When I was a child, I always loved the prequels more than the originals. I understand why the originals are better now, but children don't care about those small things. She would probably appreciate the continuity in the story rather than be confused over which set came first. That always confused me.
Start with the prequels.
I'd have to stay prequels as well only because at her age she will identify more in the prequels as they were more targeted at her which will lead to her enjoying the series more overall.
If you hook her early with the prequels she will become a life long fan which will lead her to the heart of story along with all the new content with the Disney show(the Cartoon Network one as well) and the new movie coming out.
Given my age I saw the prequels first which hooked me. I saw the Phantom Menace probably like 4 times in theaters and saw each one after that on their premiere nights. I skipped school for episode 3. Maybe I benefitted from them being released as I got older but it gave me enough time to mature into the originals which gave me a more deep appreciation for them.
When she's older and can mental process all the story has to offer she'll thank you for it. Plus she will be able to grow up into this new trilogy which will probably give her the same out come I did.
Actually maybe start her when this new movie when comes out.
Ok but is that not the case though? Please name the nations lining up with the man power, reasources, and willingness to invade and take away our freedom from us.
They don't try because they know they can't. Our military is the reason for that and you are being intentionally ignorant if you don't think that.
You post an article on Veterans Day written in completely bad faith that doesn't actually attempt to address an issue it's attempt is to undermine a holiday and the people it's about for political reasons. Which is why it was posted on salon and linked here by you.
I feel like none of you guys actually read the article, or if you did, none of you understood what it was actually saying (or simply projected onto it what you wanted it to say.) Nowhere does the article (or I in referencing it) suggest that the individual's decision to serve his or her country isn't a brave and sacrificial choice. Rather, it - and here I agree - argues that prevailing cultural attitudes that culminate in unassailable ideas like "the troops defend our freedom" is a trope that, while an excellent nation-building tactic and ideological glue, actually acts against democratic principles that should underscore foreign policy, because it turns eyes collectively blind from the more insidious natures of motivating factors behind wars (principally, corporate interests and the MIC.)
Reject it if you like, but for god's sake actually identify and engage the argument, not straw men. Literally no one itt has touched it.
Troops do defend our freedom. Are they actively fighting against people who wish to take it away? No. Does their presence stop the people who do wish to take it away from even trying. Absolutely.
Everyone here can agree we've gotten in wars for our own political interest that's nothing groundbreaking. But the troops aren't the cause and Veterans Day isn't the thing that should be looked at.
The author might have had a stronger argument if they directed the attention at the politicians who wish to carry out the "insidious natures of motivating factors behind wars"
Writing the piece on Veterans Day and choosing the title the author did was rather short sighted because it's only meant to attract the people already against our nations defense. Bringing it here automatically turns away half the people here because of strong ties to the military. If the authors idea was to open eyes the title was a poor choice.
Takes a year for the NFL to adjust to change. Top 10 O last year....
This year they turn it over more than any team in the NFL and are 20th in pts per drive
And they lead their division and only have one loss. Oh and made mark Sanchez relevant again. Seems like the nfl isn't adjusting to well.
There were a lot of posters on this site that wanted nothing to do with him. He's been a success and I'd venture to say a lot of y'all don't want to own up to being wrong. It's ok I understand but good thing for you, you're wrong a lot more than you're right.
