Hrmmm... The wife came home smelling of Indian food. And preheated the oven to make frozen pizza. Talk about a let down.

Finally got annoyed enough at Senators Grassley and Ernst...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Frankly, I'm appalled. It's one thing to vociferously disagree with the sitting President, but another to directly undermine his authority by effectively threatening to ignore/gut/default on any agreements he makes. This goes well beyond the nuclear talks in Iran, as you've now just put the world on notice that they can't trust the President's word. Not because of his character, but yours. Because it really isn't that they can't trust President Obama, it's that they can't trust YOU to honor American agreements as made by the Office of the President. Think also of 2016. You want a Republican President. What if the Democratic Senators undermined all of his or her negotiations by bullying the international diplomatic corps? That's what you're doing. You're acting like children on a playground, telling the others that as soon as the teacher leaves, you'll take their toys.

I'll admit that I disagree with your politics in general, and I dislike the crass and callous stances taken by you and the other Tea Party neo-cons, but this is beyond party politics, and you are all skirting treason. Had this letter been written by Democrats, I would write this same letter, but with a heavy heart, rather than an enraged mind. 

For me personally, I'll give a measure of respect to you, or any of the others, who will admit that it was a mistake, apologize to the Office and the Person of the President of the United States, and issue a statement that pledges to support and fulfill, to the letter of the law, any agreements made by President Obama. That should give you the wriggle room needed to weasel out of honoring all of his agreements, but still give lip service to being honest and honorable officials.

Respectfully,

Kenneth Cummins

Finally pulled the trigger and ordered this and a Zaku II Char HGUC 1/144 to go along with it. I would have sought out a local store to order from, but had a GC that wasn't doing anything else...

My research, info from +Isaac Sher, +David Hill, and an examination of my wallet points to HGUC 1/144 being my target grade/scale...

I did some more research on the model, and apparently there are 2 versions. The one here was produced in 2001, and there's one produced in 2009. The newer one has amazing panel lining (one reviewer compared it to PG lining), but there are some issues with the accessories and articulation that leave it mostly a toss up. I'm glad I got the 2001 version, mainly because the beam sword is actually transparent plastic, and the new version is solid opaque plastic. Perhaps I'll get the new kit sometime, and see about swapping the accessories around...

Introduction
These are the things I am interested in:
  1. Role Playing Games
  2. Video Games
  3. Board Games (including miniatures games)
  4. Geekdom/Technology
  5. Programming (Android/Java, Perl, Javascript)
  6. Books & Movies (Sci-Fi & Fantasy mostly)

  8. Parenting
I tend to post very little, but can often be counted on for snarky or obscure comments. I don't mind occasional political or religion/science posts, as long as they are respectful of alternate opinions (of course, I'm always willing to overlook that if they align with my own personal views).
 
If you post sexual/erotic content, please leave me out of those circles. I can mute public posts, but I'd just as soon not see the triggers... Besides, I'm usually on my work computer. :)
