I love how Naso based his interpretation of the 80's merits based on movies he's watched. Roll Eyes
2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: DE Gov. 2016: Beau Biden running on: April 21, 2014, 04:46:40 pm
Talking about the Gov of DE seems a lot like Cook County, IL and the office of board president. Cook is about half the land area of DE, but has five times the population. It's the only county in IL granted home rule status so the county board and president have a lot of authority over taxes and regulation. And like the GOP in DE the GOP has no chance of gaining the Cook presidency.

And yet even small state governors are imputed to be potential presidential material, unlike the heads of much more populated large cities and counties. How big is Chicago, NYC, LA, compared to AR, AK or MT? And yet Clinton, Schweitzer and Palin could all be considered presidential candidates (or at least legitimate Veep picks), unlike the mayors of municipalities with vastly larger (and usuallly much more diverse) populations and budgets.

Guliani was of course an exception, but only after 9/11 "nationalized" his standing beyond being a good executive to foriegn affairs/terrorism issues.

As I said once I'd moderate not per the Terms of Service but the the Word of Jesus Christ.  For there is neither troll nor quality poster, neither banned nor unbanned, nor is there red avatar or blue avatar for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Now this is classic trolling.

If by "classic" you mean "really funny", then yeah. Cheesy

We'll see, but I strongly doubt we see any sort of mass pardon or commutation before the 4th of November.

How much of Game of Thrones have you watched, BRTD?

Basically whatever has been on whenever I'm at someone's who has it on. I should probably add the season 1 DVDs to my Netflix queue.

So you base your comparison based on having watched GoT sproradically at other people's houses, and presumably sometimes starting halfway through an episode? Roll Eyes

Hell no. And few Marylanders outside the Eastern Shore would consider themselves so either. Culturally, politically, or socially.

11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: More than 100 hate-crime murders linked to single website, report finds on: April 20, 2014, 06:16:13 pm
Hopefully, NSA should monitor that website, hosting dangerous persons, instead of random law-abiding citizens.

Or we could you know, respect civil liberties.

How on earth is law enforcement monitoring Stormfront a violation of civil liberties?

Seriously? I know this is the internet where bad ideas abound, but come on now.....
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How would ending the War on Drugs happen? on: April 20, 2014, 06:11:13 pm
Don't you know supply and demand? As long people will want drugs, it will be interesting for them to sell drugs.

That's not how supply and demand work. People have limited capital. They utilize capital to maximize returns vs. risk. The cartels sold drugs because they lacked capital for legitimate business endeavors, and legitimate businesses were prohibited from participating in their industry.

Both of those circumstances are changing rapidly. Furthermore, the illegal drug industry has the same immiserizing effects that plague agriculture.

"Drug cartels didn't enter legitimate businesses because they lacked capital." I assure you all that by the time drug dealing organizations developed to the 'cartel' level, they had MORE than enough capital to aggressively enter any legitimate industry they chose (and in fact already owned substantial swaths of private businesses _ that point).

Even by Arrogant Demand's standards, this is one of the stupidest things he's ever posted.

Sorry, because.......?

In the ideal world, where I'm not plagued by financial, transportation, or time-related obstacles, it'd be Pizza Hut.

17  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Pennsylvania High School student asks Miss America to prom, is suspended on: April 20, 2014, 10:08:40 am

Apparently at Central York High School, asking Miss America to the prom is worth a 3.5 day suspension...
Full story: Senior plans to ask Ms. America on date at upcoming school assembly. Story spreads like wildfire through school. Administration hears about it. Principal tells Senior just before the assembly not to do so as it'd be 'inappropriate'. Student does so anyway.

If you knowingly stick your wang in a wringer, expect some pain. Still, 3 1/2 days seems excessive.

19  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Official Stanley Cup Playoffs MEGATHREAD! on: April 19, 2014, 04:14:53 pm
I really want St. Louis to win their series.  I fear the Kings are toast and won't last long.

Afraid of being sniped this June?

Actually, no, I think the Blues are a very good team who hasn't sniffed the Cup in far too long.  I'd be thrilled to make it to the finals no matter who we would play.  Smiley

When and how bad does Fleury meltdown this year, Uncle Gramps?

At any time, and probably bad.   They trust him so much Vokoun is back on the regular roster.  I do think we'll get by Columbus.  We were 5-0 against them in the regular season.

If he does, it's curtains for Bylsma as head coach.

Yep. RIP

I wouldn't.  I mean... they run away with a playoff spot every year.  Where have you seen the Caps ever since they panicked and fired Boudreau, who has only gone on to turn the Ducks from a last place team when he got there to a 1st place Cup contender.  How the hell do you blame him for a goalie absolutely falling off a cliff.  I mean... the pucks Fleury was letting in last year were pitiful.  An obvious case of a player completely losing his head out there.  

This, I could MUCH sooner see us replace Fleury before Bylsma.

BTW, George, the wife and I are in town and going to the Rochester Inn to see the game if you wanna meet up there in about 90 minutes. Cheesy

EDIT: Or maybe the Franklin Inn about 3 miles up Rochester. Call me if you're interested in hooking up.

Don't have HBO.

Neither do I.  I have to watch it a few hours after the broadcast.

Huh? Where? Huh

Or do you have a friend that pirates? Wink

I download it myself.

Forgive my ignorance: What site do you download it from?
