I reckon I'd watch anything she was in just because she doesn't kneel to the mob. Fuck em.

Its entertaining how some people jump on the major news networks as fake news(and yes it is well deserved) but then post conspiracy theories as facts. As far as sides? I would like to see the whole country prosper and do well. Trumps rhetoric and Chaotic behavior was damaging to the country. He had to go. He lost, denies it, drags his disciples into conspiracy theories. He took a giant shit in the community well on the way out. Biden the petrified pervert is going to be damaging as well but hopefully on a smaller scale. If he appoints actual experts in their fields to appointed positions and not as political favors to the incompetent and leaves them alone things might improve.

Laughable.Biden appoint experts ? Like the one that was a woman and now is a man ? Or whatever the hell it is.All he's done is appoint by political favor.That or he just doesn't have a clue who to appoint and picks Obama's leftovers back up.The only improvement i see coming will be the lack of crying about Trump.We haven't seen anything yet.

Insensitive prick! Gender-phob !!!  He's just being inclusive. By 'he' I mean the most popular president in history. Able to enchant the dead to rise from their graves and vote for him.

1/ Some people are this moronic.

2/ This shit (reports, photos and testimony) makes many of us feel good that we are not so moronic as 1/.

3/ Far as I'm concerned 1/ and 2/ are both pathetic.

 

The US is the most litigious country in the world with the highest percentage of ambulance chasers per 100,000 people.

It is.  DWI,   Street racing for example.

Usually not to the right people though.

 

Innocent bystanders shouldn’t have to pay for the ignorance of stoopit people who can’t make the right choices.

This shit is sand in my ass crack, I like Gina and appreciated her casting as a "future bad lands, badass", because it was at least plausible, with her skills and being thicker (me like) than the starved women, customarily cast as "tough chick", that she could dispatch the bad guys/aliens. Success against multiple defenders is still implausible, but only slightly less than the unenhanced men performing same.

 

The bigger problem is that Gina's comments were neither offensive nor worthy of sanction. Her position was simply a different opinion.  It is not "transphobic" to hold the opinion that those born with higher levels of testosterone be excluded from physical competitions, where physical strength is a key component.  Further, it is not transphobic to support denial, of elective, life altering medications and surgeries to minors. Parents, who refuse such drugs and medical procedures are not demons or even bad parents. In fact, I would argue that parents who capitulate and allow children receive irreversible, elective medications and surgeries, are the real perpetrators of abuse. Gina's comments, did not include "hate speech" or pejorative attacks on a marginalized community. She lost employment for exposing a different opinion, on a social media platform, neither owned by her employer, nor directly connected to her employment. Another casualty, of private companies advancing fascist/communist polices that benefit the Democrat party and subvert the spirit of the Constitution.

 

I would like to see female and male separation, in all sports, eliminated. Participation and advancement, dependent purely on skill. No women's basket ball, no women's football, no women's boxing, no distinction in any sport. Let's see how that works out.

 Yeah it's too bad what happened and it isn't right. If you care e-mail them and complain about it. Maybe.... just maybe, things could change. As far as her opinion... notoriety, fame, money or position in no way qualifies you as an expert on anything. Anyone that follows you because of that, is an idiot and a no mind. If you mouth off publicly to a following what did you expect would happen??? Open a fake account and mouth off all you like and no one will give a shit... as it should be.

That is my concern, Gina compared the current political climate, with the actions of Nazi, Germany. The quoted material below was the rationale for her dismissal.

 

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…. even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews"

 

There is talk of other social media "insensitive" posts in the past contributed to her firing, but I wouldn't give that credence, Lucas films said Gina was dismissed, (Because), "her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable". Take a minute and re-read the quoted paragraph above. When I think of job losing and career ending "mouthing off", it involves slurs, pejoratives, I agree with the standard employed by Lucas films: "social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable". 

 

My disconnect is where or how Gina's statement rises to "denigration of people based on their cultural and religious identities". Much like gun control will slowly materialize by prohibiting private gun sales, confiscation of firearms if charged with a misdemeanor, identifying gun owners (Your neighbors will be utilized in this endeavor) ,registration/confiscation of firearms and finally forced relinquishment.  Freedom of speech, has moved from prohibiting speech that incites violence, to criminalizing "hate" speech, and now loss of lively hood and public ostracization for disagreement on public policy. Historically, gun control and increased governmental dependence are hallmarks of socialism/communism. It begins with disarming the people and providing for the many, but after a while the many become too many and the standard of living spirals down. The government, explains that the downward spiral of the standard of living is some of the many are not pulling their weight. Neighbors spy on neighbors to find these "freeloaders" greater authority is given to government enforcement and the communist state is realized, Yes, similar to cancel/culture,  stimulus checks, Democratic Senators          claiming the need to "root out" Trump supporters, a column last week, where a journalist said she would not (and should not) thank her neighbor for voluntarily snowplowing her walk and driveway because he had a Trump sign in his yard.     etc etc etc

Content doesn't matter, it's an opinion. Notoriety and fame put you in a precarious position to be 'mouthing off' about your opinions. You are much safer if you have nothing that can be taken away. I see this all the time where a person of position, power, fame or notoriety starts telling everyone how things should be seen. All I can say is use this 'power' responsibly for surely there are those who won't agree and will resent it.

Yes, yes comrade, it is privilege to be poor. I forget, my mind is weak, we needn't inform the commandant. I give you my dinner rations tonight, hunger is good reminder. We have understanding, yes?

Da, thank you comrade I'm been hungrier ever since my state subsistence amount was increased from a kilo and a half up to a kilo a day. Makes me cranky listening to those bourgeois running dogs.
