By the conference semifinals, the level of play is insane.
I am a Boston Celtics fan and the years from 2008-2012 were so much fun. Not so much anymore, but when you have a team that is competitive and battling it out, there is really nothing better than the NBA playoffs for emotion and adrenali...

So, I have never been able to figure out what is to be done about white privilege? Stop being white?
What is the solution?
I have seen people say that if you try and help others and fight against racism, it is because of white privilege. So, no matter what you do, white privilege.

Bush put things into motion, to be sure. But, this administration has taken it much farther than Bush ever did because there is more technology now.

They are a part of the old Democratic Party - the one that actually created jobs and cared about middle class Americans. This iteration of it is controlled by disparate special interest groups who pull the party one way and another and there is no coherent vision for the betterment of America.

Yeah, I am not against localizing the trashy aspects there and then letting the tourists spend their time there. That is what they want, so that keeps it localized. But, that is not New Orleans to me. ...

It is there for the tourists. I get it. But, I do not know anyone from New Orleans who has any emotion other than disdain for the place. It doesn't even feel like New Orleans to me. It just feels like garbage.

Those costs get factored in and passed on or that amount gets added to monthly bills.

Saw it today. It was outstanding. Probably the best superhero movie I have seen - right along with Batman Begins and TDK.
Better than The Avengers, which was REALLY good.
Captain America: Winter Soldier might be my favorite.
