Re: Hillary officially tossed her hat into the ring. It's over.

His decisions won't be based on common sense. His goal is to increase wealth inequality. Good for some, bad for most. Domestically, Trump has appointed a prominent climate skeptic, Myron Ebell, to lead his transition team at EPA. Ebell, who leads the Center for Energy and Environment at the right-le...

Re: The Conjuring 2...

I watched tc2 last week.... screamed like a little kid a few times, and then laughed. It was quite enjoyable. A nice follow-up.

It seemed like the ending had a nod towards the original Amityville Horror. But I liked it.

What's fascinating is that Bernie is left of Kucinich (who received around 4% of the vote in '08) yet he received 46% of the vote. I'm sure there are a number of factors that contributed to this, but damn that's impressive. He has influenced Hillary's platform (for the better I believe)..... More im...

I don't know. I like CTTE, and ABWH, and really enjoy Jon's voice. Over the past few months I'd want to hear some Yes at the oddest times, but wouldn't have any with me.

I figured I'd try to remedy that, and last night ran across OOS. It sounds intriguing

I have some bad news for you. Carson has no chance of getting the GOP nomination. There are too many things going against him.

Buddy Roemer was the last viable option, but he bucked the system, which instantly marginalized him.

Getting Warren for VP would likely lock up the whole thing this year, leaving the misogynistic Neo - Tards in the GOP foaming at the mouth in muted outrage. They should take some consolation in knowing that [at least] she's not black.

I love physical media, and fondly remember the hours I spent, as a youth, looking at the artwork and reading liner notes.
