    A man did not write that. A woman did. Maybe his wife or some left wing activist.

    I lived in New Hampshire in the 80′s and one May morning I left my apartment to go to work and we had gotten a foot of snow overnight. I had a Datsun 210 hatchback and I couldn’t remember where I parked it. I walked around and finally found it and took the broom out of the back seat. When you live in snow country you don’t use a scraper. It’s a short handled broom with a scraper on one side. After about five or ten minutes of trying to clear the snow off the car so I could drive to work I gave up. I worked nine tenths of a mile away so I just decided to walk. It was actually a beautiful day and I knew the snow would be gone in a day or two so why bother? It was a nice walk.

    I worked in White River Junction Vermont in the 1980′s and this type of thing happened every spring. White River Junction, formally Hartford, is where the White and Connecticut rivers combine. The difference is that the melting river ice would form huge blocks, not crystals like in the videos. I remember once driving along the river and seeing huge blocks of ice on the other side of the road. I guess the local towns had the equipment to move them off the road. They were bigger than my car. Houses weren’t in danger because the area was very hilly as if the rivers had created a valley and all the house were high up on hillsides.

    The jokes were bad enough, they just weren’t that funny, but it was his delivery that really killed the routine. He performed as if someone had just handed him the material before he got up there and so he had to read it all from the papers he had infront of him. He read it as if he’d never seen it before so his timing was way off.

    I don’t know what’s worse. The article or the comments. Is the label “autistic” slapped on every kid these days? The fact that seven year old is picky eater is called life. Kids are picky eaters. If my daughter balked at eating a cheeseburger because it was cut in half she’d have two choices: eat it or go hungry. My kid hated tomatoes and lettuce on her burgers and I’d ask for them plain but IF the kitchen put tomatoes and lettuce on it her only choice was to take it off. Same thing with herbs. If she saw green anything in her kid-sized spaghetti and meatballs she’d complain. Tough. Eat it or go hungry.
    What the hell is wrong with parents who let a 7-year-old run their lives like this? I don’t care if she autistic. She still needs to learn manners. Shame on all the adults in this story. This world really is doomed.

    Conservatives could learn a valuable lesson from this story. If the situation had been reversed and the homeowner had put up a McCain/Palin sign that violated the size rules and the HOA told them to remove it, they would have removed it. It might get some attention, but not much.

    Ah, but the agrieved party was liberal. Liberals fight to the death. They never give up. Never stop attacking, will do anything to defeat the other side because the other side is Evil with a capiatl E and MUST be defeated at all costs.

    Until conservatives get that through their thick skulls this country is doomed.

    That was very moving, but I am so tired of great singers like Hudson using events like this to show off their vocal range. We know you can sing. Just sing the damn song the way it was meant to be sung.

    More proof that conservatives should stop the hero worship of cops.

    That interview was infuriating. Ted Cruz had the perfect opportunity to go on the offense with David Gregory and he didn’t do it. He could have destroyed Gregory’s credibility by simply asking him why he didn’t play the entire NRA ad. Or better yet, demand he play the entire ad to expose Gregory’s hypocrisy and obsfucation f the fact that the ad showed HIM as being one of the elites who send his own kids to private schools with armed security. And THEN Cruz let Gregory get away with saying Obama’s kids are protected by the Secret Service. David Gregory sends is kids to the same schoo the Obama’s send ther kids to. Sidwell Friends. It’s been all over the place that they have 11 armed guards.
    Republicans should require that all of their elected officials go to Media School before going o television.

    What a wasted opportunity.

    “Do you agree with Christie on the meaning of American exceptionalism?”

    No. The term “American Exceptionalism” refers to the founding principles of the country. It has nothing to do with how good and noble and generous Americans are. Christie’s narrative plays into the meaning that is rejected by liberals. Americans are not any better than anyone else, and the country is not better than any other country because of our deeds.

    America is an exceptional nation because it is unique in the history of the world. America was founded under the principles laid out in the Declaration. The concept of individual, unalienable rights, that come from God not the government. American Exceptionalism refers to the founding principle of a government that derives it’s power from the consent of the governed.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”

    That’s what makes America an exceptional nation.

    Oliver is like a lot of liberals who have causes. He’s making money off of it. Of course he’s going to insult anyone who gets in the way of his payday. Liberals think that if the money they make comes from the government it’s somehow not capitalism.

    The notion that paying union dues should be voluntary is ridiculous. Why would anyone pay dues if they are going to reap the same benefits that the union bargained for without paying dues? The state would have to have a two tiered payroll system that keeps track of who is in the union and who isn’t. Collective bargaining would be meaningless even if such a payroll system could be put in place because you have no leverage unless the entire workforce threatens a strike.

    Public employees should not be allowed to be unionized at all. Period. They have enough safe guards through civil service rules. Outlaw public employee unions and get it over with.

    Has the video been changed since it was posted? The one I just watched doesn’t even come close to the description.

    I wish people would who comment on the “blood libel” line in Palin’s video statement would get it right. Those two words were preceded by one very important word that nobody seems to want to mention. Even conservatives don’t seem to realize what her statement meant. Ironic, isn’t it, that so many people who call Sarah Palin stupid have overlooked the most important word in the sentence which makes her use of the term “blood libel” clear.

    “..within hours of an unfolding tragedy, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel…”

    Manufacture. She was in no way claiming the accusations against her went back to the Jewish blood libel, but that the media had invented a new one for her. It was also her way of calling them liars without coming out and calling them liars.

    Since he claims he’s been “clean” for 2 1/2 years, I guess we can chalk up his obnoxiousness to his wonderful personality.

    Very heartwarming story. I loved the part at the end where he described how it didn’t matter if he made $25 or 25 cents an hour begging. He always tried to keep a positive attitude towards people no matter how much money he made.
