TWD is losing me since Negan arrived.


For at least 1/2 hour, Negan took batting practice on Glenn and Abrahams head. They dragged out that brutal murder scene for way too long. I wanted vengeance!


I couldn't wait for the end of the season to see Rick or Maggie bouncing Lucille of Negan's noggin. But no. They drag it on for another season. OK, now I will finally see Negan brains decorating the set. But no. They let him live.


That was a weak and unrealistic plot. Not that zombies are real but why is their bite is deadly but their saliva is OK.







and the funny thing is that I too once wanted to see revenge on Negan, now I want him to get out and cause more havoc!

Glad Game of Thrones is ending - it's going out on top.  Unlike The Walking Dead, which was an amazing show, and has now become unwatchable, but I feel like I have to still watch it, like Elaine eating those crappy subs just to get the free one.




TWD lost me awhile ago. I just watched the last one to see what happened with Rick.




that show has become just sad....  I miss the days of Shane and his badass borderline crazy ways....




Yea they lost to many characters I liked then they get new ones and your supposed to like them when they just arrive. I don't even know who they are. 


 Shane is now The Punisher on Netflix. I've gotten bored with all these superhero movies and shows. Overkill but like this show. He's a badass but a good guy.




I started watching The Punisher last week and am almost done with season 1 - it started off strong and has leveled off a bit, kind of reminding me of that show Prison Break now...  although I won't put Punisher at the level just yet.  I watched Prison Break almost as a comedy - it was so ridiculous and bad I thought that made it sort of awesome!




I'm onto season 2. I think you should hang in there. 


 I agree about prison break it got stupid. 


 On TWD. I always think how stupid it is to get caught by the Dead who are no faster then a turtle. Run Forrest Run.


 Did you see this Art?

"Some people say city-states that are trying for virtue shouldn’t have walls, but those people’s beliefs are out-of-date — they can see proof of that for themselves by looking at what happens to other city-states that put on that kind of display. True enough: when your enemies are evenly matched and similar in number, it’s not the best thing to rely on the strength of your walls for safety. But sometimes there are just too many attackers for human beings to fight back with virtue alone. And so if we want to be safe from disaster and embarrassment, we have to make up our minds that the best thing for war is to have the strongest, most secure walls — especially with all the new discoveries in weapons and technology that make siege warfare so much more accurate. Asking city-states not to put up walls is like trying to make your territory an easy target by flattening all its hilly terrain, or like not even putting up walls around private citizens’ houses because you think the people who live there will become cowards. And we shouldn’t forget: city-states that put up walls can use them in two ways — they can act as if they had walls, and as if they didn’t. City-states without walls can’t do that. So in fact people shouldn’t just put up walls around their city states: they should also work hard to make sure that those walls are as beautiful as the city-state deserves, and that they meet every military need — the old ones and the latest ones. Attackers work hard to find out how they can gain the upper hand, and defenders should work just has hard at defense — they should use state-of-the-art inventions; and they should study and try to invent new technology of their own. After all, people don’t even try to attack opponents who are well prepared to begin with."

"These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to set a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if such celestial articles as truth and freedom should not be highly rated. The Donald, with an army, a police force and Bikers for Trump to enforce his tyranny, has declared, that he has a right (not only to tweet) but to BS us in all cases whatsoever, and if being BS'd in that manner is not insult, then is there not such a thing as insult upon earth. Even the expression is impious, for so unlimited a power can belong only to Oprah." - Thomas Paine and bertram

Just remember Thomas Paine was instrumental in helping to promote the American Revolution which was founded on the Lockean theory of the autonomy of the individual's rights to life, liberty, and property.  He later became enamored with the French Revolution which was founded in large part on Robespierre's collectivist ideas of liberty, equality, and fraternity.  This almost cost him his head and should serve to caution those who once again are embracing collectivist ideas.

With Paine, as with so many of us, wisdom comes with age.  Paine finally realized that a 'We Society" was preferable to a "Me Society".  Now, can we talk about the guillotine for Trump?
