Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday


On what long-running TV series would you find these gentlemen?


       My Three Sons                                                      Source






My Three Sons is an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until its end on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower andaeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons.

The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather, Bub O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's health issues. In September 1965, eldest son Mike married and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", a new son named Ernie was adopted.

The series was a cornerstone of the ABC and CBS lineups in the 1960s. With 380 episodes produced, it is second only to The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as television's longest running live-action sitcom. Disney producer Bill Walsh often mused on whether the concept of the show was inspired by the movie The Shaggy Dog, as in his view they shared "the same dog, the same kids, and Fred MacMurray".        Source

5 Ways To Challenge Trump

Michael Moore

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore who successfully predicted Donald Trump's election victory outlined five ways to challenge the president-elect in a Facebook post late Tuesday. He urged fellow Americans, who were still in shock over the real estate mogul's election win, to "get to work."

"Brush your yourself off and let's get busy because: a) All hope is not lost; b) There are more of us than there are of them; and c) The roadside is littered with the ended careers of self-absorbed, narcissistic politicians whose arrogance led them to do things that caused their early resignation or impeachment. Don't think that can't happen here," he wrote.

The 62-year-old filmmaker warned: "As bad as we know it's going to be, it's actually going to be worse. A lot worse."

He asked Americans to speak to their local Congressman/woman demanding that they "block all the damage Trump is going to do."

"If he/she is a Republican, they will explain why they 'support the new President.' You then must politely tell them you and everyone you know will work to unseat them in 2018 if they don't act independently from Trump. The calmer and cooler you say this, the more they will believe it. If your rep is a Democrat, tell him/her that you expect them to AGGRESSIVELY fight the Trump agenda -- and if they don't, you will work with others to support a true progressive in the Democratic primary in 2018," Moore wrote.

Nobel Laureates Criticize

Aung San Suu Kyi

Nearly a dozen fellow Nobel peace laureates on Thursday criticized Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, saying she has failed to ensure equal rights for the minority Rohingya people in Rakhine state, where the group says more than 30,000 people have been displaced amid an unfolding humanitarian crisis.

A military offensive in recent months by the Myanmar army has led to the deaths of hundreds of Rohingya, the burning of homes, and the raping of women as well as arbitrary detentions, according to an open letter to the U.N. Security Council from a group of 23 activists, including Nobel laureates and current and former political and business leaders.

"Access for humanitarian aid organizations has been almost completely denied, creating an appalling humanitarian crisis in an area already extremely poor," the letter reads. "Thousands have fled to neighboring Bangladesh, only to be sent back."

Myanmar's U.N. mission was closed Thursday and an email message seeking a response was not immediately returned.

Earlier this month, an Amnesty International report claimed that actions by Myanmar's military in Rakhine may constitute crimes against humanity. Myanmar has come under heavy criticism for its army's forceful treatment of the Rohingya, and international human rights groups including Amnesty have accused the military of mass murder, looting and rape.

Lessons For The Anti-Trump Resistance

American History

As progressives search for the next step in a world where Republicans will control the White House, both chambers of Congress and the majority of statehouses and governor's mansions, the nascent anti-Trump resistance movement has been doing civil disobedience outside Trump Tower, pushing for bipartisan congressional investigations into Russian election meddling and itching to expose his Cabinet nominees' conflicts of interest with the hope of sinking one - or perhaps even two or three - of them. Green Party-led recount pushes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin drew national attention but in the end had little impact, other than to recertify Trump's win, and Democratic efforts to urge Republican electors to vote their conscience, not their party, similarly sputtered.

Still, the liberal resistance to Trumpism has only started to gear up for what will probably be a series of epic battles around touchstone issues of race, immigration, health care and authoritarianism itself. Trump is weighted down by a 43 percent approval rating, making him the least popular newly elected president in the past half century. As the liberal-left works to organize in this environment, it confronts a set of opportunities, as well as tough questions about the path forward: Who should be the leaders of this resistance? Which strategies and tactics should they employ? What organizations and institutions could prove to be the savviest and most influential in curbing Trump's authoritarian tendencies?

The answers will have implications not just for politics but also for the entire country during the coming Trump era. And the paths forward are in part illustrated by America's rich history of political resistance on the left and the right - a legacy that's both fraught and inspiring, filled with blinking yellow lights and solid-green guideposts. The resistance leaders will have at least four modes of viable dissent as they seek to launch a robust movement that can block some of the most feared aspects of Trump's agenda.

Trump continues to court ideas that could trigger a new wave of mass nonviolent protests. Asked for his reaction to the terrorist truck attack in Berlin last week, Trump told reporters that he has been "proven to be right" yet again, implying that his suspicion of Muslims was, essentially, justified all along. If Trump ultimately followed through with his campaign pledge to bar Muslims from entering the United States, if he opted to create a government registry to track Muslim-Americans in the United States, nonviolent protests could easily erupt. Policies that are widely seen as assaulting civil liberties and infringing on civil rights would probably trigger demonstrations that could hinder Trump's agenda and consume his presidency. The women's march the day after the inauguration could be just the start.

Museum of Broken Relationships

Los Angeles

After her husband asked for a divorce, Amber Clisura gave back her engagement ring, kicked him out of the house and tossed everything that reminded her of the ruined marriage. Except for one item: a polished steel barbecue smoker that her future ex-husband had fashioned for her from an old oil drum.

"It sat there on the patio and rusted and rusted, and it became a sad symbol of the relationship," Clisura said.

The four-legged smoker had been a treasured handmade gift, but eventually Clisura couldn't bear to look at it. She considered giving it to a neighbor or selling it for scrap but then read about a call for submissions at the new Los Angeles branch of the Museum of Broken Relationships.

The original museum opened in Zagreb, Croatia, in 2010 after growing out of a touring collection that crisscrossed Europe, Asia and the U.S. On display in Zagreb are artifacts from failed unions, most of them mundane under ordinary circumstances. A single stiletto heel. A wine opener. A worn old Snoopy doll.

But when isolated in a glass case or hanging on a white wall and accompanied by a caption, the objects become imbued with heartache or regret. Or freedom.

Defers To Birth Certificates

Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America once again landed under the harsh glare of the media spotlight for their policies on LGBT children.

Recently, a woman from New Jersey has been speaking to local media about how her transgender son was removed from his local Boy Scout troop because of his gender identity.

Kristie Maldonado, of Secaucus, N.J., told the Record newspaper that none of the children in Cub Scout Pack 87 had a problem with her 8-year-old son's participation - but their parents did.

"Not one of the kids said, 'You don't belong here,'" she said.

The brouhaha finds the Boy Scouts in familiar territory in which the LGBT community and its allies take issue with traditional institutions they consider to be antiquated and in need of reform. To these advocates, a ban on transgender membership is a discriminatory policy and should not be tolerated.

Buffalo School Board Moves to Oust

Paladino

A Trump ally who made strikingly offensive remarks about the Obama family last week was on Thursday told to resign immediately from his position on a Buffalo, N.Y., school board.

In a 6-2 vote, the Buffalo County School Board gave controversial businessman Carl Paladino 24 hours to resign his seat, or the decision would go to the Department of Education. Paladino was absent from the meeting.

Paladino, an outspoken ally of President-elect Donald Trump (R-Con Man), came under fire last week for his racist response to a local survey on New Year's wishes, telling the paper that he wished President Obama would die of mad cow disease and for the First Lady "to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe."

His remarks were greeted by swift outrage, with protesters around the country demanding his resignation. The board's decision Thursday was greeted by a loud and sustained standing ovation from the school board chambers.

Paladino, who was chair of Trump's New York campaign before the election, also once sent an email to a female anti-Trump Utah GOP delegate saying she should be hung for treason and promised to "be in your face" at the convention.

China Says...

Tibet

The Communist Party's control over religion in Tibet can only increase, the region's top official was quoted as saying on Thursday, vowing to step up efforts to expose the "sinister intentions" of exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

Chinese troops marched in and took control of Tibet in 1950 in what Beijing calls a "peaceful liberation". Rights groups say China tramples on Tibet's religious and cultural traditions, charges Beijing denies.

The Dalai Lama, denounced by Beijing as a dangerous separatist, fled to India in 1959 following a failed uprising against the Chinese. He says he simply wants genuine autonomy for his homeland.

In excerpts of a speech on religious policy carried by the official Tibet Daily, Tibet's Communist Party chief Wu Yingjie said Tibetan Buddhism had a fine tradition of patriotism and had made important contributions to maintaining national unity.

But Tibetan Buddhism needs to march with the times, and at the same time as passing down and teaching its traditional precepts it needs to put more focus on teachings that "benefit social harmony and move with the times", Wu said.

Alaska Village Renews Push For Road

King Cove

A remote Alaska village that has been rebuffed in efforts to build a road through a national wildlife refuge will try again when President-elect Donald Trump (R-Grifter) takes office.

The community of King Cove, near the tip of the Alaska Peninsula, for decades has sought a road through Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, an internationally recognized haven for migratory waterfowl.

Flights into King Cove are notoriously unpredictable because of strong winds and mountains. Community leaders in the village of 900, backed by the state, want a road through the refuge so sick or injured residents have land access to an all-weather airport at nearby Cold Bay. The Obama administration rejected the road plan.

Congress in 1997 addressed the King Cove transportation issue with a $37.5 million appropriation for water access to Cold Bay that included a $9 million hovercraft. The Aleutians East Borough took it out of service after deciding it was too expensive and unreliable to operate.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2013 concluded that a 22-mile road over a narrow isthmus in the refuge could cause irrevocable damage to the watershed of nearby ocean lagoons. They include the 150-square-mile Izembek Lagoon, which provides one of the world's largest beds of eelgrass, a rich food source for Pacific brant, endangered Steller's eiders and other migratory birds.

Alt Right Battling

Trumpists

After Republican nominee Donald Trump was elected president, white nationalists, the so-called alt-right, white supremacists and a whole host of other groups on the far-right fringes celebrated the victory. But weeks later, reports this week have indicated that many of these groups are now in disarray and have begun fighting with one another.

"DeploraBall" - a inauguration celebration for alt-right Trump supporters - sparked infighting earlier this week after one of the key figures was disinvited for making comments about Jews. Headliner Tim "Baked Alaska" Treadstone was barred from the event by Mike Cernovich, once considered a leading figure in the so-called alt-right movement, a group featuring many who embrace white nationalist ideologies. Treadstone had tweeted about Jewish people controlling "95 [percent] of American media."

Treadstone also posted the text of what appeared to be a private, expletive conversation during which Cernovich told him to be quiet about the "JQ" or "Jewish question," while also telling him to stop Nazi saluting. He continued retweeting posts critical of Cernovich Thursday.

Some Trump supporters, such as Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos and Bill Mitchell, both of whom are reportedly appearing at the DeploraBall, have come to Cernovich's defense and disavowed some of the more extreme elements connected with the alt-right. Now these folks, who have called themselves "Trumpists," are being branded as "alt-light" and have been criticized by other factions under the Trump-supporter umbrella.

Meanwhile, Andrew Anglin, the publisher of white supremacist website The Daily Stormer has planned a Neo-Nazi march next month in Whitefish, Montana "against Jews, Jewish businesses and everyone who supports either."

How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
