I was initially thinking it was taking something away from the accomplishment, but intentional fouls at this point in the game is a valid tactic that everyone uses. It’s just a matter of who you foul, so Villanova choosing this player is fine in my book…and the tactic worked. She only made one of the shots.

Mystery – The difference between the Blaze and HuffPo/Kos is that the majority of the people here realize the gov’t is corrupt and agree that the BS done by both sides is wrong. On HuffPo and Kos, they think only the GOP is corrupt and that if only we could grow the gov’t even more, and make sure only Dems were in charge everything would be peachy. That is, the HuffPo and Kos fans are crazy…and that makes them dangerous.
BTW – Wasn’t Obama’s administration supposed to change the way gov’t worked? That doesn’t seem to be happening…unless you consider it’s getting worse.

So, he thinks they’ll save the taxpayers money by changing the government’s energy use to “green energy”. He does know that green energy is much more expensive, right?

“If we make the switch to a global clean energy economy…” millions, if not billions, will die.

Racer – Do you think your specific situation negates the fact that outside of the bigger cities in the states the population tends to be conservative?
I love it when someone uses one specific example to try to refute a general truism.

The crusades were a response to many years of muslim aggression. The muslims were spreading islam into an ever increasing area by conquering those areas and forcing the people to convert or die.
So, blaming the crusades exclusively on christians is a bit naive.

Sorry Hand, that’s 2 sentences.
Obama has a difficult time with honesty.

watchingitall – you need to sort the list by the different columns. The way you were looking at it was most likely alphabetically by country

I agree he’s not from Africa, but presidents Bush and Reagan, and VP Quayle, weren’t stupid either and I have a feeling you’d laugh at jokes about their intelligence.

He knows the protesters aren’t going to respect the police but expects the police to minimize needless confrontation.
Definition of “needless confrontation” – protesters vandalizing and looting the stores/property of those “rich” small business owners.

You know, what Obama said sounded somewhat reasonable, but you just can’t trust him…or the Democrats in general. Yes, Reagan did something similar (but not the same thing or even close to the same way), but he regretted it when he realized the Dems never intended to keep their end of the bargain and seal the border.
So, what Obama said didn’t sound too bad, but he’s the best at sounding reasonable and then doing whatever the heck he wants once he gets his way.

1) Stock market up? With that up while GDP is down – gee, can anyone say unsustainable bubble?
2) 48 months of consecutive job growth? Job growth of 1 – 2% while new job seekers at a higher percentage is not what any reasonable person would call a “win”.
3) Deficit cut in half? I’m always amazed when liberals use Bush’s last budget as the standard for deficit spending in Obama’s presidency. $5B in increased debt in Bush’s 8 years vs $7B in Obama’s 5 years. There is no way you can call that “deficit cut in half” with a straight face.

Sorry, I have to comment on this completely insignificant part…
You put, “But it is OVERWHELMING black racists now! Period!!”…but it was actually an exclamation point, not a period.
Again, sorry, but I had a chuckle when I read it.

I agree with him on this as well, but the problem is that while he pays “lip service” to personal responsibility, his actions and policies are primarily geared towards “it’s all the fault of the ‘rich’ and the gov’t is the only thing that can help the poor/minorities”.
So, it’s nice when he says it, but I don’t think he really believes it.

Now at 22 years and both of us are still extremely happy. The key: we each want what’s best for the other.

I went to lowly U. of New Mexico, but I must be a geek since I figured out the right answer in my head in about 10 seconds.

I’m surprised at the people who claim to play poker all the time and think that going all in with 2 pair (matching the 2 top cards on the table) was a “rookie mistake”. Have you really played that much poker?
The only thing that was going to beat him at that point was trips…which is unlikely (and yes, he could have had a straight at that point but I doubt he would have been in with a 2 – 5). Granted, we didn’t see the previous betting, but based on how long it took the guy to call, it looked to me like the “all in” call was the right one. He had the guy beat and lost strictly due to bad luck. That tells me he had the right read on his opponent.

Slappy – Some things in life are obvious. If I was attacked by someone I wouldn’t need a jury to tell me whether or not the attacker is guilty. In this case, the video clearly shows there was absolutely no reason to shoot the kid. Even if the guilty guy was “mentally ill” that doesn’t mean he isn’t guilty. Either way, we all have a right to our opinions. We’re not saying he shouldn’t get a fair trial, but to claim we shouldn’t express our opinions on this obviously guilty person is pretty haughty of you.

@tomferrari – nabu’s post couldn’t have been saying that there were a thousand killed during “turf wars” in Oregon in 1995 since there were only 129 murders in the state that year.
