Don't know why you call the law dumb.
As the Baby Boomers get older, there is a lot more tolerance for legal pot (small amounts). And a majority of younger people feel this way also. Polls r...

in military drills today. The Revolutionary Guard warned that they will not back down from any power. An Iranian naval officer said that aircraft carriers are easy targets which can explode when hit. The Iranian Navy used speedboats in the attack drill.
A US Navy spokesman said the drill was the eq...

Are you kidding? That's where he got his start. He was a real mainstream comic then---and funny as hell!

and I concur with the reason he was probably not invited.
Not a one of the cast members at the reunion flaunted their political beliefs, even though most of them are most likely liberal. Obama and the Clintons were made fun of repeatedly, and so were politicians to the right. Dennis could not hav...

Of course this assumes that President Obama hasn't already put in ground troops.

[quote]I got a big ambulance bill for my son last fall.
I told them to frick off. That I wasn't going to pay and I wasn't going to turn it in to my insurance.
This kind of action raises the cost of healthcare for everyone else. It takes money away from me just like Medicaid does.

Most taxpayers (approximately 75% of my many and diverse clients) are OK with the tax penalty for not carrying health insurance. This includes many who do not have insurance and have to pay the tax. The ones without insurance usually inquire about how to get it in the market place of the Affordable ...

The Saints problem is evaluating talent when they have to draft in the 1st few rounds.
The prior comment by "tke857" is the right answer---it's all math!
Any Saints player would have been a 4 or 5 star recruit if their destination (succe...

According to the Times Picayune:
All together 32 Saints players had 2 stars or were unranked (about one half of the team). Most of those were unranked including Drew Brees, Marques Colston and various other starters. 73% of the team had ratings of 3 stars or below. There are only two 5-stars on t...
