    No one commenting on her claim of sexism in these military movies. I’m not aware of any military women writing books. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I admit I might be behind on my info. Are women on the front lines now?

    If any women in the military have a good story to tell, go for it! However, don’t make a movie simply to fill that gap. Make the movie worthwhile, not some shallow attempt to cash in.

    Oh, no… with all of the remakes, someone might get the idea to remake Private Benjiman or GI Jane now. Enough with the remakes!

    I don’t view braces on the same level as plastic surgery. Teeth whitening, perhaps. Decades ago when I got my braces, I seem to recall there being reasons beyond just straight teeth. I thought some health reasons were mentioned too. It’s been too long to remember specifics.

    I am a Christian and I agree with you. Too many people encounter the bad Christians who are clueless about how they push people away and cause them to generalize and hate Christians. Although I don’t like the book, UnChristian by David Kinnaman discusses public perception of Christianity and what some Christians are doing wrong. Except for the last chapter, I felt each chapter contradicted the authors option in the preceding chapter. Each chapter seemed to disprove his views in other chapters. However, I agree with the overall problem that was being presented, and I have witnessed too many holier-than-thou Christians who speak down to others. I can completely understand why many people hate us.

    Unfortunately, that’s fiction. No guarantee the programmers will use them or have morals. We could end up with Forbin Project or Terminator type futures. If there’s a corporation involved, it’s all about profits without morals. They could add their own little rules. Although I might be jaded about the company I recently left, I have witnessed too many young mangers with no experience make stupid decisions like buying new fleet vehicles that will have better gas mileage but they’re too small to carry all of the parts needed for our jobs. Look we’re being “green” but we’ll use more gas because we have to get parts from a co-worker or go to a storage shed.

    For the past few years, they just kept making bad decisions. No one was happy when I left, and when I speak to my former co-workers, they’re still annoyed with those above them.

    OK, I drifted a bit. My point is for major things like what’s being predicted, we need to see wise decisions being made. We need to make sure it’s not some narrow minded manager who only thinks in terms of numbers and profits and ignores potential consequences.

    All text after the article is italicized. The titles of the articles on the right side of the web page are italicized too. Everything after Other Must-Read Stories is affected. Looks like a stray formatting command in the code for the page. The ads are separate from the code on the page so that text is not affected. The same for the text entry box. However, the options – Cancel Reply, Post, Characters Remaining are altered.

    Anyway, someone needs to find the stray piece of code.

    Random thought. Were they washed up or were their careers ruined because of their faith? I know some were denied roles because they were Christians. Perhaps not all of them, but it happens often enough. Conservatives aren’t treated well either.

    Glenn has mentioned the web site himself on his radio show twice that I can remember. That last time was within the past few weeks. He’s working on it, but it may take a few months. Some of us have guessed contracts might be involved.

    I don’t know what device you’re using, but my first guess is your app store is opening because something on the page requires a plugin or update. Flash or Java plugin would be my first guess. Some of the embedded videos don’t play on my phone, and your device might be looking for a player. I’d check my browser or system for an option that might be triggering that. See if there’s an option for opening the App Store whenever a file is loaded that your device can’t open.

    Can’t wait for that plane to arrive.

    Do the professional rioters have a how-to video? I only know how to make it explode. I must be doing something wrong.

    If the borders are illegal, then why claim any nationality? OR are they following the belief in the southern states being stolen from Mexico?

    If the moviegoers are a bunch of angry Tea Partiers, how big does that make the Tea Party?

    He’s commented on it even before that, but no one seems to pay attention. I forget exactly when. It was months ago on his radio show, and he mentioned it again within the past two weeks. The recent mention went into more detail about how it happened.

    You can get them on Amazon. They have the pens and clocks. I got one of the pens that record in 720p for about $40. I have used it to record a class once. I mainly got the ceiling with it in my pocket because of the slope on my chest. The normal shirt pocket doesn’t let it point straight forward. Testing in my apartment, it sucks in low lighting even with lamps on. The photos and video are nice in good lighting. I can guesstimate where to aim the camera. No viewfinder. It records to a microSD card. There’s no way to monitor the battery or recording space left so I don’t know the limits yet. The class was about 2 hours.

    Someone pulled a finger on me! He quickly regretted doing that. …get out the gas masks.

    Please proofread.

    “Fitzsimmons called the number the scammers and left for her in messages and recorded her entire conversation with the aim of putting the footage online.” …the scammers had left for her…?

    ” Fitzsimmons played along, even pretending she would the money.” …pretending she would pay the money?

    Puro, who was an independent contractor for a financial firm, was cut off from the outfit that used his services as of Jan. 21, KMSP-TV reported.
    ————-

    Grammar issue – They’ve been using his services since January 21? Awkward sentence structure. Possibly – Puro was an independent contractor for a financial firm and as of January 21, he was cut off from the outfit that used his services, KMSP-TV reported.

    Although a judge would probably not allow it, I wonder if I could change my name to Mickey Mouse and get elected that way. :) I’ve heard about people voting for Mickey before. It might be interesting if someone had the same name as a fictional character used for a write-in vote.

    I am aware election regulations might not allow that. One of my random thoughts.

    I’ll believe it when I see it. Every speech topic is a “top priority” but I haven’t seen any results that haven’t been doctored in some way. I don’t know if asking about his birthday was just a BS job to win people over or not. He can fake it, fail, and blame someone else like Iranian government. He has to earn my trust.

    He’s been in movies for a few years already – 40 Year Old Virgin, Pineapple Express, Knocked Up, Kung Fu Panda (both movies), the TV series Freaks and Geeks. He’s been acting for about 15 years now.

    It seems MMS was just an excuse to raid the home. This is wrong!
