    Quite right, there is absolutely no political bias or pressures in Hollywood. What a joke that guy is! Galaxy Quest, still good tho.
    If only it was 30's germany then we could rid of people like you.
    I agree, the best way to show folks how Anti-Nazi you are is to say something only a Nazi would say. Be sure to let me know how your efforts to find the Final Solution to the Alistair Problem goes.
    I have no doubt there is an "in crowd" in Hollywood, that prefers to surround itself with progressive opinions. At the same time... Gary Oldman got into hot water for saying Jews run the movie business, until some jewish comedian pointed out that, in fact, 4 out of 5 studio heads are jewish, as are a bunch of other folk. Saying "its like 30s Germany around here", when your bosses Grandpa may have died in the concentration camps, is a pretty retarded thing to do.

    There are just better ways to point out groupthink than to invoke Godwin.

    Its certainly not 30's Germany. Now he just looks like the ignorant pig knuckle he is.
    Quite right. The only 1930's Germany today is the Trump Administration and their Fascism-in-Action. Damn Nazis.
    Yeah, or we could all take some responsibility to stop with the retarded hyperbole. It's not ok when liberuls do it and it's not ok when conservatives do it either. Do you think he needs a safe space he can get away from the constant pogroms and fear of being beaten up or worse by angry aryan people in brown shirts?
    I lack the experience in Hollywood to judge but... my google-fu tells me there is some basis to Tim Allen's claims and that in fact people who have a non-leftist viewpoint are blacklisted from directors and actors to hair stylists and grips.

    Oh lord, Comey was asked in real-time whether a Trump tweet about the hearing he was sitting in was accurate, and had to diplomatically call bullshit.

    What has the world come to.

    Apparently the US will announce a ban on electronic devices "larger than a phone" on flights going into the US.

    US Airlines will be exempt.

    edit:

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKBN16R2JN

    By David Shepardson and Mark Hosenball | WASHINGTON

    U.S. authorities are planning to ban passengers traveling on certain U.S.-bound foreign airline flights from carrying into the cabin larger electronic devices in response to an unspecified terrorism threat, U.S. officials told Reuters on Monday.

    The new rule is expected to be announced as early as Monday by the Department of Homeland Security, the officials said, adding that it had been under consideration since the U.S. government learned of a threat several weeks ago.

    A source said the rule would cover nearly a dozen foreign airlines. A separate government official confirmed an Associated Press report that the ban will impact 10 airports in eight countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Reuters reported earlier the ban would include airlines based in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The officials did not name the other countries.

    The officials said no American carriers were affected by the ban, which would apply to devices larger than a cell phone, and none travel directly to the airports impacted from U.S. cities
    Passengers would be allowed to carry larger devices in their checked luggage like tablets, portable DVD players, laptops and cameras.


    Royal Jordanian Airlines said in a tweet on Monday that U.S.-bound passengers would be barred from carrying most electronic devices aboard aircraft starting Tuesday at the request of U.S. officials, including those that transit through Canada. Passengers can still carry cell phones and approved medical devices.

    Al Riyadh newspaper, which is close to the Saudi government, reported that the civil aviation authority had informed "airlines flying from the kingdom's (Saudi) airports to U.S. airports of the latest measures from U.S. security agencies in which passengers must store laptops and tablets" in checked in baggage.

    Al Riyadh quoted a civil aviation authority source as saying that these measures from senior U.S. authorities were relayed to the Saudi interior ministry.

    Saudia Airlines confirmed in a tweet that U.S. transportation authorities had barred carrying larger electronic devices in cabin luggage.

    The White House declined to comment.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, David Lapan, said the agency has "no comment on potential security precautions, but will provide an update when appropriate.

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly called congressional lawmakers this weekend to notify them of the plan, congressional aides said.

    In July 2014, the Homeland Security Department stepped up security of U.S.-bound flights, requiring tougher screening of mobile phones and other electronic devices and requiring them to be powered up before passengers could board flights to the United States.

    Let's go see what fox is saying about this

    Yes, Democrats coaxed Comey into revealing some potent conclusions, especially the unambiguous declaration that Russian interference was aimed at harming Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and that the Kremlin had a distinct preference for Trump in the election.
    Even fox has given up on the 'Russians did nothing' line..

    Russians would certainly try to do something but the effectiveness of any taken action considering US govt is in question.

    I 100% believe that the hacking and release of info damaged Hillary. It didn't need to make a significant effect because the election was so close (20,000 votes the other way and we would all be bitching about Hillary is destroying the country), so the question is did it make any effect (which it probably did) and more importantly did Trump either ask for it or know about it and chose to do nothing. That one I'm not so sure on.. I mean hes an idiot and I think he was capable of asking Putin for a hand (and I would imagine Putin would jump at the chance the do a favour like that for the potential president because that would be a favour you could call on and KNOW he was going to come through), but the question is, is he a big enough of an idiot to think that literally no security agency in the world (bar the Russian one) wouldn't find out about it and then attempt to use it to their advantage.

    So the debate is really, how stupid to you think he is?

    Oh, also fox went on to then laugh about how congress got tied up asking about the wire tap when they should have been asking about the russia/trump ties. I dont think its as big an issue as they make out because firstly, they can always ask him to come back or stay longer if needed, and secondly he said there was an ongoing investigation.. Not really much more he was likely to say on that seeing as its ongoing.

    That's still not the same thing as 30's Germany. It's more like 50's 'Murica #MAGA.

    Because you want to talk about some turbo autistic shit instead of actual US politics.

    It all starts with the act of silencing followed by the sound of silence. In nerd speak Hitler and Nazi's get referenced so much because when the movement started they rolled a 20.
