| Political Talk|| Oilfield workers: the best argument against unions? - TheHiddenFlask on 3/31/14 at 9:45 am|
Is there any other industry where it is commonplace for a guy with only a high school degree to be making above 100,000/200,00/300,000 dollars?
If this isn't the most damning evidence for the economic atrocities that unions have brought upon their membership, I don't know what is.

Looks like it's at the corner of Highland and Lee.
I'm just guessing, because I'm looking from downtown.
Anyone know what that is?
Edit: there is nothing uncovered in this thread.
It is not the fire school. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Pick 2 - Bell, Spiller, or S. Jackson - TheHiddenFlask on 11/6/13 at 6:46 pm|
For some reason ESPN is projecting Spiller to post 15 points next week. I don't know if his bust status has me biased or if they are insane. ...

I'm getting close to the end of the first review and should be making not cards by mid week. The writing portion is much more terrifying than I had planned on.

| Political Talk|| Is anyone else excited about the fiscal cliff? - TheHiddenFlask on 12/31/12 at 11:43 am|
A lot of the a-holes who love liberal policies will finally get to pay their fair share instead of passing it on to my generation.
It's going to tag me pretty hard, but it will be worth it to make people feel the pain that they deserve. ...

I got 2 hand made wooden rockers from my parents and I know I need to stain them. However, I don't know much about it and could use some advice.
I'm thinking I want to do a light colored stain first and then I could go darker on later coats if I wanted to.
Is 2 coats of stain the optimal amo...
| Political Talk|| Why do liberal states want large federal government? - TheHiddenFlask on 12/14/12 at 1:52 pm|
I understand that they want a large government, but why wouldn't they want to remove power from the federal government so that they can be free to create their liberal utopia within their state?
As a conservative, I have no problem with any state making their laws and policy as liberal as they wa...

He got canned after going 4-21 in 2 years and he pulls the race card.
ESPN takes this and presents it as a fact, backing it up with the fact that only Tyrone Willingham got a second chance at a head coaching gig (which he failed miserably at).
Remind me again what Cutcliffe was fired for? Wh...

However, even in my beariest dreams, never would I have imagined the fall from grace that GRPN has experienced. I mean, sweet mother of Zeus, that thing has gone ...
| Political Talk|| Rant on the idea and underpinnings of secession - TheHiddenFlask on 11/13/12 at 2:48 pm|
First off, the idea of secession is silly and utopian.
Now that we have that out of the way:
The reason people want to secede, in my opinion, is similar to the reason for the revolutionary war, except completely upside down.
tax paying Americans have carried a heavier and heavier burden o...

Very convenient for the president.
Especially when only 114k jobs were added. I might be buying into the BLS being rigged.
This makes unemployment .1% lower than when he took office.
ETA: U6 remained unchanged. ...
