    At the Golden Globes there was talk about Oprah Winfrey running for President in 2020. Her long time companion Steadman said if the people want her...she would definitely run.

    What do you think about this? And would you vote for Oprah for President if she did run?

    Absolutely NOT, after last nights speech going way beyond her Golden Globe. She is a great tv host and good in movies, but that's it.

    At one time I actually would have voted for her to be our President. But she has gotten to "far out" in her thinking these past few years...to New Ageism for me now.

    I do believe that a woman will be President one day though.

    No would not vote for her....mainly because I think we have had enough celebrities taking over. Look what has happened since Trump took over....way too much controversy with celebrities.

    I don't make political decisions based on race or gender. When a qualified woman turns up on the ballot, I'll vote for her if she's in the right place on issues that matter to me. However, when we elect someone because they are black, or because they are female, we're not looking at things that matter.

    I agree @Ken Anderson and that's one reason I didn't vote for Hillary ....even though she's a female.

    There's no reason to think that a woman wouldn't be able to do the job, or someone of whatever race you might want to put in there, but I wouldn't vote for someone just because of that, as I've said, but neither would I vote against them based on that sort of thing.

    Thing is, these awards ceremonies, to us, are no place to do a political or any other kind of statement........about race or anything else. Enough is enough..........do the awards and that's it.

    Yes, all of these people want change, but in reality, is that going to happen............seriously doubt it.

    Ive been watching the old Match Game shows from 1975 on Amazon prime and it's really refreshing and fun to listen to them joke around and not worry about PC.

    They make fun of eskimos, Indians, gays...lots of sexual innuendo...everybody just having fun....what a different world now.

    I have always admired Oprah. She has accomplished many impressive things. If she ran for president, she would likely win. She would have most women's vote, the black vote, the liberal men's vote and many other men's votes. She is a strong woman. Why, then, do you suppose she felt the need to wear her boobs pushed up to her collar bone at the awards? I have seen a lot of women in my life but I have never seen one with her boobs growing out of her collar bone. IMO, her words would have carried more weight if she had worn a more natural looking bra. I didn't see the awards but, from what I read, it was all about sexual harassment and women being treated equally. By trying to look so sexy, she seems to have negated that message .

    This “making fun of” is still done on The Comedy Club stage and stages like it. Comedians will make fun of any race, the GLT community and anything else they can think of. Audiences will laugh their butts off.

    Yes, that's true of comedians but even they are starting to get flack...especially the r rated ones. Think Dave Chappelle got some flack recently.

    But I was talking about rated g shows.

    Sorry, but rated g shows don’t have “sexual innuendos” in them, that I know of. Rated PG and R do. We have movies that are rated PG and R due to “sexual innuendos” and beyond in them, but they sure are good movies.
    Anyway, these comedians really don’t care about what some folks think of their comedy.

    The match game was rated G and there was a lot of it going on in the show...nothing bad but still
    there.

    Anyway my point was about PC and nor so much about sex.
