I don't think you can call it censorship

because HBO is not the government but I feel that the only reason not to show it would be if not enough people wanted to see it. In high school, I did an oral book report on The Catcher in the Rye even though it was banned at my school. The only reason I did it was that I really enjoyed the book. I would not have done a book report on a book that espoused my beliefs if I felt it was badly written. I like Gone With the Wind even though I do not agree with the way that it portrays slavery. You don't like the way it portrays the South, fine, don't watch it. How many times have you heard a conservative say that a certain show should not be on TV and you said, if you don't like its message, change the channel?

I like the fence.

It shows that he is a coward and it is a great place to hang pictures and artwork.

10% of unarmed people involve blacks.

20% involve whites. What color is the other 70%?

Thank you.

Yes, when I read your post I remembered that episode. I can actually remember the scene where the shelf is lifted.

I can't find what I am looking for.

Does anyone have stats on people who died while being arrested or after arrest by race? Such as chokeholds or shot while handcuffed.

Did Joe Friday ever fire his pistol?

You gave me something to think about. Nothing in society is ever about only one thing.

Thanks for the good news.

I had been worrying about that eruption in only 500,000 years.

The CEO of the company should call the WH.

Tell them they have a present for Trump. Could they bring it over give it to him in the Oval Office?

The highest-ranking member of the Klan that is not in prison.

Until he is found guilty.

They will not be a permanent minority party.

It might be the minority party after the election, but the pendulum never stops. I have very little faith in humans as a species. We may have stopped devolving for now and maybe will evolve for a time, but I believe that in less than 20 years our lives on this planet will begin to come extremely difficult. I am 72 years old and I believe I have will live long enough to see the beginning.
