That won't stop the anvils.
Seriously though, no politician can win by only appealing to one interest group. They do have to reach out. · 14 hours ago
And this is another thing that makes what he did really annoying.
A majority of the public supports marijuana legalization.

Are the people idiots? Yes.
Are they sheep. Yes. We demonstrate this daily.
Perhaps charts cheerleeding the wisdom of public opinion would have been relevant in another time, but those times they ain't.
It's just very deflating. You have hope for someone and then they disappoint you.
He was exciting, Mollie. He was interesting. Now he's boring again. · May 14, 2013 at 6:17pm
He's boring? Why, beccause he cut off the Libertarian rat-tail? Are Libertarians really just drugs and gays (as opposed to God and guns)? You can't really stand for the limited government you claim is your core without wringing your hands on two issues?
Honestly, despite libertarians strenuous denials I can't find this being anything less than a confirmation of the 'radical puritity test' the 'party tent with iron walls'. Paul was supposed to be this Libertarian behind enemy lines, kinda like the old man, but sane. When in the right place he would tear apart his shirt like superman, show the L and start ripping up administrations.
What DO you demand?!
Anthony Quinn gets a nice backhand about 5 seconds later but I couldn't find a better clip.
Someone's agent is getting a hefty E&O claim...
I sell insurance and I'm thinking of one account, a chemical company, that our agency holds. It has an umbrella in the amount of, I believe, 5-10million (not my account). In the insurance world one always advises larger companies to buy as much liability as they possibly can, for exaclty this eventuality, but in such a catastrophic loss such as this even with a reasonable umbrella of 10, 15 or even 20 million there will still be an uncovered loss.
But does it really matter? Will the government get back the money? No. Will their be a investigation? No.
Grand of the NYT write an article after the damage has been done.
I think some of the most interesting Christian martyrs i've heard of were several who denied Christ and converted to Islam instead of fleeing to the desert. They felt so bad they traveled to Constantinople and, after friday prayers let out of one of the largest mosques, started preaching Christ - and were beheaded on the spot.
How drunk is Dean in this video? I'm guessing he hits a flask when Newt is rebutting.
That first one is how I feel about all things soy. Although the worst possible experience is probably the unexpected taste of soy milk. When I was younger my mom used to keep the stuff along with the regular milk, it was scarring.
You mean Murder?
Peter, denial is not just a river in Egypt. Considering last weeks "Santorum could have won" argument, I'm starting to wonder...Republicans, including Regan, are simply managing the welfare state - as you said Regan was growing the economy to feed it. I can't seem to refute Rob's argument. Rand Paul and a bunch of guys have "found their voice"? You better give me something else because we couldn't "find our voice" with 2010 and the Tea Party, so what other approach is there? Head to the pews?
Well, the way the book ends Card himself suggests that cultures that cannot communicate with each other will inevitably go to war. As such, the movie really has to touch on that theme insomeway.
Card, however, doesn't attribute this inevitability to "human evil". It's tragic, but not malicious.
If Card is involved with the movie as people suggest, I assume he'll try to make sure his philosophical intent gets a fair showing. · 0 minutes ago
I do hope so, I was letting my cynicism get the better of me (with good reason I'd say).
Who doesn't think there's going to be heavy doses of "oh, evil Western Milliteristic Imperialists who would rather wipe out the 'Other' than understand him".
"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
