  1. I know we usually talk about how obnoxious and illogical liberals can be, but this time they're making me seriously angry because they are directly trying to destroy my livelihood. I work at an architectural firm who specializes in houses on Nantucket, serving a client base that is largely comprised of millionaires. We've had to lay off more than half our employees due to the lack of work, and now they're going to greatly reduce the disposable income of our clients and more or less completely starve us of any work. Same goes for all the contractors and other trades that work in the high-end re
  2. The Eagles came away from the draft pretty well on paper. They got the #2 WR in Maclin (thanks to Al Davis being a moron- more on that in a moment), which adds another speedy playmaker/kick returner to complement Jackson. LeSean McCoy was also a steal of a pick in the 2nd round, a quality RB to share the load with Westbrook. They also got a TE in Ingram, who fell far further than anyone expected. My favorite moment was when they picked up Hobbs from NE for 2 5th round picks (the Eagles had 6 of them at the time...), which gives them an extra potential starting CB if Brown gets his way, whinin
  3. Thank you, that is the same thing I've been thinking about the music industry the whole time. Napster was started in 1999, iTunes in 2001. The music industry tried to fight the digitization of music rather than adapt to the changing market. In order to stop the rampant piracy that ensued, they were forced to start attacking their customers, which only became an ever-growing PR nightmare. The piracy was still immoral and illegal, yes, but I find it akin to a store leaving its back door open a night and then suing people for taking their stuff. The subsequent success of iTunes proves that pe

  5. I just love how liberals forget that Pelosi and Obama are different people in their hurry to get offended and play the race card. I'm willing to bet a decent amount of people outraged by this cartoon are the same ones who did things like compare Bush to Hitler.
  6. If I remember correctly, Google threatened to use anti-trust laws against Microsoft if they ended up working out an agreement to buy Yahoo. They all seem to think that the government is a tool to use to hamper their competition.
  7. I'm actually kind of happy that the Eagles didn't beat the Bengals. The Eagles problem since they went to the Super Bowl is that they are content being 8-8 almost playoff contenders. They always enter the year thinking they can be a legitimate playoff team but then can't put the pieces together. They certainly show flashes of excellence, a 38-3 drubbing of the lowly Rams and a 15-6 defensive domination of the Steelers, one of the best teams in the AFC. Then, in three different games they lose because they can't convert 3rd/4th and 1. This is the way it's been but the ownership has been too afr
  8. Paint drying is still more unpredictable than Andy Reid in short-yardage situations
  9. The Eagles are so predictable. They look good for a couple of games and everyone gets excited and then they just don't have enough for a tough divisional game. Andy and Donovan still, 10 years later, don't know how to run an effective two-minute drill. I also wish I had started keeping track of the number of times the Eagles have unsuccessfully run it straight up the middle on short-yardage downs this year. They've become so predictable and the rest of the NFC East has passed them by. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me 10 times in a row, I am just an idiot following the same playcall over and
  10. I apologize if I didn't make it clear- I meant that statement to be very facetious. I'm emphasizing the point that the government said $700 billion (an arbitrary number) and now they say "let's just throw in $50 billion more for automakers." There seems to be no end in sight for the Emergency Economic Insanity Bill of 2008
  11. Now they want to expand the bailout to the automakers http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/11/08/...in4585951.shtml What's an extra $50 billion between friends anyway?
  12. I watched the first 45 minutes and it seemed like the characters were just giving overdramatic monologues about all of the spoilers for the first book. Another thing I disliked was that none of the characters except Kahlan were how I pictured them from the book. Zedd especially seemed horribly miscast, he didn't have any of the eccentricity that made the character so entertaining in the novel. Why wasn't the first thing he said to Richard to ask him if he brought any food? They obviously aren't going to follow the novels closely at all, changing the characters and plot so significant
  13. On page 97 they have a list of the top ten videogame politicians. Number 9 is Andrew Ryan: "Can't quite swing your wacky new political paradigm in the real world? Go ahead and build your own little cutthroat free-market utopia to reign over-and demonstrate to everyone that Objectivism can do a heeluva lot more damage than turn anyone who reads Atlas Shrugged into a complete jackass for a month or two" I understand it's in a part of the magazine where they typically try to be humorous and ironic, but it is still sad that they used it to take a cheap shot at Objectivism.
  14. I wish Andy Reid knew how to throw a red flag. Buckhalter was clearly over the goal line in the overhead shot. Oh well, it'll probably be another 9-7 or 8-8 year for the Eagles. They can't do anything consistently. At least the Phils are doing well at the moment...
  15. Vote yes on Amendment 47! Amendment 47 prohibits the unions from forcing all workers to pay them dues. It's called the "right to work" amendment because it gives workers the ability to take or keep a job without being forced into a union. http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/Colo...itiative_(2008)
