|Jul-10-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: < technical draw: We have a new dictator today: Park Chung Hee of South Korea. Yes, South Korea. Not the chubby kid from the north. More about Park Chung Hee later.>|
You can call that segment "Hee Haw".
|Jul-10-18|| ||WannaBe: Okay, (I am a freakin' idiot...) after moving and listening to SF Giants on radio play-by-play since 2012. |
I have <FINALLY> realized that J. Miller is the straight man of the two men broadcast team.
Ugh!! I am so embarrassed.
|Jul-11-18|| ||technical draw: Well, Crossing Jordan ended rather abruptly. I binge watched it, six seasons 117 episodes. It was good at times so I'll recommend it and give it a B.|
|Jul-11-18|| ||technical draw: Continuing with my lesser know dictators I present Chung Park Hee president of South Korea.|
Not as famous as his comrade NorthKorea dictator Kim Jong-Un, Chung ruled South Korea starting in 1963. He led a military coup in 1960 but was arrested in 1961.
He gained power through a "self coup" by dissolving the legislature and the constitution.
Many South Koreans were becoming unhappy with his autocratic rule, his security services and the restrictions placed on personal freedoms. While Park had legitimized his administration, using the provisions laid down in the state of emergency laws dating back to the Korean War, he also failed to address the constitutional guarantees of freedom of speech and the press. Furthermore, the security service, the KCIA, retained broad powers of arrest and detention; many of Park's opponents were held without trial and frequently tortured. Eventually demonstrations against the Yushin system erupted throughout the country as Park's unpopularity began to rise.
On 26 October 1979, Park was shot to death by Kim Jae-gyu the director of the secret police.
North and South are not really shining examples of democracy.
|Jul-12-18|| ||technical draw: After binge watching Crossing Jordan I need a new series. Can anyone here vouch for "Breaking Bad"?|
|Jul-12-18|| ||saffuna: From what I have read and the four or five episodes of "BB" I've seen, it's pretty intense, especially in the final seasons. Not for casual viewing|
|Jul-12-18|| ||Stonehenge: I liked Breaking Bad. It started a bit slow but it really gets good.|
|Jul-12-18|| ||rogge: Yep, one of the best.|
|Jul-12-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: I liked 'Breaking Bad' too, but as <Stonehenge> noted, it gets a little slow now and then. But a really good script. And I loved Bryan Cranston's performance in the leading role. One of the best leads in a TV show that I can remember. It's up there with Gandolfini's Tony Soprano and Ian McShane's Al Swearengen in the western series 'Deadwood'.|
|Jul-12-18|| ||saffuna: From what I saw, maybe six or seven episodes, the lesser characters were extremely well acted and never stock characters. Always something new.|
|Jul-12-18|| ||saffuna: Also outstanding is the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul," following the sleazy lawyer Bob Odenkirk from "BB."|
|Jul-12-18|| ||playground player: <Park Chung Hee> Wow! I haven't heard that name since I was in junior high school. He came to a bad end, didn't he?|
|Jul-12-18|| ||technical draw: Ok, Breaking Bad it is.
<pp> <He came to a bad end, didn't he?>
Yes, getting shot by your own secret police director is a pretty bad ending.
|Jul-12-18|| ||technical draw: OK, I watched a couple of episodes of Breaking Bad and deep-sixed it. Not my kind of show. Slapstick humor. Non-sequiturs, and sloppy directing. More for an adolescent audience. I'll try a few movies. I'll start with Suburbicon.|
|Jul-12-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: < technical draw: Continuing with my lesser know dictators I present Chung Park Hee president of South Korea.>|
Did you hear about his brother, Kimch? He invented Korean Cole Slaw. So they named it after him: Kimch Hee
|Jul-12-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <technical draw: After binge watching Crossing Jordan I need a new series. Can anyone here vouch for "Breaking Bad"?>|
Awesome! Well-written, well-acted, and well-directed.
Plus, filmed in Albuquerque, where I once lived.

I guess we don't see eye-to-eye on it. And when I said well-directed, I should have said well-edited but I didn't
|Jul-12-18|| ||technical draw: Thats' ok. <tga> I have found my new series. House M.D. Eight seasons 177 episodes plus you get a free medical education. Just finished my first episode. It may take about 40 days to complete. I was also looking at House of Cards maybe that one will be next.|
|Jul-13-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <technical draw: Thats' ok. <tga> I have found my new series. House M.D. Eight seasons 177 episodes plus you get a free medical education.>|
Let me know when you're medical education is ready. I am looking for some discount neurosurgery...
|Jul-13-18|| ||technical draw: <tga> Neurosurgery begins at episode 60.|
<Whatever you choose, I absolutely don't recommend <world's number one: Adolph Hitler> for your forum title.>
You're right! I didn't think of that. I'll call it Germany's Chancellor.
|Jul-13-18|| ||juan31: <TD>. Siempre se agradece el buen sentido del humor " unos van llorando y otros van cantando" me hace reir esa imagen, si gana < Nako de Sonora> me parece muy bien, si acaso ganara Croacia, cosa que deseo, no sólo por su equipo lleno de buen futbol, sino por el corazón que han demostrado, me llevaría los puntos.|
|Jul-13-18|| ||technical draw: <juan31> Bueno hay que esperar al Domingo para saber quien llora y quien canta. Me parece que el partido del tercer lugar no genera mucho entusiasmo.|
|Jul-13-18|| ||falso contacto: Es como una competencia de pizzas al microondas. De asado recalentado. De pasta sin salsa. De futbol sin pelota. No se puede dar jaque mate y querer seguir jugando.|
|Jul-14-18|| ||technical draw: New forum title of little known dictators. Today we have Jozef Tiso, A Catholic priest who led Slovakia's fascist moment, Tiso was in charge of one of Nazi Germany's numerous satellite regimes for almost the entirety of World War II. |
He also either facilitated or had first-hand knowledge of the deportation of the vast majority of the country's Jews to Nazi concentration camps. He was responsible for the death of 83,000 Slovakian Jews.
After the war, he was executed in 1947 for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Bratislava.
For those asking why I post short bios and change my forum name to dictators I say it is to heighten awareness of how evil people can become and how a whole country can be destroyed by the whims of one person.
|Jul-15-18|| ||juan31: <TD> Gracias por la felicitación, <NakoSonorense> se quedo cantando, en mi caso no llore, ya sabes que el " hubiera" en estos casos, no sirve, ese auto gol y la "mano" le dieron ventaja a francia, y así es el deporte, pasa cualquier escenario.|
