    There are often people with some credentials willing to express opinions on the secret plans of the people they disagree with politically. It doesn't mean they're right.

    The main argument in the...
  2. There was more to the voting rights act than the...

    There was more to the voting rights act than the specific provision that some states and localities should be treated differently because of racist policies generation's ago. Things have changed...

    This made me laugh.

    Does anyone think Bush believed he would make things worse for the Iraqis.

    There are also white supremacist arguments against the Iraq war. Plenty of racists would believe...

    I liked most of Brand New Day.

    I do also like plenty of stories where a hero falls or screws up (Green Lantern: Emerald Twilight, Heroes in Crisis, Infinite Crisis, Civil War)
  5. The argument about the voting rights act isn't...

    The argument about the voting rights act isn't that racism has disappeared but that we shouldn't use generations old determinations about which places are especially racist.

    He got married in 2010.
  7. If you're talking about the orange guy, he's been...

    If you're talking about the orange guy, he's been a player in politics for a while. He had a lot of media attention, and helped out Republicans by sandbagging Pat Buchanan's Reform party bid in 2000....

    Gerrymandering does not appear to be that big a deal right now.

    A look at the current congressional map suggests that it's not helping out Republicans running for the House as much as you would...

    That doesn't make sense with her previous record.

    She kept a relatively low profile during her first two years in the Senate, largely avoiding the national media.

    It seems to me that she's not...

    Wells may have an interesting take on Mary Jane, just because he married a woman with creative ambitions who went on to be a well-regarded cast member on one of the biggest TV shows on the planet.

    Reception is mixed.

    There have been some really positive reviews. It made a few best of lists, even if some people HATED it.



    I think we can forgive Romita Jr being enthusiastic talking...

    It is interesting how critical consensuses can develop and change. Quality is a factor but not the only factor.

    The American Film Institute surveyed critics and film professionals for their...

    Why do you think so?

    Is the modern take on 70s spy thrillers more appealing to critics circa 2032?

    Poll: What will be the best-regarded MCU film?

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been the best brand in movies for the last decade. But the question of its legacy is a little bit weird, because there are so many noteworthy films, even if...

    I think our main difference is just in figuring out the right procedures.

    It would be ex post facto punishment to create a new law and go after him for something he did in the past. Though he...

    I like both, but high school Peter clearly has a better batting average, with the Lee/ Ditko run, Untold Tales of Spider-Man and Ultimate Spider-Man.
  17. I liked his run, but I don't think this would be...

    I liked his run, but I don't think this would be a great idea.

    He's said what he wanted about the character.

    He's also not very prolific. It seems obvious the most profitable model for...
  18. Yeah, it is really self-serving. And the endgame...

    Yeah, it is really self-serving. And the endgame seems to be to get a pretext for officials to reject the decision of the voters.

    There is certainly an argument that Democrats are trying to make...
  19. I don't think there are sufficient fixes to...

    I don't think there are sufficient fixes to prevent bad people from getting elected.

    It'll happen every now and then.

    You may be arguing with points I haven't made.

    That said, there is a...

    As I've said before, laws implemented today in the United States would have a different context than laws implemented in Germany given its history of denazification, as well as a legal tradition...

    It's important in this context because there seems to be a contradiction between the suggestion is she's irreplaceable, and the idea that there's nothing special about her so that a character with...
  22. As I've noted before the context for the passage...

    As I've noted before the context for the passage of Holocaust denial laws in the United States would be different. But there do remain serious objections to German free speech laws.

    If charges are...

    The moderators here are unpaid volunteers on a hobbyist website.

    It is worth noting how rarely any of them venture in the political thread, which is unfortunate because I'm sure some of them are...
  24. If we're discussing the broad topic of German...

    If we're discussing the broad topic of German laws over the past few decades, it does seem relevant to note that 16,000,000 Germans (roughly a fifth of the German population) lived in a totalitarian...

    I've been hammering this point but it seems weird that a big argument seems to be that there isn't anything special about Mary Jane, but she's the endgame, so they can give completely different...
