Is Bill Maher so stoned he no longer prepares for his once a week show? Or is he so fixated on his Islam-itself-is-the-problem crusade that he is swallowing Sheldon Adelson's swill? 

The New Yorker points out some facts Maher would've had at his fingertips - had he been preparing.  Maher had bupkis.

He used to be fairly intelligent.

hmm, I don't know... I ran across this guy a couple of weeks ago, and I don't think he's quite up to par. He'll have some big shoes to fill (ironically).

This is not new information - just another reminder that a conversation that appears to be about legal issues is really about other things. 
What is likely to bedevil Republicans on this issue is not the amount of toughness they bring to the arena -- Democrats have often gone along with many of the harsh measures -- but the mismatch between what the right-wing base demands and what the pu...

Message posted by the mayor of Ferguson.
Positive Reminder:
Peace is in positive thinking, release the e.g.o. and be a positive thinker!
Peace is simple. Truth is simple. Kindness is simple.
Believe that positive thinking is easy and it is.
Believe that positive thinking is difficult and it is. Our belief defines the results.

Do not obscure the simplicity of positive thinking with the complexities of negative thinking - In my humble opinion, negative thinking is rooted in the e.g.o. (Exiting God/Good Out). Be a host to positive thinking, not a prisoner to negative thinking. Remember negative thinking judges. Have you judged someone to later learn that your judgment was incorrect?

Most importantly be gently with yourself as you elevate yourself to being a remarkable positive thinker.
"Empowering YOU to Empower You!"

Is the justification of poetry's ways to tech the opposite of theodicy?
"We're all going to die — and poems can help us live with that." In a charming and funny talk, literary critic Stephen Burt takes us on a lyrical journey with some of his favorite poets, all the way down to a line break and back up to the human urge to imagine.

When even a conservative magazine like the Economist is telling us "come on, this is big and it can be really good!" it's time for the country to move forward on immigration reform and bringing Latinos into the decision making process. 
The rise of Latinos is a huge opportunity. The United States must not squander it. To read this article for free, visit our hub page via:

We had great experiences over several years boarding our dogs there. The place is beautiful: rollling hills with acres of space, a big pond, etc. The dogs play in big, happy groups & always seem sad to leave the place. Roland even managed to train our feisty (read: pig-headed, embarrassingly spoiled) lakeland terrier to obey almost like a normal dog -- which I predicted would be impossible -- so I can attest to their skill and persistencem in the face of daunting odds. (BTW, in contrast, when we had to leave our new dog (golden retriever-poodle mix - totally chill) in an overnight place near our house, he came home with a new, aggressive attitidue toward strange dogs - not a positive development. We're sticking with Patrick Canine in the future).

I have 3 immediate family members there, so it's a place with a lot of intense memories. My only complaint is that for cremations, they only allow 1 family member to attend. It felt weird to have this major event treated like an administrative detail was weird. I hope they change this. As for Thomas Fredlik's joke, Gunn does have plenty of future MDs, so I'm sure exploration was been discussed. However, as one of the jr. high and high school students who hung out there sometimes late at night, it was comforting to have ancestors watching over my early experiments in ... never mind. FYI, all the students treated the place with surprising respect.

I knew they were good, cheap, and very conscientious all the 3 or 4 years I lived in the lower Haight and took my clothes to them. Now that I've moved to SOMA, I realize they are WAY better than anyone I've gone to since. They're open insanely long hours - I would drop off at 7:30 AM to get to work by 8 AM, and they were always there, plus Saturdays and most holidays. They got out stains other cleaners couldn't get out. Burning Man mud, wine stains, dog stains, etc., on silk, leather, etc., - no problem. They'd find my clothes every time without complaining though I'd lost my ticket again and again. If a button got knocked of, they're replace it (even on shirts with cheap, crappy buttons). We had to clean a huge pile of stuff (don't ask why), so they gave us a huge discount. I had an old briefcase of my dad's, mildewed from being out in the garage for years. They said they'd see what they could do, I said I knew it might be impossible, but I'd pay anyway. They cleaned it 5 times, getting almost all the smell out, then wouldn't take my money since they hadn't gotten it out 100%. In SOMA I can't find anyone a 1/10 as good.
