Re: “First Slice 12/22/14: Sally Yates is Obama's pick to become next deputy attorney general

@ citizen
That's about 5 minutes' worth of time, and I am not about to give up my day job.

It's not opposition research - it's to partly to underscore the complete nonsense of Kahlil English's post, "Her husband works for the Atlanta Speech School. That has nothing to do with Nathan Deal. He's (Sally's husband ) is not at all in politics at all."

And it's partly to call him out for his hypocrisy in criticizing Not Surprised for (alleged) wrong information. Kahlil obviously did no research at all.

Re: “Super Visions: 'Guardians' Part 2

>Hard to say what preconceived notions some people carry into a movie with them, but I'm pretty sure the director displayed no hatred, mistrust, dislike, or mistreatment of women in the version of the movie I saw in theaters.

Ed Hall replies:

What makes /Guardians/ my least favorite of the Marvel films I've seen is the coupling of its indifference toward its female characters (Peter Quill's forgotten-about alien lover, who pops back into his awareness only after she announces her presence aboard his ship, is played for laughs by dint of disposability) and its inconsistent handling of them (again, Gamora's agency waxes and wanes as the need for male characters' prominence is reinforced).

Does such treatment rise to the level of misogyny? Like everything, the phenomenon is in part contextual. Compared to Hollywood films overall, I'd say it offers more of the same. Compared to other /Marvel/ movies, it strikes me as wanting in the progressivist impulses that keep me returning to Marvel's material (see: /Iron Man 3/).

Re: “First Slice 12/22/14: Sally Yates is Obama's pick to become next deputy attorney general

@Broch, if that's all your oppo research on Comer Yates could come up with, don't give up your day job!
Do you want the postman appointed to Vice Chair of the state commission on deaf issues? And several hundred people must have donated at similar levels to the GA Dems.

That said, remind me of one tough case Ms Yates has taken on. She sure didn't look hard at recent Governors' self dealings or Mayoral derring-do. Of course, nor did her predecessor. That's why they call it the Atlanta Way.

Re: “First Slice 12/22/14: Sally Yates is Obama's pick to become next deputy attorney general

@ Kahlil English
You shouldn't chide another poster about wrong information until you've checked your own. Here's something to reflect on.
1. Comer Yates is the Executive Director at the Atlanta Speech School - the top ranked staff member, not just another employee.
2. As a Democrat, he ran against Cynthia McKinney for the 4th District US Congress seat in 1996 and lost in the primary. He ran for the same seat in 1994 and lost to John Linder in the general election.
3. He contributed $1,000 to Michele Nunn's campaign this year.
4. He contributed $1,155 to President Obama's campaign in 2012 and $2,300 in 2008.
He's obviously a political being with substantial ties to the Democratic Party. Some might say his contributions are stealth contributions for his wife, who is not to appear partisan.

Re: “Why local protesters blocked a Buckhead intersection

When the inconvenience of standstill traffic, lasting 90 minutes, spells multiple collective responses such as "just run them over" this ladies and gentlemen is a psychotic /sociopathic mind set, that has become an acceptable STANDARD.
The silent Presuppositions that a traffic jam entices more rage than the oppression brought on by those who are sworn by oath to protect us, denotes a retardation of logic becoming a STANDARD.

YOU people, with your opinions, and eyes tightly closed, stick to your f#(+ing day jobs.
That's all your really concerned about anyways... Your careers, and picket fences have consumed your precious limited time alive, consumed your minds to the point where your blindness is the only thing that brings you COMFORT....
You people who have replaced your own souls, replaced your essence with that of a full time job.

You know who you are, and your probably getting pissed off reading this.
Well, I own my own company, work almost everyday, but that has nothing to do with me being HONEST about what's real.

What SANE thought makes YOU people, who - in the name of comfort - ignore injustice, think you are ANYONE qualified to say anything other than "aww another traffic jammm.... :("
It's certainly not sane one.

@ Kahlil English
"Her husband works for the Atlanta Speech School. That has nothing to do with Nathan Deal."

Maybe not at the school, but he has contacts outside of school. Recently reappointed for his second term by Governor Nathan Deal, Mr. Yates serves as Vice Chair of the Georgia Commission on Hearing Impaired and Deaf Persons and is past President of the Atlanta Area Association of Independent Schools.

Her husband works for the Atlanta Speech School. That has nothing to do with Nathan Deal. He's ( Sally's husband ) is not at all in politics at all. So your info is wrong @Not Surprised.

Haha - yeah that's exactly it. Somebody finally gets it!

The last thing a cop wants to do is shoot someone. The paperwork alone is a bitch!

I'm guessing that's the last time the "Arts Cinema" tries to aim for a more 'urban' crowd.

Re: “Why local protesters blocked a Buckhead intersection

Oy was actually on the fence about whether not the police should be allowed to slaughter negroes with impunity; then someone blocked traffic and he made up his mind that it's fine. It's how any reasonable human being would respond, I think we can all agree....Don't you people get it? By breaking traffic laws, these scofflaws are alienating otherwise reasonable racists who would have shown a little sympathy if they'd protested on a neatly cordoned off sidewalk where they could be ignored.

Great, transportation for tourists clogging already clogged Atlanta streets. Ill conceived at best.
