I understand the concerns by the theater chains about violence, but this isn't Citizen Kane, just s stupid comedy. Sony should just release it in the usual streaming/pay-per-view channels and leave any potential terrorists with hundreds of [more]

Re: Apparently not all black lives matter

Wow, Bednarski, 23 recommendations for you and 97 for those mocking you, in your own little clubhouse. Maybe you should take this as a sign to just think about what you post next time?

Re: Jim Wright takes no prisoners

McCain is nothing but a political hack of the worst kind. He has been for, and against, everything. He stands for nothing but saying whatever he thinks will get him re-elected. At least Romney was honest enough to voice his disdain for the 47% out [more]

Re: Wal-Mart ordered to pay $188MM

Wal Mart had profits of $17 billion last year. This is a step in the right direction, but appallingly little punishment. Justice would have been $18.8 billion, divided among all current workers for punitive damages. That might be enough to change how [more]

Re: Screw the FSM

As was noted in the comments, the ASL interpreter really brought the house down. She took a hysterical bit by Inman and made me ache with laughter by the time I was done.

Re: tax question

That was the way it was when I worked at the IRS about 8 years ago. A student away at college, who doesn't earn more than X, is a dependent if they are a full-time college student (defined as a student who takes X hours or more). This would be a [more]

Re: Benjamin Watson on Ferguson

He made a lot of good points, but the solution to our problems in a society awash with religion is not more religion. The glurge in the final paragraph weakens the impact of the wisdom in the earlier paragraphs.
