Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

Harlowe, that's more of that 'both sides do it' stuff that drives me nuts. The truth is, the President is using his powers to the limit. All Presidents do that. The problem is Congress won't set limits on Executive power. That's why you have nonsense like the War Powers Act, the PATRIOT Act, and the...

PATRIOT Act, bitches. Suck on it.

And forget about those fucking hippies who were moaning about it ten years ago.

Re: Random Access Memories (Daft Punk)

You think maybe that was also an artifact of it being a loose concept album rather than a bunch of singles? Also, I'm not a 'dance floor' guy (unless you mean, 'has the size of a dance floor'), so I gravitate more towards stuff like 'Digital Love' and 'Voyager'. I also enjoyed the 'live music' aspec...

Random Access Memories (Daft Punk)

1) This is fucking genius.

Re: Syria

I wonder how well the GOP thinks it will do with minorities as they watch them throw any kind of shit to the wall to try and get it to stick to Obama. I'm loving watching them get more and more desperate to seal their minority. Oh you mean just like when they tried to lose the white vote when they ...

It wasn't about denials and approvals. It was about targetting certain groups for aggressive treatment, while not applying that same standard to others.

Re: Syria

No one disagrees that it's a bad thing people died in Benghazi. Everyone agrees that at a lower level than SecState, warnings were marginalized. Everyone agrees that the military couldn't have ridden to the rescue. So what you're bitching about is what they put into a press release, when it comes to...

Re: Syria

McCain's public personality has changed a lot, and for the worse, since that failed Presidential run. Notice how rarely he smiles anymore.

I don't think he's the guy who wrote Faith Of My Fathers anymore.

Re: I just don't fucking get "Art"

Several reasons. Rothko's a huge name in postmodern art, and his works are highly desireable. Second, a lot of rich people, having got richer the last few years for reasons best discussed in the politics section and worthy of tumbrel rides, have a boatload more cash to sling on rarities like this on...

Re: Syria

It's true, some have absolutely ZERO consideration let alone concern for what that means in US servicemen lives. I hope Obama involves us as little as humanly possible in that mess. Remember, Bush was in a champagne unit in Vietnam, and his advisers all managed to miss that one through multiple def...

Ask them WHY they want a war with Syria and at base you always end up with Michael Ledeen's comment: "Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business," Decade since invasion of Iraq, and...

Best part about the US doing nothing is that Hezbollah and Al-Qaida will continue to be at opposite sides of this war and at each other's throats.
