@rzimdars: aye, the list so long... Rick -'please don't google my name'- Santorum. Michelle -'I'm not crazy, I'm just drawn that way'- Bachman. The pizza guy Cain , 'I can fix this country for only $9.99, plus tax, prices may vary'.
like I say, it's going to be hard to beat last time...but I do believe they just might be up to it. Trump. Yeah, just might be up to it.posted @ Saturday, December 20, 2014 - 11:43
they will be hard pressed to top the last show. But Trumps' a darn good start. I wonder if he'll find some secret info showing primary rival Cruz has no US birth certificate...oh wait. I know foreign born Ted - my dad's an illegal immigrant and that birth certificate thing, we were just kidding -Cruz will be a delight. Palin's waiting to see what it pays, but could come on strong. Perry might have sobered up...but he's still, well, Perry. And there's a sizable list of reasonably decent candidates that could move up with the proper coaching. (who remembers the classic 'I've hunted varmints')? Geez I can't wait.posted @ Saturday, December 20, 2014 - 09:58
It's hard to release a movie that theaters have announced they will not show...but, let's not miss a chance to somehow stretch this into an Obama bashing eh?
How about Fox take a stand and show the movie...rather than call others chicken from their own hen house.posted @ Saturday, December 20, 2014 - 09:10
my daughters' Christmas lists have matured so well. This year, they want lots of books. All kinds. They said, "Avid has them, or they can order them. Might cost a little more than Amazon, but we want to keep it local." I am so very proud!posted @ Saturday, December 20, 2014 - 09:02
Geez marshalld...could not have said it better. Agree almost word for word.
course I'd vote for her if the other choice was one of the bat crazies. And I'd have to choose her in the primaries over an unknown that might lose to such.
curious if Warren or Sanders run what sort of support they could muster.
me, I'd strongly consider Bush, Rubio, or Christie over Clinton...this far out that is.posted @ Wednesday, December 17, 2014 - 08:15

"..we need to “understand” our enemy and even have “empathy” for them..."
would seem a no-brainer 1st step to winning ANY war. Understand them. Have empathy with them.
except Cal, the phrase is 'empathy WITH them'...perhaps you are confused of the difference between empathy and sympathy? Or trying to confuse?

what you're not saying, is all this is a result of the widening wealth gap. So much cash they don't know what to do with it. Dwindling consumer demand from the dwindling middle class.
the crash wasn't subprimes, wasn't caused by the poor as reported by Fox and still repeated...it was gas hitting over $4 overnight on wall st speculators, record after record exxon profits at the expense of would be consumers and mortgage payers. Derivative markets collapsing. Dominos falling.
now the uber wealthy saudis are dropping oil prices to 1 - b-slap Russia, 2 - end US fracking, and 3 - end races to alternative energies. We'll have a little extra money for Xmas, and then the dominos will fall again.
Corporations sitting on all this money...PROOF that tax breaks, lower regulations don't create jobs - consumer demand does.posted @ Friday, December 12, 2014 - 08:11
aye, what's that smell?
a whole lot of false premise blown into false conclusion...
Aren't these the same people who consistently scream that the media is liberal too? Despite Fox being largest, despite our own Morris News Agency. Despite logic and reality, just repeat it over and over and over....
As a recent grad of UGA, I can assure you the majority of my professors were not liberal. That is, of the scant few who let their politics show at all.
I think what the author was trying to grasp - that education...especially higher education...has a salving effect on the ignorance of false conservatism.posted @ Friday, December 12, 2014 - 07:56
why would they be upset? "Eat more kale" automatically causes the imprinted mind to recall "eat more chicken" which is what they want right?
well..unless it's some weird hippy Vermont imprint of "eat more hormones laced with antibiotics thrown into a free radical trans fat then served on a flour bleached of all nutrient and sided with a syrup solution tweaked in the laboratories to be 'sweeter'". I could see that being a problem to them
...or for that matter, people caring about what they eat. That would certainly be a problem for Chic-parts- made-to-look-like-filet.posted @ Friday, December 12, 2014 - 07:24

I love Stoessel's ability to take false premises, repeat them as accepted fact, then run into left field.
Fossil fuels have been good? Wow, brilliant perception!
Notice the NO mention of how we could do better. How we can land a ship on an asteroid, but alternative energies...just too hard. Commentary brought to you by guys with vested interest in oil money.
Only an idiot would say 'the fossil is the future'.

however, in sports and elections, you would bet on what you think is going to happen vs what you want to happen. And that bet would be based upon an analysis of those polls, which ones have good history and accuracy, etc.
a bet is a prediction...a poll is a preference.
I prefer Ark would beat Missouri...but I wouldn't bet on it.posted @ Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - 07:07

and this is different than other celebrities how? It's not. It's more than career speaker Sarah Palin gets, or Ann Coulter who reportedly makes 90% of her income from speaking engagements. It's a market thing.
it's called "framing"...take the common event and act like it's uncommon. Throw in repeated buzz-words to attach to the non-event and have a dozen talking heads use the same words over the next week until simple minds associate the person with the word.
then work it so your guy can do it...because he doesn't pretend to be populist.
I don't think 'imperiousness' is an actual word.
