  1. So is reason taking today off?

    1. Dunno. Not me.

    2. Probably. Obama is in charge, so everything is ok. Liberty is secured, not much to report about. I assume the mag will go out of business in the next couple of years, assuming the GOP loses the House.

      1. I’m still hoping Boner gets an override from the House GOP and ObamaCare’s repealed.

        Tread softly, my man, for you tread on my dreams.

        1. That might happen in 5 years, but in the meantime it still has to get through the Senate AND Obama’s veto pen. And I seriously doubt that the Repubs will pick up enough seats in 2014 to do a veto override.

          1. But the point is that there’s a chance. The GOP has to try. God damn it, THEY HAVE TO TRY.


        2. I’m still hoping Boner gets an override from the House GOP and ObamaCare’s repealed.

          That’s code for something that’s NSFW, right?

          1. I’d be happy to walk you through it sometime, if you can get drunk enough.

          2. It involves Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Chris Christie, and a studded baseball bat. You don’t want to know.

        3. Why would Obama’s new bitch try and argue with The One?

          If there are any rumblings of repealing, The Speaker and RNC are going to stifle them post-haste.

          I can’t tread softly, I’m wearing Truth-Boots adorned with the Spurs of Clarity +3!

          1. I don’t think the Speaker or the RNC are suicidal. If repealer fervor returns, they’ll bend to the will of their party’s House majorirty (maybe even a supermajority). Fuck ’em.

            1. I’ve taken all of that into account and come to the same conclusion I’ve previously stated.

              1. Repealer “fervor” will not return, period, dot.

              2. I don’t think you can consider them suicidal. They can actually only conceptualize one way of thinking, and will not deviate from that one way. Unfortunately, it’s not the way of principles or even victory. It’s just keep spouting the same old DNC policies, only also yelling about abortion.

              The last part you do have correct, though.

              1. I’m still holding out hope. STOP FUCKING MY DREAMS.

                1. Hope is just something for the world to beat out of you.

                  Replace it with pure black cynicism, hatred and anger. You’ll die quicker and be done with this stupid place.

  2. “over 28,000 people watched the film in Milwaukee’s Miller Field”

    It’s Miller PARK.

    Still an awesome documentary.

  3. Sometimes thing s just make you wonder dude.


  4. YAY WAR!

    Have you all lost your fucking minds?

  5. All soldier are brave and strong man of his people.
