[quote]GOP Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, the Republican chair of the House Armed Services Committee, says he’s satisfied with how the US military – and ergo the Obama administration – responded to the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, including the US amba...

[quote]Back in late February and early March, 72 percent of Republicans said that Obamacare would make their lives and their family's lives worse in the long run. But just a month later, that figure fell to 51 percent. The percentage who said that the law wouldn't make much difference leapt from 23 ...

| Movie/TV Board|| "Call the Midwife" is superior to "Downton Abbey" in almost every way - Rex on 4/10/14 at 6:02 pm|
and I really like Downton Abbey.
I have just finished the two seasons of CTM available on Netflix and every single episode was both very touching and uplifting, owing in no small part to their basis in the real life memoirs of its principal character. Downton Abbey, in contrast, is a stylized...
| Help Board|| Why was my thread about the drowning man anchored? It's a LEGITIMATE political - Rex on 2/13/14 at 11:37 am|
question. It's about political motivations versus humanitarian concerns, and just how far we should go philosophically.
Which admin there has a hardon against anything I post?

Is there really a distinction where David Lane is concerned? What's more unAmerican, truly, than to wish to take up arms against our Republic in an attempt to establish a Christian theocracy? Why does Rand Paul employ that crackpot would-be traitor except that Paul is also a Dominionist?

| Movie/TV Board|| Which TV series had the greatest house value/house income ratio? - Rex on 2/1/14 at 7:47 am|
I see scenes inside houses on TV series the likes of which I couldn't comfortably afford, when I KNOW I've made more money than what could be earned by the breadwinner character.
Can't think of examples right now, though. :lol:...

And maybe not by her own choosing... there's a good chance she might have been sabotaged by her own Republican Congressman... who is supposed to be looking out for her constituents.
It's one thing to oppose Obamacare... it's quite another to deliberately hurt your own voters by keeping them ign...

to the point now that even a personal review of french fries from Five Guys gets anchored.

| Movie/TV Board|| Does Hulu Plus give you frequent "Playback Error"s ? - Rex on 1/30/14 at 5:56 pm|
I'm about to cancel this shitty service. I'd say that the stream bombs out for about half the programs I watch. I would suspect my router but it happens at my other house, too, and I don't have the same problem with Netflix.
| Food and Drink Board|| I went to Five Guys and ate ALL the fries they gave me. - Rex on 1/30/14 at 5:16 pm|
In fact, I went there just for the fries. I wouldn't go to Raising Cane for their fries. Or to McDonald's or Burger King, either.
Cool story, I know.

Our President (and I say that with much regret) is preparing for the massive body count that will accompany the inevitable Great American Revolt against his dictatorship. At least he will have the decency to bury people separately in their own coffins instead of in Hitler-type mass graves. Must b...

1- Retractable dog leashes. There's nothing like complicating a leisurely walk with your dog with a bulky, noisy, often glitchy mechanical device when it's easier just to roll the leash around your hand.
