through Alysa. She even said on Today that her sister skated and stopped after her first competition. It sounds like they get to pursue their passions and Alysa seems to love it right now. Maybe she won’t in a few years but I’m happy for her...

    Las Vegas, Nevada to host 2019 Skate America!

    Thanks for the heads up about smoking, do they do a good job at filtering the smoke? I will avoid the casino but I don’t want to smell it in restaurants/hallways/elevator. This might alter where I stay.

    Thanks, going to Vegas as I can get a direct flight.

    Las Vegas, Nevada to host 2019 Skate America!

    Fairly decent rates for the hotel right now, although I hate resort fees. Any hints yet as to where Skate Canada will be? Trying to decide between the two.

    Movie Awards Season 2018-19 Road to Oscar

    I have yet to see Vice or The Favourite but so far my pick for Best Picture is BlacKkKlansman. I’m sure it won’t win based on the age of most voters. Roma bored me to death but I did love the way the women supported each other.

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Just some baseless political and skating speculation. Michelle posted on IG that she was working in the Midwest this past week and then visited a friend in Minnesota. Warren is in Iowa and is getting an election team and political consultants locked down. May not be related but I’m always for...

    Michelle Kwan (Threads Merged)

    So, in the Minnesota IG she mentions working in the Midwest. Could it be she was in Iowa prior to visiting friend in Minnesota?

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    The people I talk to care, of course a majority are Fed employees. We are not part of the shutdown but the department that processes our payroll is. They get to work without pay to process our pay (and the cabinet/VPs $10k raise). I would think if they stay shutdown they will go find other...

    Here we were all freaking out about the fall and rib fracture, turns out it was a blessing in disguise.
