Re: Windows 10 - Your Thoughts?

Ed Joseph - I have long since moved on almost exclusively (with one exception, mentioned later) using solid state hard drives (the significant improvement in speed/performance renders mechanical hard drives obsolete, IMO, and prices have been crashing over just the past few months). But I do know th...

Re: Oh Noes! Taylor Swift Weaponized By Democrats

If he was viewed as just being a total whackjob that nobody listened to, then why bother covering him at all? (and I'm talking about leading up to his oval office visit - obviously yesterday was newsworthy). Why was it necessary for the press to go after him relentlessly? Usually when someone says s...

Re: Election Day predictions thread

There seems to be very conflicting data out there on exactly who benefited politically from the Kavanaugh saga. I'm curious where you're finding the enthusiasm gap to be +10 democrat? Per an NPR poll last week, that number was +10 in July, but has since fallen to a mere +2 https://www.npr.org/2018/1...

Re: Oh Noes! Taylor Swift Weaponized By Democrats

Except that this isn't the first or even second time Kanye has received substantial press for his political statements outside of the Oval office - him saying slavery is a choice and saying the 13th Amendment should be abolished are a few instances that come to mind.

Re: Oh Noes! Taylor Swift Weaponized By Democrats

I have listened to a few conservative commentators today try to spell out what they thought Kanye was trying to say as if Kanye were in fact more articulate than he really was. He was far from articulate, and you'll get no argument from me on that point. That said, Jim Brown is hardly an A-list or e...

As it stands as of right now, the RCP lead for Democrats in the House is down to +5. Current projection is 204 Democrat to 199 Republican with 32 toss-ups. Of the 32 toss-ups where there is polling data, the score is 17 republicans to 13 democrats. That puts the race currently at 217-216 with 2 toss...

Re: Rand Paul Fears Someone Will Be Killed

But that's why I don't understand why the left is so feverishly bent on preventing the overturning of Roe v. Wade. With gun control being perhaps a close second, the abortion issue, and specifically Roe v. Wade, seems to be the biggest hot-button issue in this country today, and the mere thought of ...

Re: Rand Paul Fears Someone Will Be Killed

Roe vs. Wade has been overturned. Legal abortion is no longer available anywhere within The United States. So in your scenario, if and when the Supreme Court were to overturn Roe v. Wade, you're suggesting that all 50 states will pass laws banning abortion? Get real. A handful of states at most wou...

We're less than a month out so it is time for a predictions thread. I'm sticking by the various predictions I've made in here over the past half year. First, some analysis: Kavanaugh: I think the Kavanaugh fiasco has galvanized republicans more than it has democrats because democrats have been perpe...

Re: Another Case

In all seriousness though, courts have deemed trash to be abandoned property. Sounds like the "stolen" item was earmarked, per company policy, as "trash." Pettiness and grossness aside, I think the employee wins this one.

Perhaps Mr. Paul should be reminded someone already has been killed. Her name was Heather Heyer. She was from Charlottesville, Virginia. It happened in August of 2017. We were told there were very fine people on both sides of the incident. "Her name was Heather Heyer." Plagiarism. You're not gonna ...
