Unfortunately, some individuals make inappropriate comments, personal attacks or off topic comments. Obviously these comments cannot see the light of day on my blog. Also, some commenters have subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) references to a product they are selling without discussing the point at hand.

So far, our favourite bits involve the cue card challenged “actors” repeating the phrases “The storm is coming” and “I am afraid” with all the conviction of extras from Night of the Living Dead.Apparently, Stephen Colbert’s been having the exact same reaction. On Thursday’s episode of The Colbert Report, the pseudo right wing pundit responded to the NOM debacle with his own mock ad, which exceeds our wildest dreams.It’s tough to choose a favourite moment the 700 Club/Weather Channel reference? The woman who declares, “I am a hired actor who is willing to take any job”?I will let you decide for yourselves.
It’s a book of reporting written with a novelist’s eye. “There were gangsters that controlled the train tops,” Nazario says. To draw from those cultures and to really get at the heart of what literature is about how we as human beings navigate an indeterminate world; how we understand our place in this planet.”.
Certain ads, such as the ones relating to Disney vacations, I will click on. I will check out the prices they are offering and see if these prices are better then what I could get through other channels. I have also seen an ad for Etsy that showcased a specific kind of necklace I had been looking for.

Where this Congress was said to be the least productive in history they seemed to pull together quite nicely to almost unanimous votes in favor of the NDAA2012,HR347,and several other bills that are now law that 10 years ago Americans would have laughed if you had said this will happen soon. As well as tone down the huge and uncompromising egos of the Repubs and at least create an environment where they begin to at least hide some of the disdain they have for the lower middle and poor.
