GOP Prepares For Inaugural Festivities

Can't really think of an appropriate subject line


You can't hide a CreekDog thread in Meta

People, what is the point to hiding a CreekDog Meta thread?

Where on earth is he supposed to bemoan that?

Calif. federal judge rejects 'birther' challenge to Obama's election

Source: Honolulu Star Advertiser

SACRAMENTO, Calif. A federal judge in Sacramento has rejected a challenge by so-called "birthers" seeking to halt the counting of Electoral College votes for President Barack Obama.

U.S. District Court Judge Morrison C. England on Thursday rejected a petition for a temporary restraining order filed by Orly Taitz, an attorney who has lost challenges in several states seeking to overturn Obama's election.

For all those who were sweating bullets over this case.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Seems to be a quote - f words are allowed - as well as dissenting opinions

Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: If the F bomb is reason to hide a post, then that's news to me. I see it all the fucking time.

Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Really? You can't handle "the F*word"? There's no point in being such a delicate flower. This site is not for small children.

Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: The F-word is quite appropriate when it refers to Ron Paul!

Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given

On Netflix: The Van


Danny DeVito cameos in this, uh, movie with a Danny DeVito cameo in it.

Bobby rode the short bus to school, but now that he's graduated, how will he get around?

Will buying a tricked out Dodge van make Bobby a cooler person? Who knows. But will watching this movie make you a cooler person? Now that's a tough one. If, for example, you had no talent and a time machine, you might be able to go back to 1977 and write, produce, direct and star in just about anything better than this. And that would make you pretty cool.

Date rape, drinking and driving, kidnapping and racial stereotypes are all part of the fun to be had while you consider that maybe having 35 cents-per-gallon gasoline was not without its cultural downside. I mean what could be better than having a waterbed and a van, unless its having a waterbed IN your van! And, oh yeah, an eight track!

Return to the days when glorious herds of wild shag were hunted to extinction by the carpet industry and behold the wisdom of swigging from a two gallon bottle of Gallo red while careening down the road surrounded by white tuck and roll upholstery.

But will our hero get the girl. Well, any girl for that matter. The law of averages being what it is, it's safer than any bet Danny DeVito is taking at the car wash counter.

Eventually Bobby learns that some girls want you to "talk to them and stuff" before they will jump in the back of the van with you. The all-too brief partial nudity, however, makes it hardly worth the ride. If you see this van a-rockin', then it's time for one of the odd black screen edits that punctuate the film.

But, hey, it's the height of seasonal affective disorder season and too many people have access to firearms. So there are worse things you could do than watch this movie. At least it might put an hour and twenty six minutes between you and making a really bad decision.

Chris Christie on federal spending - August 2012

"With $5 trillion in debt added over the last four years, we have no other option but to make the hard choices, cut federal spending and fundamentally reduce the size of government."

The House Republicans just made a hard choice, guv.

Whatever happened to "the 99%"? That cuts off at 500K, no?


Correct me if I am wrong, but I get the cuttoff for 99% at $506,553

http://www.whatsmypercent.com/

$450,000 is a lot of money, absolutely.

But if you wanted to see legislation that works for "the 99%", then why are you upset that the threshold for the upper tax bracket was set at $450,000 - which, for couples on the same calculator - works out to the 96th percentile.

I don't remember anyone going on about "the 98%" or "the 96%".

This piece of legislation preserved reduced tax rates for "the 99%". It's as simple as that.

And as far as campaign promises go, Obama stated that his goal was not to raise income taxes on those making less than $250K. This does not raise income taxes on those making less than $250K.

So if you don't want legislation to work for "the 99%", but some other percentile, then pick a figure and stick with it, but drop "the 99%" slogan.

Issa inadvertently admits his true nature


Rep. Issa just said something about having "served several years in this body".

Holy shit! It's true!

Where did he come from, and where did he get that body?
