    We can’t. That’s what Bernie or busters should have thought about before they decided to overrule the will of the American people.

    Movie attendance falling is an indicator of discretionary money. I keep saying wages are stagnant and falling. You keep saying they are not. I keep saying the working people have been abandoned by the Democratic party. Unless those people are addresssed and recognized the Democratic party will lose support.

    Please provide me a link to a post where I said wages aren’t stagnant.

    Stop putting words in my mouth, Chet.

    What in the world do you mean, Chet?

    I'm not sympathizing with the lower working classes because I don't believe your nonsense claiming that declining movie attendance numbers are because the DNC isn't in touch with real America?

    Donald won for a variety of factors, mainly our outdated electoral system that was put into place to perpetuate slavery and his campaigns help from, and coordination with, the Russian government. (Note the dozens of charges already filed in Robert Mueller's investigation.)

    Never, ever forget that three million more people voted for Secretary Clinton over Donald. He "won" because of the system and Russian propaganda, not because the people chose him to be our President.

    You want to help the lower middle class? I'm all with you. However, don't claim movie ticket prices are the reason a bunch of angry white people in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania voted for Donald.

    It's a great series. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Yea, I agree Dutch.

    People aren't going to as many movies because there aren't as many good movies being made right now. That, and as you alluded to, at the same time television is having a major resurgence. Hulu, Netflix, and Prime are pumping out top quality shows on a weekly basis.

    I still love movies and go to at least one a week (thanks, Movie Pass). Working from home allows me to steer clear of crowds and nearly every movie I go to is a weekday afternoon matinee. However, I think I'm a dying breed because people find it more convenient to wait till movies are released to iTunes or Amazon.

    Nearly half of eligible voters don't bother to vote for the person who has the sole ability to start a nuclear war. Sixty-five percent of eligible voters don't bother to show up in midterm elections that elect people who can serve as a check on the person who has the sole ability to start a nuclear war.

    At some point we have to start blaming ourselves for the government we have.

    Weak ineffective minority. Why is that just accepted like the color of the sky. Ahhh, it sure sucks but there's absolutely nothing we can do about it. REALLY ? We should demand far more. We should demand it immediately. Nobody cares about the individual politician but they care about their loved ones who are being disadvantaged by a system that is needing to be torn down and restaffed. Seems to me that 96% of the country is obsessed with television and social media. Is our party effectively communicating to them ? The short answer is no.

    Huge problems in this country and no concerted effort to attack the problems. Mr. Perez. What have you done for me lately ? Not nearly enough.

    Demand all you want. Good luck with that though.

    Maybe Bernie or busters should have thought about the fact that being in the minority means that you, by definition, can't get anything done!

    I just don't get why you're so angry about the Democrats not being able to get anything done in this current Congress. You know why we can't get anything done? Because we aren't in the majority! I know you don't want to hear this, but there is literally nothing Congressional Democrats can do if they aren't in the majority.

    You know what we can do to put Donald in check? VOTE IN NOVEMBER!

    I'm not holding my breath though because a new episode of "Dancing With the Stars" will probably be on that night...because, you know, priorities.

    Who cares? The DOW isn't a very good predictor of a company's success or failure and if "what's past is prologue" then GE will be just fine as a company.

    Has anyone heard of AT&T? They were booted from the DOW and now they own DirectTV and are taking over Time Warner.


    I just don't see the "destruction of society" that you're constantly ranting and raving about. Do we have problems? Yes! What country with 330 million inhabitants doesn't? But this whole "the sky is falling!!!!!!" nonsense you constantly spew is a bit much.

    Money is circulating in the United States. That's why, even with a Neanderthal President, people still want to come here. Just imagine what we could be getting done if Bernie or busters didn't thwart the will of the American people in 2016.
