| Political Talk|| A Special Prosecutor in IRS case is Obama's Dream? - Scoop on 5/22/13 at 3:55 pm|
I was thinking the other day that Obama would benifit from a special prosecutor.
It shuts down the story for a very long time, years probably. Ken Starr was appointed in August of 1994 and it was a few years before it all came to a head.
We'll get the ol' "Not going to comment on an ongoing in...

I've bought a lot of stuff from eBay over the years but only sold one thing and it worked out great.
Trying to sell something now that would get great action if it got some eyeballs. It got 7 views in the first 10 minutes and it has been buried ever since. No views since shortly after the listi...
| Political Talk|| Full disclosure from liberals......let's have it. Thunderdome - Scoop on 5/20/13 at 10:33 pm|
One scandal is manageable, especially for Obama.
Two scandals are manageable for Obama.
Three scandals are not manageable, even for Obama.
All of these are HUGE and happening at the same time.
Our President is either clueless or complicit.
He is either not in control and incompetent o...
| O-T Lounge|| Discuss the historical context of this tornado: - Scoop on 5/20/13 at 9:36 pm|
Due to forecasting and media, no tornado will ever eclipse the death toll of the Tri-State Tornado.
I don't think a tornado will ever stay on the ground as long as the TST, either. A 219 mile damage path is simply unimaginable and proves that the TST was possibly the greatest meteorological anoma...

...is so tomorrow he can easily deflect IRS questions tomorrow.
The press conference tomorrow is one of the most important of any POTUS in recent memory and he and his staff knows it.
He can now survive it by deflecting due to today regarding the IRS and deflect the AP thing using the ongoing ...

Struggling blue states are struggling due to unsustainable allegiance to unions and oppressive taxes.
Struggling red states are struggling due to the unsustainable weight of the ever growing dependent class.
Can a Dem/Lib here tell me how the blame for this is not at their doorstep and come a...

Always love seeing actors from The Wire show up on other shows.
Lost my shite when Cutty showed up, now D'Angelo is on board.

It was second on my list of anticipated movies last summer and I cooled on it after the word hit the street enough to wait and just now got around to seeing it on HBOGO.
I don't know how many movies I've ever seen that set things up so brilliantly just to have it all fall apart. Mind numbingly go...

A doctor is supposedly live tweeting from a ophthalmologist conference on compliance with Obamacare and most of the doctors bounced as it was going on.
Tweeter is a Dr. Kristin Held.

4 lane overpass over I-20. One unit is on top of the overpass on the east side of it so east bound traffic can't see him up there as they approach. He is shooting radar down at eastbound traffic as they pass under.
Entrance ramp has 4 or 5 units lined up bumper to bumper off to the side where eas...

I got so tired of all the mileage libs got from the August 6th memo because the August 6th memo didn't say shite.
The left got their mileage on the August 6th memo knowing they could mischaracterize it and enough people would not go actually read it.

Bunch of Apple stuff in the house and all I want is a charger for my iPhone and iPad to be there next to my bed at the end of the day.
My kids are always borrowing and/or carrying off my chargers.

Is it to prepare to kill us all or is it to use the pretend unlimited resources of the federal government to bypass a legislative attack on the 2nd Amendment by choking off the supply of ammunition available in retail outlets available to the public?
It's the latter.
It is the one instance in ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just watched Rock of Ages. - Scoop on 3/25/13 at 4:03 pm|
Don't understand the hate.
I enjoyed it.
The bad dialogue, bad acting, numerous cliche' plot lines and all were obviously intentional.
It's Camp and it was fun for a mindless watch.
Reading the reviews on RT, it's like tons of critics didn't even get it....

The Cyprus thing is just the start.
It's a test case. It breaks down and causes crazy measures but the reason it breaks down is true everywhere.
If they get away with it, it's on.
As far as the US goes, we are doomed no matter what. The only way to save us is to break the entire public unio...

He's like Nick Cage without the money problems.
We know why Nick Cage does crap, he has money problems due to his love of buying castles he can't afford.
Bruce has to have a shite ton of money and has no reason to get involved in crap but he does it constantly.
The Sixth Sense was in 1999. T...

I hate going there and avoid it at all costs but the wife convinced me to cause the groceries were getting low.

| Political Talk|| Tactically, Drones could never intervene in a domestic terrorist attack. - Scoop on 3/7/13 at 5:19 pm|
These are the reasons:
Armed drones would have to stay in the air around the clock above high value areas in the U.S. to even have a chance to react to a quickly developing ground threat. Besides the legal issues involved in that, they may have to all stay up there for years 24/7 before a threat ...
| Political Talk|| What is the distinction between a drone and a piloted aircraft? - Scoop on 3/5/13 at 10:26 pm|
This is what is so creepy to me.
No one would argue that American citizens are fair game for a human piloted A-10 dropping a Hellfire.
A drone is piloted by a human. The only difference is that the human is not sitting in it.
I would have been fine had F-16s taken down a plane on 9/11 in a...

Rewatching The Wire over the last couple of weeks. Just finished season 3.
IMHO, Avon and Stringer giving each other up at the same time was the best plot line of the entire series.
Which had the most legitimate?
