I’m always amazed and saddened how uncompromised and deep the rift of politics in America is today. It tears families, marriages and friendships apart. That hasn’t happened over here since the 1930ies, and bodes ill for America’s future as a unified nation built on trust and mutual understanding.

What’s sad about Benghazi and really every other issue is that Republicans once again framed the issue - and rather than at least attempting to re-frame the issue, Democrats just ran with it. They never ever learn, like an abused wife that just takes the beatings instead of standing up for herself.

Some African governments moved beyond that “let’s blame everything on the whites and live like kings on the public’s expense” phase - usually those without natural resources that seem to be a driving force of corruption and civil war - many didn’t.

Gibson is a capable director who funds his films independently and outside of the studio system. As much as the studio execs might loathe him, they can’t ignore his successes. Does that mean he will be allowed to act in blockbuster movies again? Or direct a big budget film with studio money? Time will tell. Read more

Their recent top management choices - Pelosi over Ryan, Perez over Ellison at the behest of multi-billionaire Haim Saban - give the clear indication that they want to continue with business as usual. There doesn’t seem to be any learning curve that “lesser of two evils” might be good enough for Republican voters to Read more

Just look at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ as an example - the entire “Don’t miss” column is nothing but celebrity gossip and style critique, with the occasional bikini chick thrown in for the male viewer, and mostly caters to female viewers. Read more
