If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!

Re: “Virgin Tales

I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.

Re: “My Little Pony Equestria Girls

This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.

Re: “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience

Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol

Re: “The Fault in Our Stars

Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.

John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.

Re: “Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.

Re: “Star Trek

I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.

Re: “A Story Worth Living

This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste

Re: “8: The Mormon Proposition

Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.

Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.

When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.

Re: “At Springs rally, proud 'deplorables' confident in their losing candidate's prospects

Typo - Mr. Miller, that should read "if you sport a Breitbart tee around"...just so hippyhelper doesn't get panties in a wad go all correcty on me.

Re: “At Springs rally, proud 'deplorables' confident in their losing candidate's prospects

Mr K, your thanks for my service is welcome. Not always do I respond that way, because the phrase has become so reflexive as of late.

I can recognize by the sound of their rotors every helicopter we saw: OH13, OH6 (I flew in and sometimes even flew both), Huey (hundreds of air miles logged and I didn't even have a credit card), Chinook (the workhorse that moved our personnel and supplies),CH54 (the Skycrane that moved our guns around the Highlands), and of course the Cobra we all watched in awe. Also, the F4 Phantom, whose eerie whine when using air brakes in a maneuver is still distinctive, the C130 Hercules that carried me around the country occasionally, and finally to Cam Rahn Bay so I could go home. All of those sounds elicit discomfort still.

Thank you for your genuine support.

Donald T Rump, Billy may not have taken him down, but he did at least start the ball rolling. And everyone knows that crap rolls downhill! Looks like it's picking up speed.

And especially for Mr. Miller: You post using your real name because you still have political aspirations...aspirations because you are so convinced you are right. This is free name placement for you, but I'm not sure how far it will go if yu sort a Breitbart tee around. Remember - "Honey badger don't give a shit"...and eventually that sticks to you since that's really all Steve Bannon is about. If those are your principles,and if that mirrors your philosophy then you will get what you deserve.

Me? I'm gratefully isolated in my own little reality with my grapes and apples, my hemp (not marijuana, though I do partake), my wind, solar natgas aspirations, and my delightful opportunity to keep poking at you guys. The biggest thing I've learned is that most folks on here take themselves far too seriously. Lighten up and tell some stories that show you actually relate to the stories you comment on. C'mon, y'all!

Looks like the Trumpster will be taken down by a Bush after all. Billy Bush is George H.W. Bush's nephew and George W's and Jeb's first cousin.

Allow me to thank you for your service, Vietnamized, and to encourage you to keep on posting without holding back. I had a friend in Atlanta who was a Vietnam vet and a poet. The final lines of one of his poems will always haunt me, "Whenever I see a helicopter I expect it to explode."
