One thing we should be grateful for is that apparently Al Qaeda wasted their best and brightest on 9/11/01, because ever since then they've tried to attack us with incompetent nincompoops - the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber, the Time Square bomber (who couldn't make gasoline explode), etc. This ...

Goodell must be really desperate because it appears that the strategy that he's going to use to save his job is to accuse Ray Rice of lying when he met with him. Surely Goodell must know that not only does he have to discredit Rice, but he must also discredit everybody else who was in that room who ...
| Political Talk|| Germany Bans ISIS Propaganda And Symbols In Order To Stop Recruitment - trackfan on 9/12/14 at 10:01 am|
Of course Germany has no 1st Amendment as we know it, so it can get away with passing hate speech laws. Many U.S. extremist organizations would be banned in Germany, and Holocaust denial is a felony that will land you in prison. Personally, I think these type of laws are unnecessary since we already...

| Political Talk|| Analysts Say We Will Have To Coordinate With Assad To Go After ISIS - trackfan on 9/4/14 at 10:45 am|
It seems that one of the reasons that Obama is so reluctant to go after ISIS is because it doesn't wnat to help Assad, but ultumately he will have to pick his poison.

| Political Talk|| Ron Paul Isn't Helping His Son - trackfan on 8/30/14 at 6:19 pm|
I understand the point he's trying to get across, but unfortunately, Rand's enemies will see to it that he's forced to weigh in on his Dad's comments, and you can't afford to do too much nuance when you're running for President.

As the saying goes, you never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel. Well, Dan Page just came out on the losing end of a fight with CNN's Don Lemon.
