Re: Colour me surprised (not)

Dogpatch, I'm confused. Blacks make up 13.3% of the US population and 3.5% of the Canadian population yet appear to account for 50%+ of actors in television commercials. Beyond just commercials did you see the Grammy Awards or check the Oscar nominees? It's gone beyond silly and laughable. What we'...

If I was a (successful) screenwriter I might pitch a scifi movie where the Earth is plunged into an ice age, and authorities scramble to pump as much CO2 as possible into the atmosphere.

Re: Colour me surprised (not)

I agree that the black inclusiveness movement in entertainment has gone too far. The other day I started watching a period piece set about 300 years ago in Europe. Many of the nobility and a big chunk of the peasants were black. I found it too disconcerting and patronizing to keep watching. I'd lik...

Those of you around a while will know I spent my entire career in advertising, design, marketing and copy writing for ad agencies. I’m increasingly appalled by what is being foisted on us.

Re: Donald Trump banned from Twitter

I don't think that Trump is In on the game, but I do think that he was co-opted, and that led to him losing his re-election. He didn't lose the election. The evidence is overwhelming. The evidence that I've seen is rather weak and unconvincing. It also is unlikely that the bulk of the Republican pa...
