| Political Talk|| Amir Taheri Frames Obama's Islam Naivete Quite Well - RedStickBR on 2/20/15 at 7:05 am|
I agree with everything Mr. Taheri has said here. It appears President Obama is embracing political correctness for the sake of political correctness, and with very little effort made to actually understand the various sides of the debate. Political correctness is an ideal Obama believes should be a...
| Political Talk|| Boston Victim: What I Learned From Losing My Leg - RedStickBR on 2/3/15 at 10:50 am|
I honestly don't know how I'd feel if I were in this woman's position. I severely doubt I'd be able to be this strong. This is an amazing read.
| Money Talk|| Anyone use the U.S. Airways Premier World MasterCard? - RedStickBR on 1/31/15 at 10:28 am|
This is easily the best sky miles deal I've ever seen. Sign up, make a purchase (even a de minimis amount, which is what differentiates it from other cards) or transfer a balance, pay the annual fee, and you get 50k miles.
For anyone who has used this card, when does the annual fee become payabl...

| Political Talk|| "Republicans Need to Move More to the Center" - RedStickBR on 1/15/15 at 11:57 am|
How many times have we heard that? But with Republicans holding the most House seats in seven decades, 60% of state governorships, and the most state legislative seats since 1928, have the tables turned? Could it possibly be that Democrats are due for a move towards the center after giving us (ideol...
| Political Talk|| Joan Walsh Criticizing Jeb's "Evolution" on Gay Marriage - RedStickBR on 1/6/15 at 6:54 pm|
Jeb's recent stance in support of gay marriage is "drastically different than his stance in" ... wait for it ... 1994!
So Obama pulls a 180 over a two year period (once it's become politically expedient) and it's a beautiful thing but Jeb evolves over 20 years and he must be lying.
She is the ...

This latest discovery of "scientists" cooking the ocean acidification books has presented quite the platform for AGW skeptics to lay the smack down on the warmists. This read continues to deliver:

Despite having launched a renewable energy program years back but then pulling the plug on it after realizing (a) large scale renewable energy is not economically viable today and (b) we would get more return on our investment making fossil fuel generation cleaner than by pouring untold billions in ...
| Political Talk|| Remember the walrus epidemic that was reported as evidence of Global Warming? - RedStickBR on 12/27/14 at 9:53 am|
As it was reported, there was a massive number of walruses found on a thin segment of land off the Alaskan coast that was widely reported by the media and scientific alarmists as an unqualified symptom of global warming. Well, as it happens, Canadian zoologist, level-headed climate scientist, and "P...
| Political Talk|| Policing in New York City - RedStickBR on 12/4/14 at 9:01 pm|
New York employs broken-window policing, a philosophy implemented by Rudy Guiliani which punishes low-level crimes (like selling untaxed cigarettes) with harsh penalties. The thought goes that being extremely strict on things like graffiti and panhandling will result in a more orderly society, which...
| Political Talk|| Someone Please Explain How Glenn Beck Does It - RedStickBR on 11/22/14 at 12:22 pm|
Dude made $90mm in 2013ish? Wasn't he a sub-par commentator back in his Fox days, and now the guy has apparently put together a media empire that is outearning even Oprah Winfrey. Despite what you think of the guy, that's impressive, but how the hell has he pulled this off? Dude must have raised som...

I attempted to bring this up in the Robin Williams thread but that thread was admittedly going in a completely different direction.
If you're for big government and restrictions on individual liberties, I can see why you'd agree with the prevailing norm that assisted suicide clinics be generally...

Anyone have any experience with the Igloo Icy Tunes series? Apart from making one yourself, are there any other companies that make these? I've done some searching and haven't found much.

| Political Talk|| How did the IRS emails disappear? - RedStickBR on 6/24/14 at 7:57 am|
I know this post title seems remarkably simple-minded, but I'm actually curious how anyone can explain this barring intentional misconduct.
To start, there are two copies of every email - one for the sender and one for the recipient. Secondly, the IRS is almost definitely backing up their data, a...
