Re: SCOTUS is Finally Weighing In

With a majority in both houses (how the hell did that happen?) their next step will be to ram through a Constitutional amendment.

SCOTUS is Finally Weighing In

But it's scary, because we don't know if they understand "equal protection" as they start reviewing a case out of the 6th circus on gay marriage.

It's going to take a billion or so dollars to clean up their criminal activity, and instead of using the money they already have or "profits" to pay for it, they plan on getting mccory's lackies to approve rate hikes to their customers to pay for it. Duke CEO Lynn Good said Friday that Duk...

Re: Duke student: My porn career is 'freeing'

Bagley has a subscription to the hardcore porn site, FacialAbuse.com


That's sick. I try not to be too judgmental about other folk's kinks, but that specific site is quite.....horrific. Even worse than WND or theblaze, and it takes a lot to out-disgusting those two sites.

If I had the money he'd be building all my war gaming terrain. Or, a local fellow named Chris Hughes, who's God's gift to artistry around these parts.

Re: Those pesky Russians...

Let me look at my Pacific Theatre info, the Marines used mostly Springfields for their sniper work, but given how badly they were supplied the powers that be may have issued what was at hand to keep things moving.

Any other specifics on that Enfield, or only that Savage produced copies?

An Example Of Artistic Passion

Luca Iaconi-Stewart is making a paper airplane . Not especially noteworthy on the surface. But if to dig just a tiny bit deeper, it's quite amazing. He's making a 1:60 scale Boeing 777 out of manila folders. http://cdn0.sbnation.com/entry_photo_images/9737359/11781802755_be0bbd4ec1_b_verge_super_wid...
