Guessing he won't sue the chick because she has more awful things about him to release. He will pay her off - he already said that he wishes that he had already. She will be made moderately wealthy. He is rich enough that it doesn't matter whether he sells the Clippers or not. He bought it for $12M, supposedly worth over $500M now. He doesn't need the money. He could just let the league burn it all down just to spite everyone.

In DC not all that long ago there was a shooting at the National Zoo. It was reported as a total surprise, everyone was absolutely unable to explain why there would be a shooting at the zoo, totally random. Turns out in reporting today that it was African American Family day at the zoo that day (which sounds racist to me) and that DC cops were on heightened alert because of that (again, racist) and that there was some foreknowledge that something would happen and they are saying the shooter was a 14 year old boy. Sounds like DC needs to make it illegal for 14 year olds to have guns.

JFK's grandson Jack Schlossberg this weekend handed a prestigious award to Lauren Bush Lauren on behalf of her grandfather, 89-year-old former President George H.W. Bush. Bush was given the 2014 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award during a ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum in Boston.

Bush was being recognized for the political courage he showed when he agreed to a 1990 budget compromise that jeopardized his re-election bid by violating his 1988 campaign promise not to raise taxes.

Former Bush aides and members of the Kennedy family came together to celebrate the former president's willingness to buck party orthodoxy.

'George Bush did the right thing for the country, and it's nice to see people are beginning to appreciate it,' John H. Sununu, who was Bush’s chief of staff, said at the ceremony.

And since you are also required to sign and swear that you are not a straw purchaser - i.e., that you are not purchasing a firearm for someone else - it doesn't seem that there would be a legal way for someone under 18 to own a firearm.

I agree with this 100%.  Scott had a chance to tell the race hustlers to STFU and let the system work like it has for decades but he blinked and declined to take a principled stand; and the result turned out to be exactly the same except it cost more money.  Crist is nothing but human garbage but Scott has opened the door for him by being wobbly on that issue.

90 And since you are also required to sign and swear that you are not a straw purchaser - i.e., that you are not purchasing a firearm for someone else - it doesn't seem that there would be a legal way for someone under 18 to own a firearm. No, you've always been able to buy guns as presents for others. It's not that you're "not purchasing a firearm for someone else" it's that your'e not purchasing a firearm for someone legally restricted from owning one. If your state says, "Yeah, 8 year olds can own rifles" then you (being over 1 can purchase a rifle and give it as a gift to your 8 year old sibling/cousin/whatever. It gets more complicated than that when gifting over state lines, but inside a given state, it's usually completely kosher. And most of my friends whose dad's hunted had their first rifles by the time they were 12. I'm not sure if that's the bottom legal age in TX for owning a rifle or not, though.

120 Bush was being recognized for the political courage he showed when he agreed to a 1990 budget compromise that jeopardized his re-election bid by violating his 1988 campaign promise not to raise taxes. Former Bush aides and members of the Kennedy family came together to celebrate the former president's willingness to buck party orthodoxy. 'George Bush did the right thing for the country, and it's nice to see people are beginning to appreciate it,' John H. Sununu, who was Bush’s chief of staff, said at the ceremony. DailyMail Big tent! Posted by: Laurie David's Cervix at May 05, 2014 09:08 AM (kdS6q) It was that incident that has so badly fucked up the nation. That was a pivot point in history. It was the point at which George HW Bush decided to throw the nation over to the Democrats. That incident got Clinton Elected.

Or make it even easier for members of Congress to live in their districts.  Do away with their need to go to DC.  Tele-commute from their district office and they meet in a virtual Congress online. 

Save all that money on buildings for Reps and Senators, turn them into hotels.  By adopting tele-commute it also makes it far harder to kill off that legislative body.  And can also reduce the salary of each elected official.  And while at it, change that law that limits the House to 435 members, can double the number without costing more to pay and house more in DC.

I know, because when TX redistricted a few years ago, Joe Barton had to decide which house he'd list as his primary residence. It didn't matter originally, because they had both been in his district. One of the redistricting plans, though, would have put one in a different district. So he had to choose which one would be his primary residence- cause you can only run in your own district.

And Shirley Muldowney was a fast woman. They interviewed her by phone a couple of weeks ago at the drag races. She still sounds like she could be competitive. I also "made" my little G'D'ette watch NASCAR qualifying Saturday. Danica Patrick was in the pack. I told her, "You never know, that could be you in ten years."

162 59 GHW lost because the MFM lied about the economy,not for breaking the tax promise.Though it didn't help. Posted by: steevy at May 05, 2014 09:15 AM (zqvg6) Both. Either thing being different would have changed the outcome. George Bush could not call Bill Clinton a liar. That was the single biggest weapon that George Bush could have used against Bill Clinton because Bill Clinton was a pathological liar and simply couldn't tell the truth. Bush could have hammered on the fact that Clinton was a habitual liar and that Clinton lies all the time, and that he is therefore completely untrustworthy. But Bush could not do this because the very instant he made a statement referring to Clinton's utter lack of honesty, the ENTIRE MEDIA AIR-FORCE would have trotted out his "Read My Lips.... NO NEW TAXES!" Lie, and beaten him to death with it. Breaking that Pledge cost him the election. It removed the "Character" issue from the debate, and "Character" was Clinton's greatest vulnerability.

169 You definitely should not say anything on social media. Been trying to convince a couple of twenty somethings of this salient fact and they just give me the "You are out of your mind" look. They do not seem to understand that once it's on Facebook or Twitter or even a text, it is out there for good. I know an IT recruiter who does the following first thing when she gets your resume: 1. Searches Google to see what your name produces. 2. Searches FB If she sees anything controversial, your resume is tossed, because as she explains it, her job is to take a stack of resumes 3 inches thick and pick out 5-10 of them for consideration. Posted by: Sherry McEvil, We Be Bossy at May 05, 2014 09:38 AM (kXoT0) When I was last looking for work, I received a lot of suspicion because I have no social media or internet presence in my RL name. Whenever I was asked why, I replied for exactly the reason why they were asking. My life is not my employer's business. I still cannot get believe that any recruiter or employer would think it was just peachy to make people log into their FB accounts during an interview. I mean, I do get wanting to get around privacy settings, but my God. I am very happy indeed to be a Luddite about all of that. My profession life and my personal life are separate and I hate with the burning white hot heat of 10,000 suns the attempts to destroy that line. By the by, expect a major increase in lawsuits about checking social media accounts in the course of verifying employment. There are all kinds of information that can be gleaned from FB in particular that a recruiter or employer could never, ever ask otherwise. The flip side of that is that, depending on the position being filled, it could be argued that failing to check social media is a dereliction of due diligence. The what is controversial is an excellent question indeed. Since we are rapidly approaching actual Unperson status for those on the Right, is simply having anything that identifies a person as a Republican sufficiently controversial? Oh great and mighty SMOD, I know we are unworthy of your mercy but I beseech thee none the less.

220 @AllenG. Huh, turns out I was slightly wrong. Apparently MO has no district restrictions at all. Granted with the exception of Districts 1 and 2 (which are basically the districts that cover the city and the county) our districts are geographically huge. This presents a theoretical problem to carpet bagging in that it'd be quite hard to say "Hi I live in St. James and I'll be running for congressman in Hannibal."

Keep thinking those thoughts that Slick and his apparatchiks wouldn't have achieved the same fucking results with or without Pat's comments, who again I can't stand.  It also opened the door for Perot as others have mentioned.  I wish we lived in an alternative universe where all those high approval ratings meant we never had to endure Slick for eight years.

Posted by: polynikes at May 05, 2014 09:55 AM (m2CN7) I simply do not comprehend your point. Clinton was and is a pathological liar. It would seem to me that it ought to be politics 101 to point out the fact that Clinton was a bald face and perpetual liar. Anyone running for office against Bill Clinton should have thrown the "LIAR!" card down on the table at first opportunity. George HW Bush could not do so because he gave up that card by doing an incredibly incompetent budget deal with the Democrats. I remember screaming at the radio when he did it, and I said at the time that it will achieve no benefit at all, and will simply empower the Democrats to call him a liar during the next election. I recognized instantly that it was about the worst political blunder any man could make.

231 Yeah, that part is not okay. I actually don't have a problem with them looking at your FB page, or LinkedIn profile. I'm a little dubious about them looking at your twitter feed. I absolutely do not think they should be able to look at your private stuff- if I've got it behind security settings so it's not public, then *it's not public.* Racist screeds all over my main FB page? Yeah, don't hire me. Anything in my "by invitation only" (or whatever it's called) stuff? No, I went to some lengths to make that private. Posted by: AllenG (DedicatedTenther) Ah, F It. at May 05, 2014 09:58 AM (PYAXX) If you have any public presence, then that is public and fair game. But anything private? Nope. LinkedIn was intended to be a professional networking site so it made perfect sense to check LinkedIn because that was the entire freaking point of it. Now, it's all oh you know him and he know her and you're linked to that and I just don't know about that. My intense dislike of all of this is linked to my virulent loathing of the politicization of everything. My eye got all twitchy over the weekend reading the liberals eat at Chipolte and conservatives eat at Cracker Barrel article. Ignoring that this probably says more about geographical sorting than anything else, what the hell does where I eat have to per se be a statement of political orientation? My adoration of Chick Fil A existed before the whole Hate Shake ordeal. I love Chipolte. I enjoy going to Cracker Barrel. I prefer Fresh Market to Whole Foods because its not quite as expensive and holy crap I will happily mash my face into a dish of the Fresh Market potato salad. I like Trader Joe's because I'm a cheap foodie and there's no Wegmans by me (drat you to heck you prancey Wegmans having bitches). None of that, not a single bit of that, has anything to do with politics. It has to do with nummy nummy food and where I like to obtain it. That's it. That's all it is. I am sick (and tired) of people demanding that my entire life be political. How about we say no to that.

241 "Benghazi" What immediately comes to mind? And what doesn't. "The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard." Taken by W. Somerset Maugham (1944) from a verse in the Katha-Upanishad. I found a soldier's poem this morning. poems from US Veterans @ Veterans Today http://tinyurl.com/p2ta7qv On Solitude. Ultimately, that unites us. To Paul Newell, I say, the Divine Spark. God bless him and all on the razor's edge. == Soldiers Retreat (Aug. 200 By Paul Newell Yea though I Travel to the Solitude of my Being I am a Soldier. I have soldiered diligently. I have soldiered honorably. Though I have traveled the inroads of war and the back alleys of unknown battles, diligently and honorably, I am not with out flaw or fail. Should you cast subjection upon me, should you also dwell in a round house made of stone? A soldier’s life is but a life of trust. Trust in the structure of command. It is for this trust that a soldier will obey a command. This trust that supports the belief in superior knowledge. This trust supports the belief that superior knowledge is necessarily educated for maximum favorable results. Under trial and tribulation will a soldier maintain security to their last living breath: will a soldier stand by on their watch. All is pending and based on this living breathing trust. In the end for some, this trust will only lead to certain death and the most tragic events witnessed or executed. For others this trust will lead to a shattered soul that will long for healing the way parched sand is puckered to kiss the preceding rain. If ever there has been a need to heal the soul it is now. Now that the trust has been breached the seal of worthiness is gone. (“The Worthiness of My Trust”) Where shall I go now? Where shall I seal my trust now? My duties fulfilled, my tours complete. What have you for this battle weary Soldier and broken Soul now? I see not a sturdy post to lean upon nor an inviting seat to sit upon. For I have been shattered to my core. My energies depleted. I seek refuge from my storm. Does the earth become my bride, if I should be striped of all, but pride? No I am free to walk anywhere. I am free to speak my mind. Therefore I shall travel the road of solitude to the center of my own being. It is there within my being that I will seek the new and real trust. Trust in myself and trust in the being of my solitude. For the trust that I have given others is the trust that I shall now afford myself. I shall seek within to find the structured faith that is the seal of worthiness It is deliverance that I need. Yet patience that I will have to accept. Walking the path of solitude is the most honorable way to meet yourself in the truest of spirit. It is at the center of solitude where I will find safe passage. And from the center that I shall be protected on all fronts. And it is there at that center that I shall conduct all measures and matters pertaining to the well being of my existence. I must make this journey for the sake of my sanity. Also for those whom I love I must seek the ability to afford them the same dignity with which I left them. This is not an easy road I seek but a necessary path of healing rite. For it is a peculiarity of man that he can better endure almost any other condition than that of solitude. I am a prisoner of wars byproduct. Do not forget me. I shall not wane:, steadfast is how I shall remain. I will wait – wait on the edge for a closer glance at freedom. Nurtured Solitude is a key component on the road of recovery. A man who goes to war, shall enter upon Gods gate first. You are blessed by all.

His counterpart at CBS, news division president David Rhodes, is the brother of Benjamin Rhodes, a key foreign-policy specialist.

257 http://tinyurl.com/puxclwa Read by Ammon Bundy at the Clark County Sheriff Precinct, May 2, 2014 A few weeks ago, our community was in a state of innocence and naivety. We felt safe and mostly kept to ourselves. We thought the world’s problems would only affect us through television, and could be shut off with the push of a button. Our innocence has left us now, we have experienced first-hand the breath of force upon our necks. We have gasped in desperation as our lives and agency were threatened. Our cries have been ignored by our guardians in the next room. We faced a choice-either lie down and submit helplessly in defeat, or bite, scratch, and fight until help would come. We are eternally and profoundly grateful for the many heroic neighbors who heard our desperate cries and crashed through the windows to rescue. We additionally thank the thousands that came from every States in this great nation, and stood in front of raised guns in our defense, and for the hope that those same guns would never come to their doors and their families. -------- It is time to understand right, stand for what’s right, and do whatever it takes to make it right. We must continue the vision of our Founding Fathers in preserving the freedoms of the American people and the sovereign rights of the States. A nation can never abandon its fate to an authority it cannot control. Men must decide if their rights and freedoms are God-granted or are assigned by a federal government. We believe in the rule of laws and sustain a limited government. May God bless us to protect this sacred instrument.

Bush was popular for having presided over the Gulf War, and he was riding a wave of popularity at the time. I suspect this is the reason he thought he could get away with such a bone head move as breaking his solemn word to get a budget deal with Democrats. Another thing about this that made me so furious was that George Bush had seen Reagan get fucked over by the Democrats so many times, and he thought they weren't going to fuck him over too? Weapons grade naivete.

Posted by: Sherry McEvil, We Be Bossy at May 05, 2014 10:18 AM (kXoT0) Sorry, I was unclear, I didn't mean to imply that she made people log into their FB pages. I was simply segueing from her checking FB pages to other people asking potential employees to do that. I did not mean that she did that. I am a tiny bit torn about a company saying hey we monitor FB for what you say about us and that can get you fired because a. it's disclosed to the employee and if you don't like that, don't work there, b. a company has every right to protect its reputation and c. posting confidential info should be grounds for instant termination. But. But the only way to know your employee is doing that it is to know the FB identity of each of your employees and then have someone monitoring those feeds. That's more than a bit creepy. Not to mention potential liability when someone doesn't get a promotion and she claims its because you just saw her squealing on FB about being preggers. I don't think there is a way to square that circle. My old employers made everyone sign a non-disparagement agreement and I refused to sign initially. When I got hauled in about how dare I not sign it, I pointed out that the language was such that it covered my bitching about a bad day at work to my mom on the phone and that I reserved all rights to bitch about a bad day at work to my mom. Once I made that point, I signed.

Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) at May 05, 2014 09:38 AM (/FZPk) Maybe people cut British rockers some slack? The Rolling Stones have gotten away with songs like "Some Girls" for decades now. Stations still play "Brown Sugar" on the radio without apology. The same stations that blast out "Brown Sugar" will muffle the word "faggot" in the Dire Straits song. Also recall that Anita Russell billboard used to advertise the album "Black and Blue" (she's bruised and bound S & M style, yet smiles and says, "I'm black and blue all over from the Rolling Stones." Such marketing is unthinkable in the current climate of opinion). Maybe if you're down with the sexual revolution you get a pass from the PC brownshirts? Mick was a big Thatcherite, too. You'd think he would catch a lot more flack than he does. Is he protected by the "power of cool" or something? Maybe foreigners are forgiven eccentricities?

The changed lines "So go and tell your friends That I'm obsessive and crazy That's fine, you won't mind If I say and by the way" The last line of this stanza originally said and was released for weeks on the radio as "If I tell all your friends your gay". The gay mafia had a fit, the radio stations threatened the song's air play, blurred it out, and finally Swift "apologized" if she caused any "hurt" . Because the line somehow denigrated gay boys.

Company officials have said Texas is on their list of potential facilities location sites. Late last year, the company told its more than 2,700 employees in the San Francisco Bay area that they might be transferred to less expensive operations in Denver or in Texas, The San Francisco Business Times has reported. Schwab is already building a $230 million office campus in suburban Denver where it has consolidated 2,000 workers. The company also has a large office center in suburban Austin which has been growing.

374 To 344--Posted by: BackwardsBoy, who did not vote for this shit at May 05, 2014 11:23 AM Among entertainers, musicians seem to have more open right-wingers who don't suffer professionally for it. I'm thinking of Nugent, Jeff "skunk" Baxter, even Dave Mustaine, but also of bands like Kiss. They have an unexpected patriotic streak. They celebrate living in the USA. I'm not saying they form a majority or anything, but these types seem to be more numerous and prominent among the musical crowd than among actors or writers. Maybe with musicians people forgive a lot more??

375 I loved the Chi-Chi's Twice-Grilled Barbecue Burrito.  Came out on the sizzling plate.

Kicked ass.

Cried when Chi-Chi's closed.  But On The Border helped make up for it.

We just found an awesome restaurant (in Canada!) owned by a sweet Mexican lady.  Amazing food.  So we're good now.

But damn if I couldn't go for one of those burritos.

380 I think Hockey is interesting no matter who plays. The action is non-stop and exciting. It is fun to watch how skillful these guys really are. MLB? Boring, even if your team is playing. NBA? Pretty close to unwatchable. NFL? Being pussified very quickly, and at this rate it might not even be around in 10 years.

382 Musicians and novel authors write their own stuff. Own their own stuff. More direct relationship with fans. Actors can be blackballed in a way a musician (at least one with a hit or two under their belt) can't. People have to agree to work with Mel Gibson on a movie. Nobody has to agree with Kiss to allow them to sing songs that Kiss wrote and own. Orson Scott Card got blackballed from writing comics -- where he had to work with a small team of artists. But they can't blackball him from writing books, or selling the hits he's already written.
