OK. Let's assume that it isn't a joke.

You want to get mad at Trump for telling them to turn over the contents of Hillary's emails because they may contain classified information, but are not mad at Hillary for putting classified information in such a poorly-secured server such that the Russians having them is already likely? Does that about summarize it?

Comment Re:The Theater Experience (Score 1) 283

Well, in some ways the theater experience IS nicer.

At the price of tickets, I can't afford to take my kids, to my wife and I get a child-free experience.

Plus, I cannot afford a 40-foot screen at home.

Still $7 for a soda that costs them $0.25? No thank you. I understand some markup, but I refuse to be gouged.

I think you are right. But, as a devil's advocate, trade policy is not legislation. So maybe in Trump's bloviating buffoon mind he thinks he can raise the import duty / tariffs sky high as protectionism to force jobs to come back. Only an idiot would think that - but then the misogynist xenophobe racist divisive psychopathic serial liar Trump is sort of an idiot.

Typical. Those who shame others for generalizations and stereotypes often commit those same actions in the same sentence..

...but not today!

Why isn't Rip Torn in the film?
Rip Torn isn't in the movie, because he was arrested after breaking into a closed Litchfield Bancorp branch office in Lakeville, Connecticut, where Torn maintains a residence. He was charged with carrying a firearm without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespassing and third-degree criminal mischief. The Connecticut State Police said that Torn broke into the bank thinking it was his home.... On December 14, 2010, Torn pled guilty to a litany of charges: reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and the illegal carrying of a firearm and was given a two-and-a-half-year suspended jail sentence and three years probation.
