When social conservatives spit hate all over the airwaves inside their conservative demographic bubble their ratings increase.  It's good for business - just ask Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, or Ted Cruz.  If you throw red meat to the wolves, you can make a good living.  

On the other hand, when social conservatives get elected to office and start legislating said hate and intolerance the reaction is quite different.  You see, outside the conservative media bubble people can find social conservative values disconcerting, or intrusive, if not downright offensive. 

Take Indiana's "Freedom of Religion Act" for instance.   I'd like to point out "freedom of religion" is a US Constitutional right, we don't need Indiana's help to get there; we've been there for more than 200 years now.  What the social conservative majority in the Indiana state legislature have done is legislate a way for businesses to not serve gay customers if they don't want to (under the guise of religious beliefs).   The backlash has been swift and decisive.  George Takei, Hillary Clinton, Apple, Yelp,  Angie's List, NCAA, the Indiana Pacers (the list goes on) have all spoken out against the new law and many have called for an economic boycott of the state.

Every Republican running for higher office will now be asked publicly how they stand on gay rights.  The poor bastards will be torn between the mouth-foaming social conservative crowd and the "rest of the country".

Playing off social conservative hate and intolerance works great if all you want are some media ratings.  Hell you might even be able to get elected spewing that crap, but that is where the fairy tale ends.  When your values of hate and intolerance start making their way into our law books, well that's where most people tend to draw the line.  Ironic these people think they are protecting their religion of love and forgiveness, by legislating bigotry and prejudice.

and also happy 'tater' day

Very well stated

My concern, since elections are secretive and with all the gerrymandering, well, people like Gomert are still getting elected

This is the same guy Bush appointed UN ambassador after Bolton had publicly stated he thought the UN should be abolished. ....

The City of Austin has awarded Jimmy Kimmel with a custom made BBQ rib shaped trophy to recognize Kimmel as a small business champion for his support of local businesses.  

"Kimmel recently taped a week of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” here during South By Southwest (#SXSW).  The funnyman has made a point of featuring local Austin businesses in his broadcasts."

Happy Tater Day

Tater Day is a large festival in Benton, Kentucky.

It was started in 1843 as a celebration of spring, and a time when all of the townsfolk would get together and trade in sweet potato slips.  It is also the oldest continuous trade day in the United States, in which goods such as guns, 'coon hounds, tobacco or livestock are swapped or sold.  Tater Day brings to town carnival rides, games, a market, a potato eating contest, mule pulls, and a "biggest potato" contest.

Russia has announced big plans for a superhighway that would effectively connect all the continents in the Northern Hemisphere, making it possible to travel from New York westward through Russia and on to London without the need for an airplane or a boat.
Russian transportation officials have announced plans to construct a high-speed railway and motorway to connect the Asian continent to Alaska, creating the world's longest superhighway.

+Bryce Miller it's all about the oil.  Country's don't build "bridges" unless there is something in it for them.  Alaska has very expensive oil refineries, and Russia has a whole lot of access to unrefined oil.

It wasn't that long ago that Russia decided to sell Alaska to the United States.  Perhaps they are having some seller's remorse.

i don't know why.  but i kind of do.  David Tennant Doctor Who episodes make me cry.  They always seemed so finalized, irreversible damage, he loved Rose and she loved him.  Ah fuck, here i go again.

Spurs News  - 
 
in case you missed it:
Spurs bounce back from Dallas debacle to destroy Thunder

At one point in the 4th quarter even the ESPN commentators where questioning whether or not the Spurs could lead by 50 points before the game was over.  They didn't, 46 points was the highest lead i believe.  Ending with a resounding 130-91 victory over their 8th seed rivals.

We have cameras all over public transportation on the ground.  Why don't they have live streaming cameras inside airplanes?  Why don't they stream the "black box" content as well?  Instead of searching for the data after a crash, they'd have the data already stored on a server somewhere.  Seems like the air industry needs a 21st century digital update, if you ask me.

+Jeremy Hall Not Malaysian Airlines, as I noted the airlines themselves won't do it, except Qantas before it was publicly own, but the tech industry.
If you're going to ignore what I'm saying to continue the straw man argument you want to have, go ahead, I'm done.
