Yes. Well, part 1 of a 12 part suite of course.

Nothing so nice as looking at the figures of old guys responsible for most of the idiocy in the world. 

At least my (and Logan's) old guys made music.

Unlike DT's last album, that article seems to stick in your head.

Well, you can say what you want about the music, but the lyrics are pretty complex and explore a wide range of themes.

Exactly.
PA is so slow/lame now though no one bit...Cry  in them olden days I'd surely have gotten comments about it.
 
 
Hm a discussion of the deep philosophical lyrics of St Anger? Well "Im madly in anger with you" and "kill kill kill kill! KILL kiiiiiiiiiiilllllllll" always struck me deeply
I forget, I think I rated it 2.5/5 on MMA which to most people made me a troll since I was proclaiming my love for it.
 
 
And to tie in: I believe James was libertarian, he even used the dont tread on me flag way before it was cool.
 
Edit: Also NY Giants sign Peyton Hillis, everybodys favorite Ron Paul supporting, tank of a running back!

Sorry, you used this once before on my FB Tongue
 
 
 
So same sh*t different day, sure...maybe this time things went a little farther than most expected but result was the same: final hour bill to save the country.
Boy I'm getting tired of this, too bad in a few months we can repeat it yet again.

Indeed. I keep hearing all this talk about how the Democrats won and Republicans lost. Honestly, outside of the sequestration part and the income verification for Obamacare (which are both fairly minor compared to the big picture of what they both represent), I don't think anyone won and it makes both look a bit worse for the wear. And like you said, they just kicked the can a bit down the road again. So we get to do it all over again in January.

I'm not sure how the Democrats look worse.

I think to the general public, both sides are going to come off looking a bit worse for the wear because of the lack of willing to compromise. Outside of a few, that was fairly common for both R's and D's.
