Re: What's up with Pelosi

i realize the conkland vocal band is rubbing their stubby shillelaghs raw over the possibility of witch-hunting the hated Speaker... but all of this really begs the question... in the 5 years we were apparently torturing and the GOP controlled Congress was seated... why no investigations and why no...

Re: More Americans “Pro-Life” Than “Pro-Choice” for First Time

deceptive poll... i consider myself "pro-life" but oppose making it illegal... also, keep watch on this poll to see if it's a sustained trend or a blip... moreover, if you dig deeper, 83% support keeping it legal in at least some circumstances... it's not nearly as tidy as you'd like to think. And ...

New debunking of "The Story of Stuff"

The video "The Story of Stuff" is biased as hell and showing it to school children (as has been done in many places, apparantly) amounts to indoctrination. Sustainability is a legit issue but the video stretches the truth to say the least. This is the first in a four-part series posted just a couple...

After Wyoming was nearly beaten by that mediocre NDSU team, I'd say Weber has a good shot. I'm taking 'em to win by 10.

Screw that Dijon sh8t. Get an 8-ounce megaburger, rare, with cheese, fried onions, and BBQ sauce or ketchup. Anyone who takes mustard on a burger is a big p*ssy. And I don't care if it's a truck driver or a white-shirted pencilneck who happens to be POTUS. You're crazy, mustard is a great condiment...
