Yep. In western North Carolina, an entire town was flooded in the 20s or 30s to create the Fontana Lake and dam. You can take a ferry across the lake to where the old highway goes up a mountain.
A buddy of mine and I took the ferry and hiked 11 miles along what used to be that highway. Very ...

I agree, and I think his plan is working so far.
It is so frustrating, though, as a conservative. The GOP constantly pays lip service to the notion that it needs to appeal to a wider range of people, but when someone comes along who does just that the old guard tries to squash him.

Just went to the Aereo website to find out exactly how it works.
Here it is: it is nothing more than an electronic antenna that delivers a wireless signal to compatible devices for LOCAL programming. With Aereo, you can record programs like a DVR does, only it's on the Cloud. Doing so enables ...

If Aereo is not paying the creator of the original content for use of the content, then it is clearly copyright infringement.
If they win, then the next big question will be this: since Aereo does not have to pay, then why do cable and satellite dish companies have to pay? They could then tell ...
