.. or at least learn what the term, “Neocon” means. Bush and Christie don’t quality, because they make no pretense of being conservative (they just show up at events.) Ditto for Rand Paul – he’s unapologetically libertarian, altho’ he’s been consistenly more conservative on defense than his father. The others have no “neo” about them – they’ve run and legislated as conservatives from the get-go.

I question why it takes over 300 pages to say, “internet service providers can’t throttle upload / download speeds on certain competitive content.” Just as I questioned why it required over 1000 pages to require individuals to buy health insurance. Look at what the latter piece of legislation has cost this country, and put two and two together. You have a pretty clear picture of what the future of the internet will be. I question the entire premise of the bill. Can anyone provide an example of an instance during which your internet service provider restricted your access to a site? Or created a situation that disabled your ability to stream a television show or movie? How much did it cost you? Is it worth having the government step in to “FIX” the problem? For the record, I’m still waiting for Obama to cut the “waste, fraud and abuse” out of Medicaid, Medicare and all of the social programs like he promised to do. After all, this administration isn’t shy about using the auditors of Team IRS to dig through records. Seems to me that their talents are being wasted.

I’m guessing that Gaga has done the kind of music that pays well. To her credit, she also has a pretty strong family that may be advising her that strutting around with her tush hanging out doesn’t work as well for a woman who is over 30, and if she wants some longevity she’d better start transitioning now. Perhaps she hid her theatrical / classical vocal abilities until a time when they would better serve her.

Yup. They were the ones slaughtering Christians and Jews in “palestine.” The Crusades were organized to liberate Jerusalem from the savages. Hmmm……
Centuries long battles in the Balkans to stop the Islamic invasion of Europe. Just who was it Dracula was famous for slaughtering in defense of his home land?

What’s so ironic here as well is that the slave trade is alive and well TODAY in Islamic countries like Morocco. Islamists still make money selling BLACKS to wealthy sheiks who use them primarily as sex toys (male and female – although Islam preaches against homosexuality, it’s “okay” if you do it with your property) Why not mention that? And it seems that Islamists have been conducting its own crusades for the past 2000 years – against non-Muslims throughout the Middle East, the Armenians, and now Europeans, the Japanese and Americans. Obama isn’t all that popular or respected by the Islamists, and there have already been threats by ISIS to murder him in the White House. No matter how often he throws Christians under the bus, he still isn’t earning points with Muslims. And the rest of the world sees what a complete putz he is.

I have to agree with that! So, it snows, and snows hard, for a few days. Stay home – call in to work (most places would shut down anyway if the weather were really bad) and enjoy it. In most places, the streets would be clear enough to be passable by the next day. And coming by the end of the week – temperatures over 32, which means all of what has fallen will melt (and then you’ll hear panicked weather forecasters talking about flood dangers.)

What makes the entire “global climate change” premise laughable is that the earth’s temperature has only been measured since the 1800s, but the earth – according to the same “scientists” – is without a doubt over a billion years old. So, their sample size is .000002% of the entire life cycle of the earth, and that’s assuming the data they present is truthful and accurate (which we know from the e-mails out of East Anglia, they are not.) No statistician would EVER make a conclusion based on a sample size that is SO insignificant. So, either their scientists have no concept of statistics, or their statisticians are delusional enough to believe that a statistically insignificant value should be given merit. All I can say is, I hope that these people are forced to take a medication under Obamacare that was only tested on .000002% of the population before it was approved by the FDA. Then we’ll see whether their appreciation for statistics changes.

I guess Howard Dean is looking for an endorsement from Michael Moore. Which is a little like an unemployed high school dropout taking career advice from a drug-addicted homeless guy.
I was thinking meth – she looks like a long-term tweeker.

Instead of bitchin’, Oates might try and buy some WF stock. It pays a great dividend and has held its value throughout the economic downturn. And that’s because the company DOESN’T do stupid stuff with other people’s money – like give everyone a $10,000 a year raise. Mr. Oates has gotten one too many participation trophies; it’s time he learned what the word “accomplishment” means.

It obviously didn’t work for him, did it?

If he were a democrat that would be a resume enhancer. Hard to cast aspersions when your side has zero standards whatsoever.

Krugman is right. After all, Obama can take credit for:
1) being MIA as Ambassador Stevens was being murdered in retribution for Obama bragging about killing bin Laden
2) The members of Seal Team 6 being targeted for assassination and losing their lives after Obama stated openly that they were responsible for taking bin Laden out.
3) The encroachment of ebola and enterovirus into the country thanks to his lax border control policies.
4) The reduction of the median household income by over 10%.
5) A static U6 unemployment rate of close to 12% since his first inauguration.
6) The destruction of the private health insurance industry and health care in general.
Most of us wouldn’t consider these to be resume builders, but apparently to a leftist, they represent success.

It’s obvious that these gays targeted the business just because it advertises itself as a Christian T shirt company. The owner recommended another supplier to these people – one who would produce the shirts AT A DISCOUNT, so it’s not as though he just told them to go pound sand. These people are offended for the price of whatever they can extort from someone. Hope the karma for these members of the Gaystapo is swift and sure.

Or conversely, demanding that a porn shop also carry Bibles and put them in a prominent place in the business.

Sad to say, the tapeworm solution is still around! There was some girl recently who was rushed to the hospital for severe abdominal pain. Turns out that she was full of tapeworms, and that her mother had purchased the tapeworm pills so that she wouldn’t gain any weight and would stay eligible to compete in beauty pageants.

Of course, not one iota of investigation as to what kind of household the kid was hiding from either. Glad that the child was found alive and well.

You’re off base there, Zappa. The swastika was a religious symbol before being adopted by the Nazi party as it’s logo. A reasonable person could argue that it is merely a folk design and unless it’s proven that it was intended to be used to harass, demean or incite violence, it should be allowed on a cake. So, putting that swastika on your favorite biker dude’s birthday cake SHOULD be protected under the First Amendment, because the bikers don’t need provocation to be violent, that is their nature, and no one other than bikers would attend the ceremony so there is no harassment involved.

Really? How many customers have you ever had in your career? And how many have you “fired” because they were a**holes? This happens a lot in business – when customers push your buttons and are obviously taking advantage of you. Business people should have the latitude to do business with whomever they choose, just as customers should be allowed to make informed choices as to the businesses they frequent. Had the couple not made a point of letting the business owner know that this was a same-sex ceremony, they probably could have had the cake without any questions asked.
