re: mid 1990s Gibson les paul studio or a new Edwards les paul custom? - Ace Midnight
[quote]On that note, if you get the Edwards, don't write off the factory Duncans just yet. I surely wouldn't pull them in favor of EMGs.[/quote] I agree with this - unless you're going for a specific sound which requires specific pup choices, I would like the Duncans for LP studio over just about...

re: Gun control lobby going after muzzleloaders now? - Ace Midnight
[quote]McDonald v. Chicago incorporated the 2nd Amendment against the states via the 14th Amendment. 7 years ago. [/quote] It doesn't appear to have any effect on state and local laws. Hell, Heller has barely budged D.C. gun laws....

re: How good was Charles Alexander? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Tell me how good he was[/quote] He was clearly the best offensive player in the conference for the late 1970s - ahead of guys like Wes Chandler (there was no real standout QB) and, if you count OL, Dwight Stephenson. A dominant back on a run first team. The last truly great player of t...

re: Gun control lobby going after muzzleloaders now? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Does the 1st Amendment only apply to states rights?[/quote] Technically, it only applied to Congressional action, but the XIVth Amendment has been interpreted to apply to all state action, extending to this. Gun rights folks should continue to pursue this line with 2nd Amendment rights,...

re: Give me your plan to lower federal spending by 100 billion/year - Ace Midnight
[quote]what is on the chopping block?[/quote] I would freeze spending day 1. By end of the next quarter, all spending, item by item would go down 2/3 of a percent. The next quarter, 2/3 of a percent, etc, until we are down roughly 2.5 percent from the starting point. Should take the politics...

re: And down goes Senator Richard Blumenthal! - Ace Midnight
If I preface things by saying I'm a strong supporter of Isreal, absolutely believe the Holocaust happened (and that European Jewry was almost destroyed in the process), that I have great affection for Jewish entertainers, and think that Jews have been scapegoated in the West for over a millennium, c...

re: Denis Villeneuve working on new Dune movie - Ace Midnight
[quote] Lynch's bastardization of the story [/quote] I just disagree. Lynch is one of a handful of verifiable geniuses in the art. He was forced to make a huge number of well-documented compromises, and others were done over his strong objections. When he does his own work, on his own terms, t...

re: OT Lawyer Advice:Business Contract - Ace Midnight
Full disclosure - it is inappropriate for me to offer you specific legal advice under these facts, because I don't and am not going to represent you. However, that prohibition doesn't block me from telling you this - you need competent legal counsel to advise you on these contract details - and y...

re: Why do Democrats dislike the middle class? - Ace Midnight
They cling to their guns and religion, bristle at having their money be taken/wasted and called racist, bigot, homophobes, Islamophobes, Nazi, for their trouble. Also, they don't vote right. All of that....

re: Why do people tie up huge chunks of income in expensive vehicles? - Ace Midnight
[quote]I learned this lesson when we had a 100k car sitting in the driveway unused next to a new 4runner not being used. We both were driving our weekend cars 90% of the time. [/quote] So you had 4 fricking cars for 2 drivers? Or am I missing something?...

re: Lil' Kim Causes Parasitic Worm Epidemic - Ace Midnight

re: Trump ends ban on importing heads of hunted endangered elephants - Ace Midnight
[quote]Why don't they have guided hunts to hunt the poachers? Win-Win? [/quote] Imagine the optics of rich white folks hunting and killing brown poachers? But, that image is both ludicrous and implausible. Poachers would shoot back and are often as well-armed as insurgent groups. So, the ...

re: Denis Villeneuve working on new Dune movie - Ace Midnight
[quote]i have never read Dune, but i assume there is enough material in the first book to create a trilogy[/quote] There's enough Frank-written material (6 novels) to do a 4 or 5 season cable series. I think the original Dune story works better as a 2-part epic (~6 hours), but I don't think to...

re: Fox News Going Full Snowflake -- Bans Gene Simmons From Network - Ace Midnight
Gene Simmons is literally the Donald Trump of Rock and Roll. Make Cable News Great Again. (Simmons and OReilly could partner up for a new Conservative network not beholden to the new leftist overlords at liberal FNC. Hannity could be lured. Tucker, too, in all likelihood.) ...
