If you don't like it then don't watch....then stop bringing up Fox News when you liberals are backedRead More into a corner or rush Limbaugh. These are not suppose to be political shows yet for some reason they choose to put a man in that slot with a political agenda. Bad choice in my opinion.
Brian N April 13, 2014 at 09:13 am
Colbert will have no political agenda on The Late Show. Maybe you should read more about the actualRead More man instead of making comments based off if a 'character' that he plays on a completely different kind of TV show.

WMS826- dont blame cbs and colbert, blame the almighty "Free Market". CBS makes money byRead More having good ratings. Colbert has a proven track record of winning awards and getting good ratings. If you "conservatives" produced a better and more entertaining product than maybe a conservative leaning host would have been chosen as a replacement. I'm a libertarian who enjoys colbert, he often mocks republicans but also mocks democrats and obama. he spent weeks making fun of obama, the aca roll out, and nsa spying. unlike fox news who will slam democrats but never go against "their guys" even when they screw up. colbert also admits he is a comedian unlike fox news who pretend to be "fair and Balanced" news. here's the problem with current republicans: they love the free market accept when it works against them- colbert has good ratings and is chosen as a replacement, republicans cry "war on consevative values" instead of admitting colbert just puts out a more entertaining product. they have an imaginary war on christians and thinks christianity belongs in public schools, but if muslim budhism or any other beliefs are mentioned in schools they are the 1st to complain. christian parents recently sued a school for teaching kids yoga they got all hot and bothered when bloomberg tried to limit soda sizes to help with our obesity problem. they said its our choice as americans to drink as much soda as we want even though it has harmful health effects, however they will fight other peoples freedom to smoke marijuana. they believe in the "trickle down" effect for the rich (even though they keep a lot of the money in off shore banks) to help the economy, however dont believe if you raise minimum wage it will have any type of trickle down effect (that money would not be banked over seas it would go right back in to the economy).

Snookie recenlty appeared in the TV series "Supernatural" and also on a WWE wrestlingRead More event where she did a triple back flip off the ropes so she seems to be trying all different venues for exposure.

Michael B. Jordan discussing his portrayl of Johnny Storm / CineMovie via youtu.be/NRzKI2-T1Yg
Lincoln Farquharson March 21, 2014 at 12:15 pm
I feel like I will be repeating what's been said, but I think it was foolish to cast a blackRead More character as Johnny Storm. How will they explain his sister being white? and regardless of how they explain it, the dynamics of their relationship may be lost to the viewer. They are taking a big risk there. With that said, had they cast the Thing as black or possibly even Reed Richards, you would get no argument from me. It's not that the characters were originally drawn white or black because that decision is personal bias on the past of the artist and the economics of what image will sell, but it is based on their personal character. Not other race can play Malcolm X or Robert Kennedy or Mahatma Gandhi, because their race is part of what made them historical figures. A white person, as another example, can not play Storm or Black Panther, but one could play Bishop.
Hookerman March 21, 2014 at 12:52 pm
Lincoln, there is a big difference between an actual person and a fictional character. CharactersRead More are often portrayed by actors whose physical appearance is much different from that described in literature. For example; in the book One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the character of Randall McMurphy was described as being tall, with thick red hair. Somehow, people had no problem accepting the portrayal of Jack Nicholson, who is short with thin brown hair.
Lincoln Farquharson March 21, 2014 at 05:26 pm
It's about depiction. Real or fake. Comics are visual books, so a character isn't described. If weRead More want to be strict, most of the real life depictions of comic book characters are wrong (Rogue, Iceman, Magneto). Since we apparently are not going for exact replicas, we have artistic license to change a few details. Race plays a part in the character development and ultimately the storyline of several characters and comics. You can't change the race for those characters without affecting everything else (Storm, Black Panther). Other characters were simply drawn that way because, as I said, artist bias and marketability (Nick Fury, Reed Richards). For this particular case, the Storms are brother and sister and the stories and development of character is based largely in part on that relationship. If the race of one changes, without proper explanation, then the race of the other should change. Throwing a black character in the movie just for sake of doing it without respect to canon or continuity is disrespectful to fans and unimaginative. Had Reed Richards or Ben Grimm been made black for this movie, no arguments can be made.

How soon we forget. When The Gay American broke his leg on LBIand helicopters were dispatched toRead More rescue him, fortunately iron rods were inserted to facilitate his recovery. His wife and Security chief were there to monitor the insertion process and subsequent removal after the Gov. was satisfied with the procedure.

Gee larry WWII was before my time but I heard it was something. Since you remember it you probablyRead More also know why the Fairness Doctrine is no longer in practice. The FCC under Reagan ended it. When Congress tried to re-instate it Reagan vetoed it. Freedom of Speech. Remember? But really, how many networks can we have whose only focus is on the next missing blonde teen girl, black kids (including the president) that scare old white people and urging you to buy gold because the sky is falling can we have?

Seems like we haven't had a good "elected" governor since Tom Keane. Richard Cody did aRead More fine job as well for the short time that he was there. I suppose its hard to get good people to run ... in the meantime, it looks like Christie is about to begin the 3rd act of his nightmare. http://newbrunswicktoday.com/article/breaking-powerful-developer-received-sandy-aid-has-no-experience-building-affordable-housing

"Doing the right thing makes a candidate unelectable. The voters are doing what the people areRead More asking." "....the state of America is a bipartisan choice of unsustainable irresponsibility. There is no "responsible" party or "conservative" party. It's all bread and circuses." I could not have said it better myself; absolutely agree. Re: this new format, the articles seem easier to access but the comment section is inferior. I second Mel's question: how do you reply? The green dot seems to indicate a reply as opposed to blue thing which may mean a new post, but how do you choose on over the other?

Robert - I think there is more common ground than not. But people get caught up defending the flagRead More along partisan lines - and I am certainly guilty of that at times.

Christie is too busy traveling around the country to spend time on New Jersey. That is why it'sRead More critical that we stop Christie now- not in 2016. If he succeeds in winning another four years, he will just waste our time travelling to Iowa, New Hampshire and Florida, all while ignoring us right here in New Jersey.

Lol. They should post their receipts for everything so people can see where their money goes!! I'veRead More never seen any charity ever ever do that. Gee I wonder why? Actually, Im not wondering why I already know lol
Bob Friendly November 3, 2012 at 04:56 pm
I would I imagine that in your country no one vents when they are upset? I think this is more likeRead More a smack board right now because people are aggravated. Have you no shame Mr. Patel? Have you no shame or decency? To come on this patch page and berate those who are hurting and suffering and freezing right now is the actions of a true coward!! Do you kick a dog when its down Mr. Patel? You have no shame! Lol

After 20 years of primarily Republican administrations, our Extreme Right Wing neighbors areRead More apparently unable to accept the unfamiliar image of competent Federal and state officials doing their job extremely well in a time of major national disaster. Republican, Democratic and Independent government officials have done an outstanding job - by working effectively together. All of us in Northern California should be reassured that this effective Federal and State collaboration and cooperation is now in place... because we all know that someday we are likely to need it after The Big One strikes here. I saw US Air Force C-130s landing utility crews and equipment from Midwestern and Western states. I saw US Navy helicopter carriers move toward the Eastern Seaboard to provide rescues and shuttle supplies. I saw US Army ready-to-eat meals and drinking water being distributed in New Jersey. I see Federal reserves of gasoline being released and trucked in to relieve the fuel shortage. I see the Army Corp of engineers mobilizing to help evaluate and restore shattered infrastructure across the region. I haven't seen a single Federal or state official standing in front of the cameras, making this massive effort into a "photo op." Not one. Are you sure you want smaller, less capable government? I, for one, am grateful that this is the government we've got.

I am currently reading the book now. Got it for my 50th. Birthday and I cannot put it down. I am aRead More second cousin to Bruce (his maternal side) & there is plenty of stuff in there that Peter uncovers that I just never knew about. Great job Peter!
Robert Zerilli December 2, 2012 at 10:27 pm
Great job!
Liberty November 27, 2012 at 07:07 pm
The following says it best: Parents need to know that while this book is on many short lists for theRead More Great American Novel, and with good cause, it is one big Parental Advisory from cover to cover, starting with politically incorrect racial references in the second sentence and progressing rapidly to variations on sex, violence, hatred, and people treating each other badly before the plot's even gotten under way. And this in the context of a mental hospital, so there's an extra element of pathology to it all. There is not merely smoking, drinking, cursing, drugs, and gambling, but also hookers. The protagonist reminisces fondly about having sex at age 9 with one of his contemporaries. In short, it's not for innocents or the faint-hearted, yet it is often assigned to upper-grade high school students. Parents may want to read it themselves in preparation for discussing any issues that arise -- both the peculiar behavior and the literary themes.
Hookerman November 27, 2012 at 08:30 pm
Of course you fail to include the source of this drivel you post, which is not surprising. Yes,Read More there is sex, violence, drug and alcohol use… as if a 13 year old is unaware of these things. And as far as “politically incorrect racial references”, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn uses the ‘N’ word throughout. Does that mean that Twain’s classic should also be kept from teenagers??? (according to your source, probably yes) Here’s what’s amusing to me… the popular book Hunger Games deals with teenagers violently killing each other for sport, and somehow we conclude that this is appropriate for teenagers (it is classified as a ten book), and yet a realistic portrayal of a mental hospital is not. That sums up the idiocy of your argument.
Liberty November 27, 2012 at 08:55 pm
CommonSenseMedia is the source, one of several that say the same thing. They didn't say it wasn't aRead More good book, they said it should have a Parental Advisory. The idiocy here seems to be in your mind. I don't think any teenager should read Hunger Games, since you brought it up, or Cuckoo's Nest.
