Today in History: Ten Cent Beer Night

Forty-two years ago today, the Cleveland Indians decided to prop up attendance at one of their games against the Texas Rangers by offering 12-ounce cups of beer for ten cents. Fans were allowed to buy six beers per purchase, with no limit on the number of purchases per fan. The result was nearly as disastrous as the Indians were that season.

Check out the US Chemical Safety Board's YouTube channel

It's full of investigations of major industrial mishaps. Very informative, extremely well done. If this doesn't piss you off about the GOP, nothing will.

Post your derisive nickname for Trump!

Trump is a classic bully. And one of his favorite tactics is to screw with someone's name. So far we've heard Lying Ted, Crooked Hillary, and probably a few others I don't recall.

Two can play at that game.

Laugh of the day: Chuggo Poetry Reading!

Why doesn't the Burlington College website mention the college is closing?

Bernie needs to send a $27 tip to Ted Cruz

How do BOTH candidates miss their targets?

According to Nate Silver, Bernie's WV target was 17 delegates and Hillary's was 12.

According to Google, Bernie got 16 delegates in WV and Hillary 11.

Have you gotten the feeling Sanders' plan isn't actually meant to help the lower classes?

Anyone with a grain of brain has to know the people who are really going to get raked by Sanders' tax structure have the financial means to get the hell out of the United States, and this may be his ultimate goal.

Ammon Bundy intended occupation to end up in civil court

His lawyers in the 33-page motion say Bundy isn't an extremist or a member of any militia and doesn't hold anti-government views.

"Defendant Ammon Bundy organized his fellow citizens in protest of the expansive and unsupported interpretation of the Constitution that purports to allow the federal government to own and control more territory, and exercise jurisdiction over more land in the Western States, than the States themselves," lawyers Lissa Casey and Mike Arnold wrote in the motion.


Because everyone knows no one who attempts to overthrow the government all by his little lonesome has any anti-government views, right?
