  1. Chris, this is the best show I ever watched on the telly. Let me warn you, it doesn't get any less depressing.
  2. Johnny Cash was one of the best of *any* generation. He was rockin it well into his 70's. Love him!
  3. Chris, Why do you want Senator Edwards to submit to a DNA test regarding the parentage of the child? What difference does it make? Whatever the result, he's a lying sack of shit scum-bag. I could care less who he fucks or whether he may or may not have fathered a child with some bimbo not his wife. Mick
  4. Chris, The incompetence of the PGC Police, the arrogance of their chief (refusing to apologize and reluctantly clearing the Mayor and his wife's name)makes my blood boil. I've written several letters to the department expressing my outrage but have not yet received a response. Unbelievable! Mick
  5. Chris Grieb: "I have mention that with the news there is a group who is more upset than others. That is the right wing mailers. With Teddy being gone who can they warn as their menace. For left-wing mailer had the same feeling when Jesse Helms left the Senate." I don't know, I suppose W is far more of a lightening rod than the racist and homophobic Jesse Helms. As for Senator Kennedy, I have lost loved ones to cancer; my heart grieves for him and for those who care about him. I know most on this board don't share Kennedy's politics, but as for me, I wouldn't wish cancer on my worst enemy. Sham
  6. Who Cares? I just want my ronpaulphoto.com. Oh the cult of personality!
  7. Well, what did you have in mind as possibly false on that page? Just threw it out for discussion. What I do know is Obama is a rabid fan of entitlements and big government. That's enough, no? So is Hillary and the hypocrite McCain; what's your point? Most of that shit on dontvoteobama.com is just stupid nonsense. There's enough reason to oppose all three of these stooges without making up shit.
  8. Kat, Is this 100,000,000 on top of the child support payments? He should have listened to his kids. As I understand it they implored him to get a pre-nup. I've never met Heather Mills, but I agree with your assessment of her; what a bitch! Mick
  9. When thinking about Israel's relationship with her Arab neighbors, I'm often reminded of Golda Meir, who said: Mick
  10. Are disagreeing with my interpretation of Ahmadinejad on the conflict? Or are you disagreeing with my feeling toward our (the US) involvement with Israel. Thanks, Dustan Both.
  11. You make a good point regarding Bollinger's introduction. His remarks were appropriate, but he made them at the wrong time and place. As for your points regarding the Israeli/Palestinian problem, I profoundly disagree with you. Mick
  12. In fact, he was invited to speak which is even worse. Inviting him to an intellectual encounter grants him the unearned sanction that he is an honest and reasonable person. He's clearly identified himself as being the opposite. Nothing that he says at Columbia can be trusted and, thus, it's fruitless for the organizers and attendees. The dark side is that Ahmadinjad will try to use the event to further his ends and this makes the invitation by Columbia immoral. I had edited my post before your post; yes, he was invited. I disagree with your assessment of Columbia; I thought President Bollin
  13. Dustan, Did you watch it? I did not; I was at work. What were your thoughts on the introduction by the Columbia's President, Ahmadinejad's presentation and the Q and A session with the Columbia's students? Also, should he have been invited to speak? Mick
  14. Russell Roberts writes excellent novels on economic issues. The Choice: A Fable of Free Trade and Protectionism The Invisible Heart: An Economic Romance I know someone who has a copy of these books and can loan them to Peri. ;)
  15. I take it your not a Seinfeld fan. Phil Morris, the actor who played Jackie Chiles, made his feature film debut in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
  16. Michael, Before Sanders was elected, San Diego was on the verge of bankruptcy due to the incompetency of two previous mayors and a corrupt city council. He has provided stable leadership and San Diego is back on the right track to fiscal sanity. What makes Sanders' decision to back gay marriage so courageous is that he is facing a well financed socially conservative candidate in Steve Francis as he prepares for reelection. San Diego is not San Francisco or Los Angeles; there is a sizable and influential socially conservative community, whose reactionary irrationality is fomented by talk radio
  17. John, you might try whosaliveandwhosdead.com.
  18. I'm proud of my mayor. A Republican For Marriage Be sure and watch the touching video of his announcement. Mick
  19. No need to worry; he's been dead a couple of years. Johnny Cochran will forever live in my heart because he askedThe Question (during the O.J. trial): Ah akse' yo'. What DO a black man sound like? He sure was a piss-cutter. I don't know if Cochran ever made Harvard Law Review but he had the chops for it, so that question, asked in the vernacular, is a doozey. Ba'al Chatzaf Johnny Cochran represented Geronimo Pratt, a man who was truly a victim of unrestrained state power, unlike O.J.
  20. No need to worry; he's been dead a couple of years.
  21. Jim, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. My maternal grandmother is 95. Although she is fine (for her age) physically, her mind is gone; we lost her years ago. That you were able to interact with your grandmother up until the last month of her 93 years is a blessing. Keep on playing music. Mick
  22. Bob, Seeger's songs in the late 1930's and early 1940's tended to toe the Stalinist line. Mick
