Hulu Vs Amazon Prime Video: Which Netflix Alternative Is Right For You?

For most people who get their television through streaming services like Netflix, there are alternatives to the streaming giant. Hulu and Amazon Prime rank among the alternative services. 

Hulu has an extensive library of TV shows to include originals, as well as an extensive library of movies. The site's library is ever-growing. 


Amazon Prime - this streaming service has a large volume of movies (not as many as Hulu and Netflix) and original television & movie shows. I have found a better selection with Amazon Prime, and the phone app is better than Hulu.

Hulu has an extensive library of TV shows to include originals, as well as an extensive library of movies. The site's library is ever-growing. I used Hulu for a few years; it wasn't bad. However, I disliked the disappearing ID & MTV shows. The streaming service includes Andriod & iPhone apps. Hulu Plus costs $7.99 per month with commercials. Or, $11.99 per month without commercials. 

Amazon Prime

This Service costs $13.00 a month. So if you want a modest collection of television shows and movies, this service is not bad. Granted Netflix and Hulu have a more significant library, this service is an excellent choice if you're looking for television and movies. It's not quite Netflix, but better than Hulu in my opinion.

By Embracing Bigotry, The Religious Right Is Losing Members

A lot of people have walked away from the right-leaning evangelical church, which has increasingly become a haven for the Republican party. Not lost is the toxicity of rampant racism and hatred on the part of Donald Trump. Wealthy church leaders love Donald Trump. His white nationalist rhetoric and showman style of politics is exciting to them. Moreover, Trump acts as a "strong man," but not because he's smart to the contrary, Trump has low self-esteem. Any church leader who speaks against Trump is labeled a hater of God. No, seriously; they believe this stuff. Now, we must distinguish between white evangelical and non-white evangelical Christian, because there is a difference among demographic supporters. Nearly 80% of white evangelical Christians support Donald Trump while a merely 20% of non-white evangelicals support Trump.

#BorderLineShooting

Yesterday morning at  Borderline Bar & Grill, Ian David Long, a Marine Core veteran, opened fire on the crowded country music nightclub. Long, a 28-year-old man, had previous minor run-ins with authorities, including battery, traffic stops & a domestic disturbance in April, in which authorities sent mental health workers, who subsequently cleared him. He was not involuntarily removed from his home as mental health workers didn't believe he met the requirements.

Long, who was believed to suffer from PTSD like symptoms, came to the club armed with a Glock 45. In the State of California, clips must be ten rounds, according to the Sherrif, the gunman had an extended clip; as of yet, police don't know how many shots the gunman fired. As of now, 13 people died, including the gunman.

CNN: According to the Sherriff: "We've had several contacts with Mr. Long over the years, minor events, a traffic collision. He was a victim of a battery at a local bar in 2015. In April of this year, deputies were called to his house for a subject disturbing. They went to the house, they talked to him. He was somewhat irate. Acting a little irrationally. They called out our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him and cleared him. Didn't feel he was qualified to be taken under 5150. And he was left at that scene last April," the sheriff said. 


During the shooting Sherrif's Deputy Sgt. Ron Helus died entering the club to confront the gunman. Helus died of gunshot wounds at a hospital early this morning.

Republicans Revise Their History Of Voting Against Pre-existing Conditions

As we get closer to the mid-term elections next week, Republicans revise their opposition to Obamacare's most popular feature: its coverage of preexisting conditions, which impacts half of Americans.

In fact, Republicans have voted over fifty times to repeal Obamacare, which, again, covers preexisting conditions. To make matters worse, the Republican proposed plan the GOP attempted to pass last year did not cover preexisting conditions.
