Ever live with someone that won't let you clean and loves clutter?

The Real Voice of Darth Vader...hilarious!

Shouldn't the nations of the Middle East, some with obscene amounts of wealth, put that wealth to...

use by ensuring that the Middle East is stabilized? I'm just saying. Before you fly luxury cars into London, how about using some of that money to alleviate the Syrian refugee crisis. How about working together to stabilize the region?



Dogs aren't very good at subtlety are they?

My humble suggestions on how to move forward in Syria

1. We should demand that Russia withdraw military support of Assad today or else face global sanctions on everything. Threaten to freeze their assets worldwide. We would need a global coalition to do this. Russia is aiding and abetting a mass murderer at this point.

2. Work with every Middle East leader to put pressure on Assad and donate money to help rebuild Syria and aid the refugees. I'm looking right at you Kuwait, kick in some money for the effort. You fucking owe us.

3. Work towards a cease fire and send in an international coalition to maintain the peace while the nation rebuilds.

4. The most important step of all is to employ all able body Syrians in the rebuilding of their nation. Pay them well to rebuild their war torn homes. This will promote immediate stability. Idle hands are the terrorists' workshop.

What truly, truly frightens me about the Republicans, and what should scare you as well.

One day, they will nominate someone for president, and we will all say, "man, this person makes Trump look good."

So, it looks like the year of redemption in sports.

First, Clemson. Now, NC. Take heed Indians and Falcons!

My crazy baseball prediction about Madison Baumgarner

The last five years of his career will not be as a pitcher, but as a DH.

This whole Russia/Trump thing is like a Coen Brothers movie.

It's one of the most common traits of their films;

What theme do the Coens know better than crime? Perhaps dark comedy? One integral theme interlocking film after film is crime, such as kidnapping, murder, ransoms, robbery, convicts, and conspiracy. From their bone-chilling debut “Blood Simple” to their recent ensemble epic “Hail, Caesar!”, kidnapping, blackmail, ransoms and crime gone wrong have been themes used for so many plotlines that it’s a wonder they haven’t been worn out on audiences.

The Coens experiment with styles, settings, characters and narratives, but their themes rarely drift from what they know: very messy, very convoluted, and very chaotically failed crime capers. I use the term “failed” in the way their characters fail, for although the perpetrator rarely gets away, their films (other than perhaps “The Ladykillers” and “Intolerable Cruelty”) never fail to hit their mark.
