so has the expected wave of RW outrage over the president' pot quote not materialized because

they are in such disorder that they are polling it and trying to figure out how the whole thing fits into th general scheme of getting primaried by a libertarian nut that is for pot legalization AND eliminating the social safety net?

Did the prez. just throw another wedge between the gop factions?

misogyny and just not fucking getting it in all its glory

As a man these two things struck me this weekend as perfect examples of sexism and how the GOP is the dumbass party of it. Haley Barbour's reference to the "lady mayor" being the more benign but dead giveaway example. But the Texas GOP trying to call out Wendy Davis has got to go down in the history books. They are going to piss off some Texas women. This is about to be Clayton Williams redux. (Google him)

Well Kenneth Bae has confessed to serious crimes against N. Korea

the last period in country music worth a damn was the 70s texas "outlaw"

sound of Willie, Waylon, etc. And by etc. I mean "and the boys."

It has been pretty much watered down pop pabulum with fiddles and steel guitars ever since.

Putin is a thug but I wish his government the best of luck pulling off a safe winter olympics

However I have very little confidence they will. Russia has always, despite the advantages one would think an authoritarian system would have in the "law and order" department, not had the best track record of stopping radical fundie terrorists. The words "Russian anti-terrorist efforts" usually evoke the gassing of movie theatres and leveling Chechen cities in my mind - all the while the fundies continue their own deadly business.

What Happened to Alfred Wright? Strange death of a black man in East Texas

To be honest, the official story of irrational meth related behavior makes sense, but so do (unfortunately) more sinister racist theories.

Family wants answers in man's mysterious death in Texas

Around 6 p.m., Alfred Wright disappeared from where he was last seen alive. When his parents arrived about 20 minutes later, his truck was in the parking lot, but he was nowhere to be seen. His father asked the store clerk what happened. He says she told him that she was out having a smoke when Wright "all of a sudden put his cell phone in his sock and took off like the truck was going to blow up."

The clerk did not want to be interviewed on camera but did tell CNN that Wright "left on his own free will," a phrase she repeated several times.

The next day, his personal effects, including his watch and ID, turned up on a nearby ranch. Deputies searched the property with cadaver dogs. His family says it was told by the deputies that Wright's scent had "disappeared" at a nearby creek.


CNN report reveals that Alfred Wright's throat may have been slashed

Monday night on CNN's AC 360, new details were revealed about the disappearance and death of Alfred Wright.

The Jasper man was reported missing in Hemphill on November 7.

He was a 28-year-old husband and father.

His body was found nearly three weeks later, not by law enforcement, but by a family-organized search party.

Sabine County authorities gave up looking after three days.

Wright family attorney Ryan MacLeod said the CNN crew spent Christmas week in Jasper and Sabine counties conducting interviews.

MacLeod says the media are doing what law enforcement has not, and that's seeking answers.

MacLeod says Sabine County Sheriff Tom Maddox offered no comfort to the family, this despite the fact that Maddox's daughter and Wright had been friends.

MacLeod says Maddox blamed a drug overdose for Wright's disappearance before his body was even found.

Eventually the official autopsy from the medical examiner's office revealed that Wright likely died from a drug overdose.

An independent autopsy, sanctioned by the family, indicates foul play. It shows that Wright's throat appears to have been slashed, he was also missing two front teeth and an ear.

The official autopsy did not reveal those things, plus nothing has been released as to when the drugs got into Wright's system.

MacLeod says Sheriff Maddox has done nothing but lie to the Wrights.

MacLeod says the Sheriff had told the family that they were tracking Wright's whereabouts through his cell phone for two days, then on the third he claimed they didn't do that because AT&T did not allow them.

MacLeod calls that "nonsensical".

Sheriff Maddox would not give 12News a comment since the investigation is ongoing.

It is now in the hands of a Texas Ranger from Lufkin, and the FBI is helping with the case.

Our call to the Ranger was not returned.

OK Men this is my new year's message to you (complementing my post to the HoF group)

I think most of you (if not all) agree with the "radfems" on gender equality. I, like you, disagree with them (or at least how they express themselves) on some issues. porn is one of them. I get where they are coming from on how women are depicted in a lot of porn. But I recoil as I would from a snake at what often appears to be their call for censorship ( mainly, but not only because what little porn I watch would be banned by the right because of the gender mix of the participants.) What I have pledged to them is a more respectful discussion of that issue, but mainly a recognition of the true enemy - politicians who want to dictate women's medical decisions or my choice of partners. I let them know that I will continue to point out where I disagree with them, but in a more intellectual and respectful way - though I will ask them if they really want to agree with Falwell, etc. on porn. i just won't say 'hey, you are the same as Fallwell. Anyway, the pisseness will continue, but let us all try to recognize and fight the real enemy.,
