    Shooting in San Bernardino California

    ^We're on a slippery slope these days. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more instances like that of Clock Boy in which an American citizen who happens to also be Muslim and with Arabic features plans out a theatrical-like event to bait law enforcement and/or the local police force into a...

    SJW Suey Park rejects SJWism, Calls it "Violent" "Cult-like"

    I went to university with this chick and even then at 19 it was clear she had some serious mental/psychological issues. You can imagine my disbelief when she was for a while leading the SJW front with the whole ban-Colbert nonsense. I hope she really did get the mental help she needed, and glad...

    Just saw American Beauty, now thinking about teaching English abroad

    The Old Testament thread

    Ecclesiastes is one of my all-time favorite works of literature; I recommend it to theist and atheist friends alike. The prose is so powerful it's hard not to believe that the words came from another plane; from 'above the sun,' as Solomon might say....

    B.B. King was one of the main reasons I ever picked up the guitar. I was around fourteen when I first heard 'Lucille' and the song and BB's smooth delivery completely blew me away. He was one of the few blues guitarists with a truly authentic style and sound – he could literally play one note...

    Do you use financial advisors?

    If you're going to go the route of the financial advisor, make sure your advisor is acting as a legal fiduciary, as this assures he/she must, by law, act in the best interest of his/her clients. The overwhelming majority of 'advisors' out there are anything but – they're simply salesmen...
