#3256919 Brian Williams Out of Work, O'Reilly Lying and Still On the Job

Posted by cookinwithgas on Today, 04:45 PM

the point is that the right goes ballistic over stuff like this and sees it is it's opportunity to "even things out" but doesn't really care about the fact they are lied to all the time. The left leaning places like Mother Jones think that this makes no sense.

 

the formula for conservative success:

 

One Brian Williams lie repeated again and again > All of Fox News' lies the left already knows about and never really brings up anymore since it's expected

#3256585 RIP Leonard Nimoy

Posted by cookinwithgas on Today, 01:12 PM

I don't think people really understand the impact of the Spock character on our culture. In the 60's, he was the outsider, the alien, and could give voice to alternative points of view without freaking people out - the show could be a carefully disguised treatise on the Vietnam War or an attack on racism, but without that cool unemotional character providing clarity and insight the humans did not possess, Star Treks goals of portraying a more humanistic society probably would have failed, which is kind of ironic.

 

In a way, Leonard Nimoy was the archetype for the "Hollywood Liberal" - not the imaginary one dreamed up by the people that claim to hate Hollywood, but repost everything Chuck Norris or that girl from Clueless says, but the live and let live, deeply devout Jew with an appreciation for everyone and every viewpoint.

#3256461 FCC's "Net Neutrality" introduced to highly regulate the internet

Posted by cookinwithgas on Today, 11:54 AM

um that has nothing to do with this at all, but are you saying that the government should have the power to NOT let companies merge regardless of how they meet their requirements and responsibilities to do so? Is this something you believe in all the time, or only when you have to defend your indefensible position?

When wild dogs came out of nowhere and wanted to eat everyone and it was treated like a quick throwaway sequence, it became pretty clear that they are not going to run out of things to test the survivors for a while.

#3251688 DeAngelo Williams Memories

Posted by cookinwithgas on 23 February 2015 - 08:31 PM

I signed my wife and I up for his and Jonathans fan club and he called me to welcome us into the group. 45 minutes later I was telling my brother in law about the call and he said I was bullshitting him, just them DeAngelo called again

 

We did a flash mob dance with him , bowled, had a tailgate at training camp where I got to take his Segway for a spin, and several other events.

 

One thing I have not seen mentioned (ok I cant read every one of these posts!) is the fact that he took his own crusade against breast cancer and made it an NFL wide cause which was really impressive.

 

I can tell you that he was always terrific at these events, we also enjoyed hanging out with his family. I for one am really going to miss him.
