  1. Well the first thing they need to look at is removing Debbie Wasserman Shultz as the Chair of the DNC. I'm supporting Hillary but DWS needs to go soon. I don't think millenials will drink her kool aid.
  2. Tulsi Gabbard is young but has a progressive trajectory and is definitely well spoken.
  3. Bernie appears finished after tonight. Of course he'll continue on. I just hope he does so in a manner that adds to his worthy causes without the damaging rhetoric.
  4. Buddhist meditation is more about gaining insight into the nature of your own mind than the cosmos. But if you meditate regularly you will indeed gain insight into natural phenomena as well. Buddhism has always been primarily about relieving suffering by learning to live in the present, mindfully. Buddhist concepts like "emptiness" and "dependent origination" actually do touch upon reality and how we can understand it better though. Very cool philosophy/religion once you delve into it.
  5. You misspelled "narrowly". Half the electorate are Democrats and/or female. Plus Trump is about to be exposed for what he really is.
  6. Cruz: "On my first day of office I will investigate Planned Parenthood" I'd love to see Cruz go up against Cecile Richards and get his ### handed back to him.
  7. Sorry Mr. Ham. Keeping your family in my thoughts.
  8. Limbaugh is his own employee so the only way he could get "fired" would be if all his syndicated stations drop him. And the only way his syndicated stations drop him is if the sponsors pull their ads. And the only way the sponsors pull their ads is if the listeners are so outraged that they threaten a boycott.And that's not going to happen because Rush's listeners aren't outraged by what Rush said . Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Quicken Loans, and AutoZone all pulled their ads today.
  9. I read Moby Dick in its entirety about 5 years ago and it did nothing for me. I was mad at myself afterwards for not quitting on it. Just finished rereading Crime and Punishment and I can heartily recommend that one for a "classic" experience. Dostoevsky can describe the human condition like no other author I've ever read. I just started on The girl with the dragon tattoo. Are the 2nd and 3rd novels pretty good?
  10. Yeah, golfers in their 30s are usually at the prime of their game. I expect Tiger to win several times next year and probably sniff a major or two. His problem will be fending off the new wave of talent coming up. The Rickie Fowlers of the world.
  11. Nice job so far Tim. I'm on board with the long version you've laid out.
  12. Finished "A Game of Thrones" and downloaded the sequel "A Clash of Kings" to my Kindle. Before I start on that one I'm reading a few books I got for Christmas. Keith Richards' autobiography "Life" and Jon Stewart's "Earth". Both awesome so far. Especially "Life". Keith Richards' narrative is constructed like he's just talking directly to you, with half sentences and slang that make it less formal and fun to read. If he's really responsible for the verbiage he's a lot more intelligent than I imagined him to be. I've got a lot more respect for him than I did before. The Stones worked their butts off to get started in the biz. Anybody that watches "The Daily Show" and enjoys it will love Stewart's book. It's written for future aliens that stumble onto our planet and explains how and why we did things. This is a first class Toilet Book.
  13. Same here. Can only figure that thread is chock full of ruination for a lot of folks' upcoming books.
