The movie sacrificed something in pursuit of a punchline or a gag every five-to-ten minutes. It's like the movie was trying so hard to be tongue-in-cheek that it almost approached self-importance from the other end.
Overall I agree that it was fun and entertaining, but it's definitely one of the weaker films in the Marvel franchise.
There's been evidence.. but you can't find it now, because the independent labs that did the research were bought out by Monsanto, closed down, and the evidence buried. I'd imagine that now they proactively buy out anyone who has anything negative to show the world, and shuts them down before they can even tell anyone what they're finding.
Do you have evidence of this or are you just spouting paranoid theory? And don't tell me "just Google it" or any other similar smart-ass comments. You're making the claim, you provide the evidence.
Where would you start cutting waste from? Personnel? Maintenance and equipment? Welfare programs? Military budgets?* Wild-land fire-fighting efforts in rural America? FDA monitoring? The Education Department? The lovely sequestration game that BOTH major political parties brought down on us is already limiting what agencies can accomplish. Yeah, yeah, "do more with less", blah blah blah. There are only so many hours you can make people work in a day before they burn out. There's only so long you can run equipment on a shoe-string budget before something breaks.
For the record, I am NOT a Democrat and I do understand numbers when I put a dollar sign in front of them.
*Killing the F35 would have saved us a lot of money. Killing it now would still save us future expenses associated with making that bucket-o-bolts work worth a damn and the infrastructure upgrades to go along with it. Write your Congresscritters.
The only people calling white people evil are the people getting upset that anyone else values diversity. It's a straw man argument.
I recommend browsing this thread. There's whackjobs aplenty on both ends of the spectrum.
On a side note, I flew first class once about three years ago when Southwest delayed me for five hours due to overbooking. I considered flying it again next time I had to travel but the prices were enough to talk me out of that.
Now, the militarization of the regular police force is something else entirely. Patrolman Krupke doesn't need an automatic rifle with gee-whiz optics and an up-armored assault vehicle just to patrol the neighborhood beat.
