    Each case needs to be evaluated on its own merits. If there's a lack of evidence and/or it smells, then I can't go along. It doesn't matter whether or not I like the person charged, either - fair is fair, IMO. I don't believe in joining the pitchfork brigade just because I don't like a person's politics, religion, movies, etc.

    In the case of Cosby (whom I like as an entertainer), I gave him the benefit of the doubt until I couldn't any longer.

    That should seem like a reasonable statement to most people, but don't try it on John "She has no reason to lie" Oliver (re: his face-off with Dustin Hoffman). Oliver's inability to see outside the narrative is truly mind-boggling.

    Here's a really controversial statement: Hayden Christopher was not that bad, given what he had to work with: the mewling, inconsistent character of Anakin Skywalker.

    While I personally don't think she's lying, there have been people who have lied without an obvious reason to in the past. We always have to remember that when an accusation is made.

    He was noticeably better in the last film because he didn't have nearly as many cringe-worthy lines to utter to Natalie Portman.

    Americans going back to the moon is a colossal waste of money. There's nothing up there but dirt and rocks.

    A lot of things we use in everyday life come from dirt and rocks...

    I never said it was bad. It's just didn't grab me. I stopped reading around issue number 20 something.

    Calling other men "betas" doesn't mean you aren't a "beta" yourself.

    There is no such thing as "Alphas" or "Betas". The concept is used as an excuse for childish behavior.
    "Alphas" are simply assholes who mistake being a selfish, arrogant bully with being confident and assertive.
    They also mistake levelheadedness, having a sense of fairness and being reasonable as weaknesses. People like that are supposedly "Betas."

    America's decline is not due to socialist coddling, but to a subscription to Objectivist dogma that selfishness is good and empathy for those you don't know is folly.

    I just find it hilarious that some guys throw that term around to insult other men when by their own definitions the term could be applied to them.

    Dude: "America is being ruined by these Beta men with no drive who are too afraid of women these days!"

    Me: "Um, aren't you a single man with no job living off your family?"

    Dude: *sputter* "This is an ad hominem attack!"
