    Terry McAuliffe Formally Pushes DREAM Act, Medicaid Expansion

    “McAuliffe, who hinted he would push for in-state tuition rates for the children of illegal immigrants during his inaugural address Saturday, said he supports “offering the children of immigrants who have been living, learning, and paying taxes in this Commonwealth for years that opportunity to study at our colleges and universities.”

    Since when have illegal immigrants paid taxes? Is he referring to sales and gas taxes?

    This seems to be a pretty good site to bookmark in your “survival/prepping reference” folder……


  4. Movie theater shooting in Tampa over texting.
    It’s really about 2 guys getting really pissed at each other and getting into a fight over something stupid. Ex-cop probably over-reacted with the shooting, but the other guy was 6’10” and pissed.

    What I want to know is why the HELL are the Tampa area sheriffs deputies wearing olive drab instead of BLUE? Are we really at this point in the militarization of our police forces? And everybody’s ok with that? I’m not. This is NOT ok.

    Hey Grunt, are you any good at Trigonometry? I kinda figure that as an engineer, you gotta be at least conversant with it. . .

    • Name your trigon-agony. πŸ˜€

        lol, Well. . . for this story I’m writing, I gotta figure out the distance between Beta Casseopia (Caph) and Alpha Aries (Hamal). I have an equation, and I can get the variables, but I want someone(s) to check my work. I’ll be stretching and fiddling with enough else in this that I’d like to get this right. . .

        And no, I can’t find any easy charts or calculators online for this. Imma have to do actual maths– oh noes!!!

    CMT Promotes New Southern Reality Show with Dixie Stereotypes

    Ugh. πŸ™„ I hate us Southerners being portrayed as dumbass backwoods idiots. I get highly offended by it.

    • That’s actually one of my biggest peeves about liberals. They talk all day about how broadminded they are, but they’re the biggest bigots when it comes to country-folk who aren’t like them. And the irony is extreme, because in my experience, those country people are more truly tolerant and broadminded than the idiots sitting in coffee-houses bitching about the environment.

      Also, from what I heard, A&E got burned by Duck Dynasty because they intended for it to be a “laugh at the hillbillies” kinda show, and it developed into something else entirely. Phil, in particular, made monkey’s out of them. I think that’s why they tried to fire him.

        Hubby and I never knew what the show was about until 6 months ago, when we finally saw an episode. Hubby at first thought it was going to be the typical Hollywood view of Southerners; we both were surprised halfway into the episode.

    I guess that some guys will do anything for a little piece of tail……

    …and Penn seems to a)be more stupid than most guys; and b)be desperately horney.

    Now, Charlize Theron is a pretty cute chick…but, if she said “Me or the guns,” to me, she’d find herself standing on the curb out front trying to hitch a ride before she could bat her eyelashes.

    • What a maroon. Notice how his 2 sentences of explanation were essentially incoherent. I wonder if he’s had a coherent thought his whole life.

      Notice the other attendees?
      “Bette Midler, Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman, Kathryn Bigelow and Emma Thompson also attended the swanky charity affair.”

      With the possible exception of Michael Douglas, these are some of the most idiotic, drooling, leftards on the planet. And the most repulsive, even if some are good looking while they’re being repulsive. If I were stuck in an elevator with Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler for 10 minutes, I might slit my own throat.
