    The bizarre Ashley Judd rantings make a lot more sense now. If she has to deal with pigs like Harvey Weinstein all the time, no wonder she has a maligned view of men. Too bad she's borderline retarded.

    It's funny how quickly the Bryan Singer story got swept under the rug a couple years back, incredible really. All of the major studios have broadcast news entities, and I imagine there has been a tacit agreement by them to keep this on the down low for the entertainment wings. I don't think it's a coincidence that two unattached publications -- the NY Times and the New Yorker -- are the ones to deal with this story. In particular, Ronan Farrow likely has a personal vendetta to follow this story, he hates Woody Allen, who's supposedly his father, but of course not really (that would be Frank Sinatra).

    Elijah Wood and the two Coreys (RIP Lucas) have talked about this a bit years ago. Male child actors have to deal with this bullshit. The women have to deal with it as children and as adults. The Cosby story had been around for years, I had even heard about it long before Hannibal Buress blew it up.

    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Perhaps I spoke too rashly. I forgot his later psychopath turn. I liked Insomnia, and One Hour Photo was OK. He wasn't terrible in those.

    Ben Affleck got a little fresh with a Canadian hollywood reporter back in 2004... but he apologized today so it is all good:

    This guy theorizes that a Weinstein associate planted the initial story with the NY Times last week to "old news" the significantly more damaging story by Ronan Farrow that was set to be published by the New Yorker.

    I also love how this guy states with little doubt that Sinatra is Farrow's real father.

    Did anyone listen to the covert recording linked in the New Yorker article? Weinstein pleads, begs and commands a young model/actress to come into his hotel room for 5 minutes while he showers. She repeatedly says no and finally gets away. Weinstein sounds so desperate to get her in there. Clearly he was in need of his "fix" that night.

    Sheesh, can she just look and act like a normal person one time in her life? Maybe talk like one?

    There's another part to this story that's quite possibly going to blow up. Check out James Van Der Beek's comments. To understand why more haven't spoken out in the past, look at what happened with the Bryan Singer matter.

    Why should she give t back anyway? It’s not like Weinstein made that money from groping people. It’s not exactly blood money. Sure, she shouldn’t have accepted it if she knew the details about him, but it’s weird to expect her to give t back.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes.

    Well, she's not going to, so I guess there's nothing to worry about.

    Listened to it on CNN last night. Very creepy. Also the news reporter who claims he cornered her in a
    restaurant basement and then proceeded to “pleasure himself” in front of her. Hurricane Harvey has taken on a whole new meaning.

    You must be her political adviser and life coach.

    Sure, you can argue that she doesn't need to give the money back, that it didn't come from the bad behavior (and someone I'm sure can argue otherwise). But what "should" she do and say in this situation? Her answer shows how clueless she is to how she looks and comes across. This argumentative approach, saying that there is no one to give the money back to (what?), and then saying she will take care of all of this at the end of the year when she give 10% of her income to charity. That just raises a lot more questions. Are you giving all the money to charity? Or just part of it? Can you do that with political donations? Which charities? And are you just going to count that as part of your 10%, or in addition to your 10%?

    No doubt she anticipated this question would be asked, and that is the answer she came up with. She's defensive (maybe for good reason?). How about a full-throated "We gave all the money back. I wrote the check yesterday." or " We gave all the money to such-and-such charity that focuses on women victims of sexual abuse?" followed by another condemnation of this behavior.

    This is why we have Trump as our president.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Nothing about Trump being president makes sense. But Hillary is perhaps the only person in America that could have lost to him, and she seems intent on spending the rest of her life reminding us of that.

    If the democrats were smart they would distance themselves from Hillary just like if the republicans were smart they would distance themselves from Drumpf. I don't even see enough collective intelligence in both parties to do that.

    My favorite conspiracy radio entertainment in the morning is sounding off on this now.

    Apparently most of the Hollywood studios and content distribution companies are owned by China. Who isn't owned by China? Weinstein's company. This is all just an elaborate scheme by China to force Weinstein to sell his company so that they can pick it up and further their means of controlling the media and messages the American people hear out of Hollywood.
