You probably should have paid the civil court judgments, bro.
It was kinda tough to pay off those judgments when they happened while I was 17

I dunno. The congressional leadership right now is basically opposed to their own views from 10 years ago. Is it because Obama is president? No idea. But Obama doesn't understand negotiating very well - his first offer is a reasonable compromise to which they say no fucking way, then he gives a compromise that gives them 95% of what they want.
to the first: yes. to the second: he's learned a bunch, it's only taken 3 years.
Republicans probably won't win the Senate.
it's funny because they should be destroying the democrats right now, in the preidential, house, and senate elections.
Agree with your points. I guess I just see them leading of where the Bush Administration left off. They won't be as far to the right as the House is but maybe in line with the Senate. So I guess where the political battles have been fought not much with change. Some Obama policies will also be rolled back I'd have to assume. SCOTUS change could be huge though.
so republicans admit, albeit mostly tacitly, that the bush administration sucked. so if it sucked, but they're continuing literally the exact same plan as he had, what do they think he did poorly?
There really weren't many changes when they had control. We got a conservative health care fix.
the house had some decently progressive legislation, it just got bogged down/died in the senate.
And then he promises he'll somehow fix everything by doing it, too. Guy's a douche.
bingo.

based off of a debate where he lied or was deliberately vague on all of his policies. what a fucking country we live in.

It's pretty great and you suck.
They are doing well this season, but I have considered them overrated in the past. I do get a kick out of the fact that Urban Meyer came out of retirement to coach a team that Gator fans despise.

Scathing reviews of classic literature.


Quote:
“Mr. Scott Fitzgerald deserves a good shaking. Here is an unmistakable talent unashamed of making itself a motley to the view. The Great Gatsby is an absurd story, whether considered as romance, melodrama, or plain record of New York high life.” — L.P Hartley, The Saturday Review, 1925



Quote:
“Mr. Melville is evidently trying to ascertain how far the public will consent to be imposed upon. He is gauging, at once, our gullibilty and our patience. Having written one or two passable extravagancies, he has considered himself privileged to produce as many more as he pleases, increasingly exaggerated and increasingly dull…. In bombast, in caricature, in rhetorical artifice — generally as clumsy as it is ineffectual — and in low attempts at humor, each one of his volumes has been an advance among its predecessors…. Mr. Melville never writes naturally. His sentiment is forced, his wit is forced, and his enthusiasm is forced. And in his attempts to display to the utmost extent his powers of “fine writing,” he has succeeded, we think, beyond his most sanguine expectations… We have no intention of quoting any passages just now from Moby-Dick. The London journals, we understand, “have bestowed upon the work many flattering notices,” and we should be loth to combat such high authority. But if there are any of our readers who wish to find examples of bad rhetoric, involved syntax, stilted sentiment and incoherent English, we will take the liberty of recommending to them this precious volume of Mr. Melville’s.” — New York United States Magazine and Democratic Review, 1852



Quote:
On The Catcher in the Rye: “This Salinger, he’s a short story guy. And he knows how to write about kids. This book though, it’s too long. Gets kind of monotonous. And he should’ve cut out a lot about these jerks and all that crumby school. They depress me.” — James Stern, The New York Times, 1951

What are you guys, the liberals, going to do if Obama loses?


I guess it would be time to stop sitting on my ass collecting government checks and go get a job to buy birth control for my bisexual lover.

Seriously, I'd accept a 4 year Romney presidency if it meant we got Hillary in 2016.

Debt at a 6 year low

Quote:
U.S. debt has shrunk to a six-year low relative to the size of the economy as homeowners, cities and companies cut borrowing, undermining rating companies’ downgrading of the nation’s credit rating.
Reduced borrowing means there is less competition for the U.S. Treasury Department as it sells debt to fund spending programs to help the nation recover from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Total indebtedness including that of federal and state governments and consumers has fallen to 3.29 times gross domestic product, the least since 2006, from a peak of 3.59 four years ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Private- sector borrowing is down by $4 trillion to $40.2 trillion.

I've never been of the mindset that a classic is beyond criticism. That said, who gave that last guy a job? That's not even a review, that's just him grunting in disapproval lol
