Gov. Raimondo is expected to announce new restrictions for high schools (announced by WPRI and WJAR last night) as well as discuss Thanksgiving.
Self-promotion: Yesterday I started graphing data in a few other threads. It's really ugly right now and far from finished (I'll make a separate post on this sub when it's done) but I did start a GitHub site to view the graphs
#Gov. Gina Raimondo ##Intro
#New Restrictions ##Intro - Rationale
##Path from now to end of the year Current restrictions will be extended until the Sunday after Thanksgiving with two exceptions, effective immediately:
I may not agree with her viewpoints, but to be fair I also don't care what any actor thinks about world events. Gina is A) Badass B) Making Cara Dune one of my favorite new Star Wars characters C) now an established part of SW Canon, and D) a strong woman promoting positivity for a body type not commonly seen in media.
I see no benefit to having her removed just because the woke mob doesn't like some of her politics. She wasn't cast for her politics. That's not how entertainment works.
Since there are "petitions" and "demands" to have her removed, and I keep seeing news stories popping up with "Mandalorian fans demand Disney fire Gina Carano" in some form as the title, I'm wondering anyone has seen a good way to let Disney know that these obnoxious Twitter babies don't speak for all of us. I believe the true fandom cares more about getting quality content than having actors who align with their political beliefs.
Edit: this post just got me added to something called r/Controversialclub, and was apparently for, a given hour, the most controversial post on all of Reddit. REALLY GUYS? That many of you hate Gina Carano or that someone wouldn't want her to get fired for non-job related reasons?
I’m sure this has been in effect for about a month or so now, but today’s show confirmed it for me. As Ace goes into his T-giving story of his wife in kids in FL and he at Dr. Drew’s, a typical response from one of them would have been, “wait, what? why if you were just in FL didn’t you stay and spend the holiday together?“. But oh no, Ace just kept plowing through the story as of course this all seems “perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.” Then Adam a few minutes later says he calls Natalia who is now back in L.A. but not at home and out with her friends and she doesn‘t want to talk to him, again neither Bald nor Gina ask any follow up questions along the lines of “wait so now Natalia’s back from FL but it seemed like you were surprised about this?“.
This is has got to be Maxipada having to tell them on Adam’s behalf (because as everyone knows he’s not a fan of confrontation) basically to not ask ANY questions about Adam’s home life. And obviously this makes sense because most likely Geragos has advised Adam anything said on the podcast could be evidence in a court setting, either way it just seems like this “nothing to see here folks” stance might be drawing more attention to it, a la Lance Bass.
While im a registered lefty, I like to describe myself as a centrist. Regardless i think the petitions to fire the actress from the Mandalorian is garbage and is one of the dumber things about cancel-culture. Gina Carano is a fine actress who takes on her role flawlessly. She's an ex-rebel who is not a 'joiner' and her real-life personality is also reflecting that. yea she said a lot of crazy stuff about the election, CoVid and the LBGT pronoun usage, but she is NOT running for political office on these platforms, she is merely an entertainer. Unlike Roseanne, there are no political symbolisms are stances that she takes within episodes or her lines of dialogue and she doesn't go out of her way to make statements on the show. There were 70M people who voted for the orange cheeto this past election, and you're not going to discriminate against all of them for not living by the same beliefs or lifestyle that you do, so why would you ban from from being on television? Firing her in itself would cripple the gravy train that the mandalorian is riding on and would show that disney cares more about being PC than of the quality of its content.
TL; DR: the chick from mandalorian should not be fired from a great show just because her views are trash.
Posting this a bit later than I wanted to but I made it just in time for the start!

##Data "No good news"
"Very concerning, we are far past our spring peak"
"We shouldn't panic, we should take action" - changing the trend is "within our control"
We are prepared, asking RI residents to take action and save lives.
Thank you to the people of RI - Thanksgiving was difficult, businesses are struggling.
Early data suggests that people followed the rules over Thanksgiving (enforcement unit did not need to shut down large gatherings)
At this point - she is unsure if she will lift the pause after two weeks. Would like to "slowly dial the economy back up" after next weekend
How in the actual fuck did she get on this show? Friends with a producer? She has nothing housewives come to the table with.
They say the minority is always the loudest.
I keep seeing headlines like "Mandalorian fans call for Gina Carano to be fired over anti-mask comments"
Does the general star wars fan base actually give a shit what she says? I know I don't, I'm tired of cancel culture over one's own opinions.
Perhaps I am part of the problem?
I've been a housewives fan since the franchise started. It takes alot for me dislike a housewife, but Gina.. There's just that something about how she carries on when she's confronting someone, I find her to be particularly vicious and very full of herself in recent episodes. Don't get me started on Mrs Leventhal, not even gonna go there, but I know my opinion on Gina is widely unpopular. Why has she had this intense dislike of Braunwyn from the get go? Still trying to figure that out. Anyways, I just wanted to hear others opinions on the current season of RHOC and which cast member makes your eye twitch, feel free to include housewives from other cities 😬😅
My SO just told me this....and he’s pretty high up there with Q stuff
Regardless, anyone heard anything about this?? and a medium black out for a death the CIA director!?!?
yeah that sounds a little too conspiratorial even for them
