    We tend to watch old black and white movies, and British movies, mainly 1935- 1990 ish. Theres a Russian website weve found has hundreds of old such movies on for free, many B programmer movies, lots of stuff weve never seen, from long defunct British movie studios like Lion Pictures, British Gaumont, Gainsboro Films, Nettlefold Studios, etc.

    The point is to us, our generation ,whats in those films is recognisable and nostalgic, even looking at the fashions, the cars, the houses and gardens, the streets screens. Women were women and men were men back then.

    In a lot of the 1950's and 60's british films for example, you still see the scars of war - empty plots of land in the middle of rows of shops or houses (because those houses were bombed), and areas of land that have been cleared, showing only the signs of old foundations. I remember such things from my childhood. Then you get the old british social conscience films, like "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner", "A Kind of Loving", "Poor Cow", "Saturday night and Sunday Morning". A lot of those were filmed in the old Northern Mill towns like Halifax, Bradford and Bolton, of the Industrial Midlands towns like Nottingham, now infested and ruined and turned into moslem ghettos. We look at those films and its a glimpse into our youth.

    Sounds like INSP. We watch that channel a lot.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    However it pans out (I'm pan-trib!), Christians are promised persecution, conflict, and trials.. along with Divine Peace..

    I must say.. following sports takes a lot of time. Now that I've been boycotting them, i have much more time to work, and spoil the SO. ..she definitely doesn't mind..

    It was such a part of the American male culture.. keeping up with the personalities, scores, scandals, trades, standings.. and having that suddenly be gone shows me some of what a waste of time it is/was. We all try to amuse ourselves while waiting for the Grim Reaper, but there are other things instead of sports. ..not for some.. but i do not miss it, especially with the increasing propaganda and attacks on America.

    I've been tuning out sports for years. Couldn't care less what team can put the most balls in the hoop or carry the most balls to the other end of the field. And while it's great to see that more people are ditching sports, I don't think it will make much of an impact for quite a long time. The sports leagues are no longer mostly cultural institutions; they are agitprops for the left. People with deep pockets (such as George Soros) are most likely keeping them afloat and making up for the revenue lost from declining ticket sales and whatever else. That doesn't mean you can't count out the millions of cucks who will watch and follow this drivel to their grave. It's easy for people on the right to assume that the constantly-declining viewership and attendance is a sign that people are waking up, but it's really because conservative viewers have finally reached their limit of tolerance. By now, I would say anyone with even a shred of respect for America and traditional values has given up on these sports. I don't know what the leagues would have to do to lose their liberal viewers.

    I am an NHL fan. They don't mix politics as much. They do philanthropic things for the community, and celebrate the military and the LEO fans. That and PGA Golf are my only sports endeavors, aside from the occasional Curling match.

    Myself...I truly believe there is a possibility of something happening (divine intervention) before us "oldies but goodies" pass on. Prophecies dictate that it will happen. Similar to what the 3 wise men experienced during the birth of Jesus. Similar, yes.....but has nothing to do with his birth.

    Faith for some is weak....but God's Mercy is stronger

    Watching 'modern' TV makes me feel we moved to Africa. So I read.
