    Very observant GKar… incidentally one of the best sci-fi characters created…

    Back to McCain and his ilk though, it’s almost like programming. Men like him can’t say anything substantive. Once they began to honestly speak about a subject with any sort of importance, a Robocop esque “Directive 4″ kicks in and shuts them down. They then revert back to their scripted responses.

    Umm… I’m not sure what to take away from this… Kylie Minogue is still hot?

    While I don’t share Matt’s opinion on the show, I do agree that he has a valid point. That is the feminists and some on the left are outraged now? After Sansa was raped by her @#$hole husband?

    Did they miss the first 4 seasons? This is the 3rd rape shown on the show; Rape #1 was Khal Drogo raping Daenerys on their wedding night (it was portrayed differently in the book). Rape #2 was Jaime and Cersi beside their dead son. On top of the raping, countless graphic deaths, and incestuous relationships, we’ve had a pregnant woman stabbed to death on her wedding night.

    But somehow the feminists are upset at the Ramsey/Sansa rape scene, arguably one of the least graphic scene in the entire show…

    This is akin to outrage at ISIS members cheating on their taxes…

    When I was hastily writing my post, I was only thinking of the 50 million collecting food stamps. SS, Medicare, Obamacare, etc… didn’t even factor in… Thanks for making my day worse swalt :P

    It’s sad, but I believe Hillary is going to be our next president. You already have nearly 20% of the people on the government dole already, so guess whom they’re voting for. Among the people that still have jobs (or want to work), assume 25% are committed liberals. That’s almost 40% of the (potential) voting public already firmly in the Democratic camp.

    Now, no doubt the lemmings in the Iowa Democratic group are ill informed morons. But most of their independent peers aren’t any less ignorant. Certainly some of these folks are very busy working two or more jobs to make up for the one Obama likely regulated out of existence (or to another country) and don’t have much bandwidth for news after work, husband/wife and kids; Many others, however, just don’t care. They care about the latest iPhone, the latest episode of the Housewives, or what dude some slutty Hollywood socialite is $%#%!*%, but actual important stuff like current events… meh…

    However they do know Hillary Clinton. They don’t know her accomplishments, her principals or her plans, but they heard a soundbyte on ABC or saw a headline on NY Times that spoke about how great she was. They may have also read or heard something from the same sources stating that the conservative candidates were at an upscale restaurant the other day feasting on roasted baby.

    Long story short, the deck is stacked against any conservative candidate and most people are too stupid to realize they’re being lied to.

    Just took the test over answering only two questions correctly. The rest I know were incorrect. Here’s the result:

    You passed with flying colors! You clearly value this Nation greatly!

    You find the past of our nation vitally important, and believe the best way to avoid future mistakes is to learn from history. You are well-informed and very concerned with what makes this country great. You vote in every election and probably volunteer in your community as well. You are a true patriot! Way to go!

    So I guess there’s no way to actually fail this. My “passing with flying colors” is, at best, a participation trophy.

    Hey Blaze… Most of us are not liberals and don’t need participation trophies or the like to feel good about ourselves. While it’s normally not my intention to make mistakes or fail, at least I can learn from what I did wrong and move forward (not “forward” in the progressive sense, mind you).

    That little snot nosed brat deserved it. He called the teacher a “the N-word”, was obviously pushing him (at least trying to… that teacher is a fricking mountain) and trying to provoke him. Agree with others here that the teacher showed a great deal of restraint. I’ve had teachers that had done worse to students for far less egregious behavior.

    If I were a principal of any school, that teacher would be #1 on my hiring list.

    He may have been part of the Army Parachute Team.

    The article above mentions SSGT Brandon Valle (picture no longer working though).

    I’m an adult and not a big comicbook fan, but I’ve really enjoyed the Marvel movies. I thought Age of Ultron was very good. I was a bit surprised though. The theater we saw it at was maybe half full (matinee showing). The first Avengers movie was packed opening weekend (again a matinee showing). If I recall correctly, almost all of the Marvel movies had a full or near full theater when I went to see them on opening weekend. Perhaps it’s due to the reasons The Blaze listed above, or maybe it’s just saturation (e.g. too much Marvel). This is the 12th Marvel movie in the last 7 years (Ant Man is coming out this summer, so that’s #13). The movies have been consistently enjoyable, but sometimes one can have too much of a good thing.

    I say good for Mayweather and good for those people invited. Sounds like fun. You can call him overrated or low class or what have you, but it’s his money. He’s earned it. It’s not costing us anything for him to throw his party, unlike the first family’s lavish vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard and the various White House gala’s.

    That’s called Pavlovian or classical conditioning… Much like a dog, liberals are trained to respond to certain words and/or phrases. While “George W. Bush” or “capitalism” will elicit the response you mentioned, the names “Barack Obama”, “Hillary Clinton” or the word “socialism” will cause them to salivate.

    @SquareHead

    Thanks for the link… Will look at it… Unlike the a-holes on the left, I’m not so arrogant to assume that I can’t be wrong. :)

    It’s my belief that the WTC attacks caught the the US with its pants down. We just left the 90s where we (and the government) was far less paranoid about a terrorists hiding behind every corner. I’m sure there were rumblings in the intelligence community that something big might be going down, but it was ignored or not reported. The biggest cover-up, in my humble opinion, was how much involvement the Saudi government had. There were probably other smaller cover-ups to save face regarding various agencies and bureaucrats, but nothing in regard to our government participating, either directly or indirectly, in the attacks.

    That being said, the statist in the upper echelons of out government (both right and left of the aisle) certainly didn’t let a good crisis go to waist. Rather than going after the bad guys, they went after us too… We need the PATRIOT act for our own protection… please…

    All this is right up Emperor Palpatine’s… err… President Obama’s alley. We’re all pals with the Iranians after all.

    Not to be flippant, but Charleton Heston walked with Martin Luther… back in the early 16th century? Wow! I mean who would have suspected it? He looked great for a 400+ year old man in Ben Hur and the Ten Commandments. He was beginning to show his age in True Lies and Any Given Sunday though, but still not terrible for almost 500. :)

    Smart girl and at only 19 years old too. There might very well be hope for this country.

    This is the “tolerant” left after all… It’s a war on whomever isn’t like them, at least from an ideological standpoint. Our grandparents would have called them fascists.

    LOL… :)
    I never voted him in. He was a rep for parts of LA county (mostly the San Fernando valley, I think). Anyway Nunez was termed out and was succeeded by another Democrat.

    I’m a bit north of there, though still surrounded by a lot of liberals and progressives :(
