  1. Adrian Peterson Put Into Imaginary Penalty Box for Child Abuse

    Think about this for a moment - in 1985, William "The Refrigerator" Perry debuted with the Chicago Bears as a Defensive Lineman. He was 6'2" tall and about 335 lbs. His size, a mere 30 years ago, was an anomaly - he was considered a physical monster. Today he might not be big enough to be a...
  2. An armed public is a free public, empowered.

    If the right to own a firearm is organic to being human, much as a heart or brain, or even hair or fingernails, then why don't we exit the womb conjoined symbiotically with a firearm? I understand the part about the right of the people to alter or abolish a government that has become...
  3. Too Big To Fail Part Two

    Yeah, that's what I meant.
  4. Too Big To Fail Part Two

    Well done with your homonyms, Shane.
  5. This is a Palestinian test

    On this we both agree.
  6. This is a Palestinian test

    No, it isn't. Israel has yet to assume the occupied territories as part of their national borders. They have yet to apply their rule of law to those territories and provide the services and constitutional protections that liberal first-world democracies live by. Residents of the occupied...
  7. This is a Palestinian test

    I can't accept the "two wrongs don't make a right" argument. What your country and my country did to the natives was beyond wrong but its done. Our western first-world liberal democratic values have evolved since then, thankfully. A big part of the reason the west supports Israel is because...
  8. The big plot to destroy America

    Only the day? You don't have enough time for that.
  9. Malaysia, again

    It doesn't do a damn thing to stop anything in Ukraine. If Putin came out this afternoon and said "yeah, we shot it down, so what?" the world would just shake their collective fingers and apply sanctions against a few senior Russian officials and oligarchs. Nothing will stop the natural gas...
  10. Your Unobtainium Car

    The 1961 220S that my dad had when I was 7 years old. Or my Grandad's old 1971 Buick Skylark two door that I remember from when I was even younger. Not any 220S or Skylark, it would have to be those specific ones.
  11. Obama's 300

    I thought this thread was going to be about a Chrysler on 24's
  12. It’s been one year, by Edward J. Snowden

    There is something regarding Snowden that I just can't wrap my head around. There seems to be an enormous amount of overlap between Americans who want to pillory Snowden as a traitor and Americans who staunchly defend their Second Amendment rights as a way to protect against government tyranny...
  13. Apparently their marriage wasn't "Nirvana"

    You mean two drugged-up, narcissistic rock stars couldn't make a marriage work? No fucking way.
  14. Sebastian Vettel

    Vettel has always been able to drive. This year we will learn if Vettel can race.
