Re: “Film Review: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

Maybe you're not the right person to review this movie.

Re: “Rochester Lilac Festival announces changes including fencing, checkpoints

What does "check bags" mean? That seems to be a big issue. This is such a fundamental issue that it's in our nation's basic law. How is going to a festival consenting to a search? Has there been public discussion about this? Has the police department discussed this issue, the festival organizers, the Parks Department? I am curious if no one has raised legal issues and I wonder if we should.

It is not, if I need to say it, a problem with an individual's bags being checked, but a problem with not discussing the issue of why we have a protection from unwarranted searches in the Constitution.

Re: “Democracy for sale

The New York Times Company, WMT Publications, Inc., and the thousands of for-profit corporations that we call the lamestream media have always been able to make unlimited in-kind political contributions. These contributions are completely unaccountable, so the value is unknown, but surely they amount to many billions of dollars every election cycle. I'll leave it to the reader to figure out which political party benefits almost exclusively from these unaccountable contributions.

The lamestream media hates the idea of sharing the First Amendment with the rest of us, simply because it hates the inexorable erosion of its own power and influence.

If you lobby for tax loopholes for your own pet special interests (say, solar energy), you can't very well complain when other citizens exercise the same right. The fact is, if you're honestly concerned about political corruption, the only rational response would be to limit government to its legitimate functions. The smaller the footprint, the less opportunity for favoritism and graft. That's an editorial that would make sense.

And what evidence is that?

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Teresa: Thank you for confirming that it was indeed Dave, the man who "killed Judy Garland." While watching the episode I wondered, but it seemed unlikely to me. I guess someone really likes being on this show...

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

Everything about this review was spot on, but I only have one critique. In terms of the partner challenge I placed their performance as following: Adore, Bianca, Trinity, Joslyn, Darienne, Courtney, Ben, Laganja *keeping their assigned personas in mind*.

(Darienne and Ben were funny but it was not like the exercise commercial which was pure comedy, this was selling products and Ru is very particular about challenges in which you sell products).

I will say Bianca and Trinity should have won (in addition to their amazing runway looks) because combined Laganja made it look bad. Yet I still think Darienne and Ben deserved the bottom two.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episodes 7 & 8: Rupersize Me

I know Darienne is a hometown girl and all, but she is coming off as just plain unlikable, possibly due to the edits like you mentioned. But a few more episodes of nastiness, especially towards DeLa, and she'll run the risk of being this year's bully-Roxxy style.
That said--Hallelujah! Laganja is gone.
