  1. LOL There isn't a single Hillary supporter on Earth that will vote for Trump over Bernie.
  2. A little over $2K Let's just say it worked out really well that I got married in August... I actually planned on it, but didn't end up in the ocean. I didn't even know they were letting people go in on Friday, a girl we met in the pool on Saturday told us about it. I had planned on it but especially on Sunday we had such a great spot, about 15 rows back Page Side so I didn't want to leave. I did take a stroll past just to check out the scene at one point. As far as the drug lords, no. Mexican All-inclusives are locked up like fortresses. The only Mexicans you would have access to were the people working there. Luckily we met some extremely awesome and generous people at the bar Friday night, basically took care of the whole weekend for the 5 of us free of charge. Seemed like there was a ton of stuff going around. ....and I get to come back for a blizzard this weekend. I wanna go back.
  3. Unfortunately home from Mexico! Was really an incredible weekend. Honestly, I couldn't ask for anything more. The ultimate dream vacation for a Phish nerd like me. If anyone has questions about the event I'd be happy to give answers.
  4. Hahaha came in to post this. You can tell he's just barely holding back his utter rage. Yes, the entire country is laughing at you. Props to those real-life trolls. Heroes, every last one of them.
  5. BOWIE opener coming Friday night! They should really do a whole Bowie set.
  6. Definitely not a 1 percenter, but it was certainly a big help that I got married in August... Went to the 1/1 show at MSG. Everyone hated the setlist, but I thought they played pretty well. And I got my slave, so I was happy. Really can't imagine what it's gonna be like in Mexico. I've been to Cancun all-inlcusives before, just never with a few thousand Phish fans Will report back next week or whenever I can function normally again!
  7. Sweet, a Phish thread!! Anyone else getting insanely excited for MEXICO next week?!?!?!?! :pickle:
  8. Who is supporting them? Lots of conservatives over at freerepublic: You looked through all of free republic and found one post supporting these guys? Your second two quotes do not support these guys, they are just making tangential quipsI see you conveniently ignored my post about the comments on FoxNews.com They're sickening. These people think these guys are heroes standing up to Obama's tyrannical federal government. Utterly clueless.
  9. You are ignoring years of criminal activity and killings laid at the feet of the militia movement. Including the murder of police officers. While the country wets themselves over refugees they ignore the danger next door. It's real and I am not off my rocker to point it out. Perhaps those ignoring it are the ones with a rocker problem.I don't think civil rights era killings of police officers should be laid at the feet of the BLM movement, nor do I see why the actions of previous federal government protests should be laid at the feet of these people.This is a peaceful protest right now. It's certainly illegal, but so are a lot of other peaceful protests. Until that changes I don't see why it should be treated as anything different. Yes all peaceful protests include threats to kill federal law enforcement and proclamations of being willing to die at the hands of those officials to spark a civil war. Just like Gandhi these guys.They said they would defend themselves if attacked. Until that happens it's peaceful. I walk by protests every week. The crap people say is pretty outrageous. It doesn't mean they are going to follow through. It's possible it won't end peacefully, but I don't see any reason to believe that right now. Yeah, I mean just because they brought a bunch of guns and said they will use them if anyone tried to remove them from federal property shouldn't lead anyone to believe it won't end peacefully.... If they wanted to have a peaceful protest, they would've left their guns at home.
  10. Actually it's only illegal, from a firearms perspective, if they take the weapons inside the building (Source : TITLE 18 > PART I CHAPTER 44 § 930) . Otherwise the firearms themselves are of no consequence in this example. So what you're saying is that what they are doing is in fact illegal. 18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracySeditious conspiracyIf two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
  11. Taking over a federal building armed with a gun is most definitely illegal. There is a HUGE difference between a peaceful protest and what these guys are doing. If they wanted it to be a "peaceful" protest, they shouldn't have brought guns. And they definitely shouldn't have called for people all over the country to come join them with their guns as well. Maybe there's another way you can spin this favorably for the militia.
  12. Who is supporting them? Check out the comments on Fox News.com I imagine you have the site bookmarked already.
  13. Many?I argue with conservatives in this forum all the time. Lately it seems like that's all I do around here. I can't recall a single conservative in this thread who has defended this seizure. Check out the comments on FoxNews.com..... Warning: They will make you sick to your stomach
  14. Pretty sad that many Conservatives seem to be supporting these guys. Taking over a federal building armed with guns and threatening violence if they are removed. Doesn't get much more Anti-American than that.
  15. Maybe they should be rallying against ####postings like this Huh? They're mad that the judge put them back in jail. Their "response" is an armed take over of a federal building. Doesn't really make much sense. Seems like they're just using that case as an excuse for their insanity at this point anyway.
  16. My favorite quote about Radiohead: "I can't wait till the new album comes out so I can hate it the first 5 or 6 times and then fall in love with it" I think that's usually how it goes to get into them as well. I always liked some of their stuff from OK Computer, but was never a big fan. Then when In Rainbows came out I was completely hooked. The best piece of advice I can give anyone for listening to Radiohead is: LISTEN ON HEADPHONES!!! Even after being a fan for years, I was completely blown away with how amazing they sound on a good set of headphones. There is a TON of stuff going on you would never hear normally.
  17. Boy I hope so! I have like 5 RB2s behind DWill so I've had a lot of tough decisions. I get the feeling I'd be crazy to sit West against Cleveland though. I'd love for Ware to be out, but I'm not sure I can sit him either way. Guy is a legit threat to take it to the house on any play.
  18. maybe because it's not official Isn't Adam Schefter famous because he tweets out rumors that aren't "official" yet?
  19. I wonder why Jaws had to retract the statement so quickly.
  20. Not to mention a guy spearing someone with their helmet doesn't really come off as a person who's scared of what the other team will do to them...
  21. Looks like I'll be stuck rolling with Cousins against my Eagles, or even Osweiller if I have to wait. Lost Dalton last week, didn't pick up another QB since I had Brees. As you would guess, the guy I'm playing in the finals picked up 2 QBs last night. (He already had Brady and Wilson)
  22. In regards to the finale stinking - If I remember correctly most seasons have been like this, where the 2nd to last episode is really the climax and the finale is just tying up loose ends and setting things up for the next season. Game of Thrones does it the same way. I was laughing when Carrie went back to her house at the end, I said to my wife "Hi honey, I'm home! All that crazy terrorist stuff is over now, so let's just forget that I'm a lunatic and go back to normal!!" And then, of course, that's exactly what she said pretty much verbatim.
  23. Obviously I'm being optimistic as an owner, but the same could've been said for the 2nd half of the game last week, yet he came back in, and played well. Also to my knowledge there isn't any risk that he's gonna make it worse, no matter what he should be fine for OTA's and all that. And as someone else said, the guy will do everything he can to play. He's the team captain, he leads by example. If he decides to sit out a "meaningless" game that he might be able to play in, what does that say to the rest of the team?
  24. Yeah I wouldn't mess with him in non-PPR. Donald Brown will still get the early-down work I imagine. Cut him a while back, not mad about it because he's way too risky to start in my 10-team standard league.
  25. This is my 6th year of having Brees in a keeper, and we haven't really run into this kind of situation before. I was really worried about that last night, because like you said they have nothing to play for. Hopefully it's a good sign that he went back out there in a game that didn't matter. Unfortunately for me, if he's starting I'll have to play with him and deal with the consequences. No way I could stomach Brees going off on my bench in the finals.
