It is the end of an era. His wife (Sally Quinn) told C-SPAN a few weeks back that he was in the final stage of his battle with Alzheimers.

RIP to one of the giants of journalism. If only todays media could be more like him.

Very compelling (the political horse-trading scenes especially; I think the decision to focus it so squarely on the thirteenth amendment instead of turning it into some dumb Lincoln biopic was a very good one) until Spielberg had to go and ruin everything with his goddamn stupid ending.

Oh yeah, the movie should have ended with the celebrations of the Amendment's passage. There really was no need to continue up to the assassination we all know about anyway.
I didn't see the ending, but I figured that is how it would have ended. IMO, the movie would have ended with the celebration of the amendment being passed and then skipped ahead to a very brief final scene on the assassination that would have highlighted how Lincoln literally was a martyr for freedom.

Our capitalist media reports on fluffy human interest stories rather than the destruction caused by rapacious predatory capitalism. Typical.

Oh stop.

Being a Marxist means breaking from the liberal-humanist frame of mind. It was hard for me and it will be hard for you.
Or you could just quit trying to be a Marxist and be normal you know?

Says the libertarian?
No, says the conservative capitalist parasite with libertarian leanings on imperialism, guns, and gays. Get it straight Tongue.

ChairmanSanchez, you moved from Florida to New York last Tuesday:

ChairmanSanchez

You are therefore blocked from changing regions again until April 12, 2015.  You remain registered in New York, but your party change is noted.
Sorry, it has been a while since I was really active in Atlasia. I volunteered for a trial that wrapped up quickly. I'm gonna miss the Dirty South.

Like most journalists, they only have a bias against those already in office. As advances in transportation have made DC less insulated, journalists are no longer part of the "game." As such, they try and preserve their influence by self righteously rooting for the underdog.

Except for the fact that they're in the tank for Turtle Face.
...because the President is against Tutle Face. Therefore, Turtle Face is what Obama was to Bush circa 2007.

He shouldn't have been the nominee in 2012, but he wasn't a bad Congressman.

Bush invaded Iraq. Palin resigned as Governor and has made millions by saying what everybody who listens to her already thinks. Clearly Palin is the greater mind of the two.

Everyone is having bad psychiatric episodes, so I might as well tell my latest story. I have been having panic attacks that have been crippling. They usually include severe anxiety followed by a dizzy feeling or even flashbacks that really shatter my nerves and change my emotions for hours on end. I have missed some school over it, but I have been forcing myself to go and work my way through them. I am not on any medications, and I donít think this is a problem that is severe enough to require them, but I am seeing my therapist tomorrow. I blame the TM; it has worked wonders but I have halted myself from further meditation until I figure things out.
   
To make it worse, one of my "friends" is this girl who I have on again/off again feelings who likes to rip on everyone and everything. I can dish it and I can take it, and I enjoy our back and forth, but recently she blew up on me publically when I stated that she was making fun of another girl who committed suicide. "If you knew me at all, you'd know I'd never make fun of something like that" which seemed to imply her own past. That really set me off, as she doesn't seem to be aware of the pain she has caused several other people (not myself, as I know I am way out of her league and don't seriously entertain any hopes) including a friend of mine who everybody thought she was dating, though she didn't consider it that way. I usually encounter her before or shortly after these incidents, and our friendship has been cratered in the last few weeks. She doesn't seem to be interested in repairing it, and rejection is one of the things I handle the worst.

Just got polled by The Tarrance Group (a Scott internal). Most of the questions focused on Bill Hager/David Silvers and if I will vote for Scott, with no mention of Crist.

As Snowstalker never explitly renounced his Atlasian citizenship in the register thread, I can only vote Guilty.

Using the Justice Department to force states (on shady grounds) to redraw Congressional districts of top Republican leaders.

That, or having a booze fueled romp with Kay Hagen Tongue.
