  1. First of all, Gaza is not occupied. Israel fully left Gaza in 2005 and kicked out all the Jews who lived there. Unfortunately for the Palestinians, Hamas took over and turned it into a total shithole....A religious extremist place with a sole focus on terrorizing its own people and terrorizing Israel. In response, both Egypt and Israel blockaded Gaza for their own protection. Instead of creating a future for themselves, Gaza turned into one of the poorest and dangerous places in the world. I think it's time to blame and pressure the Palestinian leadership instead of always blaming Israel or Egypt for what they do. Otherwise, the same thing will happen over and over again. The only way to fix this problem is to have a two-state solution that guarantees Israel's security. Otherwise, Israel will never waiver even an inch. We've all learned this time and time again, war after war. It is what it is. And Palestinians would only stand to benefit from having peace with them. They are an exceptionally powerful and rich country for their size. Instead of launching rockets at Israel, the Palestinians should send their children to study and learn there. It is possible, and it will happen one day. The only question is when...
  2. "Made up country" is a very twisted and hostile thing to say. Because on the flip side, one can argue that palestinians are a made up people, that there never was such an ethnic group, kingdom or nation, and that in fact they are really ex-egyptians, Jordanians and Syrians. While that's technically true, I would never deny their existence or right to have a country. I also wouldn't deny Israel's right to exist and have a country.
  3. I think the events at the Capitol spoke for themselves. There's no need to ban or impeach because then it becomes about banning, censoring, etc... and the right will twist the fuck out of it.
  4. Yayyy Jon Ossoff if going to win Georgia. I want to marry him and have a nice Jewish husband. He's so cute and smart :))
  5. Once again, the polls were totally off. Another 4 fucking years of trump followed by one of kids
  6. Are there any news sites leaking exit poll info? I can't take the suspense!
  7. Well Trump just won the election. No doubt about it. People will feel sorry for him because he's in the hospital. There's no question in my mind that he will get another 4 years now. I had hope because polls were quite strong in Bidens favor, but that's all out the window now.
  8. Thankfully those babies were not born! Imagine being raised by a mother that didn't want you, an absent father, a grandmother too old to take care of you, a family that had no money to support you, or having a life debilitating ailment that your parents knew about before the birth. Abortion is wonderful. There, I said it.
  9. This is the nightmare scenario that I remember people being worried about even 20 years ago. Back then, and until very recently, there were five liberal justices, five conservatives, and one leaning conservative. The leaning guy got replaced with a full blown conservative (and apparant date rapist) two years ago, thus solidifying the conservative vote. Now with RBG's death, that conservative majority is practically rock solid for decades. And Trumpf's family will likely be in politics for decades to come as those ugly minions vie to be president too. It's all very sad. She was a true intellect and progressive thinker from that crop of ultra-successful Brooklyn Jews that were raised by immigrants who moved to America 100 years ago
  10. These beasts can barely run 20 meters without losing their breath
  11. Terrible:( But she should have retired when Obama was president and there was a senate majority. It was very VERY stubborn of her not to do so!!!! It's do obvious we would end up in this situation.
  12. How about we ban the bible for its depiction of slavery, prostitution, wars, murders, rapes, violations of women, etc... This is getting ridiculous. No reason to erase history. Our society today is more modern by leaps and bounds and surely everything that came before us is offensive. But let's not ban it!
  13. Is this the full song? Or was it cut down for the music video?
  14. Interrogate the shit out of him. We want to know EVERYTHING
  15. I loved it. She brought back the beginning of the MDNA tour and mashed it with LAP. It was great at the met gala. But it doesn't fit well with campy/fun Eurovision. Everyone I know, old/young/gay/straight was genuinely excited to have Madonna perform. It felt quite amazing and showed me that people are still really intrigued by her. I wonder if you all got the same feeling from people you know? Unfortunately, they were let down and got nasty towards her.
  16. I think it was the voice plus a dreary version of LAP and a song no one knew. Had she smiled more and sung old songs that engaged the audience, it would have been better. She nailed the Superbowl. I dont think she understood what this Eurovision thing is about.
  17. Ugh now there are articles all over the media mocking the voice-corrected youtube video. And even youtube videos comparing the two clips. I hate this. She's the best fucking pop star ever. I'm going to watch live 8 and the climate change performance (whatever it was called).. It'll make me feel better. She was superb in those -- happy and cheerful.
  18. If she makes an statement about the performance, she will probably focus on the controversial part of it with the political statement, etc. But if she does, she's totally missing what the general public is complaining about. The political aspect for the most part fell on deaf ears with the media. 90% of comments were about the performance and vocals. The Iceland singers made a far more controversial political statement so the media focus was mostly on them on that aspect.
  19. This. The purpose is to entertain everyone and make everyone realize you're the best fucking pop star that ever lived. She's not getting younger and there will be fewer opportunities to do that. Also, it would make a huge difference if she would smile:))) she did that a lot in Sticky and Sweet, and it really makes the crowd happy too!
  20. This is something that madonna is very stubborn about. As a fan, I love anything she does. But the audience here was literally the biggest she has ever had and she needed to match the performance to the audience. What added value is there to play a new, dark, gloomy song with a ghetto rapper in the most camp song contest in the world? At one point, the background video in Future made me feel like I was in the fiery pits of hell! The gas masks were scary! I think two uptempo EIGHTIES songs plus a bit of a new song would be great. No one cares about Future. Even the 3.5 minutes she spent on Gimme All Your Love in the Superbowl was too much. I get that she prefers to showcase her new stuff, but to an audience of 200 million, it's totally pointless. Just imagine that someone like Bon Jovi would have taken that stage. I'm a casual fan that never purchased any of their albums. As a casual TV viewer, I'd be thrilled with a 3 song set of Living on a Prayer, Bed of Rose's and It's My Life. It would even convince me to purchase a concert ticket. Any new stuff they sing would be a total bore.
  21. The general public can be very vicious, and they tend to not forget mess-ups. This is why this whole episode is so distressing. We see how the public destroyed the reputation of big name artists (michael, whitney, the list goes on....although, quite frankly, some deserved it). Madonna does not deserve it. So she had one bad night, big deal. Like I said before, I think people secretly are infatuated with her and really like her. She just didn't meet their expectations that night... I think the performance would have been better if she had time to do a 3rd song. A classic 80s song like La Isla Bonita.
  22. As far as the US goes, no one will know about it. So no need for damage control there. This is really a Europe issue.
  23. Social media is bashing her relentlessly today...on facebook, twitter, instagram and comments on news websites. Even at work, people spoke about her and trashed the performance. I'm literally having a bad day because I always want people to like her. HOWEVER, what I am noticing is that many people actually were looking forward to her performance and were even excited about it. It shows how much people do view her as a legend. Let's face it, her 80's music is implanted in everyone's heads forever. So I think people were just let down. It's unfortunate. She kicks ass in concerts. She just needed to smile more, do an uptempo old song and everything would have been ok.
