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?

question... about political motivations and humanitarian concerns.
Why does some admin here have 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:...

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.

Roll him out, run a few read options, a few speed options, a few QB draws... keep the defense guessing who's actually going to keep the ball. And employ a few screens instead of relying upon a good pocket in the face of a rush.
