But have you cancelled and sent them a message? That would be helpful.


The differing political views probably contributed to the marriage...I'm no expert. I think there was drinking and infidelity on his part, but the cause of which I'm not sure of. I don't think the communist-thing was a part of the show.

Robert Young played a very kind and loving father, that I remember.
I thought it was mostly because he was a womanizer. You’re the one that said she was a communist...I don’t know where that fit in.

Robert Young..yep that was his name.

*Suspected* communist. That's an important distinction, because we're talking about the McCarthy era, when many innocent people were accused of sympathizing with the Soviet.

("Mister McCarthy... have you no decency?")

Sure..it is an important distinction but it was @Toulouse that brought up the communist thing.

I would imagine all those celebrities had a lot of people thinking they were a lot of things just like they do now. My whole thing was I didn’t like her show..because of how Ricky treated Lucy.

I always heard he was jealous of her getting all of the accolades and the spotlight that caused their marriage problems.

The "communist" comment was just a random thought, perhaps directed to your sympathies towards Lucy...thinking out loud as to whether that connection may have contributed to the show/relationship somehow, someway. McCarthy was right about most of his accusations, by the way. Take a look back and see what happened after he was destroyed. The left got a big lift and started infiltrating all of society's institutions.

Sheldon Anderson, Vegas mob bosses donations aren't enough? Its more then I'll make in this lifetime.



Really?

Maybe you can tell us how giving 6 trillion to the banks helps our country?

Did you know if i gave you a dollar every minute it would take me just over 31,000 years to give you a trillion dollars. Stop and let that sink in for a minute. Thirty One Thousand Years. A TRILLION is a massive number.

Now, about 6 months ago Trump gave 6 trillion to the bankers while 300,000+ American businesses have shut their doors NEVER to reopen again. How many Americans have relied on food banks to put dinner on there table this year? People sat in lines for hours waiting for a hand out the lines were so long. How many millions are facing eviction? 1/3 of the nation can't even pay rent.

But who cares, we gotta protect the banks says Chump. 6 trillion. Our kids, grand kids and great grand kids are gonna be paying that off don't cha know because Chump sold em down the river.


Why are we still in the middle east? (I know its because we're Israels b****) but seriously. Remember when Trump used to tweet about Obama continuing these endless wars? Its been 4 years with Chump in the oval office now, when does the puppet in chief plan to cut our loses? How many trillions now have been spent on protecting Israel and Afghans opium fields? Do you think its its all sunshine and rainbows over there when American boys are killing themselves at 22 a day?

When has Chump EVER spoke out against the military industrial complex?


Serving our country, you mean by filling his cabinet with Wallstreet? War mongers like Pompeo and Maddog?


What a joke. What we have is a literal actor in DC playing his role, lining his pockets waiting for the next puppet to come in and replace him.



I cut netflix off like 6 years ago, along with all the other main stream garbage. Probably why I'm not part of the left/ right paradigm.
My friend, I am very aware of the dialectical nature of politics in the world and in the United States - Thesis v. Antithesis = Synthesis paradigm. I know that the New World Order "elites" play us off of one another. I've studied this for 20+ years. All that goes on is artificially created, perhaps even this website. But if Trump can delay the Leftists/Marxists from taking power for a few more years, then so be it.

There is a spiritual dimension going on here that you, and most people, are not aware of. Anything else I post about this to you will fall on deaf ears. My choice of Trump is spiritual not political.

Ultimately, my hope is in God.

See my post to Lisa below. I thought she made the comment about McCarthy.

The hearings were a political tool to destroy careers (you know, like the right is accusing "cancel culture" of doing), and the selections were based on hearsay and rumor...but someone from your side of the aisle did it, so it must've been fine.

That type of left/right mindset dissolves all nuance into a clusterfuck of poorly understood caricatures of historical events, filtered through contemporary views and agendas. Historical revisionism is a slippery slope, leading away from objective truth.

(Try this worldview on for size: totalitarian communism, bad. Doing away with standards like the presumption of innocence, also bad.)

Revisionism? Leftist/Marxist sound bites. Nah...historical clarity is more like it. The left has controlled the message for too long. Nice try.

Yeah, that's my point. You can't see anything outside that filter. That inapplicable modern filter. And I'm as capitalistic as it gets, you retro dumbass.

Now I can't help but wonder how far to the right you go. Nazis also hate communists...so I guess the deciding factor would be your opinion on the Jewish people. Say, how do you like them Jews, guy?

(Edit: from hate symbol database..."The white supremacist version of the Celtic Cross, which consists of a square cross interlocking with or surrounded by a circle, is one of the most common white supremacist symbols." Mmhh.)

My friend, I will not be involved in a discussion with someone who resorts to ad hominem and name calling, both of which are counter productive.

Fair, you can opt out of this argument, we're off topic anyway. I won't insist. (I'm not a commie, though.)

I thought McCarthy was found to be right.
My sympathies don’t have to do with her possibly being a communist but being a woman. I didn’t know she was linked to communism.

Netflix has been pushing the envelope for quite some time now. Realizing that I've been ashamedly sucked in by various shows - Turn is pretty cool - I can no longer stomach the latest debasement. I quit watching Green Arrow with same-sex attraction stuff, the same-sex Jesus thing was too stupid to let it bother me, the plethora shows with mind control themes. And now, the oversexualization of young girls with "Cuties."

Hannibal used elephants to attack Rome, and I have a white elephant in my living room - can't ignore it anymore. I've cancelled my subscription to Netflix. Who will join me? There is some pretty good stuff on Pureflix. Better yet, turn the tube off and get involved in your communities politically: run for office, volunteer at a nursing home, invite neighbors over that you've never spoken to. Create communities. Donate to the Trump campaign. I never thought I'd say that after the Bush I and II, but Trump is not the Bushes. And by the way, yes, he is very rich and could pay for his own campaign, but why should he, he's serving our country. Got a little sidetracked...my apologies.

Cancel you subscriptions to Netflix. Be brave. Who will join me and send the message that this is too much. No more. Simply "then don't watch it" will not suffice. We are at war and the cultural "elites" as winning.

Yes, with most of those accused, he was correct. He stepped on the wrong toes and they came after him. We are living the results of that today...

Thinking of your original post, perhaps my initial response was based partly on the knowledge that the origins of feminism (via Gloria Steinem - a CIA operative) were from Soviet Marxism. However, not all feminism is such. There is good, holy Christian feminism, which is what I'm sure you were basing your post on. I'm pretty sure you're a Christian if I remember correctly.

My apologies for any confusion on my part...

No problem. I don’t have to be a feminist to want to see women treated right...Jesus was kind to women to.

Netflix's comment on "Cuties." They could done a documentary and not had all of the suggestive poses. This is just double-speak...Orwellian mind-control at its best.

“Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children,” the company said in a statement to Fox News. “It's an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up – and we'd encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.”

VC wrote an article on the movie "Cuties" and it's absolutely horrifying. For there to be real change people should boycott Netflix permanently. Otherwise they will continue pushing the limits of what's "acceptable", who knows what they will do next.

Hopefully nothing...
