PaulE 904pm - You just restated a publicly known fact. There is a difference between stating what is now banal, and expanding on the significance of such a price surge given the related social statements by Kaepernick and others. Your gleeful 143pm was not reported as a "simple fact", but appeared to be an indication of something more socially or politically significant to which you wanted to draw readers' attention. I was simply interested in what you attributed the $6B surge to - neither a difficult nor untoward inquiry.

Paul, I just asked you a question about something you presented in a comment - kinda like we all do and have always done to get a discussion thread going. You just refused to answer it and asked me one instead - kinda like you do and have always done. That's all.

PaulE 422pm - You again pulled a classic 'Emery' - sidestepping my legitimate 205pm and responding instead with a question of your own. Do you have any idea how tiresome you have made such exchanges in these pages?

PaulE 143pm - Paul, what commentary do you offer on the response of Nike's American customers to the Kaepernick selection? (I presume your joy of this is predicated that it was Americans showed their support of Kaepernick's knee, and drove up the Nike share price.)

[A reader alerted me to another gem of the FUE's logic. He takes to task those who criticize the People's Republic of Kalifornia, and still (gasp!) take their leisure at the state's awesomely scenic locales. The man's brain cannot separate... Continue reading

DonB 431pm - some readers may consider that altright behavior and recommend the boy for PC counseling. To many in this country, protecting our flag is an overtly hateful act that creates fear in the socially sensitive among us.
M 840am - Here's an exercise to see if you engaged brain before blaming "the country's,,,and the world's ills (on) Jefferson State Republicans." Could you please cite some of the things these people have done to contribute to such a broad spectrum of ills? And could you even give a cogent list of attributes that are shared by the "Hard Right"?
scenes 748am - Many thanks Mr scenes. Many of us believe that post-meritocracy is just like now working on your second million, after having given up on your first million. In my career I always hired people on the merit they brought to the job, and that often meant accepting looks, behaviors, and values that were quite different from those of the 'established culture'. The only constraint was always that the employee's non-merit component not be destructive to the workplace.

re DonB 1204pm - IMHO, Sen Gillibrand is an equivalent, if not more intense, nut job than some rightwinger interviewing people going to see a leftwing movie. The greater danger to the nation from its 'Gillibrands' is that they are far more numerous and occupy high positions of power in our nation.

I invite your kind attention to the 21sep18 update.
Gentlemen - didn't mean for the subject of my commentary to be so confusing. For the still confused, it is a testimony to an historical and most likely irreversible social schism America is undergoing today. It is NOT about your keen interest in sexual advances and relations between men, women, animals, and others of indefinite gender or species. Stay on topic.
PaulE 528pm - I'm confused. Your first photo showed the guy and the movie poster, the second cropped out the movie poster. Tell me again what you want this photo to communicate. Thanks.

PaulE 343pm - Your photo of 'Fallout' playing at the Del Oro reveals itself to be nothing but a shoot-em-up action thriller that hardly qualifies as being ideologically slanted or purposed. A little Wikipedia would have saved you the embarrassment. The proposition still stands - NC movie houses don't show rightwing movies due to the inherent censorship instincts of their leftwing movie house owners. But don't get me wrong, they have the right to show what they will, and in this case clearly illustrate the Left's fear of arenas in which ideas will contend.

I must have missed the logic of PaulE's prescription as to where we should properly go to see films that are not leftwing, since Nevada County in his mind is now reserved only for those promoting the Left. This mindset is what RR has been describing for years as a fundamental attribute or even a litmus test for when the Left dominates communications. It is the ideology that is and always has been deathly afraid of the competition of ideas. Yes indeed, our friends and we have had to drive to Roseville to see the D'Souza and Ayn Rand films. The progressives judged them to be inappropriate for Nevada County movie goers.

PaulE 940am - Good point Paul, we should ignore movie stars like Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck, ... Might there not be another reason why the tactics are so asymmetrical, why one side doesn't take every opportunity for the low road (my God, the opportunities)? Nah.
Toggle Commented 4 days ago on Sandbox - 17sep18 at Rebane's Ruminations
The asymmetry of it all. What equivalent movie(s) did the Right produce and show in theaters nationwide? Why would no one suggest that the parade feature a President Obama stoned and staggering down the street? And more, and more, ...

Isn't it interesting that a president-elect's team cannot speak to a foreign government about incipient policies, but a former member of an activist ex-president's should have no problem speaking to a foreign government to undermine a sitting president's policies?

DonB 413pm - The payoffs to protesters are a witnessed fact. I wonder why there is no outrage from the Left, or is that just their SOP?
PaulE, daily conservative newspapers? New York Post, Chicago Tribune, and WSJ come to mind.
RobertC 1104pm - Mr Cross, your reading skills are again on display. RR has a twelve year record of the broad spectrum media inputs about which I write and cite. The comments that you and yours present here clearly indicate the narrow focus of your inputs, because all of you ascribe to me the origination of ideas and attitudes most of which are widely known to at least half of America. Sir, you have neither evidence to support your remark nor a leg to stand on.
