More important than Spacey's and banks's sexual prediliction there are now EIGHT DEAD in what the NYPD is saying is a terrorist act.



Yeah, we know...

The atrocity on the West Side Highway is an act of terrorism. No question.

The purpose of terrorism is to motivate societies to react in fear anger.

How we react to this, at this moment in history, will determine our future as a nation.

Eyewitnesses told police the driver yelled “Allahu Akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great!” — after running down helpless riders from behind, their mangled bodies left scattered behind his runaway rental truck.

The Middle Eastern man was arrested after police shot him in the rear end following a Tribeca crash between the truck and a school bus. Sources said he was waving an air pistol and a BB gun when cops reached the scene.

Agree. For every body they send to our morgues, we send 100,000. It works.

BTW, what's Arabic for "Fuck Allah, and the camel he rode in on"?

Seems he could be a Muslim.
A Muslim of 'Middle Eastern appearance' maybe.

Immigration/refugee bans are being lifted?
Guess the agencies know what they're doing.

Uzbekistan isn’t in the Middle East...

Spacey is being criticized because his "coming out" statement is clearly calculated to take attention away from an allegation of a sexual assault on a minor. I think that's a pretty fair criticism. If you don't,  I can't help you. But at least you got in (what you perceive as) a shot at bank!!!

He's Bisexual. They're the most maligned within the LGBT community. That's why he's gotten shit from the gays and from Bank.

The conflation is the critics, not Spacey.

Worse than this however is the confusion perpetrated as sexual harassment now gets confused with sexual assault. They're not the same thing.

He’s catching hell for giving an opening to those who conflate pedophilia with gay people. It was a dick move.

Agreed. That's why. But it's an unfair criticism. Dick move for the LGBT to conflate his apology as such, and reinterpret his remarks in order to draw attention to themselves.

And banks is still fucked up.

It is NOT unfair!

He did it himself! He said that stupid shit as an excuse for the CRIME he is alleged to have committed in the 80s. All he had to say was sorry.

A lot easier to deal with religion motivated terrorists, over lone wolf maniacs, with deportations and more serious surveillance.

Do you haff your paperssss?

Trump is at an inflection point. Does he go Nixon or Hitler from here?

That... is the question!

WASHINGTON — The lobbying firms the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs are the unnamed companies in the grand jury indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, according to three sources with knowledge of the investigation.
The indictment, unsealed Monday, refers to "Company A" and "Company B" as the firms Manafort and Gates solicited in 2012 to lobby on behalf of the Ukranian government. Company A is Mercury Public Affairs and Company B is the Podesta Group, the sources said.
The revelation of the companies’ identities points to more details about the players involved in the high-stakes venture run by Manafort and Gates to push the interest of a pro-Russia Ukranian political party inside the United States. It also provides a glimpse into the material special counsel Robert Mueller has corroborated on both companies and the potential legal repercussions both groups could face.

Kevin Spacey came out. Officially. But he did it the wrong way! So says the LGBT community, as they once again demonstrate ZERO TOLERANCE for anyone who doesn't march lockstep with their views.

You can't be gay and Republican.

You can't be gay and be involved in sexual assault cases.

You can't be gay as a choice---which he clarified by saying he is "choosing to live as a gay man" , having explained he's had relationships with both men and women, though what that says to the Bisexuals whothefuckknows?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2017/10/30/kevin-spacey-has-set-gay-rights-back-actor-blasted-for-response-to-sexual-misconduct-claim/?tid=pm_lifestyle_pop&utm_term=.3d5cf77328f6

Remember this, bankshot, when you come out.

Do it the right way, or you'll be vilified by the extremist sexual behaviorists on the left.


Dude, he conflated hitting on a fourteen year old with his being a gay man, though remembering Spacey from the 80s it is safe to say he would fuck anything that moved, or stood still long enough.

Using his coming out to distract from the crime he committed, yeah, hitting on a fourteen year old is a fucking crime, he reinforced the superstition gay people are also pedophiles and for that he is being properly castigated. He is giving ammo to all those American Taliban types losing their shit over the possibility the guy taking a leak in the next stall might be a trans person who just might jump their bones and make them give into to their own urges... but I digress.

Spacey would have been better served and roundly cheered if he had simply said, “I apologize to Anthony Rapp for being such a cad when he was a kid.”

But you know that

Like I said, banks, you can think what you want. But that's not the same as knowing what is really going on, and what has really gone on.

But I appreciate how quickly you descend into personal attack mode, given that you can't do anything else.

very Trump like of you.

Wrong again, there was no personal attack

I asked you support your thesis.

A task most of us have been asked for and graded on since elementary school.

If there is a Trump-like impersonator here it is you, casting aspersions of illegality and amorality on a man who is widely admired in his community.

That you can not support your ill-found fantasies you earned and receive and  F.


You demonstrated that you didn't understand what you read. You keep blowing past the answer you were given:
"Inside information from someone who works for the NFL. All I can say. Otherwise, I might have to testify in the court proceedings, which I'd rather not do."

Then you made it personal:

While given your documented past and your reliance on falsehoods (smoke, mirrors and decpetion as it were) , I can understand your aversion to court, and being under oath, and being subject to perjury charges.

It's the same as saying "fake news".

The practice of demonizing anyone who dares cast aspersion on your world views.

It's what you do.

Trump.


“I know something you don’t know... but I can’t tell how I know what I know.”

Go to the Viper Room,
Sure…..party down where River Phoenix O.D.’d….What other city can offer a Halloween venue like that?

They have a memorial at the Viper Room every year for River, out on the sidewalk where he died, there is always candles, flowers, photos, etc. River Phoenix is always remembered.

A local talent agent, Rod Baron of Baron Entertainment, used to throw parties every year at the Viper Room on Halloween, I used to always get me and a couple of buddies on the list, his parties were legendary, we always had a great time. The only bad thing about Hollywood though is the parking, thus you are better off just to get a limousine with your buddies, and of course with a chauffeur there is no one drinking and driving. Rod Baron moved to Las Vegas, and that was the end of his parties, but it was great while it lasted.

And yes, Halloween should not be about dying on the sidewalk, drugs suck. That is a great thing about simple marijuana, you can smoke until you are blue in the face and no one is going to die. Smoke a little weed with your buddies, have a few drinks, and live to party another night.

It looks like the Viper Room is going to have some punk bands on Halloween, that should be fun. It does not look like much is going on at the other clubs on Halloween, although you never know when it comes to Hollywood, anything could happen.

Salute,

Tony V.

Party hearty, Tony!

We could have hung out, back in the days when I was crashing in the valley.
