karmachameleon: I mean, yeah, it's disappointing to learn the author's views; the book is brilliant and it always sucks to find out the creator of a work you admire sucks balls.

I think America is ready for a movie about a group of people who WANT aliens to invade the planet and take over.

Accused of "normalizing" the Chinese government's brutal incarceration of more than 1 million Uyghur Muslims

Because Republicans are deeply concerned about the treatment of Muslims.

What is that saying?

Those that suck Putin's cock should not throw stones.

People like The Arrival - which was boring as shiat - so they will probably love this even more. The core plot is much better. I anticipate a lot of changes to keep the story engaging. Kind of like the recent adaptation of Childhood's End.

Isn't this why we intervened in Kosovo?

t3knomanser: Gubbo: That your mind went straight to cadavers there might say more about you than you might have intended :p

Oh, I had assumed they were talking about abstract porn. Who among us hasn't jacked it to a Kandinsky painting?


That's how you get a Jackson Pollack.

Brynden Rivers: Someone Else's Alt: GOP Senators; By making a sci-fi tv show based on a book by an author that supports China's bigoted and suppressive policies you are doing a bad thing.

Also GOP Senators; It is fine that any US company can manufacture in China to avoid higher US labor cost and increase profits.

This President has done nothing but criticize U.S. manufacturers for "shipping jobs overseas" to China, and other than maybe Romney which GOP senators have criticized him for that rhetoric? You may argue that he doesn't really believe what he says, but he sure does love slapping tariffs on the Chinese that punish American businesses. More to the point, the GOP is just dandy with it. Your cognitive dissonance comes from the fact that you think it's a good thing to punish American businesses for participating in global free trade, that it won't harm consumers, and therefore Donald Trump can't really mean it when he says he wants to do just that and therefore he must not really have taken any actions that harmed American companies, who then passed the costs down to consumers.

The reality is much different. Take a look at what this supposedly pro-business President (and the supposedly pro-business party that backs him) has actually done for business:

Take a look at how going after the Chinese economically has only hurt us:

But you won't take any of this seriously. Oh no, GOP = pro-business in your mind, always will, and those eeeeevil capitalists must be stopped at all costs. Somehow these tariffs must be good for business, am I right? And the harm the tariffs have done to consumers? It's just fake news, am I farking right?!


I think you missed the point of Someone Else's Alt's post but okay.

Yeah, I forgot about that one.

My only memory of it is that the aliens have backward knees.
