Did anyone else have audio problems around minute 56 where he's telling the Dwight Schulz story?
When I first saw the illustration, I thought that was Neil Cavuto, not Peter Robinson.
I would agree with Dark City and Gattaca. I really loved The Fifth Element as well.
Bladerunner. I would also say A.I. I know I hated it, but I don't remember if it was all that well reviewed in the first place.
My dream job would be translator or cryptologist.
What happened to "GLoP Culture" as the title?
I hope you insure this one properly.
If you win votes by creating programs to help the poor, isn't it in your best interest to have as many poor people as possible? If you win votes by SUPPOSEDLY helping the wealthy, isn't it in your best interest that there be as many rich people as possible? After all, Bill Gates has the same number of votes as the poor person on welfare. How do Republicans win? By giving political favors to wealthy donors? To give political favors, you have to win office first. This logic has never made sense to me. It's so obviously to me that the Democrats are simply playing a numbers game to stay in power by playing Santa Clause with other people's money. Why can't other people see it? And what's so virtuous about being generous with other people's money anyway?
I gave up on scripted TV because I was sick of getting sucker punched, but recently, I heard good things about Portlandia from conservative sites, so I thought I'd give it a try. I went back and watched every episode over the holidays. It is truly funny. While not strictly conservative, it makes fun of liberals, so that's good enough for me. I highly recommend it.
Yes, Mark, all versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside" are sung that way.
I stopped 52 minutes in due to the sound quality.
This reminds me of Oprah starting the OWN network while she still had her TV show.
I've been a member for a couple of years now and I still don't completely understand how this sites works. But if I understand correctly, one of the flaws of this thread is that the advice (however fantastic it is) is coming from people who are already members. Maybe, in an effort to do market research, you could have a non-member thread open for a week or so to ask people what it would take to get them to join. You may get responses like "I don't have a credit card and you don't take Paypal." It may be helpful.
Pencilvania: Also, to drum up more Young Guns: if Dr. Rahe knows a student at Hillsdale who'd use a Ricochet subscription, or if anyone here knows a high school/college political science teacher who'd use it for lessons, or a Young Republicans group - I'd donate a subscription to them.
To give a gift subscription, do you need to know any more than the person's email address? · 14 hours ago
I think this is a great idea. I'd love to sponsor the membership of military members, too.
Damian, I do not believe that is the argument Eeyore was making. His point was that when these violent acts are committed in the UK, the law abiding citizens aren't allowed to defend themselves. My impression is that if a homeowner stabs an intruder in the middle of the night with a kitchen knife in self defense, the homeowner is more apt to go to prison than the criminal. It seems to me that more than an aversion to guns, the British have a low tolerance for lethal force, even if it's justified. I don't understand this mentality.
I would say $10 million in net worth.
