There are at least 10 films that did better at the box office that didn’t even receive a nomination. The fact that the Academy even nominated them was a win considering their political leanings.

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember that your boss, Glenn himself has ADD which went undiagnosed until he was an adult. Now maybe he has moved past that diagnosis, but I do remember clearly that he talked about it several years ago and how he’s been dealing with it.

Schnaps was for a long time the drink of choice in Europe It was essentially Vodka that had fruit sitting in it for several months. It was very strong. Modern schnapps, (notice the difference in spelling,) often has sugar added to sweeten it, although there has been a recent change toward less sweet varieties like schnaps of old.

Looking closely at the images, I see first that it is not a “permanent structure.” By sitting on the ground, rather than having a foundation, the students avoided the requirements of most building permits. It is still essentially a shed for legal purposes. This allows them to skirt certain building requirements, like indoor plumbing and insulation. Of course it is dangerous to have that stove on a wooden surface like that, but hey, it’s a great example of simple living. They could probably scrounge some fireproofing materials too making the building safer for next to nothing. I love it!

Out of those 4 Rand IS the right guy. In my opinion out of all the likely candidates left, right, and center regardless of party, Rand Paul is the guy I feel is best for the country.
I don't know if Rand Paul is able to win the election this next time around. I think he would be a perfect vice-presidential pick for someone like Bush or Romney. He would help give them a more populist and conservative appeal. Then he could run after their term(s) are up. Just my thoughts.

I remember standing in line at Rita’s Italian Ice this past year for their Free Ice Day. Their was a young lady in her teens standing in front of me wear black leggings without underwear. Now you may ask how I know she wasn’t wearing underwear, but the leggings were designed to be worn under other clothing and so were thin enough on a bright spring day that I could see through them as they stretched over her behind. I turned away and asked my fiance to say something to her, as I was concerned that I might be seen as a pervert for even noticing, but she refused saying that the only thing it would do is cause a scene. I kept my mouth shut then, but I relate the story to friends and family so as to raise awareness.

While I agree that the Obama Presidency has been terrible, I’m not certain that McCain would have been all that much better.
Just switch it so that Palin was set to be president and mclame dies of some natural causes. Couldn't be a heart attack. That would require him to have a heart.
Not only such a win would have been great for the country, the heads of so many libs/oppressives/socialists/commies would have exploded or spun at 500,000 RPM until they flew off.
Too bad I'm not a Time Lord.
McCain is a bad candidate for anything and yet he wants to run again in AZ. I sure you in AZ do not re-elect him - check his donors at once so no votes are purchased!
McCain is a nobody, well past his sell date, and another Demo in Repub disguise, a RINO of the worst sort. So no way would this creature be better in any position as he keeps proving!

He’s not the only one to make sense in Washington (Rand Paul also comes to mind,) but he’s clearly one of the better candidates. The Republican Party needs a candidate with a more constitutional outlook than anybody in recent memory. That’s the only real chance we have to turn the tide.
Rand would support odumbo's immigration plans which means to me, he is a long way from being conservative.

It’s one thing to clear up blemishes. You don’t want the pimple that expressed itself the morning of the photo to be what people see your whole life especially as it’s just temporary, but this went as far a changing the shape of her face and softening her smile lines. They essentially changed the way she looks.

The US government has no place banning any religion, nor should it have any place supporting any religion at the expense of others. In this nation, we are supposed to let anyone worship in any way that does not prohibit others from doing the same or cause physical harm to anyone. So we cannot ban Islam but we CAN and should prevent them from forcing their faith upon others. I would say the same about any faith, whether Christian, Hindu, Ancient Alien theorists or even those who have no faith.
“Congress shall make no law establishing religion”. For over 1000 years muslim slaver fleets raided the coasts of Europe capturing Europeans for slaves by the thousands at the time. Slavery is still kosher in muslim societies. Eastern European governments estimate 300,000+ eastern European girls have been forced into slavery in the Middle East. Putin actually threatened to invade Saudi Arabia & other Gulf states, in his first term if those hot blooded muslims did not stop kidnapping Russian & eastern European females. Some religions will claim human sacrifice & cannibalism as tenants of their “religion”. Just like we can ban human sacrifice, cannibalism, and slavery, we can ban a system of government that subverts ours through Jihad.. Islam is a system of government. “Congress shall make no law establishing religion.” It will be to late when they are crucifying infidels on the Capital Mall..Have you been to Istanbul or Rotherham lately? It is what it is, I didn’t write the Koran.
An illiterate caravan robber, murderer, enslaver, child molester did. Sorry, I can’t dignify islam by calling it a religion. It sounds more like a mental illness to me. Call the exorcists. And no, I am not J-wish, but, some of my best friends are and never once have they threatened to behead me if I didn’t convert. They get a lot of points for that. "Ye shall know them by their fruits."
“…we are supposed to let anyone worship in any way that does not prohibit others from doing the same or cause physical harm to anyone.”
They’re prohibiting others from doing the same by allowing their imams to teach and encourage the murder of anyone who isn’t muslim. Unhindered, they will run amok even more than they have already. The muslim religion, I we can call it that, needs to be seriously curtailed. This means monitoring mosques and having treason-spewing imams thrown out of the country.
No slavery isn't kosher for the Muslims remember they hate anything jewish. But slavery is halal for the Muslims.

I hear people talk about how the US is disconnected from the world. This shows a profound lack of respect on the part of this administration for the rest of the world but it also go far as to explain why so many people around the world view the US as an enemy rather than an ally. Especially amongst the citizenry of our supposed allies.
And the obamination and his regime are disconnected with the American people. 2014 elections may have provided a clue. Therefore, the lying racist thug obamination and his regime are on an island alone. In the U.S. and the world.

Reasons are not excuses. The fact that someone believed they had cause to commit these atrocities does not make what they did any less abhorrent. Their reasoning is inexcusable.
Senator Rick Santorum went on the Sean Hannity program in the Summer of his last year in office and told this story. He mentioned that he saw the evidence that these weapons had been found in committee and was baffled as to why the Bush administration would not release it to the public. Not long after, he lost the election. Some say the administration sabotaged the election for him, but by then Bush was so unpopular in Pennsylvania and Santorum was such a strong supporter of him that he was fighting an uphill battle.
Imagine that. A president more concerned about the security of the best country the world has ever seen than his own political interests. Ah, the good ol' days.

Beckel may be a nut, but he’s right about the Vikings and Columbus. There is also good evidence that Polynesian and Chinese traders made the journey for hundreds if not thousands of years prior. Recent evidence even suggests Marco Polo may have made the journey while on his travels to China, although the evidence has not yet been determined as conclusive.

As a suicide survivor, I can tell you that barely a day goes by that I don’t regret making that choice. Was I thinking straight? Hell no. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t consciously decide to take those pills and wash them down with a mug of mostly whiskey and coke. I thank God that I wasn’t successful and that I passed out before I took enough to kill me or otherwise cause permanent harm. Depression is a terrible disease, that is exacerbated by mistreatment of certain drugs and alcohol, but suicide really is a choice that I hope none of you ever are in a position to have to consciously make.
I didn't go that far, but I've been that desperate. I wasn't thinking right. I'm sure Satan's schmucks had a hand in getting me to that point.

With a caveat of “unless there is evidence of fire” I have seen some drivers get burned over the years and that id horrific to watch.

Sadly, the policies of the United States government IS the reason cited by many terrorist organizations as to why they target us. That said, reasons are not excuses and while terrorists may attack us for sticking our collective nose in what they feel is their business, that does not excuse their actions. Terrorism is wrong. Attacking civilians for the actions of their government is wrong. but the answer to the question, while perhaps lacking in tact, is essentially, correct.
Don't forget that people who don't believe the same way they do are infidels and should be killed according to the koran. Those pieces are being intentionally left out.

Union rank & file members are not usually or even often the perpetrators of such extreme actions. Talk to most union guys and they’ll tell you all about the thug who stands in the corner when they conduct their meetings. Unions were long ago infiltrated by communists and the mob and the 2 learned from each other and joined forces. Now, the once benevolent organizations are the power hungry bullies they once fought against. People talk about corporate greed as if it’s the big businessmen of the early 20th century. Well Big Labor is the other side of that power coin. They are part and parcel of the big business movement of the new millennium. It’s a game of power. The tactics have changed little, but the players have evolved.
