This is America's future, ladies and gentlemen.

No, this is an example of what the ancient Etruscans referred to as "video-editing."

Re: Plutocrats Against Democracy

You would probably be able to understand the importance of applying some regulation to election campaigns if you weren't so completely inundated with right wing echo chamber dogma. It has a tendancy to make normally rational people stupid. [more]

Roughly 200 million.

Re: Plutocrats Against Democracy

One answer is propaganda: tell voters, often and loudly, that taxing the rich and helping the poor will cause economic disaster, while cutting taxes on “job creators” will create prosperity for all. There’s a reason conservative faith in the [more]

Re: Living below your means

Mortgage paid off early through frugal living and extra payments.

Re: The Walking Dead - 10/19/14

That said, it's anyone's guess if eating a recently bitten person is deadly.

The question was raised in Season 1, I believe.

Re: How Not to be Poor

Teaching how not to be poor is how we taught how to stay warm while snow camping.

Re: Just when you're convinced Walmart...

I hate self-checkout.

Based on personal experience you're solidly in the majority, and I'm hoping it stays that way. As it stands, the vast majority of Walmart patrons continue to use the cashier lanes, meaning that those lanes are [more]
