  1. Why am I not surprised? But the comments are hilarious.... The best choke that didn't take place on the field in Dallas..
  2. Ted Cruz Joins the Idiocy Parade

    What is your response to this statement: “Here is the simple and undeniable fact – the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” he said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that evening. True or false?
  3. designing and building your own house

    I've had 2 houses built and enjoyed every minute of it except not being around when the actual construction was happening. Pored over plans and designs until we found the one we liked, or came very close, gave it to my brother in California who is an architect and an engineer and let him make the changes we wanted. We had the property already, so we simply bid out the construction to several reputable builders in the area. Not accepting the low bid and not going with the high bid either, we interviewed a couple builders who came in at the mid-point and went from there. I won't get into system specifics and design thoughts simply because it's all a matter of preference, choice and money. I will simply say this- if you cannot be there for every step of the construction, you may want to consider having someone there for every step of the construction. Also get a decent warranty period from the builder. I did something completely out of the ordinary as well- got a cash bond from the builder ($10k) that I held for the entire warranty period of the house (1 year after move-in) in case he filed bankruptcy or otherwise dispatched himself after the house was completed and I had to make repairs due to workmanship issues.

    I found this place in Pakistan you can use as a starting point.... Belonged to some guy named Osama or something like that.
  5. Ted Cruz Joins the Idiocy Parade

    Just when you thought Donald Trump could not possibly make up any more lies..... When you thought Ben Carson couldn't be any less of a candidate or "medical professional"........ Ted Cruz steps right up... “Here is the simple and undeniable fact – the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats,” he said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that evening. “There is a reason why for years the Democrats have been viewed as soft on crime,” Cruz continued. "They go in and appoint to the bench judges who release violent criminals. “They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons,” the 2016 GOP presidential candidate added. "Why? “The Democrats know that convicted felons tend to vote Democrat. The media never reports on any of that. [It] doesn’t want to admit any of that.” Cruz then argued that the mainstream media often tries linking violent crime with the GOP, even when such ties are nonexistent. _________________________________________________ Okay, all you GOP faithful, go ahead and start tap dancing your defense of this moron.......  
  6. Did Anybody See Travis Kelce Dance?

    If Stephen A. Smith isn't intentionally racist, he might be the dumbest SOB to ever get a job in journalism. 
  7. Did Anybody See Travis Kelce Dance?

    Nothing "subconscious" about it. It's so fugging obvious Helen Keller could spot it. 
  8. Did Anybody See Travis Kelce Dance?

    This. All day.... this. 
  9. Hillary CliNtoN

    Depends on who you listen to. Some think Woodrow Wilson started our slide into hell...... oops... guess I'm not supposed to go there.....

    Does anyone really know how much hardware and weaponry has been left all over the ME by all the different tribes, clans, armies, rebel groups and whoever else we've been providing since the 1980's? So, in that sense, we've been arming DAESH for the better part of 35 years....  
  11. Does anyone have any advice for a future teacher

    The really cool thing about teaching history is you can walk damn near everything forward and apply it to what's going on the world today. Even on a more national level if you're teaching US History. I was awarded a history degree from Auburn University when I was in the Navy, they were great at matriculating my experience, other degrees and Navy education (War College, etc.) to get me a degree with but a few classes. Was my favorite study.

    The Viet Cong got their hands on American made weaponry as well. Mostly from 1968-1973. The Iranians used weapons we sold them against oil tankers transiting the Persian Gulf and during the Iran-Iraq War from 1987-1989. The Iraqis used information, technology and software sold to them by the United States during Saddam Hussein's reign. Ronald Reagan gave guns to the Iranians- specifically, The Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (sound familiar?) and fund the Contras when Congress outlawed funding the Nicaraguan rebels). Remember Iran-Contra? So acting like this is all new and nobody has ever done any such thing in the past and, "How could something like this even happen?" is all pretty lame and disingenuous.  And where did those F-16s come from that shot down a Russian military jet a couple weeks ago?
  13. Finnegan will start off as a nickel CB

    Over/under for the number of penalty flags he draws: 2
  14. Active shooter at Planned Parenthood in Colorado

    This just in: Donald Trump claims there were thousands of people cheering the suspect in the Planned Parenthood shooting as he was led to jail from the police car. Although no one can confirm, there are no reports and no witnesses, Trump still claims it happened.
  15. Sunday NFL game chatter....

    As bad as Pittsburgh's D is, I don't know why the refs had to turn their heads on about 5 obvious penalties on Seattle's D today.
