Re: Dear Gov. Pence,

Indiana would be about as appealing as the deep south or midwest..

Hey, don't insult the midwest.

Republicans' private terror:

Insightful view of the modern GOP:

It’s the party of Joe Wilson, the South Carolina congressman who shouted “You lie!” at President Obama during a 2009 speech, and of former Texas governor Rick Perry, who peppers his speeches with [more]

Re: Blurred Lines

I don't think this case sets any precedent. George Harrison famously lost a lawsuit because "My Sweet Lord" sounded like "He's So Fine".

In this case, the riff at the beginning is a pretty clear knock-off of the Marvin [more]

Re: The Do Nothing, Socialist, Imperial President

First, congratulations on your honeymoon--assuming it means you are recently married.

It is $1.06 to buy a Euro, 94 Euro cents to buy a dollar, but that still means that Europe is as cheap as it has been since about 2002.

In 2002, [more]

Re: At least they're not racist

In case you didn't pick up my sarcasm, I do want to point out that actually being racist is no longer racist. Pointing out racism is now considered racist.

These are the Tea Party rules of polite society. Learn them.

Are prices bad enough to cause people to cancel contracts and pay penalties?

Whether they are letting the rigs run to the end of term or cancelling early, there is no doubt that the rig count is falling like a rock.

Gay Marriage Question

My wife and I are completely in favor of legalizing gay marriage. We live in France, where it is already legal, but we are also Americans, where we think it should be legal in all 50 states.

That said, we aren't entirely comfortable [more]

I saw an interview with T. Boone Pickens a few months ago. He said the way to gage when oil price had hit bottom was to watch the rig count. He said when it gets down where it was at the bottom in 2009, we'd likely be close to the bottom for this [more]

Re: Palin is RIGHT: Restrict Islamic Expression

Jedi,

It's a good link to explain "Laicite."
