How The Sex Pistols saved Christmas

1977.
  For the families of the striking fire fighters, Christmas 1977 was going to be a difficult one. With little or no money coming in, celebrations, presents, and even food were on ration. But something quite wonderful happened on that Christmas Day in Merrie England, when four of the country’s allegedly most reviled people brought happiness and festive gifts to the firefighters and their families. This was Christmas Day 1977, when The Sex Pistol...

This may be the most inane political ad I've seen in support of Joni Ernst. That includes an ad touting her knowledge of hog castration, pig shit, and ads calling Bruce Braley "too extreme for Obama". 

The Senate race in Iowa has been negative since the get go, and it's now bordering on ludicrous.

I do find it amusing that both campaigns are using the same tagline "Too extreme for Iowa" on a regular basis.

It also, BTW doesn't mean you are free to say whatever you want without consequences from the government. The Govt has an overriding interest in public security and order, which the courts have always viewed as being more important that any of us forcing others be the unwilling and unwitting basin to catch verbal diarrhea. We are not allowed, even with political speech, to incite unrest.

The 1st amendment certainly assumes social responsibility before any nonsense about absolute freedom. The prior comes before the latter- without the first, there is no protection for the second.

There is a difference between a belief in predestination and the adoption of fatalism as a guiding ideology.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, and it is the only night I will ever spend in a Studio Plus. The bed was as comfortable as a piece of slate, the room was dingy and the entire floor (which was non-smoking) reeked of smoke. This hotel has zero redeeming qualities.

For some unknown reason, one of my old bosses thought the sushi here was good. The only thing worth eating is the soft serve ice cream. I'm not a fan of buffets, but this may be the worst buffet I've come across.

Best steak house in CR (which is sad since it's a chain). Be prepared to wait for a very, very long time. The "Cotton-eyed Joe" routine gets very annoying.
