…well-established scientific consensus…
Ah, the well-established scientific consensus that once told us that the Earth was the center of the solar system. That a cell was just a nucleus and protoplasm. That the universe is in a steady state. That single women at 35 years of age had only a 5% chance of ever marrying. And now inadvertent climate modification…which changed to global warming…which changed to climate change…which changed to global crisis and global emergency…which changed to climate heating.
And it goes on and on.

Maybe I am missing something. Squid Game seems to offer nothing but gore. No plot. Much like many horror films where the focus is on the gratuitous violence rather than storytelling.
But maybe I am wrong. Is there a protagonist who overcomes the challenges of the antagonist, thus closing the series with wrongs righted and a redeemed society? A place where Squid Game no longer exists?

Much ado about nothing. Everyone already knows what President Trump said to the people in Washington. We saw the video. And if you haven’t yet, go on YouTube. The evidence as to what was said is there as well as in other innumerable news sites.

Just because a woman is gender confused does not mean that all Japanese people must pretend to be gender confused as well. This woman needs therapy to learn how to accept her beautiful body and femininity.

Takaichi alone opposes changing a law that forces married couples to use only one surname…
At least one of them, Ms. Takaichi, is pro-marriage, thus pro-family, and thus not going to push anti-social policies like sexual diversity.

Whoever can play a character who is male, who is in his 30-40s, whose father was Scottish and whose mother was Swiss, who was a Naval officer, who smokes and drinks, who is a virtuoso at unarmed and armed combat, and who is a skilled and experienced driver should be the next actor to play James Bond.

”…after repeated FALSE claims of misogyny and sexism.”
Have been a Bond fan all my life so it’s been difficult waiting for this film…while at the same time feeling apprehension that the Woke will seek to destroy or seriously damage this franchise as they have done with Star Trek, Star Wars, and possibly with Indiana Jones.
May all our fears be baseless!!

Kono and Noda support same-sex marriage, which is simply a piece of Marriage Deconstructionism.
(What is Marriage Deconstructionism? Marriage Deconstructionists are those who hold the view that marriage has no fixed, natural teleology, i.e. marriage is not anything in particular and is merely defined in a way that the definition can change to meet society’s changing conditions. However, this view is empty and groundless due to its failure to recognize what reality and nature have clearly dictated, i.e. marriages are the long-term unions of a man and a woman.)
Japan, along with the majority of nations, does not need to join the current sexual political agenda of removing objective standards of equality and marriage from society through the creation of policies and laws having nothing to do with justice.
Kono and Noda need to support Japan’s citizens rather than a sexual political agenda of the West.

Very informative article.
The Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan is not only anti-marriage, thus also anti-family, they are bosom buddies with the Communist Party.

…Lucifer is expected to take over from God, who retired after defeating his twin brother, Michael, in a battle for the top job in Heaven.
This is why these shows can do as well as they do.
People’s ignorance of the historical record collected in a tome called the Bible.
Lucifer and Michael are created beings. Limited in innumerable ways. God is the Creator. Unlimited. Lucifer or Michael taking God’s place would be like a spark from a campfire taking the place of the sun.
Movies that ignore the historical record, like “Noah” and “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” do poorly at the box office because paying $18 to see such empty film making is a waste of hard-earned cash.

…who insist gender is rooted in biology…
”Insist”!?! It is simply the recognition of objective reality.
California should support the healing of those with gender confusion.
And with that, California should understand that because a person being gender confused does not require that all California shops and citizens must be gender confused as well.

A majority of Americans wanted every American serviceman and servicewoman out of Afghanistan!?! Really!?!
Then I must be in the minority because leaving 2,500 or so members of the military would have left a check on the Taliban, slowed down their takeover, and would have left a FOB in the region for future contingencies.
Anyway…these children remaining in Afghanistan is another example of President Biden not being in control. Certainly not being presidential. His speeches are still coherent. They simply do not match what is happening on the ground…anywhere.

The State Department believes about 350 more want out
According to the State Department, there are approx. 1,500 Americans who are still in country. 500 of that number is in contact with the US government but unable to reach the airport, which, of course, means that there are 1,000 Americans that need the help that Biden is removing.
And according to Reuters, "...the Taliban are believed to control more than 2,000 armored vehicles, including U.S. Humvees, and up to 40 aircraft potentially including UH-60 Black Hawks, scout attack helicopters, and ScanEagle military drones." For some reason, Biden decided NOT to remove that help.

How much time has passed since the photo was taken is not the issue.
The subject of the photo and his actions, past and present, are not the issue.
Having a photo of a nude child on an album cover is.
And those who have benefited from said photo should be punished and the photo should be censored.
(And those who thought such a photo was a good idea should have their consciences examined.)

How about society rejecting hedonism and moving away from the promotion of pornography? Tobacco is addictive. So is porn.
With every photo, dopamine is released, and with more and more porno comes more and more bursts of dopamine being released…for awhile. As time goes on, however, pornography users need more and more photos to get the same feeling. And that is the trap.

Many unions and critics of mandates have spoken out against required vaccinations, citing personal freedom arguments.
Add me to the list of spokesmen. Since masks and social distancing and disinfectant are sufficient, people should have the right to refuse a vaccine that has not gone under long-term testing while still being able to frequent establishments.

While on stage, the rapper used crude language and asked attendees who weren’t gay men or people not affected by HIV or AIDS to raise their cellphone flashlights. He then incorrectly said the disease would “make you die in two or three weeks.”
We, the readers, do not need to know what a journalist thought DaBaby said. We need to know what he actually said and in context. Otherwise we cannot determine if he is homophobic, i.e. holds an irrational fear, or not.

No she's there so that actors in simulated sex scenes are comfortable - you don't get real sex scenes on British TV or films... that's called porn.
You were right. I was wrong. Ms. O’Brien, according to the article, apparently limits her work to actual fellatio but does not go as far as to actual copulation.
That being said, she and others of the entertainment industry are still promoting philandering and promiscuity in place of true love and true intimacy and true sex that is only had between a man and a woman in marriage.
We don’t need more hedonism. We need more principled self-restraint.

…the director and the actors on all intimate scenes that may include kissing, nudity or sex.
To put it another way, she is a fornication facilitator since she is involved in sex scenes where the actual sex act is actually performed.
In place of promoting sex scenes in entertainment, how about promoting on screen the committed relationship between a man and a woman that intrinsically involves love, trust, exclusivity and permanence, i.e. marriage, instead?
