| Political Talk|| Poli Board Giving Thanks Thread - Bard on 11/26/14 at 1:59 pm|
I'm thankful for all my friends and family and especially for the roofies that didn't wear off of my wife before the wedding ceremony was over.
I'm thankful Mary Landrieu can now stop trying so hard to convince people she's still living in Louisiana (that's got to be a tough sell).
| Political Talk|| Immigration and What's Next for the Left - Bard on 11/21/14 at 7:45 am|
One of the main arguments the Left uses to push Immigration reform (ie: amnesty) is that the immigrants from South and Central America will do jobs Americans won't do (pick crops, wash dishes, etc) at wages Americans will not work for.
On another front the Left has done everything they can to cre...

The attack in Ottawa should be a giant sign to people that radical Islam is here. We're lucky that they are neither trained nor organized, but as the population of Islam itself grows here in the West, so also does the population of those Muslims that are or will become radicalized.

Currently the South River Road shrinkage (heh!) project is well under way.

| Movie/TV Board|| Falling Skies - The Season Finale Rant (spoilers) - Bard on 9/4/14 at 12:09 pm|
The series isn't bad, hell sometimes it's pretty damned good, but there are so many moments where they go formulaic while still trying to take itself seriously and be "edgy" and "unpredictable" that I feel like I am watching a schizophrenic. The season finale exemplified this.

Over the years I have been in IT I have yet to cease to be amazed (and a bit chagrined) at how rarely "IT professionals" will back up a customer's data.

Last night as I watched the protests, I was impressed by the line of community leaders moving between the crowd and the cops. I heartened to see the group stop one guy cold as he tried to charge the line to get to the cops, and they talked the guy down.
What really caught my attention was the gu...
