| Political Talk|| If Obama knew the IRS was targeting Specific Groups - EthanL on 5/17/13 at 4:51 pm|
And lies under oath about it, or by deposition, whatever, he should be Impeached. Case closed.
Benghazi and the AP thing are non-stories, save for the fact we need to find the people responsible for the attack.
The IRS thing is huge, and could bring him down....
| Political Talk|| Are the people that call the President names... - EthanL on 4/27/13 at 11:46 am|
...want him gone, go after his wife etc...
Are some of you the same people that hate/hated Les Miles? Just curious.
And get out of the thread non-LSU fans? Thanks for your obedience....
| Political Talk|| Gas Prices. Lets just agree it is politically neutral - EthanL on 4/24/13 at 4:40 pm|
I've heard people say Obama wants gas prices to go up.
I've heard people say Obama wants gas prices to go down.
Rather than start a new thread blaming the President, Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, or terrorists, lets just agree to give everyone the benefit of the doubt (save for the ter...
| Movie/TV Board|| So, the planet Krypton lives? SPOILER ALERT - EthanL on 4/24/13 at 4:22 pm|
Dunno if this was discussed yet.
Noticed at the end of the new trailer, Ka-lel makes a reference to his 'world', as if it still exists.
Thoughts? Is Supes 'more super' because he had 30 years + on earth, as opposed to the invading Kryptonians?...
| Political Talk|| What offends you more about Politicians---their Hypocrisy or their lies - EthanL on 4/13/13 at 4:44 pm|
Think about that for awhile. Think about specific examples. Then tell me what you think. The two are not as closely related as we sometimes make them out to be....
| Political Talk|| Libs reallly, really, do want to take your Guns - EthanL on 4/8/13 at 7:08 am|
I think that makes my thread more credible[link=(http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070418101423AACgAVs)]Gun-takeaway time[/link] than the last one.
| Movie/TV Board|| 'Man of Steel' will redefine Superman's ability to fly - EthanL on 4/6/13 at 3:18 pm|
I don't know if any of you noticed, but this seems to be one of the more interesting developments of the movie.
It appears to me that Superman has an endless array of powers that he just has to learn how to use, and it is all tied into his super-strength. From the previews, it looks like he 'lear...
| Political Talk|| Question about Dr. Ben Carson - EthanL on 4/2/13 at 10:35 pm|
He seems to be a very intelligent, knowledgeable, and sincere person. A far cry from [i]most[/i] in Washington (name a GOPer that closely resembles his line of thought).
My question is this: Considering the political climate, the cynicism that is politics, the toxic nature of Washington, and the ...
| Political Talk|| Why is the Elephant the symbol of the Republican Party? - EthanL on 3/22/13 at 3:07 pm|
One is forced to take the lead, and sticks his nose up in the air, while the others fall in line, stick their nose up the rear of the one in front of them, and blindly follow the leader.
But...seriously...why is it their symbol?...
| Political Talk|| Why is the donkey the symbol of the Democratic Party? - EthanL on 3/22/13 at 2:53 pm|
Like the Donkey, if they do not want to do something, they lay down and do nothing, or they start kicking anything nearby, including other dumb-arse Democrats.
But seriously, why is it a Donkey?...
| Political Talk|| GOP/Conservative birth pangs need to be real for any real 'change' in America - EthanL on 3/14/13 at 6:31 pm|
I think more than anything, this is what is hurting the GOP.
Ok. Lets agree on something: Liberals/Democrats are shrewd politicians. They have been out-politicking the GOP for quite sometime.
And it's true we don't know what a Romney White House would have looked like, or how diverse it would...
| Political Talk|| Obama to select the next Pope - EthanL on 3/2/13 at 9:14 am|
And it will be Dolan from the United States.
I think everyone including this country has dirt on the Vatican.
This will be in an effort to ease gay rights views, contraception laws, and for Catholics to become more liberal.
My conspiracy thread. Book it...
| Political Talk|| The reasons why 'Gay rights', is an uphill political battle - EthanL on 2/26/13 at 2:39 am|
Sort of an answer to a thread that got whacked due to lack of political overtones:
I think the gay/homosexual lifestyle is a lifestyle of choice.
I think it's addictive, confusing for them, and especially now in a world that says its 'okay', hard to break from.
I think people have tendenci...
| Political Talk|| Universal (inalienable) rights, or Necessary Evils? - EthanL on 2/23/13 at 3:24 pm|
Most Americans would say we have 'come a long way' in, say, the past century and a half, and I guess that's true.
But it seems to me, and I consider myself still a young man at 37, there has been a slow descent into chaos the past 20.
Consider these issues that have been discussed [i]ad[/i] [i...
| Political Talk|| Well, co-pays for us here in Bama are down - EthanL on 2/14/13 at 2:51 pm|
My copay for a Dr.'s office visit dropped from $30 to $20 bucks.
So I guess I personally save about 10 bucks a year in copays.
| Political Talk|| Mark Fuhrman the next FOX analyst to be canned? - EthanL on 2/12/13 at 5:37 pm|
They had this expert on like last week Friday. He was mentioned in Dorner's manifesto etc.
Fuhrman basically said that the authorities in Cali didn't know what they were doing. He said this man was very dangerous, highly skilled, and that there was a 0% chance he was in the state.
He said a b...
| Political Talk|| Well, a little 'ray of hope' for Obamacare? - EthanL on 2/6/13 at 9:18 pm|
Today my place of employment (medical center) went into the preliminary stages of the Medicare adjustments.
Anyone on Medicare is limited to 14 ER visits per year.
Now, just to put this in perspective, I [i]personally[/i] have seen the same patient make at least 4 visits to the ER in a month. ...
| Political Talk|| My weekly 'Principles trump Rights any day' thread - EthanL on 2/2/13 at 9:13 am|
I just got thru watching the remake of Total Recall, which I knew was wasted time. I wasn't surprised to see good guys blowing away bad guys, with one or two good guys going down every now and then.
What surprised me was how random people, whether it was in a workplace, shopping center, or street...
| Political Talk|| Who was the biggest 'Deficit Hawk?' - EthanL on 1/26/13 at 12:58 pm|
George H.W Bush
George W. Bush
Barrack H. Obama
You can base your answers on fact or opinion. Opinions are usually more entertaining.
I am personally going straight on opinion and gonna say Ronald Reagan.
(I purposely left out Clinton and Carter for [u]obvious[/u] reasons....
| Political Talk|| Nice! SS punking Joe Biden - EthanL on 1/21/13 at 3:24 pm|

| Political Talk|| The sobering truth about 'Gun Rights'...ultimately - EthanL on 1/19/13 at 7:46 am|
Let me explain my position on guns: I don't have any, I guess I am taking chances with my life and my family's. I think I've reduced my chances of getting shot as a young black man by the company I choose, and the area in which I live. But who knows. I could become another statistic involving a rand...
| Political Talk|| Has your Ideology ever gone too far? - EthanL on 1/18/13 at 3:16 pm|
I am posing this question to conservatives, in hopes of no deflection, staying on subject, and in an even more desperate attempt to keep Barack Obama and liberals out this response.
Lets set the table. Liberals, I think, have gone too far in these areas:
-Abortion. I think it's categorically wr...
| Political Talk|| Easily the Most Powerful President ever - EthanL on 1/14/13 at 11:46 am|
Whether you like him or not. You gt the sense what he is saying is going to happen.
Or the Republicans just suck that bad...?
Nobody has the balls to stand up to Obama. Absolutely nobody....

| SEC Rant|| Congratulations Bama! - EthanL on 1/10/13 at 6:51 pm|
Meh. I'm finally over it. I think about 'what could've been', and consider Coach Miles's place in CFB history with an OK Lite vote here and a play there, and I know the difference is razor thin between the two.
I'll get this off my chest and I'm done: Every SEC Champion this past decade got their...
| Tiger Rant|| I believe LSU's program has been hit with the 'Perfect Storm' of non-playmakers - EthanL on 1/7/13 at 10:01 pm|
I am looking at Bama's RB's. There QB. Their WR. Hell, most teams have at least 3 main playmakers on offense.
We don't have any.
Damn. I'm drunk and sad. Bama losing tonight was supposed to be my silver lining to this CFB season.
Ignore me :(...

177 suicides to 176 actual combat fatalities.
War is Hell.

Private Sector alone added 215,000 jobs. Couple that with all the Tax incentives retained by the Fiscal Cliff deal, and the 2013 may be the big rebound we need. Full UE number due out tomorrow.
