Re: Forum Usage Tip from Stonewall

Well, here's a ray of hope anyway.

However things turn out in the Senate, the crowd of Pubics (thanks, Wise One, I'll use it) in the House are likely to kill sanity and Net Neutrality.

Book review: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff Review by Andrew Sullivan The Sunday Times, January 14 2018 The core reason to believe almost everything in Michael Wolff’s devastating exposé of the Trump White House is that we knew all of it already.

Re: crux's corner...(self directed exile in the House)

Omigod, you believe that stuff? "The Memo" is McCarthy-like propaganda with one purpose ... to deflect and dishonor honorable public employees investigating probably criminal behavior by a number of people connected with the Trump administration. Trump knows the truth, and wants to keep it...

Re: Evolution, Is it Fact or Fiction

I found yet https://www.facebook.com/TheScienceLovers/videos/184597218774098/ another clear explanation of why we think the Theory of Evolution is sound. It works for me. And I guarantee it won't work for head-in-the-sand religious fundamentalists like the Taliban and our own home-grown variety of t...

When even Fox News finds Donald Trump too much to swallow, you realize he has a really big problem.

Re: Stonewall's Chatter (Running the Forum, tech, etc.)

I just ran across this http://www.vox.com/technology/2017/1/23/14341506/ajit-pai-fcc-chair highly disturbing news . Stonewall kind of hit a bullseye on predicting this. I love the Internet, for all the things it does now plus its amazing enabling of innovation and new business. If the Republicans ge...

Say what you will about Donald Trump, but you will have to admit that the man knows how to delegate tasks efficiently within his administration.

Re: The Donald, world's greatest @§§ńöɭȇ

The news just gets worse and worse. I have always thought of Donald J. Trump as scum of the earth but the news of the Transition is terrifying. I am not exaggerating. The people he is handing the keys to our democratic form of government to are truly horrible. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/201...

Nothing that appears in Breitbart deserves any credence. It is utter shit, the only outlet in the world that can make Fox TV look respectable by comparison. Trump just announced that he's officially hired Breitbart as his Ministry of Propaganda, a match truly made in Hell. For something both importa...

Re: Your Election May Last more than 4 Hours

Cruxie (and evidently all Republicans) are not capable of grasping the simplest of mathematical facts: when taxes are levied as a percentage of income, people with larger incomes will pay more than those with smaller incomes. They also seem to think that very rich people should pay a lower percentag...

Re: Local Publications

I never looked at it that way, but now that you've alerted us I've been paying attention. You're right. The News-Gazette is the most bland publication ever.

Re: Rockbridge Life & Culture

This is not exactly specific to Rockbridge County, but it is an opportunity for Virginians to perform in a major new motion picture being filmed here. If this is for you or anybody in your family or circle of friends, let them know about this http://wsls.com/2015/06/16/open-casting-calls-for-major-m...
